  1. ah that's true I'm planinng to use a RTX 3070 on 3440x1440 100hz display so probably it wouldn't matter
  2. Hi all, i'm about to snag a 5600x and was wondering if the ~5-10% performance increase is worth adding the extra ram? 1 set of 2x8gb 3600mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX will run me about $129SGD which is ~$97USD
  3. I've encountered compatibility issues if the motherboard bios is too old before (this was with a i7 860 and a GTX 1060), updating the motherboard bios made it work so you'd probably want to do that first
  4. Display: Main Display: 3440 x 1440 Side display: 1080 x 1920 Use case: - Computer science student - Barely plays games (I'm talking ~4-6 hours weekly), when I do it's usually: - indie titles - BF4 - BF1 - FF14 - Tabletop simulator Spends ~14-16hours a day on my computer writing programs / reading off PDF files In my country a 5600x + RTX 3080 is about the same price as 5900x + RTX 3070 with the above use case which combination makes more sense? TLDR: 5600x + RTX 3080 or 590
  5. Ah i get wym. Should i just cover it up with the included cover R5 provides? What about the exhaust from GPU? would having the fan as exhaust help?
  6. Hi guys, My question is actually whether having the top front 140mm fan as intake or exhaust matter as much? Currently its installed as an intake fan (filtered) for positive air pressure and in my mind im thinking it feeds fresh air directly into my Hyper 212X cooler Or should i put it as an exhaust since heat rises due to convection?
  7. Hi all, So i found out that out of 3 fans, left (flushed to rear) is not working (i tried moving it with my hands it wasn't stuck or anything, just not moving) center was working as per normal right (flushed to front) was stupidly stuck cos my pci-e cable was jamming it, now it's working WITH CENTER & RIGHT FAN Idle = 60c Load = 81c is there a way to diagnose and fix the only fan that is not moving?
  8. Oh my god i did this and saw only 1 of 3 fans r spinning guess that solves it! rip 7 year old card
  9. Hi guys, currently this is my setup as shown in the screenshot. WHAT'S THE ISSUE 60c idle, 94c under load Too toasty under load -> thermal throttling WHAT I'VE DONE 1) Replaced r9 290x (Tri-X) thermal paste with MX-4 2) undervolted by -31mV in MSI AB 3) max fan speed at 55% (it sounds like a jet engine if its any higher) 4) core clocks and memory clocks are at stock (1040/1300) Do you guys have any idea what may be the issue? And another thing is should the top-front 140mm fan be an exhaust instead of an intake?
  10. Hi guys im contemplating for a gpu upgrade. Currently im running a 290x and a i7 4770 with 20gb ram. im going to wait for rtx 3000 series card but let's say the most intensive game i'm playing on this res is BF1 what RTX 2000 series GPU would you guys recommend me to pair with my i7 4770? Just want a rough gauge on which GPU to get when 3k hits. (and i'm going on team green side because of tensor cores since im partially doing AI)
  11. OH!!! i tthink i managed to resolve the issue. What i did was separated all the ethernet cables going into the router (i had them all cable tied previously together) and scheduled a daily reboot @ 4am and that seem to fix the issue
  12. just for a gauge when i play / host with ~10ish people on my system (i7 4770 + 20gb ram) my cpu usage hits ~90% so keep that in mind. Ram wise it's hovering around 4gb usage
  13. The purpose of the trunk is for wife approval. I can't exactly have 20 meters of ethernet cable running through the house in a straight line It's currently in router mode!! As for the AI protection I'll give it a shot... The thing is only my wired connection is affected. The WiFi side of things are perfectly fine when my ethernet is hit
  14. The ax58u is connected via WAN port to my ISP's Huawei Echolife HG8240h modem and it's fibre (500mbps up down) Then it's connected to my computer's ethernet port(the onboard motherboard's killer gigabit and pcie ethernet card have the same issues so I doubt it's the port on my mobo) 1) the trunk is just some plastic trunk I got from a hardware store 2) cat 7 flat cable 3) precrimped 20m cable 4) nope All the lights in my place are LED T.T I may just replace the cable if it comes down to it but its a pain
