  1. Very strange. Well, honestly, I've got no idea...
  2. Which is why you don't enable Fast Boot. Generally, I usually recommend people not to turn Fast Boot on because I've had similar issues with PCs not wanting to boot and stuff, as well as random crashes and blue screens. I'm pretty much certain that it has nothing to do with your boot drives. My assumption is that it's either a faulty mobo, or just the whole line of motherboards having the same issue. Which is why I'm pretty sure it's the motherboard itself. My conclusion: It's probably the motherboard. Gigabyte being gigabyte, they've probably messed something u
  3. hmm... just to confirm, RAM is in slots 2 & 4 or 1 & 3? If not, make sure to put them in either of the two, because of Dual channel. Did you try reseating?
  4. Thank you for merging! Far easier to track now.
  5. This is the electricity cost over here (we're friends). And yes, because we're in the EU, we've got 220-240V plugs. Cheers!

    Depending on the CPU, it could be that either your CPU doesn't have an iGPU (Ryzen non-G series), which is nothing to worry about or, in Intel's non-F series that it's disabled because you have a GPU in (which is also nothing to worry about because that's how it works, it's disabled by default). Considering that you have 3 DP's and 1 HDMI, my assumption would be that... well... the HDMI port on the GPU is dead. I can't be 100% sure that it's dead, but judging by it, it seems to me like that's the issue. You could try getting one of those DP (male) to HDMI (female) adapters and seeing
  7. I agree for the most part. Except that I'd suggest saving a bit on CPU Cooling and just getting a Scythe Fuma 2. Also, I completely agree for the PSU and would suggest an HX1200i instead. Why? Because 3090 still suffers from those random Power Consumption spikes that often cause crashes and stuff. So yeah, that's the 2nd change I'd make. Third would certainly be the case (though, it's preference), which is where I'll definitely suggest the Phanteks P500A D-RGB. It's a sick case, with loads of room and it looks lovely. about that incompatibility warning... well, it's because only some mobo

    Weird issue, indeed. It could be a GPU Driver issue? Use DDU to uninstall the current drivers and reinstall an older version just in case. Also, reseating the GPU might help as well. Have you tried other GPU ports? (assuming you have 2 HDMI, 2 DP, try plugging both into the other ones) Or hell, you could try even reseating the GPU lol It might also be an indication of the GPU failing (though, it doesn't have to be that)? Let us know of the results. If it doesn't help, someone else might hop in with some more suggestions.
  9. Hello! Thanks to @DatTestBench and @LukeSavenije I got an answer to my question about mining GPUs and if they are worth it. From their answer, I came to the conclusion that the "deal" I found is worth it. I found an RX 580 4gb that was mining for about a year and a half for 90 euros (about 110 USD). Used hardware prices are whack in my country and that's why I'll refer to this ad as a "deal". (they were mining ETH btw) Basically, I found a mining rig with 6 XFX RX 580's. The dude is selling the GPUs 90 eur a piece. The owner claims that the GPUs mined in well ventilated ro
  10. Okay, so here's the possible final decision: CPU - Xeon X5670 CPU Cooler - either the Antec A30 or the Snowman MoBo - Huananzhi X58 GPU - GeForce 210 (aka. The Worst GPU - according to some youtubers) PSU - BeQuiet! System Power 9 400w Case - yet to be decided RAM - Aliexpress ECC 32gb (2 modules, 16gb 1600mhz each) Storage - 120gb BioStar s100 SSD (just for the OS) Storage - 2x 2tb Seagate BarraCuda 7200RPM HDD, (for my PC's external storage for videos and other stuff)
  11. Sadly, not in US nor UK. The shipping and the local customs would REALLY kill the deal and make it not worth it, because I've seen cases of customs charging up to 200% of the item value!!!
  12. Not so cheap locally. An E5-2620 V2 xeon would come in handy since it's ~20$. As I said, I might need the GPU, so I'd get something weaker like an RX460
  13. I would need the GPU. not sure why, but I'd still keep it in there as a backup plan in case of something (idk what)
  14. actually, yeah, not cheap at all. Any recommendations on whether I should just get one of these CPU's, a single-socket mobo, 16gb of ram, an RX460 2gb and a 400w PSU? It will not only cut the cost of the electricity bill, but also be cheaper to get...
  15. Hello! My name is iMonstaa - and I'm new around here lol So, basically, my question is: How can I run a 24/7 server (for a website, a discord bot, as a home storage system and a Minecraft server) for cheap (low power consumption also)? I was thinking of getting a few Raspberry Pi's and making a Pi Cluster, but I think it would be better if I got one of those cheaper dual CPU motherboards on AliExpress, 24gb of DDR3 ram, 2x 6-core Xeons, a 600w PSU, 2x 2tb HDDs and a budget GPU. So, may I get your thoughts on which idea is better? ?
