    Black screen with Mini-DP?

    Screen works fine btw, when using Intel onboard graphics or a gtx 770 I have lying around.
  2. I recently swapped in an older HD 7950. And I've been using it over the weekend on a 1080p monitor with DVI + HDMI. It's been running fine. I've also been stress-testing it over 3 hours without a hitch, so the card seems healthy enough. Now I wanted to use it on my 1440p 144hz monitor, and the only input is a Display Port because of the G-Sync module. As soon as I go to plug it in, all of my monitors go black. I can unplug it and I get my other monitors back, working like they should. Also having the 1440p monitor connected while booting, is fine, until windows boots, then the monitor shuts off again. It doesn't seem to be a driver issue, I've been using DDU in safe-mode to get rid of old drivers, and reinstalling new, but this still happens. As I'm writing this I realise that It might just be related to the fact that the monitor is using a g-sync module, as it's only form of connection. Can this have anything to do with it?..... Update: Seems to be related to the g-sync module in some way. Cause I can connect the mini-dp port to any other display port monitor and it works fine. Does anyone know what to do about this? The monitor in question is an Acer XB270HU.

    Passive coolers for modern GPUs?

    hmm... I would love to have a passively cooled GPU. Under load it's hard to beat watercooling for noise on the GPU... How are the ASUS Strix cards? I'm thinking that's the next best thing to go for as I'm not in the market for 1060s and the like...
  4. Yo o/ As the title says, I'm wondoring wether or not coolers like these are still made. I recall seeing passive aftermarket coolers in the past. Basicly just a big ol' radiator on the gpu and pcb. Cheers if you know about any that are still being made for the modern cards.

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    Yea so to clearify, the CPU was bought as new. But I only started experiencing this issue recently (a few months ago). Up until then it has been run at stock speeds and stock voltages.

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    Well yea. Atm I'm running at stock voltage again and so far so good, but we'll see if it continues.. If this runs fine without a GPU, the next step is to throw a new GPU in and see how that affects things...

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    When you say "way outside intel spec"..... I mean it's not running hot ever... I might experiement with going back down to stock voltage.. Maybe it was an anomaly with the gpu...

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    I dunno man... I've never done anything crazy with it. So i'm thinking it might've been a voltage delivery issue.

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    Yea, i Just did and I havn't encountered any issues yet... So it's very likely that it's my GPU.. But I'm still a bit puzzled to the whole CPU issue I was fighting a little while back, and to why I need to run my cpu at 1.4v for my pc to be stable..... I've been dreaming of getting rid of my loop for a while now, so I guess this is the time... Just do NOT feel like buying a new GPU these days, but maybe I can pick something up for cheap from a buddy or something.... But yea... So sad...... 980 served me well... Had it literally since day one, and was hoping it would've held out till next generation... Anyway... gonna keep doing some troubleshooting here, and if anyone has any clues to the whole CPU issue, please let me know.

    GPU, CPU or PSU? I'm at a loss.

    UPDATE: Okay, so I get similar artifacts during boot even...
  11. Yo o/ So I've had this combo for a while: Mobo: Asus Maximus VIII Gene. CPU: i7 6700k @ 4GHz. RAM: 16GB of HyperX DDR4 Memory. PSU: 550W Corsair something something - fully modular. GPU: GTX Geforce 980 TLDR; So recently I started having some troubles with my PC. Firstly I started getting some weird bluescreens and after a LOT of trial and error with reinstalling windows and the like, I first thought that it was RAM related, then SSD but turns out that manually setting the CPU voltage to 1.4v fixed the blue-screens. For a while I had no issues again, up until the machine started with some odd freezes, just for a few seconds to then continue. Also really bad performance on 3d accelerated programs. Just opening something like spotify, discord or google chrome would TANK performance of any other 3d application and the pc as a whole. This I fixed with using DDU and reinstalling drivers completely. For about a week It was going fine until I decided to reinstall windows 10, again. For the usual reasons, space, all sorts of crap on the boot drive, so on... But, since the reinstall I've encountered problems again. As an example, every time I start my PC there's ALWAYS a freeze of about 2-3 seconds. Just after windows boots onto the desktop. I've done the same with reinstalling drivers and the like... Doesn't seem to have fixed that particular issue. Then the other night my PC just crashed with graphical artifacts on the screen: This particular picture is just me watching some stuff in VLC. This happened in game too. It hickups with these artifacts and freezes for about 3-5 seconds. Then the sound continues and seemingly windows, but the screen / graphics never recovers and a hard reset is required. So this happened a few times last night too. Monitoring temperatures debunks that as an issue, steady 50-70c depending on the application. Today, I can't even boot into windows, it happens instantly on startup. Temperatures that I've been able to gather while I could still run the PC with a game, are normal according to readouts on speedfan. However idle temperatures are in BIOS is 38c in a watercooling loop that holds both the CPU and GPU. In a relatively cool room, I'd imagine somewhere around 20c. Is my GPU fried? Is it a PSU issue considering the CPU troubles? Maybe it's even the motherboard? I've run RAM tests with no errors (6 hours). Is it some oddball temperature fault, is my system really overheating but sensors are not able to read it? I'm at a complete loss, and going out to get a new GPU right now with how prices are atm. would be really unfortunate...
  12. Yo / I've been having serious issues with my pc for the first time in two years. A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to re-install windows and since then I've been having these issues. These are my SPECS: Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VIII Gene CPU: 6700k RAM: 16 gigs of hyper x DDR4 GPU: GTX 980 SSD: Vertex 4 256gb (5y-old and bricked) - 2x Samsung 850 PRO 512gb (2y-old and 1y-old). OS: Windows 10 Home TLDR: PROBLEM: Random crashes with and without BSOD. Does not seem to relate to load. Prime95 + furmark testing for an hour led to no suspicions that either heat or load was the problem. ISSUE: - I think it's a RAM issue or a GPU issue, I'm leaning towards it being a RAM issue because of corrupted files of brand new windows installs on several SSD's. - I do have one other thing that it might be, but I really can't test. The PSU, thought it's pretty new and I know it's got plenty of capacity for the system. - I have NOT tried other versions of windows, but reading this thread makes me think it's not windows, though I'll try windows 7 if I find any other culprits: First it ran about a week and a half without trouble, after the reinstall to windows 10 home. But then on thursday it completely shat itself. During the week it twice shut off and instantly restarted without a bluescreen, just black screen and reboot. Then it started getting random crashes with BSOD. Not always the same error message, usually something new, but one returning one was WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR. So I've done a bunch of digging, this error usually happens when it's a hardware failure. And so I installed windows 10 on another SSD. I'm only using SSD's and it seems like one of my drives got bricked in the process. Not this could be a complete coinsidence as that SSD is 5 years old and was probably on it's last legs anyway, but yea, just weird. Same problems on the new SSD. I started to suspect the RAM too, so first I ran a memtest86 to see if it would catch anything. I didn't let it finish but after having it run for an hour it didn't find anything. So I thought w/e. I tried removing my GPU and running just CPU onboard plus ram. Then it suddenly crashed looking like this: This was flickering. It happened that one time, and didn't happen again. So then I suspected the RAM again. I removed all sticks but one, and booted with 4gigs. Then I ran prime95 for 10 minutes, monitoring temps and activity. No issues. Another stick for a total of 8gigs. No issues, so on and so forth until 4 sticks and 16gigs with my GPU as well running furmark at the same time. Monitoring everything with seemingly no issues apart from a couple of hickups in furmark, though I do believe this is normal behaviour still, but it's worth keeping in mind. So none of these stress tests highlighted ANY problems. I ran the machine with furmark for almost an hour with no issues, then I go to load up a youtube video afterwards and boom, bluescreen. I've tried another browser than chrome, still happens. I was then suspecting the GPU drivers. As on my 2y-old install I didn't have any of these issues, and I was not running latest GPU drivers. Still happens with older drivers. Ultimately, I updated bios and chipset drivers / firmware. It seemed to work instantly. No crashes, nothing. For a day...... And then today I've been running the pc for several hours watching stuff on 2nd screen with games running. Daily use, and then out of the blue, boom, restart w/o blue screen. Restarted, did it again, restarted then BSOD. I'm back to suspecting the RAM being the issue, but it could still be GPU. I'm going to run MEMTEST86 again over night to see if it finds anything when it gets to finish, but I doubt it. I've also run windows own memory diagnostic tool, and it found no issues. The reason I believe it's not the GPU is this: The windows installs ended up corrupted over time. The more it crashed the weirder it got and then suddenly it lost the bootmgr too. So I could no longer boot. To me this is a STRONG indication of either RAM issues or an SSD issue. Though the current SSD is less than 2 years old and according to SSD health tools it should be in good shape. I've never had ram die on me before, or had any issue of this sort and It's really pushing my knowledge. Slowly I'm working my way through possible reasons why it's acting like this, but I'm running out of options and I need someone with better knowledge and possible past experience with a similar issue, to have a take on this.

    Dead or Alive - VRLA Batteries? HELP!

    Well.. THat's what they all say honestly. Just a different 'brand' every time... I don't really have anything else to go by regarding what the actual battery says. EDIT: I suppose the "Initial current" is the recommended maximum charging current refered to in the manual? http://www.ritarpower.com/upimg/20151211115022783.pdf EDIT 2: Then there's this part:
