    Husky got a reaction from BTGbullseye in 5700 XT, 1080p 144Hz vs 1440p 144Hz?   
    Your only upgrade options on that platform would be a newer Core i7 or something like that, but I think you should keep your current CPU until it becomes an issue and then just jump ship to an AMD platform. Depending on what games you play, you might be able to hold out on your current CPU until DDR5 and AM5 becomes a thing.
     
    But I say don't worry too much about your CPU at the moment (just know that it may become a weak point later), and just enjoy 1440p. As I said, depending on what games you end up playing, you could need a new CPU very soon, or you could only need one in a year or two.

    I would go for 1440p. Especially since the RX 5700 XT seems to do very well with that resolution.

    Your CPU may be a problem and cause a bottleneck in certain games. I have an i7 6700K that is overclocked and it bottlenecks my R9 390X in some games, especially Battlefield V where it is pegged at 100% utilization the whole game.
     
    If you play other games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, your CPU becomes less of an issue and you probably don't need to worry too much, but as multiplayer games such as the Battlefield series get more advanced, you may need to look into upgrading your CPU sometime in the future.

    ^^^ Or until Intel finally gets 10nm out the door, if you wanna stick with team blue. If you score a deal on an 8700K as an upgrade later down the line, it should hold you over for at least a couple more years, letting you wait for new AMD stuff and Intel to catch up (they're lagging behind a bit rn, but if they can do a proper job with 10nm/7nm in a year or two they should be pretty competitive again), and giving you more choices to pick from. 

    Like I said, the 8700K is still competitive, properly tuned it'll still slap an R5 3600 IIRC. If you can score one for around $200 (the price of an R5 3600), you can save money due to the fact you don't need a new mobo. 

    So if you have to upgrade, look for a deal on an 8700K. AM4 is too close to EOL to count on future CPUs, and on the current gen you need at least a 3700X to really have anything over an 8700K (and it'll still be slightly faster in most games due to ringbus just being better in games). If you don't need an upgrade rn, you're better off waiting to see if AMD's next batch of CPUs is backwards compatible with current chipsets (may be like the new TR chips, same pin setup but not chipset compatible), and for Intel to bring out their newer offerings. Then you'll have the ability to pick from both platforms, or older stuff on the used market from those who like to be on the bleeding edge doing their upgrades and selling off the old stuff. 
     
    TL;DR: yos, hang on to your current CPU/platform as long as you reasonably can. Both AMD and Intel should have even more competitive options out in the next year or two, plus older stuff hitting the used market, giving you a damn good selection to pick from if you want the best bang/buck.

    Wait till you actually have issues, then hunt for a used i7 8700K (they're still killer chips 2 years after their release). 8400 should do fine for most games though, I didn't have much issue using mine with a Radeon VII at 1080p. And that was on literally the cheapest H310 mobo I could find, with super basic 2400Mhz RAM.

    FPU stress in AIDA64 is like Prime95 smallFFT: Unrealistic load and temps for extreme worst case temperature testing, real world temps are usually 20C lower.

    Run DDU as suggested, and while installing the new drivers make sure that the factory defaults checkbox is checked as that seems to resolve a lot of people's issues.

    Download and run DDU (it uninstalls all parts of the display driver, IIRC even the registry bits) in safe mode, then reboot and try installing 2020 Edition. If that doesn't work, then DDU again and go back to 2019 Edition drivers. 2020 Drivers are just hella buggy for some people, it was the same when the 2019 Edition drivers launched last year. You'll wanna wait for a few updates (usually they're to fix bugs like this), then try updating to 2020 Edition again.

    I would go with AMD as the Intel gaming advantage is slowly dwindling away, especially as newer titles are taking advantage of more cores and are becoming more optimized for AMD as well.

    You should be able to boot just fine and see if it runs on the desktop, but don't open any 3D applications as that could either cause your system to shut down or it could cause hardware damage if your power supply is poorly made. It is still not the best idea though, but you could take the chance.

    Husky got a reaction from Muhlis in Are My PC Have Enough Specs To Run VM?   
    Yes, it will run a Windows 10 VM, but not very well at all because you have a very low amount of RAM. You will only be able to give the VM 2GB RAM since you need some left over for your host. If you are doing very lightweight things on both your host and your VM then it will be fine, but I highly recommend upgrading the amount of RAM in your computer.

    Husky got a reaction from Ben17 in Windows 10 fresh install stuck on "Just a moment..."   
    Are you sure that your UEFI BIOS is up to date? Here is the download page for your board: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/B450 Pro4/#BIOS
     
    Try reset the UEFI BIOS settings to the default settings and then turn CSM off so that it is pure UEFI. Insert your USB drive with a fresh copy of the latest version of Windows 10 (1909). Save and exit the UEFI BIOS and then boot off of the USB drive, not the internal drive or any Windows Boot Manager that is on the internal drive. Make sure to choose the UEFI option if there is one when booting from the USB drive.
     
    Once you are in the Windows installation when it asks for your language etc... Press Shift+F10 and a Command Prompt should appear. Type diskpart and press enter. Type list disk and press enter. Type select disk * and replace the * with the number of your internal SSD that you want to wipe and press enter. Type clean and press enter. Type exit and press enter. Close the Command Prompt. (WARNING: make sure you select the right disk number since this will erase the partition table from the disk)
     
    You may now continue with the installation, select Custom and click the Unallocated space of your SSD, then click Next (don't mess with partitions). Once it reaches the end when there is a count down until it restarts, remove your USB drive before the countdown finishes. Hopefully now your Windows installation will work correctly.

    Husky reacted to porina in Does a CPU use more voltage/power when in idle?   
    Voltage droop from loading isn't the main factor at stock. There's a curve of voltage needed at a given clock. When a single core is loaded, which can include light loads, the CPU will boost right up. At higher clocks, it needs higher voltage. When multiple cores are loaded, the boost is less and the lower clock needs a lower voltage.
     
    If you were running fixed clock and voltage like you would in a manual overclock, then the drop with more cores loaded is from loading.

    Husky got a reaction from Levent in Does a CPU use more voltage/power when in idle?   
    It is not actually using more power when idle, the voltage is higher, yes, but the actual power draw is less. The reason the voltage is lower when running under load is because there is voltage drop due to the increased power draw. Most motherboards have LLC (Load-Line Calibration) settings to try and combat this since it can sometimes cause instability when overclocking very far.

    Looks like my graphics card is active! I was so confused why my new MacBook Pro is consuming so much power. Thanks for the informative post I'm pretty new to macOS and I'm planning on using it for college cuz I've heard it's reliable. So far my battery has only gone through about 4 full cycles so I'm hoping to see some better battery performance.
