  1. When selecting resolutions for my second monitor in the Nvidia control panel, 1920x1080 appears only in the 'Ultra HD, HD, SD' section, while only resolutions 1680x1050 and below appear under PC. This only became a problem for me recently when I tried making some custom resolutions, for the refresh rates, and realised the colours on my secondary monitor were notably better when set to it. Upon setting it to a resolution from the PC section, the same is seen. Furthermore, when I make a custom resolution for 1920x1080, it says one already exists under PC, and setting a custom one at 59hz (which
  2. Alright, the drives have been plugged into a different computer. The HDD actually did get recognised, but the SSD remains nebulous. So, what do? Are there two points of failure? Did the SSD die but the HDD remains? What steps do I take from here on?
  3. I'm happy to do that, she'll be home in around two to two and a half hours That's my primary concern at the moment. The guy who sold it to us was super nice, and covered the shipping charges and all that, but I don't know just how knowledgeable he was. The PSU shipped without any molex cables, but it did have a molex to double sata converter, so I have no idea why that was in there. I'm hoping plugging them into a different computer will show they aren't dead, but I know it's not exactly an unlikely possibility
  4. Me and my friend are putting together a computer for her, and recently got all the parts. Over the course of about 7 hours we finished putting it all together and turned it on with success, however noticed that neither her Team T-Force Vulcan G SSD or her Western Digital HDD were showing up in the BIOS. We've tried swapping sata ports, tried using a different power connector on the modular PSU as well as a different cable entirely, and we've tried swapping around a few options in the BIOS, but nothing seems to be picking them up. I asked her to check, and I don't think the drive is spinning up
  5. That's actually a very interesting point. I hadn't considered using one of those little 5 dollar Raspberry Pis as essentially just a lights coordinator. I mean, double sided tape it to the inside of your case and you're pretty much good to go. That's pretty awesome, think there's an adaptor that would let me power it from molex? Although, it still wouldn't allow it control through the motherboard/PC without some annoyingly complicated software. EDIT: Heh heh, found it
  6. I see. So, theoretically, totally functional, just practically dangerous? I mean, sounds like a plan to me. As for controlling the speed of the device through the fan header?
  7. I'll keep it in mind. I do tend to be a bit verbose : P
  8. Are you referring to empty sockets on a modular power supply, or Sata and the like? The big difference would be control through the BIOS, as I said, allowing the device to ramp up with system temperature. That, and not having to bother with yet more cables coming from a PSU. It's not the greatest reason for something so silly, but fan headers are simply more convenient.
  9. Hiya! Sorry if I'm doing anything wrong here, brand new to this place! I was just wondering something, and couldn't find anything online (though I found plenty of fan splitting guides), so I thought I'd come post my question here. Could I power any random device, such as a small motor toy of some kind, off of a motherboard fan header? I assume you would need to tune the power being sent through to the device through the BIOS as to not fry it, but that's about where my technical knowledge ends. I don't imagine PWM to be an issue, as all motherboards I know of are fully functioning without
