  1. It was working fine for a few days and now it doesn't boot at all again . Specs: R7 2700x 1080 Asus turbo with accelero 4 Gskill trident z rgb 2733 32gb Rog strix x470i 970pro 500gb 2tb WD blue 2.5 inch Corsair sf600 Ncase m1
  2. yes it does. the pitch changes and is very faint even at idle but it gets really audible when under load. it randomly fixes itself sometimes somehow but always comes back, not sure why or how.
  3. I've been having this problem for a while. I have serious coil whine from my PC and I don't know where it's from. It's not a broken fan or hard drive or anything, probably the PSU or GPU. My PC doesn't boot sometimes after shutting it down and turning it on. It makes a really loud whining sound and then turns off. I don't know how it starts working again but it usually works after turning it off for a whiile and then turning it on again. It worked for a month without problems after I disassembled almost everything and put it back in. What could it be? Thanks Video of the coil whine:
  4. Would the r5 3600 work with a b450i or x470i board (specifically asus or gigabyte's variants) out of the box without a bios update?
  5. Update 2 lol now it works with the 570. I have an ncase m1 and the mains connects to an extension that connects to my PSU. After restarting my PSU using the power supply switch the coil whine is gone, I hadn't done this in months that could've been the cause. I am still not sure if everything is working but windows boots in fine. I'll use it for a while and update you guys.
  6. Yeah I can't rma it lol also I just tried an RX 570 and the coil whine is still there. Not sure what exactly is causing it. Any ideas? Doesn't boot up either + it coil whines before I even boot up the PC. Can it be the PSU? I have a Corsair sf600
  7. It's as if the power delivery system is damaged. Coil whine goes up when it displays the windows logo and when/if it boots in it goes blank a few seconds later. I'm going to try with my old graphics card.
  8. My video cards coil whine has been increasing over the last few weeks, I have a GTX 1080 Asus turbo with an accelero 4 on it. Today it was under load and it shut off. Now my PC tries to start up but half way through booting up it turns off, not exactly half way, most of the time it doesn't even turn on and when it does it turns off at some point through the boot process. I got it to get to windows just once. Is it dead? The coil whine is really audible and the pitch goes up and down randomly even at start up.
  9. you can try both slots, no harm in trying it won't burn or anything.
  10. I own a corsair m65 pro RGB. it randomly stopped working overnight. this is my support ticket to corsair: my m65pro rgb was working perfectly fine last night, today it randomly stopped working. After doing some research i found people saying that it might be stuck in bootloader mode. I've had the mouse for 7 months and its been perfectly fine till now, CUE does not detect anything, the mouse rgb doesnt light up and nothing works. i can see the laser light up on the sensor but its really dim. I've tried it on another PC and it doesn't work there too. under HID devices in device manager i see :Corsair composite virtual input device" it stays even after unplugging the mouse. windows does not make the device connected or disconnected sound either. thanks after a few emails back and forth, i got the instructions to hard reset the mouse, I'm posting this here so if anyone has a problem they can get it fixed without giving up and buying a new one(I've seen people have the same problem and then abandon the mouse). if your mouse does the same, please contact corsair support and you should have a fix for it pretty quick(you'll have to replace the firmware file through some steps). good luck note: I'm not a corsair employee. I'm just sharing my experience to help other people.
  11. the 500w can even handle a 1080 the 580 would be the best performing one, but i feel like that i3 might bottleneck all of those graphics card in SOME games a bit at high framrates, its not going to be a big bottleneck so its not that big of a deal please avoid using the generic psu even for the 1050.
  12. Hi is it possible to use a virtual machine for doing 1v1s allocating 2 cores to the vm? i have 2 graphics cards, can i assign one to the vm? i'm trying to do 1v1s in games. thanks for the help

    wraith prism height?

    hi it fits comfortably in my ncase m1 which has a maximum cooler height of 13cm. it should fit in your case.
  14. Ncase m1, it's expensive BUT THE BUILD QUALITY IS THE BEST YOU CAN GET PERIOD. It's an amazing case.
