  1. TEC modules are great as long as they are within the specification in which they are intended to operate, otherwise they get saturated and would start acting as a thermal insulator and perform worse, and they are not efficient and you are consuming a ton of power for minuscule gains at the very best and even worse in most scenarios
  2. It performed worse than a 360 Rad as I remember from his testing, so what's the point of wasting 200W
  3. What is Mark Bench? I'm confused, can you link to a video where they've used that benchmark?
  4. To achieve higher video memory usage you also have to push the graphical settings higher which is more intensive for the GPU, so how do you conclude that it's a memory issue? It sounds to me that your GPU is overheating and dropping clocks when higher loads are put on it
  5. Memory speed isn't ideal but it's fine, you'd likely be getting lower FPS than other users who are on 3000-3200Mhz but not by a huge margin, from what I'm seeing around 100FPS is what the Ryzen 2600 can achieve at stock, if you want to test your card alone it is more reliable to use synthetic benchmarks like Unigine Superposition as it removes the CPU out of the equation.
  6. Yeah it is a CPU bottleneck, other users are getting similar FPS on a Ryzen 2600 in Modern Warfare
  7. It is likely a CPU bottleneck, is this Modern Warfare? what speed is your memory running at?
  8. If you want to replace the heatsink with a 120/140mm radiator then you'd have to drill holes on the side of the XBox for the fan, as the top fan cannot pass the radiator, it is possible but you'd need heavy modifications and isn't as easy as you might think with no gains to be seen.
  9. Hopefully it would work out, otherwise there's nothing left but the Motherboard and CPU that are causing these issues, and it's more likely to be the Motherboard
  10. It's such a difficult issues to diagnose as Windows doesn't provide reasons for why the memory is suddenly in reserve, I suggest you try out different sticks or move the sticks in different locations and make sure they're in Slot A2 and B2, if they already are then try moving them to A1 and B1 On the left of the memory slots would be the socket location
  11. The fact you don't see much change between Ray Tracing and traditional Rasterization is because the latter method has been perfected and meticulously worked on, but it does require a lot of work to achieve that and the lighting isn't dynamic, Ray Tracing makes that process much simpler, it might be slower to run now but it will keep getting better, and once GPUs with Ray Tracing are standard among the common population then rasterization isn't required anymore. It really is more of a Developer feature rather than a Customer feature, you likely won't notice much change when the indu
  12. It did gain mainstream adoption though, with both AMD and the new consoles having support for it, what other mainstream gaming platforms out there other than Nintendo that doesn't have it? I think people don't understand that this technology is still in its infancy and its potential is not even fully realized, it will take time before a full transformation to happen until all games and every aspect of lightning is Ray Traced with no option for rasterization methods, but it will happen eventually, it also allows developers to focus on other aspects of the game rather than having to
  13. Have you tried setting the default adapter in BIOS? If it would be PCIe or iGPU, not sure what it's exactly called but it's on the same page as enabling the Multi Monitor Support
  14. It isn't working as intended if 8GB is stuck in Hardware Reserved Not sure how to fix that problem though, from what I've seen the issue has presented itself in various scenarios and there isn't a particular solution that I was able to gather, sometimes this type of thing requires a Windows re-installation as it could be caused by a fault in Windows, but I don't recommend that as it's a headache to backup your data and re-install Windows
  15. That's assuming that you're not using an xxxxG CPU which has integrated graphics.
