    It does a lot of features in one. 

     

    You want to monitor your drive usage maybe if its sluggish.

    I'm running two nvme ssds for my drives. I really doubt it's the drives lol. Hopefully amd post on their site.

    Gotta be a windows brain fart I'm thinking. Or perhaps the reporting software is goofy sometimes.

     

    You could try QuickCpu which is a nice little power tool all in one app. You can control your boost, clocks and even gate cpu cores (core parking).

    This is not an advertisement, I use this tool on all my Warp9-systems.

    What does this utility do? Because I've tried cpuz and looking at things but everything appears normal no matter what. I thought it was just the reporting software messing up but you can feel it's sluggish in anything you do. But a restart brings it back to normal.

    Are you at full utilization when it's at 1.5-16 GHz? It would be normal for it to downclock if it's not being used heavily.

    It stays at that frequency no matter what. I first realized it when I was running heaven and getting like 1/3 of my normal fps. The clock is fixed at that speed for some reason. When I restart my fps goes back to normal with the clock speed change. I thought it was fixed with the new BIOS update but it wasn't. I even tried reseating the CPU but it didn't change anything. It doesn't seem to be a board issue because it happens very rarely but I'm just lost as to why it happen on my zen2 based system but not on my 1700x system.

    Is it something with windows or something with bios. Hhm

     

    I would visit bios every restart for the next few to be sure it's running the correct frequency. If the bios is posted at desired values, Do not save and exit boot windows and compare frequency. If windows shows stuck, restart, visit bios to ensure bios is still set at desired value. 

     

    Don't save and restart. Then put windows into performance mode and see if that helps with the clocks.

    It happens rarely, Everytime it happens I go into BIOS on the next startup and everything looks normal. I'm in high performance profile in windows as well.


  5. So I have a ryzen 3800x and an Asus strix-e x570 mobo. Sometimes on a boot up my CPU is stuck at like 1.5-1.6ghz and after a reboot the processor is running normal stock settings and boosting up to 4.4-4.5ghz. I am on latest Asus bios (1407) and CPU is not overclocked. I also have the DOCP settings up for my ram set at 3600mhz. I have no clue why it does this and haven't been able to find anything out online. If you need anymore data please let me know.

    I was interested to get into this once but got struck by laziness. However I got me some sleeves and heatshrinks on Ebay. Just got me some cheap stuff but thats what I wanted. :P

    Is there a certain kind of sleeve that I would need to get?


  7. I am wanting to do individual sleeving on my cables but have no idea where to source the materials from. I've looked on Amazon but don't really know what kind of sleeving I need to find for the PSU cables. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So with DDC pump's there are 3 different size of impeller. The traditional from Laing (and rebranded 1million times over). The old-school G5 mac version (practically a relic now). And the swift-tech MCP35XXX versions.

     

    EK uses the traditional Laing one (either 1,2,3.1,3.2) and it will share the same height impeller.  

    So I need to find out if my stock ddc uses a Liang style too, right?


  9. Hey so I'm trying to find a better pump for my distribution plate for my case. It uses a ddc pump mounted directly to the plate. I was hoping to change the stock one I have over to an ekwb 3.2 elite. I know the mounting holes for the screws are the same, 50x50. From what I can gather the size of the pumps looks to be generally the same as well. But are there height differences with the impellers? I know my d5 has one that sticks out and ddc is more inside the pump. But idk if it will fit on there well, and Bykski doesn't really seem to keen on helping. Is my only option going to be to order it to try it out?

    It doesn't sound loud in the video. My response was to getting out the air. Ddc pumps in general are louder than d5s. You sacrifice sound and a setup that is cooled by the loop for more head pressure and smaller size.

    Yea I know this, just makes me scratch my head because the same brand pump I had before was silent at the same percentage speed.

    Crank it to 100% for 10-20 seconds... drop to 40-50 for 20 seconds... do that for 5-10 minutes... then crank it to 100% and tip the case forward, back, left, right.  Thrn just let it run at 100% for a while and it should get the rest out over night 

    Did you hear the video, that sound is annoying and it's like that at 50% speed

    Personally have noticed using both, DDC pumps tend to run louder than d5s. If I have the option I'll always choose a d5. Can't say for sure as I haven't seen every d5 on the market, but DDC tend to be more compact as well. Works great if there's clearance issues. Even if space is a limiting factor. 

    Yea I know ddc is louder than D5. It could very well be that it's cause it's an open air case. This is a new pump, was not run dry at all. My last one if I put it at like 55% it was silent. So not too sure whats going on.

    DDC or D5 they both hum while running. The faster the speed the greater the hum.

    Well I got a replacement pump sent to me. The old one if I put it to 55% was silent. This one is always producing some form of a hum. The loop was just refilled yesterday but wasn't running much until now. That's why I'm wondering if it might be just some trapped air bubbles. Or maybe I just have the pump mounted too tightly? It's on a distroplate. This is a video of how it sounds.

    from what I recall it's similar to the 5700xt washer mod on reference cards, it's used to improve contact with the cold plate when using thermal paste by slightly increasing mounting pressure. I'm not sure, but pretty sure with the Radeon VII there was some concern of the gpu die and hbm2 memory surfaces not being flat/even with each other. The radeon vii used a thermal pad right?

    Used the same graphite pad as the 5700xt. But yes there is a possible micro surface difference with the HBM2 stacks

    Yes.  FreeSync is a replacement for V-Sync.  V-Sync prevents tearing by splitting your framerate in half whenever you don't match your monitor's refresh rate.  Adaptive Sync technologies interact with your monitor to lower the refresh rate so it matches your framerate.

    I thought AMD wants freesync active with V-Sync on as well. Could it be that my monitor is expecting a DP1.4 connection instead of the 1.2 cable?


  17. 14 minutes ago, JoostinOnline said:

    Is V-Sync off in the game?  If it's not, or if it's being forced elsewhere, then a drop from 144fps to 143fps will effectively just cut your framerate to 72fps.  It sounds like FreeSync isn't working properly.

    V-Sync should be turned off when freesync is enabled?
