  1. Found out Nvidia has some dumb feature called battery boost but it is fixed now
  2. Hello, I went to play battlefield 4 on my laptop which has an i7 9750h and a GTX 1650 and the average frames per second on low graphics was 10 fps while plugged in and I feel like this is low considering the specs? Everything is up to date and task manager says battlefield 4 is using the GTX 1650 as it is under 100% load and the laptop doesn't feel hot so I don't think it is thermal throttling. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would think a GTX 1650 could output at least 60fps on 1080p low graphic settings
  3. I have this ram kit: DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB (corsair.com) I did not have the chance to try another power supply because I only have one that is enough wattage for the system. For the ram before my drives stopped being recognized I tried with both xmp on and xmp off without any changes.
  4. Specs: Hello, I've been having this blue screening issue on my desktop. It only bluescreens under gpu load like gaming/benchmarking and windows does not create logs for it. I have tried 5 different gpus, 3 RTX 2080 supers and 2 RTX 3080's all from EVGA with no luck on any. Since none of the GPU's work I thought it could be the motherboard because I don't think all 5 gpus could have been bad. So I sent the motherboard into warranty for warranty but they responded with the motherboard is completely fine but is still bluescreening and now my m.2 drives plus sata drives are not being recog
  5. all the apps work and no. The windows install is over a year old
  6. Hello, In my windows start menu, why are some of the icons darker then the normal colored ones and how do I fix it? Thank you
  7. Hello, I have a gigabyte aorus x570 Xtreme motherboard and I need the serial number for warranty but I cannot find it? It is not in the normal gigabyte spot since the connectors are sideways and the pcie slots are covered with the heatsink. Does anyone own this board and know where I can find the serial number?
  8. it was fine for a while but it blue screened again Guess I'll loosen up the back plate even more
  9. My RGB cables just went up in smoke...

      oh shit, is everything else okay?

      Yeah luckily, I shut power off and cooled the surrounding cables in time. I have no idea what caused them to start smoking

      Dude - same thing just happened to me. I connected a Corsair light pro to the Lian Yi Strmr using the RGB cable from ebay as suggested (RGB to ARGB Adapter Link) and the middle wire from the Lian Yi Strmer began to smoke instantly. I cannot figure out why or how to fix this...

  10. Ok, sounds good. Just watch it crash again, I'll be so mad lol
  11. After removing the backplate it hasn't crashed yet, should I go through the screws holding in the waterblock itself?
  12. Ok, thank you. And I removed the backplate and it hasn't crashed yet... Could the backplate have an affect? One of the screws was really tight when removing it and I had to use pliers to help remove the screw. (pliers didn't come in contact with pcb)
  13. So after I clean the pcie connector the only next steps is to take the block off, put the cooler back on and test the gpu?
