    for gaming, i would go with the msi. the curved screen and higher refresh rate are nice features

    DarkFlash Shadow Pro and L6 - Is it good?

    Yeah, after a bit of digging I also discovered this line of coolers were once branded "Aigo" --- and I think it's the same company, not simply two different companys re-badging the same product like a lot of aliexpress sellers. Could be a legit product but I'll likely avoid them unless it's for science. There are so many options for just $10 more.

    Installation Inquiry

    There's a utility called Sysprep designed for doing exactly this, and it comes with Windows. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\ and run Sysprep.exe.

    When you attempt to access the user folder does a green bar start to load and take an infinite amount of time?

    Will my old setup create a bottleneck?

    Yup and that what happens when you don't double check your work and don't notice that one of the wires of the CPU fan is caught in the fan. Good thing the case is well ventilated and the thermal paste is fresh or this could have cause some major damage. I uploaded a new pic with better temperature for the cores, but same FPS results at the end of the day

    You would run a windows utility called Sysprep https://thesolving.com/server-room/when-and-how-to-use-sysprep/
  8. No, it's not like this. Think of the x470 chip as a network switch or a router, which has a bunch of network ports. It can take signal from a bunch of network cards / computers and mixes the data packets together and sends them through a single cable to the outside world (to the router, or to the ISP and so on). The CPU connects to the x470 chip using pci-e 3.0 x4 connection. This means there's approximately 4 GB/s theoretical speed in both directions. (1 pci-e 3.0 lane is ~970 MB/s in both directions) The x470 chip creates 8 pci-e 2.0 lanes, where each lane has a maximum speed of 500 MB/s in both directions. But these are only the pci-e lanes that go outside the chip and which can be routed to M.2 connectors, or to PCI-E slots or to onboard chips (sound cards, extra usb controllers, extra sata controllers, various more exotic things like let's say PCI to PCI-e bridge chips to add PCI slots for backwards compatibility ). The x470 also creates SATA connectors and USB 2 ports and USB 3.0 ports (5gbps) and USB 3.1 gen 2 ports (10 gbps) Imagine that inside the x470 chip there's several pci-e 2.0 lanes which are directly connected to these internal controllers: 4 pci-e lanes go to the SATA controller which handles the 6 SATA ports OR 3 pci-e lanes are used to connect 3 separate SATA controllers, each controlling 2 SATA ports (so you have 6 SATA ports in total) 1 pci-e lane inside the chip goes to a USB 2 controller which creates up to 7 USB 2.0 ports 2 or more pci-e lane go to the USB 3 controller (5gbps) which creates 4 usb 3.0 ports - so you have multiples of 500 MB/s creating 4 USB 3 ports 1 or several pci-e lanes go to the USB 3.1 gen 2 controller (10gbps) which creates 1 or 2 usb 3.1 gen 2 ports So basically the x470 takes in 4 pci-e 3.0 lanes (4 GB/s) and may very well create 16 or 24 pci-e 2.0 lanes but only 8 are exposed to the outside world, for the pci-e slots or m.2 connectors... the other are hidden inside the chip, connecting everything else the chip offers. Or, the chip could create 8 pci-e 3.0 lanes internally, and then have a tiny pci-e controller which takes in 2 pci-e 3.0 lanes and creates 8 pci-e 2.0 lanes and the other 6 pci-e 3.0 lanes are used internally inside the chip to connect the other controllers. So internally you could have in total 8-10 GB/s of bandwidth (16-24 x 500 MB/s) or 8 GB/s (if we go with the 8 x pci-e 3.0 lanes version), but because you're not using ALL of these lanes near their maximum throughput, the data coming and going into those lanes can be multiplexed together and squeezed into those 4 GB/s that are between CPU and processor. Also, keep in mind that for some things, you don't have to move data through that channel that goes to the CPU. For example, if you copy a file from one hard drive to another, and both hard drives are connected to SATA ports, then the data could very well simply be routed between SATA ports, it doesn't have to be sent all the way to the CPU only to be sent back to the chipset, to go in the other SATA port. --- The first m.2 receives its pci-e lanes directly from CPU, so you know for sure they're pci-e 3.0 x4 , which means you have a maximum theoretical speed of 4 x ~970 MB/s in both directions. The second m.2 connector may not have pci-e lanes at all, or may have 2 or 4 pci-e lanes, and considering the x470 chip creates only pci-e 2.0 lanes, you know you'll have 2 or 4 pci-e 2.0 lanes. So, a maximum speed of 2-4 x 500 MB/s nick name above has attached a screenshot of the manual which tells you... the second m.2 connector only has 2 pci-e lanes routed to the connector. To the best of my knowledge, x470 chipset only creates pci-e 2.0 lanes, so I'd say the manual is wrong when it says there pci-e 3.0 x2, i doubt it's 3.0 Also, you can see it says that if you insert something in the pci-e x1_1 or pci-e x1_3 slots (two pci-e x1 slots), then the bios gives priority to those slots, so it disables the pci-e lanes to the second m.2 connector, as there's not enough pci-e lanes to connect both those two pci-e x1 slots and the second m.2 connector to the chip.
  9. what about Thermaltake Smart RGB 700W 80+ 256-Color RGB Fan ATX 12V 2.3 Kaby Lake Ready Power Supply is it any good i like RGB will it be enough for 1080 ti 6600k

    ports not opening?

    Would you happen to know if you're behind a double NAT? (A router plugged into another router) This is a common issue and will cause opening ports to fail. Who is your ISP and what is the service type? (DSL, Coax, Fiber, LTE) Some ISPs won't allow port forwarding and some won't allow it on certain service types like LTE.
  11. You already own an i9 9900K but for w/e reason you want to keep using an i7 4770K? hwat

    Installation Inquiry

    Say I want to install windows on a friends computer. I then get to the desktop, install all necessary drivers and perform some stress test. This I know. What I don't know is how to give the computer to my friend so that my friend can set up the user account, personalization. like I want my friend to set it up like as if it just came out of the box.

    Pair of AMD Navi GPU's to be shown at Computex

    2005 called it wants its argument back. Hey, let me use your argument! Nobody should buy Nvidia cards because I and several people, even on the GeForce forums are having driver stability issues with Nvidia's drivers. I even remember the widespread issue with 1060s having multiple BSOD issues due to Nvidia drivers. https://www.techpowerup.com/252550/nvidia-dlss-and-its-surprising-resolution-limitations It just works! It just works!

    Monitor Recommendations

    So I need Recommendations Between this Monitor 1.MSI MAG24C 2.Acer KG251QF Which would be the best ? From that 2 monitor ? Or Anyone have other Recommendation ? Budget Will be around That 2 Monitor price thanks
  15. The Corsair RMx is the much better PSU between those two. It would actually be a good choice for your system. I personally use a Corsair RMx with my GTX 1080Ti and i7 6700k

    No, I'm asking you to specify your desired race that you currently identify as. Screw it, I'm assuming your race, gender, where you live, what computer you have, what you drive. . .

    ports not opening?

    Do you have a service listening to that port and does it accept icmp/ping/etc?

    Pair of AMD Navi GPU's to be shown at Computex

    You haven't been able to show nor identify if it's still a current issue. Were they or are they now still shit? You can find evidence of much things but you can do you own analysis of this situation to decide if it's still a problem or if it's big enough you should factor that in more. If you put blinders on to the situation you're only ever going to see what you want to see, that's why they put them on race horses and it's quite effective. Edit: And I see no reason that this should be discussed more, topic is about AMD and computex.
  20. It depends on whether or not the 4770K is still good enough for your usage. If it is, then don't bother upgrading. If it isn't then upgrade.

    Literally just reinstalled on my 1950x workstation. WTF is this loading between 3D Settings? After opening different AMD SW on Vash everything loads instantly. There's constant delays in NVCP. <.< WTF?!

    You’re assuming my race now?!
  23. Skiiwee29

    Is this hardware or software based issue?

    increase the SOC voltage. You're safe to do so up to 1.2v for 24/7 operations. I have to run mine at 1.15v and a high LLC setting to be stable.

      I would get a better unit if i were you.

      Make a thread for this kinda stuff

    2. Mack66


      @ReggieGRSwhat u mean ? I should upgrade my psu ?

    3. ReggieGRS


      I would.

      Its not a good unit for consistency.

      Its not even on the PSU Tier List here on the forum.

      Again, make a thread
