  1. May I know how you got the p104s to work for gaming? I've tried to mod the drivers a few times but it fails to install every time.
  2. I recently upgraded the screen on my Elitebook 1040 G2 from 1600x900 @60hz to 1920x1080 @60hz. The display is supported according to HP's site. When I turn on the laptop, the BIOS splash screen and Windows logo are displayed, but when it boots into Windows there is no display. Also I can get into the BIOS. Is this a bandwidth or device driver issue? Thanks in advance.
  3. yes my os is on a raid 0 array
  4. When I usu my pc for a while, the disk usage goes up to 100%, my peripherals stop working and I get disconnected from the internet. Is this a problem with my os, ram, cpu or mobo? I experienced the same problem with a similar system.
  5. When I use my PC for around 5 min, my keyboard and mouse won't work but in task manager the cpu and gpu utilisation fluctuate. Also, I get disconnected from the internet in whatever game I'm playing. Please help.

  7. what's your GPU utilization? it may be a problem with your drive if it's overheating (3d-nand modules are very temperature sensitive); you could use aida64 to monitor your SSD temperatures.
  8. motherboards have VRMs (voltage regulator modules) that deliver power to the CPU. a320 boards are generally designed for cpus with low power consumption and generally have few VRMs. the ryzen 7 2700x chip consumes 105w under full load (at stock) and as a rule of thumb should generally be paired with a board that has adequate power delivery. someone correct me if i'm wrong, but if i remember correctly when you pair a cpu with a high power consumption with a board with bad VRMs, the VRMs may overheat, leading to system failure, or the CPU will not run at full speeds due to insuf
  9. noted. however, your claim was misguided. please do more research before posting inaccurate and unwanted information.
  10. i was simply correcting a mistake you made. you stated that "there is absolutely no performance difference between 2933 and 3200" which is misinformative. if you had omitted the aforementioned statement, then there would be no reason for me to comment (apart from the other mistake you made where you said 2933mhz and 3200mhz ram are incompatible).
  11. it will run, but you can't overclock and the power delivery won't be as good. also you can probably get a better b350 board for around the same price or cheaper.
  12. this is wrong. the faster ram would be downclocked to match the frequency of the slower ram i.e. your 3200mhz ram would run at 2933, as said by enderman. also wrong. ryzen chips benefit from higher clocked ram due to their infinity fabric design. but if you're running an intel chip the difference would not be noticeable during daily use (maybe 10 more points on cinebench)
  13. It's an EKWB supreme LTX CSQ. I got it used. Would a 3d-printed mounting plate work?
  14. I don't have a mounting plate for my waterblock. Is it needed? Will there be any increase in temperature if I dont put one on?
  15. Just realized that I have to tighten the nut fully, thanks for the help!
  16. I tried with the o-ring and without the o-ring. In both cases the tubing can be pulled out of the fitting. Also am I supposed to be able to tighten the nut easily when there is an o-ring in between the nut and fitting?
  17. i just measured the OD of the tubing and ID of the fitting. Tubing OD is 14mm and fitting ID is 14.5mm. Also what do you mean by compressed? I'm not using compression fittings.
  18. Just got hard tubing and fittings from aliexpress. My fittings and tubing are 10mmx14mm and the fittings are push-in fittings. When I put the tubing into the fitting, it goes in easily and doesn't fall out when I shake the tubing, but if I pull on the tubing it comes out. Is this normal?

  19. what if i put an o-ring on the tubing then screw on the other end of the fitting
  20. I got fittings from here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/14mm-G1-4-Thread-Acrylic-Hard-Tube-Fitting-Hand-Twist-3-Laps-10x14mm-Connector-For-PC/32900929599.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.99999999.265.3da33c00ftcYgM and tubing from here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/OD-12mm-14mm-16mm-PETG-Water-Cooling-Rigid-Hard-Tube-for-PC-Water-Cooling-System-50cm/32921663155.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.99999999.259.3da33c00ftcYgM
  21. when I put my tubing into my fitting it is very loose and I can pull the tubing out. what am I doing wrong? I got 13/10 fittings and tubing
  22. I'm planning on buying some RX 460 cards online. They have been flashed with a mining BIOS and I want to flash the original BIOS so they can be used for normal workloads. However most of the information I've found on the internet regarding flashing the BIOS of RX 460s has been confusing or irrelevant. Please help me on this, thanks.
  23. I just noticed someone selling pc parts 40% below rrp and I was curious as to how that is possible. Could he be selling RMA-ed components?
  24. is it possible for the alcohol to go behind the socket onto the motherboard? btw im in a warm and humid environment (31 celcius 68% humidity) i dont see any alcohol in the socket but im scared that it leaked through onto the motherboard
