  1. Thankyou everyone who gave advice, after a long day of troubleshooting (testing different monitors and even tested them with a different computer), I fixed it! I feel sooo stupid saying this, but the thing that fixed it was just swapping the HDMI cable. The old one must not be the greatest quality, or it has just been yanked out by my foot one too many times.
  2. Sorry for the late reply, just was updating to the latest GPU Drivers from NVidia's website (It was only 1 or 2 versions above what I already had so I wasn't thatttt out of the loop). I choose the clean install so it uninstalled the old stuff and installed the new stuff. Did a full shutdown. Still doesn't work. Thank you for reminding me about it though, I probably would have let that get real outdated. Oh and yea, downloads are working fine now, seems like its just the GPU-z download or something. I've used bitdefender for over 5 years now, and it has worked brilliantly. It is paid, very reputable, jam packed full of features, and even though "Windows Defender is good enough anyway", Bitdefender is known as one of the best anti virus and threat monitoring programs out there. I'm sorry if this comes off as close minded, and I really do appreciate the suggestion, as there are virus defenders out there that are cause more issues then help you, but I am 100% sure that Bitdefender is not the issue.
  3. Grrr, yea I have had the issue with different hardware many times before. If it doesn't fix itself straight away, it has a day-3 days later. Still makes me so mad that this can just happen, what seems like, randomly.
  4. Yea, haven't changed any of the cables positions. Ty tho
  5. Short and sweet: I put my computer to sleep purposely for the first time, pretty much, ever, and I regret it. Second Monitor and Virus Defender are having some problems. So I never use sleep, I don't like it, startup times are quick enough anyway that I don't need to use it. I still don't know why I used it. But I did, and when I came back to my computer 5 hours later, my secondary monitor was not being detected. If the monitor doesn't get a signal, it says it, but this is just like the computer is off. This has happened before, but it normally has fixed itself after a restart. I have tried pretty much everything I could think of, restarting, shutting down and waiting some time, fully powering off, pulling out cables, power plan PCIe settings. Hell I even tested for a windows update and updated (I constantly update so it can't have been a major one anyway). I am not foreign to computers at all, google isn't helping me much either though. I was desperate, decided I'd see if GPUz could help me at all... This is where my second problem arose. When I try to download anything, it takes a while then my virus defender (Bitdefender) crashes, with my firewalls too. The downloaded file is then broken. This got me worried, this is not a Bitdefender problem as I was downloading things before I put it to sleep this afternoon. Something is going wrong with my computer. I recently fully wiped this computer and did a fresh Windows 10 Install, first thing I downloaded (Other than cinebench) was my virus defender. Since then I have only used sites I know are safe, only clicked things that I know where they go, and only ran programs I know are fine. (I am trying to say I know it isn't because of a virus) PC: Acer is my main monitor, and is plugged into the DVI slot on the GPU. LG is the secondary, being plugged into the HDMI. This was all working before I put it to sleep. This is driving me insane, what on earth do I do?! ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HELP ARE HUGELY APPRECIATED! Thank you in advanced. EDIT: Ignore the problem with the Downloads, this is not a problem anymore, must have just been a coincidence that it happened.
  6. Wait really? Me too brooooooo!
  7. I was in the same situation, did a tonne of research, and I ended up picking the Aorus Master, that is what I think is best. The pros like the VRM and many features outweighed any of the cons I read about such as the bios (which isn't that bad). And so far, I haven't had any regrets.
  8. Yea, never heard of 1066MHz DDR4, 1066 is half of 2133, so I think its probably actually 2133MHz ram anyway. And your motherboard/cpu doesn't have Quad Channel Memory support, it will just use 2 slots per channel. So for the mean time, why not run your one of your 8GB sticks and one of your 4GB sticks per channel for now. As they are probably the same speed.
  9. Hahaha I get Christmas before you, I think. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
  10. NVMe m.2 drives do. 4 Lanes I believe. Your CPU may have 16 PCIE lanes, but your motherboard will also have more lanes via the chipset. Check your motherboard manual as to which M.2 slots are connected to which.
  11. I have a 970 evo (NVMe) and a 850 pro (Sata 2.5inch SSD). The NVMe is effectively ~4x faster, but in the real world, I haven't noticed this much at all. I use the NVMe for Windows and GTAV (Like a 90GB Game), and the load times aren't noticeably better.
  12. I'm not sure, but I believe there are SATA and NVMe versions of m.2 ssds. NVMe m.2 SSDs are considerably faster than SATA m.2 SSDs. Although in the real world, the speed differences are big, but are hard to notice unless you are moving large files.
  13. Literally, the color and RGB. https://www.gskill.com/en/faq/DRAM_Memory How GSkill names there ram, The V in GVK is for Ripjaw V, K is black TZ is Trident Z, R i think is RGB
  14. Quick search tells me it's a Steel Series keyboard, looks like it could have ?!Cherry MX Black switches?!
  15. I also believe the 2080-ti has 544 Tensor Cores and 68 RT Cores compared to the 2080's 368 Tensor Cores and 46 RT Cores.
  16. Are you sure you have this motherboard? I thought this was a 6th/7th gen Motherboard, the i3-8300 or i5-8400 (what ever you have) are both 8th Gen chips. You could have modded it though, I don't know.
  17. You could sell them, but I never would. I'll be building a second PC in a few days from my spare parts as a PC I take too friends houses as I don't really want to take around my expensive main PC. I will also be using this PC for my virtual machines and testing out potentially virus infected things. We also have a NAS, just using spare parts. And we have a couple media PCs from spare parts. You can never go wrong with a spare PC.
  18. "The oldest part in it is ____ years, newest is ______", or just list the main parts and their age.
  19. I have had my computer for many years, but the oldest main part is the mobo, being a z170 and had it since 6th gen. I upgrade something in it at least once a year though, most recently adding a m.2. I don't really count HDDs in this though as I have no idea how old they are. The oldest part in any of my systems that I am currently running is probably my i7 930 being from 2010.
  20. Pretty sure this thing is heavily overpriced, like, not much cheaper than a Corsair h150i Pro 360mm (Triple the size).
  21. Tbh no, not really, I am more of an intel sorta guy. I hear a lot of people talk about the b450 tomahawk from msi, which a quick check reveals it to have 2 5050 12v rgb headers (double check this), but I have no idea on how the motherboard performs. Other than that, the 5050 connectivity is usually listed under “internal IO” or “internal connectivity” or something of the nature, in the mobos specs. Edit: ^if you want to search for one yourself.
  22. Tbh, probably wouldn’t buy it. If I had a beautiful looking card like a Strix or a rtx Aorus Xtreme, I would choose to vertically mount it instead. But, if vertical mounted gpus werent a thing, and I had money to burn, then sure why not. What would be cool is if companies sold some of their coolers that were based on a reference design seperately and made it work somehow.
  23. For what it is worth, I don’t have this board, but I looked at the specs and could not find it listed, nor when looking at the photos could I see one. But that’s just from observation so I may be wrong.
  24. Essentially, 4 Ram slots on Duel Channel means 2 slots per channel. So if you have 4 slots with 8gb sticks in each, you have 16gb per channel. They do this so you can have more memory in total I'd assume, not entirely sure for the thinking though.
  25. I'm finding it hard not to make a "spot for it to rest its head" joke.
