  1. Sorry to hear that - yeah, not entirely sure what else it could be.
  2. What version of the BIOS are you running? Have you experienced any system instability prior to this during gaming or when you are drawing a lot of power from the PSU?
  3. OK - without getting into a wholesale fresh install of Windows have you tried clearing your CMOS and setting your BIOS to default? What are you system / software specs - I happened to be at Canada Computers the other day doing an RMA and one of the guys was telling me about some driver issues and a particular version of Windows 10. Now for the life of me I can't remember the version but it was the 19xx vs 20xx - specifically for AMD cards.
  4. Weird bug. Are you uninstalling with DDU or using the factory erase mode with the Radeon drivers? I know there is a BIOS update for some of the XT's (I just updated my ROG 5700xt) - might be worth looking into.
  5. That Optimum Tech video is great - my opinion on it is "what is the best you can afford?" As it's been mentioned by others in the thread the Ryzen 3 is a great value buy, it performs well when paired with a decent video card. Moving into AAA titles the Ryzen 5 has an edge and will pull away with new gen games. I know availability of the Ryzen 3 has been a bit challenged lately, but if you use the 3 as a step up and put the money you save into a better video card I could see why it's an attractive buy.
  6. Yeah so there are a few things at play here: For your budget the Ryzen 5 3600 is still out of reach, waiting until Zen3 will push the prices down. But since you'd need to swap your motherboard to move to AMD it's going to be worth it to save a bit more to put a larger budget behind it. I wouldn't expect Zen3 cpu's/motherboards to be cheap - but there will be good value for x570 + a 3600 either brand new or used If you could also consider a newer GPU that would go a long way
  7. You can make a significantly better decision if you can weight out the OPs needs rather than just suggesting that OP waits. Should OP wait for Zen3 and upgrade to the 4000 series or should OP wait and buy a Zen2 that comes down significantly in price? I've got no idea if OP is planning on just buying a CPU and motherboard or if they will need/want a new GPU, PSU, RAM, etc...maybe OP will still be on a budget and pairing a higher end Zen2 + a x570 will be better value for them... So yeah, it kind of matters depending on what OP wants to do with their current setup.
  8. I think this depends - what is your current build, what do you currently run, and what kind of budget are you working with.
  9. As a 5700XT owner I can confirm that the biggest draw back for me thus far has been stability not performance. I often lock my FPS anyways since I'm on a 60hz screen.
  10. So, I've got the ROG 5700XT Strix, and one of the steps I took to tackle the black screen of death issue (which I assumed was made worse by high heat) was to: Adjust the fan curve, it still isn't very loud but now I am keeping the fan running at all times. Temps usually between 60 - 70 stable with 100fps running Warzone at 1080p max settings I moved my CPU cooler to the top of my case and placed two 140mm fans to draw cooler air in - these fans push cool air above and below the card. My assumption is that the heat sync on the back of the card is slightly more effective, but now the triple fans have cool air to pass onto the heat sync. The issue is significantly less annoying since it pops up way less, but my temps are way lower. ex: Right now it's running 37 Celsius on both the GPU & Junction - and underload it will get up to 70 (which is totally fine) My CPU is also running with a slight OC so the air coming off the rad might be slighly higher filling the case (3.894ghz vs stock for the 1800x).
  11. Respectfully, I disagree. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-binning-turing-die-geforce-rtx-2080-rtx-2070,39250.html This seems like a topic that has been covered a lot by a bunch of different folks: Benchmarks in this video showing the 2080 TI FE also out performing the EVGA 2080 Super FTW3...
  12. Right, which according to the support site says supports the 3600. https://www.gigabyte.com/ca/Motherboard/B450-I-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10/support#support-cpu There could be a stability issue or issue with the F51e BIOS.
  13. Yeah but can we all agree it's a beautiful card? I feel like I saw on YouTube someone talked about Nvidia keeping the best dies for their founders editions, so from a performance perspective you might not get what you're looking for in a 3rd party card. However, I feel like those issues have been resolved since launch - Google search results for recent issues doesn't lead me to believe it will be a factor.
  14. OK - my recommendation is to flash back to F40 - it's the first version of the BIOS that supports your chip. Now forget the overclock - set everything to stock and see if that works.
  15. yeah....anyways looking into the board Questions, which BIOS are you running F40 or F51?
