    Intel Core i9 9900KFC

    Also been some leaks for mobile "h" series processors, including an unlocked i9 9980HK with 8 cores and boost up to 5ghz. https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/intel-accidentally-posts-9th-gen-h-series-specs-online.html

    They claimed my own video

    It appears that YouTube has recently made adjustments to its content ID system and it's causing a lot of false positives. If you dispute the claim then it should be reviewed by fullscreen and removed. @LinusTech @nicklmg may be able to help expedite the process.

    Cables from g3 650w / 850w

    Sounds like a stability issue with the overclock then. Run Prime95 for a few hours when you set your CPU overclock to test the stability of the system. You may need to lower your clocks or increase the voltage slightly. Stock 2080Ti is ~250W. 8700k overclocked to 5GHz is ~175W while running Prime95, and way less during gaming loads. There's no way you're hitting >650W. You'd just be wasting your money on a new PSU that won't solve your issue.

    How often are you running LN2 cooling on your CPU? Because that's the only way you'd be "hitting the limits" of a 650W PSU with a single 2080 ti and 8700k.

    Can my PSU run RX580 Nitro+

    The 6pin connector on the RX580 Nitro+ is optional.

    Motherboard problem

    Normal double boot, probably checking memory. Don't worry about it.

    Pentium G2030 delid

    It's not worth the cost of the LM to delid a dual core pentium CPU.

    Changed my case and doesn’t turn on

    Will look like the top left image. The CPU 4+4 connector. Did you say "no swapbacksies"?

    You don't have the CPU power connector plugged in. Top left side of the motherboard.

    Cables from g3 650w / 850w

    Why are you replacing a 650w G3 with a 850w G3?
  11. Is the tv connected to the internet with wifi or Ethernet?
  12. Looks like it's just from the flux used when soldering. It shouldn't affect the card, but you could clean it off with isopropyl alcohol if you really wanted to.

    Wtf wan show.

    It's not just you, it's everyone. You can get it to play it in 360p if before you press play, you adjust the resolution settings in YouTube to set it to 360p, and then press play.

    Graphics card bricking? I'm confused

    Plug the display cable in to the graphics card. You should only plug in to the motherboard if you're using the integrated graphics from the CPU. That's good. That means it's being used to its full potential. When an electrical charge builds up on a surface, and then is discharged No longer needed. Use the Nvidia drivers Fan only spins when it reaches a certain temperature, you can tweak this in the software for your card or disable it. It's normal What? It shouldn't be booting in to the BIOS. Make sure the storage drive which has your OS install on it is set as the first device in boot priority No, but don't. Probably end up sticking a finger in a fan and break the fan 94°C (according to Nvidia specs) As long as you want If you cleared CMOS, that will likely be the cause of issue #5. Enter the BIOS and set the HDD/SSD with your OS install on it as the first option in the boot priority list. Next upgrade should be to add a SSD and a RAM upgrade.
  15. Rumour has it that Valve blocked this after realising the script for Half Life 1 and Half Life 2 could be entered as a prompt.
