Does it run without electrical issues? Then there's no way it can be a BMW. :D

Pitch out your window anything from Alienware and look elsewhere for anything computer-related.

SSD's should never be filled to more than half capacity. Start storing more on HDD's and only the most-needed apps on your SSD.

Switch to air cooling. Set it and forget it.

Oddly enough, the app fixed Wolfenstein 2 crashing on my PC. Windows thought it had the latest driver but it didn't.

Besides Garry's Mod, Trouble In Terrorist Town is a fantastic mod. Give it a shot! The creator of GMod is sadly a douche nozzle, however.

Try this:

Enter the BIOS and go to Advanced > USB Configuration > Make sure Legacy USB Support is set to Enabled, or Auto (either setting should work for your purposes). Also make sure that the USB port you are connecting the drive you prepared earlier is 2.0. Some USB 3.0 ports are rather picky about allowing devices to boot, especially if they are connected to third party controllers on the motherboard.

You've gone into the bios and tried both as BOOT #1?

Google is your friend, check this:

You may just need to create a new partition that's under 250gb. I've read that Win 10 will go crazy if trying to install onto an SSD or HDD with a ton of space.

For anything related to your MOBO, go with the manual that came with it. It will also list proper placement of your GPU and RAM sticks, as well as fan headers.

Clearing the CMOS fried my last MOBO. Very hesitant to ever try that again. And by that, I mean just taking out the CMOS battery and putting it back in.

Skip to 17 minutes in the following video; it shows where every power connection go. Check your MOBO manual as it will tell you where to put video card, ram sticks, etc. Good luck! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bUghCx9iso

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First Build wont power up"

Read the MOBO manual and check to make sure all the little pin connections are in. And quoting Brock, check the 24 and 8-pin connections.

Skip to 17minutes in the following video and watch what he does, it goes through step-by-step where every power connector goes. Now, it may vary based on your MOBO but again, check your manual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bUghCx9iso

Lastly, make sure your video card and ram sticks are plugged in the right slots according to the manual. My MOBO was fairly specific about where those two parts went. Good luck!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "which case should I get?"

One comment I never see about the Enthoo Pro is the tempered glass makes 'creaking' noises whenever the temperature fluctuates. It sounds like a popping sound and it is definitely the glass as it has happened with different MOBO's and parts in my system. A very irritating feature and makes me want to avoid Phanteks in the future, or at least any cases with tempered glass.

My old Antecs all-metal case never made a sound. That being said, the Enthoo Pro has fantastic cable management, great mounts for HDD's and SDD's alike and is just a superb case to build in. Maybe the Enthoo without glass is better.

I've always used isopropyl alcohol with toilet paper. Some would frown at using toilet paper (roughness) but it's always been fine for me.

If you buy Win 10 again, go for the FULL version, never get OEM again. FULL can be transferred to different mobos.

Don't feel bad. I yanked my video card out of my last MOBO, ripping the PCI slot off with it. I guess you could call it a happy accident as I'm now on a new MOBO and the Ryzen platform. Always remember those darn PCI tabs.

Anyway, I recommend Youtubing a removal vid of your card.

I'm no expert but the following coolers are compatible with your case. I've read the CRYORIG H7 is a good bet. I would plug all your parts into a list just to make sure RAM clearance is there, cpu compatibility, etc.

I use Afterburner to control my GPU's fan speed, didn't know it was a monitoring software as well. I'll give HWInfo a shot and couple that with Speccy. I've read AIDA is not free.

I would just turn Ultra Fast Boot off, there's no reason to have it on really, and it can hinder attempts to get into the BIOS should you ever need to get into it.

Do you have multiple hard drives or SSD's? Make sure that you have your hard drive with the OS on it set to BOOT OPTION #1 in the Boot Options within the BIOS.
