    What does a GPU have to be balanced with???

    It will get you going. Should do fine for you and I would only be concerned if you were maxing out with drives and other perfs. A 550 is the recommended usually but I can attest to running a pretty good system on a good 300 and had no issues with it. Also, if you have a 4 core or better cpu you should be just fine as well with just adding a new gpu. Some of the i3 cpus are quite good and have high clock rates. Productivity is were you want a bunch of cores and hyperthreading to make a diff.

    Opinion: Apple isn't ripping anyone off

    can you prove they don't? Oh, and by the way, How you doing "hero". Yeah, I remember you from Neowin... Plenty of unused units from locked used systems/phones that can never be used again...

    Bunk,, His company exists because of Apple and their snake oil business practices. He started it because of the lack of repairability offered by Apple for their products. If Apple wasn't in the business of scalping it's customers, his business would not exist..

    Gender-Bias at CES 2019?

    Really? This is crap. It would really be nice if this place was not taken over by SJW horseshit. MSMBC, CNN and others like them are the place for stuff like that. So did you join just to muck the place up?

    Computer dead after shoddy overclock

    Should be able to handle it on water but you know how it goes sometimes.. You can try yanking the ram and booting without and then reinstalling it to get it to reset the stored config in the bios for whats in it.

    More than likely cooked the CPU having it at 1.4... You on air or water for the cpu?

    Computer dead after shoddy overclock

    Yeah, What they said... The two bios chips are right behind the sata ports as well I see. My MSI board has a little toggle switch for the dual bios but looking at my aorus board I don't see anything for it on that board. Thanks Gigabyte,,

    Computer dead after shoddy overclock

    17) CPU/DRAM/VGA/BOOT (Status LEDs) The status LEDs show whether the CPU, memory, graphics card, and operating system are working properly after system power-on. If the CPU/DRAM/VGA LED is on, that means the corresponding device is not working normally; if the BOOT LED is on, that means you haven't entered the operating system yet. CPU: CPU status LED DRAM: Memory status LED VGA: Graphics card status LED BOOT: Operating system status LED

    2 x 128 Mbit flash Use of licensed AMI UEFI BIOS Support for DualBIOS™ PnP 1.0a, DMI 2.7, WfM 2.0, SM BIOS 2.7, ACPI 5.0 The manual sucks though.. Still haven't found the section for it.

    Yeah, it has dual bios as well. Same location..

    the little switch at the bottom right of your motherboard, just looked up your board. I have the aorus gaming 7 pro myself.. great board.

    1.4 is a bit much.. cmos clear should have gotten you back up though. Try switching to the other bios if your board has that.

    "Not responding", die out during boot. SSD failure?

    Other than a bad sata cable, more than likely a bios setting or the sata controller used. Some of the add-on ones(not intel/amd) can be problematic. try a different sata port, on another controller if your board has more than one. Make sure your using the main controller and not something like the renaissance controller like I have on my x58 system. It would give me 6gbs but was nothing but problematic, not unlike what is happening to you.. On the the 3gig intel ports I have never had an issue.

    "Not responding", die out during boot. SSD failure?

    Overheating from dust or overclocking causing an issue with the drive it sounds like to me.. Have you opened it up and checked for dust contamination? It might just be clogged up a bit.. Other than that, overclocking can cause instability with things running on the pci bus and/or the chipset. Solid state drives tend to just die, not slow way down or hang up like a traditional platter disk can. If you are clogged up and overheating you would get exactly what is going on, Random boot hangs and crashes under load when gaming and other things that are taxing on the system.
