    Ero reacted to Mark Kaine in How to undervolt my GPU.   
    no problem... I thought that might could be an issue, yeah. But did you try to actually press ctrl + F while in Afterburner, im not actually sure voltage control needs to be unlocked for the curve editor to work, although it is likely. 
     
    Otherwise yeah, power limiting should achieve almost the same.

    The cooler itself isn't that amazing but 80-83 C under load is fine on graphics cards. Replacing the paste is easily enough and could lower temps a bit, so could adjusting the fan curve in MSI Afterburner. I'd not mess with voltages on an unknown brand card without a reference point from someone. Again, those temps are completely safe.

    you need to unlock voltage control in Afterburner, then press ctrl + F that opens the curve.  try doing something like this. Start at around 900mv or so... 
     
    and then you need to test it with something like heaven benchmark. 
     
    if it isn't stable adjust the curve accordingly - that may be a bit tricky but generally it's really easy and brings temps down a lot. 
     
    I recently did it for the first time, performance actually went up! cause temps are lower it'll keep boost longer (indefinitely it would seem) 
     

     
    RTX 3070, keeps boost at around 1950 MHz, temps around 55c, voltage is very low around 750mv, you'll probably end up around 900mv though, which is still fine, but you have to experiment and find that out with your card obviously.

    if you get a very old batch of it, yes... but current production shouldn't

    Ero reacted to dhannemon13 in Color Accuracy for Adapter.   
    Simply put, you'd want to do signal converting as small as possible, or even not at all, to prevent quality loss.
    DVI-D is a digital signal-only, so go for HDMI. You'd just convert it from digital to analog if you go for DVI-D to VGA, which is ridiculous to do anyway lol

    Don't use VGA. Use a simple DVI to HDMI adapter.
  7. Agree
    Ero got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Power supply   
    Rx 5600 xt have lower power consumption than rx 580 but your current gpu is not that bad, I recommend waiting for next gen gpu to launch. 60 and 50 class cards should be in market at near Christmas and have good stock as well.

    PSU Tier List 4.0 rev. 14.6
    Last Update: 29-11-2020
     
    Gray - EoL / obsolete. Generally not recommended for purchase since it's going to be pre-owned, refurbished or old stock.
    Green - small form-factor (gold and blue colors are disregarded due to scarcity of SFX PSUs)
    Gold - best units in the tier (includes requirements for blue color in tier A)
    Blue - quiet operation under moderate load (see details in the spreadsheet)
     
    See spreadsheet for changelog, methodology, detailed description of colors, sources, notes on grayed-out units including issues like GPU incompatibility or quality and performance issues, and other additional info.

    For a desktop drive you'll need a USB HDD Enclosure since it will need an external power brick to power the drive but yes, it will work fine.

    This type typically works only for 2.5" drives, you need to make sure to get one that supports 3.5" ones if that's what you have. They'll have an additional power supply you need to plug in to the wall. USB2 or 3 doesn't matter.

    Clear CMOS. If else, follow this.
     
    The machine does power up, but my screen remains black (no POST).
    Make sure your BIOS version is compatible with the CPU generation you're trying to run in your motherboard, you can consult the manual or the manufacturer's website about this. Check if EVERY power cable is connected. Auxiliary power connectors included. Make sure the cable coming from your monitor is attached securely to the graphics card. Also make sure it is securely attached to the monitor itself. Make sure your PSU is powerful enough to power your complete system. Make sure your monitor works by testing it on a different computer. If you have both a dedicated GPU and an iGPU, try your monitor on both the outputs on the graphics cards as well as on the motherboard. Make sure all connectors and cables are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. Make sure your RAM, CPU and GPU are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. If the motherboard you're using has debug LEDs, check the error code and consult the motherboard manual to see what it means. If you have a debug speaker connected to the motherboard, note the beep sequence and consult the motherboard manual or this thread to see what it means. Try clearing your CMOS. Try booting your computer with only a motherboard, CPU and one stick of RAM attached (if you don't have an iGPU, plug in your GPU as well ). Make sure your GPU works (if you have a dedicated one), try it in another computer. Make sure your RAM works, try it another computer. Make sure the RAM is compatible with your CPU and your motherboard.  
    If the PC still doesn't POST after this, create a new thread and, as explained here, post IN FULL DETAIL about your problem. Make sure you include the following:
    System configuration Troubleshooting steps you already did Any additional information that may be relevant.

    That model number (M471B5273DH0-CH9) only shows me a 2x4GB kit when searched on Amazon, Ebay, or even google. I believe this is either an edited photo or not really that memory (Swapped stick or something similar). The rest of the specs do check out though: 1333MHz, CAS 9, 1.5v DDR3L memory.

    My guess is that the 10600 non "s" is a mistype as 10600s is just for SoDIMM, meaning laptop version, which is the proper denotation for it.
    If you're not sure exactly what to get, this is the supported upgrade. Crucial is also a good place to look for compatible memory.

  23. Agree
    Ero reacted to LateLesley in Upgrading ram.   
    From what I can find, the "S" just denotes So-Dimm. It would be different if it was F or R or U (F and R are registered memory, not compatible, U I'm not sure if it denotes desktop size, not sure. ). SO the S in this case is just denoting the form factor. 
     
    Where you have to be careful, is if they have letters in other places. You can get low power and ultra low power dimms, but these are usually denoted as PC3L or PC3U or sometimes DDR3L or DDR3U. These run at different voltages, and may not be compatible with the chipset. So when in doubt, stick to the same type.
     
    From what I can find, you might be compatible with DDR3L, but I wouldn't swear to it. It seems you can put in up to 16GB, in two 8GB sticks, and I think they must be done in pairs. It won't work with just one stick, from what I read. 
     
    Its always tricky getting compatible ram. It would be nice if Apple were like motherboard manufacturers, and gave compatibility lists, but hey, Apple! Good Luck.

    I forgot one item missing from the original post:
    For DisplayPort or USB-C to VGA adapters, there do exist adapters that can do up to 340 MHz. I have a Plugable usbc-vga adapter which can convert DisplayPort 1.2 (2 lanes of HBR2) to VGA (up to 330 MHz). I don't know why they only advertise 1920×1200@60Hz. For some reason, macOS limits the adapter to 160 MHz. Maybe Apple meant to limit some specific adapter but managed to limit all of them (I made a patch to remove that limit for macOS Intel graphics drivers).
     
    Many of the adapters are discussed at

    The simplest method is to use the DVI input of your monitor:
    Use a passive HDMI to DVI cable or adapter. DVI uses the same signals as HDMI.
     
    If you want to use the DisplayPort input of your monitor then:
    There exist HDMI 1.4 to DisplayPort active adapters (1440p60, 4K30). Your monitor is only 1080p so HDMI 1.4 is good enough. This info is in the original post.
    There also exists really expensive HDMI 2.0 to DisplayPort active adapters (4K60). This info is missing from the "HDMI Source to DisplayPort Display" section if the original post (adapters from SIIG and gofanco https://insights.club-3d.com/thread/hdmi-2-0-to-displayport-1-2-2/6/ ) .
     
    DisplayPort to HDMI adapters also exist. This is mentioned in the original post. I don't know why you say "displayport adapter in first page one way its possible and another way its not" since the original post doe mention that adapters exist for both directions.
     
    The rest of this post is for other things (unrelated to your problem) that are missing from the original post:
     
    If you have a dual link DVI monitor (your monitor is only 1080p so it is only single link):
    You can chain a DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI adapter to a HDMI 1.4 to DisplayPort adapter to convert single link HDMI (340 MHz) to dual link DVI (330 MHz). This adapter chaining method may be unreliable - some OSs (Ubuntu) may handle it better than others (macOS) because of some plug detect issue?
    I think the "HDMI Source to DVI Display" section of the original post should be updated with this info.
     
    If you have a dual link output only (old graphics card) and a DisplayPort monitor:
    There exists the Gefen Dual Link DVI to Mini DP Converter. This is missing from the original post.
     
    For DisplayPort to DisplayPort:
    An MST Hub can convert different DisplayPort lane counts (1,2,4) and link rates (RBR, HBR, HBR2, HBR3) from source to sink (much like a PCIe switch can convert PCIe  3.0 x4 to PCIe 2.0 or 1.0 x16).
    There now exists DisplayPort 1.4 MST hubs (Club 3D, Delock, and soon StarTech) that can accept Display Stream Compression input and transmit that to output or decompress it for non DSC supporting displays.  https://insights.club-3d.com/thread/displayport-1-4-mst-hub/
    MST hubs can also support multiple displays (but macOS can only use one display from a hub - the rest are mirrored).
    The original post doesn't mention MST. Other things not mentioned:
    The DisplayPort 1.2 standard can be found on the internet (but isn't supposed to be?)
    The DSC spec is freely available from the VESA free standard website. It contains code that you can use to see how visually lossless the algorithm is.
     
    Other things to update in the original post:
    "Thunderbolt 3 Source to DisplayPort Display": Missing mention of DisplayPort 1.3, DisplayPort 1.4 support since Titan Ridge. "DisplayPort Source to Thunderbolt 3 Display": A Thunderbolt 3 add-in (such as GC-TITAN RIDGE or GC-ALPINE RIDGE) card can be used to convert DisplayPort to Thunderbolt 3 if you want to connect a Thunderbolt display. If the add-in card is not connected by PCIe to your computer, then you won't be able to use the extra functionality of the display that requires PCIe tunnelling (brightness control, camera, USB audio, FireWire, Ethernet, etc.) For some unknown reason, The Apple Thunderbolt Display (Thunderbolt 1) doesn't work from a GC-TITAN RIDGE (but does work from any Titan Ridge of a Mac). "DisplayPort Source to USB Type-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode Display": this can be done with the above Thunderbolt add-in card method. There also exists PCIe cards from Delock and SUNIX. And there are external adapters such as the Wacom Link Plus (but not the Wacom Link). https://hardforum.com/threads/use-usb-c-monitor-without-usb-c.1911817/page-2 Component Video ? Maybe this goes under VGA since they are both analog. Or it doesn't matter since it's old. Also in the VGA category could be the old Apple 15 pin connector which is mostly just VGA but in a wider two row D-SUB connector. Before EDID, Apple used a 3 pin sense line scheme to differentiate different connected displays. The pins were connected together (or not) with wires or diodes and grounded or not for 512 different possible circuits producing 45 different results though maybe only 17 were ever used (one of them being "no-connect"). There were old Mac to VGA display adapters with dip switches to select one of those results to make the old Mac think the VGA display was, for example, an Apple 2 Page Mono display, or RGB 19 inch display, etc. Many of these displays only supported a single refresh rate (they were not multi-sync).
