  1. Do you have 'Gear Down' mode enabled in BIOS? This forces even-numbered timings (e.g. your CL15 would be CL16) -- it should help with stability, though, with it enabled. Are you running both the A-Data and Corsair kit together? 4x DIMMs is harder on the Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) than 2x DIMMs .... and IMC on Ryzen 1000-series and 2000-series was pretty weak. Also, try bumping your SOC voltage up to ~1.1V. That *usually* helps stabilizes DRAM overclocks. Stock should be 0.9V or something?
  2. You can still play with the timings, but probably won't get as tight compared to Samsung B-Die kit. Samsung B-Die kits (like top %) can do DDR4-3600+ with CL14 timings, which is pretty insane. For an example, with my B-Die DDR4-3000 CL14 kits, I can overclock 4x 8GB sticks to DDR4-3600 with CL15 timings. That said, I'm dialing in...probably... 75% of the timings manually. Primary, secondary, and tertiary timings, etc. I used this guide as reference... https://github.com/integralfx/MemTestHelper/blob/master/DDR4 OC Guide.md
  3. Oh wow...I didn't even notice that (to be fair, I didn't even look at the PSU he linked) Has '500' in the model number, but Rated Power = 350W. Marketing Tom Foolery at it's finest.
  4. Whoops...mah bad. In OP @grenadier_09's case, that is one of the few possible symptoms of the CPU not being recognized 100% by the motherboard. The CPU frequency is 0.0 MHz. It will also depend if the Microcode, from the existing BIOS firmware, is enough know you have a Zen2 / Zen3 or AM4 CPU in the socket....or a block of silicon sand in the socket. If OP is able to get into the BIOS, he / she should be able to update the BIOS. Plus, I believe his board also has Q-Flash Plus feature (e.g. update the BIOS without CPU / RAM / GPU, via USB stick).
  5. Soo...that 4-pin connector you are talking about is for the CPU, NOT for a Graphics Card. It even says in the specification page you linked to. It has NO proper 6-pin or 8-pin connection(s) for Graphics Cards -- you need to replace that 350W PSU.
  6. Do you have another picture with different angle of the damage? It's hard to see in that one picture... Not sure if this is damage you are talking about...or some kind of additional damage......or the camera flash / reflection from angle of the picture
  7. X570 ad B550 is not 'Ryzen 5000 series Ready' out of the box, especially if it was a motherboard manufactured PRIOR to Ryzen 5000-series launch. You still need to update the BIOS to a Ryzen 5000-series supported version. Any of the X570 / B550 motherboard you buy NOW, should support 5000-series Ryzen, though. Board manufacturers should be shipping boards with it pre-flashed with the proper BIOS firmware. @Bombastinator WHICH B550 Aorus board are you using? Arous Pro / Ultra / Eilte? ATX / mATX / micro-ATX version? @rowanhazard Ryzen 5800X
  8. I was surprised, but a friend of mine (local to me) was able to a hold of a Ryzen 5800X on launch day. Apparently, he just called MemoryExpress the day before (and reserved one?), and picked it up at the local store the next morning. Already swapped, and running in his water cooled system... *shrugs*
  9. Oh...well that makes sense. 'Silent Mode' keeps the cooling fans at a minimum, so then the CPU won't be boosting as high (probably same goes for the GPU). You are not going to get max performance in 'Silent Mode.' That's the opposite of what 'Silent Mode' does... Switch to 'Performance' or 'Turbo' mode and check again. 3.0 GHz? That makes even more sense. Max Turbo Boost, assuming power / thermal is not limited, for the i5-10750H is 5.0 GHz.
  10. 80*C ~ 90*C on the CPU? The i7-10750H could be reducing its Turbo Boost. Base Clock for that CPU is 2.60 GHz, so it's running at around 2.x ~ 3.x GHz, it will bottleneck. Specs say the laptop has 32GB of RAM... Monitor CPU usage, and frequency.
  11. What are the specs of your laptop? Could be CPU bottleneck. I don't know about Minecraft, but if you run R6 Siege on Medium details, GPU usage will obviously be lower. What is your CPU usage in R6 Siege though?
  12. That Antec PSU should be more then plenty. Plus, the Eco Gold Zen is a Tier B unit, too. If it works with another GPU in the slot, then evidence points towards a faulty RTX 3070 still...unless you can test the GPU in a friend's computer or something.
  13. Not the correct tab. 'SPD' just reading what is flashed into the RAM profile. Check the 'Memory' tab. DDR4-3200 should say DRAM Frequency: 1600 MHz.
  14. Looks like a faulty fan. What case is this? You can ask the case manufacturer's customer service to send you a replacement fan or something.
  15. Are you able to try the RTX 3070 in another system / PC? Just to rule out the graphics card is not faulty from the factory (it happens). Are you using using the top slot, or the second / bottom M.2 slot? Top slot is using the extra 4 lanes from the CPU. The other slots are using the PCI-E 4.0 / 3.0 provided by the B550 chipset itself. (If you are still trying to rule out that as a possibility)
  16. Okay, cool. Another thing would be to check if the RTX 3070 is going into the actual PCI-E X16 slot properly / fully. This has happened to nVidia / AMD GPUs BEFORE but VERY rare. The backplate / cooler / rear I/O shield might be too big or wide, and the GPU might not be sitting in the PCI-E X16 slot properly. As in, it *might* have some fitment issues with the motherboard / case you are using. Upload a picture if you can Well... Ryzen 5600x provides 16 + 4 PCI-E lanes. 16 allocated for GPU, and 4 for a M.2 SSD. Unless somethin
  17. Also, make sure your BIOS is up-to-date. BIOS version 1212 is needed to properly support Ryzen 5000-series with that motherboard. B550 motherboards do not necessarily support Ryzen 5000-series out of the box, especially if it was older stock board. If the board was shipped to retailers before BIOS 1212 (Nov-05-2020) was released, it won't have the supporting BIOS flashed onto the board.
  18. What do you mean 1x PCI-E 8-pin for the GPU, and 1x PCI-E 6-pin for the fans? Both 8-pin and 6-pin are for powering the entire GPU / Card... Fan is powered and controlled by a controller on the board itself. For ASUS motherboards 1-long and 3-short beeps = No VGA Detected error. Ryzen 5600x CPU nor B550 motherboard has iGPU. If no graphics card is detected in the slot, the VGA error will sound. Re-seat the graphics card, and double check your PCI-E 8-pin and 6-pin connections.
  19. Default JEDEC spec for DDR4 RAM is DDR4-2133. The computer will first boot up at default settings, and won't run any higher frequency until you manually enable XMP / A-XMP / DOCP within the BIOS. If you flash the BIOS, return BIOS settings to factory defaults, clear CMOS, yank the CMOS battery, etc, etc, it will go back to default / auto. Which is JEDEC DDR4-2133. Soo...you should be fine.
  20. Depends on how much you use / need G-Sync. 6800 XT is the better performing card, but you won't lose out too much with an RTX 3070 either.
  21. The If the card it 2.5 ~ 2.7 slots, it will eat up the first PCI-E X1 slot. You'll need to use the bottom PCI-E X1 slot.
  22. 'Tech Jesus' reviews the H500 and H510 Elite. The same case as the H510 (non-Elite) ...but with tempered glass front.
  23. Oh, I looked at the different version...whoops. That is still fine, again, even if we assume max current (0.6A) per Halo Lux. 3 ~ 4 of them per DRGB header.
  24. UV light in build was to NOT kill the organic growth, but to add color effect. UV reactive tubing and pre-mix coolants, and such exists / existed. But the trend is just now LEDs / RGBs, and colored pre-mix coolants. As already mentioned, the liquid is already treated / mixed with organic growth inhibitors / killers. Like this (clear or color options are available): https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-cryofuel-clear-concentrate-100ml
  25. Correct, it doesn't matter for a custom loop -- as mentioned by 'Tech Jesus'. In a custom loop, you just run the pump for 24 ~ 48 hours, and let it circulate the air bubbles to the reservoir. Then just top of the reservoir....and the bubbles are gone. Can't do with with a sealed AIO.
