  1. Yes different models may come with higher clock speeds, better coolers etc, but performance difference isnt very noticable if you stick with the top end brands. If the card got a bad quality, such as a bad cooling setup, then performance may be lost due to heat, and noise is increased, but thats about it.
  2. Bro, if a PSU doesnt have enough PCIe cables, then you shouldnt try and add more with adapters and stuff like that. It most likely wont be able to power them. Just like @Vishera said above. Also, if a card got 1x6 and 1x8 pin power input, it must be for a reason. You cant just plug in the 1x6 and think the card will still be able to get enough power from just that one. Plus that 6 - 8 pin adapter wont really work unless it got both 6 pin power cables attached. A 6 pin alone only have 6 pins, not 8, where are the last 2 pins suppose to get their power from? (the last 2 pins MAY in s
  3. So i booted up Battlefield V for the first time in a while, and it ran amazing on Ultra for the first 30-40 min s, then this happened: What could be the cause? You can clearly see my overlay too, so we know the card didnt overheat (it actually stayed around 75-80c). Everything seems ok to me at least. I tried changing the graphics but it gave me the same results on low as on ultra. R5 1600 AF 2x8 3200Mhz RX 590
  4. Well yesterday, before i even repasted it, i could simply just run it with ONLY the drivers installed (Dont like adrenalin). Now after the repaste, if i run it with ONLY the drivers or even with Adrenalin, the fans spin up too much to quickly and never really stop spinning. So i dont understand what made that difference in hardware fan curves by just replacing the thermal paste? Maybe i should just get some top tier thermal paste and redo it in hopes of better temps. Now, i did just try and use the adrenalin program (eww), and i set a custom fan curve and it works! Now i perso
  5. So i reapplied the old thermal paste on my new xfx rx 590 fatboy. And the temps are kinda the same as before, but the fans ramp up to like 3000rpm, compared to the MAX 2200rpm previously. While it could make sense that the card is actually getting hotter, and the fans just spin up to keep it at that 80c mark, i seriously doubt that is actually the case here. After i close the game and the card settles down at the idle 30c, the fans would still be at like 2800rpm. Why wont it scale down with the temperature? The fans doesnt go down to normal speeds even if the card is at 30c idle, UNLESS i let
  6. So as lucky as i am, i managed to get myself a almost BRAND new xfx rx 590 fatboy from a friend for like $220. I think he bought it brand new in late 2019 or early 2020, used it for about half a year and later switched to a used 1070TI, and now i got it. I think its an AMAZING deal, especially in the current GPU market. Tho he stated that it had some sort of overheating problem, where it would be loud AF and sometimes completely shut his PC off while gaming. Now, i read online that A LOT of people claimed that they also had problems with their fatboy 590s. But personally, i havent
  7. Nope. Tho i fixed Windows 10 about 6-7 hours ago, and so far its very stable. No more random shutdowns or driver crashes. Guess it will eventually come back tho, as more files gets saved to the drive.
  8. So i just changed my GPU from my dying rx480 to my friends rx590, which isnt much of an upgrade, but all i really just wanted was a stable system, especially since my rx 480 would crash the drivers non-stop all the time. Anyways, i plugged the RX 590 into my system and it worked awesome the first hour or so. Then the system died and i the "CPU" led lit up on the motherboard. Now it HAS done that before, when i had a 1050TI and my previous rx 480 in it. A simple restart would fix it. These reboots doesnt happen very often, maybe 2 times per year. Now, it just did it again. BUT it now
  9. Im assuming you are buying it online, could you send us the the store link? Maybe it says something in the description or somewhere else. But as @Grand Admiral Thrawn previously said, if a device is released with android 10, i seriously doubt any store would go out of their way to open and update each device to the new version available. Thats the buyers job.
  10. 8GB of ram should be enough for 1-6 players with 16 render distance. The CPU should also be powerful enough when it comes to rendering new chunks, tho jumping between dimensions CAN bring a few sec of lag. A SSD is always great too. There shouldnt be any type of problem running a minecraft server on this setup. GL
  11. Check if this helps: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/off-topic/25/149411/how-do-i-turn-off-the-message-physx-cpu-at-the-to/
  12. No way the actual GPU is at 120c. It shouldve shut itself down before it even hit 96-100c. Are you sure you mounted the cooler correctly when you changed your thermal paste? Is the heatsink itself clean from dust and other stuff?
  13. And why would you need to do that? Most modern CPUs (even in laptops) downclock when certain temperatures are reached in order to make sure it doesnt die. In extreme cases the laptop just shut itself down. What laptop is it?
  14. Well after a bit of thinking, ive come to a little "conclusion". I think im just gonna try and repaste it and also replace the old and dusty thermal pads for the VRMs. Ive seen numerous posts about new thermal pads for the VRM helping the cards stability and its die temps (dont know how new VRM pads help with the die temp but worth a try). If that doesnt work i think im going to reflash it and see if a vbios refresh helps with my undervolt crashes. Ill just need to figure out how thicc the new thermal pads has to be.
  15. I have the Corsair Graphite 760T with two 140mm fans in the front in pull. 2x 140mm fans in the top for push. 1x 140mm back for push. 1x 120mm in the bottom for pull. And no temp difference with side panel on vs off. Ive already deshrouded the GPU as stated in the original post. Got 2x 120mm NZXT fans on it rn running at a constant 1400rpm. Only thing that this helped with was noise, as the OG fans would run at 3000rpm at 85c, while these hold out at 85c 1400rpm.
