  1. Asking for a friend. Yesterday, Nvidia announced Adaptive Sync support, with only 12 monitors officially supported (the AOC monitor in the tile is one of them), while those not on the official support list can activate an option in the control panel and try out their luck. My question is, which monitor is better, ignoring what I said earlier. My friend will get the monitor with the better colors and features AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, the lower input lag (if there is a noticeable difference), even if that means getting the Acer monitor and testing his luck with Adaptive Sync, rather than getting the monitor that's guaranteed to work. G2590FX not G2590PX. People get these two mixed all the time. BONUS QUESTION: Is the Viewsonic XG2402 worth a 45% price increase over those two other monitors ? (please answer my initial question first if you can, cause I doubt my friend can afford the Viewsonic monitor, but I'm still curious)
  2. I know. I just wanted to find out how to calculate the difference. It seems to be roughly a 2x in terms of bandwidth
  3. I'm well aware of that. I just like RAW numbers, even if they are a best case scenario is most cases.
  4. I'm having trouble finding how to calculate the difference in performance between Dual Channel and Quad Channel RAM. I know how to calculate RAM timing for Dual Channel, but have no idea if it's different for Quad Channel. I also want to know how to calculate bandwidth for any type, Single, Dual and Quad.

    He will, he just doesn't have the money for it right now.

    Since switching to his monitor games do not detect his resolution, even though Windows does detect it. Games like Fallout 4 have lost all resolution options, the resolution box of the launcher is literally blank. All other games that work, have few resolution options, none matching even a perfect multiplier (DSR) of his resolution. He didn't have this problem on his old PC, which is why I thought it might have something to do with the VGA to HDMI adapter and had hoped it would be easy to fix.

    Didn't have issues on my monitor, no to mention that I have similar issues in different games, hoped there would be an easy fix.

    The GPU is anything but weak. It could run 4x DSR no problem on my monitor, which is 1440x900. The GPU is a 1070 Ti overclocked to 1870mhz core and 9400mhz VRAM.
  9. Asking for a friend He recently bought a new PC, but didn't have the cash to also upgrade his antique LCD monitor, so he was forced to also buy a signal adapter, VGA to HDMI, but now, no games detect his resolution, hell, Fallout 4 won't even launch, it has 0 resolution options what-so-ever. He didn't have this problem on his old PC, neither did I have this error on my monitor while testing it, cause I have a DVI-D connector and so does the GPU. I don't know how to fix this problem for him, any ideas ?
  10. Motherboard Asus B350 Strix CPU Ryzen 5 1600 RAM Patriot Viper 4 3200mhz 16gb PSU Corsair RM750x (2018) VOLTAGES: DRAM 1.42 VDDCR SOC 1.2 VTTDDR 0.725 (default 0.71) VPP_MEM 2.525 (default 2.5) VDDP 0.9 (default) CLDO VDDP default 0.7 (default) Had a lot of problems stabilizing my RAM at Stilt's "EXTREME" profile for shitty Hinyx RAM, but I think I'm close, errors dropped a lot in frequency. However, before I continue I need to know more about the last 4 values (the first two I know of from GamersNexus). Information for overclocking these values is scarce, I need to know safe parameters so I don't fry something. How much higher can I go, and should I touch the last 2 ? What are the last 3 for ?
  11. There is a chance that the Hard Drive may be broken as well, but I didn't have time for thorough testing, and I did test the system with it unplugged. The GPU is running strong at 1850mhz with VRAM at 9600mhz. The PSU readings in HWInfo are within parameters. Also, they can't really shut me down because I'm in the EU, laws are stricter here, and I can always apply a complaint to the Customer Protection Institution, but now I'm just thinking whether I should accept the Motherboard and fire up testing on it, or just stand my ground. After all I did threaten them once.
  12. As I said, the new CPU seems stable, also, don't have a water cooler, but plan on buying a decent air cooler when I know the coast is clear, but I can't buy another Motherboard. This situation just sucks so much, I just don't know what the hell should I do.

Build: CPU - Ryzen 5 1600 Motherboard - ASUS STRIX B350-F GAMING RAM - Patriot Viper 4 Series 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 Dual Channel Kit GPU - ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 Ti STRIX GAMING A8G SSD - ADATA SX8200 240GB HDD - Seagate BarraCuda 2TB (ST2000DM008) PSU - Corsair RMx Series RM750x 2018 Background: From the 1st moment I started using the PC I had issues with it. BIOS Stuttering/Freeze, Boot Menu Freeze, Windows Stuttering/Freeze, Blue Screen (especially when I ran the RAM at advertised speeds) Sound Stuttering etc. I decide to test the system, best I could without replacement parts. Ended up sending the RAM, CPU and Motherboard to Warranty, ended up having both my RAM and CPU replaced, while the motherboard came back with an OK test mark. I reassemble the PC. It's worse than the 1st time. Take everything I said 1st, and double the frequency of the problems, add to that the fact that my Windows got corrupt multiple times, one becoming irreparable, and my USB stick got corrupted a total of 3 times when running the RAM at its advertised frequency. I go on then to retest the components. MemTest86 both sticks of RAM at advertised speeds in slots A2B2 (recommended in the manual). 500 errors in less than 1 minute. I then test both sticks in slots A1B1. Same thing. I then painstakingly test the sticks separately in all 4 slots. A1, A2, many erros, B1, 0 errors, wait, what in the hell ? B2, errors. Ok, go on to test the other stick of RAM in the same fashion, discovered that this stick does errors faster, but again, A1A2B2 many errors, B1 no errors ? I double checked, wait, now the system doesn't boot, the LED near the RAM gets stuck on ORANGE (instead of going through orange/red, green and finally, white where the system boots). This doesn't make any sense. I put it in different slots, sometimes it made my system fail to boot, and kept failing regardless of slot, until I changed the slot, where if it were to work was chance based. Only this stick had this issue. Ok, B1 seems to be magical for some reason, inserted both sticks into it, tested for many hours, 0 errors, running at advertised speeds in XMP. I take the decision to send back the RAM, and also the Motherboard since I believe it wasn't tested right the first time. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the new CPU seems to be stable at 4ghz, but gets super hot. Forward to yesterday, I get the answer that the RAM was faulty, again, but the Motherboard isn't ? (even if I told them all the issue and to test them in pair) Sadly, this is where things get problematic, and where I get to my question. Being drawn out by the small prices, I bought from a company with a poor track record (yeah I know, I'm an idiot), and can't help but think that they're trying to fuck me over. I decided to tell them that I won't accept the package, they repeated to me that the Motherboard came with Test OK. I am no longer in the return period. My questions are: Should I stand my ground or not ? Am I wrong in believing that they failed to test the Motherboard right, again, maybe even maliciously ? Is it possible that all these problems were easily explained by the RAM, and I mean, all, the sound, the bios, the boot menu, the windows, etc. ? Should I purse this war against them ? (I told them that I won't accept anything other than a changed Motherboard or my money back ) I'm confused as hell, and I'm tired, this whole process ate a month of my time...
  14. ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming XGIGABYTE AORUS B450 PROASUS STRIX B350-F GAMINGDon't recommend me any other motherboards. Please, don't take this as me being rude, I'm bound by budget, pricing in my country, and current sales, plus other weird factors so these are literally the best options I could find, I'm certain.I want the best motherboard for Overclocking the CPU, the RAM and the GPU in as stable of a fashion as possible. I have a Ryzen 5 1600 (that can do 4ghz), and yeah, I know this is overkill to being with, it's a complicated situation, due to my 1st motherboard breaking in warranty and me wanting high quality audio.
  15. I know it's not recommende, but I can't avoid it, the PC is in the other side of the room. I plan on using a 1.5/2 meter, thick extension cord. Is it okay ? Will it ruin my UPS ? The UPS is a Kstar Micropower Micro 1200
