  1. Depends on the game and the resolution/settings used. In some games it definitley will be a bottleneck though. Ryzen 5 1600 performes very poorly in the Far Cry games, AC Odyssey, CS:GO and a couple more which aren't optimized
  2. Nah. That chip is locked to this setting for a reason. Either cooling or power delivery. In most laptops and oem systems power delivery (vrm) is mostly just borderline enough to fullfill the required specs. I would not try my luck with that. Also cooling often is an issue, because its obviously a big difference if your cpu will only run two cores at max boost frequency or all of them. From my experience (several Aspire laptops) Acer tends to underspec the cooling solution. God no. Just peak power. Usually these laptops just run the absolute bare minimum of vrm specs.
  3. Ryzen performs really bad in all Source engine games, since its not optimized. But it should not be this bad, maybe you need a BIOS or driver update. For comparison: Ive got a i7 4770k @ 4.5 Ghz and a GTX 1070. My friend also has a GTX 1070 but paired to a Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz and he usually only gets about 50-60% of the framerate I get in CS:GO, despite having the same gpu and running the same settings. Its not this bad in other games though.
  4. Yeah unfortunately you can't. Acer sucks in that regard. I've got a Aspire V Nitro myself with a i5 4210U which is a severe bottleneck because its locked to its lowest TDP config. Without major BIOS mods you can't do anything about it. Thats why I also built a desktop to play games.
  5. Depends on the actual model you bought, not all powersupplies are equal. But if its from a reputable brand then most likely yes, it might be overkill
  6. These standards are backwards compatible, so the use of a 5e cable should definitley not be an issue. The packet loss is more of a hardware thing and probably caused by your router, switch or network adapter, if its on your end anyways. Could also be a server-sided or infrastructure problem with interferences causing packet loss.
  7. Why not? The symptoms you describe (random crashes, artifacting, etc) are a textbook example for what I would say is either an unstable oc or more likely your card just on its way out.
  8. Just buy that one. Its absolutely amazing, transformed my 1070 FE. Dropped temps by about 20 degrees and the card now holds a 1950+ MHz oc without getting loud.
  9. Can confirm. My friend always wanted a multi-gpu rig too, so he purchased a second RX 580 Nitro+ but when we tested it with both cards installed, the results were extremely disappointing. Literally no scaling at all in AC Odyssey and BF V... CPU wasn't an issue here since he's got an oc'd Ryzen 7 2700X. He ended up sending the card back after the AMD customer support told him that it was pretty much the game developers fault and that the problem wasn't with his pc.
  10. Yes, BF V is utilizes your cpu very, very heavily, but even with the stock cooler your 2600 should not be anywhere near 80 or even 90 degrees. Please make absolutely 100% sure your cpu isn't overclocked in any way, especially not by any dubious "performance enhancement" option or software that might be included in your mainboards BIOS. These are inherently unsafe since they don't really validate their automatic oc settings and can result in your pc running really hot or unstable. Also maybe measure and report back with the voltage your cpu is running under load. AIDA64 would for example be a relatively good way to test general system stability and get a read out of all the parameters.
  11. I'd start with the gpu and oc the hell out of the cpu. But a higher-tier gpu really demands a cpu with more threads to be perfectly honest. 4c/4t really isn't enough anymore these days for most AAA-games.
  12. Once overclocked thats a pretty power hungry system. Is your psu up to the task? I dont know about oc'ing the 9th generation parts, but 1.28v seems like not much for a 5.1 GHz overclock. Is that definitley enough? Why only 4.6 GHz on the cache though? Roman (der8auer) says a general good rule of thumb is +/-300 MHz from your core frequency, no less.
  13. Good config. If you don't want to go with a higher tier gpu in the future the R5 2600 will be a good choice
  14. No, most likely not. Shadowbans are relatively permanent and only can be lifted after a comprehensive content review by a YouTube rep and that will only happen if your channel gets enough clicks overall. You will not automatically get unbanned after a certain amount of time, thats not how it works. Not even if you delete all the previously flagged content.
  15. How's that bad boy holding up? Nearly bought one back in the day but then decided that it wasn't worth it after realizing that I also would have needed to up my psu and change to a bigger case. Kept my 680 instead. But if I get that correctly the actual driver is getting installed? Is your gpu properly detected by the os? Maybe try a different, older version of the driver package for a start. If that doesnt work you could still try safe mode and so on
