    Motherboard for Intel Xeon E3-1230 v5

    I like the GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 motherboard but they do not list Xeon's as compatible. That's not to say it doesn't work so I am looking for advice or experience using Xeon's with the Z170 chipset. Thanks in advance!

    ASUS Will NOT Replace my Mobo After I Damaged it Myself.

    His original title was intentionally trying to use previous negative RMA issues to twist the arm of Asus to fix his blatant blunder. Malicious financial intentions should not be coddled or tolerated and I'd go as far to say that if he had been taught the value of honest business as a child he'd...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    That would be my biggest complaint with this TV. The color shift is pretty noticeable going from a sitting position to standing. So to be honest, it's more about being 'eye level' then it is about sitting to the left or right of the screen. It's not a deal breaker for me but I could see how it...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Having owned a JU7500 for almost a month now I can say that I NEVER notice the curve while using it. I'd recommend those debating on this feature to not include it in their calculations. In the end you pay more for something you won't notice. You might initially but give it a couple weeks and it...

    Well it randomly asked if I wanted to upgrade the software and since I accepted I haven't experienced the power cycle issue. /shrug

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Well my UN40JU7500 turned off by itself last night but turned back on and I didn't think any more about it until today when it happened again. This time it power cycled twice within the last 30 minutes. Anyone know what might cause this?

    Yet another Asus rma horror story

    haha! You know the name of Asus used to mean something to me until I read this thread. I had thoughts of buying the 980Ti Matrix on preorder at newegg but after reading this? HELL NO! Bad Asus! Bad! Asus will not change their business practices until it hurts their pocket and I intend to...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    IDK about anyone else but mine will automatically snap back to PC mode after quitting the game. So yes, you have to initially enable it but thats all.

    How often do you replace thermal compound?

    If you do at all? My old GTX 560Ti was hitting 57C at idle!! So I decided to take off the heatsink and replace the thermal compound. The stinking heatsink didn't want to let go so when it finally gave way my fingers got sliced up lol :( After calling myself stupid several times (well deserved)...
