In the middle of gaming, Nikki's (my girlfriend/fiance) machine looked like it took a poop on me. So I thought it was just a really bad derp at first, so I restarted it... it was getting power, but the monitor received no signal feed. Then every time I tried to restart the system it would do something else really bizarre. TLR, I tested out every single other piece of hardware in MY computer... it worked just fine... I even took the steps of BUYING another motherboard AND CPU just to eliminate those as a fluke possibility... unplugged the NZXT Hue that she just got... ... ...
... PC boots up just fine. ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?!? LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOL
Bright side: I now have my test bed AND I found a 240GB SSD that had JUST gone on sale today for 100 bucks at Tigerdirect (Kingston V300) AND got a brand new FX-8350 for 30 bucks off.
Now ALL of the drinking shall commence
