    Intel NUC Giveaway

    Good luck all!
  4. Hey Everyone, So I'm building computer for a friend and after installing everything, I get no display out. After doing some trouble shooting, I believe the GPU (Gigabyte R9 280) is dead. The specs of this build can be found here: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/XZQGt6 CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H97M-D3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: A-Data XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 3GB WINDFORCE Video Card Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply Monitor: LG 22M35D 60Hz 22.0" Monitor When the GPU was removed, the system boots and I can hear the motherboard speaker. With the GPU reinstalled, all you hear are the fans spinning, nothing else happens, no display nothing. I replaced the R9 280 with my GTX 780Ti for troubleshooting, and sure enough my 780Ti works, so it's definitely not an issue with the motherboard or PSU. The R9 280 also doesn't work on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard, and I get an error code of 62 "Installation of the PCH runtime services". I have attempted the following: - Updated BIOS to latest version - no effect - Disabled on board intel integrated graphics - no effect - Switching out the RAM - no effect - Testing GPU on other system - no effect - Testing other GPUs on this system - system boots fine At this point, I am pretty sure the GPU is dead, but does anyone have any other ideas?
  5. I understand the issues with the V300, but based on installing one in my friends system, it gets the work done, and he really doesn't care too much at performance, hes still very value oriented. I've swapped the GPU out with a R9 280 for now, and I'll see if I can push his budget for an R9 290. He's not too concerned about power efficiency as hes in a dorm, and the system still doesn't come very close to 500W, but if I can push his budget, we'll see.
  6. Hey everyone, I have a friend interested in a ~$1000 Canadian build including tax (13% HST) and a monitor, and this is the final parts list I came up with. Any feedback/advice would be awesome!

    Best phones under $350?

    Sid, assuming you do live in Canada, After shipping, currency conversion, taxes etc Nexus 5 comes into around $420 in Canada. (16GB, Black Shipped). It's a great phone, but I would advise waiting 2 months for the new Nexus.

    Great 256GB SSD Recommendations?

    That would be not be very reliable. There is a reason its called Raid 0- zero reliability. Thanks everyone, looks the the Crucial MX100 is the way to go.

    Great 256GB SSD Recommendations?

    My mistake, I meant something with the value and still great speed of the evo.
  14. Hey guys, I'm in the market of upgrading my old Samsung 830 128GB SSD with Win 7 and plan to migrate to a 250-256GB SSD, with Win 8.1 thrown on. Looking for an SSD on the faster end of the spectrum, but still a great value. (like a cross between the Samsung 840 Evo and the 840 Pro) (evo for value and speed, pro for reliability) Any suggestions?

    Just ordered my Oneplus one!

    Hopefully you don't have it shipped to Canada, an extra $100 in taxes almost.
