    How much has your GPU performance increased on your current platform (socket)

    When I got my Optiplex, it had 2 Radeon HD 8490s in crossfire. I benchmarked it with and without crossfire, and it made almost no difference, so I took one out and sold it. A few months on, I now have an RX 570, a relative performance increase of 1307%. CPU is an i7-4770.

    Is my 400w PSU enough for my RX 580?

    How did that go?

    The chipset revision is different than the chipset driver version. The revision means hardware version. If you don't use the driver supplied by Dell, you're just getting the latest generic Windows version for your chipset,which may not support all the features offered by your chipset. Dell does...

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    I don't consider any of my PC's very nostalgic, even though the oldest one is a Pentium D. I wish I still had my slot 1 Pentium 3 system, or the first PC I built myself, which was an Athlon XP 1600+. This thing still brings back some memories though, and not all good ones: And yes, it still...

    Is my 400w PSU enough for my RX 580?

    580 is pretty power hungry, I wouldn't try running it on any 400w PSU, let alone one of EVGAs worst units. It might work, and if it doesn't, it probably won't do any damage, but why risk it? Buy a new quality 450W PSU minimum, imo.

    Yeah, that's on my list, just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've almost pulled the trigger a couple of times, found a Q6600 locally for $10. Didn't get it though, because I thought I'd need to upgrade the cooler too and decided to buy the i7 based system instead.

    That's a handy drive bay thing, especially if you don't have usb 3 in the front. Luckily I have 4 usb in the front, 2 of them 3.0. I'm not going to run out and buy one, but if I see something like that browsing local ads I'd definitely pick it up. Much neater solution than double sided taping...

    Thought this would be a good place to put my writeup instead of creating a new thread for it. Just a bunch of things people should know about that plan to upgrade the GPU in their Optiplex 9020 mt. This is just some information for people thinking about upgrading their Optiplex 9020 mt, or who...

    Rx 570 max vram at 1750

    Try using DDU to uninstall the drivers in safe mode, then reinstall the latest version from AMD.

    About to reflash ex-mining RX 570 8GB

    Yeah, I figured only flash the failed side. So here's where I'm at. Tried the third first, and the first second, they both hard froze Windows halfway through the flash. Rebooted fine with the old bios each time. Did the second one last, and it actually successfully flashed: As you can see...

    About to reflash ex-mining RX 570 8GB

    Successfully flashed the first stock clock bios on your list to bios 1 (switch to the right.) I got an error message "VBIOS image not found" when trying to flash the OC bios to bios 2 (switch to the left.) I'd be up for trying a different OC one, or a 580 one you recommend.

    Classless RPG Recomendations

    I also still find the game pleasant to look at, if you aren't zoomed all the way in to see the low poly models, the textures and particle effects still hold up better than other games of it's age imo.

    About to reflash ex-mining RX 570 8GB

    I'll give it a shot, thanks again. Will update tonight. Besides raising the stock clock speeds, is there much benefit to flashing the 580 bios? It can't unlock any TMUs or SPs or anything for extra performance, right?

    About to reflash ex-mining RX 570 8GB

    Been reading through your post history, I don't doubt your knowledge here, was just curious so I could figure it out myself next time. I'd be interested in playing with the OC or 580 bios, once I get the stock clock one working. The second stock bios for this card was a quiet mode or something...
