    0x1e got a reaction from BlackManINC in Will my pc explode ?   
    I agree.
    Especially if the GPU asks for lets say 550 watts and the PSU tries to deliver that, while also delivering another 100 watts to the rest of the computer.

    You can't always expect safety systems to safe the day. They can fail and Corsair can reject the RMA because your GPU is out of spec.

    "if it doesn't work out, just replace it with a PSU with more wattage" sounds like terrible advice to me. Replacing components is no walk in the park, especially a power supply. Its a fuck ton of wires you gotta deal with, its aggravating and it takes time out of your day you could be spending on other things. I'd never take this advice seriously, but that's up to the O.P.

    Look pal, if the manufacturer recommends a wattage higher than the power supply you have or plan on getting, then its better to be safe and do what the manufacturer tells you to do and call it a day. They are recommending the wattage for a specific reason, and its not for basic activities like web surfing or Adobe Acrobat, or Microsoft Office. If you are planning on doing more than that, then just get a 550 Watt power supply, or even more than that to provide more cushion and to future proof it.

    Probably not likely while the memory controller supports up to 2667mhz.
    Start at this frequency and test stability. Then incrementally increase and test.

    Either you had a corrupted bios or you input an incorrect setting in bios.
    Pulling the battery will reset the motherboard to default settings.

    ERP is a power saving feature.
    When you have it activated it cuts all power to almost everything in the PC when it is off.
    Having it off means your PC still receives power when the computer is off.

    Using either setting is your choice. Do you want to save power? Then have ERP on.
    Do you want USB ports activated when your computer is off? Then have ERP off.

    Now does the double power cycle harm your computer?
    No. No it causes no harm. This is very typical on Asus motherboards, and can happen on others.
    8/10 it's optimising memory training. Nothing to worry about.

    I had this once.
    Unlikely this will solve for you, but check if you have something called "PPL overvoltage" within bios.
    If you do then disable it.
    I don't think AMD has it, but give it a check.

    It seems higly unlikely to me that CPU temperatures would affect memory temperatures so much they overheat. I am not saying it's impossible.
     
    Now this generally indicates a driver issue. I would invite you to find and share the crashdump (or analyse it yourself) to see if any indications are giving as to the driver(s) that may be causing this. Spoiler alert: Chances are it's not going to be able to tell you and call it unidentified. 
     
    You should give the driver identifier a shot and see what happens link.
     
    Also, be sure that nothing is overclocked because that might be causing some instabilities and your easiest fix instead of looking for it in wonky drivers. (I am not talking about pre-loaded XMP profiles, yes technically these are overclocks but shouldn't cause these issues. You could allways try this when nothing else helps).
     
    Also try a memtest
     
    See what these test come up with. 
    No personal experience here but this post indicates that these errors are likely caused by the same faulthy drivers.
     
     
    The gist of it: I think you have instability thanks to overclocking or some of your drivers are not working as they should.

    0x1e got a reaction from TheLordofEvel in BIOS isn't booting. Bios is updating. 10 hours later. Bios is updating   
    If it has been hours then it has failed.
    It should take less than 5 minutes to complete it from power on to finish.

    Does your motherboard have dual bios, or a way to update the bios without a cpu and ram?

    0x1e reacted to The_russian in I broke off the plastic protector and shielding from my USB 3.0 connection (on both mobo and case I/O cable) but still works. Fix it or no?   
    I would be a little hesitant to use either one. Once the cable is plugged in, it shouldn't need to be unplugged very often, so you don't need an insanely strong glue to hold everything together. The reason I would go with hot glue is because if you need to undo everything for some reason, it's a lot easier to take off hot glue than super glue.

    Like TrigrH said, as long as it works, it shouldn’t be a big deal. My suggestion would be to put some hot glue on the connector so it doesn’t come loose.

    For anyone who needs this in the future, the ASUS MOBO "optimization" was the problem... After I cleared the CMOS again, I started changing bios settings one by one, it was the culprit that handicapped my CPU, no clue why.

    Store definition: returned for reasons unrelated to functioning, re-tested 100%, cleaned, as good as new.
     
    Definition of what actually happens: returned due to intermittent malfunctioning, came back to store, turned on for 0.5seconds, "seems fine", slapped back onto shelves. Now second hand, still malfunctioning, but priced "as good as new".
     
    Dont feel bad, we all fall for it at least once (mine was with an android phone of which the mike wouldnt work 1 in 20 conversations).

    removed all your drives.
    If the bios can't find a drive to boot from them it should kick you into bios.
    I think you might have the boot up going too fast. There's an option within bios saying something like "wait 5 seconds to continue". What this option does is hold your boot screen for 5 seconds (where it either shows your gigabyte logo or hardware specs). Loads of people put this to 1 second without realising just how fast that is, faster than your USB can initialise. Put it at 3 seconds minimum.

    Relocation is done automatically, there's nothing else you can do.
    Once a drive starts dying then the drive is done. With each dead sector puts more strain on others which wears them out faster. Rinse and repeat.
    There is only a certain amount of spare space on a drive, once you've used that up you will begin to lose data. By the time you realised that you've lost data it's too late, halve of the data is corrupt with no way to recover it.
