  1. Budget (including currency): No budget Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: TF2, RTX Minecraft, more. I only just upgraded my GPU so I'm still starting to test the waters of PC gaming. Other workload: lots of code compiling. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): My power supply is 850 watts and I really don't want to have to upgrade it. I have a very nice kit of DDR4 memory that I want to make full use
  2. It is mounted traditionally. My case has a some sort of metal cable cover thing. I've attached a pic (not my build) and squared it in red. The heat sink of the gpu rests right against that. I actually had to flex my motherboard up a few millimeters to get the pcie clip to snap into place.
  3. I'm worried my whole case is going to heat up and cause all kinds of problems. Thanks in advance!
  4. That's kind of what I've come to understand, but also the response I was afraid of the most. I do want a zen 3 processor, but yadda yadda stock shortages. Do you guys think amd will manufacture more zen 3 processors? I'm starting to worry they're already out of date.
  5. I bought some b-die ram not long ago, and it was a little bit of an impulse purchase. With ddr5 coming out the purchase is seeming less and less like a good idea. I do want/need to upgrade my cpu sometime though. Both ryzen and intel cpus are compelling to me for different reasons. Which one is going to let me enjoy the most benefits from my b die ram? Thanks!
  6. I clicked a thing in MSI Afterburner and the fan really picked up. My GPU is now idling at about 35C. However the fan is constantly running at 50% or more (though I just found out I can tweak the fan curve in afterburner), which is audible. Am I going to burn the fan out or something? Is there a way to configure my GPU's fan behavior in something other than afterburner, or is this the right way to go about it?
  7. I actually did manage to find the gpu temp stat, it turns out I accidentally "hid" it in HWiNFO64. I've DDU's this driver many times now, and even done some windows reinstalls so I don't think that's going to help at this point. I've played TF2 a bit and my GPU temperature has hardly budged at all. It seems to fluctuate between 62 and 66, doesn't matter if my computer is idle or playing TF2. However, the fan speed is fluctuating (as you can see), so maybe its actually the temp fluctuating and the fan is doing its job of keeping the target temp of 66C?
  8. My fan doesn't know what it wants to do, when I play. It just kinda oscilates. HWiNFO64 was showing a simple "GPU temp" stat, but then it disappeared on me and I haven't been able to get it back. I've said it once and I'll say it again, my computer is cursed...
  9. Power supply is a corsair ax850, and the case is a fractal design meshify c. I have 2 fans on the top and 3 fans on the front. I am doing absolutely nothing at the moment. I have my web browser open, steam, telegram, discord, keepass, speccy and the snipping tool. I just rebooted my computer (since it just crashed...)
  10. When my rx vega 56 works, I have no problems with TF2 and everything is fine and dandy. Unfortunately, my rx vega 56 doesn't work. Here's the specs of my system. I know my motherboard is extra cursed because the sound card on it is broken, and I had to glue a fan onto the VRM heat spreader to have it actually do its job.
  11. Last time I had the rx 560 installed my CPU wasn't overclocked at all. I do agree there is something wrong with my system. I have no idea what. It's just cursed. The whole machine has been cursed and has been since day one. I don't know what to even blame it on, everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. It's all bad luck, every step of the way. There's nothing I can do, I can't win at this point. I've given up trying to reason with this machine. I want to upgrade to a new ryzen processor and hopefully start anew, but that won't be happening until the heat death of the universe so I'm just s
  12. I prefer to have the graphics settings on high, but I need to set everything to medium or so to get 60-90 fps.
  13. My current graphics card is an amd rx vega 56 and it is an absolute unadulterated piece of trash. What a waste of sand, this thing is probably worth more in raw materials than whatever monstrosity this is that AMD/MSI shat out. I am absolutely livid that this thing keeps crashing while playing TF2. Sometimes hard crashes, sometimes driver crashes. I have an AMD rx 560 as well, which does not crash whatsoever. Unfortunately the chip on my toaster oven probably has more processing power than this card does, so I really have to crank down the graphics settings for TF2 to be playable.
