    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    That is what it is and that's what i had on my 2700x. I was unable to make this setup work stable under literally ANY conditions. It was freezing and bsoding for no reason even after replacing components to new units. OP just has to face that and alter hardware choices, there is no way to fix...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    I didn't run memtest86 as it takes too long to provide results which still can be inaccurate. In normal cases BSOD messages are more than enough to properly pinpoint cause of hardware issues. These bsod messages point to faulty memory or memory controller. I replaced both to new units: ram and...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    I was avoiding that to last moment too as stuff was top class at the time (except for ram, because of inflated prices i didn't go with any better sticks). x470 taichi ultimate is an amazing motherboard, i loved it and by visuals i prefer it over my current x570 taichi, 2700x also top cpu of 2xxx...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    I already told you what to do: replace cpu and motherboard, preferably also ram, there is literally no other solution to that frigging hell. I went through it and i know how irritating that is, i also didn't have money to do things instantly, this hell in my case lasted over half of year until i...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    Initially when problems started to happen i was sure it is related to memory and it wasn't as i replaced ram with other model from QVL and problems were still happening. System freezes i narrowed to built-in wlan card so in your case may be not happening as your mobo doesn't have such module. I...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    Then i have a bad news for you, this particular ram+motherboard bundle for some reason will not work for you at all under any circumstances and unfortunately i'm telling that from experience. I had the same, exactly same bsods like you have and freezes/system hangs/lockups on 2700x+x470 taichi...

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    First confirm if you have random freezes/system hangs?

    Idle BSODs on 3700x

    Do you also get random freezes, hard locks? If yes then i have a bad news for you.

    DOOM Eternal Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    I can confirm with my own experience running doom on fx-6300+radeon r9 380 was more than just playable experience, especially on vulkan. I enjoyed the game a lot and will wait for decent discount on eternal. Proof:

    Leopold FC660M how to use F9 to access the Bios?

    It is not Fn+9, it is just F9. Fn key is an abomination which came from damned laptop keyboards. I wish keyboard manufacturers stop adding that dumb key onto normal keyboard layouts because it simply doesn't belong to normal keyboards.

    Khronos Group Releases Vulkan Ray Tracing

    For that we need proper hardware which is not available yet. RTX2xxx is too weak to offer visuals and framerate which you could call motion.

    PS5 finally being showed off Tomorrow

    To be honest marketing of both consoles is wrong and nintendo is the best on this matter. Since ps3/xbox360 era both companies for some odd reason advertise their non-upgradeable systems as pc killers in terms of performance and visual quality which they never were and will never be. Nintendo...

    Everest Sets Stretch Goal for a Midnight Black Edition of its Innovative Keyboard

    Has all features i need from keyboard but with two downsides: numpad as add-on (i may live with it) and these high a f keycaps make keyboard unusable to me.

    3600x 3700x , 3800x vs 9900K for gaming

    If you are making decision between these and 9900k i would choose 3900x which is still cheaper than 9900k, has 12c/24t making it more powerful, more versatile cpu with platform which has much bigger upgrade options.

    Can i install regular android apps on an android go?

    Personally i did buy this phone only to have a device for what it supposed to be made for: phone calls and sms, internet features are far aside thing for me. I do not even know how much ram this device has, simply i do not care. Anyway i have few applications installed on it: opera touch...

    Some games are crashing on my PC

    Amount of ram is not a problem. 8GB may be not enough in some games at some settings but this alone can't be reason for games crashing. In the worst case you would be getting stuttering caused by insufficient amount of ram, in such situation you need to lower some settings to free up some ram...

    AMD Releases the Radeon Adrenalin Edition 20.2.2 Drivers

    Yes, i saw changelog but did you try it on your own gpu and game didn't launch for you? If yes then did you try on other driver version or have you tried to troubleshoot by following error code which you can find in event viewer? Changelog says "doom may..." so it means it doesn't have to have...

    Western Digital WD2003FYYS RE4 Hard Drive 2TB 7200RPM 3.5" Internal SATA WD? Are these any good Sata drive

    This drive is a decent enterprise grade hdd. All depends on if you are buying it new or used. If new then all will be fine, if used then there is a lot of factors to consider: age, hours used, if it comes with any warranty from a seller, if it is still on WD's warranty and so on.

    AMD Releases the Radeon Adrenalin Edition 20.2.2 Drivers

    Poll is awkward. If user owns 5000 series amd gpu, and you are asking strictly about 5000 amd's gpu how the third option makes any sense? Even if user has multiple PCs with amd and nvidia gpus third option still makes no sense as you are asking about experience with 5000 amd gpus. In the same...

    How do you actually run Crysis in software mode?

    Use DDU to uninstall gpu driver and load into normal mode os. You will have microsoft basic display adapter driver installed and this more or less equals software mode. Here you can see what you can get that way:
