    New nvme drive causing WHEA Error BSODs

    I installed the drive on another PC and tried to copy files to it to test. It gets to a certain point and suddenly stops/errors out, so looks like it's a bad drive.

    New nvme drive causing WHEA Error BSODs

    Anyone else run into this issue? I have a Rocket 4 Plus I just installed and would get WHEA BSODs constantly. Putting back the old Inland nvme drive resolves the issue. Guessing the drive needs to be RMA'd, but wanted to crosss reference with others to see if maybe theres an open issue with...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Can't say I've noticed this type of behavior with mine. Tho I'll be sure to be on the lookout for it. I have a 38GN950-B, not the GL950-G

    So who else ordered a Ryzen 5000 series CPU?

    Just picked up a 5800x. Gave up on a 5900x/5950x for now. I've got another system to get up and running with the 3700x it's replacing. I don't really anticipate needing more than that for my uses, but I can always pick up a 59xx later down the road if that ever changes or perhaps just upgrade to...

    Got a 12/21 estimate on mine. Ordered 9:30pm PST.

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    Bingo. It's because Ryzen is much more sensitive to memory performance that you are seeing a larger difference.

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    No, the number of memory ranks relating to more performance in this case is because of bank interleaving.

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    2 single rank dimms, 1 dimm per channel = single rank. 4 single rank dimms, 2 dimms per channel = dual rank. He removed 1 dimm from each channel, making it single rank.

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    Yes, which would turn it from dual rank to single rank. All things equal, dual rank configurations will outperform single rank. The performance difference varies, but it has been the case for a very long time. You would achieve the same performance with 2 dual rank dimms as 4 single rank dimms...

    Fractal Design Meshify C Black for $59.99 + $5.99 shipping @ Newegg

    No issues with mine. Solid build quality, no misaligned holes. Front mesh pops out for cleaning if you remove the bottom filter and reach under the front panel. There will be a locking tab there you push to pop the front mesh out independently.

    Battlefield 2042

    Loved the Battlefield series up to BF4. Didn't care much for BF1 and the was disappointed with how they handled BFV. I'll be cautiously optimistic with this one and will set my expectations low if it's still the same "team" working on it as BFV.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Not just AMD fans. Many of us who don't pick sides but buy the high end GPUs are plenty excited too. More competition, more innovation and better pricing. Can't wait to pick up a 6900XT.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    Yup and RT isnt in a position right now speed wise with anything to be a must have feature. As long as it has usable RT performance (and it does), it will let me mess with RT settings in games that benefit from it. If the landscape changes significantly in the next few years, so be it and I'll...

    AMD’s RX 6000 GPUs to Boost Perf With Ryzen 5000 CPUs via Smart Memory Access

    The 6900XT slide had rage mode and smart access on. It's probably going to be such a small difference overall that it would really only matter for benchmarks.

    AMD’s RX 6000 GPUs to Boost Perf With Ryzen 5000 CPUs via Smart Memory Access

    I actually got a gsync compatible/freesync premium pro monitor to replace my gsync one for this reason. If the reviews even remotely hold up to the AMD presentation, I'm pretty certain I'll be picking up a 6900xt.. if I can get my hands on one that is.

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Yup. Nothing worse than having money on hand, ready to go and not being able to buy what you've been waiting for in a reasonable timeframe.

    Doom Eternal

    Slowly moving through it in nightmare as I don't really have time to binge play lately. It's definitely more difficult and I'm loving it.

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Yep. Didn't have a choice but I like what I'm seeing from AMD. I'd be in for a 6900XT pending reviews.

    A question for my Pascal gamer friends

    Feel the same way. I also recently got a new monitor so I was really excited to get a new GPU. Since acquiring one has been difficult and my titan xp handles what I play just fine, I'm no longer in a rush to get one. I'll see what AMD has to offer and weigh it against the 20gb 3080 when they...

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Damn. Yeah, I'll return it to costco and order a new one. I really like the monitor so hopefully the 2nd one is better.

    LG 38GL950G - 37.5" 3840x1600/G-Sync/175Hz

    Ugh. I picked up a 38GN950-B. Beautiful monitor. Unfortunately this one has to go back because it has a dead pixel right smack in the middle of the screen. :(

    Who is buying a 3090?

    I ended up buying a new monitor so now it doesn't matter whether I go AMD or NV. So let's go AMD, show me what you got!

    Who is buying a 3090?

    What a shitshow. Either way, based on the "reviews", I have reconsidered and will wait for the 20GB 3080 or AMD's entry instead.

    Nvidia Experience always exaggerates

    He should definitely check his airflow as you said. The game uses the GPU pretty hard. My Titan XP (running stock clocks) also hits 83c with the fan pegged to 100% easily in XIV tho if left uncapped. The blower cooler just sucks unfortunately.

    Nvidia Experience always exaggerates

    XIV makes GPUs run hot, nothing wrong with your card esp since it has a blower cooler. Best to limit your frame rate or set your power limit lower if you're playing for extended periods.

    E-waste... LMAO. I don't think anyone else here is worried about their e-waste when buying video cards.

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    Honestly I'd keep my Titan XP if I didn't need to replace another GPU. Since I'm buying anyway, I figured I might as well get a 3090 and move the Titan XP to the other PC.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Someone on here recently sent in their waterblocked Titan RTX and they replaced it. Just make sure you put all the stock parts back and they'll take it.

    Picking up a 3090 on release day (Hopefully). Will be a good upgrade from my Titan XP.

    Occasional POST failure - G.Skill NEO, Ryzen 3900X, Asus PRIME x570

    Is it a 32gb kit by chance? I had the same issue on my X570 Elite when going from 16gb to 32gb. 2x8 was perfectly fine. Both 4x8 and 2x16 would cause random post failures and bios resets. What fixed it for me was setting the SOC voltage to 1.15. HWI reads SVI2TFN at 1.13 on this setting and...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I think you'll be fine. I have a 3700x + Titan XP and the max i've ever seen drawn from the wall is well under 500w
