  1. I own the 750W Seasonic focus plus and want to upgrade to the newer nvidia line when they come out. But as previously mentioned in this thread, there are apparently "issues" with this PSU when combined with high end GPU's. How do I check whether I have the "fixed" 2018+ version and if this PSU will be fine powering my GPU?
  2. Apparently, according to the reddit topic below it only affects a few GPU's and it's only the case with the old Focus models.
  3. Are you sure? I have the focus plus and it's doing fine. Or is this only the case with the focus, and not the focus plus?
  4. i5 is too broad. i5 range from 30dollars to 500 dollars or more. What's your budget, what kind of games do you want to play ? Also are you not planning to get a dedicated GPU? GPU dictates what kind of games you can play more so than the CPU.
  5. Can these spikes happen during gaming aswell on adaptive? Also if electricity bill isn't a problem. is a manual constant 1.3volts (haswell) bad for the CPU (as in potential degrade faster) compared to adaptive where it goes lower in idle? Not sure wether adaptive or manual is the mode I want to set it at.
  6. I am currently using 1.3volts for my i7 4790k as overclock on manual mode. People mention that adaptive mode is not recommended for stresstesting as it can cause so called voltage spikes that hurt the CPU. So I have 2 questions, can these voltage spikes also happen during gaming in adaptive mode? And if I want to change from manual to adaptive, what voltage do I need in this case? How is that calculated.
  7. A week ago I overclocked my CPU (but it should be stable and i'm not using XMP) and I replaced my PSU with a new Seasonic focus plus. Since today I suddenly hear a ticking noise every once in a while from my computer and I have no clue what causes this ticking noise, it's only for a brief second and repeats every ~10-15mins. When i'm gaming my PC sometimes suddenly crashes (not a blue screen) and I have to hold the power button to restart it, it then fails to boot like 3-4times and then boots normally. What can cause this issue? Any help or advice is appreciated, i'm kind of clueless of where the problem can be.
  8. Viewsonic XG2401 or Benq 2411P for 144hz 1080p monitors. The viewsonic being a newer/fresher monitor. You should be more specific what resolution, which refreshrate and what size (in inch) you want. I personally have a 144hz 1080p Benq 2411Z (old model) and a Asus VC239 60hz 1080p as second monitor.
  9. I find RGB really annoying, I have it turned off on my mouse and keyboard aswell. I find it distracting and not adding anything, I want to game and watch my shows in peace.
  10. Seasonic focus plus 650/750W is really good for its price.
  11. Apparently it does, it was blocked. Ill turn my psu vent facing down right now.
  12. yea I see, I believe my old PSU is in the top right corner (white/blue box) and still don't know why it's still there. I could someday maybe put it there. But aslong as my GPU/CPU temps are fine I guess there's no problem for now right? Also I can't check my PSU temps, can I assume it's fine even though it's "fighting for air" ?
  13. But my PSU then blows towards the bottom of my PC? There's no vent's or anything.
  14. My PSU currently blows towards my GPU and my GPU down to my PSU. If my temperatures are fine, should I then still reinstall my PSU somewhere else or is this fine? CPU is around 60-70c under load (valley) GPU is around 67-70c under load (valley)
  15. Haven't yet noticed any problems with cstates on yet. What exactly does disabling c1e and c6/7cstates do?
