I was Air Force. I was lucky enough to work with all the services. I have much respect for the front line Marines and Army! Navy EOD are seriously hardcore. They are Navy Divers first (they have to graduate dive school first). We all go to the same year long technical training school (joint service), but they do an additional underwater course.
I remember those early days... I actually knew what I was doing. Now I'm rockin a Broadwell-E setup, with only a 4.3GHz OC, and I did almost no tweaking. I miss the days of FSB OCing! 10 years will be on you before you know it!And thanks, it has been a privilege to serve alongside our brothers and sisters in arms. It has been a truly amazing experience!
I wouldn't zip tie them together with spacers if you can help it. I recommend using a 2.5" cage and velcro-ing to the inside of your case floor if you can. Here is what I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015RJ0X3W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks Enterprise, I plan to stick around as long as my wife will let me! And thanks for the cool badge!
This is officially my 10 year mark on OCN! I've seen this place go through some changes. But OCN has always stuck to the core belief of professionalism and courtesy. I started out as a very active member, became a moderator, and stepped down and became a lurker. I've rebuilt old computers: I've shared my past and who I am with some of you: I have to say, it has always been fun... Here is a screenshot of my first overclock on OCN (I dabled with an NF4 and...
From what I remember, PCIE 3.0 was implemented with Ivy Bridge chips. The Z68 chipset, when paired with an Ivy Bridge CPU, offered PCIE 3.0. The Gen 2 boards used a PLX chip to create more lanes for other devices not directly connected to the CPU (PCIE gen 3.0 required GPU lanes to be directly connected to the CPU).Tech Powerup: ASUS Unveils Trio of PCI-Express 3.0 Motherboards Based on Intel Z68 Chipset: 28 Sep 2011PEX 8680 - 80-Lane, 20-Port PCI Express Gen 2 (5.0...
If you unplug the PC from power, and it loses settings, it is most likely your battery. The standard battery is a CR2032. They are sold at Walmart. They are used in key fobs and garage door openers. So they are available most places.
Thanks for the info. I set defaults (which set ram to auto at 2133 cas 15) and I still get bF Q-Code while refusing to wake from sleep. Is this just a product of running Broadwell-E with this board?
Thanks for the reply!Everything is running stock including the ram at DDR4 2400 CL 14-16-16-31 1.2v now. I've had to disable sleep for the time being, but I did some ram OCing this weekend, but I put it back to 2400 this evening. I don't use XMP, I just set the ram to 2400, set the primary timings and I set the voltage to 1.230v for all channels. I haven't touched any of the other voltages as I wanted to run the setup at stock and "ease" into the OC. But I want to make...
OCN, I'm trying to figure out a sleep mode issue:I just built my system with the X99-A, 6850K, Seasonic 750W Gold, and 4x8Gb Team Vulcan DDR4 2400. I also have 2ea Crucial M500 480Gb SSDs in RAID 0 (will upgrade to NVMe in a few months) * This issue happened in non-RAID setup and with only 2.8Gb*. Windows 10 Pro x64 and drivers are up to date. With everything at stock, system runs fine with one exception; when the computer goes to sleep (default power setting set to...
