I would get these now since they're on sale and the processor/mobo combo and the case now. There's usually a after xmas/new years sale but don't get your hopes too high.

Yeah I wasn't really expecting everything but I've decided on council it's in my best interest to just charge what I can since I have a reliable job and I can likely afford like five times the minimum payment/month.

Hadn't thought about charging, ha. Since I might be building in say the next week or two, I have a mouse picked out, but what's a decent keyboard? I hear mechanical is good for gaming, what's out there?


The only spare keyboard we have has food caked and gunked into it from when my brother and I were like 13/11 rofl.

Mechanical keyboards are expensive. I honestly don't know since I don't pay attention to it.

Mechanical keyboards are no longer that expensive. It is expensive if you want a higher quality one such as Filco, Ducky or Leopold, since they're sold from Asia.

The Cooler Master Cmstorm Quick Fire is a great example of a cheap and amazing mechanical keyboard. $35 for boxing day in Canada, sold out instantly. I believe it's $50 regular priced. http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/k...s/quickfiretk/

If you want a brand that everyone seems to agree is nice is Logitech. They're releasing their first mechanical keyboard and reviews have been good so far. http://www.logitech.com/en-ca/produc...board?crid=825

If you're scared of spending way too much on a mechanical keyboard, you can look into an Azio one. It uses a rip off mechanical switch. I got to try one recently and it feels very cheap, but it does indeed have a mechanical feel to it.

With mechanical keyboards you'll also need to do research on which switch type is for you. There's an $8 sampler from WASDkeyboards if you want to feel them. http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.p...ler-kit-1.html

As of now, only the DVD tray doesn't work - it glows when I press the button, but doesn't come out. Is this just PSU wiring to look at?

It's running, I'm still not sure how to avoid BIOS every time I boot (which by the way is the most overdone BIOS I've ever seen rofl). I thought I set the boot sequence correctly, but maybe I didn't. I picked my harddrive cause it was the first choice ha.

One other thing, the monitor hums while I'm playing WoW. Kinda sounds like static sound in the background.

Did you plug in the SATA cable? It could be a faulty optical drive. Is their a error message when it boots up to BIOS? Update the BIOS and remember to save your BIOS settings. It might sound silly but is your BIOS key stuck?

LCD monitors usually interfere with fluorescent lights and the aftereffect is this humming sound or so I heard. Try calibrating your monitor/changing the display on your monitor and the refresh rate. If nothing works, might be a faulty monitor.

besides the minor issues, how's the pc?

Going to work soon, so I don't really want to play around with it haha. I know there is a cable plugged into the DVD drive, but my friends did most of the plugging. Shes's built before and with this case, albeit an older one.

There's no error in BIOS, it just brings me to it - I hit F11 for boot menu, and pick my harddrive, and I thought I hit set default but I dunno. I'm used to older BIOS, this one has mouse capabilities and everything. I'm really unfamiliar to this BIOS, though I'm sure it works the same way. I've never used a 'fresh' BIOS before either. It's minor, but I'd like my system to boot by itself ha.

Everything runs great, running WoW on Ultra at about 45-60 FPS, which is perfect.


Edit: Boots fine now.


There weren't any real refresh rate options (60 Hz and 59 Hz) and it's still humming... tried turning off my phone and nada. I really don't want to have to return anything now that I have it but the hum is so annoying ;_; I'll try switching jacks later and then I guess if that gets nothing I'll have to contact Asus.

Edit 2: Ok, so. I turned down the volume settings on the monitor itself, and it seems to want to behave better. Turned to it like 47. Zero humming, hooray!

The hell, what happened that made mechanical keyboards so cheap? Feels like I've been robbed now...even more so than I normally do whenever I look at parts a year or two later.

You probably have a UEFI, they're starting to replace BIOS. They're supposed to be more user friendly too, heh.

Are you really using your monitor for sound?

Yeah and I don't have an issue with it so why the hell do you need to come off so rude? I just wante a decent wow machine I wear a freaking headset for anything I play seriously (raid time)

So thanks for being a real ass. This is why I'm always hesitant to come to the teh forums, elitists.

Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something? It looks like you read my post in the most horrible tone possible.

If you were willing to spend so much on your computer, I don't see why you didn't bother with a decent set of speakers. I can only assume since you have a headset, you used the monitor speakers for when you need to hear outside sound for whatever reason.

Few things you can test for the humming.
Try plugging earphones to the same jack and listen for humming, if it doesn't hum it is probably the monitor or the cable.

Test your mobile phone or mp3 player with the monitor and see if you get humming.

Lastly change another audio cable.

If the monitor hums and is running off a multi plug power brick you might want to try plugging it directly to the mains, unclean power can cause humming as well.

But if it is the monitor and nothing you do helps then you might want to return it, but a high chance the new one will have the same issue if it is a design flaw from bad shielding.

More companies are making them now I guess. Though I still prefer my Ducky over any American brand. The keycap and build quality is just much better, however the price is 3x as much. Also can your keyboard do a light show? Well mine can. l0l
