  1. Thanks for your responses. I did try to contact Instagram for support but I was unsuccessful. They do not provide an option for help getting back into your account nor do they provide a phone number or email address to contact an actual person, they just have an automated email reset. I did change my password when I created a new account just in case it was hacked and my new password was very secure as well and the odds of someone guessing it are just about zero. The only other thing I can think of is perhaps I have some type of malware on my PC that is causing the pr
  2. Hello everyone, I am having a bit of an odd issue with Instagram deleting my account. About 2 weeks ago Instagram logged me out and asked me for my number to verify my account because they detected suspicious activity. Not sure what was going on, I verified it and got back in. They asked me for verification several other times and I got back in no problem until it gave me an error and refused to accept the code they sent me for verification. I tried to log in, but I got a "no users found" error. I tried to make a new account with the same email, but then I got an error saying my email address
  3. That makes sense, thank you for clarifying! I will not be increasing the IMC voltages but I may try a little higher voltage on my ram (up to its rated 1.35V) then to see if that helps stability at higher speeds since that is what it's rated for. I won't abuse my ram with crazy high voltages, but I'm not overly concerned about its longevity since it has a lifetime warranty.
  4. Hello everyone, I have a couple questions about ram overclocking and voltages that no one seems to have definitive answers to and I would appreciate any input on. 1. Can increasing ram voltage damage or degrade the CPU's IMC in any way. I have read that the IMC could not be damaged since the voltage is supplied to only the modules and isn't sent to the IMC, but I have also read that the ram's voltage is sent to the IMC also and therefore excessive voltage can cause damage. I have looked at my CPU socket's pinout, but I'm far from an electrical engineer so that didn't answer my que
  5. As long as you buy the same exact set and it should work fine. If the second set differs in any way (timings, speed, or voltage) there's a good chance it will still work, but it is best to not mix ram sticks when possible.
  6. Why wouldn't someone buy it? I buy older stuff all the time if the price is right, it can be a great value compared to buying new. Fun fact: I only bought one new GPU in my entire life (my EVGA GTX 970) and I only bought it because it was open box and marked way down. You could easily sell that system as a gaming computer or sell the parts individually if you prefer. Being a few generations old doesn't automatically make something useless or worthless, especially if it was reasonably high end when it was released.
  7. That is a great point, thank you for the suggestion! Would the drive work okay sideways or should I mount it right side up?
  8. Hello everyone, I just built a wall mounted computer out of used parts I had laying around and I am wondering what you think of it. I built this computer as an early Christmas gift for my disabled grandma because she needed a decent computer and doesn't have money to build something modern and expensive, so I built her one out of parts I had laying around since I am a bit of a hoarder. She doesn't need an ultra powerful gaming system, just something that will browse the web, play videos, and run basic online games reasonably well. So here's what I came up with: CPU: Intel Cor
  9. Thank you. I guess there's no point in worrying about it since it doesn't seem like there's anything I can do about it anyways, I think that's something the FAH team will need to resolve.
  10. Right now the 290 and one of the 970's is running at full power, one 970 is not. Both 970's are at around 12-14% bus interface load, not sure about the 290 because it doesn't feel like reporting it. And yes I am folding on my CPU also
  11. It may be around 50% on either or both cards at any time. Right after I posted this the program started using both 970's fully and I was getting around 1.5-1.7 million PPD, but it's only using the 970's about 50% at the moment and I'm only getting around 1 millon PPD. I believe it is using the 290 fully though because it's scoring about 440K PPD and the 970's are around 275-300K PPD. So weird
  12. Hello everyone, I am having a bit of a problem with FAH only using around 50% of my GPU's. I am folding on my Core i7-6850K, two GTX 970's and an AMD 290 and I am sometimes not getting as many points as I should because even with folding power on full, the program is sometimes only utilizing up to around 50% of my 970's, not sure about my 290 because Afterburner doesn't feel like reporting its usage. I am wondering if my CPU may be holding me back because if I turn off CPU folding while it is doing this, my GPU utilization will go up to around 65-70% and my PPD actually increases because the G
  13. I didn't see anything bad in the logs and the system didn't have to wait a ridiculously long time for new WUs. Right now I'm folding on my CPU and 2 970s but my 960 is waiting for a WU and I'm getting around 170K PPD
  14. Thanks. I am still showing low points, but I climbed the overall rank by about 400 positions overnight from around 15,700 to 15,300 out of 2.65M so I think it's probably fine. Maybe its not reporting points correctly for some reason?
  15. Hello everyone, I just noticed a sudden drop in my FAH PPD. I am folding on an i7-6850K, 2 GTX 970s, and a 960 and I normally get around 1M PPD with everything folding but as of this morning I am only getting around 200K-250K PPD folding on everything. All my folding slots show running and my CPU as well as my 3 GPUs are at close to 100% usage, so I know that they are all being utilized by the program I have tried closing the program and reopening it as well as restarting my system but I still have the same problem. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this to happen or any suggestions o
  16. That's interesting, thanks for sharing. My 6850K needs 1.05V to run at 3.8 GHz, but I think that's pretty decent considering Broadwell-E is known for not overclocking nearly as well as Haswell-E chips did. I was surprised that I was able to get the input voltage down so low, I dropped it by 0.38V below the stock 1.8V and it is perfectly stable.
  17. I did a quick test and I found that with an input voltage of 1.9V, my i7-6850K runs at around 48 degrees under load at 3.8 GHz with a core voltage of 1.05V and the system draws 222W from the wall (0.93A X 239V = 222W). With an input voltage of 1.42V the temp is the same but power consumption is down by 12 watts (0.88A X 239V = 210W). So from my testing the input voltage does affect power draw and therefore heat output, but not nearly as much as the core voltage does.
  18. That could work, but the graphics card still draws power from the PSU and I don't know if such an old low wattage PSU could handle it. Those prebuilt systems don't come with overly large PSUs.
  19. At this point you either need to get another PSU to try or try that PSU in another system, which I wouldn't recommend because if its faulty it could damage your test system. Depending on where you buy it you could return it if it isn't the problem.
  20. Presuming the system still doesn't start with everything non essential unplugged, I would guess the problem is the PSU over the motherboard or CPU. Is the voltage switch on the back in the correct position? Does it have a brand on it? Does it smell burned?
  21. At this point you either have a bad CPU (very rare), a motherboard problem, a PSU problem, or something plugged into the motherboard is shorted. Anything plugged into the motherboard such as USB port or audio headers, drives, peripherals, sound cards, etc could potentially cause the system to fail to boot if they are shorted, so unplug everything not essential to the system turning on. You only want your CPU, RAM, 24 pin power, 8 pin CPU power, and monitor plugged into the motherboard for testing. Other than that, you will need to get a PSU to verify whether it is bad or not. What
  22. Did you try resetting your BIOS by taking the battery out for a minute and putting it back in? Also, do you have another PSU you could try?
  23. There are a few things to consider here: 1. We're talking about a 9 year old low end motherboard here and it is likely nearing the end of its life. If you upgrade the CPU and the motherboard goes out that was pretty much money wasted, although you could resell the CPU. 2. Your old 300W PSU couldn't handle a powerful GPU, so about the best you could (maybe) do is a low end card like a GT 1030 as someone else said. And even then an old low wattage PSU like what is in that system may not tolerate that. 3. If you want to upgrade your system, a good bet would be
  24. Thank you. The only errors I am seeing in the log are when no workunits are available, so I should be good then.
  25. Do you have another RAM module you can try? The integrated graphics uses the system's RAM, so a problem with the RAM could easily cause this problem.
