  1. As the title states, the speakers buzz when the 3.5mm connector is plugged into the pc(mobo or the case) and they buzz when they are not plugged into anything but when I connect them to my phone the buzz goes away. I have heard something about a ground loop but I do not know if this is the problem and if it is how do I fix it? Thanks

    Buying cards used for Mining.

    I have never dealt with ASUS customer support or RMA so if something ever happens to the card I do not know to what extend ASUS would be of help. As stated before, if you can take the card for a test run for a day. I assume that won't be a problem since the owner of the card is your friend. A GPU is a GPU, if it isn't wrecked it can run games without any problems is what I would say drawing conclusions from my exp ^^

    I suggest you try stresstests like Furmark and also some Triple A title games. Try to see both synthetic and real-life performance of the card. What brand is the card ?

    Buying cards used for Mining.

    Hello I have used 2 RX 580s that were used for mining and here are the tips I could give you from my experience: Does it have a warranty? How clean is it, is it dusty and is the backplate somewhat oily or greasy? Did you see it work? If you can stresstest the GPU, please do so and see how stable is the test and the temperatures. -If the temperatures are not stable it might either be because the thermal paste is dried up or the fans are not healthy anymore. Try light and heavy gaming before you buy it and supervise the temperatures; at what degree do the fans start to spin? And lastly, does the gpu have a custom bios installed? Answer these questions and see how well the card does, if the answers are OK the card is quite usable from my experience ^^
  6. Hello! I can't decide if whether which one I should get: https://www.thermaltake.com/chassis/mini_case_/core/c_00002373/core_v1/design.htm https://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=c_00002727 I want the F1 Supressor one but I am worried about the airflow. Core V1 has a front mesh panel that I think would help with the airflow; F1 Supressor has a almost covered front yet the same 200mm fan. Would it make a great deal of difference and which one should be taken if you consider the specs below; MSI B450I gaming plus Ryzen5 2700 be quiet! pure rock slim 16GB corsair lpx 2400 GTX 1070 EVGA FTW Corsair TX750M Thanks in advance

    Help! squealing psu, should I be concerned?

    I guess maybe it's because it hadn't been used for a long time though as of this moment my pc has been turned on for an hour and the noise I can still hear when I put my head next to the psu. Is that ok?

    Help! squealing psu, should I be concerned?

    I have heard CW before and honestly this does not feel like it. It makes the sound on standby and when working; I did not think it was CW because the volume does not change with the amount of load. I tried playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider and tried Furmark as well. The noise level of the squeal just stays the same but it's pretty much always there. It is very clear when I'm putting my ear right beside it to hear it, apart from that I can only hear it when I listen but of course the main point is that will it explode; if it is mere capacitor excitement I` wont worry as much.
  10. Hello, I got this Corsair TX750M PSU from a friend recently; it had been just sitting in the box for 8 months and had only used it for a couple months anyway. The problem is when all the cables are connected and when I plug the power cable in the PSU starts to squeal in a very high-pitched but at a very low volume sound, regardless if the pc is turned on or off. Should I be concerned? the sound starts to begin the moment the pins are connected to the psu. If this is a soon to fry everything in your computer situation, the psu has warranty; should I just RMA it?

    Yes, I do really hope they can keep up with the performance per watt promise. Thanks for replying.

    Am4 ITX Build

    Cheers! Do you really think there is going to be much of a difference between 2700 and 3700? Should I just got for 2700 or 2700x when their prices go down after the launch of 3000 series?

    I will be somewhat over my budget if I opt for an ASUS board; regardless of ASUS which one would you prefer?

    Am4 ITX Build

    Along witht the upcoming launch of Ryzen 3000 series I will be switching my build into an ITX build. My first question is which motherboard should I opt for? https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450-I-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10#kf https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B450I-GAMING-PLUS-AC Second question is if I were to get a 95w TDP Ryzen 7 3700, https://www.bequiet.com/en/cpucooler/688 would this cooler be enough in a Silverstone SG13 case or should I opt for a R7 3600? Thanks in advance Edit: the build is mostly for gaming and some light edit, architecture software and photoshop.
  15. It caught my attention that only this brand Monster puts i7-9700k meaning desktop processor in a laptop; could not find msi, asus or gigabyte laptop variants of 9700k. I am not mistaken am I?
