  1. The 3 pin connectors on my motherboard can either be 5 or 12 v, controlled by a jumper. Anyways, I just took a chance and plugged it in and it is working, so all is good.
  2. I have a Gigabyte Aorus Elite B450 motherboard and I have a kit of three Cooler Master Masterfans MF 120R (in a kit) with a controller, and a fourth loose one.My end goal is to get these connected and synced with the lighting on the motherboard, and so my questions are:The fan controller supports pass through with Gigabyte’s RGB fusion. It comes with the a three pin connector (as wide as Four pins but one with one of them blanked out)There are two matching headers named V DG on the motherboard with jumpers enabling you to chose between 5 and 12 volts.Question one- can I connect the controller to the V DG header directly and expect it to sync up - and do I set it to 5V or 12 V?Question two- Can I connect the fourth fan directly to the second V DG header and do I set it to 5 or 12 V?I should mention, that my wife three away the documentation by mistake, which would probably have made my life a fair bit easier.
  3. Hi Quick question. I have a Corsair CX550M PSU. I have a Palit Geforce 1060 3GB GPU. Rest of the system in the description. Anyway. I want to know if it is okay to power my GPU with the following old molex-6 pin pci-e adapter that I am attaching a photo of. The PSU does come with a dual 6+2 pci e power connectors, but for visual reasons = as little cables in a small case as possible, I have used the above. Everything is running fine like this, but: Can it damage the GPU in the long run? I read something about rails having to be utilized properly. It is also for obvious reasons, connected through the SATA/Periphial port on the PSU, not the PCI-e one. The adapter came from an old PC from 2008. (This used to power a GTX 260!!) Does this matter? Do cables get "too old" ? I also noticed that there are only five wires on this adapter, as opposed to six on the one that came with the PSU. Does it affect the lifetime of the GPU? Like I said, everything is working fine with this setup, and I intend to keep it this way if it is good to go.
  4. Just picked up a new SSD for my laptop, old one did simply not have enough space (great deal at local warehouse). WIth the old drive everything was fine from first boot. On this new one I'm having an issue with TRIM apparently not working according to the trimcheck tool. I have veryfied that I'm using the correct driver, and have re-installed WIndows three times and tried with different driver versions. Nothing seems to be helping. This is a fresh Windows install, not a clone from the old drive. I'm not reinstalling Windows again, new drive should last a while now, won't abuse it with unnessescary writes. fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify gives a result of 0. Drive in question is a Toshiba A100 120GB. If anybody has a clue what might be wrong, I'd be happy to hear. Thanks. Nyt bitmapbillede (2).bmp Nyt bitmapbillede.bmp
  5. I have the i3 6320 which is pretty much the same, just with more cache and clockspeed. Honestly very satisfied. However not very futureproof as more and more games will utilize quadcore or more.
  6. Unfortunately not, I do not have any new cooling paste at hand, but I have simply decided to go ahead and use it as is. No problems so far.
  7. Hey guys, in need of a little advice here. I recently changed out the motherboard in my main PC as I had the need for a full sized ATX board (more pci slots), which again left me with a spare H110 micro-atx board. The thing is, I had some problems trying to re-seat the CPU socket cover on the board, well in fact, I didn't succeed at all, and I had some horrible "plastic on metal"-ish sounds. Now I am worried that I might have bent some of the pins in the CPU socket. Now, this is a very cheap board, so if it's broken it's broken, but I was planning to use it for a small home server, so I would be pleased to have it in working order. So, does everything here look right to you? I simply cannot decide, especially down in the lower right corner. And another question. The motherboard is currently mounted inside a case, but without the protective cover that I dare not try to put in place anymore. Am I fine leaving it exposed, provided that I dust it off thoroughly before mounting a processor in there? Thanks so much, in advance.
  8. Well I simply installed the cooler with push-pins following the instructions from the vendor. You just click it into place
  9. Thanks a lot, less worried now.. More time to enjoy my system then!
  10. Well let me tell you this... It sure does like when you put some male plugs into it's female connectors if you know what I mean
  11. Hello guys, new on the forum here. Just finished my new budget build recently, of which I am very pleased. Today, however, when I took the PC apart to check for something entirely else (my PCI-E 1x WiFi card would not align with the case for some reason? Solved that by bending the case backplate slightly), I noticed that my motherboard is actually NOT straight, it is sort of warped, or bent if you will, in a banana shape. It isn't much, but it's there. I should probably say though, that the system functions normally and all. It just makes me a little worried. It is kinda hard to tell on the pic attached, but trust me, it's there... Should I worry? (PS. The motherboard in question is an AsRock H170 Pro 4S)
