  1. Remember, its an AF 1600, so not the normal 14nm 1600 AE. Its the "newer" 12nm one, so its basically a r5 2600 with lower speeds. From what i know, anything above a ryzen 5 1600 AE should be enough to stream at least 720p 60fps.
  2. So im trying to stream The Forest right now, and its not going good. I keep getting warnings from streamlabs about frames being skipped etc. It says its caused by high cpu usage or a bad encoder. Ive so far only come to one conclusion, its NOT my cpu that cant handle it. According to my Radeon Overlay, i have an average cpu usage of around 30-50% while playing and streaming. Streamlabs also got its own counter which says around 6-15% cpu usage. I dont know if what im saying IS true, or what i should do about it. Im guessing its caused by my gpu being 100% like all the time, and therefor is mes
  3. That one would probably give you more bandwidth, but still really low for an external gpu. If you still decide to buy this, you should know that you also need an external PSU to power it.
  4. Im guessing you are planning on putting an external GPU in it for "better" performance. Id say it isnt worth it, since that is first of all a PCIe x1, going through a single USB (probably gen 3) to a PCIe x16. That isnt enough bandwidth for an external GPU, so you wont be getting better performance.
  5. Yeah, ive done this, and it went not so good. I were lucky enough to have a bios switch on my GPU, and a CPU with integrated grapichs too, so i could recover it to the normal bios. It happend a few years ago, and it still have it in my system. Id also recommend that @sabapro17 dont flash anything, or even try to flash. And im also pretty sure you cant flash a 570 to a 580 (might be wrong, but ive never heard of anyone doing that). 470 -> 570 and 480 -> 580 should work tho.
  6. Thats not for vertical gpu mounting. Its just a cover, so you dont have a huge hole in the back of the case. It can be moved back so you get more room for removing or installing PCIe devices.
  7. So ive had a bit of problems with xbox game bar over the last 3 years, where even if i checked the "record mic default", it wouldnt actually record my mic. But now it seems to be working, idk how. But i got another problem instead: Whenever i switch focus to another program, it will constantly spam me with a little notification on the side of the screen. I can jump between discord and firefox and ill get like 5 of those notifications in a row. Can i turn it off? Without turning off all notifications?
  8. I got a replacement Unit of the original Pro X headset. I sent it back to them, and then just got a brand new one as it seemed to be a factory failure. I still have them, and ive had no problems with them so far, over the last year that ive had them. I recently saw their g733 lightspeed being released, and ive been thinking about getting those instead, as they are wireless, still got a BLUE voice microphone, lightweight and comfy. They have also released a wireless edition of the G pro x headset too, so if you want the ones i got, you also got a wireless option. So the g733 would b
  9. Im guessing you plugged in your screen into the motherboard instead of the 1070? Cause it seems like its running on the integrated HD 620 grapichs on the cpu instead of the 1070. Check the cables in the back of the PC. EDIT: saw that you stated the GPU was utilized 50-60% while gaming. Probably not running of the integrated grapichs then.
  10. So i posted a thread here a week ago or so about what i should do to get a good OC on my Ryzen 5 1600 AF. I managed to OC it to about 4.0 GHz at around 1.2875v (Down from 1.3v). Anything over 4.0 so 4.1, 4.2 etc just crashes the pc. Is it caused by the Silicon, or just not enough power? Should i try 1.35v or just stay at 4 GHz? Specs if you need them: Arctic Freezer 34 esports B450-A pro max CX500M RX570
  11. That is a Molex connector. Those are OLD and are no longer used by most things. Cheap or old cases CAN still have fans that are powered by those. You would need to replace the fan for a newer one (would recommend this over anything else) or buy an adapter to either a 3 pin fan connector or sata (think it will run full rpm either way).
  12. So im currently trying to overclock my Ryzen 5 1600 AF on a MSI b450-A pro max. And its going OK so far. Ive been into the BIOS, and i set the frequency to about 3.9 and core voltage up to 1.3(maybe 1.35). It booted up fine, but when i run AIDA64 to check stability, it still stays around 3.6 as its stock boost clock. HWmonitor also states that the core voltage was max around 1.2 even if i set it to 1.3 in the BIOS. I dont really know why it doesnt boost up to the 3.9 i set it to. You may say it went back to stock settings and i didnt save or something like that. But according to HWmonitor, the
  13. Thats a bit too toasty for a 280mm AIO. You sure you used thermal paste? (I dont know the AIO got some on it out of the box). Maybe you didnt mount it to the CPU properly. Is the Pump running? Also a little tip: You can use CTRL + double click on the pictures to resize them, so they dont take up the entire page.
  14. So i found a "rare" GPU for sale named ARES 3. The seller states its rare and only 500 was ever produced. He also says that it is suuper powerful and will beat most of the modern benchmarks. https://www.tradera.com/item/341372/435656967/ares-3-legendarisk-dual-gpu- What GPU is under the hood tho? Why was it ever produced? Is it really rare?
