    PC noise level; need to make this quieter

    I'm on a mission to reduce the overall noise that my PC makes. I use a Corsair Carbide 540 Air case with three 140mm Corsair LL RGB fans and a Corsair H100i V2 with 2x 120mm SP120L fans. I think the main culprit of noise is the radiator and it's fans. Sometimes, particularly when gaming, en...

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    So, at default, it is sending 1.4v to the chip, especially when idling. That's why I'm looking into this mess. If I tune it and go down to 1.275, I can get all cores up to 4.2 Ghz, which reduces all temps as well. thesmokingman Would you say that Ryzen Master voltage readings suffer from the...

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    I let HWInfo run for a few hours last night while I was doing things like gaming, editing, etc. Here is what I have: As you can see, I have two cores that hit 4.5 Ghz, two that hit 4.4 Ghz, 5 that hit 4.3 Ghz. The rest are lower than that. I was doing a ton of stuff, from gaming to editing...

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    This is my first time overclocking anything. For good reason. Up until now, I don't think I've had a processor that has numbers that act so weird. I've never really had to overclock as I was happy with the stock speeds and general working of the chip. However, while Zen 2 are incredible...

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    I guess the only advantage is to keep voltage under 1.3v at all times, instead of letting it ride at the 1.4v level, where it seems to be at every time I check. Very new at this stuff, so I'm not sure if I'm thinking about this correctly.

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    I'm not much of an overclocker, but my system was running hot with stock settings (1.4v), so I started to do some research and found a detailed post on what to do to manually set clock speed and voltage. Right now I'm at 1.275 volts and seeing stable 4.2 Ghz speeds with temperatures not...

    RGB Setup

    Ended up getting 3 140mm LL series fans and came with the Hub and Lighting Node Pro. They look great! This is what I wanted to achieve, so thanks for the input. I might need to get 2 120mm fans to replace the stock ones on my H100i v2. If I do replace them, I plan to just plug them in to the...

    RGB Setup

    Got it. And why do you prefer 3x 120mm fans instead of 2x 140mm? I thought bigger fans move more air and are quieter. Is it just aesthetics?

    RGB Setup

    Thanks. So Corsair's system basically works with Corsair hardware. Given that I only have 2 addressable headers, what hardware would I need to address more than 2 (non-Corsair) fans? Is that even possible? Based on what you say, it seems that the Commander Pro can do everything a Lighting Node...

    RGB Setup

    I have Corsair Carbine Air 540 and in it, an Aorus X570 Ultra. For the longest time I've been wanting to swap out the fans that came with the case and add some RGB ones, but Corsair nomenclature for everything is very confusing. Right now, I'd like to add 3 140mm RGB fans to the case and my...

    Struggling to decide on memory for 3700x build

    Not yet. Getting my 2070S next week and will start playing around with it. It does, which is why I wanted to get this done now.

    Struggling to decide on memory for 3700x build

    So I got the 2x16 3600 c16 G Skill Trident Z Neo sticks from Newegg. Happy to report they work perfectly out of the box with an Aorus x570 Ultra and 3700x.

    Does anyone have a 3700x boosting to 4.4 Ghz?

    I can't seem to push mine past 4.3 Ghz on a couple of the cores. Tried Cinebench, Battlefield V, no cigar. My averages range between 3.6 and 4.1. What could be causing that?

    Struggling to decide on memory for 3700x build

    Thanks. Yes, I was actually on Newegg when they first appeared after a page refresh. I took too long to pull the trigger and they were gone. Targeting the 2x16 3600 C16 @ $200.

    Struggling to decide on memory for 3700x build

    I have an incoming 3700x and an Aorus Ultra x570 board that will be here later this week. I'm struggling to find adequate memory for it as I keep reading so many different stories... I currently have the Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 C15 (2x8 GB) kit and according to what I've read I want at...
