  1. All I know is that the speed is good. The lady from the call center went straight to this setting, we didn't do any troubleshooting. Asked me what os I have and if my mobo has gigabit. I did a few tests in a bunch of games and ping is good, no packet losses, all was good
  2. I solved the issue. Called the call center and the nice lady there guided me to a setting in windows called "Speed and Duplex". Told me to select the 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex value. It was Auto Negotiation before. Now, when doing a speedtest i reach 940 Mbps downloads and 240 upload, pretty much the same as stated in my contract. Thank you all for replying here!
  3. I see. So it could be the wire that goes from the router to my pc right? The technician looked at the wire and how it was wired up and said it was ok (he looked at the colored wires and their order). My connection is fiber optics. They came with the fiber into my home so the only odd wire would be from the router to my pc, otherwise its a fiber optic connection from the provider to my home.
  4. I tried different sites for speed test and tried download games on steam. Im getting the same speeds i had before, aprox 10MB I know i wont be getting the full 1000Mbps, but it shouldnt be just 10 MB. I will call them and see whats happening
  5. Long story short, I just got my new internet connection installed at home. Its a 1 gigabit connection, that would be 100MB download speeds. I just did a speed test and i only get 100 Mbps download and upload, like my old connection. The technician dude told me to check if my mother board has gigabit network and if it does to call the provider and see whats what. Now, i thought i had gigabit but i might be wrong. My motherboard is: ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F GAMING The rest of the specs are as follows: Ryzen
  6. Well I don't care to chage the switches so that doesn't matter for me. @seon123thank you for your post!
  7. Ive been using a Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum mechanical keyboard for a long time now. Its a good keyboard but I want to try something new. The Roccat Vulcan 120 (and 121) caught my eye, it looks apart and from what ive read its not that bad but i wanted to see what other gamers say about it. One thing that is worrying to me is how the keyboard fares after months/years of use. Do the keycaps still resemble a keycap after long time use? One other thing that i like about it is the ease of cleaning it because of how the keycaps are made. Im having a hard time cleaning
  8. Few years!? I cant see myself not playing games for a few years! But im not depressed. At least I dont think i am! I like my job, im a CNC programmer for a luxury furniture factory, currently working on 4 CNC's ... something that i enjoy doing. I have plenty of free time, i work only 8 hours a day with the occasional 9-10 hour shift every now and again. My overall life is fine. Dont think im depressed Idk i play a wide range of games i think. I dont play FPS games like call of duty warzone any more. Any
  9. The title is totally stolen from another post, elsewhere on the web This is more of a personal issue than anything else but at this point im not sure what i should do. Im 30 years old and i've been a pc gamer my entire life. I always thought that gaming will be part of my life for as long as im alive or close to it. Gaming was always my passion. Lately however, for the past year or so in fact, i noticed that my will to play games has diminished. Most noticable is the amount of games that I have started but not finished. I never did this in the p
  10. A bit late with this reply but ive been very busy and wasnt able to do much testing But, with the amount of tests i did, temps were pretty good. Never exceeding 70 degrees on the cpu or gpu. I still need to do some more prolonged tests but so far so good, i might not need a second fan on the cooler :)
  11. First ill run some tests and see how temps are atm without the second fan and depending on how it goes I will look into getting a smaller fan as you suggested. Do they come with the metal bracket to attach it to the cooler? I suspect the one that came with the 140mm fan wont fit on the smaller one ... When i do the tests i will remove the 140mm fan i placed as intake and see if there are any noteworthy changes in temperatures.
  12. Long story short, yesterday i spent almost 4 hours building my new gaming system with the following specs: Ryzen 5800X Noctua NH-D15 air cooler ASUS ROG STRIX X570 F Gaming ASUS TUF 3080 OC 32GB (16x2) 3200Mhz, CL18 Corsair Vengance RGB Pro Corsair HXi Series HX850i, 80+ Platinum, 850W BeQuiet Pure Base 500DX case The issue is with the height of the RAM. I wasnt able to place the second fan on the cooler. At this moment, the cooler has only 1 fan in the middle, the other one i moved to the front of the case. I have
  13. It's working! Idk why I thought it didn't need an update for zen3 Thank you all for your help!
  14. Yeah. It came with an utility that renames it automatically. I'm updating it atm, waiting for the bios flashback led to turn off indicating the update is complete. Here's hoping this will work
