    Black screen when booting PC

    If it had been display not being connected properly or RAM issue, the motherboard would have given beeps to signify the error. You're telling that nothing is displayed. Check a few things: 1. Does the monitor show anything response like its power on LED turning off and then on showing a signal from the PC. 2. Did you reseat the CPU cooler? If yes, then reseat the CPU as well, might be that. 3. Try removing the CMOS battery. The coin cell on the motherboard keeps the computer's time running, remove it and then put in back again and then try powering on the system again. 4. If using dedicated graphics card, instead try using integrated graphics (if CPU is Intel) and connect to motherboard display out. Try these out and let me know. I'll be happy to help.

    Technically not true. EVGA released a Quad-SLI X58 Classified board, but as far as I can tell that was the only one!

    ASUS GX701, is it actually cooler?

    2080MQ is not the same with 2080N. The performance is just slightly better than 2060N.

    stick with 7. during windows xp's time when people tried running 3 gtx 8800's or 4 2900xts in crossfire x the systems were INCREDIBLY inefficient. The first two cards were loaded somewhat with the 3rd and 4th barely being used due to just poor software and hardware and lack of support. it was ironed out by the time the 780 and 7 rolled around so just use 7.

    I was originally going for an X58 build, but finding a Quad-SLI supporting board has proved to be essentially impossible so far.

    16k Resolution Gaming Rig.......

    Because that's a dead project that made no sense financially to anyone. So unless they get sponsors, it ain't "getting an upgrade" just for the sake of it.

    Media Keys Acting Weird

    It probably not recognizing Spotify as media player, so it control what it recognizes first. Maybe set Spotify as default music player?

    Quad-SLI XP Retro-Build - Help needed

    Aha ok thanks..., that's useful advice. Part of the reason for wanting SLI is to cater for my Ultrawide display which I believe the extra cards will help with. Going to Win7 is certainly an option though, especially if it makes it work!

    davinci resolve 16?

    If you want to go back, I have the Resolve 15 installer in my downloads folder, I can send you that!

    Quad-SLI XP Retro-Build - Help needed

    XP 64 bit only went up to SP2, since it's based on Windows Server 2003 64-bit. SP3 only exists for the 32-bit version. Support periods were identical, though. I doubt DX9 games can properly utilize even a single GTX780Ti. The 4960X also isn't the best CPU in terms of raw IPC one could use for this. I'd say the XP era ended around 2009, so I'd wager the best sensible XP gaming rig would be an i7-9xx for s1366 with triple channel DDR3 and SLI GTX280s. or go Quad 8800GTX or something, lol.

    Quad-SLI XP Retro-Build - Help needed

    i dont think what i was saying was getting across. A single 780 is going to play dx9 games just as well as 3 of them. there aren't really any dx9 games that will take advantage of 3 gpu's even from a resolution point as 3 gpu's will not combine their vram. The 780 far exceeds what the games are expecting already. the second might help but the 3rd will be doing almost nothing at all. If you want to run windows xp games (even in dx9 mode) I would suggest using windows 7 instead as it supports almost any program from xp without issue , even regular oldschool disk games. Otherwise , you'd essentially just be using xp to purposely make the system slower with absolutely no advantages over 7 , not even the UI as 7 can use the same older UI as well.

    Is someone trying to control my PC?

    If they are able to open webpages, they are not "trying", they already succeeded.
  18. No, I would not, because Linux still wouldn't have any advantage over any of my other operating systems. I don't change a running system.

    Is this PC any good?

    had a look through. another issue with the 9400f is limited memmory support which hits it in randomly games. unlike the 9400f the 2600/x doesnt have massive 0,1 lows that isnt related to the overall performance.

    PC won't boot when D.O.C.P. is on

    1.35 likely isn't enough voltage for those timings. Try running looser timings or upping the voltage to say, 1.4v or more. With Ryzen, the XMP profile really isn't stable on every CPU out of the box.

    Battlefield V High ping

    The ping represents distance between you and the server. You are connecting servers in certain region. Ping under 100ms is playable. It becomes only issue if everyone else has 50ms+ lower ping. You can't do much. Other than trying to find servers which are closer to you. Maybe eliminating anything that might stress your connection, like any download or video streaming. Though if you have 5mbps+ download speed those shouldn't matter.

    Will this fan fit/be enough?

    I think it will be enough for that cpu.

    Quad-SLI XP Retro-Build - Help needed

    Thanks, and I agree XP is potentially a hinderence to the hardware, but the other way of looking at it is that it should be the best XP can be... The whole point is to be retro. I'll probably end up having multiple boot environments anyway, but wanted to start with XP. DX9 and below is fine, as I'm looking to only use this machine for DX9 or older games.
