    I think my pc diying. Psu or ? Shutdown

    Stop. Two choices. Stop. Or sell your shit and buy a prebuilt.

    Dude. Buy a Dell. You’re not cut out for custom gear.

    Dude. Seriously. Run some hardware checks if you want but the thing is fine. We’re done here. Stop panicking and use your computer.

    Dude, seriously? People don't do this shit. Quit it.

    Not likely. Get a UPS if you want to be sure.

    Systems that are PERFECTLY fine crash sometimes. Every software has a bug in it somewhere.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    He did the right thing for pre-Ryzen AMD or even Intel (although it's faster on intel to just whack the XMP button too). Lots of drivers not loaded, lots of things not running. Makes sense actually. Wish we had a process or something that we could see taking the CPU or a hardware piece...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    No doubt. He just didn't know some of the stupid Ryzen tricks we've all learned the insanely hard way. Trust me, my first X370 system was the same way - there's lots of AMD "tricks" you learn - Intel tends to be more "out of the box" ready, for better or worse. See prior comments on...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Yes, so we can set them correctly. I have no idea what your friend set - he clearly set parts of it manually, and parts of it on auto, and that isn't a sane path anymore (it used to be, things change). With Ryzen? Yep, it's a bad thing. Ryzen is picky. Perfectly stable once you set it...

    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    Feature rich definitely not, but well built? The $500/600 still have the build quality from what I’ve seen, just drop the extra features. You drop from there and you start to lose build features, but you can make that trade off without losing quality - just the extras. No?

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Generally it's under the save/exit page in the BIOS - would be something there that says reset to default. No need to touch batteries or pins anymore! Sure. That'll try replacing files from teh WIM image on the media. I'm always sketched out about that from WAY too much history to bother -...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Chkdsk tells you if the filesystem is fine (it is, apparently). The drive itself will throw SMART errors (it isn't) if it's broken - that'll show up all over the place. That leaves file contents, and there's no way to really check those other than checksum against a known-good file of the...

    No. It was a bug. Bugs happen. Shit happens. Computers crash sometimes. No code is perfect.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Yeah. My money is on crashes from RAM - and you finally corrupted the inside of a file (hence why things are going weird) on a crash. It's rare, but it can happen. PS losing things - the file wasn't closed, and the fall back is probably "create new file" when its trashed. So, to my prior...

    No- your license is fine. I buy a real one and just use a win10 media to install 😂

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Fix the core cause, or it'll just come back (and you're likely going to have to reinstall windows anyway afterwards either way). No. It'll be fine. :) It'll run forever at 60+c without even blinking - that's well within thermal design spec. Troubleshooting generally doesn't happen much at...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    All that does is run a chkdsk. It won't hurt, but the times I've seen that help in 20 years can be counted without even taking my shoes off. NTFS is damned good at handling that stuff automatically unless the drive itself actually died. There's also no detail on what it supposedly...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    I'm tempted to let Dan comment, since I'm 99.9% positive he had an OCed 5950X on the Godlike - he'll know what is off from stock or not, or fi there's a global setting doing something I forgot about.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Ok. So they configured XMP speeds without using XMP - weird, but... ok... huh. I'm wondering what else he/she/it tweaked. Some of that doesn't look normal. It almost looks like they locked it to 3.7Ghz all-core, instead of boosting/etc... Sadly, I don't have much hands-on time with modern...

    So it’s set to auto, but somehow getting to 1.1. Did you build this or buy it?

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Sadly no detail to tell us what WAS wrong. Just that something went wrong. It's hard to break the filesystem of an SSD - not hard to break NTFS though.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    I haven't since the pre-NT days either, so I'm drawing a blank. Something like the RealTime latency monitors might show something, but heck if I know. My gut would be rebuild from scratch, but I also know the urge to avoid that like the plague. All my modern interrupt tuning has been on ESXi...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Sure! You're running XMP speeds, one way or another - 3600mhz is not a stock RAM speed (JEDEC, the board that determines ram specs, stopped at 2133 for DDR4, IIRC). This is NORMAL - no one runs stock JEDEC RAM unless you're building a server with ECC RAM, and even THOSE finally started...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    Ok. So you see down under voltage where it says CPU NB/SoC Voltage, Auto? Set that to 1.1 instead. Stock is 1, which is often too low for most RAM (G.Skill seems to be the only one happy there, and even then, at larger quantities, it wants to get flaky).

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    this is also very possible. Interrupts are literally a device or thing telling the cpu "stop, do THIS" - with that many, you're constantly interrupting (lol) the CPU to do something other than what it was GOING to do prior. Hence performance. Now the question is where those are coming from.

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    So for SoC we'll need more. Don't have an MSI board handy, but it'd normally be under overclocking or the like, where hte other CPU and RAM Voltages are. Can you send a pic of the full bios? I'll walk you to it - I know where it is, just can't remember the steps till I see them. I suspect...

    New 5900X rig suddenly running sluggish (need help identifying & solving)

    live boot linux and see if it works. With that RAM - what's SoC voltage set to? (I've ALWAYS had to bump it for Corsair to be stable at XMP on x570/Zen).

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    Because Canada isn’t the us. Different countries, different rules. I’m only paying attention to the US in that discussion. And yeah, it happens, but something this obvious would get you slapped hard- especially given the focus on it right now. Nvidia and AMD aren’t going there- that’s jail time...

    Uh. History. Google. And: MBA, expert in this field, work for vendors in question, have to fill out ethics docs on it regularly. You cannot tell someone what to charge for their product using your parts. Look up the DRAM fines. Or any of the others. And execs can see jail time on it too. It’s...

    Illegal in the “SEC says hello, you’re paying our salaries!” Sense. This is mucho bad idea. It’s price fixing and they really slam you on that

    That would be illegal. They cannot impose restrictions on what someone charges for the end device.

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Rebuild mine twice - Zenth II Extreme Alpha, XL, etc, all standoffs (has to be, it's an EATX board) - it still doesn't line up right unless you have it in somewhat loose, install the gpu, tighten down the board, and then finally finish the GPU install. :( edit: oddly enough, my Zenith I also...

    AMD SATA RAID & overclocking

    Any crash requires verification that the array is "clean" - that's even true of most software RAID (or should be). If one of the drives caused the crash, you don't want to do shit with bad data.

    Extreme difficulty slotting RTX 3090 into Z690 motherboard

    Ah. Yeah. Things don't line up on those sometimes all that well. I've had fits with mine - Dan_D's worked perfectly it sounds like, mine has issues the opposite way (the MB wants to cinch down ~too~ far, and the GPU won't be fully in the slot). Had to do a LOT of tweaking to get that to work...
