    GPU or PSU What is the issue HELP

    This may not be a PSU issue... What makes you think it is? That PC likely doesn't draw more than 200 watts under full load... maybe 250 TOPS. So what exactly is it doing? Could be a driver issue, could be heat related, could be many things.... For drivers, I would start uninstalling them (could use DDU for this, google DDU, it will show up right away), for temp testing I would use AIDA64 and stress test it, see what the CPU is doing temps wise and for GPU I would use something like furmark and check temps with either MSI afterburner or evga precision, both work the same. If CPU is over 90c, you have a serious CPU cooling issue. If GPU is over 85-90, you have a serious GPU cooling issue. If all temps are fine, and driver uninstall and reinstall didn't help, it could be PSU, but its hard to know for sure without more information.

    I can't get any display to show

    So, those parts won't ever come close to using 300 watts of power, but its certainly possible that quality or age of the PSU.... just isn't up to it. But, looks like that motherboard has integrated video. So you should try pulling the rx 460 out and seeing if you can get display out of the motherboards on board display ports. If so, you are likely having a GPU issue, or a possible power issue, although this will be hard to figure out. I would start with pulling the video card out and seeing what it does.
  3. So, a storage device unless CRAZY slow will never make it so you can't play games. It will as @kirashisaid just load the game and levels pretty slowly. Its possible if its SO slow, you will get texture pop in as they load into RAM and VRAM, but, technically, yes it will work... I guess the real question here is what are your system specs. If you are trying to play modern triple A tittles, you need a relatively "decent" computer, and smaller SSD's are very cheap these days in respect to the total PC's price. For 30 bucks you can get a 250 GB SSD that would be "enough" to store a few solid AAA games on... Like this https://smile.amazon.com/Kingston-240GB-Solid-SA400S37-240G/dp/B01N5IB20Q/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=256+ssd&qid=1561525170&s=gateway&sr=8-5

    GPU upgrade need some help

    Personally, I love my 2080... RTX is cool, and it will only get better. Its not a huge game changer right now, but the tech is incredible and WILL make an amazing difference in the future. That said, the 2080 won't be the card to make that "huge difference". Cards down the line with great ray tracing ability will. That said, its cool to be a part of that tech tree and see what it can do. Honestly, even at low ray tracing settings in BF V I think it truly looks fantastic!

    good cheap big ssds for data storage?

    What do you mean? NMVe? If so, yes, you can have m.2 that are NVMe, but you can also have a m.2 that is SATA. If... that is what your asking?

    I have one in another machine... the same machine this 8700k used to be in. 1 TB version, and I do photo work on that machine as well, haven't seen any issues yet..? That PC feels the same for day to day use, game loads, and lightroom photo work as the one in my sig.... But I don't know about this issue, I would assume it was just a fluke. I believe Samsung drives are usually pretty solid.

    Literally, 100% agree with both points.

    good cheap big ssds for data storage?

    There really isn't a difference between "fast" and "not fast" ssd's. Yes, NVMe makes them "faster", but thats sorta irrelevant for your use case IMO. a 256 or 500 NVMe drive (if your mobo supports it) would be good for OS and some games, but, at the same time, I have NVMe machines and normal SATA SSD machines and they feel literally identical in performance. Also, for RAW photowork with a Nikon D850.... It felt about the same as well. Not the same as scrubbing through a video timeline, but it is my observation. That said, I would look at these bad boys. 860 Evo. https://smile.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=860%2Bevo&qid=1559953726&s=gateway&sr=8-1&th=1

    Looking at replacing PSU

    I run a corsair rm650i which is great option! For reference, the build in my sig only draws about 350-400 watts, so a 650 is more than enough for your needs.

    Mjölnir - White Lightning 2.0

    Backstory: I got a fantastic deal on a RTX 2080, so I decided to go a bit ham and #sendit with an entirely new water cooling setup, borrowing parts from another build of mine. For reasons that don't much matter here, I have two PC's, one is a 6700k @ 4.6 GHZ and a GTX 1080 FTW @ 1999 MHz, all on water (currently this is my sig, will soon change once this build is finished). I have another machine I built with a 8700k @ 5 GHz on a hyper 212 Evo and a GTX 1070 FTW I more or less got for free from a buddy. With this new 2080, I figured it would be stupid not to pair it with the 8700k which isn't my main machine. Its more of a family use/backup for me. Parts: 8700k EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra MSI Z390-A Pro (got this basically for free with the 8700k at a micro center sale, only reason I even have a 8700k tbh) 4x8GB DDR4 3000MHz C15 Corsair LPX Samsung 950 Pro NVMe 512 GB Samsung 830 Pro 256 GB x2 RAID 0 Corsair RM650i Sound BlaterX EA-5 Alphacool XT45 X- Flow 420 Alphacool UT60 280 EK Vector RTX 2080 EK Supremacy Classic RGB Noctua NF-A14 PWM Chromax x3 Noctua NF-P14s Redux PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 3/8 ID Elegant White Corsair Commander Pro Fractal Design Define S2 Gunmetal The Plan: The plan is to use the UT60 up front, with the Redux fans in push. These parts are being reused from my old setup which is why I didn't just buy new chromax fans for this rad. No point to me, just would up the price by ~50 bucks for no real gain. Under idle the front fans will be off completely anyways which is how I have my current setup. With this much rad space, I am curious how long I will be able to run with no fans at all, just as a fun test. I do plan to run the top fans on the 420 rad at about 450-500 rpm at idle as the goal here is dead silent PC, even under game load. Also, I am not 100% sure I will be able to fit the front fans/rad/pump without a bit of case modification, but it should just fit based off some measurements I got from a S2 owner. The front opening should be about 170-175mm, and after adding all of my parts up, 60 for rad, 25 for fans, and I believe 76 for the D5 pump from EK, it should just fit. I will 3D print a mount for the pump as it wouldn't fit mounted to the rad like normal. It will need to be right up against the rad. First part showed up yesterday, everything else should be in today. Let the build commence!

    New Case Time!

    I got in touch with a guy on reddit who was able to get me some measurements. It looks like the removable opening in the front of the PSU shroud is about 175mm, which, until tomorrow night when I will be at my PC to perfectly measure... should work. 60mm rad + 25mm fan thickness + 78mm pump = 163mm lol. Its close, but may just fit without modification! If its really that close tho, even if it doesn't fit I can dremel the PSU shroud a bit with a nice little rubber molding strip to make it look fine. So we should be ok, but I will know for sure hopefully in a few weeks once all the parts show up.

    New Case Time!

    Hey guys, I am finally looking to get a new case. I have had my 350d for a while and its been great, but I am about to change up the rig and want to change up the radiator situation. Just trying to get good ideas and inspiration for a case that is water cooling friendly, I love a dead silent PC, and water is the way to get there. I am thinking of doing a triple top rad and retaining my UT60 280 rad in the front of the case. The UT60 is a thick boi, so I am not 100% sure this will work out, but I would like this to be the outcome. I would change the entire system up with a new water block and pump, instead of the combo unit I have now... Also, full ATX required. Thanks for the idea!!!!

    New Case Time!

    I may not be opposed to that, but then the filter won’t be present anymore, correct? Maybe? I guess I could always just sell my 60mm 280 and pick up a thinner one. But that’s sort of annoying lol.

    Hhhhmmmmmmmm. This may not work how I want it to...

    New Case Time!

    I really want the 420 to work, but boy o boy, I have no idea if it will. Also the front 60mm.... that may not be possible either lol. I am handy with a dremel but I would rather not do that.

    New Case Time!

    Thanks man. Ordered an S2, a Alphacool XT45 for the top, 3 NF-A14 fans, EKD5/res combo, and the 2080 water block for the 2080 I just picked up for a steal.... So, the plan, assuming it all fits, my current UT60 up front, XT45 up top, and that should be beyond phenomenal cooling. I will also be swapping my 8700k @5ghz into this PC, long story short but I haven't cared enough to do that. I have a 8700k with a 1070 at my parents house (spend some weekends with them, so build a machine to game there), but I will be moving farther away and won't need that... so the 8700k and 2080 will pair pretty damn well together! Thanks for the advice, that should work out perfectly!!!

    CPU over heating

    Glad you got it figured out!

    CPU over heating

    I don't understand how its moving around so much... something seems to be wrong. But, at least its cooler i suppose. Seems weird, it shouldn't fluctuate that much.

    CPU over heating

    Since your just worried about CPU temps, no reason to run heaven. 5-10 mins should be plenty.... What temps is it showing right now after a few minutes?
  21. LIGISTX

    CPU over heating

    Go to Tools, and use system stability test. And then just press start, defaults are fine.

    CPU over heating

    Thats still a pretty hot CPU for being stock, but... that is likely "ok". Depending on which version of Prime95, it could be slamming it with to much load, I would maybe try and download AIDA64 and run that stress test instead as it has shown to be more "normal".

    Help with overclocking

    Yea, this is correct. I would google the motherboard you have (or at least the manufacturer as usually each manufacturer has different settings that are known to be "correct overclocking LLC settings" to see what yours should be. Basically, to explain what is happening, when you hit the CPU with a load you get what is called vdroop, the voltage drops due to the load being applied. LLC helps combat that, when it senses a large load, it applies more volts to try and compensate.

    CPU over heating

    I am not sure I believe that, or, well, I am not sure its working correctly. It should be under clocking and under volting at idle.... Obviously the PC I am on right now isn't the same as you, I am on my 8700k @ 5 GHZ PC (not even in my sig), but right now at idle its running anywhere from .808-1.256 ish volts and it fluctuates a lot according to CPU Z and HW Info. Something just doesn't sound quite right is all. I would double check BIOS, and maybe just clear CMOS as I have seen that help things for me before.

    CPU over heating

    No real way to test beyond trying to see if you can feel it running, or hear it. But, if you can idle at 30c for a while, the pump has to be running, if it wasn't the water in the block would just get super heated, so, likely this isn't the issue anyways I suppose.
