I've checked and replugged several times-Couple maybe obvious questions:
Is the 8 pin connector properly in on both ends?
Are you using the cables that came with the psu or cablemod or any other aftermarket cables? I ask because it's surprising that you don't have the 4pin connector as well. I think my rmx came with several ATX12V connectors that were all 4+4.
I only just saw this edit.Edit: Also, looking at the mobo manual, there are several leds in the mobo that might help you narrow down your problem. 4 leds next to the big power connector and 1 led below the 8pin power.
Theres a few Z590 models but this is from the P manual.I cant see anything that looks like an led here at the big one for example
Also just did a cmos reset and still nothing
We must wait and see.Uh, the rumored specs of the 40xx series are tempting. I may wait for release and try my hand at buying one (and fail spectacularly in a sea of scalpers obviously).
The 4080 would be 320W
The 4070 would be 285W
I don't know shit about that, which PSU power would be appropriate ? I've got a 550W, I think.
For your use case it's probably fine.
The lack of switching window when holding a file is beginning to seriously annoy me.
Why not give Linux a try?
I would say that this looks good.CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor (€239.90 @ Amazon France)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition 57.3 CFM CPU Cooler (€50.90 @ Infomax Paris)
Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500DX ATX Mid Tower Case (€123.88 @ Alternate)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2021) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (€140.99 @ Amazon France)
Yay or Nay ?
The CPU Fan should do a decent job if I don't want to sell a kidney for a Noctua ?
And the PSU should be good for the new nvidia 400xx ? (yeah I know no one can read the future, just asking for your opinion)
Here in CAD-land, both teams still selling most of the 6800/3080 level cards in the $1000 range, so I hope to see some big drops as September and October roll in.It's funny having read all these news for like 3 months about card availability and prices dropping, and then I look at the local stores and the prices have only really gone down like 40€ since April for the card I bought.
By Grabthar's hammer, what a savings.
