  1. That MOBO only supports up to 3200mhz, that might be the problem. Also have you tried putting the GPU in the top lane? EDIT: What PSU do you use? Maybe it's too weak.
  2. Would an Athlon 3000g and 8gb ram be enough do you think?
  3. So my idea was to have a more simple PC connected to my TV to use for DVDs, Blurays, and streaming movies when Chromecast doesn't wanna cooperate. It would not be used for any gaming at all. I'm pretty unsure on how much power is required to just stream (up to) 4k videos. My friend has an old PC with a GTX 650 and FX-6100 that I was thinking I could get off her back and just connect to my PC, but a few people on the Discord channel those parts will be too weak to stream 4k video. What do I actually need? Is a modern CPU with integrated graphics (like Athlon 3000G) enough or do I need a more powerful GPU? Again, this is not for gaming, just for watching videos.
  4. Thank you! It's available in some Swedish stores.
  5. Hi. I recently got a Deepcool GH-01 A-RGB GPU-holder which needs to connect to a 3 pin RGB header but I stupidly didn't realise the motherboard I'm trying to use it on (ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING) uses 4 pin. Does an adapter of some sort exist? Been trying to Google but can't find any.
  6. Thank you, but it looks like it doesn't support RGB. I've been looking at the fans I've planned to buy (Corsair HD120) and they seem to include a hub with the pack of 3. Does anyone know if this is enough to just pop in the mobo and connect the fans to? And will they work with iCUE?
  7. Hi. My girlfriend has an Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING ATX AM4 motherboard and a Corsair SPEC-OMEGA RGB ATX Mid Tower case. The case comes with 2 RGB fans and she wants to add up to 3 more but the mobo, from what I've seen, seem to have 3 fan headers and 2 RGB headers. I understand there are fan hubs that you can purchase and I've looked around but there's so many and some doesn't seem to allow RGB. I'm just really confused on what would be the cheapest and simplest solution. Is there a single product that you connect to the mobo and can plug both cable and RGB cables in? Thanks.
  8. Hello. Does anyone know exactly what type of fans are included in the Carbide SPEC-OMEGA RGB case? My girlfriend has this case and want to add more case fans but there's like 5 different RGB fan types from Corsair (SP, HD, ML, LL, QL etc.) and I want to make sure the new fans aren't worse than the ones already included.
  9. Thanks for the quick answer. Since I don't have experience with overclocking at all (never done it before) I probably won't be going "full ham", just want to try something light at first I think. My cooler is a Noctua NH-U12S.
  10. Greetings gamers. I just ordered some upgrades for my PC including a Ryzen 5 3600, 5700 XT and a MSI B450-A Pro Max motherboard. I was going for the Tomahawk Max mobo first but went for the latter because less money and better looking (yeah very important ik). I tried comparing them but they looked identical spec wise, what am I missing? However, after reading about how x570 boards have better cooling and are more optimized for 3rd gen Ryzen I'm having second thoughts. Is overclocking these parts gonna overheat the mobo? Should I return it and spend more on a x570 board and future proof? I'm still learning about mobos, pls be gentle. Thanks for reading.
  11. I often see topics about how PCs use a lot of power and how to make your PC use less, but is 300-500W really that much? I mean other machines such as leaf blowers sometimes use 3000W. I understand those require a lot of hard physical movement to do their job, but things inside a PC like processors do billions of calculations per second. How come they don't draw as much power as let's say a drilling machine with cable?
  12. I kinda want to upgrade from my current GTX 1060 and i5-7600K, but the whole build is just slightly over two years old and it feels like wasted money if I upgrade so soon. How often do you swap your parts? Do you upgrade RAM and GPU more often than CPU? Do you always want to stay high-end? Let me know! ?
  13. I'm trying to update the firmware of my Corsair Ironclaw RGB Wireless mouse via iCUE but keep getting the message "Plug the USB cable to start the update" even when it's already plugged in... Anyone know a fix? It's not the end of the world since the mouse works just fine but it's annoying to have the "update" button just sitting there being useless... EDIT: This has been solved! I don't know what exactly solved it, after a couple of restarts and re-plugs of the cable it suddenly decided to finally update.
  14. Hello! My friend's PC sometimes randomly shuts down or restarts when she's doing anything more "heavy" like playing a game or installing something. There's no blue screen of death with an error message, the screen just goes black then either restarts or stays that way. I tried to find a solution on Google and saw that the problem might be the CPU. I checked how the CPU (Ryzen 5 2600x) was performing using Ryzen Master and the EDC is almost constantly at above 90%, mostly around 98-99. I followed some guides on Google and changed the power plan to Microsoft's own "Balanced" instead of AMD's "Ryzen Balanced", also changed the minimun processor state from 100% to 20%. However, the EDC still at above 90% at almost all times. I don't even know if the CPU's EDC is the cause of the shut downs or if it's something else. If anyone has any suggestions please throw them at me. ?
