    Soundblaster Z crackling sound

    Without the reg setting and with the windows update that I mentioned, CS:GO and Rising Storm audio both cut out mid-game.

    Soundblaster Z crackling sound

    Yesterday Windows Update offered a Creative driver update. I installed the driver update. Noticed my control panel settings were reset, so something was installed yet I can't seem to find what's been updated. Looked through device manager and the driver was from 2017 - I'm probably looking in...

    Worth upgrading my i7 930 to an X5680?

    Salute to X58! I still have 3 X58 boards, an Asrock X58 Extreme 1st revision, Gigabyte UD7 X58, and I'm currently using an EVGA Classified 141 E770 X58 for my main rig.. also have an i7 970, W3690, and an X5690. If my SATA ports didn't burn out on 2 of the boards (Asrock and the EVGA) I'd...

    Soundblaster Z crackling sound

    Could it possibly be one and not the other? I applied the reg patch for my Audigy Fx but used a (10) instead of 10(16) This is what's needed for the Fx: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\cthda\HDB\11020041] "HW_CTL_MX_BSIZE"=dword:00000010

    Soundblaster Z crackling sound

    Been running the latest windows 2004 for a month or two. Had a Zx installed and started noticing sound swapping. Was completely fine before, and running 24 bit 192Hz. Bought an Audigy Fx and the same thing. This is with CS:GO, Rising Storm, Rising Storm: Vietnam, Unreal Tournament 4. Ryzen...

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    You can use Ultimate. I would only edit values in the Ultimate Performance power plan. Leave the others alone, unless you want to change things but use Ultimate for gaming, and then when you are done gaming go back to Balanced.

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    Yes, disable Global C states and AMD Cool'n'Quiet, and enable the CPPC options. I wouldn't use that power plan. It's only designed to stop all other cores so that one core is being used and can boost to it's max potential as I've observed with Cinebench single thread. You can get around...

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    If your aim is for gaming then no. If for gaming then turn off Global C states, and AMD Cool'n'quiet'. Enable any CPPC option.

    How to set up my 3800x for regular usage

    There's quite a few ways to set things up. They involve the bios, power plan, and reg. For gaming, in the bios you want Cool n Quiet, C-States disabled, and SMT off, under Advanced CPU settings. In your power plan settings you'll also need to set 'Processor Idle Disable' to Disable. Use one...

    I've had that link the past few days when searching, and read it. What exactly am I missing?

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    What is Power Efficiency Class 1 and how does it differ from the other similar PPM settings? In this review: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/1usmus-custom-power-plan-for-ryzen-3000-zen-2-processors/ It's mentioned in the pic. In the registry there are 2 similar registry entries. One is...

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    I've enabled all attributes to be visible in the power plan settings. I've noticed 'activity window' seems to have an effect on gaming performance when the values are changed. Was 30,000 microseconds the default window even when not enabled? And is it also the same on an Intel system? Is...

    1usmus Power Plan for AMD Ryzen - New Developments

    tl:dr Is there a list of EVERY single Processor Power Management attribute that has changed and it's value before and after the change that's been implemented in the AMD power plans AND 1usmus plans? Thanks!
