  1. Update: It works. I think my system is just temperamental. It does this every time I change coolers.
  2. reseated GPU, RAM, 24 pin ATX, 8 pin CPU. Still nothing. My system seems to have a mind of its own. This is not the first time it's done this either. I just hope that it works in the morning.
  3. I reseated the CPU just to be sure and no dice still. It was working fine (albeit a bit warm) less than 3 hours ago. Any other ideas? I didn't see any bent pins when I reseated it.
  4. That's a good idea! I have ripped it out of the socket before so the socket could be damaged. I'll do that and report back.
  5. Hey guys, I literally just installed a Noctua NH-U14S in my PC, and now my PC doesn't boot. I have tried power cycling and shorting the pins. I did do some research about my 1000w power supply and sometimes others encounter a similar issue. My pc did this when I put a H60 in it coming from a 212 evo. Here are my specs. CPU: Ryzen 7 1700X GPU: GTX 1080 Ram: 16gb Corsair Vengance Storage :2 NVMe Intel 660p and 2 1TB HDD PSU: .EVGA Supernove 1000w Mobo: MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon I'm sure in about 30 minutes it will boot, but I really just want to kn
  6. I have a friend that seems to have stumbled upon an entire box of Thermaltake TG-7. I know it has to be at least 2-3 years old. My question is, is it still good? I had a tube of the same stuff and it went bed after about a year after opening it. The packaging says that it's good for 24 months after MOB, but I'm not sure if that's just the company covering their rear ends.
  7. Budget (including currency): $2000 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Streaming with OBS, WoW and other AAA titles, light programming and database work. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I currently have SSDs, NVMes, PSU and peripherals.I'd like to play with over 120 fps at 1440p. Below are my current parts list: Define 7 Case 3 1TB Samsung 860 EVO 2 1 TB Intel 660p NVMe
  8. Hello everyone, I'm wondering how Linus can get over 600 fps in CS:GO. Does he just turn the frame limiter off? I'm planning a new build with similar parts to what he showcased in the 5950X and 3080 benchmark video. I do know there's a scene of people who do crazy registry edits and use third part programs to get "optimize" their game. I'm probably going to get a 3080 and a 5800X, and if I could get crazy FPS like this without having to perform the tweaks I have to do on my 1080 and 1700X, I'd be really happy. Thanks, Chromalife
  9. Thanks for your reply. Yeah I figured that'd be the smartest thing to do. I suppose I should also get a new graphics card at that time as well. Will Ryzen 4000 be DDR4 as well?
  10. Budget (including currency): 1000 USD Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: World of Warcraft, Warframe, general gaming. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I currently have a 1700X, GTX 1080, 32 gb of ram, several internal HDDs and SSDs, 1000W power supply (it was a gift). I'm really trying to see what a decent upgrade path for my budget is. I would like to play WoW and Warframe at 144Hz at 1440p.
  11. Hello all, I have a quick question about Nvidia surround and the 760. I'm trying to get 2 1920 x 1080 panels and a 1600x900 panel to work in nvidia surround, but the topologies menu in Nvidia Control panel won't let me select all three monitors. Is there an issue with the resolutions, because I have seen people run multiple monitors with mismatched resolutions. I'm thinking about SLI'ing them if that may solve the issue. 760s are pretty cheap now a days. And yes, I did read through the SLI sticky, but my question was not explicitly answered. Thanks, Chromalife
