    Samsung 840 Evo - FIrmware Update Failed

    I'm having problems too because of AMD compatibility. Can't update the firmware in Windows with Magician and tried creating a bootable CD and USB drive (using YUMI) with the ISO but it doesn't seem to boot.

    Windows Experience Index fails after Bulldozer hotfix

    As the title states, I ran the WEI on a clean install of W7 with an 8120 and it ran fine. I installed the two hotfixes from Microsoft for the FX cpus and now at the end it says the WEI could not finish because of a driver or problem, etc. The only thing that's changed has been the installation...

    Rattle sound in psu

    I tried that along with tilting it every direction and sometimes it sounds like the "object" becomes stuck on something but then it moves around after some more tilting.
