NineBall Versus the Tricky Socket

While I was on the phone with Tech Support last night with Jetway, I used a different screwdriver with more torque than my normal screwdriver when tightening the socket to lock in the CPU and heard a click. The next thing I knew, my motherboard worked. In that moment I realized the awful truth about what it means to epically Fail. 1 RMA, 2 CPUs and several months later I found out that I simply had not turned the screw on the socket far enough when seating my CPU. Per Tech instructions I always made sure that I turned the screw 180 degrees until the socket firmly held the CPU in place. I guess they left out the part where there should have been a distinct clicking sound when it actually locked (I'm used to clamp-type sockets).

While I'm excited at having my current setup working, I was really looking forward to getting that SuperMicro board. If I were starting all over again, that is what I would likely do although Jetway has been pretty good throughout all of this.

  1. The brand has all the favored casino games in store, prepared to satisfy the expectations of both {the new|the brand new} and skilled players. Participants on this EEG experiment played a simple betting game and then acquired or lost small quantities of cash 온라인카지노 based mostly on the accuracy of their bets. Each trial was introduced very rapidly; as for single-unit recording, the temporal decision of this method allows individuation of the responses from trial to trial. The researchers combined information from many trials to generate ERP components that had been time-locked to the monetary suggestions. By doing so, the oscillatory EEG sign averages out, as seen in the flat baseline in the course of the pre-feedback period. They found that monetary losses evoked a bigger adverse ERP response, comparability with} monetary positive aspects, inside 250ms of suggestions delivery.
