  1. Here's a peculiar problem. Everything worked fine until I did a fresh install of Windows 10. Now, games specifically, and some selected software applications take 1-3 minutes to launch. I originally installed nvidia studio drivers, but reverted back to game ready drivers which seemed to fix the problem, but now it's back for no reason. I tried to close all applications from the task manager, but it seemed to have made no difference. Apart from games and some software launching forever, once they load, it's fine. The M.2 is not overheating, nor is any other component. It seems like a software i
  2. Like it says in the title. When I set my hz to 144, all text becomes blurry and somewhat distorted. Setting hz to 120 fixes it completely. Cleartype has no real effect with 144hz. Is this supposed to happen? I'm running with GTX970, but will upgrade to 1080ti soon. The text has "rainbowy", blurry edges when set to 144hz.
  3. Win10 64bit Samsung SSD EVO860 1Tb Asus Maximus X Hero, latest bios. Suddenly, these problems have risen on this specific drive (my secondary): - Steam games will partly break, and Steam needs to install them again. Which it does in a few minutes. - Windows Store Games will break, and I need to reinstall them fully. They lie in this drive, and Store says the drive became unplugged and tells me not to use an external drive (I'm not). After reinstalling the game, it works for a moment again. - I can't save files through Photoshop normally anymore. Saving on top of the old
  4. so I overclocked my setup with this guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoUtA7DKXhU, but knowing pretty much nothing about these things, all is working fine and all, but my cpu is now running almost at max core clock even in idle. which of the uefi settings controls that? Can I have the CPU clock down on idle somehow?
  5. New build and a fresh install of WIN10: - I can't make any changes inside Program Files. I can install programs though. - I can't open Office unless I run them as admin. - I can't add or edit registry keys. Trying to take ownership in regedit results in 'access is denied'. - I can't open screen saver settings, no permissions. I'm logged in as admin for all of these. What's up? I tried sfc scannow, and DISM. They didn't find problems. I did lose power at the very first wupdate, while it told me not to cut power.
  6. Looks like if I take the LED strip OUTSIDE of the case, the noise stops. It's magnetic. Is this the problem?
  7. I'm using Aura to control both. Should probably try Corsair Link?
  8. Here's my symptoms: - if RGB is enabled on RAM and my LED strip, there is a very high pitched noise coming from the RAM area (tested with a toilet paper roll and listened). - If set to breathing effects, the noise comes on with the lights, and goes off without them. - If I disable lights on the RAM, but keep the LED light on, the noise goes away. If I disable the lights on the LED but keep the lights on the RAM, the noise is quieter. - When the RGB elements have been off for awhile, the noise can pick up and start, then go away, then start, but activating the LED's m
  9. I noticed the R4 only has one vertical bracket but the R6 has two. So I probably can't change them all as those seem to be shorter.
  10. Can someone who owns both of these cases, check if the pci brackets from the r4 are the exact same as the R6 and if they can be swapped between them. Thanks!
  11. I have a chance to get a free motherboard (up to 150€) but only if I order it during January. If I'm going for an Intel build for my new render/gaming PC, will the motherboard become obsolete by new tech in 4-6 months from now? Are there any major game changers coming that would make it wiser to wait till spring and just get all the parts at the same time?
  12. It also takes Task Manager to open for like 2 minutes..
  13. Isn't running out of RAM. I can't seem to find the Vcore value in HWinfo. Checked again, the Sensors listing doesn't have it.
  14. Is my CPU voltage normal? During idle VID is around 0.7 V and gaming 1.05V?
  15. memtest actually ran 2 days ago without hiccups, and crystaldiskinfo has been installed for a few years, shows nothing new.
  16. Cores are running at around 50c when CPU is at 70-100%. Idle 38c. Gaming 55c.
  17. So....format C:\? sfc scannow finds nothing.
  18. It's literally Task Manager itself eating up CPU. Or anything else CPU intensive like Vegas, although it just uses 100% of CPU just sitting open.
  19. Lately I've been having trouble editing in Vegas. Whenever I click around the timeline, it takes ages for the timeline to react and move my cursor. Resizing clips and all that takes forever. I noticed that my CPU is pretty much at 100% when just sitting still on Vegas, not doing anything. Same problem happens when I open the Task Manager. the Task Manager process itself goes up to 70% CPU and it goes into the state of Not Responding. PC is sluggish on other places too, but games seem to run okay. Never had this problem before. Any clue? Can't find any malware.
  20. Hey, I've been using the R.A.T 3 and been extremely happy with it, but it's time for a new one. I'm looking for a matte finish mouse (mostly matte or completely matte), this is a requirement. Also, very small hands so that should be taken into consideration too. Any tips on what to look for? NO wireless.
  21. @KOMTechAndGaming Huawei Ascend G7
  22. Residing in Finland, so I'd prefer buying from any European country, since from outside EU I'd have to pay toll and additional tax charges. I'm looking for a smart watch that can: - Track my sleep - Show continuous heart rate (bonus: an app that I could potentially record the clock screen or show its data on my phone's screen would be nice so I could add my heart rate to my live streams. I've done this with my Fitbit) - Several watch faces or the ability to add them via internet - Have a battery life of more than 2 days My absolute top price to pay i
  23. Let's get right to it. Here's my specs: Asrock H87 Pro4 Intel Xeon 1230v3 GTX 970 32 GB RAM Would it benefit me the most if I went and got a new CPU? Do the new CPU's require a newer mobo than what I've got? My editing is very heavy, I edit an hour long videos with 4 videos in one, requiring a lot from the CPU. My Xeon can't fully handle it, and in Vegas I need to edit in Draft Half. Would a new CPU help the render times (rendering 1 hour with 4 videos in it takes 8 hours) and the preview editing? I've got 300 € to spend.
