  1. My HP Omen 32, a 32" 1440p 75hz flat monitor has no backlight bleed. I bought a Benq ex3203r, a 32" 1440p 144hz curved monitor and it has visible backlight bleed, thought only when the screens basically black, but it's a jarring comparison. I looked into it and it seems backlight bleeds just an acceptable norm but how does my Omen have literally no visible backlight bleed even in pitch black conditions but my way more expensive Benq exhibit bleed? I noticed it when playing the intro to Catherine Full Body 3 days after I purchased the monitor. I was going to use this Monitor for gaming and my flat Omen for editing but am wondering if what's seen in the image is normal or not. Thanks.
  2. What would you recommend between 1440p 75hz and 1080p 144hz. I have a HP Omen 32" QHD 75hz monitor and have never found an issue with the fluidity. My PS4 can only output 60fps and it has never bothered me on my 4k TV playing games like Uncharted 4, Driveclub and Horizon Zero Dawn. I don't even notice screen tearing unless I specifically look for it, then it's obvious, otherwise I just don't notice. I know people hype 144hz to the ends of the Earth but because I haven't tried it I can't say I miss it. My phone is 90hz (OnePlus 7t) so thats the highest frame rate I have seen. Is 1080p 144hz really so God-like? Also, I can afford a 144hz, 1440p 32" monitor (found a deal for £304) but if I don't need to spend on it I'd rather save my money for Big Navi, is it worth? Currently I have a GTX 1070ti (which I will upgrade next gen), 16gb DDR4 3600mhz CAS 16 and a liquid cooled Ryzen 5 3600x. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for all the helpful replies. I won't worry so much about the laptop RAM then.
  4. The new Lenovo IdeaPad 5 laptop I ordered has dual channel 2x8 3200mhz RAM at cl 22 with the Ryzen 7 4800u. My home gaming PC has 2x16 3600mhz RAM at cl 16 with the Ryzen 5 3600x and I'm wondering how different the performance will be in gaming and workstation tasks. I can still cancel my order though everything about this laptop has been purely positive online even with this seemingly slow RAM.
  5. I have the Ryzen 7 4800u in my IdeaPad 5 and the GPU has access to only 512mb RAM, however I opted for the higher 16gb RAM so I can allow more space for GPU utilisation. How do I go about doing this? Thank you.
  6. It hasn't arrived yet and I'll just assume it's one of those faster than some 7200rpm ones. It's the IdeaPad 5
  7. Hello, My laptop has a 256gb nvme SSD and a 1tb 5400rpm hard drive and I am wondering if I can play games fine on the hard drive or if I need to replace it with a SATA III SSD, essentially wasting the hard drive and my spent money (512gb SSD on AliExpress is £40 {$49.62} on sale). I know not every game will have a massive impact on gameplay just because the drive is 5400rpm as I use a PS4 Slim and games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Assassin's Creed Origins run just fine after loading. Nevertheless, I'm not sure if this translates to PC's given a console has insane levels of specialisation. The processor is the Ryzen 7 4800u. Thanks for any replies. https://www.pcgamer.com/game-performance-using-different-storage-media/
  8. Thanks for the replies. However, why not have a wider single heat pipe over 2 heat pipes. What is the advantage? Also, would the Lenovo perform better than the Zenbook at cooling from looking at these two images?
  9. I'm looking at some laptop internals and I have seen a laptop with two heat pipes and one with one heat pipe. If you have no GPU in the laptop and only 1 fan, does having 2 make any difference. It's still just 1 measly fan cooling the CPU do what benefit does splitting it in 2 do, if anything? I can imagine both would thermal throttle just the same if you played the Witcher on it. Thanks!
  10. Hello, Im looking at the new Lenovo Ryzen 4800u laptop and am wondering if I should expand the storage through its 5400rpm hard drive bay 100using a Toshiba hard drive or use it's micro SD card reader with a 100mbps SanDisk Ultra? No idea how fast the card reader is or the realistic performance of the SD card when actually used but 100mbps seems good. https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/ideapad/s-series/IdeaPad-5-15ARE05/p/81YQCTO1WWENGB1/customize? This is the product but the SSD is 512gb and it has no secondary storage. Thanks.
  11. Thanks! Would higher than 3466mhz cl16 ram work on a motherboard that only supports up to that amount? If so, would a 3600mhz cl16 ram just perform at 3466mhz cl16 when installed or do I need to edit XMP?
  12. Thanks I updated my BIOS (it got rid of all the fancy graphics). I would say I want more of a workstation boost, my monitor is 75hz 1440p and normally I get over 75hz ultra, for now (looking at you Cyberpunk 2077). If games won't change dramatically given how consoles just got one Hell of a lot better then I think I can live with the performance I have now. Is 4x8gb much better than 2x16gb as it always looks more expensive?
  13. I did buy another identical kit but it had problems so I returned it. Longer boot times, longer game loading, blue screens. Doesn't Ryzen also do a lot better with faster RAM? I have £700 free to spend but I don't want to buy both if it's not necessary and spend the rest on programs and games and heard you should have 32gb RAM for modelling. My build minus 1 set of returned RAM: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/TCKBD3
  14. I have a Ryzen 5 2600x and 2x8gb Viper 3000mhz cl16 RAM powered by a Gigabyte GTX 1070ti G1 Gaming OC on a B450 MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC with support for up to 3466mhz RAM. I want to upgrade my PC so I have better results in productivity (Fusion 360, Solidworks, Davinci Resolve Studio, Clip Studio Paint Pro) and gaming (Warzone, Star Citizen, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077). What would be a better upgrade between 4x8gb DDR4-3466 cl16 Trident Z RGB RAM or a Ryzen 7 3700x?
