    Analog got a reaction from Stahlmann in How can I fully delete MSI AB?   
    After uninstalling the program from Control Panel, navigate to this directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner) and delete the entire MSI Afterburner folder. Restart and you should be good to go.

    Analog got a reaction from Mark Kaine in low fps in valorant?? pls im so confused   
    If you don't have a high-refresh rate screen, why would you need to have the game run with hundreds of FPS?
     
    To answer your question, I doubt that overclocking will make that much of a difference. I mean you will certainly see a performance bump, but probably not as much as you wish. You probably will need to upgrade your processor to something that has significantly more power. What motherboard do you have?

    Analog reacted to Brien Gaffney in Pc Build V1.0   
    New on here decided id showcase my latest project. I've been interested in building my own pc for a few years now but never had the money or time, with so much work being done at home and the addition of games the past year or so like Warzone I decided the time was right... (minus trying to source a reasonably priced gpu)
     
    PC and Peripherals
    Case: Corsair icue 220t
    Psu: Corsair Cx650m
    Cooler: Corsair H80i V2
    Ram: Corsair 16gb 3000mhz (2x8gb)
    Cpu: Ryzen 3 2200g @3.85ghz
    Gpu: sahpire pulse Rx580 4Gb
    Motherboard: Aorus B450m
    Boot drive: sabrent 512gb nvme
    Storage: 1tb wd drive
     
     
    Monitor:Dell  s2421h
    Mouse: Corsair Harpoon wireless 
    Keyboard: Corsair K55 keyboard 
     
    (not a corsair fanboy but from the little knowledge I had about pcs before building it , they seemed like good quality and the peripherals were cheap second hand !)
     
    Really didn't like the color scheme of the gpu backplate so I got some heat resistant paint and primer and gave it a couple of very light coats and I'm very impressed with it. No noticeable difference in Temperatures under. I'm not too keen on the crazy RBG colors, I feel a black case and internals looks pretty clean.
    Tried to keep costs for peripherals, desk and chair at a minimum so most of it is either second hand or fixed, had an old desk lying around which came out nice with a lick of grey paint. Tried to keep the build pretty clean, tidy cables was definitely high up on the priority list, got some cable clips on amazon as well as some double sided tape and zip ties to tidy up the back of the desk and pretty happy with it. Future plans are to wire the speakers with an amp which I have ordered, figure a way of hiding the ethernet cable and maybe upgrade to a wireless keyboard. If There's anything you like/dislike about the build or have any suggestions I would really appreciate it !

    Run Geekbench 3 and see what scores you will be getting there. The difference should be significant.

    Analog got a reaction from Mateyyy in What Do You Drive?   
    The car I currently own is a 2007 Audi S6 Avant (5.2 V10 FSI 6-spd auto) and I just now realize I don't have a decent picture of it. This goes to show how much I care about it... Still, my favorite car I have ever owned is a 1994 BMW 730i (3.0L V8 5-spd auto). Picture below. Still makes me sad when I think about the day I sold it. One day I would very much like to get another one of these. This time with the V12.

    We are not talking here about what you have personally done and ahs worked, but what the best practice is. The best practice is to reinstall in order to avoid potential issues, which might not present themselves immediately.

    Analog reacted to SpiderMan in Show off your latest purchase!   
    During my lab class today, my mom called the local LEGO store to see if they got the Bonsai Tree in as they got their shipments on a Friday and they are a hot seller but they didn't have any in stock. Soo...after class today, I checked online to see if other locations had them in stock and one store did so I called the store and they had some in stock. I immediately drove up there and was able to get one, although the boxes were all damaged and at checkout, the cashier was nice enough to ask if I wanted a damaged box instead (you save 20% on the price...which costed me in redeeming points on "The Big One" later on 😔) so I did. I wanted to get The White House set as well but that particular location didn't have it in stock. 
     
    Since it was on the way home, I decided to stop at my local LEGO store as they had The White House in stock when I went this past Monday. I'm ready to pull the trigger on another LEGO set but I'm dying here as I'm waiting for double VIP points to come so I can get it. Anyway, this is what I scored today.

    Analog got a reaction from Rayzioz in Upgrading CPU, can i keep windows?   
    I Would say no. Since you are moving to an entirely different platform that has its own specific chipset drivers it is always best practice to just reinstall completely and start from scratch. Otherwise you risk running into all sort of weird issues, performance loss and BSODs. 
     
    Even if you are not upgrading, it is actually not a bad idea to reinstall Windows once in a while in order to keep everything running optimally. I personally reinstall my OS once a big new update is out.

    Analog got a reaction from Stahlmann in All In One Pc   
    There is a ribbon cable that connects to this connector that I have marked for you. The connector itself is labeled LVDS1. You will need to have a ribbon cable connect to the graphics card in order to be able to use it. Since it is a proprietary cable, and that AIO is quite old, you will probably need to search for it on ebay or other similar sites. 
     

     
    Here is another picture of how the cable is routed in a system that has already a graphics card

    Analog got a reaction from Astrogene in 360 AIO   
    Unless you have a real use for a 360mm AIO, I don't think that it will be worth the premium over a 240mm one. Reliability-wise, they are as reliable as a 120mm AIO, because they pretty much are made the same way, only difference being rad size.

    Analog got a reaction from Skynet n stuff in AORUS 8gbx2 4400mhz issues, pc won't boot up.   
    The computer is power cycling because the motherboard is not able to train the memory at that speed. You said that the motherboard is advertised as capable of memory speeds up to 5000MHz. This, however, is completely irrelevant, as that speed might have been achieved on one specific kit and in one particular config. This is why one shouldn't be paying so much attention to the marketing material. This being said, the main question at hand is whether the actual memory kit that you bought (kit part number) is present on the QVL? Even then it is necessary to consider that everything is ultimately going to depend on how good the memory controller is on your processor. The silicon lottery is very much applicable to the memory controller as well. 
     
    Please see below the only validated 4400MHz memory kits for this motherboard. Full list is here. As you can see from the list there is no 4x8GB 4400MHz config that is validated as supported. The highest rated 4x8GB config is for 4133MHz and is for ADATA memory. 
     

     
    At the bottom of the QVL there do also note the following statement:

    Adding to @Analog's point.
    It doesn't matter if your motherboard and DDR4 memory kit is rated for 4400 Mz.
    If your CPU's Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) can't handle that aggressive frequency (e.g. not like top 1% of  i9-10900K's), then you won't be able to run it.

    Analog got a reaction from 05032-Mendicant-Bias in Were you able to get a new GPU (Nvidia 3xxx/AMD 6xxx) and what you are using it for?   
    I tried to get my hands on a RTX 3080 in September, when they came out, but was out of luck. Still, managed to snag one RTX 3080 directly from a distributor in mid November. As there were very few cards available, we managed to come an understanding regarding the price and I was pre-allocated a card before the shipment had arrived.
