Windows 8 would mess up and the computer would restart. not find a OS and ask for DVD. Solution was to power down and it would start normally. Then it finally quit.
So instead of blaming Windows 8, I think I have a hardware issue. I am using a SSD so not much to fail there. I am thinking since this happened a few times and it did not really post the MB Splash screen that it's the Mobo. (Gigabyte 990FX UD7), but I have also had a failure like this many moons ago with a CPU. (This one is a FX-4170)
I will eventually trouble shoot everything, but for now I want my main machine Running!
I am going to go with another board (ASRock 990FX Fata1ty), some new hi speed DDR3, and Maybe a AMD 8350 CPU
I guess I do not see what why or how a 8 core CPU can be useful, but I feel a need to be a little modern.
I have a 1090T 6 core that never hurt me, but never warmed my heart either. That is why I have a bit of reluctance to go 8 core and why I went 4 core the last time (Cheaper and faster)
My question seems to be "Why 8 Core ?"
PS Sorry Intel Lovers, I have a Feud with the company and won't buy their product.
