  1. Hello, this is my first time building a PC for myself and when I tried to boot it for the first time, no case fans were spinning and also the CPU fan was not spinning. I had taken each piece of the computer out and had tried to run a test with only the 24 pin, CPU pin, CPU, and CPU fan plugged but the CPU fan did not spin either. Upon further inspection, the red light indicating a problem with the CPU flashes red once and goes away. I have checked the CPU and CPU socket and have identified no bent pins and nothing in the socket of the CPU. Nothing seems to be damaged on the motherboard after inspecting it with other people. Any help is appreciated with this and thank you in advance. My specs for this computer are: Ryzen 5 1500X MSI B350 PC Mate Motherboard Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Corsair - Vengence 1x8 GB Western Digital Blue 1TB Hard Drive Asus GTX 1060 3GB Apevia X-Mirage EVGA 450W 80+ Bronze
  2. hi i'm building my first pc. i'm 80% sure that this build is compatible except for the g skill ram. on amazon( it says "Chipset: Intel Z270 Platform / Intel Z170 Platform CPU: Kaby Lake (LGA 1151) / Skylake (LGA 1151)" i have a z370 chipset motherboard. but when you go onto the g skill site it says that the ram is compatible with z370 motherboards. overall i don't have a clue about the ram. but if there are any of the other parts which don't go together please let me know and it would be nice if you suggest a replacement of similar performance and price. my list: any help is appreciated thanks! :)

  5. Hello, my name is Ben and for a long time i have wanted to build my own gaming PC. this year for Christmas, my father has given me a budget of 1200 euros/1500 dollars to build my own computer. I would like an intel i7 6700k and a gtx 1070 with a white NZXT S340 case. an ssd with 16gb ram would be nice too an overkill PSU would be appreciated. I won't be overclocking so i don't need liquid cooling. i need the parts shipped to Ireland. if you could help me out with sourcing these parts that would be awesome. thanks, Ben
  6. Hey guys, This is my very first custom build, and I don't have very much experience in this area. I would like you to review/comment on my custom PC build. This particular build is designed to be a budget PC that can be upgraded in the future. I need it for every day tasks (such as schoolwork, and browsing the web), and some light gaming. Please don't hesitate to be brutally honest. Here's my build: AMD FX 8350 (8 Core) - $149.99 Gigabyte GA-78LMT - 48.45 2 Sticks of 4gb G.Skills X-Series (DDR3) - $29.99 Western Digital Caviar Blue 360gb - $22.90 EVGA GEFORCE GTX-7 0 TI - $119.99 Deepcool TESSARACT Mid-Tower Case - $30.99 Logisys 480W ATX Power Supply - $11.90 Total: $414.21
  7. Hi. I am new to all of this PC building and honestly i suck at it finding out whether or not these components are compatible with eachother and worth the money. So if you custom-PC veterans could offer me some help i would be happy. My build is listed below this section. Asus x99-A socket 2011-3 MSI GTX 950 GAMING 2G Intel core I5 4690k-4 Fury memory black 16GB kit Zalman z11 plus-midi tower (case) Corsair CX750 - 750W PSU Samsung 850 EVO MZ 75E250 250 GB Toshiba DTO1ACA200 2TB Corsair h75 hydro series CPU cooler some kind of thermal compound? BenQ Gaming RL2455HM (Monitor) Since i am new to all this i am willing to listen to any and all advice.
  8. So my old computer is dead. Rip. It's time for a new beast. Here's the specs. Case: Raidmax Seiran II Gaming Case Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4790 Processor (4x 3.60GHz/8MB L3 Cache) ProcessorCooling: Asetek 510LC Liquid CPU Cooling System [SOCKET-1150] - ARC Silent High Performance Fan Memory: 16 GB [8 GB x2] DDR3-2133 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand VideoCard: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 - 2GB - Single Card Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI -- 2x PCIe x16, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 PowerSupply: 600W Standard HardDrive: 1 TB Hard Drive -- 32MB Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive OpticalDrive(Mandatory): LG Blu-ray Reader SoundCard: 3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard NetworkCard: Onboard LAN Network (Gb or 10/100) Total Cost= $850-$900 (various discounts pending) The pc will mainly be used for gaming and basic C++ and C# programming tasks. Is there anyway I can shave some money off without changing the Video Card and Hard Drive? Ill also be having the Hard Drive arrive pre-formated, and have my local repair shop install Windows 7. Having it come with windows 7 is an extra ~$150. How did I do? If anything is off please let me know. I like my house and don't want it to burn down when I plug it in for the first time. Dont know if this matters, but I used to build it. Recommended from a friend but if there is a better (cheaper) place to go Ill go there.
  9. So I will be building a new computer soon (just waiting for the rest of my parts to come in) and I would like to get some tips and safety advice for overclocking the computer below.The Build - the research I've done, it seems as though you just increase the voltage manually, get a stable clock speed with temperatures around 65-C, get a fixed voltage and set an offset voltage. Is that true? Is there anything else I should be concerned about when modifying any of these settings such as TuboBoost or SmartCache (if that is even an option?)Also I have no idea what I should set my offset voltage to. From what I hear, it means that it adds or subtracts to my default voltage when the CPU is under load... Is that true?Any response is taken into consideration. All of the info above is what I got from doing research on the subject. If you could list as many tips on stability that come to mind I'd be very grateful.
  10. I have been using Macs the last 13 years for editing and motion graphics. Recently Macs are becoming less and less upgradable and financially unviable and I want to switch to PC but have no idea where to start. It is like learning a whole new language, especially trying to "build" a work station. I am coming off using a Mac Pro (late 2013), My main programs of use are Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop. My secondary are Cinema 4D, Nuke and Moca. I have around $3.5K budget and am looking for: 32GB Ram 8-10 cores SSD for main drive I use 2 monitors (DP) I have heard good things about AMD FirePro W8100 but again this is all new to me. any help would be much appreciated.
