    Graphics Card causing my PC not to Turn On?

    As I wrote in my post, we are already certain it's the GPU which is causing the short circuit. Because when we remove the GPU, the system boots fine with integrated graphics. Another point I want to mention is he had a Asus 980 Ti Matrix. It was an expensive GPU when we compare it to the other 980 Ti GPUs. I feel like it should have lasted longer than that. I didn't expect it to fail after 2,5 years.

    Graphics Card causing my PC not to Turn On?

    Sorry fore reviving this thread but I have to share it. My brother's PC has a GTX 980 Ti. His PC suddenly shut down and he couldn't turn on. He said he smelt something burning for a very short period of time. When we press the power button on the case or on the motherboard, the fans spin like a split second and then PC shuts down and won't respond to another press of power button until we unplug the power cable and plug it back on. So, we suspected PSU was a problem and got a new one. His old PSU was Thermaltake Smart 750W. Not a high quality one, I guess. Now, we have a Seasonic Focus Platinum 750W. But the problem persisted. So, we started removing the components of his PC one by one. After removing GPU, the PC started to boot. His GPU just died, I believe. Now, we will get a new one.
  3. I am surprised that no one ever has come up with that. Most new builders I know suffer from it. I am not a new builder but I hate it too. Why do power cables have to hurt when plugging in or plugging out? Non hurting power cables without sharp points or edges would be a true innovation IMO.

    First Time OC

    I suggest watching youtube videos and researching google. I don't want to mislead you but here's my take. Start with 1.30 vcore. Test stability. Then decrease voltage by 0,025 and test again. If unstable, bump vcore by 0,025. I recommend against high LLC but who knows?

    Sandisk USB Flash Drive Serial Number Format

    Wow. Thank you so much.
  6. I purchased an Sandisk Extreme Pro 256GB. I need to find out what my product's serial number is in order to register it. However, there are 3 different codes on the back of the USB drive. I can't decipher which one is the serial code: Character (or letter): C Integer: I Minus sign (or hyphen): - 1.) CCCCIII-IIIC 2.) CCIIIIIIIIIC 3.) CCCC-CCC-CCC-CCCCIII Maybe, if you already own a Sandisk product and have already figured it out so you can help me. ^^ Thank you very much! I really need this.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    I find this hard to believe.

    240 hz IPS?

    Still none?
  9. I connected the LED controller to the PSU via another cable, and the problem now seems to be fixed. Previously, the LED controller and HDD were connected to the PSU via the same cable. Fans are still connected to the mobo, not to the PSU. I did not try to connect them directly to the PSU. This could have been maybe another solution.
  10. I have two Nzxt fans with RGB lights on them (Aer RGB Fans). Several weeks ago, after turning on my computer, they just started to look dimmer than before. It is extremely weird. They are not able to be dimmed down. The control unit is not capable of doing it. So, we can dismiss a software or RGB controller problem. What is even more strange is at random intervals they go back to their normal state, and after a random amount of time they become dim again. What could be causing this? How can I solve it?

    Do people from US tend to be more employer-sided?

    So, is it not the employer who is giving you a job in the first place outside the US?
  13. Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 850W around 120€ Seasonic Prime Gold Gold 850W around 160€ Seasonic Prime Ultra Gold 850W around 205€ Which one should I choose? Prime ultra has a longer warranty. What else? All of the reviews show that all of them are incredibly high quality. I want to go for the cheapest one (which is Focus Plus 850W Gold), but I am not sure. :D System: 9900k; RTX 2080 Ti; 3 SSD, 3 Case fan, 1 AiO cooling for CPU; 1 high end mobo; some RGB strips and control unit; all of the components are overclocked.
