  1. What does CPU-Z say? Are you running XMP (DOCP), bios default or manual memory settings?
  2. Even a "Quick Format" is harder to recover from on an SSD since the data on a HDD is written sequentially while it's all random access on the SSD. Meaning, on a HDD it's easy to recreate a file table.
  3. Use Parted Magic to do a Secure Erase on the drive.
  4. Not bad, but can be improved. 3600 instead of 3600X. Saves you a bit of money for the same performance. A cheaper cooler in the cooling performance range. The CM 212 is actually pricey. Consider MSI or Asus boards. Asrock has strange BIOS behavior. You'd want DDR4 3600 CL16 for Ryzen 3000. Replace the SSD with some that has DRAM cache. At least Blue if it has to be WD. Avoid Seagate drives. Not reliable. And if you have to have an HDD, get at least 2TB. And the PSU, you'd want something from the PSU Tier List, the one here on the forum. AND you l
  5. I found out the memory Kingston uses in the Fury 3200 CL16. It's Hynix JJR with tighter timings.
  6. With a bios upgrade, it might support Ivy bridge like the i7 3770.
  7. Is your CPU throttling because of overheating? Check temperatures under load. Check for malware using Emsisoft Emirgency kit (free) and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free). Why are you using settings the CPU would bottleneck the GPU even more? Increase the resolution. If the screen is 1366x768, use Nvidia Super resolution to play on 1080p. Modern games are made to run on at least 1080p, some work better on lower but only if the CPU is strong enough to feed the GPU more frames.
  8. And how should I do that on RAM I do not have? I need to know before blind buying.
  9. Wait till November 5th (that's in 2 days!) to see the benchmarks of the new Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series (compared to the Zen 2 3000 series and the Intel 10000 series) and then decide. The upgrade path that I would recommend would be a Ryzen 5 3600 or 5600 (depending on your budget) and the MSI B550-A PRO board.
  10. Hi. I have a set of 2 8GB modules of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 3200MHz CL18 in my system since the day I bought my first Ryzen platform (R5 1600X, Gigabyte ultra Gaming X470, 16GB ddr4 3200) when RAM cost almost 2.5 times more than today (you remember the price craze some 2.5 years ago). Those modules use the Hynix CJR RAM, so although they are CL18 it's good for overclocking. Now I'm on a Ryzen 5 3600 (planning an upgrade to Ryzen 7 5800 next year) with an Asus Prime X570-P motherboard. And I would like to upgrade my RAM. The exact RAM modules I have aren't available any longer
  11. That's not a great board for overclcoking. In my opinion, you should only set XMP and use CTR (Clock Tuner for Ryzen) by 1usmus to tune it.
  12. The 4 cores of that locked CPU are the cause of the issues you have. I would recommend upgrading to an i7 6700/7700 series or changing the platform (Motherboard + CPU).
  13. Yeah, I did buy it new. Now I'm on a MSI B450 Tomahawk that I bought as a replacement since the RMA took a few months (that was during the last Covid spring/sumer spike), and since the RMA allowed for a new board and I didn't want Gigabyte I got an Asus X570-P that I'm still waiting to install (working in healthcare doesn't really give me enough time to upgrade the PC with the parts I have laying arround).
  14. Not a good choice. I had a one and it suddenly stopped working with my 5700XT, got it RMA-d and got my money back. The board felt great at first, but it has issues.
