I did not go out and find another cmos battery. There was no troubleshooting offered by ARrock or resistance on the RMA, so I didn't bother pursuing the battery. Thanks for the help! At least the second time around, the cooler installation should be much less nerve wracking....

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - HobbsTheTiger
I read 2.74 volts across those power on pins. Is this expected? Shorting the pins as in the picture gets nothing. http://www.asrock.com/support/faq.asp?id=334 This page suggests that I should get some indication from the LEDs if memory or CPU issues are found. Short of getting a second everyt...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - HobbsTheTiger
My psu still powers on when shorting those pins. A voltmeter showed the expected voltage. I'm inclined to say this is not the problem. It seems the motherboard is dead. There is an indicator on the board (dr debug) that I'd expect to indicate if the CPU has issues. Anything else I need to check...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - HobbsTheTiger
With guidance of the board and lots of research, I built a new system a month ago, and everything was great for the past month. I went away for Christmas for 1.5 weeks. Before leaving, I powered everything down , flipped off the psu and unplugged everything from the wall while I was gone. Came back ...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - HobbsTheTiger
I just built the almost the same system with a Nvidia 970 GPU. Some might suggest a slightly less CPU, or non-unlocked model and to go with the stock cooler? ILike recommended a slightly cheaper motherboard than I was originally planning. I stole a wireless card from another computer. Maybe y...

Build completed, working on the pictures. The scariest part was installing the CM EVO cooler and trying to decipher the instructions. Any up-to-date guides on what to do post-OS install? After 8.1 was finished, I ran the memory test and everything seemed fine. I downloaded and installed...

Thanks for the input. I'll go with the Extreme4 unless there is some other deal at Microcenter that is too good to pass up. I already had purchase the memory and power supply with a rebate, but I guess that isn't showing up properly. I'll put the MX100 ssd on my list to grab. And... just when...

Unfortunately in the current living space, wireless will be necessary for the next year. Honestly I had not heard of bluetooth on a motherboard. I just assumed to get a USB port adapter if it were necessary. I do have a bluetooth mouse/keyboard, so... maybe use it? Not seeing the need. I guess...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - HobbsTheTiger
I was originally going for the Extreme4 or 6, but I've seen reviews of Asrock cheaping out on components. I am looking for a pure gaming machine, and Asus/Gigabyte were reputable names. Going to be by Microcenter this weekend, and noticed both of the listed MB's had several "open box" varietie...
