  1. I just let it cycle for about 5 mins with nothing but cpu and 1 ram stick. Doesn't seem to be stopping the cycle
  2. i7-4790 Mother board: gigabyte GA-z97x-sli GTX 1060 6gb Ram: 2x4 Gb DDR3 2133 Evga supernova nex650g So I today I got more ram that I ordered to go up to 4x4 Gb of 2133. The ram didn't fit with my current cooler since it blocked the first ram slot, so I installed a new cooler. I was using a hyper 212 Evo but now have a corsair H60. After installing the new cooler and ram I went to boot and it turns off a couple of seconds after I try to power on then enters a loop of trying to turn on then immediately turning off. I have tried re seatingy ram, checking all cables and re connecting them, resetting CMOS. Booting with only cpu and 1 stick of ram. I'm at my wits end of what's causing the problem. Would this happen if there's not enough mounting pressure since I'm testing with the cooler off? Any suggestions and advice welcome. Edit: while troubleshooting I tried starting it with just cpu with power to the mobo and the cooler. Same thing happened. I then made sure my cmos was clear and replaced the battery, same thing. Does this mean that the problem is with my motherboard/cpu/psu?

  4. I have 2x 4GB of DDR3 2133 in a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI with an i7-4790 I was in my BIOS yesterday and saw that my memory was running at 1600 instead of its 2133 I checked my motherboards manual and it says it supports 1600/1333 as well as XMP Im not sure what XMP is, is this an option in my BIOS that will let me run my RAM at 2133 or is it running at the lower 1600 because of a limitation of my CPU or board? I assume its not the board since on the PCPartPicker page it lists 2133 as compatible, or does compatible just mean that it will run those memory frequencies at 1600/1333 like my manual says? Sorry for all the questions. Im trying to buy 8GB more of ram and wanted to know if my current setup is installed incorrectly or less efficiently.
  5. No no no, Dujith is refering to the picture of the HDD (first picture in the post) I didn't even think about trying those screws...it worked I feel like an idiot...thanks internet
  6. So I got a new SSD to put in my laptop to replace its infuriatingly slow HDD. The original hard drive has this rubber around it https://i.imgur.com/4UCGMCu.jpg making a nice tight fit in the crevice created for the storage device. My SSD obviously does not have the same (sled?) around it nor can I replace the one on the hard drive to the SSD Should I be worried about the SSD being shifted inside? If so, how should I support the SSD to ensure that it does not slide? Picture of what I am talking about: https://i.imgur.com/Esqdb0w.jpg
  7. UPDATE: So my old All in one cooler was basically broken. I went out (by going out I mean one day Amazon Prime shipping) and got a Corsair H60. Frame rate is stable now so the problem seems to be fixed! While I was running a game I was watching my temps as well as my GPU and CPU usage. Heres the picture: http://imgur.com/a/qdGqF Should I be worried about how much the GPU usage is fluctuating or is that normal? Thanks for all the help, everyone!
  8. UPDATE: I went into my bios and while not running anything my cpu was at 91C Obviously I need a new cpu cooler. Would this be the cause of my problem? Also should I avoid using my computer till I get a new cooler?
  9. Yeah, I also tested it in Mass Effect 3 and Diablo 3. They all have the same problem.
  10. So I downloaded the driver from here http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-Edition-16.7.2-Release-Notes.aspx and it downloaded 16.7.3 not 16.7.2 even though I unchecked the box to install updates. Try again? Specs http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Celsha/saved/2cfXsY Edit: Also re-wiping and installing didn't fix it, thought it was noteworthy to say even though it installed 16.7.3
  11. Should I go to 16.7.2? I was on that version when the problem first started so I wiped and updated to 16.7.3 to try to solve the problem
  12. Seems to still be doing the same thing after switching to high performance
  13. It was on balenced, but was on it for a while so I dont know why it would start acting up now. Im gonna re-wipe and install using different drivers like what i_build_nanosuits said and try again
