  1. So I should be okay using the 3D & Extension then, even though It only just comes to 15KG combined.
  2. This is the part that was confusing me, the Z1-3D only takes 8kg and I didn't want to put another 10kg weight on top of that as well.
  3. That was my bad, I mistakenly copied the wrong link from Amazon. I've updated It with the right one (here). It's more the weight combined that I'm concerned about as both monitors support 100x100.
  4. Hello, I'm looking to vertically mount my two monitors due to a purchasing a new desk, I'm having a little trouble trying to figure out If the mounts I've picked out will support my monitors or not. I currently have an Acer Predator X34P and ROG Swift PG278Q. If I were to mount these vertically, would the following stands be sufficient? https://www.scan.co.uk/products/arctic-z1-pro-gen-3-desk-mount-monitor-arm-with-usb-30-hub-vesa-monitors-up-to-49 (For X34P) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07ZZG2TSV/ref=crt_ewc_title_dp_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE (For ROG Swift)
  5. I have a Corsair 240 Air that I've not been pushing too hard until recently, now that games are being played on the system I'm noticing that the fans are so loud that I can't hear them when wearing my headphones on my other system, the other wide of the room. The system is still using stock fans that came with the case and I would like to replace them to reduce noise whilst still keeping great airflow. I have no idea what is good when it comes to fans, I was looking at the Corsair ML120 non rgb as a replacement, is this sufficient or should I look elsewhere?
  6. This is most likely the cause, the fact I'm only running at 1200mhz is going to cause the stuttering etc. I'll purchase a 16GB kit at 3000mhz instead, can't hurt to go a little faster with Ryzen and It's pretty cheap right now. Looking at replacing It with this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07B2Y1N8B/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_5?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1
  7. I originally built this system with the intention of it being nothing but a media server, since then I've installed a RX 570 to do some gaming but noticed that there is some terrible stuttering/fps lag. An example of this is on Two Point Hospital, the graphics are set to High at 1920x1080 and at late game, with more things going on the stuttering increases. If I down the resolution to 1280x720 and even with the settings at low, the fps stays around 30, barely improving by around 5 when moving the mouse around. CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WIFI B350 MEMORY: 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4/2400mhz Dual Channel Memory VIDEO: MSI AMD Radeon RX 570 8GB
  8. My intention was to remove the 2400Mhz and replace it entirely with 16GB 3000/3200. Specifically, this one here.
  9. I ran a benchmark on userbenchmark.com just to see how parts were performing and according to the results, my RAM is only at 36% along with my SSD (Crucial BX500) at 37.9%. I'll update the bios in a second.
  10. A few years ago I purchased a system to be used for everyday tasks along with some light gaming & a second stream machine. At the time, I only purchased 8GB 2400MHz memory as I didn't really intend on doing anything more with the system. Fast forward to 2019 and the system is being used much more with the new inclusion of gaming. I remember reading a few years ago that Ryzen was more reliant on memory speed and as I'm now using 5GB out of the 8GB available I'm thinking It's time for an upgrade. Rather than just purchase another 8GB 2400Mhz stick, I was looking into 3000MHz or 3200MHz - am I right to be looking around those speeds for Ryzen? I'm not sure If the 'memory speed' thing with Ryzen was a major factor or not. The system is laggy even in normal tasks, gaming is very stuttered so I'm assuming that would be the fix seeing as my Task Manager always says I'm running 5GB+ or RAM.
  11. Apologies but I forgot to mention I've already used DDU to reinstall the drivers and I've done a full format which has lead back to the same issues.
  12. A few weeks ago I received my system back from the company that built it, It had been in for repair due to a faulty motherboard & GPU so were replaced. Ever since I've had the system back, I've had crashes during games at any random point, It won't happen in menus and no applications like Chrome, Photoshop etc crash. It's happened in Overwatch, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4 and GTA V. The only thing I can see that is different is my GPU temperatures, I'm running a RTX 2080 XC which is constantly hitting 83c and above even when the fan speed is set to 'Aggressive' or 100% but even then surely that wouldn't be causing them to crash? CPU temps seem to hit below 70c at all times, ambient temps are 17c/20c so shouldn't cause any issues. Can anyone offer any help here in ways that I can possibly troubleshoot the error? I'll list my spec below. Case: be quiet!

  13. Yes, settings are exactly the same. All the way to ultra, 1440p.
