So, i went a little overboard with my new PC build and bought an Acer Predator XB271HU Monitor and a GTX 1080 :fearful:, initially was supposed to be a normal 1080p 60hz monitor + GTX 1060 6 GB. So you can imagine i am absolutely out of funds to buy a proper fast ram for my ryzen cpu, so i...

Hey! I have a strange issue with my new pc. The system works like it should, from the first boot forward, except theres a electric ticking coming from the PSU area. The sound is there even when the pc is turned off so its not a fan. Ive tried with 3 brand new power supplys and after a couple of...
In an ambition to refresh my gaming PC and hopefully make it quieter I did a rebuild 2 weeks ago. I have run into an issue that I am unable to resolve and are looking for recommendations on how to proceed further. As full background info, I should perhaps mention that the RAM on my old...

All the parts were compatible...
