Ok. I was hoping I could salvage my Aurora R3, but I think I'll need to scrap it.
What is most irritating is that my R3 works perfectly for my purposes...until I need to install the monthly Windows update. And then that becomes a multiday operation involving dozens (sometimes hundreds) of bluescreens/lockups/restarts until the update magically works.
my MOBO seems to be dying and I'd hate to part ways with the beefy i7 my R4 came with but I may be doing the same. Can't afford a top of the line rig so I'm hoping I can fix the R4 and upgrade whats inside or sell the components individually... Can't ship that 45 lb case
