  1. Any ideas? I might message Asus support soon about this and see what what they have to say.
  2. This is disappointing to see. I changed my background to default Windows 10 and I can see the black bar....I hope my screen didn't get faulty the moment it fell out of warranty :(
  3. I should add that I was playing Stick of Truth (lots of colours making the bar easier to see) but it's capped at 30fps. Could that be causing this? Cause the games I mostly see this is before playing this has been the older Assassins Creed games which are often capped at around 60
  4. I have been using the PG279Q for well over 2 years and recently I noticed there is a dark (gray or black) bar at the top of the screen that I only really see when I'm gaming with G-Sync on in some games. It flickers when I move the mouse or move in the game. I've not managed to see this happen during other regular Windows use. I think I can still see the black bar in game when I disable G sync but that might be my eyes tricking me lol. Has anyone ever seen this before and has any solutions? I'm attaching a video of the issue from in game. My specs: R9 3900x x370 C6H (x570 upgrade pending) Asus Strix GTX 1080Ti 20200216_233148.mp4
  5. I have the S10+ which is overkill for my needs and should last me for few more years. Honestly, I probably wont buy another flagship phone again, it really isn't worth it and pretty much a waste of money.
  6. Ahhh....gotcha. ?They have the right to be a bit obnxious with years of AMD being derided haha
  7. Good good, that high pitched noise is exactly what I'm worried about cause oh I remember the days when tiny little noisy as all hell fans where pretty common on motherboards. Good thing we're not quite back to those times
  8. So it shouldn't be running loud or at all during gaming for instance with a 1080Ti or 2080Ti ? Or at the very least be drowned out by the other fans in the system.
  9. I have the same concerns. Really want the C8H but wonder if the fan will be audible over my 4 rad fans and one exhaust
  10. Ahhh I want a new motherboard for my 3900x soon! My C6H has started to show it's age a little bit. The latest BIOSes are a bit wonky at times and my local store just got the C8H in stock, very pricey though and I have concerns about the chipset fan. Any advice? Is x570 worth the upgrade from x370?
  11. So, I have a general contractor doing some work for me around the house who knows I work with computers. He is looking into the possibilty of getting into CAD, in particular MagiCad for Piping and sprinkler systems. There seems to be two versions of it, one is MagiCad for AutoCad and the other for something called Revit, not sure what that is. Anyway, he's looking at getting a PC for this and I offered to look into this since I have leftover parts and can get deals for retail part and I could build a powerful PC for less than retail and that would be in lieu of some payments for his work. I am a little unsure of the system requirements or what is enough for a smooth experience. The little documentation he could give me only really mentioned GPU, either GeForce or a Quadro. 2070 for the absolute best performance but that is out of budget. One of the cards specified for regular use is the 1660, basically any card with 4gigs and more vram so I'm thinking any variant of the 1660 will be good enough. So, here is how it's looking parts wise in my head: CPU: 2700x with stock cooler [pre owned] MB: Some B450 Atx [bought new] RAM: 16 gig and around 3000Mhz [bought new] GPU: GeForce 1660 [bought new] PSU: Seasonic S12II 520W [pre owned] SSD: Some Samsung or Crucial SSD Case: Some Corsair ATX case from few years ago [pre owned] What do you guys think? Should I go for something more powerful for someone who uses this fairly intermittently.
  12. Just 3200 CL14 I wonder if I should wait until PCIE 4 becomes more common and then upgrade to x570 or the next generation after that depending on socket.
