  1. System: 2070 super Zotac AMP! Extreme My case: Fractal Design Meshify C Airflow: 2x 140 mm intake Noctua fans, 2x exhaust 120mm fans CPU Cooler: Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X Mobo: Asus x570 Tuf Temps: Temps while gaming were around 70-72 C. idle temps on GPU: 31 C load temps before undervolting: 71 C (1068 V at 2055 Mhz) load temps after undervolting: 63 C (1000V at 2055 MHz) So I'm a bit uncertain if I did everything correctly. Basically what I did was: 1. Check my max MHz and V under load on GPUZ and/or HWMonitor 2. Open MSI Afterburner and under settings check every box under compatibility properties to enable voltage monitoring 3. Press ctrl + F and select a desired voltage and drag it to the max MHz level seen in previous load testing (mine was 2055 MHz) 4. Press L to lock it 5. Run tests to see if it is stable 6. Unlock the point after confirming that it's stable and save the profile on MSI Afterburner My questions: 1. Did I do everything correctly? Will the MSI profile load itself every time I start windows? 2. Are my results alright? 3. Should the curve be flat after the point that I locked then unlocked? 4. If I want to improve the performance, is it OK to overclock my GPU after I "undervolted" it? (I'm aware I'll get worse results than straight OCing it) How should I proceed doing that?
  2. I think I messed up with the thermal paste. Today I bought Grizzly kryonaut thermal paste and I will reapply the paste on the weekend and play with the fans a bit. I read here that somebody tried out different fan setups for this case and ended up having exactly what I have. Gamers nexus came to a similar conclusion. It was positive pressure, 2x iintake at the front, 1x exhaust at the back and 1x exhaust at the top.
  3. When I use furmark I get 64C on my CPU. During gaming it goes over 70. I realized it had to do with my GPU because during CPU stress test the GPU is idle. If both are running, they both generate heat. I just need to get the heat out of the case. SpeedFan doesn't recognize my mobo. Can you by any chance recommend any good software to adjust the fan curves or am I forced to do it in BIOS?
  4. I don't know if they are using Furmark. There's always a chance they're not telling the truth but here you go: 1. 2.
  5. Yeah I'll spread a thin layer of it. I'd prefer keeping the dust filter. 2x 140mm 1500RPM fans should draw in enough air but I think they are just running on low RPM because ithey're set on automatic. The fans are so quiet I wouldn't mind bumping the speed a little bit up to further reduce the temps. I'm just not 100% sure how to balance the RPMs between 2x 140mm intake fans and 2x exhaust fans.
  6. I can give it a try and tinker the curves a bit. Btw do you have any idea why can't I see my fans in SpeedFan but only in BIOS?
  7. They are not critical but some people are achieving same temps with stock cooler and only 2 case fans and that's signaling me that something is not optimized. I think my fans curves are not ideal. I never adjusted them before that's why I'm a bit unsure what to do.
  8. My system:Motherboard: Asus TUF x570 plus with Wi Fi CPU: Ryzen 3700X CPU Cooler: Dark Rock Pro 4GPU: 2070 Super Zotac AMD! Extreme Fans: 2x intake Noctua 140mm redux 1500 RPM PWM fans, 1x exhaust at the back 120mm Fractal Design, 1x exhaust at the top 120mm Fractal Design (the ones that come with the case) I did NOT overclock my GPU or CPU My temps: Ambient temp: 21-22 C CPU idle: ca. 45 C CPU under load: 67-70 C (Furmark CPU Burner) GPU under load: 80 C (Furmark) While gaming the temps are a few degrees lower than under full load I believe my temps are a bit too high considering what case / fans and CPU cooler I have. I believe I messed up when applying the thermal paste and I didn't adjust any fan speeds. I would like somebody advise me how to optimize my airflow to reduce the temps. 1. I bought Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut today and I will apply it on the weekend. Should I use the spread method advised by team grizzly or some other? 2. One of the exhaust fans is connected to AIO port on the motherboard, is this a problem or should I connect both exhaust fans to one connector and connect both fans to one PWM port on the mobo? 3. Probably the most important question: How should I adjust the fan speeds in BIOS? Is there an ideal fan curve I should be aiming for? SpeedFan doesn't show case fans, only GPU and CPU so I guess I have to use BIOS 4. Should I change any settings for the CPU or GPU? Thanks!
  9. Don't know if you already ordered one but I got mine today and after a few hours I'm super satisfied. No crashes, lower temps and more FPS. If you can add another 70-100€ I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
  10. As the title says, does anybody know if this will work? I'm returning my 5700 xt cause of endless driver issues and I decided to replace it with a 2070 super but the monitor I have has freesync. How can I find out if the freesync will work?
  11. Ah I found it. 510€. That actually looks perfect. Thank you!
  12. Yeah, to be honest I've spent too much of my free time trying to find a solution for the problem and that frustrates me. I shoulda just spend the card back a week ago. Used 1080ti's are affordable but I would prefer to get a new card. I've spent 430€ for the 5700xt and the 2070s cards are around 500€. I don't mind paying 70€ more for a new stable card that will perform well on 1440p / 144 Hz. I'm just not sure how big are the differences between 2070s cards and which ones have a good built quality. I can choose between these cards: https://www.idealo.de/preisvergleich/ProductCategory/16073F1263426.html
  13. Ah thanks. I thought you mentioned one of the ones from my list. I'm a bit confused picking a 2070 super because the prices for aftermarket models go from 480€ to over 600€. I don't mind spending around 500-520€. Unfortunately the card you mentioned is quite expensive. 2070S Armour is not available where I live. This is pretty much what I have at disposal: https://www.idealo.de/preisvergleich/ProductCategory/16073F1263426.html edit: spelling, forgot to answer the question.
  14. I tried everything I could think of. I asked for advice here, on reddit and AMD forums. I tried clean reinstalling my windows two times. I did GPU stress tests, CPU tests, memory tests, spend countless hours analyzing event viewer and nothing worked. I used multiple AMD drivers and I always experience crashes: All of the components in my PC are brand new and the PSU is Corsair RMx 650W. I didn't swap it out to test how the system works with another PSU but it held good during hour long stress tests.
  15. It's not the gaming x trio version. That one costs 50-60€ more than the cards mention. It's the ventus version with twin fans.
  16. I'm actually returning my 5700xt tomorrow. I have nothing against AMD, I've been basically using their CPUs and GPUs since 2013 but ever since I got my 5700xt 2 weeks ago I'm having driver issues. Constant black screens, crashes etc and I'm just can't take it anymore. I heard some people complaining about gigabyte having bad build quality...
  17. I can't seem to find a good overview or a recommendation. I'm looking for a reliable card with decent thermals and noise, basically good build quality. I don't mind dishing out a bit more to get a good card. Where I live the following cards are the cheapest: GigaByte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Windforce MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Ventus Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Twin Fan Inno3D RTX 2070 SUPER twin X2 There are other variants that cost 20-30€ more and I can get one of those if it is worth it (Other cards from Zotac, Palit, Gainward etc) Which one would you recommend?
  18. The card is not overclocked at all and yes I have. I did multiple Furmark stress tests and the temps are fine.
  19. Problem: Random black screen while playing Dota. AMD Drivers crash. My system: (Brand new):Monitor: Acer Nitro XV272UPMotherboard: Asus TUF x570 plus with Wi Fi updated to newest bios 1.2CPU: Ryzen 3700XGPU: Sapphire Pulse 5700 XT (19.9.2 - Recommended version)PSU: Corsair RMx 650 WWindows 10 (up to date) Event Viewer: What can I do to improve my stability? Should I download the nest "non recommended" AMD drivers? Are other people still having problems with 5700 XT?
  20. Ah you're right. I just tested it and the monitor went really completely off. I usually have my monitor set to go to sleep in 10 min and PC in 30 or 1 hour and that's why it didn't work. The only question that remains, why did it work on my last monitor? I could set it to go to sleep without having to put my entire PC to sleep...
  21. I know it's hard to see the glow without seeing it live but does that look acceptable to you? Why does it even glow when it's in sleep mode?
  22. What can I do to set it in sleep mode? I've set the sleep mode for monitor in windows on 1 minute and that's how it looks after 1 minute.
  23. As the title says, is this normal?`The monitor is Acer Nitro XV272UP and is brand new. I didn't change any settings and the monitor is connected to 5700 XT over HDMI.
  24. I don't have it installed. The problem is I'm getting errors with all sorts of stuff and I just installed windows on a brand new PC. I'm getting errors with Asus aura sync (I uninstalled it), with AMD drivers (I got the newest recommended one); with headset (also got the newest), with registry (no idea what to do) etc. It's really frustrating especially when the PC crashes.
