  1. Hello everyone. I was trying to upgrade the HDD in my granddad's old pc to an SSD to give it some more life. It worked fine before but when I plugged in the SSD it didn't post. It's a HP Compaq Elite 8300 with an i5 With ram plugged in it does nothing. Fans spin, cpu heats up, but no video output. Without ram I get 5 beeps. According to https://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm a 5 beep code means either: - Process Failure for an AMI bios - CMOS failure for a Dell Bios I haven't entered the bios before so idk which one this system has. I replaced the CMOS battery and it still does nothing, so I'm assuming I have a Process Failure. Is there anything I can do or did I kill the computer? EDIT: I got the machine to boot with the original HDD. If anything I can revert to that and not do the SSD upgrade. At least my dad's old man's dad isn't gonna kill me now.
  2. Hyper212 Evo needs mounting mechanisms that's seperately sold to work on AM4. They don't ship that to The Netherlands. So a Hyper212 Evo is out of the question. If they would ship it to The Netherlands I had already bought it by now. So don't bother convincing me they do ship it. The normal Hyper212 could be an option however, though a friend of mine says it takes quite a while to mount it. So I'd rather not get that.
  3. Will the BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4 fit in the Coolermaster N200? Coolermaster's website says there's a 160mm clearance, however, the Dark Rock 4 has a height of 159mm. Is there anyone here who has a combo of these two and can confirm whether or not it fits? If it happens to not fit, could anyone point me to another cooler as a replacement? I'll be using it to cool a 2600x on Gigabyte's B450 DS3H. Thanks in advance!
  4. That's not really what I was asking for. I'm only looking for two sticks. Doesn't matter if that leaves some slots unused. 32 GB is overkill for gaming anyways I just want to know what ram out of that list is best to use. 2x8gb DDR4-300OMHz is what I'm looking for. And also someone who could assist me during overclocking
  5. Hello! It's me again with another stupid question. So for my next upgrade I'm gonna do the ram for my R5 2600x. I've heard that AMD CPUs like fast RAM, so that's what I'm going for. Now, I'm already stuck with what ram to choose. I'm looking for 2x8gb DDR4 with around 3000MHz and CL15 CAS latency that's also on this list: (https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-10#support-dl pinnacle ridge -> Europe). Preferably non-rgb. I found some 3000MHz CL15 RAM from Corsair and Kingston and such but I don't actually know which ones are best. I've also heard you need to overclock the ram to have it work at advertised speeds. So if there's anyone who would like to help me walk through that process (when I actually have the ram) on Discord, please add me on there. (FatMax1492#5182) Massive thanks in advance!
  6. Oh, thank you. I literally created this account yesterday to start this thread. I've never been on any forums before, too. As for the RAM, I'm getting Kingston HyperX Fury 2x8GB DDR4 2933 MHz
  7. also if this broke for some random reason how can I know if the ones im gonna buy won't ruin performance
  8. You guys think I should try re-using the 2x8GB RAM? well... my upgrade to the 2600x took place on saturday. So if it was plugged in poorly it would've been plugged in better while doing that upgrade
  9. Thanks for responding! The games I tried (Elite: Dangerous and Just Cause 3) run a lot better at this config. It could also be that the old ones are from proper Kingston HyperX Fury, and that the 2x8GB ones are some budget thing without a cover. Just a plain thing with the memory modules soldered onto it. also thanks for explaining the difference between dual and quad channel. I will try to go 4x4GB then for the time being, until I can afford 2933MHz 2x8GB sticks
  10. also, yes, my motherboard has 4 memory slots
  11. Im a bit of a PC noob. I used to have someone who helped me looking for parts I'd need, until he sold me 1066MHz 2x8GB DDR4 RAM that would work on my new 2600x AMD CPU so, the 1066MHz RAM immensely slowed down my 2600x. I tried putting my old 2133 MHz 2x 4GB RAM sticks in, that ran a whole lot better. another friend of mine could loan me two sticks of 2133MHz 4GB DDR4 RAM, until I have enough money to get decent 2933 MHz 2x8GB sticks now my question is, can the 2600x handle Quad Channel RAM in a 4x4GB 2133 MHz configuration? thanks in advance!
