    Don't listen to music in the shower but I never go to sleep without ambient music on.

    Do you have caps on your internet service? To me it looks something like that more than anything else?

    What's your RAM like? Dual channel or single?

    Stockholmes got a reaction from Hymenopus_Coronatus in Defective Rtx3070 Founders Edition?   
    You could try asking the scalper for the receipt, which you should have asked in the first place to be completely honest with you. For exactly this reason. Or you could try asking the AIB partner (unless it's a FE card, which I guess it is if you asked nvidia) for warranty.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from Mr Jeffer in Ryzen 5 3600 bottleneck an RTX Rog Strix 3070?   
    One way is to check the performance tab in task manager, it shows you both CPU & GPU utilization among other things.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from RaZeyYaron in GPU not using full power usage while gaming   
    I think your CPU is also a bottleneck. Don't know else other than the aforementioned PSU/Mobo that could be the problem unfortunately. But the CPU shouldn't bottleneck that hard I don't think.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from SeanTwig in I bought an AMD 6800XT that runs worse than my GTX 1080. Am I going nuts?   
    Judging from your specs I think your RAM might be bottlenecking you by a huge margin. Is it running in dual channel mode? Either way, that configuration of 24GB is not optimal at all. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the cause of your problems.
     
    E: You could try running with only 16 GB and see if that gives you better fps?

    Stockholmes got a reaction from sohaieb in Fatal issue after re-assembling my PC   
    It sounds to me too that your mobo is a goner. It probably didn't kill other parts in your system, though you never know. You should probably try contacting ASUS and ask if they can give you a replacement mobo? Probably have to pay for that though if it even is possible. Shitty situation, it being a prebuilt system and all. It probably wasn't a good idea to clean your whole system with that contact cleaner stuff, but what's done is done. 
     
    E: Just checked the product pages and they do say that it can be used on computers so I don't know, that should be safe then? Could it be the screws in wrong places? Or maybe you've missed some wire or put it in a wrong place?

    Stockholmes got a reaction from xg32 in RAM Speed and Latency - Can it Improve Performance?   
    I think everything else is on point but going from single channel to dual channel could be as much as 20% faster.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from v0id in GPU Hybrid Troubleshooting   
    It could be that the thermal paste has dried up. Weird though that your card only goes to upper 60's from lower 50's if that's the case, I would think it would go higher. Anyway, if it's not going higher than that I wouldn't worry (yet). It might be a good idea to replace the thermal paste if it does. Or maybe replace it now, even.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from Fasauceome in Graphics Card says 0 RPM   
    That's while idle, right? Newer GPU's turn their fans down to 0% when there is no load on them.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from MadAnt250 in Should i upgrade 1070TI   
    Depends on how much money you have to burn, if you can game comfortably with the 1070ti I would hold off from upgrading @1080p, at least for now. You just have to ask yourself is 700 worth the FPS gain to you.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from Wictorian in Which is Scarier? Aliens or No Aliens   
    Wrong. Yahweh has nothing to do with Allah. Muslims did copy a lot of the Old Testament for their "holy" book but they're not the same God by any definition. Allah is a liar for one, and that it says in the Quran. In the Old Testament God says that He does not lie. It's kind of funny actually, would you believe someone who told you they were a liar? And not just anybody either, but "God" Himself. A liar God. Apparently around 2 billion people do. And then they blow themselves and their children up in the name of said "God", among other things. Curiously enough, it says in the Bible that the father of all lies is Satan himself. I don't know if you can draw any conclusions from that. I sure can, when you remember that if there's a God, there can only be one, right? So who's right, Yahweh or Allah? Or maybe you don't believe in either one.

    So, if aliens really are visiting here how do they do it? How do you travel faster than the speed of light? I think that's pretty fascinating to think about.

    Aliens are actually already here, there's plenty of proof on youtube :D. Just have to search for it!

    Stockholmes got a reaction from Dardeyn in What is going on with rx 570 8gb strix price?   
    I still don't understand how there can be such a price hike of the old cards. I mean, everybody had their old hardware before the new graphics cards launched, so they had a GPU already. They didn't need to buy a new (old) card. Don't tell me that *everybody* sold their old GPU in anticipation of the new cards. Where is the price hike coming from and why does it only seem to affect the video cards? Is it because of covid or what? Not enough GPU's being produced? But why was there no problem just before the new cards hit then? I just can't wrap my head around it. Feels like some sort of GPU-panic to me, almost like the tulip mania.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from ACEHACK in 5 Years Later, Same ($900) Budget: How much have ultrabooks improved?   
    Wow, that's actually pretty sad how little ultrabooks seem to have evolved in 5 years in the same price range. You're going to basically just get a better processor for a grand. That sucks. If I were you, I'd probably try to get one of the Ryzen APU's. Their integrated graphics are pretty OK from what I've glanced. Though if I remember right, Intel has also upped their game with the iGPU with their new laptop processors.

    Stockholmes got a reaction from G0dSpeed in I am new to PC building and I have a parts list set up but I keep comming back to the GPU and idk if it will be enough   
    Ok, so first of all you should get a bigger SSD. 1-2 TB would be great (if you plan on having multiple games installed). Then the processor is 2 generations behind, which is really bad. You should change that to an AMD 5600X. And lastly the graphics card, the 1660 Ti is also from last generation, so not the best value proposition. You're sort of in luck in that new processors from AMD and new graphics cards from AMD & nVidia just launched, so if I were you I would grab those if I were building a new computer right now. I don't know your budget, but if those cost a bit too much, I would rather save up a few dollars than buy last-gen tech. That would future-proof your system for a much longer time.

    I would suggest something more powerful. That 5500 XT is a *really* budget card for that resolution. If you want 165hz with 1440p I would suggest atleast a 5700. If you can wait a bit, google says that the 6700 line-up will be released in January. If you can wait, I would. Otherwise you should get something more powerful than a 5500 XT.
