  1. I'm in it for about 1300 the only parts I'm reusing are the H60 cooler and PSU. I haven't build a new PC in forever and a looking to any good guides on the hardware and software install. I'm not sure if I will need to do anything with the BOIS and how to go about updating it. my plan is to install all hardware fire it up and install windows 10, check for updates, then install any drivers.
  2. I'm hoping to not have to OC. But ill like to have the option if I need it down the line
  3. Thanks guys. I'm hoping to stay away from over clocking as along as possible. Ideally I would just be happy with a processor that had enough stock speed to do the job. I don't have a ton of add ons so I think I'll be ok without OC. I was hoping to save some money and downgrade the processor but it's probably best to just build high now and let the system be good for several years. I'll check out the cooling unit mentioned. I was only planning on using the h60 because I already had it. Thanks again, Kevin O
  4. Looking to order the following for a new build. Any comments would be appreciated.

Considering an i5 (Intel Core I5-6600K 3.50 GHz, 6 M Processor Cache 6 for LGA 1151 $245) Not sure if the i7 is worth the extra $100. I was also curious what everyone thinks about the z170pro vs different 170 models I was originally looking at the ASUS z97 but from what I have seen so far it looks like it's best to upgrade to the newer tech. I wanted the ability to add another video card if I want to go for triple monitors. Ideally I would like to go the next 3-5 years without having to do any major updates Again, I am not super techy but would appreciate any tips or tweaks to help give me the most hassle free system. I intend to used windows 10 as well.

    PMDG 777 300 L Engine Bleed Fail

    It stays at ground idle. I don't have it up right now so I don't have the exact value but somewhere in the low 20s I believe. The N1 indicator shows that I am advancing the throttle but the engine remains at idle. I have had this problem several times. I re started fsx and it loaded with the engines running as they should be. when I have more time will try to do a full shut down and see if I can do a full restart. I also had been loading the default panel states and maybe there was an issue there. thanks for the quick reply

    PMDG 777 300 L Engine Bleed Fail

    Hi all, I have been having an on going problem with the 773. After I start the engines and go to taxi only the right engine is applying thrust. The left engine appears to have properly started and is showing that I am signaling for thrust but it wont apply any. I noticed that the left engine bleed button is signaled to be ON but illuminated OFF in amber. After reading the manuals I only found that two things could cause this. Either I pushed the button to OFF or a system fault. I have tried the start up several different times, following the published procedures, and still not luck fixing it. Can anyone tell me what the manuals could mean by system fault? I don't understand why from cold and dark, following the procedure, this would continually happen. --Kevin

    PMDG use with FS Passengers

    I had no luck with UIautomationcore, I tried the Vista version and also the latest version of the dll and they both acted the same. BUT!!!! I did remove the missionpanel.cfg file and I haven't had a crash since. I have done a few test flights with the MD11 & 777 and not had any issues. I'm not sure why the missionpanel.cfg file would affect it but it seems to be the cause.

    PMDG use with FS Passengers

    I have windows 8.1 should I still use the vista version? I will also try a clean config and see what happens. I used to get stack hash ctd's but none lately. I'll keep trying. I feel like I just have a ghost in my system. I'm hoping someday soon I can do a full rebuild and not have any gremlins. Kevin

    PMDG use with FS Passengers

    another update... I did some test flights and had mixed luck Removed UIAutomationcore.dll, disabled failures in FSP, and used PMDG for fuel & weights KBOS-KEWR B777, Flight fine, did have a joystick failure but that's a different prob KEWR-PHNL B777, Flight ok, used 16x time compression to test stability and no probs KEWR-KLAX MD11, App Crash, FSCopilot, removed FS Inn & copilot (was not on vatsim) KEWR-KLAX B777, Sim crashed, no event listed in App crash viewer KEWR-KLAX MD11, Sim crashed, '' KEWR-KLAX MD11, Re installed FSinn and copilot before flight, APP Crash FSUIPC4 blamed I would get App crashed even before FSinn & Copilot was ever installed. The fault module was almost always listed as a stack_hash, one time it was MSVCR80.dll . Not sure what that means. I added UIAutomationcore.dll back to the FSX folder and no changes. Again these problems only happen with FSP. At a loss for tonight. A restart and some sleep for me and my PC and more test flights tomorrow. Any other ideas or comments are welcome and appreciated. Thanks, Kevin

    PMDG use with FS Passengers

    Quick update. I have removed UIAutomationcore.dll from my FSX folder and disabled failures in FSP. I just did a quick 1 hour test flight with the 777 and no problems. I am going to do some more tests and will report back!
  11. Does anyone use FS passengers with the PMDG 747, 777, or MD11? My FSP will only work with the 747. When ever I try to use FS Passengers with the 777 or MD11 my sim crashes, usually before I even make it to TOC. I have tried disabling FSP from controlling the payload but it has no effect. Has anyone else had any issues using FSP with PMDG? Any help or info would be appreciated. Kevin
