  1. I got pictures of the BIOS if you need them. You can clearly see it has the profile on, but the frequency at the bottom isn't changing.
  2. I'm using a TV as a monitor for right now. I'm planning on buying a monitor soon. I tried using the remote to change the picture settings and it was still the same. I just believe the BIOS doesn't understand the screen size since it's a TV and not a monitor. I was able to get ROG CPU-Z from Armoury Crate. It shows this in memory, CPU, and BIOS version. I haven't messed with BIOS because I don't really want to install a version that will mess up my PC in some way.
  3. For some odd reason my bios menu doesn't fit my screen properly so it like sucks to read anything. However, I tried and I think I found it. I changed out of EZ mode and it said something about XMP and then I picked XMP I. Which says 3200 MHz, but literally it still says 2666 MHz in task manager when I rebooted it. I picked the XMP profile however, when I looked down it never changed the actual RAM frequency. It still showed 2666 MHz.
  4. No, actually. I heard about XMP, but I didn't know what it meant. Should there be an option for that?
  5. I said that in my stuff above! It was about $130 when I bought it. I believe inflation due to low stock is the reason or just because it's from a different seller.
  6. Can you show me a link where to buy those? I'm looking for about 170 in price I think maybe 200 is the highest I'll go.
  7. I built my first PC a while ago. Since the graphics card crisis is ongoing I'm working off of integrated graphics. It's not the best, but I'm trying to wait this out. Currently, I have 16 GB of RAM. 8 GB of that is allocated to the integrated graphics. I'm thinking about buying the same kit again and upgrading to 32 GB. I'm not sure if it's worth it. However, I'm hoping it helps by giving the integrated graphics 16 GB instead of 8 GB. I know it seems like a small performance change, but I'd try anything before spending x4 on the graphics card I'd like. Also, in BIOS it tells me I'm only gettin
  8. Thank you! I won't mess with these fans and just buy a new one. The temperature right now is really good and it is able to drop temperatures fast. After closing a game within a few minutes it drops from 50c to 29ish c.
  9. Do you believe one front fan would be enough? My build isn't a beast and even with the graphics card it won't be. I plan on a 1650 super. I mostly wanna play games like GTA V, Minecraft, CS:GO. Some of the older games. I don't plan to push this PC over the edge, but just some casual stuff.
  10. Also here is a look at my build from the front and back. I know the cable management is bad. I've been working on it for 2 days and I'm just glad it actually boots. I've been without a computer for a month or more because I gave up my old one to a family member. I don't know if the SSD was really meant to be mounted in the back, but it works and it keeps it out of the way of my little wires in the front. This isn't anything permanent as I plan to add a graphics card later and probably change out the CPU cooler sometime. The airflow is powerful as well with the fan up to it. The fans are pretty
  11. Am I connecting them wrong? I don't know why fans would cause a computer not to boot. Connections is really the only probably I've had with this build. The CPU, RAM, SSD, and the motherboard have given me no problems with installation. Except the stock cooler because it clicks in and doesn't screw so its finnicky, but I made sure to get it in there as good as I can. I don't know if it would be just easier to buy a new fan with a normal connector or not. I'd only have one fan running at that point, but it would be better than nothing.
  12. The PC is running great. I've been using it for hours with no problems. I've turned it off and on and did updates to see if anything changed and nothing bad has happened. The temps stay on 50c when I'm playing games and listening to music or YouTube. The highest the temps have ever gotten is like straight 60c. I have my stand fan pushing air into the case because there is no intake. The two fans in the front are supposed to be the intake. I haven't OC or messed with any settings because I'm a noob and I'm afraid to blow it up. So it's all on default. This is the best picture I could find of wh
  13. There is a cord from the PSU that has a molex to a molex and then to a fan connector. I went with the best guess and plugged them into one of the molexes. Then I plugged the fan part into the motherboard.
  14. They are the stock case fans. Here is my case: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P23M99T?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1 The front two fans are molex apparently. They are plugged into each other and I found a molex connector in the back. So I just plugged it into there and then plugged the fan end into the Cha_2. Every time I do that it refuses to boot and it resets my power supply to where it doesn't work until I paper clip it. Maybe they aren't supposed to be connected together? There is a cord with two molexes that goes to a fan cable. I think I was overloading it by plugging them togeth
  15. I'm using the stock cooler. I only have one fan which is the back fan. It's pushing air out. I have my room fan on the PC as well. It's always freezing in my room, so I don't believe it would just blow up. I just don't want the fateful PC randomly turning off because it's too hot. Here is my build: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i3-10100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor $119.99 @ B&H Thermal Compound ARCTIC MX-
