Community Article Replacement plans cost — Micro Center Replacement plans cost kman78 ✭ April 23 in Sales Hello, I am trying to find additional details for your replacement plans.  Specifically, how much it costs.  I've looked through your site and are unable to find these details.  When buying a replacement plan for a CPU or GPU, how is the cost determined, or is it a flat price?  How long do the replacement plans last?  Can a replacement plan to be purchased for an open box item? Thanks for your help! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments Ian admin April 23 Greetings. If you come in and work with a store sales associate at our stores, they will be able to go over all the specific pricing with you. You can get an idea of the protection plans that we sell here: https://www.microcenter.com/site/customer-support/protection-plans/protection-plans-master.aspx They are typically available for 2 or 3 years dependent on item/plan available and would be available for open box items.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter kman78 ✭ April 23 Thanks for the response.  I've looked at the link, but unfortunately, it doesn't provide pricing.  I've tried calling in, but have not been able to get through during this understandably busy time, and didn't want to make the trip in to discuss given the recommendations that we try to shop for what we need quickly without spending too much time in the store. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AlexS admin April 23 @kman78 Is there a particular SKU you had in mind?  I can try to see if we can try to get some info for you.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter kman78 ✭ April 23 Hi Alex, I'm looking to possibly buy an open box RTX 2070 Super, preferably something under my $500 budget limit.  Being that these are open box items, I was looking at some replacement/warranty options and wanted to know what those costs would be.  I've included a link below of one as an example.  Thank you for your help! https://www.microcenter.com/product/616170/msi-geforce-rtx-2070-super-gaming-x-overclocked-dual-fan-8gb-gddr6-pcie-30-video-card?ob=1 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter kman78 ✭ April 24 Could you also advise what this means: COVERED BY MICRO CENTER'\''S 1 I see this on most open box listings on your site, but I don’t know what it means.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TS_BryantA admin April 24 @kman78 Good morning and thank you for your question! This listing on our Open Box items means that the item is covered through Micro Center if you have any warranty issues with this product.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter kman78 ✭ April 24 Thanks Bryant.  If that is the case, is that where I should purchase a replacement warranty?  If so, it goes back to my original question as to how much that would be?  Is it based on the cost of the card, or is it a flat rate?  Please use the card I linked previously as an example. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TS_BryantA admin April 24 @kman78 You're welcome! I'm happy to help. Yes replacement plans would be purchased in store through Micro Center. The cost on our Build Your Own PC component replacement plans will vary with the price of the component. I was unable to see the open box listing on the link provided, though any Video Cards from $500-999 for the starting 2 year plan is currently $139.99, and the 3 year plan is currently $199.99. For Video Cards $400-499, the 2 year replacement plan is currently $69.99, and the 3 year replacement plan is currently $139.99. I hope this answers your question, and if you have any additional questions or concerns please let us know! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter kman78 ✭ April 24 Thanks Bryant.  The originally linked item must have been sold.  I just randomly selected another open box item: https://www.microcenter.com/product/609532/evga-geforce-rtx-2060-super-sc-ultra-dual-fan-8gb-gddr6-pcie-30-graphics-card?ob=1 Complete ID: 93408 SKU of the brand new version: 965467 Open Box price: $356.96 Just to make sure I understand the pricing structure for replacement warranties, if I purchase this open box item and opt for the replacement plan/warranty, it would be $69.99 for 2 years, or $139.99 for 3 years - is that correct?  And this replacement plan would allow me to have the GPU replaced or serviced at Microcenter should any issues occur during the selected time period for the warranty I would purchase? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin April 24 Warranty pricing should be based on the actual price paid for the product, so for an open-box at $356.96 it drops down into the next pricing tier. $89.99 for a three year plan, $49.99 for a two year.  The replacement plan basically allows you to bring it back to us for RMA if it encounters hardware issues, rather than sending it to the manufacturer. We wouldn't actually service it though, we would issue store-credit for the original price of the card. So for that card, if it failed in the replacement period you'd receive credit for $356.96.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TS_BryantA admin April 24 @kman78 If the plan was for the brand new version of that SKU, that pricing would be correct. If the price of the item is $356.96, the 2 year replacement plan is currently $49.99, and the 3 year replacement plan is currently $89.99. This is for any options from $300-399. For the replacement plan, should there be any warranty issues confirmed after review by our Tech Consultants in our Service Department at your local store, you would receive a Store Credit. This would be for the amount of the component and would not include the cost of the replacement plan or tax. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Since my primary workflow is in Premiere I decided to go with the Ryzen 9 3950X paired with an RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra 8gb. Since I usually travel for work (pre-COVID) I also needed something portable. Hence choosing the Sliger SM580. At 15.8 liters it's pretty compact and easy to transport when I need my workstation mobile. Cinebench score is 10562 !

Hello, I am looking to build or buy my first pc and am looking for help choosing parts. I would prefer to stay around 600-700 but would also like to be able to game and stream on twitch if possible.  I think a build like this would be appropriate for that budget: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=1d8af866-fcdc-4087-a130-177360448332 If the Ryzen 3 3300X isn't available at your store, you can always jump up to the Ryzen 5 3600 instead. This type of system should work for gaming/streaming on a budget. You won't be able to run AAA titles at Ultra Settings with perfect framerate, but lighter graphics titles like Fortnite, CSGO, Valorant, etc... should all run very well. You'll have to tweak your settings a bit for streaming, but you should be able to make it work at decent quality. The 3300X is very comparable to the old Intel i7-6700k and 7700k, which I've used for streaming previously and worked pretty well.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter jeff_strong ✭ July 19 edited July 19 For 4K60p DCI HDR video editing and gaming performance in mind, what CPU would be best for me?

Budget of about 1500 for CPU and MOBO. I was thinking about the 2990wx thread-ripper, or 3960/70x. Any recommendations?  With a $1500 budget, you wouldn't be able to fit the 3960x or 3970x in unfortunately. The cheapest TRX40 motherboards start at about $400 and the 3960X is $1350.  The 2990WX should be amazing for any kind of video editing, rendering, or other multi-core intensive tasks. That said, these are CPUs designed for productivity applications and gaming is just a by-product. I have read about some performance issues with the 2990WX in gaming online. It appears there are some ways to try and mitigate that by customizing XMP timings for RAM, running in quad-channel configurations for your memory and/or disabling a chunk of the cores on the CPU when gaming.  It's not that you can't game on it, but the more typical consumer chips are better suited for that task. If gaming is a big part of what you do, I think holding out a bit to snag a 3960X might be worth it for the superior single-threaded performance which should benefit gaming a fair bit.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter FireMaster9360 ✭ July 20 I'm Looking to build my first PC, I have about a $500 budget.

I have the peripherals, I just need the PC. I want to play games like Rainbow 6. What parts do  you recommend? For a budget that tight, it's honestly a little difficult to put together a custom build without cutting some corners in a couple areas I'd rather not, mainly the power supply and CPU. If you upped your budget a bit to $600, you could do something like this: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=266f43d9-55bd-448d-9024-7f17ac375b76 You'd have a pretty solid budget gaming CPU with the Ryzen 3 3300X, and the 1650 Super is a solid budget gaming GPU. You may not get 144FPS at max settings in your games, but it should be able to do well. There's an SSD for Windows and a 1TB hard drive to store games on. However, that doesn't include Windows which is another $120-140.  If the budget really is a $500 hard limit, then you could downgrade a couple parts like the CPU and the RAM, and maybe look for a video card on the used market for a little less.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Cal ✭ July 22 I want to build a PC that will be able to handle gaming and streaming simultaneously.

You'll be able to stream while gaming pretty easily as well, regardless of whether you use software or hardware encoding. The alternative would be to jump down to a Ryzen 5 3600, and then upgrade to an RTX 2080 Super which will probably be the better gaming system right now, but the 10600k will pair better with future GPU upgrades. Ultimately that's going to be up to your preferences.  With your budget, I wanted to go with a pretty high quality power supply for longevity and reliability, as its one area I do not want to skimp out on just to save budget. 16GB of RAM is plenty for gaming, and the NR600 case has good airflow at that price. With a Noctua NH-U14S (or similar performance cooler) you should have good cooling capabilities for the 10600k which you'd want to be overclocking ideally.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Isaac23 ✭ July 25 Hi my name is Isaac I want to start gaming on pc and streaming as well but I don't have a PC but I want to build one that can run games like Apex or Fps or any other games.

In esports titles (Fortnite, CSGO, Valorant, League of Legends, etc...) you'll be able to play at 1440p and get good refresh rates, it's really the more graphically intense titles you might have to tweak stuff a bit. Just depends on the game really.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter MrKlackers ✭ July 29 edited July 29 I'm going to build a PC for gaming and I already have a few parts.

Everything should fit together and be compatible, although I would recommend the Ryzen 7 3700X over the 3800X. The 3800X is only very slightly better than the 3700X, maybe 1-2% at best, so it's really not worth the price increase. You won't notice the difference at all. Also keep in mind that the X470 you chose may require the BIOS to be updated to be compatible with the 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs, check for a label on the box that says its Ryzen 3000 Desktop Ready to confirm one way or the other on that.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter «123456» Go Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Screen blur — Micro Center Screen blur Skyraider ✭ April 22 in Technical Support Questions I just built a gaming rig with components from Micro Center. Team was fantastic supporting me throughout the selection, purchase and post-build process.  My mouse blurs on the main screen and my game (Rainbow Six Siege) blurs when I turn in the game.  I've made sure "Display pointer trails" is disabled. Changed the motion blur setting in the game's .ini file to 0.  My rig is a Ryzen 5 3600 on an Asus Prime 570-P motherboard, 16Gb of 3600mHz Ram, with a Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC GPU.  I replaced the GPU last weekend at our Micro Center.  Really bummed given the hardware, time and money I've put into this rig. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As a note, the rig initially wouldn't post when using G.Skill 3600 16Gb RAM. Again, thanks to our Micro Center, they replaced the RAM with Ballistix Elite 3600. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSAustinM admin April 22 Hello @Skyraider, thank you for joining the community page! Now for the gaming rig, has all the drivers been installed and updated to the latest version? Since you are using a Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2070 Super, you can open GeForce Experience (download it if you don't) and it will auto-detect for any driver updates and will allow you to download and install any updates that NVIDIA has for the video card.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Skyraider ✭ April 22 edited April 22 Hi @TSAustinM!  Yes, I downloaded the drivers. The only area I'm not solid on is if I need to or how to download drivers for my ASUS 278QR 144mHz Monitor. It has a generic plug & play driver in place right now. I've seen comments that it is plug & play and doesn't need anything else, but I'm ignorant there.  I had set the X570 into overdirve mode but backed it off to see if that helped. Didn't. It could be me. My work Mac and secondary laptop has the same qhost image when I move the mouse quickly. Speaking of, I have my monitor set on 165mHz since it can overclock. I tried backing it off to 144mHz with no change.  Thank you for your time and any guidance you have. This one seems like a bit of an edge case.  One thing I thought about was if the latest Nvidia drivers were causing it.  I haven't tried an earlier version.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSAustinM admin April 22 Are you using a wired or wireless mouse? You can also open Mouse Properties and check to see if enhance pointer precision is enabled under Pointer Options. You can even try to check for drivers for the mouse since some brands have a driver for their device.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Skyraider ✭ April 23 Good morning @TSAustinM!  I'm using a Glorious Model O wired mouse.  I actually disabled the pointer precision under pointer options. That was a recommendation from a few Siege streamers.  I can enable it and see if that helps. I'll have to see if Glorious has a mouse driver.  The issue is bigger than the mouse blur. It's more Siege blurring when I turn.  I'm trying to see if it's, again, just me or if others are getting the same blur.  I'm just being picky.  I so appreciate your time and guidance!   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSPhillipT admin April 24 Hello @Skyraider!

JoeZip ✭ August 19 in Help Choosing Parts I've got some really old SCSI hard drives with really old files that I'd really like to access.  A couple of Maxtors and a Quantum Lightning ProDrive; all with 50 pin interfaces.  Does anyone offer an external SCSI to USB HD adapter like the SATA IDE to USB HD adapter I've already got?  If not, how about a PCIe host bus adapter with that 50 pin (female) connection?  Preferably well under the $100 mark. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers TSMikeW admin August 20 I haven't seen USB adapters for SCSI recently. Host adapters are an option, but you won't find PCIe with the 50 pin. You will find PCIe with the U320 bus and you can convert this from 68 pin to 50 pin, just make sure you set your jumpers appropriately on the drive itself. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Adding a second screen — Micro Center Adding a second screen DavePro ✭ August 20 in Technical Support Questions I want to add a second screen so I can see two different screens at the same time. The laptop is running on Windows 10.   I have an old screen with a 15 pin connection.  Purchased a 15 pin to HDMI adopter.  Windows 10 will not recognize the second screen.   In settings the display box displays "1/2" rather than "screen 1 and 2". Should I be using a 15 pin to a UBS adopter instead or could it be that my screen is too old. I would appreciate your input.    0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers TSMikeW admin August 20 Greetings @DavePro So if you're going from HDMI on the laptop to VGA, you need an HDMI to VGA adapter. Interpret this literally. If your adapter says VGA to HDMI, then it's backwards and it won't work. Either an adapter or a USB adapter will work though. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter DavePro ✭ August 23 The adapter I used was "HDMI to VGA Adapter with audio", and it did not work.  The screen I am trying to us is ViewSonic VG150B. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMikeW admin August 23 @DavePro So seeing the 1|2 means you're in duplicate instead of extend. The monitors can't  have independent resolutions in this mode. Press Windows + P, and toggle to Extend, then you should be able to adjust the resolution on the second monitor to  get it to work. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Re-stocking schedule? — Micro Center Re-stocking schedule? Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ May 18 in Sales What day(s) of the week do you guys get re-stocked? Or is it more like 1 or 2 times a month? I think by knowing roughly when you guys get re-stocked, we'd have a better idea of item availability and be more on the lookout around those times to snag them when they get put on the shelves. I know there's a bit of a delay when the items are put on the shelves and then pop up online, but how much of a delay? Hours? Couple of days? I shop the Mayfield Heights, OH location. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments Ian admin May 18 Greetings. I am sorry we would not be sure on when a specific store will get more items in stock.  To check our latest stock/availability of a specific Micro Center store, visit the website, select your local Micro Center at the top of the page under "My Store" and you can view their stock. Store stock is updated regularly during business hours online. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter C0v3rt_X ✭ May 19 edited May 19 @Waffler - That's a great point. I'd love to know their restocking schedule so we can beat the rush. But as what Ian said, they cannot be sure since shipments are slow in these times but for my home MC, every Wendsday a truck comes but I am sure that changed due to COVID-19. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Laptop screen repair — Micro Center Laptop screen repair M_CHORJEL25 ✭ June 22 in Customer Service Questions hey I bought a hp pavilion x360 from microcenter last year. The Warrenty i belive expired a few months ago, Unfortunately for me. It fell off of my desk and the screen shattered. I can still see everything on the screen, its just the glass that is broken, and I think because the screen shattered it won't let me use the touch screen part.  I was wondering if I could get a quote as to how much it might be to repair it.

Community Article Black Screen after Boot? — Micro Center Black Screen after Boot? Ryan_Waltman ✭ November 5 in Technical Support Questions I did a fresh reinstall of Windows 10 I got at Micro-center after the screen kept staying black (and flickering with random lights on parts of the screen). The screen works when going through the bios and the screen works when going through the installation of Windows 10. However, once the computer reboots after the installation, the computer returns to being black. I've already replaced the motherboard and power supply for previous issues, and tried the hard drive on a separate computer to make sure it works. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments LandShark admin November 5 Hello @Ryan_Waltman Could you tell us a bit more about your system specs? Are you plugged into the motherboard for your display? Do you have a GPU? Do you have multiple monitors plugged in at one time? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Acer Swift 3 - black screen — Micro Center Acer Swift 3 - black screen Qtowens ✭ April 21 edited April 21 in Technical Support Questions Hello, Just recently purchased an Acer Swift 3 laptop. I like the laptop, except for the “ black screen” that happens occasionally. Happened last two times during Zoom video conferences and had to be shutdown and restarted. Online discussions I’ve seen only talk about possible work arounds, not what is actually causing the “black screen”, any help is appreciated in advance... 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin April 21 Hello @Qtowens Welcome to the Micro Center Community! When your laptop blackscreens, is it permanent or does the blackscreen just flash for a bit and goes away?   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Qtowens ✭ April 21 Hi there, thanks for responding. No, it does not flash and then come back on. It stays black and has to be restarted by holding down the power button for 10 seconds. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin April 22 That is certainly curious. There are several potential culprits that can cause a screen to blackout and stay that way. To rule out which ones are potential issues, I'll need a little more info. When the screen goes black during your meetings, can you still hear audio? If you can still hear audio, it means the system hasn't crashed or halted, so it's likely driver related. To that effect, we can try a new graphics driver: https://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/Driver/VGA/VGA_Intel_25.20.100.7101_W10x64_A.zip?acerid=637051762806057658&Step1=ULTRA-THIN&Step2=SWIFT&Step3=SF314-57&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_6. Also, if you can still hear audio when it goes black, can you try plugging into an external monitor or television? I am curious to see the status of the Intel HD graphics in device manager when this occurs.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Here's mine using a Samsung 1tb 970 EVO+ NVME 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMichaelB admin March 9 Pretty solid numbers for that drive. Here is what mine gets: Sadly my read performance is lacking quite a bit. Still working on solutions to pump those numbers up! 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter pittbug admin March 9 Nice! What drive set up are you using? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin March 9 I am using a single Inland 2TB NVMe SSD: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608649/inland-premium-2tb-ssd-3d-nand-m2-2280-pcie-nvme-30-x4-internal-solid-state-drive. To improve my performance and longevity of the drive, I am using a block level cache to let my excess memory cache in place of the drive. Since all mundane writes are deferred to my RAM instead of my SSD, the lifespan is improved while also improving performance on repetitive tasks and programs that I access more frequently. Here is what my RAM performance currently looks like: DDR4 4400 C19 kit clocked at 4000 c15-15-15-30 with a Command Rate of 2, 4x8GB configuration (single rank). This configuration makes a pretty significant difference in performance for things that rely on heavy repetitive usage of your disk. Open-world games that stream textures such as Grand Theft Auto, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption and Minecraft all show much more stable framerates when loading in streamed textures when completely removing a disk I/O bottleneck.  With how cheap RAM has gotten nowadays, I recommend this option to anyone looking to improve their I/O performance all around. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter sknecht ✭ March 10 dwqdwqq 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter sknecht ✭ March 10 edited March 10 I need some help. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter ryau admin March 10 sknecht said: I need some help.
