  1. I just switched from my Galaxy S7 to a OnePlus 5T. And to address your biggest concern, no, none of my SMS messages transferred over to my new phone. I set up my phone by using Tap and Go, which was introduced back in Lollipop. When I setup my new phone, pretty much everything transferred over. Photos were previously backed up by Google Photos (however, they are not stored locally on my device), for music, I already have a subscription to Play Music, so music could redownload quite quickly. Apps were all downloaded and reinstalled as soon as I first booted up my phone. Contacts were already backed up to the cloud, so I didn't lose anyone's phone number. Pretty much the only thing that I didn't get back on my new phone were my old SMS messages, and I had to relogin to all of my apps, but not a big deal. The Pixels include a USB OTG adapter and special software that lets you move over EVERYTHING including SMS messages. Android phones are a hell of a lot different than the Note 2 and G3 that you were used to, they're all really nice now, with great hardware and software. (Although I wouldn't buy an S8 for the software though...)
  2. I think there's a serious disconnect between an SoC's raw performance versus the Real World User Experience of a phone. OK, the raw performance of the phone under benchmarks didn't change, and that's still good, but benchmarks are not the way to measure a phone's smoothness (or how much it stutters). I wish the researcher would have contacted one of the writers at XDA-Developers to learn more about real world UX and tools to investigate how smooth a phone really is, such as GPU Profiling
  3. I think "BOTH." is a very valid answer. To be honest, Broadwell was just for mobile CPUs, and there were very few desktop CPUs on that platform. In my mind, it was practically just a skip in generation. They could have just done that again, and not waste time and resources on a KABY LAKE REFRESH. Instead, just delay Coffee Lake a little bit so we can get that 6-core goodness
  4. This is exactly why I'm confused about X299 replacing Z270.
  5. So I've heard about Intel's insane Skylake-X lineup, from the Core i7-7800X all the way up to the Core i9-7980XE behemoth and their X299 platform. Another thing that I found interesting are the i7-7700K and i5-7600K refreshes, the Kaby Lake-X i7-7740X and the i5-7640X running on the same X299 platform. If the Kaby Lake-X refreshes are supposed to replace the 7700K and 7600K, (you know, to move everyone over to X299 (with a slightly more expensive motherboard) for the future upgrade paths) what does this mean for Z270? Does Intel expect everyone to hop over to the X299 no matter what? Is Z270 going to hit the bucket or will it be meant as some weird chipset alternative that's only a few hundred cheaper than the flagship that will have an excellent upgrade path?
  6. I googled when Infinite Warfare was released. Nov 4, 2016. It's only been 7 months. Goddamn that game flopped.
  7. Hey, you wanna watch U.S. Politics with me?
  8. Oh no, I have a spare 1 TB hard drive in storage. I'll be using that to store everything. I just wanted a boot SSD.
  9. I'd prefer a MicroATX computer, as I have a firm suspicion that I will be lugging this computer around with me to college.
  10. Unless I can update the BIOS without another LGA 1151 CPU, that is a problem. I don't want to get a skylake CPU just to update the BIOS. If I can download that BIOS update from my dying X51 and stick it on a USB stick, that's fine. I just need a guide for that, as I've never flashed a new BIOS before. Do you have a specific card in mind, I don't want to spend much more than 600 dollars.

I'm really looking forward to Ryzen, but Ryzen 5 doesn't come out until in another 2 weeks. Also I can't find any cheap B350 boards below 80 bucks. And if I'm going AMD, I demand a B350 board, because free overclocking (Even on the stock cooler). You guys can help me decide which team I go with this time. I'd like to spend around 600 dollars US. I'll be using this computer for web browsing as well as serious gaming at 1080p with one monitor for gaming. I have no plans for 1440p, and since I'll be a college student soon, VR is out of the question. Besides, I can just stick a 1060 in there if I really want VR for some reason. Don't worry about peripherals, I have a KB, mouse, and two monitors that I can reuse. Windows 10 is 20 dollars because I plan to buy a key off Kinguin or G2A or something like that. I need this computer because my X51 is currently going on the fritz. It's hard crashing after an hour or so of gaming. Windows itself is claiming that it's a hard power loss. I've already started a thread on the forum. If you have any solutions, please see the thread linked.
  12. So I dusted my PC out yesterday. And it's still crashing, especially on Rainbow 6. Funnily enough, I expected it to crash while playing comp CSGO, but it didn't. I'm going to call Alienware support tomorrow and see what they can do for me. Do you think it's the power supply? Do you have any further advice for what I can do?
  13. I'm actually surprised that Apple responded.
  14. Not quite. When I get a chance, I'm going to open up my computer and make sure this shit isn't happening because of dust or anything like that.
  15. I said in my original post that it starts when I start a game. It's fucking here alright. 6 in the last hour, 7 in the last 24 hours, 11 in the past 7 days. Does event viewer tell me WHY it's shutting off beyond "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."?
  16. What do I do in here? What specifically should I look at?
  17. The thing is, the problem temporarily goes away overnight. Today when I got home from school, it worked just fine as I was internet browsing on it for a couple of hours. It was only until I started playing rainbow 6 for an hour or so that the problems show up.
  18. It is a sudden shut off, like yanking the cable, and then rushing to hit the power button. A faulty PSU is my second thought after it just needs to be dusted. However, if the PSU is going bad, that's a problem because it is a proprietary Dell PSU and the computer I have was discontinued a while ago, so I don't know if Dell will send me a new one, should they still have any or if my warranty is WAYY too long gone.
  19. I didn't have this problem before though. It started last night and I've never done anything to my motherboard nor my bios.
  20. My CPU's a locked 3770, so if you can OC this thing, I'd be impressed. Yeah the temps go with the "I haven't dusted my PC" thing, so I'm going to try rainbow 6 again and monitor temps this time
  21. Starting yesterday, my computer has been shutting off, and then restarting itself. The issue initially starts when I play a game. After an hour or so, my computer will shut off and immediately restart. Then it'll continue to loop, even as I try to stumble into the desktop. It'll loop a few times, about 3 today, and then crash if I try to restart a game. My monitor lights don't shut off as far as I'm aware, so I don't think it's a problem with my surge protector nor my house. I am currently doing a quick scan with MSE as I type this and nothing's popped up. I haven't dusted out my PC in a while, so I have a suspicion it could be that. Specs can be seen on my profile. Edit: Resumed Rainbow 6, had MSI Afterburner up, and looked at CPU usage and temps. It shut off, restarted about 5-6 times until desktop. I predict if I go back to a game, it'll do this again. Temps: Mid 60s ish, normal for my small PC and weak cooling. Usage: It crashed at about 50 ish percent while playing rainbow 6 Edit 2: It is now shutting off at the desktop after I punch in my passcode. Edit 3: I have dusted out my PC a couple of days ago. My computer still crashes during gaming. During my time inside my PC, I did not notice anything out of the ordinary.
  22. I think your profile picture's been influencing you a little too much
