    • I need help building a pc. I was gonna buy a laptop to stream with my elgato requires atleast a i5 cpu I was gonna go past the recommendations and get something better. The laptops I was looking at are around 900. Pretty sure I can build a pc that's better for that price or am I wrong ???

  • Did you have the green startup screen problem . I received my reference card replacement and I still have the same issue . I have a Samsung 50 inch 4k smart TV and I am using hdmi cable to connect to the pc but I have a green screen every time I turn on the pc it will disappear after loading the windows . this is the only 4k display I had and I tried from 10$ to 55$ 2.1 hdmi cables but I am always having the same problem If I used my old 1080ti or rx580 they will work perfectly , I tried with couple old 1080p monitors and they worked fine but all this monitors have just display cable .

  • Here’a my rant re Corsair AX850i units. For the love of all that is holy avoid this particular PSU as it has a really super sensitive digital sensing stage. I’ve bought multiple units and I’ve had the relay clicking like mad with no POST. One unit totally blew its caps and let out the magic smoke. The surge ran through both the building breaker and my apartment breakers. Since then I’ve switched to EVGA P2 units and so far things have been good.

    Gabriel hauerwaasGabriel hauerwaas25 hari yang lalu
  • those phanteks psu's only work with their own cables as in yo dont get to connect any other cables. but since you tried it with their own cables that probably isn't the only problem. it actually has pretty clear warnings about it in their documentation too. it's because of the weirdness that the dual mobo connection brings.

Again 3 Days later, we tested the pc parts with my mainboard at my place. Everything Worked, even the his monitor. 1 Week later, we built his pc together and tested again, no video signal until i accidentdally swapped the monitor worked and the cause of that trouble.. It was his overpriced 95€ DP cable which wasn´t working

  • Ah was a different issue for you. My PC started to shut down and power on repeadetly. Infinite boot loop. But the sound he made was that "holding down the power button to force shut him off" sound. Problem was: I custom sleeved my cables a while ago. Using a 380T all cables are always too long. Now the 24pin mobo cable wasn't connecting properly to the psu. That caused all of this. But until I found out... Oh I tell ya.

  • It's kind of fun and sad at the same time to see your first world country problems LOL in my case I live in Mexico and I'm having kind of a hassle with Asus because I bought a monitor last year (Sept 2020) this monitor VG35V cost about +5 months of curently minimun wage in México and if in my case you are the father of 3 daughters can Imagine the effort you have to made to been able to afford such mentioned monitor, well to make this short, the monitor has about 10 dead pixels (white) so obviously I pretend to RMA it to Asus but like I already said I live in Mexico and it appears that Asus just don't give a shit about Mexican customers and ask me so send it to the vendor where I purshased it in the first place, the vendor ask me to send it to them and wait about 15 days meanwhile thet send it to their provider and see if the defect it's real (I have already send photos of the issue), the monitor it's a big fella and obviously the cost of send it to them is considerably but the most important thing to me is that I will have to wait 15+ daysto get an answer and answer no even a monitor back because the vendor don't have in stock a same model and brand monitor, so they IF applicable will give me a credit note to select another currently stocked monitor, that I choose, the monitor was bought before and considerably increase in the cost of the dollar SO in actual money I will get a credit of that amount, amount such as today will get me an inferior monitor in all aspects. Why Asus don't get it's sh**t together and send me a same model monitor so when I get it can send to them the faulty one?, why only in USA why the Mexican and latinoamerican market don't worth a shit to them even considering all the sacrifices we must make to buy such a local expensive parts?. I hope that you can make this public and if you can and will contact asus about this case. Appreciate it in advance! (And as every body says "Sorry about my english it's not my primary language")

  • nice to see at least someone can build a system during this supply shortage/scalping era. I've been wanting to downsize for my 2021 rig with a SFF build in an Ncase M1 - planned for it to be my first AMD CPU personal rig with a 5950x, and an Asus TUF 3090 since they apparently fit this case (founders card is too large) but neither of them exist. So here I sit with the case, an EKWB 240mm AIO and one Noctua NF-A12x25 fan for it (the pwm 12v version has been sold out on Amazon for a while now).

  • Hmmm...a buddy of mine with a Prime Gold 1050W Seasonic has been having issues with his build that's third gen Ryzen 7, meanwhile my Prime Gold 1200W has been chugging away in my overclocked Intel build, and I stress tested that PSU before selling it to him so I have my doubts that it's failing (and his build is clean so no dust issues). I had similar issues with AMD boards not liking certain fully working PSUs back in the Bulldozer would be neat to understand why that's happening.
