  1. i see! thank you so much for your help guys. ive never seen anyone mention these before.
  2. this is probably stupid, and i apologise, but i dont know where to get the pro drivers. if i go to AMDs site and follow the dropdown menus, it only lists the adrenalin drivers, which apparently arent the ones i need? the only pro drivers i can see arent for my GPU.
  3. i get constant crashes in blender, apparently i need "pro drivers" for my vega64, but i dont know what they are or where to get them? i use three vega 64s in my PC, with a 1900X CPU. for gaming, completely stable. but in blender, constant crashes. if im lucky, its just blender that crashes. this happens almost every time i try to render. but if im unlucky, i get the BSOD. i was searching my most recent error code: "split kernel error - invalid ray state". ive had this one a fair amount in the past. i found this post with the same error, by a user with the same GPU: [Solved]Vega Blend
  4. thank you, that was very useful. i have a lot of experience with desktops but little with laptops. i hadnt realised just how insane 400W is for a laptop. only just found out the 16 core XMG APEX 15 only has a 230W PSU. i might make a 400w laptop in future if i wanna go a bit nuts. but for now, id be aiming for 200W max. probably closer to 150w. 1hr battery life seems pretty typical for mid/high end gaming laptops, so ill be aiming for that in terms of battery life. the info on UPS DC power was also really useful, ill have to look into that a lot more. im pretty confident i could cut ou
  5. bit of background: im trying to make a gaming laptop out of mostly desktop parts. plan to have a max power draw of 400W. only real challenge is making desktop parts run off a battery, and making that battery behave like it would in a laptop. as far as i can tell, a laptop works kinda like a UPS; if you unplug the power, it switches over to the battery without crashing the system. if you plug it back in, the battery starts to charge while the system is running. Main thing that confuses me is why even low power desktop UPS are 10x larger than even a large laptop. why do electronics t
  6. hi again. his pc was in a hard to reach spot so he unplugged it to install SSD, he had plugged the GPU into the wrong spot and this fixed most games, however warzone is still the same as before, despite the fact the settings say its using the 1060. so still a bit lost. currently in the process of uninstalling and re installing but dont know if that will fix it.
  7. yeah ill try DDU tomorrow. he shouldnt have moved the cable just to install an ssd but ill ask him
  8. he just installed new storage. i dont see why this would have any effect on the other stuff? btw, i did something in the registry that someone recommended. this now means he has great performance when in windowed mode, but fullscreen slows him to a crawl again,
  9. my friend installed a new SSD for game storage (windows still on old drive) and now all his games run at 3-5FPS, even in menus, no matter what graphics settings are used. he has a quad core and 1060 3GB. any ideas what could cause this? before he had well over 100 fps in most games he played. is there an easy fix other than a fresh windows install?
  10. Thanks for the recommendation. From reviews they look great, but still quite a bit outside of my price range unfortunately. The "IEM"drivers are £56 for a pair(probably a bit more after shipping). I have a 3d printer, filimemt cost would be tiny. And I could use a small amount of leather for the headband and earcups. I think I might be able to do the entire project for under £100. I'm not aware of any other planar magnetic headphones quite that cheap.
  11. Thanks for the reply. I looked at moding the tr mk3s or whatever they were called but they're + 130£ before I've even modded them. Also I was quite confused by the IEM part, the dimensions are way to big to fit in someone's ear, so I assumed it must mean something else?
  12. hello. im trying to make my own headphones to get higher quality while saving money but am very lacking in experience. the best headphones ive ever used cost £10. i have found a driver that seems promising, but im worried i might have missed something important seeming as im so inexperienced. I will attach the specs bellow. id really appreciate it if someone could point out any problems the drivers might have and give me a rough idea of how much they think they're worth. I know specs aren't everything, but I hope it will at least give me a good starting point. knowing how
  13. its been a stupid long time, but thought youd be interested to know I was able to get it working by having all the old fans wires attached and then attaching just the pwm wire from the new fan. only slight problem is I need to invert the signal because PC fans read it an odd way but hey, at least it works.
  14. damn, id forgotten how expensive they used to be. now, at low capacities, SSDs are cheaper than HDDs of the same size. hope you enjoy your build dude
  15. I now understand that I need an NPN bipolar transistor (I think) and I get how they work for the most part. ive been having a bit of trouble finding information as most search results are talking about giant AC/DC converters or on the correct topic, but beyond my understanding. ive seen a lot of people demonstrating inverters in different circuits, but I wasn't able to simulate the circuits I was seeing, I had issues like "max current exceeded" and I don't know enough to solve the issues. ive attached a pic of the circuit im planning to make. it doesn't work in the sim, but would you exp
  16. As an amd user, stay the hell away from their GPUs. The hardware is pretty good value but the drivers are abysmal and have been infuriating. Amd CPUs are phenomenal though. Intel doesn't come close. A 1tb SSD should easily fit into that budget. NZgamers list seems pretty solid but I've heard the B series motherboards can be pretty terrible, so you might want to consider something a bit better. Seeming as your a bit behind on hardware, it might be worth knowing that sli and crossfire are basically dead at this point. Completely unsupported, so just stick with a single GPU.
  17. that's perfect, I cant quite get 0% because the minimum is 10% speed, but I imagine that will be close enough that I can work out if its 12v or 5v. and I can get 5v and 12v from molex. ill do some research into how to make the inverted logic thing. thank you so much for the information dude. you've probably just saved me several days of work.
  18. ahhh ok, I didn't know that. that is super helpful, thank you so much. its really nice to know what the issue is for once, most of this project has been trial and error. so in theory, all I need to do is build an inverting logic circuit that matches the signal voltage? would a multimeter work for reading the signal voltage? if it doesn't I imagine ill be able to find it somewhere like a spec sheet.
  19. thanks! the inverting logic circuit is a great suggestion. I don't fully understand what you mean by "pulled high" but I feel like I should give you some more info in case its relevant: the new fan is a DELTA that draws something like 55w. waaay to powerful for normal fan headers. so I have the positive and negative hooked up to a molex 12v and ground. then the tachometer is detached and the signal wire is hooked up to the GPU for temp control. the only way I was able to get the GPU header to accept the new fan was by leaving the old fan attached and having both fans share the PWM signal (it
  20. im trying to mod a reference vega64 with a much more powerful fan. replaced blower with new fan. wired new fans PWM wire to GPU. the fan speed changed with Radeon software fan curve BUT it was inverted. eg: as the GPU gets hotter, the fan spins slower. Radeon software wont let you go from fast to slow, so I cant just invert the fan curve to make it work. is there anyway around this like an alternative software or a registry edit or something? I would be extremely grateful for any advice or suggestions on this because ive been working on this project for months and am so close to making it work
  21. ahahaaha. nah I don't give up that easy. ill figure something out. am looking into other ways to generate a PWM signal.
  22. I cant test it because it would blow up the header from what ive been told.
  23. I was thinking the same as you with the two empty pins being the problem. im currently in the process of soldering the old fan onto the red and black only. then just tape it so it cant spin. not elegant, but all I want is the performance so eh. I considered doing the mobo pins, but im afraid id have the same problem cos a mobo header cant supply anywhere near enough power for this fan. so the power wires would still be on molex.
  24. yep. each one is 75db and eventually I may have 4 of them. that's fine, but only when im rendering. when im doing other work I need it to be much more reasonable or I cant concentrate. edit: hell, even if I was fine with it, I imagine id get a noise complaint from the neighbours ?
