  1. Hey! So I have a Ryzen 3 1200 paired with an A320 motherboard (I know, I know, but I was on a super tight budget to upgrade from my dual core) and for some reason my cpu just refuses to go to the advertised 3.4 boost clock. Even when it’s at 100% it won’t go above 3.1. I know the a320 chipset doesn’t support overclocking but that doesn’t affect boost clock does it? Just hoping to get a bit more performance I guess
  2. According to afterburner my cpu isnt even getting to 100% and it’s staying well below 70° so I don’t think so. It’s just at stock speeds with the AMD wraith cooler
  3. Sorry. I should also mention my friend who’s running an intel system with the same card as me is having the same issue. With 8gb of ram and a penthouse g4560.
  4. So I got this card about a year ago, and it’s been fine but I’ve been having a frustrating issue recently. Specifically in rainbow six siege, Ive had an issue where my FPS goes down to the 50’s out of nowhere, and going to 100% usage according to afterburner. But if I tab out of the game and tab back in, it fixes itself for a short time before doing it again. Temperature is staying cool and as far as I know this is only happening with siege. I’ve updated my drivers because I haven’t in a few months and it seemed to make it happen slightly less but overall no real change. This is happening on competitive settings (Most things set to low or medium with the exception of shadows being set to high) and it seems that no matter if I put everything to the very lowest or put it up to ultra it does the same thing. Other than that, it’s been working just fine in adobe premiere and photoshop. My system: Ryzen 3 1200 ASUS RX 570 (4gb) 16gb ddr4 @2666 120g ssd 1tb hdd 500w psu
  5. Okay. Could I plug in my boot drive just for the sake of reinstalling or would I have to do that before I swapped the stuff out.
  6. That’s what I was thinking. What all would be entailed in that upgrade? Just a quick swap and I’m good?
  7. The newest I could go for is an i5 7400. I wouldn’t mind replacing the motherboard and cpu but I already have DDR4 so I could use what I have there. Right?
  8. Not entirely sure....not huge but enough for something nice. Probably more midrange? I have an RX 570
  9. Okay, so basically I have this system already that currently has a Pentium G4560 and I’ve been looking to upgrade for a while but I’m currently about to order parts and am trying to decide what would be the best course of action. I know it’s starting to get to be a slightly older socket but basically I’m trying to decide if I should get an i5 7400 or replace my motherboard and CPU for the AM4 socket. I’m not sure how either of those upgrades would be difficulty wise as I haven’t touched my motherboard in like 2 years and if it’s gonna be a pain to upgrade I’d rather get the i5. Is it as easy as just switching it out and plugging it back in? Or are there more steps to it then that. If I could get some help from someone more familiar with this that would be awesome! Can’t wait to get a quad core.
  10. I guess I'm just used to having Geforce experience and stuff like that with Nvidia. It'll probably be good for me to branch out I guess. It's hard to not take a 150$ sale on an RGB RX570 but its just unfamiliar I guess.
  11. So ive got about a 150$ budget for a new graphics card. I was planning on upgrading soon anyways but then my I was a dumbass and spilled water through my case and broke my old graphics card so I can't sell it for much anymore. So now I've got significantly less money to buy a new one. I'm not really sure what to buy because I've never had an AMD card but the RX570 is having some really good sales where I'm at right now for around 150$ but I feel safer(?) going with an Nvidia card like a GTX 1050ti or a 1060 but both of those are selling for more than my budget at the moment. What would you recommend? And could someone help me weigh the benefits of going with which card?
  12. So I'm trying to sell this older Dell XPS Ultrabook and I go to restart the thing and it shows me a message telling me that I need 3.9 Trillion gigabytes in order to restart it...I'm not kidding. I don't even know where to begin to fix that because it's still running windows 7 and there's no other option to really wipe the hard drive and stuff so like, I'm pretty stuck. I'm not sure what to even try so I'm hoping someone here can help me figure it out.
  13. I reseated the card the night it first went black on me, then I kinda just angrily went to bed but when I woke up the next morning it started working-ish again. One thing I just thought of tho is that I did have kind of an aggressive overclock on the card before this happened, could that have done anything?
