  1. Fantastic, thank you! I haven't built with intel for a while and just wanted a second opinion before I commit, so thanks a lot
  2. If I were you I would just open it up and check the connections to the harddrive and the motherboard, maybe even try swapping slots on the board as I had to do. If it is something that simple then you might save yourself hours of troubleshooting.
  3. OHHH NO WAIT I meant for the board only lol let me change it, actual budget is £300-£350
  4. What happens after the black screen? Does it ever come back up on its own or do you have to reboot the system? I've had this before and instead of it being driver related, it was actually that the SATA port on my motherboard connected to my HDD was damaged. Took me a while to get to the bottom of that. I moved it to a different port and it was okay.
  5. Budget (including currency): £300 Country: England Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Nothing heavy, just a low intensity workstation Other details: Building a PC for light work, no GPU required, can't find any Ryzen G CPU's in stock so looking to Intel instead. i5-9400 is the one I'm looking at, but I'm just wondering, with 8gb RAM, will the H310 chipset be alright? Or should I look at the B365 chipset?
  6. Just a question - If I wanted to keep my phones on one VLAN, and my Pc's on another, would that mean that I'm not able to feed my PC's network connection through the phone? I'm sure we've all seen the phones that have two network ports, one for incoming from the switch, and one to carry that over to a PC. If VLAN's are set on a switchport level, does that mean I just couldn't use that feature? Or is there someway that a switch can differentiate between the devices and put out 2 VLAN's from that one port?
  7. @Enzo1001 @Semper @bowrilla Maybe a project for another time going on the cost of it all ahahaha, Thank you for your input you guys
  8. Hi guys, I have been building pc's for a little while now, but never ventured into water cooling, not even ever buying an AIO. I was wondering what the cheapest (roughly) custom cooling setup could cost. I'm not talking about the PC components, just the water cooling parts really. Imagine this is for a system with just one GPU and relatively large case I have little to no idea what exactly it takes, I'm thinking a pump, a reservoir, a few pipes, and blocks for the CPU and GPU, is that right? How much would the most basic config of these parts cost?
  9. Sorry about that! Will do. And I will also have a look at this list, thank you
  10. Hi guys, Do you think this is a balanced build for £700? I've cut corners on the motherboard and CPU in hopes of getting a better GPU. Strict budget, but please let me know your thoughts/suggestions! CPU - Ryzen 5 2600 (with cooler) - £123 GPU - XFX RX 5600XT - £280 Mobo - ASRock B450M-HDV - £54 RAM - Corsair Vengeane LPX 16GB Kit @3200Mhz Storage - WD 240GB M.2 - £35 Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD - £35 PSU - 500w Cit ATV Pro 80+ Bronze - £35 Undecided on case yet :)
  11. You're right, maybe I should have said "updates" instead of "upgrades". Do you think the two options I stated would be sensible with the existing RX 580? The Ryzen 5 1600 is in my price range so I may look into that, thank you
  12. Both those CPU's are a little out of my budget the 3600 is more than the entire of option 2
  13. Hi guys, I've listed my current specs below. I want to upgrade my board, CPU and RAM, just to future proof really. I originally bought those parts 2nd hand as I was on such a budget, and I just think it would be cool to move on now. I'm still on a budget, and I think I've worked out a couple of options here. Could you maybe advise me which option would be best please, bearing in mind I am planning to keep my GPU? I'm still on quite a budget but would like to buy these parts new. I will be running at 1080p on a 144Hz monitor. I've done some checks and I don't think either CPU should bottle
  14. All of the benchmarks on the two drives are looking fairly standard too
