Respect for the aftermarket gpu cooler. +1

Can I ask one favor? Could you measure the dimensions of the case for me? Height, Width and Depth. I don't trust what the spec sheet says lol.

Thanks, it looks a lot different now. Still got the 6600k and 480 but now they're both in a custom loop :) Never got round to uploading it though I probably will when I upgrade the CPU and mobo!

So sorry, I won't be able to answer your question.

I use driver booster for installing all drivers (except GPU) never had a problem (yet!). I've only ever used the free version but I would say it's a good program.

Have a look in resource monitor on the disk tab. Sort the disk activity window (bottom half) and see if anything has a really high Read, Write, Total or response time.

From there we can figure out what is causing the issue and fix it.

Yeah bengy's right. That's a half USB port connector. Plug it into a USB header on your motherboard, one row will be left unconnected.

Thank you for the screenshots.

Try using Asrock A-tuning or Ryzen master and see if either of those will let you OC.

The memory thing is normal. A small amount of space is reserved for various reasons and so isn't usable to Windows.

Normally I'd expect to see 7.8 or 7.9Gb available but it may be that your configuration needs more reserved for dual channel.

(legonate makes a good point about the iGPU too)

In regards to overclocking AMDs site says it's unlocked. Screenshots would be needed to help much further (unless someone familiar with the bios is around).

Yes it will work.

However, it will run at 2400MHz not 3000MHz as that board does not support overclocking. (Anything beyond 2400MHz for DDR4 requires a board that allows overclocking eg: Z170/Z270 etc)

I don't think a 4 bit shift register cuts it as a microprocessor.

There's nothing wrong with it. There's always a small amount of ram that is hardware reserved meaning it's not usable to Windows.

My PC shows 7.9Gb instead of 8Gb for example, it's completely normal no need to worry.

Yeah, I'd use the outputs from the GPU for sure.

There will be an adapter cable that will sort you out however you decide you want to connect it. (Just avoid using VGA as it's an analogue signal)

This thread goes into plenty of detail about everything:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1621347/kaby-lake-overclocking-guide-with-statistics

Just read everything in the post before you make an attempt if this is your first time and you don't understand what most things mean.

If the voltage is dropping a lot at idle when the CPU downclocks itself and you don't want it to. You'd need to set fixed voltage and turn off C-states (to fix the CPU at the max frequency.).

If the voltages fluctuates a little depending on load then you need to tinker with LLC.

Despite the system working fine without the GPU installed?

Edit: I know what you mean and there could be some crazy thing going on but we've agreed it's worth getting a better PSU and keeping that one especially considering he's planning on upgrading and you never know what you'll end up with. I had a 780ti for a bit, I wouldn't have been able to power it if I had cheaped out.

Good to hear they have something planned.

It works just fine without the GPU and yeah I agree he didn't look anything up. He doesn't have a lot of money and wanted to get something running with the intention of upgrading later. As you can tell that's backfired.

A 350W is a bad idea with an Rx 580 regardless.

It's ok, it's my PC. Not yours, personally I quite like it.

It's actually changed up a bit since my last update, I'm now in a even worse airflow case but I'm planning on watercooling my gpu to fix that. Also, I've got an Rx 580 now thanks to a Vbios change.

It's now in a blue case with a nice blue LED fan in the back. I up sized a bit to micro-atx to potentially accommodate an upgrade to AM4 similar to you. (I had a look at your part lists :P ) Would probably get an Asrock Taichi cause I'd want to see how good an OC I can get.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "SSD Question"

  • 26 months ago

I do currently but here's a little story.

Bought a 128Gb SSD near christmas for another PC but only got round to installing it and transferring everything the other weekend. The first time I cloned the disk it didn't work but it did the second time. I wiped the original HDD after I checked everything seemed OK and moved the documents etc off. I powered the system off for the night and came back the next day to finish up.

Logged on etc fine and left it for a few mins as I was doing work on my own PC at the time. I went to open chrome and windows was frozen, the mouse worked but not the keyboard. After a minute it BSODed with CRITIcAL PROCESS DIED. Upon restarting I was informed there was no bootable drive.

After about 2 total disk writes and a day of usage the SSD had died. I hadn't even finished moving stuff off it before it died. The replacement is on its way right now.

So yes, backup your files and keep all important files on a HDD. You never know when your SSD may spontaneously die like that one did.

Ok, can you open resource monitor, click on the disk tab and look at the second section in the middle (disk activity).

Sort by Total (B/sec) and Response time and tell me which process is staying at or near the top. This way we can see what is using up all the disk time.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Disk 100% Help Please!"

Open command prompt and type:

wpr -cancel

I had a weird thing where WPR (windows performance reporting) was using 100% of disk time for no reason. As soon as I used that command it stopped. After a few days the problem went away.

No real problem then. If the sticking out tab over the display ports is flush with the case where you screw it in then you're fine.

I never said that,

"the 480 is the faster card nowadays and with the extra 2gb VRAM"

VRAM and memory capcacity doesn't matter until you don't have enough at which point it's a really big problem.

Whilst I don't know much VRAM various games use I agree with your general idea as 6gb seems to do for now. But, as you said maybe not in the future.

I have the 480 but both cards are very good 1080p/ light 1440p cards.

Neither is more suited for gaming, however, the 480 is the faster card nowadays and with the extra 2gb VRAM.

Just be warned the Rx 580 and 570 are coming out real soon offering better clocks and about the same price.

I use to have really bad interference too. I changed cases and it went away. Since then (and still do) I plug everything into the rear audio jacks.

You may be able to reduce it by routing the cable differently. Avoid your PSU mainly.

Not as good as mine! :D

Been running mine at 4.5 with a 150mV offset since I got it. On my really bad Asrock board. Reported voltage whilst loaded is 1.2 to 1.25V. Have run it briefly at 4.8GHz set at 1.4V but my board isn't good enough as I get some much lower voltage under load.

If anyone has a Micro-atx or Itx Z170 board I will gladly accept it and push past 4.8GHz

Honestly a 240/280 aio and deliding the CPU replacing the paste with liquid metal is the best bet.

The stock paste is pretty horrendous this time round. Deliding isn't hard or very risky with the special deliding tool.

I feel 120gb ssd's are the minimum size you should buy which can have windows and a few games and programs.

240+Gb drives are normally quite a bit better gb/$ and can store quite a few games and stuff.

You know the lower end boards aren't meant for OCing?

If they can get away with using a less powerful VRM on the cheap boards that's why they're doing it. To make them cheaper.

The proper X370 boards meant for OCing look very good.
