  1. Unfortunately, that's likely. Are you still within the return period for your RAM? If you need 32gb, you're better off getting a 2x16 kit.
  2. so does mine, but it also depends on the type of RAM your using and its impact on the memory controller, as WereCat mentions. Check your motherboard's QVL, you should be able to find it on the website.
  3. I ran into the same issue with my Ryzen system. It turns out my motherboard has a "daisy chain" configuration, which means it's designed to pump more current into the primary 2 DIMM slots so that the user to achieve higher RAM overclocks. The downside is that the second two DIMM slots don't get as much current, so are unlikely to run at XMP frequencies. I would look into whether your motherboard has the same config. Hopefully your second kit is still within the return period so that you can get your money back.
  4. So, I still have much to learn about stocks, but one thing is clear: their pipeline is very strong. Next-gen consoles, increased EPYC adoption, 5000 series this year and 5nm in 2021, and their re-emergence as a strong GPU competitor; there's much to look forward to.
  5. same price? I'd say GTX 1660ti: newer architecture, better a-sync compute support and faster memory.
  6. Hey guys, Does anyone see a problem with the tube routing in this pic? I had to do it this way to get better RAM slot clearance. I could flip the rad around as well, but I'm too lazy atm. Thanks
  7. Thanks! Yeah, I guess I'd like to keep it under $300 CAD. I'm definitely not wasting money on an ultra high-end board ever again!
  8. I have a Crosshair VII hero, which I was hoping would last me quite a while. Unfortunately, I diagnosed my recent and frequent BSODs to a bad DIMM slot and I'm ready to scrap it for something new with PCI 4.0. I have a 2600x and plan to get a 5800X.
  9. I see. Thank you, that will help with my shopping
  10. Perfect. Will x570 and b550 boards support my 2600x until I get a new chip? I figure I'll buy a new board soon to fix my current DIMM slot issue. Thanks
  11. I just discovered one of the DIMM slots on my motherboard is bad. I figure I'd treat myself to AMD 5000 and a new board. Am I correct in assuming there's no new chipset coming out when the new CPUs launch next month? It's just x570 and b550? Thanks
  12. That looks so uncomfortable. Seriously, guys, I know it's expensive, but Herman Miller and Steelcase really are the way to go.
  13. If only they could also make the MS store worth using from the technical standpoint. It is an absolute nightmare to download games off of it.
  14. Wait till Ryzen 4000 is announced and released. Then, decide whether to buy a new 4600 or a discounted 3600. Also, what motherboard do you have? If it's a decent b450 or x470, you should be fine for new-gen Ryzen.
  15. How's the ergochair 2? The fact that the seat isn't mesh and the cushion rests on a hard bottom concerns me in terms of long-term comfort.
