i got an aorus b450 pro mobo and im planning to buy a ryzen 3600xt on the box it says 3000 series ready but i read alot online that it needs a bios update any advice before buying ?

ID: gr9jwip

That 3000 series ready means that they did the bios update before putting the motherboard in the box, so don't worry

Where is the official link to the latest Linux drivers for amdgpu? How do I know when a new update is released? How do you even navigate to this link from amd.com?

Anyone know when amdgpu will get kernel 5.8 fixes? I'd like to get opencl working on my PN50 4500U without using pocl.

Hello guys!

Im on a long journey to figure out whats wrong with my system and cant find much on google about it.

I recently upgraded my rig and got a 5600XT Strix T6G from Asus in combination with a B550 Strix RoG Board from Asus aswell (flashed newest Bios). CPU is a Ryzen 3600x (Ryzen Power Plan is on Performance) with 16 GB GSkill Ripjaw Ram (Checked for Support from both Vendors, XMP running fine). Whole system is powerd by a 860W Corsair PSU (exchanged it with a fairly new 750W EVGA PSU for testing, changed nothing).

Everything seems fine, except for gaming performancen.

The new 5600XT performs way worse than my 8 years old 980 GTX EVGA SC.

In all games i tested i get weird stuttering because of low GPU Usage and GPU-SLCK fluctuation.

Especially in demanding games like Total War Warhammer 2 really weird stuff happens. A few seconds into a battle, where the card should go max power i get max clock and usage for a few seconds an then its clocks way down to 40 GPU usage and clocks around 1100 to 1350 Mhz for the rest of the demanding phases dropping my FPS a fair amount below 60 (funny thing is, its less worse with VSYNC on, but with uncapped FPS even if im at 110 FPS or something in that range i get FPS drops below 50-40 causing really unpleseant Stuttering). Temps are fine at all time around 50C. CPU Usage is around 30 to 40 at all times. It kinda feels like some hidden Energy Saving stuff is kicking in, i dont now what to do or try anymore. Is it just a driver problem? (made fresh installs with recomended and optional AMD drivers, changed nothing, tried to switch serveral options to on and off, leaving everything at default, changes nothing as well)

I looked up Benchmarks of my Card on Youtube and every single one was going strong with max clock and GPU Usage all the way (even if the Silent Q Bios was switched on).

Another weird thing is, that the GPU powerconsumption stays around 80-90W where it should be at 120W for a good performance, as mentioned above, changing PSUs changed nothing

Last thing i could think of was flashing the VGA Bios, but apperently for the STRIX TOP Gaming version there is none, only for the O6G version.

I really dont like bothering people on the Web with my problems, but at this point im pretty helpless.

Maybe somebody knews a good advice or workaround

Thanks in Advance

Edit: So i kinda fixed it, and it is (was) most likely still a driver Issue with complete AMD Systems.

If u suffer the same problems as i did and kinda do, i suggest the following:

-Do a fresh Win10 install from CD/USB (not only the Windows restore via Windows Software)

- Use the latest beta drivers for your Board Chipset and for Adrenalin aswell

-Flash your latest Mobo Bios

Result was :

- Most games run fine now - I get nearly optimal gpu usage/clockspeed with uncapped FPS

- Vsync is still not optimal, but thats kinda a know issue with the AMD 5000 Cards since they agressivly adust clock speed/usage to FPS so : Fixed Framerate = Big Fluctuation = Stutters. HOWEVER:

-If u kinda have to use Vsync because u have only a 60 refreshrate on your monitor you can atleas do Something : Disable Vsync, and Cap your Frames ingame (if possible) or use Raden Chill to set the FPS to a range from 140 to 144. Screen Tearing should be minimal and stutters should be bette

Thats all i could find after 2 Weeks of Troubleshooting.

Sidenote: I read so much troubleshooting Threads and i made an observation: Most people with Problems have a combination of a 3600/3600x with any AMD 5000 range GPU. Seeing how my problems got better with beta drivers, it might be completly fine in the futer with more Bios Updates and love done to the Driver. So if u plan to buy a new system and want a AMD GPU in the 5000 range, stay away from the Ryzen 3600/3600x, u will most likely run into trouble

Is anyone else having issues with sharpening. im thinking of this

it was basically necessary for me in warzone otherwise the game is just too blurry. it worked in csgo also but it would cause crashes/non starts after the trust factor update. but now it just doesnt work at all. i toggled on and off, fiddled with the slider. reloaded driver. reinstalled. updated... but to no avail, it just refuses to work. im stuck using monitors sharpening which doesnt come close to the driver one

THE PROBLEM: I see benchmarks of this card getting 400 fps in almost all games at 1080p low or high settings. but I never get too far past 200, and often barely see 180. my 1660ti offered the same 1080p performance.... at 1080p I often see only a 500-800 MHZ clock rate, and the GPU will only Draw 50-70 watts of power.my 4k performance on the card sees maximum power draw and a 2200mhz clock. but again, the performance there is great, i see 140-180 fps

Drivers crashing/giving black screen when watching Twitch streams and gaming

When im watching a Twitch stream and playing certain games (League of Legends is where it happens the most) the screen goes black for some seconds and it gives me a crash report.

The game keeps working after the crash, but the twitch stream shuts down and i have to refresh the page.

Summary of Issue

Tested R7 5800x on cinebench r23, got low MC and SC scores

The results from running cinebench r23 on the R7 5800x were MC: 13368 and SC: 1558.

I was researching online the stock scores and people were saying that their MC were between 14000 and 15000, which has made me quite paranoid since I'm really not an expert in this.

System Configuration

14 : Anonymous2021/01/01 14:30 ID: ghps8x5

Summary of Issue:

Updated to the 5809 BIOS, updated to the most recent chipset drivers, and started getting a BSOD for memory_management. I ran the memory diagnostic tool and it said there was a hardware issue... which considering I've never had an issue today I'm guessing isn't actually the physical hardware itself.

System configuration:

Motherboard: Asus Prime x470-PRO

CPU: Ryzen 2600x

PSU: Corsair 850w

System Memory: G.SKILL TridentZ RGB (3200) 2 x 8GB Intel XMP 2.0 running at 2133MHz

OS: Windows 10 64-bit 10.0.18363

Driver: AMD Chipset Driver V2.09.28.509

Background Apps: Discord, Steam, Firefox, Hyperx Ngenuity, Logitech Ghub, VLC Media Player

Steps to Reproduce:

It seems like it happens mainly if I have too many tabs open in Firefox. Firefox tabs have started crashing since the update as well.

This could be a waste of a post, maybe the problem will fix itself once I manage to find a 5000 series processor to put in the motherboard. Just thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas. I could go back to the last BIOS and see if the issue is gone, but I heard it's possible to brick your motherboard doing that so I'd rather not risk it.

ID: ghqo0rq

Firstly you're not even running your ram at the XMP speeds. It's possible that your ram is faulty and you only happened to notice it now or it just recently died.

I would boot into memtest86 and just let it run overnight. 1 error is 1 error too many. It should run without a single error. If there are errors, I would first look into an RMA for the ram and get a replacement kit.

ID: ghqqq6r

I am aware it's underclocked, it crashes a lot less that way. If it really died just when I updated BIOS and some drivers, that'd be a pretty big coincidence. Guess I'll try memtest tonight.

So ive been running my setup for about 9 months now, i have been using a 2070 Super as GPU up until yesterday with no issues.Yesterday i swapped that for a RX 6800 and for some reason the 2560x1440p resolution is missing from Windows (and ofc from games too)It kinda feels like a bad driver compability with my screen or something...maybe due to 120hz OC mode not being detected properly?

Also noticed that the VRAM seems to be running in 2000mhz all the time as mentioned alot in the latest driver thread - no issues with that except a bit of extra heat i guess.The fix for this seems to be to adjust my refreshrate to 100hz, then it immediately lowers usage to pretty much zero load?!.

What ive tested so far:Reinstalled Drivers the "normal" way and also with DDU, also removed old Nvidia drivers with DDUTried following drivers: 20.12.1 and 20.11.2 (20.12.1 twice between reinstallations)

Resolutions that i can see and use: 3440x1440,1920x1200, 1980x1080 -and below.Edit: managed to add a custom resolution of 2560x1440p at 100hz, after that windows added all supported 2560 resolutions - including 120hz which seems to be working ingame.

System Configuration

Motherboard: X570 AORUS MASTER (rev. 1.0) CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X PSU: Corsair RM750x Display: Dell AW3418DW (3440x1440 native) System Memory: 4x8GB G.Skill, Trident Z, DDR4 3600MHz (F4-3600C15D-16GTZ) GPU*:* Powercolor AXRX 6800 16GBD6-M2DHC OS : Windows 10 x64 (Version: 19041.264) Driver: Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.12.1 Applications: Windows 1909 -18363.1256

I've been having the same issue, different hardware. It seems to be happening on both of my all amd PCs. I have tried everything, drivers, bios, power configs, regedits, swapped all my ram around. Nothing seems to fix it. My audio also crackles when these stutters happen. I'll straight up pay someone $20 if they can help me fix this.

Summary: I've recently finished up my new PC build. I was trying to get re-size BAR to work and went down a deep rabbit hole... Long story short, I wiped my SSD and put it in GPT, then reinstalled windows in UEFI so that I would be able to boot with CSM turned off. When I went to enable re-size BAR, there was no "enable" option, only "auto". My question is - Am I missing something? Does auto enable Smart Access memory to work? Do I require some additional driver? I have seen other guides showing how to enable it and even with the same motherboard it shows the option to "enable" re-size BAR support.

I've got the latest BIOS for my X570 AORUS Master and there was also another setting above re-size BAR support I was told I would need to enable for this to all work, which I did as well. Something about 4G something.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Please let me know if there is any addition information needed. Thank you.

Alright. Settings -> IO Ports -> Above 4G Decoding = Enabled, Re-Size BAR Support = Auto. CSM = Disabled.

Yeah, that's the right setting for it. Verified it works. Go to windows "Device Manager" and Display Adapters -> (Insert GPU here). Right click -> Properties. In Resources, you should see "large memory range" and "memory range" under resource type.

Hope that helps!

Is a ~1.47 core voltage normal for a 5900x? This seems exceptionally high but to be fair this is a new machine after 8 years on a i5 4670k so I'm not sure what I should be seeing here.

so I got a 5800x the other day, upgrading from a 2700x and so far the boost in power is amazing. FPS is up 20-30 in CoD and my 4x8 sticks of 3200 ram can run at full speed. understandably, this CPU is gonna run a bit hotter than the old CPU, I'm just wondering if I'm experiencing the same results as others.

My idle temps range from about 45- 60 when it spikes which is sorta frequent, my fans ramp up in speed every time. gaming is typically around 70 or so, but again can jump as high as 80 or more, particularly when loading into something. I'm running Cinebench now and reading in the upper 80s.

does this sound about average? or should I be doing something to take the temps down to avoid damage? thanks!

6800xt reboot-looplock on resume from sleep

I have a 6800xt, upgraded from 1080ti. Rest of system is 3700x, C6H, 4x8 3200C14 flareX. Up to date win10, chipset, radeon.

I DDU'd from safe mode after getting the card, and while it works mostly fine, it is very frustrating that randomly the PC will boot-loop lock if it resumes from sleep. This needs a hard power cycle to restart.

This always also resets any radeon changes, meaning it won't boost high because the stupid default fan profile keeps it roasting away but very quiet.

Fixing the sleep-resume bug is really what I need help with. Google-fu results seem to generally be around laptops and disabling hibernation - there is no hibernation setting for my system, maybe it got disabled in a win10 update? I've also tried the powershell commands for this, but the problem persists.

Thank you for your help on this..

I swapped out my 5700 XT for a RX 6800 and I experience the same issue. At first I thought it was an issue with Above 4G Decoding, as there are other mentions of it, but disabling it didn't resolve the issue.

Been fiddling with BIOS settings to no available. Like you said, literally killing the power on the PSU is the only solution.

If it matters, already submitted the issue to AMD via the bug report tool.

So I bought the radeon 6800 xt and installed it on my rig. Everything works fine until I boot up a game then my pc would shut it self down and then it will start again. Here is my rig:

I tried Destiny2, warzone, it does the same. On destiny2 it will shut down after I choose a character. On warzone tho, when I load into a lobby it seems to be fine during the warm up. But after the game starts the pc shuts down.

I’ve been told a lot that it is probably a psu issue but I wanna make sure before I spend money on a new one.

I really appreciate it if someone could help me out here

RX 580 underperforming and performance spikes So, i noticed this in some games and i will use swbf2 and csgo as an example of my issues.

In swbf2, i only got about 45 fps max and gpu usage went from 100 to 0 to 30 and so on and frames went from 8 to 0 when the usage was low to 45 when high. In csgo, apparently it runs at 220 fps, but it feels as if it was running at 20 fps there are a lot of stutters that also happen in other games. And the third problem, sometimes it just drops signal to monitor and i have to close and open it manually, restart doesn't do anything.

Specs: ASUS DUAL RX 580 8GB OC Ryzen 5 2600x Asus a320 8gb ram 2666mhz And some samsung 4k monitor, but i mostly play games at 1080p and 1440p depending on performance

ID: gjobcs2

yeah same for me i was getting about 100 fps in overwatch at ultra settings and now im getting 45

If you get a fix plz tell me because it looks messy and my friend has a rx 570 and a worse cpu and getting way better fps

So I upgraded my gpu from GIGABYTE 1080 to AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and suddenly I'm getting low fps on almost every game I play. On Destiny 2 I'm getting around 50-60 fps in open areas. On COD Warzone the fps is like 70ish. On monster hunter it gets down to 45 when I'm in Seliana. These values are at 1440 but it doesn't matter even if I lower the settings or if I set the resolution to 1080. nothing chages. I tried downgrading to an older gpu driver but it did not help.

System Configuration

Motherboard: MSI Pro Series Intel X299
CPU: Intel Core i7-7800X Processor PSU: Corsair 850w

Display(s) (Make, Model and Type):

Lenovo Legion Y27q-20 (1440p 165Hz FreeSync)

System Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz

GPU (VBIOS): AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

OS (Version): Windows 10 pro x64 (Version: 19042.746) how do I find this?

Driver: Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.12.2

Applications: Destiny 2, Warzone, Monster hunter: world, Cyberpunk 2077

Background Apps: Discord

Radeon Software Settings: Instant Replay ON, Anti-Lag ON, Radeon Image Sharpening ON, Enhance Sync ON

Steps to Reproduce

Start any game on my pc. Getting low fps in open areas and not seeing improvement over the old gpu (GIGABYTE 1080).

I don't know if this is a gpu driver issue or anything. I;ve been trying to figure this out for 2 days now and no luck. Anyone can help please?

Hi all,

I think I've read so many conflicting things right now I don't know what to think anymore.. so coming to this sub for some guidance.

The parts I have * 3080 FE * 5800x

I'm looking for: - MOBO: my current shortlist is between: MSI MEG B550 UNIFY ATX AM4 Motherboard OR MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4

RAM: My current thinking is: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory. HOWEVER there is SO many model types, I don't know what to do. I've heard F4-3600C16Q-32GTZN is the best, but I cannot find this anywhere. I chose this memory because I've read good things around its performance, also I like its look. Any advice would be very much appreciated, this is my first gaming PC for over 5 years. My intention is not to OC, just the simple XMP Profile 1 yada.

For those that want to see more of the build I'm putting together:

Thanks Tyles

-clean win10 install -clean amd driver install different versions -setting my 6800xt to gen 3 in bios -updated chipset, all bios drivers etc -downclocked cpu and memory

I am still getting black screen totally at random. Sometimes three times in 10 minutes, sometimes once in 2 hours.

Im experiencing very high CPU temps. Even in idle it sits at around 55C and even bumps up to 65-70C when starting some programs like chrome. Sometimes almost 80C. But after 10 minutes running Cinebench R23 it just reached 65C. I googled for a bit and found several forum threads of people having the same problem. I appears to be some kind of Motherboard bug beacause its quiet random when the temps rise.

My specs: Ryzen 9 5950X, Kraken x73 AIO, MSI x570 Unify, 32GB 3600 RAM, RTX3080, Corsair RM850x PSU.

Ever since 20.11.1+ once they renamed the freesync to Freesync premium I cannot use freesync anymore in combination with vsync on my Vega64, the fps keeps jumping between strange values mostly between 80 and 120. Same goes for a friend of mine that also has a Vega64.

If I disable vsync the problem is gone, but I can also disable freesync and the problem is gone. I've been reporting this issue for a while know (Months) trough AMD Bug Report tool and i'm afraid no one caress enough. I use vsync for not competitive games allot and it's frustrating.

This is how it looks like on 20.11.1:

And this happens on all drivers after 20.11.2 and newer:

System 1:Monitor: Gigabyte AORUS AD27QDGPU: Vega64

Friends System 2:Monitor: Samsung C27HG70GPU: Vega64

I tried DDU, Factory cleanup Windows re-installs however due issue on two separate systems this must be a driver bug. A workaround to eliminate stutters is either to disable vsync or freesync completely.

Edit: Fixed Links

Best Regards,

ID: gl2nyh8

Exactly the same problem here.

Using v-sync to cap casual games at 144 hz isn't possible anymore in combination with freesync. Turning v-sync off results in having 400+ fps (above the 144 hz refreshrate of the monitor) for casual games, which imho makes no sense, in these kind of games, other than stressing my graphics card for no reason.
Problem is apparent with all the drivers that came after 20.11.1

Games in which it's very noticeable:

Ori and the will of the Wisps

When I switch Hades to Vulkan mode: everything works fine, so the problem manifests itself (assumption) in DirectX games.

Hope this can be addressed / fixed in a future driver release.

No, automatic will perform at the factory defaults which are generally crap.

Manual tuning is the way to go, and newer AMD GPUs are better off undervolted if anything else because they'll run hot and loud and potentially overheat otherwise.

I switched to 4k monitor from fullHD and noticed that my browsers start stuttering a lot. After playing around I realized stuttering stops once I launch a game or photo raw editor so I realized the GPU is running in too low power state in Windows. How can I increase the minimum power state so my generic apps don't lag? I tried Performance - Tuning - Manual, Enabling GPU tuning and tried raising Min Frequency but it didn't help. I wouldn't expect GPU running so slowly that my browsers stutter. Any help appreaciated.

Hi fellow AMD Fans, first of all my system looks like this:

- 16G crucial ballistix @ 3200 Mhz
- MSI rtx 2070 Gaming Z

- 1 nvme SSD

- 1 Sata HDD

i am in the process of benching and overclocking my gpu as i noticed that it is running at: PCIe v3.0 x16 (8.0 GT/s) @ x4 (2.5 GT/s)

this means i dont have enough pci lanes? my gpu is in the top slot and as far as i know my ryzen 5 2600 has 20 pcie lanes:

gpu : 16 lanes
NVME SSD : 4 Lanes

=20 lanes?

this adds up to 20 or am i seeing something wrong here?

thanks in advance friends, this coul maybe explain why i have been dissapointed by the 2070 's performance...

Worms World Party Remastered bluescreens my pc when disabling vsync; whatever lastest version October 13th had in Radeon Software; and my pc specs are as shown here on PC part picker. video of it in action: you can briefly see the specific error code as well. background apps include Steam, Discord, and OneDrive.

48 : Anonymous2021/01/31 06:13 ID: glgeb9w

Definitely related to the OS or drivers if disabling v-sync for the one game does that.

That STOP code is one of the most common codes for bluescreens with Windows 10. It can be caused by pretty much anything, with unstable OC, bad drivers, and an OS issue being more common causes.

Should I RMA my Crosshair VIII Dark Hero based on this suspect memory instability?

I have an issue with my ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero where it will not boot with default XMP settings with two samples of a highly binned G.Skill 3600MHz Cl15 B die kit (F4-3600C15D-16GTZ) that I have otherwise used effortlessly and flawlessly for years now.

The issue occur regardless of the processor (occurs with either my Ryzen 9 3950X or Ryzen 9 5950X) that I have installed in the motherboard.

The issue occurs regardless of the BIOS release flashed and I have tried all of them on the website, from version 2601 through 3204.

The memory kit will only boot as high as a memory clock rate 3000 MHz with the XMP timings that would be applied to its default higher 3600 MHz—again only at 3000 MHz—if I set the memory voltage to 1.45V. Clock speeds any higher than 3000 MHz will fail as will voltages lower than 1.45V after the memory training cycle has occurred displaying a system instability message.

Note that both samples of this kit (F4-3600C15D-16GTZ) I have on hand have worked effortlessly out of the box with XMP settings in previous X570-I boards with either a 3400G, 4750G, or 3950X in those boards.

I have been told by several overclocking experts in the community that it is likely a board issue since this memory kit, based on my prior experience, easily clocks to 3600 MHz at stock XMP timings on my older lower-end board. Based on their experience with this premium B die kit (F4-3600C15D-16GTZ), it should easily work again here minimally with my 3950X, which already seen working previously with the same two samples of the kit in my outgoing X570-I.

Gut check: Should I RMA my Dark Hero motherboard at this point given the aforementioned information?

I did my first PC build a few days ago and I got lucky enough to grab a 5600x.

I watched tutorials and followed a specific video to put on my aio (EK-360AIO) I'm confident it's on properly and there was preapplied thermal paste.

My CPU temps are kind of concerning as they idle around 40-45 and easily jump to 50-60 when opening an application or just randomly while I'm browsing.

While under heavy load (1440p 165hz max settings on COD warzone) my CPU sat around 70-80 with my AIO fans getting incredibly loud to compensate.

Any advice / help for a new builder ?

52 : Anonymous2021/02/02 12:47 ID: glq2lnn

Does the AIO make any other unusual noises other than normal pump humming? Ryzen does sometimes idle at slightly higher temps due to stock settings.But the temps during gaming are slightly higher than expected.I would recommend undervolting.

Enable PBO: still get stuck at 546mhz Change power plan to different modes Reset bios to default re-install AMD chipset driver (motherboard is X570 Taichi)

I did try all core OC and it works fine in that mode like all cores run at whatever frequency I set. I tried 4600mhz so it seems that its not a hardware problem but rather some weird state in Windows or something like that. Any help is appreciated.

Error 1603 radeon rx 580, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, B450 Tomahwak Max

Hi all, I have been trying to reinstall the AMD drivers but keep getting error 1603, i have tried everything on the AMD support page for that specific error but have had no luck. I have also tried using DDU while in safe mode.

With both my monitors plugged into the GPU it gives me a duplicated display but only one monitor shows up in windows settings. When looking at device manager the GPU seems to come up under Other Devices as a Video Controller(VGA Compatible) and the monitor comes up as generic monitor. I have tried removing these drivers and rebooting the system but have had no luck.

Looking for some help setting fan curve for 3700X with Wraith Prism and MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon

So I had to update my bios to get the CPU to run and it's running good. Showing boosts of up to 4.3Ghz. But the bios update based on what I can see completely removed the ability to set custom fan curves as it loads a very basic bios instead of the click bios. In research I found this was evidently the way MSI could support the newer chips on this board. I went for the 3700x specifically because I didn't want to get a new board yet but now I'm thinking I may have seriously screwed up here.

When I load up MSI Command Center to set a fan curve boost still works just fine. But if I LOAD a saved curve, it locks the CPU to 3.6ghz. Even if it's the exact same curve I just set manually. If I load it, it locks the clock.

Because I can't set the fan curve in the bios I'm at a loss of what to do here. Default fan curve is way to loud and I really don't want to have to set this manually every single time I boot my PC and I've looked all over the bios and maybe i'm an idiot but I can't find any possible way to alter fan curve or settings in this bios.

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and I'm also new to AMD. Recently I bought the cpu in the title because of the gpu vega that is enough for my casual gaming for this year. I decided to buy the mobo on the title but when I mounted all my setup I had no video. The pc starts, led of case, fan and so on, but no video.

My setup is: Mobo: X570 Aorus Elite Cpu: Ryzen 5 3400G AIO: Arctic Liquid 120mm Ram: G.Skill 16 GB (8x2) RGB 3600 MHz (i checked the code in QVL) or HyperX 16 GB (8x2) RGB 3200 Mhz (code no present in the QVL) SSD: Samsung Evo 860 1TB (installed windows and all my stuff in my last setup) I have also a SSD M.2 Sabrent 250GB because I want to switch the SO inside PSU: Itek 650W plus 80 gold (japan capacitor) Case: Aerocool Ore frontal Mesh

Ps. For the moment no GPU, infact i bought the 3400G in order to wait a restock and a decrease of prices of new gpu.

I suspected that my mobo had some issues because I red that this mobo is ready for my cpu, or am I wrong? So I provided to replace with another one that will come in a few days. I still decided to ask someone that know more about me in case I am going to have the same issue with the new mobo.

Thank you and sorry if I made mistakes.

AMD 5700XT Continuous Green Screen Crashing

Hey Guys!

I'm a HUGE AMD fan boi, That's all I run. And I was super stoked to get the OG AMD Radeon 5700XT(not a partner card).

However, anything after the Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.12.1 Software... it gives me a green screen of death within 60 seconds of loading up my computer. No matter how many different drivers I try.

I see today the 21.2.1 Driver just came out, and I was wondering if anyone has fixed this for themselves? I've been trying to play VR with this PC and it just crashes on me.

I really want to fix this, and the card is out of warranty, and I have tried DDU and reinstalling easily a hundred times. Just no luck with it at all.

Can you note the voltages and power consumption with the working driver and compare it to a new one? This crash is probably not a driver issue but an issue with hardware instability with newer boost behavior

Also try throttling the card to lower clocks on a new driver and see what happens

First thing to do is to shut down the PC and disconnect it from power. Get in there and remove the CMOS battery, wait a minute, and put it back in in order to reset CMOS.

Then only enable XMP and see if anything changes. Also try without XMP and with less RAM installed to rule out the potential that it's caused by conflicts between the CPU and RAM. 3000 series and 5000 series are different architectures so they'll yield potentially different results with the same RAM.

Can anyone help me understand if it’s safe to boost to the limit clock (3000 MHz) if I have an 850 W power supply and have the power limit all the way up since I don’t pay for my power? I am having trouble finding anything online about boosting this card, and I’m not sure how bad it is to boost it all the way.

im Upgrading from an intel i5 7600k to a ryzen 5 5600x. Naturally got a new Mobo, MSI B550-A pro which will require a bios update to work with the 5600x. can i use the single usb i have to both update the bios and install windows 10? i know i need to format the drive to fat32, will that delete the windows 10 installation media i have on there? thank you for your help

Yes (if it has USB bios flashback option). Yes.

You might not be able to have other things stored on the drive when it's used as an installation media. So update BIOS first, and then make the install media.

Amdkdag.sys keeps crashing.

Driver is latest (22.xx.x). DDU ran prior to installation.

I can't play any games at all. It'll just crash and reboot.

What do?

Try disabling CSM in BIOS and then enable 4G decoding and Resizeable BAR in BIOS.

Also, rollback to whatever the latest recommended driver is if you're using the optional driver.

Submit bug report. It usually takes a pile of reports to get the ball rolling...and this is AMD so...

Finding drivers that work for specific titles / uses is the name of the game and swapping back and forth is the only strategy you have.

Hello everyone I just got my new monitor in the mail I will link the model of it HERE I just got it hooked up last night and I'm having issues with the monitor randomly black screening for a few seconds then comes back on. Its mainly when Freesync is on but ive seen it do it while turned off as well. I am using the included HDMI 2.0 cable and I'm running the monitor at 1440p and 144hz. Sometimes the monitor will work just fine with freesync enabled and will let you play a game for a while like it did last night but i sit down at my desk this morning and its back to black screening. Ive tried different games and it seems to pick and chose. Any help would be appreciated I'm running the most up to date radeon software and drivers for my RX 580 8gb.

Hello I own an Acer Nitro 5 laptop and recently the screen has been going through major issues. Everything is very dim and yellow. In the worst case the quality becomes very pixelated and transparent. Attached below are pictures and videos of the issues

For the pictures, I was fortunate enough to have a friend with the exact same laptop of me. By sitting the laptops side by side I was able to take photos that clearly showed the dim corrupt colors of the screen.

Link to color corruption:

For the transparency issues I was able to take videos of the problem occuring in real time. For those who prefer to see pictures instead of the video I also took screenshots.

Link to screenshots:

Link to videos :

Summary of Issue:

-The screen is very dim

-the screen quality also gets pixelated and blurry

-everything is darker and slightly more yellow

-the screen also has "burn in" where everything is transparent

-after images of the desktop and applications are always in front of each other


-Acer Nitro 5 AN515 Laptop

-Processor, AMD Ryzen 7 3750H with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 2300 Mhz

-Built in GPU, Vega 10

-Dedicated GPU, GeForce GTX1650

-OS, Windows 10 Version 10.0.19042 Build 19042

Most Recent WindowsUpdate:

-February 22, 2021

-Name of update, "KB4023057"

Additional Context:

-temperature regularly rises to 65 degrees with random web surfing

-temperature jumps to 90 degrees when gaming

-original temperature were lower when laptop was newly bought,

-50 degrees web surfing, 70 degrees light gaming

Current Situation:

-my screen is now just darkened and slightly yellow after shutting down the laptop for several hours

-I stress tested my laptop with different games

-Immediately after CPU temperatures increase the screen problems worsen. Everything becomes tinted yellow, the transparency is so high that you can see every app on top of each other, and it becomes extremely dark

-Its possible that this is related to software and I am hoping it is. At the moment though all signs point to hardware.

Hi, currently have an Asrock rx 570 series and recently i've been experiencing some issues in regards to it blacking out(flickering) for almost 1-2 seconds then comes back up with the screen being green, like the whole screen is green,(for bout half a sec) before coming back to the normal screen.

im pretty sure its my gpu since the monitor i use is something i use as well for work(plugged to my laptop+using same hdmi=no issues).

im updated to 21.2.3(latest as of the moment). I've also done some quick fixes i saw online (i.e changing display to YCbCr 4:4:4 pixel format and while it did lessen it, i still do experience it from time to time.

note: from what i know, the gpu i got is the store model one. so it isnt like fresh out of the box(yes im cheap, dont @me), though it wasnt really been used heavily though.

my mobo is an Aorus B550 elite and is using a ryzen 5 3600, if that helps.

any adv would do, and maybe also some settings that i could change since im not really that techy and dont have that much knowledge for intensive troubleshooting. and im broke af, so pls no adv to just "get a better one", not unless u think i got a brick gpu.

Ryzne 5 2600 extreme temperature spikes

I have a Ryzen 5 2600, and i have problems with hight temperature spikes. In idle the cPU runs with 40-50 degree, but during gaming i experience temperature spikes up to 70 degree within 1 second, with only 30% CPU utilization.

My CPU cooler is a beQuiet Dark Rock Pro 4, and I already applied fresh thermal paste. I know how to do it. I already repasted my Laptop CPU and GPU, as well as my desktop graphics card (RTX 2070). Now they run about 10-20 degree cooler than before the repaste.

The main problem is when i want to overclock the Ryzen 5 2600. I started with 4GHz at 1-35 Volt. And when i run prime95 (small FFTs), i get an instant temperature jump from 40 degree to 89 degree. This doesnt seem normal to me.

Ok so 15 months ago I ordered a bunch of parts and summoned my child. Main components are 3800x, rx 5700xt and an ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING

So when I assembled I my computer I was under the impression that I wouldn’t need to worry about BIOS stuff and motherboard drivers because I heard it somewhere. I know nothing about BIOS or motherboards and I’m wondering if there are any sort of drivers or settings my setup could be lacking currently. I do have the newest gpu drivers. My pc is performing like a beast but certain things seems at fault.

Don’t know if this is the right place to ask this. But any suggestions or advice would be appreciated, and if you can’t help me I’d love if someone could refer me to somewhere I can get advice. Thanks.

Also if you need more info on my system or settings just tell me how and I will gladly do so.

Summary of Issue

This is my first Ryzen build and my question is whether or not the below timings are normal. I'm trying to achieve standard 1:1:1 relationship between Infinity Fabric, Memory Controller, and Memory Clock but I am wondering if the ~40mhz delta is an issue or not (screenshot and description of timings below).

As it stands my Infinity Fabric clock is set to 1800mhz, Memory Controller Clock 1800mhz, but Memory Clock is between 1763mhz ~ 1780mhz (changes every time I boot) but never approaches 1800mhz.

Karhu Memtest passes overnight test with 0 errors (10,000%+ coverage) so I believe the memory/OC is stable; but why the ~40mhz delta? Is it a timing misconfiguration or am I just being too anal about this?

Could be chalked up to the FSB running lower; the "default" is 100 MHz but it's automatic and can go lower, but I'm not sure if it's supposed to drop that low. You could force it to run at the standard 100 MHz but it may cause instability with your memory OC and need more voltage.

Summary of Issue

MSI Afterburner does not change from 79% Fan Speed. Whether I use an adjusted fan curve or the "Auto" fan speed setting, I do not see any change in Fan Speed % regardless if the GPU is idle or running in game. However, when I look at Fan Speed in the Radeon Software, fan speed is clearly changing between idle and in-game. Is MSI Afterburner not known to work well or read fan speeds properly? Are there other suggested apps to monitor fan speed? Or should I rely on fan speeds shown in the Radeon Software?

Out of curiosity what is the temperature of the room you're running in? I feel like 39 - 44 idle isn't too high, and could be explained by a warm room. If you think your changes to fan settings have made things worse then I'd start by reverting those and seeing if that gets you back to the lower range.

5700xt low fps in Warzone

Computer Type: Desktop GPU: Sapphire Nitro + 5700 xt CPU: RYZEN 7 3700X 8 CORE 16 THREADS Motherboard: MSI B450 Mortar Max


PSU: Corsair HX1200

GPU Drivers: Latest

Chipset Drivers: ?

Background Applications: DISCORD, CHROME

Description of Original Problem: 5700xt is meant to be getting lots of fps in warzone especially at my settings and so I don't know as to why mine may do this. I have a factory oc card on the performance bios so am not sure why.

Troubleshooting: I've changed my settings around to make sure that it is well optimised and best in game settings for fps at 1080p low. I've done a ddu and gotten the lastest drivers as well as a few months ago I did a fresh bios install on my motherboard. I run the GPU on a twin 6+2 and so not sure if purchasing 2 8pin would be good but I don't see why it's gonna buff performance that much.

- Wraith cooler problem -

Hi, I recently bought a ryzen 3600XT and an MSI MPG B550 GAMING PLUS ATX, I'm using the cpu stock cooler but when I play the fans they start spinning very fast and they make a lot of noise, is there any way to adjust them so you don't get too messy? Thanks in advance.

109 : Anonymous2021/01/30 16:41 ID: gldqmo2

Use BIOS to adjust the fan curve, or get a quieter air cooler from the be quiet! brand. They make a lot of coolers that are better than most brands and models with noise pollution.

The Wraith coolers are rather cheaply made and are only designed to run the CPU at stock with the goal of keeping it from shutting down, especially the newer Stealth and Spire coolers which had manufacturing switched from Cooler Master to a cheaper manufacturer to cut cost.

I own two 3950x, but the new one I just purchased is failing to do my rams basic xmp of 3600mhz. Its not the other components as I used both cpus in the same mobo.

It black screen crash+reboots on cinebench or Aida64 if the XMP is set. I can only assume this is an issue with the IF as I know the ram is fine, because again, the other CPU has no trouble. Is there a way to confirm this, so I know if I should just get a replacement? Is there some voltage I should raise/lower to deal with it?

I know its not temps, aida64 reports the crash happening within like 20 seconds, and last reported a like 81C temp. I also had hwinfo open and could see the temps of everything.

Could have lost the silicon lottery in that the IMC (and SOC) needs more voltage than what the motherboard is giving it based on the XMP profile.

SOC voltage affects the integrated memory controller of the CPU. Try raising it from the default 1.1 incrementally until it's stable. You don't want to run the SOC too high (max is 1.2 according to AMD IIRC) because it'll make the IMC (and the CPU) hotter and it's not good for the memory controller.

Compatibility with the XMP profile gets thrown out the window when using more than one kit. The motherboard will only validate for one copy of a given kit, so if you want 4 sticks, look for kits on the QVL that have 4 sticks, but even then... ...Most AM4 motherboards have a "daisy chain" type topology, meaning you overclock better with 2 sticks instead of 4. Your motherboard probably has that topology and not T topology, which is the opposite, working better with 4 sticks. This is probably why you're having issues.

In the past with Ryzen systems, I had a single 2 stick kit of RAM that was on QVL and working fine, but would have issues with overclocking and issues with 3200 MHz XMP were occasional when using 2 kits (4 sticks)

My motherboards were both daisy chained boards.

You'll have to run the 3600 CL15 profile manually and increase voltages (DRAM voltage, DRAM termination voltage, as well as SOC and debug voltages like cLDO VDDP, maybe even loosen the timings a little bit as well.

Okay so backstory, I build PCs for people for a little extra money. I ordered a 5600x from Best Buy a few weeks ago for myself & it hasn’t been used at all. It got thermal paste on it & I threw it in this build for someone who wanted it in theirs. I still wanted one of my own so I found someone selling one off of OfferUp for $330 & I put in my system but I thought about it & decided to switch them between systems because with the one I bought from Best Buy, I’d have a warranty. So I switch them & now this one that I put in my PC is heating up to almost 90C doing trivial stuff like booting into windows or opening Modern Warfare. I’ve reposted this thing like 5 times with varying amounts of paste & nothing is changing it. The previous 5600x was never going over 65C even while running benchmarks with PBO +200 on so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

I am confused about DDR ram and how to achieve the speed I had intended. I have G.Skill (F4-3600C16-16GTZN) that if you set it to Xmp1 you will achieve this. This is mounted on a new Asus dark hero VIII MB.I understand the part about DDR, so I expect to see it at 1800Mhz. On CPUiD it seems confusing to me.

On the SPD tab it shows the memory information Max bandwith DDR4- 2132(1066MHz)

On the memory tab it shows

Timings box Dram frequency 1799.6 MHz

So if the memory tab is showing 1799.6 is it truly operating at 3600 which would be a double of that?

Hi all,

I just upgraded my system to have a Gigabyte A320M-S2H rev 3.0, 16gb of ddr4-3200, and a Ryzen 5 3600. System posts fine and reaches bios, however when I try to boot into Windows media off a flash drive it blue screens every time with “MICROCODE_REVISION_MISMATCH”. I’ve tried updating to latest bios on the motherboard and trying ram sticks individually. No luck. Any ideas for what else I can try or did I just get a dead CPU? I tried installing Ubuntu as well and it just reboots the PC - so it isn’t my installation media.

Any help is appreciated.

126 : Anonymous2021/02/18 06:38 ID: gnuzji9

It's BIOS related, so I'd suggest using an older BIOS and see if that changes anything.

Also, fair warning: you might have issues getting the system to boot with 3200 MHz RAM later, half of the time the A320 board has a hard time with anything higher than 2933.

tl;dr Can you run Adrenaline on 5K iMac w/ Radeon Pro 580X?

To be clear, I've been using bootcamp to run Windows 10 and I play PC games on there just fine. Beautiful graphics 🙂

My only issue is that I recently wanted to save a video clip of a game. I couldn't find anywhere to do that and I heard that it's part of AMD's Adrenaline software, which comes with / works with the 580X I think.

I installed it, and it tells me that I could not find a Radeon GPU in my machine! haha... even when I open up the device manager or whatever windows calls it and see it listed right there.

So yeah, I'm assuming it's a drivers thing... has anyone been able to run this on a Mac / Bootcamp Windows device? Thanks!

I want to bump up my memory to 32GB, but good kits seem to be rare in the UK at the moment.

I'm looking at F4-3600C17D-32GTZR and HX436C17PB3K2/32 currently, although I'm slightly tempted to just splash out on this b-die Team Group 8Pack set.

I could save a pretty penny by going for the Kingston set. Would there be anything inherently wrong with this set (I just plan to set XMP and forget it really)? The fact I don't plan to do any overclocking probably rules out the Team Group set, since this is presumably aimed at diehards trying to push their memory to the limit.

I've heard the Trident CL17 set is b-die, albeit perhaps a lower bin?

EDIT: Nevermind, I've just bought BL2K16G36C16U4R which should be pretty decent. Even with the import tax, should still be a relatively cheap option for 32GB at 3600CL16, and I believe it's Micron e-die.

129 : Anonymous2021/02/19 10:03 ID: gnzq37m

Do not care what specific Die's are used for the RAM, as they also can vary from production queue, basically if you'd buy 2 identical kits, one kit might use Micron e-die, the other one Hynix and so on. As long as you're only using the XMP/DOCP RAM Profile it doesn't matter, it'll always work at the specified speed.

3600MHz CL16 is OK, minimum to go for would be 3200MHz CL16. Ideal: As much MHz as possible as low CL as possible. Though also keep in mind: paying over $20€ just to get a difference of 2 CL is not worth it, aka lowest price first choice.

Screen goes black after motherboard logo when installing 21.2.2 drivers (and suddenly started when I had 20.12.1)

So my problem is basically that most games (especially the more graphically demanding ones) run horribly while on Fullscreen. I can see my framerate being high, even 100+ with no dips below 80, and still it feels crappy.

I tried switching to Windowed mode and well... while that literally solves every issue I met in FS, playing in windowed mode is not really comfortable for me, as icons and white bars from the desktop are really distracting and screw the immersion. I even tried this application called Borderless Gaming on Steam to no avail... Once I run the game with it, all the previously mentioned benefits of Windowed mode simply vanish.

V-sync is turned off, as are Game bar, Game mode, DVR, and Fullscreen optimization on Properties menu. My drivers are the latest, even though I´ve been experiencing these issues with many drivers.

I'm running a Sapphire 5600xt coupled with Ryzen 2600 with 16gb of RAM at 3000Mhz.

I'd really appreciate if you could help me solve this problem, because I know the hardware is fine and can provide a really optimal experience, so it's a waste to see this happen. Thanks in advance!

I can do it through Ryzen Master using the Profile - Manual and set it there which works but basically I want to do the same thing through bios if possible.

First off, reset that setting, that will cause serious instability and crashing.

Second, it's normal and safe to run these CPUs as they are out of the box because it's how they're engineered. You have nothing to worry about, the silicon fitness (FIT) is always preventing the CPU from going too far so it doesn't degrade itself.

According to AMD its safe, but this is not the point. Even if i lower the voltage and the OC, i experience very large temperature spikes. About 20-30 degree, which cannot be a normal behaviour. I think my CPU chip has a problem, maybe a failty temperature sensor or so.

Its most likely the no case fans because the warm air that your cpu and gpu create is just circling around and being recycled, for now until you can get the case fans I would just leave the side panel off so that at least some fresh air can be circulated.

150 : Anonymous2021/01/20 07:43 ID: gjx9s40

It's normal for the 3600 to use that much power at idle.

For the best idle power saving, the use of the following BIOS settings is ideal:

AMD Cool & Quiet = Enabled Global C-state Control = Enabled PPC Adjustment = pState 0 Power Supply Idle Control = Low Current Idle

Also make sure CPPC and CPPC Preferred Cores are enabled, it's necessary for performance as it tells Windows which cores to use first.

Switched from an RTX 3070 to the Rx 6800

I'm experiencing something strange. In the warzone menus with MSI afterburner overlay on I notice a slight jitter almost like my screen is shaking.

In the menus, on the frame graph I have a SOLID horizontal line with 140fps capped with RTSS, but will get a tiny dip/jitter every 2-3 seconds... I checked for this after I noticed micro stutters while tryna play warzone. Shit is driving me nuts. Its not smooth. I'm not sure what else to troubleshoot.

here's what I've tried:

I Used DDU to wipe all amd and Nvidia stuff twice. Re-installed AMD driver software and the 2nd time picked the older edition to see if its any better.

Re-installed warzone

Used gpu stock, undervolted, and overclocked with no success

Increased CPU voltage in case some instability arose from swapping gpu.. I was stable with the 3070 and this 5ghz OC before though.

Should I try turning XMP off? What else should I do?

Not so much an issue, just eyebrow-raising. Hitting pretty toasty temps in a 5600X playing Warzone. Peaks at 85c some days.

(Yes, I know it's rated to 95c, I'd just rather be below this.) This despite moderate CPU usage, seems to hit 2-4 cores heavily and the rest a fair bit less. Anyone else experiencing the same?

(Note: I just noticed the RendererWorkerCount was set to 4 in the options .ini file, I'll change it to six and update if I see a difference.)

- 5600X w/ -15 offset in curve optimiser (no OC)
- Scythe Kotetsu Mk2 (not a particularly beefy cooler, fan only does 1200rpm. This might actually be the culprit)
- Strix 2070
- NR200 case, pretty good airflow so shouldn't be an issue

Summary of the problem:

I have a dual GPU setup where I'm passing through one GPU to a Windows VM through the VFIO Linux driver. This setup has been working for weeks, except two days ago the guest GPU stopped outputting video signal. I appreciate that there is a separate VFIO subreddit but please bare with me because I believe this to be a hardware issue. When booting the VM with virtualized graphics, Device Manager reports Error 43 when looking at the GPU. In Linux I'm getting the following error:

[ 54.539030] vfio-pci 0000:2d:00.0: Invalid PCI ROM header signature: expecting 0xaa55, got 0xffff

This suggests to me that there is a VBIOS issue. Sure enough, GPU-Z in Windows is unable to read the BIOS information. At this point I attempted to flash the BIOS using amdvbiosflash, various tutorials online claim that it is possible even with a bricked GPU if you pass the "-f" option in command line to force the flash. No matter what I tried, amdvbiosflash returns "Failed to read ROM, ERROR: 0FL01"

I've exhausted all troubleshooting steps I could think of. One thing I haven't tried is shorting the pins on the BIOS chip, I'm not a big fan of soldering on my GPU because cleaning it will be a nightmare. My last resort is attempting to reflow in the oven, although I'm aware this could make the situation worse...

I have a 5600x and I think I'm seeing strange temperature readings through open hardware monitor and was wondering if anyone else had encountered similar.

Basically it seems no matter if idle or under load I'm consistently seeing the 3rd core at a significantly higher temp than all the other cores and the 4th core significantly lower, this image is it returning to idle after playing hitman 2, where the cpu peaked at around 82C. My gut is that it's just not reporting correctly and actually all cores are closer to the 45C mark.

This is with the stock wraith cooler / stock thermal paste in an ATX case with decent ventilation. Also stock voltages / clock. I do have an AIO and some thermal grizzly kryonaut but that's waiting for my new case to arrive so was hoping to get this ironed out before that swap.

I am not very computer savvy, so bare with me. The build is a b450 tomahawk max, Ryzen 5 3600, Radeon 5600xt, 16g Corsair pro 3600mhz ram. I updated the bios to the most current using a usb drive and flash button. My problem is how do I load windows? My last build was an Intel, so i was able to boot with the cpu and one stick of ram, then upload windows using a flash drive and download the drivers for the gpu. I have no output through the mb due to not having onboard graphics. When I try to use the gpu I have no video output, which I am assuming is because I don't have the drivers installed due to being a new build and no operating software.

What are the safe GPU temps for the 6800

I have a sapphire nitro+ in a pretty big case with fans and it's sitting at 62 degrees at max load even being left on running all day. It idles at around 25-30.

I feel like that leaves a lot of room for overclocking.

169 : Anonymous2021/02/06 22:01 ID: gma7y5a

RDNA and RDNA2 GPUs have a maximum temperature (junction) of 110 degrees, which is set up that way by AMD/Radeon so that they can push the cards harder. Keep in mind that running temperature will vary from one game to another; more graphically demanding titles will draw out more heat. When I had a 5700-XT, it would run that cool in some games, but other games it would run over 100 degrees.

After 110 degrees Celsius, the card will shut off.

However, when the CPU is doing work and the voltage goes higher, the noise goes away. I can reproduce this consistently. It seems like when the voltage is fluctuating in the lower ranges (0.95V to 1.0V) is when the coil whine noise is heard, which is alot because that is when my chip is idling, which is most of the time (reading stuff, internet browsing).

I think this video explains what is going on:

OMG, the only way to make this go away is to run this perl script that sleeps and runs, it takes up about 8-10% of my CPU, but it keeps the voltage running at 1.3V and power at 35W. This is beyond stupid. Literally running this right now

perl -MTime::HiRes=sleep -e "sleep 0.0009 while 1"

Is there a way to set the minimum voltage to 1.15V or something and I guess by that measure, have the chip running harder than it needs to a bit?!?!

CPUs shouldn't cause coil whine, because it usually comes from transformers or inductors. It would be the motherboard doing it, not the CPU.

Either that or it's the GPU in actuality.

CPU: 5600X

COOLER: Noctua DH14


RAM: 32GB 3200Mhz DDR4

GPU: GTX1060 6GB

Hi all, I've done so basic OC with PBO and curve optimiser, nothing too crazy. When running Cinebench R23, I get temperatures at 80C, but I can see that the CPU power is only 77W in Ryzen Master. Moreover, when I touch the heatsink (during benchmark), it seems only lukewarm/borderline cool to touch. I've tried open benching with side panel off and all fans set to 100%. The Noctua DH14 remains quite cold, but the CPU core temp is still 80C and CPU power at 81W.

I'm not sure if this is just typical Zen3 CPU temp behaviour, or whether I'm having mounting issues and need to remount or repaste. Could anyone advise if this is typical temperatures on such a large air cooler? I thought the TDP for DH14 would be over 100W+

What was your method for paste and mounting?

Temps under oc are high on ryzen but if you did the pea/rice method you should do more paste and spread it.

Unfortunately you have just encountered some unfine wine. If you scroll down or access the previous quarters thread, you will see a large amount of folks with the same issue.

I know it sounds crazy, and hear me out...but you should be happy this is the only problem you have...

Many folks have to reinstall the adrenaline drivers after every reboot! I know the amd sub likes to bash nvidia but as a fan of AMD this isn't an easy pill to swallow but if you want one "that just works" you have chosen the wrong team.

Amd cpu + nvidia gpu = happy place.

Hey all

I'm planning out a new pc build and I'm getting a little stuck on the motherboard part of the build as I'm trying to save money, but I'm not quite sure how the PCIe lanes work and if my plans on saving money may compromise performance in my build.

The motherboard I want to use is the Asus Prime x570-p, or the more expensive option which is the Asus Prime x570-pro. Before I read this one thread I wouldve happily gone with the regular x570-p, but now im afraid that using an m.2 SSD (specifically the Western Digital SN550 1TB) may start using up some of the GPU lanes on the motherboard, causing to half its performance?

Here is the link to the thread that im talking about and the comment that explained what the initial difference between the x570-p and pro that confused me:

/comments/d0olnj/asus_prime_x570p_vs_x570pro/ezbau2a/" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.reddit.com//comments/d0olnj/asus_prime_x570p_vs_x570pro/ezbau2a/

Not sure if my other specs im planning to build the pc with matters, but ill list them anyway:

Ryzen 5 5600x
Enermax Aquafusion AIO 240MM
Asus Prime x570-p or x570-pro
Gigabyte 3080 vision oc
WD Blue SN550 1TB M.2-2280 NVME SSD
Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5¨ 7200RPM HDD
Antec Earthwatts 750W 80+ Gold Semi
4x Enermax SquA RGB 120MM fans (Also wondering if the motherboards have enough connectors for this many fans?)

Thank you 🙂

(Radeon RX6800) Is anyone else using the USB-C instead of the DP or HDMI having issues with the monitor? I bought a USB-C to mini-DP cable and my monitor won't display unless I unplug the cable from the GPU and then plug it back in. Freesync @144hz and HDR work and if the monitor goes to sleep it will wake, but booting into Windows requires an unplug to get the image to display.

TLDR: What do i need to turn on other than FreeSync in settings of monitor and FreeSync in radeon display settings for FreeSync to work?

I dont understand FreeSync (or its not working).

My graphics card is an rx 480 8gb and monitor Acer VG240Y (supports freesync). I also have secondary monitor that doesnt support freesync if that matters.

So i understand what freesync is for and how its supposed to work (i think) but i dont understand setting it up.

I turned Freesync on in my monitor settings. Then i turned it on in radeon software (display section in settings). This is what i found on the amd website but it does nothing.

I then also tried to move it from "AMD optimised" to "On" for the specific games in the gaming tab. Again, it does nothing - games still run on as many frames as they can.

When i searched on the internet, i found some people saying i need to turn on radeon chill, enhanced sync or limit frames in the game itself but on other places i found those are something different from freesync and that they are worse.

So id like to know how to make freesync actually work, thank You.

Google can solve all ur problems. Fast tips. U need to cap ur fps in game 3-4 less frames than ur HZ monitor have. If game have no built in fps limmiter use RTSS or Radeon chill.

Black Screens under load with sound still playing and PC still running

Hello everyone,

So I have run into a lot of black screens lately. It started a few months ago when the computer started black screening sometimes while playing a game (Forza Horizon 4) with a video running in the background. Then a few weeks ago playing demanding games (Battlefront 2, Forza Horizon 4) led to backscreens randomly even without a video running in the background. Now the PC backscreens while playing non-demanding games (World of Warships).

At least initially the black screens would happen in what I consider non demanding scenarios (main menus/paus menus) but more recently they happen all time when in any game. I can't even open World of Warships anymore since the PC will backscreen as soon as the game has loaded.

Note: When the PC backscreens the sound will keep on playing for a few seconds before stopping. Lights and fans are all still on and non of them ramp up or anything like that. The only way to get out of it is to shut down system and start it again.

My Specs:

Ryzen 5 2600X (Water cooled with Corsair water cooler) Vega 56 Sapphire Pulse EVGA 600W bronze rate power supply 16GB 3000Mhz Ram

The PC ran fine until a few months ago. It was built by me with new parts in April 2019. I have tried overclocking etc but my card was not so tolerant so everything is at stock currently except for the ram which is running at xmp. I tried running the Heaven GPU load benchmark to check temps a while back. They were at around 70C for the GPU under full load, but the PC black screened after a while.

Things I have tried:

DDU the drivers multiple times and reinstalling them Full factory reset (all the check marks checked) Old drivers (that existed before I started getting issues)

This leads me to believe that the issue is hardware related as a full factory reset did nothing. One weird thing I noticed today was that all my settings (key binds etc.) in game (World of Warships) got reset after the backscreen. First time this happened.

What are the next steps I should take? I saw that repasting the gpu fixed it for some people. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This has never been an issue for the first 4+ months the game came out, but the last month or two, it seems that every time I am mid flight and watching a stream or cruising Reddit on my second screen, everything just goes black and stops the game. I have tried to reduce the resolution of the stream i am watching, but it just seems to get overloaded eventually.

Any ideas?

I am looking for some help in choosing a motherboard. I am building in a Corsair 4000x white case. Trying to go with a black and white build. Plan to go with 5800x and Corsair Vengeance 3600 RAM and was looking at the ASUS X570-Pro, I actually ordered one and it showed up and I think it was either used or someone tried it and returned it. It had no cables, there was a dent on the corner and the M2 heatsink cover was loose in the package so I returned it. At first I was just going to order the same one but after looking around I decided to go with the Asrock X570 Tiachi but have not ordered it yet. I'm seeing more and more 550s out there and I just don't know enough. Should I just get a $150 board and call it a day? I'm not an advanced user who will be over clocking etc, I don't mind spending a little extra to have a nice machine but also don't want to just piss money away. Tyia for any advice.

Hi everyone,

my friend is building a pc with a msi b550 and a 5600x. since new gpus are impossible to find he wanted to use the gtx970.

The issue is that even after updating the bios he is stuck at the "boot" led. The screen will remain black during boot with both hdmi and display port. Checking in the compatibility page of msi the gtx 9x0 series is not listed as compatible.

He tried to plug the SSD from his old pc and a usb key to install windows 10 but nothing changes.

Is it possible that is the issue? Or it may be something else?

205 : Anonymous2021/01/31 18:24 ID: gli5bt6

If MSI said that it isn't compatible and won't actually work, then it's probable. I recommend testing a newer GPU on that system to see if it's actually the 970 causing it, because it may not be the case.

Hi, long time NVIDIA user who's just picked up a 6900XT for my wife yesterday. So far, it's been great, and has offered a decent performance bump over the 3080 she had previously.

Obviously the overclocking is a bit different on AMD cards, but I'm getting my head around that easy enough I think.

What I am struggling to get my head around though is the Adrenalin software/drivers. It looks great, and as a UI it's light years ahead of NVCP, however a couple of things have got me a bit stumped.

The custom resolution feature doesn't seem to work at all? Wereas the NVIDIA one was super easy to use, and would let you do pretty much anything including overclock your monitor with a couple of simple clicks.

From a quick Google, it sounds as if it's possibly just broken ATM/doesn't play well with multiple different displays of different resolutions/refresh rates etc? Has anyone found a reliable way to get it working, or do I just need to sit on it and await a future fix?

We game on 4k TVs that technically have three native resolutions, 4k@60hz, 1440p@120hz, and [1080p@120hz...we](mailto:1080p@120hz...we) should have done 4k@120hz too, but Samsung screwed us over by saying it would come in a software update, but the 82" Australian model was the only one that didn't get it (as they omitted a one connect box connection for it so limited to HDMI 2.0b basically).

Anyway, previously with NVIDIA cards, if you switched to 1440p or 1080p it would automatically run at 120hz, however with the AMD card installed, it always forces a 60hz refresh rate. This is particularly annoying as I want to use VSR (or a custom res) to do 4k/5k@120hz with a 1440p@120hz active signal resolution.

I can change it via the Windows display driver supported resolution list, however only to 1080p/1440p@120hz, as any of the VSR resolutions will just force it to display in 1440p@60hz mode.

Clearly we're overcomplicating things massively by being TV/couch gamers here (and said TVs having several 'native' resolutions that run at different refresh rates), but I feel there should still be a solution to this given it worked fine with NVCP/NVIDIA drivers.

I've also not found a way yet to make it use 120hz in game when you have the desktop set to 60hz (for desktop browsing 4k@60hz is superior, but for gaming 120hz/preferably a VSR at 120hz is a far better experience.

NVCP had an "application controlled" or "prefer maximum refresh rate" setting you could set by application, but I can't seem to find any alternative other than changing the desktop resolution/refresh rate everytime.

Very much sounds like the two issues are linked, as the AMD software/drivers are defaulting to the lower refresh rates and treating them as native when they're not.

Anyone else having issues like this/have any sort of solution/workaround for it at all?

Hope I'm not just being stupid! And thanks!

Weird behavio on 5950X

Hi all,

I recently was able to find a 5950X and ever since I installed it, I have been having weird issues. Ambient temp is around 21°C, but idle temps are around 65°C (one core at 4.9GHz, all others sleeping). However, if I run blended Prime95, it puts all 16 cores to 4.6GHz and the temps DROP to 62°C.

When I ran my 2700X, idle was around 35°C and blended Prime95 peaks around 65°C. Same BIOS revisions (both 3.2 and 3.8).


ASRock X570 Taichi (BIOS Rev 3.8; originally 3.2, updated to 3.8 through BIOS flashback per ASRock instructions) 32GB (2x16GB) G.Skill RipjawsV DDR4-3600 CL16 EVGA RTX 2080 Super FTW3 Hybrid Noctua NH-D15 Paste spread is good and even every time I pull the heat sink.

Also, when running 3.8, I cannot get the system to POST with any RAM frequency above 2133MHz, with or without XMP. I never had this issue when running BIOS 3.2 (which I had to downgrade to, thank goodness for BIOS flashback).

Thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I plan on upgrading my gpu and am wondering if I should go with 3080 or 6900xt. I was really originally gonna go with the 3080 ti because I don't feel that 10 gb of vram is enough but that was delayed indefinitely. I will do some raytracing though. I've also had lots of problems with amd drivers and software and Nvidia software offerings sound so much better. Should I just wait? I should probably mention that my gpu is probably gonna die in the next few months.

216 : Anonymous2021/01/24 06:06 ID: gki1dh7

If you're after raytracing, you're better off with NVIDIA because Ampere is the clear winner as far as raytracing performance, whereas with normal rasterisation performance it's really just dependent on what's available and more affordable for you that matters.

People are also making too much of a big deal over VRAM capacity -- 8GB is literally more than enough for most games at 4K resolution. There aren't many games that need more than that, and even then, most games won't run very well on most GPUs at 4K anyway at settings that's using that much VRAM to begin with.

Pretty much the only reason AMD has all of their RDNA2 cards offer 16GB is to attract buyers, whether that be miners, or users that THINK they need that much VRAM when in reality they don't. The miners do, but gamers really don't.

This might be a retarded question but I was just unboxing my 6900xt reference that arrived. At the back of the card, the GPU die is little exposed (like the square area that many cards have exposed). I might have accidentally touched the part when I took the GPU out. Can it be bad? It doesn’t visually look damaged or anything. Rest of my computer arrive next week so I can install then

My 5900X has suddenly started running 10°C hotter than previously. This morning it was 41°C on idle and 70-71°C in Warzone, now it is constantly at 50-51°C in idle and goes as far as 81°C in Warzone. I have done nothing between this morning and this evening. I just installed new GPU drivers (461.40) and launched MSI DC to redo my RGB on ram and GPU. Has someone an idea what could cause this? I don't have programs running in the background that would cause hugh CPU usage.

EDIT: for those it might help: this piece of ... Dragon Center messed my case fans. They ran at 200rpm instead of 600rpm and never really ramped up. I uninstalled DC and everything works fine.

I took a look at my BIOS and it was indicating that my CPU Target Frequency was at 4050MHz.
My processor is a Ryzen 7 3700x which has 3.6 GHz / 4.4 GHz.
I also noticed my Ratio being at 40.5.

I am a newbie when it comes to this stuff and in general don't touch anything in bios, except setting my RAM to the correct speed.

Are those numbers fine or is my CPU being pushed above it's base clock for no reason?

What should be the target Frequency? the base speed of 3600MHz, the max speed of 4400MHz or somewhere in between(4050MhZ)?

My gut is telling me to change the ration from 40.50 to 36, but I'm worried I'll be making my CPU underperform(also worried that I know nothing about what I'm changing). My goal is to pretty much keep everything stock and get the most performance out of it (I'm a game

Just checking with anyone who has the same Mobo. I've had the same issue twice now on my Asrock X570 Phantom Gaming 4, has the Lan port on but doesn't turn on at all when pressing the power on button. No fans, no beep codes, no chipset fan, nothing.

The first time it happened was on the day I first got it and my 3600x, I thought I killed my 3600x, and I tossed the X570 PG4 back in its box for a few months while I used an MSI B450 Tomahawk.

I decided once I got my 5800x that I would try to revive the X570 PG4 as it had a bios that supported the Zen 3 processor, and to my surprise it posted and I was able to update the bios. Since then I had no issues with the board, no random shut downs or crashes out of the ordinary. But it happened for a 2nd time.

I have a replacement X570 PG4 on the way, but in folk's opinion is the above behavior normal for the X570 PG4? I know people have had mixed experiences with the X570 PG4, but I am holding out hope that maybe the 3.60 bios is unstable and I can revive my current board in 2 months.

Lastly, what do people think is the problem? With the problem clearing itself the first time with just waiting, I'm inclined to think its a capacitor issue, with one of the power modules in an unknown state that makes it so that the board doesn't turn on.

Is it a problem with the X570 PG4 VRM / Power delivery? Should I expect my replacement board to have the same issue?

Temps are fine, what do you expect? 8 CORES to run at 10°c max?

As long as your temps are 90°c or below everything is fine, if you're using the Boxed Cooler.

Third Party coolers usually hover between 50-85°c, that is in both idle and full load.

This isn't 10 year old hardware, this is all new and it works differently in terms of temperature.

Hi, I just finished a 5900x build, and it seems like my clock boost is stuck. It is always hovering around 4950mhz no matter what I'm doing. I tried re-installing Windows and all the drivers, and the problem seems to begin after I install the AMD chipset driver from the MSI mobo support page. Prior to installing, I can see my CPU moving between 3600-4950 depending on load. What should I do about this? My temps jump between 33c and 60c while I'm just doing routine desktop stuff. Thanks

So I'm having a bit of an issue with my Ryzen 9 5900x. It won't pull full wattage when I turn on PBO. I have increased every power limit I can find and still can't get it to pull more than 140W under full load. This limits me to around 4.3GHz all core frequencies which is terrible for this chip with PBO enabled and a custom curve set like I have done. My PPT is set to 180.


CPU: Ryzen 9 5900x (PBO enabled with custom settings)

CPU cooler: Corsair H115i 280mm AIO with push-pull fan configuration

Motherboard: MSI x570 Gaming Edge Wifi


RAM: 32 Gb G Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3200 cl 16 (OC to 3444 cl 16)

PSU: Corsair 850W 80+ Gold

Case/cooling: Thermaltake View 51 with 11 corsair LL120 and LL140 fans

OS: Windows 10 build 19042

If I run fewer threads in cinebench the power consumption will increase (it is around 155W when I run 16 threads) and the frequencies go up. I want more power draw and higher frequencies at full load. I can get the chip to pull 190W if I use the MSI "game boost" in my motherboard BIOS, but that disables PBO and I get worse frequencies. Not sure if this is the chip or the board that is causing this. Everything I see online shows this chip pulling 180+ watts on PBO and getting MUCH higher R20 scores than I can get. My max is about 8400 R20.

246 : Anonymous2021/02/23 04:11 ID: gofa5f6

What is your stock multi and single core scores? I would expect multi to be around 8000.

Your pbo score kinda lines up with what I have seen from multiple reviews (8400-8550). Keep in mind the motherboard used also plays a role in this, windows version, other shovelware installed... You do know reviewers use a stripped down version of windows to achieve the top scores right?

You will have to learn to OC better to get near 9000, but your pbo score is fine as well as the 4.3ghz boost, hope you weren't expecting all core to boost as high as single core?

There's a sweet spot for PBO2 that you need to find. Only then will you find the actual limit of your CPU bin.

I'm a noob when it comes to radeon cards and LG OLEDS, however as I understand it they aren't a good match?

Managed to get a 6800XT and loving it, running it with a standard 4k 60hz tv at the moment but want to get the LG cx oled 120hz freesync tv.

As far as I can tell from reading on forums it's not a good match, freesync doesn't work 120hz doesn't work, not sure what's true..

Would love to hear from someone actually running 6800xt and LG OLED48CX.

Freesync problems are real. I wouldn't rely on freesync. AMD needs to sort themselves out with that.

I would wait to see if next years model is better at reducing blur and rock a 1440p 165hz monitor instead. This coming from a guy who has every model lg oled 55 inch from 2016....

It is not like any gpu can drive 4k120hz yet anyways outside of maybe doom/csgo.

Even dual 3090's does not make 4k120hz a reality in demanding games.

I have concerns regarding 5950x temp

Idle temp is around 35-40

If I'm using google tabs and youtube, it hovers around 40-45 (always spiking up around 50+ when you first open youtube/chrome then goes back down)

But if I'm playing BFV, this thing goes to upwards of 85c+, sometimes around at 90c.

I've also tested FO4 but it wasn't having a temp issue. Didnt really test a lot of games, since I have limited amount of games that pushes benchmark like BFV. But I heard COD Cold War also abuses the cpu temp as well.

Using h100i pro and I've already re-installed the cpu twice thinking it wasn't sit perfectly, replaced paste. Still the same result.

I just put a ryzen 5 3600 in my pc, everything ran prefect until i swapped cases, i have a cooling fan that has the green, yellow and red lights to show how the cpu is running and after i swapped cases it always runs on yellow. My temp always stays in about the 70-70° range when gaming though so idk if that's a problem. I only play modern warfare and warzone. Now i swapped cases like 2 days ago and since then I've been getting a skipped frames notification in my streamlabs which is tied into high cpu usage, i went into my task manager today and while in game without my stream running and only my game open i was running at about 70% cpu usage. does that seem high to anyone?

Last year I updated my PC and saw almost no improvement in FPS in CSGO, other games like rust improved dramatically however. Im suspecting it's the CPU bottlenecking me even though on paper it's far more capable. Any recommendations on a better CPU to suit the AM4 socket with the same chipset as that supports the 3500x? I really want to invest in a 240hz monitor but barely see 200fps on lowest settings, whereas my friends with 10 year old i7 6700k manage 300+ with ease.

Hey guys,
got a short question regarding the AMD 6900XT in combination with a capture card.

Is it possible to clone the videosignal from the displayport output to another output in the driver settings?

I know that its possible to clone the videosignals in the nvidia driver but I havent found the option in the AMD driver yet.

I ask this question because the capture card got only a hdmi passthrough and because of that I would loose some HZ. As I know HDMI only supports maximal 120hz and Displayport supports up to 240hz.

I'm not sure if this is normal or not, so I'll ask here. So I checked in HWInfo64 and it's reporting voltage at around 1.4V at idle on a Ryzen 5 3600XT. That's what it reports under the SV12_TFN sensor, and the same thing is reported under the core voltages. I haven't overclocked or changed any voltage settings, so is this normal? btw i'm not having any thermal issues, i'm idling at about 31C and under load i see it get up to maybe 55-60

Probably a bad reading, as I very much doubt you'd be idling at 31C if it was really using 1.4V. As long as the temps are good it's fine.

Can't change any setting in Wattman (settings won't apply and they return to default values), most importantly the fan control is non existent, which I really need. Afterburner overclocking works but I can't do anything with the fan.

GPU-Z screenshot (what I'm worried about is that HP (vendor) modded the bios to block any kind of changes).
Also, could I safely return it to the stock RX 5700 XT BIOS or could have HP made some changes to block BIOS changes? I don't wanna ruin the card but I'm afraid the temps will ruin her in the long run. 80° C when gaming something light and the fan is sitting at 23% and ramps up to 30-40% once it passes 80°C to stay at that temperature.

Technically no but a decent even $40 air cooler will most likely knock 10-15c off those temps which means your chip will boost higher.

It's normal.

Ryzen will use higher voltage and boost higher in light loads, even the slightest load from the OS will trigger a boost. It's safe because the Silicon Fitness will not allow unsafe voltage (based on the current flow)

How "safe" is Ryzen Master's Auto OC feature to keep on at all times? Turning it on gives me about 300 extra points (about 2fps) more in the CPU test, but when reading the documentation:

Auto Overclocking: By Default values for CPU - Boost Override CPU, PPT, TDC and EDC will be set to maximum the motherboard BIOS allows for CPU. By Default values for APU Boost Override CPU, Boost Override APU GFX, PPT, TDC(CPU), EDC(CPU), TDC(SOC) and EDC(SOC) will be set to maximum the motherboard BIOS allows for APU s. User cannot change any values in this mode.

This does not actually sound like a very healthy thing to keep enabled by default. The temperature never went above 70 degrees so far though.

267 : Anonymous2021/01/15 17:10 ID: gjd0kj2

It's fine. No matter how high you raise the power limits (PPT, TDC, EDC), you'll always be held back by either the motherboard VRM, the silicon fitness, or both.

The Silicon Fitness AKA FIT protects the CPU from going too far with voltage and clocks so it doesn't cause damage to itself, so raising power limits could do literally nothing if the FIT were to already be limiting it, and the FIT will not allow what isn't safe, all Auto OC does is raise the power limits from the defaults for your motherboard based on what AMD has set, and by default on boards rated for ~65W CPUs, the limits are very low, so that's why you got a gain just from turning on Auto OC mode.

It raises power limits in the hopes that you can get up to a +200 MHz boost clock, but getting that is only on a single core and depends on the load, temperature, and FIT. Assuming your motherboard can handle it, which most of the cheapest B-series chipset motherboards don't.

You may get 5FPS extra and that's really not enough for such an investment. It is completely useless to change that processor for 3600X. 3400G is enough for you to play online games and 3600x will not bring you any significant benefit. If you do not want to buy 3080 or 6800XT then this upgrade is unnecessary.

I have got a Ryzen 5800x. I have noticed since getting this cpu, when playing warzone if I open the map, sometimes I end up dropping frames to 10/15fps and I get 500+ latency (which I find strange).

I have just opened streamlabs, which should be a doddle with this CPU and if I do not have performance mode enabled the menu FPS dropped to 5. I am not sure if these are CPU related but it is the only thing I have changed.

Hey all,

I just installed a 5600x into my machine (same cooler and all other components unchanged), replacing my 2600x.

I saw my FPS DOUBLE in WoW and triple in LoL (only games I've tested thus far).

No benchmarks I've seen have shown that kind of performance boost. Did I have a bad 2600x? Is this normal? Needless to say I'm absolutely thrilled.

Hello Reddit,

Since the day I bought my very first PC rig I had a pretty annoying issue while running certain games: my screen would suddenly turn completely green and my pc would reboot itself, following a high pitched vent sound.

I've always ignored the issue because it was pretty rare and I thought it was related to overheating. Recently though I really can't stand it especially while playing online.

Here's my specs:

processor: AMD RYZEN 5 3600 6 core processor 3.6 GHz

RAM: 16 GB

GPU : AMD Radeon RX 5700

Baseboard Product: B450-A PRO MAX (MS-7B86)

I always check my Radeon Software app to make sure that the drivers are up to date. Right now I'm using the new version 21.1.1

Do you guys have experienced this problem? Is there any fix or should I contact the tech support of the company that sold me the rig? Let me just add that the last time I contacted them they only made me reinstall windows 10 from scratch and that didn't solve the problem at all.

Thanks! (:

Have you checked your temperatures? Maybe your CPU/GPU are overheating, so in order to avoid damage they shut off. Try to monitor the temperatures while gaming and see if they reach more than 85 - 90 Celsius (or the equivalent in Fahrenheit)

281 : Anonymous2021/01/22 17:08 ID: gk7d3su

can you please provide details about how to repro (eg. what game(s) affected, how long you play, modes if applicable, settings, etc)? did you try clean installing the driver?

Summary of issue:
When I boot up Windows, I see my LG HDR 4K turn on first, with the Windows 10 splash screen, then it detects my new Asus VG27A and sends a signal to it but the LG HDR 4K monitor goes off. I am unable to see the splash/login screen on the 2nd monitor. At this point, I have to switch inputs on the LG to something else and back to DisplayPort to get both monitors to come back on. In the meantime, I've blindly typed in my Windows login pin to at least get to my desktop. What am I doing wrong?

I've got a 5600X paired with a ASUS B450-F Gaming. I'm still running 3000Mhz RAM.

The QVL list says that Ryzen 2nd Gen only supports up to 3200Mhz.

Does this apply to the 5600X as well? Because then I'm not even going to bother, right? A 200Mhz upgrade seems pointless.

290 : Anonymous2021/02/02 16:02 ID: glqtkkf

It does not apply to 5600X.

Zen 3 officially support up to 3600 Mhz RAM.

Zen 2/3 architecture runs infinity fabric at half of RAM speed usually. you will gain a bit of performance if you get faster ram, up to 3600 MHz.

Hey all, first time builder here.

I was wondering if the pre applied thermal paste that comes with the cooler is good enough for light gaming.

Also my kid brother picked up the cooler and the paste got removed a little about the size of half a rice grain... Would that be an issue? Should I spend more for better thermal paste? I didn't get one already because I was already pushing my budget.

292 : Anonymous2021/02/02 16:01 ID: glqtfx1

It's fine to use. The pressure applied by the cooler will spread out the paste onto the CPU. Don't worry about it.

293 : Anonymous2021/02/03 21:04 ID: glwq4f4

If 5 to 10 bux for paste ruins your budget you shouldn't be buying a computer.

Replace the stock paste before it hardens at least? I am sure in a year you can come up with 10 bucks.

Grain of rice is bad application. Use more and spread it out. The stock paste will eventually harden and "weld" your cpu to the cooler faster than quality pastes will....Could cause bent pins in the future especially if you have to remove cooler and don't warm it up.

Probably silicon lottery, you've reached your chip's limit.

Also, anything above what your 5600X's FIT allows in high current will be lethal to the silicon, so manual OC on 7nm chips like Ryzen 3000 and 5000 should be done with extreme caution. FIT voltages are unique to the chip; one 5600X may allow 1.29v for example at high current, while another may only allow 1.24v. 1.35v is definitely going to damage the majority of chips.

When you manually OC, you disable the FIT, so it can't prevent damage to the chip. So I hope you've monitored what voltages your 5600X was doing in high current all-core loads, or you could very likely be damaging the silicon, which means you won't get the clocks you're getting right now a couple of months down the line with the voltage you're using right now.

Kernel Power error 41 is just a code for when the system loses power unexpectedly, that's not a BSOD code.

You need the STOP code from when the system actually blue screens, because error 41 can be caused by something as simple as flipping the power switch on the PSU.

I've had a 5900x in my desktop since December. In that time I've had 6-7 occurences of booting my computer to be shown a screen telling me that I've either replaced my CPU or the fTPM is corrupt or invalid. It tells me the options are to press N to temporarily disable the TPM and get the prompt again at next boot or press Y to reformat the TPM. The only thing I use the TPM for is Windows disk encryption via bitlocker. This results in having to enter my long bitlocker key at the next Windows boot.

Is anyone else encountering this issue on Ryzen 5000? Previously I had a 3900x (which is now in my server) and never had this issue.

While I don't know your setup, and your need for a TPM, I found my TPM was redundant once I started to use the latest Zen processors, because they have tpm capability in the processor (ftpm, firmware tpm). You might be seeing clashes.

I have a very strange Issue with these specs:

1TB SSD & 1TB HDD Mainboard: BIOSTAR A960D+ RAM: 8GB DDR3 CPU: AMD-FX 6300 - 6-Core 3.5GHZ GPU: AMD-SAPPHIRE R9 380X PSU: Seasonic SSR 650GB OS: Windows 10 Education 1909

My CPU is throttling to 1.3 GHZ when reaching around 57-60° without increasing my CPU-Fan-Speed.

I set the Motherboard-Fan-Control in BIOS-Settings to Performance. This doesn't change anything.

Windows-Energy-Settings => High Performance is causing an extreme drop. When setting this to Default, the Drop isn't as hard, but still the throttle proceeds but a bit slower with 3.5GHZ => 2.9 GH 1.7 GHZ => 1.3 GHZ.

I set a Stress-Test on it to prove that there indeed is something wrong.

I'm using Radeon-Software as my GPU driver. Might be possible, that this didn't install proper drivers for my CPU? I have no clue.

Can anybody help me? I would really appreciate it.

302 : Anonymous2021/02/07 17:51 ID: gmhbo6p

It's definitly the Motherboard VRM.

Background: What Makes Up A VRM?

One, or several, of these components heat up and then the BIOS throttles the power input and output, so less heat on the VRM components, for the CPU therefore CPU runs at lower frequency.

What can be done? HWiNFO64 might have a Motherboard VRM sensor which could give you an idea at which temperature it throttles. Top blow CPU cooler, if its a tower CPU cooler, or an additional case fan next to the VRM for more cooling.

CPU undervolting or CPU frequency reduction with less VCore is worth a try as well. Small costum heatsinks for the MOSFET's could be an option, but that is within the modding realm and unfortunatly no experience with it.

It sounds like it could be a dead card, you're probably correct, since when you put your old GPU in, it works fine.

It was probably used for mining and got damaged over time by the stress, a common issue that miners face, and the RX 570 was the most common GPU used for mining in the past because of the 8GB model and low price.

Quick question:

My r7 3800x booted 'slow', with 3 cores running at 530mhz. A reboot fixed the issue. Found an old thread here where it said switching the power plan back and forth may also fix this. Anyone know if there's an underlying issue? Aka should I RMA my 2 months old cpu, or is this something that's no real cause for concern?

Extra details:

This happened after I replaced one of the case fans that was a bit noisy. System was powered down and unplugged from the wall at the time.

No overclocking, my cpu temp is under 75c at full tilt due to a darkrock pro 4, rest of the system is pretty standard and I doubt it has anything to do with this issue. Event viewer reported the following under 'information' event id 55 :

You could be experiencing bottleneck if I’m not certain though, also you can make sure that all your core clocks and you ram are running as high as they should some times out of the factory they will be set lower for stability purposes.

Just installed latest AMD drivers for my Ryzen 2600 and USB extensible drivers changed

I'm using a Gigabyte B450m aorus elite board. Previously I used a 2400G and when I used usbtreeview to look at my usb ports, I saw a number of USB 3.1 extensible host controllers.

Today I switched to a ryzen 2600, and in the same usbtreeview screen, I notived all of them changed to just 2 - a USB 3.1 extensible host controller, and a USB 3.0 extensible host controller.

On the previous chip, I had a usb superspeed ssd that would always connect to the 3.1 version, but now it only goes to the 3.0 xtensible controller. In addition, one port always shows an exclamation mark and is constantly in a "device is enumerating" state - port 5 in the picture. This did not happen before.

Does anyone know if something is wrong?

Hello guys,

I just received my 5600X and I am tring some basic overclocking settings, but afterall I am not able to push the CPU beiond 4.75GHz with stable results. By the way I don't have a real goal in mind, I just want to use the 100% of my CPU without risking to damage it. At the momnent my build is as follow (keep in mind the GPU is not what I would like to have but I got an RX580 till I will succede to get a 6800XT):

- PSU - be quiet! STRAIGHT POWER 11 GOLD 750W

- MOBO - ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

- CPU - AMD Ryzen 5600X

- RAM - G.Skill TridentZ RGB F4-3600C17Q-32GTZR


- GPU - Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580

- AIO - GamerStorm Castle 360EX

In the BIOS I have done the following change:

- Ai Overclock Tuner - D.O.C.P.

- Memory Frequency - DDR4-3600MHz

- FCLK Frequency - 1800MHz

- CPU Core Ratio - 47.50

- VDDCR CPU Voltage - Manual at 1.32500


- VDDCR CPU Load Line Calibration - Level 3

- VDDCR CPU Current Capability - 120%

- VDDCR SOC Load Line Calibration - Level 3

- VDDCR SOC Current Capability - 120%

With this settings and using HWiNFO64 for monitoring the CPU package gets around 30-40 Celsius degrees on idle/light use, while in full load on the stability test (30 minutes) of Cinebench R23 it gets 70/75 Celsius degree (20 Celsius degrees ambient temperature). I have tried to rise the CPU voltage till 1.3500 but it seems I can't even get 4.775GHz without crashing during the Cinebench R23 stability test. At the moment I am able to get on C23 a score of 12131 for the multi core and  1563 for single core test.

What else should I triy? How far can I go without the risk to fry/degradete the CPU over the next months?

Am i missing something?Is there a way to do this?Or is there another software i can use ?

Is anyone experiencing erratic behaviour on their 5000 series cpu's.

From idle, if i move the mouse to open anything, even a folder, the system ramps up the fans, the half a minute later they show down. New system install with hardly anything running in the background Steam, GoG galaxy, Discord).

It's normal because of how Ryzen 3000 and 5000 CPUs work.

They will boost when there is any sort of load on the CPU to get the work done faster, and then downclock when there's nothing going on, causing fluctuations in temperature and fan speed.

Ryzen 5000 in particular runs toastier out of the box so there's not much that can be done except getting better or quieter cooling. Lowering fan speed limit won't really help much because the CPU will just get hotter sooner and won't boost as high, resulting in potential performance loss.

CPU cooler recommendations for the 5800x?

I have a Noctua NH-D14. It's served me well and cools this chip well in gaming and desktop, however when Folding@Home it regularly bounces off the 90C limiter, while not the end of the world. It's dropping my performance and would prefer to stay just under if possible.

Any upgrade ideas?

331 : Anonymous2021/01/30 16:46 ID: gldr7df

Ryzen 5000 needs rather expensive cooling because AMD raised the bar with the limits for these CPUs. They boost more heavily, for longer durations, and as a result will push most cooling solutions to the limit.

If you can afford it, run a custom loop. Otherwise, the biggest air or all-in-one liquid cooler your case supports is as good as you're going to get without undervolting your CPU.

So I've got a pretty meh XFX RX570 8GB and I'm recording gameplay using the radeon software thing and it's at a pretty high bit-rate, something like 4gb for 15 minutes of video, on task manager gpu video encode sits at 75% usage when on desktop

Would game performance be effected by me using such a high bit rate or do games not use video encode

I'm getting a weird, specific problem, I use foobar2000 to create a quick overlay to tell me what song is playing when I switch songs, every time I do it, League of Legends freezes for a split second, it's SUUUUPER annoying and I'm not sure what I should do to try to fix it, the only solution is to stop the overlay but I'd really prefer it stay on. There was a previous driver I had that didn't ever have this problem, but I unfortunately can't remember which one it was, but it would've been about 8-12 months ago.

I'm using an RX5700XT on the latest drivers, Ryzen 7 3700X CPU, ASUS X570 mobo, and three screens - GL850 @ 144hz/display port, ASUS VS247 @ 60Hz/display port and a BenQ GL2460 @ 60Hz/DVI-D -> displayport adapter. Windows 10 x64 latest 2004 updates also. I have a video here that shows what I'm talking about, noting the FPS at the top right and the overlay at the top in the middle of my screen, it dips down to ~129 frames for a sec.

There's also another issue where if my PC is booted for more than a few hours, I cannot get the AMD Radeon Software open. I right click my desktop and try to open it, I get a loading cursor, and then nothing happens.

Anyone know where I can start to diagnose these issues?

New bios update that supports the 5k series CPU.


Ryzen 5 5600x

MSI x470 gaming plus

16 GB corsair vengeance ddr4

AMD rx vega 56

Went for a upgrade on CPU from ryzen 5 2600x >>> ryzen 5 5600x. Saw that the new beta bios for my mobo came out (

to support zen 3 chips and so I did a bios update and then installed a new CPU. Everything is running smoothly until I tried using anything that has virtual machine-related. When I ran an android emulator (bluestacks) I would get the blue screen of death stating when trying to launch the application, "Pc ran into a problem and needs to restart" and it reboots. I tried different emulators (noxplayer) and I get the same problem. I also even crashed using zoom and another application that used a little CPU power. This led me to believe it is just the optimization of the beta bios or something with the CPU(which I don't think so), but I am not certain and I'm hoping for a solution ASAP. Emulators can wait, but zoom meetings can't. Additional information is that when I used my 2600x everything was working.

Things I tried:

the repasting of thermal paste on CPU Cleaned CPU and ram w/ alcohol tried to turn on SVM mode in bios but can't find it because of the new beta bios UI, even so, it should not give me a blue screen if I did not have SVM mode on...

I went and looked up if anyone else had this issue, but considering I literally did the bios update the day of the release, I couldn't find anything that has the same problem as me.

Thoughts or help from anyone?

My PC will sometimes start to freeze up whenever I launch a game. This happens on ANY game. I've never been able to figure out why this has been happening though. I have had my PC for a little over a month now. Here are the specs of my PC:

CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x

Graphics Card: PowerCooler Red Devil RX 5700XT

Mobo: Asus ROG STRIX B450-F

Storage: 500gb Inland NVME SSD

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200

PSU: PowerSpec 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold

I have not overclocked my graphics card. It always will happen when starting up a game, not already in one. It will always start to freeze when it says that it is optimizing items in the corner. What happens when it freezes is that I can't interact with any application windows at first. Then, I can't click on anything in the task bar. It slowly starts to freeze up more and more. Pressing my power button doesn't even shut down the PC, so I have to kill the power to it to shut it off.

Please let me know if you have any idea how to fix this issue. Thank you!

Hello. This is my first time using reddit to make a question. I usually google all things or look things up here in reddit but I haven't found any answers to my questions. The thing is I have a laptop with a Ryzen 4700u APU using two sticks of 8GB DDR4 RAM 3200 MHz CL22 1.2v so no XMP mode or whatever (I guess).

Since the integrated graphics use the ram as Vram I thought the memory speed for the GPU would be 1600 MHz but it is not. It only report 1333 MHz (all apps show the same info including the AMD Radeon Utility Software)

I thought maybe the ram are not running at full speed but they are (checked using HWinfo64, CPU-Z and windows 10 task Manager confirms my ram are 3200 MHz). So I am wondering if this GPU max out at 1333 MHz for Vram or is there anything limiting the speed of the ram that the GPU can use ? Hope you can help me out. Thanks for reading all these

I've recently just gone from an MSI 970 Gaming motherboard & FX 8320 cpu to a Rog Strix B550 motherboard & Ryzen 5600X cpu. Been reading up and seems to be pretty split opinions on whether or not I should do a fresh install so old drivers aren't lingering around causing screwups.

Is the old drivers still being around going to cause a problem/drop in performance at all since I've gone from an am3+ chip to an AM4 one? Or will I be fine without doing a fresh windows install?

Unstable system for gaming

Hello looking for a bit of help!

This is my first AMD system, I have always used intel in the past.

New build is:

5950x (360 aio)

Crosshair hero 8 (wifi), I have disables all nics and wifi in the bios and put in x520 10GB sfp+ nic

64GB 3600 cl 18

3090 FE

The system can pass stress tests and complete benchmarks, when I try to game COD cold war online and Mafia 3 the game will only work for a little and crash out with multiple different errors.

The settings that I have changed on the system as a whole are

updated win 10, enabled pbo 2 with the curve and -10 offset for all cores, enabled xmp on the RAM, lowered the overclock on the 3090 to +150,+500. I can pass benchmarks with the card at +210 +800.

I did not have any of these issued on my old system x99 and this gpu.

I do have resize bar turned on in the bios should I turn that off?

Hi there everyone! So im the recent owner of a 6900 XT (xfx merc) and i love the card, it looks great, its quiet and when it works its great. This is my first AMD card since a 7870 back when i first started gaming, in most games the card performs well. I've only had one crash due to a driver timeout, but in BF5 the game after around 40mins will simply crash to a black screen, taking the entire PC with it, as well as taking the display signal from my monitor (38GL950G-B) with it, audio also cuts out completely. So far i cant diagnose the problem at all, only seems to happen in BF5 too, nothing online really points to others having similar crashes to me. I also can't see how it would be a problem with any of my other hardware causing a conflict as i also have a 6800 that runs fine (for the most part, mainly driver timeout) i did notice in this thread that there was a known crash caused when gaming with enhanced sync, but under the general gaming preset that's disabled by default. So far this is a unique problem with BF5, other games such as cyberpunk and league of legends run fine. Just wondering if anyone else could send me some pointers, so far i have done the following:

Driver re-install with DDU System Rebooting Cache clear

Hi everyone. I'd be grateful if someone could help with my AMD Instant Replay issue.

My instant replay is not saving instant footage. It's saving old gameplay. For example, I pressed the hotkey now, and instead of saving the last 3 min of gameplay as it is set to do, it saved 3 mins of footage from some random match from earlier today.

CPU - Ryzen 5 3600x

GPU - Gigabyte Gaming OC 3080

RAM - 16GB DDR4 @3200

Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD

X570 Phantom Gaming 4

After installing the latest Nvidia drivers (461.71) all my games started suffering signifcant FPS drops (144 to 30-40) with major stuttering.

I carried out all the troubleshooting out there, all the way down to a fresh install of Windows on a different SSD. The issue persisted, until I tried on the off chance something I read about disabling CPU0 in the affinity settings of task manager for the games exe file. This solved the problem.

I then ran some benchmarks on Cinebench for my CPU:

Single Core - 1130 Multi Core - 8632

These results are lower than expected. They should be ~1288 and ~9588.

Does this indicate an irreverisble issue with the CPU, or is there some sort of software issue I can try and rectify? I'm close to replacing the CPU as it might be cooked, but wanted to check in with the brains trust before making a purchase.

Summary of Issue

Hi all, hoping to get some help here as I'm not a computer expert (I bought my PC as a pre-built), but I've tried diligently to read through various PC forums to troubleshoot my issue. About once a week, I get a random reboot, or a BSOD (WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR). This has happened on light loads (just a few tabs of Chrome open) or on heavier loads (i.e., gaming + streaming). This can happen on just stock settings, though much less frequently as I've only gotten 1 BSOD in 2 weeks w/ stock settings. When I have XMP/DOCP enabled at 3600mhz or 3200mhz, it happens about once a week. Again, this can either be a BSOD or a random restart.

When I look in the Event Viewer log, the critical error is always a Event ID 41, source: Kernel-Power. Not sure why, but I don't seem to have a minidump folder in C:Windows even though I have the feature enabled.

I've read various threads of other users experiencing similar BSOD/restart issues with the Zen 3 CPU + various ASUS BIOSes, but it seems like their issues are more frequent (i.e., BSOD/random restart multiple times a day or within a few minutes of the computer starting up).

I have no issues with CPU or GPU temps. They are all in-line with expectations when idle and under load.

I'm less concerned about the XMP/DOCP overclock crashes and more concerned that I still get a BSOD/random at stock settings once every ~2 weeks.

System Configuration

GPU: XFX Merc Radeon RX 6800 XTCPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900XMotherboard: ASUS TUF X570-PLUS GAMING (Wi-Fi)BIOS Version: Version 3405 (this is ASUS's latest non-BIOS version)RAM: G.Skill 32GB DDR4 PC4-28800 3600MHz Ripjaws CL16 (2x16GB)PSU: 850 Watts - Corsair RMx Series RM850xOperating System & Version: Windows 10 Home (64-bit Edition)GPU Drivers: 21.2.2Chipset Drivers: AMD Chipset Software

Steps to Reproduce

I'm unable to reproduce the issue since it seems to happen randomly, but in terms of troubleshooting, I have made sure all drivers are up to date (chipset, Windows, BIOS). I have not run stress tests at stock settings, but I get no errors when I run many of the popular RAM stress tests, which makes me think/hope that it's just a BIOS issue:.

DOCP settings:

-Config 1: 3600mhz, FLCK frequency = 1800mhz, C-states disabled (everything else untouched)

-Config 2: 3200mhz, FLCK frequency = 1600mhz, C-states disabled (everything else untouched)

- Karhu RAM test for ~8 hours, no issues for both configs- Memtest86 for ~8 hours, no issues for both configs- OCCT CPU Large Data test with extreme option checked for ~1 hour, no issues for both configs- OCCT Memory test for ~1 hour, no issues for both configs- Prime95 test, large FFTs and small FFTs, a few hours for both configs and no issues- Cinebench23 and 3dmark all run without issues for both configs.

It seems weird to me that my PC can pass all of these stress tests, but still experience BSODs or random restarts about once per week.

I will note that my PC came with BIOS version 2812 (a beta version) installed. Before I updated the AMD chipset drivers and BIOS, I was getting random restarts and BSODs maybe once a day, or once every other day.

Things I have not tried yet:

-I have not tried touching any of the voltages or other settings in BIOS. (Honestly, not too knowledgeable about voltages.)-Swapping in other PC hardware; unfortunately, I don't have other PC parts onhand to swap in and out.

Any suggestions on what else I can try to fix this issue? Any ideas what might be causing my problem? I'm less concerned about the XMP/DOCP overclock crashes and more concerned that I still get a BSOD/random at stock settings once every ~2 weeks. Thank you for reading and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, im having overheating (Reaching 79-84°C degrees) problems with old games like Total war shogun 2 or Total war medieval 2, i cleaned the case and reapply the thermal paste like a month ago so i dont know whats going on, both games are really old to overheat my video card like that.

BTW i ended up deactivating hardware acceletarion on Chrom because for some reason whenever i browsed reddit or do something on youtube the core clock of the card will go up to 1040 MHz heating up the card too (This particular thing started to happen in december)

Have you looked at what the GPU utilization is while playing those games? Are those the same temperatures you get while playing newer games?

I wouldn't be too concerned about those temperatures if the GPU is at full utilization. I think the R9 390 can run fine up to 95C.

Hi! I just built a computer for my first time last night and I got the Ryzen 5 3600 and I'm using the stock cooler. I have no clue what temps are good/bad and on my old prebuilt system with a Ryzen 5 1400, I never checked the temps so I don't have any comparison. As of right now it's idling between 55-60C. I was running the benchmark test on AC Origins and it was averaging between 70-80C. I ran a Cinebench multi-core test and it stayed around 85C for a bit but then started climbing a lot near the end of the test, and it peaked at 92C at the end. I was using HWiNFO to monitor temps, and I have also installed Ryzen Master now to monitor as well.

I read that these temps(aside from the Cinebench one) are normal for a Ryzen 5 3600 with the stock cooler, is this true? Do I run into any harm with these temps? AC Origins is probably the most intensive game I will be playing, I mainly just play League of Legends and other games that aren't hard on the PC. I am planning on streaming League though if that changes much.

Thank you!

It highly depends on the airflow of your case and fan setup on Bios.

I have a 3600x with stock cooler, it was hitting 82°C on warzone, I installed two Corsair ML120 on the case, one on front top, pulling cold air to the heatsink and another on the back, pushing out hot air, and changed fan profile from Silent to Turbo on the Bios (TUF x570), now my temps on warzone average as 70°C with peaks at 75°C

Summary of issue

When I open uncapped games (limit fps sometimes is enough or vsync) the screen started having sweeps (like in the video). I didnt have this problem before with this new monitor or the old one ( I played games uncapped or without vsync and this didn't happen, but now it's impossible).

I changed monitors (from a 720p to a 1080p) and at first I though it was the monitor (which worked fine until this suddenly popped up), but I tested on my old one and still happened, so I'm really lost there.

I also tried different versions of Adrenalin and formatting (twice) but it didn't fix

System Configuration

Motherboard: ASUS Prime B450M-A

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

PSU: Sentey LNZ ZX750-ls 750w

System Memory: 16 GB (2x8 GB Crucial Ballistix)

GPU: RX 570 8 GB

OS: Windows 10 Home x64 (Version : 19042.746)

Steps to reproduce:

Open a game without VSync nor capped 60 fps (even like this, Genshin Impact still makes my screen sweep) , then go to another app (like discord or the game) and the sweep appears until I close said game.

And if I'm in a menu of the game or a loading screen it doesn't happen

Radeon Software Settings:

Long story short my GPU died around a year after I bought it (Sapphire Nitro Vega 64), it went to RMA, got fixed and sent back to me. Now another year later it died again... Is there an RMA limit before another solution can be considered??

I don't want to keep sending this thing back every year to RMA while I stay around a month without a GPU (I work in video and have deadlines). Due to Covid I am pretty sure it will take a lot longer than last time...

Or when this stuff happens it's normal to keep RMA'ing the same product a bunch of times? From a consumer perspective that doesn't sound right.

Hi all,

What's wrong: I just built a PC a few days ago and everything was going great. However, a couple days into use, while just browsing the web, the video cut out and all power to USB ports was lost (can't use mouse/keyboard, flash drives, etc., nor can I see anything on the screen). I have never intensively used the system outside of basic photo editing. The white 'VGA' light is also lit up on my motherboard.

What still works: All components still seem to be receiving power. The motherboards lights are still on, the lights on my RAM sticks are on, the light on my GPU is on, and all case fans light up and spin.

What I've tried with no solution: I have tried several things to troubleshoot:

I changed the order of my RAM, tried booting with just one stick, tried different slots, etc. I swapped out my GPU for my old one I booted without any peripherals connected (no fans, CPU cooler, etc.) I disconnected the PSU and popped the motherboard battery out for about half an hour I checked the CPU for bent pins (they look fine) I tried all connections without cable extensions I changed HDMI cables I paced in circled thinking for a long time

So, I am honestly at a loss. At this point, I assume it has to either be a bad motherboard or processor. Does anyone have any insight? I have very little time or money to invest in all of this and my return period for most of the parts ends in a week.

Thank you for your time. Take care.

Broadly speaking they're pretty similar. The Asus board has a slightly better audio chipset on paper, and is a more premium brand so depending on your taste aesthetically will look a bit nicer.

If I were in your shoes I'd go for the cheaper option unless you've got a glass side panel and feel strongly about the looks.

Summary of Issue: In full screen, my game does this weird color-twitching thing. If I alt-tab or turn my volume up/down on my headphones, it changes the colors of my game and makes it super bright/highly saturated for whatever reason. I’m not 100% sure what causes it.

I’m epileptic, so it basically forces me to play in windowed full screen, which works, but I’d rather play in full screen due to performance. I’ve tried un/reinstalling the software itself, the drivers, etc. everything is up to date.

GPU near idle on Minecraft

Dear AMD, (or anyone who may be able to help me) One of the games I play a decent amount is Minecraft on my PC and while I get good FPS generally, on some servers I get like 60fps which is very low considering it should be able to push out a consistent 150+. When I use MSI Afterburner overlay or the Radeon software, it says my GPU is at like <10% utilization. The highest I’ve seen it go is 27% and it never passes that. I have no clue what could cause it and can’t figure it out and am hoping someone can help me.

Also on a side note, my gpu vram clock is always at 1750mhz (max) at never downclocks even in idle, even when on like 1-2% utilization. I haven’t been able to figure that out either if anyone could help with that.

Tried the reg edit timeout to 8 trick. Literally anything I can find and still happening. This is actually my second card, I rma'd the first due to this in case it was a hardware issue, but it's not. Same deal, new card. I'm assuming it's a driver issue as it seems to extend across multiple generations (based on Google results), and from what I can tell is a fairly recent problem.

Is it even possible to decrease the amount of auto-boost (not PBO) without completely disabling it?

I can't find anything like this in bios.

Motherboard: Asrock B550 Pro 4

CPU: 3300X (Don't think anything else is important.)

I changed CPU-cooler to a better and I know that the auto-boost depends on temps.

Before boost was 4100 MHz / 1.3V average voltage on 100% all cores / 33 W.

After boost became 4200 MHZ / 1.37 average voltage on 100% all cores / 39 W (+18%).

And the real performance only increased by... 1.5%.

I'm using my CPU on 100% load almost 24/7 so I want it to be cooler / quieter / more energy effective.

+18% of energy doesn't worth these +1.5% of speed up.

I also tried undervolting (negative offset) - doesn't change much of energy consumption but high values greatly decrease performance (-10% while still eating more energy than before and staying as 4200 MHz).

399 : Anonymous2021/02/06 17:18 ID: gm8xj0h

Just disable PBO entirely, all it really does is raise the power limits (PPT, TDC, EDC) from the AMD defaults to whatever the motherboard's voltage regulator supports and doesn't have much of a real impact on Zen2. PBO didn't get really good until PBO2 with Zen3 processors because of Curve Optimiser.

Disabling Overdrive in BIOS automatically forces Precision Boost 2.0 into action, which only follows the default power limits set by AMD and as a result doesn't rely on those power limits for boosting. In some cases with PBO on Zen2 it can actually be worse than normal PB 2.0 because of how it's designed to run. My 3900X runs hotter and boosts worse on PBO than it does on PB 2.0.

My 6800 XT nitro + SE is underperforming

I had just upgraded from a 5700 xt to a 6800 xt and expected a massive performance upgrade based on all the benchmarks I saw, but I am just really disappointed and have no clue why it feels like such a minimal upgrade. I used to get around 100-120 FPS on Warzone with my old graphics card and I am only getting around 130-140 now and sometimes it dips to 120 range no matter how I change my in game settings. The same is similar with other games like Apex legends, GTA, cyberpunk. I already followed a settings and safe overclocking and undervolting guide and I updated my drivers and even tried using game post and A-XMP through the bios, I just don’t understand why everyone else is getting 200+ frames on 1080p low-high and I can’t. I wonder if my card is faulty or what but these are my specs. If anyone has any idea what I should do or try that would be helpful, I spent a lot for this upgrade and I’m just overall disappointed with performance and not sure if this is how it’s supposed to be.

It's probably a cpu bottleneck. Try playing with higher graphics settings like medium/high, if it's a gpu bottleneck your fps should decrease, if it's a cpu bottleneck they should stay similar. Check your gpu usage, usually the gpu at 100% means there is a gpu bottleneck while cpu is not that telling. For example if a game uses only 4 out of 8 cores the cpu will show less than 100% usage but may still be bottlenecking the system because of lower single core performance. I watched couple of videos on youtube and even with a 3700x/3080 i saw there are people that do around 150fps.

Pc parts are - •2600x - avg 40ish ⁰c •Mech oc 5700xt - avg 85ish ⁰c •16gb vengeance 3200mhz •450w psu

I'm playing in 4k High settings and I pull around 50-60ish fps and temps seem fine from what I've read online especially with the gpu. Mid game the whole pc just turns off as though its either over heated or psu has died. Could this be a psu issue or temp issue?

410 : Anonymous2021/02/11 13:07 ID: gmxme7p

Seems like a PSU issue, you are quite near 100% load on the theoretical TDP. Is any of your stuff OC'ed?

Maybe both temperature and power are related problems in your system, since as temperature rises the efficiency lowers since more Wattage is necessary to keep the system running.

You could try undervolting your 5700 XT to lower its power draw and temps and see if it helps with the problem

411 : Anonymous2021/02/11 16:48 ID: gmyemct

Your total system power draw is too close to the limit so the PSU can't handle it, it's shutting off as a result.

For a system with a 5700-XT, AMD recommends at least a 600W PSU.

Hello fellas,

Yesterday i got my new build parts which;

MSI X570 Gaming Plus MB


KINGSTON HYPER 3600hz 32gig dual kit RAM

So, its been years i havent build new pc, i wanted to keep it budget so i needed to use some of my components which was in my old case such as

FSP Hyper 700w 85+ PSU

GTX 960 2gig

Samsung Evo 860 240gb SSD

So I combined them all with stock CPU cooler, everything went fine i did cable management on back side which i am proud of 😀

But on boot every ez debug leds turning red first one by one then they all goes off only VGA light back, so I am gettnig no display i thought it might be problem from my old GPU i tried it on other computer it worked fine, I called friend to help he bring GTX 1650, we put that GPU on case this time it succeseed debug part and i got display, everything went fine, I unscrewed gtx 1650 then put my old one back and yeah it turned on, i checked everything according DXDIAG everything was fine, then I restarted pc, vga light on mb went on again and no display:( What can cause that and what are your opinions anything will be welcomed, Thank u so much

It may be memory settings issue. Try resetting the bios and then set ram to xmp profile 1

Black Screen Timeouts on latest two optional drivers the latest recommended one works fine but i need optional one to use yuzu(switch emulator) and the black screens also happened when i tried to watch videos with the windows 10 video player there it would always cause black screen and the video player would freeze
Mainboard: x570 Gaming Edge WIFI has the second or third latest bios update
GPU: rx580 8GB
CPU: ryzen 7 3700x
If more information is needed please write a comment and i also sent a report on the optional driver before the latest one but i guess it got ignored

So i have been having a lot of issus lately. I have been getting a bunch of different BSoD errors. These include: Kernel_check_security_failure, System_service_exception, System_Thread_exception_not_handled, Unexpected_kernel_mode_trap and Irql_not_less_or_equal. Lately they have been happening more, around 5-8 times a day. They happen in games, while browsing og just when the computer just sits idling on the home screen.

Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro / Asus Primes b450m-k CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (no overclock) PSU: Corsair tx650m RAM: corsair vengeance 2x8gb 3200 mhz GPU: AMD 5700XT reference Storage: Intel 660p 1tb OS: windows 10 x64

List of things i have done to locate the issue

Ran two different memory tests (windows own and memtest86) Switched the ram around to different slots Ran intels ssd checker, came up clean. Did a clean boot of windows Changed my aorus Mobo with the Asus one Reinstalled drivers, cleaned the computer physically, ran CCleaner, ran anti-virus software.

As you can see i have tried a lot of different things and nothing has helped so far. Could it be my CPU? Or am i missing something? My sincerest thanks for any input you could have.

When u say clean install did you format first?

I wouldnswap videocard with a green one, if that doesn't work I would swap the ram, if that doesn't work then maybe consider cpu rma.

423 : Anonymous2021/02/21 20:20 ID: go9gtv4

Did you try using a program like BlueScreenView to see what driver is crashing? I've had issues like this before and that program let me know it was the video driver. If it doesn't implicate any particular driver then it could be anything, I would guess some RAM or MB issue. Note that memtest doesn't always catch issues with RAM. So it might be worth trying some other stick if you have access to any extra ones. Or try running with each stick by themselves in different slots if you haven't done that yet.

Im runnin a AMD Ryzen 7 3700x with a Rog Croshair VIII hero and getting a core voltage of 1.376 on CPU Z and was wondering if this is normal or not? I've seen some posts say that it shouldnt go past a certain voltage.

425 : Anonymous2021/02/21 14:46 ID: go8aeql

If the CPU is running at stock settings, it's fine. Stock voltage range is safe because the FIT will not allow higher voltages based on current. The less current the CPU is getting, the more voltage it can use. This is why the CPU will boost highest in light loads, not as much in games, and lowest in heavier all-core loads.

That voltage would only be lethal to the silicon over time with a manual OC.

Hi! I get BSODs on average maybe once a week. I think it's either the BIOS or the RAM. Is there any way to test whether its a RAM issue other than memtest86? I've been able to run memtest86 for a full 4x passes with XMP/DCOP turned on without any issue, but I think I've heard that memtest86 isn't fully reliable. I've also used the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and did not see any errors/issues there either.

My Ryzen 3600 started running at an extremely high temp even after a fresh restart, and with only Google Chrome running, around 75-80°C. Only have a minor overclock on it, CPU Clock Speed maximum is 4,125 MHz and CPU Voltage is 1.25V.

I've tried chkdsk, sfc /scannow, mem check all the things suggested but nothing is working so far.

Does anyone else have this problem or has any suggestions on what I should try next?

430 : Anonymous2021/02/26 08:52 ID: got7b23

I don't recommend manually overclocking unless you're certain that 1.25v is actually safe according to the chip's FIT.

In Prime95, voltages can go as low as 1.1 or even lower if the lottery bin is bad enough. In similarly heavy loads, 1.25v could degrade the chip in that case.

If temperatures increase over time with a long-term OC, it can be an indicator that the silicon has been degraded by the overclock. But it could also be changes to the fan curve you weren't aware of, a dead fan, etc.

I have a ZFS pool on a 4x 8TB UAS DAS (FANTEC qb-35u31, or Icy Box IB-3740-C31) connected over USB 3.1 Gen 2.

On two Intel machines, there is no problem. I can transfer Terabytes. On an AMD X570 mainboard (Gigabyte Aorus X570 I PRO WIFI), ZFS reports many write and checksum errors.

This only happens with this X570 mainboard. I have tested different cables. I have used both the USB type C port and the USB 3.1 port on the back. I have tried flashing the latest bios for this mainboard (33c). The problem remains. Note that the hardware does not disconnect as others on Reddit describe: I do not hear or notice a disconnection. But the issues might be related nontheless.

Does anyone else observe this?

Hi everyone, I have a technical question regarding audio in Radeon Instant Replay - My GPU is GTX Sapphire 580 4tb (but I dont think this is card related)

I am using a Jabra microphone (plugged in via USB call managing switch - or whatever you call it) I enabled the Instant Replay settings and let the software record microphone too, but when I enabled it the output quality went down massively (live output not recorded) - how to keep it enabled and have normal audio quality? I tried switching PUSH TO TALK on and turning microphone off at the switch thingy but the quality still remains broken. Another thing is that it plays the input back to me so I can hear myself - which I think is the reason the audio changes. Is there an option to turn listening off? (It's off in Windows audio settings btw).

Thank you in advance!

434 : Anonymous2021/03/01 14:11 ID: gpatcg1

Didn't find the right solution but just to update - CTRL+SHIFT+M disables and enables the microphone so you can turn it on and off for when you record - which still affects your live output quality - not sure about recorded yet.

Hello all,

Monitor Issue

I have a Radeon RX480 in my PC. Since I started using my Dell gaming monitor, it has every so often been going blank randomly, which is followed by the error message “unsupported audio format, set to pulse code modulation if possible”. I read up and saw this is caused due to a few things: my monitor has no audio output, but the HDMI output from my video card also carries audio output, which messes with the monitor. In all my googling I have only found fixes for NVIDIA cards and not a single one that would work for me. Does anyone have any clue how to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

Is there a way to limit max frequency/max voltage while still allowing PBO to run in ryzen 5900x?

I am looking to reduce the max temps (also looking at idle temps when AGESA, PBO2 and Offset Voltage come to my motherboard later) which sometimes spike to 85C+ under load. I know it is not a problem, but I would prefer to keep it under 80C. Is there a way to thermal throttle at 80C, cap the max frequency or the max voltage while still allowing PBO to run in ryzen 5900x? I have tried to reduce Max CPU State in Windows Power Plan to 99%, and it plain out disables boosts and stays at base frequency.

444 : Anonymous2021/01/18 05:16 ID: gjox4de

So PBO doesnt effect anything when i change it in bios, but when i change it in ryzen master it gets my temps down and works like it probably should be working. i mean thats kinda annoying, since i dont want to open ryzen master everytime i turn on my pc. my temps get to 90c while gaming and recording. i know thats fine for a 5900x but PBO can get lower temps. just wondering if anyone has pbo on in the bios and how i would also get it working.

445 : Anonymous2021/01/18 05:23 ID: gjoxnzo

PBO doesn't lower temps... if anything it increases temps because it allows the CPU to boost highe


If temps are a concern, a better cooler will help, or a manual OC using safe voltage (i.e. 1.250v)

No. The 3600 has no iGPU and there is none in the board itself, you need an APU (2200G/3200G or 2400G/3400G) installed to get a display without a GPU.

451 : Anonymous2021/01/23 19:59 ID: gkfpjwg

It's normal because of how Ryzen operates.

In lighter loads, the CPU is allowed to boost higher than at higher loads because there's less current (TDC, EDC) to the CPU, resulting in higher temperatures overall in idle and light load states.

It is, however, perfectly safe. The chip is protected by the Silicon Fitness, or FIT, which throttles boosting to protect the CPU based on how much current is going to the CPU, in order to prevent the silicon from damaging itself.

Ryzen 5000 in particular has been pushed higher in the factory by AMD, so it's normal for them to run pretty damn hot in comparison to Ryzen 3000 and earlier. I'm assuming you're running a 5600X based on the default power limits and core count since it appears to be a 65W CPU but there's no 65W 6 core Ryzen part out other than the 5600X that just reaches those clocks at idle like that.

Summary of Issue

I own a ASUS AREZ STRIX RX VEGA 56 O8G @ Windows 10pro 64 (20h2) and I just updated from the last beta driver to 21.1.1 well I was never happy with any driver since I own the card. Because if I touch any of the Tuning options it will cause massive stability problems so i gave up on it, even if I made the slightest adjustments the card starts to have strange behaviour. Sometimes If I close or start an application the Fans go full speed for no reason. Or my application Tuning settings overwrite the global settings after I close the application. Well long story short 21.1.1 is the worst driver I ever experienced It keeps crashing idk why maybe its because I have SAM enabled on my X570/3600x/VEGA56

Hey everyone.

I don't know if this issue is related but I've seen plenty of people saying there are issues with X570 boards and series 5000 processors (and some series 3000). Some are getting random reboots and others are getting tons of WHEA errors and those would happen at any moment! In my case I'm getting random "freezes" while watching videos, when closing a game (low consumption) and sometimes while playing games. Most of the computer is responding well and most of the times I can run Cinabench R23 or something else that requires more power without problems for a lot of time. So I want to know, perhaps these issues are related to the BIOS and what other issues are facing?

This is my system:

Ryzen 5 5600X
ASUS TUF x570-PRO (WiFi)
32GB DDR4 CL16 (Crucial Ballistix)
1TB m.2 NVME Sabrent 4.0 TLC
nVidia 1060 6GB (Gigabyte G1)

These errors are quite uncommon but they are quite frustrating when they happen.

For example:

On BIOS 3001 the freezes were something like "screen and keyboard LEDs shut down while the ones in the case kept working" and I'm being unable do anything so I'm forced to restart (nothing shows in event viewer).On BIOS 3401 the freezes are now actual freezes, the screen doesn't shut down and all LEDs are kept on, but the ones on the case are not frozen as well. I'm also forced to reboot and when I check the Windows Event Viewer nothing shows.

I was also having some issues with some rubberbanding on some apps (CPU-Z) so to see if that could get that fixed I reinstalled Windows, but after a while it came back but now it's more manageable and so far the computer has not crashed but it has only been 1 day.

So yeah, my main question is: I'm getting the same error everyone is getting and perhaps newest version of AMD's AGESA might fix this? Or should I proactively ask for a refund on my motherboard IF I crash again? Or processor?

Any kind of help would help greatly. This issue has given me tons of headaches lately...

Thanks! 🙂

Help me please. I am trying to check is my PC ready for OC, so i returned everything to stock settings, only maxxed out fans. So i started testing GPU in OCCT 3D test with shader complexity at level 3. After about 1 minut of testing HWINFO shows there are thermal HTC throttling and PROCHOT throttling, but all the temps are fine. Reapplied thermal paste, checked pressure, still throttling. I even downclocked cpu to 3ghz and undervolted it to 1.2v, fixed VSOC at 1.1v. Doesnt help. How is it possible? I thought this APU is very cold. Also i build this PC not for myself so it needs to be stable under any possible load.Specs:ryzen 3400g (20.11.2 GPU driver)pccooler gi-x5b v2gigabyte b450m s2h v2 (with latest F60f bios AGESA ComboV2 D, chipset driver)aerocool qs-240 (2x 120mm at front, 1 120mm at back) all fans maxxed out

You want it stable but also want OC? Oxymoron.

Summary of Issue

The best of my new MSI 6800xt can do is displaying the login screen of win 10, then it just shuts down and forces the system to reboot when the red light on the mobo is on.

Tested on two mobos, same issue.

Updated to the latest BIOS.

The system runs perfectly with my old 5700XT, but not with this new 6800XT.

System Configuration

Motherboard: MSI X570 Edge Wifi CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3700 PSU: Corsair RM650 (two 6+2 connectors to the two 8 pin ports) Display(s) (Make, Model and Type): LG 27UK850-W DP (4K 60Hz) System Memory: 16GB Dual Channel 3600MHz GPU (VBIOS): MSI GAMING X TRIO RX 6800XT 16GB (VBIOS: unknown) OS (Version): Windows 10 x64 (Version: 19041.746) Driver: Applications: Cannot even login Win 10 Background Apps: None Radeon Software Settings: Instant Replay OFF, Anti-Lag OFF, Radeon Image Sharpening OFF, Enhance Sync OFF

Steps to Reproduce

Boot my PC. Move my mouse in the Window login screen.

I would suggest upgrading your PSU, you're meeting the minimum requirements for the RX 6800 XT which is 750W for MBA (

please check OEM (MSI) what is the PSU requirements

FYI not all PSUs are all made equally, some have varying performance characteristics: efficiency, continuous power versus peak power capabilities.

These are critical factors when running graphically demanding games or overclocking your GPU.

I would also suggest to use se 2 separate PCI-E cables in each slot from PSU to GPU (Example:

Low FPS in Minecraft

System specs:

Ryzen 2400G RX580 8GB 16GB RAM @ 3200Mhz 165Hz monitor

Surely I should be able to run Minecraft at 100+fps no problem, right? It's just a Java game. I can run other, more intensive games at high fps no problem.

But in Minecraft, without shaders I'm getting a max of like 45-60fps, and with shaders I'm getting like 20-30fps.

Is there anything I can do to get better fps? It's weird that it's this low on a Java game...

I've tried playing around with different OptiFine settings but nothing seems to make any difference. Also tried switching between Windowed and Fullscreen, toggling VSync, nothing seems to make any difference.

Tried this guy's fix as well as set Render Distance to 8 chunks instead of 16, and now without shaders I'm getting anywhere between 60-90fps so its an improvement but not as much as I was hoping.

Still getting 30fps max with shaders though 🙁

Based on what I've been Googling, this seems to be a problem specific to AMD, lots of people complaining. Does anyone know of a fix or are we just screwed until AMD decides to fix it? Adrenalin doesn't recognize Minecraft or Java as games so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it. Manually adding MinecraftLauncher.exe and javaw.exe as games didn't have any effect.

474 : Anonymous2021/02/06 15:06 ID: gm8iev3

You could play on linux and get good fps... On windows you have no hope left, there will be no fine wine for opengl.

475 : Anonymous2021/02/07 11:22 ID: gmeo96u

I used to have problem with minecraft because of fullscreen. Try disabling fullscreen in settings and play in windowed mode. After messing around with fullscreen and resolution settings for a bit my fps went from a weird 29 fixed 100+. Maybe it's not the solution but worth giving a try.

Hello there. I bought A Asrock b450 Steel legend a Ryzen 7 2700x and 16gb (2x8) Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200MHz, during the Black Friday but in the last 2 month (almost after I bought it) it stared giving me problems while gaming. At first it was only with warzone and maybe 1/2 game, but now it starts crashing with literally every game after 20/40 minutes of gameplay. The graphics card is fine since I had it for the past year almost and with the old system it wasn’t giving me any problem. The motherboard is running the 3.20 Bios that asrock doesn’t recommend using it with this CPU but it came from the factory like this. The ram are on XMP at 3200MHz. The cooler is the stock rgb one.

How can you know the graphics card is fine?

So I managed to buy Ryzen 5600X CPU, but I'm currently running on an Intel i7 5820k. I plan to replace my old motherboard with a MSI MPG B550, but I've never done a BIOS update using USB. How should I do it?

Or would I need another, older CPU just to boot it?

482 : Anonymous2021/02/13 06:25 ID: gn5bz89

Many motherboards being shipped now come with Ryzen 5000 compatible BIOS, you may not need to.

If you do and you don't have an older Ryzen processor to use until you install the latest BIOS, then the board needs to support BIOS flashback to update BIOS without a compatible CPU installed

I have an Acer aspire with the following specs

300 w power -i3 10100 4 core -intel uhd 630 -8 GB ram DDR4 2666MHz (soon to be 16 gb) -512GB NVMe M.2 SSD

I want to upgrade the graphics card to something better with a hopefully simple install. Possibly a 1050ti 4gb. My question is if this will work without major changes or if there are better option without changing my power supply. I am new to this so I feel slightly out of my comfort zone.

485 : Anonymous2021/02/17 09:08 ID: gnqy13g

A 75W GPU like the 1050 Ti or 1650 (non-SUPER) should be fine for that PSU since they only draw the 75W allotted from the motherboard's PCI-e X16 slot.

I'm currently looking for a software to monitor my CPU temperatures. Do you know if Ryzen Master works on laptops? I couldn't find any info on the web. If not, what other softwares would you recommend? I don't intend to overclock it nor do any other thing but monitor temperatures. I have Ryzen 7 4700u Thank you guys!

Yeah it's normal, each CCX has cores of varying quality, and Ryzen 9 has two separate active chiplets entirely and one of them is usually binned a bit lower than the other.

I don't know the variance between the two CCDs on the 5900X, but my 3900X has at least a 150~200 MHz difference between the first and second CCD and that is true for the majority of 3900X samples. CCD1 can run ~4.6 GHz on a single core and 4.3 all-core (just those 6 cores) while CCD2 requires much more voltage to get the same all-core frequency (which isn't sustainable in high current loads and would damage the chip in P95) and the relative all-core frequency is 4.15 at best at a safe voltage (which would be around 1.25v at the most, 7nm is very sensitive which is why the FIT will only allow voltages that are safe when Precision Boost is active.)

Be extremely careful when tweaking the CPU because when you stop the chip from running how it's supposed to run out of the box, the FIT stops working as well, which means your chip will no longer be prevented from damaging or even killing itself over time with fatal voltage. Voltages are allowed based on the current flow (amps) to the CPU, with higher current resulting in a lower voltage limit. At full current (i.e. 99% TDC and/or EDC) you'll see the general idea of what your "FIT voltage" is, the relative maximum voltage that is safe for your CPU (that your motherboard VRM can also handle)

If you're going to undervolt, keep it to as close to 1.1v as possible without destroying performance. Really though, if your cooler's up to the job, just let it run how it's supposed to out of the box. AMD's recommendation for 3000 and 5000 series for voltage is stock voltage. Let the chip handle itself, it's engineered to do it's job without killing itself.

Summary of issue Basically been running into memory management BSOD. after running a few memtest86 and telling things in BIOS I figured that everything runs fine if I set it all to auto. But turning in DOCP makes the thing fail. Dug into it and I think my CPU maxes to 3200 but can't figure out how to get it to work. Not sure if that's normal, but if anyone could help me set it up properly that would rock.

Most systems tend to struggle with 3600 CL16 XMP/DOCP.

That RAM might be dual ranked Hynix D-die which is pretty rough on Ryzen's IMC, people with the same RAM have reported being unable to go anywhere near 3600 CL16 on that kit with Ryzen, with 3200 requiring closer to 1.4v DRAM frequency and tweaked ProcODT and CAD Bus. It's important to make sure that when buying higher clocked kits that it's Samsung b-die and nothing else, because it's the easiest to work with.

I recommend trying 1usmus' old calculator for Ryzen:

to find values to play around with. Don't bother with DOCP/XMP, it's not going to run stable at all it seems. Run it manually.

Use Thaipoon Burner's read function to find the specs you need to enter into the calculator:

because if anything is wrong (rank, type, PCB revision, etc.) are wrong then you will not get a relatively accurate result.

Chances are you won't get 3600 CL16 to work at all on your system if it is Hynix DJR dual rank RAM, but if you do then you got lucky.

ASUS ROG DELTA, keeps disconnecting and reconnecting.

So i had this headset for almost 2 years now. Nothing was wrong with it all ,now recently out of nowhere they started disconnecting and reconnect as soon as i move around or anything. If i stay still standing its somewhat fine but it gets real annoying after you move a bit and it keeps happening all over. I tried to fix the problem with several attempts by turning off the power saving options in device manager or even in the energy saving tab in general. I tried to restore my pc a few times, it kept happening. I tried to update all the drivers for my headset including the armoury software. I really dont know what might be the problem . Maybe the cable of the headset gave up? because recently it did shock me for some reason , i had to put duct tape around that area. I also heard powered usb hub might help this situation ? but i'm not sure. I have a ryzen 5 3600x with a motherboard: MSI gaming plus max. If theres any more information that is needed let me know, i tried to explain it my best.

I was trying to record my game to upload it in YouTube, I am having LG N950-B 4K/ 160 GHz (10-Bit) and GPU 6900xt, the issues is when I try to record the game with 10 Bit its showing green video when I disable it its recording normally, ( I figured it out when I was disable every option and recording again and again) the questions is, is there any way to fix it and record the video in 10 Bit or i show just disable it every time when i want to record a video.

Issue: Games run great and everything, however when it comes to any kind of streaming the game begins to stutter, but not lose frames (I'm also very confused about this).

For example, today when playing Valorant, I went to stream it on Twitch using StreamElements, and my game began to feel very choppy. The ingame FPS counter would fluctuate between 180 through 280 FPS, but the game still felt insanely choppy. As soon as I stopped streaming, the issue disappeared. I've only been using CPU encoding.

The same issue would occur when I attempt to use Virtual Desktop to wirelessly stream VR to my Oculus Quest 2 headset. When using the headset, Half-Life: Alyx felt very choppy, as if my computer could barely run the game.

These issues occurred after I installed a new GigaByte Aorus RX 6800 XT to replace my XFX RX 580. Before, I used to be able to stream perfectly fine on both Twitch and Virtual Desktop, but ever since I've installed the new GPU I've been having these issues.


Motherboard: ASRock B550m Pro4 (BIOS 1.70) CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x GPU: GigaByte Aorus RX 6800 XT RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200MHz PSU: Corsair RM750x
500 : Anonymous2021/01/25 18:57 ID: gkqkkkt

please provide more troubleshooting info. for example, what applications need to be open (even in background) for the issue to appear? what other games are you seeing this in and what API are they using? what happens if you use GPU encoding? do you need to be actively streaming for this to occur, or just have the program open? have you checked other streaming software?

Summary of Issue

PC will not boot with D.O.C.P enabled. The kit is a 2x16GB 3200MHz C16 ( CMW32GX4M2C3200C16). It worked with default DOCP on my 3700X, and my 5800X, but the 5900X I just got back from AMD RMA department will not boot windows. It does not blue screen, simply reboots during the very beginning of the Win 10 boot animation.

System Configuration

Motherboard: ASUS B450-I Strix on bios 4204 (latest) CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X PSU: Corsair SF750W 80+ Platinum System Memory: 2x16GB Corsair Vengance C16 CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 GPU (VBIOS): EVGA 3080 XC3 Ultra OS (Version): Windows 10 x64 20H2 (Version: 19042.844) Driver: Nvidia 461.40

Steps to Reproduce

Reset bios to optimized defaults Set D.O.C.P to enabled Boot windows Observe a lockup, then a reboot, then a lockup, then a reboot. Fails to boot during the 'Prepairing to repair' screen. Everything works with D.O.C.P disabled.
