    Can we do something about Radeon multi monitor power draw?

    I've never noticed this until recently... Well I did read the reviews, but to see it in real life is disconcerting. I consider myself a power miser, although my rig doesn't reflect that well, but still, I undervolt my 2700X and underclock+undervolt my 5700XT. I'm fairly happy running in Power...

    Is coil whine common for high end AMD graphics card?

    I bought Sapphire 5700XT Nitro+ last month, happy the performance, even if it's a downgrade from my old RTX 2080, but hey, a full on red and red and to vote with my wallet about my dissatisfaction with the green and blue team. Anyway, I noticed that on idle and in desktop the card have an...

    Many issues with MSI B450M + Ryzen 3700X [help needed]

    Been awhile, busy with life until my PC started acting up badly, wondering the resident tech gurus can help. I'm using MSI B450M with Ryzen 3700X, and just bought last week LG 29WK600 to replace my LG 25UM58P. I'm very up to date with drivers and BIOS on my system, and for a week now I've been...

    3700X temp not showing on various hardware monitoring

    Just curious. CPUID HWMonitor not showing, CAM not showing, also HWinfo. Is this normal? As in maybe the software aren't up to date yet? The BIOS recognized the temp though. I use MSI B450M Mortar and I used to set my fan curves on the BIOS. However, MSI BIOS update for Ryzen 3000 butchered the...

    Ryzen 3000 on B450/X470

    The Ryzen 3000 is just around the corner, and about the exact moment the Ryzen 2000 is coming about last year, I asked whether my old motherboard (B350) can support the Ryzen 2000. Obviously, upgrading to the B450 and X470 last year is a no brainer, better memory support and better VRMs are...

    [weird] Ryzen + Windows 10 power saving mode consumes more power

    So... This is weird... I've been using Ryzen 2700X for a while now and I switched power plans using a Windows 10 app called PowerSwitcher, basically putting the power plans shortcut on the taskbar. I did this because I wanted the lowest possible watt usage from my PC during low load sessions...

    Anyone knows where or how to check compatibility of case, motherboard and memory clearance for AIO radiators? My case (Fractal Define Mini C) and memory (Corsair Vengeance RGB) is incompatible with 240mm radiators. There's only enough clearance for fans or radiator without fans. I've been...

    [help] Reflashing PowerColor Vega 56 BIOS back to stock

    Hi all, first time poster and first time Radeon owner. Due to local mining crash, lots of people sells their Radeons en masse and dropped the price by a lot.
