    Pc is completely dead.

    UPDATE I put my psu on another system and that system did not work. The others system psu did successfully gave power to my system WITHOUT the gpu because we where idiots and forgot to get extra pcie psu power connectors for the gpus power delivery. I returned the psu to the shop I got it and had them check it for me. In a few days I will have an answer, I hope it's just that. Though I have to say the way it died, the fact that I worked for 3 weeks and that it's from a very reputable brand seems weird. I hope there is not something in my system that made it fail.

    No guys, I made sure the psu switch is on and no I am not Zeus. The fuse relay is OK, there was no power fluctuation on the hole house nothing deemed out of the ordinary. There are two things I can think that might have to do with it. 1st You know, atx mobos middle screw in not usually a screw but a stand off to aline the motherboards holes with the one son the case. But u can remove it and replace it with a stand off that has a whole for sale screw. This is what I did. Could this be? 2nd. On the io shield there are two small fins on each hole, while I put on the mobo two of them one in the ethernet power and one of a USB port bend inwards blocking the mobos ports. Me being bored to take everything apart I just bended them outwards so they are out of the way..csn this be? Would I get problems from the start and not 3 weeks afterwards?

    Pc is completely dead.

    So, I was playing some games on my system, walked out of the room for a couple of minutes leaving the game open, came back, touched the computer case on the fan exhaust and the pc died. It won't boot, it want make a sound, the fans won't turn no diagnostic led lights turn on no nothing. I tried removing the gpu,swapping ram, made sure everything is connected, made sure that the power outlet works, plugged on the pc on the wall, removed everything from the mobo except for the cpu and the 24 pin and 8 pin. Nothing... The temperatures were good everything below 70c under load, I made sure he power button is not the problem by shorting the pins on the mobo. The only thing that show life is my mouse, whose led (that stay on even after I shut down the computer) are still on. Cloud it be the psu or mobo is dead but they still provide power on the mouse? I don't have molex fans to check the psu, nor I have tried shorting the pins on the 24pin cable because I have read that this doesn't indicate anything since there is no load on the psu's power rail. The system is new. Psu seasonic m12ii-520evo, cpu ryzen 5 2600, mobo msi b450 tomahawk, ram gskill ripjaws 3200mhz 16gb 2dimms, ssd sumsung Evo 860, hdd 1tb WD blue. Everything is brand new, bought just 3 weeks ago. Except for the gpu, a sapphire rx 580 nitro+ 8gb. This was bought used from eBay, it was working fine, everything checked (temp were normal and scored on benchmarks where on part with all the reviews for the same card). I just don't understand how it can run for 3 weeks with no problems and suddenly it dies when I touch the case( nzxt h500). Even if the gpu is bad and the country does have igpu, the pc should start.. Any ideas of what could be wrong? Why do I have power on the mouse?
  4. Hello, I have a ryzen 5 2600 with a stock cooler on a msi b450 tomahawk along with 16gb of gskill ripjaws 3200mhz memory. I build the thing 3 days ago. Initially I run some benchmarks without messing around with any hardware settings and it performed as a stock 2600 should proform run easily at 3400 core and boosted to a little over 3.7ghz. After that I enabled xmp profile 2 so my rams can run at 3200mhz and nor 2133. I am using msi afterburner to keep an eye on the number whike I game and I have noticed that none of the cores ever exceeds 2800mhz. I run cinebench and got an 970 (the first run was 1250) because the cores never went above 2.8 ghz. Single core suffered as well. I thought that maybe xmp was responsible so I disable it nothing changed. The thermals are OK, never exceeding 55c(how could they with that click..) and I have 4 fans on the case. What I found peculiar is that in the bios the frequency is set to 3.4ghz clock ration etc is set to auto. Power management is set to balanced (I haven't messed with advanced power management settings like processor max power state etc) What could be causing this?

    Is the b450 carbon much better than the tomahawk?i dont realy care about the lights, the gigabyte x370 gaming 5 is about 50 euro more than the tomahawk + it needs new bios.I knwo that the asus prime pro is propably the best budget x370 because of the power delivery but it lacks in feutures and looks. I want to be realistic, i doubt i will be doing any extreme overcloacking that a tomahawk cant handle nor i will need oen sience i am not going for a top end gpu.

    Yhea i know..thought the X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING is 30 euros more. Maybe i should consider this. its a 4+3 power phase design and it has a bit more feutures.

    The b450 is not availiable here...not the cheaper msi b450-A. Well as Void Master said if yo consider the 10 euro bios scam, i am heading into x470 territory, so i could go fot a gigabyte X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING for 150 euros thats 173.(anotehr option is the msi x470 aming pro..) well yhea..I guess, its not that i am off budget, but i started from a sub 100 board and i am now looking at 150+. Well i guess the cheaper choise isnt always the best

    175 dollars seem a bit expensive for me. this and the msi gaming pro for 160 are the cheapest x470 in my country.

    well, my other option is an ashrock x370 fatality, i thought the newer msi boards are much better(i remeber back when ryzen first came out, msi was the worst ryzen mobo manufacturer.)Besides the tomahawk has superb reviews
  11. Hello, i am looking to buy a mobo for a r5 2600, I have narrowed down my options to 4 motherboards: msi b450 tomahawk(138$), msi x370 sli plus(138$), msi x370 gaming pro carbon (167$). I am aware that the x370 boards will need bios update(that will cost 10$ because none of my friends have a first gen ryzen).Between the sli plus and the pro carbon i am leaning more towards the cheaper option both because of the price and becasue of the looks, I just dont know about the tomahawk, everyone is giving it good reviews and its a no hustle option.I will be overclocking but nothing extreme.The case will propably be a fractal design mesify so the airflow will be pretty good.Any other recomendations?(yhea asus x370 prime pro has propably a little better power delivery but i hate how it looks and it cost about the same as a carbon)

    R5 2600 VS R7 1700

    is ryzen 3rd gen going to be suported by 1st gen mobos?I can get a x370 ahrock fatality for 120, it was one of the best 370 board vrm-wise.Also wh you chooce 1700 over the 2600?

    R5 2600 VS R7 1700

    why a b450 an not a b350 or even a b370 sience it' the same price as a b450?
  14. Hello, AMD 2600 or 1700 simple question, dificult answer. In my country a 2600 retails for 170 euro (197USD) while a 1700 goes for 210 euros (240USD) and you can pick a b350 for 90$ while a b450 goes for 115 usd (x370/470 are around 20$ more,respectively) what is the better deal. I am going to use the build mainly for gaming and i do know that the ipc-singe core performancy between the two generations is cosiderable, so its bound for the 2600 to perform much better in gaming aplication on the stock clocks. But when you count in the mobo price diference 20$ for 2 more cores 4 more threads seam a good deal, espacially if you overclock(the 1700 comes with a much nicer cooler as well).What do you recon?Is 20 cp single thread increase of the 2600 worth the 2 less cores it has?I would like to approche this desission from a ''future-proofing'' prespective, becasue lets be real, right now in gaming thease two have only a difernce of 3-5 fps tops, but what happens 5 years down the line?
