I think my motherboard might have finally died on me. I tried booting using both a graphics card and the onboard Radeon 3000 graphics with no luck, tried replacing the RAM, and tried clearing the CMOS using the jumper manually. All the fans and the DVD drive are functioning properly, including the fans connected to the CPU fan header and system fan header, so the PSU appears to be functioning properly. Also, the CPU was kept at safe temps, never reaching 60°C during prime95.
I expected the motherboard to fail first because it has the lowest end chipset, the 760G (Not originally for FX CPUs), and it was extremely cheap for a new motherboard at $30 when I got it.
Learn from my experience; Don't use a 760G board for an FX processor.

+Fabian Schreiber It probably isn't, and I'm going to test it on another motherboard I have.

Has anyone here ever bought a graphics card labeled "for parts" and repaired it? And if you did, which method did you use?

John Kluk i used very often the oven method and in so many cases it was successful. Its not Bullshit! Try it out before you say its bullshit. In the past i baked for my self a Notebook Mainboard and it has worked after that for 3 years, a 8800 gts with graphic artefacts and my 770 gtx with artefacts and much more hardware and all without flux. Im also a learned systemelectronicer and not a noob in electronics.

By the way i use for 25 minutes 180° celsius and after that time open the oven and let it slowly cool down.

Now is the time to get a Fury X if you've been waiting for a price drop. The XFX model is only $400 and comes with a $10 promotional gift card.

After the recent price drop, the Fury X now is a better deal than the gtx 1070 at the same price for gamers who want adaptive sync technology. The cheapest Fury X available is $430: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127890&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
While the cheapest Gtx 1070 is $420: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1260391-REG/msi_gtx_1070_aero_8g_oc_geforce_gtx_1070_aero.html
While the prices and performance are close, the prices of adaptive sync monitors appropriate for each card are not. Both of these are the cheapest available 1440p 144hz monitors, but notice the large price gap: Acer 144hz WQHD G-Sync monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009848&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
Acer 144hz WQHD Freesync monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009769&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
The Freesync monitor is $180 cheaper than the comparable G-sync monitor.

nice, but my local stores havent lowered the prices.. still at 770euros... ahaha I sent an email in last week telling them they are crazy.

this is almost a better option than the 1070, its at least faster in DX12 and Vulkan. That 4GB of HBM worries me a little though. But its fine with 1080p.

I found out the correct way to use a hard drive cage for a SSD when there is no adapter.

Doom is $30 off with a promo code on Newegg. This is lower than the summer sale price.

+Kody Barks it's a raidmax vortex v3 and I do NOT recommend it. I just had it sitting around from the time I snatched it for $10 and figured out it was the equivalent of a jet engine with all of my gaming computer and the needed fans in it.

I overclocked my GPU and CPU some more, and got this with a stable overclock. Is this pretty good for a r9 280x in the unigine valley benchmark?
