    Question GPU both mounting holes were stripped out and now screws won't tighten

    I stripped out the mounting holes of my case and now the screws can't tighten my GPU in place, they still hold it in though just not tight enough. I have a few questions about this: Is it safe to leave it like this without doing any damage to the GPU or the PCIe slot? If not, will leaving my...
  2. [SOLVED] IRQ conflict between RTX and SoundBlaster

    I've noticed my RTX 2060 and my SoundBlaster Z are sharing the same IRQ (16), and when I run LatencyMon sometimes it tells me my PC is not suitable for realtime audio and video, but my build has a Core i7 11700 and 32GB of Corsair RAM. I can't access the pcie x1 slot due to the pcie m.2_2...

    [SOLVED] Is now a good time to upgrade my CPU?

    First, I live in Argentina, so US prices and stocks don’t really apply here. This is my current set up: an I5 4460, 16gb ddr3 RAM, and a 2060 GPU. For a while now, I’ve been thinking of upgrading to a 10th gen Intel CPU, as Ryzen prices and availability here are a joke. However, now 11th gen is...

    Question recommendation for PCIe USB Type C for Front Header Type C Case ?

    I want to use the USB type C from my Case Front Header for the long term and don't want to regret buying a cheap PCI-e USB Type C connector. I don't mind if it is a bit pricy, as long as it has good quality. do you have a recommendation for this?

    Question My PC crashes all the time... Can it be the CPU's PCIe controller?

    Hello! (again) On the next chapter of my cursed PC saga, I think I finally linked all the evidence in my head to one possible conclusion. Sometimes, on boot, my motherboards lights (it's an MSI X570 tomahawk wifi) indicate a bad GPU and is stuck there until I shut it off and hopefully it works...

    Question What is the meaning of this yellow light inside my tower?

    What is the meaning of this yellow light inside my computer's tower? View: https://i.imgur.com/tzF3wEp.png It is blinking constantly and it's basically been there since I got the computer. It blinks slowly though. Is it maybe related to a WIFI PCIe card or something?

    Question GPU not working and not recognized in PCIE slot...

    I have the MSI 100ME GTX960 2gb card but it's not working for a while. It just gives black screen with no signal error. It can't boot to windows. The fans and leds are working, but the GPU isn't heating up at all. I tested it with a secondary card (a GT1030) and the bios says there's no card in...

    Question PCIe Switches for CPU and GPU ?

    I would like to build a system that is able to test different combinations of CPU and GPU hardware without needing to be physically reconfigured. For example, say I have CPU A, and CPU B; and I have GPU X, and GPU Y. I need some type of PCIe switch to connect the devices. This would enable the...

    Question Asus Hyper M.2 x16 drives showing up in BIOS but not Disk Management or Device Manager

    So today I just finally Upgraded to a new graphics card. It ended up not fitting, so I had to disassemble it and reassemble it in a new, larger, PC case. The ONLY part that changed was the graphics card. However, now that I put everything back together the two NvMe harddrives I had installed in...

    Question Missing PCI-E cable to power GPU

    I just got ahold of a hold of a GTX 1080 with an 8 pin and 6 pin PCI-E connector. My old graphics card only had an 8 pin connector, and I do not have any extra PCI-E cables. Would a Y splitter be a good solution? or should I get another 6+2 PCI-E cable? In that case can anyone help me find extra...

    [SOLVED] pcie 3.0 card in a pcie 4.0 slot

    so I'm putting in a pcie 3.0 x16 card into a slot that is physically x16 but the motherboard says it will only run pcie 4.0 x8. I don't have a good understanding on pcie which is why I'm asking this. They are theoretically the same speeds (1Gb per lane of 3.0 x16 = 2Gb per lane of 4.0 x8). Will...

    Question Need help with running a kinda dual GPU support.

    The title is in poor taste. I will explain elaborately. I am running a 8700K on a ASUS Z270X Prime A-II, the board offers two PCIe slots for Dual GPU/SLI/NVLink setups. I hooked up a 1650 Super on the first slot, the second slot as of now is empty. What I wish to do is to throw my 1060 on the...

    Question GPU being finnicky - possibly messed up PCIE slot but not sure

    Okay so this all started with the fans on my current GPU crapping out. Not entirely dead, but failing and making a lot of noise. I eventually settled on replacing it with my previous card for the time being while I wait on XFX support, but now I'm facing the issue of it just crashing. I'm not...

    So for the past couple of months now I've been getting sporadic black horizontal lines and sometimes just no image on two of my monitors. They are both connected with displayport to vga cables, and my other is connected with just hdmi. At first I thought it was just an adapter issue, and so I...
