  1. Yeah when I first got the card I ran three separate instances of Unigine Superposition just to see what sort of scores I could crank out of this thing (my buddies and I have a bit of a benchmark competition going on) and it completed all three tests just fine. I just ran another Unigine Superposition test with the 4K Optimized preset and it passed with flying colors. No weird glitches to be had at all. Sure the coil whine was a bit noticeable but the temps weren't unusual; 77C Max but I'm planning on switching to a more airflow-optimized case anyway.
  2. I'm definitely leaning more towards monitor issue. Before running my RTX 3090 my daily driver was a GTX 1080 Ti and had no issues with that whatsoever. Even borrowed my buddy's RTX 3070 for a while as we're waiting for Black Friday to get him the rest of his parts and that ran without issue, too. Same monitor, same DisplayPort cable. Even wiped the old drivers before swapping in the RTX 3090 and updated them to the most recent version on Saturday. Not only that but I've been benchmarking and testing a system I just built for a friend with an RTX 2080 in it with the same monitor and had no issu
  3. SOLUTION: Idk if I just didn't have the DisplayPort cable pushed in far enough for what. Swapped DisplayPort outputs on the back of the GPU and that seemed to have fixed it. So I finally got around try playing some games with my new RTX 3090 FE and get greeted by this instead. Is this card like, too powerful for my monitor to handle? Originally I was thinking it might just be a power supply issue as I only have a 750W 80+ Gold unit from EVGA, but I have a UPS that supports up to 1000W of power and the built-in screen says my system and monitor combined draw like 580W of power.
  4. The friend who owns the RTX 3070 doesn't have a system yet, as mentioned previously. I'm just testing it to ensure it works properly because we're waiting for Black Friday deals for him to buy the rest of the parts.
  5. No, the system does not get to the BIOS splash screen with the RTX 3090 FE installed. Every troubleshooting step I've done with my GTX 1080 Ti as well as my buddy's RTX 3070 FE works just fine. I'm currently sitting at my desktop with the RTX 3070 FE installed.
  6. SOLUTION: Not a guaranteed fix for everyone, but swapping the GPU for either the 1080 Ti or the 3070 allowed me to have display to perform a BIOS update, rebooted into windows and shut down the system. Swapped to the RTX 3090 and badda bing badda boom I was past the BIOS splash screen and in Windows. Original Post: I just got my hands on an RTX 3090 Founders Edition and am stoked. But unfortunately, my system won't post and I can't seem to figure out why. The lights turn on and all my fans spin, but the motherboard Q-Code LED gets stuck on "bF" for maybe 10 seconds befo
  7. I currently use Sony Vegas Pro 16 for video editing as I enjoy making YouTube videos for fun. But despite my relatively powerful hardware, my general editing process in Vegas has been really sub-par from what I'd normally expect. My footage usually plays back at the proper 30fps I record in, but as soon as there's a cut in the footage or an image overlay, there's a very noticeable freeze to the playback, sometimes requiring multiple seconds to catch back up. Task Manager doesn't show my hardware being pinned at 100% or anything so I'm confused as to why this is happening. Originall
  8. Yeah I use VLC Media Player and it shows the clips perfectly fine. Maybe I'm not allocating enough RAM or GPU horsepower to Sony Vegas? (kinda using a cracked version because I make $0 from YouTube and don't have the money to drop $20 a month on Premiere) It's also very finnicky when trying to enable CUDA acceleration to rendering as it just refuses to render for more than 1 second before spitting out an error. CPU-based rendering works just fine.
  9. I'm using two different clips; -one being a 30fps screen capture on my 1440p Ultrawide monitor [Total Video Bitrate = 2635kbps| Audio Bitrate = 134kbps] -one is a 29.970fps recording from my LUMIX G7 camera [Total Video Bitrate = 94485kbps | Audio Bitrate = 125kbps] I now see the serious problem with my camera bitrate being incredibly higher haha. How do I go about fixing this? I'm still learning the ins and outs to my camera.
  10. Recently I've started doing more video editing than gaming to try and work on my YouTube channel (GTech if you're interested) and I've been having a LOT of issues with just playing back footage. I've been shooting at 4k 30fps and doing anything more than just playing back a single video causes playback framerate to drop dramatically. I'm using quarter resolution in the preview window with two 4K clips side by side (cropped to fit in a 16:9 4k window) and am getting <1fps playback. I would RAM preview my timeline bit by bit but that nearly doubles my editing time and only gets me a few secon
  11. I first upgraded my CPU from an i5-4690K (4c4t) to an i7-6850K (6c12t) in 2017 when I realized I could get much better performance video editing and found a sick deal on said i7. Plus it got me onto the enthusiast X99 chipset which gave me quad-channel RAM capability and lots of PCIe lanes (and a ton of USB ports haha) It's been 3 years since then and I've been considering upgrading again because I've started video editing a lot more now, in 4k nonetheless. I mostly do video editing nowadays as I haven't had a lot of time to play games, but I'd still like to be able to get good frame rates reg
  12. Yeah, that might be a tad hard to do because the case I'm working with is the Q300L which has it's I/O mounted on the side.
  13. That's not what I need. The motherboard has a standard 24-pin connector which I just plugged right into from the PSU. It's the power switch, front panel audio, power LED and HDD LED connectors that are proprietary on the motherboard.
  14. I'm honestly considering just searching for a really cheap LGA 1155 motherboard and pulling the CPU and cooler out, as that'd be way easier to do.
