    Motherboard issues over the last two weeks, Having issues booting up..

    Checked Memory several times (All ok)
    Graphics Card is new and tested else where (All ok) and the same issue with a different card
    CPU is fine..
    PSU is 850 watt corsair, and have tried a 650 watt Corsair also.. both are fine.

    Reset the Bios on the motherboard to Default several times still not change.. I'm having to boot up, the issue appears then need to hard reset to boot up and boots after that.. every time I shut down I have to do this process everytime.

    So time to go to a new set up, and ebay the memory and cpu..

    I have had AMD in the past, but always preferred Intel..

    Besides that I'm not a total Intel fan.. But the Ryzen bundles came out a little more expensive so I went with the i5 7600k Kabylake. the only additional cost were I upped the memory to 16GB (2x8) instead of the standard bundle of 8GB (2x4).

    Just will need a new windows 10 Key in due course..

    You shouldn't need a new key unless you were selling the motherboard with the key for free. You can transfer the windows 10 key even as an OEM key at least once (though i've already managed to do it twice without calling in)...

    If you can still boot up the other board... you can pull the key and wipe it from the board. Otherwise re-activating on the new board using the existing windows installation may require a call in..

    I picked up THIS set up a while back (although no where near that price). Each pack comes with 1 cable, 1 Lightning head, and 1 Micro USB head.

    Sicario was good, and Ex Machina wasn't too bad. Haven't seen the rest though.

    Trancendence and Ex Machina are good. Haven't seen the others though.

    I just finished watching Chappie.
    NOT what I expected from the trailers. They made it look like an action/comedy. It's not.
    Far deeper than that.
    Very similar feelings to District 9. Not what I expected at first, very slow, very long build up, very good ending.
    Very good film though it was psychologically exhausting.

    Makes sense since it's from the same director. ;)

    Elysium is also from him. Personally I liked it, but I would have liked it better if Sharlto was the lead instead of Damon. Which reminds me, I still haven't watched Hardcore Henry yet....

    So the LG phone I bought, I didn't like. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with it, it just didn't sit well with me.

    So I bought this phone from BLU, the BLU Advance 5.5 HD and I got it in gold. Hopefully it will be the end all and be all for a while, or else I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy a Samsung Galaxy S8.

    One nice thing about this phone is it comes with a see through silicon cover and a screen protector included at no extra cost.

    It's a great offer as you will not recording on it. U1 cards are good speed for everyday use but not for recording say 4K.
    25 is a very good price, just make sure it is not a fake one.
    Enjoy your new tablet.

    I also got a Universal Folio case that allows me to stand the tablet and rotate it 360 degrees. Some apps simply refuse to rotate to a landscape view...which I prefer.

    I considered getting a Samsung phone, but I think Samsung is overpriced. Especially since I'm trying to cut my losses.
