    Artifacts in MW5 with 6900XT?

    I don't have issues in other games that I'm aware of, but I get these linear shimmery things in Mechwarrior 5. I've tried all the settings up and down and can't figure out what might be causing it. I put a screenshot of the most obvious ones but it happens all over the screen. Anyone else see...

    Windows 11 is holding my drive hostage

    I have a 2TB m.2 that had windows 11 installed on it. All I want to do is format it to be a storage drive, but I can't do anything to it. Disk management can't do it, going into command prompt and using diskpart can't do it, using windows 10/11 installer USB can't do it. It keeps telling me...

    3070ti suddenly will not come off idle in games?

    So I thought it was my one old game that has always been a struggle with newer GPUs, but now I've tried several others today and I've found my 3070ti is absolutely STUCK at around 345mhz in games. Interestingly, graphing the GPU clocks as soon as you close the game and go back to the desktop it...

    Windows 11 desktop background slideshow stutter?

    I am currently using a 48 inch OLED as a monitor, and so I decided to set up a 10 minutes rotation background and hide the taskbar as I generally have smaller windows open for my current programs and I figured having the rest of the screen change periodically would be beneficial for the screen...

    [FS] 5800X combo - SOLD

    Not going to be using this stuff so I'd rather it move on to a new home. I powered it up to make sure it works and then decided to keep my 12700k rig and not fiddle with migrating my OS. - Brand new 5800X from AMD (RMA replacement) - Brand new MSI B550-A Pro motherboard - 32GB Team DDR4 3200...

    Ryzen stutter on desktop, not TPM related?

    So I finally received my replacement Asus X570 TUF motherboard and 5800X from AMD after RMA-ing them for a blue screen crash while gaming that I couldn't fix for months, and now I have a different issue (go figure). There is now a 100% consistent 1hz "stutter" all the time no matter what. Like...

    FS/FT: Gigabyte 6900XT reference card (GONE)

    Got this card from another user on here a while ago, and while it performs great in 99% of tasks, the ONE game I play the most doesn't play nice with AMD drivers. I would like to trade it straight across for something like a 3070/3070ti/3080, or alternatively I will sell it for $975 shipped...

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    I've been buying Ryzen chips since they came out and recommending them to everyone. I've probably put together 30 different machines with them by now. But trying to RMA my 5800X that has constant WHEA errors unless I shut all the C-states off, disable PBO and CPB, and change it to PCI-E 3.0 is...

    12700K ram choices?

    So I just got this setup up and running, I have a 12700K and an MSI Z690-A DDR4 board. I currently have two choices for RAM here, wondering which way to go is better. Both are 3200mhz XMP settings, I have a G-Skill 2x16 kit that is 16-18-18-38 but I also have a Teamgroup 4x8 kit that is samsung...

    5800X constant WHEA errors/blusescreen only in games

    So I've been having this problem for a few weeks now, not sure what exactly is happening here. This ONLY happens in games, this machine will run any stress test or benchmark for 20 hours straight with zero hiccups. If I try to play a game, in this instance the game is Fallout 76, it will blue...

    Two EVGA power supplies VS one 6900XT.... what is this?

    So I just picked up a 6900XT from a user on here, and I'm seeing very strange issues with my EVGA power supplies hooked up to this card. Note that I did some searching and a few others with high end 6000 series cards have had the similar experiences when combined with EVGA power supply coil...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    I have an EVGA 3070 with the XC3 cooler. Is this possible? I know they are designed to be off at idle up to a certain temp, and I can't find anything in the Precision software to stop this from happening. The fans on this thing rattle like a bastard when they spin up and its annoying as hell...

    What is an RX 560 4GB equivalent to?

    I've had this thing collecting dust (literally) for a couple of years. I have no idea when I bought it, no PCI-E power connector so its probably not very fast. I tried to look at comparisons on google and I think its around a GTX 660? Maybe? Its an MSI 4GB OC model. I wanted to use it to set up...

    How did this get under my radar?

    I loved this game when it came out, then there was the whole stink with Curt Schilling and the game support just evaporated. Even so, the game was very complete and had minimal bugs so I played through it a lot. I had absolutely no idea there was an improved/remastered version that came out. I...

    How to fix your noisy Acer X27 fan

    I did some searching on this and found lots of complaints but no solutions! I bought (stupidly) an Acer XB273K (4k/144 Gsync 2 27"). I got it all set up and was very impressed with everything except the blasted fan noise. I didn't know prior to buying it that it even had one so that was a...

    Vega cards coil whine with my EVGA PSU but not corsair?

    I have had several Vega cards, reference and otherwise. I was originally using an EVGA 750B2 but I upgraded to a newer 850P2.

    Ryzen 3 2200U laptop very sluggish?

    So I picked up one of those fairly cheap laptops that was on sale with a 2200U/Vega 3 and 8GB of RAM. I picked this model specifically because it states it has dual channel RAM which I know is a big deal for the APU. I thought the slowness was the drive so I ripped out the garbage 5400rpm HDD...

    Sapphire V64 Nitro+ SR, can't gain control over fans

    How to get Wattman to auto-apply?

    I was wondering if any of you fellow AMD users figured out how to get Wattman to auto-apply settings at startup? If left completely alone, my V56 seems to be set up with a different HBM speed every boot (sometimes 700, sometimes 800, I've seen 500 a few times as well). I have a profile with...
