Do I need to look for some specific ferrite beads or any will do? I have no idea about these things, so some more specifics would be welcome, like is it enough to just put them on a cable or do I need to make some sort of a loop, etc.

I recently acquired GDC Beast v8.4d and I'm experiencing no stability in PCI-Express 2.0 mode. When I switch my Thinkpad X230 to work in "v1" mode, all is good, however, when connecting the external display through a d-Sub cable, I see big interference on the screen, which seems to be in sync with the framerate and the sound coming from the GDC board itself. So... I guess ferrite might be the solution 😉

Thanks in advance Smile

Thinkpad X230 + GDC Beast v8.4d, GPU and PSU pending

For anyone having the same problem , i tried the ferrite beads they didn't work for me , i tried wrapping the aluminium foil around the HDMI cable no luck whatsoever . So i tried isolating my PSU to it's own power outlet and surprisingly that did the trick for me .

Hey , sorry i can't send you pictures because i'm not not home , but i guess what i said was clear . You gotta use another power outlet for the PSU alone . Don't use a power extension cord , or any other device that will share power with your PSU . Good luck !

I have the same problem but managed to fix it without using any groundings, instead I used ferrite beads on both cables coming from the power supply and the EXP GDC 8.0.

ferrite Beads

i have a similar problem. When I turn on certain lights or turn off certain equipment the pc crashes (video tdr failure nvlddmkm.sys).
I did several try crasha when I operate the extractor hood of the bathroom, or the automatic shutters or the air conditioners.
I bought a pair of ferrite bead and it will arrive on Thursday.
I wanted to know if it was necessary to make the windings on the ferrite bead. I use an atx corsair vs550 and it will be difficult to make the windings.
Hope to solve, thanks

@, 

it doesn't work for me. I tried ferrite, aluminum too. But it doesn't work crashes when I turn on / off the lights.
With a UPS do I solve?
