    Does Haswell heat your case?

    It's obvious Haswell and Devil's Canyon cpus run hot, but do they actually output more overall heat than ivy bridge and sandy bridge? Or do they simply run hot due to their die shrink, thus heat dispensation is more difficult?

    MSI Mobo died 2 months out of warranty :( Anything I can do?

    sadly no :( I'm a bit surprised there is no kind of grace period of like 3 months within the warranty that MSI might honor out of goodwill...I know other companies do this for smaller electronics.

    MSI Mobo died 2 months out of warranty :( Anything I can do?

    I understand, maybe I'm just extra sour because it just happened. I've never had a motherboard fail before, let alone in under 2 years.

    MSI Mobo died 2 months out of warranty :( Anything I can do?

    My MSI motherboard simply stopped working and it's exactly 2 months out of the warranty so I can't RMA. Does MSI ever honor products that die so close to within the warranty? I used their support ticket system and got rejected. This is the first motherboard I've owned that ever died on me...

    Ripping my hairs out :( Computer put to sleep, won't turn on!

    My oc was stable for quite a while. Resetting the cmos also doesn't exactly work because I saved my oc to a profile on my motherboard.

    Ripping my hairs out :( Computer put to sleep, won't turn on!

    Very strange, I've never had problems.with the board until now, even overclocked. I can't seem to get into the bios. I have to press the restart button to get into windows now. Otherwise I can only power on and never get into windows.

    Ripping my hairs out :( Computer put to sleep, won't turn on!

    put my new 1155 system to sleep and it won't turn on. Keyboard and mouse have power but it doesn't even post. I've read that it may have something to do with the motherboard power states. It IS overclocked, but I left almost all of the power saving features off which boggles me so even if I...
