  1. None at all. I'm going to try to get a clunker GPU just to test out if I have display or not, but that likely won't be for a few dats. Any other ideas? I forgot to add, but this all started when I clicked restart in Windows instead of shut down. Ever since, this happened and not even the BIOS splash shows up.
  2. Monitor is on, tried a different power cable, Ryzen has no iGPU so I can't test that. I do have some information though, this started as I clicked restart in Windows and it wouldn't turn back on.
  3. Actually, the CPU, VGA, then BOOT debug LEDs turn on sequentially when I press the power button, but they don't stay on.
  4. Just a screen of black nothingness. Fans are fine (albeit a little louder than usual when I power it on), and yeah once I cut power they stop normally. As for the LEDs, I'll let you know ASAP. Didn't even know my mobo had them.
  5. I updated it before building just to make sure seeing as the mobo is a gen. older. I assumed it was fine because it's been running like a dream the past two weeks.
  6. To begin, I've got: - R5 3600 @ Stock - 16GB DDR4-3600 (running at the default speeds to make sure that's not the problem) - MSI B450 Gaming Plus - Asus TURBO GTX 960 Built it around two weeks ago and it was working fine until today. I've tried resetting the CMOS already, and also unplugging the Reset Switch connector as MSI B450 boards apparently have problems with that, but no dice. Anyone have ideas?
  7. I could understand them scaling well at 4K since it'll be a clean division, but what about 1440p? How exactly can 1080p content be shown at 1440p and not look blurry?
  8. Oh yeah for any MP game I play I disable all syncs and just play with maximum FPS. The thing is, even on the single player games I play I get well over 144FPS. They're usually not very demanding.
  9. I would but having to go in and enable it on a per-game basis just reeks of annoyance. I'm a set and forget kind of person, unless it's an in-game option. It's just that VSYNC at 144Hz isn't nearly as terrible as it was at 60Hz since it adds a lot less delay. The difference can be anywhere from a 10ms reduction to a greater than 20ms reduction. Not to mention RTINGS puts my monitor (27GL850-B) as having 4.13ms of input delay at 144Hz. Much less than my old 60Hz TN from 2013.
  10. Fair enough, but I usually play Japanese games and we all know how they are with ports. It'd be a miracle to see an internal FPS limiter in them.
  11. So it's a sensible solution to just use GSYNC + VSYNC until capping becomes viable for me?
  12. I just got a GSYNC monitor and I can't really cap my games using a limiter as RTSS crashes games, and the NVCP limiter creates stutter. My only option left was just using VSYNC on top of GSYNC. I was kind of dreading this, since I remember how horrible VSYNC felt when I had a 60Hz monitor in terms of input lag, but the input lag really isn't noticeable at 144Hz, and I did check and I am absolutely at 144FPS in the games I play. Is this normal? I did some research and the way I see it: VSYNC at 60Hz will add a delay of 16.67ms for however many times the VSYNC is buffered, so double-
  13. I've experienced 144Hz and while it's definitely smoother, I have no problems with 60Hz. it's just that I have no issues on a shitty 1080p 60Hz TN panel from around 2013. So as long as the input lag and response times are comparable (hopefully better), it's all good for me. Specifically the VE247H is what I'm on right now.
