  1. I figured as much. Tarkov (15gb) and Warzone(12-13gb) do eat a lot of memory (and Tarkov has a decent mem leak issue) would the speed difference in ram really make a difference? Rather, more of a difference than amount of ram? 2400mhz is pretty slow especially for Ryzen, would be nice to save some money on not going 32gb, but I just don't know if the 2400 to 3000mhz would be worth the upgrade (when I could just go to 32gb, as well).
  2. Hello all! Been looking for more umph out of my build, looking at upgrading the CPU or RAM at the current moment. Here is my current build and some footnotes: (Some things may be slightly off due to PCP not having it specifically. Case is NZXT H510) https://pcpartpicker.com/list/H73kMc Ryzen 1600 @ 3.6 MSI B450I Gaming Plus mobo CM ML120 AIO MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (no oc) 16gb Ripjaws ram @ 2400 240gb SSD 1TB HD Gamer: 1440p, like my medium-high settings, but will drop for 60+ fps (Again, not upgrading GPU atm, even though I know it'll be worth it to a 2070 in the future) No rending or digital work; Spotify, temp monitor, and usually a stream/Youtube video playing in the background for my "relaxing" games. Main game, and really the only game I have issues with, that I play is Escape from Tarkov. I have seen enough times that CPU and RAM generally play a larger part in performance compared to GPU, especially since my 1070 isn't the worst quality card out. EfT pulls good frames (generally around 50-60 @ 1080p) but does have a frequent amount of stuttering and freezing (the kind that makes the audio loop). Warzone does the same, but much less frequent and with higher frames averaging around 70-80 (1440p). My 1600 will not OC past 3.6, temps never hit above 65c and even went as high a 1.42v. RAM will not OC at all, will crash system within 10min of gaming, sometimes even watching Youtube (R1600 is set for 2667hz and that does not work at all XMP profile wise, again, crashing). Main question is: upgrade the CPU or RAM? Looking at the 3600 for CPU and looking to up RAM to 32gb @ 3000/3200. I feel as though the CPU will be the better option, mainly due to RAM going up in amount may not really do a whole hell of a lot thats noticeable, but the speed might. The upgrade of CPU will be great as the base clock on 3600 is my current OC and the ceiling for OC is higher and more likely to work. Threads/Cores are the same but I am really just banking on the clock speed and updates in the 3600 will pull through will greater performance. Thanks for any and all suggestions!
  3. First time using the program; use ddu and then should I get drivers from Nvidia site or would geforce be okay?
  4. Current Build: Ryzen 5 1600 MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8gb G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 2666 ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 AM4 AMD Promontory B350 I have had my current build for about 45 days now and at first I loved it but I am noticing it dropping in FPS all around recently. Below are some averages from the games I play: League of Legends (Max settings - 1080p) - 120~ League of Legends (Max settings - 1440p) - 110~ Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (Very low settings - 1080p - 60~ Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (Very low settings - 1440p - 50 Doom (Vulkan 1080p, high settings - 160~ I have a 1440p monitor (ran at 144hz) and a simple 1080p monitor that I have done testing on both with. The regular 1080p monitor gives me about 15% more~ fps than the 1440p monitor(even set in 1080 mode it is less than the regular 1080p monitor I have). I have done some research on general FPS outputs for these games, at these settings, with my card and I am definitely falling under the normal. A friend has a GTX 960 and gets better FPS on PUBG, with higher settings, than I do with my 1070 on very low. Is there something I can do to test my card? I feel like it is a dud, all my research is leaning towards a much higher performance than this. Temps of the GPU never go above 65c, PUBG got it the closest with 63c. I also cannot OC this card. I got MSI's Afterburner software and tried to tweak the card when i noticed it start to drop FPS over time and if I up ANY of the settings in Afterburner it crashes the card. Not so much as the computer not having an image, I get flashy, seizure-esk fragments of the programs up at the time that just flash in and out at random. I am at a loss here and I could use some help, I am also new to building computers so I may have missed something simple. All drivers are updated and no aftermarket 'enhancement' programs are used. Side note to show performance lack, my laptop with a 1050ti is matching my 1070 in FPS for both PUBG and LoL, with identical settings. Thank you, Tad
  5. Below is an image of whats happening to me in-game, Battlegrounds, whenever I load it up. Image Internet provider screen just pops up and blocks the game out. I have tried doing a direct connection of my desktop to my modem to try and get around it but the game would not load at all, and when I go modem>router>wired desktop to router, I get this image. And I cannot take a screenshot of it, its just the games logo that shows. I have a new desktop, with the following: Ryzen 5 1600 GTX 1070 Everything on a single SSD 16gb ram, 2444 sp It was working fine last night and today it gives me the message. MY LAPTOP WORKS, which uses wifi only to play and it loads fine. It is just my desktop. Malwarebytes and defend shows nothing on the computer. I have tried offline mode, clean boot, admin open, and the redirect/popup is only in this game. League of Legends has no issues nor does my Chrome. The computer has not been on any sketchy sites (porn, torrents, nothing), literally only been up and running since Thursday evening. I am completely lost and even reinstalled it. I could use some help.
  6. Nope, it's been the 50s(f) where I live, I'm even using a laptop cooler. This just came back from manufacturer too. The rep told me not to play this game so I'm just really disappointed and irritated right now.
  7. Eluktronics Laptop GTX 1050 ti i7 7770hq 240gb SSD This is a brand new laptop from Eluktronics that I bought and it has already been sent BACK to the company for maintenance due to high CPU temps (90+c) and high GPU temps (85+c). I was told they redid the thermal paste and cleaned the case out and that the CPU temps were dropped, which they were, they now max out under gaming load at 70c. But the GPU is still running at 80+celcius. I play Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, which uses Unreal 4 as its engine so I know its a tough game to run but the 1050 ti definitely has the power to run it (I know because it runs max settings at 50+ fps) but the temps are high. Even on all lowest settings and in windowed mode I am still getting 83-88c during gaming. I tried Witcher 3 and got about 80c, and BF1 at around 78. Now this is after they relooked it over and this laptop is only about 1.5 months old and they had it for 2 weeks. Should this laptop be hitting these temps and/or is it even safe for the unit to be getting that hot? I do not want it to burn out of the parts as this cost me a lot of money and needs to last a long time. The biggest kick of all is that the Eluktronics rep I talked to over the phone, after not getting any update emails back for about 4 days, said that they cleaned it out and redid the paste but that I shouldn't run Battlegrounds due to the laptop getting that hot. Now this was advertised as a gaming/performance PC, advertised with a 1050 ti so it should be able to run this game, and most games, even high end stuff, just fine. I am really disappointed with this company and feel gutted over it. I mainly play Battlegrounds but also others that I do play still hit 80c when playing and that worries me for longevity of the laptop. Is this okay, or should I be worried? If this is too high, which I feel that it is, I want to push for a refund because this unit cannot do what it was promoted to do. I don't want to be that guy but I don't want to be out 4 digits either. Thanks all, Tyler
  8. What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better. 144hz Gaming, high-Ultra settings, 60fps+, single monitor. Mainly future-proofing for about 3-4 years. Potential Streaming of 720 quality, but thats iffy but I do think the Ryzen5 1600 is enough If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings) Same as above, main games are PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and LoL. Will be getting Destiny 2 and some various FPS games in the future I am sure. What is your budget (ballpark is okay)? $800-900, less is better. Stuck between 580, 8GB and 1070 In what country are you purchasing your parts?

I feel that my build is solid for what I want, minus the GPU. 580 8GB is a solid unit I am just unsure if I should spend the extra $100 for a 1070 or not. Is the ram + mobo + cpu all good, no issues I am missing? I will be purchasing in the coming weeks, just waiting for the Vega drop to see if prices for 580 8GB fall a little. Will be watching for deals over the next 3-4 weeks. Thanks all!
  9. Figured as much. I honestly may just shoot for a refund at this point unless they do a complete look over and reinstall Windows from scratch. I have a feeling the laptop shell is just not air-rated enough to handle the i7 and 1050.
  10. I understand that laptops, especially gaming ones, have near piss-poor circulation but I feel that even this is high. I am not 100% positive if I can open it up, without voiding any warranty that is. Fans and ports are all clear, used a can of compressed air and had little nothing come out, not even dust. I am definitely leaning towards either a poor thermal paste job or a system error of sorts. Some boots will have it low, some have it really high in temps. Any ideas on what I can do settings wise before I ship her out to try and deal with the heat, or just ship her out?
  11. Eluktronics Brand i7-7700k gtx 1050ti 8gb ram SSD My new performance laptop is just about a month old and is experiencing some nasty temps, even by laptop standards. At rest, I see idle temps at 50c+ regardless of what processes are running. Here is my complete idle temps, this is 10 minutes after booting up. I play League of Legends and Battlegrounds on it, Word for reports and general web browsing. LoL will get it up to to the 80s, Word and web browsing will get it to the mid-high 60s, and Battlegrounds WILL FRY IT! It has overheated to the point of bluescreen/shutdown twice now, with temp reaching 95c+ in all 4 cores. The first time this happened I thought it was a fluke, so I pushed it on. The second time I felt the bottom was searing so I ran CoreTemp just to see and low and behold, 90c+ in all cores during Battlegrounds. I was close to the end of a game so I played it out. As soon as the game ended and I returned to the main menu, the laptop shutdown due to temps. Graphics are set to GPU, not on-board, max CPU% is set to 93 and I am still getting this high of temps, even at idle. I AM sending this in for maintenance because I should not have this issue at all with an expensive, performance laptop. What can I do before I send out to try and settle this issue? I was told it would be checked out and have new paste applied but I feel that it is more than just a poor paste job on the chip. Depending on their response, I will attempt to get a refund. I wanted to try a new brand (away from my reliable Asus) and I am somewhat disappointed with Eluktronics, at the moment. Any and all help, prior to me shipping this thing back for a checkup after only a month, is greatly appreciated.
