  1. Sorry getting back so late, thank you each of you! I took a closer look (well "hear") and its actually coming from towards the top, either the fan on top, or maybe the CPU cooler. I can't seem to get audio as that top fan overshadows the buzzing for my phone, though I can hear the buzzing but not the fan from where I sit
  2. Hey so recently I have been hearing a crackling noise from my 2070 and I don't think I first heard it until after playing Vampyr for a bit and it was hitting 100% of the card (Max settings, 4k, V-sync, my tracker says its averaging 50 but often 60 fps, so maybe I am overdoing it?). Now even without something intensive it tends to start crackling eventually. From what I read in general that this isn't harmful, but I wanted to ask more specifically to a 2070: Can this become something problematic? Can it be indicative of major upcoming issues? I know 2070s had artifacting and crashing issues, can these be signs of that? I did see people making their own fixes for miscellaneous cards, from 960 through 1070, etc, though I am trying to keep the warranty intact and if there is an issue I'd want to get it fixed while it is in warranty. I've had the card since mid Dec and it was only recent that it started to occur. I think it may have started after the driver update preceding the recent Metro one. Thank you! Edit: In immediate hindsight I probably should've posted this in Troubleshooting
  3. To note I still need to install the 970 Pro, and in hindsight I should've done a 2080 since I did not realize the 2070 could not do SLI. Maybe should've done the i7 8700K, but regardless of this (well partially regardless of the SLI error), I am still happy with it. I know I know, I could have saved $200 on a 1070 TI, but I figured that I am already spending so much I may as well bump up a bit. The Hitachi and 850 EVO were salvaged from my laptop with a dead GPU. Hit me with your best shot, the $2233.79 is fairly close to what I paid altogether with tax and warranties, please note that the monitor is included in that sum and is a large part. Also to note, I plan to play everything in 4k, so outside of Blizzard games and indies, I anticipate most 4k games to be between 30 and 60 FPS and so I am fine with 60hz, will probably go dual screen next year when I have a bigger desk. Edit: Just realized this part picker list doesn't have the new Huntsman keyboard I got for it, so add that without changing that estimated total of everything would be more accurate.

  5. I have an old surge protector that I am unsure of its stability, it sometimes gives a blue spark when i plug something in so I want to get something to replace that can also keep my computer running for a few minutes after I lose power. I saw this article, but I am unsure of what I should be looking for in what makes them reliable, safe, and not complete overkill. Any suggestions or advice on what to look for would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  6. Do you think upgrading would be worth it and just get rid of the 250 850 evo? Is it difficult to transfer from one ssd to the other? partic the OS
  7. So essentially my MOBO has 2 ports when it can only use 1 at a time?
  8. Hello everyone, I have an Asus Z390-A motherboard with a SATA SSD from my old laptop. I salvaged an SSD and an HDD from my laptop for this, my first build. The SSD is a 250gb Samsung 850 EVO. I am thinking of adding a 500gb Samsung 970 PRO for, but I see this compatibility error on PCPartpicker: The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled. I am wondering since it says one SATA port, but would that restriction only apply if it is also sata and not if the 970 Pro is NVMe/PCIE? Or maybe they need to both be PCIE to bypass this? Or if it is truly: Only 1 port can be used at given time, altogether. If that is the case, are there any workarounds? Thank you!
