DDR5 is full of false advertisement, bad marketing and a lot of missunderstandings.
This is the reality of the current situation.
There is no single rank 32GB DDR5 modules currently.
This means that if you want 64GB of DDR5 memory you have two options.
Get a 2x32GB dual rank modules.
at the end I discovered why my OC is unstable.
after an entire day passed benching and trying I found the coulprit.
CSTATES makes my OC completely unstable when using AVX256 with Prime95.
Using sync all cores 5.1/4.0 with AVX offset 5 and OCTVB +2.
those are my settings:
even if CSTATES is...
my 12900K reaches 85°C during rendering at 22°C ambient temp.
During summer ambient temp can go up to 32°C this means that my CPU should hipotetically reach 95°C during rendering.
Will I damage my CPU by rendering in summer?
I have 4K euros of components getting the dust because there is no DDR5 in the entire europe.
My "refund window" is expired and I can't even ask for a refund.
Shops here says that there will be no DDR5 for months, a lot of months.
I have spent a lot of money for the components and I will not...
is there someone who have experience of Corsair HX1200i PSU?
Is it good enough for a single GPU system?
What about quality and reliability?
I will use it with a 3080ti and a 12900k OC.
I know that 1200w is too much for that system but hx1200i is the only one I have available now.
I'm going to build a new Alder Lake system with an high end GPU.
Is my Corsair AX860i PSU too old for a new system considering that i'm using it in my current system since 5 years?
Should I replace it for something better?
I'm a big fan of AMD but history teaches that AMD can win only when Intel sleep on its success.
At the end, Intel is too big for AMD to compete with, and when Intel pushes the accelerator AMD is always behind.
This don't want to be a trolling thread but as a hardware junk since more than 25...
It's clear that X86 is a dying platform.
ARM is growing too fast for X86 to compete.
do you think that AMD will switch to ARM soon?
I have an Acer Nitro XV273K 4K display HDR400 monitor 144Hz.
At 4K at 120Hz monitor should run at 4:2:2 and suffer of chrome subsampling.
At 4K 60Hz monitor should run at 4:4:4
Why I can't tell the difference with this test image in the two modes?
everyone says that this image...
I'm running a 5930K@4.2GHz with a 2080Ti.
I have a 4K/144Hz monitor and I'm not interested in ultra high refresh rate but I'm worried about low 1%.
If I need to be sincere my CPU was enough for 4K gaming but with 3080 I feel that is a bit too old even for 4K.
I would really like to...
We have 11GB cards since 1080Ti, do you think that 10GB will be enough for 4K gaming in 2021 and 2022?
Will next gen games uses more VRAM since the new consoles have 16GB?
Is 3080 a safe bet or just a card to skip due to the "low memory"?
Luciferin is a generic term for the light-emitting compound found in organisms that generate bioluminescence like Fireflies and Glow Worms.
Firefly Luciferin is a Java Fast Screen Capture PC software designed for Glow Worm Luciferin firmware,

I have an Acer XV273K monitor.
It is an HDR400 monitor (so crap HDR) but it have a great 10 bit panel, the same panel used in the HDR1000 monitors from Acer/Asus without FALD.
Sometimes HDR contents looks overbright, sometimes looks good, sometimes I loose many details with a sort of...
I'm using an Acer XV273K in 4K, 120Hz and HDR and GSYNC.
When using all those features my monitors goes down to 8bit + FRC.
Isn't this a condition when chrome subsampling should arise?
Is this test enough for testing chrome subsampling?
I see no "errors" in this image.
I don't know why people still continue to say that HDR 400 is useless but I don't agree with this.
I have an Acer XV273K monitor HDR400 and I can say that on my monitor enabling HDR improves the general quality by a wide margin.
HDR enables color management from the app and the color are...
I see that most people uses DisplayCAL over the XRite i1 Profiler even using the xrite i1 display pro colorimeter.
What is the sense of using a third party software when xrite give its own software?
Measurements are so different between those two software.
Even the white point measurement...
What is an average brightness and color uniformity on an average monitor?
Is a Delta E of <= 6 and a brightness <= 20% accross the monitor good?
What are the monitor's manufacturer "tolerance" for delta E and brightness uniformity accross the screen?
I'm trying to correctly calibrate my wide gamut
Acer Nitro XV273K
using an X-Rite i1 display pro colorimeter and i1 profiler software.
Something strange happen on this monitor that I never experienced before on other monitors.
I can easily achieve 6500K moving the Red or Blu gain but...
Many expensive HDR Monitors are wide gamut and in windows or in many app some colors are really oversaturaded.
In games too.
Is there a way to solve this problem ?
RGB emulation does not solve the problem, mitigate it but does not solve it.
Is it possible that all modern expensive...
Is 144Hz monitors better than 60Hz one at around 60fps?
Is response time better anyway even at 60fps?
Have an rtx2080ti here and considering the upgrade of the Acer Predator XB271HK 4k 60hz with the

I'm playing non fast games like action rpg and at 4k I...
First gen and second gen threadripper was a great opportunity for AMD to get enthusiast on their HEDT segment.
Many many enthusiast are waiting for a good threadripper with good single core and multi thread performance,
so the 3rd gen was the CPU that all people was waiting for BUT...
guys I have a serious doubt about my rig, I don't know if it depends on the GPU or the Monitor or what else.
when I connect "some things" to the PC,
a headphone, a USB gamepad, a microUSB stick, or sometimes even if I connect a USB charger to the wall near the PC socket,
monitor blinks for a...
No one is interested in the Dell UP2718Q?
It's 4K, HDR10, 384 dimming zones FALD, premium uniformity correction,
pratically every color gamut you can imagine, factory calibrated and it support the best in class hardware calibration to have perfect calibration even outside color managed...
I am waiting for the HDR standard stabilization to buy a new monitor, possibly a 4K 120Hz+ monitor.
In the mean time I am using my good old Eizo S2433W with a DTP94 colorimeter.
The monitor is pretty color accurate since it beats the UDACT test without any problem.
I calibrated the...
This is not a particular useful thread but just a way to say Thanks to Corsair for their constant help and support.
On average, I assemble five complete rigs every years, for me, my relatives, my friends and collegues and sometimes I sell my parts to them to buy new components.
I started using the Hydro Series since 2015.
Since 2015 I always had a lot of trust in corsair products so I continued to buy and RMA AIOs with broken pump.
I bought 2 H80i GT, the first one has been sent back to corsair for RMA three times the second one has never seen an RMA yet but it...
