  1. Past hour
  2. Unfortunately, there typically isn't any good way of reusing those screens. They tend to have completely custom pinouts and protocols and would basically require you to suss all that out and program an FPGA to drive the display.
  3. yes, for that usecase you will need two splitters, or at the very least two PWM sources
  4. Hello, I just bought new cpu,mbo and ram and assembled it along with my previous power supply and gpu. When I turned the pc on the rgb on the mbo,ram and cpu and all the fans were on but I had no signal on the monitor. Also,pc keept restarting(fans and rgb kept turning on and off) every 3-4 sec. I took my ram out and turned it on,it started restaring every 15 sec now,then I took the gpu out,same story. Then I took the gpu out and pc ran fine,not bootloops. I did manage to get into bios and version was 2.9 I think and when I tried to run win 10 of my ssd it got to the login screen and stayed there fot like half a sec and then restarted. Then I plugged in a usb with ubuntu on it,similar situation; it managed to get to the part where ubuntu starts loading and then it restarted again. That was yesterday,today nothing works and I can't get the picture. Same situation - when gpu is plugged in it restarts every 3-4 sec. I tested the gpu in the other pc and it works fine. Xmp is not enabled if thats important here. So I don't know what the problem is,is the power supply which works fine too on the other pc,or is it mbo or ram or cpu. I cleared cmos(removed battery),reinstalled cpu, checked all of the connections,there are no shorts because it did got to bios when it was in the case. I did not flash any bios because it us supposed to be 2nd gen ryzen ready out of the box. I wanted to try running the memtest86 but I cant get any signal on the screen so I cant check any error messages that appear. Also did check different memory slots and one ram stick at a time. Specs: Cpu: Ryzen 2700x Mbo: Asrock Steel Legend B450 Ram: Kingston HyperX Fury 3200 mhz 2x8gb Power supply: Thermaltake TR2 Bronze 450 W Gpu: Saphhire Radeon RX560 Would really appreciate any help.
  5. yeah i was asking bc both have diffrent max RPM and i want to run them at the same RPM so that my pc is quiet for that usecase i prop should get 2 splitter?
  6. True, that's why I'm primary looking for ways to reuse the screen. I hope that there are some, because it would be a shame to just get rid of it
  7. Secondary storage devices are non volatile memory so I refered to my HDD as secondary as that is non volatile, whereas primary is volatile and is memory such as RAM. But yes I agree that I need more RAM especially for games such as Rust or just for using Google Chrome. I just am a bit confused because the RAM stick said 2666MHz, is that something I should be worried about (should I get a higjer frequency or lower frequency?)

  9. no your computer will instantly explode /s yeah it's fine, assuming they're all PWM it will just control each of them to x% of their max rpm

    Stand Microphone

    Hello Guys, can you guys recommand any "stand microphone" (dunno if thats the right term) something like this: thats <55€~ and thats usable? and if possible has the opportunity to use an arm for it later? i just game a little, so its not for streaming and i dont use it that much would love it if i could easily just store it somewhere when i dont need it because i dont talk so much on pc these days what are you guys using? ty in advanced
  12. in 90% of cases it will work, sometimes at a lower spec but it will figure out a way to run dual channel if the memory chips are rated for the same speed and timings, regardless of vendor, it should actually run dual channel at full speed.
  13. Would be much cooler with 16 cores in it
  14. I just find it funny when people talk to me about my processor and say how I really should have gone with an 8 core and that the 9th Gen I5s are going to be obsolete in a year or two. And they talk with urgency in their voice, like the entire computer industry is going multicore and I'm going to be left in the dust unless I have at the very least an 8 core CPU to stay current with the times. This couldn't be farther from the truth. I literally used a Phenom II 960T processor, unlocked, into a six core Phenom II, Thuban, that runs 3.5GHz stock for the past 11 years. This CPU was a beast and still is a beast. Especially with the northbridge overclocked to 3000Mhz, it was a force to be reckoned with. I use my computer a lot - I'm on it most of the time, as the matter of fact. And I say this because I am someone who requires power and speed and substantial processing power. The worst thing is waiting for a slow computer to load. The Phenom II platform satisfied that need, when overclocked, in my case, to 3.8GHz across six cores, and then with the NB overclocked to 3000MHz, with 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM with CL7 timings, it was lighting quick, especially combined with an SSD drive. And I'm telling you, it served my needs WELL for the past decade. Literally. This is the first time I have upgraded CPUs in a decade. The reason I tell you this story is because marketing and product launches have a way of getting people to buy expensive new things. So we are conditioned, as Americans. to have the best, to buy the best and to stay up to date with the latest tech. Companies like Intel and AMD rely on consumers upgrading to their latest products to generate a large part of their income. I'm basically telling you that everything you've heard about computers needing more and more cores as technology progresses is just a farce. There is no real need for anything over 6 cores AT MOST. Literally, no games require 8 core CPUs. No programs, unless very, very specialized, require 8 cores. 8 Cores is just a sales gimmick, the probability of the average consumer needing an 8 core CPU is VERY, VERY low. This is very simple. It's like buying a new car every year. Sure, it's nice to have a backup camera and maybe some anti-theft tracking feature. But still, its just a car at the end of the day, and even a 15 year old car, if maintained can still be driven on the road without any problem. But these companies want and need our business - so they are constantly innovating and building new cars to attract new buyers so they can bank on it. And to be clear, the Phenom II chip wasn't limited in terms of processing power - it was fast and snappy, right up until the day I retired it. No, for me it was simply the lack of required instruction sets that I needed to run some specific software, so my hand was forced and I had to upgrade. And look I've been an AMD fan my entire life, but I chose a 9th Gen Intel chip over Ryzen for a number of reasons. Primarily it came down to memory and cache latency for me. Ryzen chips have one of the most pathetic IMCs (integrated memory controllers) in any CPU currently on the market. Would you believe me if I told you, AMD is using essentially what is the same IMC that you would find in a Bulldozer / Piledriver FX chip? Well it's true. They tuned it a bit and added DDR4 support, but other than that, it's an FX memory controller. AND IT WAS BAD BACK THEN AND IT"S BAD NOW. It's totally shocking to me that AMD couldn't come up from the ground up with a better solution. Because memory latency on the Ryzen platform is despicable! A stock system, take your standard Ryzen 3700X X8 CPU, for example, will have some of the worst memory latency out of any current CPU on the market, short of some budget mobile CPUs that are designed for laptops. I'm talking like average memory latency with state of the art, Ryzen system, can easily run 70-80ns in memory latency. These numbers in my book, in 2020, are unacceptable. You should be concerned when chip companies are "regressing" because the IMC on the Phenom II chip was better and had a lower latency right out of the gate. AMD coming out with something that performs worse than it's predecessor is bad business and really speaks to a lack of innovation on their part. But my point remains, AMD's latency numbers with Ryzen are abysmal! Because they are using an FX memory controller, which was bad when it came out, bad when you tried to overclock it, and still bad in Ryzen. Ryzen has had horrific memory problems and performance issues relating to the IMC. For example, it's not really worth it to run anything more than 3 733MHz memory on Ryzen because if you go any higher than that you drop down from a 1:1 ratio on the infinity fabric, thereby killing your memory throughput. In a perfect world AMD should be able to design an architecture that doesn't lose performance when you increase memory frequency. In fact, it should be the other way around. These oversights and miss-steps are simply too broad and too wide not to take seriously. This is why I went with Intel. Their chips are lighting quick with latencies, in some cases, HALF THE LATENCY of a comparable AMD system, they have a superb memory controller, mine is stable up to 4.9GHz, and memory throughput is dynamite. Not to mention the fact that Intel systems have far less compatibility issues with RAM than Ryzen. Ryzen is very finnicky about memory and very sensitive, and gains in the memory sub system are hard to come by. Think about this for a minute. My Phenom II chip, when tested for latency, pulls on average about a 49ns latency on the memory. Now even by today's standards, this is a pretty good number, and this means you are going to have a responsive and snappy system. But a stock Ryzen chip? You are looking at an easy 79 ns memory latency result. This is unacceptable to me. It just highlights some of the disconnect people have between hype and reality. Heck, you can game hard on an Intel Core i3-9100F quad core and it can perform nearly on par with the 9900K in terms of playability. I could blindfold you, sit you down at a computer, play a game and I seriously doubt you would ever be able to tell the difference in game play between a quad core 9100F and an 8 core 9900K. That's the Gods honest truth, and I will tell you right now, most people don't want to hear that.
  15. I was pointing at the Antec, not the SPC; some Antecs really aren't silent. I just checked the OV-power calculator, it heavily overstates my power-usage at load, it gives me almost 150% as much wattage as what I'd actually need when I would put everything - and I mean really everything - at 100% load. So I guess your peak load will be at around 400w in reality.
  16. You could mismatch any kit and still run dual channel, just be aware that you may be limited to running lower JEDEC specs (e.g. 2133MHz CL15) for stability's sake
  17. As long as the system is stable, then yes, you can run different brands in dual-channel. The claim that they need to be "specifically programmed to work together" is just plain bullshit.
  18. Should work fine, usually the motherboard will run at the speeds of the slower stick for compatibility
  19. and its not even guaranteed it will work out of the box. as i had that 'issue'.
  20. Yes, if you have the modules in the proper slots for dual channel, and the system is able to POST, it's running in dual channel. As far as your timings are concerned, the faster module in whatever respect will automatically back down to the slower module, including latency.
  21. When I bought my new HX750i (replace my previous Seasonic Focus Plus 650FX). Corsair website recommand me to use iCue. I downloaded it but this software isn't good because the informations are not complet. iCue can't read intensity informations, only voltage & wattage (any other softwares can to do it too). I uninstalled it and downloaded Corsair LINK software. Now, I have all informations from my new PSU I don't know why Corsair recommand to use iCue which isn't good for RMi / HXi / AXi.
  22. Hi, I heard in a video a while ago that to run memory in dual channel configuration we need a special kit which is specifically programmed to work with each other like hyper furry x etc. Few days ago I red Qoura & some reddit posts where argument was that you can run two different brands & speeds memory in dual channel configuration but that might cause system instability & crashes. Now I have installed 2 memory modules one is corsair ddr3 4GB 1600mhz & other is some unknown 1GB 1067mhz then I checked cpuz & in memory tab it said dual channel. so my question is if I install two different brands 8GB modules with same speed 1600mhz (not considering timing) & if system stable as well & cpuz says dual channel so am I really running in dual channel configuration? & if I am then is it as good as kit(same speeds & same timings)? I mean the whole concept is to use 2 64bit wide bus parallel.
  23. The reason for it not charging is typically because the battery is too worn out. My husband's Samsung-tablet didn't charge, either, and I fixed the issue simply by swapping in a new battery. Sounds like they broke something and salvaging it now would require replacing the whole motherboard.
  24. imo you're paying way too much on that board just for the convenience of 100% not having to flash a new BIOS.
