I know, right? That got me too.
Just got my rig all up and running this evening, is she a beauty or what, I really appreciate her now that I had to fight so hard to get her working but I just love this motherboard, it worked with no problems and even came with Kaspersky free of charge for one year.
why are people still insisting on installing shitty AV/AM programs that provide no better protection...
So far so good, I stress tested the PC by playing a bunch of different games all night and its been on for the past 12 hours or so without restarting or acting funny so I guess it works.
If you've got Windows 10, just stick with Windows Defender....you don't need anything else. Just keep things updated.
and crank the UAC up to max..... you shouldn't ever see a UAC prompt unless you're installing or uninstalling something for the most part.
Well, it was free so I'm not gonna complain!
Installing advertisement basically.... "free" isn't always free...
So my video cards do not support Freesync even though my screen does, woe is me.
There's no way a 480 doesn't support Freesync! (or is there?)
Well when I was downloading the driver off AMD's site I saw somewhere that it didn't (don't know if it was there or somewhere else) because when I go to my user control panel for the driver to turn it on it says "Freesync not supported" but this monitor is supposed to support Freesync, I even installed its bloomin driver.
Edit: @IvanV Here:-
Is the monitor is connected to the graphics card via Display Port and is Freesync enabled in the monitor settings (monitor's own settings, not software)? It's under Menu\Picture\Game Adjust.
Weirdly enough, LG's US website doesn't list either a manual or a driver for the monitor, but the HK site does, so if other things don't help, maybe try the driver?!
Ok Freesync was disabled on the monitor, will now restart and see what happens.
And yes it is connected via Display Port.
Yay it's on, no more screen tearing for me!
Edit: - just in case anyone else who is looking at this in the future for reference I'd like to add I had to turn on Freesync after I enabled it on my monitor and then restarted my computer.
Yes... i have to keep telling people that Freesync MUST be enabled on the display device before you can enable it on the computer..
Keep in mind that if power outages or weirdness happens to your display... you are likely to have to go back into the settings and re-enable it.
Personally i don't understand WHY THE HELL they just don't TURN IT ON by default... it's not like the monitor is suddenly broken with any other cards or device that doesn't support it.
Majority of the displays released today support freesync over DP + HDMI...
I've got an APC Back UPS 1500 so hopefully outages won't be a problem, but thanks for that.
Dafuq? Where did all that go? I'd have guessed that was a £1000-1400 system in British money including the monitor and peripherals.
I don't understand the need for a Z series board whatsoever in this build. Anything with the appropriate socket, a decent onboard sound chip and 4 DIMM slots would have been fine.
