  2. [SOLVED] Graphics card not being powered when using 24pin to 6pin adapter (among other issues)

    My power adapter (24 pin to 6 pin) does not want to work properly with my prebuilt HP computer (Compaq 6300 I believe). With that extra 6 pin cable that comes from the adapter the PSU starts straight away without me even pressing the start button on the computer. Then if I press the start...

    [SOLVED] RX 580 rejected undervolting? Then crashes.

    Long story short, I undervolted my RX 580, and it didn't go well. I followed a guide on YouTube and the creator, as well as everybody in the comments, seemed to have success from this guide. So I know it probably wasn't that. After undervolting, I launched Fortnite which is a game that I have...

    Question VERY unstable gpu usage in Fortnite with the RX580 4GB

    Hi, I have always had a bad stuttering problem in games. But the stuttering in Fortnite by far tops it all. I usually get around 100-80% gpu usage and every second it will drop down to 0. It's never at 100% for more than a second or two. My CPU usage is normally at around 50-70%. I'm really...

    Question Is this prebuilt PC a scam?

    So I was looking into buying a new PC since my current one is relatively outdated, and I came across what I thought was a good deal. The specs seemed good to me and I checked pcpartpicker to see if it was a good price for what was in it, and it still seemed like a good deal. It was on sale for...

    Question i5 2400 Low Power Draw (Dell Vostro 260)

    I recently purchased a Dell Vostro 260 from ebay with the intent of turning it into a cheap HTPC. However, even with all of the high performance settings enabled in windows, the CPU's power draw will never pass 45W. The TDP of the chip is 95W so is it power throttling? The temps have never...
