  1. Yeah, you'd have to get dirty with it as the system doesn't like to mess with system or efi partitions. Consider using a position management software like eases, https://www.easeus.com/partition-manager/epm-free.html Aside from that and the overall easy way, you can always consider a fresh install of windows to clean everything up.
  2. Oh! Why didn't I noticed that... Expand your efi, then shrink, then expand C:
  3. Right click your C: partition and select "extend volume", use the max space available to expand, let it do it's thing.
  4. Well I'm not a fan of evga's power supplies, but that should not be the issue then. (Especially if it's been replicated between two PSUs now) I would still check under the VRM sink. Even with adequate air flow, if the pads are dried up or the sink itself doesn't have enough pressure it will still cause problems. In doing this I would also clean and inspect for cold or broken solder connections, as well as damaged components on the board. Specifically around power delivery (6&8 pin Pcie power plugs mainly) and all caps. Reasoning being, you'd want to repair individual solder joi
  5. Two things here: First, let's get the specs of the PSU you are using. These cards can spike 370 watts. If you don't have 35a available to the card alone, it will trip OCP and reset the system. A lot of the time people will buy a multi rail psu with plenty of wattage for their system, but not realize that the rail providing power to the GPU is insufficient. A way to test this is to use the power slider in afterburner, set it down to 60% and game/ test. If it does not reset or crash, it's your psu. Second, the VRMs on those cards are known to get very hot. I would check
  6. Check this out on @Newegg: ASRock X570 PHANTOM GAMING 4 WIFI AX AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard https://www.newegg.com/asrock-x570-phantom-gaming-4-wifi-ax/p/N82E16813157893?Item=N82E16813157893&Source=socialshare&cm_mmc=snc-social-_-sr-_-13-157-893-_-07042021
  7. Board: $100 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089FY7QT1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_VFJ9H8VSDWR5AKEH47VN Proc: $300 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SXMZLPK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_5YW1BAEHKMJ35DKVDBZ4 Decent (upgradeable) setup that will last you a couple years.
  8. Just my 2 cents here... 5950x + 32gb on micron E-die in my rig running 3800 @ 16-20-16. The performance gained is mostly in the fclk (1900). Mild PBO that keeps temps under 70c paired with a 3080ti, I couldn't be happier with the setup. Of course I could push it more, but why when I have a quiet system that has plenty of grunt (and then some) for everything I want to do with it...
  9. Have you tried removing one USB device at a time and restarting? A faulty USB device (or device driver) can cause a loop and cause the os to restart the USB controller. Furthermore, be sure to install/update to the latest AMD chipset drivers: https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/x570
  10. My bet is on the PSU. Are you using the older psu from the last build? Psu components degrade over time and end up not being able to supply enough power and trip OPP (over power protection) when CPU and GPU are stressed together.
  11. I guess I'm out of ideas. I'm really sorry. One last thing to try (don't expect world changing effects however) is to toggle the hardware scheduling: https://www.ghacks.net/2020/07/03/why-you-may-want-to-enable-hardware-accelerated-gpu-scheduling-in-windows-10/#:~:text=Microsoft introduced a new graphics,use the graphics processing unit. End of the day, you are not crazy and you are underperforming for your setup. My thoughts lead me to lean toward the MB being the constraint in your situation. Maybe pick up a cheap x470 board? Would also allow you to expan
  12. Hmmm, interesting. I see you're using two displays. When gaming, is 1080p native resolution for the display you choose to game on? Furthermore, have you tried gaming without a second cable plugged into the GPU?
  13. Power cables to the GPU, are there 2 separate cables going all the way to the PSU?
