  1. Hi there, I currently have a gaming PC with the following: i7-6700k GTX 1080 Ti I don’t fully know when production of newer technologies or when 3000 series cards and other bits and bobs will become readily available so I’m a bit stuck on weather it is sensible to spend my money on current technology or keep waiting. My original plan was to build a high end gaming PC this year for PCIe 4.0 when the 3000 series became easily available and was hoping as per previous generations a 3080 Ti variant would be released that would last years. That said we are wh
  2. Ok, so has it now damaged the GPU because powering it in the original configuration the GPU doesn’t seem to power up?
  3. It was a Corsair RM650x. I connected 2x 6 pin connected to the card itself. It was still connected to the Alienware motherboard. Then I linked two pins on the ATX connecter to enable startup, as detailed here: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-power-up-an-ATX-Power-Supply-without-a-PC/
  4. Hi there, I have an Alienware X51 with the 330W Power Supply Adapter and a GTX970. I was led to believe that the PSU wasn’t enough when I was playing demanding games as my monitors kept turning off (fine when not in game) anyway; I purchased a separate case PSU purely for connecting to GPU I linked out the two pins so allow startup. I didn’t get any bangs or pops but my graphics card didn’t start up and I haven’t been able to get it to work since. Does anyone know what could be wrong or anywhere I can send for repair or repair myself? Thank you.
  5. Shrimp, thank you very much. I'll see how it goes. Really appreciate your time.
  6. Shrimp, Thank you very much for your response, and the detailed post you linked. In the MSI 970 BIOS I can't find a setting for LLC, so I've assumed CPU Voltage which was set to [Auto] and shown at 1.464V. (I've attached a generic picture from google of the settings). I changed the setting from [Auto] to [+0.100] and I read that the VRAM voltage should be 0.1V higher, so I ensured this was at 1.65V. Making this change it ran fine last night whilst playing Modern Warfare. I've attached some screenshots of HWInfo and AIDA64.
  7. Hi there, In 2017 I built a PC with the following components: Mobo: MSI 970 Gaming CPU: AMD FX 8350 Black Edition CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X RAM: HyperX FURY 2x8GB 1866MHz DDR3 CL10 SSD: Kingston SSDNow UV400 120GB GPU: Sapphire AMD RX480 Nitro+ 8GB PSU: Corsair RM550X WiFi Card: TP-LINK TL-WN851ND 300Mbps LED Card: NZXT 2m LED Cable There are two case fans. The machine ran perfectly for around a year and then started freezing randomly. This isn’t a blue screen, it just freezes on whatever is on the display. Onl
