  1. Hmm, have you tried using other keys to get into the bios, like F2? it could also be your keyboard, I had an issue with my K70 where when I used my I7 6700k and Z270 board, the keyboard didnt initialise until AFTER the start to boot into windows, may trying a cheap different keyboard might help.
  2. Take out the drives and the graphics card, I believe the 4790k has integrated graphics, you might be able to use that to find the issue

    It's not gonna happen dude, unless you find something extremely cheap used, the best new card you will get for 100AUD is an HD6450
  4. I only said, I PERSONALLY wouldnt suggest it for INITIAL troubleshooting FOR SOMEONE NEW, but thats not to say it isnt an option they have. I'm not trying to argue that this isnt a normal thing to do, it is. It's just that in my experience, ive found that when you suggest these things to people especially those with little PC experience, they are reluctant to do them in fear they may mess up, which is why I refrain from suggesting it till they have gone through the easy stuff first. I would have eventually suggested it, but not as a first thing.
  5. You can see a difference, the human eye doesnt see in Hz, that argument has been debunked multiple times. You can even see tests done by LTT themselves which prove higher refresh rates matter
  6. I would say get for a NEW BUILD, AMD, it has better overall performance and the lower end 3rd gen R3s are actually really good. If you are going used, then older Intel chips are pretty easy to find, you can even get decent dell pcs on ebay for cheap with decent i5s, just be careful if you do get one of those PCs is to make sure you can replace the PSU since the one it comes with is usually only around 300W
  7. On my Asus board, there is an option in the bios to change the amount of wait time to check for key pressing. It might be in a different location on your board since mine is a B550 board. But it should be somewhere in there.
  8. Those clips are common for higher end psus, mine came with one too, but that isnt always the case. It might be obvious for you and me where we have more experience, but when I try and help those on here, I try and keep the troubleshooting steps simple to make it easier for those who potentially dont have as much experience. Telling someone to use a paperclip in a power supply might be a bit scary for someone who has no experience with PC troubleshooting, so leaving that out is usually what I do.
  9. I know thats an option, but if they short the wrong pins, they could damage their psu. didnt want to suggest something like that. But you are right, that is an option to test the psu and get the list of possible shorts down to the cpu and motherbaord
  10. The clicking noise from the power supply indicates there is probably a short in the system. Best thing to do is connect only the nessesary components, these being a single ram stick, a single drive, cpu, motherboard and psu. Then test that. if that doesnt work, try the other ram stick, still not working then try the other drive, if this still doenst work, then try without the gpu, if that doesnt work, then it is either the cpu, mobo or power supply, which you can only test if you have spares of each.
  11. Try changing your DNS settings, go into your routers settings and change the DNS to either the Google DNS, those being -Primary - -Secondary- Or use Cloudflare -Primary - -Secondary -
  12. Could be the motherboard, but the only way to test that would be getting another board. Sadly something like this where there are no clear indications is harder to diagnose.
  13. I would suggest remounting the cooler, I moved to a 3700x yesterday and 1 screw wasnt tightened enough, it mostly touched the cpu but not enough
  14. 10-13 seconds is fine
  15. Hi, so I own an NZXT Kraken M22, I however lost the AMD mounting kit, I tried asking NZXT themselves but they are out of stock, I also tried ebay but couldn't find anything. I'm not sure if this is allowed but if anyone has the M22 and the AMD mounting bracket I would happily buy it and shipping. If this is not allowed to ask, I will take this down, I just don't know what to do since I now have a cooler doing nothing. If you cant send them, I do own 3D printers, so a top down photo of the AMD bracket would also be massively appreciated The plate I am reffering to, is below.
