  1. I spotted a comment on Floatplane of someone saying they don’t feel they’re getting a compelling value out of Floatplane. I took a moment to explain what the state of Floatplane is right now, with it in beta and made a guess about the stuff the team is prioritising. I mentioned that we’re on Floatplane to support the journey, and LMG and that creature comforts would come in due course. However it got me thinking; as a developer I was about to start my own vessel competitior at their, demise shall we call it, until I noticed Luke and the team step forward to create their own here on the forum. I’m really excited to see the platform grow, so I was wondering if you were going to do a blog, public trello roadmap (google that) or maybe a bit more info during wan show on what you’re working on and what we can expect to see. Even simply saying “you won’t see much this week, I’m sorry. But we’re working on launching this cool new protocol to help load balancing and we’ve got to port everything over” would be sweet - but I have a soft spot for the details. Anyway just some thoughts. Doing a fantastic job as always and I’m really excited! ~Gergy (P.S. iOS app with chromecast for #1 priority on user features ?) #firepole #nevertoolate
  2. Check all your power connections and make sure the PSU switch is on
  3. I seem to be closer to solving this - I updated the BIOS to F7 (Board shipped with F4), and setup the fans to full speed in the bios. I then saved the profile in the bios, then saved and restarted and it seems to be working (or now) If you don't hear from me again, then that's fixed it for me and if anyone else has this issue I'd recommend these as a start.
  4. If that’s what worked - there’s something wrong with the button itself, the leads or the way it was connected. At least your board is good!
  5. Can you try bridging the pins for the power switch with something metal?
  6. What motherboard did you choose? Just curious.
  7. I noticed that, I built a PC yesterday and even on standby most modern gaming motherboards will power peripherals - strangely enough I'm leaning more on the side of the power button not working correctly than the 24 pin not seated correctly though
  8. I'm not an expert on these style of motherboards but I think a great place to start would be to keep using the onboard for now, boot into BIOS and look for any settings that enable external graphics or that kind of nature.
  9. 100% sure that's the standby light When you press the power button does any of the fans spin? Does it light up any differently, or does it just sit there and do nothing? At this stage I would check that the 24 pin power is seated properly and you connected the Front Panel Power button correctly.
  10. It won't boot into bios if it fails post. But, resetting the bios can help with issues relating to post. More than a few times this method has saved me.
  11. Maybe the orange is both red and yellow at the same time - indicating an issue with RAM and CPU. If the CPU is seated correctly, and the RAM is too, reset the bios and see if that solves the issue. Also try removing the RAM on it's own and see how it kicks off without any sticks present at all Section in the motherboard manual for all to see:
  12. To the average person, one will see increased RAM usage in applications like chrome, as far as I've heard.
  13. Hello all, Build a PC for a friend. I'm using a Gigabyte Z370 AORUS gaming 3 motherboard with Corsair's H100i V2 cooler. I'm having issues with the voltage for the AIO however - Each restart of the PC causes the CPU Fan header to go into smart mode - when if should be on 100% all the time (I use Corsair iCue to control the speeds of the pump & fans) On every boot, I have to go into the Gigabyte app center, open SIV and set the fan speed manually to 100% Fixed mode. How can I made it so that eveery time the PC starts - the CPU Fan header is set to 100%? Kind Regards and many thanks in advance, Gergy
