  1. Can anyone identify those power connectors on the first motherboard? The one by portwell with all the USB ports?
  2. Well part of this is strange, bc I have D2 downloaded to C: on my NVMe drive, however earlier that day I did unplug and swap sata ports for my 3 hard drives because 2 of them were reporting as 100% usage in task manager with zero data transfer. No D2 files are installed on any of those drives, so IDK what happened.
  3. Gonna be honest, even googling that first part came up empty. But it appears that a possible answer is that multiple socket motherboards exist for Epyc, but not ryzen or threadripper, and having two CPU's fight over time communicating with the chipset, which they would share, would massively slow down performance, and the target customer of Epyc, data centers and big corporations, wouldn't like that, so by integrating a chipset into each Epyc CPU, they can just communicate with each other without a slow middle man, massively increasing efficiency in multi-socket configurations. Ag
  4. Very true, up until around 4000MHz RAM. Their is a setting in the BIOS called the fabric clock, or f-clock, which should not be changed, and its number is equel to half of the memory clock, or m-clock, which is the frequency the system RAM is running at. Higher speed RAM equels high speed fabric, which equals less latency between parts of the CPU, which equals more performance. Do not raise the f-clock yourself as this will cause the f-clock to fall out of sync with the m-clock, resulting in an actual loss of performance. The 4000 MHz RAM limitation is because at the
  5. Correction, threadripper does have a chipset, the X399 chipset for Zen and Zen+, and the TRX40 chipset for Zen 2 and hopefully Zen 3. Epyc, the server counterpart to threadripper, does not have a chipset, and the chipset is in fact integrated into the CPU.
  6. Currently compiling stuff and of course that puts your CPU at 100% load, but I was curious, and disabled Core 11 in the affinity menu for the compiling program, but even though now core 11's usage is only like 50%, yet total CPU usage is still 100%, by my calculation it should be around 96% by doing (100*11.5)/12=95.8, and rounding up. Nothing to be concerned about, but is this just a bug in Task Manager or what?
  7. Stuff like key commands (Alt+R for me) and other radeon software operations such as toggling recordings with a keybing (in my case ctrl+alt+e) don't do a thing, that annoying little red bar that is always in the top left corner of my screen is gone (I never understood why it was there in the first place), and even attempting to shut down applications in task manager relating to Radeon Software, and then relaunching it from my start menu, adds it 's icon to the right side of my task bar (what is that area called again), but it is still broken. And yes I have removed 'gmdb.blb' whic
  8. Better than my brother, he is running 4x4GB of DDR3-1600, and there are a ton of kits out there that run at DDR3-1333, yes, that's after double data rate, so literally half the frequency of OP
  9. Thats not the case because as far as steam was concerned, the game had been uninstalled and the game properties and/or "browse local files" were not available in the context menu
  10. Alright well thank god part of the install process is to check for existing Destiny 2 files and validating them. False alarm I guess.
  11. What is the motherboard and CPU? Bc if you are on an Intel H or B platform, setting the memory to 3600 will always cause it to momentarily fail POST before setting it back to 2666 and completing POST, and your motherboard may still have 3600 as what is set in BIOS, but shown to the user, in actuality the system has it set to 2666, and this is what CPU-Z is correctly reporting..
  12. So my steam library has Destiny 2 (a game I was just playing like 3 hours ago, before I restarted my PC bc my tertiary HDD was acting up) marked with an install button. But if I navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Destiny 2 all of the games assetts still seem to be there. What can I do to fix this issue? Is it a DRM issue or a file that went missing that tells Steam that I own this game or something.
  13. You are right, but also like I still want to know, I made a slip up and said decreased rather than increased
  14. Yes. Before: $200 Now: $140. Maybe the price has risen again more recently, but it is still significantly less than what it was about 2 years ago. Which is why I'm asking what changed in the industry to afford those cheaper prices per gigabyte.
