    How to solder back DVI connector GPU

    I yanked on my DVI connector and am now getting much higher inout lag and lower FPS. I want to re-solder the DVI cable to the GPU, how can I do this?

    How to solder back DVI connector GPU

    Are you sure? What if it's trying to power through one or two connections instead of the other 5 solder joints, could that not cause a delay

    Tried re-seating, still the same input latency issues. The Diagonal connector that solders to the PCB has two screw sockets that pulled on the solder.

    How to solder back DVI connector GPU

    Its not the cable. I yanked on the cable when the screws were in place. I can only assume that it pulled the DVI screws an maybe some soldering joints on the PCB

    The cable was never an issue. I can only assume that some solder is loose, as I'm getting near V-sync levels of latency on my mouse. nothing else has changed.

    How to solder back DVI connector GPU

    I don't think you get what I mean. I had the two screws in place when I tried to remove it with force, because I usually have them off. This pulled the board REALLY hard. obviously some of ths older is off because of really high input latency. I can't actually see the solder on the back because of the plate, but I assume its off.
  7. I went to (idiotically) pull the DVI out of the back of my GPU, without realising I had screwed them in. It make a creaking noise and ever since the fans have just been revving up and down at low load since. Surely pulling on them wouldn't have damaged the card since it would only affect the screws on the, back since I'mm not pulling on the DVI input itself?

    What sort of damage to other components could water in Front USB port cause

    Thanks for the detailed response. How about the top of GPU, there is a possibility that some got there to and there area couple of open transistors and power cable? If there is any issue would this present itself in synthetic benchmarks. Currently Passmark has no issue but I'm having issues in game, which could be coincidental
  9. Earlier I was leaning over to place something in USB port when a small amount of water dropped onto the front USB 3.0 I am now experiencing much lower frame rates and other issues but benchmarks seem to be fine. How could this damage other components, would it transfer something through to the motherboard and cause some sort of short through the power?

    System defiantly isn't stable getting stuttery game play and low fps that wasn't present earlier.
  11. I was having major stuttering issues on my PC, I tried 1000's of hours to try and get it right, but it wouldn't work. I chalked it up to being that my at has power issues and had a few mini brownouts (although I have been told that my PSU Evga Gold G2 defends against short voltage drops). I purchased an entire new system mobo ram and cpu skylake, and it was fine for two days. Last night I had some of those power issues in my flat, lights flickering. I went to play and lo and behold the stuttering is back again. UPS are simply too expensive where I live.

    Brownout possible cause, bought new PC and it happened again

    http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?13892-Can-the-PSU-protect-my-components-Or-do-I-need-a-UPS-or-a-voltage-regulator I was reading this thread about how they aren't really necessary.

    Brownout possible cause, bought new PC and it happened again

    A couple of long time posters told me that a decent psu will have just as much protection from undervolting, while never actually losing power which I don't. Light flickering suggest fluctuations in voltage that PSU's can handle apparently. There doesn't seem to be a Ms limit on when damage occurs.But I do agree Sith what you are saying about it giving me more time. UPS's at 500w are really expensive, I just can afford them right now. If damage has happened wouldn't this show up in benchmarks, which it isn't.

    I have been told by experienced users on general that they aren't necessary, they also cost 100+
  15. Is it at ALL possible for any type of damage to be caused by plugging a damaged router via Ethernet into a motherboard?
  16. Possible in what way?
  17. I was wondering if it is at all possible that the front panel pins that lead from a case into the mobo could EVER damage it, through short circuit or otherwise. Is this possible if the Power LED, reset buttons are damaged etc.
  18. I have windows installed on a Samsung evo 860, and other games are on another SSD. Games don't stutter and run much better on the secondary, but there is noticeably more input lag?
  19. I have experienced stuttering with textures and other things in game. I moved a game to my Kingston and the issue resolved, although I seem to get slightly higher input lag there. Is it faulty?
  20. Is it possible at all to reduce the timing of this memory to c9? I have an MSI z97 and it lists a "Try it!" section? The memory is G-skill 2400mhz 1.65v 2x8gb

    Why is input latency higher with games on secondary SSD?

    Sure. I'm pretty sure my 860 evo (with windows) is faulty, as I have not stuttering on the other drive. When you say noticable, do you mena there will be some, even a little. i7 4790 16gb 2400MHZ 1070 Strix Samsung evo 860, Kingston a400 Evga g2 650w
  22. Polarisandneptune276

    Samsung SSD causes stuttering game, other SSD is fine.

    Samsung 860 Evo. The drive is about 6 months
  23. Accidentally pulled on the outside of the dvi casing when moving it, and now there is a good 50+ms on my mouse that feels like v-sync x2 Options?
  24. Polarisandneptune276

    Pulled hard on DVI input of monitor, now significant input lag

    Have done that. Inout latency is wildly high. Not sure exactly what would cause this, maybe one of the pins in the dvi connecting causes some sort of loop around. Seems hopeless, probably going to dump monitor.

    How much damage does a brown out do.

    I had some sort of brown out in my house earlier, the lights were flickering and during it my monitor dimmed and a loud electrical buzzing noise came from my PC. I am really OCD about breaking parts. What damage can this cause? There are SO many tiny thing that can go wrong, like small VRam chips slightly not working etc, that unfortunately I'm going to have to get rid of it all and start from scratch with some sort of pier conditioner. But for the sake of conversation what could have potentially happened to the hardware, everywhere I read says its awful for components but they never say what actually happens.
