  1. Yea there appears to be an issue with the x570 taichi with the adata sx8200: When put in the lowest m.2 slot (M2_3) speed is 2200MB/s When put in the middle m.2 slot (M2_2) speed is 2600MB/s When put in the top m.2 slot (M2_1) speed is 2900MB/s I don't think it's a driver issue because if it was, the drive wouldn't speed up and slow down depending on which m.2 slot it was placed in. Also tried with a pcie 3.0 x4 to m.2 adapter and still only got 2900MB/s. On my 8700k+Asrock z370 gamimg k6 I got the full 3200MB/s. Tried updating BIOS to P2.00, nah. Tried benching on linux to see if it was a windows issue, no dice. Load optimized defaults in bios, nada. Overclock RAM in case that's important, nope. Disconnected everything but a GPU, boot SSD, and the adata sx8200, still nope. Tried with 1, 2, and 4 sticks of ram, still 2900MB/s in the top slot. Asrock support has been shockingly unhelpful basically just saying "well it works for us so good luck"
  2. Any one have any ideas? Updated to BIOS version P2.00 still no luck. Tried with AS SSD in case CrystalDiskMark was being weird; same results. Only about 2,200MB/s read. Crystal disk info says the SSD is at PCIe gen3x4 which is correct but it shows the NVMe standard as 1.2 instead of 1.3. Maybe a driver issue?
  3. Why would you want your computer to not be fully utilized? If your game is only using 30% of your GPU and 30% of your CPU then there's a bottleneck somewhere and your not getting the full performance out of your computer that would be possible. You want your GPU to be at 100% and CPU to also be pretty close to 100%.
  4. Hmmm... The Adata sx8200 is an NVMe 1.3 drive while crystal disk info shows that it is working at NVMe 1.2. It still says PCIe 3.0 x4 though. Anyone know if this is the issue? And if it is how do I fix it? I assume it's a software issue / driver issue but as far as I can tell AMD doesn't have specific NVMe drivers as they are built into windows 10.
  5. Hmm. Uninstalled the driver and restarted. Also removed it from device manager and then restarted but still only getting 2,400 MB/s read. Any other ideas?
  6. What is the sata driver called? I see PCI device driver, PSP Driver, Ryzen Power Plan, SMBus Driver.
  7. Yea after the OS hand off Windows loads really fast but the bios time is pretty long.
  8. In CrystalDiskInfo it says transfer mode PCIe 3.0 x4 | PCIe 3.0 x4
  9. Hey guys just bought a 3600 + x570 taichi, updated to latest bios and all AMD drivers installed (I think). I have 3 NVMe ssd's: Adata sx7000 (M2_1) Adata sx8200 (M2_2) Adata sx7000 (M2_3) Both of the Adata sx7000s hit their rated speeds, however the sx8200 tops out at 2,400 MB/s read and 1,600 MB/s write. On my old 8700k + z370 setup the Adata sx8200 hit it's rated speed (3200/1700 MB/s). PS: Using CrystalDiskMark to test speeds. Anyone know what's going on?
  10. But no... Camera lenses are circular, but camera sensors are rectangular, so a completely un-cropped shot would still be a rectangle.
  11. You can clean liquid metal off by using some isopropyl alcohol with a plastic scouring pad (do not use a metal one), put the isopropyl alcohol on the CPU die and then gently rub with the scouring pad. With the copper heat sink you can kinda just go to town, cause it's a piece of metal, it's not gonna care. If isopropyl alcohol doesn't get the liquid metal residue off you can use Arcticlean: https://www.amazon.com/ArctiClean-60ml-Kit-30ml/dp/B0007TOR08 Or this is a bit stronger: https://rockitcool.myshopify.com/products/rockit-cool-cleaning-kit
  12. It doesn't prevent them entirely, but at 240hz the difference between each frame is way less than at 60hz, each tear is smaller, and thus less noticeable. In something like CS:GO where you can average 300+ fps to make full use of the 240hz monitor, I literally have never been bothered by a screen tear.
  13. Because, at least in my case, it doesn't matter. My case being high refresh rate gaming, where at 240hz, I can't see screen tears any ways, so why waste money buying a G-Sync monitor if the G-sync doesn't do anything for me. That's ignoring the fact that frame rate syncing technologies add latency between frames drawn by your graphics card and when they are displayed on your monitor. My case is a bit niche though.
  14. I've heard of some people saying that copper can actually absorb the liquid metal, and people were fixing this by cleaning off the liquid metal, but leaving the old copper+liquid metal alloy on the copper, and just adding more liquid metal. The theory is that once the first application of liquid metal absorbs into the copper, the copper is now "full" and cannot absorb any more liquid metal, meaning that subsequent applications of liquid metal will take longer to dry out. I'm not sure if this idea is correct or not, but maybe it's worth a shot?
