    AeroMagnus reacted to Mick Naughty in Davinci resolve audio issues   
    Can you try another encoder? I’ve had the same issue but it depended on the output file type. I used some that were recommended by YouTube and also had to increase the render quality. I used max anyway to compensate for the downscaling during upload.

    You can't just plug it into random ports in the back.
    Blue = Line In (e.g. audio signal going INTO the motherboard)

    Are you using analog Green Line Out, for your headphones?
    What about your speakers?
    Are you speakers also using a the Green Line Out, or USB of some sort?

    I do get a drop-down menu.
    Did you download the Realtek Audio drivers for your motherboard?
    I don't mean audio drivers Windows automatically downloads, but the drivers from AsRock's website.

    I did a quick test...so this is what I have connected for audio...
    Audio from monitor speakers (2x since I have two monitors) 5.1 speakers from the motherboard's rear I/O (green-orange-black ports) Headphones using the front audio port Headphone using USB port 5.1 speakers shows up as --  'Speakers (Realtek Audio)
    Headphones connected to the front panel shows up as -- Realtek HD Audio 2nd Output (Realtek Audio)

    It shouldn't matter if the speakers are old or new.
    They are analog, so doesn't require drivers.
    The computer would just see it as regular a$$ speakers plugged in.
    Disconnect your the headphone + mic connect the the front, and reconnect them.
    Your screenshot is from the RealTek App.
    I basically have everything the same as you...

    What does your Control Panel > Sound look like?
    This is what I have...
    Speakers = speakers hooked up to the back
    RealTek HD Audio 2nd Output = headphones plugged into the front

    Ok, if you're honestly looking for a better kit of ram to pair with that 2600, micron rev. e typically goes well since it is less stressful on the memory controller and clocks well, I'll link a kit that I found below
    Honestly though, depending on what ram you currently have, it might not be worth it to upgrade

    AeroMagnus reacted to fordy_rounds in DIY RGB?   
    Things to be aware of when using LEDs:
    Each LED has a voltage drop across the LED to light it. Give it too little, it won't light; give it too much, it'll draw too much current and burn out. That means you have three ways to wire a bunch of them:
    1. In series: this might be the easiest way, but you have to factor in the voltage drop. If your LEDs each require, say, 1V, and you put more than 5 of them in series on 5V power, you won't get light from any of them. However, this is easy because you only need one current-limiting resistor in the series (and it can be a smaller value since it's not as high of a voltage drop across it).
    2. In parallel: this allows you to put more LEDs, but be aware of the current draw from each. You could put e.g. 100 LEDs on 5V, and have no issues, since each is dropping the voltage by only 1V. However, each LED should have its own resistor, and your power supply needs to be able to supply enough current to all of them (i.e., if each LED requires 10mA, then 100 of them requires 1A).
    3. What you might call a grid, you put a few in series and put all the serieses in parallel. With this topology, you might put, say, 4 LEDs in series with a single resistor, and do this 25 times, then put the groups in parallel. This would then mean you have 4V drop across each series, allowing you to use smaller resistors, and have only a 250mA current draw. This may be the best way to wire a lot of LEDs.
    Note that the values I gave here are all purely theoretical; use the actual values for your components. Look at the datasheets if you have them or can find them online; otherwise, use your multimeter to measure the drop across your LEDs (wire an LED with a resistor and power it up; measure voltage across just the LED, not the resistor).
    Also, if doing anything in parallel, be certain to use a resistor on each parallel leg, especially if using LEDs from different vendors or in different colors. That way the resistor picks up the slack of any possible mismatches in voltage drops.

    AeroMagnus reacted to -rascal- in Hyper 212 on AM4?   
    I don't know how Cooler Master is packaging the Hyper 212 EVO with the AM4 bracket.
    For Intel, they ALSO have a 'X' bracket -- I am using a Hyper 212 EVO on my i7-8086K PC right now.
    They might have a couple of 'X' brackets included with the CPU cooler -- you need to use the one for AM4.
    The brackets can open & close, so you may need to open + adjust the 4x screws to line-up with the mounting holes on the motherboard.
    Sorry for the big picture, just took it on my phone, and uploaded it here.
    The Intel 'X' bracket with the screws and opening the 'X' up to fit LGA 1151 socket.

    Looks like it should be AM4 compatible, old stock might not be but it would have to be like 3+ years old at this point so it should be fine, if not Cooler Master can provide AM4 brackets for free I believe (don't quote me on that). Or you can return/exchange it with Amazon.

    Thank you very much. I would be lying if I told you that I didn't chose it for that cyberdemon logo. 
    And sincerely I don't use USB 3.0 at all as my system is fairly entry level and I don't think I will be upgrading it soon. 
    I just wanted something to help with thermals. Thanks again

    Hey there. Here are my thoughts:
    For $70 - $80, I'm a little bit disappointed it comes with only 1 x USB 3.0 (and 2 x USB 2.0). Other cases like the Phanteks P300 ($59.99, on sale), EVGA DG-75 ($59.99, on sale), and CORSAIR 275R ($79.99), offer 2 x USB 3.0. (Personal Bias: I prefer quality over quantity.) The mesh front panel looks like it'll help with thermals, but do note that the case only has 2 x 120mm fans included. Also, according to the specs, the front will only fit 2 x 120mm fans or 2 x 140mm fans, as opposed to the 3 x 120mm or 2 x 140mm fan options offered by almost all other mid-tower ATX cases. Generally speaking, mesh cases can be louder than non-mesh variants, and I doubt the case is outfitted with noise-dampening material, especially at its price point. Something to keep in mind, perhaps? Or just have a pair of good headphones ready. Plenty of storage space with 3 x 3.5" drive bays and 4 x 2.5" drive bays. Rubber grommets and holes seem to offer fairly hassle-free cable management, which is nice.

    AeroMagnus reacted to Stoigeboiii in Should I get a new case or monitor first?   
    Do you have any intake fans at the top? If you can't get 75fps on 720p then you won't get 75fps on 1080p on the new monitor. So maybe you need to get the case first and see if it makes a change. I'd personally see if I can saw a hole bottom half of the front panel and add a fan(or even one to the top). Then make sure airflow is good. I don't see any airflow for the CPU either so maybe elevating it and putting fans on the bottom would be good. I could be wrong but it'd cool to tinker if you would get a new case anyway! Like if you break your current case then just get a new one.

    AeroMagnus reacted to Spotty in Got this for around 20 CAD, will it fry my system?   
    A good 450W power supply will power a system with a Ryzen 2600 + RX 580 just fine. You're looking at less than 300W power draw from the system while under load in games and such. No need for 650W unit.
    I wouldn't bother looking at used power supplies on ebay. Power supply is one of those things that you should buy new. RAM? GPU? CPU? Buy those used no worries. Not PSUs or HDDs.
    Keep a look out on Newegg, amazon, microcenter, etc in the coming weeks because they will be having their Black Friday sales so you might be able to get a brand new power supply at a pretty good price. That might also be a good time to look at picking up a B450 motherboard, Ryzen 2600, the RX580, plus anything else you need for your new system. They often have CPU + Motherboard or CPU + Motherboard + RAM bundles as well where you can save an extra $30-$50 or sometimes more which practically pays for the new power supply.
    Cooler Master MWE V2 are okay
    Corsair CX450M would be a good cheap option
    Corsair CX550 (not the CX450 since it only has 1 PCIe cable and some RX580s require 2) would be a better choice for a few extra bucks

    The Rosewill Photon 550W on newegg has a pretty good sale at the moment bringing it down to $65.
    Probably heaps more but those are just a couple of decent budget units I can think of off the top of my head.
