  1. Been watching them while watching the vid, jumping around 35-41 C
  2. Hi friends, need some help figuring out what's going on. Build: -CPU: 2700X (from 1300X) -GPU: ASUS 1070 STRIX -Mobo: ASRocks B350M Pro4 (P4.7) -RAM: 16GB HyperX Fury 2400MHz RAM So today I went through and updated my mobo's BIOS up from 3.0 to 3.4 to 4.7, giving it a few boots in between. After swapping to the 2700X, I booted and it went up just fine. I was getting ready to stress test it but was attempting to watch the new LTT video while I had some foods and noticed a couple of weird things... 1) video kept stuttering and eventu
  3. Thanks, I'll keep this in mind. I'll probably mess around with some accelerator settings as I've seen that some games can take advantage of another GPU for PhysX rendering
  4. I have run into random stutters when streaming and watching videos. And I have an extra card laying around, so why not try to do something with it?
  5. Ah okay, this is mainly what I was curious about. So (ignoring accelerator bit here) if I just wanted to extend my display, that would relieve my 1070 completely and I wouldn't have to mess with any settings, right? (Like if I was running YouTube/streams on my 1050Ti display)
  6. Anything that's not on my game monitor. YouTube, Twitch, Discord, spreadsheets.
  7. You can find 16GB DDR4 3000MHz for $100-120 on Amazon frequently right now Imagine my pain when I paid ~$180 for 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 from HyperX, only to have the price drop another $25 the next day
  8. Hi friends, I've done some googling and found that it's definitely possible to use 2 different GPUs in one system. In my case, I've got a 1070 STRIX and a 1050Ti STRIX that I'd like to have running. I'm wanting to use my 1050 as a secondary monitor/hardware accelerator while using my 1070 to power my games/primary monitor. Is there anything I should be aware of going into this? I've never tried doing this before and don't really know how to dedicate certain tasks to certain GPUs, any help is appreciated.
  9. A bit late on reply, but yeah my 710+ has Blues. Not sure how, but it does
  10. Additional info: I was helping Alpha with this last night on Discord. His GPU fans were spinning up and his RAM and AIO were lighting up as well. Figured that if it was a GPU issue, plugging into the mobo for output would figure out that issue as his 8700K has that iGPU. But neither are working. He also plugged in the same monitor cable into his MBP and it worked fine, so it's not a cable issue. We tried reslotting the GPU which didn't make any difference either unfortunately. If it were a motherboard issue, it seems like his keyboard/mouse wouldn't be responding either, unless som
  11. unplug and replug, always a good thing to try
  12. I don't think you understand what I'm saying Open your computer and see if the USB header cables are properly connected to the motherboard https://www.quora.com/What-are-USB-headers
  13. I mean the USB headers might not be connected properly to the motherboard itself, not the USB port
  14. SSD: boot, stuff you use a lot, stuff that requires fast read/write speeds (rendering programs). I keep my Chrome, Steam, OBS, and editing software on my SSD for my use case. You should probably put your heavy applications on here. HDD: low read/write stuff, storing files from your programs, games should be ok in here (though I recommend upgrading that 5400rpm HDD to a 7200 as fast as possible, 5400 crawls)
  15. Given that both devices you listed are USB, maybe one of your USB headers isn't plugged in properly?
