  1. Some results: I adjusted the voltage for DRAM and SOC. Adjusted speed to 2733MHz it became unstable, then provided with BSOD (kernel security check failure). I lowered the frequency 2666MHz however, it too became unstable. BSOD (reference by pointer). So far it's running at 2400MHz stable for now. I ran the Windows Memory test. Returned with no errors. I have yet to raise the voltage and test again. I've played a few games too and ran some VMs already with 2400MHz set. So far it's still stable.

  3. I will try this. I will report later with results.
  4. Apologies, I meant to reply to your previous post. I did enable XMP however, the system would start then immediately shutdown and set itself to 2133MHz. That's when I started manually changing speeds.
  5. I believe it's set to auto as per my friend recommending that. That's why I suspect they're not getting enough power.
  6. Ahh yes, I forgot to mention that. There timings are both the same.
  7. Hey all, I got a bit of problem adding more RAM to my rig. I made sure everything compatible before doing so. However, It just starts then shutdown and auto clears my CMOS. I'm trying to add another kit of 2x8GB sticks. My PC currently uses 16GB 3200MHz kit Corsair Vengeance and the new extra kit of 16GB is the same as well. I've done my due diligence, ran some tests, swapped each stick, checked each slot. I tried different lower frequency speeds as well, as low as 2133MHz. I should note that at 2133MHz it was pretty stable and then trying to get it past 2666MHz it can become unstable and then reverts itself to 2133MHz. Could this be a power supply problem and/or DRAM voltage problem? I'll give a break down of my PCs specs below. My reasoning behind 32GB of RAM is because use my system for both workstation purposes along with gaming (Virtual Machines). If anyone could kindly spread some knowledge or guidance that would be wonderful! Thank you very much! - Lucas Specs: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x Mobo: MSi x470 gaming plus RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX (trying to upgrade to 32GB) GPU: RX 580 8GB PSU: 750W
  8. Hey Everyone, I'm having a host of issues. I recently re-built/upgraded my PC. Along with the upgrade returned old issues and some new ones. The GPU I'm using is an MSi RX 580 8GB. I carried this over from my previous build. (I will list both previous and new builds at the bottom. Issues: 1. From time to time either on boot at login or shortly after, a checker boarding effect appears. When this happens my PC halts and the GPU basically shuts itself down. Only way to recover is, well, force a shutdown. After getting this mind-bonkers of a problem. I ventured into Events Viewer and looked into the "error". So I got a bunch of Warnings with EventID: 4101 with this description: "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered". To the internet I went, and came back with nothing. So I had this problem before on my previous build with this same GPU. Nothing but a driver rollback to ways back resolved and updated a month later and haven't seen it for a year or so. However, it started to appear on the AMD supported driver for Modern Warfare. I cannot rollback farther because Modern Warfare and some other titles will not start unless on a updated driver. I also provided a image of the checker effect. I cannot afford a new GPU at the moment. I plan on upgrading to a RX 5700XT some time in the new year. 2. I do not think I'm getting great performance with my GPU either. Kind of low FPS. My buddy with the same build is getting crazy FPS sometimes, around 120 - 144FPS area. I don't believe him but 60 - 30 is all I can pull off. Modern Warfare is running at Maxed 1080p settings 60FPS so I cannot complain too much. However, my friend I mentioned. He's getting something like 120 - 144 at 1440p. Could this because he's freesync? I don't a freesync monitor so I cannot test this claim. Does my output sound right? Any help guys and gals would be awesome. I'm almost at my wits end. I work and go to school a lot and do not have much time for trouble shooting. It's funny. I go to school for Networking and Cyber Security and yet, I can't figure out my issues with my rig. I'm not foreign to computers. So there will be no need to dumb it down so to speak. So have it. I got a mystery I cannot solve. Help. And remember, I love you! Lucas I got more issues too. I'll post later in the appropriate channels Thanks.

  9. Hello, So I have a fairly old PC with some not all that optimal parts. So I've noticed some odd temperatures going on. I have a Corsair H100i GTX CPU cooler, normally when doing things such as browsing, discord, Netflix. Usually at the same time, I can run the PC in a quiet profile. Lately, I've noticed just doing those things my cooler ramps up and the pump start pumping faster. So I've been checking out my temps for some reason Corsair Link (a glitchy mess) reports that MB Sensor 2 is at 60+ Celsius (Mobo: msi Gaming 970). And everything else is fine. So I checked HWiNFO64 and it reports my CPU 60+ Celsius. My CPU is like 20 celsius. So I'm thinking is Cosair Link screwing up? Should I be worried? I did check my MOBO with a temp gun and it seemed fine. One VRM on the board was report a temp similar but nonetheless was at least 5 - 6 degrees lower than the reporting sensor. I provided to screen snips of the reporting temps too. Any help, insight, guidance would be greatly appreciated! One more thing I should mention is that the largest VRM on the board, it's thermal pad underneath has been leaking oil (for lack of a better phrase). I've been aware of this for months and I believe not the cause to the issue. I asked this question before about an issue I am having adding more RAM to this machine. I cannot seem to add more RAM as the system will not Post. I've been at this issue for almost 2 months now and I cannot seem to get my system to use them. I tested all the sticks. (Currently using the set in the PC right now). I've done my research prior to purchase. Checked the Mobo it can take 32GB. I have 16GB currently and I'm trying to add 16 more. They're both the same set too. All the slots are working fine too. Even cleaned them... I'll pop in the 2 extra sticks and it just won't post no matter what I do. I'm at my wits end with this RAM. Any help, insight, guidance would be appreciated greatly!

  10. Excellent. That's what I was thing in regards to the speeds. I currently have my PC running on the new kit alone at the moment.
  11. Hi all, I've bought some more RAM for my PC as I need it for Virtual Machines of servers I run for school. I have currently have 16GB of DDR3 RAM and I bought another kit of the same RAM just in a different colour. One is black other is red. Irrelevant. The RAM in question is the Kingston HyperX Fury sticks of 2x8GB. Same model/part number. So I got them in today and popped them in. (referred to my manual as always) hit power and my PC will not boot. I've tried the troubleshootings of rainbows and cannot figure out for the life of me what's wrong. It works fine with 16GB of RAM but 32GB it does not boot to show the BIOS. So either something is up with the Mobo. Which is possible. My VRM thermal pads are leaking oil. (Odd yes. Bad? Very most likely. Should I fix that? Probably). If anyone has any idea what could be wrong that I am doing here drop your suggestion please my good people! Specs of my PC probably would be helpful too.

She's getting old, especially with those cheap entry level parts. Turn her into server maybe... Also Windows 10 task manager and CPU-Z detects the RAM is running at 933MHz and not detecting 1866MHz which it should be. Anything about that would be helpful too. Thank you! - Lucas
  12. Yep. I've been looking into Event viewer more under system. And I'm getting this warning. The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000. Event ID 219. It seems like it could my PSU after all.
  13. I am not sure where else I should post this. Feel free to move it if need be or if the solution was/has been already found. The other day I downloaded Fortnite. Got it all downloaded started it up tried to join a friend and boom... My PC just rebooted. No BSOD. Nothing in Event Viewer at all. No errors I know of. So I tried some other games like Skyrim, Guild Wars 2, Sonic Adventure 2, Tomb Raider, and Doom and everything ran fine. So I tried Borderlands 2 thinking it'll be fine. Probably just bad files in Fortnite. Nope. The game rebooted at title screen. Tried all the other Unreal Engine games. Same thing! Reboot! Reboot! and REBOOT! And I'm not sure what's wrong. PSU seems, GPU, I rolled it to 2016 drivers. Same issue. Memory test. Everything. Updated/Re-Updated the BIOS. Nothing works. My desktop seems fine. But it cannot run Unreal games. I use to never have this issue like this before with any game or software. I played Borderlands, Bioshock, and Dishonored with no problems before too earlier this year! This is really odd. Only Unreal games do not work. Hehe I'm amazed about this. If anyone has any insight to what maybe wrong that would be awesome!

  14. I am waiting for Vega to see what it is. But a 1070 in Canada is way too much for me and I don't make much money right now.
