    nothing to see here

    Tracking by the way which I sent him: 1Z630X170367206698 You're why many honest traders just gave up instead of dealing with people who don't care about ruining a person's reputation over nothing. I'd understand if I hadn't told you exactly what was going on,when, and why.

    Seriously? It's been two business days. I explained fairly clearly that the UPS office where I usually take shipments is closed I had to do it online and wait for them to pick it up.

    8+4 EPS: Last 4 pins of PCI-E cable fit, but is it safe?

    Thanks. EPS is standardized then? Any ATX-EPS cable on, say Amazon, will work?

    8+4 EPS: Last 4 pins of PCI-E cable fit, but is it safe?

    I don't know if my PSU(HX1000i) came with two 4+4 cables and I lost one or it was always just one, but until now I haven't needed both. I found that four pins on a pcie cable fit perfectly in the 4-pin connector, but is it safe to use? It's irrelevant whether or not the extra EPS connector is...

    Massive performance reduction since installing an ASRock Z390 Taichi.

    I've been experiencing stutters, frame drops, and all around sluggishness in games and general OS tasks since switching to this ASRock board. I have tried everything I can think of including countless combinations of BIOS settings and a complete format and reinstall. Even while writing this the...

    Ryzen 9 3900X or 3950X - $399.99 or $687.99 from Newegg on eBay

    I hope at least a few people who will actually use the CPU got one before resellers bought them out.

    Mech keyboard with at least 12 macro keys?

    I have my hotbars set up to match the hotkey positions and I don't trust my brain enough to learn another layout: Thanks for the replies. During my extensive search for a solution I noticed that many of the people reporting the issue were using an ASRock Z390 TaiChi. Strangely, it's simpler...

    Mech keyboard with at least 12 macro keys?

    Is there a currently available keyboard with a separate macro pad similar to the K95? I upgraded some hardware and now CUE/iCUE causes mass system stutters and unstable FPS in games. Exiting cue clears up all issues. I can find no solution, but I need the 18 macro keys or the MMO I enjoy would...

    I think I am going to cry

    This no-stock and price gouge situation almost makes me want to check out a Best Buy B&M. Almost.

    Can a motherboard take out memory when its RAM slots fail?

    Had an MSI board die, the cause of which turned out to be the simultaneous death of all four RAM slots. Just got a new board and now only two of my DIMMs work. Was this a astronomically unlikely coincidence or did the MSI board kill my RAM?

    Power but no POST. CPU or motherboard?

    Got a new board and was horrified when it also failed to boot. Found out it's because now two of my DIMMs are dead. Can a motherboard take memory out with it when the RAM slots die?

    Power but no POST. CPU or motherboard?

    8700K MSI Z370 Gaming M7 Happened out of nowhere yesterday, board lights up and powers headers but no video - integrated or discrete - and displays 00 (not D0) and the DRAM debug LED is lit despite memory testing fine in other systems and trying all slots and combinations on this board. I spent...

    Together or separately. Looking for a 3700x or better and X570 chipset only. Have a few things to trade if desired: 8700K 5700 XT with Morpheus II cooler
