    Graphics card is not giving its 100%

    based on your GPU usage right now you will get the same fps at 1080p but with gpu usage close to 100%
  2. Hi, I want to be able to sync my ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1070 with a Gigabyte z390 Gaming X mobo but neither ASUS AURA Sync nor the Gigabyte RGB Fusion work, is there any software I can use that would sync these two things? I have a custom RGB strip in the case connected to the mobo so these two are synced, I can also connect the strip to the gpu but still one thing will be left out and unsynced, I can set all of them to a single color using 2 softwares but anything else than that is imposible.
  3. fixed my post, was supposed to be "unless" not "if"
  4. Actually people are over exaggerating quite a bit, unless it was memory/cpu/storage then probably nothing would happen at all apart from your pc crashing

    M.2 NVME Drive slower than it should be

    I knew that the difference would be pretty much unnoticeable but I was just curious about why it was the way it was and perhaps if there was something wrong with my drivers etc. Here is the CrystalDiskMark test I did, looks like it's actually as it should be, thanks. http://prntscr.com/nfximt

    M.2 NVME Drive slower than it should be

    I know but the drive is advertised at 3500 MB/s read and 3300 MB/s write, my not only has higher writes than reads which is weird but also they're around 1000MB/s below spec
  7. I just got my new Samsung 970 EVO Plus and migrated everything from my old drive (Samsung 850 EVO) but it is unusually slow in benchmarks and I have no idea why that is, I'm thinking that maybe the drivers are not right but I went into device manager and after clicking look for drivers online it told me that I have all the newest ones. Any Ideas? Benchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/16451208
  8. Hello, I'm looking to add a m.2 nvme ssd into my system (currently only Samsung 850 EVO 500GB). I was looking at these three options but I'm not sure what's different about them apart from the price and maybe one of them being slightly faster so I don't know which one to get. I have a 500GB Toshiba HDD that I use for storing but after using an SSD for so long I would probably get pretty annoyed by the loading times in games (which is the main purpose of this system). Current prices for each (500GB) on amazon uk: 970 EVO: 125 GBP 970 EVO Plus: 108 GBP 970 Pro: 140 GBP PC Specs: Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X i5-8600k @5GHz be quiet!

    Macbook pro 13" with external gpu

    When you say you want a 13" Macbook from 2017 I assume you mean this one and if that's the case then I'm just trying to help especially that you said you want this thing for gaming. In that case you're really going to struggle with a dual core i5 (guessing it's the 6200U), 8GB ram and 128GB of storage. This thing costs $1400 only because it's apple and any other laptop from different company that's exactly the same specs will be around 2x cheaper. All I'm saying is if you do have this money to spend then why not get a better laptop that's going to outperform this macbook by a factor of at least two while being the same or even smaller size (if that's what you need).

    Help buying a new monitor

    Comes down to personal preference, personally I would trade VA for G-Sync any day, TN panels are good when it comes to gaming because of the low response time and the fact that you're just sitting right in front of it so you don't have to worry about color shift, and if you're only going to do gaming or browsing etc there's really no need to get a VA panel. Especially that you can set the colors/contrast to whatever suits you anyway (to a certain degree of course).
  11. I played with it a little and have done a lot of Prime95 v26.6 (blender) testing and I couldn't really get the 5.2GHz to not crash the 4th core, I even went up to 1.450V to test it but it still crashed even at 5.1GHz. So I decided to go down to 5.0GHz with AVX offset off and after even more testing I managed to get it stable at 1.240V (1.248V in CPU-Z and AIDA64). I tested that setting for 2.5 hours and it was stable, also tried to do 5GHz at minimum Vcore possible (1.200V) but I could only get as far as using the browser.

    Macbook pro 13" with external gpu

    Even if, I'd suggest you go for something else. If you do some research you will find a perfect laptop for yourself. In summary, you will do yourself a favor by not buying from Apple

    Macbook pro 13" with external gpu

    Honestly the only advice I can give you and perhaps any good advice anyone can is don't bother with the Macbook, you'll know exactly why if you follow the news. There are literally hundreds of better choices out there and you'll only lose money buying an overpriced laptop that will break and Apple will tell you to buy a new one because they "can't" fix it. If you want something small and thin&light, the other companies offer a tremendously better value and quality. Examples: Thinkpad X1 Carbon (I believe it's exactly the same price while you get an actually good CPU, more ram, storage, comperable display, 2 thunderbolt ports, better battery life etc.), DELL XPS 13, Razer blade stealth and so on. If you want to game and play some games that are relatively undemanding you can also get something in this for factor that has a dedicated GPU built in but overall getting an external one wouldn't be that bad, epecially that RX 580 is still very good for gaming. When it comes to disadvantages, there are a few of course but not necessarily more than a laptop with discrete graphics would have, there is the extra price of the GPU, the price of the housing for that GPU and of course a big disadvantage when it comes to practicality, external GPUs are perfect for people who take their laptop to school/work and then come back home and want something to game on.

    Does higher FPS gives advantage in online gaming?

    From my own experience, it really depends on how you like it and if you're even going to notice it. I recently got a 144Hz monitor (upgraded from 75Hz) and double the fps in fast shooter games like CS:GO, Apex, R6 and others as such is absolutely amazing for me, everything feels so much smoother and I noticed that both my precision and focus on a specific object in the game have gone up massively, also tried to switch to 60Hz after getting used to 144 and I simply can't stand looking at it On the other hand, when my friend came to my house and tried it out he didn't really feel any big difference although he did say that after he came back to his place and played on PS4 he could easily tell that the fps was crap. It may not feel like a big step up when you upgrade but you'd feel the difference after downgrading for sure.
  15. I'll try the 26.6 version and see how it goes, I was running 29.7 before
