Re: New system

In fact the cpu pulling out of the socket may well be the issue. A friend of mine had an issue where he would change the paste fort better temps constantly and pull the cpu from the socket. Even though he did that and reseated it, it failed to boot and setting went all over the place. I fixed it by...

Re: New system

So it happened again with the windows update that came through. Computer locked up, power button would not shut it off and then it would not restart. I moved the cooler block around a bit (pushed in on it really) and then it booted up but the led is back to just red. I want to pull the water block o...

Re: Conversion bracket

That looks almost exactly like one that came with one of my water coolers. If it is the same it twists on and holds very tight.

There should be a working link if anyone has better knowledge than I.

Re: New system

Odd, send the board over to me and I'll take a look. I got a couple of those boards in the closet that are brand new, so I got you covered. (unless it's a bad CPU) It's been working now. I haven't played with oc or lighting since it started to act good though. I will keep testing it out and see how...

Well had to lower to 3.50 in order to get cpuz benchmark to complete but it beat the threadripper 1900x and was a few points shy of the 2700x!

Re: New RTX cards - INSANE pricing!

So far they have been released at £1100 :shock: And people wonder why computer gaming has been on a decline....game console for cheaper than 1 video card......i wonder. I know the computer would have better graphics but damn I can't afford to buy a high ...

Re: New system

Looking good and can't wait to see some benchmarks at 4Ghz or whatever you get it up to. Do you still suggest doing the OC through BIOS or is it as good now a days to use a windows program to do it? Been a while since I oc'd as I did for a while on the 3770k but then just left it stock for everyday...

Re: New system

glad you got it up and running finally. as for the app in windows having more options than the bios, is beyond me seeing as the bios/motherboard is what is controlling/power the aura. oh well have fun ;) RIGHT!

New RTX cards - INSANE pricing!

2080ti - $1199 2080 $799 2070 $599 OUCH. I was hoping the new gen would come out and be lower cost to drive the current 10 cards down to reasonable levels. I was wrong. Do you guys/gals at LR have any definite specs/prices for the cards? Seems like the new cards are a good bit faster than this gener...

Re: New system

Redoing the entire thing right now. Took everything out and rebuilding after clearing cmos. Putting the modular psu in also.

You would love the 5 8tb I have in the nas :)

Re: New system

Couple pics while the led is glowing Nice rats nest of cables. Will swap the psu tomorrow. I think of the problem may be a dead cmos battery so the wife is bringing me one home when she gets off work. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180817/99c6fc409cdbd15230130aefe72a8a49.jpg https://uploads.tapa...

Have you tried removing your storage drives/optical drives and clearing the CMOS? Funny story...lol...I am looking through all my stuff for a clear cmos jumper as it didnt come with one.

Re: ESXI home lab-ish

I absolutely hate Plex. I have tried it multiple times and the transcoding is awful and seems to even do it on my gig network when it should not. I would love a nice media front end (back end? whichever) that would allow me to browse by cover art or search using multiple areas (name, genre, rating, ...

Back to the problems again. LED is off since the computer hangs on every restart. I have to throw the toggle on the PSU in order to get it off too as the power button wont do it...?? It will also take a minute or more to actually come on after I hit the power button. On the MB it glows red on the CP...

Re: New system

Been messing with BIOS and still cant change colors. It is just so goofy since when I first got it running (before the bios update) it worked. I had it blinking to music (really not synced up very well) and everything. I dunno what happened. I might try and redo the bios and see what happens. I did ...
