  1. I was planning on doing it through the bios, is there an advantage to doing it in windows?
  2. What stripe size should I use for 2 ssd's used for a gaming library? The Ssd's are Samsung 860 QVO 4TB. Raid controller is Z390 chipset. Spoiler is extra info, not really required to answer my question. Now back to the question, motherboard manual says 128KB, some people online say 64KB, others say 16KB. I know they are large drives but I still don't want to waste space by setting the stripe size too large, but I also don't want to loose performance for it being too small. Thanks!
  3. OK, I will disable sli before I turn off the computer tonight, then if it does it again tomorrow I will try that keyboard shortcut. If it works I will ddu the drivers and re-install. If it doesn't work what should I try? Same thing? I won't be able to find out if it worked or not until the next day though lol
  4. Hello, I have an annoying issue with my computer. When I turn on the computer the display will turn on but then say no signal and turn off again and that's it, I can see the computer boots into windows from my keyboard though but no display. I also noticed the nvlink Bridge has no RGB effects on it. Turning the computer off, turning off the power supply, removing the gpus, and putting them back in fixes the issue every time. I only built the computer 3 days ago, so I haven't had much time to troubleshoot the issue since it only happens when the computer is fully cooled down i.e. Overnight. What I have tried that hasn't worked: Removing and putting back on the nvlink bridge. Powering off PSU, pushing in gpu (in case it was just a bit loose) and powering on psu Removing and replacing power connections at the gpu. Changing bios setting for default graphics to be pci express What I haven't had the chance to try yet: Removing and replacing power connections at the PSU (one of the gpus uses cable mod cables, the other uses ones that came with PSU) Replacing PSU (really don't want to do this, would rather try using the second psu separately and run a dual PSU setup temporarily for troubleshooting but it's risky Using only one gpu (see below) Using a different motherboard (absolutely last thing I will try see below) Not turning computer off ever, and/or always put it to sleep or hibernate. When the computer is running it runs fine, no issues whatsoever, no crashes, gpus run as they should. Mobo shows either A0 or 40 code when the computer boots but no display, also during this time plugging displayport straight into motherboard does nothing. Some background on the build, it's a fully custom loop so taking out components for troubleshooting is extremely difficult. Therefore I really don't want to do it. Removing either gpus would require a full drain of the loop which unfortunately in my case would be not at all an easy process and very time consuming. Before I built the computer and before I installed the water blocks on the gpus I tested the gpus and they ran fine, but then again I didn't really leave both of them in my old computer overnight, it was only 1 because it ran too hot with both of them. The PSU is brand new, so I don't really think it's that. All other parts of pc were bought on reddit new, open box and he said he tested them before shipping and everything was good. Relavent specs Asus Maximus XI Hero 9900k 2x2080ti Asus Rog Strix OC 1200W EVGA Supernova 80+ Platinum Full EKWB water cooling loop with 3x360mm radiators cooling a cpu monoblock and both gpus. P. S. I know sli is dead, I got a good deal on the cards together and I can easily sell one for what I bought it for if the performance isn't what I expect. Most of the RGB is off in the pictures so it's easier to see components.
  5. Can't do 4K or 2K @144Hz through hdmi unfortunately.
  6. So what your saying is plug the displays into the motherboard so they go through the igpu then the monitor, so for simple stuff like YouTube the Gpu's aren't used at all? Good idea, but mobo only has 1xhdmi port.
  7. So your saying if I am running the game off the m.2 I might get less fps by a bit? If I ran it on a separate drive that wouldn't happen though right?
  8. I think it does actually, but how would I benefit from using integrated Gpu and sli Gpu's? Could they all work together?
  9. Motherboard GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO WiFi Gpu 2x 1080ti Cpu i9 9900k M.2 970 Evo 1tb ssd 9900K supports up to 16 PCI lanes, the graphics card will use 8 each, so no more for M.2 ssd? Is there a way around this or am I screwed? I am using m.2 as my boot drive so I would rather not have to remove it. I know sli is dead, it's just temporary until 2080ti comes down in price/is widely available.
  10. Why would I use an integrated Gpu? Pretty sure the 9900K doesn't have one anyways though.
  11. Sli is just temporary until 2080ti prices come down. But sli works in gta v and far cry 5, which are the ones I care about.
  12. Hi, How do multiple monitors work with sli? Here is the setup 28" 4K Monitor 60Hz Freesync (Freesync not used obviously) 32" 4K Monitor 60Hz G-sync 27" 2K* Monitor 144Hz G-sync *Assuming 2K is 2560x1440 Asus Rog Strix 1080ti OC Sli with MSI 1080ti Seahawk X. The Seahawk has 3 display port ports and it will be on top (main) so can I just plug them all into that? Or will I have to split it between the two? I'm confused what the resolution would be for all 3 could I trick the computer into thinking the 2K Monitor is 4K when I am using all 3 so it would be 11520x2160 or would it have to be 10330x1440? The max resolution for the Asus is 7680x4320, the msi doesn't list it, so would the 2 cards combine or am I still limited to 7680x4320? I'm confused. Last thing, if gsync was on would that limit the 144hz to the lower 60Hz monitor? Or do they work independently? Thanks!
  13. Yeah, you can give them a very extreme usage scenario and see how many tb you can write to them before failure, then see how many the average user will write to them per day and calculate it from there.
  14. Regardless, ssd's last a lot longer than hdd's. Unless you keep them at full capacity and constantly delete and write more data to them.
