  1. @Donut417 Yeah, the router was provided, I think it's about 6.5 years old at this point. I don't know if it overheats or not, but it has been very unstable recently. What do you suggest I do?
  2. @Donut417Well, my brother has all the account information, and asking him to do anything is a pain. Hard to convince him anything... So what's the point of getting that range extender, anyway...? Also, I haven't been able to connect to it in the last few days, despite it being on. Strange. So even if I get a new router, the result won't be different.
  3. @Donut417It's a coax cable, really hard to pull out, so it's cable internet. My upload speed is also very inconsistent. Just ran another test and it's 5. But usually it's around 3 or so.
  4. @Donut417Not sure, since I'm not the one paying for internet service. Definitely not fiber, for sure, so it's either DSL or cable. Our family doesn't have any paid-TV service or program, though. It might be enough but if it keeps dropping and being unstable then it's pointless. Sometimes my ping goes up the roof or gets disconnected, and it's game over.
  5. Hello, I've been having problems with my internet quite bad recently, about a few months ago. It has always been bad for gaming, but this year, it was the worst. All of my devices, note 3, note 10, PC, TV, tablet, anything that can connect to the internet have been getting frequent disconnections randomly. They often get disconnected at the same time, but sometimes, my PC can still work, but my phone doesn't. Or the TV can still run Youtube, but my phone or PC are disconnected. Usually when this happens, I'd have to disable and reenable my wifi to get a connection. On my phone, it
  6. I have a 1660 Super MSI Gaming X. The RGB light itself is fine, but if I set it to Rainbow mode on Mystic Light, All Sync, it changes color faster than my other RGB components. The other ones change color slowly while their lights stay on, but the GPU fades to black, then changes to a different color. If I change RGB for only the GPU, then its light doesn't fade to black, but its speed doesn't match the others. I guess what I'm trying to say is it doesn't sync as well. Yes, I did try different speed. All Sync is supposed to make all parts run at the same speed, but it doesn't. It's just someth
  7. OP, it's been 2 months since you made this thread, and according to you, you've had this issue for 3-4 months prior. So it's been almost half a year that you've been dealing with it. That's some patience right there. What you can do now is: - RMA the card and get another one and pray that it doesn't have the same issue. - Refund and get an NVIDIA card. This is a common issue for AMD's 5000 series GPUs. They currently have no fix in sight. - Wait and pray AMD releases an update that can fix this. My 5600 MSI X had the same problem so I returned it. Those hoops and dan
  8. Those are before tax. Probably gonna be at least 250-260 with tax. I think the least expensive model is Evga.
  9. I have to RMA my MSI X 5600 tomorrow, and I want to get an NVIDIA card right away since I won't be able to run my PC without a GPU. I have a 3600 CPU, that's why. I'm planning to get a 1660 Super MSI X from Bestbuy for $290 or so (after tax). That will save me about $40, more or less, instead of getting a 2060 EVGA which is the same price as the 5600. No, I am not getting another AMD card. I thought about getting the 2060 EVGA, but heard its fans are loud and it runs quite hot often. The other 2060 cards are out of my budget. I was already stepping a little out of my budget range,
  10. It's pretty luck-based, from what I can see. I heard about AMD cards having some sort of drivers issue, but didn't know how bad it was. I took a gamble and I lost. Even someone else who thought about switching to 5700 didn't know how widespread it is until I asked him to help troubleshoot. Think of it like this: 2 out of 5 people who eat this meal will die. It's cheap and delicious, though. Will you take the risk? I just hope it's not going to jeopardize my account after making 2-3 returns in a few weeks. Long story short, this wasn't something I expected to have to return.
  11. Well, that depends on how long someone intends to keep the card. If it's only two years, well, it's not gonna matter to him. People are still having to RMA their card and AMD officially acknowledge that they are still monitoring the issue. Which means they still have no clue on how to fix it. Which is shocking considering how long the 5700 and 5600 have been out by now. Neither. But what I am seeing is an AMD fanboy. The number of people who are still pissed off with the black screen crashes, random restarts, including me who is sending it back tomorrow, strongly disagree with
  12. I have 3600. So now we conclude it's the card and not the RAM or PSU? It's going back, regardless.
  13. I DO NOT recommend any of the 5000 GPUs from AMD. They are infamous for having crashes and drivers issue. You are gambling with that purchase. Choose NVIDIA if possible.
  14. This confirms Radeon is the culprit. New bugs: Finally got the BSoD. Was playing CS, another guy got disconnected. "Lol he got disconnected" immediately after I typed that, the game crashed. Tried to launch it again and got BSoD. I think a certain holy man is watching me... One thing I'm concerned about is when I RMA this card, I'm gonna have to connect HDMI from my motherboard. For some reason, there's no signal when I plug the HDMI cable into my motherboard's port. Do I have to remove the GPU for it to work...?
  15. Already did. Thank god the Amazon customer support was easy. Might not have been the case if it was BH or Newegg. Now I'm looking at 1660 Super/TI or EVGA 2060.
  16. I was afraid the PSU could have been the cause at first, but after using WhoCrashed, the culprit turns out to be Radeon Software. Upon further research, this is the exact same driver issue that plagues the 5700 I've heard about. The worst case of scenario that I am afraid of is that if I get a new card and this issues persists, I'll have to start looking somewhere else for the root of the problem. But for now, all signs point to AMD being incompetent with their drivers. Once again, yes, everything is up to date. Xbox game bar? I don't have that. No idea what this specct thing is, e
  17. Japan, huh? GPUs must be more expensive over there, so I can understand why you went for whatever cheaper. I'm stingy with money, too, lol. XD Do you have any similar issues with your 5600? Are you ever gonna buy AMD again? First AMD build, first purchase, first experience, and my impression on them is not so good already. That AMD CPU better not have any issues. If I get a 2060 only to get this issue again, I'd probably smash something. >.< I notice that the EVGA 2060 has one 8-pin connector, as opposed to two on the 5600. Does it matter much?
  18. Already used DDU with safe mode. And this is a new PC build. It's the only GPU I ever used.
  19. Not yet. Well, it's luck-based. Some people are fine with the new update. Some still aren't. What driver conflict could this be?
  20. The one I linked. Strange... Did they release a new version with the metal backplate? Probably the old ones from a year ago didn't have one?
  21. Wait a minute... The EVGA 2060 doesn't have a backplate...? WTF?
  22. I was only playing CS GO with one monitor, lmao. And your GPU costs as much as my entire build...
  23. I have yet to even mess with any of those settings. Everything is still in default. OK. That was the last straw. Safe mode, DDU, all that TDR tricks didn't work. Just had another restart. Funny thing is that even though I disabled automatic restart so I can see the BSoD screen, it restarted anyway. Lol. I'll have to send an RMA request to Amazon. Hope they will accept. I threw the box away already... I was stupid. Learn from my experience. Stay away from AMD GPUs. Now, I'm probably gonna get the 2060. Question is, which one? This is the most a
  24. My PSU is titanium 550W. I can't believe those people who have similar crashes all have bad PSUs as well. It happens in a matter of seconds.
  25. I just built my first PC with a 5600 and when it works, it's good. But I've been very frustrated and exhausted by the random restarts/crashing from this GPU. I didn't know what the cause was at first, but upon further reading, seems like AMD is just incompetent at fixing their drivers. Yes, I've tried all kinds of fixes. TDR, bios update, reset profile, reinstall programs, etc. Did them all. Who else has/had a 5600/5700 and the same problem? I'm exhausted. I'll try to safe mode DDU this damn thing tomorrow. The deadline for return is 7/22. I am just one random restart from firing
