  1. Those are more expensive, not to mention it's just an Amp, the amp & dac combo is WAY more expensive. Keep in mind I live in Brazil, so it's much harder and more expensive to have access to this kind of hardware. Well, that's a bummer, I'm really not hyped about my audio quality atm, I feel like it could be considerably better considering it's a studio headphone and all and my onboard sound wouldn't be doing it justice. An enthusiast tier card is way out of my budget, so there's no good cheap solution? I wanted a DAC and Amp combo, it could use more punch, specially in the bass, my old HyperX Cloud II hit much harder (I know it's focused for bass, but still), and the DAC for more clarity, I dunno, I don't know what it could sound like since I've never had a better setup. I can't afford anything in the US$100+ range, so, what would you recommend me?
  2. I'm considering buying this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Creative-Hi-Res-compatible-sound-card-Sound-Blaster-Audigy-Rx-PCI-e-SB-AGY-RX/383194451506?hash=item59382b4e32:g:aIUAAOSwUTxdmKyT I've got a Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro for a couple of years now, but haven't had a good DAC/Amp to drive it, have just been using my onboard ALC892 on my quite old motherboard. The sound is not bad, but it's clearly not making full use of my cans, this is a really good headphone AFAIK, and the sound is just normal, sometimes even losing to my JBL T110 on my phone, so there's clearly room to improve. But I can't afford the always-suggested Schiit combo, that's way too expensive for me, I want something in the same range, under US$90. Is there a better solution? And is this worth it? Also, would it work on a PCI x1? My x1 slot is not PCI-e.
  3. I did that, deleted one by one manually, but there would still be one when I entered my BIOS. I entered Ubuntu by USB stick, deleted all the entries and restarted, and there was an entry again, and I tried a couple of times. Basically, when I installed Ubuntu again, I would have 2 entries again. True, but I didn't think about it at the time and have already given up using dual boot, I'll just use a VM and f* it.
  4. I gave up wasting time on this, got no idea what's is going on, but thanks a lot for the help, really. I decided to stick to a VM to make my life easier, done messing with it lol
  5. It was my bad, don't worry. Sorry I manually set the partition, but it was the 20GB partition I set on VirtualBox, different from the 20GB partition I manually left for Ubuntu when I tried to dual boot. And thanks for the tools, I'll save them over here for whenever I need them I'm using VS Code for C and Intellij for Java atm. Hmm, I might try Etcher, but I'm about to give up and use a VM instead, thanks for the tip, didn't know that one, always used Rufus.
  6. It is working in the VM, so... What now? May the partition type have something to do? My drive is in GPT, and when I use Rufus to flash the ISO to my stick, I change from MBR to GPT. Could this be the cause or something else?
  7. Alright, thanks for the suggestion, if Ubuntu keeps on glitching out, I'll try that Well, I bet, because Linux is no fun at the beginning lol I'm only using it to study and code, because Windows is rather shitty to code on And yeah, it's a gaming PC (it's in my bio), I mostly use Windows, Ubuntu is just for when I want to get something done and not get distracted haha True, I'll download the ISO for the third time now, third time's the charm. And about hardware changes, I changed my GPU since I last used Ubuntu 18, the Ubuntu 19 glitch happened with the new GPU installed (which works fine in Windows, so I can't see it being culprit). And my BIOS hasn't been updated in quite a while since it's an old platform.
  8. Gotcha, will do that rn. I even resetted my BIOS back to my profile I saved months ago and didn't matter, and since I didn't touch anything on it, I doubt it is my BIOS. Also, my Ubuntu 19 started freezing the whole system a week in, after installing Discord (of all things), it actually seems it might be related to this issue, but how, I have no idea, because I deleted the partitions so nothing should've been left. I'm new to Linux, so I really didn't want to have to mess with another distro, I barely can use Ubuntu, which is the OS in my notebook. I'm considering formatting my whole drive, but I really don't want to reinstall Windows all over again.
  9. The second time I downloaded it was by torrent. No recent BIOS update. Even earlier than 18? I had it working at some point, but seems like 19 fucked everything up I don't get the spare pc vm idea, but will try to install the ISO on a VM
  10. I've downloaded the ISO twice, installed it 6 times, removed all Ubuntu bootloader entries from bootmgr and it's still having the same issue, it either shuts off during installation or this happens: Why so? I had Ubuntu 19 installed before, but it glitched out some time after I installed it, so now I'm trying Ubuntu 18.
  11. To sum it up: Windows 10 installed Had Ubuntu 19 installed, it started glitching out, deleted it's partition and changed boot order in BIOS back to Windows Tried to install Ubuntu 18 about 5x now, the one time I managed to install it, it would just constantly freeze and be unusable or shut the PC off at the installation I've got 2 Ubuntu initializers in my BIOS for whatever reason, I've deleted both Ubuntu partitions, one with 128MB and the main one. SanDisk is my ubuntu installer stick
  12. Was messing a bit more with my RAM since I couldn't leave it alone. Tried 1866MHz 10-10-10-27, posted, but was flashing the screen on Windows, so upped VDDIM to 1.6V, stopped flashing the screen, but froze when loading apps, so I upped VDIMM to 1.65V and VCCIO to 1.15V. Will leave a stress test running through the night, but seems stable for normal usage, at the very least. Update: Nvm, I'll stay stock, this fucker just can't. It started spitting errors and fucked up my Windows in Prime95 memory controller and memory stress test, and after I loosen up the timings to 10-11-10-30, it still spit one error and that was enough to know it wouldn't work, so I'll keep the 1600MHz CAS9. Well, it was an interesting journey.
  13. Well, I'm back. And the feedback is: My memory was having none of it Tried everything, even as high as VDIMM 1.75V, VCCSA 1.2V and VCCIO 1.3V (and a lot of combinations before getting to these extreme settings) to try 1866MHz 9-9-9-24 and 1600MHz 7-9-7-21 and nothing worked, without enough voltage the system would just freeze at boot and with high voltages, would just keep power cycling. So yeah, my PC is full of my shit, I guess it's doing it's best and I won't mess with it no more, it's been through enough. Thanks for the information though, guys, really appreciate it.
  14. Probably because it wouldn't hold, usually people can OC one speed step with stock settings, mine's just stubborn (could it be that the sticks came from different kits, although same specs?). Jesus christ, I had heard to not go beyond 1.65V for DDR3, I wouldn't even dare to go for 2V. And VCCSA and VCCIO I just couldn't find solid max safe voltages online, so thanks for that, but are you sure those aren't too high? Because stock is 0.925V and 1.050V for VCCSA and VCCIO, respectively. Well, I know it doesn't work, so I'll start with 1.6V. I really thought I needed to increase VCCIO and VCCSA to get a good OC, are you sure I shouldn't touch them, cuz my IMC might be the stubborn one, right? lol And thanks for the safe range for VDIMM, wanted that. I'll try 2133MHz if I can get 1866MHz stable. Thanks a lot for the tips, I'm used to trial and error and sudden issues, my CPU OC taught me that, it degraded a couple of times when at 4.5GHz in just 6 months, but after I went for 4.4GHz and -0.04V, it's been stable for a year. Thanks a lot for the help guys, I don't know much about memory OC so I needed a starting point with those voltages. And what about other timings? Any secondary or terciary timings I should worry about that is worth my time? Because I've seen a lot of timing tweaking with the Ryzen RAM Calculator, so would like how much that would help. And to OC I go, wish me luck guys, I'll be back with the feedback today or tomorrow.
  15. It looks like a gaming/professional rig to me, will you use it just for gaming or also professional applications? Because if it is just for gaming, I would change: - R7 3700x - X470 - 16GB RAM - 2070s or better - 650w PSU (this PC is not a power hog, you can find calculators online) - A better monitor, 1440p 144Hz IPS or VA, it would be a waste to pair this PC with this monitor
