  1. I just built a new PC and it's super fast compared to my old PC. However, I've been experiencing restarts and BSOD with the stop code "WHEA uncorrectable error". After I built the PC I started benchmarking. Puget, Unigen Heaven, 3D Mark TimeSpy, and Cinebench R15 and R20 passed with flying colors. Then I went to AIDA64 to stress test and the PC restarted within 1 minute or less. I tried a few times with the same result. Then I tried doing a 15-minute run of Cinebench R20 the PC would always crash before it'd reach 2-minutes in. I also get random BSOD crashes even when I'm idle or u
  2. Found out how to tame the RGB party mode. Taming the jungle hiding behind the side panel tomorrow with some Cablemod cables
  3. Finished! The tubing is sloppy and needs to be redone but it's running.
  4. CPU and monoblock installed. That probably should've taken 20 minutes instead of two hours but I really didn't want to screw up that part.
  5. Another is being sent out and is supposed to arrive in 3 days. I think there must be a thief in the Amazon shipping department. That seems more likely than somebody buying and returning it with the CPU removed and the empty packaging getting resold. Somebody must inspect returns on items of this price. I highly doubt a CPU ever comes from the AMD factory like this which Amazon seemed to suggest when they asked if I wanted to sort it out with AMD directly. Thankfully the replacement is getting delivered soon. I'd be very upset if I had to deal with starting a claim and waiting for d
  6. Not off to the greatest start. Just got my CPU in the mail, opened the box, and there was a 3970x box with two broken seals and no CPU inside.
  7. My parts list is set. Now it's just a matter of executing the build.
  8. Planning my first PC build with a custom loop. My current 10-core 6950x overclocked to 4.3GHz isn't cutting it anymore and I keep finding myself under 100% load while I'm working so it's time for an upgrade. Below is my parts wishlist. I can't find a Strix 3090 so I'm probably going to be stuck with a 2080 Ti for now until those become available. We will see if a steady stock of 3090's becomes available soon but I'm not getting my hopes up. Wish me luck! I'll be updating my progress here as I go. I might need tips along the way. As of right now, I don't even know what h
  9. Thank you so much. I never would've figured that out on my own. I've heard about AHK but it looked intimidating and I never dove into it. Your provided script really helps with the learning curve I assume it would work with F keys as well? e.g. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F1. I've got just about every letter of the alphabet assigned to macros so I'm limited to obscure keys now that aren't A through Z.
  10. I'm a macro junkie like Taran and the Elgato Stream Deck has become a time-saving genie in a bottle for me as a creative professional. In addition to all my editing macros, launching my Gmail, Dropbox, Wetransfer, Google Drive, and Chrome in general has been a huge time saver for me. I open those following sites hundreds of times a day while I'm working and the seconds it saves each time really adds up. My (first world) problem is that when I launch one of those sites from the Stream Deck, the Chrome window launches in the background under other applications. This means I have to A
  11. Not currently. When the 1080's become readily available I'm ditching my 980ti and going 1080SLI. When I add a second card I'll still have a PCI-E slot left on my board for my FireWire card. The problem is my case (Phanteks Enthoo Evolv mATX) only has 4 expansions slots and they will be taken up by the 1080's. The ideal motherboard for my situation would be an x99 mATX board with Thunderbolt 3. With the Thunderbolt 3 support I would be able to (in theory) use a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter (if said adapter exists) and eliminate the need for a FireWire add-in card and I'd be able
  12. Multiple M.2 slots would be great on an x99 board too. I have my OS on my M.2 and it's blazing fast. Just wish I had a second slot to add in another card as a scratch drive.
  13. The Asus is a little nicer on the eyes. The Asus has an onboard USB-C port and comes with an Add-On Thunderbolt 3 card. I wonder if this means that even though you can plug a Thunderbolt 3 device into the onboard USB-C (as it's being advertised on the Asus page) that you're limited to 10Gbps and the only the port in the Add-On card will give you 40Gbps, or if they both support 40Gbps. The Add-On card for the Asus looks like it has a Thunderbolt 2 port (and what looks to be a usb 3.0) on it also but that could just be a MDP. The Gigabyte on the other hand is easier on the wallet but
