  1. Thanks. I found a thread that tells me to look for SVID in my BIOS but apparently I can't find it to save my life even with the search function. That's so weird
  2. This might be something to look at, I'll go search around Google to see what's happening. When you say power draw it's "Package power" right? I just did a BIOS update but nothing much changed, if anything.
  3. Uh I did a BIOS update before but I guess I can try to update it via Internet? I'm not that comfortable doing BIOS updates but I'll try. Yes I stopped when the screws stopped turning Is it something solved by BIOS update?
  4. Oh I guess I was worried for nothing. I guess I might get a new cooler and see if temps improve. Thanks for clarifying!
  5. BIOS shows that CPU fans are running at 2000RPM at 100%, is that normal? First time I noticed the problem was with the stock cooler thermal paste. I just bought a CoolerMaster thermal paste and reapplied, still not much difference.
  6. I realize that this topic has been posted before but none of the threads I've searched for has helped so far, so I'm here asking for some help. I've used Afterburner, HWMonitor and HWiNFO and they all show high temps on CPU, while below 10% utilization from Task Manager. Attached images of HWMonitor and HWiNFO I've reapplied thermal paste on the CPU cooler but temps still hasn't improved much. CPU idle temps around 65~75 Celsius and CPU fan running on 100% speed, 2000RPM I've reloaded the default settings to BIOS but still the same. CPU voltage is the default and hanging around 1.36~1.4V The highest temp of 95 Celsius is when I ran a stress test but HWiNFO shows there isn't any thermal throttling happening. My specs are: Mobo: ASUS TUF B450M PRO GAMING CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU Cooler: Stock Ryzen Cooler Memory: Crucial Ballistix 2x8GB 3000Mhz GPU: AMD Sapphire Nitro RX480 I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting this, can anyone point a direction? Much appreciated for any help given Update: Switched power mode from AMD Ryzen High Performance to AMD Ryzen Balanced (apparently even this Ryzen balanced mode has minimum processor power of 99%?) and then now to Windows balanced mode, power consumption dropped from 50W+ to ~34W, it's still high but an improvement. CPU Voltages are all below 1.3V at idle. CPU temps dropped a bit, ranges from 55~65 Celsius now. Another thread I found said to enable SVID in BIOS but I can't find SVID in my BIOS at all, it says without SVID it can't monitor the CPU properly. Still trying to figure out what I can do with BIOS
  7. Thank you! I restored the BIOS and it all works fine now!
  8. CPU temps on the Afterburner picture shows around 50-ish. I don't think it should be throttling at that temperature. Edit: Used the IPDT and temps seem to be fine.
  9. I have an i5 6500, Gigabyte B250M mobo, 16GB RAM @ 2133Hz, RX 480Noticed the highest my CPU usage goes is 68% from Task Manager.Read a few threads, ran Cinebench and CPUZ to check. Power settings has maximum CPU usage at 100%.For curiosity, also ran Afterburner to check CPU usage, curiously it shows 100% while Task Manager shows 68%.The highest clock speed for i5 6500 is 3.2Ghz and 2.2Ghz is exactly 68% of that. Anyone has any idea how to fix this? Might be something with BIOS but I'm entirely unsure of how to weave in and out of BIOSAlbum image: https://imgur.com/a/cyMBXnP
  10. Thanks all for the wonderful replies! This gives a lot of insight into different opinions. I'll look into the pros and cons of each one. And hopefully I'll be able to post my final build as thanks for all your efforts!
  11. Oh I'm still a student right now so I don't think it needs to be that powerful. And it's probably not the most intensive complex modelling. I'm using a 840M right now on a laptop and they still work on it. I read that modelling takes a decent CPU that's why I listed it.
  12. Hi LTT Forums! I'm planning to build my first PC myself and I'm on a budget right now (Preferably £600~800 or USD750~1000 but the lower the better cos I'm not earning my own money yet and yeah...). I've seen a lot of budget builds on YT but they're not all that well rounded at times. I live in the UK right now so the partpicker list would be in pounds (Sorry) Uses: Gaming + Usual stuff + Engineering student CAD Modelling PC Partpicker CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£218.28 @ Aria PC) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (£29.97 @ Eclipse Computers) Motherboard: Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£127.14 @ Eclipse Computers) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£47.99 @ Ebuyer) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£41.99 @ Amazon UK) Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Video Card (£139.98 @ Ebuyer) Power Supply: EVGA 430W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply (£34.99 @ Novatech) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit Total: £640.34 Questions: 1) I don't have a case. It's my first time building and I don't know what budget cases there are. (I was even thinking of an open air rack or something that might be cheaper than a case) 2) I feel like the CPU/Motherboard/RAM could be saved a bit 3) Power supply I chose EVGA from the list of certified ones that's nearest to my wattage cos it's more trusted. Not sure if it's good cos even good manufacturers might sell a bad product 4) A lot of recommendations for the 212 EVO so I picked that one. Might go for a stock cooler cos the CPU is pretty strong as it is now and I might not be going for OC. 5) Might think of going for Team Red on the Graphics card but I saw BitWit's latest budget build using the 1050Ti so I'm requesting for recommendations on that too.
  13. It does? I'll go back to the store and try out the G502 some more. Thanks for the suggestion!
  14. Hi guys! This is my first time posting here. Sorry if I'm in the wrong section... Since this is the thread for peripherals... My main topic today is a debate between getting the G502 or G402 (after watching the G402 LTT video), or even something that you guys would suggest. Here are my key points of consideration, after visiting a Logitech store to try out these mouse myself. I like the infinite scrolling and sideways scrolling of the G502 (For productivity uses, since I have a mouse that has infinite scrolling atm but not sideways scrolling) but I don't think I like the shape of it (Referring to the slope from LMB to RMB) since I kinda claw grip. And thus what I like about the G402 is the shape of the mouse, which is the most important factor in gaming. What would you guys suggest? I saw and tried the G900 and I fell in love with it but the price is pretty high up there.
