  1. Thanks for the feedback all. I'm still not 100% sound why this works, but, I will remember it in the future.
  2. I am as confused as everyone else is. It makes zero sense to me, thus my question. But, he is now playing games with 60% (1440p) CPU usage instead of 100% (1080p). GPU usage has also increase. Before, he was around 70% of 3D usage, now it is constantly maxed out. In Squad, he was getting an average FPS of 31, now he is getting 60. It makes absoluetly zero sense to me, that's why I am here.
  3. This is what I thought also. I checked that he was accidently rendering at a higher resolution when displaying 1080p. Nope, was most certainly on a 1080p going to 1440p @Downkey. I came across this article when googling which may explain it: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/9ikrwz/why_does_increasing_resolution_lower_cpu_load/
  4. Hi All, Quick question for the community, my friend was getting horrific FPS in games such as Squad and Warzone. While watching task manager, we noticed the CPU was a bottleneck. After a bit of trial and error, we switched from a 1080p monitor to a 1440p monitor and noticed his FPS almost double in these titles, and CPU usage was not constantly at 100%. Could someone explain to me how CPU performance decreases when you increase the resolution of the monitor? I've done a bit of googling around this topic and I can't seem to understand it. Specs for reference: CPU: i
  5. Just putting it in the other 16x slot won't be enough. Try and reseat your CPU as @HelpfulTechWizardsaid.
  6. What was your process of elimiation? Did it not work in another system?
  7. Interesting. What would be the root cause of that, a pin not making contact?
  8. Yep, best thing to do with these issues is a process of elimiation. Best way to test if it is the GPU is to either put a new GPU in the 16x slot, or put your current GPU in another system. If it works, either your Motherboard or PSU has had it. Otherwise, you have a dead GPU.
  9. Have you tried a different GPU in the 16x slot? Does the GPU show any signs of power (fans spinning etc).
  10. It could be a range of things. Have you checked that all your cables, to and from the PSU are seated properly, and that the GPU is also seated properly?
  11. I've never tried it honestly. In my head of CFD, it would create a positive pressure and would only feed cold air to the radiator. My advice would be to try different ways around and put your system under a sustained load using some software. Fans are easy to flip around. Just monitor what your max temps are.
  12. I would have a google of it mate. In some cases yes, but what you will always have is air being pulled through areas which are not filtered.
  13. On the basis that the GPU is mostly blowing away from your radiator, then I would top mount. For your rear fan, it should be an outtake, however, that would give you a negative pressure system, 4 exhausts and 3 intakes.
  14. I briefly looked at the holes on the back of it. 2 of the three fans appear to be a blower out while the furtherst right is a blower up, is it not?
  15. It's personal choice most of the time. The temperature difference is negligible, as seen in the picture below. However, given your GPU has an emphasis on a blowout design (out the back), I would personally mount your radiator on top. From your 3 intakes, very little of the cool air provided from the top intake will be affected by the GPU or Mobo. It's a shame your case doesn't support fans on the bottom, as it would have been great to have an intake for the GPU. However, that would likely cause a neutral pressure, or possibly even negative.
