  1. I don't see how a CX750M Grey label could be the problem since it meets requirements for the V56 but I suppose its a possibility.
  2. Alright, how do I compensate for the performance loss when setting the power limit to -50? @Streetguru
  3. Nah I removed afterburner from the equation to see if it would help and set everything in wattman instead.
  4. Where's the bios switch on them? Could have a try at using the 2nd bios.
  5. tried +50 last night, didn't work. Gonna try -50% when I get home. The RAM frequency and timings were done by me, my XMP profile only goes up to 2800 C16.
  6. Hey, need a little help with my new GPU. It keeps black screening in games and then the computer starts up again, I've tried using 2 power cables instead of daisy chaining, I've tried DDU and driver reinstall and I've tried to lock my memory voltages and memory clock speeds. It's an MSI Vega 56 (not airboost or morpheus), can be flashed to 64. Anyone got any idea of what's going on with it? Core specs of my system for those who need it: Ryzen 3 1200 (stock) MSI Vega 56 8GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3133 C15 Corsair CX750M Grey Label I'm upgrading to a 3600 within the next couple months, just thought I'd mention that before I get someone who goes off topic and talks about my CPU.
  7. Why not just program in something different? Plenty of different 3D stuff out there, why not DX or vulkan?
  8. Go for a nice 850 Evo 500gb. Don't need a 1tb SSD unless you're only putting 1 drive in. Plenty say Samsung is overrated but they are the best for a reason: speed and reliability like no others. There are some other good SSDs out there though, maybe get something from crucial or teamgroup if you don't want to go Samsung.
  9. I'd imagine so, they are designed to overclock after all. Dunno if it'd handle a ryzen 9 though, might want to do a bit of research on that.
  10. Personally wouldn't bother investing in X570, just get yourself a nice cheap B450/X470 board. I have an ASRock B450M Pro4 and it's more than sufficient for me, there's a zen2 BIOS for it now too so maybe get something cheap alongside the 3600 like an Athlon 200GE just to update the bios then sell it. I'd imagine that you won't need to upgrade the bios though asmine came with the zen2 update preinstalled.
  11. Well, it just did another little shutdown, no voltage or temp spikes from what I saw. Doubt it's my ram either, I tend to run a memtest86 at least once every week to ensure there's no faults with my ram.
  12. I get what you meant, but I'm saying if I returned to linux (because windows is a ram hog) then I wouldn't be able to play 2 of my most frequently played titles.
  13. BudgetBuildsOfficial is actually one of my favourite channels aside from Linus and Jay, mostly because its like having scrapyard wars all year round and you can actually pick up on how to get a decent rig for cheap using that channel. Discord community for that channel is pretty chill too, everyone seems to share love for tech and (most) of us love scrapyard wars so it's an ideal channel for us. Linus doing a europe based scrapyard wars would be fun though :).
