#2814 PC Build Thread in Hardware

You could afford a 1050 Ti.

Well no one is going to leave a review "the mobo was not DOA". DOAs happen.

#2812 PC Build Thread in Hardware
smesishould i worry at all about the bad reviews of the mobo in newegg

Do you mean those complaining about the VGA and HDMI output not working with a CPU without an iGPU, those who can't change the BIOS settings because they don't know which key to press or those complaining that motherboards manufactured before the 2400G was released don't have a BIOS version installed that supports while refusing to update it themselves?

smesialso other things i've thought before posting that, i was thinking of getting the ryzen 1600 (non x) but i don't think the extra cores and threads would do that much to tf2 so i went for the 1500x / 2400g

Yes. Not sure what 2xxx will bring but the 1500X might drop in price or there might be a higher clocked CPU at the same price.

smesithe reason why i gravitated toward the 2400g is because of the igpu, so idk if the 2600 would be interesting to me assuming that, like you said, i wouldnt have a igpu

Depends on the price obviously and it's only interesting because you can afford a discrete GPU.

smesiif i ever want to make upgrades and buy a GPU, it would prob be around christmas, so by then the gpu prices would be a bit better right?

Hopefully yes, unless mining bullshit happens again.

smesii guess i could ask about GPUs while i'm here, so i'm not really interested about anything above 1080p, also iirc tf2 is a very cpu-dependent game so i dont think getting a good gpu would matter here but, like i said, it would give me the opportunity to play other games in the future when i burn out (which will most likely happen at one point)

Yes, what exactly is the question you are trying to ask?

Mini ITX is usually more trouble than it's worth.
Micro ATX with 4 RAM slots, so you can just add 2x4GB instead of having to buy 2x8GB and not being able to use the old RAM anymore, B350 so you can overclock later should you change your mind (also A320 is low end).
You could afford 16GB if you wanted it, but RAM prices should drop later this year so better to wait and only upgrade should you have to.
I'd add an SSD.
You could afford a CPU if you wanted.

You'll have to update the BIOS somehow to get the 2400G to run though. An X470 would be more expensive and B450 won't be released until later this year.
On that note not only X470 is coming (April iirc) but also the rest of the Ryzen 2xxx lineup. No iGPUs but the 2600 or something like that might be interesting regardless. Or simply the 1500X if it drops in price. Since you could afford a GPU it would be an option. Depends on when you want to buy it.

2400G + updating the BIOS somehow is fine too though.

Dress code.
No fun allowed.

EDIT: Just in case you didn't know: Blizzard tried to permaban everyone in twitch chat who used the TriHard emote because they decided that using it is now considered racism. They eventually gave up.

Neither, wait and see.
If B360/H370 mobos become available get that and an i3-8100 instead, cheaper and as fast as the i5-7500.
If the 2400G becomes available get that, same price as the 1400 but faster and with an iGPU.

Only if both or neither become available then you have to choose.
Otherwise it's obvious. 7500/8100/2400G are faster than the 1400 but the 7500 is more expensive.
With a B360/H370 mobo the 8100 is cheaper than the 7500 and faster than the 1400 (same price). No reason to get the 1400 anymore.
Same reason with the 2400G. Cheaper than the 7500 and faster than the 1400.

Also it doesn't matter if some people aren't ok with AMD, unless you're one of those people.

EDIT: The 2400G is available you just can't select it because no mobos are available yet. The B350 mobo would work but you'd have to somehow update the BIOS.
Also it's 30€ more expensive than the 1400 atm.
Just wait and see.

#2803 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Yes as in you want to overclock or as in you're willing to do it?

You can't really afford Coffe Lake + overclocking so your options are Kaby Lake (7xxx) and no overclocking, Coffee Lake and no overlocking if B/H mobos show up in time or AMD Ryzen and overclocking.

An i3-8100 + B/H mobo or Ryzen 2xxx (e.g. 2400G) are going to be cheaper/better at the same price so if you're lucky those will show up in time.
Also don't get a mobo with only 2 RAM slots when you're already going with only 8GB to stay within budget. You'll regret it when you want to ugprade. I'd also get an SSD.

The clip becomes so much better once you realize that he was disguised as SPY and that they get backcapped immediately afterwards. Truly high level gamesense at work.

#29 Help with a new computer in Hardware

So the end result is if you had just done the reset properly the first time and then booted without any hard drives you could've been done 4 days ago.

Either your drive is fucked or your cable is fucked or you're plugging in the cables wrong either not making proper contact or fucking them up completely in the process.

EDIT: He added me and apparently it works now. Following instructions and plugging in hard drives properly can be difficult sometimes.

#27 Help with a new computer in Hardware

Ok, assuming you unplugged the power before removing the battery you've done a proper reset now.

Ideally you should've tested the RAM after the reset but before the reset any combination of slot and stick you tried still gave you the same A2 error, right?
Again, ideally you'd want to do this after the reset and with no hard drives connected, but let's assume you did it correctly if you're not willing to do it again.

The options left are:
1. CPU is fucked and the mobo isn't giving you the right error code for some reason.
2. All RAM sticks and/or all slots are dead and the mobo isn't giving you the right error code.
Both of these do seem unlikely because the error codes seemed to work for everything else. Of course this might change after the reset, which is why you should've done that first (that's why ASRock tells you to do exactly that in the error code FAQ).
Anyway last option:
3. Your mobo is fucked.

If you've got access to another mobo with DDR4 you can check the RAM. If you can somehow get access to another Z370 mobo you could even test CPU.
My money is on the mobo though.

knsumey'know, i've always wondered why setsul always seems a bit annoyed when he answers tech questions

now i know

Tech support in written form is always challenging because most of those problems only exist because people failed to read written instructions so trying to solve them by writing instructions for them might not have the best success rate.

At this point I always seem annoyed even if I'm not because it leads to more people following the instructions to the letter, which leads to less annyoance for me.

#22 Help with a new computer in Hardware

It does the same as the jumper but you still can't read.

Jesus fucking Christ do I have to write "remove the battery" again in caps before you just fucking remove the fucking battery. Is it really that hard to read?

If you still manage to fuck it up then I'll just give up.

#20 Help with a new computer in Hardware
funhaver1998if its not gettin the ram missing error doesnt this mean there is ram detected mr setsul? >_>

And that tells you that you did install RAM. Didn't you know that before? What are you trying to figure out?

funhaver1998theres a cmos button on my io shield that apparently has the same effect as doing the whole jumper thing.

It doesn't.
Even if it did it would have to be connected correctly. You're worried about not even having seated the RAM and CPU correctly, so why would you be sure about this?

funhaver1998wat im trying to say is if having the cpu plugged in is producing a result, it means the cpu is being detected and the same with ram.

ok let me explain my logic like this

no cpu plug =errr 00 which would be the code if i didnt install the cpu correctly, right? but if i did install it correctly, i would not get 00 code. with it plugged in, i dont get 00 so that means the cpu is being detected

same with ram. if my ram sticks were in physically and i got the 53 code, it would mean my ram is fucked because its physically in but not being picked up. in this case, having them physically in is making the first code, A2, so that means that theres a difference between having them in or not, meaning that the motherboard is picking up the RAM

but then again this is my first build and the only logic im going by is common sense and ur obviously Setsul, the computer guy

anyone get what i mean or is that just not how computer components work
PLZ help me T_T

And now you know that you did install the RAM and CPU. Weren't you sure before?

Just do a proper CMOS reset by removing the battery.
It literally says in case of error A2 clear the CMOS. Instead you're doing a shit ton of completely unrelated stuff.
Manuals don't work if you don't follow the instructions.
The point of error codes is not to produce as many different ones as you can.
