    Really interested by server stuff, would consider myself a budget enthusiast considering I'm at least still on the X99 Chipset with an nvme boot drive and a gtx 1080, would like to be able to move from using intel rapid storage technology to a real raid card with more drives as well as getting a xeon and some ECC ram. Other than that I really like space and the UFC.
  • Biography
    Got into computers around late 2015-early 2016. Had been wanting to build a pc as some of my friends had and it looked cool. I had been working in computer sales at Best Buy and eventually just got all the parts I needed. Since then I have found a new love for computers and I am currently enrolled in a dual degree program for computer engineering and electrical engineering, I am also minoring in math.

    Mobo recomendation...

    Both of the 390 boards are your better options. The MSI board has a connector for front panel usb 3.1 gen 2 type c, so if thats important to you consider that, otherwise they both seem to be excellent options, and I would go for something with a bios you are more comfortable with. The gigabyte board has a couple more chokes on the vrm, but both should overclock with the best of them, assuming your chip can
  2. Clear the cmos, that is if you changed bios settings. If not, try using the onboard graphics to boot

    PC restarts, but doesn't...

    No idea what that code means, but an easy start would be to make sure all your drivers are up to date, especially for your graphics card

    No Display Output

    I would first try clearing the cmos, if that doesn't work try booting without your graphics card, try with different ram slots, try with just one stick of ram and then the other, if at some point you can get into the bios make sure you have the proper version as 300 series boards usually require a bios update for 2nd gen chips Let me know of any updates

    900D Build In Progress

    I think home boy needs to realize that PC building is extremely subjective, just because he doesn't agree with what your build is doesn't mean it's not great. Every PC build I've ever posted, half the comments are about it looking good, and the rest are ripping it apart saying you need to do this or that, or that's a trash part why would you use it. Personally I think the build looks great so far and can't wait to see the final product. p.s. having extra room like that is great because it gives you a ton of flexibility for future upgrades or updates

    Watched it live on floatplane, it was great. Honestly went a lot better than I expected

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update - Here is everything you need to know - Coming soon

    The sandbox vm is definitely a nice benefit for us with pro keys, can't wait to mess around with it
  8. I love when companies are like, "we could do this whenever we want," like ok then why don't you. I'm not saying Nvidia couldn't do that whenever they want but like whoopdee do. also the RTX 2070 has two power connectors and all 10 series cards up to the 1080 had one 8 pin and sipped power, kinda took a step back in power consumption with the 20 series imo

    What hardware should I get

    This is definitely an option, but keep in mind things that might be quality of life improvements that might fit within your budget. you could go with a non modular power supply that might cost less but will be harder to manage, same goes for a case. if you don't care about that you can save a few bucks, but you could also go for a non K sku for the cpu and a motherboard chipset that also doesn't support overclocking. truth is most people don't overclock and most chips these days turbo quite high, just gotta decide what you want out of the system. please ask any questions you might have

    What hardware should I get

    I threw this together on pcpartpicker (awesome site btw) feel free to change things like the case or storage as those are really more subjective to what you want, but other than that this would be a really solid build PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor $264.89 @ OutletPC CPU Cooler Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler $24.89 @ OutletPC Motherboard MSI - Z390-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $119.89 @ OutletPC Memory G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $94.99 @ Newegg Storage Kingston - A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $28.99 @ Amazon Storage Seagate - Barracuda 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $59.78 @ OutletPC Video Card Asus - GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB DUAL OC Video Card $469.99 @ Newegg Case NZXT - H500 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case $69.99 @ Amazon Power Supply EVGA - B3 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $59.89 @ OutletPC Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $1273.30 Mail-in rebates -$80.00 Total $1193.30 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-04-06 18:30 EDT-0400

    What Rails to get

    Yeah out of stock on amazon and newegg, the reviews are also not very good. I'm gonna have to find something else

    What Rails to get

    So I am about to purchase this open frame rack https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132075&ignorebbr=1 and I am unsure what rails would be good for the chassis that comes with it, I also have an old 2U hp server that I want to mount that again I am unsure what kind of rails would work with that. I am a super newb when it comes to this stuff so apologies if the answer is painfully simple. Side not I am a college student so cheaper would be better, but if it comes down to it I am willing to spend a little extra for better quality, but some nice value rails would be ideal

    Games lagging with low GPU/CPU usage on high end system

    Make sure you have the latest drivers for your gpu for starters, also what resolution are you running at

    Blue screens after blue screens after installing new MB

    Check your motherboard manual for optimal ram placement as it very from board to board. also try without the overclock as different boards are better or worse for overclocking if they have more or less vrm's

    Asus Z370-E M2 drive problem

    It does appear that your board supports NVMe drives in both M.2 slots, if you put the Samsung drive in the m2_2 slot and he western digital drive in the m2_1 slot does the issue still persist? Which drive is your boot drive and what does the bios show as the boot order
