Continue to check for BIOS updates that might resolve this.

Nice to see builds that are not for gaming. Thanks gor posting. Enjoy!

I have the same issue with my RAM on an ASUS B450 MB. I bought 2 seperate 16 GB kits and later learned I should have bought 1 32 GB kits because they are certified at these higher clock speeds as a single kit. At 3100 speed I'm quite satisfied.

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 12 days ago

Thanks for the indepth analysis of your build. I just would have liked to have hear more about sound dampening and fan curves. Just kidding. I would prefer dental cavity drilling without novacane instead. I just hope you created a "Silent Build", the requirements for which you can find online. Good work!

Killer GPU and nice CPU. You could have also named this Green Lantern RTX.

Rocketguy53's Completed Build: DEP Engineering Workstation

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 17 days ago

Sorry. On most MBs each NVME port takes up 2 SATA ports. This MB must be special.

Rocketguy53's Completed Build: DEP Engineering Workstation

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 17 days ago

Awesome machine! Nice job keeping it under $5K. A good thing you selected a MB with 8 SATA ports as you needed them all.

Markgee10's Completed Build: Humboldt Heavy Hitter v4.1ghz

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 18 days ago

Eight core CPU for under $175. That's almost more amazing thatn getting that cooler inside that case.

Have you tried OCing yet? Details please.

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 18 days ago

What apps are you using that require so many cores/threads?

Merlac's Completed Build: Aurora Borealis

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 18 days ago

How do you like the Dell monitor? I bought the same one in December and the colors look amazing.

maddog62's Completed Build: Black & White Amateur Content Creation / Gaming Build

maddog62 submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 days ago

Not hard at all. Just loosen a thumb screw in the back and it pops out and slides up/off.

Nice gaming build. 1 pt from me. I bet the games play nicely for years to come. Thx for posting.

Yeah, electrinocs can be pricey in most European countries compared to US

Nice build. I converted swedish krona to usd and it came to about $1,900 USD.

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 22 days ago

An OCable iCPU that includes a cooling fan for under a $100? Amazing! The rasperypie of CPUs.

princeofkolkata's Completed Build: Updating my first build

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 22 days ago

I still have a SB 2400 CPU and it works fine for anything but gaming so I built my forst PC in Nov and love it. I started gaming in the mid 70s on my TV with games like pong and block out, progressing to PC gaming in the 90s with games like Myst and Riven, where you were happy to get 1 frame per sec at 640 res. Now you are playing at 144 fps! Say WHAAAAT!

Ridha's Completed Build: THREAD-RIPPER Battle Station

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 23 days ago

Nice CPU. Rip those threads Baybay!

AceTheBase's Completed Build: My First Gaming PC Ever

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 23 days ago

I'm guessing the games he's playing are not CPU intensive. Otherwise they would have recommended a 2700x and RTX1080 with $ to spare for a 1TB SSD.

AceTheBase's Completed Build: My First Gaming PC Ever

maddog62 1 Build 3 points 23 days ago

Very nice build with plenty of room for growth, exept for the RTX. Congratulations!

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 25 days ago

Nice B&W build. The parts & cables look great! Enjoy!

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Great AMD Gaming/Streaming Build

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 25 days ago

I disagree since streaming is one of the use cases. Without the need for that, changing to the 1660TI is a no-brainer and reduce the price to the magic $1K figure.

Welcome back. Nice job! I see 2 extra fans in the pic not on parts list. What are they?

Very nice parts and build. Cingratulations. Amazing prices too. I would have gone with a 27" or 34" monitor. 1 pt from me.

Killermammoth's Completed Build: ($1000 Budget) The Beefy Microwave

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Nice build. I bet it works well at 2K with High settings. How did you get that GPU for that $? Most are in the $450 range.

Nateschenck's Completed Build: First Build! (Red/Black)

Very nice of you to do this for him. Nice CPU, GPU and Ram! Why no SSD? Are you carrying some kind or grudge?

I bought it from V1 Tech. It did not stick well to the back so its kind of sitting there, which is fine.

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Good idea pairing with your home AV system. I bet it looks and sounds awesome!

mkobrien49's Completed Build: The Tax Return Rebuild

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Have you tried turbo mode? OCing?

You should be at least up to 4.3 with that cooler, possibly stable at 4.5.

cgarray17's Completed Build: Water Beast

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

You should be able to run the CPU at 4.5 or higher. Have you tried?

saracatlee's Completed Build: Project N.E.R.G.B.

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

What speed do you run your CPU?

danlongman's Completed Build: My System

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

How do you get 4.2 on all cores using the stock cooler? Has it been stable?

abellp's Completed Build: First time Micro build (2019

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Very nice build in a small case. That RTX should handle the video decoding for streaming on its own without the need for a second PC. Enjoy!

saracatlee's Completed Build: Project N.E.R.G.B.

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

This SHOULD be featured!

Holy Cow! This machine has more lights than a 6:00 AM FBI raid at a peaceful residence! Absolutely beautiful. I changed mine from tainbow to white to match my B&W build. Enjoy!

mkobrien49's Completed Build: The Tax Return Rebuild

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I just saw on the news that the avg tax return will be about $1,650 this year. I always owe and am guessing I will owe that amt.

mkobrien49's Completed Build: The Tax Return Rebuild

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

When buying higher speed RAM you should buy it in one kit because each kit is tested on ots own and not guaranteed to work with other kits, even if they are the same part number from the same vendor.

TechFox's Completed Build: CyberWare

maddog62 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Nice parts selection for the purpose. Pics are very good too. I bet you can get work done in half the time now. Congratulations!

AidenC's Completed Build: My First Gaming PC Build

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

What did you chose as a display?

AidenC's Completed Build: My First Gaming PC Build

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Nice parts and build. I suggest adding a 500 GB or large SSD for video editing as disc IO can be intense at times. Enjoy!

rel904's Completed Build: 2019 Streaming Build - Thermaltake Micro-ATX i5 9600K

maddog62 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I have seen reports that OBS does the encoding in the GPU. I wonder why other streaming software does not offer the same feature. It would remove the need for a second PC.
