  1. I am looking for a surge protector for my desk. My pc has a 650w PSU and also I would plug my phone charger and lamp and little appliances into it as well. What is the best surge protector for under $25 on Newegg or Amazon?

    GPU or PSU Problem?

    So it has been almost a month with my new pc build and then all of a sudden during a game the pc shut off and it would not turn back on. I have a tx650M corsair psu and xfx rx 580 GPU. The system powers when there the 8 pin is not plugged into the gpu. When I just have 8 pin in the gpu and not the psu then there is a red light on the rx 580 but I cannot seem to get the 8 pin directly plugged into the psu without the pc turning on. There is a click when I try to turn it on but that it is. I tried using two different 8 pin cords and same problem. Is there a problem with the gpu or psu, I bought both of these brand new from newegg.

    Computer won't turn on

    I lied, when I took the psu out of the case and tested one last time the fan started spinning. So it must be another part?

    Computer won't turn on

    I tried testing the PSU with the paperclip and nothing happened so I am assuming it is the psu at this point. What could have caused this, is there something I can do to prevent this from happening?

    Computer won't turn on

    How would I check this? I have a semi modular TX650M corsair psu.

    Computer won't turn on

    I built a new pc with brand new parts from either newegg or amazon and it has been a month. I did just put rgb strips in the case which was powered from the motherboard. When I was playing r6 siege the pc just randomly shutoff. The lights (not the strips) directly on the motherboard work and the ethernet lights as well. Whenever I press the on button there is click but nothing happens and then I can't get the click again unless i unplug the power cord completley. I tried turning it on without rgb strips and making sure the motherboard power is connected but nothing. Please help.

    Best Wireless Controller

    I am trying to buy a wireless controller. I was one that will natively work without an adapter on windows 10 steam gaming and also the steam link. Any suggestions?

    CPU Air Cooler

    In my brand new build, I have a masterbox q300l with one fan on the back side that was included. I have an rx 580 and a ryzen 5 2600. According to Speccy, the GPU and motherboard will stay in mid to high 30 C degrees. But when I am just internet browsing the cpu temp is high 80s. So should I get a new fan cooler (I am using stock wraith spire w/ stock thermal paste) or add more fans for the top of the case (or front)?

    Which RX 580 do I buy?

    Both the XFX radeon RX 580 GTS black edition and the Powercolor RED DEVIL radeon rx 580 gpus are on sale and the red devil is only 10 dollars more than the xfx. They seem to be basically the same, does any of the two have the edge of being better? Which one should I buy?

    Crucial or Samsung M.2 SSD

    In my build I am using a TUF B450m-Plus gaming motherboard and it has an M.2 slot and I was wondering if I should get the Crucial - MX500 500 GB M.2-2280 OR Samsung - 860 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280. ALSO, on pc part picker it says they are compatible but I do not see them in the list on ASUS website so am I to assume they work since the 960 version works?

    Help Choosing a micro atx motherboard

    Yeah! Have you had experience with this board or know anyone's opinions of it?
  13. I am looking a gaming micro atx motherboard that is for a ryzen 2600 cpu. Something under $150 and with 4 ram slots, m.2; USB C/overclocking/RGB would be nice but not necessary. Any suggestions on particular boards or brands? Thanks!
  14. I am looking to build a small gaming pc for the first time and trying to find a micro atx motherboard under $130 for ryzen 5 2600 cpu. I liked the Asus Tuf B450M plus gaming for the usb type C and 4 Ram slots but I do not know if I can add an m.2 ssd while also using a gpu, like a gtx 1070? I do not think PC part picker finds this compatibility issue. If anyone knows about the m.2 situation or can recommend a similar or better micro atx motherboard that would be great. Thanks!
