  1. I can't quite see without taking it apart but I can't find the extra pins from looking. Thank you!
  2. I bought a generic USB C to type A adapter to make use of the USB C port on my motherboard but the speeds don't match up. On the left are the speeds when connecting an external USB 3.0 drive directly to a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port and on the right is the same device but connected to a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Port only USB C with the adapter. Am I missing something here or is it just a crappy converter? I did get it from Ebay but I want to be sure before I send it back.
  3. Swapped the ram to the other slots and it boots up fine with the profile enabled. Thanks so much guys!
  4. I had no idea, will report back later if it's working okay. Thanks!
  5. Shit I put them in slot 1 and 3, does that actually make a difference? I'll change them when I get home, thank you! Also I am on the latest BIOS just to confirm
  6. These are already the settings applied by DOCP but I'll give it a try!
  7. I've just bought a new Ryzen 5 2600x with an ROG strix B450-F gaming motherboard and 16gb of corsair vengeance ram but I can't get the ram to run at 3200mhz. I've enabled the default D.O.C.P (XMP) profile which set the correct timings and voltage etc but it won't boot at 3200mhz, the highest I got was 2800mhz The timings for the ram are 16-18-18-36 I've tried setting the voltage to 1.35v, 1.4v as well as (I think it was the board chipset voltage) to 1.1v and still no dice. I've also flashed the latest motherboard BIOS. I just assumed ram worked out of the box at the advertised speed, any help would be appreciated!
  8. Great thanks, looks like I just need to get the AM4 bracket and I should be good to go
  9. I'm about to purchase a new CPU, RAM and motherboard. If I puchase a ryzen 5 2600 can I later upgrade to a 3600? What should I be looking for when it comes to motherboards? I'm not bothered about asthetics, as long as I can overclock the CPU and it has enough USB ports for my VR setup that's all I need really. Will my noctua cooler be compatible with the a new motherboard? I think it's a NH-D15, or something from that line. Thanks!
  10. I'm not sure, how would I know?
  11. Yeah the temps are fine, I recently replaced the thermal paste so that's all okay. I'm just assuming the card is getting enough power, I have a 750w psu, I suppose I could plug the 6+8 pin connectors on another power supply to try
  12. I'm pretty certain my MSI GTX 1080 is on in it's way out, I get regular crashing during games unless I underclock it, have artefacts when running at 144hz, pretty sure it's the GPU. Do I have any options aside from buying a new one because it's out of warranty? MSI's support said to contact Amazon but I bought it second hand so I only have access to an invoice. Thanks
  13. I didn't replace them no, they weren't torn or anything though. could that be the problem?
  14. Yeah I just replaced the thermal compound, it was previously in the high 80s but now It's fine, low 70s
  15. I keep seeing flashes of lines across the screen, seems like a form of artifacting. Games regularly crash if I don't underclock the core clocks. I've attached a video: https://youtu.be/TnDFHHK0uXs Any suggestions about what I can do? It's out of warranty and I've done all the basic reinstall drivers etc MSI GTX 1080
