    5570 and 5770 problems

    That might be the problem. It might be time to get at least a 7950 or 290 those cards are still supported and can be found on the cheap. Unless you want to get something newer like a Polaris card. The RX 570 would completely fix that problem and you would better FPS too.

    ADATA XPG Spectrix S40G 1 TB M.2 NVMe

    The 8200 Pro uses Phison does it not? This is the first time I have heard about Realtek's 8 channel controller. Is there any other NVME drives that have that controller?

    5570 and 5770 problems

    I am wondering if those GPUs support DX12 which is WIndows 10 API. Trying to upgrade to 1903 might be the problem. Have you checked AMD's site for driver support for those cards?

    Some question about Gigabyte RX 580 graphics card?

    Yeah that was my thought process as well even though I have not been able to get a 580 to that speed.

    Some question about Gigabyte RX 580 graphics card?

    Look at the 3rd pic the GPU clock is at 2000 MHZ and the memory clock is 2250 MHZ. I do agree with you though that the card should be fine for the OP.

    Some question about Gigabyte RX 580 graphics card?

    Based on your 3rd attachment it would seem that the data is wrong as I don't know if a 580 that can run at a 2000MHZ clock.

    Current Sales, Bundles, Giveaways

    Understood I guess they have every AAA game to play. I have about 8 pages of Humble keys but the thing I like about it is that you get good games for every genre. The Trove is nice too especially if you build gaming PCs for clients. There are some really nice games in there like Torchlight and...

    Current Sales, Bundles, Giveaways

    I might get it to play Gears of War 5. You are right if you play one game at a time and finish it and I know what you mean there are a ton of games I am waiting to play too. Not that I don't like it but Humble Monthly is currently my favourite subscription service.

    What are you playing?

    AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Beats Intel Core i9-10980XE by 24% in 3DMark Physics

    If you are talking about me I class an enthusiast as anyone who has any of those points and you did help me out when I posted about the Intel 660P and you responded with Crucial and Sabrent drives.

    Current Sales, Bundles, Giveaways

    Understood the only thing I don't like it is that you don't actually that you own the game(s) that you play.

    Intel and Wargaming Join Forces to Deliver Ray Tracing to World of Tanks

    Um as far as I know Mantle essentially became DX12 as all of it's benefits were integrated into that API.

    Intel files an Anti-trust Case Against SoftBank-owned Tech Firm

    Was there not a lawsuit against Texas Instruments from Intel touting the same thing a few years ago?

    For me an enthusiast is anyone into a particular product or industry that does things like what we do here and I will list them. 1. Have theoretical conversations about products 2. Help the uninitiated with their problems 3. Have at least something from the current gen (NVME expansion card)...

    Two more questions about case fans and temps.

    I agree he would have to remove that graphite pad ( which I hear are not that good) but I was quoting an AIO more for the design of the case.

    Which games haven't you finished yet?

    I hear you on that I played the game until Lui Bei died (of natural causes) then I was like who can replace him. My retinue got all messed up because none of my generals were in the green but all red and then of course the recruitment option. Oh look I can recruit 5 units to my general. Needless...

    Two more questions about case fans and temps.

    With a case like that the best thing to do for your CPU is get a AIO. With the front being totally cut off and the bottom having a PSU shroud it would be difficult for any fan (regardless of specs) to give you a better experience in terms of air flow. With an AIO (max I would get is 240) you...

    What's the best bang for the buck out there now?

    I purchased a Deepon E2 several years ago for $199 and it works pretty good. The other one I have seen is the Pixma. I think there is one that was crowd funded that has 2 4K displays and sells for around $400 US.

    Anime Nation

    Escaflowne is my favourite Anime but X the series was nice too. If you are into music Gundam 7 (i think ) was a great watch too. I do have a soft spot for Gundam though especially Gundam Wing.

    Which games haven't you finished yet?

    The worst mistake CA made was releasing Three Kingdoms after TWWH 1&2. There is so much more to do in those games vs 3K. For me there was also the fact that your generals die over time. I know that the games are Grand strategy but I totally agree with everything you said about the way the game...

    How to protect hard drives with a password?

    Windows has a function called bit locker (i think it depends on your version of Windows). If not there are plenty of encryption programs available to use both free and paid.

    where do you buy games ?

    I could say the exact same thing. I was salivating for the release of Total War Shogun 2. Went to the local Future Shop (they don't exist anymore) got my Day one copy. Spend 30 minutes reading the box and looking at the pics. I get the first of 3 DVDs and "Please install Steam". I was so upset...

    Best Gaming RAM

    I find that my favourite RAM is Gskill. I have 48GB of Gskill Ripjaws 4 3000 MHZ 15-15-15-36 and they are usually the cheapest (with good timings) you can get other than some Team Group RAM that has also worked with all of my systems. Corsair RAM is usually pretty good but as someone said with...

    Razer Announces Raptor Monitor: 27" IPS, 2560 x 1440, 144 Hz, HDR 400, AMD FreeSync

    I have heard nothing but good things about price/performance of Pixio monitors. VA panels are meh for me. I have always prefered IPS especially in 4K. I had the exact same QNIX 2710 (100 HZ too) I do agree on the state of VA panels being the same range in price regardless of who makes them. as...
