  1. So, I decided to try another game other than World of Warcraft. Here I am playing a game called R.U.S.E. I am playing at the highest settings, and getting 50%+ performance out of my card... Is there any reason you could think of that I wouldn't be able to utilize this level of performance while playing World of Warcraft?
  2. Not currently, but I could try and acquisition one tomorrow. But it would seem as if 20% is lower than I've been seeing other people get by far with a laptop display, right?
  3. Yes, I checked on the AMD website to get the most up to date drivers. I only have Intel UHD 620 iGPU, So there should be no conflict. Laptop is HP as well, so I figured the HP accelerator, would be the best choice for comparability. I am finding little to no improvement from iGPU to eGPU, which is concerning. Battery settings are set to performance while charging, so that shouldn't be an issue either.
  4. Have a new laptop with fresh windows install and latest AMD graphics. CPU: i7-8550U GPU: AMD RX 580 16G RAM 512G M.2 SSD Thunderbolt 3 port with eGPU support. Enclosure: HP Omen Accelerator GPU only reaches around 20% load. 20-30FPS Running World of Warcraft on 4/10 default settings. Vsync disabled, DX12. Etc. CPU is always 50% or lower (with background applications running as well) Temps are fine, and this load is consistent from boot up. Does anyone know how to make full utilization out of GPU? Thanks in advance for any help!
  5. Monitor is curved if that adds anything. 2, 8G DIMMs for the RAM. 60Hz display. Leaning around $500-$550. Looking at Facebook marketplace, it seems to be flooded with worse systems for more money though.
  6. Yes. It's a whole build. Nothing special about the case or PSU. Everything runs perfectly. Thanks for the info!
  7. First off, sorry if this is in the wrong section. My brother wants to buy a computer I built a few years back that I use sparingly, but I want to give him a fair price with respect to today's economic value of those pieces. I was wondering if someone could inform me if $800 is too high, too low, or roughly accurate for the build listed below. Monitor: off-brand 32" 1080p Keyboard: razer chroma v2 CPU: i5-4440 GPU: GTX 1070 Memory: 16G Storage: 512G SSD (over SATA) & 1TBHDD Some substandard motherboard. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thank you!
  8. I used a third-party program to detect the CPU temperature. Sorry for the delayed response. College is killer.
  9. Yeah, that's what I am starting to realize. I think my current plan, since I have, in my belief, completed the realistic troubleshooting steps, is to replace the CPU/motherboard. Would you agree with this step, or do you think that there would be a better resolution prior to calling it quits on the CPU?
  10. Stock cooler. But I have never seen a stock cooler run at that temperature at idle. I would understand it being a little hotter, but 60's for idle?
  11. No, I don't mess with overclocking. It's for my little brother (13) , he won't be able to tell the difference anyways.
  12. Say it were a damaged CPU component, how would one be able to narrow that down to be sure? Thanks again for the help.
  13. Thought about that too, however, I have remounted it a couple of times, each time re-applying thermal compound just to rule out both the thermal compound and heat-sink sitting. Is it possible that if the CPU was damaged through time when it shut-off that it is not runs hot because of a short of some sort by heat-warping?
  14. 1. Just cleaned it with Isopropyl Alcohol and re-applied thermal compound. 2. Fan is operating properly, or at least it's spinning at a speed where I can't count rotations without help from software. 3. Perhaps, but that wouldn't explain the random shut-offs. 4. Just re-applied with some pretty premium stuff.
