    On a whim I tried a key (Windows 8 PRO) I got with a Dell system board replacement and it worked... Heh nice and easy after all.

    Am I ever going to be able to activate this Win10 (final) that I installed yesterday?

    Did a fresh install as my windows 8.1 finally gave up. It's pestering me to activate but I don't have a key. Can I use any of my Windows 8 pro keys? Some are OEM and some retail. Cheers!

    New NVIDIA GeForce 344.75 WHQL Drivers

    Everything runs fine until you leave your PC for a few minutes and the screen powers down (depending on your power saving settings) When you move the mouse or keyboard to wake the screen up, it's flashing and shaking with lines all over it. All driver versions after 344.16 seem to be affected by...

    ASUS Z97 Motherboards - Official Support Thread

    So I bought a Kingston 240GB M.2 ssd to replace my aging Samsung 830, unfortunately I can't get it recognised in the BIOS. It absolutely ignores the M.2 socket, I have set all the bios settings to be correct (including the M.2 mode) I even removed a video card to see if that would help (PCI...

    ASUS Z97 Motherboards - Official Support Thread

    You would be able to copy your existing installation to an image file, then create the raid array and then copy it back. Creating the array will wipe your disks though, so there will be some manual labour involved. In windows 8.1 (backup / System Image Backup) create an image onto an...

    ASUS Z87 Motherboards - Overview, Guides and Official Support

    However much I read, I still can't see any discernable difference between the Z87 deluxe and Pro except the extra LAN port. What am I missing? Edit:- Nevermind, the boards are now listed properly on Asus site, so the comparisons work. Not €70 worth of difference though IMO.

    Zalman VF3000F Dual Fan VGA Cooler - Fit''s on a DirectCUII GTX570?

    Ì bought 2 GTX570 Direct CUII and the gap between them is minimal, therefore the top card gets very hot and very loud, very quick. I though about replacing he top cards cooler with the V3000F, it would have the double effect of creating a better gap between the cards. I guess what I am asking...

    Gainward GTX580 - GOOD edition, it's quiet apparently.

    No it bloody well aint!! After a few seconds of gaming the fans ramp up to ear splitting level, transporting me back to 2006 and my first Xbox360. At least I can't hear the wifes hairdryer when I have got it on. Is this supposed to be normal? All the reviews bang on about how quiet it is...

    Does the Gainward GTX580 output audio over display port?

    Thanks for getting back to me, I did check but couldn't find any proof either for or against. I might go for it anyway, if it doesn't work then I will patch in some other solution. I'll let you know :D
