  1. Yep all of the RAM sticks work in slots 1 and 2, while none of them work in the other slots. I have shined a bright LED light into the DIMM slots and everything seems normal. How would you go about testing the CPU? I'm using the H150i Pro AIO from Corsair. I had a little trouble with the backplate they shipped, as when it was fully tightened, it was still loose. A quick Google search shows others with this same issue, so I was far from impressed with Corsair for that. I had to get some rubber washers in order to make the backplate tight. I made sure to torque each of the 4 screws equally, and the backplate doesn't appear to be sqewed in any direction, or tighter on one side than the other.
  2. Hey guys, Hopefully someone can share their opinion with me on an issue im having with my new build. Full specs below. What's happening is, when I populate the 3rd and/or 4th DIMM slot on my motherboard with a RAM module, the board fails to post. The system turns on, then off, then on and does this for a short time, then the DRAM LED on my motherboard remains lit. The system remains powered on, however it doesn't POST. Currently I have the system posting and booting up successfully with RAM installed in the 1st and 2nd DIMM slots. Obviously this means it's only running in single channel however the system does appear to be stable. On this board you use slots 2 and 4 for dual channel operation when only using two sticks of RAM, but this fails to POST due to the problematic 4th slot.Currently, the only way to POST successfully is to populate slots 1 and 2 (or just 1 or just 2). I have read this can be a sign of bent pins on the CPU socket, so I went ahead and removed my cooler to double check, but there are definitely no bent pins. I took great care installing the CPU (this isnt my first build) so I would have been surprised if I had bent the pins. I have 4 8GB sticks of Corsair Dominator RGB RAM, and no matter which ones I use, the result is the same. Is it possible I have a faulty motherboard? The RAM is running with the correct XMP2 profile in the BIOS. I also made sure to update to the latest BIOS. I would welcome any thoughts on this issue, and please let me know if I need to supply any more information. Thanks!

  3. Nice. Is it overclocked? If it doesnt bottleneck a 2080ti you're golden. Ive always read its not worth upgrading from 4770k to 4790k but maybe thats not true.
  4. No just the middle one. I have either web browsers or temp monitoring software displayed on the left and right. Yeah maybe I should try for more. My temps dont go over 60 degrees C so I have some headroom. Thanks. Ok thanks. I have been just using the presets up until now but I will manually change those settings to see how I go.
  5. Hey guys brand new to the forum and wanted to run something by you all. I have searched before posting this and found some posts which kinda half answered my question but not totally. So here is the deal, I have an overclocked i7 4770k at 4.4ghz, super stable under water. It has been great up until very recently when I bought Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Really love this game but I have noticed for the first time ever that my CPU is actually running at 100% in task manager. From some research it does seem to be an issue with this game and poor optimization however that doesn't change the fact i'm running 100% CPU usage. Wildlands is the only time I have ever experienced my CPU at 100% (apart from stress testing my overclock). I have 3 dell 23 inch monitors which are all 1080p 60hz (all 3 overclocked to 77hz). I am aware that 1080p does put more pressure on my CPU but to replace my current monitors with equal quality 1440p ones is too much money at the mo. I currently run a GTX 1060 6GB which is a great little card, but I would like to upgrade. I was thinking on the RTX 2070 as I would much rather purchase a new card with warranty as buy a second hand GTX 1080 (for example) off the likes of ebay. I would like to get something that gives me a 60 fps min at very high settings. I have ruled out 60 fps at Ultra as being outside my budget just at the moment. With my CPU running flat out, does this mean that I would be wasting my money upgrading or will it only be a minor CPU bottleneck? Currently my 1060 does sit at like 97 to 100% usage also, but I wouldn't like to spend the cash on something better for it not to be fully utilized. I should mention that I currently don't suffer any freezes or stutters or anything like that, even with browser windows open on my left and right monitors. I'm not really in the situation to go all out on a new CPU, Motherboard, RAM etc, so it would be really great if my 4770k still had some life left in it. If it didnt, I will simply put a hold on a GPU upgrade. My full PC specs are: i7 4770k at 4.4ghz (custom water cooling loop) EVGA 1060 6GB SC Single Fan 32GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600mhz RAM Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H MB 1 x Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD 1 x Samsung 840 250 GB SSD 1 x WD Black 1TB Corsair HX850 PSU Thanks for reading guys. I hope I havent broken any rules on my first post lol.
