    Thanks for all of the suggestions. I will wrench on it this weekend and report back when I narrow it down further or come up with a solution. Turns out the SSD is the culprit. Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks for the reply. I forgot that I had reset the CMOS and there was a newer bios which I flashed to the mobo. I'll add that to the first post.

    1080 Amp Extreme in Air 540

    Not so far. I haven't started cranking on it yet, only having time to play some of The Division..highest temp reached was 65C with 37% fan speed which I didn't notice over the system fans. The temperature upstairs during this time was in the low 80's F if that makes any difference.

    1080 Amp Extreme in Air 540

    Thanks guys for taking a look at this and the input. I'll move forward with the upgrade. I decided to get this model because of the cooler, lighting options, and color combo(yellow and black build). The regular Zotac Amp is an option and 25mm shorter but if I can fit the Extreme it's...

    1080 Amp Extreme in Air 540

    I have decided to upgrade my 780 Lightning with a Zotac 1080 Amp Extreme but there may be a problem. My case is a Corsair Air 540 which has a listed max gpu length of 320mm. The 1080 Amp Extreme is listed at 325mm but after doing some measuring it looks like it will fit...barely. I did...

    Steam: Over 500,000 Steam Controllers Sold

    I like mine when gaming on the tv. The gyro is pretty handy for aiming. You just have to be willing to tinker with it to get the most out of it. Last night I used it to play TW:Warhammer from the couch on the 60" which was kind of neat.

    Video Games Are Going To Change Retirement Forever

    My Dad is 68, retired and he games pretty much every day on his PC. Thanks to me he has quite the Steam backlog but seems content to stick to his Fallout 4, Stalker trilogy and World of Warships weekly rotation. PC gaming pretty much replaced his previous hobby of building military models and...

    PSN Download Speed

    I picked up a PS4 recently and my download speeds for games/patches are awful. As I sit here now I am looking at 90 minutes to download the last 800mb of a patch and 50+ hours to download The Last of Us. My downloads last night weren't any better with a 6gb file taking about 6 hours. I am...

    Blending scratches and scuffs on MSI RMA replacement

    I am getting ready to leave town for the week so pics wouldn't be up until next Sat/Sun. I think I'll just make it a Plasti dip project and put it in my secondary rig. I needed an excuse to go shopping for a new gpu anyway:D

    Blending scratches and scuffs on MSI RMA replacement

    I recently sent in my 780 Lightning for RMA and was sent a replacement with several areas on the top and backplate which have some scratches/scuffs/nicks. They aren't huge but they are there and they are visible and they aggravate the hell out of my OCD as I look through the case window. I...

    Which type of chair do you use/prefer for PC gaming at a desk ?

    Be wary of the Realspace bonded leather chairs. I bought one almost exactly like the one you listed and within a year the covering material peeled off the seat, lumbar and arms.

    ASUS is downgrading me to a GTX 780 on a GTX 780Ti RMA

    Cross ship or bust at this point. The way this whole thing has played out, I could see you sending back the 780ti..getting back a 780..and the vicious circle starts all over again.

    ASUS is downgrading me to a GTX 780 on a GTX 780Ti RMA

    Man what a bunch of bullshite. At this point I would sell the 780ti and Gene. Move on to a brand like EVGA and at least have the peace of mind to know you most likely won't have to face a clusterfrick like this again should something go wrong.
