    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Noisy Fan

    Thanks, no they've not asked for it, just like to provide evidence where possible. I work as a developer and it's one thing our software support guys never seem to get from our clients so we're taking longer on tickets by returning them and asking them to go back to clients for more info. I'll...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Noisy Fan

    I've sent tech support a report about a rear noisy fan I have in my case "CORSAIR OBSIDIAN SERIES™ 750D FULL TOWER CASE". It starts about 15 seconds after turning on, I know it's not the GPU as the fans for that don't start up until I'm gaming. It's not the CPU / AOI Cooler or the front two...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Slight burning smell - from new 3080 GPU

    It's been running a couple of hours now same temps and the smell seems to have gone. I'll open it up in the morning before turning it on and double check the cables, but they are quite tidy. I only had to put in the extra power one as it required two 8pins (not the extensions) and that is all...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 1 year old pc won’t turn on just keeps restarting

    Saw it, thanks. That doesn't look good, I see the back fan spinning up, are the actual AIO fans doing the same? If not check that the wire hasn't come loose.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Slight burning smell - from new 3080 GPU

    Thanks guys. Since Lockdown March (2020) I've been working from home and rarely go out now. I don't think I've had covid, but not really been tested for it, though I do feel a bit "under the weather" at the moment. Hate to have anything wrong with the PC now, since I'm off for 2 weeks, so will...

    Are you getting any beeps in the start up process? How many? How far does it get before restarting. A video might be helpful.

    I bought the PC below back in Jan 2021 but without the GPU (had a 1080) I finally got a GPU 3080 (Gigabyte) from PCS a couple weeks ago and now I'm off work started to play some games to make use of it :) Currently playing AC Origins and my temps for CPU / GPU are both around 64-66'c...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Thoughts on this what looks to be a loose cable?

    Just hope you DON'T get ALL those beeps -- just ONE will do, if you get more, you need to count them and look up what multiple beeps means. More than one suggests some issue with the bootup.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Gaming pc advice for 11 year old

    As the other have said, PC prices are high at the moment. The other thing to consider is what sort of games will your son play, the latest AAA shootem ups with top notch graphics, or the lower end "puzzle" type ones, for the graphical games you're probably looking at 1500-2000+ budget range at...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Which Browser?

    Did you use good ole wireshark for the looking at the traffic? That IP address is "update.vivaldi.com" so I guess it's sending info to check if any updates are required. I often get prompted when a new update is available. I don't think it's much more than this. It's using port 443 so it's...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RTX 3080

    If you do this, then what are you going to use instead of the GPU. Also you warranty would start on the day you get sent the PC, Unless you need it or have an alternative GPU I'd wait.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Which Browser?

    Just like @ubuysa I use the Vivaldi browser, I use the syncing ability and use it at work too so it syncs the bookmarks etc at work, along with some extensions I use. My alternative is Edge, but rare use of that now. My work pc has all 3 main browsers on it as I do web developing and need to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Low FPS in games 6800XT

    Hmm, 140 fps sounds a very rounded number especially for a 1080 monitor. just to rule it out, put the game on the lowest settings possible and see if 140 is still max, if so, then maybe it might be something like v-sync or something. I don't use AMD so not sure if there is any external setting...
