  1. Hi all, I recently downloaded DCS and I'm having some trouble getting it to run properly. When I load into a game, the framerate is really low, easily under 30 FPS. My hardware monitor shows that the game is using less than 10% GPU and CPU, 4/6GB VRAM, and 16/32 DRAM. I assume something isn't right because the game is chugging but none of my system resources are maxed.

  2. Do you have the old 5700? If you do, put it back in and see if problems persist. Before that, try completely wiping your display drivers with DDU then reinstalling them.
  3. Could you post some clearer pics of where the internal dc cable connects to the mobo? I had similar issues with my Alienware 17R2. The DC jack to mobo connector looked fine at first but when I unplugged it, it was so burned that the plastic crumbled in my hands. Those DC jack cables are like $10 so you could get a new one to see if that's your problem. Can you confirm your AC adapter is working? If you can maybe try another power cable rated for the same Watts/Volts/Amps. As for the battery pin, leave your battery unplugged from the mobo if you test a new DC
  4. Sometimes there are safety features that you need to disable in bios before you are able to overclock.
  5. I'm inclined to think this is a software problem, not a hardware problem. Check your Windows and your Discord audio settings to make sure they're using the correct inputs/outputs. Do you or have you used in the past any digital audio splitters, streaming software, anything at all that manipulated your audio inputs/outputs? If it's not a problem with your USB webcam, a quick and dirty fix would be just getting a cheap USB headset and seeing if that works. You said you tried multiple headsets, were any of them USB? You said people on the discord call could sti
  6. Dumb question but you removed the screws from the expansion slot, right?
  7. Despite the fact that you damaged the CPU, I wouldn't assume it's the source of the problem unless you've exhaustively tested the RAM, because that's what that error light is for. Have you tried reseating your RAM? Booting with only one stick? Changing around the slots? Do you have another PC you can test the RAM in? Clear your CMOS before booting.
  8. If your water cooler doesn't have any cables that plug into the CPU_FAN header, the bios will throw errors because it thinks there's nothing cooling the CPU. You can usually disable the warnings in the bios settings. 45C is absolutely fine. 80C on the GPU is a little hot but not unexpected for what you're doing. You can try increasing fan speed through your GPU software. I wouldn't worry about damaging your CPU or GPU, they have safety features and will turn themselves off if they start getting hot enough to cause damage.
  9. You need to install an older compatible CPU, perform the update, then put your 5800X in. Some tech stores like Micro Center can do this for you so you don't have to mess around with another CPU. If you want to do it yourself but don't have another CPU, AMD will loan you one: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/pa-105#faq-Short-Term-Processor-Loan-Boot-Kit
  10. You need to update the BIOS using either an older CPU or a USB stick (if your motherboard supports USB flash)
  11. Try inserting the USB while the PSU is off, and then switching on the PSU. Don't use any case buttons to power on the motherboard, because it will boot right into it's current bios and skip the update from usb step. Make sure the USB stick is formatted with FAT32 and MBR partition type. Before trying again, clear the CMOS (either by shorting the two pins directly next to the coin cell battery, or removing the coin cell battery for at least an hour). If all that doesn't work, try using an 8GB or smaller USB stick. Make sure the GIGABYTE.bin file is actually showing up as the .bin file type.
  12. This means the BIOS update didn't work. Try it a few more times before heading to a repair shop. In my case, I tried to USB flash a few times before figuring out that I had to have the USB stick in before I switched the PSU on, but there are a lot of small specific things that will cause the update to fail if they aren't exactly right. Those tutorial videos are good but they can't possibly cover the quirks of every single board/build. Also, you won't get anything if you plug the display into the Mobo, it needs to be connected to the GPU. You can do a Q-flash with everyt
  13. Running at 1920x1080, no mods. I was messing around with the game settings to try to lower the VRAM, but nothing I changed had any impact on it, even lowering the textures. It makes sense that that's the bottleneck, though. I'm assuming high 5000s on a 6000MB card is essentially maxing out the VRAM? I'll mess around some more and see if I can get lower numbers. Thanks for the help!
