Community Article I need help reinstalling all of the drivers/software after resetting the o/s for Powerspec G356 — Micro Center I need help reinstalling all of the drivers/software after resetting the o/s for Powerspec G356 shorty123 ✭ November 11 in Technical Support Questions After resetting the o/s for my Powerspec G356, I am having problems reinstalling the software listed at http://www.powerspec.com/support/support_archive.phtml?selection=G356.  I clicked  on C->motherboard-RGB->PolychromeRGB->iAsrPolychromeRGBSetup(v1.0.42) to install it. I want to control the fan. It installed c:\Program Files (x86)\ASRock Utility\ASRRGBLED. When I tried to run AsrPolychromeRGB from the bin directory, I got the error: "This utility is not for this platform".  I don't understand this since this is from the software associated with software listed at the powerspec web site for G356.  What am I doing wrong? I also downloaded the driver for Realtek Audio (http://www.powerspec.com/support/files/psdriver_18l.zip). I unzipped the file.  When I ran the Setup app, I got an error "No driver supported in this driver package". (error code -0001) Thanks in advance for helping me out. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments LandShark admin November 11 Hello, @shorty123 Sorry to hear that you're having this issue. It's possible that the ASRRGB software may need to be updated, I'd recommend downloading directly from ASRock. https://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/z390%20phantom%20gaming%204s/index.asp#Download As for your Realtek device, I'd recommend checking your device manager to see if the device is listed. If it is, I'd recommend trying to update through the interface. Hopefully, this works for you. Let me know how things go! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Very slow performance on new Inland Performance 2TB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 4.0 x4 — Micro Center Very slow performance on new Inland Performance 2TB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 4.0 x4 Megalomac Minneapolis ✭ June 23 in Inland I purchased this PCIe 4 SSD in August and it never seemed much faster than my old SSDs.  Today I finally ran it through a few benchmarks and it scores extremely low.  I do have PCIe 4 as I have a Asus ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING motherboard paired with an AMD 3900x.  This 2tb SSD is about half full and is used as my main C: drive w/ Win10 installed.   When using userbenchmark.com, I get an average of 2000 MB/s read / 3400 MB/s write.  This is more resembles PCIe v3 speeds.  CrystalDiskMark seems to indicate that read speeds are good, but write speeds hit a max of 980 MB/s!  I am using the heatsink that came w/ this drive.  I didn't see anything in the bios to configure this drive and it works fine, except for the speed.  Any ideas? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMikeW admin June 25 I run the 1TB version of this drive with the same motherboard and CPU. It certainly does sound like it's under performing. You should not need to adjust any BIOS setting to optimized the performance of your drive.

Community Article Creating Windows 10 Installation Media on OSX — Micro Center Creating Windows 10 Installation Media on OSX TSMikeW admin July 15 edited July 28 in Windows This is a guide on various methods of creating installation media on OSX. The methods vary based on a couple of factors. Mainly the age of the system, and whether the motherboard can boot to certain file systems. Mainly ExFAT. FAT32 will work, but it’s limited to a maximum file size of 4GB, and at this point the install.wim file on the current version of Windows 10 is too large for this file system and this is the main hurdle. Microsoft has tools to work around this. Their media creation tool will format your flash drive FAT32 and split the wim file for you. DISM.exe also has ability to split and combine wim files. Unfortunately, neither of these tools are available to us on OSX without setting up a virtual machine. You can download the latest version of Windows 10 here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10  Option 1: If you’ve got a new ASUS board with an Intel chipset, you’re more than likely not going to have a problem with exFAT. I’ve also tested some Asrock boards with Intel chipsets that worked just fine as well. This makes the process quick and easy. You’ll need to format your flash drive as exFAT. You can do this in Disk Utility or via Terminal. I will detail the command via terminal below. You can open Terminal from the Utilities. Type “diskutil list” to list your drives. In the image below we see our drive is disk2.  Verify this by the volume name and capacity. Be careful, you do not want to wipe the wrong drive. Once you’re sure, type “diskutil erasedisk exfat “ESD-USB” MBR disk4” with disk4 being your flash drive. If this is not the case, correct the number on the end. Now we need to copy our installation files. Double click the ISO we downloaded earlier to mount it. It will mount as CCCOMA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV9. Our flash drive is labeled ESD-USB. Type “cp -rp /Volumes/CCCOMA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV9/* /Volumes/ESD-USB/”. We’re using the copy command (cp) with the switches recursive (to copy all sub directory files) and p (Preserves file attributes). Let the files copy, this will take up to 20 minutes. It’s important to note there is not status indicator here, you’ll get a flashing cursor. At this point, wait until it finishes.  Your prompt will return once it does. Finally eject the flash drive, connect it to your computer and power it on. If this is a new build with an empty drive, it should boot automatically. From here, you’re just doing a normal clean install of Windows 10. If not, you’ll need to use the boot menu key and select the flash drive from there. We’re booting UEFI in this guide. From here, you’re just doing a normal clean install of Windows 10. Please see our guide on this:  https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/2288/how-to-perform-a-clean-install-of-windows-10#latest Option 2: Part 1: OSX If you followed the guide above and your flash drive wasn’t detected, apparently your motherboard cannot boot from an ExFAT partition. We’ll need to use FAT32. In this guide we’re going to focus on doing this in a way that does not use third party tools to split the wim file. First we’ll need to create a folder  to store our installation files. I created a folder on the desktop called “Windows10”. From here, we’ll copy the files from the mounted ISO file. You can do this in finder, or via terminal. Type: “cp -r /Volumes/CCOMA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV9/* ~/Desktop/Windows10/”. Now, we need to navigate to this new folder where the files were copied via terminal. Open terminal and type: “cd Desktop\Windows10\Sources”. The prompt should confirm you’re in the sources folder. Next we’ll need to split the wim file. Remember, we need to get the file size under 4GB for FAT32. We’ll type, “sudo split -b 3000m install.wim”. It’s important to follow the syntax exactly, the m for “Megabyte” must be lower case. This will split our wim file into two files labeled “xaa” and “xab”. This is much like copying files, it will take some time to process. Wait for the prompt to return. Then delete install.wim from the Windows10\Sources folder. Now we need to format our flash drive to FAT32. You can do this from Disk Utility or via Terminal by typing ”diskutil erasedisk fat32 “ESD-USB” MBR disk4”. Next, we’ll copy our files to our newly formatted flash drive. We’ll type “cp -r ~/Desktop/Windows10/* /Volumes/ESD-USB/”. We’ll wait for it to copy, this will take some time. Once done, we’re finished with the OSX side. Eject the flash drive and connect it to your PC. Part 2: WinPE We’ll boot to the flash drive, either through our boot menu, or automatically if there are no other devices to boot to. Now we need to format our internal hard drive to be imaged from this media, before we copy over the files and image it. Make sure your data is backed up and any drives with important data are disconnected. We will need to wipe your main hard drive that you’ll be installing Windows to in advance. To open command prompt press”Shift + F10” from the “Install Now” page. Well type the following commands: diskpart list disk (find your hard drive, it should be obvious by the capacity) select disk # (# being the number of the drive, most likely 0) convert GPT create partition efi size=100 format quick fs=fat32 label="System" assign letter="S" create partition msr size=16 create partition primary  shrink minimum=450 format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows 10" assign letter="W" create partition primary format quick fs=ntfs label="WinRE" set id="de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac" gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001 Once you’re done. Type: “list part” and verify the partition scheme matches the image below. Also type “list vol” so we can verify our assigned drive letters. Once confirmed, type "exit" to exit diskpart. Next we’re going to copy out files on to our newly formatted and labeled W volume. We’ll type “xcopy  /h /c /y C:\Sources\xa* W:\”. In this case our flash drive was labeled as C. This will be corrected automatically when we reboot. Your main drive will be C as normal, not W. This command will copy both the xaa and xab files we created when we split the install.wim file. Asterisk is a wildcard, that searches for and copies any file in the directory that starts with xa. Once again, wait a few minutes for the files to copy. Now we’re going to merge the two halves of the wim file we split earlier. We’ll need to navigate to the W root folder. Type “W:”, verify the prompt indicates your in this directory. Now type “type xaa xab > Install.wim”. Wait a few moments while the two large files halves are merged together. Now we’ll need to image our drive from the wim file. Type”dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:W:\install.wim /index:1 /ApplyDir:W:\”. This will take a few moments to complete. Last step is to make our new windows installation bootable. We used a GPT partition and we’re booting via UEFI so we’ll type “W:\Windows\System32\bcdboot W:\Windows”. Finally, remove the flash drive and reboot. If you want to do this via command prompt type “W:\Windows\System32\shutdown -r -t 0”, or just restart the system with the power button. Once it reboots, it should load of windows and right into the out of box experience for you to create your user account. FAQ Is there an easier way to create the partition scheme, rather than typing in all those commands? You can run it via a script. Copy the following and safe it as a .txt file to your installation flash drive:  select disk 0 convert GPT create partition efi size=100 format quick fs=fat32 label="System" assign letter="S" create partition msr size=16 create partition primary  shrink minimum=450 format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows 10" assign letter="W" create partition primary format quick fs=ntfs label="WinRE" set id="de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac" gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001 From there you'll execute it by typing "diskpart /s ". Make sure to verify the number of your drive with "list disk" and modify it accordingly. So if we called the file formatdisk.txt and we established our flash drive was labeled as D, we would type: diskpart /s D:\formatdisk.txt I'm not sure if a file transferred or copy. How can I can check from command line or terminal? For command line the command is "dir". For terminal the command is "ls". You'll need to navigate to the folder you want to view. The command is the same on both, "cd " for change directory. After typing "W:\Windows\System32\bcdboot W:\Windows" I receive the error "Failure when initializing library system volume". It's not able to locate your system volume. We'll need to mount it and specify the path. In my example my system volume was 3. Check 'list vol' and correct as necessary. Type the following: Diskpart select disk 0 select vol 3 assign letter=S exit W:\Windows\System32\bcdboot W:\Windows /s S: /f ALL Related Articles:  How to perform a clean install of Windows 10 How to Create a Windows 10 Installation Flash Drive Keywords: usb stick, bootable usb drive, diskutil erasedisk ms dos, boot camp assistance, create bootable usb, install disk, windows 10 iso file, downloads folder, windows 10 bootable usb 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TanNguyen93 ✭ August 14 So i finished everything on the terminal on my mac like you said in part one, but when i went to boot up the windows install on my pc it gave me an error saying "Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specific image file [install.wim] does not exist.

Refer to the portion referring to "xcopy  /h /c /y C:\Sources\xa* W:\" and the "type xaa xab > Install.wim". This copies the two halves the wim file to the W: drive, where because it's NTFS, we can exceed the four gigabyte file size, and merge it back into the install.wim, we need to use to deploy our OS. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Would appreciate someone to look over 2 ideas, and heat sink help? — Micro Center Would appreciate someone to look over 2 ideas, and heat sink help? Eye_laws_dug_aim NY ✭ August 4 in Help Choosing Parts I've got an Intel build and a AMD build that I worked out the best I could. The budget I was thinking was around 1,200 - 1,500.  This is mostly a gaming PC I would say although I do lots of odd random stuff on here and usually have music or videos going while I play games. I play heavy Simulation games more than flashy shooters although I'd like to be able to play a range of games. I like the NBA so graphics do matter too. I also only choose parts that were for sure in stock at my local store. Links to the builds below. Some games I play: Crusader Kings 2, Stellaris, Bannerlord, NBA 2k series I think I'm happy with the 7 series in the Intel and AMD lines for CPU, I've thought about the 5's but nah. When I was building both I noticed my options for motherboards were different and that sort of through me off. I get why, but look at all the different specs was too much for me. I'm a little worried I'll end up making a poor selection, what do you think of the ones I choose? I went cheap on this end mostly because I didn't know what to really look for, so I could spend more here if you think another is better. One thing I do is record music, and my current computer had no ability to use USB 3 Type C connectors. I looked these seem common now which is good but those little things are what I'm hoping I don't end up missing.  There are different brands that sell similar parts, if you see any I've chosen but know of another that is better, please let me know, I have little idea on which brands do what well. Is my power supply a good choice?  Really need help with cooling. Have zero idea how many or what to get, please help. I really dont want to get into liquid cooling, or any colored lights. The case I chose is also super simple and basic. Do I need water cooling with this type of PC? Is it complicated? Is the case decent? Any other pointers, please let me know, this is my first time building my own! Crazy stuff.  Intel idea https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=2d7b2981-39c6-46c9-a50c-63d357ba5f4b AMD idea https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=a58808eb-a090-42e6-909d-29013a859fe8 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin August 4 edited August 4 Both builds are pretty solid, wouldn't have any complaints for either of them really.  As far as the motherboards are concerned, provided you choose one that's compatible most motherboards will work just fine. Brand isn't that important, you can find and low quality boards from the same brand. It's more about the individual product than anything. The primary question is what kind of connectivity and features you want. Since you have USB Type C you want to use, you'll definitely want to make sure the board you choose has a front panel USB-C header, not all boards include them. The board on the Intel build includes one, but the board on the AMD build does not. These are a couple boards tat would be a good alternative at a similar price that comes with a front-panel USB-C header: https://www.microcenter.com/product/611269/gigabyte-aorus-elite-wifi-x570-amd-am4-atx-motherboard (doesn't have a rear USB-C) https://www.microcenter.com/product/625047/msi-b550-mag-tomahawk-amd-am4-atx-motherboard  Water cooling is not a requirement, but that case can definitely support it. The CPU cooler that comes with the 3700X is actually pretty solid and will be sufficient for stock use, but you can use an aftermarket cooler if you'd like. For the 10700k, I'd recommend something like a Noctua NH-U14s or NH-D15 for an air cooler, or you could use a 240mm AIO liquid cooler like a Corsair H100i or an EVGA Kraken X53   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Eye_laws_dug_aim NY ✭ August 4 edited August 4 I just noticed the case I had selected has no opening in the front for an optical drive. Hmm, is that the norm now? The build maker didn't alert me that the case was not compatible with an optical drive, but when i tried the same build on PC Part Picker, I had no option of picking an optical drive which makes sense.  I hope the rest of the selections will all work together,  I assumed the builder was only allowing me to pick parts that would work. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 5 Yeah, that's pretty much then norm now with new computer cases. We do carry some that have optical drive slots, just not a lot.  Everything else in your builds were compatible.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

admin April 20 @JADO have you attempted to manually add them by going to Configure > Slots > Add? You should be able to leave the GPU value at -1. From there, add a slot for each potential GPU connected to the system, then save. They should reappear. If that doesn't work, you may be missing the GPUs.txt file in your [email protected] Client AppData directory. If that file is missing, visit this page, select all, save it into a notepad text file named GPUs.txt and place it in the %AppData%\FAHClient directory (Windows + R to open Run prompt, type that directory in for quick access). GPUs.txt page: https://apps.foldingathome.org/GPUs.txt Hopefully this works, if not, let me know. I'll try to troubleshoot more with you. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JADO ✭ April 20 edited April 20 Thanks for the help.  I am pretty knowledgeable on this stuff and at this point I am guessing it a Windows issue....but, I have no way to know.  I have tried to add them manually but since FAH sees no GPU's the add disappears as soon as I exit and go back to the settings sheet.  I have also looked at the GPUs.txt file and it is where it is supposed to be  and again everything worked correctly for over 2 weeks.  The cards have two bios's on them. You can select them with a switch.  one was modified for crypto mining the other is stock..  I was using the stock bios and everything worked fine.  I switched to crypto bios (to see if I could improve speed) and everything still worked but it was not stable.  So, I switched back to standard bios which had been working and after the switch back Folding stopped finding the cards.  Again, they show up in device manager and it reports they are working normally.  When it stopped was when I started uninstalling and installing card drivers and FAH in different combinations but have not been able to get them to reconnect.. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JADO ✭ April 20 Thanks for helping.  I installed 7.6.9 today and I was able to manually add the GPU's.  Problem seems to be solved for now.  Thanks again. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin April 20 Interesting that it only started after swapping to and from the VBIOS using the physical toggle switch. When you nuked the GPU drivers, did you use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller)? Just wanting to make sure every registry entry tied to those drivers were removed prior to reinstallation. Can you provide the name of the exact model of RX 580 you're using? I'll see if I have any lying around that I can try to replicate the issue with.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JADO ✭ April 20 edited April 20 Actually, I don't think the VBIOS had anything to do with it.  I think it related to the latest FAH updates.. but again I am not sure.  I did use DDU (full discosure..I did not run it in Safe Mode) then I used Regedit and deleted all remnants of FAH I could find.  Still don't know why it would not find the cards after that  but after installing 7.6.9 today I was able to find and add them manually.  With 6 RX580s and a i5 9600K 6 core processor should I have any problems running all 6 cards?  Can I also safely use some of 6 cpu cores in addition to the GPU's?  Adding cards manually, FAH also added my Intel 630 motherboard graphics  GPU for processing.  I removed it because I figured that would just cause problems.  I guess what I am asking is with the hardware I have what do thin the optimal folding configuration for folding should be here?  Thanks  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin April 20 Glad to hear the GPU's are recognized now. As for the hardware configuration, [email protected] recommends leaving one processing core per GPU. Since your 9600k has exactly 6 cores, I wouldn't recommend folding on the CPU at all as it will be of very little gain and may be detrimental to your GPU's scores, which are weighted far more heavily in terms of value. I don't see any issue running the Intel iGPU as it simply uses 2MB of cache and some spare system memory, so it shouldn't impact your stability at all. It might not score all that well, but it shouldn't hurt anything either.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JADO ✭ April 20 My thoughts exactly.  Thank you for confirming.  Appreciate the help. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin April 20 My pleasure.

Need your input on build Boiler_Guy ✭ July 28 in Gamers I don't game right now at all but love RPG or crash and smash games on play station.  I need your help to see if I am over killing this for a nub like myself .  I used Assassin's Creed Odyssey as a base for what I want to play.  Is there a way to say some $$$ but still have room to grow as games get even better? Am I missing something and need to suck it up and drop a little more $$$?

There's some areas where you're going overkill and we could save some cost to get better performance out of your system.  32GB of RAM is way more than you need just for gaming, 16GB would be plenty. I also wouldn't recommend the 3800X. There's not enough performance benefit to justify the price increase over the 3700X, it's only 1-2% in the best case scenario. I would either go with the 3700X, or if you're exclusively gaming the i5-10600k instead since it's superior in gaming applications.  Windows 10 Pro isn't really necessary either unless it has specific functions you need. Pro editions of Windows are really designed for business use and most home users don't need the extra features it provides.  You could save cost in other areas to upgrade your GPU as well. The PC-O11 Dynamic is a great case, but if you switched to something like a Fractal Design Meshify C, you can save some on the case and lose some of the extra fans.  I would personally do something like this: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=701e6ad5-3f6a-4c52-9244-b6b79ee5a013 By making the changes I listed, we have a system with an RTX 2070 Super which is a big upgrade over the RTX 2060. We also switch to a nice 2TB total of SSD storage with two 1TB NVMe drives, and a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive for backup or extra storage if you need. The case may not be quite as pretty as the PC-O11 but you'll still have good airflow and personally I think the Meshify C still looks fine. If you really want the PC-O11, you can get rid of one of the SSDs.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Boiler_Guy ✭ July 29 Thank you.  This is exactly the kind of input I was looking for.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

I dont have a 4k monitor dont think i need a higher card. I like a good air cooled case like maybe meshify c. I am not into RGB dont really like paying for something I am never gonna look at. Also I am not into gigabyte products their customer service is horrible other than that I am open for some builds. Thank you very much guys. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TheITDad ✭✭ April 14 So the build I did for you should do everything you want and leaves a bit of wiggle room for you.  Currently I have the Ryzen 9 3900x because your budget allowed for it even after having 5 tb of storage space.  But if you feel like that's just to much for what you need or want to get even more storage or put an actual windows key with the build you can always just swap out the cpu for the R7 3700x.  Also put a nice noctua cooler in there because the R9 3900x can get a tad bit warm especially if you plan on doing some 4k video editing and such.  So even if  you go with the 3700x I would keep the cpu cooler.

You see the voltage draw, 47W from the slot and 75W from the PCIe(max on a 6 pin). I assume if you change that to #2 it's also in the same range. That would put you in the 200W range. 2070's load at 200-215 watts, so you really are at 100% TDP. This isn't throttling, this is just the power limit of the card and shouldn't incur any performance issues.  What are your temps at? Have you monitored the frequencies in a game? Do so in windowed mode, try to correlate if there's a sudden drop in the cards frequency to correspond to your framerate drops. Rubber banding is generally more of an issue with latency than performance. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JD3 ✭ August 24 Thanks.... I have my frame rates stay in the 140-150 most of the time... and the temps are usually 40-50 C but have climbed in to high 60s and I haven’t noticed anything concerning at the time of issues I’ve listed.... also I do have a gaming router and 400 MB’s connection speed... just wanted to make sure I wasn’t bottle necking or damaging anything...

I would make a few suggestions. The power supply is a bit more than you need, but I don't think y ou can really go wrong by investing in a high quality power supply. For the memory kits, it's just whether your want RGB or not. I'm fairly certain they're both Hynix C-Die, and it's pretty solid. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

They offer a range of high-end systems, and in their words, they are “a private self-funded company that is shaping the future of the PC, pioneering new and better solutions while always remaining inspired to offer excellence to its customers” (sourced from https://maingear.com/about/). Maingear is still committed to this goal in 2020, and today I’ll be going over one of their latest offerings: The Maingear Element 3. First Impressions:  The Element 3 is pretty subtle and simple in its design. At first glance, you probably wouldn’t know that this is a high-powered gaming machine. The chassis is made out of the same magnesium alloy the original Element was made with, with a dark matte-black finish. The construction is very solid overall, and compared to other gaming laptops with similar specs, it’s a little thinner and lighter than you might expect. It doesn’t have a gigantic battery hanging out the back or crazy lines with aggressive angles on the outside, so if you’re looking for something with beefy specs that can fly under the radar, this is where you should look. With that said, let's really get into this laptop. If you'd like to skip ahead to a specific category, click the link below to jump to that section: Specifications Peripherals (Display, Touchpad, Keyboard, etc...) Software (NODE Control Center) Performance Final Thoughts 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin June 15 Specifications The main difference between the Element 3 and original Element is that the video card is no longer the Max-Q version, which is a weaker, lower power consumption part made specifically for thin and light laptops. The Element 3’s video card is essentially equivalent to the normal RTX 2070 Super you’d find in a desktop, but with somewhat reduced clock speeds. Overall it’s a big upgrade over the previous generation Element. The i7-10875H also sees an extra two cores added vs. the previous i7-9750H. It features a healthy amount of options for I/O: three USB 3.1 Type-A Ports, a micro SD card reader, ethernet port, HDMI port and the main highlight, a Thunderbolt 3/USB 3.1 Type-C port. The Thunderbolt 3 port is particularly useful: it will support any USB-C device and can be used for things like high speed data transfer or connecting high resolution displays.  Whether you’re gaming or are a professional looking for workstation performance, this is a powerful package with a sleek design. Obviously the specs are good, there’s no debating that. But you’re not just interested in specs, you want to know what it’s like to actually use one of these systems. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin June 15 Peripherals Display The first thing you see when you open a system is the display. The Element 3 features a 240Hz (yes, you read that correctly) IPS panel with a resolution of 1920x1080p. IPS panels are becoming more popular for gaming purposes as framerates and response times on them have improved, and of course they’re always good for the design oriented due to the high color accuracy and wide range of viewing angles. The brightness on the display is quite good even in high-light environments. The high refresh rate makes even things as basic as scrolling down a webpage incredibly smooth, and of course in games it’s excellent. While it would be nice to have the resolution at 1440p, it makes sense to stay at 1080p given that this is a laptop marketed towards gamers, and higher resolutions would make it harder to push those crazy high framerates. Overall, the display is very high quality no matter what you’re using this system for. Keyboard Despite using the same chassis, the keyboard in the Element 3 has changed from the previous model. The original Element featured an opto-mechanical style switch for its keyboard, which had good tactile feedback and a longer keystroke than a typical laptop. The Element 3 has now changed to the more common chiclet-style keyboards you can find on many other laptops. It still has good tactile feedback, but this time with a shorter keystroke. Personally speaking, I can type about 100-110 words per minute on this keyboard, which is just short of my typical speeds on a normal desktop keyboard. It even features a full number pad. It’s pretty solid as far as laptop keyboards go. The keyboard also features an RGB backlight which can be controlled through the NODE software Maingear includes on the system. Touchpad The touchpad is smooth to the touch and overall pretty responsive. The click feels solid and there wasn’t any weird flex or dead zones anywhere. Palm-rejection was also very good: the heel of my thumb on both hands rested on the top corners of the touchpad, but I never got any false clicks or strange cursor movements while typing. What I did notice is that when I’m using the cursor, it sometimes was a little sensitive with double-clicks or click-to-drag, even on the low sensitivity setting, but that may just be me not being used to laptops as much and misclicking on my own. It didn’t cause any real problems and otherwise the touchpad was good.  Webcam The Element 3 comes with a webcam, as you might expect. You’ll probably notice that it’s not positioned in a typical fashion: most laptops will have the webcam centered on the top part of the monitor, but the Element 3 instead places the webcam centered below the monitor which might take some getting used to. Otherwise, the webcam is pretty normal for a laptop and operates at 720p/30FPS. Speakers The speakers are pretty clear and can get fairly loud without any distortion, so they’ll work well for general use. If you’re gaming (and with this laptop, you probably are) I would still recommend external speakers or a nice headset simply because soundstage can only go so far in any laptop, but otherwise the speakers are good and will do what you need them to. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin June 15 Software One of the main highlights of the Maingear systems is that they don’t come with any bloatware like you’d get purchasing a laptop from a larger manufacturer. The one thing they do include is the NODE Control Center software, which allows you to control a few different settings on the system (such as the keyboard lighting), as well as some hardware monitoring tools. We have a full guide on using the NODE software coming soon, so stay tuned for that, but there’s one important setting I’m going to go over here, because it’s related to the performance of the system: Operating Mode. Operating Mode is essentially a power management setting that will increase or decrease power limits for your system.  Office mode is the “low power” mode, Game Mode would be “balanced” and Beast Mode is “max performance.” For general use, Office mode is more than sufficient. For gaming or more workstation heavy use, you’ll want to switch to Game Mode or Beast Mode to make sure you get full performance out of the system. Office mode lets you set a specific fan curve for cooling, while the other two utilize a pre-set fan curve you cannot change. If you are gaming or doing some other CPU heavy task, turn on Fan Boost, because the CPU will get very hot, very quick and even on Beast Mode the cooling fan won’t operate at 100% speed without turning Fan Boost on (it’s quite loud at full blast).  One thing to note on this is that these settings are only in play while the system is plugged in. If you unplug the charger, it will default to a different power setting independent of Operating Mode to preserve battery life, but at the cost of performance. This is typical of any laptop and doesn’t make a difference for general use, but in resource intense scenarios like gaming the performance loss is very noticeable. Speaking of performance, I should probably talk about how it does actually perform in the real world 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin June 15 Performance Everyday Use For general use, it’s blazing fast, as it should be. The NVMe SSD makes booting the system and loading applications extremely quick, and the fan stays very quiet a majority of the time. The 6-cell 7900mAH/91.24Wh battery should net you about 4-6 hours of battery life under light usage. I tested this at max brightness and on max performance in Windows power settings, with 2-3 Chrome tabs open at a time, so if you use battery saver settings and lower brightness, you might be able to extend it further. Under heavy use, battery life can quickly go down to two hours or less depending on exactly what you’re doing, so for the power users out there, keep that in mind. Gaming Of course, we couldn’t review a gaming laptop without playing any games. I tested a few different popular titles, and all games were tested at max or near-max settings, using the Beast Mode setting in NODE with Fan Boost turned on. I’ll mention again: you want to turn fan boost on while gaming. Even though the fan will be loud, it will help with cooling, and you’ll need everything you can get.  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Modern Warfare is the first game I tested, and performed quite well. Motion Blur was disabled and RTX was turned off, but otherwise all settings were at max. Across many different maps in the normal multiplayer playlists (no Ground War, no Warzone) I consistently got 100-120FPS. The CPU immediately hit 90C and started thermal throttling, and evened out around 3.8GHz. This comes with the territory for gaming laptops, especially ones that try to stay as thin as they can. While the cooling system in the Element 3 is good, at the end of the day there is a tradeoff for it being on the thinner side, which is more heat. Fortunately, the 2070 Super stayed around 80C so it performed quite well and I was able to maintain stable FPS during my whole play session. Some of you out there may be concerned with input lag since it’s an IPS panel, but there was no input lag that I could notice. The response times on this panel are pretty darn good.  Overwatch Overwatch was the second title I tested, and unsurprisingly it performed very well. On Ultra settings FPS ranged anywhere from 150-240 FPS, shifting frequently depending on exactly what was happening on the screen. Despite the FPS fluctuating a lot, there wasn’t any stuttering or screen tearing and everything was quite smooth. The CPU faired a little better this time, but still throttled down to about 4.0GHz at 90C.  Rocket League I decided to throw Rocket League in here as an example of a light-requirement example for a competitive title, and performance was excellent as I expected. I was able to maintain a full 240 FPS at maximum settings with no dips. The CPU still hit 90C and throttled down to about 4.2-4.3GHz, but as you can see the throttling doesn’t really matter in this game at all. In any of the lighter graphics requirement games, this laptop will have more than enough power. Monster Hunter World Monster Hunter World is one of my personal favorite games and is the most graphically intense title I tested. It’s not the single most graphically intense game on the market, but I hold it as a good example of what this laptop is really capable of, and it actually performed better than I anticipated. I disabled Motion Blur and Volume Rendering Quality in the graphics settings, enabled the High Resolution Texture Pack and left all other settings at maximum. The CPU throttled down to about 3.7-3.8GHz this time around, and FPS ranged from 80-100 in every zone. There were two instances in one hunt where FPS suddenly dropped below 60 and then quickly went back to normal, however I think that was more likely a driver related issue than it is with the laptop itself. I was very impressed with the performance in this game, and the display really got to shine here. Monster Hunter has some truly breathtaking environments and the color representation and picture quality offered by the IPS panel really did this game justice.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin June 15 Final Thoughts Overall, this is a great system. In particular I was really surprised by the performance of the display while gaming. IPS panels once upon a time had a reputation of poor response times, but with the high-quality IPS panels many manufacturers are putting out these days that’s clearly becoming a thing of the past. If you’re looking for a high-performance system that doesn’t come with all the extra bloatware and overly aggressive design language, look no further. The Element 3 is a sleek machine with great build quality and excellent performance.  2 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter nobbyboi ✭ September 23 Any idea when stores will carry the 15.6” Element again?

They have those two models but also briefly had the 17” element with 8 -core cpu and 2070 Super. I’m more interested in the 15” element (not the vector) with the 2070 super. It’s available on Maingear’s website, but I’d prefer to buy through Microcenter. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter LandShark admin September 30 Hey @nobbyboi I belive that this is the item that you were speaking of: https://www.microcenter.com/product/621985/maingear-element-3-173-gaming-laptop-computer---black It's possible that we'll be getting more inventory. That item is something of which we typically get frequent shipments.

Community Article First Time PC Builder - Any suggestions or tips for my build? — Micro Center First Time PC Builder - Any suggestions or tips for my build? EduardoH43 ✭ June 4 in Help Choosing Parts Hello there. I am a first time PC builder, and as such would like some pointers or tips regarding part compatibility for my PC. I have picked out a few parts with Micro Center's PC builder beforehand, and have posted the details below. I intend to use this for playing video games such as Destiny 2, Warframe, or ARK (being able to handle at least higher end settings at 1440p with 60fps), with the additional use of being able to handle entry level 3D modeling/rendering and 2D art programs.

Thank you in advance. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin June 4 Hello @EduardoH43! Welcome to the Community.  There is one main thing I did want to mention. Ryzen third generation is known for scaling well with memory speed, with DDR4-3600 being the sweetspot. At this pricing, I'd definitely recommend getting a set of 3600 memory, it should only be a minor cost increase and it can have a noticeable performance impact.  I might also recommend upgrading the CPU cooler. For gaming the Wraith Prism that the 3900X comes with should be just fine, but if you're getting into 3D modeling and rendering you can potentially put a pretty high load on your CPU and you could see temperatures climb pretty high. If you want to stick with an air cooler, the Noctua NH-D15, NH-U14S, and NH-U12A are all good options to go for. If you're interest in a liquid cooler, a 240mm AIO option like the NZXT Kraken X53 or the Corsair H100i would be good as well.   The only other thing I'd really question is the addition of Windows 10 Pro. There are a lot of great features in Pro but they're only really necessary for a business or enterprise system. If there are specific features it has that you need, then you can just ignore this part, but for general consumer use 10 Home is typically sufficient.  Otherwise, the system looks good overall and you will definitely be able to game at 1440p/60FPS reliably. The 2080ti is the best gaming card on the market (until NVIDIA releases the 3000 series) and it will handle anything you can throw at it.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Powerspec G460 no longer boots — Micro Center Powerspec G460 no longer boots gamer0farmer ✭ April 28 in Technical Support Questions Computer locked up and required a hard reboot.  Ever since, it no longer completes the boot sequence.  Upon powerup, it displays a black screen saying "Powerspec" with a rotating circle of dots at the bottom.  Stays on this screen for about 60 seconds with rotating dots, then automatically cycles off and back on.  Repeats. Checked the BIOS and it recognizes the boot drive 500GB SSD in the M2 slot 1.  Can specify to boot from this (is set as default anyway) but behaves as described.  It feels like a bad sector (or whatever for SSD) in a critical boot function on the drive.  I do not have another computer with a M2 slot for testing.  Don't know if it can be recovered or if I need a new SSD.  This is a gaming rig, so I lose no real data, but I have slow broadband so rebuilding steam library would be a chore. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin April 28 edited April 28 Hello @gamer0farmer!  Welcome to the Micro Center Community! I will agree with you that it is a bad boot on the M.2, however it could either be a corrupted Windows installation caused by Windows, or corrupted by a bad sector on the M.2.  Have you tried doing a Clean Install of Windows 10 onto the M.2?  Ideally the clean install works and everything returns to normal.  If the Clean Install does not work, it is looking to be a bad SSD and you may want to swap it out for another SSD.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter gamer0farmer ✭ April 28 would the clean install reformat the entire drive or just a boot partition?  Trying to avoid blanking out my games library, but not being able to boot is the bigger issue here. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin April 28 A clean install would be completely reformatting the drive and doing a fresh install of Windows. If you have a set of Windows installation media, you could boot from it and attempt to do an automatic repair that way.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMikeW admin April 28 It would wipe out the entire drive. As other alternatives you can manually rebuild the boot sector. I would boot from windows 10 media. If you need it, you can create media here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 First, lets just check the drive. Go to the repair options then Troubleshoot > Advanced > Command Prompt. We'll be doing most of our work from there. Check disk. Type: chkdsk /r Let see if that finds any issues with your drive. If it seems fine, try running system restore from the recovery environment. Your boot sector seems intact, it tries to boot, but never successfully loads and eventually crashes. Probably the drive in my opinion. To rebuild the boot sector: Comments are in parenthesis. Type: diskpart  list disk (Lists your drives) select disk # (We want to select the the M.2 drive in question) list volume (Lists volumes on the selected disk) select volume # (We're looking for the system partition. It'll state this in the description, it will not have a letter assigned.) Assign letter= (We can use L here for the as an example. Any letter that isn't in use is fine.) cd /d :\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\ (We're just navigating to the location of the bcd file) ren bcd bcd.bak (We're getting the original bcd file out of the way) bcdboot C:\Windows /s : /f all (System partition being L in our example. It's rewriting the bcd file) From here try to reboot the system. If it's the drive we may encounter an error at any point here, which could leave is a less bootable state. Backup first, be prepared to reinstall the OS beyond this. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.
