  5. We've had several reviews go up this week, along with a bunch more from our affiliates, so this roundup focuses on ones you might have missed from OCC and elsewhere. We had a new headset from MSI, a look at Offworld Trading Company, and our picks for the Top 3 Coolers of 2019. There are also two video reviews, covering the Scythe Big Shuriken 3 cooler and the Anda Seat E Series Gaming Chair. Flipping around to our affiliates, there's a look at the Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER Gaming OC 6G video card. For something a bit lower, there's the Zotac GTX 1650 SUPER Twin Fan, giving you two options to consider for that wishlist. There's also an article taking a look at the $400 video cards from 2016 compared to the $400 video cards of 2019, showcasing what that amount of money bought you then versus now. If you're after some new memory, perhaps the HyperX Fury RGB DDR4-3200 16GB kit will hit the spot. If you instead need faster storage, then the Sabrent Rocket 1TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD would solve all of that. The Razer Viper Ultimate Wireless Gaming Mice gets reviewed to see how it performs and if it should find a home on your desk. Wrapping things up is a look at the Creative Outlier Air Wireless Sweatproof In-Ear Headphones, as well as a look at the Best Headphones of 2019 to cover pretty much any budget, style, and musical taste.

    X370 bios update

    Thank you. I thought I remembered resetting bios before flashing to new bios, but Mr. memory aint what it used to be. Still leaning towards the carbon pro for my pc the sli plus for the wifes. Is the carbon pro That much better? MSI web site makes it seem like the audio section is the bees knees. Since it'll be doing dbl or triple duty music creation, graphics creation ,folding and maybe some video editing that one may be the better choice. Thoughts? In any event it will be a long drawn out process to get the stuff for both. THX again..

    X370 bios update

    If your system is overclocked it is advisable to reset the BIOS to default before updating,.. mainly to ensure you do not have any unstable system overclocks applied that could cause the system to hang while flashing.

    X370 bios update

    Always best to flash a BIOS from fresh. I always hit Set to Default and then flash.
  14. Is it advisable to reset the bios to default before updating the bios.Got the ram dialed up from 2133 to 2933 and cpu up just a little also and that's it.Or can I just update it and go ,I'm leaning towards reset. Been a loooong time since Ive updated a bios on a motherboard.Think mmmm close to a decade.I seem to remember it was recommended to reset MB to defaults,makes sense. MSI has released a bios that supports the Ryzen 2000 and 3000 cpu's.Plus the cpu I have now is supported in the bios. I do have 2 motherboards to use the MSI x370 sli plus, that I luckily won in the Christmas contest here and an MSI Gaming pro carbon my son gave me cause he didn't want to update the bios for a new cpu.Both have same type of update I believe.I'm leaning towards the pro carbon one.Same process for both but more work.And sloooowly build a Ryzen pc to surprise the wifey with the Sli plus and the cpu I have now in it. What has brought this on is Ive been doing a lot of graphic stuff lately and the Cpu I have now is slower than Id like/need it to be, even overclocked a smidge. Was thinking more cores the better for the rendering/graphics stuff Ive been doing..The program i use can use 16 cores I have 4 now. With 2 video cards folding 24/7 the vast majority of the time for OCC that doesn't leave many cores for folding.Folding alone is taxing 50-60 % on all of the cores. Cpu now is still fast as it is but multi threaded performance is a bit lightish.Sorry for the rambling thread.

    Darksiders Genesis Releases

    Today Darksiders Genesis has released, finally allowing players to play as Strife, the last of the series' Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to be playable.

With today's release, it is available on PC and on Google Stadia. For those wanting to play it on console, it will come to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on February 14, 2020.     Source: THQ Nordic Back to original news post

  24. Today EK Water Blocks announced it is releasing new EK-Vardar EVO 140 ER D-RGB fans. These 140 mm fans feature nine addressable LEDs under its motor hub and its seven fan blades are transparent, but frosted to disperse the light. The lighting is controlled by a standard 3-pin 5 V D-RGB connector, so it can work with any controller that also uses that standard. Turning to the fan specifications, these are high-static pressure fans targeting high-performance liquid cooling systems. They are PWM controlled and offer an extended range from 400 RPM up to 1600 RPM, allowing you to tune for noise and performance as you wish. If the fan curve is set to below 25-30%, depending on the motherboard, the fan's Start-Stop function will trigger the motor and electronics to turn off, so the fan will go completely silent until it is needed again. EK-Vardar EVO 140ER D-RGB fans are available for purchase already at EK's webshop and via its reseller network with a price of $28.99. Source: EK Water Blocks Back to original news post

    Well it should go at 100 MB/s or higher. Do you have the chipset drivers installed? I know it sounds stupid but if you don't have the right drivers than it reverts to USB 2.0 and uses Windows defaults ones. The other option is one drive is bad, which is why the read (or write) speed is so low. I guess it also could be if you are copying lots of little files than it will give you a false number. Try copying one big file and see if goes. Lots of choices....
