  1. How can I tell if I have a bad PSU? My pc is doing weird things, I suspect there is a problem with either the mobo or psu is there anyway to check this? My current symptoms are: Any overclock at all for cpu or gpu is extremely unstable even with adequate cooling my XMP for ram doesnt work at all so im stuck at 2133 my GPU is very stuttery at close to 100% usage even with temps around 70C and all low settings at 1080p Playing demanding games causes my PC to freeze and monitor to not detect input and i have to restart the pc to fix I a
  2. the other thing is oddly enough, i never got XMP to work with my RAM. It would always cause instability. IDK if relevant or not
  3. yeah, no what kind of tests can i do to determine if it is psu or gpu etc?
  4. the one that helped my when i first built it? No, it was a friend of my dad's. long story short though, that isnt an option anymore lol
  5. No, im the only friend with a tower not a laptop I also dont know if it is GPU, MOBO, or PSU or how to tell
  6. I dont have any other GPU's or any other PC's that arent a laptop
  7. for the past year-ish, if I play games on anything more than very low settings at 1080p my games start stuttering badly or my computer hangs and needs a restart to fix. with task manager open, I can see that temps are fine, GPU only hits ~70C even with 100% usage. When the screen freezes, my monitor says "no display input detected", and if I do things that would make a noise, like moving volume wheel, no feedback. The only way to get out of the freeze is to hit the restart button on my case. I have all that latest windows updates, drivers, and graphics updates, and this
  8. Problem: My android phone (Moto Z force Droid) has a crappy wifi module and will only work with strong wifi signals In the lunch room at work the wifi connection is poor and so i get flakey at best connection. IT at work has no interest in fixing the issue because for everyone else it is fine. Solution I need: I am looking for an external wifi antenna for my android. I can only find USB ones for the PC. From my research, they wont work with android due to driver issues. Solution 2: Could I use a wifi repeater or signal booster? I dont have access to network
  9. Youre going to be looking for something 80+ bronze or better (silver, gold, platinum) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_Plus semi, or full modular is nice for building, but non essential. And look for a name brand (corsair, evga, cooler master, bequiet, thermaltake, seasonic, silverstone) And do 500W and up is fine. 750W and higher is overkill for your setup theres a ton of choices out there, so its hard to recommend just one.
  10. obviously you wont be able to use one with a heat-sink mounted to it though. wont fit
  11. 500W is fine for an i5 and a 580. That being said, I would agree with the other posts that that particular PSU is a little sketchy, and I would suggest something at least 80+ bronze You can definitely try it if you already own the PSU. If you come into power limit issues, your rig will just lock up or crash when gaming. It wont likely damage anything, as the components have built in protections. (I wouldnt recommend it though)
  12. laptops by default have non intensive applications use your integrated GPU to save power (and heat), then automatically switch to a dedicated one in intensive workloads. Youre going to want to keep it this way if you intend to keep your battery life
  13. im not familiar with 'crimp heat sinks' do you mean heat-shrink? like to insulate a solder joint?
  14. SSD will be a night and day difference. next biggest is GPU. then if you do CPU itll be new rig time
  15. thats a bigger difference than an i5 vs i7.... https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-9700K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-9600K/4030vs4031 thats also usually ~the difference between medium and high graphics settings, etc
