  1. ryzen power mode set to high performance?
  2. 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?
  3. I would probs just go the RAMPS route with octoprint I think you'll struggle with that budget personally
  4. You tried with just a single stick to boot into windows without issue?
  5. You would probably need a splitter for an xbox? I'm guessing here
  6. 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
  7. Just looks like the chips were soldered with heat and its discoloured the pcb silkscreen?
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Was looking forward to flying in VR on Flight sim, does not seem like the performance is good enough even on low for everything :( They need to come out with some performance optimisation patches I reckon, worried that wont be until dx12 is implemented though :/ apparently sometimes 2021, I think it'll conincide with the console release in the summer hopefully :)

  12. I've got into nightcity now and the perf on the 3080 isn't the greatest. its not using my CPU that much ~60% usage on a 3600 with GPU usage about 70... which is a shame, I've dropeed it down to high with DLSS on perf mode and ultra RT
  13. I mean it still runs on the old consoles, I would imagine it is fine. Maybe driving around night city at speed may cause hiccups?
