  1. I have two monitors. Monitor 1 is hooked up via HDMI and Monitor 2 is hooked up via a VGA cable and an active DVI/CGA adapter. A few days ago I turned on my PC and my second monitor displayed the normal ViewSonic logo, then just static. I figured it could just be a flaky cable and/or adapter. I unplugged it and plugged it back in which seemed to fix it. It did this a few times in the last few days, but hasn't been a huge problem as I only use that monitor for discord and Spotify Now today, it inexplicably stopped happening to my second monitor, and has exclusively been happening to my main monitor. Now, instead of just being solid static and having to re-seat the plug, it just happens in little bursts; it will go static for a few seconds, then flash between static and no image at all a bunch and then go back to normal. It's also started to go static in only portions of the screen for less then a second and then go back to normal. As I am typing this the whole screen flashes static sometimes, for just a brief moment; sometimes just the top or bottom half. Now I suppose it could be possible that both my cables are flaky but I find that unlikely. So my next guess was my GPU, but it seems odd that it only happens to one monitor at a time and it doesn't go back and forth between them either. Tonight it has only happened to Monitor 1, the last few days it was only happening to Monitor 2. Any suggestions would be helpful, I have an XFX RX580 (temps are good)
  2. I've never tried running it without the side panel because my cats would probably crawl in there and break something, but I will say the side panel is usually warm to the touch and even more so when I'm playing MW and Overwatch.
  3. I just got Modern Warfare and it runs great, but my gpu is getting very hot; at one point even reaching high 80s Celsius (I closed the game to let it cool off as I didn't know if that may damage it). The rest of my system has good temps and I have pretty good airflow in my room with the window cracked open most of the time and a box fan. The game automatically set most of the video settings to max and the game ran almost perfect with v-sync enabled, after I noticed the high gpu temps I lowered some settings just to see if it would help and it didn't do much. At this point I'm considering a custom water-cooling solution or a software solution if possible (possibly a different fan curve), but I would really appreciate any ideas on what I can do to lower the temps.The gpu idles in the high 50s but the moment I'm in a game it jumps to the high 70s and low 80s, most games don't push it past those temps though. Build: Ryzen 5 1600, 16gb ram, rx 580 (if that helps at all) I attached a couple screenshots, one at idle and one while playing one game of MW 6v6.
