Comment reply on Forum Topic "Urgent GPU and PSU problem"

  • 3 hours ago

i have 16 slots but my psu only came with a connection with one 8 slot (a 4x4) for my gpu.

4x4 is for the CPU not the graphics card.

That will be hard wired on that model.

You should have two seperate 6+2 pin cables which are for the graphics card that need to be plugged in to the correct spots.

Off the top of my head I can't remember if they use a single plug or not but the power supply is labeled for PCIe cables.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Two or four sticks of RAM?"

I'm thinking of going for Zen 3, and I've always heard two was good, but having four sticks wouldn't matter that much in performance

Not totally true, it depends on configuration.

Two single ranked DIMMs always get beat by having four ranks.

So say 16gb having 4x4gb is actually better performance then 2x8gb since almost all 8gb DIMMs are single ranked.

If your looking at 32gb where everything will be dual ranked whether 2x16gb or 4x8gb then it doesn't matter really.

Would you have believed that you could increase your frame rates by up to 10% in Ashes simply by using four ranks of memory? Or that you could reduce file compression time by up to 13%? Isn’t that performance gain similar to upgrading to the next level of graphics card or CPU? Given that 8GB per-rank capacity fills the enthusiast market, isn’t this a good enough reason for us to recommend 32GB to gamers, even to those who will never need more than half of its total capacity?

When memory matters you want ranks with Ryzen.

I believe that the portion of the population claiming things like modern "white privilege" as being prevalent is, intern, a form of racist rhetoric.

More classist then racist.

More income, better standard of living, so more privileged.

No matter what race you are that applies though.

The issue is the disparity of income between races in most areas of the country.

And the few areas where there isn't a large disparity, everybody is well below the poverty line.

If your using a graphics card then the 9100F, 1600 "AF", 3100, 3300X if available are better options then the 3200G.

Depending on the prices and if you can find one the 10100F or 10100 can be tossed into that mix as well.

3200G is a tragically cut down version of Ryzen that's only strength is integrated graphics.

Motherboards don't do repetitive crashing and restarting is the thing.

If you have something shorting out it burns out pretty quick from the power levels involved and the motherboard is dead.

Your more likely to see something like a faulty case I/O board or wiring causing the issues then the motherboard.

it turns out the b450 Tomahawk Max mobo itself was causing my seemingly random restarts. Talk about a major headache to figure out.

Unlikely to be the motherboard.

B450 is pretty stable outside a very rare chipset issue that caused Windows installation issues.

Those are not the only options, to say so is stupid.

Loss of employment is already a given.

Financial options don't work since they lost employment and can't pay.

Prison time only ends one of two ways.

So much spin you should be a top.

Grew up in a city that replaced the police force three times over for corruption.

Teaches you to pay attention to the cops and which are good and bad.

This conversation is over.

You started it your right to end it.

This is a stupid as hell statement.

If the current options are solitary or death, the only way to make that worse is only death.

If you don't want to face that simple fact admit it but don't call others stupid for acknowledging it.

which for some offense that don't result in death is punishment enough, you will still have people wanting to do the job.

Your only available punishment left is a death penalty.

Nobody is going to want the job when the oversight ignores all laws in place handing out death sentences as they please.

That is because everyone is paying attention again. Will they continue to work, no, based on past experiences.

Although You don't pay attention, doesn't mean everyone isn't paying attention. Especially those in areas dealing with the problem.

It means You don't care when it doesn't effect You.

That makes You part of the problem.

You can

How?

Only way to make that stricter is to make all offences punishable by death.

Your solution at that point ends with no police, no enforcement of laws, and everything worse then it is now.

And you'll have all the same people causing issues with nobody to stop them.

In the past officers were almost never charged with anything, even after an investigation. Now charges come pretty quick for egregious complaints.

So the existing fixes are already working even though you have stated multiple times they are not now?

Stiffer penalty?

Their everyday job is putting their life on the line for mediocre pay.

They go to jail under the current laws it's solitary confinement or death sentence.

Can't make that stiffer.

Mediocre pay as it is so paying heftier fines when they already lost the ability to pay it being out of a job only leaves taxpayers picking up the tab.

Really failed thinking that through.

That leaves you strait to the death penalty as your only option.

Ever consider nobody has to be police?

You can only push the penalties so far and then you suddenly have zero law enforcement in the country.

And then you have a worse problem because those same people who used to hide behind a badge have nobody to stop them.

Laws have failed, adding new when the old has already failed doesn't work, as proven time and time again.

Adding higher fines when people wouldn't be able to pay does nothing.

Prison is a death sentence.

Death sentence only makes you one of them hiding behind the law.

Problem is still the people.

Until the people problem is fixed your option is doomed to fail as have all the others before it because it is the same as all the others before it.

So what to make people abide by your laws you would make the threat something they can't ignore?

Stop and think you just made the perfect argument why your example wouldn't work.

I will give you a real life example. In Florida installing septic system without a license or pulling a permit can carry a penalty of $500. This has failed to stop illegal installation by people because even if caught someone can make well over that $500 per installation. So, it has become a part of the statute that really gets ignored because the time and effort are not worth it.

You already know laws don't stop people.

What are you going to do threaten them all with death penalties.

Laws don't change people already ignoring it they simply make them look for a way around the law.

You have to change the people already ignoring the law. And they don't listen to the laws already so adding more isn't going to change that.

Police chief can fire police officers.

Local municipalities can fire police officers.

County elected sheriffs can fire police officers.

State Police and Governor can as well.

All of those are currently in oversight over police officers.

3300X is far from overhyped falling only slightly behind a 3600 for gaming purposes thanks to it's far better CCD and prioritization design.

It's massively under supplied so very high in price when you can find it.

But that's about all that makes it questionable.

9600K is another where pricing is about all that makes it bad.

I'd suggest seeing what you can put together within your budget and look at benchmarks in your uses to see what gets you the best performance.

Major problems now are nothing is really widely available so you have to work with what you can actually get.

If I remember that board correctly the two pins you need to short is bottom middle of the board.

Take a screwdriver or something metal and connect them both briefly.

Make sure your drives are not installed when you do it.

Giving the laws put into place do the exact same thing you are trying to do your options is just as bad as they are.

Your arguing the same exact laws would have a different effect then countless others before them simply because you think they are bad and people ignored them.

The same people ignoring the old would ignore the new.

Still doing the exact same thing and expecting a different result.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "George Floyd protests"

A new law can. Doesn't mean they Do override or change existing laws.

That precedent has been set far too many times.

And you would still be overriding the already in place oversight at Local, State, and Federal level to implement More Police without oversight and requiring them to ignore the already in place laws, oversight, and reporting of abuse.

If you require them to adhere to already in place laws all you have done is replace lawfully elected officials at the Local, State, and Federal levels with unelected policing force doing the exact same.

Which is mildly hilarious giving your stance on voters, since you would be creating one of the very reasons people believe a vote doesn't matter.

Haven't run that one. But AMD uses up all overclocking headroom with stock boost profiles on everything.

Undervolting depends heavily on if the GPU core needs the stock voltage levels or not but always limits performance so unless you need it best to avoid it.

Fan profiles are much the same if you don't need the card cooler or quieter then leave them be.

Give it plenty of airflow and keep your drivers up to date.

Overclocking is so locked down by AMD it isn't worth it unless your going the route of custom BIOS and hard modding the card to allow higher power draw.

It isn't directly comparable since they don't run the games the same way, don't use the same optimization, and don't require the same broad compatibility.

You could say the One X is comparable to a Dual AM1 CPU system with a RX 570, but it would be lying since you can't run the same graphics and resolution levels on the PC since it uses entirety different software system.

So it's apples and pineapples, just because they both have apple in the name doesn't mean they are anything alike.

Laws work when people want to follow them.

U.S. has had decades of new oversight laws after new oversight laws over and over for police.

And all the while they have been militarizing them more and more to deal with the blowback when someone gets caught working outside that oversight.

Until you fix the people problem with police not abiding the current laws all your going to end up with is the same police not listening to even more laws.

There is already laws in place covering these issues, there is already clearly defined ways to report abuse, there is already local, state, and federal oversight.

What there isn't is people caring enough until suddenly it's in their own backyard.

If they are ignoring elected officials and laws put in at the local, state, and federal levels already the only way for your proposal to work is to hand over all forms of power to this new policing group voiding every current form of government creating the very thing you don't want.

The only way to change this isn't more laws or more police.

You have to fix the ignoring first which laws have already shown for decades isn't the way.

The reason is that standards can be written into federal laws, but allowing the states and local communities the chance to put those standards in place in a way that works for them.

That is already how the laws work. And are ignored.

What your proposing is no different.

It's the same as your view on voters needing to change without addressing the issue slapping another Band-Aid fix on it like they have been doing for decades will have no effect.
