  1. NVMe = PCIe m.2. it is the same thing, however, it signifies the form factor of the ssd. PCIe ssd's that are not NVMe (not m.2 form factor) also exist. so saying NVMe is easier than saying PCIe m.2 saying pcie m.2 also shows the difference in sata and pcie ssd's.
  2. each cpu is different (even if it is the same model). some cpu can undervolt a lot if you get lucky, while some may not undervolt at all. what you can do is decrease it a little and test if it still works, then decrease it more and test again. keep going until it stops working. once it doesnt work anymore, increase it more than the lowest you could go (to make sure it is still stable) .
  3. depends on what you are doing. if this is just a gaming machine, the yes, the 5600x is overkill. the 3600 will do just fine in most games. but, if you are doing things like video editing or streaming, or other intensive tasks, then the 5600x is really good.
  4. can we get a feature to save certain posts as kinda like a 'read later' type of thing? I like how reddit has a save feature so if you need to reference something in the future or show somebody something, its quick and easy to find.
  5. i dont understand why your cpu is drawing so much current on idle. that seems like an actual issue. raising the power limit is not fixing the issue
  6. because even more people will be interested in buying a new GPU so the number of people buying increases. so more demand in an already constrained market. also, given that the 3060 has so much vram, miners will pay 2x or even 3x for this kind of GPU. demand will fly through the roof and past the edge of teh universe
  7. make sure all your drivers and ryzen master are up to date. then also update your motherboard bios.
  8. the state of GPUs will be like this for at least another 3-6 months. the release of the 3060 will only make it worse. if you can wait, then wait. but if it is really urgent and you really cannot wait, then go ahead and buy whatever you can find in stock.
  9. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ i mean a lot of the times it depends on the game. certain resolutions might not be allowed because it would mess up any FOV settings. what game is this for?
  10. im not 100% sure but i think games can manage the monitor resolution themselves independently of windows settings. setting a resolution in windows does not force the game to run at that same resolution unless you also set it to run at that new one in the game settings.
  11. did you try restarting the computer? what happens if you do that?
  12. when you dual boot i think the boot manager is replaced with grub. when you try and uninstall linux and you remove grub as well, it will cause issues as the bootloader is not reverted to the windows boot manager. not sure how to fix
  13. afaik there is no way to change this permanently but you can go to the task manager, then go to the details tab, right click the process and click on 'set affinity'. this setting is not saved so you will need to do it every time.
  14. i don't think that is normal. sure, over time colors will drift slightly so you will need to calibrate frequently for sensitive work, but in normal use cases it shouldn't drift that noticeably.
  15. nvidia's page lists the requirement as 750 but I would go minimum 800-850.
  16. I set up my computer to mine ethereum using the phoenix miner on the ethermine pool. I know i am supposed to get 22MH/s on my card but for some reason there is something wrong. the reported speed and actual speed has a major difference. something is definetely wrong but I don't know what. here is the bat file i am using to run the miner: setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 PhoenixMiner.exe -pool ssl://us1.ethermine.org:5555 -wal 0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xx
  17. That just makes your price/stock level worse. that much power in small factor psu is either rare even normally or very expensive. you will probably end up paying 2x or even 3x the normal price right now for something like that
  18. HDTVTest has lots of really high quality reviews. he tests pretty much everything you need to know.
  19. its generally recommended to get at least 20-30% more than the minimum requirements. since you are getting very high end parts, I would recommend getting 800+ but because of all the shortages they are either absurdly expensive or out of stock. if possible, wait for things to normalize before buying.
  20. quick question.. now that i've been using nicehas for a short while, I got bitcoin from that. if I want to send it to my paypal crypto wallet, how can I do that?
  21. do you know if it is possible to use the excavator miner outside of nicehash? excavator seems to give me slightly more performance.
  22. I would highly recommend watching HardwareUnboxed reviews for monitors. they go really in depth and tell you everything you need to know. they test everything about the monitor and give you recommendations. They are also based in Australia so they might give some additional info.
