  1. Tried that, both from afterburner and wattman and fans keep running at 100% anyway.
  2. Pc specs: -Ryzen 5 2600 -Gygabite b450m-DS3H -HyperX 2x4GB 3000Mhz cl15 (running at 2666Mhz) -Corsair VS550 -Kingston 120Gb SSD -Seagate barracuda 500Gb HDD -Sapphire pulse RX 580 8Gb Hello everyone, so I have recently built a pc for a friend and it ran alright with an rx 460 for about a month. He recently decided to get a Sapphire pulse Rx 580 8g and the card also ran alright for about 4-5 days, but two days ago he turns on his pc and the fans begin ramping up for no reason from being completely still (0 rpm mode is activated). Then I went to his place
  3. Probably your ram. Try disabling xmp for now or maybe selecting other profiles. You may have to set the timings manually if the rated speed doesn't work with xmp.
  4. Okay so I updated the BIOS to the latest version, the BSODs stopped but demanding games would crash (GTA V), while benchmarks ran perfectly). I tried a few things and nothing seemed to work, it would crash within 5-10 minutes. I enabled the 2nd XMP profile instead of the first, with RAM running at 2666Mhz and the game stopped crashing (my friend played for a few hours without crashing after that). So, unless other problems occurr, it's fair to assume that the RAM simply can't keep up with 3000Mhz and had to be downclocked.
  5. On second thoughts, it appears that installing the latest chipset drivers from the motherboard's vendor website actually installs older drivers. So I will install the latest drivers from AMD's website instead and then proceed to update the BIOS (for some reason, a note on gigabyte's website warns users to update the chipset before updating the BIOS).
  6. Yes but I will make sure again. Even if this was the problem we should just be getting poor performance from the game, not random BSODs, I think. Besides, the GPU was working just fine in another friend's system a few days ago. It's the new model with the grey label.
  7. I built a PC for my friend today and it was running really well and smooth until it crashed a couple times with "System service exception" error or "KERNEL_AUTOBOOST_INVALID_LOCK_RELEASE". I read online that this can be caused by faulty video drivers so I uninstalled them with DDU and reinstalled the proper ones from the radeon website. It ran smoothly for about 3 hours and while we were playing GTA online my friend had his PC crash with this error again (twice, the second time after setting ultra settings on a different game). I installed all the updates from windows, all the updated drivers
  8. So currently the 1600 is only 18€ cheaper than the 2600 so I would prefer the latter at this point. I have watched some YouTube benchmarks and the i3 seems to keep up even with a R5 2600, hence my question.
  9. So I am going to build a gaming pc for a friend of mine in a couple weeks, his budget is around 1000-1200€ and I'm already set on everything except the cpu-mobo. My primary choice would be the i3 8100, but I'm also really enticed by the idea of making him purchase a ryzen 5 2600 for about 50€ more, the thing is an i5 8400 would be around that price tag too. The guy wants to play stuff like battlefield 1 and CoD online, so I thought more CPU horsepower might benefit him. This would be paired with an rx 580, freesync monitor, 16 Gb of ram, ssd and hdd. What do you guys think, is the ryzen idea w
  10. Thank you, I'll see if the psu cover can be removed but I'm pretty sure it is soldered. I should see if I can change just the fan in the gpu cooler but at this point I might just go ahead and get an accelero II since I'd have to void the warranty anyway. Thank you for your tips, very helpful!
  11. Yes, that's indeed my card. I know the cooler on it isn't the best, I bought it back in February because it was a good deal at the time. I wanted to avoid replacing the cooler or the thermal paste not to void the warranty, so do you think the fans in the case would be completely useless?
  12. I uploaded a picture of the inside of my case, the specs are: asus h81-m mobo, i7 4790, gtx 1060 6g (Palit StormX), corsair Vs 650W and a sharkoon tg5 case. The 3 fans in the front are intake and the rear one is an exhaust fan, the two fans on the cpu cooler are in a push pull config. Now, my CPU temps are pretty fine (67c during intel stress test with 30+ ambient temp), but my gpu temps are a little too high. It is undervolted to 1V and overclocked to 2000 Mhz on the core and +400Mhz on the memory, it reaches temps of 84c while playing Hellblade and 78c while playing PubG. The top of my case
  13. Perhaps you could find an i7 4790 (non k), it shouldn't cost a lot more than the i5. I have it with a gtx 1060 6g and it runs any game just fine. For instance, Pubg which is pretty cpu intensive runs between 60 and 80 fps with high settings, with a little overclock on my 1060.
  14. Yes I do use Adobe premiere and handbrake. Occasionally OBS for streaming/registering clips but I don't think that really matters.
  15. What is the best consumer CPU for video editing between Intel's and Amd's latest lineups? Do more cores give an advantage in video editing? Is it true that ryzen is the best for video editing?
