    iiyama Releases the GB3461WQSU Red Eagle Gaming Monitor

    It's kind of HDR, but not the full range. I believe HDR Ready is HDR600 and Full HDR is HDR1000 or HDR10+?

    FX-6300 OCed to 5 GHz

    I was able to push 4.9 GHz from mine back in the day. Actually it was getting better and better each year, because games started supporting more than 2 cores :D

    AREZ STRIX VEGA 64 OC BIOS

    Yes, I used the newest one and it "just worked" with a force flash. The vendor is different, that's why the System ID is different I presume. EDIT: The BIOS file was given in the thread already, go up ;)

    New GPU, should I replace thermal paste immediately?

    Just as @lexluthermiester said. It not something you have to do, it's just peace of mind I guess. And as far as my experience goes, there's always at least a two or three °C difference. If you ever popped a cooler of a GPU you may have seen all the shit that can be found under there :banghead...

    I always do that, force of habit I guess. The TIM manufacturers used before was usually crappy and applied horribly.

    Overclocking my memory

    Performance difference is only apparent in heavy all core usage such as rendering, because I got to increase the CCX speed and I'm really happy with it. Single core performance got up a bit by getting CAS to 15 and I think that's all I'm getting here. Stuck on 2933 MHz CL15 and that's more than...

    Overclocking my memory

    But SOC reading with default settings on my BIOS page shows 0,95 V, is this correct? :eek: I don't want to fry anything :D I think I've reached the limits of my CPU/RAM combo and I'm pretty happy with the results. Lowering the timings further yields a black screen and so does trying 3000 MHz...

    Overclocking my memory

    My sticks are Micron B-dies and when I input my frequencies, the latencies I get from the calculator are horribly high so I decided to do stuff on my own. Here's what DRAM Calculator gives me, and as you can see in the right columns, my latencies are way tighter: SOC voltage being VCORE...

    Overclocking my memory

    I've tried to lower the CAS timing to 15 from 16 but that doesn't work too well, haha. My desktop icons dissapear and things stop opening after a few minutes of usage. Well, since the sticks were cheap and are rated 2400 MHz I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I'll try to bump up the...

    Overclocking my memory

    Hi guys! I'm currently in the process of overclocking my RAM. It's a Crucial Sport 2400 MHz kit and I was able to push it to 2933 MHz using a higher DIMM voltage (1,20 → 1,45 V), still using XMP. The only voltage I've played with was the DIMM voltage. I can also change the DDRVPP voltage (2,5 V)...

    Random blue lights with RX 580

    Usually such flashing happens when the memory clocks are too high. You have underclocked the card and didn't achieve anything with it, so I guess that can't be it. It looks like a lens flare effect in Bioshock is broken, but why, I don't know. Does this happen in any other game?

    AMD adds Radeon Image Sharpening on Polaris Graphics Cards!

    As an alternative, I was using Reshade and one of the sharpening filters included in it. It's virtually the same, give it a try m8!

    Gimme this for my Vega... :( Edit: As of September 30th and the Radeon 19.9.3 beta driver, Vega owners also have RIS, YEEEAH!!!

    Yes, yes, that's it! Good job m8, glad it worked out for you, enjoy your 10%-ish free performance boost :D
