  2. Help this has happened 3 times now. Randomly the pc would just downgrade in performance and this time it just froze and had to be rebooted.
  3. Sorry for the stupid question but what is DDU and how do you use it.
  4. UPDATE: Repasting it with some Kryonaut seemed to do the trick. It now runs Cinebench R23 at around 82-84C. Running chrome, hwmonitor and discord its around 41-44C. Scored 15451 on multicore as well after the repaste.
  5. Regretably I onpy have one DP cable and the monitot has only one DP slot. Wow, not a lot I can do-
  6. The problem is my TV doesn't have a DP connection, not to mention its on the other side of the house. And I dont have a HDMI cable either. But due to the fact that it worked the second I turned it off and back on do you think the chances are higher its the monitor?
  7. Hi, I was just playing some Minecraft when all of a sudden my monitor started to display really wierd lines all over. And the power and menu buttons wouldn't respond. So I unplugged the monitor and turned it back on and all was normal. Is this an issue with my GPU or my monitor? What happened? Please help!
  8. I had a similar question at first with whether OBS would let you record audio from a specific application however it did not work fully and the parts that did work made the audio sound too sharp. So is there a way I can change the audio output for discord for example to 'insert output thing here' and keep OBS recording from the game whose audio output is set to 'Default.' And I would be able to listen to the audio from both at the same time while OBS records only the dafault one. SO in a nutshell its pretty much the reverse of what you usually do to make OBS only record audio from one app. Is
  9. Yep, I have the 5800x as well, which is why I recommended the Asus ROG Strix x570-E Gaming, its the best board I tried out so far. Good luck trying to find a RTX 3080 mate! Don't give up! Just a tip, as far as I read and my own experience, the 5800x runs hot, its idle for me at 40-45 with a 360mm AIO (H150i Elite Capellix) and it spikes to 90 under 30 seconds doing Cinebench R23 multicore. I'm sticking with this build until the second or third generation for AM5 comes out.
  10. You could get the Asus ROG Strix x570-E Gaming. It's a premium board with a lot more features than the Aorus Elite. But to be honest it's not worth it to upgrade the motherboard now with the next gen on the horizon needing a AM5 chipset. But you could go the reverse and skip first gen AM5 and stay with a top end AM4 system while you wait for AM5 and DDR5 prices to drop in the future.
  11. I have the same CPU, it does seem to run rather hot, even under a 360MM aio for me. For me it idles around 40-45 degrees doing Chrome and Discord. But the second you slap some intensive task to in it moves up to 55-65. Cinebench R23 got it to 90 degrees in less that 30 seconds. I've also heard that the 5800x is one of the hottest CPUs in the 5000 series lineup. I'm about to try repasting the cooler with some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut to see if that could help, but other than that I do not know what else to do. You could check to see if you mounted your cooler tight enough but I doubt that is th
  12. I would have suggested an Asus ROG Strix x570-E Gaming or an Asus TUF Gaming x570 Pro (Wifi). But seeing that you would like an all white build, then yes, the NZXT N7 B550 or the Asus PRIME x570-PRO would suffice. Apparently the x570 boards have better overclocking potential and better VRM cooling with that built in fan. But the NZXT board, even though it has less expansions slots (for 4.0 x1 and 4.0 x16) it has onboard WiFi and bluetooth. Not to mention the extra USB 3.0 ports, 266MHz more compatible memory speed (4666MHz vs 4400MHz). Either way, I do not think there will be a massive perform
  13. So you know when you go to google images you could click an image and it'd pop up to the right side of the screen or something? It doesn't do that, I clicked it and still nothing happens. Please help! EDIT: I found out it was Bitdefender's anti tracker for some reason. Anyone else having or had this problem?
