  1. Sometimes using multiple sticks together from diffrent kits wont work even if they are the exact same model. Be wary of that when buying anything extra, sometimes it's better to just buy the full kit in one go.
  2. It just wouldn't boot at all. Either that or it would boot cycle loop I cant remember it was a long time ago. I was hoping there would be a better way to trouble shoot it or an easy fix. I will probably have to buy a cheap ram kit that has all 4 sticks to test a full kit mine were 2 sets of the same dual kit a year appart. I sold the other set. and check my cpu for bent pins. It sucks that I cant sell my cpu or motherboard hmm I guess I could also buy a cheap z97x mobo just to test the cpu that would be a hassle tho.
  3. Motherboard: Gigabyte ga z97x-sli lga 1150 Ram: g.skill ripjaws x series 16 gb (2x8) ddr3 1866 Processor: Intell Core i7 4790k I might want to sell my old computer in the future, but I have an issue with the ram where i might not beable to sell all of the machine. The ram only works in the 1 and 2 slot positions instead of 1 and 3 like normal modern pc's. I don't know how dual channel or single channel ram works I've tried all other combinations and even tried putting 4 of the same modules in. I was wondering if that's a thing with the type of motherboard I have, is it a setting I need to configure, or is something wrong with the ram slots or bent cpu pins?
  4. i was going to do one of two options reset the pc from a recovery partition off the drive, or put in my windows disc and click erase and install windows, and skip the part where it says to put in a product key. ( you don't need the software from Microsoft with one of those methods.) i would like someone with deeper knowledge of how this stuff works to reply to me i have already seen the video you are talking about.
  5. I got a laptop that was donated to the church that they couldn't use, so they gave it to me. It's an Asus Republic of Gaming Model GL753VD-DS71 I tried to get access to the main account by stupidly downloading one of those programs that gets you access to a password protected windows computer on to my usb stick. I dropped that method of getting access to it. I managed to get access to the computer by using a copy of windows 10 home 64 bit disc I had from my main machine, and using the command line. I was able to create a new admin account and change the password of the main account and get in However, shortly after the main account got corrupted. I'm assuming it did from the program I downloaded on my usb stick that I used previously, or windows is mad at me from not logging in using the previous persons windows password. You can sign into the account,but it just shows a black screen and explorer.exe will not start up. All you can do is use task manager, and after a couple uses of that it will freeze up too. I have pretty much given up on fixing the corrupted main admin account unless I can get more information on how to fix it here. Since I don't have Windows Professional I don't have as many options fixing it. I want to do a fresh format and install of the machine, but i don't have a windows cd key for it, and i don't know the previous persons password for their microsoft account. Can i still do a clean install and have the machine grab the key off the motherboard, or do i have to buy a new copy of windows to use the machine properly now and windows be properly activated?

  6. I heard that here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3097868/1080p-144hz-1440p-monitor-gtx-1070.html Right now on some games I'm getting 50fps at max ingame settings. Lately I have been playing vrchat, but that game is more of a social game and is in early access and is not built well. I like to play conan exiles, minecraft, skyrim, subnautica, and csgo to name a few. Conan seems to have allot of screen blur when moving around but that might be because it's also in early access or just out of beta. Or my ips pannel.
  7. I read that the 1070 only does 1440p 60hz or 1080p 144hz It would be refreshing to buy the monitor I want and not worry about anything else if that's the case. I'll check out your suggestion though.
  8. Cpu is not overclocked it's a stock intell cooler that came with the cpu I am willing to over click it though if the performance will be worth it.
  9. Hello I posted a link to my current pc below. I made this computer in early 2016 when I was just getting into pc building with not much knowledge. I could have better prepared for the future. I would like to know what I can currently do to get good performance and also have a good viewing experience when playing games, aswell as the future to come. Streaming might be pushing it especially now that I also have a htc vive. I discovered that my 4th gen i7 might not be giving my 1070 graphics card enough performance to make it run to it's full potential let me know if this is true https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tayster/saved/Tngccf For the future or even right now I would love to game on a good quality 1440p 144hz refresh rate screen whether that be IPS VA or TN panel. I would like to use the Asus Rog Swift PG279Q 27 I'm not worried about 4k right now. But it seems I need to basically get a new pc for that, that will cost $2000 not including a new monitor, if I get one. I can save up for that but it is allot of money for me realistically for awhile. $1300 would be an acceptable price for a new build. I live in Oregon, United States of America. Here are 4 ideas I came up with. I want quality and good looks, but maybe to save money as well, so getting good savings/down grading help would be good. RGB Build https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tayster/saved/jMccYJ Quality Build https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tayster/saved/M8JV6h Savings build 1 https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tayster/saved/x9ccYJ Savings build 2 https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Tayster/saved/BswV6h This is also a time where new products are comming out so it might also be a good idea to wait longer aswell. In summary should I do small upgrades with what I have, do a small pc jump inbetween ehat I have and current gen, upgrade to current gen, or wait for new stuff? If I do upgrade to new stuff what is the best to think about for keeping computer for gaming and streaming for the future.
