  2. Why dont I have a gigabit option?

    That is very peculiar. Sounds like something just didn't want to work right the first time.
  3. User Stuck Viewing All FP Topics

    I believe so, yes.
  4. Floatplane Suggestion

    I believe it exists already but it's still very alpha so there are some issues to be worked out. Kyle did a stream once I believe.
  5. New Asus Z370 Strix-I with 8700k not booting

    Did you double check the 8-pin CPU power?
  6. Removal of thermal paste

    Q-Tips and Rubbing Alcohol is one way.
  7. I need a modem

    Who is your ISP? Need to find a list of approved modems to make it easier to determine what you should go for. What speed and type of internet? ADSL?
  8. First time building PC

    The PCPP link is empty. You need to copy from the share link, not the browser URL.
  9. How bad is this PC Build

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor ($158.90 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AB350M-DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($64.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Patriot - Viper 4 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($89.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Team - L5 LITE 3D 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($49.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($43.90 @ OutletPC) Case: Cougar - MX330 ATX Mid Tower Case ($24.99 @ SuperBiiz) Power Supply: Corsair - CX (2017) 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($29.99 @ Newegg) Total: $462.75 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-06-24 10:57 EDT-0400 Put in a GPU later on down the line. This will suffice for most games at 1080p on med to high settings, depending on the game. One thing to keep in mind is check reviews on the board or buy locally to make sure you get one with a Raven Ridge compatible BIOS.
  10. Check if there is a Traffic Meter under Advanced > Advanced Setup, or somewhere thereabout. If it's enabled try to disable it.
  11. User Stuck Viewing All FP Topics

    Lol, he recently viewed over 50 topics that I checked going back several pages. Recently viewed is only 10 or so minutes iirc.
  12. This site seems to have them all: https://tb.rg-adguard.net/public.php I double checked before linking it and it just pulls from Microsoft directly and makes them easy to find. No cracked images or anything illegal and the hashes are legit but you can double check as well
  13. So I happened to notice this yesterday and confirmed today. @Sammy8806 seems to be stuck listed as "recently viewed" for all Floatplane topics Example:
  14. Wireless or wifi? Did you swap cases? If so did you put the antennas on all the way (if wifi)?
  15. best gaming setup for $500

    Solid build for 1080p at moderate graphic settings with the option to toss in a beefy GPU down the line. You've got a quality PSU that won't go boom just to save a couple dollars. An SSD for Windows and a few programs to provide a snappy user experience. The only thing to double check is to make sure the motherboard has an updated BIOS for the Raven Ridge APU, or you can go to a local shop and get it updated for a couple bucks. Plus you've got faster memory which, as mentioned above, the Ryzen chips will definitely enjoy and take advantage of.
