  1. I've heard nothing but bad things about that wireless adapter for VR headsets so I really don't see that as a viable option yet. Either way, I just think it'd be fun if someone tried this. It doesn't have to make more sense than another thing. It's just an interesting thing to test out.
  2. It just occurred to me that the backpack PC setup people wanted to do a few years ago when the headsets had external sensors is now possible with the new headsets like the Rift S that have inside out tracking. I hope someone does a video on that now. I think that'd be fun to watch.

    CPU won't cool down

    I concur that it's a bad cooler. The pump may still be vibrating, but it's probably failing. If it's still under warranty, RMA it.

    I need help badly.

    Did you actually reinstall windows from scratch though? (formatting the drive first.) Because if everything is working fine in safe mode, that tells me that it's not a hardware issue but that some windows files are corrupted. (Don't forget to backup your data first!)

    G skill trident RGB settings not saving

    Yea, I'd say you have to wait for more updates. Hey, but if you have that gskill program running at the same time, maybe that's the problem. Maybe they're conflicting. Try only using one. Last suggestion other than waiting for updates, but it's worth a shot.

    G skill trident RGB settings not saving

    Not necessarily. You've got a new board so you're waiting on things to be updated and all of that. If the bios update doesn't fix it, a future one probably will. I have an Asrock Z390 board too so I'm in the same boat with other issues. It's so typical of motherboard manufactures to be slow to update drivers and have buggy software. I've gotten this with multiple brands now.

    G skill trident RGB settings not saving

    Okay, I would definitely try to update the bios next then and maybe see if there's an option to update the firmware for the ram sticks while you're at it... and hey, at least nothing that actually effects performance is going wrong right

    Use the Gskill RGB software instead: https://gskill.com/en/download/view/trident-z-rgb-control If that doesn't work, try updating your motherboard bios, but be careful because you can brick your board if it fails. That board has a duel bios though so not too scary. Just don't trying updating the bios again if it fails the first time without looking up how to make sure you're reinstalling it over the first bios again instead of the backup. I made that sound scarier than it is. You'll most likely not have any trouble with that unless you have like a power outage mid update or pull the USB stick out. Anyways, asrock RGB software is the worst out of any of them in my experience so it's no surprise to me that you're having issues with it. The gskill software will be much better anyways.

    Main thing to do is remove components one by one and test using the process of elimination. Do this even with each individual ram stick. At least this will narrow down the problem. By the way, you didn't need to buy a new version of windows. Next time you upgrade, tie you windows account to your microsoft account (outlook/hotmail) and it's really easy to transfer your copy of windows over to a new computer. Otherwise, it stays tied to your old motherboard.

    Having some trouble with my new build

    Pay attention to your clock speed. If it drops down from where it's supposed to be set under a load like a stress test like aida64, yes you are thermal throttling. Your issue could be a few things though. My guess is that it's because the monitor you're using doesn't have g-sync. Try updating to the newest driver for your video card because Nvidia added freesync support but you have to have the newest update and it only works well with some monitors apparently so it's a toss. If your monitor allows for it, after updating and restarting, follow the steps listed here to enable it. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-enable-freesync-display-nvidia-gpu

    System won’t turn on

    I really doubt you killed anything with static. Just contact support and return the GPU. It's likely defective from the factory. Here's Jay showing how hard it is to kill a computer with static by literally trying to kill it with static on purpose

    Pc freeze when start games/playing 5 min

    It's definitely the ram. You should match what kind of ram you already have when adding more if you haven't already. Much less likely to have issues. Make sure the speed is the same too ex: if you have 8gb of 1866mhz ram, make sure to get another 8gb of 1866mhz ram of the same make and model.
  13. Actually, putting the case in pcpartpicker is very important to check if things fit like the graphics card, the cpu cooler, the motherboard, the power supply, etc.

    Heat, smoke smelling and motor noises coming from pc

    Smoke? That's seriously concerning. I would open the machine up, inspect all of the capacitors, and look for any swollen or leaking ones. I would also replace the power supply for good measure.
  15. stateofpsychosis

    Small issues due to condensation?

    Sounds like a power issue. I would shut this whole system down immediately, invest in a new power supply and not use the system at all until you install the new one. Also, keep in mind that you have to change the cables out when changing power supplies. The pinouts aren't standardized so always use the cables that come with the power supply.
