    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Saved Myself From a Costly Mistake!

    The components that are overspecced aren't going to magically make it more futureproof, they're just not going to be used, it's literally throwing money down the drain. We can advise on a spec for £1500 that would actually perform better for your uses, just to give you some idea of how much...

    The H115i Platinum would be the one to go for, it’s a newer model with a greatly improved pump and has ML fans (magnetic levitation) that are whisper quiet. Excellent cooler. The iCue fans run quite loud, wouldnt recommend that case. The Lian Li is a very capable case. I also wouldn’t recommend...

    You've done all the right things, well done. I'd raise it with PCS and give them a link to this post to show them the steps we've taken and the readings. If you're feeling flush, you could just buy a replacement Power Brick from PCS (go to the upgrades section when logged into your main account...

    Yeah, that’s quite an important setting that you need on this chassis, if you explain it to PCS they’ll be able to help out.

    I'd contact PCS, it's likely you'll need a BIOS upgrade, but you need to do that with their oversight to keep warranty intact.

    Hmmm... I'm a bit out of my depth on this one. I think there's a couple of possiblities: 1/. The PSU brick is flaking out when full power load is being requested. 2/. There is a hardware issue with the GPU that's only triggered under full load. Are you able to send to PCS? They'll be able to...

    Ok, that's really weird. Can you run furmark one last time and record CPU temps? There's a power limit flag and temperature limit flag raised so I'm missing something somewhere, but those GPU temps are perfectly healthy also. It's It's possible the PSU is flaking out when it's under extreme...

    I would take this one over the IIYAMA, the IIYAMA is a budget option, but can't match this one which has full HDR10 which is usually only found on extremely premium monitors...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Could someone build me a pc ?

    You don’t want to lower the PSU, it’s not giving a warning when you proceed it’s just giving a notification that your build uses less power, the increased PSU is to allow for future upgrades. 450 will limit you hugely in the future.

    Ok, so your CPU is not the issue, it is pointing to the GPU possibly. Lets do the same thing but with furmark which is a gpu torture test... I'll get the right link this time ;) So this time, just need to monitor the GPU load and temperatures, can you also snapshot the SSD and RAM temps...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC Glass steaming up?

    It would suggest there's a heat source by that spot that's causing it, just need to verify which one?
