    Did my mobo die?

    They seem fine. Didn't see any bent pins

    Did my mobo die?

    I took my computer apart to install a new cooler and took the CPU out of the socket too just to show my sister what it looks like. I put everything back normally and now my PC won't turn on. The motherboard seems dead. I placed it on a bed for like a minute, but I didn't feel a shock when I picked it up. PSU should be fine, I grounded the green wire and the PSU fan started spinning and HDD fired up. I have 2x4GB ram sticks in my PC, I tried both of them in both slots, still nothing. Tried shorting the power on switch pins and nothing. I don't have a speaker with me to test for post codes, but the motherboard does NOTHING. I had everything plugged in, GPU seated correctly, fans, CPU power, GPU power, SATA, everything. Still nothing. Just now I tried with only the CPU, RAM and the PSU and nothing. I'm super anxious if I fucked my motherboard, it's Z370 so upgradability is great on it. Wouldn't want to lose it.

    How Many Computers Do You Have?

    Three bootable desktops, one that doesn't, one laptop without a hard drive and last one is my Asus laptop. Five phones, out of which 3 work properly. One goes into a bootloop and one has a dead screen. No tablets.
  4. I convinced my parents to get me a better network by finding a deal that's cheaper than my current one and also faster at the same time. Went from 50Mbps to 100Mbps and saved ~5€/month in the process. Here you can also get a prepaid SIM with unlimited 100Mbps 4G at 20€/month so that would be an option too. Just stick it into some old Android phone and use it as a hotspot.

    Any game like Crash Team Racing?

    Probably new Mario Karts and the Crash Nitro Kart.
  6. Your PC should run all of those games except Wildlands over 60fps at decent enough settings. My i5 4460 did so with a 970. What are your temperatures in games? Install HWMonito and play a game, once it starts lagging check if your cpu or gpu are going 100% and if they are too hot.

    773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

    None of my in-use emails were on the list so I'm on the good side. On the other hand, my two in-use emails have both been pwned in the same breach. Also both my sister and my mother have been in the Adobe leak so yeah.

    Old Compaq turns on but no video output

    Yeah I've been reading about the PC. Indeed, it is an Asus A7N8X Deluxe with a AMD Athlon 2400+ and ATI R6 graphics card rocking a whopping 1GB of ram. I had no idea it was custom built though, but my parents had a friend that knew about computers a lot so it was presumably him. I've taken the PC apart now but an another problem I have with this thing now is that there are no holes for case fans. One fan was attached to the back with some kind of a plastic clip and there are two more on the front of the case and I'm wondering if it's possible to get these plastic adapters anywhere. I thought I'd take a look at LTTs sleeper build and noticed that the case indeed looks very similar. Sadly they didn't even use normal fans but a custom-loop so the video wasn't of much help. Can these "adapters" be bought from ebay?
  9. My parents had an old Compaq back in the early 2000s that I used to play games with. It had been lying around for quite some time in our storage room and today I thought I'd repurpose the case and make it into a sleeper build by taking out the old components and putting in new. Just now I tried turning it on and accessing BIOS, only to realize that my Philips monitor was telling me that there is no video signal and it will go into sleep mode. I tried turning it on and off again and reset CMOS but neither of those helped. The Compaq has an external GPU with a VGA port, S-VID out and two composite connectors, also two USB-A's and a longer yellow serial port.. I remember turning it on and accessing Windows XP a couple of years back. It COULD be an another PC, but I think it was this one. I used an old Nokia CRT monitor back then with VGA connection too, so I took it out and tried that too. Same thing, no video. The PC turns on fine and probably even goes into whatever OS is in one of those two HDDs the computer has eaten. They make a horrible sound, but the storage LED flashes for a while when turning the PC on. How should I troubleshoot this? The motherboard has a male serial connector. There is also a purple long female serial port. Sadly we don't have cables like that and presumably have only used VGA since the Nokia monitor comes with one soldered in. Another thing that I'm interested in is how expensive this PC presumably was back then and how powerful it was. The GPU doesn't seem to be anything great, but the case is a Compaq Outside full-tower and the PC has akasa sound cancellation foam inside. Seems like a higher end PC. I'd like to boot into a live usb to check the specifications of this machine for more accurate estimations. The PSU is also an "Enermax model EG465AX-VE" that says it's total power is 433W. EDIT: The two HDDs inside are a 61.5GB 7200RPM IBM Deskstar and a 164.7GB 7200RPM IBM Deskstar and are from 2002 https://imgur.com/a/9nLx1dQ
  10. I didn't exactly time it when I built my PC, but it took prob 30-45 minutes I'd guess. I didn't tuck my cables anywhere though, so cable management will lengthen the process somewhat. Would've taken an hour or more with cable management.

    What games are a must play ?

    With official I meant that Insomniac is selling their products on that specific platform. They aren't selling Ratchet and Clank for PC, they are selling it for playstation. Sure, it runs on PC, but it's not MEANT for it.

    Whats with the obsession with LEDS

    Because maybe I don't want to be a show-off, maybe I don't want people to see my intel stock cooler or my half-assed cable management? Cable management depends on the case, but I don't think a dusty intel cooler and fan wires hanging on the GPU are attractive. I prefer windowless cases and cheaper cases have usually worse materials, worse cable management and worse upgradability. This is a fact for both windowed and windowless cases.

    How 'OLD' is your pc?

    My PC is a mix of 2014 and 2018. 970, an older SSD and HDD with upgraded CPU, RAM and motherboard. I don't think it's brand new but it sure isn't old either. Oh, and the case is from 2011, so there's that.

    Whats with the obsession with LEDS

    I've been looking for a new case to replace my current Elite 310 and noticed that probably like 70% of the cheaper cases are windowed. Really makes me feel bad that I have to pay 120€ to get a quality windowless case from Fractal Design. I don't think LEDs are necessarily a bad thing, my 970 and motherboard both have LEDs on them and they aren't very disruptive. My case has no windows, but I thought it looked rather dull so I put a chinese 5050 RGB strip that I had lying around and I do think it made the PC look a bit more modern.

    Gtx 980ti

    Thought that 970 has about the same performance as 1060, not 980... https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare/GeForce-GTX-970-vs-GeForce-GTX-1060-vs-GeForce-GTX-980/2954vs3548vs2953
