  1. I'm interested in the Spectre Folio for the new 4 core 8 thread use, also the functionality as the 2-in-1 function would work great with the way my desk is setup. Aka not a lot of room to lift it up and set it down etc. I was planning on getting the Spectre Folio with the i7-10510y and getting an EGPU to put my RX 5600xt in it. I was curious what performance I could expect on destiny 2? I would be fine even if it was the lowest settings lol. Thank you for your help. RX 5600 XT Mech OC MSI i7-10510y 8gb RAM Razer or some external gpu enclosure.
  2. I've basically given up on it - seems to be with the game and the graphics card. Changing ports would sometimes help, but I'd wait for newer drivers. It's not that much of a benefit if you can get above 60 fps.
  3. Double reply or whatever, turned off XMP and my performance went almost double. GPU usage went higher, MHz went to normal numbers. What the coconut.
  4. To start off, Destiny 2 seemed to run better on my RX 580 than my Radeon RX 5600 XT. At times I will get up to 100 fps, but also at times I will get 36-50 fps randomly. It seems like looking at large areas causes it, but my gpu also TANKS its speed. When running normally, it runs at 1360+ MHz, but often it will run at speeds like 600-900 MHz. The temps are normal at around 60*C when playing games. Using the "high" preset, I obtain the frames mentioned above. I am using the newest Adrenaline Drivers, and I have no idea if it's due to software, something I am doing, or if it's just destiny. Specs: Ryzen 5 2600 16 GB RAM 2933 MHz Radeon RX 5600 XT
  5. Hello. I am playing Destiny 2 with a Radeon RX 5600 XT and freesync randomly causes stuttering-lighting effects. It goes away at times run to run, but I am thinking it is a software issue due to it not happening on non-destiny 2 applications / desktop? Just looking for help and information! Monitor: Spectre 24inch 144hz curved. CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 GPU: Radeon RX 5600XT RAM: 16GB kit running at 2933mhz Game: Destiny 2 Issue summary: Freesync causing a dimmer display + lighting stuttering in Destiny 2 Notices; I have done updates, display studies (it supports 44 to 144hz or so freesync), driver resets, and even game-adjust settings. Thank you for your help.
  6. A little bit ago, I went through the process of troubleshooting an HP Laptop. Returned, bought a Lenovo Yoga C930. Amazed with it, but I had one large question to all of those who have 2-in-1 folding laptops; When in tablet mode and setting down your laptop, do you feel at ease knowing the keyboard may be resting on a hard surface? Or, might be snagged on something? I personally love 2-in-1's for multimedia purposes, and just overall availability of choices. I do have a Surface Book 2, but I still prefer the Lenovo Yoga C930. Though, that thought about how the keyboard is downward-facing when put onto a desk is kind of eck. Just wanting to hear others' opinions and maybe even get some photos of what a keyboard may look like after being used as a tablet on hard surfaces for a while? The build on the C930 is amazing, but, I'm sure over time it'll wear down- or get scratched in some way. Despite having a case- I do use the 2-in-1 function quite often.
  7. True to that. BIOS was always up to date, but I really have to assume it was manufacturer interference with cooling and other such.
  8. A few posts ago, I noted that my HP Spectre x360 would have its fans constantly on, it would get incredibly hot, and it would never go into lower clock speeds. Now, the i7-8565u processor in my HP Spectre x360 finally decided to be able to go into lower c-states and throttle a lot less. I'm not even sure what caused it, but I know something was definitely wrong. When first checking with throttlestop and task viewer, CPU 0 would always run at 100%. The others would follow behind when plugged in. I am close to believing that this was a manufacturer issue, and my laptop was unable to go into deeper c-states, included with its CPU speeds running at high constantly. I question if HP managed to do something to mess with the CPU, or was this just a small issue that was not supposed to happen by any means? Either way, as a shout out to anyone else who might have had this issue, or still has this issue, check if your cpu is running core 0 at 100% all the time, and if your c-states don't enable or go to deeper levels. In addition, battery life is now terrific with this device because it can go to those deeper c-states. Genuinely confused and intrigued about all the process I had to go through, only to find that the machine may have fixed its own self, or if I may have done something that I do not even remember.
  9. Hello. On my HP Spectre x360, the keyboard no longer lights up after I use the touchpad. I switched to a microsoft precision driver, and I know that's the issue, but is there a way to re-route the keyboard lighting function when using the touchpad? As a notice- both the keyboard and touchpad work. I changed the touchpad driver because Synaptics wasn't that great.
  10. Did a bit of research and realized that was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much, and it was definitely fun to experiment with TPL if I want to keep the battery life beyond my personal expectations. I managed to set the boost to 4.0 without it overheating or doing any sort of nonsense. Perfect for if I need to do intensive works. Once again, thanks!
  11. I would like to learn about the turbo ratio though. Never saw that. Speaking of undervolting, always bluescreens due to possibly HP management and such. Never saw it as an easy changeable system. Do you mind linking me to an explanation of turbo ratio adjusting? That may be what I was looking for, but the TPL management is still a huge boost in battery / thermals. Seems to do the same thing as undervolting for me. Edit Because I didn't want to double post; THANK YOU for the turbo ratio acknowledgment. Exactly what I was looking for, but the TPL management somehow does pull ahead in battery management! I could technically combine them both, but thanks a lot.
  12. Hey. The easiest way I found to manage things was actually this. I can quickly apply a different TPL if need be for something intensive. Though, the method I use helps quite a bit with thermal throttling. Anyone can do whatever, but I saw just adjusting that one number to be easiest for me.
  13. I had recently got an HP Spectre x360 13 [gem cut] and noticed, like most everyone, that they do run hot and that their fans kick on immediately. HP Command center does not manage the cpu well, and the windows slider is only alright. Also, when plugged in, it manages to reach 4.2-5 GHz constantly. Wasting potential charge and also making it run incredibly hot. The solution I found was with throttlestop. Doing a lot of testing, I ended up not overclocking or using undervolting- but changing the total TPL. Throttlestop - TPL - PP0 Current Limit: I chose 40 as a base for a "performance", but not "overheating" set. It gets up to about 80 degrees celsius running at 4.2 GHz when HP Command is set to recommended, Battery Slider is at high performance, and everything else is enabled. When running a benchmark, it loses NO performance because it doesn't thermal throttle at around 87-90 degrees celsius, though it does power throttle: 2.6-3.5 GHz constant. Battery life lasted a casual 8-10 hours with this setting. When plugged in or unplugged, it ran the same way- unless you use the windows slider and set to "better battery". [It makes the clock less]. I chose 24 as a base for "snappy performance" and "cool comfort" set. It averages 64-70 degrees celsius running at 3.5-4 GHz when everything it set to normal: HP Command set to recommended, battery slider at high performance. When running a benchmark, it actually does a little better at 2.8-3.5GHz constant at around 80-84 degrees celsius. Battery life lasts 12 hours easily for me with this. When plugged in or unplugged, it ran the same way- unless you use the windows slider and set to "better battery". [It makes the clock less]. In summary, the best option to keep your HP Spectre x360 13 gem cut cool is to set the Total Power Limit [pp0] to 40 or 24 depending on what you are looking for. Testing Summary: Max Performance: 46 pp0 current limit - 4.3 GHz constant - 3.5 Benchmark Max Thermal: 24 pp0 current limit - 3.5 to 4.1 GHz constant - 3.6 Benchmark. Max medium: 32 pp0 current limit - 4.0 GHz constant - 3.2 Benchmark. Hope this helps anyone with an HP Spectre x360 13 gem cut, or maybe even others who think their ultrabook is thermally incapable.
  14. Hello. I am looking into buying a motherboard with 6 fans (RGB). The current case I have is an InWin 101. In summary, I am looking for a good/great motherboard with good/great RGB fans. - My budget is not so limited. - Hopefully not too loud? I also do not understand how one "4 RGB fan splitter" on a motherboard can change or manage 6 fans? Thanks for the help.
  15. Once again, I am making a post asking about tech stuff. Now, I am looking into a new motherboard for my: Inwin101 case, AMD Ryzen CPU, and AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU. Also 8x4 GB RAM modules. Looking for a case that: > Supports my Case, CPU, and GPU > Has 4 RAM slots > Works with AMD CPU’s > Has an OK I/O Any suggestions? (Budget: $100)
