it has been one of the fastest adopted OSs they have released. And its damn good. It has its fair share of issues like any other OS but i have had no complaints at all. It boots in seconds, yes SSD + win 10 is about 7 seconds cold boot to desktop (and you can launch an app at that point, not still wait)

Whats wrong with bing? (besides the name! lol) - i use it most of the time simply because they PAY you. Points for using it gets you free stuff. I have 200GB of cloud (oneDrive) until 2018 for free.

no it takes a while. They have to find all the people posting, then sort through and pull out the actual active people (not just the ones that posted a few times, or just a few words) THEN toss in a hat a pull the winner

I am assuming you have the latest drivers...

Have you tried it in other games?

Mantle on/off?

did this PC have the nvidia drivers in it and have you done a full driver wipe?

I would 100% return this and instead pick up a 390. Not only will it run cooler and quieter, but its also DX12 ready. Its the same price or cheaper.

I have an XFX R9 390 and its quiet as could be and have zero issues with any games so far.. I did have a 270 in it before and could run BF4 fine with that card (vsync on)
