    [SOLVED] Do I have the correct or incorrect Bios from Factory? ... this is my Conundrum!!!

    Happy murdering! I would honestly do a fresh install of Windows by now. Sounds like your installation is rotten to the core.

    [SOLVED] Do I have the correct or incorrect Bios from Factory? ... this is my Conundrum!!!

    The Bitlocker warning is just there to remind you to do a backup IF you are using Bitlocker encryption in the first place. Since you are not using Bitlocker you can safely ignore this warning and proceed with the flash.

    [SOLVED] Do I have the correct or incorrect Bios from Factory? ... this is my Conundrum!!!

    You do need a working Windows installation to use the Windows updater, so I can understand that issue. :) But as long as Windows is working properly I would not hesitate to use the updater. They were problematic 10-15 years ago, but that has improved luckily. Often pre-built computers have...

    Did I Degrade or Destroy my 5950x? Now with a response from Asus on page 2!

    This is Ryzen Master on my computer, Asus CH8 Dark Hero and R9 5950X. Only enabled PBO and set manual limits. No other tweaks for the processor. Notice the empty MEM VDDIO and MEM VTT fields. Your screenshot says OC Mode: Default. Which would mean stock frequencies with no PBO. Resulting in a...

    [SOLVED] Do I have the correct or incorrect Bios from Factory? ... this is my Conundrum!!!

    You have a pre-built Asus computer which has model specification G15CE. Hence the bios name and version. Asus has a Windows compatible bios updater for version 2.15, why are you not running that instead of fiddling with bios flashback?

    SSD takes 35secs to boot in comparison to other people's 7sec

    This is a quite common issue with USB keyboards and modern UEFI bios in my experience. Make sure you are plugged into the motherboard directly (on the back of your computer usually). And preferably through a USB2 port, not a USB3 port. If you still have this issue, unplug your computer power for...

    Ageia PhysX and Windows 10

    Yeah I get the collectability and novelty aspect of it. I just wasn't aware that there would be any difference between running a GPU or PPU for Physx. If that is true for some titles, it's another field similar to the old Voodoo cards I guess. Anyways, good luck and have fun! :D

    What Res monitor is "usually" used when getting recommended specs?

    Yeah, assume it's at 1080p unless otherwise stated.

    Ageia PhysX and Windows 10

    Wait, what? A modern Geforce will out-accelerate any Ageia PPU card so why would you want to run with one?

    What could be the cause of such disappointing audio quality?

    Have you tried with different headphones? May be as good a place to start as any imho. Just to get a feel for if the problem is in the signal chain or cans.

    970 EKWB compatible with GTX 1080?

    Not sure I'd want to gamble with a 1080 like that. But I took a quick look at some images of reference 970 and 1080 cards. And the power supply area on the 1080 have more components that require cooling than the 970. So you may run into either clearance issues or contact issues there. Otherwise...

    SSD takes 35secs to boot in comparison to other people's 7sec

    You need to be in UEFI mode with fast boot enabled to reach those speeds. Otherwise all the good old bios screens will eat up your boot seconds. And what is so critical that you need those 20 seconds anyway? Like was asked above, where do you spend the most time during boot? Black/bios screens...

    Monitor calibration tool recommendation

    Your calibrator is a decent device. If you start using the ArgyllCMS and DisplayCAL combination, mentioned above, properly you will see great results. DisplayCAL is not a tool that works well out of the box though, you need to learn what settings you need to use for your displays to be well...

    2 x 200 mm fan yields the same temperature as 2 x 140 mm fan

    Nobody can force the OP to understand the physics of fans. The math have already been gone through, and I pointed out that in the case of the different sized Noctua fans the end result of the math is already in the specs. The simplified truth is that a fan provides cooling based on 2 main...
