  1. I've found the issue. I connected the two new fans to a splitter and they work fine without the front panel on, but if I put the front panel back on then only one fan works. It looks like the front panel wires or whatever is there are interferring with the top fan to work. Maybe some magnetic interference or what. For now I'm just running one fan seeing as I can't close the panel without the top one working. Or a wire is pushing against the fan hard enough to stop it? xd
  2. Okok, I'm very boba. I got the fan pins wrong here. The old fan is a 3pin and the new ones are too. So why are the newer 3 pins not working when I connect them directly to the motherboard that has a 4pin? The only difference is the old fan is different coloured cables whereas the new one are all black.
  3. I've taken my Arctic F12 Silent fan to some PC place and it works fine when tested into a 3-2pin. I don't get why it wont work with a 4pin on the motherboard or fan splitter when my old 4pin fan does work.
  4. Without the splitter it doesn't work. I'll try and go to a PC shop and test them. These is what I'm using:
  5. I can't imagine two fans to be faulty. They're both 3 pin and it says on Amazon that it can work with a 4 pin. Is it the motherboard that doesn't accept 3 pins and only 4? I messed around with BIOS but I stil can't get the second fan to run when its connected.
  6. Hi, I got a Asus PRIME Z390M-PLUS and I'm using these two fans: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002KTVFTE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0119T0D4I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 What I don't understand is the first link fan works fine no matter the configuration but the second fan doesn't. I didn't realise that the two fans I purchase were different and so now I got two because I thought one was faulty. I bought a fan splitter thinkning it would work but it doesn't. I do have a adapter na-rc7 which I could connect it to the second fan then to the fan splitter with the 2 pins or 4 pins. Would that work? Or is it dodgy?
  7. Update 2. I bought new PSU, and that hasn't worked. I replaced the coin cell battery and same result. I have tried everything I can think of and of course, it'll be down to the motherboard being the fault, I think..
  8. Update-- I've reset CMOS by removing the coin cell battery and moving the jump pin to reset it. I tried removing defaulting the CPU over voltage jumper, and that didn't work either. It feels like either my PSU or motherboard have given up on me.
  9. Hi everyone, I would very much appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction of what to do with my PC. I was playing Deep mining galactic, whatever you call it, and my PC randomly shut off. I thought it was a power cut, but sadly it wasn't. My PC kept on turning on and turning off, like it was going through a boot-loop. I took every apart out and resemble it thinking that I might have triggered something by doing it. The only thing I messed around with was the switches built on the motherboard. I changed TPU from disabled to Enabled (CPU Ratio Boost), EZ_XMP turned off and EPU turned on. No clue if it does anything useful in this situation but worth a play around. With the PC assembled, I place it backed on the desk and put all the cables back in. Again, it didn't start! I took all the cables out and tried again. Somehow it worked, but after forcing it to shutdown and turn back on. It then wouldn't work.

  10. The only site that looks useful is Realoem.com and Ecstuning. I'm from the UK and purchasing abroad is a no go for me. My car is a BMW E46 320CI 2005 At least I know what it is, but struggling to find a place to buy it. I can't even find it on BMW main website when looking through their catalog.
  11. After 2 hours of searching, this is called a LOWER LEFT ENGINE COMPARTMENT COVER. Now I just need to blow my time on finding it through BMW part site. I'm unable to get under the car, so I would need to take it somewhere Thanks for comments.
  12. Doing countless searches but can't put my finger on what this part is called. I find names but then they lead to something else.All I want is the name for the left piece that is outlined in pencil and the other that has a red rectangle box around.
  13. I use this site plenty of times. Oh, I know its awful but I know a friend who said will get it for me if we both played. The game looks fun to play with friends and I enjoy doing quests. The game is cheap as chips to buy anyway from various sites, so no big loss like those who paid full price. Thanks for the quick responses :). I'll probably get it if the gameplay has changed since then. I haven't heard much about the game lately.
  14. I am aware my rig is in the low to medium area for some games, but I'm not expecting to play games on high or ultra. I'm fairly happy with medium settings as long as the gameplay is there. Fallout 4 ran fine, but of course, that's an older game. Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4690K CPU @ 3.50GHz AMD Radeon (TM) R9 380 Series (OC) 16GB RAM
  15. My friend was talking about qualifications and how he plans on moving up in his role or look for other places of work. I have thought about it but I'm currently 4-5 months in my new job so I'll take it easy and see where things go. I'm very much interested in hardware and security, so hopefully, there's role out there for me that fills those needs in the future.
