In Topic: Crossfire flow chart?

22 April 2017 - 06:01 PM

Yeah a lot has changed. Cables and bridges are no longer required for Crossfire. Simply have two compatible cards and turn the setting on in the control panel. I think if you still have like a X1900X you still need to use cables, but any modern AMD card no longer requires anything besides the cards themselves.

Yeah but those are single sided dimms (8GB) which have a lot less problems. the double sided 16GB ones have a much harder time running @ 3200. Looks like GSkill has 64GB 3200 Kits coming which is a sign things are getting fixed slowly.

From what I've read most Dimms will not run @ 3200 on the Ryzen yet. a Bios update will solve some of it. I was actually looking into buying similar GSkill memory for a Ryzen. It seems Gskill FlareX series for Ryzen is only rated up to 2400. Which tells me Ryzen really does have a problem with higher speeds. A lot of people have been able to get 2933 stable, but it's trial and error.


You can always run them at lower speeds until AMD fixes the problem. Though if its a memory controller issue, than a bios fix will not do much.

In Topic: 1080 ti - weird flicker after quiting Fire strike

Don't do any of the above suggestions . Just get ur self one of those fancy new flicker free monitors.

You can't 100% get the flicker away but 400 or 500hz monitor might do the trick :teehee:

In Topic: [WTS] Gigabyte r9 290 4GB

Looks like the cards together will draw 500watts of power under full stress load. You should be on the line of 750watts when everything is running at full. Very few powers supplies can actually run full load 24/7 and OCZ isn't one of them. You might be able to track down the OEM for that model and see who made it. But unless its a newer PSU or a over engineered one like Seasonic, EVGA or Corsair GOLD or Plat lineup, I wouldn't trust it being able to handle 750 for long periods of time. Best could happen is it trips the safety. Worst the caps blow and takes out the computer. I've seen both.


Those 290s eat a lot of power!
