I put together a pc with used parts, here are the exact components:
ROG Crosshair IV Formula
Phenom II x6 1090T black edition @ 4ghz
Corsair Vengeance Lp 1600 16go
Gigabyte r9 290x
Cooler Master 212 evo
Seasonic 650w psu
I overclocked the cpu without a problem, it runs at ~20° idle and 40° under Prime95.
But I still have a few minor issues I'd like to understand.
When I press the power button it takes a while before the computer gets going.
The red lights (cpu, gpu etc.) blink once each time and only then the fans start spinning and the computer starts.
I did some cable management afterwards, don't mind the mess on the video
I also ran a userbenchmark test and it says my ram is performing way below average.
I set the timings right I believe, so I don't understand where the issue could come from.
Then I used AHCI for my ssd but it doesn't appear in the bios?! It works like this and windows boots without a problem, but it seems the bios only wants to see IDE drives.
Also the gpu temperature is at 60° idle. Seems quite high to me?
Thanks for your answers
