  1. I like the direction you were going with it but I would not buy a cheap case with known terrible thermals and then slap another 20 pounds worth of high end fans in it. Get a different case instead with better airflow is my recommendation. For reference: Gamer's Nexus Cooler master Q500L video on Youtube. Different size but same problematic frontpanel on the 300.
  2. What display output are you using? Are you sure you are set to the right input on the monitor? Did you get a speaker to plug into your mobo? Go get that and plug it in and refer to the manual for peeping patterns. Any debug LEDs?
  3. Which doesn't mean you should actuall sit 1.8 meters from it. At that distance the dpi/degree fov would be to heigh meaning you won't be able to discern text or small objects/ your resolution would be uneffectively high.
  4. Looks decent, thanks. Do you have any experience running it with other software? It specifically advises against other software in the background but I might want to use MSI Afteterburner for GPU OC even if I don't set a fan profile there.
  5. I have a watercooled rig but can currenty only control fans via CPU temp because Asus Fan Expert does not read GPU. I have an Asus x570 Strix I Gaming and an EVGA 2080 Ti Blower. All fans are connected to the motherboard. In the past I have fiddled with speedfan but it was a clunky mess. Is there anything more vercitile i can use to bundle both temps so fans also ramp when GPU temps climb?
  6. Maybe try emailing corsair about it. Buying extension won't fix ur problem since u will need to plug into extensions somehow. So either custom wiring or RMA with corsair. I'd try to ask them for a set of new cables/ new 24Pin. Before you do that, do a visual inspection, also pluggin it in may require uncomfortable amounts of force. Almost all connectors i had to plug in perpendicular to the board made the board warp. I did not expect that but a bit of give is fine. Overstretching may damage solder joints of some components tho so apply reasonable care. TL DR it may require significantly more force to plug in that LEGO but that is normal EDIT: If the plastic latch for securing it does not close it is not in!
  7. iirc you can set a copy speed for dd. I would just go slow and leave it running for long time (depending on the amount of data obv). That is your best chance imo. I think I remember Linus described a similar process when he visited a professional business with a clean room and all that does data recovery. might be worth a look.
  8. if the drive is physically broken you should not try to use it anymore if it is important data. I would send it to recovery immediately but that will run you in the neighbourhood of 1000€ . What is on the drive? My best guess for DIY solution is booting a linux and using 'dd' to make a bit for bit copy of what is on there. i have had similar issues with non dead drives, like copying from my phone but i have not fix for that. Some things work shittily but may not be broken.
  9. Check temps with ryzen master and voltage with CPU-Z. Aim for lowest voltage that is stable and gets you temps you are comfortable with.
  10. what drivers were attached when u installed windows? There used to be an issue where windwos would scatter some data over all attached drives when installing, so even though one specifically selected the NVMe SSD it would still boot slow because some necessary stuff went on the HDD which was also attached at install-time.
  11. There is not physical difference. They are the same. That is to say, a 7700 will not worked in a 100 series board so you will need a new one. Thank intel, there was zero need and it is all software lock. I also don't think the upgrade is worthwhile. If you really need more power and have some good coolign already, i would recommend looking at a used 6700k. If u factor in the cost of a new board i would jump more than one gen, given both of these are not up to date any more (not to say there are outdated, just not current anymore).
  12. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/52207/intel-core-i5-2400-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html 3.1 base 3.4 turbo The largest number on the box is almost allways some sort of bullshit.
  13. What an absolute unit. Looking forward to the following steps. I have had the pleasure to build in a meshify C to and i really enjoyed it tho it was similarly tight and I had to do some mods. I am curious as to how you're mountin your res to the RAM, how wobbly that solution is. Doing my cables also felt like it took half of the build and plan time so I feel you. I really like your gradient but I have to say I preferred the variant without the silver cables as the reflective properties looked more uniform. Greetings from south-west Germany
  14. Your new motherboard just takes longer to post. The fans are supposed to be maxed if uncontrolled. Imagine something breaking. Would you rather want the fans to ramp up to max or to turn off because something is no longer working. If your fans are uncontrolled they are supposed to run at full speed. Your fans not spinning is a separate problem. How is the hub powered? How much current does your mobo allow for? Check your manual or write an email to Asus. Compare that to what your fans draw at max.
  15. Get the newest driver from nvidia.com/driver and never ever rely on your OEM for a GPU driver. They are almost never up to date!
