  1. so I overclocked my setup with this guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoUtA7DKXhU, but knowing pretty much nothing about these things, all is working fine and all, but my cpu is now running almost at max core clock even in idle. which of the uefi settings controls that? Can I have the CPU clock down on idle somehow?
  2. New build and a fresh install of WIN10: - I can't make any changes inside Program Files. I can install programs though. - I can't open Office unless I run them as admin. - I can't add or edit registry keys. Trying to take ownership in regedit results in 'access is denied'. - I can't open screen saver settings, no permissions. I'm logged in as admin for all of these. What's up? I tried sfc scannow, and DISM. They didn't find problems. I did lose power at the very first wupdate, while it told me not to cut power.
  3. Looks like if I take the LED strip OUTSIDE of the case, the noise stops. It's magnetic. Is this the problem?
  4. I'm using Aura to control both. Should probably try Corsair Link?
  5. Here's my symptoms: - if RGB is enabled on RAM and my LED strip, there is a very high pitched noise coming from the RAM area (tested with a toilet paper roll and listened). - If set to breathing effects, the noise comes on with the lights, and goes off without them. - If I disable lights on the RAM, but keep the LED light on, the noise goes away. If I disable the lights on the LED but keep the lights on the RAM, the noise is quieter. - When the RGB elements have been off for awhile, the noise can pick up and start, then go away, then start, but activating the LED's makes it's instantly worse. I tried another RGB header on the motherboard too without success. Asus Maximus X Hero 8700k Corsair RM750x 8x4 Gb Corsair Vengeance RGB 3000mhz Kraken x62 No mechanical HDD's My RAM was also set to 1.5V in UEFI, I changed it to 1.35 which didn't help.
  6. I noticed the R4 only has one vertical bracket but the R6 has two. So I probably can't change them all as those seem to be shorter.
  7. Can someone who owns both of these cases, check if the pci brackets from the r4 are the exact same as the R6 and if they can be swapped between them. Thanks!
  8. I have a chance to get a free motherboard (up to 150€) but only if I order it during January. If I'm going for an Intel build for my new render/gaming PC, will the motherboard become obsolete by new tech in 4-6 months from now? Are there any major game changers coming that would make it wiser to wait till spring and just get all the parts at the same time?
  9. It also takes Task Manager to open for like 2 minutes..
  10. Isn't running out of RAM. I can't seem to find the Vcore value in HWinfo. Checked again, the Sensors listing doesn't have it.
  11. Is my CPU voltage normal? During idle VID is around 0.7 V and gaming 1.05V?
  12. memtest actually ran 2 days ago without hiccups, and crystaldiskinfo has been installed for a few years, shows nothing new.
  13. Cores are running at around 50c when CPU is at 70-100%. Idle 38c. Gaming 55c.
  14. So....format C:\? sfc scannow finds nothing.
