  1. Thank you very much for you help, just one more question can I use the Ryzen 3 3200G instead of the 2200G on this setup? The price difference is only 10€
  2. Hey I am looking foward to build a couple of cheap PCs for my work office, They will basacly open emails, run microsoft office and pdfs file. I never built a PC with AMD CPU, can you guys give me your opinions on this? Should I change something? PCPartpicker List
  3. So guys I have a SSD "C:" with windows and a HDD "D:" where I install the games and some apps. I am going to replace the HDD with a new SSD. So since this is not the boot device can I just plug the new SSD copy paste all data from D: then remove the HDD and change the new SSD letter to "D:" and will Windows boots my games like nothing happen? Or do I need those software to do sector by sector clone like it was the boot device? Thanks in advance
  4. I made tests they noise is from the fans, special when the speed is not constant... that noise accelerating is horrible. These fans reach up to 2k rpm wont I loose performance installing a 1.5k rpms fans like those NF A14s? or the ML140s?
  5. So hey guys, I have a Corsair H110i GT water cooling on my PC and its great but the stock fans make so much noise. I dont know much about fans so can anyone here tell me a good pair of fans to replace them?
  6. I did a clean install of GTX1070 drivers, updated the MSI Gaming APP and updated the BIOS. I have played twice and no crashes... I hope they wont come back
  7. Hey guys, first here's my setup: X_Splinter RIG I built it like 2 months ago and I had this happening once until now. In 1 hour of playing Battlefiled 1 the PC frooze 3 times. Image stops, audio makes a constant noise the lights on the my MSI Gaming GTX 1070 turn off and my PC doesn't respond. Solution is to unplug the power (not even hardware buttons work). I have been playing this game with no problems until now, on theis last freeze the CPU was at 39 ºC and the GPU at 71ºC which is think its normal. Any idea how can troubleshoot this? I find strange that the GPU lights go off while everything stands on
  8. Confirmed... Got my replacement motherboard and now everything is working... And what an awesome machine...
  9. I have the M7 (it was cheaper than the M5) has great audio and looks great. Other than that no big difference
  10. Update: Well I took to a PC repair shop and today they tested it: CPU fine, Ram fine, PSU fine... Motherboard dead I feel stupid I did everything right it was obvious it was dead but anyway, Amazon will replace in 2 days. I hope to have my new rig running next week
  11. Having the radiator as intake will make hot air enter the case as it passes the radiator. Kept the radiator as it is on top as exhaust. The way you have your system is perfect in airflow... It enters in the front to the board and exists in the rear and top. 140mm fans run more silent then 120mm, also kept in mind extra fans wont improve the temp. as much as people tend to think
  12. Thanks, I also checked 2 posts in the french msi forum with similar situation, one had a CPU installed incorrectly the other had a bricked board. I am sure my CPU is perfectly installed, I even followed a video... I am thinking in passing on a PC store and ask if they can test my CPU on different board and all.
  13. Absolutely positive... this is blowing my mind. Got be the motherboard that is dead, if so this will be the first i bought some major peace DOA
  14. Hey guys, I reseated the cooler and CPU 3 times now and it's not working. The board stays on but with code 00 (no image, no beeps). I did not check before the case but since it stays on I assume there is no interference Here's my part list: http://fr.pcpartpicker.com/user/X_Splinter/saved/sd48dC I am almost desperate, I am considering taking the rig a pc store to see if they could check it using another CPU or something
  15. Hey guys, yesterday I finish mounting my PC, everything is new. Motherboard is MSI gaming M7 Z170A When on everything is powered on ok but the board never start the bios, it's shows the error code 00 on the board. Thats number that doesnt exist and after hours of googling most people that had this error either had cpu pin bended or a bricked board. I tried all troubleshooting: Removing everything, testing ram on diferent slots, removing the baterry... you name it Now I removed my corsair water cooler and removed the CPU and I dont see any bents. I reinstalled it again and it still no bios post, error 00 Should I return my motherboard to Amazon and request another? This is so frustrating, everything new and it doesnt work
