  1. Its the TR2 S series of PSUs. The model number is TRS-0500P-2
  2. I have a pretty respectable backup PC but recently its 650W 80+ gold unit went bad. Now due to the on going pandemic I don't know how long it would take to get a new unit. I had a 500W Thermaltake PSU and was wondering if that would suffice my setup. My Setup is: i7 8700K 16Gb Ripjaws 5 MSI GTX 1080 500GB SSD 1TB WD Blue AIO Liquid Cooler I have RGB fans which came with the case and the liquid cooler and no external RGB strips or controllers.
  3. In today's vod linus refers to Alex's office in the Hacksmith Industries, has Alex left LTT for Hacksmith industries or that Alex is different?
  4. I gave my LTT name and folding name on the Google forms page but I still haven't received the key yet. It's been about 5 days now.
  5. Doesn't say although after this accident with my psi I switched from Cooler Master to Seasonic and never been happier....
  6. I really don't know what to say right now but I can just warn you to maybe try using the system on a different psu to diagnose the issue. In my case at first my pc powering on then instantly powering off and then repowering on... were rare but as time progressed they became more common. So this is the only thing that comes to my mind. I was lucky and all py stuff was in warranty so got everything replaced for free.
  7. It took about 6 months and it fried it part by part first was just the Mobo then when I installed a new mobo it turned out cpu was dead too then waited for a new one to arrive then the second time all three things got fried. My psu was not a bad one too it was from cooler master.
  8. Mine did too it was just at startup. Which led to such major damage
  9. It is a PSU issue and this might not show up as easily in diagnostics but it can cause many other problems down the line. I fried 2Mobos 2 CPUs and a set of ram after which the psu finally gave up.
  10. Similar issue occurred to me. It was a long chain of events which fried 2 motherboards 2 CPUs, 1 set of Ram. It was later discovered that the whole problem was caused due to a faulty power supply. The issue was at first one restart every 7-9 power ups. Later it escalated to every 2 power ups at the end it stopped to power up. On diagnosis it turned out the cpu was gone. Got the cpu RMAed. Powered the PC everything worked fine for like a week. Then same problem occurred this time everything fried. After replacing everything and waiting for about 2 months for everything to be RMAed. It worked fine for 2 months without any issue but the same problem occurred finally, the psu gave up. Since then it has been 1.5 years without any issues. So my recommendation would be to use a different psu to diagnose and stress test restart a few dozen times. If the problem still occurs then it maybe some other part although highly unlikely.
  11. What is this ssd lmg guys are using. I remember this from their sponsor spots but can't find it anymore. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. My main motive is to get a low profile switch keyboard. If it's wireless it's just an advantage. I am not buying it for the purpose of it being wireless
  13. I have been using a custom cherry red wired keyboard for about 4 and a half years now... But I am still not that used to the high profile keys I have tried a thinner body wrist rest everything but it just isn't my fancy. So I thought of getting a low profile wired and wireless keyboard with linear switches. I was hoping for some advice on a good one which is not too overly expensive 100-120$ max. I came across keychron K1 they seems nice what are your thoughts and any suggestions apart from keychron. Thanks in advance
  14. If there isn't a rgb header return it. Because to control it there should be one. And even if it is like a self lit one like no user control etc then it should out right work if you connect it to molex. So your fan is busted
  15. I would wait for a bit before selling because due to the medical conditions.... Prices might go up... In some parts of the world prices are already ramping up. So I would say wait till GDC maybe another 15 days more after that and then sell because resale value of card will be more due to price hikes.
  16. Make sure all the thermal pads are properly placed and ensure that the screws are not over tightened, doing so will flex the board and make it so that the die doesn't make proper contact with the heat sink. Also see if you have connected all the fan cables properly
  17. Doesn't Quinn from snazzy labs look like Doug Demouro and Luke(in his old vods)....
  18. Just take the mobo and cpu rest they will see its not that uncommon for people to show up like that
  19. Well you can check if all your hardware is good by using your older pc and putting the parts on it. Most probably this is an issue related to the cpu or motherboard as mentioned above by others. Try reseating the CPU the motherboard ain't that old so you might not need the bios update. If it still doesn't post then you can take it to a nearby computer shop. And ask them to check it for you they can also update the bios for a small fee.
  20. No just running the computer in general
  21. Because I too live in India(I am a student, travel from Canada to India every year) and I have used both the laptops when I was planning to get one for myself. But I jumped the gun and went and got a MacBook 16inch because I already have a very capable windows system.
  22. Get a 1660ti and you will be good. Hackintosh I won't touch given you are asking about what is to use. I would go either Ubuntu or lame old windows
  23. That maybe due to a bad hdmi... If the problem continues try using your pc without your graphics card.
