  1. Any way to get the small turbo boost max box from popping up at startup every single time, other than uninstalling it? I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my PC keeps crashing and freezing right now, but in the mean time I'd rather not be stuck at 3.1ghz on my 7940X & lose the 4.3ghz turbo Thanks for any help
  2. Will give that a try, thanks
  3. Yeah, it happens in both Firefox and chrome
  4. So this happens totally at random, sometimes never, sometimes after 4-6 hours of being on, but suddenly while watching a youtube video or twitch, the playback starts acting like it's being play/pause/play/pause over and over. I can't find what could trigger it, or what could make it stop. Everything else on the PC seems fine, no weird issues otherwise. It seems to be totally random. I included a youtube video of what it does. The only thing that fixes it is a complete reboot. Any ideas? *apologies, I'm on an i9 7940X, Asus rampage VI extreme, rtx 2080ti w/ek blocks, Corsair vengeance ram, ssd everything, evga 1300w G2 supernova...it's a long list. The rest is in my profile

    Weird display glitch driving me insane

    Sometimes you just have to turn a monitor off, man. Whether it be to kill the lights for a minute, or something else. Like I said, It can happen if I don't turn on the monitor before turning on my computer, or if I'm switching between displayport and HDMI. I don't think it's that strange, & it's a massive pain in the ass that shouldn't happen at all

    Weird display glitch driving me insane

    This is the 3rd one, RMAd the first 2 because of insane back light bleed & the second one came back with a 2 inch gash on the bezel leaving bare metal. I gave up with this one being just as bad. I have absolutely zero faith in Dells ability to fix this, & for sure won't be buying any alienware products ever again, regardless of how good they are. Everything to do with this monitor has been an absolute nightmare.
  7. So I have an alienware aw3418dw, a 34 inch 1440p ultra wide that I absolutely despise. If you're thinking about buying one don't. It's been a terrible monitor, with even worse dell support. The glitch it's now having is, if I have the monitor on displaying my desktop or something, if I turn the monitor off, when I turn it back on again it won't display anything. Also, if I turn my pc on BEFORE I turn my monitor on, it won't display anything either. I've literally never seen anything like this before. Any ideas?

    CPU temps climbing, dellidded & WC

    OK, even now after loading bios defaults and just lightly browsing the web, it's idling at 40+ and getting random complete lock ups. I'm completely dumbfounded.

    CPU temps climbing, dellidded & WC

    Yeah GPU temps are fine and never even got close to 50c on either card. I'm in a controlled room, temps fluctuate from 68-78f / 20-25c), so no ambient heat spikes Stock IHS too, I thought about pulling it out and checking it, but It's been only about a year and I know LM doesn't go bad that fast
  10. Hey guys, Over the last 3-4 months, my 7940X temps have been rising a lot, and I've been having more hard crashes with overclocks that used to be perfectly stable (complete lock up, no bluescreen). The only things that changed hardware wise has been an EK monoblock (from an EK Supremacy EVO), and a founders 2080ti w/EK blocks (from a Gigabyte Aorus Waterforce 1080Ti), but temps remained the same after installing them. My 7940X is delided with liquid metal. Temps were always just a few degrees above idle (23-25c, ambient is 70f/21c), but the last few months CPU temps have climbed up and up, to the point where temps are 50+c on startup, then settle at 38-45c at idle. I know this temp is fine, but a 20c jump with no particular reason in such a short time is what's worried me. Weird thing is, running Cinebench at default speeds, max temps are fine - averaging mid 60s. However when even modestly overclocked, I get things in the high 90's and multiple cores shoot well over 100, when the exact same overclock had me in the high 70s/low 80s before. Again around a 20c change. Here's my system, the entire thing is in my profile if you need more Specs: i9 7940X (delided w/conductonaut liquid metal, stock clock) ASUS Rampage VI Extreme X299 (newest BIOS 1704) All Stock Settings 128gb Corsair Vengeance RGB 3000mhz (no xmp, stock 2133) Founders RTX 2080Ti on EK Vector waterblock EVGA Supernova G2 1300W 80+ Gold PSU Windows 10 Pro x64 v1903, Build 18362.239, all updates Cooling: EK R6E Monoblock EK 2080Ti Vector waterblock EK PE 360 rad EK CE 280 rad Bitspower Leviathan SF 360 rad EK Revo D5 pump/res The amount of cooling and liquid metal should have these temps way under control, no clue why things have changed so much. Anyone have any ideas? Appreciate it.....

    Infinity case in newer videos

    Thanks for moving it to correct area. Yeah definitely don't think it's the inwin, but I also don't think it's the CUK continuum case either, that looks way bigger than the one on the table in the videos. It looks super small which is what's drawing me to it.
  12. Curious if anyone knows the brand & model of the tiny case case in newer videos. It has the "infinity window" front LED panel. Also, I'm trying to piece together a pc with other random parts, but I don't have a case. I'm looking for the smallest possible case that can fit a 280mm or 360mm radiator. It looks like the Phanteks Evolv ITX is the smallest I can find so far, but curious if Nyine knows if something smaller. I know the Fractal Design Nano S is a little smaller, but from what I've read a 280mm rad doesn't fit without removing the front panel stuff, and also it has a dual slot gpu card, which isn't enough space for a liquid cooled card. Any help appreciated, thanks
  13. So I'm looking to make a fast external drive for storing my large files like game installs, rendered videos, & music archive, backups, etc. I have a 4tb 7200 hgst deskstar in an external enclosure right now which is ok, but slow to respond to requests at times. It can take up to 10 seconds or more to open the drive if it's been idle for a little bit, and the transfers max out at about 140-150mbps with large gig files. Everything else in my pcs internal storage is either nvme or ssd, so the hgst is the bottleneck here. I'm thinking of getting two 1tb ssds and putting them in a raid 0 enclosure with USB 3.1 Gen 2 speed capabilities. This should make it possible to surpass the SATA 3 restrictions and theoretically get real world speeds in the 700-900mbps range, right? I understand the risk of raid 0, and how dumb it may seem, I'm merely interested if what I'm thinking of is feasible or possible, since it makes sense in my head that two raided ssds could actually saturate & take advantage of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 bandwidth. Thoughts?
  14. Quick question, I am putting 15mm slim fans on a radiator, and I'm not sure exactly what length screws are needed to mount the fans without damaging the radiator. I know it's either 6-32 or m3 30mm for regular 25mm fans to a rad, so am I correct that it'd be either 6-32/m3 20mm length screws since the fans are 10mm thinner? Thanks for any help, never had to install slim fans on a rad before.
  15. Yeah, gonna pass on $400 mobile "VR".
