Hey, sorry to revive this but I'm getting the same symptoms again and clearing CMOS isn't solving it this time. Any other suggestions?
Holy ****, that actually solved it completely. Immediately booted with no problems whatsoever after shorting the jump with a pair of scissors. Was definitely expecting a multistep process and hold time with Gigabyte customer service.
We had a power outage about 5 days ago, maybe that contributed? It worked up until today though, super odd.
What do you want to use it for? Gaming? Streaming? Rendering, video editing? Gaming at what resolution? 1080p144+, 1080p max settings, 1440p/4K?
What country do you live in, for pricing? Do you live near a Micro Center?

PCPartPicker and its community condemns those types of keys -- I should know, I bought one for my first build and it was a dupe, so I had to buy a genuine license anyway. Just fork out the money to Microsoft.
And when you get a real Windows key -- yes, you'll want to use the media creation tool to put the W10 ISO onto a USB stick and boot off of it.
What that first build sacrificed was build quality, which we can improve without the monitor and kb/m in the budget. Much higher quality case and power supply, a nicer motherboard with some white accents.

Locked i5 and an RX 480. Tried to stick as close as possible to aesthetic without sacrificing performance. Included OS, monitor, kb/m.
Blue accents on your RAM, SSD, and case (and mobo, kinda). White accent on the graphics card.
What are you using this computer for? Pure gaming? If so, what's your desired performance? 1080p60? 1080p144Hz? 1440p60?
Are you doing any streaming/editing/rendering?
for the second time,
Yeah -- $1500 and $2500 are very different price points, and more specifics on your needs tells us which end of that spectrum to go towards.
I would highly recommend a new R7 processor over the X99 lineup, (especially the 6850K, an awful value compared to the 6800K).
"Future-proofing" on a motherboard pretty much doesn't exist. Not sure what you're referring to when you say it, but as long as it's SLI-compatible and it has good ports, you'll be fine. Arguably, since you'd be an early adopter of the X370 with this build, so it'd be as "future-proof" as it gets.
You absolutely do not need an 1000W PSU for that lineup, by the way.
What is your budget? Where are you located? Do you need a monitor, OS, or any peripherals included in that budget?
Well, freesync doesn't matter if you're not using it. If a more expensive monitor had G-sync, it would be a different story. IPS is definitely worth it though.
Ooh, didn't even notice the color scheme. I'd argue that the unlocked processor is worth it to sacrifice the aesthetic to a black/red, but that's obviously a personal choice.
Oh, I guess I leapt in logic there in that wording.
A SATA-based M.2 drive gives no noticeable speed boost over a SATA-based 2.5" drive.
That's a SATA-based SSD, which gives no noticeable speed boost over a 2.5" drive. NVMe drives are a different story, but the MX300 isn't going to give you a boost for the price. Also, a 550W PSU won't be enough for future SLI.
You can also save $80 on the motherboard and RAM and fit the unlocked + great HSF cooler in. Also, got an IPS monitor for cheaper. (The rating is just one guy with a dead pixel, which is shipping damage.)
Monitor, any peripherals included in budget?
If you don't understand them, then you definitely shouldn't be worried, because you'll be doing absolutely nothing risky.
my budget is quite low.

Give a number or we can't do anything.
Both your CPU and GPU aren't up to speed, but a GPU upgrade will do much more for your money for gaming performance. 4GB more of RAM for a total of 8 is pretty necessary for most things now too.
A $100 graphics card would be the RX 460, $150 for the RX 470, $200 for the RX 480, $350 for the GTX 1070. All would give you much better gaming performance than the GTS 450.
OCing is literally a one or two-step process.
You go into BIOS, change your BCLK frequency, bump up your voltage a little bit, see what works.
It's not the end of the world if you crash due to undervoltage during a stress test. The crash PREVENTS damage, it's not a RESULT of damage. The only way to possibly damage a component is to overvolt, and you want lowest possible stable voltage anyway, so you wouldn't be trying for that.
Watch any tutorial on the process to get any idea of how much to bump up stock voltage by.
I had no experience, watched one video, and went up next day.
Pretty good. Much better than the Intel chips for streaming, as it takes advantage of all cores. Pure gaming performance is a little behind, but it should catch up with kernel/driver updates and new games.
Assuming a 10k build, **** it, let's go for it.
E5-2687 V4 is going to be absolutely wild for you, under a custom EKWB loop. 1080 Tis in SLI. 2.5TB solid state storage, 10TB mass storage, 64GB of RGB RAM, one of the best cases on the market, monster of a PSU.
I got you a 4K 60Hz monitor and a 1440p 165Hz monitor, both IPS, both G-Sync.
All your peripherals will sync through Corsair's software because RGB lighting because **** this budget.
RGB fans because **** it, sound card because **** it, wireless adapter because **** it.

I'd personally recommend an IPS display for $10 more to round out your budget -- huge difference in image quality and color gamut. Good parts all around here though. I've never seen a test of the T500 vs. the Premium Edition, so I'm not sure if it'd be any better.
If you do not have an interest in overclocking, do NOT buy a Z270 board, you'd be wasting your money. The only benefit of a Z270 board is for unlocked chips to overclock with.
Any B250 board will do you well. If you do want to overclock in the future, you'd need to upgrade your CPU to an i5-7600K, or i7-7700K.
I'd recommend a better monitor like the Acer GN246HL, 144Hz instead of 75 for just 10 dollars more.
Rest of the build looks pretty good.
Please follow the posting guidelines so we can help you get the best build for your needs.
Due to the 1080 Ti release and the subsequent 1080 price drop, I was able to fit a 1080 into this build, although I assumed no OS/monitor/peripherals because you didn't follow the posting guidelines.
Great parts across the board.
This is definitely not the best performance you can get for the money.
The H60 is a very poor bang-for-the-buck cooler, you'd get the same performance out of something like the Cryorig H7. You won't see real-world differences between an 850 EVO and almost any other SSD in a gaming build. The RX 480 is a better performer for the money in almost all cases than the 1060, and in this budget, you should definitely be able to fit in a 1070. The NEX is awful for the money, the G2 costs the same and is a far more reliable performer.
I have no idea how to spend more money than this, honestly, except on peripherals, so you have $800 more to go wild with, I suppose.
Flagship Ryzen chip will give you fantastic performance all-around. Put under the H115i for your CFM requirement that I won't understand. Note that you'll need to get the AM4 retention bracket off of Corsair's website, put that link in the build. That's the compatibility warning, don't worry about that.
NVMe boot drive, 2TB solid-state, 5TB HDD as requested, 1080 Ti in SLI as requested, case as requested. Motherboard and the 32GB RAM have RGB lighting. Only way to get more in there would be to pick up some fans like the NZXT Aer w/ Hue+.
1080 Ti isn't in the PCPP wattage calculator yet, but with 250W TDP, I'm leaving some headroom. 850 will probably be all you need, I'm just being safe. Top-of-the-line there.
Let me know if you'd like some peripheral suggestions.
For the 1700, I've heard it should be stable at stock and adequate for light overclocks, but I'm not too educated on the capabilities of the Wraith Max.
Put under a Noctua cooler, X370 board in case you're ever looking for SLI, dual channel RAM, an absolutely beautiful case, and a top-of-the-line PSU, for the cost of the full terabyte of solid state storage. Very high-quality components across the board.
Kaby Lake i5 and an RX 480 8G, top-of-the-line components across the board. Best performance for the buck.
Here you go, fit a 1080 in the budget which will drastically improve your gaming performance. Kept the case Phanteks, because the Luxe is a couple years old and not really worth its price point anymore, put in a Ryzen chip with XFR for streaming performance, and got you a non-ridiculously overpriced keyboard.
Do you need a monitor, OS, kb/m, or any other peripherals included in the budget? Will you be using the PC for strictly gaming, or will you do any rendering/editing/streaming? Preferred form factor? Aesthetic?
i thought i was having a stroke reading that jfc
A new motherboard will do absolutely nothing to improving speed, performance, or have almost any benefit whatsoever.
Consider upgrading your GPU -- sell the 470 and grab a 480, or a GTX 1070 if you have enough money.
Ryzen is right now primarily mostly going to be worth it in workstation builds -- I picked it for you for its editing/rendering potential over one of the mainstream Intel chips.
Gaming benchmarks are low, but I think two things are going to happen that'll level that out -- Windows kernel will update, and GPU drivers will update. Sometime in the next few months, the benchmarks will start to level out, probably go in Ryzen's favor.
That's probably what I was thinking of, I knew the NEX had the capacitor issues. I should probably do my research on the GQ, I just know to not recommend them.
Nope. More wattage isn't better. G3 is a much higher quality unit, built with better capacitors and such. Build quality is the most important thing here. Overclocking is fine on the 550, you have enough headroom. If you wanted to go with SLI in the future, that'd be a different story, but you'd need a different motherboard anyway.
I made a build and it ended up pretty similar to this, so just a couple revisions -- got you a better PSU for the same price, a comparable monitor for less, and saved a bunch on your Windows 10 -- you don't need the USB stick, you can use the media creation tool to put it on a stick that you already have and save 40 bucks. Used that to upgrade you to a 240GB SSD for some more key programs, and I was able to fit an OK kb+m and adapter into your budget.
Best bang-for-the-buck CPU in the G4560, the necessary stuff around it. Had room to upgrade your GPU and PSU to the 8G and G2 respectively.
You're a great candidate for a Ryzen build. Paired the cost-effective R7 1700 with an 8G RX 480. Welcome to team red.
16GB RAM for your multitasking, SSD/HDD combo for lighting-fast boot/OS and mass storage, great case and PSU to round it out.
See, the thing about "better parts" is that you can't put "AMD FX" and "good part" in the same sentence in 2017. Even the FX-8350 is completely outperformed by something like the Pentium G4560, currently the perfect chip for bang-for-the-buck CPUs. (Yes. The single-core performance on the 8350 is so terrible that a dual-core [hyperthreaded] chip beats it in all gaming benchmarks.)
Here's everything you wanted, plus an SSD, which the prebuilt didn't have, and will boost your usability tremendously.
I'd recommend a CPU change to the hyperthreaded Xeon E3-1231 V3 for $8 more and a monitor change to the Acer GN246HL for 144Hz instead of 75Hz for $1 less.
Case is of course personal preference, but if you want to get $7 back under budget, the NZXT S340 is a great case for a little less.
It probably had just ran out of stock from the sale, but it looks like the sale's still going on when you click on buying options.
Yeah, this is the best you're gonna get for new parts.
Please put your parts into a System Build to put it in a readable format.
Unlocked i5 and a GTX 1070 in that ITX form factor. Should give you great gaming performance.
B350 isn't locked, just no SLI.
Sign me up for that 275W TDP and 90C temps boiiiii
I've never heard of any problems with Steam. It has the best performance/$ on the SteamVR benchmark, that's all I saw from googling.
