  1. I have the same problem with a 2700 (non X), PBO doesnt work on the B550 so I just did an all core OC to 4.1
  2. I like the P600S for sure Pro 2 is a bit too massive I think this might be the winner! Only drawback is that it's the most expensive (not by too much though) I still like the Silent Base 601/801 especially as i've realised that I can remove the front centre panel easily... Thanks for the suggestions!
  3. Pure base 500 could work but front looks restrictive, not sure I want to cut holes in it unless I have to... Silent base 601/801 with solid panel looks good though, could probably brute force enough airflow
  4. It doesnt have a solid side panel, it's got glass?
  5. The only airflow orientated case I can think of with solid panels is the Fractal Design S2 Meshify: Are there any other good ones? (Can be ATX or MATX)
  6. I'm thinking about getting a nice chair because my current one (Pretty cheap) is worn out... however with Covid, it's hard to actually visit a place and sit in some... so i'm going to roll the dice. I like the Humanscale Freedom Hi Back but I was wondering if anyone had any postive/negative experiences and/or suggestions on a good seat?
  7. I'm completely new to Ryzen, I have been trying to find the infinity fabric setting in the bios but I cant see it listed in the manual or by going through the menus? Is it just a 3000 series option or have I just missed it?
  8. Im coming from 240hz and I definately dont mind TN panels as I play allot of esports titles, that said I do much prefer the image of my 4K IPS. Infact the only thing thats stopping me pulling the trigger right now is the 120hz spec.... although I think im going to give it a shot.
  9. Thanks for the really informative reply! I guess the main reason for me moving to ultra-wide is that i'm going back to uni to study an MBA and an ultrawide will take up less space than my 32" IPS 4K 60hz and 25" TN 1080p 240hz while still being able to support two or three windows to run different programs/compare documents and webpages and play games/esports titles in my down time I'm a little nervous about making the transition because I fully appreciate your points about going back to 16:9 and it's the reason why I never adopted it... however I feel like the producti
  10. A friend of mine is selling his AW3418DW 34" and im debating on whether to buy it, has technolegy moved on allot in the last 3 years? The other monitor I was thinking of buying (new) was the AOC CU34G2X but it's not IPS, doesnt have native G-sync and it's not on the Nivida list of approved monitors (although I know allot of unsupported monitors do work), however it is 144hz. Has anyone got real experience of 120hz vs 144hz? For ultrawide owners, is there any advice from ownership, like Is VA a good experience Wished you'd gotten a higher refresh ..
  11. What cooler are you running? Bear in mind mines direct die cooled with liquid metal to get 5ghz 80C in P95, whats your AVX offset as you probably wont get 5ghz in p95 without a custom loop?
  12. LLC is on and it stays at 1.24-1.28v VCORE even when its set on manual not adaptive.
  13. Well mine seems much happier now, while running at 5.1ghz I couldnt change the cache ratio past 45x and now it's happy at 50x. I think it was running at 1.24-1.28v VCORE this whole time.
  14. Agree on the p95, i've noticed that allot of people on this forum don't read questions (this is not aimed at you). debaurs manual 5ghz 24/7 is a preset in the bios, you can select it and it automatically configures the BIOS
  15. That's not what im asking, im asking why I am having to use XTU to manually adjust VCORE rather than what has been set in the BIOS.
  16. I have been using debaurs manual 5ghz 24/7 preset in my maximus xi gene, the adaptive one has always been unstable and I just assumed it was because my 9900K wasnt very good. I was preparing my system for sale and running prime95 to ensure everything was stable and good for the new owner.... then I noticed than Intels XTU/CPU-Z/CPUID HW Monitor where all showing different values for the VCORE and none of them were showing 1.35v for it (which is the preset). So I used XTU to push an extra 0.1v into the VCORE and it's sitting at 80C direct die water cooled while running p
  17. Why? Worst case scenario is that the motherboard won't post with the 1st gen cpu
  18. Exactly and I would need to buy a decent ITX board too Good point, i'll make sure to note which bios versions work if I do decide to go with a 1st gen
  19. I've recieved some DMs and spoken to some enthusiasts who've tested it and 1st gen works on their boards Just as an FYI in my original question I stated "I know officially it's not supported" I was trying to find people who have tested it or have read articles confirming one way or the other.
  20. Fair point, I was hoping to use B550 or X570 as they support better memory tuning although it's interesting that you note the X570-E supports gen 1, i'll research that
  21. whoa, no need to be so passive aggressive ! https://www.techquila.co.in/1st-gen-ryzen-7-1800x-x570-motherboard/ https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/news/amd-ryzen-first-gen-cpu-run-on-x570-motherboard https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/news/gigabyte-first-gen-ryzen-af-cpus-x570-motherboards 1800X working on an X570 for example, I was hoping to compare notes with people who have experience with it or were knowledgable on the subject I want to sell my ATX water cooled system now as I don't want to transport it to University as i'm going back t
  22. I want to transition from my 9900K rig to a Zen 3 ITX PC, can I use a Ryzen 1700 as a stop gap before I can buy a 4800X/4900X in September? I know officially it's not supported but i've read that some people have got it working, specifically it's on an ROG Strix B550-I
  23. Do/can they do any of the encoding work or is that all on the CPU/GPU?
  24. Okay I thought so, I just had some bad advice which didn't make sense RE GPU encoding How about capture cards, i'm confused as to what they actually do after looking at a few?
  25. I just wanted some advice to get it clear in my own mind to make sure i'm not wasting money. CPU encoding - Is the most wasteful as highest impact on the game played/other streaming processes GPU encoding - how much impact does that have on CPU/GPU usage? NVENC...etc Capture card - I find this most confusing, there seems to be a few different types, does this take load off the CPU if used in a single PC setup? Is it still worth buying a completely seperate PC for streaming?
