    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST H100i RGB not discovered, wiring?

    Hi All Got my new machine, all working great except that the AIO is not being recognised by iCUE, I am getting a Rainbow wave on the fans and the pump but I cannot control them, mobo, ram, keyboard etc is picked up ok. It's not the end of the world but when the rest of the lighting in the case...

    Hi all New pc is finally dispatched and arriving tomorrow! Thanks for the help and advice on my spec. Particularly @Nursemorph & @AgentCooper Was concerned i should have switched to a 6800 but hopefully won't be disappointed with 3070. Was surprised (and slightly concerned) how quickly it...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC hanging but not during gaming???

    @Nursemorph & @ubuysa that's the thing, I've worked in Software for 15 years, Norton will struggle to shake off their old rep and rightly so; their software historically was criminally resource hungry, but their new products are much better and slowly being recognised. P.s. I don't work for...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC hanging but not during gaming???

    Thanks all, definitely will try it without 3rd party AV, and will be doing a clean install. Not sure i would drop Norton tbh, and Norton results for 360 are very good.

    No was running AVG, recently using Norton, new products are very good and I get them free through work. been happening with either installed so doubt it’s AV related.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC hanging but not during gaming???

    Hi Bit of an odd one, for the past year my PC has been intermittently hanging but doesn't seem to happen when gaming, I can play WoW for hours with no issues then when browsing it will hang, sometimes happens within minutes sometimes will last an hour. I often turn on WoW and alt-tab to browse...

    Never had rgb in the past but fancy it this time, but RGB on the CPU, RAM and case fans, is a light strip overkill? dont want a night club in the case, just some nice lighting

    ok thanks @Nursemorph , I'll stick with the H500, re. the cooler if the frostflow is going to be similar performance and noise i'll prob go for the frostflow. Reviews online for the Coolermaster suggest it can be quite noisy. Very tempted by the CORSAIR H100X /W QUIET FANS but quite expensive.

    H100i admittedly very good but seems a tad overkill and was hoping to not drop 100 on a cooler if i didnt have to. How does the PCS frostflow 240 compare in performance and volume? Also considering switching the COOLERMASTER MASTERCASE H500 for the NZXT H511, any suggestions on which is better...

    Hi All Might be a bit soon for this but wondering if you have any suggestions regarding the CPU cooler for the 5600X and is 650w enough? this is the current spec, which will be swapped for 3070 & 5600X. https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/saved-configurations/amd-am4-gen3-pc/yQhyrGhxaE/ praying...
