  1. Nice setup, I like the little things you put in the case itself... BUT That prevents the airflow, and that can cause for the temps to go high. Also, I see you are using the Stock AMD Cooler, you may want to go for a good aftermarket air cooler. The behavior you are seeing is due to CPU throttling, and that happens when the CPU heats up. I know you said you are on a budget, but you do need to replace the Stock AMD cooler, as during gaming and other CPU intensive tasks, the system will throttle down the CPU. Noctua is a good brand. Or something similar... https://noctua.at/en/products/cpu-cooler-retail
  2. Need more info. HWInfo results, the temps of the GPU when using 2 monitors, the voltage from the rails. What resolution are you using the 2 monitors at? Also, in the GPU Settings, which monitor is the primary monitor? This is not normal behavior, and I am sure there is a solution, we just have to look in the right places.
  3. Are you still on 1903/1909?
  4. If this is a new build, why is there so much dust in there case... Just curious...
  5. If you are using Win101903/1909, that has a bug and would not let you boot. Google that, see if you can get a copy of 1809/1803 and see if that works...

    Ok, do this: Shut down the PC. Pull the power cable so that there is NO power going to the PC. Press the start button for 15 secs. leave the PC like this for about 5 minutes. Plug in the power cable restart the PC, and do not touch any keys, let it do it's thing. let us know what happens.

This freaking looks CRAZY!! Post CRAZY Cases that you have seen...
  8. What that means is that if you use only one of these slots, both are capable of x16 each ONLY.
  9. Post pics of your case, open showing how you have fans installed. Is the front panel a mesh or glass/plastic? There is NO reason why the case should be that hot. Also, it seems these temps are on the higher side for idling as well...158-176 Degree F is way too hot for the system to not have any major issues. How is your power supply installed? The fan should be facing down, there is a vent at the bottom for the exhaust from the PSU.
  10. Alright.. There is the 24 pin power and then there is also the 8 pin power to the MB.. make sure that is plugged in too. Also,make sure that the CPU cooler is not put on too tight...
  11. NVMe is sharing the bandwidth with the PCIe GPU, read the manual, see which PCIe lanes share resources. Take apic of your setup Hardware wise, we would like to see how you have everything set up.
  12. It could be a bad PSU. Also, make sure you are plugging in the power connectors for the GPU, the PCIe power connectors look the same as well... If you dont get the 1803, you can try 1809 as well...

As for the 5700 not working and 570 working, it is AMD. When I was building my rig about 8 months ago, I had also picked up the 5700 as it was cheaper, but after Installing it, I saw a whole bunch of issues, with fan noise, glitches and all that, over the crappy drivers that they have, so I returned it within 3 days, I also had an older GPU, I dont remember which one and that worked just fine. I bought the RTX2060, and have never had an issue playing anything at Max settings 1440 and 144 Hz. I am never buying an AMD GPU ever...
