  1. I am building a PC for a friend of mine who doesn't know much about them, but loves to game of course. The budget is 2K with a need for a whole new system, keyboard, and monitor to fit into that budget. I am really excited to build something with the new 3070 GPU but I'm not sure which mobo and CPU to pair with the new gen of GPU to squeeze all that juicy performance out of it. A friend of mine mentioned that the AMD CPU's have a technology that the Intel ones don't yet, and they have a much better price to performance ratio. I have heard that the newer mobo's have PCI
  2. I was given a Razer Tournament edition headset for helping my friend out building his rig. The aux chord is integrated so I can't just replace it and be done unfortunately. He ripped the aux out from the bottom end of the volume control board, but the board isn't damaged. I'm not sure which wire to use and solder on to fix this. I have an extra 4 conductor wire that I can use. I am also unsure of where to solder the wire on the board since I cant find a diagram when I look up the board part number. Thanks for reading!
  3. I recently took apart my computer to do a thorough cleaning and improvement on my cable management. After I put my computer back together I got in any game and soon after starting it would crash, this escalated to getting the BSoD quite frequently even when I was only trying to log into windows. The error codes on the BSoD were always changing each time and this became a cycle of restarting until I turned off the computer. I tried taking my hardware out to localize the problem but nothing worked, not even reseating my cpu, gpu, ram, or taking out all my power connections and cleaning and putti
  4. thank you everyone that has helped! I will be trying this tonight.
  5. test the memory? like put it in one of my buddies rigs and test it that way?
  6. ok, so how should I go about fixing an unstable OC?
  7. yes It's only when I'm overclocking, so what should I look for to see if it is an unstable OC? would taking the computer apart and putting it back together really cause that?
  8. I have reseated the memory several times, could the memory be damaged and only react when I am overclocking?

  10. I just took my PC apart to clean and improve cable management, now that I have it back together it's crashing after being in game for a min or two. This problem doesn't occur when I am watching anything on YouTube or am using any benchmark software, only once I start up a game. I tried taking my cpu cooler, ram, and gpu off and put it back on but the problem persists. The problem isn't bound to one game or launching software either. My cpu has been a bit wacky as well, some times the cpu usage will skyrocket and the fans will rev up and then it'll come back down. why did this happen?
  11. I generally play Overwatch on my pc but when I built my pc I was misinformed when I thought that my i5 6600k would make the cut. I am peaking at 90% usage on my cpu and am only getting around 90 to 110 frames. I've got a 1070 GPU that is not passing the 35% usage mark and 16 gigs of ram that is never more than at a 50% load.. What cpu should I upgrade to so I can get my full 144hz that my monitor is capable of? Or is there a way to get more out of my cpu besides overclocking, because the overclocking doesn't ever give it more than maybe 10 extra frames. I am wanting to be able to run max setti
