  1. energy-report.html here is the report generated from following the guide you linked, it shows something about a driver not allowing the computer to automatically enter sleep but just shows weird symbols and doesn't say which driver, it is the 5th error on the list, then below that error there is one that talks about the Bluetooth (which is part of the wifi card the laptop came with) but it's talking about the bluetooth like it's a USB device, I would also note I just got a new cell phone last week and the weekend was the first time I attempted to pair it over BT to the laptop and it had issues
  2. I have an HP Spectre x360 15t Late 2017 model laptop, have owned it since late November 2017, I move around a lot so I use Sleep mode a lot, like 3-4 times a day so I don't have to close my web browser and it's 300+ tabs (I know I have a problem, it's easier then bookmarking, LOL). Anyway this past weekend I went and hit the power button to put the computer to sleep, then as I went to bag it up to take with me I noticed the power light came back on, the computer had RESTARTED (not gone to sleep), I try doing the Shutdown and same thing the computer restarts after about 5-10 seconds
  3. they don't have the Unify, I am aware of that one though, I'm not part of the Anti-RGB crowd, I like having lighting in the case, I don't do the rainbow puke (FYI I can't control the RGB of the RAM on this pre-AURA Z170 board in the picture above) here is the boards my Microcenter has https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966996+4294818900+4294810816&NTX=&NR=&filterProperty=&NTT=&NTK=all&page=1&sortby=pricehigh&SortNow=Go If it doesn't set the store choose the Marietta, GA store and remember I get an additional $30 off the prices list
  4. buying from Microcenter because with the discount on Mobo's there it comes out cheaper then online.
  5. No DIRECT airflow, case is a Corsair 570X (see picture) with a 360 rad in the front pulling air in using the stock RGB fans and a 240 rad with the EK Vardar fans in the top exhausting out and an exhaust on the rear, but fan speeds are tuned to be relatively reasonable noise levels as the system is in the living room. Between the Res and the fan speed there is very little airflow coming through the front. Spending more for something that is measurably better is fine, I don't mind doing that, I just don't want to be spending stupid money like the Aurous Extreme at $700, the video above from Der8
  6. rig is ALREADY watercooled and has been for some time, also AMD suggest Watercooling for 3950X anyway. this is a Mobo and CPU swap on an existing rig.
  7. good VRM and ATX form factor are the only real requirements, something that has Bluetooth built in would be a bonus so I can use the bluetooth keyboard I have for my Shield TV for when I'm on the couch and want to navigate to a movie.
  8. So I'm going to Microcenter to pickup the 3950X, I reserved on launch day, in the morning, I want to pickup an X570 Mobo while i'm there but I want one with a really good VRM that can handle being under heavy load for months on end without any direct airflow over the VRM, the 3950X will be under a waterblock and I'm going to use this machine to encode my DVD/Bluray Library (which is several HUNDRED discs deep) into x265 so I can digitize my entire library, because of this the machine will be under heavy load 24/7, so i'm looking for a really good VRM but I also don't want to buy some $700 Mobo
  9. and what about the other stick in A1? what we are trying to establish is whether a stick is bad or a slot is bad or if something else entirely is going on, so the first step is you start with a stock BIOS (no XMP or anything like that) and see is Stick A boots in slot A1, if it does shut down and remove Stick A and Replace it with Stick B and see if it boots with Stick B in the A1 slot, if both boot fine that way then the issue is not the ram sticks and that makes us look at a likely defective motherboard, it Stick B doesn't boot then we have a bad RAM stick, it's rare, i've seen 1
  10. you can try manually forcing the upgrade this was updated a month ago saying the method described still works https://www.howtogeek.com/266072/you-can-still-get-windows-10-for-free-with-a-windows-7-8-or-8.1-key/ I will be testing this myself on my sisters old laptop so that I can swap it to an SSD.
  11. VRAM usage has to do more with the level of detail you load, the higher you crank the settings in the game the more VRAM it needs, like say you increase the texture details or the scene render distance, basically the more stuff it needs to load to play the game the more VRAM it uses. Low VRAM usage doesn't indicate there is any kind of issue like you are describing. What you can try instead of doing the DDU then installing the latest drivers, do the DDU then install the old drivers you had from before last week, nearly every build of Nvidia Drivers is readily available
  12. well from what we can see, it supports a full ATX mobo and has tempered glass and a top mount PSU so we can rule out any of the O11 variants as the PSU mounts in the rear half of that unit, a top mount PSU is also pretty rare in a tempered glass case, using those restrictions I went to newegg and started sorting, I believe THIS is the card you are looking for https://www.newegg.com/black-rosewill-prism-s500-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811147283
  13. why not spend a touch more on the PSU selection and get a PSU that has 2 8 Pin CPU Power connections, I know the RM850x does and I think the v2 RM750x does, most higher tier PSU's should and a PSU isn't where you want to cheap out in a build, odds are that PSU is gonna outlast the rest of the machine.
  14. but this is the thread for the video so it's the place to put it, YOU are the one that feels the need to interject your opinion into it and you are now joining my ignore list.
  15. just because it doesn't distract you doesn't mean it doesn't distract others. and besides buddy I was addressing LMG via the forum here, this was not meant to be something for everyone with an opinion to sound off on, just because you don't care doesn't give you the right to bully other people for saying something. This isn't a one time thing, this has been going on for weeks and I've been forced to stop watching the videos because of it.
