    AMD Wattman Reset After Failure - That Never Happened

    Yeah no joy with the DDU and fresh drivers, just reinstalled W10 and an older version of the Adrenaline drivers to see if that helps. EDIT- Nope

    AMD Wattman Reset After Failure - That Never Happened

    I'm running into this problem with a 580 4gb atm, very annoying and nothing on the net seems to work for me. Just ran DDU in safe mode and fresh install of latest drivers (just the graphics and HDMI audio) not holding out much hope of it working. First off was glitching on superposition benchmark, then black screens forcing hard reboot. On reboot the error mssg would appear "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" then nothing graphically intensive would run, just black screen and hard reboot again

    Weird temps

    I was thinking along similar lines but that still doesn't explain thr unusually low temps. I ran aida64 overnight and it still didn't even out the temps, but hey if it can pass a 12 hour stress test it can't be a big problem right?

    PC shuts off no warning gaming

    It's a matter of narrowing down the problem unfortunately. My first suspect would be the power supply but you replaced that and it's still happening. If that isn't the problem then most likely the motherboard has somekind of problem. Worth a try to try different ram but it's a long shot. Also worth stripping down the PC and rebuilding it, sometimes reseating the cpu can help. TBH though It sounds like a mobo problem. Luckily b350 boards are cheap atm. As said above it could be an overheating problem, make sure the cooler is OK and Thermal paste is adequate. There might be an option in the bios to diable overheat protection, but be careful that the temps are OK before trying that.

    Ram is not working in dual channel

    I had this same problem yesterday. I cleaned the bottom of the CPU with alcohol wipes (there was a slight stripe down a row of pads) and made sure the socket pins were not bent (there was one that was slightly lower than the rest) and made sure to install the cooler with even pressure, tightening slowly corner to corner. It did solve the issue eventually. I hope you get it sorted, I know how frustrating it can be.

    Weird temps

    It's not an S or T variant, just the regular i5 so not a low power variant but obviously not the K either. It is running on a z170 board but Ive never seen this before even on T or S skus. Im running aida64 now and core 2 is at 48 (still cool imo) but core 3 is at 33.....That's almost idle temps. (Aida64 doesn't use core 0, it goes from 1-4 not 0-3)

    Weird temps

    Just stress testing the lastest build, i5 6500 and 1060 3gb and getting weird temps. Unusally low on most cores, as expected on core 1. Im used to seeing a few degress difference, upto 5 degress mainly, but 15 degrees difference between core 1 and 2 is weird. I dont believe core 2 maxed out at 35 degrees. Im only using an air cooler. Any input?

    ez debug led cpu (msi b450i , ryzen 2400g)

    Which Bios did you update to? I know on Asrock boards you need to update to a bridge bios before updating to the latest bios to support Ryzen 2....No idea if it's the same with MSI. EDIT - Sorry re-read the thread, you have a 450 board the bios will support Ryzen 2 out the box. If your chip isn't seated properly it could be bent pins or orientation of the chip, though if it was bent pins surely it wouldn't seat at all.....Hmmm....You are sure the chip is the in the correct orientation? No gunk from extra thermal paste under there? Just out of interest why are you switching to the 2400g? Getting rid of your 1060?

    i need help fast

    You said its when you launch or close a game? So you can run games in certain situations? Have you opened up your case to see about dust clogging up your PC? Memtest 86 can test your ram. Coretemp or Realtemp or HWMonitor can test temps and clocks/voltages of your CPU. What are the specs of your PC?
  10. Like was said above just to confirm everything is installed correctly, those screenshots of GPU usage at 8% but temps of 60 degrees make very little sense unless there is something seriously wrong. I didn't even want to mention it but you have got the cable hooked to the output of the GPU? You aren't hooked up to the motherboard right?......I've seen it before......Sorry if this was a patronising suggestion but I've dealt with a fair few Id Ten T problems in my life

    Pc build: Need help

    What are you going to be using the PC for? Looks pretty beastly gaming rig to me, but i'd get a bigger SSD for the boot drive, the Sandisk 480GB ones are going cheap ATM, then you can put your fave games on that drive so they'll be extra snappy loading. If you can get faster RAM it'll perform a bit better, 2933mhz DDR4 worked well in my R5 1600 build.

    I try to install windows 10 and it doesn't work

    You can skip that crap, just click 'offline account' then skip the rest.

    I try to install windows 10 and it doesn't work

    Are you trying to install with a USB drive or DVD?

    Ryzen 7 1700 not posting

    Have you tried to boot with the Spanned volume installed? I'm assuming it's raid0 or similar? I assume you have tried getting to BIOS with no drives installed? A new bios wont recognise another's raid array as a detectable drive. If there was no CPU detected the system wouldn't even power on.
