    That is not a symptom of SSD failure though. I never seen a SSD failure that caused device to not turn on, your issue is something else. I am leaning towards lack of CPU/MEM stability.

    Check Windows Event Viewer log for any errors regarding NVCP.
    Also drivers you download from Nvidia website is a DCH driver. What is a DCH driver?
    If you want installer with bundled NVCP you need to download a Standard driver. You can use NVCleanstall for that.

    or just manually remove -DCH from the download link.

    Your CPU, and MOBO do not support Quad.  Answer is a hard no.

    Id go with 2x16, most compatible - as you add dimms you add more problems with Ryzen imho.  Especially if you OC

    Dual-channel is not the same thing as the number of RAM-slots your mobo has. Yes, you can put RAM in all four slots, it'll still run in a dual-channel mode.

    Tan3l6 reacted to Alboy1975 in dyson sphere programme - disabled guy, could almost cry, a game I can actually play   
    Had to write this somewhere.  I'm a disabled guy (wheelchair user, can use only one hand) and games have progressively become harder and harder for me to play.  I like games such as factorio and satisfactory, but because of controls i can barely play them, but not now, Dyson sphere programme is on the scene.  It has point and click (aswd has been bane of my life, especially combined with moving camera,, but not with this game) i could almost hug the developers.  It is just a fantastic game.
    I'm a middle aged bloke who can remember  being able to compete, play equally, in the age of the sinclair zx81/commodore 64, but as technology has evolved gaming has become less accessible to me.  Please check out the game and give the developers recognition for making an accessible game.
    Just wanted to put in positive word

    Tan3l6 reacted to Mateyyy in Why CPU IHS aren't made out of copper insteed of aluminum ?   
    It's nickel plated copper, both for Intel and AMD CPUs, as far as I'm aware.
    Edit: Actually, to further comment on this -- if IHSes were made out of aluminium, you wouldn't be seeing people use liquid metal for the TIM on CPUs. Well, not that that's a very common use case for LM, but still, you can do it. 
    Thermal Grizzly does mention this as a valid use case for their Conductonaut TIM (which is liquid metal): https://www.thermal-grizzly.com/en/products/26-conductonaut-en
    Additionally, as mentioned by @Electronics Wizardy above, if you were to lap the IHS on a modern CPU (which is common practice in the overclocking community), you'd eventually get through the nickel plating and the bare copper would be visible.

    Tan3l6 reacted to RejZoR in Why CPU IHS aren't made out of copper insteed of aluminum ?   
    Just because it's silver/grey, it doesn't mean it's aluminium 😛 IHS are always copper with nickel platting.

    Tan3l6 reacted to Eigenvektor in Is 8gb of V-RAM good enough for 4k and 1440p gaming?   
    Should be fine. As @Tan3l6 said, in the worst case you might have to lower texture resolution in future games. But 16 GB is probably overkill for a GPU that's supposed to last 2-3 years. If games require it in 3+ years and you get a new GPU anyway, you paid for something you never needed/used.
    I can't predict the future, of course. It's entirely possible games are all going to require more than 8 GB in a year, but it's fairly unlikely since developers typically target the majority of PC owners and/or consoles.

    Tan3l6 reacted to BiG StroOnZ in Intel Core i9-11900(k) + i7-11700(k/kf) 8c16t Rocket Lake Desktop CPU Benchmarks and Pricing Leaked: (Update #8)   
    An early ES Chip of the Rocket Lake i9-11900 CPU with 1.8 GHz Clocks has been tested on the Z490 Platform. The processor is a very early engineering sample that has been tested on the Intel 400-series board platform (which more or less confirms that 11th Gen CPUs will be backward compatible on existing LGA 1200 socket motherboards). This particular chip, the Core i9-11900 is the lower TDP variation of the Core i9-11900K; It features 8 cores, 16 threads and will feature clock speeds rated at 1.8 GHz base, 4.4 GHz boost (1-core), and 3.8 GHz (all-core boost). IPC Gains are looking promising for 11th Gen based on these leaks. 
    Source 1: https://wccftech.com/intel-core-i9-11900-8-core-rocket-lake-desktop-cpu-benchmarks-leak-out/
    Source 2: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/11900k-engineering-sample-cpu-z
    Rocket Lake is starting to look more promising with every leak, IMO. Looking at the numbers, and doing some quick napkin math: with a small 9% clock speed bump (from 4.4GHz to 4.8GHz) simulating the i9-11900k, the Rocket Lake chip goes from 582 to 635 points; making the Rocket Lake chip 8.8% faster compared to the Comet Lake i9-10900k (but with 9.4% slower/lower clocks). If we push the clocks on the i9-11900 to the "expected" 5.3GHz mark (of the k variant), bringing clock speed parity between it and the 10th Gen i9-10900k Comet Lake Chip. We now have a score in the 701 point range, making it nearly 20% faster than Comet Lake (10th Gen) clock for clock. Showing solid IPC gains with the 11th Gen Rocket Lake CPUs. Now obviously it is best to wait until launch to see if these results can be confirmed by independent reviews. So as always, and especially being that the source is WCCFTech; take this information with a grain of salt and remain skeptical until Q1 of 2021 (when launch for 11th Gen Rocket Lake is supposed to occur).

    As a reference here are some recent Ryzen 7 5800X results in the same benchmark. After looking through a decent amount of them, I would say at worst it is a tie between the 5800X and 11700k, at best the 11700k is slightly ahead on average.

    Fun update to this thread  ~
    Intel's new Rocket Lake-S processor has been pushed to 6.9GHz using LN2 cooling and RAM clocked to 6666.66MHz:
    A mysterious Intel Rocket Lake-S processor has been overclocked to an incredible rate of 6.923 GHz with the help of plenty of liquid nitrogen and probably a Gigabyte Z590 Aorus motherboard. A couple of video clips of the feat have been posted online, which also reveal the RAM speeding along at a more than devilish 6,666 MHz.
    An Intel Rocket Lake-S CPU with 8 cores and 16 threads has recently surfaced in an overclocking video (this processor should either be the Core i9-11900K or the Core i7-11700K), being pushed to 6.923 GHz operating frequency, as showcased via a CPU-Z screen-grabbed from the video. It can be seen from the CPU-Z that the overclocked CPU at 6.9 GHz supports instruction sets not available to Intel's current lineup of desktop CPUs, but that will be supported by Rocket Lake-S: namely, SHA and AVX512F. Likewise, the cache sizes correspond to the expected changes for Intel's Rocket Lake-S. The overclocked CPU was paired with overclocked DDR4 memory as well, which was brought up to 6,666 MHz, buoyed by a crispy 1.830 V. Motherboard information is scarce, but it's speculated that it's a Gigabyte Z590 Aorus motherboard.
