  1. I only see the Lancool II MESH RGB and the Lancool II Mesh Performance (X). The Mesh RGB version does not have a rear fan. The Mesh Performance (X) does -- but the front fans are not RGB. Some retailers (e.g. NewEgg is one of them) have the -X after the name.

  2. Are you able to monitor the temperatures of the VRAM and VRMs? Usually the cooler makes contact with the VRAM chips and/or VRMs, and provide them with active cooling -- so no JUST the GPU die gets cooled. Now with an AIO over the GPU die, sure that will run cooler, but how is the rest of the GPU doing now? What was the reason for going away from the EVGA cooler in the first place?
  3. Interesting outcome... I've used Alcohol 120% in the past, but that was with Windows XP / Vista / 7. Didn't notice much issues back then. What Nero software do you use? Only thing Nero I have is their CD / DVD burning software ... had that up until ~2017 when I stopped using a 5.25" DVD optical drive in my build.
  4. Best (and ideal) configuration is bottom intake, top exhaust. I don't know WHY you would do the opposite -- top intake, bottom exhaust. Or BOTH top and bottom as exhaust makes even less sense...
  5. Are you running an RX-580 right now, like the PC in the NewEgg page? 5600 XT is a decent jump in performance, but again, that can depend on the game. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2580?vs=2524 If you want a worthy upgrade, I'd go the RX 5700 or RX 5700 XT route. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2522?vs=2524 With RX 6000-series hitting the market, and RTX 3000-series already "here", might be worthwhile have a look into those as possible options. Retailers should be clearing out RTX 2000-series and RX 5000-series GPUs now...migh
  6. Wait....those three top fans are configured as EXHAUST. You are running a NEGATIVE air pressure set-up in the pictures. Move your fans to INTAKE in the front... Air blowing into the case, feeding the GPU, and allowing air over the top of the GPU, you may see reduced GPU and VRAM temperatures.
  7. Yes. If they are MOLEX fans, they connect directly to the PSU molex connection(s). They do not go through the motherboard fan headers at all.
  8. Are you not able to flash an ACTUAL GTX 550Ti 1GB BIOS image onto the card? You can using NVFlash... https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-nvflash/
  9. If THAT case (in the NewEgg link) is the case you have...then it is a CyberPower customized Phanteks P360X case. http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P360X.html That case, can support UP TO a 400mm (15.7") graphics card.
  10. @Mariowqe You need to understand the purpose / function of AMD VSR / nVidia DSR. What the technology does is render your images are a higher resolution, downsize it back to your monitor's native resolution, giving you sharper images. It does not give you more real estate per-se. What is coming out of the output ports to the monitors is just a 4K image / frame. Internal to the GPU is 8K, but coming out of it is really just 4K. 5120 x 2800 is due to the bandwidth limitation spec of DisplayPort 1.4. Even for the new RTX 3090, has HDMI 2.1 and Displ
  11. It will depend. What games to you play? What is the frequency rating, and timings of your existing Corsair RAM?
  12. Are you using VSR to render at 5120x2880, and then downscale is down to 3840x2160 (4K) ? Otherwise, how are you exceeding the monitor's pixel / resolution?
  13. So you are not driving single 8K displays....just multiple 4K displays. That is different. Are you gaming at 4K or across multiple 4K displays, or just using them as video output? Gaming on multiple displays, you'll need a pretty beefy GPU to get any respectable FPS + graphics quality ( RTX 2070 Super or greater). If just trying to run multiple 4K displays, something like a GTX 1650 Super, or AMD equivalent, would suffice. GTX 1660 (Super) and up, or AMD equivalent, for multiple DisplayPort outputs.
  14. Some GPUs in the market have it where the RGB can be controlled / connected via 3-pin ARGB header. The Sapphire NITRO+ 5700 XT, like mine, has this feature. The ASUS StriX however, is through software only -- ASUS Aura Sync. You'll most likely need to use ASUS' own RGB control for the card, and then Gigabyte's RGB Fusion 2.0 for everything else (e.g. motherboard, RAM, case lighting, etc). No problems running an ASUS GPU in a Gigabyte motherboard (or the other way around), though.
  15. Do you have a 8K display? Are you planning to run 8K gaming? What are you trying to do that NEEDS 8K? PCI-E 3.0 and PCI-E 4.0 are backwards / forwards compatible.
  16. Yes, main power connector as in the 24-pin. You basically just need to supply power the motherboard...and that's it. The 12V 8-pin is for the CPU...but Q-Flash Plus doesn't care if the CPU is in or not. Awesome! Good that features like Q-Flash Plus is now being made available on mid-tier motherboards. Only until the last 1 ~ 2 years, it was only available on top-tier boards (e.g. Aorus Master / Extreme / OC Force). Go back 4 ~ 6 years, and ASUS was only one that even HAD this feature...and ONLY on their top-tier ROG / Deluxe motherboards --
  17. It seems to be asking for the Admin password for the BIOS... Do you know if there was mention of a Admin password in the documentation, etc, for that laptop? (Usually there is no password set).
  18. You can see up to ~10% performance improvement with higher frequency + tighter timing RAM with Ryzen 5000-series... According to DRM testing Gamers Nexus has been doing (Work in Progress). If you can lower the timings to DDR4-3200 CL15 or CL14, It would be close to DDR4-3600 CL16. 1.45V+ is pretty high for 24/7 daily use... @HelpfulTechWizard It looks like Metro Exodus is one of those applications / games that is NOT DRAM frequency / timing sensitive.
  19. Ah...you are using a proper adapter... Hmm...what is going on... Which version / model HD 6570 do you have? The one I'm seeing, it should have a native VGA port...
  20. DDR4-3600 CL16 should be pretty easy to run on Ryzen 5000-series. From what I heard, (all) MSi X570 and B550 motherboards are having some issues with Ryzen 5000-series at the moment, and MSi is working on a BIOS fix. If a BIOS update is available, I'd update that first. Next, try just the regular XMP / DOCP settings, but with SOC bumped up to 1.10V. I know Typhoon is recommending 1.05V, but 1.10V is quite safe (just don't exceed 1.20V).
  21. You need an ACTIVE adapter to convert / translate from the HDMI DIGITAL signal to a VGA ANALOG signal. You cannot just use a simple HDMI to VGA adapter. Something like these: These adapters won't work:
  22. Yes, it looks like the VRAM is faulty. When you get the "snowflake" artifacts, it is usually VRAM related issue....physical issue.
  23. Adding to @minibois comment regarding to the BIOS.... this motherboard has Q-Flash Plus feature. You can update the BIOS with a USB stick, and using the BIOS button on the rear I/O -- update the BIOS without CPU / RAM / GPU. How to Use Q-Flash Plus to update your BIOS:
  24. You are using the HDMI / DP ports on the back of the graphics card, and NOT on the back of the motherboard, correct? Double check the PCI-E power connectors going to the card, too. You may need to update the BIOS too, if the motherboard is old(er) stock.
  25. If you are not using the TPM security/encryption feature, then it doesn't matter....press F1.
