  1. Hi all, I'm looking to add two more NVMe SSDs to my build, however I only have one NVMe slot that's already taken on my motherboard. However, under my GPU I have a free x16 PCIe slot. So I need a PCIe to NVMe adapter. However, I don't want to suffocate my GPU. I want to put my SSDs somewhere else on the case, e.g. in the hard drive rack. I'm looking for a cable that goes from PCIe to NVMe, and ideally fits two of those. I don't know what this is called, could anyone help me out?
  2. I ran DDU and installed drivers again. Let's hope this fixes it. If this is true, then I'm kind of fucked. One monitor is running 165Hz and the other is 60. I guess I could go full screen.
  3. Hi all, Is it a modern hardware / OS limitation that I can't watch a [YouTube] video whilst playing a game and have both run smoothly? For example I like having music videos on the side whilst playing low-effort games like Rocket League, however doing this makes either the game stutter, the video, or both. For reference I'm running a Ryzen 3800X and a 5700 XT so hardware is no issue here. FYI, I'm running Windows 10.
  4. Hi all, I just bought an Aorus FI27Q monitor, and when sharing screens in Discord or capturing the screen in OBS, the colours are washed out. Furthermore, in Discord looking at Google images causes the shared picture to get tinted red, green, blue, violet, etc. In OBS, capturing the screen also doesn't update unless the mouse is moved (the image is still otherwise). This only happens on the specific monitors - sharing other monitor is OK. It is fine when I capture a single window. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  5. Yes, as it says above, I tried many different combinations of SATA power and data cables, including ones that worked on different drives.
  6. Hi all, I just changed my motherboard from a Gigabyte B150M to a Gigabyte Aorus B450. This is to go from i5-6600 to Ryzen. I changed nothing apart from CPU, RAM, and Motherboard. All the connections were restored. However, when I booted up my new PC, my E: drive (Seagate ST2000LM003) was no longer connected. After a while, it connected (Windows said: "Removable device connected"). On the next restart, it was gone, again. I fiddled around, changing SATA power and SATA data cables around, nothing seemed to work. Eventually I unplugged the drive from the system
  7. I used Cinebench R20, yes. What would you recommend instead? I'm happy to investigate further. I will also be trying single-channel soon. As for the drop at 1866, yeah, turns out my CPU supports only 1333 and 1600, so I'm guessing at 1866 it had to skip half the cycles, that it couldn't take advantage of, which may have given an effective speed of 933MHz. Or something along those lines.
  8. Well, it doesn't seem to be the case. Apart from running 1866MHz, which I have discovered is unsupported and slows me down (I've been wasting CPU power for years), the diff between 1333MHz and 1600MHz does not seem to be significant in any way. Rating at 1333MHz (cb) Rating at 1600MHz (cb) Rating at 1866MHz (cb) Run 1 1418 1416 986 Run 2 1404 1414 971 Run 3 1429 1399 967
  9. Update: This is in fact because running 1866 MHz is unsupported by CPU. 1600MHz gets near the same results as 1333MHz.
  10. UPDATE: I've just realised that running at 1333MHz, the latency is 9-9-9-28. However, running at 1866MHz, the latency is 11-13-13-31, which apparently is enough to make my PC 1/3 slower. In that case, would the much higher speeds offered by DDR4 improve the problem? I am planning on upgrading to DDR4.
  11. Hi all, I've been trying to test whether my Gigabyte B150M-D3H DDR3 motherboard, which is limited at 1866MHz RAM speed, was bottlenecking my CPU. I ran Cinebench ( 5 times on RAM speeds 1333 and 1866, and for some reason, running 1333MHz yielded a higher average rating at 1414, whereas 1866MHz yielded 981. Rating at 1333MHz (cb) Rating at 1866MHz (cb) Run 1 1418 986 Run 2 1404 971 Run 3 1429 967
