I can't see good enough now to attempt fixing 14 bent pins. That's the main reason for building the new pc. Medicare doesn't cover glasses and mine went bad last year. I'm legally blind without them. This pc, when I sell it, is getting me my new glasses.
As of Monday, he's moved out of state.
PC shop's in my area are worthless.
That's the whole reason I learned to put motherboards in.
A few years ago, there was a flood in my area. My pc was running a virus scan. When I attempted to turn off my surge suppressor before water got to it, I got electrocuted and it fried my motherboard. The shop I took it too, stole my case, half my ram and tv tuner.
The motherboard they put in it went bad after 1 month. When I took it back for them to replace it, they had it for over a week and then told me I had to contact the motherboard manufacturer to get the motherboard they sold me and put in my pc, replaced.
Never again will a pc of mine go to a computer shop.
It's beginning to make me think that I'm gonna need to get another Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard over the Gigabyte one.
As I'm on my own on this one getting the cpu in.
The newer Asus Z170 motherboards have one thing that comes with them that the other companies don't have.
They have a cpu installation tool, you put the cpu in and then install it on the motherboard. The boards cpu header has a space in each outer corner, that the cpu installation tool snaps into.
Here's a YouTube video link on it.
I just noticed something. Asus now includes SteamOS on its driver disk. That's good for me as I don't like 2 of the Windows 10 Anniversary updates feature losses.
Sorry Microsoft, but I can't fit all the program's I use to the taskbar. I use the All apps in the start menu frequently. I also use my user folder that's been pinned to the taskbar since Windows Vista.
Take both away and SteamOS here I come.
