    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    Okay, so I officially have everything working now, including all three drives. What ended up working was switching the SATA cables from SATA6G_Ports 1, 2, and 3 on my motherboard to SATA6G_Ports 4, 5, and 6. Really pretty strange... Is it possible that these ports are damaged? Is there any way...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    So the system recognized the HDDs after i got the new PSU hooked up and up until power cycled my SSD abd i swapped the SATA cables around. The HDDs worked too, as when i got it to boot early on they still showed booted with the SSD. If there is a corrupted bootloader on them, how can I solve...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    Update: Swapped out the sata cables to my sata controller board in my corsair 800d case and my computer stopped recognizing the SSD, then both HDDs after another reset. I power cycled the SSD twice and reinstalled just that drive. Couldnt get past the BIOS screen. After messing around a bit, i...

    Windows Stuck Loading Loop

    TRAVM: I have had issues with my M4 Crucial SSD a couple times before where it would stop being recognized by the system, and thus I couldn't boot windows. The solution to this was I would take it out and power cycle it by connecting it to SATA power only and not SATA data for 20 minutes once or...

    Replacing Corsair AX 850 Gold

    I'll reach out to them, the funny thing though is I think I purchased in in June of 2012 if I remember correctly. I got it to turn on again and then had sort of an epiphany as to what the cause might be... I have been using wifi outlets for everything in my office for about 6 months so that...

    New Speaker-Sub w/ Mini Amp/DAC Recommendations

    Looking for suggestions on components for upgrading my speaker setup. Right now, have a 10-ish years old logitech 5.1 system with the volume/power knob on the center speaker that mounts to the bottom of my monitor. I get white-noise from the center speaker when there is no audio playing and one...

    Anyone know if the hybrid cooler can be removed? I already havre a custom water-cooled build and I want to buy an EKWB water-block and swap in this card for my old ones. I assume it can be removed just as easily as a fan cooler would but, want to be sure before purchasing. Thanks

    970 EKWB compatible with GTX 1080?

    Thabks for looking into it. Were you looking at cards by the same mfr? I.E. both EVGA? Unfortunately, i think eyeballing it is going to be the only way i can make a decision other than finding someone whose actually done it. I dont think EKWB will tell me (if i can even get them to acknowledge...

    970 EKWB compatible with GTX 1080?

    I currently have 2 EVGA Gtx 670 gpus running in SLI which are watercooled using EK Waterblocks (I built the rig 6 years ago). When I got around to cooling my cards only 2-3 years ago, it was hard to find blocks for the 670s because the 900 series cards were most current. Due to the fact that...

    Corrosion in Reservoir?

    Well it's not just because you mentioned it, double checking the bitspower fittings inside the reservoir, they are indeed nickel plated. And since they are the only parts inside the loop different from my past loop, and they are the only parts that are showing corrosion, its gotta be them. You...
