    Tomahawk B350 - Ez Dedug code(s)

    Built about 2 years ago, was running fine last night. The RAM light never goes on.

    Tomahawk B350 - Ez Dedug code(s)

    My daughter's machine will not boot, there are no beeps from the mobo but all the fans are working and I can hear the power in the various drives. The EZ Debug LED stops at the CPU light, but then, at the same time it flashes off and the VGA and BOOT lights flash on. This sequence repeats...

    Noise issue? Or normal?

    It's not electrical. Definately vibration as I can make it stop if I touch hold the PSU tight to case, and it doesn't take much at that.

    Noise issue? Or normal?

    So it appears that the annoying noise is from the PSU and how it sits or is secured to the case. Any tips or tricks to limit the vibration transfer?

    Noise issue? Or normal?

    Is there a windows utility that show BIOS like information? fan speed, cpu temp, gpu temp, etc? Edit: let me google that for you... MSI Afterburner, GPU-Z. Which do you prefer, or it doen't really matter as I'm not overclocking?

    Noise issue? Or normal?

    Is that normal though? My old build did not do that.

    Noise issue? Or normal?

    Just finished a new build (first one in mnay years) and everything is working great...I think/hope. Except I am wondering if its makes too much, or the wrong kind of noise. Here is the build: AMD Ryzen 5 2600x 3.6GHz Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite Motherboard EVGA SuperNova 650G1+ Gold PSU MSI...

    New build thoughts, especially on the video card?

    Update So I did pick up this video card. https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX69154 Now I'm trying to figure out a mother board. What should I be looking at/for when I am perusing the selection? And (as Memory Express seems to be trying their hardest to become the Consumer's...

    This is all good stuff. Thanks. Memory Express has this card: Radeon RX 570 Gaming 4GB PCI-E w/ DVI, HDMI, Triple DP on sale for $180. They are claiming it's "$220 off" but I'm not sure I really believe that. What do yous all think?

    Another SSD question... do they mount like a standard HDD? I.e. do I need a new case as the one I was going to use pre-dates SSDs.

    New build thoughts, especially on the video card?

    Kind of a dumb question then...what do you load on the SSD? Windows? Games? And then use your HDD for storage of photos, music, etc? Or to put it another way, do you run out space on the SSD?

    New build thoughts, especially on the video card?

    On the PSU. My machine runs almost constantly (torrents) so I am interested in a PSU thar claims 'energy efficiency' or the like. Thoughts? Like, is there such a thing? I'm also wondering...do I really need a SSD? This is new since my last build.
