    Very strange problem: No video signal! falty hardware?

    I cant help at all with linux issues The UEFI issue is where you'll get no image in the early stages of booting, usually staying blank until you hit the windows login screen That's caused by having a GPT/UEFI installed OS and motherboard, but with a GPU that lacks UEFI support (or commonly...

    Very strange problem: No video signal! falty hardware?

    Is the problem that you have no video signal, until the OS loads? If so, does it behave normally in windows from that point on? I'm suspecting this may be a simple UEFI issue, they're quite common with the older systems that could be UEFI or BIOS

    ASRock B550 PG Riptide

    The board looks nice, but good lord am i sick of boards with shitty 4+2 VRMS They serve a purpose for low end machines, but shouldnt exist on anything but the A320/A520 chipsets And why the heck waste the space on a board for x16 plastic if they're 4x and 1x... good old open ended 1x slots exist

    Cant seem to figure out why my game is stuttering

    Anything under 80C, i guess. The best boards (which are often over priced) hang around 60C, even without fans. It's not like we're worried about the board dying here, we just want the throttling to stop so performance stays constant Baiter: dont try and mix and match settings btw, PBO (and...

    Those ECO settings will reduce the performance of your CPU somewhat, but should be absolutely within the limits of that mobo

    RAM heatsinks

    At stock voltages, no. Even overclocked, often no.

    I just succesfully baked DDR4

    I wish i'd thought of this before i threw out an 8GB stick of corsair DDR4 a few months back What an obvious, logical extension of the GPU baking

    Yes! you have manual settings! These are the ECO mode settings the newer boards have, try these

    Cant seem to figure out why my game is stuttering

    That's okay, discussions happen that aren't always relevant and may go over your head... and i make mistakes too (which is why i edit my posts a lot) With HWinfo, If you start it after cinebench testing begins and take a screenshot during the testing, the current (now) and average (while...

    CPU testing and win 11?

    Just updating this thread: the fixes are live, and most results are back to normal. W1zz being W1zz, i'm sure he'll test on W10 as well.

    Cant seem to figure out why my game is stuttering

    You missed an earlier post where i wanted him to reset the values while the test was running, so there'd be no idle results from before the testing It's one method to see clock stretching 2700x is meant to be 105W with PBO disabled, that's an issue with running a zen+ on a first gen board - it...

    Cant seem to figure out why my game is stuttering

    Damn, system (VRM) is still at 90C - and still seeing 131W CPU usage If you reset HWinfo after starting cinebench, then the effective clocks tell us a story: the minimum and average are not 3.9GHz, they're dropping off to impossible numbers as the cores shut down to save power (50Mhz and 1.9Mhz...

    Windows 11 Performance Issues on Ryzen Fixed by Updates from Microsoft and AMD

    Shhh, you know better. That's because the 2000U series are Zen1 chips, unsupported in 11.

    Windows 11 General Discussion

    I have a portable SSD i use here for that sort of thing, usually with laptop diagnosis The activation periodically re-checks (30 days? 180? no idea) and can de-activate at times Put it back into a system with a valid registered key, and its back I dont know if others have noticed, but the...

    GIGABYTE Reportedly Refuses to RMA Customer's GP-P750GM Power Supply

    No, NZXT didnt. They sent one fixed model to youtubers, then sent a cheap flawed model to consumers. They kept doubling down on the problems repeatedly. Giga? exploding hardware, refusing warranties. MSI? To this day they still sell AM4 boards with VRMs that jump over 100C and thermal throttle...
