  1. It should at least run at 2133/2400 MHz with relaxed timings regardless of the chips on the sticks. Higher clocks are a different topic ofc.
  2. Could it be that we finally have found something ... What happens if you load "Optimized Defaults" in BIOS?
  3. Did you use automatically applied RAM settings or did you set it (all) manually ... Nope - ingame 100% GPU usage is a "good" thing
  4. Well - as long as the VCore under load and idle behaves ... . VID seems to be bugged with Ryzen atm. Had an other idea while sitting on the throne - set you RAM speed/timings manually to: 2133MHz 15-15-15-36 -50 (RC) 1T like the profile displayed in your screenshot before you try reinstalling. This is the JEDEC standard for DDR4.

      Donate to your local pub instead - much more usefull!


      Snake oil (Defrag in times of SSDs :eww: and sequential writes on HDDs when Windows can do nearly the same), System "Optimization" stinking of "1-click solutions" :drunk: (your PC might behave like that after you run that), Free Backup Solutions and who the fuck ever paid for WinRar/WinZip wallbash.gif


      As far as I can see - for every product listed there probably more than 1/2 a dozen free alternatives exist, that are comparable, better or already meet your needs in their free versions.

      That's what I was thinking as well. I liked the last software bundle I got, but this one seemed... Meh

  5. @_Dean_ Any luck with the reinstallation of W10?
  6. Last suggestion - Win10 reinstall. 1) Make a 1:1 image of your current running system 2) Go to Microsofts website and get the latest W10 installer. Furthermore visit AMDs site and get the latest drivers (chipset, USB ...). LAN and Sound you have to download from other sites "Realtek". Make sure you get the drivers for the right chip (Realtek ALC892 is your sound) not sure how your networking chip is called (HwInfo or device manager should list that). 3) Make an offline installation (unplug ethernet cable) and install the chipset driver first, restart, next driver, restart and so on. Disable aoutomatic driver updates in Windows before you plug in the cable.
  7. My god - Gillian Anderson still causing blood circulation anomalities.


    Watching the 10th season of X-Files atm.

      She became hotter with years imo. Great woman.

  9. "ok" - you can leave the lower voltage settings enabled in BIOS (or save them as a profile). Safes power, generates less heat (->noise) and increases life span of your components. That is normal and logical - basic physics, you can't cheat that mistress. As the voltage is more or less "fixed", the current has to go up. Did you investigate what the process spikes there, is it always the same one? (Hover with your mouse cursor over it to dsiplay the name). Unplug every USB devise from your back panel and put mouse and keyboard in the front USB ports. Also unplug the internet cable.
  10. Not sure Did you notice any difference in the behavior of the system in regards to freezing with th elower voltage?
  11. Did you power on the system before you realised what had happened? No - that doesn't change any BIOS setting. What I was aiming at with my approach was that your VRMs being faulty maybe.
  12. I had a suspicion that you might be running into a voltage/temp problem (resulting in throtteling) that included the MB VRMs, but your fan setup with a top down blower and two fans exhausting air right above the two groups of VRMs make that seem unlikely. Forget about the additional fan - I wanted you test if blowing air directly on the CPU Core VRMs (left of your CPU) has an effect - that wont make a big difference temp wise with your setup. What I want you to try is now is lowering the VCore in your BIOS resulting in load VCore in Prime95 that goes down to 1.30V if possible or even lower. Now I don't know how much experience you have with overclocking (undervolting in this case), but usually there is a difference between the VCore set in the BIOS and the one under load in windows. Example: VCore set in BIOS to 1.20V results in 1.15V under load in windows (Vdrop - it's normal), it's very rare that the resulting VCore in windows is the same or at a higher level than in the BIOS. You ll have to try and fiddle a little bit with your BIOS settings for VCore - I 'd start with 1.40V and look where it gets you under Prime95 and go from there (lower). If your system gets unstable or crashes/freezes, raise the voltage a little. Trying to find out here if something strage is going on with your VRM and the board throttles. Lower voltage results in lower power drawn and less stress/heat for the VRMs.
