    HELP! Is My Monitor Getting Ready to Die, or is it something else?

    This happened to me. Contacted BenQ, they told me to replace the panel and enquired if it was under warranty, it wasn't. They then instructed me to buy a new monitor rather than order a new panel as both cost the same. That's what I did. Years later I became aware that some of these monitors...

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    41st Day Report: Temperatures are good, in fact they are better than good, don't know this is because of lower ambient temperature because of winter season. Also I have played less games during the last forty days. With a simple fan curve like below, temperatures never went above 73C (worst...

    Thanks. I have never used Dynamic Fidelity FX before though I have used CAS in reshade in other games. Would you say my DFidelity FX percentage of 80% (Min resolution) is good enough threshold between quality and performance? If I may ask which one would YOU prefer out of the two I posted. I...

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    Yes, keeping temp at 60C too causes the same issue. 25-35days it just keeps coming back. I am from a very hot and humid part of a very hot country. I am able to lock temperature at 70C (while gaming) @100% fan but never lower (maybe 69C in winter maybe), this is not practical. I am making this...

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    Yes, thank you laszlo. I will repaste exactly as you say, please do answer the following: #1 Your method of repasting? (small drop in the middle, spread etc and amount to use) #2 Other precautions/thoughts... Also, I would say that for the results we might have to wait another month.

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    From later part of may onwards till now I have tried almost every method, the spread, the drop, the line. This is bad it wouldn't even burn up and die, no closure!

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    Yes I did just like you said but still after a month temperature becomes high. So what should I do next; Repaste with the same thermal paste (Noctua NT-H1) but put very little amount of it? Also keep the .5mm thermal pad? How?

    Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580

    No did not modify the retention mechanism, also did not screw tight as well. The only changes are thermal paste, thermal pad and thermal pad thickness. Only once did I use an extreme amount of thermal paste in desperation but on other occassions I used appropriate amount of thermal paste.
