    How does being plugged in vs. on battery effect the error?

    Dell 27" 1440p 155Hz monitor for $352 on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N2L5CXO Asus 24" 1080p 144Hz monitor for $250: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B2HH7G0/

    My pc takes 5 boots

    Follow @Constantin's suggestion and also double check everything else including the graphics card is plugged in all the way.
  4. Smallest mATX option would be something like the Fractal Design Core 1100 unless you're willing to go with a half-height graphics card with a case like the silverstone ML03. If you want small and portable I recommend going with ITX.
  5. Any case that can fit a mATX motherbaord will be significantly larger than the RVZ03

    DIY table fan

    That's weird. But at least it works! I probably wouldn't have thought of that.

    Does this happen every time you turn the pc on or just the first time? Edit: Welcome to the forum btw!

    Well then its not the fans fault its the chargers fault. I don't think you'll be able to get it working with the two chargers that you have but if you find a third one that would best your best option.

    Oh, well then I guess that wouldn't work. Well, without the ability to verify the voltage of the charger or confirm that the fan works then you may be out of luck.

    It could be that you might of worn out the charger from drawing more power than it was rated for. Just to double check, the fan still works if you were to plug it into your computer, yes?

    Hmm, I'm surprised the first one didn't work. Do you have a way to check the voltage coming from the chargers? It may be that it is actually less than 12 volts and if it is too low it wont be able to get the fan started.

    DIY table fan

    Well, they are both use 12 volts so that is good. Do note that the output of charger in the second photo is only rated at 60 milliamps and the ml 140 fan is rated for 202 mA. The charger in the first photo has a 1 amp rating which is enough. I haven't done this myself but as long as you get the positive and negative wires right it should work.

    Laptop for School

    Depends, do you need it now or are you willing to wait for possibly a couple months. I wouldn't hold your breath as the Gram is already a good choice and any improvements they make likely wont be too big.

    WD Blue vs WD Purple

    He means yes, go for the WD Purple since they are the same price. I also agree.
  15. What is the gpu clock speed for each position? For that card the position with the higher clock speed will be the default position.
