Hi, is there any reason some PC games unexpectedly exit to desktop without any error when I'm using my DDR4 RAM's XMP settings?
The following games are running forever with no overclock, but exits randomly when the RAM is OC-ed to D.O.C.P. settings: GTA 5, all the Battlefield games. I have no issues with Counter Strike, Rocket League, any Far Cry, etc. Also works perfectly with video editing software when it's OC'ed.
I am looking to upgrade my current rig and am trying to future proof it. My first purchase will be the power supply. The new rig will be an AMD build, most likely a Ryzen 5 2600x, 16GB of DDR4 memory and I'm hoping to upgrade the graphics to a 1070 Ti as well.
My question would be regarding the PSU... what should I buy? I'm also kind of on a budget, but I would like a semi or fully modular, budget is about $80 USD.
Kind Regards, Peter
I have had a BPX NVMe SSD for some time, but only recently noticed the temperatures. I'm averaging around 66c and reaching 77c maximum, should I worry about keeping it cool? Should I install a heat sink?
The SSD is currently placed between the CPU cooler and the GPU, could temperatures drop down if I place it directly under the GPU?
I bought my AMD Ryzen 7 3900x and GIGABYTE x570 Aorus Elite yesterday. Searching for the best memory, I was told that the sweet spot is 3600 CL16. I found a decent deal on a G Skill Trident Z Neo RGB, but found the people saying that the sub timings suck.
So, I'm wondering, how much of a difference do the sub timings make? Does using an XMP harm the memory or CPU?
I need to buy an SSD and where i live prices are a bit high. I will use it mainly for gaming. Which one would you choose of the below options?
I gain double the storage with the ADATA, but the other two seems way better in quality and speeds.
I was gifted a 10TB external hard drive a little while ago and I was curious to know if it is possible to mount the external drive on to the top of my tower.
I have a lot of screw holes on the top so it should not be an issue making a bracket of some sort to the top of the case.
I am looking for a cheap headset with microphone built-in. Comfort and price are my two biggest concerns and would preferably like to purchase one for below $200.
Can you recommend a 4K HDMI splitter which will carry full 4K/UHD signal from my satellite TV to my projector through a Yamaha RXV581 A/V receiver?
All splitters I have tried locally from Jaycar Electronics will not hold the signal through to my projector although I do get a perfect signal to the Yamaha receiver or directly to the projector. Both audio and video. Signals are being passed through my ceiling and walls via a 20-meter Fibre optic HDMI cable. As soon as I try to pass through a splitter 4K/UHD (alleged) 2 in/1 out, the signal drops out?
Thank you for any help.
I built a machine a few months back and it has been running flawless. When I built it, I was tight on cash and purchased a single stick of Vengeance LPX 8GB 3600MHz to get me by. Now that I have a little extra cash, I have decided to add another stick to my build, so I purchased the exact same stick and added it to my PC.
Upon boot, the system ran great, but when gaming, I keep getting a blue screen.
What should I do?
I have 4x 4TB HDDs and I want to build a DIY NAS. I was curious if the H370M from ASRock, i5-8400 and 16GB of DDR4 would be a good start?
I just want this for streaming my media and basic backup storage.
