  1. I removed the top-panel, and temperatures were great, while gaming they stayed within the 70's, which is actually pretty great... although it does absolutely nullify any sound dampening this case has, as all the grumbling and other annoying frequencies will now travel through the top part of the case... I might want to return it in the end I guess.
  2. Alright, I know that Ryzen is supposed to run hot, plus my noise-dampened case is a bit of a hotbox. Still though, I expect it to at least work without throttling, yet idle temps are in the 50's Celsius and web browsing in the 60's Celsius. Gaming whoever is when it goes into the 80s Celsius, this seems a little too hot, especially since it straight up crashes after about 10 minutes of gameplay. I also expect it to at least work, considering the parts I've got in my PC: - Ryzen 9 5900X on an Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240MM mounted on top - 2x intake Arctic P12 RGB fans - 1
  3. I'm worried that I can't top-mount this AIO in my upcoming build, since I have pretty chunky RAM (G.skill Ripjaws) on my Asus Tuf Gaming Plus X570 board. I can't really find anyway to make sure that they'll fit. Does anyone have this case / know how to make sure there's enough clearance?
  4. I recently noticed that my handpalm would get sore after using Aimlab (where I have to move the mouse a ton up and down), while when I was playing CS (where you aim mainly horizontally) I had no such issue. I decided to rub my fingers across the surface, and noticed that it feels a lot rougher vertically - and due to that a lot worse than my Omen 300. Is that just how the stitching is done? I can't find anything else about this online
  5. So my 32 inch 1440p 144hz monitor has flickering with FreeSync on. This happens in every FPS range between 1-144hz. Here's the issue shown in a video (note: it might be hard to notice due to the compression, but especially in the second half of the video it should be decently visible): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVijPkl7nes My specs: Ryzen 7 3700X RX 5700 XT 32GB ram @ 3600Mhz
  6. Well... the mousepad I've been using is this one: https://www.amazon.de/-/nl/gp/product/B07RVBZ7H9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Now that you say it, there is something peculiar about my mousepad - in the area which I use my mouse, so the right-side, it's quite a bit shinier than at the other side. When I touch it it feels a bit smoother actually. Not sure what to make of that, besides heavy usage or poor mousepad quality. How would I be able to tell that the mousepad could potentially be of poor quality?
  7. Yeah, that might be the road I got to take. If I'd just formally put it up for sale, and then, if asked, provide an honest explanation of how exactly it runs.
  8. True, that sounds like a great middle road. I'll just put it up for an attractive price, with clear warnings that it's loud AF, unless you underclock it by a bit (at which point it performs like a completely silent and cool RX 5700) using for example MSI Afterburner. Which is fortunately even provided in the form of a CD for those who care!
  9. Yup... Really unfortunate too, since the card AMD made is fantastic, and MSI's variant looks pretty nice, but it just performs poorly.
  10. Apologies for my stupid question, but what do you mean by leaking?
  11. So hear me out – I bought an MSI MECH OC RX 5700 XT about a year ago. It has served me well, although at -50% power draw. Unfortunately this particular model is quite awful. Temperatures reach into the high 80’s (Celsius), and the fans sound like a plane right about to take off. Not extremely pleasant, which is why I underclocked it. Since some new spicy GPU’s are on the horizon, I’m looking to upgrade to one of those. One of the main reasons is that I wouldn’t hate some more performance. On top of that, it’d be great to have hardware ray-tracing support, since the consoles will have the same.
  12. Sorry for the super late response - but thanks for tagging me, and happy they fixed it. Really appreciate it!
  13. seems like it's a widespread issue, but people just aren't caught onto it just yet.
  14. Relieved, annoyed and unsurprised that this is an AMD driver specific issue. I had already reported it, just in case. Currently running on 20.8.3. For me it also affect the default Windows video viewer, whatever that may be. I have already uninstalled the drivers, which did indeed fix the issue, but that's obviously not really a solution at all. I'll report back after a bit of troubleshooting.
