  1. The transfer has been failing for a couple of hours now. But I will give it some more time
  2. Seeing an issue sending a completed work unit. 00:54:55:WU01:FS00:Sending unit results: id:01 state:SEND error:NO_ERROR project:14369 run:838 clone:4 gen:1 core:0xa7 unit:0x000000019bf7a4d55e84b01ae6536324 00:54:55:WU01:FS00:Uploading 8.24MiB to 00:54:55:WU01:FS00:Connecting to 00:57:07:WU01:FS00:Upload 1.52% 00:57:07:WARNING:WU01:FS00:Exception: Failed to send results to work server: Transfer failed 00:57:07:WU01:FS00:Trying to send results to collection server 00:57:07:WU01:FS00:Uploading 8.24MiB to 00:57:07:WU01:FS00:Connecting to 00:58:21:WU01:FS00:Upload 1.52% 00:58:21:ERROR:WU01:FS00:Exception: Transfer failed 01:12:52:WU01:FS00:Sending unit results: id:01 state:SEND error:NO_ERROR project:14369 run:838 clone:4 gen:1 core:0xa7 unit:0x000000019bf7a4d55e84b01ae6536324 01:12:52:WU01:FS00:Uploading 8.24MiB to 01:12:52:WU01:FS00:Connecting to 01:14:22:WU01:FS00:Upload 1.52% 01:14:22:WARNING:WU01:FS00:Exception: Failed to send results to work server: Transfer failed 01:14:22:WU01:FS00:Trying to send results to collection server 01:14:22:WU01:FS00:Uploading 8.24MiB to 01:14:22:WU01:FS00:Connecting to 01:14:42:WU01:FS00:Upload 1.52% 01:16:25:WU01:FS00:Upload 2.27% 01:16:26:ERROR:WU01:FS00:Exception: Transfer failed Seems to just keep looping like that. Anything I can do locally or just wait for the server to accept my work.
  3. You can check if it is the issue by running a game and then opening task manager in advanced view. Sort the processes by cpu usage and if aura sync is causing the issue you should see something called lighting service (i think) taking up lots of cpu resources. To tweak it at a basic level I use Asus armoury crate, also provides updates for motherboard drivers and what not. But there is a section for aura sync in there which you can change to static.
  4. Like it if the option is there but like others I wouldn’t go out of my way for it
  5. While games will read and write things to your documents or app data folders, which would be on the sata ssd, it should handle them fast enough. I don't think you would see any appreciable difference in games
  6. The pci-e riser you have pictured is a x1 slot to a x16 slot which means your GPU would be limited to x1 speeds. This would likely be quite noticeable and is definitely not recommended. I have one of those for my F@H rig and even there I see a drop in performance. Those risers are made for mining rigs that do not need to transfer much data between the gpu and the system. Edit: I would recommend if you are on a tight budget put it all into the GPU and just run it non-vertically for now. Upgrade with a vertical kit and a riser once you have a little extra money down the line.
  7. No worries, good luck with your build
  8. The boards that Slottr mentioned are all good and the first two have the advantage of being able to flash the bios without a cpu incase you get some old stock that is not yet Ryzen 3000 compatible without update. most modern motherboards however have relatively similar features so unless you are going for high over clocks just find one that doesn’t break the bank: this tier list might help: Also as a quick side note I noticed your m.2 ssd is only a SATA ssd which while you may not notice it depending on your tasks means you are limited to SATA 6gb per second. You could try looking for one that is NVMe such as the 970 evo plus (others may be able suggest better options that is just the one I have)
  9. I have had the same problems before when picking a motherboard and ram combo. in my experience they almost always work even with extra letters and whatnot. My understanding of these lists is they just contain ram they have checked and verified as working on the board. There are so many slightly different models of ram from the same company that they can’t check them all though. The R in this case probably means RGB. TL:DR it should work totally fine they just haven’t explicitly checked that exact model of ram
  10. The pricing might differ in your region compared to me but I would agree looking at the chips here. The 3600 seems to be the best bang for your buck, from what i have read if you can get the 3600x for not much more it is a small step up. But only really worth it if the price difference is small. While older B450 motherboards that have been sitting around since before zen 2 released will require a bios update if it is new stock at which ever supplier you choose it will work out of the box. There will be a sticker on the box if it is verified to work with ryzen 3000 series. Also bonus is that motherboard has the ability to flash the bios without a CPU installed, instructions should be on their site. So even if it is an older one you should be able to do the bios update no problem. Have not used one myself but from what I have read the NH-D15 is one of the best air coolers out there so it should be plenty for you. Also according to their site the chromax black comes with an AM4 bracket. https://noctua.at/en/nh-d15-chromax-black/specification That Ram and storage should be plenty fast enough. I have a lower capacity 970 evo plus myself and it works great. Unless you are stressing it by doing some serious overclocking or something any 80+ gold psu should be totally fine. So this should be good for you. As far as I know anyway As far as case fans go that should be plenty of air flow as long as there is nothing massive in your case obstructing the path.
  11. While it is possible to clone your os onto the m.2 drive with some software I would say the easiest option, especially considering you just installed so it will be mostly clean anyway, is to reinstall windows to the m.2 drive. I recently installed windows 10 on an nvme ssd in an Asus motherboard aswell. It was quite a process but from what I recall here are somethings to note: 1. Update the motherboard bios. I have noticed Asus has a habit of shipping boards with very out of date bioses on them and in my case this actually fixed the issue. When i attempted to boot windows of a usb it got stuck in a loop or froze entirely. 2. Make sure the m.2 drive is the only drive in your system when you attempt to install, totally disconnect all sata connections. Also give it some time as it can take a while for windows to boot into the installer as it is installing drivers for the m.2 drive. At this point you can give it a go with the default CSM and secure boot settings which worked for me. Alternatively I have seen a lot of other people have luck following a process which pedro_2020 sugests on the microsoft forum (not the stared answer): https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/windows-refuses-to-install-on-nvme-ssd-samsung-960/472ff39f-b7e9-40db-95cf-9063115e1d07
  12. If you are planning on buying instore you can check the box for a badge that says "AMD Ryzen Desktop 3000 Ready" which means it will work out of the box with 3rd gen ryzen without needing to update.
  13. One thing to note is that you can also get m.2 drives that run at SATA speed for around the same price if not better, that will save you some hassle in cable management.
  14. I noticed you are using an Asus motherboard which means you might have aura sync enabled rgb running. If this is the case try turning all the rgb off or to a static colour as I have noticed similar issues in games while aura sync is running
  15. Is your motherboard running the most recent bios? I have seen weird instability issues like this especially on Asus boards as in my experience they tend to ship with very old bioses.
