I felt the old DJ days coming back and I decided to apply a little bit to this song which I like. I did this over a year ago and I mixed up the acoustic and regular versions for a hot spin. I swear Andrew should consider releasing something like this!

This is a comfortable O.C. for me with my Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 2666MHz RAM running at those exact speeds. Glad I checked and didn't buy anything rated higher as I heard many can't get over 3000MHz on their RAM.

Anyone with a Ryzen build and a M.2 NVMe SSD for OS and regular SSD for games experience this kind of freezing on GTA V? This happens after 10 or so minutes of fast driving and mayhem which causes freezing for around a minute (check out the video at around 1:29).

The only way I can remedy this situation is to place the GTA V game install on the same drive as my OS and the Rockstar Social Club installation. My guess is the Samsung EVO 960 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD that I have is just too fast for a regular SSD to keep up with. But it doesn't explain why I don't have this problem with Watchdogs 2 as it is completely on the regular SSD along with the Uplay application and launcher.

Just wanted to post my Ryzen Build from a little over 2 weeks ago in my old Cooler Master CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. Never wanted a newer case due to how this one allows you to slip in a 2.5" or 3.5" HDD at the top!

Such a major pain in the ass to get Windows 7 Pro 64bit on a Samsung EVO M.2 NVMe drive with the new Ryzen mobos. It's worse than for the Samsung 950s! And on top of that, you have a mobo with absolutely no USB 2.0 ports which is what Windows 7 needs to actually be installed. Such a headache over 2 days figuring all of this out.

First I didn't even get a sound, peep, light, nada from my Ryzen system after setting it up and turning it on for the first time. Looking up debug codes in manual. Hmmmm... debug code not listed in manual.

Google and research...

Found something about standoffs shorting the mobo. So I took everything apart, took the mobo out the case and sure enough, there were 2 standoffs I installed from the last Ryzen mobo I tested and returned. Also, the screws have a wide lip and can touch the metal solder on the mobo to short it out. Had to install all of the paper washer standoffs on the screws to prevent that.

Never had to do that before. Oh well... I got further than I did before because at least there were lights and fans.

More Googling and research...

Found some random post that mentioned untightening the screws on the CPU block and reseating the RAM. Realized RAM was not in the right spot. Realized I should start with 1 stick because 2 are dodgy when you first post. Also realized I wasn't putting the 1 stick in the right spot on the mobo as it doesn't specifically tell you where 1 stick of RAM, should you have it, should actually go!

Still nothing on the screen... no post! More Googling and research...

Some random post says to try the 2nd PCIe spot on the mobo. Boom... picture and post!

UDPATE: I have since moved the GPU back to the 1st PCIe slot. I just didn't feel like taking a new picture of it.
