  1. I've noticed that sometimes my RGB blinks to random colour for a fraction of a second when the colours are shifting. It is intermittent but happens when there is spectrum cycling, like when a colour fades to another. This video was shot on a potato in slo-mo mode, but you can see around 2 seconds in, on the rear exhaust fan the colours start to shift to a different colour, but shoots off to a random colour, then go back to resume the fade. This happens to all the case fan lights at the same time. Anyone experience this? Latest Aura software version. Currently using 1 ADD header on the ASUS R6E mobo to sync these: 6 TT Riing ADD RGB fans on 1 TT sync controller with sata power. 3 light strips on Evolv X case And these in the RAM slots 8x sticks of Trident RGB kit Aura sync set to 120 ADD strip lights in config (this is the max).
  2. If you absolutely have to play games while mobile, suggest using high voltage power bank capable of charging laptops. I've not done this myself but I cant see this will buy you much juice at full clocks.
  3. Seems legit. The multiplier on that is 4-23 with no turbo. So it is definitely within normal frequency range. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88180/intel-core-i3-6100u-processor-3m-cache-2-30-ghz.html Its just the power profile/battery holding the clocks back.
  4. Change your power plan profile to high performance. Go to advanced settings and set Processor power management to max. Note: you will drain the battery FAST
  5. Vdroop happens because the draw is not constant, the more load on the CPU the lower the voltage droops due to it being "consumed" by the CPU. This is normal. LLC combats this by giving more voltage when and where deemed necessary more levels = more voltage + more heat. But the take away is that if you are not experiencing any stability or performance issues, this voltage droop should be little cause for concern. If anything you should always aim to use as little voltage as possible while remaining stable to lower your temps and preserve life span of the CPU. If everything is stable and performing as expected then the CPU voltage is just an arbitrary number.
  6. Alright last ditch attempt. Complete disassembly. Rebuild outside of the case. on a test bench or on top of the mobo box. Ensure all connectors are Gucci. Try booting with GPU in a different PCIe slot. Try booting with 1 stick of memory. If that does not do it, RMA the lot for the least amount of headache, although getting an RMA to begin with annoying enough. Good luck.
  7. Only last thing I would suggest you try is pull CMOS battery out to clear, replace and reboot. Not going to lie, but I am out of ideas. Maybe someone else has some suggestions?
  8. Move the USBs to different slots. Try again. Not having anything plugged in will give this error code. If you have a spare Keyb+mo, try those instead. Also worth mentioning check to see if monitor is plugged into GPU IO not mobo IO.
  9. Considering that the lowest number the POST codes start from is 10 on this board (as per the manual anyway). I'd say it more likely to be a D7 then and 07. This usually means something is up with your peripherals. What do you have connected if any at all? and what ports? Try moving them around different ports, or use a different set.
  10. Suggest, taking a close look at the manual for the codes. https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-MASTER-rev-10/support#support-manual Post code 15 is a normal boot code, not error. Post code 07 isn't on the list from Gigabyte Aorus master. It is on the MSI MEG board though. Are you sure its not a D7? This just means you have a problem with peripherals. Try moving them to different USB ports, or plugging something else in, or anything at all for that matter.
  11. You might be able to shave off a few seconds by lowering the boot logo times and boot order in BIOS, although it sounds deeper with a hardware recognition problem. I remember having a PS3 controller plugged into an old AMD Athlon system many years ago that caused my computer boot to take a full minute more than normal, check your peripherals for anything that isn't necessary.
  12. I can't make a recommendation on a specific board, but a B450 chipset would suit you just fine and is very affordable. Assuming you won't be overclocking or upgrading the CPU to a 3rd Gen anytime soon.
  13. Current top end GPUs don't even fully utilise it. You'd be waiting a long long time before they do. By then the x570 boards of today will be outdated and new boards with new features will be out. Suggest you don't try to future proof as there's no real such thing anymore, or ever was to be honest. Buy for current/very near future, budget for realistic usage scenario, upgrade only when needed.
  14. x570 is overkill, only reason to get one of those is for PCI-e 4.0 which won't be be utilised effectively unless you go multi high end GPUs. Even then it might not present good performance to value ratio.
  15. In all honesty, if the Vdroop is causing you concern but not causing you stability issues, you could get away with not running any benchmarks at all, but that is usually seen as heresy and punishable by exile to the console peasants camp. Undervolting won't damage a cpu, just might damage your K/DA if you crash mid game. Intel Speed step only lowers voltage and speed for when you don't need it with the aim to prolong the life of the CPU and the money in your wallet. If these are not an immediate concern, then yes disable speed step and give it some more LLC levels in BIOS.
