  1. Updating the BIOS could help with performance but mostly it's a security and compatibility update. If you CPU temperature are under 90*C you should be fine my i7 runs about 50*C on water cooling. Note that I got the GPU on the same cooling loop, so the temp could be a little off. BIOS link: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-GAMING-PRO-CARBON-AC You should check what version you got installed before trying the update. Just press F2 or delete when booting up. Then you should enter the BIOS, then look for the BIOS version. BIOS Update video (Make sure to watch the whole video before trying):
  2. I know but you need to ask to know. Haven't been the first time I've seen it
  3. Well PC won't boot. Try if possible a different RAM stick if it boots then the old one is dead. If not maybe something is fried on motherboard. You'll need a Fluke 179 True-RMS Digital Multimeter to properly fault check.
  4. When you installed the RAM wrong did you push it all the way in? If you did you might have sent a 12V down the wrong pin and fried the the memory module. The fault probably don't have anything to do with the cleaning of the stick.
  5. I have no idea since phones isn't my cup of tea I just buy a phone and use it as long as possible. Maybe a quick Google search will suffice. I would guess that more rumors will appear around July/August.
  6. Yes your motherboard does support the 3rd GEN AMD CPUs. With your CPU overheating with the stock cooler is strange since it should suffice. You should check if you installed and removed any plastic covers during installation. And could use the temp to help if your CPU is overheating. Just install CPU-Z or HardwareMonitor and it should give you the temps. Updating your BIOS could be difficult. But if I remember correct MSI got a BIOS updating software you should if a BIOS update guide on their website. https://openhardwaremonitor.org/ https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
  7. If I was you I would wait until Q3/Q4 when the new iPhone are released and stores need to sell out old stock. One more reason the wait is to see if the new phone is worth the price. They might add some that you really like but you bought a last year phone and can't switch. And on the build quality yes Apple has improved the build quality but I still won't trust them when it comes to repairing the device at the Apple Store. They probubly charge you a ridiculous price. Samsung is a little better on the price but they are still expensive. But that's just me
  8. I would highly recommend that you look in to either NZXT,Corsiar or EKWB. Seems like they at least take their software serious enough. Corsair iCUE setup video: NZXT RGB & Fan Controller Walkthrough EK-Loop Connect
  9. With Asus Aura is bad I mean I haven't been able to only select one device in this case my RAM and give it a different effect then motherboard. And some times the effects might freeze if you deselect sync between the Motherboard and RAM. And if you want to assign each LED you need to click the drop down menu each time. Maybe I'm just stupid . If you look at the NZXT CAM software you can customize each LED separate from each other quick and easy. Corsair got a similar system as NZXT.
  10. I'm not sure about EK but I believe it's more universal then NZXT hue. I believe that the NZXT one only supports their own products, but I'm not sure. Found a FAQ from NZXT: https://blog.nzxt.com/answers-to-common-questions-about-nzxt-rgb-products/
  11. The Asus Aura Sync is a bit clunky. I would recommend the NZXT HUE or EK waterblocks controller for your RGB need, both companies got good software for your RGB fine tuning and you can set fan speed profiles and more. I've been using the CAM software for about ~3years I think and it's great no major issues at all. The EK software haven't tried it yet since it's new. You can find NZXT hue controller on Komplett, Inet. EK I don't know if you can buy it from these retailers yet. What would I recommend? NZXT ecosystem is great if all you want is fast and easy experience. The issue is when you want to mix RGB strips with RGB fans and their water cooler you will run out of options fast, since the HUE controller only got two outputs that supports 5 RGB products each. The EK Controller is more universal so you can plug in any standard RGB item. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-loop-connect In the end it's your money, I won't say buy this over that or something like that. Remember that it's you that gonna spend most of time looking at the RGB goodness.
  12. Hi folks. I got some weird thing happening. Never encountered this one before so I turn to the PC Gods of this forum. Intro: The card that I'm using is a Gigabyte Gaming Trio X 2080 its water cooled and vertical mounted due to some clearance issues. Problem: The problem I got is that randomly my pc displays (see image) tiny squares across the screen. At this state the pc is completely frozen and won't do anything. But after ~15-30sek the CPU starts working again (deezer started playing music) but the display is frozen. At this point the only thing that I can do is to reset the PC. And when it boots up again the Nvidia drivers don't "exist" any more. But after a reinstall all is fine again for a while. And this issue haven't appeared when I play games yet. Didn't have a single issue before going to water the card ran like a champ. List of temps of my Gigabyte Gaming Trio X 2080 City Skyline (3440x1440 at max settings) GPU:45 CPU:42 Doom (3440x1440 at max settings) GPU: 55 CPU: 50
  13. New features for the upcoming update for Samsung devices? For full details check link provided: https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/apps/one-ui/ https://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-one-ui-922862/ Samsung have now announced that they will: Use a new UI design for Samsung phones. Samsung will now focus more of simplicity and less cluttered UI. A dark mode will be available. The UI will be improved for one hand use Beta program will be available in these countries: November:USA, Germany and South Korea 2019: China, France, India, Poland, Spain and UK. This is may be exiting news for people that want a Samsung phone but don't like the current UI. This could also mean that Samsung users could receive updates sooner then before.
  14. Figured it out I think. Reinstalled the software Restarted the PC After windows booted I pressed quit and started the software again And it worked again!!
  15. Just as the title says. I noticed that it works when I reinstall the software. But it fails again after a restart. What could be the problem? Had no issue before...
