Hi! I have an Intel Core i5-10400F CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super with 16GB of RAM. When playing Warzone, I can see that I am getting between 60%-90% CPU usage and only 20%-40% GPU usage through the task manager.
Using the GeForce performance overlay, I can see 70% CPU usage and 50%-60% GPU usage. I am averaging 60-80 frames when a buddy has similar specs and averages 110-120. Please help!
I am currently running Corsair Vengeance memory (CMZ24GX3M6A1600C9) on an ASUS Rampage III Extreme Black Edition motherboard with an Intel i7 990X Extreme processor and 2x ASUS GeForce 680 DC2T 2GD5 GPUs (C7CVCM099279).
I want to upgrade my memory to something that would make my build somewhat faster but still stable, and I wondered if you may have some advice and possibly a better set of DDR3 memory modules to recommend?
I just installed a new CPU cooler, Cooler Master V8 GTS, and I do not have much room as far as height leftover between the top of the DIMM and the fins on the radiator for the CPU cooler. I am not a "Gamer" and not looking to overclock ridiculously. I am just looking to get the "Best and the Fastest" performance out of my build.
I am a graphic artist, website designer/developer, programmer, and photographer, and I utilized just about all of Adobe's software. I do a lot of rendering of images, which I am interested in bettering the performance of my build for. I am looking for a quicker system overall. Can you advise me at all? Thanks, Bob.
I'm looking to upgrade my CPU. I currently have a 2600x, and I'm wondering what CPU I could replace the 2600x with. I don't want to bottleneck my PC, but I do stream and have a few apps open while doing this. So with that said, I'd like to get the best CPU I can that the MSI B450 Max will handle without rebuilding an entirely new PC.
What suggestions do you have on this? I just want to make sure I get a CPU that the motherboard won't restrict the CPU or components.
Hi, I have a Lenovo Legion 5i with a 512 SSD preinstalled. Can I add a 1TB M.2 SSD in the secondary slot without losing performance?
This is my first gaming laptop, and not sure how to upgrade things yet.
Would this work for me? I'm looking to upgrade an HP Pavilion P6000 series PC to make it faster to play games more smoothly. It currently has an AMD Athlon 220 processor and 5GB of RAM, and I'm looking to upgrade the processor to an AMD Ryzen 5 and 16GB of RAM and am wondering if this would work.
Is there a better suggestion for a new gamer on a $300 budget? Thanks for any info!
Hello, I want to purchase a gaming monitor and gaming PC (or the parts to build my PC) with a budget of around £800 - £1000 for games like Apex/Overwatch/Minecraft. I'm looking for a decent FPS (120/150), good response time high-quality resolution.
I wondered if you could point me in the right direction for the best parts/PC or any information about a gaming PC.
My computer will freeze for a minute or two while I'm playing games. My computer: graphics card = 2070 super CPU = Intel i7 9700f RAM = 8GB ddr4 2666MHz x 4
I was having issues where my computer would randomly freeze, and my games would crash, and I noticed my RAM was running at like 80-100%. So I bought two more of the same RAM stick. This did not fix my issue. I did a factory reset one day when my computer froze and wouldn't reboot. After that, my computer still freezes when I play games, usually while I'm in a fight or redeploying in Warzone. Please help.
So, I've just built my PC, and here are the parts:
So I'm pretty sure I've set up everything correctly. The RAM sticks are glowing, the case fan is glowing, all the fans from GPU to CPU are all running. However, whenever I turn on my monitor, it keeps coming up with no signal. I've double-checked by replugging HDMI cables and its monitoring my laptop screen perfectly fine. I've also taken out the RAM sticks, plugged them in one by one, and tried placing them in separate slots. None of the parts are damaged at all, and everything is new.
Hey, I am a massive fan of your work, and I'm looking forward to my first build.
I'm worried about overheating and dust accumulation which could damage the build. Here I believe the ease of cleaning dust is my paramount concern while buying a case while still wanting excellent airflow. Having looked at the cases so far, I'm unsure which you would recommend for 1. Ease of cleaning and 2. Thermal performance.
I'm thinking of using a positive pressure high intake through filters and 6 Noctua fans 4 in 2 out (in on the front (3) and bottom (1) and out at the rear and top) to get rid of heat. This means I'll be needing to clean those intake filters regularly to stop any potential dust build-up. Can you recommend a case for me?
I also am a bit unsure about power supplies; I'd be looking at 1000W to overcompensate and keep the system as quiet as possible so the PSU fan doesn't ramp up too much. With the fan configuration described, would the PSU be pushing hot air back over the GPU and motherboard? Should I reconsider this part of the build?
I finally thought of duct taping the empty rear PCI extension covers at the back inside and out to stop dust from getting in. Is this wise? Hope to hear from you.
I need some help, please. I have an old ASUS Maximus IX Hero motherboard with PCI-E 3.0. Looking for an NVMe SSD upgrade as my current Hynix 256GB just doesn't cut it anymore.
I wanted to buy the Samsung 970 Pro 1TB (MZ-V7P1T0), one of the fastest PCI-E 3.0 SSDs, but the price is £219. I then looked at the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB (MZ-V8P1T0BW) for £189, but that is PCI-E 4.0. Is it worth getting the 980 Pro, or is it not backward compatible? Will it run as fast as a 970 Pro would, or would it be slower? Many thanks for your help!
