  1. Am slowly accumulating all the bits and pieces I need to build my next PC. Just need some information regards BIOS update and BIOS battery replacement. Want to replace the BIOS battery as this MOBO has been sitting on shelf for about 9 months or so. and most MOBO makers provide cheap CR2032 3VOLT BIOS battery. Want to replace it with good quality Seiko, Maxell battery. I know they last a long time especially when one does not power off PC often, Getting to battery is somewhat tedious as requires removal of Graphic card and other PCI slot cards as battery sits under a heat sink plate. So bef

  3. Thanks Bitmaster. Have purchased the: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/PRESTIGE-X570-CREATION and down track will buy the https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-9-3900x to go with it. With RAM 32GB, 3600MHz is available as either 4x 8GB or 2x 16GB and am wondering are they any advantages/disadvantages as to which configuration? 2x 16GB may have the advantage of more air space in/around the RAM strips so is cooler...can radiate heat off better.
  4. Threadripper CPU are impressive but prices are just over the moon for me. I could build a gutsy enough PC for just the price of the basic Threadripper. Have been thinking on what to get. One possible combo might be: https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-9-3900x https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/PRESTIGE-X570-CREATION Do u think this pairing would work - seems to meet many of my need: eATX, 5x PCI/e ports, lots of USB ports, 6SATA ports, 2xM2 My only experience with MSI is with MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Duke OC 11GB which I have been happy with. What do you think of MSI MOBOs
  5. Thx for info Bitmaster. Looks like I need to clarify my needs a bit better. I find the sheer quantity of hardware options a tad overwhelming. Many combinations and many products. I do lack good info about the latest performance hardware components. Current PC put together in 2013. With new MOBO, CPU & RAM the following are my considerations/needs and things I do not want too. * Will install W10-64bit Pro on Samsung SSD 2.5” SATA for OS. Not M2 SSD. But want board that is capable of using 2x M2 as I will probably go to this in future. * Will keep my current PC case as is
  6. Current system is: **running w7/64 and using a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Duke OC 11GB, 16GB RAM Kingston Hyper X Genesis-DDR3L-1600 on Asus Z87C MOBO, CPU is i7 4770, no overclocking, OS on an Intel SSD and DCS on dedicated Samsung 860Pro. Want to upgrade MOBO, CPU, RAM....AMD CPU, 32GB RAM & ASUS MOBO are what I want. Will be installed with W10/64bit Professional. Particularly wanting advice about which MOBO. Needs to be Asus, durable, with emphasis on performance not on added hardware features which I would not use. For example I would not need to pay for a MOBO with high end on
  7. updating to latest: DCS 2.5.6.45317 Open Beta fixed this issue for me...Gary

  9. Problem Still Exists DCS Openbeta 2.5.6.44266 With last update as per title this bug still exists. Is a bug that can only be fixed by DCS...not really something the user can fix. For me is only an issue when exiting F14 missions. Just need to wait till DCS sort it out...Gary

  11. This problem for me happens with F14 tomcat but not with F18 hornet. Usually when exit F14 instant action mission
  12. yep is a bug that came with 2.5.6 update...this is a huge update with lots of changes so is understandable lots of bugs will come with it. happens with every exit of instant action game play. I play F14 so noticed it when exit game play.

  14. Hi I think this is just a new bug that needs sorting out down track ... like u after update to 2.5.6 Cage/Seam appears to not be functioning. Light on cockpit dashboard illuminates but no function. PLM still works though where Sidewinder head will slave to the radar pulse put out by PLM. Just have to wait for a fix.
  15. With SW missile I understand how use the SEAM LOCK mode so missile head will track target off the ADL. But cannot work out how to use PLM for single target tracking of target aircraft/missile so my SW is slaved to the radar to locate the enemy aircraft. Have made binding to my Thrustmaster throttle for both. I put the ADL crosshairs on target, select PLM and sometimes a diamond appears but at other times not. 1. What are the exact steps/conditions so PLM once selected works with diamond appearing ?? 2. When I select PLM I can hear the sound of a switch clicking within cockpit yet h
