  1. Did you use Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall the old drivers and get the latest driver from AMD?
  2. It looks so good tho :'( The sag is real. I never expected that a riser cable would damage my pci-e slots - especially BOTH of them, which is super odd. But nothing else had changed besides me switching the gpu's orientation. And it happened mid-stream off of my Plex server. hopefully MSI will be quick about getting me a replacement board. Maybe I'll spring for a 3000G just to have a backup APU :P
  3. So the reason I ask this question is a little convoluted. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 and I'm currently RMA'ing my x570 motherboard possibly due to a riser card damaging both (somehow??) my PCI-Express slots, rendering any GPU I put in there unusable. So I had no screen on boot up at all and had no idea if I was even booting into Windows (I had no debug LED lights, however). I tried using the HDMI out on my motherboard and got no signal. But when I had just bought my RX 5700 last week and used DDU to uninstall the drivers, I had to reboot the system and was able to get into windows using the HDMI ou
  4. I second Linus's suggestion with having an audio booth. I was hoping there had been one last year, but I'm super curious to try out cheap vs expensive and closed-backed vs open-backed headphones.
  5. Before I upgraded to my Ryzen 5 3600, I bought a 32gb kit of Trident Z RAM. I had a Gigabyte Aorus z370 motherboard at the time, and the RGB synced perfectly using RGB Fusion. But when I finally upgraded to my MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi board with Ryzen, the RGB is stuck on Rainbow Wave and it is not detected by the MSI Mystic Light software. Nor can I find it under my Corsair software that controls my AIO (not sure if this is normal or not, the cooler was installed the same time as the mobo/cpu) But I also tried installing the G.Skill app, and I can't change any settings there either. The RAM
  6. Okay this is going to be a long post... System: i3 8350K (overclocked to 4.2ghz) Gigabyte z370 gaming 5 motherboard 16x2 Trident Z 3200mhz RAM (XMP enabled) Sapphire Nitro+ 580 video card Cooler Master single rad AIO 1x Samsung NVME m.2 250gb (with OS) 1x Samsung SSD 500gb 2x HDD 1x DVD ROM It started shortly after installing my Cooler Master AIO a couple weeks ago (and possibly after a minor Windows update), I got a couple of BSOD's that I am unsure of the exact error but i think one was a nls.sys or something - both errors were of
  7. Thanks for the help everyone. I'll go with the 2x 16gb 3200. It makes the most sense. I'm so excited for my new Ryzen build!
  8. Do you think it lacks XMP support? I do use that for my current sticks. I've never manually adjusted RAM before and I'm a bit intimidated by it.
  9. Do you think there isn't much issue then with memory kits as there was "back in the day"? As long as I stick with the same brand and timings, I could probably buy more sticks later without issue?
  10. Maybe that means that it doesn't have XMP support then? I'll be honest: I like XMP - I've never actually manually adjusted my RAM before. lol
  11. Newegg has the G.Skill Trident Neo 3600 with CAS of 18 for $189. But I wonder how it would run in my intel system for the next few months if it's specifically meant for Ryzen.
  12. I'm falling down a rabbit hole of RAM options. Right now I have an intel CPU but I will be upgrading to a Ryzen 5 3600 soon so I need to take RAM into consideration. I'm looking at 2 sets in particular: G.Skill TridentZ 4x 8gb 3600 CAS 19 $189 (sale) G.Skill TridentZ 2x 16gb 3200 CAS 16 $169 (sale) I know Ryzen likes 3600 better, but considering I'll be running in dual channel, I wonder if I'll take a performance hit with 4 sticks as opposed to 2. I'll be getting a Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite if that matters. My use case leans more towards video editing/renderin
  13. Lol right I've been wanting to ask him about that statistic as well "how many are between the ages of 30-35? And how many of those are women?" I'm probably at 1% lol
