  1. Hey, so the other day I cleaned up my PC. With that, I decided to replace the thermo-paste on the CPU and the GPU (GPU first time since 2015 - CPU 4th reapply since 2015). I decided to use liquid with alcohol (certain cleaning cologne) that dries up and evoporates like instantly, wich I always used to clean the old thermo-paste on the CPU. Now this clean-up, for the first time I cleaned up the thermo-paste and the board of the GPU. I might have overdone it with the GPU board resulting in short circuit. But the fan of the GPU spins so I'm assuming it works. Putting everything back together, the PC didn't boot up. Like it kept rebooting and crashing about 2 seconds after each boot. After Googling and Youtube Videos, I tryed playing with the RAMs and their slots. I played with the small battery, the power button getting the MOBO completely without circuit. HDMI-cable & monitor are in working condition and have been tested. Result is, now the PC follows this trajectory: Boot > Crashes in 2 seconds > Reboot > Fans run, keyboard & mouse have power but no display. So I have been googling and used youtube but with no result. I mean I'm at the point of rebuilding a new pc, but it needs to wait.

  2. Hey, my situation is that I've ordered a pre-build pc worthy of 1k Euros, back in 2015. I'd say and think you guys would agree that having a 1k tower is pretty much still in budget Gaming-PC range. So after having the thing being overused not only me playing on it, the thing aged faster than you'd expect even though I kept managing the cleaning & thermopaste reapply. My question is, looking at the specs below. Is it going to be a better idea just to rebuild a new slightly above budget Gaming-PC or can I make use of any previous hardwares and work my way through it. Especially the motherboard, it's really hard to tell if the thing is going to be compitable with new hardware for the upcoming 3 to 5 years. My first step was going to be changing the CPU, actually I don't even know. Cause I don't wanna be stuck with a bad CPU if I need to change everything else around it in couple more years. Maybe I just need to buy everything 1 by 1, and just make sure of my hardware compability and just quality for upcoming years? Also don't get me wrong this pc can play story games in medium to high settings, but I'm more of a competitive player and I feel like it isn't keeping up with me in multiplayer games.
