  1. First off, sorry if I posted this in the wrong topic. I figured since it's somewhat relevant to CPUs, it should be fine. Also sorry for any formatting issues, I'm posting from my phone. So I was looking into getting an external capture card (probably an Elgato HD60S) because when I try to game at over 60fps while streaming from the same computer, OBS has problems rendering frames. I'm pretty sure it's because the GPU is working really hard to render the game then process some of those frames and encode them. Either way, processing the frames on a different computer wil
  2. Ok, I was able to fix it and I understand why it wasn't working (probably, correct me if I'm wrong) The main issue was the GPU afterall. It was being hit too hard by the game itself to render the frames for OBS to encode. I was able to solve it by capping my framerate. First off, I game on a 144hz monitor and I can push out 120 ish on medium settings in R6S. I previously tried that while I was using NVENC and it didn't work. I switched the game to borderless so I could easily tweak OBS settings and that's where the problem arose. The vsync option doesn't always work in borderle
  3. NVENC (stream constantly at ~20FPS) x.264 (stream also ran at 20FPS constantly, no more lock-ups because I reset the task to normal priority)
  4. I should have enough time to try it before I have to head out. Hold on
  5. Wouldn't downscaling just add more strain on the CPU?
  6. Lately I've been wanting to get into streaming R6S to twitch but I've been having a whole host of problems. I've tried using both OBS Studio and Shadow Play but both have similar results (surprisingly) I started off just googling a bunch of stuff related to my issues and stumbled across this gem, but even that didn't help. In that thread, a person mentions a stats tab in OBS and according to it, I'm having problems with "Frames missed due to rendering lag" so my stream is only outputting close to 30fps when my game itself runs at up to 100fps with medium settings.
  7. Right now I do use a surge protector, but it's an older power strip. I was planning on going with the EVGA one anyway, ordering now.
  8. I'm looking at getting a new power supply because my current one is slowly dying. It's ripple currents have gotten too high. I so far have two in mind, both 550w and 80+ Gold. One is the EVGA SuperNova 550w G3 and the other is the Corsair RM550x. Online, it sounds like both have pretty low ripple currents, but is the Corsair unit really worth the $20 more? The exact reason for the new power supply is on my last post here. Long story short, ripple currents are making my computer unstable.
  9. After doing some digging and looking on other forums, it sounds like of all things it's a power supply problem. I have an EVGA 600B and it sounds like it has a rep of having problems after a couple years. It has been a few years so I shouldn't say I'm surprised. From what I found, the problem is that when installing a video driver, the card temporarily goes into a P0 power state which is the highest power draw mode, and also explains why the fans ramp up around then too. The problem comes with ripple currents or something similar. Basically, the power supply isn't providing "cl
  10. But that's the only GPU in the system, I didn't get an APU. Plus if I go into driver details or dxdiag with the Microsoft basic display adapter installed, it shows it's a 1060. I'll try re seating the GPU and it's power cable after I get some sleep.
  11. I forgot to add, Running Windows 10 64 bit, Version 1803 Build 17134.112
  12. The title kind of says it all. I recently upgraded to a Ryzen 5 system and now whenever I try to install my GPU drivers (GTX 1060 6gb) it starts working, then blackscreens.That part is normal, installing drivers has always done that for me. But the problem is that a few seconds after it bluescreens, the computer power cycles. Then when Windows boots (or tries to) it crashes with error code Video Scheduler Internal Error. I know it has to do with only the GPU because I can install other drivers just fine. It always crashes on the GPU driver. So far I've tried multiple versions o
  13. I just started recording stuff on my switch with an old HDMI capture card I found laying around and it doesn't have a mic input. It's a cheap capture card that just records to a flashdrive, and can't be connected to a PC so I can't use OBS or something to record video and audio so I have to use another device and manually sync the audio (me talking) to the video. The only other mic I have is a studio mic I use for my PC and it would be a pain to set it up in my living room with my phantom power supply (although I have a Behringer U-Phoria UM2 which does phantom power over USB) and my scissor m
  14. I have an older Z97 Motherboard (GA-Z97X-SLI) and it has an M.2 slot. I've been thinking about getting a new SSD since my original one is older and is only 120gb. On the motherboard's website, it says it can do up to 10Gb/s on its M.2 slot. So could I use an NVMe SSD like this one or should I use a slower SATA M.2 Drive like this one? I would like the WD Black simply because it will be faster but I'm not sure if it will work with my motherboard. Also, I bought this motherboard used from Microcenter awhile back and it didn't come with a screw for an M.2 Drive. If I were to buy
