    Battery Related Problem - Please Help!

    No problem! Should still be able to order it from said site. I'd also try the local computer stores! Let us know if you need anything else!

    Battery Related Problem - Please Help!

    If the issues do not occur while plugged in, temperatures are decent, and only seem to occur at the same battery level, then I believe the issue to be the battery. Fortunately, as this machine is not a tightly built ultra-book, accessing the battery should not be extremely difficult. If you're feeling up to it, you may consider just purchasing another battery. A quick Google search brought me here: http://www.acerlaptopbattery.co.uk/acer-aspire-e5-475g-battery.htm

    There is a decent chance that the battery is faulty. Fortunately the machine isn't that old. Did you buy a protection/warranty plan? Are you still under manufacturer warranty?

    I'd like to second @WoodenMarker. I have nothing else to add to his post I am doing well though! I hope you are as well! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

    PC Turning off on its own

    Is it still shutting down? And yes I would give that a try seeing as many other things have been tried. If you have another PSU to try, give that a go. Doesn't seem like the issue, but more times than one I have seen PSUs do weird things in desktops, power regulators in laptops, and battery issues in smartphones.

    Correct! It can certainly help us lead to knowing if we are dealing with a PSU concern though

    PC Turning off on its own

    THAT is unusual. I would reset the PC and see what happens. Please let us know if that works. I have a weird feeling that something driver related or key-combination or maybe something on the board is triggering a "false-shutdown".

    I don't think so. See my reply to your latest post.

    PC Turning off on its own

    Hmm, I am rather surprised. Fire up ASUSRealBench and run a stress test for 15 minutes using half of your RAM. Report back if it crashes. When it does crash/turn off, does it just blackscreen and reboot? Or is it like the normal shut down sequence when you get the spinning wheel when its a proper shut down procedure?

    So you do not see anything called Error 41?

    go to windows event viewer. See what the error was at the time that it occurred. Was it an Error 41?

    Possible to use Vive as a monitor?

    Hello everyone! I have a weird idea and it may have already been presented. I’m interested in purchasing a vive for use as a monitor. Basically, I want my gaming experience to be as immersive as possible but also still use a keyboard and mouse. Could I use a Vive for a screen?

    Go back into BIOS and hit the restore to default settings option. Load up everything and see if it works and report back
  14. Depends on what voltages you're putting through it. An i7 8700k with a manual vcore of 1.2 will last longer than an i7 8700k with a manual vcore of 1.4 (ON PAPER). Everyone's experience varies a little bit, though in general, the more voltage you apply, the shorter the life span. The second major detractor from CPU life is temperature. Here's an article on such: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Impact-of-Temperature-on-Intel-CPU-Performance-606/ Ultimately, if you're running your overclockable chip at "appropriate voltages and temperatures" (varies for each situation and person, but I like to generally keep chip below 85c for extended use and peak loads and keep voltage as low as it can be while remaining stable) you'll get plenty of life out of the chip! As for the specific years, I can't really say. There are so many factors or "moving parts" in that equation that I cannot give you a concrete answer. Certainly not a major life difference however! I hope that helps!

    COOLER MASTER Elite 130 - Air flow Improvement

    Oh pshh those are great temps!! I have an i7 8700k at 1.13vcore and 4.5ghz and will hit 80c after 100% load for like 10 minutes. Not worried there. GPU will peak at 78c after intensive loads. No worries there either. You're getting great temps friend! I'm really glad to hear that you're enjoying your build AND with great temperatures (with all items considered)
