  1. Yep. Checked the monitor connection - no change. Cleared CMOS and now everything is fine, but still on the old BIOS version. That's for the comment.
  2. Hi all, I was trying to update the BIOS on my B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC with M-Flash. I downloaded the latest BIOS from the official MSI website and put the unzipped file on the USB drive. I ejected it in windows. I shut the computer down and opened the BIOS. I selected M-flash and it warned me that it would restart and self boot into "Flash Mode". It restarted and now it shows me a black screen. I'm a bit scared right now as I don't want to do anything wrong. Should I reboot the PC? Clear the CMOS? Try to flash the BIOS with MSI Flashback? The fans are spinning, the lights on the board and on the RAM are on, none of the EZ Debug lights are on.
  3. Ok, I had something similar in mind. Also a good idea, thanks.
  4. 1. Budget & Location Germany. About 800€, might be able to go to 900 soon. I already have a hyper 212 BE and a Meshify C because they were on sale. 2. Aim Occasionally a bit of video editing but mainly gaming, looking to run Minecraft, Overwatch and maybe other games in the future. 3. Monitors I have a 1440p 60z monitor rn but plan to upgrade to another 1 or 2 cheap ones later. 4. Peripherals I have a mouse and keyboard, but would need W10 (but I've heard you can get that quite cheap) 5. Why are you upgrading? I'm upgrading because a 2011 MacBook isn't great for Minecraft, Overwatch and potentially other games in the future.
  5. Ok, thanks for the input. I might get that one then.
  6. Yes. Something I will edit into the origian post is that I am located in germany. How is this? https://www.amazon.de/Samsung-C34J791W-Curved-Monitor-Thunderbolt-3/dp/B07BX55MB6/ref=mp_s_a_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=Samsung+CJ791+34"+Thunderbolt+3+Ultra-Wide+QHD+(3440x1440)+100Hz+Curved+QLED+Monitor+(LC34J791WTNXZA)&linkCode=gs3&linkId=c70d8cacffed0409b9b4f191bd3b1f83&qid=1568136916&s=computers&sr=1-1-fkmr0
  7. Hi all, I am looking to buy a TB3 monitor. Bigger than 30" (if possible), 1440p, in terms of refresh rates 60hz would be ideal. Budget: Under 800. Under 500 would be good, but not necessary. I am located in Germany. Thanks, do tell me if I forgot anything, Catchears
  8. Hi all, I have (as the title says) got a question about thunderbolt 3 monitors. Say I have a desktop and a laptop. The laptop has Thunderbolt 3, but the desktop is stuck with DP. If I buy a thunderbolt 3 display, is there any way I can have my desktop connected to the display (all the time) but switch over to the laptop whenever I connect it(without messing with cables each time)? Is the best way to do this to get a DP to USB C adapter and then just plug my laptop in and change the source on the monitor each time? I will post the exact monitor below once I know which one I 'm getting. Thanks, Catchears
  9. I believe the Strix is the best, followed by the pulse. I cannot say anything on value as you didnt give us prices.
  10. Sorry, bit it doesn't work like that. I believe the data simply gets mirrored. Get a RX5700XT with a decent cooler (like the Sapphire Pulse). Save some money and maybe upgrade something else in the future.
  11. Am I the only person who has WiFi at home yet still uses mobile data when not watching youtube because the 4 down and 0.5 up I have are depressingly slow?

  12. I only have an old macbook. Android File Transfer cannot detect my phone, although I don't know if that is simply due to MacOS. It does however seem to pop up as a network interface.
  13. Hi all, Recently, I had my phone charging from a powerbank while walking. I later sat down, only to realise that I had completely bent the cable. So I ordered a new cable (the same one which came with my phone) and have been using that since. Today (I normally use wireless charging, but occasionally need fast charging), I noticed that it was no longer 'fast charging'. I will attach a screenshot of the lock screen (look towards the bottom; it says charging, no mention of fast) and a screenshot from an app to measure the rate at which my battery is charging. The S9 is insured, so I could get a replacement if the port is definitely damaged. I am using the AC adapter which came with the device. Things I have tried: Clear cache Hard restart Check the fast charging option in settings Different wall plug Different AC adapter I have factory reset my phone before (also due to battery reasons), however that was before this incident. Thanks, Catchears
  14. Yes If you want Ok (I would get Corsair LPX, but personal preference) Ok... But depending on resolution and frame rate of your recordings that may fill up real fast Ok Nononono Unless you really need RT, get a 5700XT (like the Sapphire pulse Not really the best airflow... maybe get a meshify C if you can Thats good
  15. Also, which resolution? Which games? Which software? If you have a monitor, which one? If you don't, do you need one? Budget? I cannot check budget or monitor on the list as it is not public.
  16. Not quite sure, but I would say thay the hot liquid from the GPU is flowing directly to the CPU.
  17. Sapphire is good. Pulse is good, Nitro+ is better, yet unrealeased.
  18. Mark your own post (or mine ?) as the correct answer so that the post appears solved (even tho you have changed the title). Just press the little tick.
