  1. It's hitting Canada too, so it seems to be a worldly issue. For the safety of all, we should have patience.
  2. 4k60 is still 4k60. That's the signal. The display size has no affect on how easy or hard that is to process, in fact it should be easier for larger displays, as they have their own processing for the signals to drive whichever technology they use. x86 and ARM can be compared by the results they produce: 4k60. Dedicated hardware to decode is what we are talking about, and that's included in more modern GPU's than the HD 6850, and is also included on the SoC's of smartphones.
  3. Definitely you could improve the scenario by getting a GPU that can decode VP9 natively. RX 400 series or newer (Polaris (GCN 4th gen), not GCN 1/2 gen arch.) NVIDIA 900 series or newer (Maxwell, not Keplar arch.) I include the arch, as some GPU's from those series (particularly low-end) use previous gen architectures, and do not support it.
  4. Youtube does use VP9 when it can, which can be accelerated by supported GPU's. This will offload the CPU workload substantially. This is exactly how cellphones play extremely 4K youtube, while having a much inferior processor than a 2500K.
  5. That depends. What is your current GPU, OS, Browser (version)?
  6. IIRC This platform doesn't allow the iGPU and dGPU to be active at the same time.
  7. You can actually see that G.Skill has QVL'd the memory for the motherboard, if it makes you feel better. https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/166/1536654268/F4-3200C16D-16GTZR-Qvl
  8. Check Windows Event Viewer for WHEL errors. If they are there, then your systems is struggling with stability. I suspect, however, that HWMonitor isn't reading the clocks quite right. Follow @Mateyyy's suggestion:
  9. Have you made sure all USB devices (aside from a wired keyboard) are removed? I've seen them hang systems before. Other than that, it could be a bad drive.
  10. Have you tried running a pure stock configuration? Reset BIOS Set req'd boot options (UEFI, secure boot, etc) Manually set ram to 3200 MT/s non-XMP. Set motherboard based power limitations to default. Make sure Ryzen Master or other clock altering programs do not start with windows. Ensure chipset drivers are up to date and without conflicts. If the system is still unstable in a pure stock configuration, stress the system on an Ubuntu Live USB. If it's stable there, look at re-installing your main OS.
  11. If the system is working normally... why worry about it? My X470 MAX has red LED's over the populated DIMM slots.
  12. LTT Forums has a topic dedicated for this very question:
  13. Delete both partitions, and install to the "free space". This will let Windows format it as it sees fit. Alternatively, make sure to boot using CSM if you really want that MBR.
