    Some minor updates after the wife advised I theme the build.

    According to your profile, you're driving an ASUS PB278Q 27" with 970's in SLI. You haven't listed the Windows 10 installer but let's assume it's the latest, 1909 build.
    I had a similar ASUS display that recently died on me. I think the GSync module inside is finicky. Add to that An SLI config.
     
    I'd recommend pulling one of your cards for the install, or first, trying a different display just for the installation procedure.
     
    Also worth mentioning, I had a PG278Q paired with my 4th gen EVGA classified and it refused to display the BIOS. It had poor support for UEFI. Back then I was running 980s in SLI, so it's safe to say I'm familiar with your troubles.

    No, it's not safe to run older versions of Windows if you're going to put the computer on a network. Clicking a link isn't your only risk vector. Vulnerabilities inherent in older libraries can be exploited simply by visiting a compromised website, or by querying a DNS server, and Microsoft decided to package feature updates with security updates, ensuring your best bet is either to stick with Windows 10 and update regularly to maintain your security posture, or switch to a platform that doesn't work this way. This is the way.

    I own a few of these drives and I just took a look at the label on two of them. My larger capactiy Samsung EVO was made in Korea. My small capacity EVO was made in China. Both of these drives are several years old.
     
    The performance difference is not dependent on the country of origin, but on the chip manufacturing process. SLC, MLC, TLC, etc. If you're worried about the performance of an SSD, run Crystal Mark and check it against known metrics for your drive.

    You're in luck.
    A DTX measures 200x244mm
    I shoehorned a MicroATX in, which is 244x244mm.
     
    That proves a DTX board would fit. Here's the photo:

    I had an SSD mounted to the floor before, actually, which is why you see a dangling SATA connector, but I've been switching out SSDs for various projects so now I let it dangle. The board will overhang the mount hole by about 1CM so the thickness of the drive might make the difference, but since most of my SSDs are encased in plastic, I don't worry about them contacting the leads on the back of the board. I would NOT mount an HDD in that location.

    If you're going to upgrade anyway, have you considered overclocking that K? I'm still running that chip OC'd and it does great work.
     
    Don't forget, 4th Gen Intel uses DDR3, so if you go to Ryzen, you'll need DDR4 as well. If you're using aftermarket cooling, it will also likely require ordering an adapter kit for Ryzen, or it may simply not work.

    Pretending that everyone doesn't have access to the same reference material. The proof is in the pudding. Sometimes I think people don't realize their posts are on the internet forever.

    If this truly became an issue for Iceland, they would mandate maximum power draws or caps for each house. They're socialist, after all.

    That has got to be a scam. Call the number listed on the letter, or transcribe the letter here (and don't put your personal information). I'll call them. I'd almost guarantee the number is Skype and it goes out of country.

    Tiberiusisgame reacted to KarathKasun in SLI or upgrade GPU   
    Reasons not to go SLI...
     
    Inconsistent performance in new games
    Waiting months for SLI patches
    Never getting SLI patches in many new games
     
    SLI is only really a decent solution once you get to the point that there is no higher tier GPU and you still need more GPU power.  SLI low-mid range makes zero sense with all of the headaches that come with it.
