  1. @mayhems91 hahaha thanks for the analogy @TofuHaroto I will make my peace with it. Its probably better to just use 16gb at 3200 than 32gb at 2666 à 2800 at worse timings. (16gb is plenty for my use at the moment). Thank you all for your help!
  2. What I do not understand is, that when the modules are used separately, they do work at full 3200Mhz speed. How is this possible?
  3. So I tried the the results of the DRAM calculator set for 4 modules. (I left "tRFC" on auto, since I my bios does not have the "tRFC (alt)"option). I tried the results for the Hynix and the Samsung memory, no boot unfortunately even with a DRAM voltage on 1,39V. Any other ideas? Reverting back to a bios of January 2019 (version: 7A32v1L, the bios I'm on is supposed to offer "improved OC memory compatibility")
  4. @TofuHaroto That the problem Two of the four dimms are Hynix and the other two are Samsung I changed the core voltage to 1.1V (its that or 1.0875V), It did not work unfortunately. I will play around with the dram calculator for a bit with the "4 module" setting.
  5. @TofuHaroto I'm already on the newest bios (7A32v1NV), or do you know of a newer one? (It has been awhile since MSI released an update for this bord, and the one I'm running is a beta version). I've manually set the DRAM voltage to 1,35V, however it does not help. As you can see on the picture is my core voltage well above 1,09V, its on 1,4V ( I don't think it will be stable when I lower it). I'm running 4 dimms, so the 4 slots are filled. @boggy77 Do I use the Hynix or Samsung as start position? The soc voltage is on its own already quite high no? Thanks for your replies! An
  6. Hi, My system has following specs: - CPU: 2600X - MOBO: MSI Gaming pro carbon X370 (I'm on the latest bios 7A32v1NV) - GPU: ASUS GTX 1070 - RAM: 4x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHZ (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16) off which: -2x8GB Samsung K4A8G085WB-BCPB -2x8GB Hynix H5AN8G8NAFR-TFC Context: I build my system originally with 16GB Vengeance ram (the Hynix version). I could run XMP on 3200MHZ, without any problems. In my dad's new system I used the same Ram-kit as in mine, (his system is having some RAM hiccups as well), long story short, I put his RAM-kit in my system. After the installation of my dad's RAM-kit in my system, I saw that his kit uses Samsung B-dies where mine uses Hynix AFR chips. Problem: When I wanted to put the XMP profile on again in the BIOS, the system power cycled and went back to the "default" 2133mhz. I tried different timings and voltages that I found on the internet, but the highest speed on which the computer would not power cycle and boot is 2800MHZ (16-18-18-38 at 1,35V) I tried DRAM Calculator in an attempt to find stable timings, however the two memory chips give two different results, so I don't really know how to "combine" the two results in a working fashion. (I tried the kits separately and they do work on 3200MHZ XMP, when they are not mixed). As attachment, I provided Thaiphoon burner results and the DRAM calculator results I got. Does anybody have any ideas to get the ram stable at 3200Mhz? Kind regards, Andreas ramsamsung.html ramhynix.html
  7. Thanks for your reply ! On the other hand I could keep the current monitor controllers and configure them as one monitor with Nvidia surround, or do you still see some problems. (I have an GTX 1070)
  8. Hi, I was thinking about a new project. I have two (very) old 17” VGA monitors. Both have a 1280x1024 resolution. I would want to “fuse” them together so I would create an 2048x1280 monitor (It would be a secondary monitor). I would place the two panels in a self made wooden frame/enclosure. I’m only not certain about the execution. Is there a way to have a monitor controller both screens ? Or do I keep de current monitor controllers ? Does anyone have experience with this kind of procedure ? The two monitors in question are: - MAG CY-765 LCD Display - Medion MD 30217 PG (EAN: 29055944) Kind regards, An
  9. I've an update: The original "broken" apple drive is not NVME, it is AHCI/SATA. My motherboad does support SATA and NVME in the M.2 slots. According to the seller, the adapter only works for SATA drives and only for data and not as a boot device. However i still did not manage to fix the drive
  10. hmm too bad , in the meantime the apple-ssd is not at all showing up in the bios "board explorer" (which is weird because windows and linux show it as a 0B drive?) I also tried the ssd power cycle trick, which did not help. would it be worth a shot to buy this adapter? This does state to support the macbook pro 2015 drive where the other does not. Personaly i do not think it would make a difference.
  11. Hmm, i was affraid this would be the case. however if it is completly death, why can i still see it has a samsung controller on it?
  12. thank you for the replay, as far as i know, the adapter is a "stupid" passthrough. The seller specifies its for the macbook air 2013 and up, since those drives are NVME (yes?), i suppose it would be NVME capable.
  13. Hi, I while back my Macbook Pro early 2015, had frozen so i so i pressed the start/stop button to turn it off. When i tried to reboot the system, the famous blinking question mark appeared. Since my Mac was out of warranty, i had to find a solution myself. I bought a samsung Evo 960 250 gb and an adapter (apples M.2 interface is different) and whiteout any problems i installed high sierra, i'm working on the macbook without any problems for 8 months now. A few weeks ago I assembled a new Ryzen system. My motherboard (MSI X370 gaming pro carbon) has two nvme m.2 ports. I ordered a converter, apple interface to m.2. I put the drive with adapter in my computer, it shows up in windows diskmanagement, however it asks me to initialise the disk according to an MBR or GPT(GUID) partition style, both options fail. When i chose gpt style, it gives me a waring that the disk size is smaller than the minimum required space for a gpt drive. In diskpart the "list disk" command indicates a size of 0B instead of the 256 GB and the "detail disk" command indicates a sata disk instead of a NVME device, see picture. I also tried a live version of gparted, the disk does not show up in the window, however when i use in command line the "lshw -class disk -class storage -short" commando, it shows up as a device, also with a detail hardware command, it showed up as a samsung disk, which is of course correct, the drive has a Samsung controller. Is it possible the drive requires some sort of apple handshake before it gives acces to the storage itself? (i tried gparted on the macbook itself it did not show up) Anyone an idea to revive this disk? Kind regards
  14. Hi, I would like to make an external hdd case/ enclousure for two 3,5" WD Blue 3tb drives. I have space in my tower, however this is a noise reduction attempt. I want to be able to turn off the harddrives when I'm not using them. One hdd is used for my steam libary and the other for my media collection. Practical information, my mobo has an usb 3.1 gen 2 concetor, i can easely and cheaply buy an esata pci-add via aliexpress Does anyone know wich interface has the least impact on speed for steam/gaming-use ? I thought the main advantage of estata was the full duplex capability, i don't know if gen 2 usb 3.1 supports this. Which kind of connector/interface should i use ? + details so i can order them online. thanks in advance. SuperAn
  15. @WoodenMarker Thanks for the advice, to clarify, i'm willing to solder. So replacing the HP cooler with a full noctua cooler is not the smartest idea ?
