Very odd. I wonder if there's a failing component on the board or a bad solder joint that simply flexing/moving/heating/cooling the board "fixes" or "breaks" it? When it's not working try warming different areas with a hair dryer to see if that makes it work or not. Some Asus boards had an issue with a bad resistor that worked when warm/hot but did not when cold, causing the boards to not work but then work fine later.

There is more flex in the mobo than Iíd like, I notice it when messing with connectors. There is one spot for a screw that isnít filled but the case doesnít provide a hole for a stand there. I had a similar thought but Iím just hoping it wonít appear again.

Memory issues manifest in strange ways.

If you want a new rig on the cheap, you can buy an older Z620 on amazon for about $600. Dual xeon procs, 32+gb RAM, generally a single SSD with Win10Pro, and can accept most graphics cards. The power supply even has the provisions to power a pair of graphics cards.

I bought one with 64gb of RAM, slapped in three 500GB SSDís in a RAID5 config, installed a GTX1660, and now I have a gaming rig/Workstation/Plex server for well under $1000.

Surprised to see you post. I wouldn’t know, this was my first build in 2015 and I haven’t really had to touch it since. MemTest didn’t show any errors and supposedly that’s the best test. :dunno: That setup sounds real fast, my rig could use a SSD as well but it boots and generally loads quick enough for me. I get to the desktop in aboot 10 seconds. Either way I'm sticking with this setup, I could barely afford to replace the PSU, much less something like the GPU if it bricks.

If youíve got extra RAM laying around, or can order a couple sticks on the cheap, Iíd swap them out. First thing I would check if it doesnít boot up is pull ALL the RAM out and boot it up. It should produce an annoying beep error. If that happens then you know the system will POST (Power On Self Test). Memory can foul up just about everything, so itís good to have a couple extra DIMMs laying around to eliminate variables such as the actual DIMM, or even a channel on the board.


SSD. Yes. Do it. Get something like the Crucial MX500 or Samsung EVO 860. SSDís have a finite lifespan in terms of data read/write, but itís into the hundreds of terabytes, so youíll be fine. The speed boost alone is worth the price of admission.

I love my WD Black M.2 SSD. Boots up my computer before I move my finger off of the power button after turning it on.

Hmm, that makes sense. Maybe they make dinky hand rotaries too. laugh.gif



They actually do. Typically on air and they're small enough for 1 to 3" pads.

Rotaries make quick work of hard clear coats (or rough wetsanding) that DAs can't touch, so it's nice to have one in your arsenal if you do a lot of detailing work.

So help me out here, going to try and get parts for building one on a budget of up to $1500 (PC alone) w/ Black Friday sales coming up.
One of my buddies stumbled upon PC part picker which I liked their build --> https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/Thwrxr/excel...streaming-build

Thoughts on this? Can it be better for the same price?

Goal of the build is to eventually do some VR; but for now the heaviest taxing game I would play is GTAV.

If youíre building anything to game, you should only be looking at i7ís. Iíd also look at a Corsair liquid cooler.

The SSD is a no name brand. Iíd stick to a Samsung EVO or Crucial MX.

Awesome. Though I whole heartedly plan on getting a NC Miata with decent paint so I don't have to mess with it.

Casey, I got that Reaper Salsa. I mixed it in with nacho cheese and it's still got a punch to it wooo. It's an effective decongestant.

You'll want to fix up any car you get lol. I just need to figure out what glass polish to get, get the real ceriglass or make my own from powder for a little cheaper or do both, get the ceriglass AND mix in some powder to make it cut faster/easier.

I’ve been happy with my i5, but I chose that four years ago and even then it wasn’t close to new. That setup should run GTA V at max settings, but for headroom and newer games I would do i7 as well.

I don’t have extra parts laying around, this was my only build and beside the PSU, haven’t had to replace anything, though I want to RMA the card. I never tried to start without any RAM at all, thanks for the suggestion. It was probably a fluke, maybe I made a mistake with the memory installation. I’m not sure if I connected the mobo speaker wire, don’t think I’ve ever heard it.

Also on a side note, apparently I’ve been mounting PSUs incorrectly. I always thought the fan should point up but that’s not the case (ha!).

Ooh, yes I already killed off my ghost pepper so I could use some reaper.

Yeah probably, but the less I have to do the better. More time to drive again. Though lately I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about going cheap on the replacement car and put the money towards stuff like cute clothes and obnoxiously expensive synthesizers. laugh.gif

But look at it!

That'd bring me way more happiness and enjoyment than an equally as expensive car ever could.

I mean I do like a good organ, electric or otherwise. RIP Jon Lord.
https://youtu.be/XFxyY_C9pho hey look a cover of electric organ on a non electric organ. Orgception!

Also I caved and bought another Griots vented backing plate, I never did find mine but since I bought a new one I'm sure I'll find it now! I think the cheaper one I bought has a wobble to it, the Griots is nicely vented and a little heavier but still flexible but in a nicer feeling way. Being vented it won't get hot and ruin pads, as if I could ever run it that hard lol.

Shame, losing lots of the old greats now... Ah yes. I like me some organ too, sadly you're limited to expensive digital ones, expensive analogue ones that're old and temperamental, or old analogue ones nobody wants because they're cheap and cheesy with small manuals. I want to play a cathedral pipe organ one of these days, like this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FHNLdHe8uxY

Organs are awesome instruments, so under rated and my goodness they can get LOW! Some of those low notes are earth shaking low and you really do need a sub to truly appreciate them.

Since organs are just a bunch of sine waves I've been able to emulate them with my SY77 FM synthesizer, since it'll let you do two groups of 6 sine waves if you want. Sine waves are only one harmonic frequency, which is why they're so bassy. Sub bass is usually pure sine and/or has sine as a sub oscillator. What's really fun to do is on the Bass Station II you can have 3 sine waves at different octaves, and you can make the filter self oscillate to make another sine and track it to the keyboard plus the filter boosts the bass harmonics while at it if you get the cutoff just right. Huge house rattling sound through a 15" woofer. laugh.gif
