  1. I've had issues before with ryzen with power plans with the 3600, have you checked that it isn't in power saver mode or something?
  2. I know that EA games like star wars squadrons and battlefront 2 don't need HDR enabled in windows. HDR looks horrible on my monitor but I didn't get it for its HDR ability.
  3. You can get a quest 2 without all the facebook stuff actually, but it'll cost ya its $800 I think for the business orientated version. Will be interesting to know if the streaming over air link is comparable to VD or better. I've heard that there is a 100mbps limit on AMD card and a 200mbps limit on the Nvidia cards. with virtual desktop only capable of 150mbps I wonder if the extra 50mbps of bandwidth will make a big difference or not. It'll also be sweet to use ASW for flight sim (I'm cheap and don't want to buy a link cable )
  4. ryzen power mode set to high performance?
  5. My usb cable that came with my printer was dodgy AF I would perhaps try a new USB cable, if that doesn't work you can and then remove the drivers and get the drivers to install again?
  6. I would probs just go the RAMPS route with octoprint I think you'll struggle with that budget personally
  7. You tried with just a single stick to boot into windows without issue?
  8. You would probably need a splitter for an xbox? I'm guessing here
  9. I guess its not as simple as that, as your CPU needs to be powerful enough to drive your GPU, there's something called being GPU bound where you would see something like 99% GPU usage this would be taking full advantage of your card. if your CPU cant give your GPU enough instructions in enough time you'll see some degradation in performance, this usually manifests itself at lower resolutions because you'll be driving higher frame rates. so you would see perhaps 100% cpu usage and 75 GPU for example. this might be useful: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digit
  10. Just looks like the chips were soldered with heat and its discoloured the pcb silkscreen?
  11. What was the old GPU? It will use whatever driver is installed, so if that was an Nvidia one it'll be the latest driver that you had installed, if you didn't have an Nvidia one, and an AMD/no gpu you would get a fairly old driver that windows should install automatically. I would just recommend downlaoding geforce expereince, easiest way of keeping ur drivers up to date And yeah your mobo and psu should be fine
  12. You should be able to change boot order, select the right boot section and it should be fine, that seems like the issue could be wrong Youll do that in the BIOS
  13. Well I'm running a 3080 with a 3600 with a 650W PSU for a couple of months now and its been fine, so take that as you may Drivers should be fine, if you do run into any issues you can use something like DDU in safe mode:https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html it'll remove traces of old drivers.
