not quite sure whats up here. heard of power issues with these, but c'mon man. what would cause a vid card to up the v on my cpu?
also, in case anyone out there is also wondering, its a fresh install of windows 10, 48hrs old, on 320g wd standard drive, and i uninstalled the 6970 drivers before powering down. meticulously checked all mobo connections. not sure what else to do but try again with replacement.

Other Thoughts: ok now this is truly making my wasted day here, when i went to submit this review it got refused because neweg deemed 3 characters in the mobo description as obscene. when it is directly copied/ pasted from this site. a five five. sorry i guess ill reword that for sensitivity.

4 out of 5 eggs better than i was hoping 01/23/2014

This review is from: Roku 3 HD 1080p Streaming Digital Media Player

Pros: bought this to stream content from my pc to a tv about 20 feet away using plex. im really pleased. plex is awesome, all my movies and tv can be streamed in 720p. the remote is nice. huge selection of roku channels. and the box is pretty quick and responive.

Cons: 720p only. ive tried 1080p, and it looks worse. and i have a pretty sweet pc, it could definitely handle on-the-fly transcoding. and its a wired gigabit connection to the router. not too big of a deal, 95% of my vid library is 720p anyway. also plex+roku is 2-channel stereo. also not a big deal for my setup right now. all of these cons may disappear with firmware updates(?).

Other Thoughts: one thing to note, with plex+roku, you have to remux, rename, and re-organize your library, so it all sycs up right, none of which ive found difficult or too tedious to be worth it. with xmedia recode(free,amazing), i can remux a .mkv movie in about 1-2min(using 'copy' instead of 'convert' in the video tab). and a season of 26 hr.-long episodes of 720p tv takes about 40-60min. dont expect the ultimate home theater experience, but if you just want to stream your vids to a seperate tv, im finding this works very well.
