    solosdk reacted to CesarsWrath in ASUS X470-F No Display/DRAM issue.   
    OK awesome and thank you for the recommendation, 3000Mhz is still near the sweet spot I'm after and a good price. Also they are on the QVL list, I was also looking at these: G.SKILL F4-2400C15D-16GTZR Trident Z RGB Series 16 GB (8 GB x 2) DDR4 2400 MHz PC4-19200 CL15 Dual Channel Memory Kit - Black with full length RGB LED light bar https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MU9NESL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_kwcRBb535YDK2
     
    Downfall is that I have to sell my current sticks in order to afford this right now, or atleast wait another 2 to 3 weeks before I can buy them.
     
    Talking of which if anyones is interested I do already have my new patriot sticks on ebay.

    solosdk got a reaction from Coffeeman in Best way to configure: 1x SSD and 1x HDD - using the Asus Z77 Bios   
    Hi,
     
    To answer your question, RAID has got nothing to do with what you want to do!
     
    I would follow these steps in order to maximise the full potential of your PC as well as operate in the way you want it.
     
    Installing Windows 7/8 on the SSD
     
    1. Go to your BIOS. Navigate to the SATA configuration page (check motherboard manual). Set your SSD to AHCI mode. This is important! Leave the hard drive DISCONNECTED before installing Windows on the SSD so the computer won't get confused and to avoid lots of problems that could occur in the future.
     
    2. Set the SSD as the first boot priority. Install Windows as you would.
     
    3. Install all of your programs and such and just set the PC the way you want it.
     
    Installing the secondary Hard Drive
     
    1. Open up the PC, and install the Hard Drive. 
     
    2. In the BIOS, make sure the hard drive is left the way it is, and make sure the BIOS didn't set the HDD as first boot priority by accident.
     
    3. Load Windows from your SSD (just turn it on like normal)
     
    4. Now in Start > Computer you will see your HARD DRIVE in the window. Open it like you would do like a flash drive and store your data on it.
     
     
    Simples.
     
    Hope I helped

    solosdk got a reaction from Johnny K. in Apple's new A8X processor dominates the benchmarks   
    Apples new A8X processor has been found to have been geekbenched, showing a triple-core processor (for the first time since 2011 from dual-core) clocked at 1.5Ghz and contains 2GB of RAM
    The benchmark shows that the A8X single-handedly beats the new iPhone 6's in single-core and multi-core processing.
    Google has recently announced their new Nexus 9 with Tegra K1, which has also been benchmarked.
    See the results for yourselves:


    and now a Nexus 9 comparison

    As you can see, the A8X is one multi-core monster indeed.
    Now awaiting GPU benchmarks which I suspect will, again, annihilate any other mobile SoC.

    Lol. When an android phone can go 3 months without needing to be formatted due to lag and other issues, I'll think about going back to android. Until then, I'll stick to what's stable and works without rebooting every day.

    If I had my way I'd ban every single child who has no idea what they're talking about, but then I'd have to explain to Linus and co. why 90% of the forum is gone.
     
    You all act like Apple tried to bang your mothers or something. 
     
    This man is moving on up in his career, he took an offer from apple to advance his career, he doesn't owe you people anything nor does he have to explain why he wants to move on. 
     
    Why can't this forum talk about Apple and its products? Its LinusTechTips. Not LinusWindowsTips. Not LinusFuckEverythingAppleTips. You children have no shame at all, I'm saddened to think that any of you actually think the way you do. 
     
    Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. 
     
    You call yourselves enthusiasts, yet most of you lack the mental capacities to have meaningful conversations and instead resort to "FUCK OFF APPLE FANS YOU DONT BELONG HERE"

    Here is a suggestion, why don't all of YOU sod off, and leave the rest of us to have decent conversations? Why bring Apple hate into this thread at all, huh? What was the point? Enlighten me. Did you all need to stroke your egos and make your lives have some meaning from the 15 seconds of fame by crapping on Apple for the hundredth thread in a row?

    funny how some people just blindly hate apple, no matter what and how you wanna explain your point
    i've owned the first iPhone and i liked it a lot, it was something new and i still find their design pleasing to my eyes, tho that started to decline, at least for my taste, since Jobs died
    but won't deny it, it's way overpriced
    and that's the reason i don't own any apple product atm, except playing around a bit with my brothers iPad, which is enjoyable, as well as their app store, much nicer than google play store

    For real though, hopefully it comes with an announcement about DX12, that shit needs to get here now.

    How is $199 expensive? You've basically got a phone but without the GSM/LTE radio. It's pretty good. It's light, it has EarPods and has the wrist band etc. with it. It's great for the money.
