    As i asked.. explain please...  i dont really care about money , i will get it if needed, i interested to know, if the hot weather will damage the system. Lets imagine, i am not home, the pc not running, its off, but in the room the temp is 34 C"

    No, Since your parts are going to be around 80 degrees c under load. And it doesn't get that hot anywhere on earth your system will be fine.

    Alright, will do.


    So the GPU was bought around new year's time. I was thinking the same thing about the paste, but isn't it too soon?

    Some 390's have their warranty voided if you open them up. I know the MSI one does.

    So I decided that it would be a good idea to go ahead and follow the steps seen in the video below. I was able to complete the steps without a problem. I upped my resolution from 1920 by 1080 to 2560 by 1440 and everything went just fine after that. However when I went and restarted my computer I was getting no visual output of any kind. The monitor and computer were on but for some reason the monitor wasn't receiving input. I decided to take out the GPU (GTX 980) and see if connecting to the onboard graphics through DVI would at least allow me to access the computer, I first went into the UEFI BIOS and changed the video output to CPU Graphics. I was able to then access the computer normally. I then shutdown and added the GPU back in and logged back on using the onboard graphics. However I was unable to access Nvidia Control Panel to reset the resolution settings to default. I tried then setting the default video input back to PCIe to see if it would work. It did, but only after a very long boot time. I went back in and changed the Nvidia Control Panel settings back to default and restarted to see if the problem was actually solved. When I restarted the same thing happened as before, no input to the monitor. Does anyone have any helpful advice that may lead to a solution?


    System Specifications:


    Maximus VII Hero

    Intel Core i7 4790k

    16GB Corsair Vengeance

    Geforce GTX 980

    BenQ XL2420G (G-Sync)

    Connected using Display Port



    Try deleting all the video drivers you have. That should force all the settings to reset.

    I am trying to learn how to solder capacitors. I know what capacitors I need, but what type of solder do I need. I was watching EricTheCarGuy (Not a tech channel, but should show me the basics of soldering, and I am not watching the older video), and he said 60/40 worked better for him then some other type of solder. So what type of solder do I need?


    Link to EricTheCarGuy video:


    For any pcb work you want solder with a low melting point ( Higher lead concentration ). You don't want much heat being transferred to the pcb and damaging traces and pathways.

    ok so im building my first pc and all i need is a cpu and gpu left until its done, so i bought an AMD motherboard (MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard) and i dont know if i should buy an fx 8350, and then buy an r7 360 (or some other $100 range gpu). And then later upgrade my graphics card to something better, OR i could buy an A8 7600 and use its integrated gpu until i have enough money to buy a beast graphics card and then buy the 8350 replacing the A8 7600. its a tough decision that i cant make up my mind on and i need to some help.

    Wouldn't even bother with the 8350. I would have gone down the Haswell refresh line up of cpu's for a budget pc i.e the G3258 and 750ti or better depending on your budget.

    What is the best ram to buy for a new pc. I'm getting the x99 sabertooth motherboard with the new broadwell e cpu coming out this may 30th the 6850k to be exact. I have everything picked out except for the ram. I want to get the fastest ram possible but I see as ram frequency goes up so does the cas latency so doesn't that just cancle any improvments on higher frequency? I'm looking for either a kit of 64gb 8x8 or a 32gb 8x4.

    I'm going to be gaming/video editing/programming on it.

    I have a laptop i have recently bought from Dell and am wanting to upgrade to an SSD.


    I have found the product key for windows but will it let me activate windows on the same product key if i install windows again on the SSD in the laptop?


    Thanks in advance 

    I've had problems with retail keys not activating after installing a new storage device. But not with oem keys.

    If you mean product-wise, of couse cable mod offers good ones (I think they even offer custom sleeving now).

    Cooler Master and Silverstone also offer sleeved kits. They all have a good reputation.


    I myself bought (I think) the Bitfenix Alchemy white extentions. The heatshrink is visible and the actual sleeve is made of PET (plastic) which makes it less attractive to dirt e.g. when you handle the cables. Well, and they all work with good quality.

    I just have pre done ones from cable mods. Oh and remember you have to get cables compatible with your psu just in case you didn't already know. :)


    The cable mod ones are very high quality and look fantastic!
