  1. Awesome, cheers bro. I turned the core voltage up 1 point at a time and ended up with a score of 10804 in Cinebench R23 with -28 points in the Curve Optimiser, average clock across all cores was 4.53 GHz, max clock 4.55 GHz, max voltage observed was 1.231v, max temp 63C. That's about 5.1% improvement over stock just by turning down the voltage. Pretty happy with that!
  2. Hi All, I'm doing some OC / undervolt testing and using Cinebench R23 as my stress test. I'm using a Ryzen 5 5600X. I'm just testing different configurations to see how PBO, undervolt and other settings affect overall performance, CPU voltage, temps etc. but I have run into a weird problem where Cinebench will close midway through a Multicore run. Windows still keeps running fine but Cinebench closes. I am currently running -30 points undervolt in PBO 2 with PBO limits disabled so it doesn't negate my undervolt. Is it normal for an undervolt to crash software? I thought it would cr
  3. Bro... let me explain clearly so you understand. 1) I tried ASUS GPU Tweak 2 a few weeks ago and did the OC scan etc and decided I didn't like it so I removed the OC (deleted the profile) and uninstalled the software. That was weeks ago. 2) I ran DDU a couple of days ago because I was having a different issue (random black screen). The OC from ASUS GPU Tweak 2 was still lingering even after the DDU. 3) Yesterday I decided I wanted to reinstall ASUS GPU Tweak 2 to see if I could get rid of the OC it applied once and for all. No matter what I tried the OC remained.
  4. Hey bro, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I did a DDU recently for another issue I was having (random black screen) and that was after I played with ASUS GPU Tweak 2. I reinstalled the software but I cant find any option to remove the OC scan. When I click OC scan it shows the settings that it has applied but it doesnt give me an option to remove them, only to scan again. Oh well, it's not the end of the world.
  5. Hi all, I normally use MSI afterburner for overclocking my GPU however I thought I would Give "ASUS GPU tweak 2" a go since its made by the same manufacturer as my graphics card and it supports OC scanning whereas MSI Afterburner doesn't do OC scanning for 30 series GPU's yet. So anyway I did an OC scan and it got pretty mediocre results with +85MHz core and +400MHz memory. I can get +135MHz core and +1000MHz memory on MSI Afterburner with it stable. So anyway, now I cant work out how to remove the GPU Tweak OC "Curve". Every time I start my computer it defaults to that mild OC ins
  6. Hi all, I recently built a computer and I noticed that my ram is running at CL22 (CPU-Z told me this in the memory tab) but it's rated to CL16. It is a 16Gb kit of Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200MHz. Do I have to manually set it to CL16? I have already turned up the clock speed to 3200 MHz in bios. Cheers
  7. Hi All, I am helping a friend with his PC. Unfortunately he lives in a diferent city so I am trying to help him from afar. The PC was running fine until one day he came home and someone had been sanding plasterboard in the hallway. His computer was running in his room and had sucking in some of the dust (not heaps, just a little bit). Ever since then it crashes under load. It will run all night just idling but shortly after launching a game or trying to install software etc itll crash. There's no BSOD and no errors recorded in the windows relibility monitor other than "Windows cras
  8. Thanks for all the replies so quickly! The box was perfect, no signs of damage. The GPU works fine, I was getting around 350FPS on Doom Eternal at max settings 1080p (still waiting for my 1440p monitor to arrive). The bracket isn’t scuffed at all but might have some fingerprints on it. It looks like it just wasn’t stamped properly or something. It’s hard to tell but the end isn’t perpendicular to the io plate as well. I guess the easiest thing is to just gently bend it with some pliers.
  9. Hi everyone. I built my first computer last night and it all went smoothly except for one thing, the GPU’s mounting bracket was bent right out of the box. I didn’t notice until it came to screwing it in but there’s no way I could’ve bent it, I was extremely careful and gentle with everything. I called and emailed the company that I bought it off. They haven’t responded to my email yet and the guy on the phone seemed to think it was my fault saying “we have sold thousands of graphics cards and have never had this issue”. It was computerlounge.co.nz for anyone who is wondering. Have a
  10. But its not throttling based on temp. During my testing I got the GPU to 80C on stock settings and it still didn't throttle. Most of the time its around 75C while playing games and randomly drops down to 725 or 675MHz. I think its to do with AMD PowerPlay bugging out because it doesn't throttle if you turn it off through the MSI Afterburner settings and the temps stay the same. I've done some googling and found that 75C for the GPU is pretty standard in a laptop. Even laptops equipped with the 960M throttle when stressed and their temps go up to ~90C (XPS15 and Asus G501 for example). I don't
  11. Hey buddy, I have the same laptop and I was having similar issues, although not 10FPS haha. I installed MSI afterburner and set the graphs to only monitor the GPU temp, CPU temp and GPU clock speed and found that the GPU clock would drop from 800MHz to 725 or 675MHz sometimes even though the GPU temp was only about 75C. I did some testing and found that if you turn off AMD PowerPlay in the MSI settings it will stay at 800MHz and the temps still remain stable at about 75C. I even overclocked by 11.1% to 888MHz on the core and from 1125-1250MHz on the VRAM and still got stable clock speeds and s
