  1. So I've had my radeon VII card for just under a year now (brought it at launch) and recently I think it's developed a bit of an issue. My PC keeps randomly crashing during gameplay. Instances include stuff like sitting in a queue on overwatch, trying to play the Division 2 in DX12, and if I play any game for around an hour my PC just hard resets. All my drivers are up to date and I'm running the latest version of widows. Does anyone have any tips or tricks that I can use to diagnoses the exact issue, at the moment I've just been using windows event viewer and that all.
  2. I would but the machine isn't posting at all and his Motherboard doesn't have any kind of BIOS flashback feature
  3. So, a few weeks ago I helped a friend assemble their new ryzen 3000 rig. The build went smoothly and everything worked fine. A few days ago my friend was trying to add a SATA SSD to their rig and because of the case layout they had to remove the motherboard first to add the new SSD. After everything was plugged back in the machine no longer posted and the red CPU LED light was showing I wasn't there when he was doing all this so I don't know exactly what happened. (Motherboard is the ROG strix X470-I gaming). We tried putting the CPU into a an x570 asus prime board and while no diagnostics lights stayed on it still didn't post. My friend did try returning the CPU to the retailer but according to them the CPU works fine so now. I have a few theories of what to try (which I'll list down below) but I wanted to see if you guys had any ideas as to what It could be or any suggestions on what to try next. Thanks in advance! Could be a RAM issue, might be worth swapping a RAM sticks to see if one of them has failed Could be a BIOS issue, maybe the BIOS has gone corrupt and now is no longer detecting the CPU correctly might of accidentally bridged the CMOS flash pins so the BIOS has reset Could be a motherboard issue, maybe there's been an issue with the socket?
  4. I meant stuff like looking for used thinkpads and looking out for laptops like the HP stream because of emmc
  5. Yeah some of the advice in it was a little shocking (like the surface having the best keyboard?) but it does have some relevant parts to it as well but yeah after watching it again it seems that most of the more relevant/better advice was geared towards the lower end laptops
  6. LTT actually put out a video recently that you might find useful
  7. If you can get a R5 3600 and a B450 board that has the correct BIOS to run it out of the box then you should definitely get one. It's an absolutely amazing CPU at it's price point. Depending on where you buy the motherboard from they might update the BIOS for you before the board is shipped. It'll come with a Ryzen 3000 series ready sticker on the box.
  8. to be honest I don’t really need the 3700X, i’m mostly be using it for gaming and in games the 3600 OC’d is within 2% of the 3700X at so I can’t really justify the extra money for it. My PC travels to and from university with me hence why I don’t typically consider AIOs
  9. I do like noctuas stuff, the one thing that really puts me off is the colour of the fans
  10. So I've been looking into getting a R5 3600 to replace my R5 1600, I've also been looking into changing my CPU cooler as I'm planning on over-clocking the 3600 as far as it will go while still being stable. I've been thinking of getting the dark rock pro 4 to replace my Cryorig H5 universal because I've heard really good things about it (mostly that it runs practically silent) however i'm a little on the fence about it because by current cooler is can handle up to 160W TDP so I think that the dark rock pro 4 might be a little overkill and I'm honestly not sure if buying a new cooler will be strictly worth it so I'm open to all suggestions. EDIT: my case is the NZXT S340 (I know the dark rock doesn't "technically" fit but I have seen pictures of it in my case with the side panel shut)
  11. First gen LGA1151 boards don't support cannon lake, you'll need to buy a newer motherboard
  12. So, a friend of mine just spent £200 (£150 for the case and £50 for shipping)on this case: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/33016733675.html?pid=808_0000_0109&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.33016733675&aff_trace_key=5757f82f8b474d9dbac8bf3a325b8d3d-1562235357266-09893-UneMJZVf&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=5989amp-MW98RM-6w28RAyEKodndPA1562307348241 Personally, I think he's crazy for spending that type of money for something that looks like that, thought It'd be worth getting a few opinions on it.
  13. the older Corsair VS Series 650 80+ white rated
  14. Is a 650W PSU enough for a Sapphire R9 fury Nitro?
