  1. I had a closer look and it seems like the noise is happening as the fans on the GPU keep turning on and off (think they only turn on when under a certain load). So if I'm doing something that fluctuates back and forth over the threshold load level, the fans turn off and on every 30 secs - 1 minute. However, is it normal for them to be making that noise when stopping or revving back up? I also noticed one of the two fans took a bit longer to stop all the way than the other, but not sure if that's a problem. Thanks
  2. Hi all, I built my first PC about 1 and a half months ago, and I had to move it to a different house a couple weeks ago. Ever since then, I've noticed a really loud grinding noise coming from the pc. It's not continuous, it only happens under load, and even then it goes away after 10-20 seconds. I'm not too worried since I haven't noticed any problems yet, but the noise can rev up quite loud, so I want to find out what it is asap. I'm not too sure where it's coming from. I'm pretty sure it's not the case fans since they're on a set speed (low). I though it was a loose CPU fan vibrating when it speeds up, but its been tightened and the noise is still there. So, at this point I'm suspecting the GPU (Gigabyte 1660 Super). No cables are interrupting fans from what I can see. Does anyone know what this noise could be, how to fix it, or what I should do next to stop the problem asap? Any help appreciated, thanks Here's an audio recording. The noise comes in around halfway through. Ignore the controller noises lol Noise from PC.m4a

  4. Thanks mate, that's good to hear. Just wasn't sure if it was normal, and wanted to make sure since this was my first build.
  5. Hi everyone, finished my first ever PC build relatively recently but am noticing my CPU cooler seems to be making a noticeable buzzing noise. My GPU fans only turn on at a certain usage, and my case fans are pretty much silent, so the cpu fan is all I can hear. CPU Fan.mp3 This is the noise as I held the mic up to the front of the PC ( ignore background noise, focus on the buzzing sound). Is this sound normal to come from the CPU fan? My temps seem to be fine, considering it is the stock cooler for the R5 3600 I'm not worrying too much since the PC seems to be running fine, in gaming as well, but if it is an issue I would prefer to deal with it ASAP. I am pretty sure that it is screwed in properly as well since I remember I spent a lot of time installing the cooler because it was giving me problems lol I'm happy to answer any more questions and any help is appreciated.
  6. Hi everyone, recently finished my first PC build. Was playing some GTA today, turned VSync off to check what FPS I was getting and after a few seconds, my VRAM clock droppped from 7000 MHz to either 100 or 400 MHz (I didn't get a good look at it), causing my FPS to drop to sub 10 (from about 100) for about 10 seconds. The 7001 MHz dropped, and one of the GPU usage figures shows 0%: This is what shows in MSI Afterburner if it helps (I have not overclocked anything): Specs: R5 3600 GTX 1660 Super 16GB 3200MHz RAM I have been running with VSync on and it has been perfectly smooth. Any idea what that 0% usage figure represents? Is this normal or something I should worry about? Any help appreciated!
  7. Thanks mate. Not experiencing any obvious problems. I get some FPS drops from 60 to 30 in Sea of Thieves, but I guess this is normal during intense scenes. Nothing in Control Panel. Do you recommend doing the DDU rn or should I be fine? Thanks for the help!
  8. Hi, I recently finished my first PC build and was installing the latest drivers. Ryzen 5 3600 GTX 1660 Super 16GB 3200 MHz RAM When I got to the Chipset driver, the mobo company had it incorrectly linked so instead of installing the chipset drivers I was installing Radeon GPU drivers. It didn't click with me at the time that these were the GPU drivers and not the chipset ones, since the mobo company themselves had linked it. Obviously, since I'm running an nvidia GPU, the installation kept failing and I kept trying. It constantly said it had partially installed the Radeon software everytime it tried, always running into an error (obviously it would). After I finally realised what I had been doing, I uninstalled the Radeon software (I think): And then I installed the correct chipset driver from the AMD website. What I want to know is could this have done any harm to my PC, even though I'm running nvidia GPU drivers. Sorry if I seem paranoid but I would rather solve the problem now than later. Any help appreciated!
  9. Great, thanks. Had a look with HWMonitor, 1 thread is maxed out rather than 1 core. Is it normal for this thread to change though? As you can see the max load has been on 4 of the threads and keeps switching.
  10. CPU is at 10%, is this because the load is only on one core?
  11. Hi, recently finished my first PC build Ryzen 5 3600 GTX 1660 Super 16 GB 3200Mhz RAM I'm running Minecraft with VSync Off and no FPS cap, and am running between 300-400 FPS, but my GPU is not at 100% utilisation. I have checked using MSI Afterburner and Task Manager. Can anyone help as to why this isn't running at 100%, as it shouldn't be a CPU bottleneck?
  12. I have a 3600 with the standard Wraith Cooler. I constantly hear its buzzing noise, but I'm not sure if that means something is wrong or its just because the rest of my system is pretty much silent. Is this type of buzzing ambient noise normal? Would a recording of the sound help?
  13. So, I have got back to my PC and my FPS now seems very similar to YT videos so I am a lot less worried now, even though I have only tested in Dauntless. However, I am convinced something is wrong with my MSI / Riva. Setting the toggle in MSI Afterburner just doesn't work in game (I set it to ALT + \). However, the overlay shows up automatically in game anyway, but it only displays some elements: GPU Temp / Usage CPU Temp / Usage Current FPS Even though I have also selected Average FPS, Min FPS, etc... they do not show up I guess it doesn't really matter as I can just look at the FPS in real time.
  14. I wont get back to my PC until the end of the week. Will update here.
  15. Don't worry about it. Honestly, I can't remember if I used your link or not, but I have a feeling I didn't. Just in case though, is there any way for me to check if I have the mobile drivers installed?
  16. Wow thanks for the help! Will set this when I get back to my PC and will update!
  17. No, but the overlay still appears, just not all of the info ive checked
  18. Thats the thing... I have checked loads of assets e.g. min fps, avg fps and ticked the 'Show in OSD' box and it shows up as 'in OSD' but they don't appear. May try reinstalling
  19. Under load At idle CPU is 40-45C. Never really checked GPU at idle Yes definitely inserted in A2 and B2 slots. Will check CPU-Z when I get pack to the PC.
  20. Ok I will try that when I get back to my PC. Thanks for the help. Also, as per the OP could it be a problem with my Riva overlay, since it doesnt seem to be responding correctly e.g. I have checked in game overlay for min fps, avg fps etc and yet it doesnt seem to show up in game?
  21. Video and chipset drivers up to date. Not sure about BIOS. Thermals seem ok: about 70C on CPU and max 76C on GPU, which I've read is ok. DOCP profile is enabled
  22. I understand but my resolution is set to 1080p. Also, I know fps over 60 doesnt show on 60Hz but I need to know if my system isnt performing correctly because it could be a problem when I play more demanding games which are supposed to run at e.g. 80+fps, but instead run at 40 fps on my system
  23. Right, thats good information to have, thanks. But if im not mistaken the 3600 should not even be close to bottlenecking the 1660 Super?
  24. Specs added... shouldnt be a CPU bottleneck
