  1. sorry I didn't reply, but after I power down the machines turn on and off the PSU and reboot the system it works fine. But sometime the problem will come back, so I have to do that again. What should I do?
  2. switch slots or take it out and put it back in?
  3. I just got a new set of Trident z RGB, and only one of the sticks are syncing. In Asus Aura their at a static color, so 1 of the sticks are stuck at blue, but the second one still going through all the colors. On stick is in slot A1 and the second stick is in B1 if that helps. Also, this problem continues after a restart. Does anyone have a fix? Thanks
  4. I just got a new system, and I just encountered this problem. I was watching a video, when all of a sudden both of my monitors went black and displayed the "lost Signal" message, audio went out and it acted as if it was shut down, but the PC still on and was the same. I had to restart the PC, so I held down the power button, nothing happened so I was forced to use the PSU switch to turn on and off the system. Does anybody know how I can fix this? Thanks

    Bad FPS

    Both GPU and CPU are at 50 degrees. I'll try cleaning it though. Haven't in a while.

    Bad FPS

    I've always had pretty good frame rate in Games(Overwatch, Fortnite). I don't remember the exact frame rate but it was always smooth, there were no drops, and it was all good. However last week, fortnite was experiencing heavy frame drops, down from 60 to 10. I updated drivers for my 1050, and it was all good again. Constant 60fps at all times. This week when I was playing overwatch, I was having pretty bad frames drops to 20, and I was averaging 40 fps. I checked fortnite in case it was a game issue, but fortnite was having frame drops too. I can't find a solution. All temps are fine. haven't changed settings. Haven't installed anything other than drivers since then. Did malware scan. Any ideas? Specs fx-6300 GTX 1050 8gb DDR3 Thanks. This guy's running EPIC settings and has constant 60FPS. I'm running high at 40
  7. I lowered all low on Fortnite and I was still experiencing the same problems. Happened less, but still happened. Memory runs around 80%-90%
  8. Do you know why it ran fine at the beginning?It was at a consistent 60FPS.
  9. Yeah, I'm planning to get a 1600, but is there a way to fix it now? It was fine last week.
  10. So, I got my 1050 last month and I've been playing a lot of Fortnite and Overwatch. I was getting a constant 60FPS at pretty much the highest settings. However, recently I've been experiencing huge frame drops from 2FPS to 60FPS. It makes the games really unplayable. GPU's at 40% and CPU at 98%. Both around 50 degrees. Ram usage is also really high, even after closing browser which takes up a large majority of it. Specs: fx-6300 Gtx 1050 8 Gigs DDR3 Thanks

  12. Nice build, my friends max budget is $800, so $34 over isn't really going to work for him, so could you go cheaper?
  13. does 1050ti not bottleneck the i3-8100?
