Ladies and gentlemen... Can we please have a moment of silence for my PC which seems to be on her last legs...

CPU thermal throttling at 40 degrees celcius (CPU is on it's way out)
RAM is randomly having allocation errors
PSU isn't delivering optimal current
GPU only displays out of 2 DP ports

and for the very first time... Have had an SSD fail...

Pray for me people... Please

    All those problems might very well be caused by the failing PSU, I would try it with a different one just to test that.

    @TobiSGD already done, borrowed one off my friend and still experiencing the same issues :-(

    Side note: trying to decide on a CPU but can't decide whether a ryzen 2700x is worth the extra $100 AUD over the 2700... Anyone got some recommendations?
  • 7
    @lxmcf it does not. The main difference between those is the base CPU clock speed. But since 2700 is overclockable, you can up the clock on it too. Unless you're going for extreme over clocking (more than 4 GHz. Because of binning X version can get to higher clocks) you will be okay with non X version.

    @irene ok cool. Cheers!

    @lxmcf updated the message.

    @irene ok yep, so I will probably just overclock the 2700 to the 2700x speeds seeing I'll be using a fairly beefy AIO.

    Cheers for the help

    RAM - memtestx86
    GPU - check for any signal out of the other ports via multimeter/logic tester (if the rails work it might be a different issue)
    PSU - yeah replace it

    @lxmcf btw, bear in mind that you'll need at least B or X chipset board to overclock. Type A won't work (not that I've seen a lot of A370 boards...)

    That's problem of whole PC might be PSU, but as long as it starts random errors everywhere, there is a big chance that you will need to say goodbye to your computer. It happened to me when I first bought computer with Core2Duo. I had to change almost everything because of random failures for a long time.

    Small update: after some testing the GPU is actually fine, just needed to be reseated again

    Replace the psu and revive that.
    One component can influence others. Check if that is the psu or the mobo. Both can influence each other.

    @Gregozor2121 currently running on my mates spare PSU

    Are you sure that your mobo isnt screwing with the psu?

    @Gregozor2121 100% because I was just at a LAN with my friend and he has literally the same build as me and he has the exact same issues.

    We ordered at the same time so we are assuming we just got bad luck and had dodgy parts
