  1. I haven't bothered trying. I'm still waiting for a new GPU first. (much higher priority than altering the rest of the cooling right now) As for the connection, there should be an adapter somewhere, it's just a matter of finding it, and determining if it will mess up the loop or not.
  2. I can't remember all of them, but they should be listed pretty well in this video...
  3. So, I just finished improving my RAM overclock, and decided to look for the Smart Access Memory option for future use. I am using an RX 5700XT. S.A.M. is nowhere to be seen in the BIOS. Resizable BAR however is, and can be enabled even with a non-RX6000 GPU. Problem is, I don't own any of the games that have readily noticeable differences in performance, so I'm not sure if it is actually working. Anyone have a free program or utility that can tell me if it's operating or not?
  4. Depends on the GPU... 4k generally works better with 1080p though. It might. Can't say for certain as I'm a 1080p single-monitor guy right now.
  5. I suggest them because they are VA panels, which have superior contrast. (in a dark room, the difference between black and white on a VA with only HDR400 or less is equivalent to an HDR1000 IPS in any illumination) IPS is really only better for viewing angles and response times, and not by a significant margin. It's all up to you. I'm not holding a gun to your head... Yet... Any time my dude.
  6. Just like with a regular dual 1440p, run the games at regular 1440p resolution on half the screen area. Wouldn't be tough to do. I would recommend not paying so much for a 240Hz model at this time, unless you're doing ultra-competitive e-sports titles as your primary gaming. Anything 120Hz or higher would satisfy your needs if not doing those games. (other than esports, very few games can get to those extreme framerates on anything less than very high-end gaming rigs) As I already mentioned, a CHG70 monitor would probably be your best bet. https://www.newegg.com/dark-b
  7. Very. Not necessarily, but buying cheaper is likely to either give you issues with getting it running at all, or have such poor performance that it's not worth the price. (I've seen as much as 25% performance loss using poor quality RAM with Ryzen 2000)
  8. Not my top pick. My top pick would be a curved VA panel from Samsung. (I prefer the better blacks, and IPS has rather grey blacks in a dark room, kinda like TN) It requires an external tool, but is easy to do. He probably didn't download the color profile from MSI's website. (listed as a driver) Most people just plug-and-play their monitor, so most monitors only have the manual for download, but MSI includes color profiles for the monitors. These profiles correct the gamma and slight oversaturation on the monitors. It's also an extremely minor difference if you're not using it
  9. LPX is notorious for having issues with Ryzen 1000/2000, but it's not 100%. More like 40% of the time it'll just refuse to work at all. Also depends on the motherboard. An A320 is the worst case scenario for RAM compatibility in any CPU that it supports.
  10. Make sure and quote or @ me... I'm always interested in decent memory overclocks.
  11. Yes, there is about a 5% difference in performance between 14-14-14 and 16-18-18. Don't bother with 3600 at all, as you would only have about a 20% chance of getting it to run properly on a Ryzen 2600 if it was really good memory, (like what I have now) and a much better motherboard than what you have.
  12. With the 2600, the FlareX I linked will work perfectly at the 3200 XMP setting. "Speed" isn't limited to the MT/s rating. 4800 with crap timings is easily capable of being worse performing than 3200 with good timings.
  13. That is likely. The DDR5 modules that will be available at that time will be quite poor performance and/or quality however. It's generally not very good first year because it's early in the production cycle, and they require some time to get good quality chips out of new manufacturing techniques. It's been this way with every new DDR version. Good DDR2 outperformed DDR3 for the first year, and good DDR3 outperformed DDR4 for the first year. (I didn't really care about the DDR to DDR2 transition when it happened, so specifics would have to come from elsewhere on that one) The Te
