  1. I haven't paid attention to what's going on in the PC space for about 1 - 1.5 years & I was taking a look at GPUs recently since CyberPunk 2077 is releasing soon. I immediately noticed how awful (at least for me the prices looked awful, worse than I remember them) the prices were, nothing seem remotely as decent compared to when I bought a used 1080 in the spring of 2019. What happened? My first guess would be Corona but that seems too easy.
  2. Recently I bought a PCIe wifi card for my pc since I'm moving into an apartment soon. I am happy with the card, but there's one thing I can't find referenced in any of the manuals; on the back of the card there's an LED. For me it just stays a solid blue color. When I'm clearly sending and receiving info from the router it stays solid blue. I assume it just means there's a connection with no issues? It only bothers me cause I can't find any explanation of it on Asus's documentation.
  3. My current BIOS version is 5007, which was from late june https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-X470-F-GAMING/HelpDesk_BIOS/
  4. I was wondering, will updating my X470 chipset drivers provide improvements as tangible as updating my video drivers do? Obviously I would update them if there was some security flaw being addressed, but I haven't heard of any. Also at least on AMD's official download page there are no patch notes. The only reason I'd fear updating my drivers is having a repeat of what happened when I first built my Ryzen system(I spent the better part of two months troubleshooting my pc, ironically giving up solved my problem as my issues subsided over the course of 3 months). I have no complaints regarding
  5. I'm not attributing the heat to any drive's usage; the C drive (the nvme ssd) would've been literally the only drive getting used at that moment. The SSD that was significantly hotter is empty with no files on it whatsoever. I was just saying the heat sink might shield it from the heat being outputted by the CPU and GPU.
  6. Funny thing I noticed; while playing games where the CPU and GPU radiate a ton of heat, according to crystaldisk info the NVMe ssd is the coolest of all of my drives (the rest are SATA), about 5-6 c cooler than the rest. Either the SSD cooler is a pretty decent heat dissipater, or a decent heat shield lol.
  7. Now that you mention it I've never measured what the drive actually reads/writes at when I'm running machine learning stuff praying I'm training it right lol. As I mentioned I put the heatsink back on as it looked more aesthetically pleasing. Also I swear heavy IDEs like Android studio or eclipse boot up and also load up workspaces wayyy faster, maybe cause of the superior random read/write speeds?
  8. idk if I'm using it as "intended" lol, I just got it since 1tb for 140 USD (and being an actually nvme drive) wasn't bad at all, plus at my college we've found tensor flow projects run significant faster on better storage, which I would benefit from.
  9. I just browse the web, game, edit photos in Photoshop and write /compile code on my PC, I'd imagine none of those are intensive applications regarding storage.
  10. After a bit of research and consulting my motherboard's manual, to my dismay the M.2 slot that actually supported NVMe 1.3 speeds was the one covered by a heatsink screwed to the mobo. As I was installing the SSD I wondered if it even made a difference; the only reason I put the heat sink back on is the motherboard looks nicer with it on. I mean to be fair the slot is right below the CPU and right above where my gpu is, so I supposed it's subjected to a fair amount of heat but still...
  11. Also sadly the other user I was talking about who has the same issue posted how they use ryzen timing checker and I didn't help. I really don't understand this problem...
  12. Yes, do you think this is specifically how ryzen and nvidia software components in particular are interacting with eachother? Cause I really wish I had a spare amd video card to test this out with.
  13. Yes lol they are in those aforementioned slots, keep in mind I have been troubleshooting this for literally 2 months so i exhausted most of the basic solutions. A month ago I used ryzen mem checker to adjust the memory timings to what it suggested (I followed a tutorial), it did nothing.
