  1. We haven't tried disabling freesync. I'll give that a go next. The previous owner of the GPU said he didnt have any flickering issues, but of course he could be lying lol
  2. Unfortunately, after about 20 minutes, it flickered again. looks like that was a one time thing. I think it's either got to do with the surge protector hes using (because it is very old) or the electrical wiring in his apartment. That or the power delivery in the monitor itself is broken
  3. It seemed like it was working fine at 60, but we switched to 144 afterwards pretty quickly so it could have been a fluke honestly. I honestly don't know how to read event viewer so i havent tried that but thats definitely a great place to start! I appreciate the suggestion We actually used DDU again and just let windows install the drivers for us instead of going to AMD's website and so far so good. been about 15 mins without a flicker!
  4. Hey everyone, my buddy is having a little trouble with his new PC build. Whenever he starts playing a game at 144hz, his primary 144hz monitor will occasionaly go black for 1 or 2 seconds then pop back on. He can still hear sound and everything, and his secondary, 60hz monitor does not flicker off. We have tried the following: Upping the fan speed on his graphics card to keep it cooler. Re seating and re plugging in the graphics card and power cord Changing the cable (We have tried 2 different HDMI and Displayport cables each) Used DDU to uninstall and re install graphics drivers Tried running at 120hz, no luck Plugged the PC and monitor into different wall sockets Tried different HDMI ports on graphics card My current thought is that it must be something wrong with the monitor's power settings itself, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have any solutions? Any and all recommendations are appreciated! Thank you! His monitor is the AOC C24G1. His graphics card is an XFX RX 580
  5. Hey everyone, My buddy built his first pc, but when we went to enable the XMP profile on his 16gb of Ballistix LT Sport 3200Mhz RAM, it will not go past 2933Mhz. I have verified that the sticks are in the correct dimm slots, I've upped the voltage to 1.4, I've enabled XMP 2.0 profile 1 and set the speed to DDR4-3200 (Although there is a greyed out "DDR4-2933" next to it that i'm curious about), I've tried to put it at just 3000mhz to see if that would work. I'm out of ideas. Does anyone happen to know what the problem is? Could it be that I need a higher quality set of RAM? The model number of the kit he has is BLS2K8G4D32AESB The specs are as follows: CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 Mobo: Asrock B450M Pro4 RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 GPU: RX 580 Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
  6. Hi everyone, I'm about to buy a Ryzen 5 2600X and Gigabyte Aorus X370 Gaming K5 off of someone from reddit, and I had a question about the timestamp he sent me. I was wondering why, in CPU-Z, it says the link width and max supported PCIe lanes is x8 and not x16. I think it could be because it appears he might have other PCIe cards installed in the lower slots, but I just cannot tell for sure. I'll attach the timestamps below, let me know what you guys think. Thanks!
