  1. Settings wiped....


    WTH Microsoft. I can understand the need to sometimes update to add features, but why wipe ALL my desktop settings. I can no longer change my taskbar colors unless I am in darkmode???? THAT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE AT ALL!!!! And why wipe my background....what would be the purpose of that? Even my screensaver app no longer is working. Still cannot use some hardware because Microsoft does not allow unsigned drivers to operate in windows 10....at least give us the option to have them if we want. This cr@p is why I am going back to Windows 7 with my next build. At least I don't have to worry about Microsoft screwing it up.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Cant activate windows 10 after wipe, key is from windows 8.1 that i upgraded from

    Hi Ryan,

    To assist you better, we would like to confirm if Windows 10 is activated before you wiped your computer.

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the Activation troubleshooter. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Update & security.
    • On the left pane, choose Activation.
    • Click Troubleshoot.
    Should you need further assistance, feel free to get back to us.
