    Intel Optane memory not configuring.

    Alright, but would changing this setup from ahci to raid cause a reboot. Such as loss of files and programs?

    Intel Optane memory not configuring.

    Alright, I'm not quite sure on how to switch them. How would I go about doing that. Within the boot menu or within a command? And would switching them alter anything (programs and documents and such?)

    Intel Optane memory not configuring.

    So meaning I would have to reinstall everything again?

    Intel Optane memory not configuring.

    How would you have to set up the bios for intel rapid storage? Would I need to reinstall the entire os again? My motherboard says its intel optane ready. Or could I just go into my bios options in the boot menu?

    Intel Optane memory not configuring.

    Hi there, I've just recently bought an intel optane memory 16gb module and have just installed it into my m.2 slot. I'm having trouble enabling it and have read that I might even have to reinstall the operating system just to get it working. I've tried updating all drivers but still it only...

    The best price v performance GPU out of these four

    Just starting this up again quickly. But for the reason of pc cases. I'm currently using a pretty basic office desktop case and would like to upgrade it as everything within is on a tight fit and I would also like to expand my gpu capabilities when I do buy one. My maximum length is 280mm...

    The best price v performance GPU out of these four

    Well I see this discussion has certainly blown out :D. But it's good to see the many different opinions, although some are more valued than others. I've currently ruled out the 2060 for now as the price is far too inflated. Considering these things out here are more costly, with gst and tax on...

    The best price v performance GPU out of these four

    Hmm alright well I see the general consensus here on that particular model card is perhaps why it is the cheaper of the rtx 2060s. If that is the case then I'll have to rule out the 2060 for now. The next best is the msi 2060 ventus, but its way over at $620. If I were lucky I would probably be...

    The best price v performance GPU out of these four

    Alright, I've finally managed to read through all the posts :D, they're all appreciated. And to answer some questions and clarification. I'm based in Australia, not in Ohio as some have suggested. Because of this, GPU prices are really premium out this way (A brand new 1070 is still $500-$650)...

    The best price v performance GPU out of these four

    Looking to buy a solid gpu for 1080p. Looking to play Assassins Creed Odyssey at near max settings @60fps and other games (more in the classics) Rome 2 and Dragon Age. Would just like some suggestions on the best in the price range under $500 AUD Cheers! I used to have a 1070 ti about a year ago...

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    Well the cpu now seems to be running effectively, it now stays on 4.4ghz and I've got high performance on in power settings which seems to keep it at that. If I have balanced on it fluctuates. But now I've run into another problem on Inquisition. First it was high cpu usage in certain areas...

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    Temperatures seem to be running quite well, but I've noticed even while playing game such as rome 2 or Inquisition under load it stays on 4.3ghz constantly. Not that it's bad, but i'm wondering what it requires to go beyond 4.3

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    I've enabled xmp which is good (I've noticed how fast things are now, especially after the system refresh), i've also got turbo boost and speed shift enabled but for some reason when I check the bios my cpu frequency seems to be lock between 4.2-4.3ghz. Any reason for this to be happening?

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    Both ram sticks are in the same coloured slots. I didn't do a clean install but everything was fine until something must have updated or collided, so is the fresh start option the same thing? Well I refreshed windows and it seems to be okay now. But the cpu clock doesn't seem to be going above...

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    I think I may have just figured this out. Earlier today I played Rome 2 and everything was running perfectly. I then decided later to put the mobo driver disc in to see if there was anything else that needed updating, it then finished. I then went to play rome 2 again and now it's very suffering...

    High Cpu Usage and low fps on DA:i after hardware upgrade Mobo, cpu, ram

    Hi there, you may have seen me before on another thread about my hardware changes. Changed: Mobo: From ga-b75m to z270 Cpu: From 3770 to 7700k Ram: From 8gb ddr3 to 16gb ddr3 to now 16gb ddr4 So on my old system when I was running a 1070ti and 3770 with 8gb ram (one stick) I could max out...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Alright, well I picked up a Logitech g213 vkeyboard for a good price and am loving it at the moment, along with a g300s mouse which completes it. I'm still looking at ssds and I've seen they have a kingstons 250gb ssd for $65, whether it just as good. I'm mainly looking to put my os onto it and...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Alright I'll think about it, there's a corsair le200 120gb ssd for $67 which may be all I need, but I'll consider the samsung one. As for the keyboard well I'm not looking to spend over $100 really, as I don't think it would be worth it, for me anyway. That's why the g213 or MK2 look promising.

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Hey again, I've been looking around at ssds and was wondering if the WD blue SSD drive 250gb is any good consdering its about $20 cheaper than an evo. I've taken into account that I need to buy a bracket and another sata cable which will still be cheaper than an evo. One other thing, I was also...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Yeah I know, it is so much better than paying premium prices for one just because it is "new". I'm from Australia, and I've checked all my local pc stores and they're sold out of all single 8gb ram sticks and I wasn't going to pay $210 for 16gb of ram. So I checked ebay and had a look at some...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Alright i'll do the ram first then, thank you. I've just been looking and for some reason they mainly sell 1600mhz ddr3 ram with some 1333 mhz ones but with the 8gb split up into 2x4gb. I'm fnding it hard to get a single 8gb stick of 1333, but I'll keep looking (I swear it's like looking for a...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Well I was looking at the Samsung Evo 250gb SSD SATA 3 for $96, but is another 8g of ram going to make a good difference? It costs around 60-70 for it, but I notice when playing Inquisition on my 1070ti (got one for a bargain price and barely used it's great) the ram usage on task manager is...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Alright cheers, I'll probably be picking up an SSD in the coming week or so.

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Cheers! So when I do get the SSD and install it in, how do I make the OS run off the SSD? Would I need to reinstall the OS? Or can you just swap it over from the Hard drive? I was also looking at the possibility of getting more ram, maybe an extra 4gb or something, if that's even worth it? Plus...

    Best Buy between these two used cards!

    Alright thanks I'll look into the SSD. The GPU is fixed now, appeared to be a driver issue. Apart from that, all is well, thankyou for the help!
