  1. I'm sure they are compatible. As for the BIOS version, I'm not sure it's up to date. How can I check without being able to turn on the computer?
  2. Hey nerds, So, I just "finished" my first PC build again. I had this problem before but got word I probably had a bad/mediocre psu so I bought a new one. I've linked all the new parts I used below. Yet I’m still having the same issue. At first, I turned on my power supply and pressed the power button on my PC and all the fans worked, the RGB came on, all was well with the world, and then it just shut off. Didn't even make it to post. When I try to turn it back on, the top EZ Dedug LED flashes once (red) , followed by the flash of the other three lights (also red). The tiny mo
  3. Firstly, thank you to everyone that responded. Every review helps in some way. I did buy a new power supply. It’s a EVGA 600W. Unfortunately, though, I am having the same exact problem. Still the CPU red blink and no power. I pulled my motherboard out to make sure there were no broken pins, etc. And all of my cables I believe are in the right place, including my 24 pin power cable. Please help!!!!
  4. Hey Nerds, So, I'm looking for a power supply. My parts list is below. I'm hoping to stay in the $50-ish range. My problem is that I require a 8+4 pin for my CPU. I suppose that's normal, but I am a complete newb and this is my first build. When looking for a power supply, I've looked for that in the connectors description, and don't see that. I'm a bit confused. Is a 8+4 pin the same as a EPS12V, or should I be looking for a power supply with a 12 pin eps? I'll admit I have no idea what I'm doing here. I thought having enough wattage was enough, but it clearly wasn't.
  5. Thank you for your advice and help. I will look into these as well.
  6. Thanks for your advice. I will heed it and get a better power supply. Hopefully that's all that's wrong with my build. Cheers.
  7. Like I said, I'm completely new at this. From my research, it seemed that having enough wattage was good enough to purchase my power supply. I knew next to nothing about compatible cables, etc. But, I'm living and learning as I go. Thanks for your advice. I will be returning my ps and going for something at least A-, like you suggested.

The tiny motherboard fan at the bottom also begins to spins but stops almost immediately. It all happens very quickly,
  9. Hey Nerds, I’m planning my first build and I’m stuck at storage. The motherboard I have is: MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard. The storage I want is: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (2TB, pt # ST2000DM008). I looked on the motherboards website for compatible storage and didn’t see the Barracuda I want, but a friend told me that sometimes the sites don’t have every compatible part, so the storage I want may still work. Does anyone know if this combo will still run okay? Thanks for helping this newbie, I appreciate any and a
  10. Okay, thanks so much for your reply and advice. I'll make sure my RAM is suitable for what I need. ☺
  11. I figured I was probably misinformed about something somewhere in the "bottlenecking-world", but I appreciate your advice. You actually cleared the subject up a bit for me. Thanks for your advice.
  12. Hey everyone, Newbie here. I'm going to start my first build soon. Just purchased a Ryzen 9 3900x for my CPU, which pretty much blew most of my budget, but, I was recently given a GTX 1070 for pretty cheap. I know bottlenecking is going to happen, but, would it be so severe that no one with a brain or any kind of experience would dare use it in this build? My build is not necessarily for gaming. More for productivity. I'll be modeling and sculpting in 3D (blender, ZBrush) and doing some game development (unity) and plenty of drawing (photoshop). I plan to have a good
  13. Hey Techies, I am a 3d modeler/game developer. I'm working on my first PC build, but I'm stuck between GPU's. I just ordered the Ryzen 9 3900x for a CPU, and I'm still doing research on RAM and storage and the like, but I've included a list below of my current build specs, if you're interested in looking or need it for comparison reasons, etc. Anyway, I'll be modeling mainly in blender, as well as doing some rendering, sculpting in zbrush, I'll be doing game development in Unity, as well as some photo editing in Photoshop. Of course the best GPU one could get is probably the 2080 t
  14. Sup Techies, So, I’m working through my first PC build, and I need some advice before going forward. I haven't purchased anything yet, so my options are still flexible. For context reasons, my pc will be heavily used for 3D modeling, some rendering, sculpting, as well as animations. I’m talking blender, maya, zbrush, unity, photoshop, etc. No email checking, or streaming, or 4K editing or anything of the sort. The only gaming I’ll be doing is testing my own, so I guess FPS is important in that respect. I think I'm gonna go with a Ryzen 9 3900x for a CPU and a MSI GeForc
