  1. PC doesn't boot up. Kinda

    Or give error codes/have a diagnostic display? Maybe specs and a motherboard name might help us fix your problem.
  2. PC doesn't boot up. Kinda

    So you moved all your parts from your current build to another computer with just the motheboard being the only changed part and it works fine? If so then it probably is the motherboard. What have you tried in terms of resetting the currently not working one, CMOS/cleared or bios reset?
  3. AMD Ryzen 1600 @ 3.8Ghz, CPU Cooler?

    I can't see any message there?
  4. AMD Ryzen 1600 @ 3.8Ghz, CPU Cooler?

    Dialing it back to 1.35 @ 3.8ghz i crash, then i tried going back to what i just had 3.8ghz at @ 1.375v i freeze also, this was using prime 95 which im sure i did before but maybe i didn't. I don't crash when running an intensive game at 3.8ghz @ 1.375v. Not sure what i should do now. Should i drop it down to [email protected]? Also which cpu voltage should i believe when monitoring it from within windows, 1st (cpu) or 2nd (motherboard)?
  5. AMD Ryzen 1600 @ 3.8Ghz, CPU Cooler?

    Ok, thats not bad. I'm running 3.8Ghz at around 1.375 Volts i believe, i double check and edit this. Its set by an offset on my motherboard though.
  6. AMD Ryzen 1600 @ 3.8Ghz, CPU Cooler?

    You think so? 80 degrees at full load isn't shortening the life of my cpu, not that i care too much i'll probably end upgrading before this cpu dies. Just as long as i don't risk damaging the cpu / or more importantly causing some sort of overload and damaging other components.
  7. AMD Ryzen 1600 @ 3.8Ghz, CPU Cooler?

    Hi i'm looking for a CPU cooler for my Ryzen 1600 running at 3.8Ghz. I'm currently running stock cooler and full load such as running a game such as pubg i see my CPU reach temps of 65-75 ℃ and idle around 45-50 ℃. I would like some recommendations of CPU coolers. My budget is around £80/$100. My case is a Phanteks P400 so i think max CPU cooler height is 160mm. I was looking into some AIO's but im not so sure, if you have any good AIO's please do recommend them also. I do also believe my case might have support for a dual 280mm radiator in the front or top. Currently full load prime 95 stress test on stock cooler @ 3.8ghz runs at a very toasty 82 degrees which i'm not comfortable with hence looking for a new cooler Thanks, Luke!
  8. Best Air Cooler that fits P400

    Hmm. It looks ok. Might want something a bit more beefy in terms of cooling, like you say my chip probably puts out a lot of heat. Looks interesting, can it be setup as push pull?
  9. Best Air Cooler that fits P400

    I have Phanteks P400 case which i believe max height for cooler is 158mm or 160mm. What is best cooler i can get, Air, to cool my R5 1600 @ 3.8Ghz. My budget is around £50.
  10. New M.2 SSD installed now Hard drives not showing

    😂 Sorry. But your help is well appreciated on this community
  11. New M.2 SSD installed now Hard drives not showing

    Haha I feel like such an idiot super rookie mistake, laziness to be honest. Basically the drive that was showing was hooked up correctly while the drive that wasn't showing was still plugged into slot 5 which is hidden behind my GPU and I couldn't really see if anything was plugged into it so assumed it was empty. Turned out the cable I had plugged in slot 2 was actually a 3rd cable connected to nothing hence why it didn't work 😂 sorry for wasting your time.
  12. Motherboard: Asus PRIME B350-PLUS Just installed new Samsung 960 EVO 250GB M.2 NVME SSD. First i don't even know if the ssd is running in sata or pcie mode and can't find anywhere in my bios to change it. Second only 1 of my 2 sata hard drives are showing. For example lets call hard drive 1 2TB Drive and the other one 3TB Drive the one that is showing up contains a boot of windows 10(2TB DRIVE) while the other drive is just a storage drive for files and that is the one that is not showing up(3TB DRIVE). When a ssd is installed on my motherboard both sata 5 and 6 is not able to be used but in this case my two hard drives are plugged into sata 1(2TB) and 2(3TB) respectively. When these cables for each hard drive are swapped round still nothing shows up for the 3TB Drive.
  13. Cheapest way of hosting a large file for downloading

    Yeah it is very expensive. What would be considered a small amount, i could always try a smaller amount such as what, 3TB? I really don't know how much will be downloaded but just wanted to go with like 10TB to cover my self.
  14. Cheapest way of hosting a large file for downloading

    The storage is cheap but its the transfer that costs.
