    GPU Sporadically Doesn't Work; Fan at 100%

    I've already tried it in a separate PC. No luck.
  2. Hey there. I've got a Galax 650ti Boost thats been in my dads rig the last few years and is now giving me trouble. About 70% of the time when booting the machine you'll hear the GPU fan ramp up to 100% and no video will be outputted. On my dads rig the motherboard will beep 5 times (GPU error) but on one of my rigs it appears that Windows boots successfully but without video. My dad does photo editing in both Lightroom and sometimes Photoshop. The card is rarely under a heavy load and temps stay low. I'm currently stressing it in my own rig to see if it crashes but it hasn't done so yet and temps aren't exceeding 65c. What could be the issue here? I've taken the card apart and haven't seen any corrosion or really anything out of the ordinary except for dried thermal paste (which has now been replaced). Thanks in advance.
  3. All chips overclock different so it really comes down to voltage. If you're fortunate, you won't need to increase voltage much to reach the speeds you desire. Frequency has very little impact on temperatures, it's voltage that makes the difference. Bump your clockspeed up in 100mhz increments, stress test, monitor temps, and increase voltage when necessary. I wouldn't go above 80c.
  4. I don't have much skill doing this type of repair but I'd like to get into it. Do you know of any videos that do this type of repair?
  5. Damn. Unfortunately the router is quite old so getting a replacement is out of the picture. I've got another of the same model already but I was hoping to fix this one just to have it around.
  6. Hey there fellas. I've got an old Netgear Nighthawk R7000 that experienced an ethernet surge a while back rendering it mostly useless. Wireless connections still work, as do wired, but it's unable to receive a connection through the incoming ethernet port. I forgot all about the damn thing until today and started pondering ideas to fix it. What about a USB to ethernet adapter? The router has a front USB 3.0 port so it could potentially be possible, but I'm not sure that the router would recognize it. Has anyone tried this? Thanks in advance!

    Is nothing sacred? Buttplug hacked!

    Why would something being in your ass be stimulating? Keep in mind that I'm a dude so that ain't really by forte, but still. And even if it is your thing, why buy a butt plug? Just eat a big meal and keep one in the chamber during "fun time", ya know?

    Is nothing sacred? Buttplug hacked!

    Yeah but you know as well as I do that the people using these things could put 'em in bottom first without batting an eye. It'll fit if you make it fit.

    First Build

    Good stuff man! Can you change the color on the front of your case? I haven't seen that one before but I do like it, just would be nice if it had that customization. Happy gaming!

    How to test Seagate HDD

    I've owned about 10 Seagates as well and had 4 of them fail total, all being the newest ones I owned. WD, HGST, and even Toshiba have never failed on me once. I personally don't know of a way to test this but I won't say it's impossible. I personally would just get a replacement to be safe.

    Is nothing sacred? Buttplug hacked!

    Y'all worried about it vibrating and heating too much. I'd be worried about it spinning like a torpedo up my ass and getting lost. Goin into the hospital like:

    My frist build, any tips?

    Have you ordered these parts yet? I question the need for 64gb of ram as well as your harddrive configuration. Why have a WD Blue for games and the Barracuda as an extra. The Barracuda will have the edge in performance but much lower reliability. You'd be better off buying one larger WD Black. I would also personally suggest the Sapphire 5700XT over the Asus. Sapphire cards are arguably the best on team red. The rest of the build looks solid. Take your time with building it. If there's something you don't remember don't take your best guess, just be patient and look it up.

    How to test Seagate HDD

    If you were so concerned about a drive dying you wouldn't have bought a Seagate Kidding (somewhat). What you're looking at is a possible mechanical failure due to improper packaging. Unfortunately there isn't a way to test this. I personally wouldn't even fuck with it, I'd just send it back and have them send out a replacement.
  14. Yes you should be able to swap boards/CPUs without needing to reinstall and then install the chipset drivers and whatever other drivers you need. I personally reinstall Windows in an event like this out of habit (and preferring to do so), but it isn't necessary anymore.

    air cooling to water cooling?/

    You can actually buy AIO water coolers for GPU's. I don't know if it's possible with your specific card but you can google it. You can also certainly find a waterblock for your GPU from EK Waterblocks. A simple Google search will reveal that.
