    APasz got a reaction from Godlygamer23 in Hey all, got a slight concern regarding my PC. When I'm putting my PC under heavy load, my Phanteks Sleeved Extension Cables!   
    The connector is where there is the most resistance. More resistance = more heat.
    As long as they don't burn you, or are melting, or smell. They're perfectly fine.
    3 8pin PCIe connectors are plenty for a 3080.

    APasz reacted to WereCatf in H.264 Bitrate Equal to H.265   
    It's not quite that simple, since there are a metric fuckton of related settings other than just bitrate. If you e.g. encode a video at 8Mbps bitrate with x264 using placebo-preset, you'll get FAR higher quality than if you encoded at 8Mbps bitrate using fastest-preset -- the resulting file would be the same size, but the quality wouldn't.
     
    With the above in mind, all the various settings other than bitrate aren't the same between H.264 and H.265, so there's no way of making a full-on 1:1 comparison. Also, it all depends on the encoder itself that you're using; there are encoders that produce worse quality and there are encoders that produce better quality.

    APasz reacted to Master Disaster in HELP! USB has less capacity than stated   
    Seller is correct. 232GB for a 256GB drive is about right. The bigger the drive capacity the more space you lose.
     
    FYI it has nothing to do with the drive reserving space. It is because there are actually 2 ways of defining space on a hdd.

    APasz got a reaction from kirashi in fresh windows install without losing files or any software   
    Files can be backed up to another drive. Apps need to be reinstalled upon reinstallation of Windows.

    APasz reacted to Jetrise in HELP   
    Warzone is a huge game bud. If you have it installed on a Hard Drive, that'll likely be your bottleneck with that setup. I would suggest getting a SSD and installing it on there. See the video below demonstrating HDD vs SSD perf on Warzone.

    APasz reacted to BlueChinchillaEatingDorito in IS 32GB of ram overkill for gaming/ streaming   
    If it's just 40 extra bucks to go for 32GB, I would say why not. If you're streaming you might doing some video editing as well to post that footage onto YouTube so 32GB in that case will help a lot.

    I'd go with CPU first.

    Vanilla Skyrim SE is doable. Modded is another story.
    I gave up trying to get SKSE64 working.

    Personally haven't had any issues with NVidia drivers.

    APasz got a reaction from LogicalDrm in GPU and CPU with intergrated graphics???   
    Not sure what you mean. Most modern CPU have integrated graphics (IGPU).
    Wouldn't make any sense for a DGPU to have integrated graphics, as that's what a GPU is.
     
    You can use IGPU and a DGPU in the same system to drive extra monitors.

    APasz reacted to kirashi in Loading Video Codecs onto a Blu Ray Player   
    To the best of my knowledge from 10+ years of technology experience, no. Most DVD & BluRay players run dumbed down bare bones Java based OS that only allow signed updates from the manufacturer to be installed. Otherwise it'd be too easy for someone to modify the HDMI output to allow unprotected video output over HDMI, which they could then copy without the use of an HDMI splitter that strips the protection.

    APasz got a reaction from SirLeper in How did I install windows?   
    Apart from the BIOS fastboot feature. ^
    Windows has a fast startup feature, it's enabled by default these days though.
    You can ensure it's enabled by going to the system settings section of the power options in the control panel.

    APasz got a reaction from xFluing in Nvidia card for physx on an AMD system   
    Running AMD and NVidia drivers at the same time isn't really an issue anymore. Windows' stupid DM accounts for the majority of issues.
     
    It's possible to specify which processor will do physX work. iirc it can even be specified on a per app basis.
     
    Some games will have problems with physX and rendering being done on different cards. Only solution is to run the game and physX on the same card.

    APasz reacted to GoodBytes in 99% Cpu usage at Idle Ryzen 9 3900x   
    No.
     
    Open the command prompt or PowerShell as admin, then execute the following commands:
    PowerCfg /SETACVALUEINDEX SCHEME_CURRENT SUB_PROCESSOR IDLEDISABLE 000 PowerCfg /SETACTIVE SCHEME_CURRENT Then restart your system.
     
    I suspect the problem is that a program had fun disabling CPU idling.

    APasz got a reaction from Johnsson in Dual GPU to Dual Moniter with seperate cables.   
    2 (3, or 4) GPU's can work in a single PC and each can output to multiple monitors.
     
    Using your diagram.
    GPU 1 can't control or contribute anything on monitor 3/4.
    A game (or any application) running and displayed on monitor 1 will only use the resources of GPU 1.
    So using your example of GTAV. One instance can run on monitor 1/2 and a second can run on monitor 3/4 without affecting the first.
    The CPU may be a bottleneck here as its workload is doubled.
     
    Applications can be freely moved between all monitors at any time. Note that GPU/VRAM heavy apps might have issues.
     
    All 4 monitors will be discrete, meaning full screen apps will only fill a single screen. Both AMD and NVidia have methods of combining multiple monitors from a single GPU into a single large virtual display. Allowing a full screen app to fill multiple monitors without any special support.
    Crossfire/SLI can be used in conjunction to combine the power of multiple GPUs. Performance does not scale linearly using Crossfire/SLI. 2 GPUs will result in a -20% to 70% perf increase.
    Note that Crossfire/SLI can only be used in programs that support it.
