  1. Well It's not Folding that's shutting pc down. PC rebooted overnight And mouse freezes are back grrrrrr. Odd that i have to login/ use pin everytime it does it.
  2. Only program that runs when I'm not using it is FAH. I shut Fah down before I went to anniversary dinner with wife didn't shut off. Came home did some cruising on the internet for about an hr or so and no/zero mouse problems at all... Narrowed it down a little more I'd think. Power supply or Fah or windows handling of fah. Did see pcie errors in the event viewer said some thing about legacy Have to find it again. Hate tracking down random errors.
  3. Ran Memtest86 had zero errors. At least its narrowing it down a bit as to what the problem is.
  4. This board does support 1 NVME. Memory "SHOULD" be fine I'm not overclocking it or changing any of the settings but I will checkout Memtest86 just to make sure. Did go into the event viewer and have seen multiple errors ,power to the kernel error and more..Total number of events 15,371 in event viewer most are warnings.
  5. Currently I'm not using the S/pdif on my amp I cant . My onboard sound card don't have S/pdif.I'm using 3.5mm to RCA cables. 3.5mm from onboard sound to inputs on the amp. The amp is a 7.2 home theater receiver from Yamaha with Klipsch 2 satellites and center, 2 Sony monitors plus 2 Optimus monitors from radio shack(old as methusila) and a Klipsch powered subwoofer.Yeah I know mixed speakers not a perfect match. Using the multi channel input on the amp to get the sound from Pc. The S/pdif may/could be used for a better audio production set of monitors is what I'm thinking. Run straight direct setting from amp to the near field monitors switch inputs and still have the rest of the speakers to play games(if I ever get into it again) and listen to music while I'm playing. Don't think the mother board likes this new processor. Pc reboots over night or after long period of me not doing stuff on it. Plus sound makes a grrrrrt elecrical sound thru the speakers now and again plus mouse randomly stops/freezes for 3-5 to 8 seconds when sound is heard sometimes. New MB may be coming up sooner than later. Maybe one of the updates from windows is the culprit. I know for a fact windows messes with reapers functioning if you put off an update for too long.
  6. Does the sound on these mother boards with dacs in them actually route to the S/pdif ports? Most of the boards say the audio is electrically isolated,so will that have less noise using S/pdif wise. My amp already uses a burr brown dac on all the channels192k 24 bits. Just wondering cause my amp has an S/pdif port.
  7. Ive got 2 windows in the room that are covered in 4in of acoustic foam(zero light coming through) and 1 ceiling light with 3 daylight temperature 60w led light bulbs above and behind me.That should be a consistent enough light source for lighting and its not super bright up there.Basically a loft that I pretty much have that all to myself other than a boatload of rubbermade totes jam packed full of yarn for the wife and my instruments amps and a huge L shaped desk. Yup I do like the ambient light sensor that the i1 DisplayPro has, real good feature. I can see how that can and will help with my perception of what the colors will actually look like once printed. Then again it all depends on the printer. Any company that prints for a living should have the thing calibrated to the ninth degree. May try and send an image to the HP office jet 8702 printer we have for grins and giggles. Try the different papers etc. Just to see what it looks like. Your thoughts on curved monitors? I can see how while gaming they would be nice especially with 3 or more.Office productivity they would also be good But no real benefit doing the 3d graphics and editing stuff.
  8. Hmm apparently my card can do the 10bit thing for Open GL with the Studio update drivers.. Cool. Downloading drivers now. Yikes 542 mb. That will take a while on my connection lol.Think cup and string connection. 30K for a monitor bout spit my coffee out on my keyboard on that price. At that price it should make artwork for you with verbal commands. Been using that 32in 1080 Samsung tv for some time now and I like the size. Have 2 24's flanking it and I cant read crap on them unless I'm close enough to lick the screen.. (Yeah I'm getting old.)Guess a trip to the store that has 27's might be in order just to see if its feasible.
  9. Ive been crawling down that rabbit hole now for about 2 weeks. Trying to soak up the lingo as much as I can. It's a lot of info to digest for sure. Reading reviews from sites reading reviews from ppl who bought them etc. Kinda driving me insane. Not that it's that far of a drive though.Right now cost is the biggest factor and unfortunately a good one is pricey from what Ive seen so far. Pros and cons and compromises. And that's just for the monitor not the calibration device rabbit hole. Not sure who the band will be printing with. More than likely a very professional shop since the singer is kinda connected.Personally knows and is friends with a lot ppl in audio & video industry. So I'd like to get a monitor as close to true color as I can afford. Then upgrade when some cash is coming my way from it. I appreciate all the help so far..
  10. That Xrite i1studio looks sweet. Could come in handy when the wife gets me an iPhone 11 pro max for Christmas.Should work on her iPhone and iPad also. That dell monitor sure is nice but I'm not too sure the financial manager (wife)of the household would care for that price lol.Seeing as though Im still an amateur at this stuff(not paid) Did approve of the price range of the proart though. How close to true color representation is 80% Adobe RGB accuracy? The statement of any IPS panel does that include TV's? Rather have a monitor though,they seem to last longer/better made.
  11. Ive been looking for a good 4k 32in monitor to do some 3d and graphics work.Id want accurate color representation SRGB and Adobe RGB an IPS panel ,4.4.4 chroma etc etc.Been eyeballing the Asus pro art but some folks have a problem with dead pixels. Doesn't say much for quality control of the panels. There's also a cpl of Ben q Ive eyeballed that look promising. It more than likely wont be used for gaming but cant rule that out.Any others? Will be picking up a calibrator tool to reset/test said monitor for accuracy from time to time. Just to make sure it don't drift. The images/animations I make will be projected to a large screen behind a band ,some More than likely will go to print. It would be nice if it looks like what it's supposed too.More professional. Also I run 3 monitors. So the 4k one will be in the middle plus 1 1080 32in led TV's on either side mainly to undock parts of the programs to free up main screen space plus run other programs.
  12. Yeah IM good for a little bit at least till the GAS kicks back in(gear acquisition syndrome) Never bought an Intel hard drive before.Good to know options. I do plan on at least 1 NVME drive for this machine.Eventually 2 or more with the switch to a different MB. 1 for OS and programs, 1 to send work to and bigger spinners for storage and backups.Mb right now only has 1 spot for NVME and a bunch of SATA spots. Them PCIE Optane drives look interesting from Intel.Not too sure about suitability though.And they be pricey.
  13. I am sticking with the x370 for awhile.At least till Ive saved enough to get an x570 or whatever chip set AMD has at that time.My recordings right now are not that complex but stepsonish will be sending me his songs to do some mixing/mastering fairly soon..Then I'd more than likely need faster everything.Eventually I'd like to add a cpl of NVME drives.The PCIE 4 is faster so I can load plugins from them and have them react in a close to real time with out any or veeery limited lag/latency then render it out as high a quality as I can get it to be.Then an upgrade to a more professional 3d program that will use as many cores as I can throw at it. So renders don't take a loooooong time. And have more features which need more speed etc. Well that's the plan anyhow.
  14. Higher bit rate and s/n ratio does sound better. I've seen at least 1 onboard audio have 134 s/n ratio not sure if that was just for the headphones or not. Most are below 124 or less. I'm partially deaf in certain frequencies one frequency I don't hear at all but its in the really high range so its probably a moot point. I usually keep a good eye on the levels so I'm not saturating it with too much of certain frequencies when I record.Probably just get one with the highest s/n ratio and all the other fancy gizmos I'd like to have. A lot do the 44/24 that's why it sounds brash and garbled and distorted. Not clean.
  15. Wow this things a beast! idles at 37degrees not 50 like ive seen in the reviews ,in Cinebench it never goes over 68c seen random boosts up to 4.6 GHz. Was a bit concerned it took quite a bit to boot up but I was prepped for that from the reviews.Normal boot times are a smidgen longer not an insane amount just a touch.I can live with that.Real happy so far with it. Real happy.
  16. I've never considered the b550. Plus what would be recomended for the sound card?
  17. Ace is one of the others that I liked. Asus tuff is another along with crosshair VIII,Asrock tiachi plus others.Still narroowing it dn. My list of haves include blutooth,wifi 5 or 6,good quality VRMS and as many phases as possible for stability,onboard audio that's a step above(prolly most important). I don't need RGB but who knows I might like it. OK little of what I'm doing with the PC...... I do my own recordings of me playing bass.Also use EZ drummer with Reaper DAW ,stepsonish sends me stuff from his band I send him back stuff. Plus ALOT of rendering/and graphic stuff for his band. I'm retired so Ive got whatever time Ive got left to do what Id like to do, like maybe start gaming again.And I listen to a bunch of different music from different inputs USB stick,CD's,blutooth,internet or an actual turntable etc.Plenty of usb ports
  18. That's why I'm not going to use the included cooler. Ill be using the Dark Rock Pro 3 from Bequiet tdp of 250. Looks like they are 50a from 25c to 100c. Cool Im not going to be doing alot/any overclocking till I save up to get a nice x570 MB. Just whatever it boosts to maybe.May constrain it a little at first till I can verify what the vrms heat up too.Do have a hand held laser pointer type temp sensor gizmo so I can see what they are doing heat wise.Its pretty accurate,used it at work when maintenance was using one of their massive very expensive hand held ones that had thermal imaging.Held a 1-2c from what they got. May as well use for what its intended for other than a laser chase toy for my Mastiff.. 4 plus one does seem to be kinda light for that processor. Ive looked for that pdf info online and didn't find it in the past.THX ALOT!!! Been eyeing the aorus extreme/master from gigabyte and the tomahawk from MSI plus a cpl of others.Really like the godlike from MSI but that price eek gad.Thoughts?
  19. Same here on how "compatible" it is. But Ive seen multiple x370 boards reviewed after it was installed and it worked fine. That said it seems all MB of same brand and model act differently to it. Ppl with a boat load stuff in their PC (HD's,lots of USB stuff etc)seem to have more trouble.Prolly a VRM issue I'd think. My pc is still fairly basic.2 HD 2-4 usb connected. Know of any free bench marking stuff /monitoring so i can do the benchmarks with current CPU and new CPU just to see exactly what has changed. I have Cinebench,Unigine,Coretemp,AMD Ryzen Master , CPUZ,GPUZ and HWINFO 64 do I really need any others? I was worried it would come all banged up seeing as though it got rerouted more than once.Box was in perfect condition from Newegg they could have put the air pillows in better positions to protect the sides and top. Seal from AMD intact and inner box good shape. Wont be using the included cooler in this machine.It'll go into the other MB my son sent me.Along with some swapping of other stuff from this machine.Making a render node out of his MB and old CPU from my PC that's connected to my router via wifi and or wired Ethernet to another pc(2011 socket Sabertooth with 3820 in it).
  20. The wife bought me an AMD 3900x for fathers day. Going to put it in an MSI x370 sli plus prolly tomorrow.It's out for delivery right now. Already updated the Bios and have been using it for awhile now with no complications no slow boots etc.And my son is sending me his old flare 3200 ram (He built a new pc)that will be here some time this week. Woohoo.
  21. Folding for the 11762 and 11763 right now.
  22. 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..
