Community Article Computer won't start- new psu, ram, cpu, and mobo — Micro Center Computer won't start- new psu, ram, cpu, and mobo mwolodko ✭ September 22 in Technical Support Questions Randomly shortly after a windows update my computer came up and I was watching something on Youtube when both of my monitors went out. My computer was still running. I powered if off and tried to start again. it beeped a few times rapidly and then powered off. Shortly after I smelt a burning smell and opened up my computer to see if anything was noticeable. I found  nothing.  After doing some short research I figured I'd get a new PSU. Note--- This computer setup had been working fine for 12 years with only a swapped out graphics card and added the  coolmaster hypo evo 212 to the cpu The power supply( 650 power spec gq)worked in my guest computer.. but after setting it  up in my box I got a single beep or bzzt from the power supply. I'm assuming this means it turned off to prevent overcurrent/heat etc. I then used an extra computer and pulled off everything except power to mobo and cpu. The guest computer's fans spun but mine didn't. Finally, I was like.. well then it is the cpu or the mobo. I got new cpu, mobo, ram. Popped them all in and same issue. I then ran the same setup with just cpu and mobo power and nothing. The computer doesn't start just a single beep from the PSU. No fans spin at all. The CPU is i5 10600k lga 1200 with the tuf gaming z-490 plus mobo both new. I tried hundreds of things..  power with CPU not mobo, taking out fans, taking out usb, unplugged my heatsink, removed the graphics card and ram, tried one stick of ram in the correct slot, cleaned the dust, made sure the mobo wasn't too tightly screwed in or possibly shorting itself, tried different surge protector and outlets, double checked that the powerleds, pwr sw, and reset were all on the correct spots. The worst part is I'm still not sure what the problem is. Any help would be great thanks. Mike 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Processor swap — Micro Center Processor swap Braydenmabry8 ✭ June 22 in Customer Service Questions If I come in and buy a processor, can micro center swap out the processor for me? Cause idk how. And if so I’m what time frame? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin June 22 Yes, we can do CPU installation/swaps. CPU installation is typically $79.99 for labor, time frame is going to vary depending on how busy the service desk is when you come in. If you come in early and they're not really busy, we may be able to do it same-day, but with how things have been lately I would anticipate needing to leave it with us temporarily and come back at a later date. A lot of our stores have been incredibly busy.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Braydenmabry8 ✭ June 22 TSTonyV said: Yes, we can do CPU installation/swaps.

Welcome to the Community.  Unfortunately we don't do individual switch repairs like that. If the keyboard was purchased from us and you purchased a replacement plan on it that's still valid, we could do a replacement on the unit.

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. Community Article PC Spec Swap to a different PC — Micro Center PC Spec Swap to a different PC Kyan ✭ October 31 in Customer Service Questions So i'm trying to figure out if I can swap all the GPU, CPU, and etc into a different PC. I have a ROG G20AJ. I have done 1 upgrade with the GPU. Upgraded from a 760 to a Nvidia 2070 Super. But there's a problem. It seems to be overheating with every single game other than CSGO, and lower graphic games. I can't run Cold War Black Ops, No Man's Sky, and Phasmophobia without my pc crashing and turning off the monitor. I'm trying to see if I can just almost fully get another pc but still like the specs on mine. Thank you, Kyan 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin October 31 Hello @Kyan Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community!  Taking a look at this PC, the motherboard is pretty similar to a laptop and it looks to be a proprietary form rather than a normal sized motherboard.  The motherboard that would fit that processor (assuming it's not soldered in) is also not in production since it is a 4th Gen Intel Processor and requires an outdated motherboard for it to fit.  Since most of the parts for the PC are similar to a laptop-esque build, you are going to have troubles trying to move hardware out of this build and putting them into another build.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Kyan ✭ October 31 So could I go to Micro Center and they could do it for me? If not would just buying a whole new pc be better... 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSPhillipT admin October 31 We would be unable to move it to a new case due to the proprietary form factor.  It would require heavy modding of a case to fit it and that is something we do not do.  I think buying a prebuild PowerSpec B class is the best option.  It doesn't have a graphics card but you do have one you can use, so you can put it in.  All the parts used are standard parts as well so upgrading in the future is easier.  I think something like this would be a great pairing with your 2070 Super 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Can I swap out Video Card on G464? — Micro Center Can I swap out Video Card on G464? Ceazy ✭ May 20 edited May 20 in Customer Service Questions Just recently purchased A Powerspec G464, having graphics card issues, rather not return the PC, but rather swap out graphics card with an Nvidia card if possible. Do you think this would be a problem? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMichaelB admin May 20 Welcome to the forum, @Ceazy. Unfortunately we wouldn't be able to swap the GPU from a Radeon RX5700 XT to an Nvidia graphics card of equivalent speed. Warranty support would only cover replacing the defective component with the exact same kind of GPU.  If you prefer Nvidia GPU's with AMD processors, the closest performing system we would carry would be the PowerSpec G706. Keep in mind that this system comes with an 8 core 3700X, not a 12 core 3900X like the one configured in your G464 and comes with half of the memory. The plus side is that the G706 is $300 cheaper than the G464, so if you wanted to upgrade with the remaining difference in price, you'd have some spare budget left to do so. If you'd like assistance to troubleshoot your graphics card issues, I'd be happy to help with that as well. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Ceazy ✭ May 20 TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, @Ceazy.

If the culprit is the video card itself, we can try reseating it or even installing it in a different PCIe slot, but if it turns out to be a hardware issue, the card will need to be replaced.  If it turns out to be an EDID issue with your monitor, this can be a nightmare to address. It requires editing EDID information to fix any corruption that may have occurred. This is also extremely rare, so I am doubtful that this is the issue. You can always try a different monitor or even a television to rule this out, as if the issue persists with any other monitor you'll know it's not your monitor itself. If using another monitor resolves the issue, try a different cable just to be safe. If that doesn't fix it, I would advise returning or RMA'ing the monitor as it's going to be much easier than trying to fix EDID corruption. If you do find yourself at your PC later, check the event viewer after you experience this sleep issue. Look for anything occurring under Windows Logs > System around the time of the issue and let us know what you see. It might help us narrow down the issue as well. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Ceazy ✭ May 20 TSMichaelB said: Ceazy said: TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, @Ceazy.

Alright tried some things when I got home, verified I had the most up to date graphics driver, changed out the hdmi cord to the mini dp cord, also did the fresh install of Windows and made sure it was up to date. Did a restart and I didnt have a black screen finally, the next test is to wait for it to sleep and see if I can wake it without a black screen. If that happens then when have a winner and I will be happy. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

A dock is more meant to add functionality to a laptop. And unless you have USB C with DP Alt mode, you would be required to install software for the dock, which would be a problem.

You could open either Windows Powershell or Command Prompt and run this command: wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey This will display your current license key. Write this down or snap a photo of it. You could also download and install ShowKeyPlus from the Microsoft store here. Once you run this program it will display the license key as well. You will be able to copy the OEM key here as well. As for your drivers, you will be able to reinstall everything from scratch once you install Windows again. I recommend starting with the Chipset drivers for your motherboard then move onto the GPU drivers. Then you could check device manager and install any other drivers that Windows cannot find on its own. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Ok, I found something on eBay that I think will work.  Thanks for the info. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin May 18 edited May 18 The B450 chipset is only usable with AMD's Ryzen CPUs, and unfortunately AMD doesn't officially support Windows 7 for anything that's a Ryzen platform, and their older CPUs are not compatible with the newer boards. Intel's newest hardware is the same way. If you're looking for something that will officially be guaranteed to work with Windows 7, you'd want to look at the used market with Intel's sixth and seventh generation processors/motherboards.  It's not that it can't work, but rather that getting it work would take extra effort and there's no guarantee it will work properly if you do. Some motherboard manufacturers do provide Windows 7 drivers on some newer boards, but it's hit or miss and AMD would still tell you there's no guarantee they'll work. You could certainly try to do it, but you'd almost certainly run into issues. For example, your USB 3.0 ports not working because Windows 7 doesn't have any native USB 3.0 drivers and needing to add a separate driver in the installation files or use a workaround like a PS/2 keyboard to do the install. There could potentially be stability/performance issues or other features not working as well. From research I've done online, some people have been able to make it work, and some people can't. There's really no easy way to determine what would happen for you without actually trying, and since it's not officially supported, Microsoft and the manufacturers can't help.  The alternative would be running a Windows 7 virtual machine in a Windows 10 or Linux installation.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Is 2060 Super sweet spot for 3440x1440 gaming? — Micro Center Is 2060 Super sweet spot for 3440x1440 gaming? Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ October 16 in Graphics Cards In all the craze of the sales over the last couple of days, I snagged myself a $300 35" 3440x1440 monitor (unbelievable bargain, really). If you must know, it's a Monoprice Zero-G 35" Gaming Monitor. I bought it mostly because it will come in super handy for my work from home, but the gaming side of it is a nice bonus! It'll arrive in a few days, so meanwhile, I'm researching on which video card I should get to support the new monitor. Right now, I'm running a GeForce 970. I know it can run games at that resolution, but only if I'm willing to crank the quality settings WAY down. I'm looking long and hard at a 2060 Super, but the Radeon 5700 XT isn't out of the question, either. I know both are perfectly capable cards for what I'm looking for. I'm leaning towards the 2060 only because I hear a lot about driver issues with the Radeon, not to mention that I'd have to go through the hassle of COMPLETELY removing any NVIDIA drivers/software from my PC prior to installing the Radeon. That's a pain I'd like to avoid. So, is the 2060 Super good for high, or even ultra, quality settings for some of the games I want to play on my new monitor? Examples would be the Exodus series, Witcher games (all 3), and probably some incoming games like Cyberpunk and Kerbal Space Program 2. Flight Simulator is also possible down the road, but I know that game punishes a lot of cards. I should note, I'm far more interested in FPS than I am in refresh rate (doesn't hurt, but it's not like I'm gaming competitively, so it's irrelevant in my book). Final question: When will the 2060 Super cards be back in stock, if at all? (Mayfield Hts., OH location) 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments Felicity near Tustin ✭ October 19 edited October 19 fyi, you want the fps before the refresh rate. but having both is nice. I just enjoy 240hz and under 180 starts to feel slow. having a high refresh rate without consistency is frustrating. There is no sweet spot for 4k; it might be the 3080; but if you think a 970 can do 4k in games that have any demand at all, a 2060 super will blow it away regardless. Look for the 2070 super evga black gaming, it's rather nice but the price point is contentious with so many maybes. it was the cheapest middleground I could find without going to a 2080ti or something and @ 500 is quite nice and has pulled its weight. the 5700xt was a disappointment all around. If it was any good, nvidia's 20 series wouldn't have been so stupid. The only thing more absurd is making a product better for half the price and expecting 20 customers. everyone trying to keep secrets and purposeful leaks so specific that they don't even know what they're trying to do. very government-esque. DDU will remove drivers/folders easily. Or reinstall windows. Good to do with any large upgrade anyway. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin October 24 The 2060 Super can certainly do 1440p at high/ultra depending on the title but the better question is what kind of FPS are you looking to get at those settings? Ultimately it just depends on the title.  For some perspective, I have an LG 27GL850-B. 2560x1440, paired with a 2080 Super + 3700X . In Horizon Zero Dawn I was usually able to get ~80-90FPS at high settings. A 2060 Super is probably good for around 60FPS. Based on this video, Witcher 3 at ultra should hit 70+ FPS at 1440p with a 2060 Super.  For future graphically demanding titles like Cyber Punk, you can probably run them at 1440p high/max settings, but you may not be able to hit that 60FPS target, just depends on how intense they are.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ October 25 TSTonyV said: The 2060 Super can certainly do 1440p at high/ultra depending on the title but the better question is what kind of FPS are you looking to get at those settings?

Seeing as I have an ultrawide monitor, it certainly sounds like if I want to be able to play my games consistently at 60FPS at 3440x1440 while also future-proofing for future games, I should probably look more at the 2070 Super or the 5700XT. Seeing how AMD's about the announce the 6000 series, I'm going to sit tight and see what they have up their sleeve and what their prices will be. I worry about their driver fiasco happening all over again, though. (Hopefully they've learned their lesson after the 5000 series). 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TheRaptorFence ✭ October 28 edited October 28 Waffler said: TSTonyV said: The 2060 Super can certainly do 1440p at high/ultra depending on the title but the better question is what kind of FPS are you looking to get at those settings?

I worry about their driver fiasco happening all over again, though. (Hopefully they've learned their lesson after the 5000 series). Yeah, with the new console push I'd advise waiting. The new lineup from nVidia's 3000 series and AMDs 6000 series is a hell of a jump in price to performance. Obviously stock is an issue for a 3000 series until at least after Christmas, so if stock on 6000 series is good enough I'd make the jump there for future proofing, drivers be damned (I've been burned by AMD drivers before. It's an inconvenience, but if the performance is there then make the jump anyways just for the massive FPS increase). EDIT: For reference, ray tracing and DLSS enabled 2019-2020 AAA games on 3070 are running in the 75-90 FPS range. A 2070S or above will do in the range of 45-90 depending on the card (2070S being the low end of that!), but at those prices you might as well buy the newest gen since it'll be on par price wise but see a jump of 30-50% in performance with bells and whistles on. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

How do I configure the switch for port mirroring? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Best Answers TS_JosephF admin June 6 Accepted Answer Hello @DaveInWorthington I apologize for the confusion and the delayed response. We really appreciate you letting us know. I have sent a message to our web team to correct the specifications on that page. However, I believe you would benefit from a managed switch. It will support features like port mirroring and VLANs. Personally, the only layer 2 switch that has port mirroring capabilities that I am aware of is the Ubiquiti brand. That is only because you can control the switch through a controller. Other than that, nearly every unmanaged switch will not allow you to control the traffic or the ports. 5 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter DaveInWorthington ✭ June 7 Accepted Answer SG108E switch that has port mirroring. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers DaveInWorthington ✭ June 5 Correction: The "Installation Guide" says nothing about it.

Community Article KVM Switch and Docking Station - I'm doing something wrong — Micro Center KVM Switch and Docking Station - I'm doing something wrong Bwanderz ✭ June 9 in Hobby Boards & Projects Hello, Yesterday I purchased an 816439/ IOGEAR USB-C DOCK W/ 100W PD https://www.microcenter.com/product/510631/iogear-usb-c-docking-station-with-power-delivery-30 and a 988253/ IOGEAR USB-C 2PRT KM SWT W/PD https://www.microcenter.com/product/610523/iogear-usb-c-2-port-keyboard-mouse-and-peripheral-switch-w---power-delivery at Micro center to connect my LG 29WK600-HDMI, Lenovo Ideapad L340, and a Surface Pro 6. A few things I noticed when I unpacked the purchased items yesterday was that I might not have the correct connect cables. Also, when I combined the elements, the KVM switch read only one computer. It did not feed that one computer to the monitor that is connected to the docking stations. The set up right now is that monitor is connected to the docking station with the HDMI cable, the docking station USB-c is connected to the surface pro (because of COVID Look down) I do not have the surface pro docking station. The wireless keyboard and mouse are connected to the docking station that allows me to type on the surface.   This is where I am lost – the KVM switch has two USB-c ports in the back for two computers and a third USB-c port for the power, with three USB-b ports in the front with an additional USB-c port in the front also. The docking station has two USB-c ports in the back, one next to a VGA HDMI, ethernet port, printer port, and three USB ports with a USB-c cable. I placed the KVM switch USB-c cables into the Lenovo USB-c port and the other KVM USB-c cable into the surface pro. The KVM only registered one laptop without the monitor. I’ve read that I could connect a KVM switch to a docking station; however, I think that does the docking station have to be equipped to read two laptops? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers TSMikeW admin June 10 In theory having a KVM switching two PC's between a dock should work. In practice, having a controller behind another controller usually creates it's own issues. To verify, it's a switch, so it should only detect one PC at a time. Then you'll toggle the channel and it should switch over to the second PC. Then that PC will detect the docking station and attempt to install it. This is where you can run into an issue. So first lets do this. Whenever you're using something behind a switch, I would always let the system install it first, so that it's going to recognize the device properly. This is more than likely if you install it directly then move it behind the switch, rather than trying to install it through the switch or docking station. If you connect the docking station directly to the system with USB C, does it work properly and are you getting video output? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Planning to have a Motherboard swap done. Also want to see if I can without reinstalling windows. — Micro Center Planning to have a Motherboard swap done. Also want to see if I can without reinstalling windows. BC795 ✭ June 14 in Windows So as it says in the title, I am planning on having my motherboard swapped at Micro center. I am making this post because I wanted to try calling the store, but every time I tried calling these past two weeks, the hold line was always full, so I'm trying again here on the community page. I have done some research that this is a risky thing to do since booting on dissimilar hardware could damage the windows installation, especially if one mobo is AMD and the other is Intel. While mine are both AMD, my new motherboard is from a different manufacturer. These are the specs for each: Old: Mobo - ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA CPU - AMD FX-8350 GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 New: Mobo - MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600 GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super For further info, I started with an OEM copy of Windows 7 when I first built my computer in 2016, but after I upgraded to Windows 10, my license became tied to my Microsoft account, which according to this, should be fine. I do hear that most people would just reinstall Windows due to something about the boot drivers possibly conflicting, but not only would that mean having to reinstall every program I have, I would also lose Windows Image Viewer (which carries over from 7) as I do not like 10's default program for viewing images. Additionally, there do seem to be ways to do a swap and keep your installation as shown here, here, and here, but I also want to be walked through the most reliable way of doing so, especially since I don't want to uninstall the wrong things with the latter two, as they involve uninstalling your old drivers before doing anything. I also want to know if I can just simply load a system image on the reinstallation process if I do have to go through with that, or if Sysprep works with Windows 10. Sorry if this is a lot, since this is something I really want to be careful about. Any help would be appreciated, thanks! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMikeW admin June 15 The best answer we're going to be able to give you here is probably, maybe. There are a couple of factors to consider. First windows 10 is definitely an improvement. Windows 7 would boot or crash and that was it. Windows 10 will at least halt the startup and it will install your new hardware or at least attempt to, like on an initial installation. Windows 10 generally does fine with this, but it's never guaranteed. Main thing to watch out for that will cause a BSOD is your storage controller mode. Check the old BIOS and see if it's in PATA/IDE, AHCI or RAID. You should match this on your new board. It can be changed later on, with Windows 10 you just need to get into safe mode and it'll boot fine then automatically install a driver for the storage controller type. The one to watch out for is the PATA/IDE, it won't exist on your new board. If you run into that, let it crash until you're in the recovery environment, then go into safe mode. If it boots, it'll load a driver. You'll most likely be in AHCI though. I looked at the first guide you linked. They do reference what I mentioned about the storage controller modes. In Windows 7 you had to edit the registry in safe mode to fix this, Windows 10 does it automatically. It looks like they're suggesting creating a backup image first. However, it's a cloned image. If the install crashes on startup, the image is going to do the exact same thing. It is a good idea to have a backup just in case though. Sysprep is for repacking installs. You'd use in a fresh install if you were installing software for someone then wanted to repack it so they could have the out of box experience, but still have those programs already installed. Not relevant for what we're doing here. It is still present on Windows 10 though, works the same as it did before. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter BC795 ✭ June 17 edited June 20 TSMikeW said: Main thing to watch out for that will cause a BSOD is your storage controller mode.

Thank you. and if I do have to switch the storage controllers, I can just switch it back to something else once it's up and running, right? Also, I checked my BIOS, and the storage controller is on AHCI. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article How to use the Maingear Vector 2 NODE Control Center Software — Micro Center How to use the Maingear Vector 2 NODE Control Center Software TSTonyV admin May 8 edited June 9 in MAINGEAR This guide will give you a general overview of the new NODE Control Center software included on the Maingear Vector 2 laptops. It differs from the NODE software on some of their previous models, though it does have very similar functionality in general. It includes features for customizing lighting and performance, as well as hardware monitoring statistics for the system.  1. EZ Switch EZ Switch allows you to quickly toggle certain features on or off Display Power Source for Display lets you toggle the monitor on off, while leaving the system on.  Display Features lets you switch between presets for the monitor that will change things like brightness, contrast, color temperature, etc... Each setting will have a gear icon you can click to adjust them to your preferences. You can also choose the customize option if you want to create your own pre-set Other Settings  Windows Key Lock lets you enable/disable the Windows key on the keyboard.  Hibernation USB power lets you keep power running to USB devices while the PC is off/hibernating, e.g. if you want to charge your phone but keep the computer off.  Turn off OSD toggles the on-screen popups you get when using the function keys and other toggle options like caps lock and num lock.  2. Lighting Lighting allows you to customize the keyboard backlight.  Monochrome will set the keyboard backlight to whatever color you choose. You can use the pre-set colors in the hexagonal grid, or choose something using the colorwheel.  Colorful will fade colors on the keyboard in a pre-set cycle. Manual allows you to set your own custom order for cycling colors through at internals from 2-10 seconds. However, it's a hard switch, it doesn't do a fade in/out like the Colorful setting does. The circular arrows will restore it to the default settings. 3. Operating Mode Operating Mode allows you to customize your fan profile. You can switch between three pre-settings by clicking the icons on the top left corner. Operating mode is a low-power pre-set that allows you to set the fan curve between three pre-sets and customize it as you wish. The fan speed will ramp up as temperatures on the system go up, and you can make that ramp more or less aggresive depending on your preferences Game mode is a balanced power pre-set, the fan curve is not adjustable. The system will try to save power when resource requirements are low but can boost performance to maximum when required.  Beast mode is a maximum performance pre-set so the system will run at full capacity at all times, again the fan-curve is not adjustable.  4. System Monitor.  System monitor will provide hardware information and usage statistics for the system. Each of the circles at the bottom can be clicked to select information about different components, and change the details listed on the right. Memory will display current utilization of the RAM on the system as well as the temperature of the SSD. On the right you'll be able to see the model number and usage statistics for the SSD. Processor will display current utilization and temperature for the CPU. GPU will display current utilization and temperature for the video card.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Leave a Comment BoldItalicStrikethroughOrdered listUnordered list Format Heading 1Heading 2 QuoteCodeSpoiler Emoji Url Image Align leftAlign centerAlign rightToggle HTML viewToggle full pageToggle lights Drop image/file Home • MAINGEARComment As ...
