  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.
  15. A few weeks ago I purchased a Dell Optiplex 7010 with a Core i5-3570, 8GB of RAM, and a 240GB SSD with the intent of flipping the system as a basic gaming PC after adding a low-power GPU. What I didn't know is that Optiplexes use an absolute ton of proprietary connectors for their motherboards and I'm basically at a standstill. I cannot plug in any of my front panel connectors at all as the pinouts are completely different. Is there any type of adapter I can purchase online to fix this? A quick Google search didn't return many promising results and I was hoping someone would have an answe
  16. The case I picked only allows for two 120mm fans up top, which I have already installed. Also the case can't support much larger of a cooler which is why I bought the NH-L9i and didn't use the stock Wraith Prism
  17. I built an ITX VR PC for my basement a few weeks ago with a 2700X and a GTX 1080. It's got a Noctua NH-L9i Chromax with an AM4 adapter bracket installed and uses Noctua NT-H1 thermal paste. When I was messing around with the boot settings I noticed that it idles at 51C, even in the BIOS. I haven't tested any VR games on it yet as I had to move back to my apartment for the starting semester so I don't know how well it fairs in game, but the GPU idles at a respectable 38C. My friend says that Ryzen tends to keep their core clocks very high even when idling. I did switch the memory profile so tha
  18. I'm looking for the best backup solution for my PC whether it just be a massive internal HDD or an external NAS solution. Right now my system uses a 500GB SATA SSD for the boot drive (40% full), a 1TB SATA SSD for my games drive (90% full), and a 4TB 7,200RPM HDD for mass storage including games, pictures, documents, and most importantly, my YouTube projects which consist of video files, project files, assets, music, etc. (56% full). I've started noticing my hard drive has been getting a bit noisy and I've only been using it for maybe 2 years (it's a Seagate BarraCuda Pro) but I'll
  19. It would appear not. I'll look into an HDMI 2.0 adapter or HDMI 2.0 cable. Thanks
  20. I own an HTC VIVE (original) which I hook into my gaming PC to play, which I then hook into a TV in my basement to show everyone what I'm seeing. However, my PC is only outputting 1080p to my 4K TCL TV and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it? Both my Display Settings and NVIDIA Control Panel say that the maximum resolution supported is 1080p. My PC uses a GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition so I don't have any worries about my card not being able to supply said resolution so I'm thinking it might just be my cable? I'm using an HDMI to DisplayPort adapter which converts DP from my GPU to HDMI whi
  21. EDIT: I have found a solution! https://support.nzxt.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022695713-My-CAM-Powered-Device-Is-Not-Recognized
  22. I just built a PC using some old parts my friends and I had lying around to sell for some extra money and right now I'm going about the process of installing all of the necessary software as I wait for the Windows 10 key to come through. I've got my old Kraken X61 installed and I forgot how awful it was to install drivers for this thing. I'm literally working off of a brand new version of CAM on a clean install of Windows 10 and every time CAM says the drivers are installed and prompts me to restart the PC, nothing happens after the restart. I have no clue how to fix it as I haven't had this c
  23. I'm almost certain that they'll be selling merch at the event as it looks like they've done before. I got the merch pack and it comes with a t-shirt, a pin, and a lanyard, all which I think you can purchase individually.
  24. Nevermind, I found the answer. Turns out I had the USB 2.0 header cable plugged into the wrong port as it was right next to an optional USB 2.0 port on my motherboard.
