  1. There is no such option as fast boot on this MOBO. Found the solution - the CMOS battery itself was causing the trouble. Changed it to a new one, problem disappeared.
  2. Checked it with another PSU, same result. So no idea how to fix this?
  3. Seasonic 500W - the worst case scenario, 100% load of this system (all USB ports occupied, both CPU and GPU usage at 100%, all other deviced in use) is 444W.
  4. OS doesn't matter, the issue occurs even without the drive plugged in.
  5. Hi everyone, I decided to breathe a new life into my friend's old PC: Asus P5N-E SLI mobo, 6GB DDR2 memory and some old Core 2 Duo. We switched the CPU to QX6850 (the highest CPU supported by this MOBO), put a GTX 950 in it and updated the BIOS. Yes, the PSU is handling all of that really well. Before any hardware swaps the system didn't post after a reboot - it didn't matter if we did change anything in the BIOS or not. The same issue remains after the hardware swap. Like I mentioned before, the BIOS has been updated, the CMOS has been cleared, the CPU and memory sticks has been reseated. I used a special software from a bootable USB to do a system check and it came back all green. The system boots normally after a cold restart, but if I go into BIOS, reboot the system or just go into the OS and reboot it, the whole PC just hangs - black screen, no response, no beep indicationg that the post was successful - nothing. If I turn it off and turn back on, it boots like nothing bad happened. What can be the cause of this and how can I fix it?
  6. Hi, I'm gathering some, let's call it, supplies to start my YT channel about cheap PC builds and solutions and I ended up with many CPUs I need to store properly. Does anyone know a proper way to store CPUs if one does not have their respective boxes anymore? I saw something like this on Game Nexus channel by pure accident at the beginning of this video:
  7. Hi, I'm having a little issue with my HTPC. I built it a while ago and installed W10 Pro on it and I'm using it both as an HTPC and a media server for my gaming rig. PC itself is fine, really quiet, etc., but the issue is that it restarts on it's own every so often. I need it to be 100% up, otherwise I won't be able to access my files when I really need them - it wouldn't be much of an issue if I didn't encrypt my disks with Bitlocker for safety. I live with couple room mates, so safety of my files is really important to me. Any suggestions on what can I do about it? And before you mention Linux - as much as I like this system, I'm not skilled enough to use it as my daily driver.
  8. Hi, I've build a small form factor PC to act as a HTPC/server for all my media I don't want to have on my gaming rig and it has Windows 10 Pro installed, since it's the only OS license I've got - and no, I don't want a Linux machine, I require it to be in my home network with all it's drives shared within it and I do not know how to navigate in Linux freely enough to set up my server in such an OS. All of my drives, including the OS one, are encrypted by using BitLocker, so if I turn the PC completely off or even just put it into sleep/hibernate, I will not fully boot up until I put in the password - and that's the way I want it, since I have room mates. The issue with the system being that almost every time it downloads an update, it restarts the PC, even with my settings to either notify me about it or at least give me some sort of a warning. Because of that, I sometimes cannot connect to the shared drives, because the PC is asking for BitLocker password and I just didn't notice that it even reset because I wasn't using it for a moment. Is there a way to turn those automated restarts completely off?
  9. Cause I own the smallest version of GBT GTX 950, because it's a terrible overclocker it's loud under load. The GTX 770 I am offered on the other hand is really quiet under load (even though it's a 3x Windforce), will give me better performance (I know it won't be a huge difference, but still) and 770 will look better in my case:
  10. I don't mind it - I just have an opportunity to swap those, and even slightest improvement is a win for me. The system I'm currently using won't be upgraded at all - I may put a bigger SSD in it, but that'll be all.
  11. 1st of all, I love your signature, it's hilarious second of all, I'm glad that it'll work - like I said, I want it to work for at least a month until I get a new PSU. That one you mentioned itsn't that expensive, so I light go with that.
  12. Hi, so I have an opportunity to swap my Gigabyte's GTX 950 OC to Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB 3x Windforce OC and the potential issue being my PSU - Corsair VS550. I know that this GPU requires 600W PSU, but I was wondering if this PSU will suffice for the time being, if I won't OC the card until I change the PSU. What are your thoughts?

  14. Will do! Well, my problem solved itself. On the polish equivalent to craigslist, someone was selling "potentially broken PS3 Super Slim" - guy said that he didn't have time and means to check if it's working or not, so he's been selling it for 70 PLN (that's roughly $17). No gamepad, but that's not an issue. So I bought it - turns out, that the only thing this console was missing was a drive and a drive cage, which has been already bought. The device itself works perfectly. Now that's what I'm calling a score
