  1. Quick update to hopefully help someone in the future. I found the problem... Recap of what was going on: Mobo lights would stay on even if the PSU is unplugged Would restart every shut down attempt once off for a few seconds Strange LED issues on the motherboard Trouble booting Noise in speakers Surge protection from motherboard tripping on boot The solution happens to be replacing the Displayport cable. Both of my Amazon displayport cables were backfeeding powering from the monitor into my system and causing a surge of some kind. Replaced both cables with the ones provided with the monitors and problems solved. How incredibly weird is that?
  2. I have an EKWB custom loop for cooling. I am having tons of problems with the computer turning back when I turn it off, not posting at all in some cases, and issues with "surge" protections being tripped on the mobo. I also have a weird issue where the computer will pull power from any cable connected to it (display port) and feed the mobo lights when unplugged from the wall. I did a fresh installation of windows and because the Asus website was down I used windows update to install everything. I'm at the point where I wanna say screw it and throw some new hardware at it.
  3. So I have an ASUS Maximus VIII Hero motherboard that I'm less than thrilled with (other components in sig). I'm starting to think the motherboard is going bad and now I'm in need of a new one. I'm not upgrading the cpu. Which board would you recommend? I've been an advocate for ASUS products over the years but their support web page is garbage. Half the time their download site is down. My only prerequisites I can think of would be a USB c header on mobo for my case and an m.2 pcie slot. More USB slots on the i/o wouldn't be bad either. Thank you all
  4. If you're looking to actually play games on it good luck. Had it for a week and took it back.
  5. Sounds like backlight bleed. Asus monitors have bad QC problems. That monitor should have Rapid Replacement so try and use it. Good luck its gonna be hard.
  6. Steelseries works this way. Send in faulty product and they credit you full MSRP for anything in their store. Advanced Replacement through Asus is similar but not good. They send you the product first after putting a hold on your credit card and when they receive the broken unit back in their packaging they refund the amount. The problem is they go months without stock on most things.
  7. The code led display comes on to 00, hdd lights, ROG effects, and start rest button on bottom all come on and won't turn off. 24 pin is out, cpu power out. Gpu power out also and some of the lights go off when I unplug the display port cables. I got it to boot but now it's telling me surge protection but I was under the impression Asus boards did that often. I'm running off a UPC
  8. Quick update, unplugged the DP Monitor cables and the mobo lights turned off. Still no boot or response unless graphics card plugged in
  9. Incredibly odd computer problem. If I turn off and unplug my computer on next boot the motherboard lights and graphics card lights are on but won't respond to power button. Here's the weird part: all the power is unhooked and the battery is out. Where am I getting power from and why can't I turn off the mobo? Is this whats causing the computer not to boot?
  10. If you find out you'll probably be the first. I've heard a million different things through youtube and sites. An Asus guy on the ROG forum had a nice write up but it didnt work as expected.
  11. I just bought the Corsair Obsidian 500D and its probably the best case I've owned. Good airflow and great build quality while also looking great.
  12. The 6P is trash. I tried my hardest to defend it but at the end it was slow as balls and started bending at the volume buttons like everyone elses. Try and find a good s7 or any of the Pixel phones. I also really liked the LG G series.
  13. Egg on your face. Anyway, OP, you'd be better off getting the case specific to the model but you might get lucky if you try it.
  14. The knob controls voice and game sounds and the bias from one to the other. In the middle at the marker its balanced but when shifted to one side it'll be more focused on that icon. I advise not to use the surround sound as its garbage. Make sure in your sound settings you also have the correct communication devices selected.
