    It's definitely power-related. Take a look inside the USB headers. A short in it looks something like this. If the +5VDC pin contacts the collar, it'll short circuit and usually cause your issue. If there's nothing wrong with them and nothing wrong with your external devices, you should assemble just a bare minimum setup outside the case. Just the PSU, board and CPU with a cooler. You could try even without the CPU at first. It's not gonna pass POST but it'll rule out these components if it powers up. Add a stick of ram, try it, add a GPU, try it, add a keyboard, try it... Once it it finally starts acting up again, you should have an idea of what's causing it.


    Just a note here. While unlikely, it's possible that a seemingly unrelated component is bricking your parts. Off the top of my head, a bad HDD could have a short circuit in it that kills the PSU and the PSU kills the board. You buy new stuff and it kills them off the bat... This is one of several good reasons to have a shop look into it. You can have all the knowhow, spare parts and tools in the world but if there's a bad component that breaks other components, you really should have someone else destroy their parts rather sooner than later. 

    Yeah at this point, I think I am just going to do that take it apart and just build a bare minimum system and see if I can work something out from there

    Have you took a look for the power frequency in your country and what the PSU can take?


    Some PSU's can't operate at certain frequency's....


    Here is a overview with the frequency's around the world: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utility_frequency#/media/File:Voltage_and_frequency.png

    Im in the UK we use 220-240v 50Hz on the power supply box says 100V - 240V and 47Hz - 63Hz, so I think this means that its okay? 

  3. Hello,


    Thanks all for replies in advance, So a few months back I built a system on a Gigabyte Z97X-SOC, I am not doing any crazy over clocking in fact everything is still running at stock, it was all running fine and then one day I came to turn it on and it just didn't, and on this motherboard like quite a few now days you have a little button on the board that lights up when the board gets power and even that wasn't lighting up, So I tested the power supply and that seemed to be fine, this motherboard has one of the error code displays on the board and I read through the manual and it seemed to me that if it was anything but the actual mobo or PSU that I would get an error code. So I contacted Amazon and got the mobo replaced because the power supply seemed to be fine, new mobo came put the system back together I had the same problem no power was getting to the mobo I wasn't getting the power light like you usually would. So i ordered a new power supply corsair rm750x and I just installed that and still no luck. I am really stuck with what to do next as I now have no clue what to try and this is where I need your help LTT community :) again thanks for the replys in advance any help is greatly appreciated 

  4. Fiio E10k


    One thing to note - it goes up to 150ohms, but is more than enough for a pair like those. I myself have the DT990 Pro 250ohm headphones, and it powers them fine.


    The E10k looks like a good option at the moment :) Thanks


    Fulla schiit (this is a DAC/Amp) , Modi, ODac. :)


    Thanks for the quick response buddy, ill check those out cheers



    what are you connecting to it

    Do you mean what device or what headphones?

  6. Hello,


    I'm looking at getting a DAC but I want something that is good value for money. obviously the cheaper the better.


    Any advice much appreciated 


    Thanks in advance


  7. Hi guys,


    A friend of mine is looking to buy a second hand Sapphire R9 280x Toxic from a shop that had got them from someone who had used them for bit coin mining. He has been given a fair price of 140 when the cards are 260 new.


    I just want to know your thoughts on this and weather you think its a good idea or not, I just think that it wont last long as the card has been running at 100% load for a long time while mining.



  8. I'm in need of some help to create a solid network for my two computers. Currently I have 1 operational computer connected to my router downstairs via the world's longest ethernet cable to my room. It is just simply too much hassle to run a second cable to my second pc that is being built now as I put the first cable being the wall.

    My theory is that if I purchased a second router and connected it to the primary router via the already existing cable then run the 2 computers via ethernet cable to the second router. And have my PS4, Apple TV, etc all connected via wifi to the primary router as they are currently.

    Would this even work?

    Would I suffer from a weaker/slower connection by using what in effect is an extender.

    Any better ideas for a possible solution?





    What your looking for is a switch, a small 4 - 8 port switch. Can find them cheapo enough on amazon.


    Hope this helps

  9. Could just set up a vpn server on one of the dells and port forward which ever vpn protocol you use to the server. Wham bam thank ya mam'


    Only problem is, Don't have a static IP. I should just be able to get round this with Dynamic DNS right?

    That, Is genius? Why did I never thought of this, Recommendations for a vpn server? 

  11. Im guessing you mean me?  didn't quote :)


    The way i got arround "parenting" issues was i just went and bought the stuff of ebay and timde it exactly so it would arrive when no ones home, muahahahha     (dont get your self in to troble though!)

    To be fair I did ask first and spend weeks of perswading.  Are you intrested in IT, servers networking? doing a course even?  This is allways a good excuse to buy devices


    Yeah, I am, I am currently studying IT at college and off to University soon to study computer systems and networks. I have got some old cisco enterprise and a couple old dell servers just to play around and I did it like you said just got it off ebay. Hehe but I want to get a better home router that will allow me to set my servers up in a DMZ so I can get to them over the internet and maybe host some stuff of them for me and a few friends but stuck with a shitty old BT HH5 that you cannot configure at all. 

  12. I can't post an image of ipconfig /all with my laptop yet, but when I ping a website through Command Prompt it sends all 4 packets but never receives them...


    It could just be that the web server your trying to ping is set to block pings for security reasons. Ill wait for the ipconfig so I can see whats going on. There is obviously some miss configuration somewhere

  13. I noticed that my DHCP Sever address was 0.0.etc when my internet was down, and that it was 1.etc when it was up. And it stayed with the second address on my laptop, do I have to enable a DHCP server in windows 7?

    I dont quite follow what your saying here, And why is your internet being routed through your laptop? did you set it up to do that

  14. It turns out that I have no protocol driver or whatever it is for IPv6, does anyone know a good driver for that for the Killer e2200?

    IPv6 shouldn't matter, sorry to be a pain but can I have a screen shot of ipconfig run on something that is connected to the same router that can get the internet
