  1. I used the EC FW tool, then i updated the BIOS to F41. I installed my R5 3600 today and it is working fine. The only problem that i have and that i had before is the XMP profile for 3200 MHz still does not work, and my pc refuses to boot with that speed. I thought that by upgrading from the R5 1600 to the R5 3600 my RAM would finally be able to run at 3200 MHz but unfortunately it is not...
  2. Tomorrow i am going to get my new R5 3600 but my BIOS is the F31 (Gigabyte Aorues X470 Gaming Ultra) and it says in the gigabyte website to use that EC FW update tool before updating to F40... I went looking for that update tool but found out in other forums that it is causing problems to a lot of people. So i am kind of afraid to use that tool, maybe i should just update the BIOS to F40 without using the tool... This tool is located in the utility tab below the Bios tab in bigabyte website. (https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-ULTRA-GAMING-rev-10/support#support-dl-utility) Forum discussing the tool - http://forum.gigabyte.us/thread/6906/install-ec-fw-update-tool
  3. X570 motherboard are way overpriced... Waiting for B550 chipset is not worth it for someone who wants to upgrade now (only in 2020) He will be fine with a B450 or X470 motherboard. Oh and i forgot to mention that maybe wait a little bit more for AIB versions of the RX 5700XT with better cooling and you will have a RTX 2070 like performance and get that instead of the RX 580 or gtx 1660ti.
  4. The BIOS are still rolling out, it´s just a matter of time for them to be updated. I believe X470 and B450 boards won´t have much issues. B350 and X370 may have some issues like mentioned by AMD themselves.
  5. What i would do is: get the R5 3600 and the rest of the system, keep your old graphics card for a couple of more months, save money and get something like a GTX 1660Ti.
  6. PCdiga - They have MSI Armor RX 570´s as low as 139,90 € for the 4gb version. Globaldata - 144,90 € for the same model. This is still a very good graphics card for 1080p gaming.
  7. Well the problem stopped by itself, i guess. Or when nvidia released new drivers. I haven´t had that problem again. Also i don´t have that 1080 anymore. I endend up selling it a few months later and got a GTX 1080Ti. So, no specific solution for the problem.
  8. I know about thermal pads on vrm and vram.. But not on the gpu die itself...
  9. I have a few old parts lying around and I decided to build a pc. It's an lga 775 system with a core 2 quad q9650, msi p7n sli platinum, 4gb ddr2 800 mhz, a generic 512gb hdd and a corsair cx500 watts psu. The only component missing was the graphics card. So I went online and searched for a gpu of that era. I found a gtx 580 for 25 euros and In its description the guy selling it said that it was artifacting when he stopped using it about 3 years ago. I was able to negotiate with him since he couldn't confirm that it was even working, and got it for 5 euros. Got home and started the cleaning process. When I opened it and removed the shroud I saw a thermal pad on top of the gpu... And I was like... WTF!? The worst part is that it wasn't even covering the whole gpu... The thermal pads on the vram were also crumbling a part. I have never seen thermal pads on gpus, maybe it was normal back in 2010? I don't know... So I put new thermal pads on the vram and thermal paste on the gpu and now it is working. No artifacts. Yes it can run Crysis!!
  10. Do you think VA panels are that bad ?
  11. Because it is freesync. Not gsync. But if it's gsync compatible its worth to look for. Thanks.
  12. I can't find them. Maybe because I am not from US. Monitors in Europe tend to be quite a bit more expensive. I think.
  13. According to the listed specs it's a TN panel. How it is possible to make it look good as an IPS? I am used to IPS. And when I use my brother's monitor which is TN it just looks horrendous to me. Maybe the MSI Optix will be better since it's VA. But I am afraid of ghosting problems for which VA panels are known for.
  14. Hello everyone. I am on a dillema trying to choose my next monitor. I am looking for a new monitor with the following features: - IPS display - 27 inches - 1440p resolution - at least 144hz - at least 4 ms gtg - gsync or freesync but gsync compatible - sub 500 euros I have been using an Asus VN248H monitor for the past 5 years. It has an IPS display but it's only 60hz. I love this monitor because of its beautiful IPS display, but since I got a gtx 1080 ti I have been trying to up the game and get a faster monitor but to find one where I live with a reasonable price is next to impossible (Azores islands - Portugal). I know that to get a gsync and IPS display I have to pay premium compared to TN or VA counterparts. I have been looking to get this new MSI Optix MAG271CQR which has all the above features except it has a VA panel and it is not gsync and it costs 444 euros on Amazon.es. According to the database available in this forum the msi monitor works with gsync but flickers when there is bigger fluctuations in the fps. IPS gsync options are around 700+ euros. Do you think that msi monitor will be good? Anyone that has experience with it? Thank you.
