    Keyboard USB lagging bios

    After some further digging, I have found it's quite a common problem with the Corsair K70 RGB and Asus motherboards. Seems here are a few others with the same issue from years ago: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=133976 Yet the issue was not resolved. It appears it's the keyboard itself. Tried it in a different PC, and the problem happened on the other PC. When tried another keyboard in the first PC, it booted fine.

    Keyboard USB lagging bios

    Yes, everything is secure and correct. Checked it multiple times.

    Keyboard USB lagging bios

    It's on a fresh install of W10 now with a new SSD, all drivers have been installed fresh to the latest available. I have updated BIOS to the latest version for the Maximus VI Hero.
  4. Ignore my idiocy, I forgot how to go back from that tab for a while. However, we have an odd problem here. Whenever I unplug a specific 1 of 2 keyboard USB's from the computer, it boots fine, and bios doesn't lag. However, when I plug it back in, boot up takes 2-3 minutes, and bios lags like crazy. Any ideas?
  5. Yeah don't worry, I plan on sitting down with him as I build it showing him how to build it, maybe let him do it himself, then give him the full birds and the bees talk about building/interacting on computers. EDIT: Oh and it wont be anything fancy with lights and a window for his first build, maybe he'll upgrade it over christmas' and birthdays to add them stuff later.
  6. He has literally no income, as he's under 16, so even though he does want to play the occasional game on PC, he can't do it himself.
  7. Well he needs a PC for his school work also, that's why I'm just getting him one that works for now, but even he could tell the difference with GTA V on PS4 and on PC, even though I only had a 660 in my PC at the time, he said it felt much smoother, which is a good one to notice.
  8. Oh wow. That is quite.... Special.
  9. That looks like a great combo! Thanks!
  10. I never said he was against it, I bought him about 3 games over christmas which he is loving, but he hasn't got a PC of his own, he really enjoys his PS4, but I think he will also enjoy PC, seeing how he wants to be on my other brothers PC as much as possible proves that he's not against it at all, and it's taking me next to no effort.
  11. Hello everyone, I am in need of some help. I'm slowly trying to convert my brother from console gaming to PC, by helping him get his first PC. I've got some old components laying around at the moment, but the motherboard and CPU are lacking. I plan on helping him get a new motherboard and CPU sometime this year as an upgrade, I don't particularly fancy going all out on Skylake etc, looking more around the £200 mark for both, any suggestions? I've got my old Asus DirectCUII GTX 660 OC edition sitting here which I'll be putting in with it as well. Thanks in advance!

    Nintendo attacking speedrunners

    I just don't buy anything nintendo, then again I've never liked any Nintendo game ever.
  14. Thank you very much kind sir! I think I'd be looking more at the Asus then due to the more features since a few extra ports really doesn't matter.
  15. My theme is red and black with small specs of silver, so it's not like the Hero would be totally out of place but it will look rather strange, I have an NZXT h440 red/black with NZXT red LED cable in there but my GTX 660 which I have currently has silver heatpipes, and I have an Intel SSD in the SSD bay which is also silver. I would preferably like to keep it between Asus and MSI don't really want to be more confused on what to choose.
