  1. Thanks for the replies. It doesn't really work out badly since i bought it so cheap
  2. I don't see evidence of burn damage that I'd expect (i should've taken a before photo) but the metal connector was kinda pushed to the side. I tried the power supply with a mobo that only needs a 4 pin and the psu worked with the other side of the connector. I don't know what to think
  3. It's not actually burned but some of the metal and plastic has been damaged
  4. I bought a used CX750M and intend to use it in my i7 6700k/z270 system. I noticed that the one metal connector bit was crushed (as if someone jammed something in there) so I moved into a position where it fits into the motherboard. I'm just wondering if it's a bad idea to try and use the power supply like this. Thanks, Simeon
  5. I have a Vega 56 in my system and am wondering which PSU would be better to use? -CX600 green unit -CX450M grey unit I have both of these on hand and I'm not buying a new PSU. Specs: i7 6700K @ 1.3V 2x8GB DDR4 2133Mhz Red Dragon Vega 56 CX450M 2015 Just a quick question, thanks for reading.
  6. My bad, I can't return it as I didn't buy it new myself. EDIT: I could try and get a replacement from ASUS but i don't know how well that would go..
  7. This motherboard was new but damaged in shipping. The CPU pins are all good and I cannot see any damage other than that to the corner. The board is slightly bent but there are no cracks in the board. It looks like it has broken a trace. I used my i7 6700k to test the board. The CPU was fully working before and after testing the board. When turned on, it gave the error 00. When I pressed CMOS reset it gave the code 13 and the CPU diag LED shone blue. I can only assume that this is due to the damage pictured yet I haven't tried to BIOS flash it. I would be surprised if the corner is the root cause, yet I would appreciate any advice if it is fixable. Thanks ?
  8. Is there any way to mod the bios/make all instructions recognised on the intel motherboard? I can only boot windows 7 right now and I have the latest BIOS (0017) with 4gb ddr2 800mhz. I have - (MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, EM64T) Thanks in advance, Simi
  9. I have two sticks of DDR4, one Samsung and one Crucial running in dual-channel and taking reference from i should be able to overclock it using the OC tweaker feature. I'm just wondering if it's possible as the non-z OC feature doesnt show up in the BIOS. Thanks in advance and sorry to be a nonce, Simi
  10. https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7924/cooler-master-masterair-pro-4-cpu-review/index6.html The MasterAir Pro 4 seems much quieter than the 212 and is said to generally perform better so would that be the better choice? I ended up buying the MasterAir and the temps are much better plus i cant hear it
  11. Hey, I have an i7 6700k system i built last year, current stuff: i7 6700k H110M GTX 960 Corsair 330R Titanium I own an Arctic Alpine 11 Pro Rev.2 which idles in the 20's but can get a little hot while gaming and when i ran intelburntest the temps were worrying (85+) but it is generally dead silent and that is very nice.. I have 3 options I've narrowed down to really which are the MasterAir Pro 4 - £25 Hyper 212 Evo - £24 Pure Rock Slim - £20 What would be the best idea or should I not upgrade? Thanks in advance
  12. How do they compare in games on the older hardware?
  13. I'm trying to help my friend out with upgrading his PC (Advent T9610) to Windows 10 from Vista Q6600 GTX 750ti 5gb RAM.. Is there any way of updating directly to Windows 10 without losing any data or should I just make him backup the data on an SD and create a bootable usb? Thanks in advance
