Thanks for looking into it, you may have found a little more than I did. I do have an identical board in my rig right now and this other one's heat is well well beyond mine. Its a supernatural beast from hell! I know a RMA is time consuming but I'm not into the idea of having to jerry-rig a fan any closer than they already are or playing with voltages since I just keep things stock in most cases. Especially since this is a build for someone else. But since they gave me the all clear in writing that I'm not voiding a warranty I am going to play around with it first!
From how I understand it, sometimes depending on the brand the companies will create small partitions on refurbished SSD's that where bad sectors and cut then dowm in size to be resold... not sure if this is the case with yours but its possible.
@teh-g i doubt sincerely that 700 W is not enough to power that PC .. only if PSU is older than 3 years, maybe we can call that PSU unreliable ...
example what 700 W PSU can power
Power Supply Calculator here .. part picker is crap when it comes to dimensioning power and reliability of power supply ... link text
MBO have AC97 codec on board, we are talking about software chip which relies on the CPU processing power to process audio signals that is one problem .. secondary problem is OS Windows 10 .. there is no driver for Windows 10 and Realtek AC97 codec (at least there is no stable and certified version of driver) .. so it is likely that there is a problem with driver or CPU is bottleneck when overloaded (maybe both).
Another thing when audio signal is distorted or scratchy the cause may be:
*Electromagnetic interference from internal PC components (like add on cards) or external devices ....
*Speakers or headphone too close to your monitor, the speakers or headphone can pick up electrical noise from your monitor.
*Hardware issue on PC or in headphones
*Poor audio quality or low volumes can occur if you are using passive (non amplified) headphone
*If you notice stuttering voices and static on some games or programs but not others, check with the software vendor for a software patch
@gord0 You won't know if it works if you are not mining from a pool unless you start solo mining which there is no guarantee you'll ever find a block to actual mine from. Either way,. you'll still need to do a bit more setting up and adding you wallet to the program etc,. Much easier to just start from a public pool where the site will give you the instructions on how to set up your config.
@teh-g i just change my video card with hers and it worked but when i was installing the drivers the monitor went off. i think the videocard is going down and this 2 mobos that todd got us doesn't have integrated video
