    Sorry, corrected. You should not experience too much of a bottleneck.

    You shouldn't experience much of a bottleneck. I think you're okay.
  3. There is a Ryzen RAM calculator and another tool out there that will greatly help you manually plug in the timings. I used it a few weeks ago when I was having trouble getting 3200mhz RAM to run with a Ryzen 5 system. Just google 'Ryzen calculator' and there are a ton of youtube videos showing you how to do it.
  4. Think this is a decent score for an overclocked 'budget' CPU
  5. Ryzen 5 2400 OC'd to 3800mhz (not stable enough for me at 3.9ghz), 8GB 3200mhz RAM, RX 570 4gb, ASRock B450M HDV Motherboard. Granted, I think you have 6 cores/12 threads, 8 more GB of RAM and a better MB, but yours looks like a terrific score!
  6. Hey there, I don't use a switch and don't believe it's ever happened while using my PC. The problem only seems to occur after waking the PC back up or completely booting up into Win 10 from being turned off. It wouldn't surprise me though if this was due to a Windows update.
  7. They are adapters that you plug into your electrical sockets and use your homes electrical wiring to serve as an ethernet connection. I hope the adapters are still good, they're only about 2 months old. I can try directly plugging the PC into the router and turning off/booting 10 times or so and see if I still have connectivity issues.
  8. Hi everyone, I have a PC that I connect to a nighthawk router via netgear powerline 1000 mbps adapters. In the past 2 weeks, I've noticed that my computer is not always connecting to the network whether I completely boot my computer up or wake it from 'sleep' This seems to be an intermittent problem that happens about 1 out of 3 times I boot or wake the PC. I don't really understand why this is suddenly an issue since nothing has changed. I do know that there is a Windows 10 update causing issues, so I wonder if that's at all related.

    Thanks, typically my CPU is under 70-75C and the GPU under 80C during hour long gaming sessions. However, if I run stress tests (Prime95 or BOINC) the GPU seems to heat up out of control and the CPU gets much hotter than I would like.

    Thanks, I think I have everything to the point where it's a good balance of stability, heat and performance. It seems stable during VR games, but it does heat up quite a bit.

    Lower gaming performance overnight

    Now that I think of it, I got the update too and also noticed a lot more stuttering during VR gaming than usual. Also, very recently my computer will lose its network connection whenever I wake my PC from 'sleep' mode.

    Is Windows by chance still installing the updates? I've noticed that Windows sometimes takes several hours running processes in the background which hinders system performance a bit. What is your CPU usage at idle with everything closed?

    Okay, I may underclock it this weekend and try again. Isn't there a way to use CPU only?

    Is there a way to set it not to use 100% of your GPU time?
