  1. Hi all, Since i did a freesh install of my Windows 10, every time I put my PC in sleep mode wake it up, every color customization comes bac to a wierdly agressive turquoise. If I change it to a different color let's say gray), it will stay gray until next reboot or sleep mode. I did deactivate account settings sync as suggested by the Microsoft forum but it didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks
  2. No, it's set on auto. I also tried to put it on gen 3 and nothing happenned. I'll give it a second try tonight knowing that Gen 4 is not suitable fot it. That's at least one thing to not care about anymore.
  3. Hey all it's me again. I'm having trouble using my GPU with the PCIE x16 on my motherboard. It just doesn't generate any video output. Apparently the B550 has a pcie 16x gen 4 and an m.2 gen 4 linked straight to the CPU or something like that. Rest of the PCIE are x4. My m.2 ssd is plugged in the gen but my gpu just doesn't work in the pcie gen 4. Mobo is brand new, got a new one from the store after having that issue (thinking the problem was the mobo). Maybe there is something i need to enable in the BIOS or something idk. Getting desperate. **GPU works just fine in a
  4. First off, looking at the specs I assume this is a pre-built computer right? Wich means it probably has the stock cooler on the APU and almost no airflow... You could overclock it, but it's a bit tricky because it an APU (CPU and GPU mixed together). It's the same physical part and might overheat faster if you overclock any of the CPU or GPU part. Also, APUs are not super performant so you might not see a big difference in overclocks. I'm even surprised a modenr PC cans till run on 4 GB of RAM. And now reading @jaslionpost, i relaise it'a laptop (stupid me). Don't even try to overclock. More c
  5. I think PSU is Power Supply Unit. Not 100% sure about the "unit" one tho
  6. Google says that the GPU will consume at most 200 watts and CPU will consume 65 watts (those numbers are stock. Might go higher if you overclock). It's also important to consider all the rest of the system. 650 is more than enough. A friend of mine has a R5 3600 paired with a 2070 Super (it's quite similar to the 3060 Ti performance wise) and says on his heaviest games his CPU does around 65 - 75 % usage when GPU is maxed. Like @Downkeysaid it all looks good to me.
  7. I tried all 5 options, Gen 1, Gen 2, Gen 3, Gen 4 and Auto. None of them makes it work. I did figure out that the systems posts properly and the the GPU works in some way because i need to hold the power button on my case to sgut it down. If it wasn't reaching windows it would be instant shut down.
  8. Hi all, I just got a Ryzen 5 5600X with a Gigabyte Aorus B550 Pro V1. Somehow, my GPU doesnt seem to generate any output when plugged in the top PCI-E slot (wich is the Gen 4 X16). It works just fine in the second slot but who would not want to settle for a X4 when you can have an X16 right? I updated the BIOS to the F10 version (apparently this was mendatory for the CPU to actually run at all). I did look though the BIOS and didn't find anything about PIC-E lanes or anything. My computer works just fine but I'd like to use that top slot tho get those max sweet sweet FPS.
  9. Question : If i swap a motherboard on with I have a made a pool of 2 SSDs, will i loose everything, will i have to redo the pool or will everything will stay the same. Those are two 2.5" Samsung 1TB SSDs. I only have games on 'em so it's not too bad it i loose stuff. Going from a B350 to B550 soon. Any tips, experience or input on that? Thanks
  10. Oh well. It seems I have hit the jackpot without knowing! Thanks to both of you for the input. They all seem to start at its price or close to so i thought it was a kinda low-mid tier motherboard.
  11. Hi all, Just looking for recommendations for a 3rd gen Ryzen compatible motherboard (for a 5600X). Not looking for the best one nor the worst one. Something in the middle with decent performance. It would be paired wiith an RTX 2070 Super. Right now i'm considering the GIGABYTE B550 AORUS PRO. All input are welcome. Thank you.
  12. In terms of PSU, SeaSonic and Corsair are my go to. They are probably the ones availible on the market. And yes 650 watts should be enough for the system but I like to go a bit overboard with the PSU to make it future proof si I don't have to change it later (i have 750W for a 1600x and a 2070S). I can't confirm or deny the reliability of Cooler Master's PSU.
  13. You should not. For example, a USB port is only 5 volts. You will never feel anything fom a 5v shock. Maybe it was just statick that you felt? You honestly probably have more chances to get burned by an overwhelmly hot CPU or GP than getting any kind of shock from a PC. AND PLEASE DO NOT PUT A SREWDRIVER INTO THE POWER SUPPLY. The powersupply is the only component that could actualy hurt you if you mess with it cause of the giant capacitors.
  14. Alrighty then, I'll give it a try and see how it does. Thanks for the info.
