    Fortnite crashing

    85c is hot to me. I have a 3800x and turned off PBO in the BIOS. I can boost to 4.6ghz single core and max temps are high 60's to low 70's. Although I'm watercooled, but am running a tiny ITX case with an Asus X570-i and an X5700XT, all off a single 120mm fan. If I were you, I'd reapply...

    Fortnite crashing

    Have you tried removing the heatsink and reapplying the thermal paste? Sounds like some improvements can be made with the temps. Is the case well ventilated? Is there an overclock? What voltage is the CPU seeing in the BIOS? Is he using PBO? (PBO tends to overvolt things, especially with...

    I've actually been a member here since early 2000's, but lost my password while going to school. I'm more of a lurker than a poster, and typically sell my stuff locally. No worries though as I'd be hesitant as well.

    ^^^ I've read with these 5700's you have to go into the BIOS and tell it to use PCI-e 3.0 if you do not currently have a PCI-e 4.0 motherboard, otherwise you can get stuttering/bsod's. I do not know for sure as I do not have one though

    Terrible gaming experience with Ryzen 1700

    not sure why he doesn't just open task manager while gaming and see what the RAM utilization is. Prolly a moot point now, since it seems he's given up. Wasn't much of a thread as he really didn't seem to want to resolve the issue. Maybe the best thing to do is to sell everything like he...

    Want to sell my Ryzen 1700 and get a 8700k. Is it stupid or greedy?

    If I were you, I'd wait until Zen2 to see if it's worth staying on the AM4 platform, or moving to the Intel platform. It all boils down to if you want to spend your $$ now, or later.

    Nephew build randomly freezing

    Not sure why your default ram voltage is 1.2v, I was under the impression 3200mhz ram was 1.35v default. For shits and giggles, you should raise to 1.35v and see if you still get the lock-ups.

    Is the ram running at 1.35v like it should? Hop into the BIOS and set the voltage manually if needed to test

    Help, nvme ssd upgrade running slower than SATA!

    So I downloaded your manual and nowhere in the manual is 'nvme' explicity mentioned. You do realize the m.2 slot comes in 2 flavors, right? (NVME and SATA). Thinking you have an NVME drive which your motherboard doesn't support.

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    Is the machine going to sleep, causing it to go offline? Also open Device Manager and ensure your nic and USB ports are not being suspended due to inactivity. I'm suspecting sleep/hibernate issues, so you could also disable hibernation and edit your power settings to keep things from powering...

    Fans spin but no video - motherboard doesn't POST or boot up

    Can you get into the BIOS? If so, see if it's indeed set to display onboard video or PCIe video. I suspect you'll have to get into the BIOS anyways since you've now reset it, and PCIe video will need to be primary. When you installed the new heatsink, was there a plastic film on the heatsink...

    Nvme Plunge suggestions?

    I used an M.2 NVME (Samsung Evo 960) to clean up cabling. I have an ITX case and wanted a clean look, so went with the NVME drive mounted in the slot located underneath my motherboard. Never a problem and it's always nice to have 3200mb/s transfer rate (even though I may never 'see' it).

    Any AM4 Mini-ITX Boards with 3 Monitor Outputs?

    Realize that even though the motherboard has the display outputs, you will need either a 2200g or 2400g processor. (They have integrated graphics). Otherwise, I would opt for something like a 2600, with a dedicated graphics card that has 3 outputs.
