    The channels you are missing are both VHF-High which is notoriously difficult with contemporary indoor antennas. UHF under 30 is similarly difficult. Your antenna is an "amplified" unit which is something of a consumer scam. When the amplification mode is on it tends to introduce noise, or the impression of a lost signal with DTV. In other words, you don't have to fool around with the antenna you have. Return it.
     
    There are very few good amplified antennas intended to be used indoors. In New York, a sea of steel construction and RF interference, hesitate to use such a unit unless you are pretty far out in the suburbs.
     
    New York is THE priority market. Signals tend to be strong and clear unless you are among the many, many obstructions in Manhattan and Brooklyn or a particularly low part of Queens. Most important is your proximity to One World Trade Center and the Empire State Bldg from which the mentioned channels broadcast. Reception through a building can be a complicating factor if you are in an apartment on the wrong side for maximum reception.
     
    Also, seconding Tyler the Antenna Man. He knows his stuff and stays on top of it.
     
    Assuming you are within 20 miles of the broadcast towers, you may choose among the following for good results.
     
    Mohu Leaf or Arc. The Leaf is the one all the other flat antennas are copying. Arc is not designed to fit in a window.
    Antennas Direct ClearStream Eclipse
    Channel Master Flatenna 35. CM being the old, tried and true brand in this category.
     
    If you are further out or just want the maximum indoor unit, devise some kind of stand or support and stick an Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V in the window and be done with it.

    The best thing is to look at where the channels are broadcasting from. For example all my channels come from the North East. So my antenna is located in my bed room on the second floor on the north side of the house. Currently I have 54 channels. If I had to guess the antenna is probably 20 is feet above ground, which helps. 
     
    One thing to keep in mind. Indoor antenna sucks. They can work if you're close to the transmitters but generally an outdoor unit will do worlds better. I myself am using an indoor antenna, however, I found a great position on the wall where I can get everything. Thats the key thing, you need to find the best position. My antenna is literally velcro to the wall. It also have a powered amp. 
     
    If you want to learn more I suggest checking out Tyler the Antenna man on Youtube. He does Antenna installs for a living and has reviews on many antennas.

    The implications this could have might be interesting.
    I wonder if these people can compile the code though.

    Fractal because of the way it looks and then buy 2 more fans for the front, for that sweet fresh air.
     
    But if you can't spend more than $89 go with Cooler Master, 3 pre-installed front fans already.

    And do you know for certain PC Part Picker didn't work out some kind of contract with the shops they link to? I'd contact these shops just to be on the safe side. Or better yet, talk to a local lawyer. Random people on the internet can't really be trusted for legal advise, especially on local law of a foreign country.

    Did you press the memory down hard enough to feel the clips on both ends snapping into the memory stick? The amount of force needed could be absurdly high for a new builder but that's how it is.
