Re: STAR WARS TIME! - Spoiler Lock Lifted

Luke as it stands would want the Jedi to end

Key words being as it stand.

And which film's fault is it? Return of the Jedi or The Last Jedi?

Re: How to? ... Fractal Define C and Noctua D15S

I recently built with D15S with a Fractal Design Define R5. My advice is to put the cooler on first and then route the cables afterwards so that during the process of adjusting board position you disconnect the cables by accident. However, you may have to put the boards inside the case first simply ...

Re: Computer Failure

Why don't you try to replace the CMOS battery itself.
It cost maybe 5 to 10 dollars at the most.

Re: Computer Failure

Short of changing components, I'm almost out of ideas. But first, I know you reset the CMOS by pulling the battery out and put it back again, but can you buy a new battery to put in? If it's not the out of juice cmos battery, then I think it's some sort of short. Although it's bread boarded, maybe s...

Re: STAR WARS TIME! - Spoiler Lock Lifted

I liked the Killiks trilogy (Dark Nest Trilogy) because it put the mighty Jaina Solo in her place and the big three really got off the sofa and told the galaxy who's really boss.

Yuuzhan Vong is soooooo old school.
Killiks are the ones you want.
No one will be able to defeat ReyTaat. There is no hope for the Resistance.
Edit: Re George Lucas's Star Wars. I thought it was inspired by Castle of Blood with Toshiro Mifune.
Edit 2: Actually, Abeloth!Rey would defeat ReyTaat....

I don't know about Asus's service in the USA, but don't expect Asus Canada to honor whole mobo RMA. They will make all kind of excuses to charge you full price on the dead board. In fact, I'm surprised they gave you a "bios chip". One time my ethernet port died. They took pictures of my bo...

1. Never shut off pc while flashing bios. It tells you not to do it. 2. Stop it with all these "just change the chip." Now he's got two useless mobo instead of one. 3. when flashing bios after failure, do not use the front panel usbs. Do not flash bios with front panel usb in the first pla...

Re: Need Advice for Building a PC Tower for 4K Home Entertainment Use

Blu Ray set up box.... You mean a 4k blu ray player like the sony ubpx800? I thought set up boxes were like appletv or roku or oem android box. It's way cost effective if you just buy a xbox one s. If pc, just try makemkv (a totally legit software) to rip the blu rays. Not sure if it works on 4k ones.
