#2162264 power supply 12volt drops

Posted by Braegnok on 13 November 2017 - 06:28 PM


Try confirming power supply is OK with a meter first,.. by measuring Voltage,..Figure 3.18  "Back probing the power supply connectors"  http://www.informit....31105&seqNum=12

I did the back probe a while ago on the 12 volt sata connector and it read fine so it may be another problem, I wonder is it possible the bios got wanky because if I bump the memory up to 1600 mhz (which it is rated at ) or xmp profile it also won't boot, goes into boot loop.



It's the +3.3v and +5v of power you want to check,.. first test pin-8 on the 24-pin ATX connector. If not within range,.. the system never sees the Power_Good signal and therefore does not start or run properly.

#2161856 Intel 8th Generation Core i7 8700K & Core i5 8400 Reviewed

Intel indicated the decision to eliminate Kaby Lake compatibility with Z370 was due, at least in part, to requests from motherboard vendors that the company make a "clean split."


For motherboard vendors, this removes the burden of adding support for Kaby Lake (and requisite validation) during a time when most motherboard vendors are already stretched to their engineering resource limits due to rapid fire Intel and AMD launches.


Rumor is Intel will have Z390 motherboards coming out in 2018,.. that support enhanced IA and memory overclocking, Thunderbolt 3.0 w/ DP 1.4,.. and perhaps eight-core processors.

#2161187 FLDC

Posted by Braegnok on 01 August 2017 - 05:31 PM

I have FLDC in Poloniex also, It's fine. And when you sell your FLDC on Poloniex, send BTC back to your Counterwallet it will be same as any other time.


I'm not going to worry about splitting my bitcoin. Will be sticking with Counterwallet & Poloniex,.. an just keep on riding the white pony.

You can add some grommet edging around cut edge and it will look good. http://www.performan...sive-black.html

#2159945 Water 3.0 Ultimate

Posted by Braegnok on 22 May 2017 - 02:10 AM

The 730T supports 360mm rad in top, but you will be into top drive bay.


A 360mm AIO cooler will be one of the best cooling solutions for 4790K,.. if it is adequate @ 5.0Ghz overclock depends on Vcore, ambient air temp, and CPU load,.. you will need to test and see what results you get. 


You will want to connect water pump as per instructions,.. most likely to 12V CPU fan header.


If you have Arctic MX-4 on hand,.. I would use it. Otherwise the pre-applied TP would be fine.

#2158600 Samsung Evo speeds

Posted by Braegnok on 13 February 2017 - 05:47 AM

road-runner,.. Write cache on Intel 750 Series drives does not work the same as SATA SSD's and it can't be configured by the user.


The 750 drives use NVMe technology with five RAM ICs on the drive for 2.5GB of on-board ram cache,.. and have Enhanced power-loss data protection built-in by design.


Basically with Intel 750 drives write caching using system RAM can't be enabled by the user,.. as is a feature for ATA devices (SATA SSD's), therefore, it is not available for NVMe drives.


So your good to go no worries about data loss,.. enjoy the blazing speed.  ;)
