    Jankiest Thing You've Done?

    i was sick of the Phanteks P400 having sh"tty intake airflow so i took an anglegrinder to the front panel. after that i covered it with the magnetic mesh thing that was meant to be on the top. dropped 4 degrees Celsius on CPU temp under load. oh i also made an rgb extender cable.
  2. Well at this point I'm really hoping by some miracle it is because I just ordered a new mobo lol. It has a bios speaker output but I don't have a bios speaker because like it's unfortunately not really a thing in 2019 lol.
  3. Yeah very good point. I was just "panicking" and plugging everything everywhere lol. Tried HDMI, Display port and dvi. Literally every video output I have.
  4. Of course! All lights come on, keyboard and mouse but no input is being accepted. As I said no post screen or anything just darkness. Monitor gets signal though but it's just a black screen.
  5. Weird thing is, there seems to be some sort of signal going to my display. It's just literally nothing? As in just a black screen. No sound, doesn't accept any keyboard input, nothing. I've ordered a new motherboard should be here tomorrow. (Asus rog strixx b450-f) I'm keeping the thread open because I'd like to try fix the mobo and not have an Asus paperweight on my hands. If I can't I'll just frame it and put it on my wall lol
  6. Unfortunately it's not gpu related. I've reseated it already. The system doesn't boot, it just seems to supply power to everything. No post screen for the board or anything just blackness. I've even tried the onboard output with no luck.
  7. I did all what you described as it's not my first time re-setting cmos. Thanks for input though!
  8. Thanks for the input! I should have mentioned that I already tried that about 6 times with no luck. pretty sure I halfed the del switch lifetime lol. Same thing just black screen. No bios or anything.
  9. Okay so, I installed Ryzen master. Decided to get rid of my overclock and just reset everything back to default, Clicked the "reset" button and a warning came up saying my computer will restart you know just usual stuff. Clicked "OK" System shuts down then restarted, fans spin up lights come on I can hear my hard drives spin up etc. But black screen. So I waited about 5 minutes considering I reset all settings and Nothing. I'm like okay no panic, first I pressed the reset button but same thing, then unplugged everything opened the case up took cmos battery out shorted the batter contacts. Plugged everything back... Same thing, black screen no post everything lights up fans spin. Went grabbed a jumper popped it on the "CLRRTC" pins as described by the motherboard manual. Same thing. At this point I'm out of ideas. I'm an hour into trying everything I could find on forums etc. I also had a very safe 3.8ghz overclock at 1.28v Never had an issue before There is also plenty airflow over the vrm heatsinks, I have a 140mm fan right above them in the case for exhaust. But obviously at such a moderate overclock on a 4 core CPU vrms really shouldn't be an issue System: Ryzen 5 1500x Asus prime b350 plus Be quiet! Dark rock 3 16GB Corsair lpx ddr4 2400mhz AMD rx480 asus strixx Samsung 860 Evo 500gb boot drive 2x WD black 1tb storage drives Corsair cx500 System was built about 2 years ago and hasn't had any problems At this point I'm looking at ordering a new motherboard and sending the current one back to Asus under warranty. You guys have any tips? Would love to hear anything! Edit: no bios when mashing del.

    AMD Ryzen 5 1500X

    Far from bad its really decent, AMD did a good job with ryzen. now you're just bragging im way behind on the monitor front, im using my 32 inch samsung 1920x1080 LED TV as a monitor while i gather funds for something decent! The RX580 should do a very good job for you too, the only reason i went with the RX480 is because that strix cooler is so sexy... and i got it 50 GBP cheaper than the 580

    Very nice! im jealous as hell of that multi core score in CPU-Z though!

    It is quite surprising how good that stock AMD cooler turned out to be, fairly silent too. That must be a very good build you have with that 1600 too

    True that, 65w TDP... basically a mobile cpu its funny the Dark rock 3 is good for 190w TDP a bit overkill for the 1500X, the only reason i got it was because my local PC Shop had it for £40 which is awfully cheap for that cooler
