  1. This is why you test outside case first... helps with troubleshooting later if you get these sort of problems. Anyway, what's done is done... check all connections, especially CPU power cables/24 pin are properly seated. Try a different video cable if it's not the same one you tested with the GPU as mentioned above in the OP. If possible check motherboard/case for any loose screws, missing stand-offs etc that may be causing a fault,
  2. I actually don't mind this... IMO it beats custom sleeved cables for looks.
  3. Hmm, I don't have any other suggestions then sorry I had a similar issue with an ASUS usb wifi adaptor before, never did get it sorted... I ended up just buying another IIRC, either that or just cabled it instead, was a LONG time ago now.
  4. Help please

    gparted https://gparted.org/livecd.php
  5. Help please

    Get EASUS partition master free version https://www.easeus.com/partition-manager/epm-free.html Select the disk and change it to GPT file system. If you don't have an OS to use that on, then get gparted and put on cd/usb and boot, and do the same.
  6. Is it the latest driver from Asus website? https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/PCEN53/HelpDesk_Download/
  7. Help please

    You might have been able to enable CSM and boot it maybe. Anyway, no point in going there now.. make sure your windows installer drive is set to GPT/UEFI. I suspect it already is going by the error message you got, but just make sure.
  8. Have you tried re-installing the drivers?
  9. Thieves Steal $27K Worth of Devices From California Apple Store

    Or maybe "Lost sales"?
  10. Thieves Steal $27K Worth of Devices From California Apple Store

    Saleable goods cost it should say I think? worth is a whole other meaning when items have such a big profit margin IMO. Still, these guys should be caught and brought to justice.
  11. Upgrading my hard drive

    Agree, adding an additional drive is less hassle and more cost effective also.
  12. Upgrading CPU (G4560)

    You don't need to do anything else other than swap the CPUs if using the same motherboard.... no need to re-install windows or anything.
  13. A VPN server is more practical, also shouldn't lag much if at all, whereas Teamviewer IMO lags like hell. OpenVPN server can run on a lot of things, then on your system you want to access "home", you install the OpenVPN client and copy in 3-4 files that you are told about when setting up the OpenVPN server... some routers have the capability to run OpenVPN server too, mine does and works excellently. I access it from my phone most often, but have it set up on almost all my devices that leave the house.
  14. Lowest x16 slot he meant, there'd be no performance drop IIRC as pci-e 2.0 is still good enough for all but the newest titan I believe. OP, sorry we couldn't help, hope you get it sorted
  15. It shouldn't be a board limitation, on my b350 board I have actually shifted the main GPU down into the lowest x16 slot as the lanes are fairly close together in this board and my LSI HBA card would be partially blocking the GPUs intake fans if in the "normal" position... there has been no adverse effects, not that I expected any. Also shouldn't have anything in BIOS to change either. I suspect the pci card is faulty, have any other systems or friends systems to test it on?
