  1. The heatsink is the NH-U12S, with an extra fan for push pull. I read that the Ryzen stock heatsinks are good enough and there is no much need for an extra heatsink.
  2. Thinking of getting a AMD Ryzen 5 2600X or AMD Ryzen 5 2600, and a B450M mobo. Now is this upgrade worth it? Using my current RAM and GPU? At least for a while? Might also get some RAM for a total of 250euro investment. I know my Noctua push pull heat sink is going to be wasted unless I try to sell it.
  3. Too much hassle to take my cpu to my brothers PC... Tried 1 ram stick, tried no ram (no beep codes) Cleared CMOS with the jumper and by removing battery and all. Found the Asrock 970 Pro3 R2.0 mobo for 70euro. If the CPU is not cooked, then I could use my RAM and CPU.... Could not find my CPU for purchase locally, so I hope it is the mobo. If I go for a new CPU and Mobo, then I will need new RAM and maybe GPU in the near future. Hard to find better than the Fx8350 on a budget EDIT: Any suggestions on a CPU and Mobo combo on a budget?
  4. Hi all, So I took apart the heat sink, and the cpu, cleaned them, added thermal paste, put it back together and no luck. So I guess I should get a new mobo. Just hope that fixes it, cause if the CPU is also cooked I will be wasting money. Should I go for a budget mobo cpu combo that fits my other specs and has better performance than my current build?
  5. It's slightly better than my current card. Even though mine is the boost over clocked one. Even this slight upgrade, is a free upgrade so why not go for it. If I resolve my issue with the Mobo and the PC starts, I will add this card instead.
  6. Would the Sapphire Dual-X R9 270X overclock edition be any better than my current card in my signature? I got it free from my brother and it is similar but maybe a newer chip.
  7. Hi, and thanks. I will take out my Noctua heatsink and cpu, clean it and add some paste and put it all together again. Hope this fixes it. I will try tomorrow. Hope my thermal paste is OK. Had it for a while.
  8. Happy new year to all. All the best for the new year. After trying my older PSU with no luck, I bought the Corsair TX650M Gold. Just tried it, no luck. I'm not a happy man.
  9. Is this PSU any good? Enermax Revolution X't II 80+ Gold 650W (ERX650AWT) Found it at a good price EDIT: So I order this Enermax Revolution X't II 80+ Gold 650W PSU. Cost me only 58 euro, and I thought it's good enough just in case something else is cooked in my system. EDIT: Going to cancel my order of the Enermax and get the Corsair TX-M Series TX650M or the TX550M. 550w should be enough
  10. I did reset CMOS, but the problem is that my brother had the same exact issue. Bought a new mobo and cpu ...same thing... bought a new PSU and problem solved. I guess I will have to dive in and get a new PSU
  11. Yes. I will take it apart, and clean it. Hook it back on.
  12. The thing is that my brother who has the exact same build, had the same problem and it was the PSU. I gave my PSU to someone I know who studied electronics and is good at it, and he tested it out. Told me it was faulty.
  13. Will try it out. This is the same problem I had with my previous PSU. I hope no other component like the Mobo got damaged.
  14. Could it be that this 520 psu can't handle my gpu? Hooked it all up, gpu fans spin for a second and that's that. Cpu red light is on on mobo. No boot, all chassis and cpu fans spinning. Any thoughts?
  15. Thanks I will try it. I could also check if anything else is faulty before I spend money for a new PSU
