  1. Why do you have a B85 board with a 4770K? What res are you playing at too?

    What games? Also if this 760 is working on 1080p its expectable
  3. What games? What settings? What resolution?

    Make sure that you plugged your monitor to the GPU, not the motherboard. Also make sure you have the latest drivers for your hardware (most importantly, the GPU).
  4. if all drivers are up to date ( and the necessary drivers off the disc that came with the motherboard are installed ) and you went to windows updates again and again and again.........then you did a defrag and disc clean up and cleared all the cookies and malware........ before you loaded games to play............

    first thing I would do is reset cmos to clear anything abnormal up.

    what resolution/what games??

  9. I am running at 1366x768 max settings on skyrim and normal an arkham origins, I also recently ran 3dmark vantage and everything is scoring half as much as the nvidia website said for performance same with the cpu
    also my monitor is hooked up to the gpu and recently defragged and cleaned my registry
  10. is everything updated? and see the monitor cable is plugged to the card not the board........... sorry missed that...........
  11. I have tried to plug it into the board but it dosent seem to pick it up I also have the igpu graphics disabled in the bios
  12. so it is hooked to the card. no problem. we can move from that.

    did you do a cmos reset?
  13. Not exactly tech savvy how do i do that and what is it
  14. also the monitor is a tv hooked up through hdmi
  15. link tv.
  16. Um I think my cpu overheated a bit I didnt fully secure the cooler properly is the cpu fine or dead now I am worried just replaced thermal paste and all of that and here is the tv link http://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-32-class-31-1-2-diag--led-720p-60hz-hdtv/ also cant find the place to reset cmos on my mobo
  17. Best answer
    first thing you want to do is not use the computer until you fix the heat sink problem. this could be the very cause.

    best way with the crappy Intel mechanism is to install it with the motherboard outside the case so you can see what is happening. pins have to snap/lock in correctly. install in crisscross pattern.
  18. What if its not in a crisscross pattern becaue I already fixed it just without criss cross, should I be worried and I did it in case and in case I broke the cooler what would be a good aftermarket one I also heard some concerning cracking noies while installing it again
