It doesn't matter anymore guys. My motherboard is faulty. This is the sixth time all my fans went on max speed at boot up, no video on display, USB isn't working.. My GPU started grtting laggy in games and then my display froze. I updated my BIOS officially from intel's site (the latest) and since then it's be very unstable, and is most likely the cause of the issue based on the issues with my board.

Although when it does boot up it takes about 15 minutes, and it's very laggy in windows.

I've also tried using intel's bios recovery method four times by resetting the CMOS with the bios jumper and using a flash drive to get it to boot, and it worked for awhile until I rebooted..


Oh yeah, did I also mention that because my psu isn't modular, I have cables everywhere and it doesn't look good at all.. A mess. I'm sure it also really affects my temps, along with how the clutter makes installing/removing things impossible.

And a screw that was on my mobo was stripped, and now it's stuck. I am probably going to have to carefully use a boot cutter to get it undone..


So basically, my computer is worthless at the moment.

I think I'm just going to buy an R3F now.
