    Anyone with Asus motherboard bios 2301 (model technically shouldn't matter) having a dual starting/rebooting issue?

    Well I finally discovered why 2201 wasn't Win 11 ready. For some reason that bios was changing the OS Type under secure boot to Other OS instead of Windows UEFI mode. Changing it to UEFI now shows it as Win 11 ready as to 2301 bios screw it! Asus has problems with it and I'm not going down that...

    Anyone with Asus motherboard bios 2301 (model technically shouldn't matter) having a dual starting/rebooting issue?

    I mean Asus "claims" the change from 2201 to 2301 is that the TPM is activated by default there are no other changes in the bios so they say. So for it to boot and restart normally on 2201 then do this double start bit with 2301 leads me to believe there is something else in this bios then just...

    Anyone with Asus motherboard bios 2301 (model technically shouldn't matter) having a dual starting/rebooting issue?

    I've got a Z490-I that acted normal on bios 2201. I installed 2301 (which all this is supposed to change is have the TPM crap setup on default in bios for Win 11) Ever since this bios the computer does what seems like a dual start both from cold booting and from a restart. IE it acts like when...

    APC UPS Hot-swap replacement batteries to hot-swap or not?

    Well the instructions on their page shows to lay it on the side, slide the bottom cover off, grab the two tabs on the old battery and pull it out. Reverse for replacement install. Seems simple enough I'm just a bit iffy on doing this while plugged in and having powered on stuff connected to it. LOL

    APC UPS Hot-swap replacement batteries to hot-swap or not?

    So my 1000G started screaming yesterday to replace the battery. Have one due out for delivery today and they advertise it as hot-swappable with no down time but is this really advisable? I see people in reviews talk about charging theirs for 48 hours with nothing connected to the UPS. If that...

    RTX 3080 FTW3 EK Vector Waterblock Install & Results

    Any chance of a photo of the card/block at the back of the inside of the case near the pci slots to show how far down the block comes into the second pci slot space? Wondering if the EK block hangs lower then the HC blocks. Don't really want to change my 280GTS for a XT45 due to fitting...
