    Noisy PSU?

    I started to go deep into headfi (headphone audio) on my last psu, a seasonic focus gold 750w and that popped, so I replaced it with a corsair rm750x but since I've noticed a massive jump in noise floor. I mean now I can hear coil whine in my cans. I honestly don't know if my audio equipment has improved to the point that it's that revealing or it's the psu being "dirtier". I know that the corsair is higher quality for general PC use, but this noise is real. *edit: oh I don't hear any of it when balanced. *edit again: also at some point I started folding
  2. Then within the past month I added another ultrawide and turned the second monitor vertical and got new bookshelf speakers. I also did the 7" touchscreen system monitor. When I added the monitor I also added the keyboard tray *This is what I do with my life, I'm almost 40 no wife kids child support or alimony and no girlfriend. I work and sit here so the money I make goes towards this
  3. My setup has evolved rapidly over the past year or two since getting into a finished space. Here is the system with the new at the time 3900x and 2080super in the old nzxt case I still had the two enterprise servers running at the time because I didn't have anywhere to put the 8 3.5" hdd's to transfer everything But I got a case that could hold everything and decomissioned the dell poweredges. Added an entry level "audiophile" rack
  4. I'm bored and thought I'd dig up the photo's I could find of my battle station over the past 8 or so years and leave some commentary. The photo's are very incomplete but it's a stroll down memory lane. My first DIY PC was back in 03/04 and it was an AMD Athlon XP-M overclocked to 2.8ghz on water. My bench's beat everyone on every forum for that platform. After that I built a Pentium-D and thought I was shitting in tall cotton because I could do more than one intensive task at a time. By this time I was out of the loop pretty hard but decided to build a 3570k with a gtx 670? and
  5. Another update to the battle station. Added the lg nano-ips monitor and moved the original up and put the 16x9 portrait. Got new speakers Micca RB-42 (need to find good stands, they're sitting on my old JBL's). Added the audio center to the left with dac/amp, 2 tube amps, 1 speaker/headphone amp and one power amp and VU meter. Also added the keyboard tray and raised my desk a little higher and lowered my chair. I also did the system monitor with a 7" touch screen. This is far from final, This winter I'm finishing the basement and when I move down there I'll actually cable mana
  6. It turned out that it needed an update then the remote worked
  7. I don't know if this is the correct forum to put this in, but does anyone know how to hook a 5-pin usb header to a usb 2.0 port on a mb? Or rather I should say can you do that? Jayztwocents did a video on a custom screen for your case and he mentioned that a usb header to micro usb cable made it much easier, all I can find are 5-pin to micro usb. All it has to do is supply power. I've wanted to do something like this for a decade and a half but back then it was way way more difficult and I kind of gave up on the idea until now.
  8. That's actually a PC that I highly approve of, MB was a little extreme for the cpu and case is a subjective item but well done. If I win the giveaway I'm upgrading my gpu then putting my old one in there and giving the PC to one of my friends that is in serious need of an upgrade. Added comment for color, I've been a customer of newegg's since about 2004 if memory serves me right, they even took care of me when I messed up my computer countless times due to user error (aquarium pump on cpu block with push in fitting's). I was in a very very bad place at the time and di
  9. oh right, I forgot that beep codes were a thing, haven't had a speaker hooked up to a computer in quite a while cause there's typically not a problem. Thanks for the advice
  10. I have a G4560 in an H110I and can't get it to post/output. I've tried two kinds of ram each in either slot and I've tried two sticks. With one of my bad sticks it'll sit there and flash between cpu and ram for the diagnostic lights, with my dead 7700k it sit's at cpu diagnostic light so I know it's doing something. But I've tried it on one monitor with DVI and one with HDMI, both are ultrawide if that matters at all. But what makes me think not enough is going on is the keyboard and mouse don't light up (I have a ps2 keyboard somewhere). I do have another cpu to test with but it's buried
  11. Just wondering if anyone knows the best way to pay for the highest quality files or disc's of this show. I'm a die hard SG fan however when this show came out I was drunk every night and knew that I had to save it for when I could appreciate it properly. I know how to get files on my own, but I want to actually pay for it out of respect. Also what's this Stargate Origin's Catherine on amazon prime? How does it tie into the series?
  12. Well for future reference I just clicked the screens in the display setting's and over lapped them on each other and rearranged them a couple times and now it works.
  13. That cpu and two of those gpu's are a very poor match. The sum of something is not the same as it's parts, rather two far more powerful gpu's on an old cpu could easily be weaker than the 3 old gpu's on the same cpu. Thing's change over time and the cpu and gpu's being from the same era probably means more than brute force. This is just hubby jubby thought but there are thing's that can't be explained with high level logic on computers sometimes. I would imagine that optimization for the three gpu's that were meant to run in sli vs the optimization of two cards that weren't meant to run in
