  1. I have a new PC that i built myself, specs below. My problem with it is that when I first turn the PC on from sleep/fully off in the morning about 2-5 minutes after turn on it will randomly crash (no blue screen, straight off) and then restart itself, but after it restarts itself I have no issues for the rest of the day, unless I turn it off for an extended period for any reason. I am unsure how to fix this, any suggestions??? Specs R9 5950X Zotac RTX 3090 Trinity Corsair Vengance 64GB (2X 32GB) 3600 MHz ASRock AM4/X570 Steel Legend Define R6 Corsair HX 1200W
  2. I think he bent the 2 pins, and they touched, I dunno, I didn't do it, but it was the VSS/GND and VDDCR_SOC pins that were touching and I think he realised he fucked up when he turned it on and they shorted.... I could be wrong Theoretically, if there is no internal damge it will be fine.... I mean if you look hard enough you can find a reddit post about it, as I mentioned in my post it was the VSS/GND and VDDCR_SOC pins, with alternatives next to them so theoretically it was fine I think thats the plan if he doesn't want it, as you know, I do h
  3. My friend has a terrible track record with AMD CPUs, he has somehow bent pins on 3 seperate CPUs, but one of the most recent ones, was a spectacular one, in a way which broke off two pins off a R7 3800X, the pins were which J23 and K22 relate to VSS/GND and VDDCR_SOC respectfully, there is pins next to them which have the same function which means internally, in theory, they are connected so it should should be able to work still, so the question is how much current does these supplies require as it could still work..... I realise that its not probably not a great idea to use it but he is a bi
  4. As the title says I am looking to buy a R9 5950X, I have been trying to get one in the UK for a couple weeks now and no luck, the rest of the PC is here and I just need the CPU, is there any news of stock dropping soon or is it worth going to a scalper (I don't wanna do this, but I need a PC as I am stuck on my laptop) as its only £1000 vs £850, which is more than buying a temp CPU just for a couple weeks until I can actually get it. So big question is, I need a CPU soon, is there any news on when new CPUs will become avaible or not???
  5. The motherboard should have a memory support list to download, but yours only has it from zen1+zen2 not zen3 (Vermeer), but the zen2 list probably will be similar to the zen3 list. As for the ones you have mentioned CORSAIR appears alot on that list so you should be fine, but I would explicitly check as I haven't. As for zen2 vs zen3, zen3 likes faster RAM again so the 3600MHz out of your 2 options might be better, but 3200MHz is fine as well. (the performance up lift will only be 1-5% depending) https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B550I-AORUS-PRO-AX-rev-10/support#support-doc
  6. We haven't heard anothing about the 2660 ti, this time around, we are still unsure if its all going to be RTX or if there will be able GTX.but as for the RTX 3060 ti, romours are saying in December at somepoint, but this is hard to say, especially with nVidias supply issues at the moment this might be pushed back to January, weh it will be easier for them to get stock as the Christmas rush is over
  7. Hey, I want to get an ultrawide as part of my next rig, I have the other displays from my last rig as well, but I am trying to cut the number down a little bit. I will mainly be gaming on the system, but I will also be doing work on it as well, mainly CAD and PCB design, and screen realatsate is always handy. it will be running off a RTX 3080 (min) but maybe a RTX 3090. I have alooked a wee bit into what I can get, and I have found the following 3 options, my budget is capped about £1000, but obviously less is better if possible. MSI Optix MAG341CQ (3440X1440 100Hz, 21:9) £440 (put
  8. Personally I feel like this is a move by intel that means when it comes out they can point at the game and go "See we are better" that being said, I also can't see the game being terrible on AMD even still, because AMD is starting to get more and more market share, it would be a mistake to just ignore AMD, especially as the AMD fans are a bit vocal at times. I personally don't think neither AMD, nVidea or intel should be doing stuff as I feel like it artifically affects performance in a way to make the one side look better, but it happens but especially now the FX days are gone, they can't jus
  9. The problem is that cost an extra £500 roughly, and digs into the budget for the ultrawide, as I don't know the cost of that yet its hard to pull the trigger on one, but it is in my mind if the ultrawide isn't too expensive, although it does require a "downgrade" from a 2TB SSD to a 1TB SSD I was going with that motherboard, as it has enough USBs, I ran out of USBs on my TR build which I believe had 13, so yea, I use quite a few, which stops B550 I believe as for the other 2, X570 gaming edge, hasn't got as many rear USB 3.2s as that one, same with the X570 Tomahawk. (I get this is
  10. From what I can see from a brief search, the 1660 (non super) with a i5 9400F gets about 200 FPS, not sure on the settings though and the CPU and GPU are both heavily utilised, so I would say with a 3770 and a 1660 Super, you might be bottlenecked by the CPU, but 144 FPS at 1080 should be reachable and not too far out of the possible ballpark.
  11. Hey pretty much I want to build a new PC, as my laptop aint cutting it and my old desktop died (think it was the GPU and possibly Motherboard that died on it (1st gen TR)). Informationis below Budget (including currency): £3750 (GBP) (I know my wallets gonna regret me saying thisbut I could strech to £4k if the gains are good enough) Country: Scotland Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: MATLAB, CAD (Mainly autodesk, but other ones will be done), Several AAA, lots of indie games, VR Other details: I have the keyboard and mouse as well as the extra s
  12. Hello So I run 2 weekly sessions of D&D online, on roll20, and I went to make the tokens the other day, at which point my machine seamed to start having issues, so the output from the image is shown below, it just flashes through all the colours, and any image I upload to roll20 looks similar. How do I fix this as this is causing issues.
  13. Shit sorry thought it was the otherway round, yea, stick with the Acer, it looks good enough for your uses
  14. The Lenovo has a better CPU, so if your just needing CPU power go for that, it will do webrowsing and light gaming etc just fine, as well as do some CPU heavy tasks as well. The Acer one if you need a gaming laptop or need a GPU for whatever work you do. From what you've said though Lenovo will be fine, as long as you are streaming non gaming stuff and what you are doing isn't something that requires GPU, like if its just cameras for you chatting or something like that your good
