    Samfisher got a reaction from CatAssTrophic in Need experienced suggestion for a new PSU   
    The RM750 is definitely the best of the bunch, if you can wait, and if it's within budget.

    As long as your FPS is within the VRR range you won't get tearing.  Set your frame limit to 140 and that's it.

    Samfisher got a reaction from Fasauceome in How do i do a bios update   
    Is it the MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk?  If it is then it has a Flash BIOS button near where all the USB ports are, at the top.
     
    From the MSI manual (a side note, format your USB drive to FAT32, and use a 8GB or smaller drive, sometimes there's compatibility issues with bigger drives):

    That has a Q-Flash button right on the mobo so you'll be fine.  Download the latest BIOS for the board, extract ONLY the BIOS file into a FAT32 formatted USB drive.  Connect the board to a PSU for power, insert the USB drive into the specific Q-Flash USB port on the mobo, then press the Q-Flash button and it will start updating the board.  Be patient, it can take some time.
     
    Button is highlighted in red from this image I took from the board manual.  The USB port you should be using for this is clearly listed as BIOS.  It's the one with the white insert.  I attached an image of that as well below.

    If it doesn't work, you'll definitely know hahaha.  It won't destroy anything so no real worries there.

    You won' fry anything.  Worst that will happen is it trips the PSU and the PC shuts down.  Either way, separate PCIE cables are always the preferred way Enjoy your stay on the forum!

    You'll be fine.  I'm running a 3080 and a 3700x with the CoolerMaster V650w PSU.  The RM650x is a very good unit.

    By absolute volume TN panels will always have the most models.  Let OP decide his budget cos none was mentioned.

    Samfisher got a reaction from Shabba in GTX 1070 vs 1660 Super in 2020?   
    Recording gameplay uses NVENC as well, so even though he won't be streaming, the better NVENC encoder on it can make a small difference.
     
    That being said, the NVENC on the 1070 is not terrible, it's only a little bit worse than the one in Turing GPUs (specifically the 1650 Super and up).  The 1070 will outperform the 1660s, and have more VRAM.
     
    Here's a random youtube video I uploaded with Shadowplay recording on my 1070 (Shadowplay uses the NVENC encoder).  Almost everything on my channel was recorded with the 1070, but I recently upgraded to a 3080 and have not uploaded anything with it yet.
     
    If you're happy with the quality then go for the 1070, if not then the 1660s.  Do note Youtube also further compresses the video, but that will also be true no matter what.

    1440p/144hz definitely.  The bump in resolution is pretty nice if it's a 27" display.

    More submissions but inconsistent application of submissions are kinda pointless.  Plus there are tons of properly done reviews out there, so no you're not limited to only 1 card and 1 review...

    No it's not...userbenchmark is the worst place to compare anything.  If you want to compare across generations, use this performance gradient to compare relative performance

    Because they went through the trouble of making a list.  But it's clever marketing.

    Samfisher reacted to krkeshav123 in High temperatures due to Intel Turbo Boost   
    Hello!
    I have an Ideapad 530s with i5-8250U and MX150 GPU 2GB. By default Turbo boost is always on. But when I start gaming, every game stutters. I checked the temperatures while gaming. The GPU temp was average 65 degrees(C) while the CPU temperatures where between 75(C) to 82(C) most of the with peak temp as 92(only saw that for a sec). When I disabled the Turbo boost by setting maximum processor state to 99% then all the stutters in the games stopped and the temperature was now 66 degrees average. So, any idea how can I fix this issue and also does disabling Turbo boost affect performance of games?
     
    EDIT: The system is working fine now. I just had to change my BIOS settings to performance mode to do that. I think Lenovo sneaked this option after BIOS update. Well, I am getting stable FPS, but still after like 1 minute of gameplay the Turbo Boost is turned off automatically and maximum GPU temp is now 67 C instead of 64 C. Can't ask for more now. Thanks to @Samfisher and special thanks @unclewebb.

    Given the V2.52 version number, I would assume these are updated to meet ATX 2.52 demands, similar to RM 2019 vs. RMx.
