  1. Those are the ones I tried and a couple others. No dice.

    help please

    Ooooooooohhhhh that's what you mean.... The first thing to try is update the BIOS if possible. Then set everything to defaults. If defaults don't work, dig up the engineer's service manual and screw with the settings until you get it right. That's really all you can do. There could be jumpers or other connectors on the system board that can be manipulated to make this less problematic, but it depends on the design.

    help please

    Oh like when you get a message from the BIOS? If that's it, you can ignore it. Is it causing any problems?

    help please

    *rollseyes* What kind of heatsink? A biscuit or a tower? Scratch that, doesn't matter. And a lot of us want to know where the "pump speed" message appears anyway... EDIT: How often do you get the strange message?

    help please

    Oh... *massive facepalm* I'm pretty sure everyone here made assumptions when they saw the word "pump." What kind of cooler do you have in an HP Omen?
  6. Phas3L0ck

    help please

    In some cases that's not a problem. I've heard many times of watercooling being successful without a pump. It's stupid but it does work. Most of the time.

    help please

    And this is why we custom build our best systems by hand. PCs haven't ever been decent, and the "one size fits all" mentality is completely obsolete and insane. You can always try connecting the pump and fan(s) to different power connectors or using a different cooler all together.

    Looking to Update BIOS

    Also try a power cluster; unplug your GPU from the main power supply and grab any old PSU laying around (minimum 400W) and plug that into your GPU. Use common modder tips to make it work (bridge the green and black ATX pins). It's stupid to think you'd need it, but lacking further detail on your system it's worth a try for elimination purposes.

    Looking to Update BIOS

    It's funny to think we can do that these days... update the BIOS from the BIOS... 5 years ago any IT guy would be like dude WTF?!?

    Looking to Update BIOS

    How big is your PSU? You could be overdrawing amperage loading some heavy games. Also update your nVidia drivers and check the device settings.

    Yeah, the last file on the first screen is the image.

    Should I buy RTX cards?

    Maybe I'm a bit biased as I'm more of a production type, while everyone else is a gamer looking for clock speeds. I learned a long time ago that unless you have custom cores ready to manipulate at your fingertips and a very complex BIOS that supports it in the first place, OC is a waste of time and resources. But there's still plenty of use for chips that are built with higher clocks rather than core counts, so to each his own...

    Should I buy RTX cards?

    Dude, that's why we have eBay. But if you're really strapped and you need something great, there's always the P6000.

    Looking to Update BIOS

    You have your answer right there. Click the "Application" Type file called "Update," and if it asks you to select the update file, the file "Z87-A-ASUS-2103.CAP" is your update image. Select that file in the update program then follow the onscreen instructions (usually a button or two) to apply.

    Should I buy RTX cards?

    Quadro GV100 is your best bet. It's more stable than RTX, and faster than almost all GTX cards. (don't quote me on that because I haven't found a a ton of info describing the experience of the GV100, but there's plenty on the awful Titan-V)
