  1. Purchased a RX 5700 XT last week, and a new 27' 1440p 144Hz display. Was running dual displays with my old 24' 1080p 60Hz display and it was working fine. After updating my AMD drivers though, suddenly my main display went black, and only my second display was recognized (and listed as Display 1). Tried swapping cables, updating display drivers (were both already updated) and nothing seems to work. As soon as I unplug my secondary display, and turn my main display off and on again, it comes back on and is recognized as Display 1. Plugging in the second display resets the whole process, and the main display turns black again with the message "Display Port :NO SIGNAL" Any suggestions for what I can do?
  2. It seems alright, although I'm wondering why you got 32GB of RAM, seeing as you opted for both a cheap CPU and Motherboard? It would be better to opt for something like a Ryzen 7 3700 and an X570 motherboard. Just get one set of 16GB of RAM and put the extra £125 towards a Ryzen 7 CPU (and possibly a 'better' motherboard if you still have some remaining money). EDIT: Never mind what I said about the MOBO, saw that you are using a MicroATX case. But I think your money is still better spent on a 3700X and 16GB rather than 3600X and 32GB
  3. CPU temps do seem higher, but like I said the usage during idle is 80%, unless you're suggesting the usage is going up because of a temp increase? Check the cooler and everything seemed to be in place. Will reset BIOS UEFI shortly and see if that helps, thanks.
  4. Do you want me to send a clip of it happening? Its definitely going via the GPU, because in TimeSpy I saw a 50% increase in GPU performance after installing the new GPU. I'm getting the FPS I should in non-CPU intensive games, but in games like HOI4 which are CPU heavy, I've seen a almost 50% decrease in FPS.
  5. It is a $100 1080p 60Hz display that I bought 4 or 5 years ago. I'm pretty sure it's not G-sync compatible. In any case I'm not using a Nvidia GPU. @flashiling
  6. My i7-6700K (Overclocked to 4.4GHz with an AIO) has been consistantly slower, and at times reaches 50-60% load during idle. This was fine up until yesterday when I installed a new GPU (1070 --> 5700XT). Even tried a FULL RESET of windows, and still have the issue. Certain games won't load period, and others are stuck at their loading screens. Benchmarks are also worse. Tried running Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and Intel Driver and Support Assistant, and no issues were found, and drivers were up to date. EDIT: Just had a spike in AIO fan RPM, and checking MSI afterburner I saw that it reached 82% usage with only my browser running
  7. Happens everywhere, from games, to youtube videos to netflix (but ONLY when in fullscreen) Updated display drivers and GPU drivers (RX 5700XT which was installed yesterday) and still no fix. Found an old thread that suggested changing to 59Hz, and another suggesting changing to 59Hz and then back to 60Hz, that didn't work either. Suggestions?
  8. Also ran Geekbench 5 and got: Single-core: 1154 Multi-core: 4487 (Prior benchmarks before GPU upgrade): Single-core: 1194 Multi-core: 4621
  9. Ran DDU twice (once to uninstall Nvidia drivers, and once again to uninstall the new AMD drivers). Reinstalled the AMD drivers and restarted. Still the same issue. 4871 in TimeSpy CPU score
  10. Is there any way to fix this, or have I caused a permanent problem?
  11. I ran DDU, but not in safe mode. Could that have been the issue?
  12. Upgraded from a 1070 to a 5700XT. CPU is a i7-6700K with a NZXT x52 AIO and OC'd to 4.4GHz Prior to the upgrade --> Timespy CPU score of 5117 After upgrade --> Timespy CPU score of 4870 Fans on the AIO also seem to be running at a higher RPM than usual. Have not touched any CPU settings, so not sure as to why this is happening. Anyone want to weigh in here?
  13. I purchased this monitor just today, but it has yet to arrive so I can't say anything about its quality: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/YygQzy/asus-tuf-gaming-vg27bq-270-2560x1440-165-hz-monitor-vg27bq When it comes to 1440p, generally you should look for 27' displays, and if possible, try to avoid a TN panel in favour of VA (And possibly IPS if you find one in your price range). Response times will be relatively "low" for modern monitors, but this depends on the panel. TN will generally have the lowest, and IPS the highest, but they monitors will be at most 4ms, and the lowest 0.4ms which will only matter if you're highly competitive.
