    Phison E16 / Sabrent Rocket 4.0 Failures?

    Pretty sure most Phison-based SSDs are just reference design PCBs with each company's branding and firmware slapped on top. Sabrent doesn't actually manufacture them last I checked.

    HP Aero 13.3" (400nits) with Ryzen 7 5800U (Zen 3), 16GBs, 512GB... $683

    Did that last week after I got it back from one of HP's repair centers. Reset it and turned off a few settings that could allow for power draw while off. Still exhibits the same thing. C'est la vie.

    Absolutely. First thing I did when I received it was turn off hybrid sleep, fast startup, modern sleep, S3/S5, etc.

    It is. I have, unfortunately. It's as fun as you can imagine. Yep. No and no, since those typically cause the device to be in a higher-power state. Not the end of the world but figured it was worth mentioning.

    HP Aero 13.3" (400nits) with Ryzen 7 5800U (Zen 3), 16GBs, 512GB... $683

    Unfortunately the motherboard on this uses about 2-3% of battery per 24 hours even when fully off, which is far higher than any other laptop I've seen. Small downside for decent laptop though.

    For 100% stable system, should I get RAM w/ highest SPD frequency and ignore XMP?

    Going by the QVL is your best bet, but just because a stick isn't listed on there doesn't mean it won't work or that it's not stable. Look at it more from a business perspective that ensures compatibility. There's no reason not to use XMP, but to answer your other question.. Yes, there are...

    Why though.. Windows 11 "Shell Infrastructure Host" high CPU usage

    Although it doesn't show it in the Command line field (presumably because Process Explorer isn't run as admin), we can tell by the Autostart Location field that the service that svchost.exe process ran is UserManager (same on my Windows 10 machine). At least there's nothing out of the ordinary...

    Why though.. Windows 11 "Shell Infrastructure Host" high CPU usage

    Perfect. Just need one more bit of info. By default Process Explorer sorts the process in a tree view, with every indentation being an nth level child process. With the columns sorted by CPU, however, that indentation disappears. In the screenshot you showed, the sihost.exe properties window...

    Why though.. Windows 11 "Shell Infrastructure Host" high CPU usage

    When its CPU usage is high, download and run Process Explorer, then find sihost.exe in the list that corresponds to the instance that has the high CPU usage. I presume there will only be one instance. If it has a parent process, such as svchost.exe, double click the parent and let us know what...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    That's up to the video player and how you have it configured. If you use MPC-HC's equivalent of "touch window from inside", the player will scale the video up/down but only after madVR's cropping has already been applied, ensuring that no actual video content (post-black bar detection) is lost...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    I think there's some misunderstanding of how madVR's black bar detection feature works. It dynamically removes black bars from the video stream by cropping them on frame-by-frame basis. With the feature enabled, videos that contain black bars will have the black bars removed. It doesn't remove...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    Can't say for certain as I haven't seen that option. At least as far as I know, MPC-HC (and maybe MPC-BE?) has come bundled with LAV Filters for many years now, so I honestly would have expected you to see that what I saw, albeit perhaps in a different place. Since I'm curious, can you share a...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    There are no black borders on the IMAX shots. The content of the video (16:9) matches the size of the container (16:9). I don't have a 21:9 display but with cropping enabled, simulating it by resizing my player causes IMAX shots to have no black bars on the top/bottom and the non-IMAX shots...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    MPC-HC and its forks have the feature as well (Num 1/9 by default), but cropping at the renderer level prevents needing to do that with each file and appropriately shifts subtitles as well. Plus, without cropping, content that has changing aspect ratios (Interstellar comes to mind) throws a...

    madVR black bar cropping for ultrawide not working the way I want it to

    Assuming you're using LAV video decoder, change the Hardware Decoder setting to DXVA2 (copy-back, don't think it works with native): Close and reopen the file (to rebuild the filter graph) and cropping should work. You should now see a line just above the "scale" line (if present) detailing...

    100% GPU but low temperature, frequency and FPS

    Based on everything I've read you most likely have a hardware failure. I suspect there's a blown resistor/inductor somewhere. Any chance you can take photos of the PCB?

    Can't data migrate bootable Win10 pro from NVMe SSD to SATA SSD

    Is any AHCI/SATA controller or device listed in the device manager when you do boot into safe mode? Depending on your motherboard it might require a different AHCI driver (assuming you have the SATA mode set to AHCI in UEFI).

    Enable the Microsoft AHCI driver, either before or after cloning. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci Start -> 0 (for drivers, this means it's a required driver for booting) Alternately, you might be able to boot into safe mode, which might detect that there's a new...

    No way to make offline accounts to Windows?

    Even if you're online, you can try to login to the Microsoft account "asdfasdf" with whatever password you want, which will fail and give you the option to create an offline account. I think this method works with any valid Microsoft account so long as the login attempt fails.

    6900xt HDMI issue

    That's most likely it. The monitor probably has incorrect EDID data (I think older ASUS monitors are known for this). If changing the resolution in UEFI doesn't help, I believe a DP->HDMI adapter should.

    6900xt HDMI issue

    What GPU model exactly? Are you using a modded GPU bios? What CPU are you using (asking in case it has an integrated GPU)? What motherboard are you using, and what BIOS version is it on? Is the GPU in the first PCIe x16 slot? Does it work when you enable/disable CSM? What the specific model of...

    Is AMD.com still selling GPUs?

    US store's queue begins ~8:45 AM CST, store opens ~9:05 AM CST, all GPUs are sold out by ~9:15 AM CST. Canadian store's queue begins the same time but GPUs don't get sold out as quickly.

    Spec sheet is the same. I doubt there's any difference aside them being sold in different regions, which Samsung typically differentiates with different ending characters (F27T452 is not the complete model number, would be something like F27T452FQU or LF27T452FQUXEN). Power connector might be...

    Shouldn't 850W be enough? Faulty PSU?

    Just received my replacement Seasonic PX-650 and it works like a charm, so I have hope for OP (assuming EVGA also had a similar design flaw that they fixed in later revisions of that PSU).
  34. S

    Shouldn't 850W be enough? Faulty PSU?

    It's a combination of both. GPU with inadequate power regulation combined with a PSU with inadequate power regulation. Regardless, when you get your new PSU, swap the cables too even if they might appear identical.

    Shouldn't 850W be enough? Faulty PSU?

    Your PSU model might have issues with high transient power spikes that GPUs like this one have, causing the overcurrent protection to kick in and shut down the PSU. https://forums.evga.com/We-need-to-have-a-thread-of-what-PSU-people-have-and-RTX-3080-or-3090-and-is-WORKING-m3118557.aspx...
