    Windows 10 deactivated after moving hard drive.

    You need to re-activate Windows. The key is tied to the motherboard, so if you switch motherboards(assuming you didn't link Windows to your Microsoft account), you'll have to reactivate it. If you did link the account, then you just have to wait a bit and it'll activate itself eventually.

    Ram overclock freezing

    Try toning the overclock down a bit and see if that solves the problem.

    Whats best monitor for competitive

    There's no point in either one if your system can consistently push that refresh rate, otherwise normal vsync will be fine.
  4. Factory clock speed, and I believe they have different stock coolers as well.

    More shockingly, you're still here.

    General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    Beginning to more seriously look at higher end X58 hardware. I'd like to get a couple 6 cores and do an X58 sleeper mod in my Powermac G5 case. I've found out that aforementioned Powermac doesn't want to work(likely needs a new mainboard, more money than I want to invest in it and more work than I wanna do), so I'll probably end up selling the video card and PSU for it to make a bit of cash(because I won't have a use for those parts). I'll have to gut the inside and do a bunch of stuff to make the G5 case accept a standard ATX power supply, but I'm fairly confident I can make it work(as long as a dual CPU X58 board isn't too long).

    Performance evaluation for i5 7400

    I'm hoping to make a jump for Ryzen 3xxx this year as well, gonna repurpose my current rig as a streaming box/gaming PC for when friends come over. Intel's lack of innovation goes way beyond the 7400, a 2600K isn't that much worse than an 8700K.

    You'll need one in order to make a Windows install disk.

    Ram not detected after clearing cmos

    What are your full specs?

    Performance evaluation for i5 7400

    I would argue that the i5-7400 also isn't that good of a CPU, which may or may not effect the outcome. Something better such as a 7700K would yield better results, I'm sure.

    What about the Asus VG248QE? It's an older model, but it's usually right around that price.
  14. Grey or green label CXM? In terms of wattage, that unit will suffice. I'm not 100% sure about quality, though.

    Fx 8350 bottlenecks the rx 2060

    -Thread cleaned- Come on people, let's remain civil and on-topic here.

    No more games :(

    I would guess the GPU is going, judging by the presence of the BSOD in addition to the BSOD being, in fact, green.

    Favourite Jelly/Preserve?

    I tried Winterberry for the first time this year, and I'm very impressed.

    As far as I know, it's just HDDs.

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    In a bit, I'll see if I can get some pictures of my unfortunately dead Powermac G5.

    You need a Ryzen upgrade, probably should save up a couple hundred dollars.

    What platform do you do most of your posting on?

    PC. I'll handle Reddit from my phone, but I'm not really posting or commenting there often enough for it to count imo

    You're getting the hammer. Any last words?

      I wanna do a mod in the case, it's been something I've wanted to do for a while(modding and building one in this tower, specifically).

      Well the video cards are certianly worth something then.

      I figure if I get lucky and find someone with a G5 that wants spare parts/needs new ones, I can at least offer up the video cards and PSU for them.


      On a much lighter note, that PSU works. It's only a 350W model, but I should be able to drive one my Athlon 64 systems and a dGPU with it.

    New PC Build failing. If you figure this out I will let you...

    That "GeForce RTX" should be lit up on the GPU. Does your 1080Ti have any lights on it? Do those light up in the Ryzen system? Are fans spinning in the picture you posted above, or are just the lights on? Have you tried a different PSU on this system? What PSUs do you have? Have you tried removing the CMOS battery entirely? Are you 100% sure your memory works?
