  1. Hi! I just moved my computer to a new case and noticed that the case has a USB C port on the front panel. My motherboard doesn't have any 3.1 ports but does have a spare 3.0 port. Are there any adapters out there? I found this: https://www.moddiy.com/products/Motherboard-USB-3.0-Header-to-New-USB-3.1-Front-Panel-Header-Converter.html?setCurrencyId=1 But that's crazy expensive and from a website I've never heard of...
  2. We've tried leaving it on for ~10 minutes to see if it was just a very delayed post - didn't help
  3. Haha, a classic mistake. I double-checked when installing it, it's definitely the right cable plugged into the motherboard and there's no GPU in the system
  4. Tried flipping the speaker - still no beeps. Only thing connected is power and HDMI. We're trying different RAM sticks in different slots but so far no luck. Only thing that could have moved are the cables, everything else is locked in. Tracking the shipment doesn't help it only got scanned in 2 places, origin and destination (despite being >3000 miles apart). Trying to avoid removing the motherboard/CPU/cooler as she won't be able to reinstall that properly
  5. Also of note is the EZ Debug light for the RAM isn't lighting up - even with no RAM installed.
  6. Nope, still no beeps, no output, nothing. Is it possible the motherboard speaker is plugged in backwards? Not sure if the direction matters but I remember being unsure about it when installing it.
  7. @suchamoneypit Resetting CMOS didn't work. She noticed that the RAM slots were unlocked so I thought that was 100% the issue, but we reseated them and still nothing. Of note - the first EZ Debug light (CPU) is lit. Googling tells me my best bets are reseating the RAM/CPU and she's definitely not qualified to reseat the CPU.
  8. Yes. The fans and lights come on
  9. She says the box was in great condition, no sign of damage. I packed it pretty well. The case came with a hard foam that holds it in place pretty well so i sent the built PC in that. The EPS/ATX cables are plugged in just fine, other cables I would imagine don't matter much since the thing turns on just no post (or no output, not sure which). We'll try the CMOS reset
  10. Hi all, Built a PC for a friend, booted it, everything worked 100% as expected. Packed it up and shipped to her and she can't get it to output anything to any monitor she tries. She's tried the HDMI, DVI (via an HDMI->DVI adapter), and VGA (VGA->DVI cable) ports to 2 separate monitors and a TV. No output whatsoever. No beeps either (mobo speaker is installed). Case/fans/etc light up, fans spin, just no output. Any/all suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

  11. I'm also worried about a potential CPU bottleneck, thoughts? Is my i7-6800K enough?
  12. If I'm considering a 1080TI, I'm in the same price range as the 2080 (not TI, that's pushing it I think). Would the 2080 be better than the 1080TI?
  13. Anyone know if 1 1080TI is better than SLI 1070s? I have no experience with SLI but it'd be cheaper to get another 1070 than a 1080TI
  14. You think it would boost performance enough to almost double my frames?
