      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. a 35" gaming monitor, when I think of monitor I think of it on my desk and sat in front of, it wasn't so long ago when a 32" TV was considered large
  2. Firstly make sure you can actually get a block for those cards, then just pick the one with the highest boost clock
  3. Ok there's only 2x bios available, I would expect that board shipped with F2 http://www.gigabyte.us/Motherboard/GA-AB350M-D3H-rev-10#support-dl
  4. Seriously, try reseating the CPU, I had strange issues and a reseat fixed mine, and have told more people to do so since and it has also cured their issues. Give it a go and report back. Whilst your ram isn't on the QVL, it should still post, albeit at 2133mhz until you fine tune the board. How long have you had the board for? AM4 boards are pretty short supply, I would have expected it to ship with the latest bios
  5. Not sure if this can work for you been white and black https://pcpartpicker.com/product/LgmxFT/asrock-x370-killer-sliac-atx-am4-motherboard-x370-killer-sliac
  6. urgh not this again For a start its sat at 3.6ghz, will hit 4ghz easily. Secondly I bet its like 2400mhz ram. With Agesa 1006 we can go upto 4000mhz ram which will boost gaming massively. Thirdly, 1% and 0.1% lows are generally better on Ryzen leading to a smoother experience, my 1700 is a tonne smoother than my 4790k. Extra cores moving forwards, we're sort of at the i5 vs i7 dilemma from a year or so ago, back then no one wanted/recommended i7's, but a year later, we don't recommend i5's Lastly, I doubt you would notice the difference anyway with a 580, its only really 1070 + where a 1080P bottleneck can be found. Lastly OP wants to render .... Ryzen wins again Ryzen keeps getting faster with newer bios updates (only marginal but there) and optimisations are slowly coming Intel points: Higher FPS mostly, leading to higher averages (see above reference 1% and 0.1%) Mature platform - no teething errors etc with ram and bios bugs. No requirement for expensive/fast ram to get the best gaming performance Optimisations already in place

  9. You should be able to get that voltage lower for 3.7ghz. I have 1.35v for my 1700 @ 3.95ghz
  10. You bought 2133mhz rated ram and blame Gskill for it performing at 2133mhz? Are you on the latest bios? recent bios updates REALLY help with ram compatibility, also with Ryzen you should up the Vcore SOC to around 1.2v to help with memory overclocks. http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4/index.us.asp#BIOS Either way, if you do replace the ram get the FASTEST you can afford and then some, Agesa (an update AMD releases to manufacturers to make new bios's with) 1006 has released offering upto 4000mhz ram speeds. It's not available for all yet but will trickle out. Ram speeds really help Ryzen in gaming, so best not to cheap out again
  11. new dividers incoming with agesa 1006t, so go with the fastest ram you can afford for ryzen. Also for the board opt for the AsRock Taichi as it is pretty much the best of the bunch offering BCLK overclocking and slightly better VRM's PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($306.23 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: NZXT - Kraken X52 Liquid CPU Cooler ($149.99 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: ASRock - X370 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard ($193.98 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-4000 Memory ($234.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung - 960 PRO 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($299.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Seagate - Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($65.69 @ OutletPC) Video Card: Asus - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB STRIX GAMING Video Card ($768.99 @ SuperBiiz) Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400S TEMPERED GLASS ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.89 @ OutletPC) Total: $2219.73 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-05-22 19:49 EDT-0400
  12. 1. Budget & Location You may have listed a heap of parts that all add up to your preferred budget but it is easier if you just list the total amount you'd like to spend and the currency as well as if you'd consider going above that budget for more performance. We need the location as well because $US are different to $AUD and $CAD ect. 2. Aim What is the system going to be used for? Web browsing, 3D work? Different systems need different levels of performance - a computer based for web browsing and office use won't handle heavy graphic design and video editing and a proper video editing system isn't good for gaming. If your aim is for gaming, please list what sort of gaming. In the same way that different usage types need different systems, you'll need a lot more power to run Far Cry 3 or Crysis 2 than you would Minecraft. 3. Monitors How many monitors do you plan on running? Do you plan on moving to more monitors in the future? What resolution are they at too? 4. Peripherals Do you also need to purchase peripherals such as keyboards and mice as well as monitors ect. Also please tell us if you'll need an OS such as Windows. 5. Why are you upgrading? We ask this because you may see upgrading as the only path to solve an issue but things such as driver updates, reconfiguration or cleaning can boost performance without spending a cent.
  13. try the stick in the other slot. Triple check those connectors, are you able to post a picture of the inside of the PC?
  14. doesn't look like it has one try with one ram stick, check all wires are connected
