  1. Really good so far. I've gotten so used to my 2012 MacBook Air that this PC feels like lightning. I'm mostly going to play shooters and br's. On fortnite with low settings I get about 450-500fps. and on epic settings its still around 180-200fps with no overclocking

  4. I decided to document my first pc build ever, after getting it fully assembled I went to turn it on and got absolutely nothing, no led's no fans spinnings. So I had to go into troubleshooting mode and all together probably spent 20 hours on building/troubleshooting/watching videos/and posting on forums. I couldn't figure it out so I had my dad come over, who's a master electrician to take a took at it and he spotted the problem in 2 seconds. I had only 14 pins of my 24 pin connector plugged in on my power supply side, while the 10 pin connector was just hanging there...won't make that mistake again. All together I spent just over $1400 before tax. I'm really happy with how it turned out and even though it was a pain in the ass, learning how to troubleshoot will be valuable in the future. Thanks to the people on the troubleshooting thread that helped me out. I also made a video out of it:
  5. PROBLEM SOLVED!!! After about 20 hours of troubleshooting I had my Dad take a look at it and he found my mistake in 2 seconds... I didn't have both pieces of my main power connectors plugged into my power supply. Total rookie mistake but I definitely learned a lot about troubleshooting so I'd say it was worth it. The system looks great imo. Thanks for the suggestions everybody!
  6. Ok, thanks. My friend is getting rid of his old system soon so I'll see if i can test with his motherboard
  7. @TVwazhere any thoughts based on the pictures above?^
  8. Here’s some pictures of my test bench. I took it out of the case so it’s easier to troubleshoot.
  9. I tried booting in and outside of the case.
  10. Yes, I can send a picture/video in about 2 hours when I'm home. I'm honestly thinking it's a dead Motherboard but that might just be a nubie assumption
  11. I will try this, so far I've only tested my main 24-pin cable
  12. Hello, I just built my very first computer, went to turn it on and got absolutely no lights or response on the case or any other components. Here's the specs/the troubleshooting I've done thus far in the past 2 days. Also since this is my first build I don't have spare parts lying around to swap out for testing. Specs: CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports DUO MOBO: MSI X570-A Pro ATX AM4 Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb Storage: ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD GPU: MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8gb Gaming X Video Card Case: Thermaltake V200 RGB Mid Tower PSU: Corsair RM(2019) 650w 80+ Gold Fully Modular Troubleshooting Done Thus Far: -Tried multiple outlets and made sure the PSU switch was turned on -Removed the case switch cable termination and made a closure on the 2 pins with a screwdriver -Placed a paperclip in my 24-pin main power connector to test the PSU(the fan did turn on) -Removed all power cables from my motherboard and PSU including my main 24-pin cable, PCIe cable, and both CPU cables and re-seeded them to make sure they had good contact(did this about 3-4 times) -Did the same thing with my graphics card and memory. Also tried single channel memory with each stick -Again, I did this same procedure for my from case button cables including the Power and HDD LED and the Power and Reset switch -Setup a test bench outside of the case to ensure things were seeded properly -Lastly I used a multimeter to do some pin readings on my main 24-pin cable. I got about 3-4 reading that seemed off, they read around .002 I followed this video as a reference for testing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tr70VyoACPg Any help is greatly appreciated.
  13. Hello, I'm building my very first pc, it's pretty much finished and I'm looking back at my manual realizing that I put my GPU in the top slot(which youtubers tell me to do). That top slot is PCIe 4.0 x 16 is there going to be any downside to leaving my card in that spot since it isn't PCIe 4.0? The GPU is a RTX 2070 Super Gaming X, PCIe x 16 3.0. Thanks
