  1. Well yes that was my initial plan but only later I figured that higher frequency sticks might not post. Still I might be able to get 2x8GB kit with better timings.
  2. Hi, Over 4 years ago I built a PC for a cousin of mine. The budget was kinda so I had to make some sacrifices. Relevant parts are: ASRock H100M-DGS i5-6400 DDR4 GeIL Pristine, 1x8 GB, 2400MHz, CL16 GP48GB2400C16SC Now he asked me to suggest a RAM upgrade and I'm at a bit of loss. The ark.intel page says the processor supports up to DDR4-2133. The motherboard's QVL page only lists DDR4-2133 sticks but it obviously hasn't been updated for quite some time. The first things that comes to mind is 2x8GB sticks but then what? Is there any point in going for higher frequencies? Will it even boot? As I cannot seem to find any reliable sources I would like to ask for Your help in the matter.
  3. Did you try to use it for overclocking? What frequencies were you able to get? I was trying to make a choice based on the Motherboard Tier List but I just can't make an educated choice between two motherboards within the same tier. For no other reason then prices being reasonable and the motherboards not being flashy the following caught my interest: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XhZFf7/gigabyte-b450-aorus-pro-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-aorus-pro https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Hy97YJ/msi-b450-tomahawk-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-tomahawk https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PCKcCJ/asrock-b450-pro4-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-pro4
  4. 1. Budget & Location Poland I want to spend maximally 1800Euro(~8000 Polish Zloty) for all parts and peripherals including taxes. 2. Aim The system will be used for gaming and for work. I play both new AAA titles and old indie games. As for work all I really need is a few threads to set up a virtual machine. 3. Monitors I plan to use two monitors - my old one and the one I am going to buy. iiYama ProLite E2403WS - 1920x1200 60Hz TN 4. Peripherals I want to buy a new monitor. I was thinking about Acer Predator XB271HUbmiprz - 2560x1440 144Hz IPS G-Sync (2400 Polish Zloty ~ 540Euro) I also want to buy a decent microphone. 5. Why are you upgrading? My old system kicked the bucket. The system I configured is heavily based on the build guide recommendations megathread(wonderful work) with a few exceptions. I would like my PC to run quiet so I went with a midi-tower case to allow for more airflow. Also I would like to use an ATX motherboard instead of a micro ATX so that I can comfortably slot in my old audio card. What might raise a few eyebrows is the choice of a CPU cooler but I always wanted to buy NH-D15 I have a XFX TS P1-650G-TS3X 650W power supply which I bought few months ago and would like to use it in the new system.

EDIT: I am planning to overclock the R5 2600 and buy a new processor for the AM4 socket(perhaps Ryzen 3000) down the line.
  5. Since my GPU is powered by 8+6 PCI-E connector and the PSU has 2 sets of cables with PCI-E connectors I did as you had recommended and plugged in the previously unused cable in the 8 pin connector. Thanks to that the GPU survived 30-minutes FurMark stress test which I guess confirms the idea that the problem was caused by a PSU. Even though the current setup is working properly I still am going to buy a new high quality PSU, this time with a single rail Thank you for your help.
  6. Is there any reliable way to test and confirm that on my own?
  7. I didn't manually overclock the card at all.
  8. A few weeks ago I experienced a problem when the GPU would stop delivering signal and ramp up fans to 100% speed after being treated with heavy load but the rest of the system would seemingly run correctly as I was still able to hear sounds on headphones. I figured the GPU was overheating so I set up an aggressive fan curve and that solved the issue for some time. Something like two weeks ago the problem reemerged and the GPU would occasionally turn off even though temperatures were below 70 degrees Celsius. On Sunday I thoroughly cleaned the cooler and replaced TIM. I removed the old thermal paste using lint-free wipes and isopropyl alcohol. It is also worth mentioning that I was working on a antistatic mat with a wrist wrap that was properly grounded. The GPU is running on low temperatures but every time I start a game or a benchmark I get a "NO SIGNAL" on my monitor after only a few minutes. I attached a screenshot showing a MSI Afterburner report on system statistics after running the FurMark for approximately 3 minutes - I got a "NO SIGNAL" after that. As you can see the highest reported GPU temperature is 68 degrees Celsius with 85% power usage. System specification: i5 2500K @ stock Gigabyte Windforce GTX770; driver version: 398.82 Asus P8H67-M EVO (I know it's a heresy but my old one died.) Mushkin Blackline 2x8GB 1333MHz CL10 730W PSU Samsung 840Pro + 1TB no-name HDD I would really appreciate Your help with solving the issue.
