  1. Did you try removing the drive cage?
  2. it could be a grounding issue. Make sure the screws are not too tight, sometimes the motherboards standoffs may touch the circuit and stuff.
  3. I used macrium reflect free for my ssd and I love it
  4. I didnt watch the whole video but the first 2 minutes are full of BS. Amplitude does not determine speed, frequency does. Having more amplitude in a signal means the waves can travel further. Having a higher frequency means more bandwidth(more data can be transmitted). A signal amplifier will not make your internet faster. Moreover, any amplifier will boost signal AND noise (unless stated otherwise). I hate guys that make videos like this, besides he looks like a psycho...
  5. almost no difference, but more ram is better if you can afford it
  6. Im using the corsair AF120 (a smaller version of the AF140) in my case. They are set to silent in my asus Qfan config and they are pretty good. Nice airflow with no noise 90% of the time. You should consider the LED version if you want something a little more appealing.
  7. IT IS NOT YOUR CPU. I just retired my 10 year old pc with a 6400 Core 2 duo , 2 gigs of ram and a gt 610 1GB. I used to play blurays, mkv and avi videos at 1080p all the time. Everything was flawless in win 10 pro 64 bit, not so much in win 7 tho. Playback was a little choppy at the beginning, but it would be ok after 30 secs of so. I think you should optimize video settings and use(force) hardware acceleration on videos. Also make sure you dont have many processes running in the background
  8. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mini-USB-Bluetooth-V4-0-Dual-Mode-Wireless-Dongle-Gold-plated-connector-CSR-4-0-Adapter/32614747610.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.21.vH07jK&ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_8,searchweb201602_5_10057_10056_10055_10049_10017_405_404_10059_407_10058_10040,searchweb201603_2&btsid=0a20443e-ef10-4e40-b543-26706912bd08 that one is white, still uses the same csr chip so i think those drivers should work too
  9. does it look like this? if you are using a csr dongle then you need these drivers https://www.dropbox.com/sh/u32no9ct2vfjcxd/AABGiB14W54WEXgMMQFlu_5Xa/CSR4.0 Harmony.zip?dl=0
  10. make sure you have the correct drivers installed, what dongle are you using?
  11. they are very similar except for a few features. I guess it comes down to personal preference. Asus has 1 more usb 3.1 port and display port BUT worse audio chip. MSI has reinfornced pic-e slots and sexier looks so idk. Im biased toward the asus for obvious reasons
  12. the asrock seems like a better deal tbh. better audio + cheaper. the z170-e does have more ports and probably better fan control, but it is up to you if you need the extra features for $20 more.
  13. ASRock used to be part of asus, even some asus boards have ASRock components so yeah it is pretty decent. And yes, it will fit perfectly in the s340
  14. it took me a while but i think i found it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157675 comes with integrated graphics, sli/crossfire etc
  15. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130892 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130902 second one comes with usb 3.1 type c, but no video output
  16. air cooling is not that difficult, but you might want to watch these videos:
  17. any H170 will do just fine, but if you want to sli/ crossfire in the future then the z170 is the only way to go. ( this is mostly due to the amount of pci-e lanes). some h170 will do crossfire but not sli. I say get a cheap z170 just in case.(that z170-e is pretty good actually)
  18. lol at the ppl saying that the i3 will stutter in games. There are plenty of videos on youtube that proof the i3 is pretty solid(even at 4k): if you still think the fx is better because it has "more cores" maybe you should get the fx-8150 (also 8 cores, so much powa) the i3 has a better upgrade path, is newer, has better power efficiency than anything amd has to offer
  19. my bad, there is a micro atx version with the h97 chipset: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/YDrG3C/asrock-motherboard-h97manniversary also http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/FkCwrH/gigabyte-motherboard-gah97md3h
  20. yeah dont worry about it, even if it had the pin only one of the fans transmits the rpm's to the motherboard
  21. well it should be fine, have you tried it yet?
