    Newbie
  1. I had a huge scratch on my switch, so I just replaced the digitizer. The new digitizer didn't work except about an inch from the left side, none in the middle, and kinda on the right side. The touch test proved this. So i requested a refund on the new one, and bought another brand from amazon. Same exact thing on the 2nd new one. Obviously this is a user error, so what am I doing wrong? Or did I somehow get 2 defective screens from 2 different brands. replacement 1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07875L8LL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 replacement 2 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078WR1483/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 adhesive used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K4VZNF2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I did notice the OEM has a proprietary foam padding around the edge of the visible screen, which the replacements do not have.

    It randomly started detecting the 470, and it tests fine in games. idek

    HPE h8-1287c GPU Upgrade

    Wow I hope I don't have to change the mobo. Ivy bridge mobos are expensive.

    HPE h8-1287c GPU Upgrade

    I have an HP hpe h8-1287c that I have made upgrades too. I installed a boot ssd, already transferred windows 7 sp1 64bit onto it. I took out the OEM ram and installed 4x4gb 1600mhz hyperx ram. I installed a new evga 450w bronze 80+ (bt) psu. Before I bought the psu I tried to install a 1050ti mini because the OEM psu didnt have a GPU cable. But the mobo gave some beep codes that I couldn't find a guide online for. That's when I bought a rx 470 and the psu. Now my problem is the PC boots but as soon as windows loads the fans on the GPU stop spinning and it's not detected anywhere in windows. I ended up having to update the bios straight from HP's website to try to fix the problem but it didn't help. An AMD HD 7870 2gb does work in the build, and the rx 470 is tested in my main rig. Cpu: i7 3770 with cryorig c7 cooler Gpu: xfx rx 470 4gb Mobo: ipmmb-FM (formosa) with bios version 8.21 rev.a Psu: evga 450 bt
  5. The screws are flush with the cryorig bracket, so theres no way to put a nut on them, and also I meant c7, not h7. They have the same bracket so it doesn't matter.
  6. The first board is exactly what I have. If I cant use another cpu housing i think i can modify it was a drill and some longer screws, if the case allows another 1/8 of an inch
  7. I had to peel the bracket off. There was a gasket in between it and the mobo.
  8. I'll have a pic uploaded when I get home from work
  9. I have a HP Pavillion HPE h8 series prebuilt with an i7 3770. The motherboard has a proprietary cpu cooler and processor housing bracket that are one piece, instead of the cpu housing bracket being underneath the cooler bracket, it's one piece. I want to put my old cryorig c7 on it, but that means I need a new processor housing that's seperate and the bracket be thin enough the cryorig bracket sits on top. Is there any on sale anywhere, or will I have to buy a cheap ivy bridge mobo (which is hard to find lol) and switch it over to mine
