    front panel reset connector piece

    I have a little slack, I could always strip the wire a bit more. Are these typically crimped on? If so I'm assuming I need a special tool and it might be worth just buying a new one but I have no idea where. I did find sleeved extensions but no sleeved full front panel wires.
  2. Hello, Recently the connector piece on my reset cable for the front panel broke off, it must be in the housing for a motherboard I just RMA'd. Would it be easier to crimp a reset connector back on the wire or just buy a new wire? If so, where can I get just the end connectors? Looks like Newegg carries the wires but the ones in my case were sleeved, any idea or where to get these if needed? Thanks.
  3. Turns out my new Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi could potentially have coil whine in the cpu vram. I've read that some have had success disabling C-States in the bios to help eliminate the coil whine. My question is what exactly does disabling C-States do, and will there be any performance loss if I do disable it? Or perhaps I just rma the board and hope to get one without the whine, thanks!

    Buzzing sound around CPU, thoughts?

    I've read that disabling C-States in the bios might help with coil whine on the motherboard. Question is what does disabling C-States actually do and will there be a performance loss if it is disabled. Maybe I can try this before deciding what to do with the board?

    Buzzing sound around CPU, thoughts?

    Ah ok, so most likely it's this over the Noctua. Does the coil whine on inductors lessen in time or can it get worse? Thanks for the help.

    Buzzing sound around CPU, thoughts?

    Yes, the plastic piece is quite large and stayed behind in the box when I removed the cooler.

    Buzzing sound around CPU, thoughts?

    I thought there could be a chance, unplugged all fans from the Noctua as well to test, still buzzing. It sounds like it's coming from either the bottom of the Noctua or around the cpu area.
  8. Hello all, I've just recently put together a new build and I'm experiencing some a buzzing sound directly around the CPU area. Reading about coil whine I've tried removing my GPU, unplugging all fans and even checking if the sound was coming from the m.2 ssd that's in the same area. It sounds like a cd writing or a mechanical hd almost, just more of a buzz that goes on and off constantly directly where the cpu is. It's actually more annoying in windows as it goes on and off as under full load it's more of a constant buzz. I refused to believe it was coming from the cpu but with the side panel removed and almost everything unplugged I don't know what else it could be. What could it possibly be? It can't be the CPU correct? Could it be my NH-D15 or even my motherboard? This build is on my desk and maybe I just notice it more but I either want to do something about the buzz or move my pc to another location. Any ideas and/or has this happened to you? I appreciate the help, thank you.

  9. Are extensions safe as well or should I only be considering full cables? Thanks
  10. My bad, I don't actually need the sleeved cables I just would like it to look a little cleaner then the stock cables. Corsair GPU cables especially are super bulky and don't look the greatest, but I'm concerned about the stability of 3rd party cables.
  11. Hello all, I'm looking for a bit of feedback. I've read many unpleasant reviews regarding sleeved cable extensions frying GPU's and not being reliable so I'm leaning more towards fully sleeved cables. Question is how reliable are sleeved cables such as CableMod vs the stock cables you PSU comes with? Mine being Corsair RM750x Cables. Is there a chance with even fully sleeved cables that they might be unreliable or even have the potential to fry your GPU? 100 bucks for the pro Cablemod line isn't cheap but are they worth it in terms of safety and quality? Also what do you use? Thanks!

    Is it worth it to go Ultrawide?

    Do you use an Ultrawide alongside a 16:9 or just one single Ultrawide?

    NEW PSU Tier List

    this is a A+ tier correct? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817139233 Is there anything else I should consider around this price range? Thanks.
  15. Hi all, I plan on getting a new gaming monitor and try to find the best ultrawide under 1000 bucks. Alienware AW3418DW is currently on sale at Cosco for 729, I've also considered the X34 Predator but what other screens should I take a look at? Thanks. Another option would be to get two monitors but that seems like it's even more, thoughts?
