  1. Update: The surge protector was pledged into the same outlet as the refrigerator (did I say it was an old home?) And each the the fridge kicked on it drew power from the PC causing the GPU to shut down. Lol....
  2. I've had this GPU for about a year now, I've never had an issue until now. The problem started after I packed my system up and drove 5 hours to my girlfriends home, I've never taken my PC here before because that's a huge pain, however I had planned to do some work while I was going to be here so I figured I'd haul the whole system down. The system was packed properly and upright the entire ride. When i power the system on it performs normally for about 10 or 15 minutes and then the screen just go blank. All the lights are on and fans are spinning except the GPU, also the power indicated lights (the little red lights at the 8 pin connectors are off) but Radion is still lit up. I did some research and most people say it's an issue with using a Y split cable to the PSU... however I've been running my system setup for a year and never had a problem. It had occured to me since my girlfriend lives in a very very old home that maybe my PSU is not drawing enough power from the wall, that might sound ridiculous but I'm grasping at straws since I dont want to fork out the cash for a new GPU right now. Also i reset waltman to default and removed all the overclocked. My GPU is not overheating, it's cool to the touch then the system powers down. I can run benchmarked and stress the gpu to 100% with no issue but then was I'm just watching a YouTube video, reading an article, or even leaving my PC idle the gpu will shutdown. Does anyone have any idea what else I could do to fix this issue?
  3. I was given a graphics card from someone who bought a fake graphics card from Ebay. The card was advertised as a 1050 ti and I discovered from GPUz that the card is actually a GTX 650 Ti. I did some research I bought the necessary equipment to do a hardware flash of the bios... problem is I cant seem to figure out where the bios chip is. Here are some pictures of the card.
  4. You might be right, after examining the socket I think I see where it burnt out.
  5. Yeah I had saw that header, I pulled a speaker off another system k had but it didn't fit. I might order one.
  6. I tried both PCI slots with all graphics cards.
  7. I am rebuilding some old PCs and one of my motherboards is acting a bit strange. Normally, in my experience, if a motherboard is dead you dont really get power to anything. When I start this one up all peripherals come online, hard drive spins up, CPU cooler spins up (and remains spinning) and GPU fans spin up. There is no beep, but that's because there is no on bored speaker on this system. At them moment I have tried multiple GPUs from a 8600 gt, GTX 1060, and a Vega 64... all with the same results. I have tried CPUs from another machine, AMD Athlon x64 duel core I have changed the motherboard battery. I have tried multiple PSU units I have tried multiple monitors I have tried running the RAM in every configuration possible including duel channel and quad channel. All seems to do the same thing. The motherboard is a gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 Any ideas?
  8. I probably could wait till mid February and be okay, I might just have less hair, and a larger forehead shaped dent in my desk. Just looking at the budget though, were at about $1,300 USD right now with a $350 GPU. Now I know I can buy some items bundled and get some discount, so let's say we cut out the GPU and were at maybe, $900USD net. If the R VII really hold at $700 I'll be over my max budget a bit at $1,600USD... And honestly guys, am I the only one disgusted by the fact the CPU chip alone is almost the cost of everything else combined?! What the hell happened?
  9. Oh well... my main workstation, the GPU just died, and I use it as a media server for my entire house. At the moment I'm limping along with my laptop. The desktop I was running had a duel core AMD Athlon 64, 8 gigs of ram, and a VisonTek 4550 AMD GPU. So that computer was not worth much anyways, but hey it live a long happy life.
  10. I thought about that option too, and honestly that was pushing me towards to RTX 2060, as it's going to have a good resell value. So I could pick up the 2060 for $350, and in 6 months ditch it on ebay for probably $250-$300 and pick up the R VII card a bit later.
  11. I was thinking about going with a Vega 64, or on the lower end a RX 580. The Vega 64 wouldn't add much to the cost and I do like the idea of keeping everything with the same chip family (AMD preferred) The new Radon VII in February would be nice, but at $700 it's a hard sell. For my budget.
  12. I am building a new tower, as my old one is about 10 years old and I just need an upgrade. I am really only focused on the tower itself at the moment, I have a separate budget for peripherals. My goal was to stay between $1,000 USD to $1,300 USD with a total maximum price of $1,500 USD. This computer should be a good all round computer for basic CAD, software development, and maybe some light gaming. With some fancy RGB goodness too, because why not? I have not built a computer in some time, and would like some feedback on the parts I have selected. I am very interesting in the argument between the GTX 1070 VS RTX 2060.
