    How to test for PCI-Express bottleneck?

    Thank you everyone (y) Someone mentioned my Sabertooth P67 so I just made a test with it combined with a ROG 5700 XT. I'm not worried by bottlenecks anymore and can tell there is no reason to test other systems for now. But the most important thing is I got a better understanding f how to test...

    Advise on buying for multi-monitor setup

    I'm looking to upgrade both me and my girlfriends displays, but since we got multi-monitor setup (old BenQ GW2670's) they can't be too expensive, so instead of just throwing money at expensive screens and hoping for the best any advice on good-for-gaming displays matching the following without...

    How to test for PCI-Express bottleneck?

    Oh, sorry I misread the comparison of 3dmark versions then. I'll go have another look. I haven't provided any hardware info because I wanted to be able to test it myself since it is for more than testing one PC. I was only looking to learn :happy:

    [plz delete] ASUS ROG Swift PG278QE still worth buying?

    EDIT: I just got told that it doesn't support Freesync and since back in 2015 I'm no longer running Nvidia cards. Sorry for wasting your time :dead: So way back in 2015 I was looking at the ASUS ROG Swift PG278QE display but never got around to actually order it. Is it still worth buying or are...

    How to test for PCI-Express bottleneck?

    It only shows which PCI Express the card is using though, right? No way to see how much it is using of the available bandwidth. Sorry, I'm not buying 3D mark pro just for this.

    Another TUF X570 problem. and also what asus support told me.

    A QVL is a list of hardware they have tested working - not a get out of jail free card. It is a way for customers to know for sure something works without having to test it themselves. The more lists they have the better they are supporting their customers. Using hardware not on the list doesn't...

    AMD Driver Software bundle: Hokey/Overlay popping up.

    Installs a full software suite. Calls driver bloatware. Why do you install it if you don't want it? Install the driver only if you want only a driver.

    Which GPU brand generally has the best build quality?

    I'm very surprised anyone mentions XFX in a thread about quality. They have made awful cards, like the THICC cards. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3518-xfx-rx-5700-xt-thicc-ii-ultra-review-benchmark

    How to test for PCI-Express bottleneck?

    Hello experts :) I'm running a brand spanking new GPU on a very dusty motherboard. Is it possible somehow to see the PCI-Express bus utilization and if it is bottlenecking the GPU? I know you can google some tests, opinions and theoretical numbers but I'd like to be able to see/test it myself...

    Help picking AMD CPU

    I had no idea Zen2 was coming. I will wait and see how the price and performance looks a month from now. Thank you! I play a lot of different types of games so I will have a look. Thank you for the tip :)

    Help picking AMD CPU

    I'm completely out of the loop on hardware these days so would someone mind giving me some advice on what would be a good upgrade? I'm thinking a boost in performance like ~50% (see link below for current specs) and the ability to upgrade CPU for as long as possible. Usage is something like 60%...

    New GPU in old board. How fast?

    I'm not in the US so it's quite a bit more expensive here than on those sites.

    New GPU in old board. How fast?

    Thanks, exactly what I needed. I thought I would be way more bottlenecked by the mobo and CPU. Now off to shopping!

    New GPU in old board. How fast?

    Hello experts. My GPU died and I'm totally lost in the jungle. What is the fastest card I can put in my old machine without having a huge bottleneck? I5 2500k @ 4,6 Sabertooth P67 (only has PCI-e 2 x 16) 12gb RAM My monitor is 1080p 60hz.

    How fast a GPU before bottleneck?

    Thanks! Yes, 60hz 1080P gaming and no specific genres as I play lots of different kinds. I have already made another question elsewhere since I have no idea how fast RAM this board can use. EDIT: The CPU is at 4,4ghz. No idea how high I can push it.

    Fastest RAM in an old Sabertooth p67?

    I'm about to get some new RAM to overclock an I5 2500k but I'm unsure what I can use in this motherboard. ASUS' site says up to 1866 but I see tests (like DigitalFoundry's) that recommend paring the CPU with 2133. Can I run that in the Sabertooth?

    How fast a GPU before bottleneck?

    Sorry, I actually meant 4,?ghz. I can't remember how much and I'm not near it atm, but it isn't up at 4,5. I think I'll look at more overclock, faster RAM and then maybe a 1070.

    How fast a GPU before bottleneck?

    Hello experts. I'm looking at upgrading GPU but I'm unsure how high I can go before it will be bottlenecked too much by the rest of the system. Currently the system is a I5 2500k @ 3,?ghz with a R9 380 4GB. The motherboard is an ASUS Sabertooth P67 (PCIe 2.0 x16). So, how high can I go...

    It is the microphone. I don't have a mic in in my phone.

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    I did test with another set. It is with jack instead of USB though, but it had it too. Did you read the part about my test with a cable directly between MIC IN and headphones out? By my logic the problem has to be external, after the PC.

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    I've gotten rid of some of the noise after I disconnected everything as advised, but 90 % is still there. To rule out even more I've tested with a cable directly between mic in and headphones out with software from Passmark and Rightmark. It isn't perfect but it removes pretty much all the...

    Hmm, that might be a solution but how much is a UPS good enough to remove all that noise? Searching drowns me in stuff I have no clue about.

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    I tried grounding with a piece of wire with no change. I also tried listing to the mic while moving around in the room to see if I could figure out if it was anything specific that made the noise but no luck there either. If anything putting the mic behind the TV made it more quiet(?!). I...

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    Thank you for giving me something to try and think about. I know grounding is important but there's no way for me to do so in this rented flat. I have tried following your other advice and I found out that the microphone works as an antenna. It catches the buzzing through the cabling from the...

    Another "For the love of god help me get rid of buzzing/mic noice!" thread

    So, I have quite a lot of noise on my microphone and to not annoy those I talk with I'd really like to fix it. Sadly I have no idea how. The noise is either from all the stuff I have connected in my living-room or from the power outlet as it is a problem in both my PC and my PlayStation 4 (same...

    New card or use an old one?

    I have and just like when I bough my old card (the Audigy) Creative cards got good reviews. I don't know much about soundcards but I do know that worse drivers than theirs have seldom seen the light of day. I don't know if it is better today or the reviews are like back then though, so I didn't...

    New card or use an old one?

    Simple question (though I have no idea if the answer is simple too): I was happy with my onboard audio (the ASUS Sabertooth P67 has a Realtek ALC892) until I needed to use my microphone for Mumble. Yikes! So. Much. Noise! So now I'm thinking, do I need to buy a new dedicated card or is my old...

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    Thank you. I'll look for a 770 card with the Windforce X3 then. They seem to get good reviews.

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    Not an 770 (are they more quiet?) but this should fit (just): GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 760 OC (Windforce X3). Looks like it isn't too loud in reviews. Would a 770 be a better choice?

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    I'm sorry if I'm a bit slow here, but wouldn't a three slot card be less noisy than a two or one slot? With the bigger cooler?

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    It isn't more expensive because of the small size? The length is no problem (there's 40cm of room in length in the case). And is it silent?

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    The height. I just had a thought. The current card leaves just enough room for pcie pins/cables and it is the same height as the bracket on it. That should make it a lot easier (: Oh and "nyhed" means "New" or "Just added".

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    GTX 780? Not very specific since I need a quiet card.

    Upgrade to more power and less noise

    Btw. my Sabertooth P67 motherboard only have PCIe 2.0 x16. No idea what the newest cards use these days (PCIe 3?), but in my price range it should be more than enough, no? :) I also just remembered: The GTX 460 is a real tight fit. It cannot be any higher at all or it wont fit beneath the PSU..
