  1. I recently bought a thunderbolt dock for my Dell G7 7590, and I'm having troubles using the display output on the dock. I have an Acer XR342CK (3440x1440 75Hz) monitor attached, but it only runs off the Intel dedicated graphics and not the NVidia 2070 Max-Q, so it only runs at 30hz. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Gtx 1050 vs gtx 1150/2050

    Nvidia usually releases the 80/70 series first, then trickles down to the 60 and eventually 50 series cards. The 1080 launched on May 27th, 2016 and the 1050 launched 5 months later on October 25th, 2016. So, in short, the 1150/2050, whatever its called, will be faster than the 1050 (we'll see how much) but it'll be a LONG wait.

    Are you getting output to your display from the card?

    PC Power Cycles

    Hello all, When I went to start my PC today, the it went through a pretty rapid power cylce repeatedly. It was on for ~1 second, then turned off and then right back on repeatedly. I've made sure all the power cables are plugged in fully, including unplugging them and plugging them back in. I've also checked to make sure my power supply is still working, which it is. Specs: Windows 10 64 bit AMD Ryzen 7 1700x (oc'ed to 3.9 GHz, can't get to bios to reset) Asus Strix X-370 Gaming Motherboard 2x8gb Micron DDR4 2133mhz Msi GTX 1080 Armor EVGA NEX750G1 Power supply I've also removed and reinstalled the CMOS battery, and now the PC doesn't power cycle, it just doesn't start at all. I'm connecting the power button front panel connectors with a screw driver. EDIT: It turns on now, but still doesn't post. Debug LEDs on the motherboard don't turn on, so I suspect it's dead. I checked each stick of RAM in each slot and nothing. If anyone has any ways I can definitively tell if it's the RAM, CPU, or Mobo, I'd greatly appreciate the help Thank you all in advance!
  5. I'm wondering if my current PSU can support dual GTX 1070's. I currently have a EVGA NEX750G1 80+ Gold Power Supply, and my CPU is a Ryzen 7 1700x running at 3.9 GHz.

    2 GPU not in sli?

    Most of the times that needs a full restart otherwise the system kinda freaks out when PCI-e devices are suddenly lost

    2 GPU not in sli?

    I know LTT did a video about this a while ago with 2 GTX 780 Ti's in SLI and 2 R9 290X's in CF in one system a couple of years ago, but I'm not sure if that would still work today.

    Sapphire R9 390X Warranty Question

    My friend has a Sapphire R9 390X graphics card that just died. Its still under the 2 year warranty period, but he is having difficulty finding where to get the card replaced. Since I've never had to get something replaced through warranty, I thought it would help to ask people who have so I can help my friend figure this out. Thanks!

    Most people dont consider $300 budget...

    New pc, need suggesstions!

    Its way more than hes looking to spend. $400 for the cheapest CPU and $175 for the cheapest motherboard. That makes up more than half of his budget right there, and the 6700 is probably better in gaming anyway since lga 2011 cpu's are about core count for productivity and suffer a little in gaming performance.

    Best GTX 1080

    The Ti does have better performance per dollar than then 1080. Then again, the 1080 will do just fine at 1080p 144hz. Just yesterday Newegg was selling new Gigabyte 1080 Turbo OC cards on ebay for $420, I'd keep an eye out for deals like those

    Good Fan Controllers

    If your motherboard has enough fan headers, I would use that. I use SpeedFan and it does excellent controlling fan speeds, and I believe Jayztwocents even did a video on how to set it up.

    Custom loop fan help.

    I have Noctua NF-F12's and they're great. I highly recommend them. They're a bit pricey though so any of the recommendations from @legacy99 will be excellent options as well. I've also heard that Fractal Design Venturi fans are good radiator fans too.

    On the subject of itx builds...

    It'll be pretty tough to find a small case with 240mm rad support. Honestly, most air coolers aren't that bad and will allow you to have a smaller computer. Air coolers tend to be quieter (less moving parts) and last longer (again, less moving parts).
