    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    I think the intermittent crashing was just a random off thing that happend a few times. Because like I said above, I have put about 6hrs into PUBG and it did not give me that brief blank screen again. So I am sure it is all good. Anyways thanks everyone for their support here.

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    I don't think it is morally wrong at all! If we pay $4K AU for a GPU, I expect it to be easy to slot in. I tried 2 different PCIe cards, one is a massive GPU, the other was a relatively tiny Hyper M.2 card. Both was a nightmare to get into this board, and this is the first MB I have ever come...

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    OK I think all is good. I just ran CINEBENCH (multicore) and Superposition 4K optimized @ 5120x1440p and they both ran well, no issues observed. So I am guessing no damage has been caused to my components?

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Like i said I finally got it in, it was very painful process. But now I am concerned about this intermittent brief blanking of the screen that has occured randomly. It happens on my new Z690, twice in about 3 hrs. It happend on my old Z390 system, about 3 times in about 2 hrs. This all occured...

    Transferring W11 to new PC

    Ok, using the key I obtained with cmd promts or powershell did not let me activate windows11 using the methods in guides above. I used the key I originally had way back, found on my cd cover when I bought W8.1 many years ago. So it still let me activate W11 with it.

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Ok so i didnt realise i had another pcie card, the hyper m.2 card that comes with this MB. Tried this one, and what do you know, same issue, very tough to place into the pcie slot. But i managed to place it in, by lots of wiggling and not heaps of direct force, just kept wiggling it in. I...

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    I am unsure if I did this wrong or what, but I have had extreme difficulty putting my EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra, into the top PCIe slot of a Z690 Asus STRIX-e motherboard. I was literally applying almost my whole body weight to push the card into the slot, but it was not going fully seated in. I...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    They really need to make a 38" Ultrawide 21:9 size monitor like the LG38GL950, but with a min. HDR1000, and OLED/miniLED tech. Enough of the standard sizes thats been done countless times. The 38" ultrawide was the sweetspot imo

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Wonder what the peak brightness will be on one of these 42" oled? I went from a CX48, to a Neo G9 and loved the increased immersive horizontal real estate, and better brightness compared to the CX48. Contrary to all the mixed view on the Neo G9, I really love mine. But I wouldn't mind gaining...

    EK 360 ELITE AIO swap to Lian Li UNI 120fans

    EDIT: I think I found the answer, looks like I need the LianLi ARGB Cable kit to be able to connect the D-RGB cable of the fans directly to the D-RGB header on the MB.

    EK 360 ELITE AIO swap to Lian Li UNI 120fans

    Need help with a situation. My goal is to use the Lian Li UNI 3x fans to cool the EK 360 Elite AIO rad instead of the provided EK Vadar 120 fans for that AIO. My confusion here is, if I use the EK Vadar fans and the EK fan HUB that is included with this AIO, the EK HUB only has 2 cables to...

    Are there any lower profile 120mm fans that I could place uptop to obtain the clearance needed? I only need maybe 1-2mm more clearance, it almost fits in as is. EDIT: OK just found slim 120mm fans, all good. Will need these. Now just gotta check out some reviews if they are anygood.

    New Samsung Odyssey G9 with MiniLED announced

    I have a feeling this monitor was just not tested at all after finishing the R&D and manufacturing of it. I get this feeling they said, just push it to the market and we will fix it later through firmware.

    Please check my proposed water setup.

    Well EK just told me the FTW3 Water block will not fit in the O11 XL Dynamic case in horizontal position. The water block is too big and I would not be able to put the side panel on :(

    Please check my proposed water setup.

    Would anyone be able to look at my build and the EK parts chosen and to verify if you think this would all be compatible and feasible for my build. And if you can suggest anything else to purchase for improvement or reliability, please do so. My current system I already own is: EVGA SuperNova...
