  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.
  14. Read my second post please, even with side panel removed they're hitting 76c. It can't be airflow related, must be a bad paste job at this point.
  15. I removed the side panel and did get a drop in temperatures, It wasn't anything huge though as It dropped from 80c to 76c and even then began to climb despite having the fans cranked all the way up.
  16. Yesterday I received an RTX 2080 XC as part of a warranty exchange program with my retailer. I previously had a GTX 1080 that I only saw rise above 70c when It was 25c+ in my room. I've played a few rounds of Battlefield V, Overwatch & some GTA V and noticed that all my 2080 XC temps are hitting 80c+ with a high fan speed, I've used a custom fan curve in EVGA Precision X1 and even tried ramping up to 100% fan speed to see what this would do, even then It wouldn't drop below 79c. I'm not sure what I'm expecting in terms of any reply, has anyone else suffered a similar issue? Case: be quiet!

  17. Over the past two months I've had an odd issue shown here: https://imgur.com/a/Oy8nhi6 The only way I can get it to stop is by restarting the system completely, not by turning the monitor. Earlier today, a new issue appeared which is shown here: https://imgur.com/a/J8mnlc6 I haven't been able to get this to disappear as of yet, I'm going to try different cables, etc and update this as I go.
  18. Anyone else able to offer any input?
  19. The mount doesn't bother me at all and as It's not being used for any PC gaming the freesync/g-sync isn't an issue either. The viewing angles issue is a surprise though but I guess I'll just take a risk, If It's truly awful then I'll try and return it. I might just have to get it off Amazon and save myself a lot of hassle If I do have to return it.
  20. I've been looking around and I can't actually find any reviews on the monitor I specified so It's left me unsure on whether It's worth ordering or not.
  21. I'm looking into purchasing a second monitor that will be used as a second screen for streaming, movie/tv watching and also for a PS4 Pro from time to time. I've come across the iiyama X3272UHS-B1 but I know next to nothing about the brand. The price seems extremely good for the product, given the size, panel type etc. Can anyone offer any input here, If you have/had experience with iiyama please?
  22. Assuming this is still true in the 4GB version? The 580 would only be £50 more expensive and offer a significant improvement so I'm sure I can find the cash.
  23. I'm looking to purchase a graphics card for other system as It's now being used. It's running a Ryzen 1600 currently with a graphics card in there equivalent to a potato in a RX 230 or 240 I believe. The system will be used for daily tasks such as internet browsing, watching videos, photo editing and also playing games at 1080p. I'm not talking the top end games but It would be nice to have be able to play some future games at Medium/High If possible. I don't really know the lower end of the market when It comes to GPUs so I'd really appreciate some input.
