So, I've just built my PC, and here are the parts:
So I'm pretty sure I've set up everything correctly. The RAM sticks are glowing, the case fan is glowing, all the fans from GPU to CPU are all running. However, whenever I turn on my monitor, it keeps coming up with no signal. I've double-checked by replugging HDMI cables and its monitoring my laptop screen perfectly fine. I've also taken out the RAM sticks, plugged them in one by one, and tried placing them in separate slots. None of the parts are damaged at all, and everything is new.
Hey, I am a massive fan of your work, and I'm looking forward to my first build.
I'm worried about overheating and dust accumulation which could damage the build. Here I believe the ease of cleaning dust is my paramount concern while buying a case while still wanting excellent airflow. Having looked at the cases so far, I'm unsure which you would recommend for 1. Ease of cleaning and 2. Thermal performance.
I'm thinking of using a positive pressure high intake through filters and 6 Noctua fans 4 in 2 out (in on the front (3) and bottom (1) and out at the rear and top) to get rid of heat. This means I'll be needing to clean those intake filters regularly to stop any potential dust build-up. Can you recommend a case for me?
I also am a bit unsure about power supplies; I'd be looking at 1000W to overcompensate and keep the system as quiet as possible so the PSU fan doesn't ramp up too much. With the fan configuration described, would the PSU be pushing hot air back over the GPU and motherboard? Should I reconsider this part of the build?
I finally thought of duct taping the empty rear PCI extension covers at the back inside and out to stop dust from getting in. Is this wise? Hope to hear from you.
I need some help, please. I have an old ASUS Maximus IX Hero motherboard with PCI-E 3.0. Looking for an NVMe SSD upgrade as my current Hynix 256GB just doesn't cut it anymore.
I wanted to buy the Samsung 970 Pro 1TB (MZ-V7P1T0), one of the fastest PCI-E 3.0 SSDs, but the price is £219. I then looked at the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB (MZ-V8P1T0BW) for £189, but that is PCI-E 4.0. Is it worth getting the 980 Pro, or is it not backward compatible? Will it run as fast as a 970 Pro would, or would it be slower? Many thanks for your help!
I recently switched from console gaming to PC gaming. I am trying to get the best performance possible, so I'm experimenting with overclocking.
I recently bought some Corsair 4266MHz RAM and can't seem to get the XMP settings past 3800MHz without reverting to 2133MHz after booting Windows. I tried 1.45 volts at 4000MHz, and it still did not work. What do I get to do to get my money's worth and crank it to 4266?
I'm new to PC. I will be running triple 55in monitors at 1080p and 120Hz, and I want to have all the settings on high for iRacing.
What do I need to get? I don't want to over-buy but sure don't want to under-do it as well. I was looking at a Ryzen 9 5900 with an RTX 3090, but that's a lot of power lol; I'm disabled now, so this is my new hobby. I have been iRacing for about a year now. Thx for your time.
I would like to upgrade my home computer. It is a Lenovo IdeaCentre with an i7-3770 and 12GB of memory. Would a 10th Gen i7 be a noticeable improvement?
I use my computer to surf the internet, store pics, music, and keep financial documents and business forms. Would this be a beneficial upgrade for me?
What are your opinions on reusing my old PC parts to build a PC for my mom? She would like a desktop build for streaming meetings and presentations along with apps like MS Office.
I currently have an Intel Core i5 3570K, ASUS P8Z77-V motherboard, and 8GB of DDR3 memory. I am just wondering if it would be enough for some years to get by. Thanks!
I have an ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX motherboard and a GIGABYTE Radeon RX 570 Gaming 8G. Only three of the graphic card ports are working. Is there a setting problem, or does the system only support three monitors? My local shop says this is the case.
I wanted to know how to optimize my current laptop: ASUS TUF Gaming FX505, for video editing and photo editing software.
The main problem I face while using multiple editing software is that the laptop hangs, and then the application crashes. I could not find the option to switch to a studio driver in the GeForce experience application.
Laptop specs are ASUS TUF Gaming FX505 Intel Core i7 8750H processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.
I wondered which of these two laptops would be best for someone who likes to play MMORPG games. I am fairly new in looking into specs for PCs.
I play games like Fallout 76, which is the primary game that I play. Also, right now, they are the same price. If you guys have any insight on which would be better, that would be awesome. Thank you!
