    Fractal Torrent

    I received my Torrent today, the replacement fanhub is included in the box and you just need to switch it out yourself.

    Borderlands 3

    I'm playing with mostly ultra except for Volumetric Fog and Material Complexity which I had set to medium as doing so gave a pretty big performance boost, I also have motion blur off. Playing at 1440p on an RTX 2060/Ryzen 3700x/16gb 3200 ram I was pretty much locked to 60fps until I went to the...

    AMD Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000) - *** NO COMPETITOR HINTING ***

    I'm only using the Dark Rock 4 rather than the Pro version, but the difference in noise from the stock cooler (Well, the Wraith Prism in my case) is night and day. None of the constant ramping up and down, none of the annoying whine, I can sometimes hear the Dark Rock 4 if I go out of the way to...

    AMD Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000) - *** NO COMPETITOR HINTING ***

    I'm also having high temps while doing nothing, crazy seeing it jump from 35 to 61 in the blink of an eye. I've ordered a Dark Rock 4 to replace the stock cooler now, not so much because of the temps as I'm not convinced it will help much with that, but the noise is doing my head in so I'm...

    Zen 2 Owners Thread!

    Received my 3700x and b450 Pro Carbon today, had some issues using the flashback button at first but I got there in the end. I know it's been said a million times at this point but my god does this cpu run hot, I mean I'm only using the stock cooler (think I'll be changing that very soon as the...

    AMD Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000) - *** NO COMPETITOR HINTING ***

    I keep adding a 3700x and Pro Carbon to my basket but keep hesitating due to these reports of high temps/voltages at idle, like is it likely to cause any issues?

    CPU/Motherboard/RAM Upgrade Advice - £500

    As title says, looking for some advice on what my best options are. I was thinking a Ryzen 3700x, a B450 and 16gb of 3200MHz ram would be a pretty decent jump from my current i5 4460/8gb ddr3 but thought I'd get some feedback on that before I pull the trigger. Few things I should mention, - I'm...

    CPU Bottleneck or something else?

    So just as an update (a pretty embarrassing one as I really should know better...), last night I updated my motherboards Bios and have seen a significant improvement. It is by no means perfect but rather than drops to the 40s it's usually somewhere between 55-60 now and no where near as...

    CPU Bottleneck or something else?

    I'll look into this as I have a really big urge to play Divinity: Original Sin 2 lately and I guess due the type of game 30FPS wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for the time being. Cheers. It's an EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2. The temps seem to be around 52-62 when gaming which I think is fair...

    CPU Bottleneck or something else?

    Hey thanks for the response... Yes it's whatever game that I am playing that is using the majority of the CPU. The RAM usage in Dragons Dogma was around 65% but I must admit I haven't really paid attention to that in other games. Yes. I should mention I did a fresh install of Windows 10 too...

    CPU Bottleneck or something else?

    Hi, first off sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this as I wasn't sure where to put it but I'm just looking to for some advice here, basically for a while I had been running, i5 4460 GTX 1060 6GB 8gb DDR3 Ram 1440p Monitor and then earlier in the year I bought a RTX 2060, and honestly I...

    Upgrade CPU/RAM/Motherboard or GPU first?

    Thanks for the reply. I was leaning towards GPU first due to Ryzen 3 but was unsure of the timeframe. So even at around the same price would you go with a 2060 over a 1070ti then? I was just concerned that at 1440p I may run into issues with the 6gb the 2060 has, but I admit I don't really know...

    Upgrade CPU/RAM/Motherboard or GPU first?

    Hi, basically as the title says. I'm going to do both but unsure which would be best to do first as there will probably be a fair few months between upgrades, my current system is, i5 4460 8GB RAM GTX 1060 6GB I'm considering a GTX 1070ti or a GTX 2060, price dependent (Seems I could get...
