  1. I don't believe my old psu was ever defective. I do think that it was being overdrawn though, just from my limited knowledge and the way it was acting although I had also used a calculator to determine how much my system should draw and also found it to be well under 600w. But anyways the new psu didn't have that issue and I had run if for a while after the swap so I don't know why the issue would occur now. I don't have a mobo speaker or that Rx 580 anymore. But I could drag one of my friends systems here against their will and try to swap some hardware
  2. Just to further clarify a couple things, I built this PC a year ago with a RX 580 8gb then a month ago upgraded to this 5700xt. Everything worked great but my old 600w 80+ evga PSU was shutting off under heavy load(it was obviously the psu because the switch on the back had to be flipped to get power again, like a breaker) so I upgraded to a used Thermaltake tr2 1000w 80+ and that solved my issue. And I had been using my PC on and off for the last week until now.
  3. So today I went to turn on my PC and got no display output so I double checked my HDMI was seated properly. I use a 65 inch element 4k 60htz tv as a monitor... (I know it's gaming sacrilege) and still nothing. I then went to restart my system and all of a sudden it won't restart or shut off no matter what. (Mind you I just turned it on with my power button) so after waiting a moment I grew impatient and thought if I could just restart it it would solve itself. So I flipped the power supply switch and started it again (with the power button) to no avail. I then changed ports on my TV, HDMI cables all together, tried to plug into my mobo HDMI (although I didn't think that would work because I don't have discrete graphics.) I shut it off using the psu switch, then reseated everything except my cpu. My 8 and 6 pin on the graphics card, the card itself, the 24pin power on the Mobo, the 8 pin CPU power cable, ram and still no luck. I cleared my CMOS and tried booting with one ram stick at a time with no luck and the only other things I know to do is one by one put my hardware in someone else's rig to see if I have some bad hardware but Its a bit of a pain to check my motherboard and CPU. I don't see an LED anywhere and haven't heard s single beep this whole time (not even sure if I have a system speaker) so if someone has any advice or any clue what might be going on I would be so grateful.

  4. Manually setting the threads in r20 was the ticket, they must not have been utilized before for some reason. I scored a 3575 on my first test which is way closer to the scores i was looking for. I dont particularly care to have a high r20 or r15 score but i felt like my new build was not as nice as i had anticipated so i wanted to test that theory against what other people were seeing. It must have all been in my head. With all that being said would anybody like to guide me through my first oc? i realize a million people have done vidoes about this and a million people have asked but ive watched quite a few and im still a little lost. im fairly competent but im still a little overwhelmed
  5. I thought leaving it under auto would use all 12 threads. I haven't messed with the thread controller yet. Temps are around 71c the whole time
  6. No problem, I appreciate the help. They are identical. Both are Vengeance 8gb 3600mhz lpx dimms purchased as a kit.
  7. Okay then I guess I am the one who made it confusing because I always had the ram installed in the two grey slots (2nd from the CPU and 4th) but I referred to them by the label that Gigabyte had given them instead. We were on the same page. I have my ram installed in the appropriate slot
  8. Thank you for your help. Bios is up to date, xmp is enabled, windows is up to date, I have the latest chipset drivers installed and I have not seen an option to disable SMT (I looked) so I'm going to assume I didn't mess that up.
  9. Thank you, are you referring to the labeled number associated with the dim slots or their physical location in relation to the cpu? the board labels them from closest to the cpu to farthest respectively ddr4_4 ddr4_2 ddr4_3 ddr4_1
  10. Intuitively I assumed that the #2 slot and the #1 slot (labeled that way) which are 2nd from the cpu and 4th from the cpu would be dual channel because above one is listed under channel a and one is listed channel b am i wrong?
  11. I recently built a new system for myself and am getting really poor results out of it. I'm new to overclocking but would like to overclock at some point. I have ran Cinebench r15 and 20 and received very poor scores on them despite having what I thought was good hardware. My best score on r15 was 1030 and my best score on r20 was 1818. I see a lot of people getting far better scores than that with the same hardware, what am I doing wrong? Mobo: Gigabyte B450m Ds3h Cpu: Ryzen 5 3600 with Wraith Prism cooler and arctic mx4 thermal paste Gpu: Powercolor Rx 580 8gb Ram:2x8gb Corsair Vengeance 3600mhz DDR4 Dual channel also xmp is enabled Psu: Evga 600w 80+ Ssd: 500gb WD Blue 2.5" ssd OS: Latest Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1909 , latest bios (F50), latest chipset drivers Any advice or help would mean the world to me. Right now this isn't performing much better than my old pc and I'm feeling like I wasted time and money.
