    Recomend MATX motherboard

    Thanks for the replies, I’m not planning on getting a ‘k’ further down the line, this is going to be as is for at least 2 years. Also won’t be getting faster ram so was looking at the Asus ROG Strix B360-G board? https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-B360-G-GAMING/
  5. Hi all, I have been trawling the web for a while now trying to find a motherboard that suits my needs and I have decided I could do with some help. I have an MATX case and would like to stick with that form factor. Budget is around £150 UK Pounds. Other hardware: Intel i5 8400 Noctua NH L9i cooler 4x DDR4 2666 Ram 2x 256gb NVME m.2 drives 2x 2tb 7200 rpm Seagate drives 1x 256gb SSD Drive R9 295x2 GPU EVGA SuperNova 1000w G3 PSU help please!

    HELP! Dead RAM slots?

    Hi all, so i bought an MSI Z370m Mortar board on ebay from a seller that listed it as nearly new. It was missing the rear IO shield and when i finished building my machine i had no post. Seems that it is having issues with the RAM slots. I have an i5-8400 and Samsung 2666 8gb RAM sticks x2 From CPU side they run as A1, A2, B1, B2 and i get the following results: A1 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately A2 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately B1 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately B2 - Post and boot to OS A1+A2 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately A1+B1 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately A1+B2 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately A2+B1 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately A2+B2 - No post, CPU and DRAM flash alternately B1+B2 - Post and boot to OS I have reseated CPU, checked pins, adjusted heatsink pressure, Reset CMOS, Defaulted BIOS, Updated BIOS, CPU works fine in another machine with all 4 slots populated, RAM works fine in another board. I think i have exhausted all posibilities and am looking at a dead board that needs returning or have i missed something?

    screw this! - forgotten hardware

    Sound good to me, i'm not rushing this as i want to make sure i do it right first time and not have too many issues, I have used AIO coolers before but this is a slightly different ballgame.

    i will wait for the rad to arrive as im not certain what brand it is... just looks like that one. (have attached pic of actual rad) no hardware is included as 2nd hand from social media. Would it be a good idea to rinse with some isopropal?
