  1. They can be expensive, they are prob gonna be one of the cheapest things in the PC anyways lol I did see the Phantek cover, but it is only "normal" RGB. If nothing else I will get these witht eh BeQuiet's, but I'd love to have more options.
  2. Heyo! I'm looking into replacing my 4 Alphacool Eislüfter 120mm RGB Fans with something better. The Alphacools are okay, but I think they are made more for looks than performance. I'd love to get some Silent Wing 3's from BeQuiet, they also advertise high static pressure BUT... they have no RGB to speak of. and my case is the Thermaltake P5 and chock full of RGB components, so black fans with no lighting would suck. Is there either some high-end high quality stuff available from other brands with aRGB (not just RGB, but adressable), or some kind of cove
  3. Yeah, I regret paying full price for this as well. Should've waited for a sale. And even then, Crysis modded runs better and looks "good enough". The only reason you could want remastered is Ray tracing, and thats impossible to play with it enabled because it doesn't run smooth enough for a first person shooter.
  4. Heyo! I excitedly bought Crysis Remastered and I have to say; I am... Dissapointed. This is likely going to be a rant here. I don't get how they butchered the performance so bad. I know Crysis is supposed to be the almighty hardware-crushing game, but come on. From todays standarts, even on highest settings the Graphics look like a mediocere, mid-tier game at best. It is supposed to keep the original flavor, I know I know. But Seriously. If you compare it to Crysis 3 (Which people WILL do, it is a Crysis game after all) - It just
  5. Heyo! I can't find it in the manual so meybe someone here knows better; I need to know wether there are multiple chipsets responsible for the USB ports, and which port has which chipset connection, because I am getting issues with my VR setup, now that I've added 3 vive trackers (Am using the Index). Putting either the Headset or the trackers on seperate chipsets to clear up some bandwidth would solve my issues. I don't really want to buy a USB PCI card. Kinda don't believe a Mainboard like this would have enough USB bandwidth...
  6. Heyo! First off, this is by no means a hate thread. Not intended as one, I'm just curious. Well, I ordered two LTT Water bottles (one big and one small version) on the 10th of August (17 days, or 14 Work days) ago. One thing that already confuses me is that the delivery time on the store page itself was estimated at 7-14 days (not sure if workdays or "normal" days), but on the page about the shipping policy it states it can take up to 30 days. I've been checking my order every couple of days and its still stuck at "getting it ready", which I assume mean
  7. Ooh, I gotcha. Yeah that makes a ton of sence, thanks for clarifying!
  8. Interesting. Why would the peak boost speed be lowered though? Wouldn't it just go to its peak boost, regardless of base clock? Not trying to sound rude, of course. Just generally curious.
  9. Heyho! TL:DR is: I have nice hardware and don't know how to use it. And I hate myself for it. Let me explain: I've never been into overlocking and have pretty much no idea about how it works. The bad thing about this is my hardware. -Ryzen 9 3900x -GTX 1070 amp! (SLI 2x) -Crosshair VIII Formula -32Gb Trident z rgb @3200mhz As for cooling, I'm running a full-custom hardline waterloop with a 480mm 60mm thick rad. I plan to add another rad at some point, but for now it seems alright as is. I am ashamed of
  10. It is surprisingly good regarding dust! I believe since its in open air the dust cant really settle. I clean it maybe twice a year and there is only a very thin layer of dust (as is everywhere). My old case (Zalman 11+) definitely collected way mroe dust than the P5. It was pretty cool to do a build in it, but for my next case I'll probably get something like the Lian Li-011 with an unusual form factor and lots of glass.
  11. Heyho! After 4 years of in the work time I am finally at a point where I can consider my gaming setup finished and want to show off a bit! Main Specs: Cooling Gear: Peripherals: Desk: Additional comment: The Monitor arm allows me to some some pretty funky stuff, like rotating this monster vertical, for rediculous LTT Forum Browsing lol It has a pretty large range of motion, going from having the monitor resting ontop of my table all the way to the roof, swinging everywhere and
  12. Oooh, USB-c ing all that is a thing? With displayport and ethernet and stuff? Did not know that! And yeah, the sleeve is not going down like in the picture in the end. it goes to the right behind the case, as stated above. I'm not familiar with USB-C yet, because I dont have any device that uses it. The mobo is a Crosshair VIII Formula so the Port should be up to date. Any hubs recommended, or do I just get any that works?
  13. Heyho! Simple problem (probably) difficult solution; I need to hide these cables: They are running behind the Pc and into the wall so I only need to hide this little bit. (The sleeve point down now but the cables are all gonna go completely horizontal to the right in the end) Unfortunately I don't have a 3D printer, but I would be able to make something out of wood if necessary. I want it to be as small as possible though. Open to any suggestions! Different cables maybe? Edit PS: Yeah the wallpaper absolutely sucks. Its
  14. Heyho! Long story short: Nothing I do in Aura creator does anything. Not a single glimpse of light. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I had armory crate installed and after beeing extremely dissapointed with it I uninstalled it and installed the older aura software (which has many more, much beter effects). I know I cant select my aura creator profile in the old software, but Creator itself applies effects and also tries to show them live. But If i click apply it just turns everything off (presumably because it doesnt work correctly). It did that with the newes
  15. My friend has a completely different build and yes, it wakes up when everything is unplugged. Ethernet, Wifi, all usb devices...
  16. Maybe far fetched, but do you have another CPU with the same socket or another mainboard to test? If the power supply is fully functional it might be a shot CPU or Mainboard. Although If you say that most Lights on the mainbaord are still working, I would check if the CPU is working first. Maybe you have a friend with the same socket Mainboard you could test it in? (If you should do that, make sure to unplug his Operating System drive. Windows doesn't like CPU hot-swaps)
  17. Do you have any way to check if the Power supply is still fully functional? Just read your post. You could also try shorting out the pins on the mainboard itself that connect to the power button (Just pull the 2 Pin power button connector off and connect the 2 pins. Maybe your power button itself is broken or stuck.
  18. Heyho! I've been having a very annoying issue since the last ~3 Weeks. My PC turns itself on after its shut down. Fully shut down, no sleep mode or anything like that. The time interval is seemingly random. Sometimes it starts up after just seconds, sometimes it waits up to 5 minutes. Sometimes it doesn't do it (Rarely, tho). Mostly If I shut it down and it starts back up, I shut it down again and it starts back up. I think my record was 7 restarts before I lost my mind and shut it down on the power supply (After it was shut
  19. Heyho! Is there a place where I can get user made Profiles for the Armory Crate Aura RGB Profiles? Or is there a better program to do all that altogether? I do have the Aura Creator Software, but I cant figure out how it works with my stuff and am frankly too lazy to do so...
  20. Heyho! Simple problem, probably hard solution. My HDD doesn't go to sleep anymore. I have a 480Gb M.2 SSD, a 240Gb SSD and a 3TB HDD. On the HDD there are only Media Files, such as Music and Games. Most Games I frequently Play I have on either one of the SSD's. I did add the M.2 SSD just yesterday and Did a fresh Windows install. Before that the HDD shut down fine, even If I was playing a game on it, e.g. Space engineers, and when It needed a file the game froze while it startet up and all was well and good. But now it doesn
  21. Just an update; I went to a friend with an am4 socket and tried my 3900x - it works fine. ram as well, mobo is screwed. Gonna RMA it and... well... more waiting for me
  22. Yeah I'm using stock. We re-seated both CPU and cooler 3 times now. I'll try to reach Asus support now.
  23. yeah, i am testing it on the motherboard box. We are currently doing the bios update at the moment. I'll post an update after that.
  24. Heyho! I just recieved the last piece of my hardware and - before putting it all in a case and watercooling it - putting it together "dry" Unfortunately I get a very persistent "4D - Check CPU" error Specs: ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Formula RYZEN 9 3900x G-Skill Trident Z 3200mhz 1070amp! Any ideas? Tried reseating, only 1 Ram stick, safe boot, and so on already. Bios update? I'm kinda shaky here, with this expensive hardware not working... :(
