Unless I'm severely mistaken the USB 3.0 spec for 20V 5A is the maximum that the connector can handle. That's the connector, not the cable, supply side, or receive side. And it's the maximum, not the standard. Your standard USB 3.0 port will only supply a max of 5V, and current/wattage will be limited to whatever that particular "supplying" USB port is rated ...

You're asking for 100 watts (20 volta at 5 amps). Even USB 3.1 can only supply 5 volts at 1.8 A, absolute maximum. That's 9 watts. It is flatly not possible to draw 100 watts from a source that can only supply 9. That's why the product you seek does not exist.

Try downgrading the driver from version: 364.72 - while somewhat alarmist - this article suggests that that specific release is buggy. I believe I had 361 earlier and it was fine. I'm personally not having issues with 364 either, but my guess would be the previous version should be fine for now.

Having tested a Motherboard powered GT 730, and confirming that it works, I connected a meter to my PSU. It was indeed not providing sufficient power. Replaced it under warranty, and everything is now working.

On most modern PCs, it supplies power to the VRM, which produces the voltages for the CPU. I'm surprised that you got an i7 3700K to work without any connection to the CPU power connector. That CPU draws over 70W at full power. I suspect your machine would have become unstable if you had, for example, added a PCIe graphics card that draws the maximum ...

I have found a simple plan to do this. Check both power supplies, the connectors that goes into the motherboard, one wire should be grey and the other wire should be green. (those are the only two colours that is not in multiple but single). Cut those two wires from the slave PSU (If i can call it that) and splice it with the same colour wire on the primary ...

If newly assembled or modified desktop PC appears to have started (Fans, LEDs running etc) but does not display anything on screen, try the following. Ensure that all connectors are firmly attached to the respective components. In addition to 24 Pin ATX also make sure that 4 or 8 Pin CPU EPS power connector is firmly connected to the respective socket on ...

some common things that you can try doing: Reset the CMOS, look in the instructions of the MB for how to do that on you specific model Try different video out ports, so if theres VGA, HDMI, Display Port, try those... Try a different cable, the one that your using to test with might be bad. Depending on the MB and CPU combination the MB may need the CPU to ...

Since it only happens when running on the battery and you get absolutely no warning, the most likely explanation is that your battery does not charge well. That causes it to appear fully charge even if it's not, so the system can not predict properly when it will run out of charge. This is probably a problem with the battery itself that is due to be ...

I can see where you're coming from - why spend good money just to see if something works. Unfortunately, the only way to test if your graphics cards work (and, not only that, but if they work reliably under stress and over time) is to install them into a properly configured, compatible PC. That includes using a compatible and compliant power supply. If you ...

There are a lot of PSUs with this because of high end gaming card setups now that use 6 pin. You could also use a molex adapter, depending on how good the PSU is it could definitely handle this. In this case, you just would not use the 24-pin adapter.

No, it is not safe. A damaged cable can cause an electrical short which can damage the connected equipment, so you should replace the damaged cable. Regarding your sketches, I prefer to not plug more than one cable into a three-socket adapter attached directly to the wall socket, because it is potentially mechanically unstable. A more logical way of ...

To answer the question in minimum words, you are seeing a problem which I and others have experienced and which has not yet been solved either by us or by ASUS. My personal opinion is that there's a basic design flaw, but I no way to back that up other than by summarizing "my situation" as described below. I have the original X99-Deluxe and I have talked ...
