    PC Can't Power On Consistently

    Thank you for your input. I'd like to get one with more modular cables anyway, and I've got a MSI H97M-E35 lined up as a replacement for the mobo. Could it be that there's wear on the motherboard making for an inconsistent signal to the PSU? I'm wondering why it'd have a hard time waking if it's still powering the ram.
  2. My PC started having issues waking up from sleep or powering on recently, requiring me to repeatedly press the power button and flick the switch on/off the PSU to get it to turn on. It doesn't seem to be an issue with the front panel power button, as I need to do the same process when shorting the power pins directly on the motherboard. I'm thinking it's either an issue with the PSU or motherboard. Sometimes I'll press the power button and it'll turn on 30 seconds later. Sometimes I'll flick the PSU switch off, press the power button, flick the PSU back on and THEN it boots. Issue started out of nowhere, put the PC to sleep at night as usual and then in the morning it wasn't turning on. Troubleshooting so far: Several reboots Cleaned and reassembled entire PC Tried with one RAM stick in different slots Used different wall power sockets in house, with and without power strip. Cleared CMOS Had to use a DVI to HDMI adapter to get an output to a display when it first failed to boot correctly. Reinstalled windows (this boot failure somehow caused it to corrupt but luckily I had a recovery usb) Windows is working fine now, can't wake it from sleep with keyboard/mouse anymore. Updated BIOS Specs CPU: Intel Xeon Processor E3-1231 v3 Cooler: Arctic Cooling, Freezer 7 PRO Rev.2 CPU cooler GPU: Nvidia GT1030 Motherboard: MSI H97M-G43 Intel H97 RAM: Crucial 16GB DDR3 (8GBx2) Storage: 500GB SSD, 2TB HDD, 1TB HDD PSU - Seasonic 650w 80+ Gold Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Mid Tower
  3. Hey folks, I'm in need of a new media rig to run a 4k 60hz TV, with support for HDR. My current rig has a Nvidia GT1030 card purely for supporting this purpose, and plenty of storage and fans I can reuse. I also have a tower style cooler compatible with my FCLGA1150 Xeon E3 1231 v3. My current PC isn't posting or sending anything to a display, so I'll probably need to replace the motherboard and power supply most likely. I'll also need to replace the 16GB of DDR3 unless I can find something from the old platform. I'll want at least 8GB of RAM. Is there any point in getting fast RAM, or just pick up the cheapest you can find? A small quiet case with support for 1 SSD and two full sized HDDs, something dark without distracting RGB lights. I dont need a clear side panel. I'd like a reliable fully modular power supply that's just enough to power the rig efficiently. I don't need a lot of frills on the motherboard, just an optical audio in, and enough sata ports for my needs. If you recommend just going straight onboard graphics let me know. Mainly I'm after a recommendation for a good value CPU, and a robust motherboard and PSU. Things I have CPU: Intel Xeon Processor E3-1231 v3 Cooler: Arctic Cooling, Freezer 7 PRO Rev.2 CPU cooler GPU: Nvidia GT1030 Motherboard: MSI H97M-G43 Intel H97 (probably busted) RAM: Crucial 16GB DDR3 (8GBx2) Storage: 500GB SSD, 2TB HDD, 1TB HDD PSU - Seasonic 650w 80+ Gold PSU (probably busted) Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Mid Tower Three case fans Monitors: 1080P 27" and a 4k 50" with a HDMI2.0 port Peripherals Things I'll need CPU: Not going to game, just heavy web browsing and 4k video streaming. Case: Small, dark and quiet with at least 3 drive bays RAM: 8GB at least PSU: Enough for the rig, fully modular for easy cleaning and cable management. Mobo: Something sturdy that can support everything else.

    Second graphics card for 4k 60hz HDR

    Thank you, yeah I was reading off of a 2 year old post with that info aha. I don't really care for gaming technologies and neither of them are faster than my current card. So they'd both work just fine put into the second slot on my mother board?
  6. Hey folks, Just bought a 50" 4K 60hz TV with HDR from TCL and found out that my R9 390 only supports HDMI 1.4 (4k at 30hz) What would be the cheapest route to getting HDMI 2.0 support? Currently my best option is the GTX 1050 https://www.computeralliance.com.au/gigabyte-gtx1050-2gb-oc-low-profile-pcie-video-card-pn-gv-n1050oc-2gl?s=0&gclid=CjwKCAjwpeXeBRA6EiwAyoJPKmk1iXy6hWeYqK_KF0Ykjaur4AEobZwxYzYsZ0VKL4CqboGxS0p7JBoCLmsQAvD_BwE Could I add this card to my system (with the 390 in the main slot) and run the 4K TV off of it?
