ASUS Maximus VIII Motherboard Power Up Test

Posted by R Gilbert on February 29, 2016

I finally got up the nerve to test out the new ASUS Maximus VIII HERO Motherboard, it powered up just fine and I took the opportunity to update the Bios.  The10371522_10153878977851900_1914384336088927197_n Corsair Hydro H105 140mm liquid cooling system kept the Skylake 3.50 GHz at a cool 29.9 degree’s Celsius.   So all and all a very good first time power up, especially with the extremely limited space I was obliged to have to work in. All I’m doing now is waiting to order the Corsair Graphite 760t tower to transfer everything into it and have it up and running.  I haven’t tested out the OC Panel yet, as I’m waiting until I can transfer everything into the tower and can secure the OC Panel into a more permanent drive bay.  Not sure if I really want to go with the ROG Front Bast Display, since I’m not into the overclocking thing.  Nice to know that option is always available to me if I should decide to fill two drive bays.  And an update on the tower, I have this one on order and it should arrive by Thursday or Friday, Saturday by the latest.  The Corsair Graphite 760t Tower Case (pictured on the right) came in on Wednesday  and I spent most of Friday afternoon installing all of the really tricky hardware.  As I feared the H105 water pump was the hardest of all to install and secure, the 760t does accept the 140mm Corsair Hydro liquid cooling system, securing the radiator wasn’t the problem.  The problem was in securing the water pump onto the CPU, after that was taken care of my computer tech buddy in Louisiana informed me “yes it can be a bit tricky”.  Most everything is now installed and it’s just a matter of hooking up all of the nit picking stuff. I just hope everything powers up and run’s the way it’s supposed to, I have very serious doubts about this build.  Powered up the Maximus HERO Friday evening and everything powered up as it should have, the O C Front Panel gave a very good CPU Temp readout of 25.0 degrees Celsius, which is around 77 degree’s Fahrenheit.  Still haven’t installed the operating system on it, but that’s one of the easy parts.  All of the tricky and hard parts of the build are now finished, just hope it will hold up as long as my P8Z68VPRO has over the years.  The Z68VPRO has been a years long tried and true rock solid performer all the way through.  I think I’ll ship the Maximus back to my niece just to get it out of the way.  March 16, 2016 UPDATE:  Sad to say it however I had to RMA the Maximus VIII HERO motherboard because the 4th memory slot tested bad, and if I ever build another computer I sure as hell will not be buying the Corsair Graphite 760t tower case. Damned thing is the most difficult tower case I’ve ever had to work with. Cable routing and management is an outright real bitch to work with.  Not only was the board a bitch to install but the reverse was also true when I pulled the board out of the tower.  Thinking the worst was past after I removed the CPU and put it back into it’s protective plastic holder, when I packed the HERO, it was a knock down drag out fight to do it, never since I first began working with computers in the early 1980’s have I ran into a computer build that was so fraking difficult to work with.  Apparently ASUS has manage to find a way to renege on the warranty by claiming the CPU pins are bent, which aren’t covered under the warranty and charging the customer for whatever it cost to repair what is really wrong with the board, outright cheat skates if you ask me.  Perhaps in the future a company will come along that produces great gaming motherboards and really does stand behind the warranty on the board.  ASUS was unable to repair the damage and sent me a brand new HERO motherboard, which I installed, hooked everything back up and the board powered without any trouble and recognized all 16 gigs of RAM installed as well as the Skylake 3.50 GHz CPU .  I chose optimized defaults instead of attempting to do any overclocking.  Sunday I packed the whole thing back into the corsair 760t box with the original packing and shipped the whole affair to my niece in the haters state, and as far as I’m concerned that’s one computer build that’s completed and finished.

Just As It Was In New Orleans So It Is Here:

The ER at the VA hospital is so far out neither of the ambulance services will even think of transporting me and I sure as hell do not have any desire to travel by transient at night or to spend the entire night in the lobby waiting to see a doctor the next morning.  None the less just like it was in New Orleans my claims for Service connected disability are once again being held hostage and dissected three ways from Sunday until the VA here in Atlanta can find a way to deny them, you VA doctors are once again refusing to declare PTSD I suppose its thought of as a curse word to VA doctors, fortunately I have an attorney working for me this time around. I further noticed while in New Orleans any veteran that made it a point to hang around me had his claims awarded in a few short weeks or months while mine were shuttled back to the very bottom. Hence the reason for my withdrawal from veterans, I refuse to be a personal lodestone, for their troubles financial or otherwise.

The sailor who lied and received a hundred thousand dollars from the VA lived right across the lawn from me, and I know almost everyone had to have heard about that one on the news. As always claims that were filed long after mine, were also awarded in a few short weeks or months. I for one sure as hell do not appreciate being a personal lodestone for veterans (and its happened way to many limes in the past to be mere coincidence, veterans who were once soldiers and caused as much trauma as the military and Vietnam put together) to have their claims awarded while my lot stay’s the same and I remain in poverty. That shit simply isn’t going to cut it anymore. Unfortunately openly gay people are not very well received through the VA, veterans or employees and probably never will be.  It happened in New Orleans because of God Damned cowards from the haters of Arkansas and those bastards are once again doing it in my present location.  Well just when are those God Damned Bastards going to be dragged into the public spotlight and their interference finally brought to a stop.  No one should have to live their entire life under hate and control of outright God Damned scum sucking closet queer cowards.

While I was on active duty at Ft. Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, Aviation Mechanic (late Nov 1967 to on/about Sept 1968) soldiers made it damned clear to me I was nothing more than a dud and was merely tolerated only because the UCMJ demanded they do so. My gold was an honorable discharge at all cost, looking back now I firmly believe I woij1d have stated homosexual tendencies’. And you know what, the honorable discharge wasn’t even worth the cost now seeing the former life & health its cost me, although I doubt if even homosexual tendencies would have kept me out of the military. Damned shame Mr. Britton you & your people can’t or won’t help me out with the service connected claims award, rest assured it is badly needed a simple statement to my attorney that PTSD is a strong contributing factor would suffice, although I’ll not beg for crumbs from anyone.  By they way on my last visit with Dr. Prasad at the VA mental health clinic on 250 N. Arcadia Ave. I was obliged to remain until around 6:00 PM following my appointment, and those security personal watched me continuously like nervous ticked off buzzards and made it damned clear they were uptight and wanted me out of there ASAP or five minutes ago and because my ride was late in picking me up. I can promise their actions mostly assuredly did not make my evening go any better.

My sleeping rhythms completely backward to those of normal people are the same as those of Count Dracula, wide awake all night and sleeping all day long, and the only thing I can feel in this God Damned is nothing a fucking evil old will.  Forgot to mention when you go to the Atlanta VA Medial Center ER at night, don’t forget your picnic basket, pillow and blanket you’ll be sleeping there all night.

VA Claims Are Being Held Hostage In Atlanta.

Posted by R Gilbert on January 17, 2016

My claims for Service Connected Disability are be held hostage in the same way it was in New Orleans, while other veterans had their claims awarded, some who filed long after mine was filed. The truth is you buffoons never had any intention of awarding any kind of Service Connected claims. The fact is those rotten buffoons never had any intention of awarding any kind of claims. My non-service connected claim by all rights should have been retroactive to when it was wrongly terminated on June 1982. However those buffoons in the VA went out of their way to make it the lowest possible rating they could give it.

Those corrupted Jackass bastards in the North Little Rock VA Regional made sure my younger brother didn’t get compensation until he was laying on his deathbed. Then those greedy VA Klan and hate group controlled VA Egor’s from Frankenstein’s laboratory denied him the 250 dollar burial allowance. That’s just how low and disgraceful The Department Of Veterans Affairs is.

I’m wondering if those buffoons here in Atlanta are going to pull the same shit on me, those Neanderthal Buffoons in North Little Rock pulled on my younger brother. That is string me out until I’m on my deathbed, deny it and then deny me the 250 dollar burial allowance as well. Because its giving every indication that’s the way its going to be. The certainly have every kind of medical evidence to make a decision and even then those people will make the lowest possible rating they can legally get away with, probably no higher than 10 or 15%.

The lying slut bitch closet queer coward out of Arkansas who’s been drawing compensation under my name & file number isn’t about to give an inch. Certainly not on VA compensation it would take away to much of his fraking power and to much fraking money not coming into his pocket from the VA. Naturally I don’t expect those Atlanta VA Jackass’s to admit that, however there is to much big power involved in these claims (lying, thieving cowards) and most all of it is all out corrupted power, money and contacts under the table and through the FBI, The Postal Service in the diseased ridden living graveyard and The Department Of Veterans Affairs itself most assuredly through The North Little Rock VA Regional Office.  The lying slut bitch closet queer coward has followed me to my present location or sent one of his flunky’s, and is now doing his best to cause trouble for me here,  Being locked in poverty however,  I haven’t the means or resources to discovery who he is and shut his ass down.  In the mean time I’m written up as delusional or psychotic by my VA shrink and the slut bitch closet queer coward continues to get away with his underhanded under the table dirty business and its business as usual for him.  Well all things do end eventually as will his free ride and not even he has the power to make it last forever, all he can do is continue to cause his hell from behind the scenes undercover from his darkened closet and make it feel and seem like forever.

VA’s New Paperless Claim System Has Nearly Doubled in Costs

Posted by R Gilbert on January 14, 2016

The agency’s deputy IG told lawmakers the billion-dollar (and counting) system may not be worth the money.


The Department of Veterans Affairs may finally have good news to share, but lawmakers are balking at the price tag.

Jack Moore is Nextgov’s news editor. Full Bio

Total costs for a digital system used to process veterans’ disability claims that officials say has been key to slashing a massive VA backlog are nearly double the initial estimates.

And VA, which has continued to make upgrades to the system under an “agile” software development methodology, still can’t say how much the system will end up costing, according to auditors.

VA has spent more than $1 billion developing and maintaining the Veterans Benefits Management System, or VBMS, since 2009. The agency has requested an additional $290 million this year for continued tweaks to the system, which was initially projected to cost $579 million.

Intel Core i5-6600K Skylake Processor 3.5GHz 8.0GT/s 6MB LGA 1151 CPU w/o Fan, Retail

Posted by R Gilbert on January 1, 2016

Ordered the new CPU the Intel Core i5-6600K Skylake Processor 3.50GHz for the Maximus VIII Hero LGA 1151 Intel Z170 Motherboard this morning. Chomping at the bits toI5-6600KBX_LG install it and test out the new Motherboard.  This CPU comes without the Fan, bear that in mind when ordering and you will need to purchase an aftermarket  heatsink. This wasn’t a problem for me as a friend had already shipped the Corsair Hydro 140mm liquid cooling system to me for this particular  build.  I ordered this one from at 259.95, SupperBiiz has now rised their price tag up to 269.99 and free shipping and still at a substantially lower price tag over NewEgg’s price tag of 279.99   Not even sure I want to even mess with the H105, with my hands as nervous as they’ve become.

P_setting_000_1_90_end_500.pngI can’t speak with any experience on how this board is going to perform however this is the current motherboard I recently purchased from Maximus VIII HERO Z170 although I read some very positive reviews and very few cons from those who have completed a build using the Maximus VIII HERO Z170.  I will update this article after I have completed the computer build. I plan on installing the Corsair H105 liquid cooling system for the Skylark Intel i5 CPU people this CPU is selling out faster than pancakes coming through The International House Of Pancakes.  Included in the build will also be the ROG O C Panel and completing the build with the Windows 7 64 bit operating system, as I have no intention of going any where’s near Windows 10, to many bad reviews about that one.  Although at this point I haven’t decided which brand of RAM to use, I’m seriously considering Ripjaw or Trident, finally decided to go with Corsair Vengeance RAM.

More ripoff reporting time.  Ordered this Hamilton Beach Wide Mouth 14 cup blender model 70505.  Plugged it in and nothing happened after contactingk2-_c040a864-6a53-4a86-9e87-b46900f507c5.v1 Hamilton Beach Support they sent me a brand new one and imagine my complete surprise when I plugged it up and guess what, you got it same old problem.  Hamilton Beach products obviously are a complete waste of time and money.  Stick with Black & Decker or the more expensive Kitchen Aid kitchen appliances.

msa-272x200Rip Off Artists

I purchased the msa 30x for my wife who is hard of hearing and thought the thing would help her watch and hear television better, i sent off for the thing, and it wasn’t helping her so we shipped it back, i had the tracking number from the post office and it showed they received the product i just wanted my refund.

It has been over 4 months and still no refund, i sent them a hand written letter stating i sent the product back had proof they received it and still no refund.

Read The Full Complaint At

On a personal note:  I had considered ordering a pair of these myself, that is until I did some research for any consumer complaints.  Not only did I find one which I’m including in here, I found several more.  This is another one of those television ripoff products.  Always research consumer complaints first before giving your credit card info, when thinking about ordering one of those so call to good to be true deals from television.  If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is to good to be true.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking

My current system running 16 gig’s of Corsair RAM

I ordered this copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, from eBay about four or five months ago. To say the least it feels weird as hell talking into my computer. As far as Dragon NaturallySpeaking doing what the commercials say it will do they are right on NaturallySpeaking does precisely what the commentators say it does. In fact I’m using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to dictate this short review. I’ve only learned a very short list of the commands that can be given in NaturallySpeaking. For a CEO I suppose this would be a dream come true for dictating memos, and emails. Speed depends on the power of the computer, 1 GB of RAM is required although greater than that is highly recommended. I’m running 16 GB’s of RAM with an Intel dual core i5 CPU and I still can’t tell any difference in speed.  Although it’s true some words have to be added to Dragon’s vocabulary, Dragon contains a huge vocabulary of words and spelling errors and few to none existent.  As some of you have already read the program does make a few mistake, the above word four was typed (for) wish I could say the program produces error free documents, truth is however the program has to be trained and still doesn’t recognize sound a like words..

The Diseased Ridden Living Graveyard Makes 10 Worst Of The Worst Cities To Live In List:

Posted by R Gilbert on July 23, 2015

Morrilton, The Diseased Ridden Living Graveyard.

Morrilton, The Diseased Ridden Living Graveyard.

Arkansas is known as the “Natural State”, and it’s often easy to see why: there’s an absolute abundance of natural scenic beauty, clear lakes and streams, and fascinating wildlife. But, unfortunately, there are some cities and towns that are better places to live in Arkansas than others. Using scientific data, we’ve compiled a list of the worst places to live in Arkansas.  These are the 10 worst places you don’t want to end up living in for reasons like high crime and unemployment rates, along with lack of access to quality education.  Here are the worst of the worst in Arkansas:

On a personal note: Something I’ve known since returning from the military in 1969, so this shit comes as old news to me. City government and local law enforcement carry out a great deal of the true crimes. When those in the “Inner Circle” in the Court House say jump! Attorneys, those in the Sheriffs Office, local police and police chief and city planners say “How High”. This one city has destroyed, & stolen more dreams and ruined more lives than I even care to try and put a number to. I call it the sister city to Pine Bluff also referred to by some as “Crime Bluff”. The survey also forgot to add lack of good Health Care, the local hospital is little more than a Band-Aid Station even though it loosely calls itself a “Trauma Center”, Yeah right if you weren’t traumatized before gong into it you would be after coming out of it. Use the hospital in Conway (Conway Regional) heading east of the living graveyard, at least you can expect to get treated with respect and decent helpful doctors and staff and receive good healthcare. I was ecstatically utterly overjoyed to learn this when it was brought to my attention. Now maybe tons of outsiders in the haters state will know what I’ve know for decades and what I and my family had to put up with since the mid 1950’s. It’s like driving off into a cesspool of quicksand that makes it almost impossible to ever become free of, and all it does is suck you further and further down, deeper and deeper as it slowly sucks all of the life, all of the hope, all of the joy away, and replaces it with fear, depression, sickness and total despair.
