Could this issue be fixed with a sound card perhaps? I feel like an external amp/dac will be no good since it will have to plug into the audio jacks on my MOBO anyways, unless im wrong there and it filters out the static or something.

I've tried this. I don't feel like it's got anything to do with drivers since I've swapped to 3 different audio outputs and all 7 different jacks however they all produce the same static even though there may be no audio output from the jack or audio output driver.

I've just checked the port, no visible dust I gave it a blow and wiped off the audio jack. Changed all audio settings to default but there is still the static. I also just updated my BIOS since I saw that it may help but that too didn't work

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Gtx and Rtx all around but what about the Rx Vega?"

While that's a good airflow case, it really shines when it has added fans to the already included. Although its still good at stock. As for the gpu in that case with a stock cooler should be fine. It will keep the gpu in safe temperature limits but it'll end up ramping the gpu fan up a lot making it pretty noisy. If noise isn't a problem then the stock cooler would be fine. If however you want a quieter gpu with slightly higher clocks then I would recommend an aftermarket cooler.

I personally use an RX Vega 64 which is slightly slower than the RTX 2070 however it is also around £50+ cheaper. I love this card and am happy with my investment. The big downsides with Vega cards is that they draw more power than the nVidia counterparts and generally get a lot hotter if left at stock or with a blower style cooler. This can be slightly negated if you're willing to do some tweaking and undervolt the card which decreases power and heat generation while a lot of the time increasing performance due to it thermal throttling less. If you are getting a card with an aftermarket cooler then you would be better off than using those stock blower style coolers since the double or triple fan designs can more efficiently dissipate heat. But all in all i think they're a good investment so long as they are at a cheaper price.

It requires me to download and updated version of Realtek Audio drivers. There are two options: - Realtek High Definition Audio Driver - Realtek HD Universal Driver

Do you know which one to use?

I've been looking at the Beyerdynamics DT 770 Pro and the DT 990 Pro. I'm not particularly experienced in the audio field so i'm wondering whether these would be good choices to pair with a V-MODA BoomPro mic and whether one is better than the other since they're similar in price in the UK.

Does modding the card involve anything physical or is it software based?

Also would modding the card void the warranty? (I've contacted Asus about the warranty and they stated that as long as overclocking and undervolting doesn't cause damage to the card itself then it doesn't void the warranty)

Also are there any dangers of damaging the card with modding it to increase power limits?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "CPU Cooler for Ryzen5.."

  • 8 months ago

That cooler is perfectly fine for cooling the Ryzen 5 2600 and stock and would be able to hold its boost clocks. If you were to overclock your CPU that cooler may not manage to push it very far, and probably wouldn't result in much gain over the boost speeds of the CPU. I use a Deepcool Gammax GT cooler on my Ryzen which has a bit better cooling potential and I've managed to overclock my CPU to 4GHz at 1.325V maxing out at 75C in aida64. Mileage may vary on your overclock due to silicon lottery.

The Corsair Vengeance memory is low profile and will be perfectly fine for the cooler you stated, as well as the one I use, the only problem that could arise with low profile ram is if your using a 2 fan cooler such as the dark rock pro 4 or the noctua NH-15.

Clearing the CMOS will revert all changes you've made to the BIOS back to default settings.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Overclock voltage for 4ghz on r5 2600?"

  • 10 months ago

I managed to Overclock to 4Ghz @1.325V stable as it won't reach 4.1Ghz stable @1.35V, think i got a bad chip.

So given my OC is 4Ghz @1.325V would you say this is a safe voltage that will keep the longevity of the chip if running 24/7?

Inside my monitors control panel(using the attached button/know) the FreeSync option is also greyed out. I heard somewhere that it's due to the monitors backlight strobing which needs to be turned off, however i can't find an option to do that anywhere

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Upgrade CPU or GPU?"

  • 11 months ago

In bf1 my CPU is almost always reaching 100% where as my gpu was sitting at a measely 40-50% I'm guessing this is due to it being CPU intensive. In other games like RS6 there a similar problems at times where it occasionally reaches 100% but not so much compared to bf1. There's no thermal throttling occuring or power delivery problems according msi after burner and Intel extreme tuning utility

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Abit of a pickle. Please help!"

  • 11 months ago

The main reason is because the a few games that I tend to play get bottlenecked by the i5 6500, since I play at 1080p 144hz the CPU is more dependant, so all in all I’m mainly looking to optimise my experience so I can keep a good 100+FPS on ultra, since atm to my surprise I’m getting around 50-60fps with a large amount of stuttering in bf1 for example. I’m not sure whether it’s my part personally or just the performance of the make of cpu in general. After 2 years of using it I think I’m ready to upgrade to a newer generation too.

I’m looking at the X470 Gaming Pro board, it’s advertised at 11 power phases however I can’t find anything on the mosfets or the amps.

There’s sites saying that the 11 phase design on the x470 gaming plus edition really has 4 power phases, however I’m unsure whether the pro version is the same.

I've changed the GPU to the gigabyte G1 Gaming as it seems to satisfy me, but going on about cpu coolers I really want a fairly quite one that keeps low temratures at all times and will last longer.

If your only gaming I suggest I cheaper processor and then downgrade to a fan, you will not need that 64gb of ram I suggest at most 32gb for gaming you might want to get a cheaper hard drive to add an ssd other than that this build is a beast and will do great things
