  1. Hey guys, I've sold my graphics card and would like to get a GTX 1080 in a few months. But there is a great sale price for the Dell S2716DG now and I wonder if I could run it with my onboard graphics from my CPU for those months (wuthout playing games of course). Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi guys, posted here once before and got some good feedback, original thread can be found here: So to recap this is the hardware I'm working with: Asus ROG Maximus X code, seagate ST8000NE0004 Enterprise Nas hdd ( IronWolf Pro )*3 Samsung MZ-V6P1T0BW 1000Gb 960 Pro So it was suggested to me to use software RAID rather than onboard hardware RAID so I haven't had much testing time but yesterday I played around with Windows 10 Storage Spaces and then with the motherboard onboard RAID and transfer rates obviously fluctuate but I feel I get better transfer rates using onboard RAID...or am I doing something wrong? Any advice or thoughts on this? Any pros and cons I need to consider regarding expanding the array or transferring it to another PC at a later stage? I'm not really too concerned about CPU utilization when writing because with an 8700K I don't feel it's a huge issue. Also the PC is more or less standalone so for the most part I'll be the only one writing to it though might be multiple devices reading from it once I populate the drives and setup Plex Media Server.
  3. So I bought a new system today: Intel 8400 MSI Z370-A Pro Coolermaster ML240L Phanteks P400 Thermaltake TR2 S 650w 8GB Corsair Value RAM (DDR4) WD Blue 2tb There's no discrete GPU as this is not a computer for gaming, but rather just come cpu intensive tasks for which the integrated graphics will do. I go to turn it on, it posts and goes to the 'no boot device detected' screen - which is normal, there is no OS yet. I do it once more - NOPE. No display. Black screen, no signal detected. Welp, maybe the bios disabled integrated graphics? I put in an old gpu with DVI out and yay, I get a signal, however, when I enter the bios, it's not right [photo1] (according to what it should look like in the manual). From there, I attempt to use the small section of the bios available but it just gets worse [photo2]. I reset the bios settings to default, cleared the CMOS, put the ram into different slots, even attempted to update the bios: It booted into the m-flash system thing, displayed 'm-flash CPU 39 C / 102 F' for like 1 frame (1/60th of a second) then shut down the whole system. I'm very pressed for time and am unable to take the motherboard back to the place I bought it (because it's so far away). Literally any help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. im currently exploring parts for part of a server project. in which im aiming for several TB of capacity, and have it, in part, function as a file/ streaming server, using 4 HDD's. Im planning to use a raid 10 config to do it, but what im not sure on is this. would the built in controller on a board like this: https://ebay.com/itm/ASUS-P9X79-LGA-2011-Socket-R-Intel-Motherboard/323050513655?epid=127392280&hash=item4b374fa4f7:g:scAAAOSwl2haQXc- be enough? the 4 sata ports i think i would have to use are sata 300. will that be fast enough for file storage/ media streaming, or should i look into an add in raid card? thanks in advance.
  5. DT880s with AsRock Taichi

    Hey guys, I have an AsRock Taichi and would like to upgrade my audio setup. I was wondering if the Taichi would be able to power it the DT 800s by Beyerdynamic (600ohm) Thanks in advance Jack
  6. Mod Mic 5 very quiet (Software Issue?)

    Hi guys, I got myself a nice pair of HD600s to replace my Kraken. Back then I got the little Zalman lav mic that is sort of bad... Recently I upgraded that to a Mod Mic 5 und my Motherboard to an M Power Gaming Titanium. It has quite good onboard audio and it sounds nice when I record a short clip in Audacity, but for my friends to hear me in Discord, Teamspeak, Skype etc I need to amplify it via software +10 dB which obviously sounds terrible. Do you have any ideas how I can fix this?
  7. Hi, I have Realtek onboard audio, and I only use its mic input, which stops working (detects no signal from the mic) a few times a day, and requires me to unplug and re-plug the mic for it to work again. Disabling and re-enabling the mic in the Sound settings of Windows doesn't help, I have to physically unplug it. Audio output is handled by NVIDIA GPU's HDMI out. Suggestions?
  8. Guys! I need help! My motherboard's onboard USB 3.0 suddenly stops working after I openned and cleaned my PC. It was working before I cleaned it and it has not happened before. I normally clean my PC with canned air, that's it. But then when I start my PC USB 3.0 suddenly stops working, at least thats what I thought! The weird thing is, my keyboard and mouse still works, they're both USB 2 peripherals but they are connected to the onboard USB 3.0. And also front panel USB 3.0 works. Basically, everything works excepts onboard USB 3.0 Here's my full spec: OS: Windows 10 Digital Retail Version (Latest as of now) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Rev 1.1 CPU: i7 3770K (OCed) RAM: 32GB of Corsair Vengeance (CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10) Soundcard: SoundBlaster Recon 3D PCI-e GPU: ASUS GTX980 Strix Capture card: This piece of shit (http://amzn.to/2djTz7o) PSU: Corsair HX650 Mouse: Roccat Kone Pure Keyboard: Ducky Shine 3 I've attached the device manager and the device property.
  9. Making use of AMD on-board graphics

    Hello everyone! i have a huge question! Is there possible to uses for on-board graphics?" Even if you have a dedicated Graphics card. Is it possible to use the on-board like "a screen capture device" when recording and you're using the Higher end graphics to play high demanding titled games? My Computer specs (Excluding Higher end graphics card as i have not bought one yet) Processor(CPU or "APU"): AMD A10-7860K Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G MAX Processor Clock: 4.20 GHz On-board Graphics: AMD Radeon(TM) R7 Graphics On-board Graphics Memory: 1024MB (1GB) DDR3 On-board Graphics Clock: 1029MHz (1GHz) Motherboard: ASUS A88X-Pro System Memory(RAM): 16GB 4x4GB Kingston HyperX Fury Back DDR3 System Memory(RAM) Clock: 1600MHz (1.6GHz) Solid State Drive(SSD): PNY CS1311 SSD Capacity: 480GB Power Supply Unit(PSU): EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Edition 64-Bit
  10. Hello, recently my Logitech G35's have broken. I want to get the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 as a replacement, but I don't have a dedicated sound card or anything of the sort, just my Maximus Hero VI's SupremeFX. Would that be enough to get good sound out of the M-100? Or would would I really need a DAC / AMP / dedicated sound card for it to sound good?
  11. Hello, recently my dedicated GPU died a honourable battle, but since then I have been using my onboard graphics(ati radeon 3000 hd) until I save up the cash to buy a new one, which will take me a while. OK so, I am playing some games that are being able to support from the onboard gpu, mostly Dota 2, which works well at 720p on lowest settings, so there are no problems there. The problem is with another game called Dungeon Siege 2. The frames of this game skips a lot, and I mean a lot. The screen just freezes for a second at most and skips to the next frame in consideration. I have no idea on how to solve this problem. I tried to work on the lowest settings, and at the lowest resolution as well(800x640), but it will still skip frames. The funny thing is that if my character stands still and there isn't much movement, there are no skips at all. It gives a steady 30 fps even at 1080p. But when I start walking or move the camera angle, or get into a fight, the skipping begins as usual. Anyone have any idea on what I can do to solve this problem? And its only this game that shows any problems, some of the other games don't show frame skipping, but may drop fps if I increase the graphic quality. My rig currently has a fx 8350, Msi 720gm p21 fx, 8gb ram and currently using the onboard graphics ATI radeon 3000. Also, I'm having uncertainties, regarding entry level GPUs, would there be any significant different in the gameplay? Because until I can get a new card, I was thinking of getting a cheap one for the time being like the Geforce GT 210 or something similar along the lines. Its available quite cheap. I tried to look for any used graphic card in my city, but most of them are out of my budget.
  12. Hey guys! So I've decided I want to upgrade my audio solution, and I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Sennheiser game one / zero. So I wanted yours guys opinion on the following two questions. 1. Which one do you think is better? FYI, I have pretty a broad taste in music. I also plan to play games with it. 2. Should I get a sound card for either headset? I have the Asus maximus ranger VIII board with Supreme Fx 2015. (I've been looking at this Sound Blaster Audigy RX) Would that do the job? I am also open to other possible solutions, if you think this is a bad deal! Thank you ever so much!
  13. Sharp sound with onboard audio

    So i just got the SE315, the sound is great when its plugged in to my phone (Note 5) but when i connect it to my pc the sound is very sharp that it makes me uncomfortable listening to it. Is it because of the onboard audio on my pc? Do i have to buy an external dac/amp to solve this problem? Side note: I burned in the shure for 40 hrs and the sharp sound reduces but its still very sharp compared to when connecting to my phone. Also the connection setup on my pc is Rear 3.5mm port > Razer Blackwidow > Shure SE315 Does this affect the performance? Thanks
  14. Hey everyone! So here is the story; Preface: I am trying to upgrade my home network. I have bought 3 x Intel 4 port NIC's (Intel I350 -T4) to put one in the server (that I am currently building... interesting to say the least), and another 2 for each of the gaming rig's in the house. 1)a) So far I have no idea if SMB multi-channel is working as only one of the computers have more than 1 Ethernet Chord. 1)b) However, before I can delve into that problem I need to fix the issues I am having with the 4-port NIC itself: When using the 4-port NIC I cannot host a Teamspeak server that can be accessed via the Internet. I have forwarded ports correctly, and even went so far as to forward it for all the ip's on the 4-port NIC. No luck. It will only work through the onboard NIC for some reason... 2) SMB Multichannel: Once I figure out this problem above, I will make sure this is working and report back. (ie. This section will be updated) - [I can confirm that when using only the 4-port NIC I get traffic on all channels, but I won't know if its working properly until I have all the other computer having multiple Ethernet ports connected.] 3) Ultimate goals: I would like to have all local traffic being handled by the 4 port NIC's and the internet traffic handled by the onboard NIC's (Except maybe in the case of the server) If this is unachievable, then I would like to just run the 4-port NIC's in all rig's. With SMB multi-channel working, and still being able to host servers (like Teamspeak). I have a feeling there is a lot more going on here that is causing some of these problems, so I will do my best to give you guys all the information I can. And do my best to report back with suggestions I have tried. All and any help will be appreciated Regards, Jerim, of Australia PS: First time posting a topic here so please go easy on me Here are the Specs of each individual rig: Rig 1: CPU: i7 47770 @ 4.7 GHz RAM: 32 Gb (4 x 8Gb Cosair Dominator 1600Mhz) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97x Gaming G1 WIFI Black Edition SSD: (1Tb) Samsung 840 EVO NIC: Intel I350-T4 Graphics Card: 2 x Nvidia GTX 780 Rig 2: CPU: i5 6500 RAM: 16 Gb (2 x 8Gb G.Skill Ripjaws V Series - 2400Mhz) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3 SSD: (256 Gb) Samsung 850 EVO NIC: Intel I350-T4 Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 970 Server: CPU: 2 x Xeon E5-2670 @ 3.1 GHz RAM: 128 Gb (8 x 16Gb Samsung Server Mem) Motherboard: Intel Serverboard (Not sure of the exact motherboard, But it is from the SP or SC line-up (ill post when I know the exact one)) SSD: (2 x 256 Gb) Samsung 850 EVO NIC: Intel I350-T4
  15. (Before you read about the pricing and the availability...I'm from Hungary, so prices may vary) I often get asked to suggest a budget computer build for home use, and I usually suggest an AMD A4 based build (Usually the cheapest one available). When you read that you're like: OMG! One of the worst available processors right now... But it's actually not that bad. 2 cores/threats and an integrated graphics processor that's able to play 1080p. From the feedback I've got it's more than enough for home use. Where I live...You can buy an FM2+ A88X Asus Mobo for about 55$ and pair it with an AMD A4-4000 that costs 30$. If you put it together that's only about 85$. However I'm ALWAYS tempted when I see Integrated CPU motherboards... Such as the Asrock J1900M motherboard, with a 4 core Intel Celeron CPU clocked at 2GHZ onboard...For only around 65$. I know we lose CPU/APU upgradability with the Embedded CPU motherboard, but usually the buyer of such budget computer consider 4 cores a bit overkill already, seeing how they were fine with their E4300 s775 chips for so long. So, what do you say? Was I right suggesting the FM2+ socket mobo with an FM2 APU? Or maybe I should have told them to get that Asrock one?
  16. Well...yeah..

    Hello, my name is Blake. I am still running the onboard Intel HD 3000...I don't want something fancy or expensive. I don't really play many graphic intensive games. I just need something that will be better than the onboard graphics I am using now...
  17. I'm currently working on a build that requires a small form factor, and i've already purchased a lot of the parts (don't worry i'll be posting the build in the build log once i get everything i need). The system will fit into a small container with a lid. Right now the lid (when i go to close it) hits the VGA and DVI connector not allowing me to close it all the way. Is it possible to remove those video connectors w/o breaking the motherboard? Has anyone ever done this before?
  18. OK I know I JUST posted a question like this a couple of hours ago, but keep reading because I have another question about it (and a potential way to save money). SO I am planning to build a dedicated computer for [email protected] and I plan to reuse some old computer parts that I have laying around. One of the parts I am going to reuse is a GTX 750 ti. My original plan was to get a low-end H81 motherboard and a low-end intel celeron CPU and using the onboard graphics for video output and the GTX 750 ti for folding only (so it will not be connected to a display). I had talked to the forums about doing that and apparently intel allows you to do this with their products (have the onboard GPU for video and the dedicated GPU do something else at the same time). After doing the calculations for the total cost I found out that just the mobo and CPU would cost almost $100. I thought that was a little much considering this machine will be sitting in my basement for months doing nothing but fold proteins. After I was hit with this price I decided to scour ebay for some used parts and older last-gen hardware. After looking on ebay I found that you can buy VERY cheap AMD FM1 motherboards and CPUs for much cheaper than going with the intel solution. With intel I was gonna get this CPU: http://newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117301 And this motherboard: http://newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157450 All that would total to around $100. OR I could get this refurbished AMD motherboard on ebay: http://ebay.com/itm/MSI-A55M-P33-Socket-FM1-Micro-ATX-Motherboard-W-Onboard-VGA-DVI-Sata-6gb-2xDDR3-/221595257372?hash=item33981b4a1c:g:KYoAAOSw54xUWRXI And this AMD FM1 CPU: http://ebay.com/itm/NEW-AMD-Fusion-A4-3300-2-5-GHz-Dual-Core-Socket-FM1-Processor-/301837439209?hash=item4646e9d0e9:g:JHAAAOSwrklVUuNb And the whole thing would cost me $40 for the AMD build. That's a $60 savings over going with the intel build. Here is my question. Intel allows you to use the onboard video for display output and I can use the GTX 750 TI for folding only. Can AMDs FM1 platform do the same? Can I use the onboard video on the AMD APU for video output only and use the GTX 750 TI for folding like I could do with the intel build? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
  19. So I just completed an upgrade, and I want to sort my audio setup for the new year. My new mobo is the Asrock Z97 Extreme4 with its onboard Realtek ALC1150 chip. I have the rear audio jack to my speakers, and don't want a long wire running off the front of my case (front audio jack) for headphone. My monitor has an audio out for HDMI/DP audio from the graphics card, but it uses the AMD HD Audio Device driver. I know its just a digital audio passthrough. Anyone know how I can (if possible) have sound pass through it from my superior ALC1150 driver? I'm pretty sure the sound from my monitor isn't from the ALC1150, as no sounds are produced from the testing options in Realtek Audio Manager. If its not possible I will have to resort to using an audio jack splitter on the rear audio out. Thanks in advance.
  20. Monitors not displaying

    Hello i have a problem with my PC. I have just finished dusting it with a compressor like i always did but the first time since i have homemade water cooling. I plugged everything in and the monitors just dont work on my graphics connectors, one of them is on HDMI and the other on DVI. The monitors dont work only if i plug the DVI one to the motherboard onboard graphics. My PC components: Intel i3 3240 RADEON HD 6950 2gb ASUS H61M-K HyperX Fury 2x4gb i think that's all you need for this.. PLEASE HELP ME! Thanks and greetings from Slovenia!
  21. sound card good or bad

    Hi everyone, for many months i've been trying to buy a gaming headset now that the opportunity have arrived i discovered that many peple says that if you haven't a dedicated sound card you wouldn't be able to experience the full potencial of it and your voice would be match worse. So far i like the onbard audio of my mb (crystal sound2), and i wondered if even with that my experience with the gaming headphones will be bad? Some say that with a dedicated sound card both both internal (pcie) and external (usb) it would be much better. The headphones are Ozone rage st, kingston cloud core and if necessary a sound card, asus xonar u5.
  22. Hello guys! I had a problem with my On board audio a while ago, that it was not working. Touched the Audio chip on the motherboard and found that it was too hot, so that it was not working. It was not any driver issue or anything. Even I performed Clean Installation of Windows and Ubuntu. So it was the chip itself. I don't know how it happened. But then, I bought a PCI Audio card and it was working fine. After like 6 months (before few days), my motherboard started creating tons of problems like usb ports were not working, north bridge was too hot. So finally then, I had very old PC with Pentium D 820. So I used that PC for 2 or 3 days. Everything was working fine. Now all of a sudden onboard audio is not working again. Found same problem what I found on my previous PC. Audio chip was freaking hot. So I switched it off immediately. Both are OEM PCs. Both has a good PSU. Can't complain that. Both the PC was connected on a spike buster. And that power outlet is leading to main current and it's also powered by Home UPS/Inverter. The Inverter has certified Pure Sinewaves (found that it's good for PCs). What seems to be the problem? I know it's not any PSU problem. May be my main outlet doing something to the PC? Please help me out!
  23. Home theater/Headphones toggle question.

    Hi all, I'm totally in the dark here, please help me. I have the Asus ROG Maximus Gene VIII motherboard, that has a good sound card. I will connect my audio system to it, a Logitech z506 (5.1, audio jacks) And this is where my problem begins. I also have a pair of Sennheiser HD598 that I want to be able to connect to the motherboard (and not the audio jack the control satellite of the z506 has), in order to get the best sound and amp, and also be able to take advantage of all the features of the sound card in games. How could I do that, without having to unplug/plug everything, every time? Is it possible? Thanks, Alex.
  24. White noise from on-board audio

    Yesterday, out of nowhere, white noise started coming out of my headphones. I tried switching headphones, switching from the rear panel port to the front panel port, but still no change. I'm using an Asus H87-Plus motherboard. I didn't change anything about my setup recently. Could anyone help? -edit- all my drivers are updated
  25. I have the AMD A10-7870K (roughly 1GB of RAM dedicated to the GPU) and an Asus R7-250x-1GB that I would like to run in dual-graphics Okay so I have this problem that I'm not even sure is a problem lol. On my computer I do not see dual graphics in my bios, I do not see dual graphics in AMD Catalyst Control Center (CCC). Now here is where I think dual graphics is enabled but I don't exactly have those options in the BIOS or CCC. When I go into CCC it sees both cards but says that my R7-250x is disabled, but... GPU-Z is saying that the card is my primary card, even though I am plugged in through the onboard graphics. Now, when I go into Skyrim and use the hotkey to turn on MSI afterburner it starts off saying I am using about 89MB of system memory, but I am using 2.2 GB of GPU memory, and the performance is incredible. On high settings I'm getting 60FPS no overheats, no tearing, no stuttering, just smooth all out gameplay. When I was on high settings with just my onboard graphics I was just barely breaking 32FPS and when I was plugged directly into the graphics card at high settings I was settings I was getting about 42-45. Like I said then I plugged back into the onboard after I got tired of trying to enable dual-graphics and realized that I may actually be in dual-graphics and not even know it. Is there a way that I can definitely find out if dual-graphics is enabled even though it's telling me it's disabled? And before you ask, yes I have all the latest drivers and the most up to date UEFI.
