  1. I got it to post last night with one stick of RAM. The CPU is recognized in the BIOS. It's an Intel CPU so there are no pins to bend. Before I put it back in the anti-static bag and into the box I took the CPU out of the socket to see if there was any thermal paste in the socket and there was none. I put the CPU back in the socket and it was done correctly. Like I said the CPU is being picked up in the BIOS.
  2. So I got an update. I screwed around with it and tried some stuff. I finally got it to post. But not in a dual channel configuration. The memory kits I am using come in 2x8GB and 2x16GB. They are supposed to be used in a dual channel configuration. The memory slots on the H170 Pro Gaming are labeled as A1, A2, B1 and B2. A2 and B2 would be for the dual channel configuration. When I put the 16GB kit in the A2 and B2 slots it won't post. The little red LED stays on the DRAM. Some times it will jump from the CPU back to the DRAM light. But if I put just one
  3. So I am using my old hardware plus some new hardware I bought to build a PC for my nephew. The issue I am having is the PC won't boot. Parts I am using are ASUS H170 Pro Gaming motherboard i7 6700 My old Vengeance LPX 16GB RAM kit MSI GTX 1070 TI All the lights on the motherboard come on. The CPU fan runs. The case fans which are connected to the headers on the motherboard come on. The PSU works fine. The lights on the GPU work as well if that means anything. There is 4 lights in the upper right hand corner
  4. Thanks for the reply and the links. I will look at them later. I will still look around at the other Corsair PSU's. My main concern was the connection and so on. The G2 is actually the one I am using now. I figured they would be pretty good PSU's. Like I said I want to make sure he has a good one. Thanks for the reply as well.
  5. I have a motherboard, GPU, memory kit, HDD I was going to sell for $350 but the guy isn't interested cause I haven't heard back from him. I made a thread about it a while back. So I decided I will just buy a PSU, case and SSD and build a PC for my nephew who is using his older brothers old crap PC. The parts I am using ASUS H170 Pro Gaming MOBO i7 6700 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz MSI GTX 1070 Ti I was going to use my old R9 390 for the build but I want him to have a better GPU that he can carry over to a new build until he gets better one. I know it's
  6. The computer I am using is right next to my modem and I connect it with a ethernet cable. I have no idea what I would need cause I never had to deal with this issue. I believe they are called wireless network cards? What would be a good brand? Is there different types? Is there a USB solution? The motherboard I need the wireless card for is an Asus H170 pro gaming.
  7. I did. But I figured I would ask some people who might know more than me. I know it's older hardware so I didn't want to ask more for than it's worth like some kind of d-bag on Ebay or craigslist I don't know cause the only AMD card I have ever owned is the R9 390. I believe the 390 was still better than the 400 series of cards. I don't know about the 500 series. I know he said he wants the PC parts to build a PC so he can play World of Warcraft. Which as far as I know isn't that demanding or it didn't used to be. Never played it myself.
  8. It's 4 year old PC hardware. I will just let him have it all for $350. Just as I figured. About a third of what I paid for it all new in 2016. I got someone willing to buy it from me locally so I will run with it. I told him it wouldn't be too much cause this stuff loses value fast. Thanks for the replies and help.
  9. I already have a new build. I went completely SSD with it. I have a 4TB SSD and a 2TB SSD. I don't even need the HDD. I paid $120 for it back in 2016 so I am guessing that $60 would be fine.
  10. So I got this guy who wants to buy my old hardware. I don't want to overcharge for it and scare him off. What I plan to sell ASUS H170 pro Gaming motherboard i7 6700 Corsair vengeance 16GB MSI R9 390 2 TB Western Digital Black HDD Anyone got an idea on how much this would be worth? I never thought about selling it. I don't really want to collect PC hardware. I was going to just give to a family member but someone is offering to buy it from me. So why not?
  11. So for anyone who has the same issue I went digging around on the internet and found this. I am using the same Joystick, a Logitech 3D Pro. It seems having a USB joystick or a controller like an Xbox One/360 controller will stop your display from shutting off. That is really dumb. Why MS hasn't fixed it is beyond me. But that's how you fix it. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/windows-10-screen-wont-turn-off-after-specified/51ede8de-2899-4d0c-a5cb-a45529396d2b
  12. It's not going to hurt anything. It will either work or it won't. If it doesn't work just let it boot back into the BIOS and disable the DOCP. Exit and save your BIOS setting and your PC will boot up as normal.
  13. I had this problem and I can confirm it. Restart your PC and go into the BIOS. enable DOCP. Then save and exit the BIOS. If it's going to accept it your PC will boot up as normal. If not you will hear your PC start up and then shut off, probably a few times. Then it will just go into the BIOS and you will have disable the DOCP to boot into Windows. Then you can either try a manual overclock of the RAM or get a new kit. Some people on here told me that the corsair Vengeance RAM does not overclock well on AMD boards. That the Corsair Vengeance LPX is more aimed at Intel
  14. I tried DOCP with some 32GB 3200MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX. My ASUS X570 TUF didn't like it. It wouldn't let me use DOCP. So I bought a G.Skill 16GB kit that runs at 3600MHz. It's the Trident kind with the RGB. DOCP worked fine with that. It said it was made to work with Ryzen and the OC profile and it does. DOCP is fine and safe. It's the only way you will be able run your RAM at the 3200MHz advertised speed. If DOCP won't work then you have to try and manually OC it. I don't know how to do that which is why I just bought the new kit. That or you will have to run your RAM at the b
