  1. These: Corsair 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4 3600MHz CL18 Vengeance LPX And my CPU is an Intel Core i9 7960X 2.8 GHz 22mb And my motherboard is an ASUS WS X299 SAGE Enabled the XMP profile, but disabled Asus multi-core handling since I only have a 750w power so I don't want the board to overclock past Intels specs.
  2. I saw the LTT video about RAM speeds and XMP overclocks and I have this overclock (think I got the same RAM as they used) boosting my RAM from 2330 MHz to 3600 MHz. Now, Linus mentions that even if the system seems stable now (I've stress tested the memory without problems at this time), it can start failing down the line. This leads me to think that I'm risking damage to my system having this overclock. Is it better to just turn off XMP or maybe lower the overclock to a bit under 3600 MHz? I don't want to risk damaging my system, but I don't want to miss out on the higher clock speeds that I paid for.
  3. UPDATE: I enabled XMP but disabled Asus multicore handling. Did a stress test at my 4.0 GHz core and 2.8 Cache frequency in Intel Extreme Tuning and the system seems to be stable. However, this is without the 2080 ti overclocked (only Strix default overclock at 1650 MHz. So where to go from here? Not sure how stable I can overclock my GPU without overloading the whole system on my 750w. Is it possible to do the JayzTwoCents-overclock safely, or would I need a 1000w power for that?
  4. So I've overclocked both my CPU and RTX 2080 ti Strix to a level where I feel they hold without making my rig take off. However, I'm limited to only a 750W power supply, which means I'm afraid the wattage is gonna hit past that if there's any workload that uses both the CPU and GPU at the same time. I have a wattage-meter so I can see the drainage from the wall socket, but the biggest problem is that I don't have any stress tests that test the CPU and GPU at the same time. I use Intel's overclocking manager and the Asus GPU tweak II. So far, if I put my CPU at 4.0 and cache to 2.8 and stress test it, the meter shows around 500-600w, but I guess that's only for the processor. When I play a game like Metro Exodus with everything on highest, RTX on ultra and in 4K DLSS mode, I hit around 530w with the processor only at 30%. I would imagine that if the processor went up to 100% and the GPU also around 100%, that would seriously max out beyond my 750w. Question is, will it ever do that? Is there ever an occasion where both the GPU and CPU works at the same time at 100%? It seems that every task is either using the GPU or CPU primarily, but never both. Question is, how high can I go on my current rig? Theoretically, that is. At the moment, I've only dared to set my CPU at 4.0 clock and cache to 2.8, while my 2080 ti is set to: 1750 clock Nothing added on the memory clock Fans to 45 Power level to 120 Metro crashes if I go higher. I tried setting the 2080 ti to 1800 clock, but that crashed it even more times. I've read however that Metro seems to crash because of overclocking, so I'm not sure if it does so because my overclock fails or is unstable or if the game doesn't work with overclocking. When I looked at JayzTwoCents's overclock of the Strix 2080 ti, he just blasted it up to 1800 core clock, maxed out memory clock, power level to 125 and fans to 100 percent and it was no biggie. He didn't touch the voltage at all, which feels safe, but wouldn't such an overclock just be a very high risk if my processor has a high wattage count when working? I also seem to see in BIOS that my RAM is set at 2800 instead of 3600 MHz and I don't know what that's about? I'm not very experienced at overclocking and I'd rather have a stable overclock than winning any overclocking contests, but since I have both a CPU and GPU that is meant for overclocking, then it's just a waste of money not to do it. But I'm not sure what is safe for my system. Temperature seems to work fine, I have a lot of Noctua fans pulling some air through the rig, and the Kraken on the CPU with two Noctua fans blowing at the radiator on the top ceiling.

    Asus X299 Sage EZ overclocking BSOD

    I think I'll just go with the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, which feels like a better option for a novice overclocker like me. However, I'm not sure how much I can overclock my system. Having a 750w power and the Kraken X52 on a X299 Sage might not give me much room to overclock?

    Asus X299 Sage EZ overclocking BSOD

    Ok, not a BIOS wiz, but I pushed F5 and reset the BIOS settings back to default and now everything seems to work. However, why didn't the EZ tuner change things back to normal when setting it to the "normal computing" setting? Is there a way to overclock without the system going haywire like it just did?
  7. I tried to boost my performance a bit by changing overclocking through the ASUS BIOS settings EZ Tuning Wizard. I set it to "gaming mode" and rebooted. Windows fired up, everything seemed fine and then I get a BSOD when I started Chrome. I did the tuning wizard again and set it to normal computing and thought that things got back to normal, but things just get BSOD again. I used Edge to download Cinebench in order to see if there's a hardware issue and just starting Cinebench created a BSOD. One time the reboot went into windows having serious trouble prompting to need a reset, but could just boot into windows anyway. I'm not sure what happened, shouldn't setting the EZ tuner back to normal computing revert things back? I'm getting seriously sweaty over this issue now since everything that demand performance will cause a BSOD. I have the latest 0905 BIOS installed, latest 1903 Windows 10 installed. Everything in BIOS back to "auto". BSOD message reads: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR, which when googled means something about the hardware.

    New Asus RTX 2080 ti strix stuttering

    I tried to overclock using the EZ guide in BIOS for my Asus X299. But the system bluescreened at just starting Chrome so I set it to normal through the guide but nothing changed. Windows still bluescreens when I start chrome. What happened? Shouldn't setting the BIOS setting back to the previous one just revert everything?

    New Asus RTX 2080 ti strix stuttering

    I'm not really a wiz at overclocking and because my system is a workstation for filmmaking as well I don't want to push it to breakpoint limits. Stability is a must as well. But there sure should be some room for overclocking, right? How do I overclock in that case? At the moment I have the turbo-boost set for the game, so it should reach up to 4 GHz through that? Or is it that the turbo-boost is what's causing the stutters? If I'm going to overclock it, is that done in BIOS? If so, how and what would be a safe bet number to try out with the system I have (Kraken water cooling on my processor and the radiator at the top with two Noctua fans cooling the radiator).
  10. I've just bought a new Asus RTX 2080 to my one-year-old system. So far I've had troubles with windows versions and so on, but re-installed windows 10 at 1903 and everything is now set up with the Strix overclocked to around 1700 MHz. Some games run smooth and some, like "Quake II RTX" at ultra everything runs at around 30 fps, which is understandable since it's a major RTX benchmark. However, I tried to play "Assassin's Creed Odyssey" at ultra everything on my 4K Samsung TV, and it stutters a lot. However, because there are som nice numbers to be seen in the options screen I can see what's going on and there doesn't seem to be a problem with the 2080 ti, but there's something going on at the CPU level. It stutters a lot in some sections like big towns etc. and the MS measurements are all over the place on the CPU graph. Can someone please tell me what's going on here and how I could fix it? Attached images of the graphs.

    Asus RTX 2080 ti Strix - RTX not working

    Thanks all, I went through with just doing the re-install, which is a pain and I'm still managing the system and software installs. But at least my system is up to date now and RTX works!

    Acer X34 P - loosing DP connection

    I recently bought an ACER X34 P and am using it with a DP cable and 120 HZ. But when I'm playing I'm experiencing "drop-outs" of connection; screen goes black and then back to normal with a "DP" sign at the top right, just like when you plug in a source to the screen. It doesn't happen when I'm using windows normally, only rarely will it do so. But in games it happens frequently. I've ruled out cable problems, interference etc. it's not any "sleep mode" or similar. HDMI works fine, but DP get these black screen drop-outs all the time when gaming. I've searched online and there's a few who reportedly has similar problems, but there's no answers, ideas as to why it happens or how to solve it. It doesn't even seem like Acer themselves know what is going on. It's infuriating to have a problem that never gets any answers and people just seem to ignore the problems by getting something else.

    Trying to update to ver 1809 or 1903 - Blue screen

    Isn’t a clean install what you do from a created boot drive (usb drive)? In that case that’s what I did. But you mean going into bios and wipe the drive first?

    Trying to update to ver 1809 or 1903 - Blue screen

    UPDATE: I've tried everything and I tried doing a re-install as well, but the restart sequence still quits. It does so after the 30% mark and then just revert back to 1803. It doesn't matter if I turn off all usual auto-start functions, clean the system or anything. It still behaves in the same way. When I did the re-install process it did, however, show me an error message after the revering back to 1803, when returning to windows: 0x800704B8 - 0x3001A the installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during BEGIN_FIRST_BOOT operation Googling it just showed other people having the problem with the same feedback and no solution. It would be nice if someone had any clue to what is causing this since there seem to be no one online having any clue.

    Asus RTX 2080 ti Strix - RTX not working

    Isn't there any other way? Just re-installing windows and getting all software and production up and running will take a lot of time. Isn't there a way to update windows without wiping the hard drive?
