    PSU Kicking Off Circuit Breaker - Replace PSU?

    Thanks everyone. I ended up calling the maintenance people again and they did me a favor and replaced the one GFCI Breaker in the panel for the office with a new one. Issue has been resolved. However, I was just looking at it yesterday and realized it is a 20A GFCI breaker, before it was a 15A...

    Edge Router X Replacement

    You selling the ER-X? Is it stable overall? Was the upgrade to the ER-12 worth it in terms of performance? Thanks!

    PSU Kicking Off Circuit Breaker - Replace PSU?

    Understood. I can't wait to own my own place someday and do the same! Are your PSU reviews tested on 15A or 20A? I was just able to order a Corsair RMx 750 which should be back in stock and shipped end of next week. Figured I would try a different brand and lower wattage to see if that helps...

    PSU Kicking Off Circuit Breaker - Replace PSU?

    Do you also think a new PSU might fix it or should I push the building management to see if they can replace the breaker for the bedroom? At this point seems easier to replace PSU, if does not fix it I can just return it and since it's 7-8 years old and has been always on all that time thinking...

    PSU Kicking Off Circuit Breaker - Replace PSU?

    Wow, thank you for the response! I really appreciate it. Sadly, I don't know a single soul out here and closet friend is 2 hours away. I do know the kitchen, which is on 20 amps has a outlet with those test/reset buttons in the middle. Should I try testing the computer on that outlet or would...

    PSU Kicking Off Circuit Breaker - Replace PSU?

    Hello [H], I just moved to an apartment (built in the early 2000's) and having the strangest issue ever. Within 1-2 seconds of pushing the power button on my desktop, the circuit breaker kicks off and cuts power to the entire room. I then have to go to the circuit breaker and reset it. For...

    What Paste Application Method do You Use in 2020?

    Thanks! I am building a 3700x rig tomorrow, first time AMD since Athlon XP days. Going to try X method. I’m sorry but what a terrible video. Look how sloppy he puts the thermal paste and writes a note to do it better, he could have easily done it better since he already did it over 100 times...

    Arctic Freezer 34 eSports + Asus X570-Plus?

    Does the Arctic Freezer 34 eSports fit properly with the Asus X570-Plus? I know at least that the cooler will fit fine in my Fractal Design R4 and my Crucial 3600 Cl16 kit (https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr4/bl2k8g36c16u4b) which has smaller heatsink. Thanks!

    Best Brand These Days?

    I've heard about coil wine, which can be an issue on another item I have been eyeing which is the, Lenovo Y27q-20, the top 27" 1440P 144Hz screen. Going to hold off for a sale maybe towards the holidays but until then hope I don't run into it. Is it a high pitched whine or more subtle? i want a...

    Worth Upgrading the Fractal Design R4?

    Hello [H], I have started researching as I plan to upgrade my trusty old i7 2700k (from 2012) to most likely an AMD 3700x. It appears that newer CPU's really benefit from being cool to reduce throttling. The only heavy duty task will be gaming, 1440P @ 144Hz. Otherwise I browse the web and...

    Are there any technical advantages to the new type-C front panel connector standard?

    Oh wow, good to know. If I upgrade to a new mobo, can I use my old cases USB 3.1 Gen 2 header for the front USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 to use as USB 3.0? Meaning is it backwards compatible?

    Best Brand These Days?

    Oh wow, did not know B550 is around the corner. I will wait a bit then. Maybe pick up some RAM if there is a good deal on the low CL stuff. Yeah, seems everyone swears by MSI for AMD.

    Best Brand These Days?

    Hello [H]! I have been contemplating about finally upgrading my i7 2700k rig, honestly it has been perfect for my needs up until now due to the fact of jumping into gaming again after a decade. After much research, I have settled on the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 for the CPU which was a pretty easy...

    Which X570 to buy ~$200?

    Wow, had no idea about the Intel NIC's. Thanks so much. In all honesty, over the years have had Realtek and Intel Gbit NIC's and never any issues that I could tell.
