    RGB or NO RGB

    Interesting responses! While I have RGB in my setup now, I’d like to build another PC that is a little more “workstation” like. Also, I tend to really like builds that don’t use RGB fans, GPU’s, CPU coolers, etc. but use light strips to show off the build inside. Depending on the color scheme, it looks very classy in my opinion.

    Retro Budget Build

    That’s totally awesome. I’ve often thought about doing this also!

    RGB or NO RGB

    Hello all, I’m somewhat of a newcomer to pc’s, and I happened across this awesome community right when RGB was really getting popular. While I enjoy seeing RGB setups, I also really like seeing an “all business” pc. Let me know which you prefer, and why down below!

    Yes my little glass desk is getting cramped with the big lian-li case. Thanks for the compliment!

    My very first PC’s

    So Ive built 2 systems within a few months, I guess I’ll put both the pcs in here since the actual “setup” didn’t change much. Only the pc’s! PC #1: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 with a 4.0ghz OC CPU Cooler: Cooler Master ML240 (has stock AMD cooler in one of the pictures) GPU: Gigabyte rx580 8gb Mobo: Gigabyte B450m RAM: 16gb GSkill ripjaws @3000mhz SSD: Samsung 970 evo 500gb PSU: Seasonic 620w evo 2 Case: Cooler Master Q300L Fans: 2 cooler master sickleflow and 3 Corsair red LED. Speakers: Logitech Z313 (I think I’ll double check) When I started making videos, I started seeing how I’d appreciate a bump in core/thread count and so I started planning my Threadripper build! PC #2: CPU: AMD Threadripper 1900x @stock speed CPU Cooler: Cooler Master ML360TR GPU: XFX RX590 OC Mobo: ASROCK Taichi X399 RAM: 32GB hyperX @3000mhz SSD: Samsung 970 evo 250gb (will be buying more m.2 drives very soon) HDD: (2) WD blue 1TB 7200rpm PSU: EVGA 1200w P2 Case: Lian-Li PC-011 Air Fans: 3 cooler master sickle flow, 3 Corsair LED, 2 Lian-Li stock fans. (This is something else I’ll be changing soon. Mismatched fans drive me nuts). This is my pc I use for gaming/recording/editing, it’s on the budget side of TR4, but I could (and will) drop in a 1950x or something later down the line with a more powerful GPU and be set!
  6. You’ve got plenty enough hardware for 1440p gaming. I’d say go ahead and go with that so you dont have to get tired of 1080p in a few months and have to buy another monitor.

    Threadripper system freezing/hanging

    So I got the PSU in, much better quality PSU. Plugged everything in... nothing. Same thing as before. So I took the system out of the case, set it all up and it booted up and ran fine for a few minutes. Then it froze, started doing the same thing as before. Soooo, I still have 2 problems. The motherboard is shorting out on the case? And the pc still freezes/hangs up. It looks like I’ll have to try to update the bios, but that’s so risky with the system acting like this, I don’t want a $1700 paperweight.

    Threadripper system freezing/hanging

    Yes I monitored the cpu temps closely when I first got it built. Idle and load temps were very nice actually, at around 26c and 58c respectively. Like I said, I haven’t got to stress the components much because the thing started acting up.

    Threadripper system freezing/hanging

    The rx580 didn’t have any affect on the system. It still is doing just as it was with the Vega card installed. I’m really leaning towards PSU at this point. Have an EVGA 1200w p2 I’m gonna try and see if it makes the system work.

    Threadripper system freezing/hanging

    So after messing around with the system a bit, I noticed something I didn’t before. 1. The aorus symbol on the bottom right side of the Mobo is RGB backlit. This used to come on and stay on when I turned the power supply on, it now just flickers once and goes away when I turn the PSU power switch on. 2. The RGB ring on my PSU isn’t lighting up when I power it on like it used to. Could this be pointing to a faulty PSU?

    Will do. I’ll report back the findings here when I try it. Thank you!

    I did not. This Mobo has a CMOS reset button directly on it. I’ll try that when I install the rx580.

    It didn’t even post after the last time, my boss has an rx580 I can test it with. He’s gonna bring it in tomorrow for me to try.
  15. Hello everyone, I’m new here, and fairly new to pc building in general. I’ve got one other successful build under my belt. Recently I’ve put together an AMD Threadripper system to use for making YouTube gaming videos. Here is a list of my components and below that is the problem I’m having! cpu - Threadripper 1900x cpu cooler - CoolerMaster ml360tr4 motherboard - Gigabyte aorus gaming pro ram - 32GB hyper x predator (HX430C15PB3K4/32) Psu - thermaltake RGB pro 750w storage - Samsung 970 evo 250gb m.2 for OS and 1TB WD blue for mass storage Gpu - Gigabyte RX Vega 56 oc OS - Windows 10 pro So pretty much from the start this system has acted kinda strange. At first it was just randomly laggy and slow for a few seconds and then it would go back to normal, but then when I was playing a game and recording using ReLive it got hung up. Everything on the screen froze and stayed on the monitor, mouse and keyboard inputs didn’t work, the sound glitched, and the case fans ramped up. I had to manually push the power button on the case to get it to shut down. I thought maybe it was a faulty driver so I went and updated all the drivers, did a windows update, restarted the system and it happened again before I even got to load the game up. This is now what happens every time I turn the pc on. And it gives me the BSOD every once in a while and says “thread stuck in device driver”. This would lead me to believe its software related right? I booted into safe mode, and safe mode with networking and the pc ran excellent for about 2 hours playing YouTube videos and just general pc usage. I then tried a clean boot and it froze as if it were in normal boot mode. I tried a clean install of windows and that helped for a short time, but the freezing came back once I downloaded a game and tried to play it. It froze last night, and then wouldn’t boot back up after I manually shut it down. I don’t want to damage/further damage anything so I came here for advice. Here are are a few things I’m thinking it could be, at this point I’m just getting really frustrated and just want to use the pc! Lol -Threadripper makes use of 1 8 pin and 1 4 pin connector on this Mobo. The PSU I’m using only has 1 8 pin connection available. This initially worried me, but after doing some research, it’s supposedly fine to use just the 8 pin if you’re not OC’ing, which I’m not. Maybe this could be the issue? -The PSU is 750w, but it’s 80+ bronze rated. With 2 very power hungry components in this system, could they be drawing too much power for the PSU to handle? -I’ve read that a BIOS update can cure these symptoms, but for some reason gigabytes bios update system is confusing to me. I have BIOS version F1. And after going to the gigabyte website, that seems to be the only BIOS version available to me. I’m not sure if it’s out of date, or if there’s another way to find a more recent BIOS update. It makes me nervous to think about a BIOS update being performed on an unstable system.. thank you in advance to anybody who helps!
