    Here's an excel document with a list of many SFF cases available to help you sort through some options. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dzRY3LLsXcDX5Qt5PvQOrAJhw0EK9Cy7UtQPdyRp6PY/edit#gid=0

    neat sheet. i'm moving from the corsair 250D to the silverstone ML08B-H because even though the corsair is small it doesn't work well for travel. 
    the notes that you have on that sheet are great too.

    My CPU goes to about 80-85 Degrees while Loading up a game e.g BF5

    But when playing the game Its goes to around 65-70 Degrees is this okay?


    Motherboard - MSI Z390 Pro
    CPU - i7-9700k 3.6Ghz

    CPU Cooling - Corsair Hydro H100i V2

    RAM - 32GB

    GPU - RTX 2080 Ti
    PSU - 750W Modular


    it's not going to hurt it. 


    nice build btw.

    I would imagine it is automatic for AMD stuff too, it is just that many people or certain types of hardware people need to have the 0-day release of drivers so they can install them and complain about what is broken or cheer about what has been fixed.  Windows and manufacturers websites do not provide such a "fix"

    being a day0 tester is asking for heartache unless you're into it. trust me. i setup products for people and before i'm finished and they pay for it they already try to use it. then they complain and ask me to fix it before i'm done. 


    unless it's super new and you're having issues windows probably has you covered.

    @VioDuskar i luckily do have skinny fingers 😅 what is your cooling setup like?  did you go with a small aio or a low profile air cooler?  also what is the case fan setup if you are able to tell me

    i'm still waiting for my parts to come in, but in that case you have no options for case fans. hence the blower GPU. 

    my CPU will being going from a 120x2 AIO to a low profile noctua l9i chromax black. it's a tiny tiny fan that's only rated for 65W TDP. i'm about to slap it on a 91W intel 7700k. 


    find me later this week and i'll let you know how it goes. i expect to undervolt/downclock my CPU a bit.

    @VioDuskar roger that, any other things to watch out for?  This is my first attempt at a SFF build, however I have watched endless content on building them in cases similar to that silverstone.  Modular power supply is often necessary correct?  also this computer will be doing no gaming, just internet and light photoshop work.

    that case cannot accept an ATX powersupply. you must get an SFX form factor supply. 

    i will not EVER buy a PSU if it isn't modular. Modular is a MUST. 

    also, hope you have small hands and nimble fingers. 


    always pack more RAM that you think you'll need. 


    Road tips:

    get an IR blaster for your phone so you can get into the menus of hotel TVs that you might use for displays. they normally overscan.

    get a motherboard with WiFi/bluetooth support, as some hotels don't always have ethernet jacks, and bluetooth headphones might be all you can carry.

    don't spend too much on a fancy keyboard and mouse that's too bulky. get something practical and light/small.


  6. feel it and make sure it's getting power. HDDs vibrate, SSDs warm up. after that try a different port. some motherboards don't support SATA hotswap. i'd reboot after changing ports.

    I finished the check, there  wasn't any problems found

    sorry, i went to sleep man. how did it go? any luck in the last day? if not i'm unload your data and try to reinstall windows.

    Oh ok. But will the PC blow up tho? Someone said the capacitor may be damaged and can pop inside the PSU and permanently damage the PSU and/or GPU. It is making me really scared :(. Is this true?!?!

    yes, a capacitor popping is the most likely scenario. this will cause instant power loss and may surge components.

    your RAM is more likely to feel hurt because of this before your GPU though. 


    parts to worry about if your PSU sucks in this order: 

    RAM, MoBo, CPU, GPU 


    just go buy a seasonic PSU as soon as you can. like right now. don't wait.

    Oh ok it's stopped for sometime now, I will do that and also record when it resumes
    Can you please tell what's wrong with a corsair CX PSU? It never had problem for 9 months :( Replacing it would take very very long in this quarantine situation :( 


    people have had a history of getting harsh coil whines from them for years now. i think they parts are probably cheaper. 

    Seasonic is the best PSU maker, and EVGA isn't too bad. Corsair more premium PSUs can be good, and i've had luck with them so far, but the lower end CX lineup isn't as dependable.

    i think its coming from the PSU and its fan is facing down (theres a filter in the bottom of the case). So there wont be any cables interfering the fans but dust can be interfering the fans as i havent cleaned it since i built (9 months)

    Mobo - Gigabyte B450 Aorus M
    CPU - AMD Ryzen 2600
    RAM - Corsair LPX 2x8gb
    GPU - RX570
    PSU - Corsair CX550

    I will upload the recording asap

    a corsair CX PSU? i'd say you probably should replace it. open the PC up and see if you can verify the noise is coming from the PSU.

  11. if your CPU is Boss, gotta give it the Sauce

    Watercool for FlexFactor™. 


    otherwise 105W TDP is probably fine on air. 

    back in the ol' Vashira days we tried to air cool 220W TDP CPUs bro. it was lit. not in a good way. 220W needs liquid, 105W does not.

    Yeah. Im just going to wait for the case to arrive and the new cables. New cables and new case won't hurt and will make things feel fresh. A strange thing happened to me. A long time ago when I didn't know anything about PCs i wouldn't just mess around, i just played, at that time my case had all the connectors and it was all connected. One day my mobo fried, (not on this house) and i bought a cheap case (this one) with the fear of burning another mobo, (don't blame me i was dumb xD). When i unpluged the connectors in this case, i got input lag. Im starting to believe i really need to have everything plugged in for the pc to actually work how it's supposed to. I got input lag just by removing the connectors. When i connected them the pc started to be a little bit better in terms of latency. Strange days

    your input lag is probably a different problem that is a conversation for a different day. once you get your grounding issue sorted make another thread about your input lag. 


    make sure you tell us what your specs are, what games you play, what type of control you use, if you use WiFi or LAN cables, what GPU drivers you use.

    I was just browsing and then i noticed a loud buzz coming from the pc. I thought it'll go off soon but it was on for 5 mins continuously!!! So I turned the pc off. The buzz was still there!! I unplugged the power plug to the PSU and even now it's still there. Its still buzzing now!!! I unplugged all external cables and the buzzing stopped in 2 mins.


    After  a while I turned it back and now its working. For 2 hours it didnt buzz and then it started buzzing back


    It sounds like an air conditioner buzzing. you know when those air conditioners go bzzz and it can be heard even when you are not near it. the same happens for my pc now. It started to happen only from this morning



    record this? what motherboard are you using?

    I changed the powerstrips to connect multiple devices. I only had my monitor and my pc connected. I don't mess around with electricity haha. The monitor got burned in the back, a 240 hz monitor, i asked dell for a rma and they sent me a new one. The monitor literally was black on the behind. c14 i mean (just tge standard ones). I was using the PSU cable on the monitor and the monitor one on the PSU. I guess it doesn't a difference 


    oh yeah. your house/ apartment has unstable or improperly wired power. you need to verify this with a power tester, and maybe see if you can find an electrician if you can verify bad wiring.

    I bought a new good quality case and some new C13 cables. One for my monitor and one for the psu. Since one of my monitor actually burned in with one of the cables xD All though it wasn't the cables fault its only like 6€ for two new good brand cables


    what do you mean monitor burned in? 


    changed 5 power surges? you mean the outlets? you changed them yourself? you probably want to make sure the wiring is right and that the house itself is grounded properly. i'm starting to think @Hilltrot had a good idea.


    it's not going to be the c13 cable man.
