  1. The one to replace is 2933 MHZ CL22 and the replacing one is 2666 CL 19 I think. It was just an Idea but if you say it's not worth it, I'll scrap that Idea
  2. I have it installed via Microsoft Store(I didn't know Steam when I bought it). I think it might be a problem with the game but thanks for the advice
  3. Nope, no problems with any other game. No stability issues whatsoever. No overclocking done on either the GPU of the CPU. I have an i7 10750H, 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1660Ti mobile in my Asus Strix G17. It also crashes on lowest settings
  4. I recently replaced the 16 gigabytes of single-channel sodimm memory with a 32 gig stick. Now I had the Idea of putting that into my second laptop. But that one has two 8 gig sticks with slightly faster speeds but higher timings. Would it cause problems if I replaced one 8 gig stick with the 16 gig stick of my other laptop? Because it is dual channel and would it still work with two RAM sticks with different capacities?
  5. I have PC Building Simulator installed on my laptop and when I play in free mode and go any further than to install a motherboard into a case and try to select a different parts category in the install menu, it just crashes. I tried it with every category available and it for some reason only crashes on CPU and GPU categories(CPU, GPU and the watercooled GPUs). With CPU blocks it doesn't crash. Does someone know why that happens? I have it on the best graphics settings if that helps
  6. I wanted it to be silent so like that the fan wouldn't have to wramp up high
  7. Budget (including currency): 1200$ Country: Switzerland Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: light gaming, recording, Star Wars the Old Republic, Minecraft Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Existing parts list on Pcpartpicker :https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/NL4Gt8. He's going to play on a 75hz 1080p screen. His price budget/Limit is around 1200$. Is this one good? Or should something be changed?
  8. Yes, I think that is normal. As long as it's not frequent I'd say it's okay
  9. Budget (including currency): 2000 Fr.- Country: Switzerland Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Fortnite RTX and recording/editing gameplay Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Existing parts list on Pcpartpicker: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/DreamCat04/saved/ndgfyc Display config is 1080p 144hz and I am upgrading from a Dell prebuilt with a I7 9700 and an RTX 2060. No peripherals needed
  10. Hi, a friend of mine just showed me CUDO Miner. When I tried to run it, Microsoft kept telling me that there is a potentially unwanted app and it was CUDO Miner. Is it safe to use? I also don't know if I can trust them and give them my details to recieve the earned revenue. I ran it for a bit already and my hash rate is at 25.5MH/s on my GPU. I am quite sceptical about softwares like this because I don't want anything to happen, so I'm really careful. SO is CUDO Miner safe to use? Regards DreamCat04
  11. Try re-seating the cooling system and look out for an even mounting pressure on all the screws. If that doesn't help, test if your cooling system is even functional. You can do that by removing it from your laptop and then grabbing it carefully by its fins and holding an active lighter a couple centimeters under the contact area where the cpu would touch it. That way you put in heat into the system. If the fins get warmer and hot eventually it's fine and it's not the fault of the cooling system. If it stays the same temperature, the heat pipes could be dead and need to be replaced. In that cas
  12. 95 in Idle? With new thermal paste? Is there a good contact between the cooler and the GPU? The issue could then be low mounting pressure. May be caused if there are thermal pads on the VRMs are too thick
  13. Yeah, with Laptops that old, this is always a good thing to try
  14. Hi, what are your temperature spikes like? How high do they go? Also you can test for general overheating by running something CPU-intensive and see if it overheats. If it does, it could be a couple things: 1. your thermal paste dried out 2. your Fan has some Problems or 3. your exhaust is blocked with dust. I don't think it is a sowtware Problem, it seems more like a Hardware-Problem to me Hope this helped
  15. I just closed Afterburner and look at that: An almost constant power usage of 3 Watts on the CPU while plugged in and with Spotify running. Now it only very occasionally switches it on for a short moment. That was how it should be like. Looks like MSI Afterburner caused it. Does anyone know why that is like this? At least now I'm happy that I can finally use my laptop for probably 4 hours on battery again if I do it correctly. Thanks for all the tips although I was able to find it out myself
