    CPU idle temp up to 60 C

    What software are you using to monitor- try nothing but Ryzen master and disable icue, or motherboard software as mentioned above.

    Show us your kitty cats

    Yeah funnily enough I bought the Ava cat food for the first time a few weeks before the warnings (usually use science plan), luckily my cat had turned her nose up as they often do so I don't believe she ate much, if any, thank god. Was horrible to hear about the side affects of this thing.

    Show us your kitty cats

    *****, sorry to hear bud, hopefully she starts eating! Never easy when you have to make this kind of decision, been there and I was in tears, not afraid to admit it, they are family. Anyways I really hope she improves-sending positive thoughts your way.

    PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - Thread

    ] We all called him the trash panda (jovially). After about 6 months of getting his scraps (and copious amounts of beer) I lost it with him. Everyone else in our group used to ask the person who got the kill if there was anything they needed. Tis but a game but when you've got nothing and...

    PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - Thread

    Looking at maybe reinstalling after a few years of COD (not warzone) What's the state of the game like now? Haven't played for like 2 or 3 years (since I fell out with a guy in the group I played with - always getting to my kills and grabbing all the best stuff first). Has it been polished any...

    In the current GPU market, is the smart thing to do just to settle for the best APU you can get?

    This is something I would find interesting to see, benchmark wise at least. I'm guessing drivers might be an issue though.

    5000 Series Undervolting

    No sorry bud, mb got sprayed with fan bearing oil so has been replaced with a different make and model, found that the tomahawk max b450 fed more power to the CPU than my new one as well. I enabled advanced PBO, set PBO limits to disabled. I think I ended up setting a negative co of -20 on two...

    In the current GPU market, is the smart thing to do just to settle for the best APU you can get?

    Suppose it would be ok if you were only interested in playing through unplayed steam library of older games e.t.c. otherwise looks like last gen console performance at 1080p or worse (lowest settings) with 5700g.

    Help with Curve Optimiser

    There is a guy on here called the asgard who seems to know his stuff, search for a thread called 5000 series undervolting, sure he'll be about to help you. I found in my very limited experience that undervolting increased multicore but decreased single core, but that was just me with my limited...

    AMD 5900x cooling

    Just looked at a review (old one) and the load temp results of your cooler were about the same as a hyper 212 Evo (decent but budget cooler), so you would be asking a lot from it tbh. With my chip the NH-C14S let's it get to 85c max gaming (averages in the 70's) and is shown to be in the middle...

    New PC restarting

    I wouldn't trust that (even though it could suggest it), my motherboard caused kernel crashes in 3d mark timespy graphics test 2 specifically.

    New PC restarting

    Just had a similar issue (kernel power crashes) turned out to be my motherboard, but could quite easily be PSU or anything hardware. As for temps, my 5900x can hit a max of 85c while gaming but usually averages in the 70's so yours is running quite a bit cooler. Have you tried stressing gpu...

    40 second boot time on new build

    Check boot priorities in bios, ensure os drive is first in line. Remove all usb connections and try to boot- had a usb device that caused slow boot in the past myself. Event viewer, windows button and X and select it. Only played around in it myself a little bit but logs things like errors...

    3080 ti Display issues, any ideas?

    Just to finish off (because I hate coming across threads when having similar issues that don't have an outcome). 3 beeps,from speaker on startup with ampere GPU, display not showing anything before os (e.g. bios) and kernel (power crashes) turned out to be a motherboard issue. New motherboard...

    PC dying, upgrade time

    Yeah that CPU cooler quoted is too tall if not the air case, my cooler is about 140 high (with 2 fans) and is almost touching the glass (noctua nh-c14s). If you want an aio would probably go with arctic freezer II 360 side/front or 360/240 top (think a 360 can go up there), but then I'm not...

    3080 ti Display issues, any ideas?

    Think your right, suppose could have been worse, just some fans and new motherboard hopefully (although still a kick in the teeth), might struggle to explain the patch on the CPU to amd though worst case but hey at least I kept the 3600 which should be good for some time yet. Anyways thanks for...

    3080 ti Display issues, any ideas?

    Think it might be vapour chamber or bearing fluid now as per above. I use an NH c14s down firing CPU cooler. I did notice a while back something similar on my evga GPU backplate but put it down to thermal pad leaking, was going to contact evga at some point. Having looked at the bottom fan...

    Oil? https://imgur.com/gallery/LFV4CuM 3600x - CPU used prior to 5900 also shows signs of an oil/residue. 3600x prior to 5900x https://imgur.com/gallery/yAWMctD Edited to show pic of previous CPU.

    3080 ti Display issues, any ideas?

    So bit of an update. Can no longer see anything before os even with hdmi and after a bit of research believe it is either a CPU or MB issue. Used another 2nd hand PSU and system still kernel crashed. Just took out CPU and there is an oil/darker patches on chip by side of socket running down to...

    3080 ti Display issues, any ideas?

    I have tried different ram on motherboard qvl previously and current ram passed windows memory test, but will give this a shot before I hit the buy button on PSU thanks. Tried the last two bios myself, display works fine in os so not to bothered having to plug in hdmi when I want to get into...
