  1. The story: I was going to send back a Z490 board(a good one), but when trying to get the CPU-cover back on, it scratched the pins. It bent like four, but I think I managed to save three of them. The big fuckup; on the last pin it was "laying" down on the socket, and when I tried to pull it up and correct it into the right position, the pin just snapped off. I tried to RMA it, but they just said "no". It's currently being sent back to me. What are the chances that the board works just fine without it? I might be "lucky" and it disables one ram slot or one PCI-E slot. I'm only planning to use 32
  2. So after running, it passed the tests. However, when I quit the memtest BIOS, and went into my mb BIOS, it froze immediately and it did not recover. Might it be the cpu then? I'm going to run aida 64 stress test on the cpu, to check, and then i'm going to stress test the gpu. When running AIDA64 I got some small freezing, but don't know if the freezing were just because the CPU was at 100%, or it was the same "normal" freezing. EDIT: The window freezing when 'shaking' it only happens with AIDA64.
  3. I have not, will do now. (btw love your profile picture) Do you also think it might be a ram issue?
  4. Temps are really good from both gpu and cpu. I can try to boot with only 1 RAM stick, and then test the other and vice versa, but the problem is that the freezing happens randomly, so I can't test it right away if the issue got fixed or not. But I will try. Do you maybe thing that it might be a RAM issue?
  5. i7 - 8700k Asus Strix 2080 OC Asus Prime Z370-A Samsung 970 EVO Plus (windows installed here) Samsung 860 SSD Corsair Dominator RGB DDR4 3200MHz 32GB I'm struggling with random freezes, and I can't locate if the issue is hardware- or software-related. I've re-installed windows 10, re-flashed the BIOS, re-installed GPU driver (with DDU first). The freezes are random, everything from watching a youtube video to gaming. However, when trying to re-flash the BIOS it kept freezing over and over again, and it did not recover. When the pc usually freezes it
  6. I'm getting random stuttering, and I can't seem to find the solution. i7 - 8700k @4.8 Asus Strix 2080 OC Asus Prime Z370-A Samsung 970 EVO Plus (windows installed here) Samsung 860 SSD Corsair Dominator RGB DDR4 3200MHz 32GB I have overclocked the CPU and GPU, however, when running realbench it has some issues with Luxmark, so I turned off the OC on the GPU to test it, but that didn't help. The stuttering happens randomly, all from watching a youtube video to gaming. This issue just happened recently, however, I have not installed nor updated anything from when the
  7. Would you then say that the 6xx are better for movies then?
  8. I live in Norway, however, had also been thinking to buy those, however, it would be almost 80£ in total. If I'm thinking about using 80£ on just earpads, I might as well just invest a bit more and myself a new headset.
  9. I currently have the DT 990 pro which I'm very happy with (sound-wise), however, the issue I'm having is the earpads. When I first got them, my ears slightly touched the inside, but I thought it would go away when I wore them in, but they didn't, it has only gotten worse. I looked at some bigger earpads, but they would be upwards to 100 dollars, hence the shipping. Been looking at some other headphones, like the HD6xx and HD58x, and I can't decide on what to pick from. I mainly do gaming but watch a lot of movies, series and youtube etc. I also been looking at other headphones such as the
  10. Oh wow, yeah, I have some ram that I don't "use" atm.
  11. Wow, thanks for the input! I'll think I will try the free trial and see if it`s better or not in terms of performance. Thanks again
  12. I have an intel optane 32 GB ssd, with their intel rst software, but I was wondering if I should maybe switch to primocache or something else? I am referring to this video from 2018, but a lot of things can happen between that time and now, so was wondering what cache-solution is the best in 2020? So, what would be the best solution for me to use with an HDD(only for games, but not my main games, those are on a ssd..)
  13. Looking for a hub where it has 5+ USB 3.0 ports, would be nice with 1 or 2 USB C, but not a game-breaker. If it needs its own power brick, it needs to have a decent length, since it will be going on a standing desk. Would be great if it could be around the 100$ mark. Edit: Will be used with a desktop
  14. I'm reinstalling windows atm, just in case there's actually was something wrong with windows. If that doesn't work I'll clear the CMOS. If that shouldn't work, I'll contact asus?
  15. 1-2 weeks ago, It would take about 13.2 seconds to boot into windows. But now it can take anything from 20- 35 seconds. I havn't installed any thing new.
  16. I have a Samsung 970 EVO Plus, so the speed of the system shouldn't be an issue. However, the BIOS is so slow to load when I turn on the pc. The specs isn't the issue, however, I'll post them anyway. I'm wondering if there's anything I can change to make it boot faster? Specs: i7 - 8700k @4.8 Asus 2080 Asus Prime Z370-A Samsung 970 EVO Plus samsung 860 ssd Corsair Dominator RGB DDR4 3200MHz 32GB 3 tb hdd with an Intel Optane 32gb
  17. I have overclocked my i7-8700k, and that's a very hot chip. I have delid it though. For me, I would say that my range is in the 80's, however, my cpu doesn't reach those numbers. If you run your cpu on a high temp for a LONG time, it may "die" faster in the futere(but it some cases it doesn't affect the longevity of the cpu). Linus made a video talking about the "safe" temp for different pc parts:
  18. I'm tinkering with my internet and read recently that they're some arguing about to disabling or enabling IPV6 can actually be a good/bad thing to do. So, what are the benefits and disadvantages to enabling it? With that said, should I keep IPV6 disabled in my router or leave it on? I'm trying squeeze every bit of speed I can get out of my internet connection. So I thought I should ask since it was turned off by defualt in my settings.
  19. I recently bought a TL-SG108E. My previous router had the wan port as VLAN 102, I did that to bypass my ips router. So how do I do that on the switch. I got a bit confused when I saw the untagged/tagged ports, and networking isn't my strong side of the tech world. In the picture is what I did, I don't know if it's correct.
  20. I did what you asked, and cleaned up the wireless interference and it's good. No-one on the network has gotten disconnected(yet). I am noticing some dead spots, and some weak speeds. So I'll look into setting up an ai mesh of some sort (in the future). I'll be monitoring the network and see if anything "bad" happens. But thanks for helping me out!
  21. Yes, once I've fixed the 2.4- 5GHZ, the hidden SSID will go away. The "old" setup was modem -> router. The new setup is just the asus router with a vlan 102. (but the old setup is temporary online, it will go away when the issues are fixed) 1. I'll definitely try that out, and hopefully it helps 2. I'll look more into those setting, and try to adjust some of those settings
