    It is. Never found a PC this wasn't long enough for.

    When you press the power button, it tries to turn on.

    Trying to turn on sucks down everything left in every capacitor.

    Make sure you are leaving the PSU power switch, if it has one, in the ON position and unplug the power cord.

    Another possiblity is the PSU in all of this.

    If it works once each time you drain the power like this, it often points to a PSU issue.


    But it sounds like you are moving in the right direction, let us know how it goes.


    Honestly, im thinking it may be a bad PSU or CPU at this point from whats happening. Just a hunch, but thats my prime suspect so far in this one.

    that's my fear is a bad 5000 series

    Believe it or not. I just managed to finish this beast of a forum post, and the very last thing we were trying 

    , ends up working! We posted!


    I honestly have no idea how the CMOS had not been cleared before (I even thought BIOS flashes would reset the BIOS settings?), but it looks like the shorting of pins and the not so lengthy removals of the CMOS battery earlier, had not worked. Why the shorting had not been successful is beyond me, the battery removal was probably not long enough.


    Anyway, I am so happy we finally posted. Now we will try to get the ssd, hdd and the final ram stick installed, windows up and running and hopefully it goes smoothly. Maybe later we dare to touch the XMP profile again. This time we know that in case of trouble, removing the CMOS for an hour will be the reset solution :)


    Anyone else experiencing problems with using the XMP profiles with the new 5000-series? For now we will leave it at 2400MHz...


    I you solve your problem too@voidrunner959. Sounds like buying a 3000 series is a bit overkill? Surely the shop offers BIOS update for a smaller fee than the cost of a CPU? :)

    I can return it open box same day for a refund so just easy i been working on this $2500 tower for so long at this point i just want it to post and update so i can move on with my life 

  3. To make this short I'm in the same boat buddy I'm building from scratch and had all my parts last night and I'm using the 570x tuf board. would not post and was telling me was a dram problem. I'm currently running the new 64GB in my current tower as we speak so its not that. Everything comes on and everything seems to work so my last guess is the 570x needs a bios update but the 570x cant flash bios. 

    My last guess is the CUP. I have a 5900X the small thing is I run a 1600X in my current rig sooooo cant use it to update the 570X. Now i have to go buy a 3 series to update the 570X to use the 5900X (this is my hell) Ill keep you posted Im going to best buy to get the 3 series in a hour and after that will see what happens if it just post and boots to my bios i can update it and rule that part out. I feel you pain though

    Imo you only buy an ultra wide is you need one. A lot of games don't support ultra wide aspect ratios so you have block bars all the time and for gaming 144>100. Not only that, but some games that do support it end up looking s-t-r-e-c-h-e-d so unless you need screen real estate I would get a 144hz panel and call it a day. 

    I do audio engineering so I do need the restate to run plugins and DAW when mixing just thought i could get the best of both worlds


  5. I know this has been asked 1000x probably but i have been looking at 60hz all my life 


    So been racking my brain because been looking for a ultrawide at 144HZ but they are all $$$$, but I did find a few and even a ASUS tuff screen that were reasonable in the $499 range but they ran at 100HZ I'm building a gaming computer to last the next couple years and its gonna be a power house. Would sacrificing 144hz < 100HZ really effect my experience in a ultrawide? Dose anyone have a 100HZ ultrawide? how do you like it? I just want a good experience without having to drop 1k for a monitor.

    I was reading through a few articles comparing motherboards, and I also landed on the ASUS TUF Gaming X570+ as a good all-round option. It has the features I'm looking for at what seems a reasonable price. I've been shocked at the price of motherboards now. There are so many in the $600-$1000 range. I just have no idea what the differences are at that price point and if there's anything worth the higher price tag. I hear ASUS TUF is built more for reliability, and that's what I like. I've used Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS in the past, and I'm happy to stick to that family. Your suggestion of the MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk is an interesting one. I'm rather fond of MSI.


    For the case, I've been happy with Mid-towers. A reasonable amount of space to have an easy time installing drives, and I think I've only ever used ATX boards. Portability isn't a factor. I have a laptop for when I need to be mobile (and a work issued tablet). I currently have my PC sitting on top of a dolly with wheels, so I can very easily pull it away from the wall and have full access to all sides.


    PSU is one pieces where I know how important quality is, and I don't follow it enough to know which brands are reputable and what the good power supplies are right now.


    I wish you good luck with the ROG contest. I think I entered it too, but with very few entries. Since my build centers around a CPU that doesn't launch until November and I still need to get my hands on a 3080, who knows when I'll start buying components :D 

    there is a PSU section on the forums that will show you what PSU is right for you board, and I Agree some mobos are just more money but when you get up into the 600+ normally your looking at server boards I believe. I went with a full tower because I don't think I will be moving it unless I move my self and I like the added air flow available in the case.


    I feel you there with e announcements on the CPU in November I have been weighing my options on waiting or not. Even if I do wait till launch of a Ryzen 9 5000x  It dose not mean i will get one. I'm a little burned still with the 3080 launch. For now I will wait just to see and at least have time to save a tiny bit more money. The 3080 RTX I have given up on and I wont expect to see a new GPU in my computer till at the earliest maybe maybe December so 1060 6Gb for me. 


    All my money just sitting there waiting for the next thing to comes out Ill never build a new PC. 

  7. I have been planning a new PC for a while now and was looking at the X570 tufs that came out with PCI 4.0, but there are good boards like MIS tomahawk if you wanna spend like $50 





    Case in my option is a personal preference. How much room you have? Are you running a full ATX? Do you want portability? 


    And PSU is pretty simple just look at you power requirements for the MOBO and GPU. I went with a modular power supply and 850W which is over kill but I also am feeding line LV signal audio equipment into this tower so I want a little extra room power lv wise incase in need to add any new controllers soundcards and so on. always been a fan of corsair



    Hope this help! I'm looking to build my system end of October been waiting on the ROG contest just in case and gives me time to save  

  8. Hello!! 

    I'm using a CF397 Samsung with a 60hz refresh rate and 8bit depth its been a good little monitor 32" curved was a black Friday special. I wanted to move on to a gamming monitor now knowing a little more. While this is a finr monitor I can tell when I'm trying to run higher resolution games and so on my little CF397 is doing its best. I wanted to ask if its worth it to continue with a curved monitor for gamming or go back to flat? 


     looking to spend max $400 on something around 140hrz and hopefully same 32" if any advice I would love some.

    Hit us with your best Linus Tech Tips video suggestions! This is to replace our old "What should we review next" thread. Linus or one of the writers will read these suggestions, but they may not reply to you in this thread directly.


    Linus Tech Tips

    I have always wondered about different mounting techniques like vertical GPUS and Top Mounted PSU and so on. I always want to make the most out of my expansion cards or RGB RAMMMMMMM. (when i eventually get the money to make one) but I think  a video on unique and interesting mounting tips would be pretty cool. As i have heard Vertically mounting your GUP is bad? due to air flow? Then why do it? 


    thanks for the read :)

    I'm gonna be honest I don't know too much about bit/sample rates.

    No worries simply put its the the audio range in which a digital sound wave is read (highs and lows on pitches) so you hear subtle sound details such as percussion and so on for bit depth. sample rate is how often the sound wave is sampled. for example, making a flip book with 20 pages vs the same flip book with 100pages. The one with 100 will have cleaner details and more more information. The more bit rate and sample rate you have the more processing power is required along with high audio converter and or speaker that can display it. You cant run a 4k signal through a non 4k cable for reference. 


    P.S: currently 90% of audio streaming services run at a compressed 16bit / 44.1Khz which is worse then CD quality sound 


    sorry to get all technical 

  11. Budget (including currency): about 2k (banking on Black Friday sales and selling my current PC to offset cost-ish) 

    Country: US

    Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I mainly want it to run high end audio programs and be able to do 32/24bit depth rate and upwards of 196Hz samples for any audiophiles out there. I also want it to be future proofed for the next 7-8 years give or take for new games and so on. this will be my Xbox/ps5 system. Monitors and peripherals I can acquire later. If any one has any suggestion or an idea to reduce cost to about 1800 I appreciate it. I also know that the 3080 is eating into my price and I also know that they are not available right now

    Other details

    https://newegg.io/76be627 (current build I'm looking at / already have a case and 140mmx6 fans) & not shown but a sound card most likely a Creative Sound Blaster Z PCIe 116dB which i know is 24bit depth but IDK if i wanna drop $300 on a sound card interface. 

    Thank you for any suggestions

    Damn dude I'd kill for a 1060, I'm stuck with an rx 460 ripped from my friend's motherboard in his pc fire

    I was lucky it was on clearance at a best buy in a small town in the middle of no were I had to open a credit card with them just to take up the chance. That's the only new thing in my computer I was able to get it in January, but it's starting to show age, also when video doing video editing and audio production its not cutting it and my system freezes or crashes 90% of the time makes it hard to do anything for my production classes exsheshaly now with covid :(

    Man idk if my rig is shity enough I mean its a little bellow mid-tier and only has on fan but i don't think its crap-tastic lol 

  14. I'm close to doing a full PC upgrade and the only thing unatonable is a 3080 :( well duh there no were for anyone. I'm running a MSI 1060 6GB its been a good little card and still working great. how long still we see more 3080s and is it worth waiting or should I just move to a 2060 Super?

    The x570 tuf is decent, it uses 12 sic639 and will easily handle a 3900x, budget for a board? and currency and location? but this board is pretty good.

    About $200 for a board I would not want to go above that and US/Ca, and as long as it can take a beating I'm running on a gigabyte Am350m-Gaming3 board so anything is a upgrade at this point lol  

  16. Was looking into going all out and upgrading again and have been drawn to the Asus Tuf Boards (maybe its asthetic thing love me some black and yellow) Im gonna be running hopefully A Ryzen 9 series and a RTX 3080 when i can get my hands on one, but I haven't seen to much on the Tuf boards and my friend lives and dies by gigabyte. If anyone has any info I would love to hear from you :)
