    Arrogath got a reaction from GOTSpectrum in Mid-week Madness Folding Sprint   
    well, I tore down my 16 core rig and rebuilt on a different motherboard, tuned voltages for stability, turned of gen 4, turned my ram down to 3200 cl16 from 3600 cl14. Hopefully this bitch will be stable, I know there's still something wrong with something in the system but I'm at my wits end so let it ride. Time to leave this folding for a few days as a stability check

    Could be bad wiring in the house, or low voltage in your area. I would avoid plugging the pc into any extension cords or power bars. If you have an active ups I would run the pc on a battery protected outlet. If any of your receptacles are running hot or burnt you should look into getting that addressed

    Your room’s breaker is most likely being overloaded, try unplugging bigger electrical items like an Xbox if you have one, maybe a TV and some things like that. And welcome to the forums, @05pietr20

    Arrogath got a reaction from SpiderMan in 120v to 240 volt transformer   
    Was trying to keep it simple and free terminology for the op, but yes that would be a 2 pole breaker, 1 for each “phase”... since 120/240 is actually just one 240v phase split in half phase isn’t really the right word, but it gets the point across.
     
    And to your point yes, the amount of wattage a given circuit can provide is finite, doesn’t matter what you transform the voltage to you still have the same power available after that point less the losses of the transformer.
     
    Power= Voltage x Current
    Voltage= Current x Resistance

    edit: Also, a single 120v 15amp circuit breakers and other equipment is only rated for 80% continuous load typically, so your circuit is only rated for 1440 watts just a friendly FYI
  7. Agree
    Arrogath reacted to SpiderMan in 120v to 240 volt transformer   
    I believe they call it a double pole circuit breaker to provide the 240 Volts AC. OP is just changing the voltage output, still will pull the same amperage. 
     
    If you need more info on how the US 120/240V North American breaker works, here's a informative video.

    Arrogath reacted to vf1000ride in HELP: Black Magic S**t Going On, Flow Rate Slowly Drops After Boot [Even with 2 pumps]   
    In between the different iterations have you taken the blocks apart or inspected the cpu/gpu blocks to make sure the fins aren't partially clogged?
     
    I had seen this same basic thing in my system earlier in the week.  My situation is I rebuilt mine and ended up with a small amount of plastic shavings in the system after making new hard lines.  The plastic passed through the larger fins in my GPU block but got hung up in the CPU where I couldn't see them.  When the fluid was fresh and had a fair amount of fine bubbles in the system the water seemed to be moving normal speed but as the air settled out it looked like my flow was slowing down.  I ended up having to open up and clean my cpu block to get the gunk out of it.  Been back to full speed since.

    so just the psu has to be on, the power cables need to be connected to the motherboard, but the computer needs to be off. You hold the back bios button until it starts flashing I believe, it's not quite a 5 count from my memory of the last time I did it. The LCD display should say BIOS flashback stage 1 and work its way through the stages until done.

    3000 series not required, this board has USB flashback and can flash the bios without any cpu installed if you're so inclined
     
     
    At the very least it should post with default settings so I would look into flashing the BIOS using the flashback utility. I saw a kit with 32gb sticks supported in the list, but not being on the qvl list just means that specific kit hasn't been tested. You may struggle to get the XMP/DOCP settings stable though, will probably have to tune things a bit

    have you flashed the bios up to the 5000 supporting version? You can download it, run the rename executable, put the newly renamed file on an empty USB drive, plug the USB into the BIOS marked port on the back of the machine, and hold the bios flash button for a bit, release and it starts flashing the new version

    edit: I forgot to add that if you can it's suggested you flash the bios while plugged into a UPS so that it doesn't get interrupted. The formula board should be okay even if it fails part way with this usb flashback tool though

    Arrogath got a reaction from Slayerking92 in NVMe will it work in my MB?   
    Can we move this to RTFM? In all seriousness though, checking your motherboard specs takes about 1 minute.
     
    B450 supports up to gen 3 x4 NVME, so no need to buy a new gen 4 drive just stick with the gen 3 drives. Samsung is the top choice for speed and quality with other more affordable drives being fairly reliable now that the tech has matured. Pretty sure the board supports 2 nvme, one through chipset and one through cpu direct lanes.

    Yes, the M.2 slots on that board support NVMe drives. 
     
    I'd personally recommend the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro for a good drive that's not too expensive. 
     
    Make sure you install it in the top most M.2 slot (M2_1) as it runs at a higher bandwidth than the second slot.

    Cap to 90FPS or 100FPS, or OC the CPU to drive more frames at higher usages, although to combat the dirty frame pacing feel you mention I'd go with an FPS CAP.

    Arrogath got a reaction from SkilledRebuilds in Cpu 100%   
    either overclock your cpu to help keep up with the gpu, or limit your frame rate to ease the load on the cpu to help with frame timing. There are a few other minor things to look at

    Is your ram running XMP?
    Is your cpu temperatures good?
    Is their some trash running in the background eating cpu resources?

    Arrogath got a reaction from Fasauceome in Is there any main retailor that sells Singular 4750G CPU's?   
    Since these were originally being sold by the tray for system integrators only your chances are slim. In my area it seems like shady resellers are the only source apart from buying a prebuilt. The question is what is your builds purpose, and will a barebones or prebuilt kit do the job. Keep in mind the processor isn’t overclocking capable as it’s a pro product
