Community Article Asus ProArt PA278QV does not turn off — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion Asus ProArt PA278QV does not turn off ZaneS ✭ March 6 in General Discussion I have two new ProArts connected to my new B745 with a GeForce GTX1660 graphics card. The 1660 has one display port and one HDMI and so I have one monitor on each. My power settings are to turn off the monitors after 30 min. The HDMI connected one will fully go into standby with the monitor power light going amber. The display port connected one will go black but remains actually powered on, no amber power light. No clue if this is a graphics card, Windows or monitor issue. All settings between the monitors are identical that I can tell. Anybody ever heard of such a thing? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin March 6 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7822/asus-proart-pa278qv-does-not-turn-off Hello. Can you exchange your cable connections between monitors? I would start with that for troubleshooting. That would be the easiest way to start narrowing down the issue. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 13 Thanks for the response. I switched the cables and exact same response. It works fine if connected via DVI or HDMI, but not DisplayPort. I reached out to Asus tech support and have an open ticket with them. They've been fairly useless for far. They did send me a spreadsheet to fill out for further info gathering. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 14 @ZaneS just chiming in. Have you tried to update your graphic card drivers? If not, try that. Also the B745 has a MSI Z490 board in it. Try updating the motherboard chipset drivers as well. See link below. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/MPG-Z490-GAMING-PLUS#down-driver&Win10%2064 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 21 edited March 21 After working with ASUS to no avail I've been working with NVidia tech support. It seems that the 1660 is the culprit. If I disconnect the HDMI connection, the DP will successfully power off the DP monitor. If they're both connected, the DP will not power off. The NVidia tech had me uninstall and reinstall the 1660 drivers. No help. They've now suggested that I try to go into the B745 bios disable the DP port on the integrated graphics on the MB. They also suggested disabling "multi monitor mode". I got into the bios and found something like multi monitor mode but it was already disabled. Is there a way to disable the on-board DP? I'll try updating the chipset drivers in the mean time. Thanks for the above and thanks in advance for anything else you suggest! P.S. After looking at the MSI downloads page, specifically which am I downloading and install? The BIOS or the "System & Chipset Drivers"? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 21 @ZaneS do both. Download and install the Intel Chipset driver dated Release date 2021-01-26. Then test your GPU. If still have problem, then download the bios version 7c75va6 to a usb drive. Below is a video on how to update your z490 bios. Was the 1660 purchased from MC? https://www.wepc.com/how-to/update-msi-bios/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 21 edited March 21 @TSTDavey thanks for the great info. I got the chipset update done but unfortunately it didn't help. I'm trying the bios update. I followed the instructions and the M flash process sees it on the USB drive, but it's not recognizing it as an update and just shows N/A's for the selected bios. I've attached a screen shot. I'm sure I'm just missing something simple. It sees the USB drive and the folder \7C75va6. When I enter into that folder, it does not show me the E7C7IMS.A60 file that is actually in there?? The USB drive is FAT32 and the drive shows up in M Flash. And yes, I bought the 1660 at MC. IMG_8764.jpeg 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 22 @ZaneS don't worry about the bios update, I realized now it won't update, due to my mistake. It was brought to my attention that I gave you the MSI z490 gaming plus motherboard bios and link. The B745 has a MSI Z490 Plus motherboard, not Gaming plus. I missed that when looking up the MSI motherboard manufacturer's site. My apologies for that, I overlooked it. The chipset update you've done should not impact your powerspec. MSI does not publish the bios update for the MSI z490 Plus board because its for a powerspec system only and not a commercial board. This powerspec would have to be brought into the store for this update. So bringing this into the store is an option. But lets focus back on the 1660 gpu. When was the 1660 purchased? Have you attempted to update the 1660 drivers? Also what is your power options in control panel on, can you adjust your power options to "High Performance", then test if the monitor blacks out. https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000211304-Using-the-High-performance-power-plan-Windows- 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 23 @TSTDavey thanks for the clarification. At least I know I'm not losing my mind on the bios update! Put it in high performance mode, no change. Still comes back on to backlight. I bought the 1660 sometime in January I think? The drivers are updated. I'm running the NVIDIA Studio Driver 461.92 dated 3-17-21. I worked with the GeForce tech people through their chat to do a complete uninstall and clean reinstall of the drivers. They are the ones that suggested disabling the onboard DP port and the multi-monitor mode. Interestingly, the DP only fails to power off when both the DP and HDMI connections on the 1660 are in use. If I unplug the HDMI, the DP will sleep like a baby. Thanks again for staying after this! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 23 @ZaneS your power distribution is controlled by the motherboard and bios. If there are issues with the GPU not powering off the monitor, or not going to sleep, that can be caused by the power interface within the bios; if there is something wrong with it or out of date. If you had another computer, it would be great for you to take out the 1660 and install it in another computer and see if you get the same results in another system. It hard to tell if its the GPU or motherboard. My money is on your motherboard and its power interface within the motherboard bios. Again the bios can't found online it has to be updated in the store (my mistake above). Let me create a ticket for this. I will email you for more information to create the ticket on our end. I'd recommend to bring it to the store to have our Powerspec guys take a look at it. Any other MC forum Admin have any other thoughts please chime in. I recommend to bring to the store for this customer. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 23 @TSTDavey thanks for the update. Unfortunately, I don't have another machine to try. In fact, I bought the B745 to accommodate the 1660 because I didn't have a current machine that would do so. I responded to the ticket for instructions on what to do next. I definitely want to bring it in. Will the ticket # assigned have all this history attached to it when I bring it in? Thanks again for all the help! I'll let you know how it all works out after I bring it in. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 25 @TSTDavey I tried one more thing. It dawned on me that everything I had done involved the Asus ProArt monitors. I had tried every port to verify that it only seemed to happen on the DP, verified that it wasn't just a problem with one of the monitors, and even tried a another desktop that had onboard DP. I had not tried another DP monitor. Brought one home today and the B745 successfully turned it off! So here is a summary: B745 + Asus ProArt DP = fail B745 + HP E222 = pass HP ProDesk 600 G1 + Asus ProArt DP = pass So, I can't point to just the B745/1660 duo as the problem but likewise can't point to the Asus as the problem either. It's the combination of the two. To really fix this, your guys in the store will have to pair it with an Asus ProArt. Would they have one so I don't have to transport one of mine? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 25 It's possible that they would be able to acquire a ProArt display, but I can't guarantee that they will have one on hand for this. However, the diagnostic testing that is done in our service department is quite extensive and I would strongly recommend sharing this information with them when you bring your device in for diagnostics! You would not be required to bring in your ProArt display if that is an inconvenience for you! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ZaneS ✭ March 26 Ok great, thank you! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin March 26 You're welcome, please let us know if you have any other questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JeffVB ✭ May 15 ZaneS, it looks like @TSTDavey gave you the answer you needed, or at least better detail for a staff member. I have the same PA278QV / ASUS 1660 Super behaving the exact same way with backlight staying on in sleep/low power. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin May 15 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32286#Comment_32286 Hello, the troubleshooting detailed above did not make any change for you? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JeffVB ✭ May 16 Thanks, @Ian , I searched the string for troubleshooting and saw "exchange your cable connections between monitors? I would start with that for troubleshooting. That would be the easiest way to start narrowing down the issue." Narrow down to what? @ZaneS said he tried that suggestion with no change. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_JosephF admin May 16 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/32360#Comment_32360 I believe @Ian suggested this as it is always a good first step. Change the cables to see if the issue is the same or not. Even trying a different GPU/input source entirely would be a good idea. And when we day narrow down the issue, we mean try connecting it in different ways like this to see if the issue is coming from the GPU itself or the monitor. Perhaps it is a hardware issue or driver issue. Trying to use different cables and devices is the easiest way to start troubleshooting. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin May 18 @ZaneS @JeffVB Try this: OSD - System Setup (Wrench icon) - DisplayPort Stream. It most likely defaults to DP 1.1. If so, switch it to 1.2 and see if the issue goes away. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

For reasons of space I’m looking at something in the 24” range. I use my computer for browsing the internet (sometimes for extended periods), watching movies and TV shows, listening to music, and sometimes recording music. I don’t game at all. I don’t need speakers on the monitor, though I don’t mind if they’re there. I have this computer, unmodified: https://www.microcenter.com/product/507423/acer-aspire-tc-885-ur12-desktop-computer In researching over the past few days, I’ve been leaning toward these, sometimes one, sometimes another: AOC 24G2 https://www.microcenter.com/product/633304/aoc-24g2-238-full-hd-144hz-hdmi-vga-dp-freesync-ips-frameless-lcd-gaming-monitor Viewsonic XG2405 https://www.microcenter.com/product/626193/viewsonic-xg2405--24-full-hd-144hz-hdmi-dp-freesync-premium-hdr-ips-led-gaming-monitor Asus ProArt PA248QV https://www.microcenter.com/product/624528/asus-proart-display-pa248qv-241-wuxga-75hz-hdmi-dp-vga-freesync-pre-calibrated-ips-led-monitor The first two are gaming computers, and as I said, I don’t game, but they seem good. After days of reading all kinds of reviews, I honestly don’t remember how they ended up at the top of the list, but they did. I’ve been leaning most heavily toward the Asus, because the color quality seems like it might be good for movies and because I might at some point get back into taking and editing photos (strictly hobby level). And the extra space might be nice when using music software. Will I have any trouble with the 1920x1200 resolution with the computer listed above? And will I need a different HDMI cable than the one suggested on the product page (it says it has a max resolution of 1080)? Maybe this one: https://www.microcenter.com/product/485072/inland-hdmi-male-to-hdmi-male-24k-gold-plated-high-speed-cable-with-ethernet-6-ft---black ? Alternatively, maybe given my computer and usage, any of these would be overkill and I should get something like one of these (though if I can use it without problem, I am still leaning toward the Asus ProArt): https://www.microcenter.com/product/512419/asus-vp248qg-24-full-hd-75hz-hdmi-vga-dp-freesync-eye-care-led-monitor https://www.microcenter.com/product/613199/aoc-24b2xh-238-full-hd-60hz-hdmi-vga-ips-led-monitor Sorry for lengthy post. Any input or advice is welcomed. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin March 30 The ProArt's in my opinion are fantastic monitors for their price, especially if you do plan on doing any sort of photo editing. It really is probably the best bang for the buck monitor if you don't intend to do any gaming. The gaming monitors may have a higher refresh rate but quality / color quality will generally be lower. HDMI does support the 1920x1200 resolution level per the product manual so there should be no issue there. I would recommend the ProArt over a gaming display for what you are describing. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook endmatter ✭ March 30 Thank you. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 1 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/30453#Comment_30453 You're welcome, please let us know if you have any other questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Dulfite ✭ August 2020 in General Discussion I love the computer except for the temperature. When I play a game on it, the thing reaches insane temperatures. I don't want my parts to be damaged from heat (it gets to around 100 degrees when gaming) or my lap to catch on fire. I have used it both on my lap pad as well as over a Targus cooling pad (AWE61) and it heats up regardless. I've read online what various people have done, from Throttlestop, to getting a better fan pad (with 5 fans instead of the two I have on mine), to simply getting a stand to prop it up and allow better airflow. Please give me your solutions, thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin August 2020 Hello @Dulfite Unfortunately, this is just how gaming laptops are, especially the more expensive ones.  You are putting in very good and strong parts inside a very small space.  There are some solutions that other manufacturers are exploring when it comes to cooling gaming laptops however current prototypes are a bit off.   My current favorite solution to this is the new ASUS ProArt and ASUS Mothership (not released).  The ProArt is a studio laptop however it is based off the Mothership.  The concept is that all the hardware and cooling are on the lid so that it is facing the air and not facing the desk.   My recommendations for mitigating heat from the laptop 1.) Lower the ambient temperature in the room if possible 2.) Use a stand or cooling pad to allow a lot of extra space for air intake from the bottom of the laptop 3.) Underclocking the processor/GPU.  This will lower performance but will also lower the heat 4.) Avoid using it on your lap   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dulfite ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 TSPhillipT said: Hello @Dulfite Unfortunately, this is just how gaming laptops are, especially the more expensive ones.  You are putting in very good and strong parts inside a very small space.  There are some solutions that other manufacturers are exploring when it comes to cooling gaming laptops however current prototypes are a bit off.   My current favorite solution to this is the new ASUS ProArt and ASUS Mothership (not released).  The ProArt is a studio laptop however it is based off the Mothership.  The concept is that all the hardware and cooling are on the lid so that it is facing the air and not facing the desk.   My recommendations for mitigating heat from the laptop 1.)

Regarding your points: 1) Room temperature is generally set at 75, sometimes 73, I'm a married man and can't really get away with anything cooler than that. What is the optimal temperature recommended? Would a ceiling fan directly over me and the laptop more so impact this positively? 2) As I mentioned, I have a cooling bad and a separate Targus cooling fan that goes under the laptop. When I put the laptop directly on either of those it still runs hot. That fan pad worked wonders on my Acer (which uses a gtx950m), but it isn't helping with this computer. Is there a recommended cooling pad/fan that works best? I tried propping up the computer with something in order to allow more airflow, but that did nothing to resolve the heat when I was playing a game. 3) How do you do this? With Throttlestop? 4) I only use it directly on my lap when I'm doing non gaming things, but there is absolutely no heat problem during those times so far. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 I'm pretty sure the 10th gen Intel CPUs should be throttling at 90C so if you're hitting 100 then something is probably wrong. If the cooling pad isn't helping you at all, then there's a few possibilities for why: The cooling in the computer is just poorly designed Something is not working properly/defective Your fans for some reason aren't set to their max speeds when under heavy load.  Are you specifically making sure that your have your fans set to max speed when gaming? They may not automatically go to 100%, some laptops will only go up to something like 70% then you have to press a button or enable a settings to actually get max speeds. Undervolting your CPU would be done via BIOS and changing the voltage settings, for your GPU you can use MSI Afterburner to do it. I personally haven't undervolted so I can't really offer any advice there. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dulfite ✭ August 2020 Okay so I manually put my fan on 100% when I play games and that has decreased it significantly. With the fan on I don't think it went over 80, let alone near 100. Hopefully this is the fix for any game. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Yep, that sounds about right. A temp decrease like that should drastically reduce thermal throttling and improve performance.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

I don’t currently create or design in 3D and don’t plan on using this build for any kind of 3D modeling or rendering in the future. My budget is $1,400 USD. There’s not a lot of wiggle room there. However, I have plenty of extra keyboards, mice, and graphics tablets lying around that I won’t need to include in the budget. However, I don’t know that much about monitors, and color accuracy is a huge priority to me, so if y’all have any recommendations on those I'm interested in reading them. I put together a build in the link below, please feel free to make suggestions https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bf2279e2-0749-4a04-85ac-95bd1d386324 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin April 3 Greetings. Looking over everything there, it does look pretty solid. It looks like you have an ATX sized case picked out and a mini-ITX motherboard, you could save yourself a good bit on that budget by swapping over to a full size board such as https://www.microcenter.com/quickViewConfigurator2020/623730/asrock-z490-pro4-intel-lga-1200-atx-motherboard Switching to a board like this wouldn't cut any features and would save you about $90. You can probably come down on the power supply wattage to something around a 650-750W supply and save some there too. You wouldn't run into issue with a supply of that wattage. Is the monitor a part of your budget? We can definitely make some suggestions on that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SapphireStar USA ✭ April 6 Hi Ian, thanks for responding. Your recommendation sounds good, I have already updated the list to include the full-size ATX motherboard you mentioned. That's a good question about the monitor. I believe I have an older monitor in storage that I could use for the moment to not strain the current budget, but I would need to double-check before assuming that I still have it. 🤔 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 6 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/30732#Comment_30732 You're welcome! As for the monitor, for design work, I'd start by taking a look at the following: https://www.microcenter.com/product/624528/asus-proart-display-pa248qv-241-wuxga-75hz-hdmi-dp-vga-freesync-pre-calibrated-ips-led-monitor or the 27" version: https://www.microcenter.com/product/624539/asus-proart-display-pa278qv-27-wqhd-75hz-mini-displayport-hdmi-dvi-d-displayport-freesync-ips-led-monitor 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SapphireStar USA ✭ June 15 Thank you so much for your response @Ian If something on my list is out of stock, would it be easier to wait for parts to come back into stock, or pick a new part? 🤔 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 15 @SapphireStar just chiming in. It depends on how soon you want the build completed. Its better to have all you parts and your system be built all under one take, instead of returning to have an out of stock item installed. If you can wait until you have all your parts, then go that direction. If can't wait, then when a part is in stock. bring your build back to the store for installation. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

Writing scripts everything I use my computer for basically everything I need. With that in mind I picked for this building I picked a 3090 Because I would love one just to window stuff fast and don’t have to deal with the slow when doing I also picked 64 GB of RAM because I feel like that is a good gb rang. I went with the AMD 9050 Because it is the flagship CPU plus that CPU also would help me with the rendering and picture editing I do. I did MSI motherboard and GPU because I have MSI in all my computers that I have now and I love them so that is one thing I normally build with and then my other favorite parts are Corsair The parts that is Corsair are Water cooling kit Because that will keep the computer cool it might be a little overboard but I always love the custom loop wanted to do something different for this build. Also the case the ram and fans are Corsair. I went with a 1 TB m.2 for the boot drive and a 4 TB storage drive to save all my work. So I built some thing for work and For gaming https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=1391830e-632e-4f88-978b-32260b062f10 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Zachary1124 ✭ May 21 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=1391830e-632e-4f88-978b-32260b062f10 for my build I went with a work and gaming.

With the R7 3700, you have the option for streaming, gaming, and programming if you're into these things. The RTX 2060, assuming it was in stock and priced properly, would be an affordable way to get great FPS and quality in your game(s) and get a decent VR experience to start. The motherboard was selected for the chipset and for its Gen4 PCIe slot for excellent compatibility with later generations of Gen4 cards, making for an excellent upgrade path. The RAM was selected for its speed, capacity, and a little bit of RGB bling, same with the cooler selection. Great performance, with a solid upgrade path with the option to add an additional two sticks, and a nice bit of bling. As for the case. I would've gone with a Corsair 5000D AF for obvious airflow reasons, but the 4000D AF works just fine, it was also one of the only Corsair cases on the products list at the time of me making this comment. Storage was chosen around "I want certain things to be fast and have lots of storage for just things in general". A 1TB Samsung 870 EVO for the OS and any additional programs you'd like to have quick and near immediate access to, with a 4TB Seagate BarraCuda for general mass data storage/hoarding. All in all, while it's not a computer you can build with your 5 McDonald's paychecks working part time, it's certainly an affordable build for a burgeoning PC enthusiast with a solid upgrade path with great performance to run out the gate with. I did not include things like the OS because lets face it, most people are buying cheap OEM keys on other websites.

It's going to get you very high gameplay at 1080, 1440, and you could even dip your toes into some 4k gaming because of the 3070. I kind of like the blue, purple, and black color that MSI uses in their product pictures, so I chose a few parts from them. I matched the case fans with the case, which happens to be Corsair. I chose the 4000D airflow as my case and put in six LL120 fans. I included a 970 evo plus as a boot drive (1tb), and a 4tb hard drive from Seagate for bigger files. I only chose 16 gigs of ram, however, they are at 3600mhz and are CL16. I feel it would fit well into the build, and you can always buy two kits for 32 gigs. For a power supply, i went with a 750 watt, 80+ gold certified supply from EVGA, their SuperNOVA 750 GT. Fully modular, and should leave you with enough headroom if you wanted to get a beefier 30 series card, a high end 6000 series card from AMD, or a next gen card in the coming years. I included no peripherals or windows key, but if you want a decent monitor, keyboard, mouse, and a legit key, expect to spend an extra $400-600. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=8ffd2545-4bc9-46be-a058-37521440d89f 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Barry_Bluejeans_1952 ✭ May 21 Honestly I just like throwing all the best or reasonably best parts into a build just to see what the prices are like then scale back when I actually go to purchase. Would have prefered ryzen 5, but your builder didn't make it available. Added a high capacity m.2 and 250mm ssd. Note when I went through your description for 870 EVOs and even QVO called them MLC when they are TLC and QLC respectively. I like high capacity ssd storage as I have slow download speeds so I keep games on my drives longer than I should In case my friends and I cycle back through them. Overall I focused more on just 1440P gaming, as I think FPS>resolution, with some cpu overhead for future gpu upgrades. Other than that is was selecting a reasonable example of what I might want, but understand if I were buying I would spend days or weeks researching and agonizing over every part. Your builder likewise is missing parts as options even though I know I've seen you carry them in the past. And I don't mean the placeholder for gpus, which I think was a good design choice. As to why I think my build is better, when I loaded your build, it didn't have primary parts, just like a case and gpu, so mine actually works, even if overpriced for my needs https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=6bfa6149-7590-435f-a7f1-ab30e1e7c898 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kiritorey ✭ May 21 There where no buget so i build my dream gaming rig.

Though not the top per core speed, it will do very high end gaming while still crunching through large video projects. For added bonus, the RGB fans will increase the systems visual appeal in the room. This build will allow further upgrade when RTX 3090s become available again or when they release the next series as the system is fully PCIe 4 compatible. This was a dream big build as its cost is definitely living on the red planet waiting for Elon to bring Doge over. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bd70e36f-f47b-4a97-92f3-f7a5a4dc6304 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Zebi ✭ May 21 I made my dream pc with a pleanty of rgb! https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=0505bb2b-184e-4ba6-a4de-cc2d22e82420 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Slycer500 ✭ May 21 edited May 21 The "no compromise" build, having rgb yet elegant.

I chose to build a "Do-Everything" build so I went with a Threadripper CPU and motherboard combination for heavy multithreaded tasks when using it as a workstation. Coupled with that CPU I selected 128gb of 3200mhz Corsair Vengeance ram, again, for workstation purposes. I've got an enormous PSU to feed that 64-core Threadripper as well as the gigantic 25gb RTX 3090 that will handle just about any workload as well as any game for when you're done working. A 980 PRO 2TB M.2 SSD will be the Windows 10 Pro boot drive, an extra one just for fun, a 8tb 2.5" SSD for games, and a 10tb HDD for bulk storage. All inside a beautiful Lian-Li eATX case. Alongside the PC will be an Asus ProArt display for color accuracy in workstation situations and right next to it will be another ASUS 27" display, this time with a much higher refresh rate for gaming. Both 1440p resolution. I think that should handle just about anything. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=9a71c439-b51f-4f6e-9abe-b8f24d4f1959 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook RardosKladush ✭ May 21 Tried to avoid RGB. Aren´t there any cases without a windowed side panel to achieve a unobtrusive, clean look. Other than that it´s a build with lots of OC-capability, and a good Price-to-Perfomance-Ratio. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=d129c1e1-a3d6-48ec-aa33-373b531debc1 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BluePurity ✭ May 21 I chose an AMD APU build because graphics cards are hard to come by at MSRP and an Intel i3 10100f may be faster in cpu but has a slower integrated graphics which will need an actual graphics card for games other than esports titles which will raise the price Though the 3200G is acceptable for 720p gaming, a B450 board would allow for some overclocking of the gpu portion for more performance and having an APU means when a graphics cards are more accessible at lower prices, you just have to slot in the gpu for an upgrade. The 16gb of RAM at 3000mhz is very important for the 3200G since it will use the system ram as VRAM and having it at single channel will hurt performance below an acceptable level. I chose the Lian Li LANCOOL 205 since it has a more reasonable case price while having two fans with a decent amount possible airflow. I decided on a microATX case because a microATX motherboard with an full ATX case will make cables more visible and the computer seem empty inside even more since this is an 3200G build. It also has a PSU basement to hide cables for a cleaner build. The PowerSpec 650W semi modular was chosen for its semi modularity to reduce cable management and 650W allowing room for a good amount of gpus options to upgrade to. 240gb boot SSD may not be too large but its enough to fit a few games while speeding up the operating system complimented by a 1tb 7200RPM drive to hold the biggest of games. I would have chosen a 2tb Seagate but was too expensive and 1tb is enough unless you specifically need 2tb. And that's my build, an entry level gaming pc without a graphics card but one with enough power to run most games at 720p with the option to overclock to make an almost playable game, playable. It will also be upgradable since the power supply can provide the wattage for a future gpu upgrade. And because its around $500, this is a possible build for the winner of the giveaway. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=fe32e8ba-2c4b-4e12-828a-00e5193861cf 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Odin ✭ May 21 I thought this build is great and put it together ❤ https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=9588afdb-1e23-4588-b6f6-24bf12bc6e94 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SlimsyCell92089 ✭ May 21 This is what I call the white out, if you can get the 3060 for msrp, then it will be just about $2000.

Definitely not the best, but as a "full" build, it's not bad. Would have loved more RGB, but that's the sacrifices we make (no RGB has worked for me over the past few years anyway).

For RAM, i was thinking two 4gb sticks, but i had spare budget haha. This will get the job done quite well, and will allow you to upgrade both the CPU and the GPU later when more is available.

Here are the parts and why: CPU 3700x - awesome CPU no real explanation needed for this. MOBO - MSI - B550M PRO-VDH (WiFi) AMD AM4 microATX Motherboard - I don't put to much emphasis on my motherboard because most fancy features aren't needed Ram - Crucial - Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit - Black - Same deal as mobo. Just name fastest clocked brand with the style that my friend picked out :) Case - Corsair - Crystal 280X RGB Tempered Glass microATX Mini-Tower Computer Case - Super easy to build in. I am not so much a fan of the 2 part style, but this is actually the case my buddy picked out for its more industrial look. PSU - Corsair - RM750 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply = 750W - powerful, efficient and pretty decent base on the tier lists that are out there. GPU - EVGA - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming Dual-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card - The base tier is plenty decent for everything and anything these day (outside of a few exceptions of course). EVGA did a great job this gen and love their line of 30 cards with the sleek black design. SSD - WD - Blue SN550 1TB (WDS100T2B0C) M.2 NVMe Interface PCIe 3.0 x4, up to 2400MB/s, Internal Solid State Drive with 3D TLC NAND, 2280 - 1TB of storage from a reputable source. CPU Cooler - Noctua - NH-D15S CPU Cooler - Probably overkill for a 3700x but leaves plenty of headroom for an upgrade Thanks for the contest! The builder is seamless, but still needs a bit of work. Compatibility filters are a little over-zealous. Namely if you select an mATX board the results will only show you mATX cases rather than all ATX cases as well. Same deal with the CPU cooler. Some full bodied coolers will work with a micro case so there is no need to filter down to just low profile blocks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook RAgE ✭ May 21 You know this build is not about the budget it's about true performance, this is my dream build and if MICRO CENTRAL want's that can give me this, PC as a birthday gift 🎁 you may think what they would de that..................... 🤨You know it MICRO CENTRAL https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=46879f46-8cc1-413f-abcb-c9fc0d8d98e8 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook theBean ✭ May 21 edited May 21 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=45edc25a-c844-429f-8ac6-f8f702e2f472 This is a build for the average person who doesn't want to spend too much on a PC, but still play games in the free time. I call it 'The Beginning,' because it is a full pc build fro $800. It includes a keyboard, mouse, monitor, headset, all adapters and cables needed, and the PC itself. This closely reflects my first build, that I mowed tons of yards to get money for it. It is also designed to be affordable in this day and age, with that strange thing they're talking about, and the electronics prices. I included the Ryzen 3 3200G with Vega 8 graphics, one of the best iGPUs in the market. I imagine that the price would go down even more when (yes, when) this is all over and prices are back to normal! I included a 240gb ssd, and a 2tb hdd, the ssd for boot and the hdd for games. The psu is the same one from the starter build. I went with 16gb of ram, as that is all that should be needed. The stock cooler should do just fine. The keyboard + mouse + headset combo is the same one I have, I LOVE it a lot. As for the fans, you can't really go wrong with Arctic! It is also future proof, as you can (somewhat) easily replace the cpu, add a graphics card, change out the storage, add more ram, etc. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook matt11 ✭ May 21 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=da2505d9-4a0b-4eaf-b652-d5d3d440e918 Just selected some of the most expensive things. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Hopalong ✭ May 21 Looking to be a bit "Future Proof" without going overboard.

I've gotten this monitor twice, never seen it in micro center My first one I ordered from best buy, but it arrived DOA My second I ordered directly from ASUS, but it arrived physically damaged from the warehouse. An ASUS employee damaged it and sent it out anyway, most likely because they had no stock and they didn't want to fess up to the damage. So I had to struggle with ASUS  CS to return it, may have to charge them back to even get a refund but I'll wait. Never order directly from ASUS. Worst CS you'll ever experience MC as far as I know has never had any stock in my area, I've seen this monitor in-stock once at one location and it was only one panel, not my location but just on the website. Also the employees told me they had zero incoming stock when I asked a week ago. Maybe by end of november we might see a few panels pop up at local MCs. Seems like a paper launch for this too, especially since a lot of people are unfortunately having QC issues with this monitor. I may end up going with dell's implementation instead, assuming QC is better. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

What could be causing this issue, replaced motherboard with another new board. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSMikeW admin July 12 Greetings @McBragg Based on the description, this sounds like a POST with a video output issue. Debug LED on boot means the CPU/RAM/VGA initialized. You don't have a bootable device connected, the system should be in the BIOS. So we'll need to see what's going on here. Test another monitor. If you're using a TV, this could be an issue at the BIOS level. Check the video cable as well. You've got an 11600K. Remove your 3060 and test with the IGP connected. If the IGP works. reinstall the video card, but leave the monitor connected to the IGP. Boot the system. If you get video, it's not detecting your 3060. If no video with the IGP connected, move the monitor to the 3060. Reboot. See if you get video. If not, it's a video output issue. If you were able to get video with the IGP, you've ruled out the monitor and cable. This would mean the card is the culprit. It's being detected, but it's not functioning properly. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

I went by and the card is back on the shelf. 7 yellow price stickers on it when I got it. Wonder how many people will get screwed by this card.  Looking over that issue, there shouldn't be anything that would cause a PSU to fry. From what was posted, that issue will cause higher thermals due to reduced mounting pressure between the heatsink and GPU die, which would cause higher thermals on the die itself and as a result, thermal throttling. Even if a GPU heatsink is not attached, it should not cause any issues at the PCIe power connectors, or subsequent PSU connection to the GPU. Melting PSU cables/connectors is typically a result of too much current being pulled through them or incorrect pinout of the PSU cable connector/wrong cable plugged in (8 pin EPS vs 8 pin PCIe). Checking the serial of the card, it was manufactured in March of 2020, which should have been free of this manufacturing defect according to the article linked. If the card is indeed back on the shelf, it would've had to pass extensive testing to make sure it functions to normal specifications. This would include making sure a driver is loaded and that the card can handle sustained stress under a 3D load. To be safe, I'll forward this over to your local Micro Centers management team and have them double check the card as it's always worth making sure nothing slips through the cracks. In the meantime, I would recommend awaiting a response from a manager of the store in regards to your PSU and what options you may have with us. You can also check with the manufacturer of the PSU as it's possible you can RMA the PSU through them for a replacement if the unit itself is at fault. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

It does perfectly via hdmi to my TV. The panel isn't damaged, changing refresh rates and resolutions had no effect, cable connections are secure i've updated every driver I can think of. The only thing that had any effect was changing the display mode to gaming on the monitor, but that fixed it only for some games, and at this point Idk what to do. Here is my Build Ryzen 7 3800x, Asus Tuf gaming  X570-PLUS (wifi), Asus Dual RTX 2070 Super, 16 GB 2x8 D4 3600 mhz ripjaw, WD 500 GB NVME SSD SN750, 2 TB Seagate barracuda 3.5 HD, EVGA BQ 750W 80+ Bronze SM ATX. And an Asus 23.8" VP249 monitor. The following pictures are to show how the monitor performs during different activities, please help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin September 2020 You said it displays fine when attached to your TV via HDMI, are you using the same cable when doing so, or are you using a different cable? My first thought for this would be switch the cables, since that's the easiest thing to do. Otherwise, if it's not happening when attached to your TV your GPU should be fine and it's likely an issue with the monitor itself.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Rand ✭ September 2020 I was using the display port cable but, switching to the same hdmi I used for the TV, didn't change it. However I did find out that it runs in windowed mode just fine? I don't think it's the gpu and its definitely not the cables. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 Usually if it's a GPU problem, artifacts will always always be present regardless of what you're doing, however I would assume the same if it's a problem with the monitor itself. If switching it around between windowed/full screen affects this, we may be looking at a software or a driver related issue.  Try doing a clean install for your video drivers: https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/2858/how-to-roll-back-or-clean-install-video-card-drivers-in-windows-10 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Can anyone tell what RAM memory I would need to upgrade the RAM? Thank you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin February 4 Hello @MrPete and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. The Rampage III should support DDR3-1600 ram. You could go with DDR3-2133  as well, which has faster ram speed than the DDR3-1600. We do not carry the 2133, but your nearest Microcenter store should have the DDR3-1600 desktop ram memory module sticks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin February 4 @MrPete oh just to add, the Rampage III only supports up to a max of 24 gigs of memory.

As ASUS authorized repair we would be able to order any parts from them directly. Currently with covid-19 our service departments are operating on a drop off basis so you may bring the system in with the power cord at any time and we would then contact you after determining everything we need. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Now I've gotten word from Google that the C100P will be at end of life by the end of July. I've seen various articles that say the device can be booted into Linux, but that it requires removing a R/W pin from inside. Is this a hardware fix you provide? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin June 2020 Greetings.

The RTX 2060 does perform better than the 5500 xt. Now you mentioned about the 5500 may not be the card you are looking at previously. Was it the 5700 XT that you were looking at. The RX 5700 XT outperforms the RTX 2060, just an FYI. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

Welcome to the community! That's really impressive to be a 2070. It looks like it a desktop chip too, not a Max-Q.  Looks like you've found a great deal! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BigWill9701 ✭ January 11 Thanks.   I did see that the sRGB was less than 50%.   Would I notice that much in game?   Also, am I correct in assuming that this won't be a factor when I use an external gaming monitor? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BigWill9701 ✭ January 11 @LandShark I agree regarding the desktop chip as well.   I'm just trying to find the reason why it's priced so reasonably lol. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 11 You're correct. I wouldn't recommend using the screen for photo editing or color correction, but you probably won't notice that color accuracy while gaming. You're correct to assume that it won't matter if you plug an external monitor into the computer. Looks like a great deal. I'm tempted to buy myself a late Christmas present. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.
