  1. I'm upgrading from my 5 year old seasonic m12ii 520 bronze to coolermaster MWE GOLD 650w. Is this a good upgrade? i was about to buy a 2070 super, but the PSU requirements is above 600w. And now that 3000 series was already announced, I'm thinking on going with 3000 series and upgrading my PSU to MWE Gold 650 due to its price. did i made a right choice? I'm expecting to receive the PSU tomorrow. Thanks for your inputs!
  2. Will these both cards work on my PC? I'm currently planning on replacing my faulty GPU and i really need one right now. PC Specs: Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 MotherBoard: Gigabyte AB350m Gaming 3 RAM: Team Elite TForce Delta RGB 2x8 16GB 3200mhz CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 LED Turbo Graphic Card: Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1060 6G Powersupply: Seasonic M12II Evo 520w HHD: 2 Western Digital Blue 1TB SSD: Wester Digital Blue 3D NAND 500GB Monitor: Asus VG248QE 144HZ
  3. we have the same brand. try to look for the app in the gigabyte website. download and install it to your PC and look for the app that manages your BIOS. that app from Gigabyte has it all apps you need to update drivers, etc. look for "BIOS" if i'm not mistaken.
  4. try to flash (a current or 1 increment update to your bios version) bios to your mobo using an app. usually the manufacturer tends to offer an app that you can use to update your bios. Try to look for your current bios version and download it from the webpage of your mobo. Flash it and see if it will work. be sure that you have the same bios version (which you can check on the app) and flash it correctly. Follow the instructions carefully. i have a gigabyte mobo and it has an app that i used to flash my bios in order to use a ram stick. what's your mobo anyway?
  5. can anyone please provide me the science behind with monitor overclocking? what components are working and if does the voltage increases drstically when you overclock your monitor, lets say from 60hz to 75hz. Thanks bunch!
  6. That what they called "Silicon Lottery". Since not all chips are made equally, some will get a higher clock speed with decent voltage, but some will get a certain limit on clock speed just like yours. If you can't increase more on your chip, then you should stick to what you have now. IMO, i don't see any difference when i overclock this chip, which is why until now, i'm only using stock speed and i only overclock my RAM to 2700 (from 2400). and it seems that this chip is totally not designed to be OC'd, except if you will get the X variant or a much newer generation.
  7. Reset your BIOS setting and try to change CPU Freq by 3.6 and leave voltage to stock. IF it works, change the CPU Freq again until it requires a voltage increase. Ideally, you dont want to jump to that Freq and Voltage without doing tests, since not all chips are made equally.
  8. And if not configured manually, Windows will automatically set your speeds based on the slowest ram stick you have. We suggest that to avoid compatibility issues, you should buy identical kit or with same speed, size, capacity, everything. On my signature below, which is my current setup, i have two kits of 2x8 Gskills but different on unit, one is Ripjaws and the other one is Aegis. Both kits have matching speeds, capacity, latency, etc, but i didn't experience any issue at all, since both them run on dual channel, not quad.
  9. @@chi_chi_ here's mine, but i settled at default clock speeds because i didn't noticed any changes while i'm gaming. and i can still run games at reasonable settings. If you really want to OC your chip, you can settle on 3.8hgz with 1.270v, which i used for a month before going back to stock speeds.
  10. I hope there is an option to use that 1060 card as the render device for streaming, then your 1080 will be your main driver.
  11. Thanks man. Im not sure i already visited his channel before since i done some research first. I just can't accept the tearing while playing the game. I'm so accustomed to high frame rate games that i can easily notice when there is a slight diff with the gameplay. Thanks again and see you in the Tower XD
  12. Hi Everyone! I'm currently tweaking my settings for best stream results while playing Destiny 2. But i'm having some problems on the said game. I noticed that whenever i tried the windowmode boarderless option for Slobs (since the game is not allowed to be stream on full screen mode), I am certainly seeing that the game is having some screen tearing whenever i turn on left and right while looking on a rock in Dreaming City. Base on my specs below, i can easily run this game on 144hz with custom settings, and my monitor is 144hz, meaning there should be no screen tearing at all. The d
  13. try to run the previous RAM sticks, then go to bios. Reset your xmp setting by turning it off. after that, shutdown your PC and install the new sticks. go to bios and set your xmp again. If it does not work, try to reset your bios setting.
  14. did you inserted your new sticks to your mobo, together with the old one? if you removed the old stick and replaced it, check your xmp for the new sticks if it is enabled. what kit did you purchase? 4x4 or 2x8?
  15. im not sure about your bios, but you should look for an option to change the profile of your RAM.
  16. go to bios and check if your RAM is being detected. If yes, check your XMP profile if it is enabled.
  17. You should have 16GB of RAM if you bought 2x8 kit, but the sticks you listed above are only single 8gb. You clearly mixed two types of RAM. If you bought it on the same store, return it and buy a kit that has two sticks on it. make sure to check first your mobo's compatibility sheet before buying RAM. Most RAMs can run even if it is not compatible to you mobo, but you should buy two identical sticks to avoid any issues. Based on your case, your PC will not totally boot because the sticks you have are not the same or has different specs (timings, CAS, latency, etc.) If y
  18. 1. You should still be able to run high freq RAM as long as it is supported by your mobo. XMP will do that for you. 2. As long as your mobo supports that kit (2x4 or 4x4), the go with high freq and low cas. 3. Yes 4. Yes 5. A big YES 6. Check your mobo's RAM compatibilty sheet before buying RAM. Most RAMs can run on every mobo, but you should still rely on your mobo's compatibilty sheet. Bonus: If you have a lot of cash to burn, look for 4x4 16GB Kit and call it a day. Google Chrome will love you for that.
  19. If that is the case, then you should really save up your money and buy a much reasonable upgrade, like new series of ryzen or intel. The downside is that you will need to replace your exisiting mobo and ram, but compare that to the performance that you will be getting, i think its much better than instead of just upgrading one item. Dont go to the path that we've gone. most of the people here rushed their builds, even paying a full retail price of newly released parts. But i tell you now, two to three years after you bought it, the price will go down and you'll just regret your dec
  20. If you can drop-by to that store, go and test it instead of trusting the seller that "This works fine". There are alot of buyers that got scammed because of the sweet talk of the seller. If you don't want to do that, then save your cash and wait for better deals. This is just my opinion, but if you can still play on you system, then stay on it just a bit. I dont see any sense on upgrading your system if you can still use it normally. Tune down some settings to achieve high frame rates for now, while waiting for a better deal.
  21. That's actually scary. Esp that these kind of stuff are prone to scams and whatnot. I suggest that before you even try to buy used or refurbished stuff, you need to make sure that it works first. Go to the shop and let them tested it in front of you. you'll never know online sellers if they are legit or not. Try to test the GPU to other PC, like a local computer shop. If the thing works, there might be a problem with your mobo. IF the GPU is the problem, then look for ways to return it and ask for warranty (if any) or replacement.
  22. How did you tested out the GPU before purchasing it?
  23. And here i am, thinking that 65c is too hot to use. lol. thanks for the post!
  24. Try sorting the memory, from highest to lowest usage. Then check out which apps uses more RAM. Here's my tips on how you should work on your RAM clean-up. 1. Uninstall any apps that you're not using. Most of these are automatically running after you booted your PC 2. In relation with 1, go to Start Up tab of your task manager and disable any apps that you think should not start-up unless it is necessary. Like adobe apps or game launchers. 3. Check your anti-virus apps. these apps should not work on high RAM usage, except when they are doing an idle scan. I think you're using
