Even with the volume maxed all I hear is fans. If that's what it is it is normal if you are gaming or are doing some cpu/gpu intensive task. If it's doing that on idle you may want to download HWmonitor and see if you have an overheating component. Normal is 40-60c while idle 60-80c while under load. Bad is anything past 80c.
If you are using an hdd with like 8 GB of ram then I could see this causing 40 fps. If you don't have at least 16 GB of ram then rip performance. I personally have an SSD and 2 16 GB dims of memory clocked at 3200 mhz. Also you should make sure your graphics driver is up to date if you are using an nvidia gpu. Obviously make sure your video cable whether its Hdmi, Display Port, or Dvi is plugged into your gpu. Check your temps under load as well, could be thermal throttling. You can check temps using a program call CPUID HWMonitor . If all else fails then verify integrity of game files and restart your game. Your hardware should be suffice to run rust if you have good memory. Hopefully this will help you somewhat. Cheers and have a good wipe.
Download CrystalDiskInfo to check if your hard drive is OK. If it is, then run "Windows Memory Diagnostic" to check for RAM issues. If that comes up short, it might be worth testing the memory again with Memtest86.
To check for overheating, use HWMonitor. If your CPU is getting too hot, it could be that you need to reapply thermal compound. Since your PC is pretty old, that could be the issue.
Well a game is always going to be more resource intensive in VR no matter what. It's kind of concerning that you say you get over 60 easily, cause you should actually be getting a solid 90 fps in desktop mode with those PC specs. I would say, make sure you aren't using your onboard intel GPU for anything, especially make sure you plugged the rift's HDMI into your nvidia and not the onboard one, and also consider getting HWMonitor and keep track of your CPU and GPU temperatures (it has a section to see max temps for each). If you're getting close to 90c then your CPU will throttle and run much slower. I mention this cause this was one of my friend's issues that couldn't run VR, she bought a new CPU cooler and fixed all her issues.
1) Outside of simple theme changes, you can change animation and other performance-impacting options through the "Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows" setting. You can get there from the searching from the start menu or through control panel.
2) For things like CPU/GPU usage, RAM, Storage etc, the in-built task manager is excellent. Beyond that, temperatures can be checked with HWMonitor. You may want to check out Ninite for a list of commonly installed third party programs on new systems, which also allows you to get an automatic single installer for a selection of them.
3) Most modern programs leave very little in the way of residual files once uninstalled through the Programs list. I wouldn't be concerned about this at this stage. Should you come across something tough to remove, there are hard remover programs, but they're generally not free (aside from trial periods) but can purge things completely.
4) Check out the Windows Backup options, as I understand it this is similar to time machine in that it can use a local or network drive to periodically backup whatever data you desire.
Concerning your last point, my personal philosophy is to try and avoid installing lots of additional software, and to only install a program when I need its functionality. Windows has enough tools built in to keep the system healthy so you don't need to worry about "optimization" software. Disk defragging, cache management etc is all handled automatically.
Along these lines, I'd recommend not using an external antivirus, Windows Defender is extremely capable and has been competitive with other antivirus software since around 2012. However, no antivirus will deal with malware and adware as well as Malwarebytes, so I'd recommend using that if you concerned about those sorts of things. Good luck!
Do you feel like it is bottlenecking or is it actually bottlenecking? I ask because you may end up wasting your money without realising.
If it's the former, I suggest downloading this program and looking at the utilisation values for both your GPU and CPU when running your usually played games.
If your CPU hits 100% before your GPU does, then it is being bottlenecked (vice-versa means you have a GPU bottleneck). However, make sure you get your fps reading as well. If you have a 60hz monitor and you're getting consistent 60fps in your games, then even if your CPU is technically bottlenecking your GPU it still wouldn't make any difference if you upgraded your CPU. Your monitor would still only be displaying 60 frames per second, no matter what your CPU + GPU combo can produce.
But to answer your question directly, the best available CPU for that socket is the 5950X. But the best value for money CPU for gaming specifically will be the 5600X (according to the benchmarks, you'll get 95% of the performance of the 5950X for gaming. If you do any video processing or things like that, the 5900X and 5950X are significantly better in those specific use cases).

If you're hitting anywhere over 95c your components will start freaking out. Download hwmonitor to watch your temps. It's possible you could fix your problem with just a cooler if that's the issue.
Make sure you have adequate cooling.
It is really easy to overlook CPU cooling especially if you've already upgraded from the stock heatsink, but it can still happen even with good aftermarket coolers. I had similar problems to yours with intense sudden fps drops to near 0 across multiple games with seemingly no explanation. At one point I happened to have hardware monitor open and notice that my CPU temps were hitting 60+C which caused thermal throttle to engage on the CPU which resulted in odd behavior and fps drops as low as 1-2fps. As soon as the temp hit mid 50s I'd be back to 60fps like nothing happened.
You'll be perfectly fine. At most you'll get a bit more noise as the rest of the fans in the system ramp up a bit to compensate. If you want to be sure, download something like HWMonitor, then run a game for a while & see what the CPU & GPU temps maxed out at (if you want you can reply to this comment with those numbers, along with what CPU & GPU you have, and I'll check if the temps are within safe limits).
Besides, even if it did overheat, all that would cause is a slowdown as the CPU/GPU throttled themselves to reduce the load & cool down. In the case of a severe overheat, the PC would shut itself down to protect the components (this isn't going to happen due to the loss of a single intake fan).
You aren't going to break anything unless you go into the BIOS & recklessly throw around high-voltage overclocking settings. For day to day normal operation, there are systems in place to make sure things don't get so toasty they take damage.
Start up HW Monitor to check system temps. If CPU or GPU are going over 80c they're thermal throttling. Could be a simple fix like changing the default fan curve to something more aggressive (loud), or could be something more complicated like properly installing the CPU cooler. Don't freak if the GPU fans aren't spinning at idle, most newer cards turn them off at lower temps to keep the noise level down.
Make sure the RAM is running at it's rated speed, with any luck you got sticks that are happy at at least 3000mhz but I'd shoot for 3200mhz. I'll be amazed if it running slower than 3000mhz is the entire issue but I'm betting it's part of the issue.
Another thing to try is DDU. Before running that, manually download the latest chipset drivers and GPU drivers. Then follow the directions at the link to uninstall all the GPU/chipset drivers, then install the new ones. Chipset first, then reboot then GPU.
Ok, multiple things could be happening:
First of all, if anything is overclocked, your PC may be failing because one part isn't stable enough, even if it may work in other games. Reset to defaults or test,test,test.
Second: load & run https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html and watch ALL the temperatures while you are playing. If anything goes above 80°C except your GPU, this part is overheating. If your GPU goes above 90°C, the GPU is overheating.
Third: Your memory may be failing. Use https://www.memtest86.com/ to test your Ram.
Although your PSU should be good enough, it may be failing as well. If some part is not getting enough power, the voltage will surge and you PC just shuts off. Hard to test this one.
Performance begins tanking, system gives up after 5 minutes...sounds like overheating. Use HWMonitor and watch your CPU temperatures. If they start going above 90C, you've got big problems. Systems will shut off around 100C as a protection against overheating.
Try and feel for any air coming out of vents too. If you notice a lack of airflow, it could be a dead fan.
Well, all you will be doing is install the software and read the temperature of parts. If they go up like 100 C (different for different component), then there could be a problem worth checking.
Let me know if you get any issues. Thanks
Hey, we're probably going to need a little more to go on. Could you for example install something like https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html or something you feel comfortable to monitor temperature and other stats on your system. It could be something like the card getting hot and reducing it's clock speed. But we won't know until we can get some more information. What happens to the system when this happens.
Anything with graphs would be really helpful that can monitor multiple statistics. So we can see something happen which then has so and so effect.
You can verify it is the correct temp using HWMonitor. Just check to see they both match. My guess, is it pulls that temp from the same place your system does. So probably, yes.
41c is a common AIO idle temp, depending on your processor and ambient temp. Maybe a tad high but, depends on your case and use. I doubt its wrong though.
There are tools you can use to monitor temps on CPU and GPU.
This is a lightweight easy to use one: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
Download the zip version and extract and run the file ending in x64.exe Play the game in windowed mode with Hardware Monitor open next to it.
Your CPU is rated for 3.7 GHz clock speed boosting to 4.7GHz where power limits and temperature allow. It has 95W TDP. It will use more than 95W in short bursts but for extended loads (like playing a game) it will limit itself to 95W.
Your CPU should be using 95W of power (within margin of error) under load and be somewhere between 3.7GHz and 4.7GHz on the clock speed. It will not throttle until it hits 100C although you should aim to run it much cooler than that anyway to give some headroom and minimise wear.
If those numbers are all about right then the issue is not with the CPU.
All of this is assuming no overclock.
Task manager almost always shows 0% gpu usage, it's not correct, 0%gpu would give you 0 fps. If your CPU is at 78.2% then your CPU is not the problem at least. I'm pretty sure your gpu is at 100%.
You can download HWmonitor from here: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html and check to be sure.
Θα κατεβάσεις το HWMonitor θα το βάλεις να βλέπεις θερμοκρασίες και θα το αφήσεις ανοιχτό.
Θα ανοίξεις ένα παιχνίδι και θα παρακολουθείς ποια θερμοκρασία ανεβαίνει (κατά 99% επεξεργαστής θα είναι).
Είτε το CPU είτε το GPU θα ανεβάζει.
Πήγαινε στο skroutz και πάρε μια θερμοαγώγιμη πάστα με 5-10€ - Arctic και Noctua θα πρότινα - και βγάλε την ψύκτρα αυτού που ζεσταίνεται, πάρε ένα χαρτί κουζίνας και οινόπνευμα και καθάρισε όλη την παλιά παστα και βάλε καινούρια πάστα..

Firstly don't change anything with the device, if it still has warranty or support then contact the people you bought it from.
When you play games usually the PC works harder in most areas so it opens up several areas to investigate.
My first guess would be heat... anything in your PC could be over heating and shutting off... usually a great deal of heat onto the CPU will cause Blue Screens and restarts.
Go and download and application called HWMonitor
This is a free application that allows you to monitor heat in several areas.
It won't indicate what is hot but for a 5600x its too hot if it exceeds 85c
If you get stuck at any point then feel free to DM me.
I am not sure how did you overclock it but I assume you force your cpu to run at its maximum frequency, for 2330m it is its base clock 2.20ghz. Do you experience lag in other games ? I think you are having thermal throttle. Monitor your temperatures with hwmonitor during gaming.
How do you know it's overheating, and monitor your temps, perhaps using HWMonitor, to identify which component is overheating.
Also you might want to blow out your computer (compressed air) if you haven't already.
If your GPU is not heating up, the fans will not turn on.
However I would assume it was heating at least a bit during your test. Download a hardware monitor and run that while running the test, so you can keep an eye on your temperatures.
You mentioned that you built a new PC, did you copy over the %AppData%\SpaceEngineers\ folder entirely from the old PC? If you did, then you may want to delete the ShaderCache/ShaderCache2 folders if present as they may be referencing the wrong hardware (Steam/SE will recreate them next launch), possibly the ProfileOptimization folder too.
echelonleft is pursuing the hardware side with you, but you may want to run something like HWMonitor to see if it highlights any issues, such as excessively high GPU or main ram utilisation (considering SE still has a few memory leaks).
Likely due to overheating, especially if it happens frequently while gaming.
Get HWMonitor and keep an eye on your idle temps, as well as temps in game. If they are getting dangerously high then you have your problem.
To fix it I would recommend doing a full clean on your system, get all the dust out that you can. Since this has happened since you built your pc it suggests that maybe the thermal compound on your CPU isn't giving you full coverage and limiting the heat transfer. If so you should get a tube of thermal compound, take off and clean your cooler, and then re apply it.
Depends really on how the other fans are setup, cable management, cleanliness of the case. But you will know if it's overheating.
Use hwmonitor to check your temperatures, make sure your cpu/gpu aren't throttling under load.
Worst thing that happens if your computer overheats is it shuts down. So it can't hurt to keep using it for now. Probably not a good idea to keep using it if it's shutting down though.

What video card and CPU do you have? If your video card has low memory (not your main DRAM, but VRAM), you could be losing a lot of time to transferring data to it, affecting both CPU and GPU. The game will also only make good usage of 4 physical CPUs - hyperthreading only provides marginal value - so if you have a high core CPU or hyperthreading, that may be why CPU usage is somewhat low. If you use TM:PE, it will tend to also reduce threading ability a bit, binding you more on single-threaded CPU over multi-threaded. If using that mod, you may want to try disabling "Realist Parking" or turning down the "Dynamic Lane Selection" and "Simulation Accuracy" options a bit to see if that helps.
Traffic manager and Real Time are extremely CPU intensive mods. What I learned from my previous post is that even if your CPU usage shows 20%, there’s a good chance that it maxed out all the cores and it’s overheating, resulting in stuttering and lag as your cpu forces itself to prevent overheating. Download HWMonitor and check what your cpu temperatures are at
Most likely it's thermal throttling because the tempurature is too high for the CPU.
CPUID HWmonitor (download the setup version lower down, not the pro), this should be able to tell you what tempurature your CPU is getting, if it's 100C the fan and heatsynk probably need the dust cleaned out of them.
Noctua fans have a great reputation, you can't go wrong with them (even if they are kinda ugly, sorry Noctua).
HWMonitor is a good program to have a look at your temps.
My guess would be you didn't set up the air-flow right or need to dust. Dust could have accumulated in 5 months and be messing with your temps. If you don't already have a way to check tempatures, download the free version of HWMonitor and compare idle temps to performance temps and see if they're reasonable.
Dust in the fan blowing onto your processor could cause freezing or jumping. Take the case outside and blow it out with cans of air.
A good way to verify whether your computer is overheating is to try HWMonitor: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
You can also check your computer event logs to see if they can indicate what the cause of a crash might be. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996634(v=exchg.65).aspx
You could try putting load on it, and monitor the temps with something like HWMonitor, if your Plex server is in one of those desk cubbies I'd move it out as that will certainly keep heat in and raise the temp inside the computer faster.
Have you checked your temperatures just in case? I recommend HWMoniter. But if your temps aren't getting into the dangerous levels I would say it's almost definitely your PSU.
It depends, you should get a tool called HWMonitor which can be found here: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
If after an hour or so running the streams your temperatures stay reasonably low (aim for around 60 max) then you should be safe.
As long as you aren't running your computer like that 24/7 for a week or two you wont have any issues.
Yeah, those are graphics artifacts. probably a hardware issue (ie, your graphics card is overheating or something). May also be a driver problem - update your graphics card drivers, and see if that helps.
It's also a good idea to get a utility that will let you see how hot things get, like HWMonitor(https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html)
It might be. I would monitor your temps using something like HWMONITOR https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html and if your temps get too high then put the duct back on, or if that's not feasible then install some case fans.
The 'Classic Version' is the free one. What temps are you getting on your CPU on idle (not doing anything)?
It could be from dust buildup on the CPU cooler, the fan not working, or the cooler might not be making good contact with the CPU (this will require taking the cooler off, cleaning off the old thermal paste and putting new thermal paste on).
The best tool for checking temps (and other stuff) is CPUID's HWMonitor: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
If you want to keep an eye on temps while gaming, MSI Afterburner (which uses RivaTuner Statistics Server) is practically the go-to program: https://www.msi.com/Landing/afterburner/graphics-cards
You can check your hardware's temperature when you play with running this software while playing in windowed mode. Keep an eye on all temperatures and more particularly on the GPU's. You don't want to let it go over 85°C, but as long as it stays at this temperature or lower, it's fine.
What PSU do you currently have?
Have you checked what tempuratures your getting under load for CPU, GPU and chipsets?
CPUID HWmonitor (Classic version is the free one)
See if anything is reading a high temperature on any of the sensors that are detected.
If they are high on idle (not doing anything) then that is most likely the issue, but you would need to leave the program open and then play a game so the CPU/GPU and everything is working and heats up. See what max temps your hitting.
Then tell me what happens when you start prime 95.
If all the threads ran 100% for half an hour and there was no issues then look at the cpu temps to see if your cpu is overheating (usually the thermal paste would be dry and need re applying it) my advice is to use MX-4 Arctic silver, you also could re apply the gpus thermal paste.
I use CPUID Hardware monitor (https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html)
And about the warranty, yes, my unit comes with one year of Legion Ultimate Support and 3 months of Accidental Damage Protection, but you can upgrade if you want
I definitely agree with the people here, you should install all the latest updates you can and of course if you have them.
Then download HWMonitor and while playing compare the temperature, if some temperatures go too high, it would be advisable to download a program like Msi Afterburner where you can create different profiles and adjust the fan speed where you can maintain the temperature of the graphic on normal scale. (If the problem is with the temperature on the graphics card).
What kind of temps - both charging & non-charging - are you seeing? You can use something like HWMonitor to get measure -
Are you using the stock charger? What battery % are you starting your charges at? Does it start to heat up right away?
I also think their is something wrong with your computer's graphics though no idea what is causing it. You might make sure that all drivers for your PC are installed and not just the graphics drivers. You can check under device manager that no component has a yellow exclamation mark ❗ against it.
Also you can use the software HWMonitor to check your PC components temperatures
Definitely sounds like overheating as the other guy said. Download hwmonitor and run cinebench and watch your temps, if your cpu is getting to hot, you need to remount the cpu cooler. If it isn't getting hot, the PSU might be faulty.
There may be better programs out there, but HWMonitor gives tons of info about all sorts of different things: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
For general information, I found this guide to be useful: https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/how-to-monitor-cpu-temp-temperature
Also, I originally wrote "Filtering and shader effects will increase performance," but I meant to write, "Filtering and shader effects will increase workload."
In case your issue is a general performance issue -
If you didn't test the PSU, how can you be so certain it doesn't have underlying signs of failure?
AC to DC power supplies have a 5% allowable variance to remain in spec. If any of those values are out of spec, the power supply should be replaced.
For 12V, those ranges are 11.4V and 12.6V. Anything lower than 11.4 or higher than 12.6 is out of spec.
WHEA error is a code for hardware error in memory that couldn't be fixed by system or hardware, it means that memory (ram or vram, depending on the test) is overclocked too much, timings are too low, too much voltage is pumped in it, it's overheating, or it is dying due to whatever reason.
OCCT is a burn/stability test, it can make your system boil even with decent cooling (especially with AVX instructions), but such levels of usage will rarely happen in realistic use scenarios. Many ryzens will heat up to 90-100c under heavy AVX stability tests with their box coolers, that's how it is.
If it never goes over 75c in normal use, you are safe. Install CPUID HWMonitor, it's free, and leave it running while using your pc, if max temps after hours of normal use are okay, then it's fine.
In general, if you have exams it's better to not mess with it, OCCT can easily kill problematic hardware. So be careful.
huh, you really shouldn't have any issues.
There is a recent(April) windows update that has been causing stutter issues which I noticed while playing Outer Worlds. If you have that update installed you should uninstall it
Go to settings and search graphics settings. In there select browse, navigate to the exe file of your game. That will be found where you installed steam or where you set your Library if you set it to a different location. Once you do that it should show up in the list below. Click on it, select options and set it to maximum performance. (not sure if this works for integrated cards since it's a recent change)
If you are using a laptop, only play when your laptop is plugged in. Playing on battery is not a good idea.
on the bottom right of the task bar, there should be a battery icon. click on it and make sure the slider is set to better performance.
Make sure battery saver is off.
If all of this doesn't help, then open your task manager and check RAM, CPU and GPU usage when not running anything and when running a game. Check for any process that's taking a lot of resources.
It's possible that your laptop is having heating issues which makes the CPU and integrated card throttle to prevent permanent damage. Use something like Hwmonitor to check your CPU and GPU temperature.
Update drivers or rollback drivers if they were recently updated and give issues
Disclaimer: im on mobile and that was a quick search. I believe the validity of that is spot on, please double check publisher is cpuid prior to install. 🤘🏻
Validate your game files.
Also, go to the game's properties settings and select the betas tab and set betas to NONE to make sure you have the most recent stable version.
Make sure you're running the current build of DirectX.
Your PC is certainly capable of running the game, but 7DTD is a good deal more CPU-intensive than most games, and the game is not well optimized yet.
Install Hardware Monitor to test for overheating that might be throttling your CPU.
Are you running MSI Afterburner or similar software to set a more aggressive fan curve?
If you've installed any mods, remove them and start a new game in Navezgane for testing purposes.
Try HWmonitor, then scroll down to your GPU's it should show "Powers" then show the value for W under each card.
I would just switch away from lolminer to T-Rex personally but that's just me.
Aida64 Extreme is probably the easiest. There's a free trial. Downloads | AIDA64 The first download link. You want to run the System Stability Test for about 20 minutes (check all the boxes) and see how high the CPU and GPU temperatures get.
There's also HWMonitor, which is totally free. No built-in stress/stability test though. More for general monitoring. HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID
Probably just a worn out battery that needs to be replaced. You can check battery health with HWMonitor. There will be a reading called 'Wear Level'. The percentage indicates how much of the battery has worn out / depleted.
Run User benchmark and post a link to the results.
Download and run CPUID HWmonitor as well and see what max temps your getting for CPU and GPU.
Seems like... a memory, heat, or power-related issue. Green lines is definitely display corruption, and I've seen them before when my graphics memory got too hot.
If you can, find a way to monitor your heat with something like HWMonitor
My suggestion is to start by running HW Monitor while playing the game.
Keep an eye on the voltages, in particular the 12V rail. If it drops much below 12V then that is the problem to focus on (but that does not automatically mean that you need a new PSU).
Check the CPU temperatures. In the CPU section you will have temperatures for the package as well as for each core. If they are going over 90C then that could be the problem.
It's worth having a look at the GPU temperature too. That one should be cooler and it's definitely a problem if it hits 90C.
Alright, first things first. Task manager hardware readings are inaccurate and should never be trusted. I personally use HWMontior
Yes, getting a 3060 would take some load off of your cpu, if you decoded your stream on your gpu and not your cpu.
Also den Lüfter bei der Temperatur dauerhaft zu hören ist ungewöhnlich. Es ist normal dass ein Lüfter mal kurz hochdreht wenn die CPU plötzlich stark belastet wird und sich aufheizt, aber permanent wäre das für mich nicht in Ordnung.
Was du probieren kannst:
Es kann dennoch sein, dass dies "by design" ist und du damit leben musst weil der Hersteller nicht fähig war ein gutes thermales Design zu schaffen.
Edit: mit HWMonitor kannst du alles auslesen, auch die SSD-Temperatur.
Google, you'll figure it out (it'll be different per mobo). But really, just use it as it arrives. Use something like this to see how well cooling is within your system. If temperatures remain low (sub 80c under load) then consider looking into OC if you feel like it. If you get the performance you want without OC, then just don't. Even if your build can OC and push out another 300mhz or whatever, the sound quality with increased fans may not be worth the performance tradeoff.
Then it would depend on how you are currently performing under heat, if you want to check, get one of these programs: HWiNFO64 or HWMonitor and keep it running on the back while you are playing, occasionally checking to see your temperatures (CPU Package and GPU Temperature), if you are over 80 ºC consistently on either, consider getting some fans for intake (I imagine the case came with one for exhaust, no?).
As you suggested checking your profile, you've posted over the last few weeks about your PC randomly rebooting and it not being connected to a game as it can do it before you even login.
Sounds like a deeper problem with your build, and there are so many potential causes (hardware, software, driver, over-clock), you'll need to do some digging and testing to find out what.
You can start by looking at the event log for times when it shuts down, (https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/78335-read-shutdown-logs-event-viewer-windows.html explains how) and try some simple hardware monitoring with an app like https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html to make sure things are running within expected parameters (you'll need to find out what those are for your particular hardware).
Can you install HWMonitor? it is a handy little app that gives you a lot of information in real time of temps and other interesting stuff. Stress load you PC in playing a demanding game and check the temps of the CPU.
If you can do it, thanks in advance for the feedback.
These are my settings when gaming with (somewhat) demanding games: https://imgur.com/a/e6HUkr9
I have the GF75 9SD-016.
I think it'd be good to know what the temperatures are and on what unit. I'd recommend downloading HWMonitor: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
It is a very lightweight tool to track the components temperatures. I use it to this day.
edit: You can run it before starting your game and keep it in the background while playing. When finish playing, maybe screenshot (using Snipping Tool or some other software) the values so we can see. And perhaps give more accurate help.
You can use this for more details:
Your RAM it’s very close to 50%. What happens if you open some applications more to go beyond 8 GB? It’s that the point that stutters?
I mentioned a great fan in this thread. Get HWMonitor and check your temps.
Here's that fan again. Brought my temps down a good 10C or more when under load.
I suggest you use HWMONITOR ( https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html ) because it has GPU Power output to monitor the undervolting. It could be better to use power meter, but this is okay.
oh lol. just saw it.
what you need to do when it arrives. install HWMonitor https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html and search for the GPU inside.
that's the only thing i can suggest
Few things you should check.
1st your CPU/GPU tempuratures. CPUID HWmonitor just to make sure it's not thermal throttling because of overheating.
Update your motherboard and graphics drivers.
Defrag your HDD. Try Auslogics Disk Defrag (note it get's detected as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) because it bundles programs with it, so pay attention when installing).
You do have a really low amount of RAM, this might be the main cause, as you might be using virtual memory.
EVGA has either a 10 or 12 year warranty on their P2 line, I can't remember. Yours will be good for a while though. If you want to see if your psu is still putting out acceptable voltage you can use a tool like HWMONITOR. Run it in the background while doing some tasks and look at the min/max voltage for the +12 volt, +5 volt, and +3.3 volt. There should be no more than a 10% variance in the +12 and no more than 5% on the +5/+3.3.
You said you only built this PC recently, so to rule out any build issues I'd run a simple benchmark (ex: https://www.userbenchmark.com/Software) and run a hardware monitor whilst playing some games (ex: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html) to monitor the temps and power levels.
I'd also check that SE is using the correct GPU (and not integrated graphics): In SE go to Options > Display > and check that the video adapter in the drop-down is actually your GPU.
You could try turning down the graphics settings to see if that stops the soft crash (which could point to a GPU issue).
And there are some current issues with AMD hardware (mostly with newer drivers) that Keen are looking at. For some AMD crashes turning down grass rendering to 0 works, for others it doesn't.
Without anything making it to the log it's going to be difficult to work out exactly where the problem is, so you may need to make a bug report at the official site https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/general and paste a copy of your log (or link it on pastebin.com) so they can investigate.
League runs on a potato, you shouldn't have any issues running it. If this is an older system I'd be more inclined to suspect overheating. Use a program like HWMonitor to watch temperatures while you play; if they're high you might have to replace the thermal paste under the CPU and/or GPU coolers. Blow out any dust inside the system as well - it's a good idea to do this regularly.
If your temps are fine, then I'd suspect software problems. Reinstalling either the games, the graphics driver, or Windows might fix it. Again if the system is several years old it's advisable to wipe the OS and start fresh - obviously backup your important data first though.
No problem, man! No, HWMonitor is an application that will monitor any temperature module in your pc, the motherboard (3 different, cant remember the names), CPU, GPU, and your drives. Should monitor anything that has a temperature module. Just install and run it and it should start monitoring.
In this case, no. Wiping and reloading the drive that you boot your OS from can often improve boot times and load times for programs.
I would cpuid hwmonitor. It's free, and it can show you the usage of each component in your computer while you're playing games, if you see one component hitting 100% regularly, that's your bottleneck.
Laptop model and specs would be helpful.
Sounds like you have a bottleneck of some kind, temperature is probably the most common reason on laptops.
UserBenchmark is a great way to quickly get an overview of your systems performance.
Use HWMonitor for example to record temperatures, i'm betting on you running into high CPU and/or GPU temps.
It will show you CPU/GPU temps, other system temps, clockspeeds, fan speeds, voltages, etc.
Pretty much shows you all the sensors info on a single screen.
The quality of that 650W is not really that great, it will work but meh.. It's low to mid tier in terms of quality.
650W is plenty for your system.
As for your temperature, you're looking at the CPU temps, which are honestly perfectly fine.
You want to download HWmonitor (pink setup or zip button) to check your whole system.
You're talking about a red flashing light on your motherboard. Mind to provide the model of that?
As for what the next course of action would be, perhaps a picture of your whole system can provide a bit more information. Perhaps your case is not great in terms of airflow. Perhaps it is extremely dusty which can hinder fans dramatically in terms of cooling. Perhaps your system is placed on the floor in a corner where not much cool air is available.
The term "tearing" usually means screen tearing and indicates the exact opposite problem - too high of an FPS for the screen's refresh rate. Lag usually means a problem with communication latency where you issue a command and it takes several seconds to actually happen, because the server has to validate it first but you have a high ping time when talking to the server. What you're describing though is an FPS drop, micro-stutter or micro-freeze if that helps Googling.
But on to the actual issue. If it's a regular occurrence (say every 10 minutes exactly) there could be a specific task that's scheduled to run, and that's eating up the CPU. Instead of just watching temperature, try watching the CPU's load. You can use Task Manager for that, or HardwareMonitor is a nice one that can show you both the load and temperature at the same time for all of your hardware that has sensors on them (CPU, GPU, SSD, etc).
It could also be a graphics driver problem. AMD has never had the best track record with graphics drivers, especially when it comes to League of Legends and the way it implements consuming the drivers. Are you up to date? If so, can you downgrade a patch or two and see if it still happens with that version of the drivers?
It's no problem!
I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume you only have one monitor, so (it's a pain in the butt, I know, been there done that) you have two options:
When you have your monitoring method go ahead and start up whatever game you like (doesn't really matter, but preferably the more taxing the better)
What you are gonna be looking for is:
CPU Clock Speed
GPU Clock Speeds (Should be a few regardless which way you monitor, but are looking for Memory and Graphics/3D)
Never used one of those, it's worth trying to run something like CPUID-Hwmonitor on it, this can hopefully read the thermal sensors inside it. The issue might be down to overheating, especially with these really compact devices, they can produce a lot of heat and cooling can be impaired depending on where you place it and if there is any dust buildup inside.
Keep in mind it may or may not be accurate, from what I understand the only real way to get a true reading is with some type of special hardware that you have to purchase.
Run the program and monitor your voltages both at idle and under a load like with a stress test program such as prime 95.
Yet you seem very capable.
I can understand your hesitation to open up your rig but believe me when I say its very hard nowdays to break something by tinkering with your computer.
Heres what you should do first:
It might even be your GPU or memory being the bottleneck; although I suspect your CPU just isn't cutting it as well. One thing to consider is that your systems work in synergy. Without recording and observing the results we simply cannot make a concrete recommendation to what upgrades are required to meet your goals
If he's upgraded that much you basically have a whole different computer at this point. Download HWMonitor to look at internal temperatures. If you see any thing over 80-90°C then its overheating
Download this and just leave it open in the background while you play games. It will show you your minimum and maximum values for temperature, usage, etc... that you hit while the program is running.
The biggest things that affect your cooling are the heatsinks (and the fans mounted directly on them), and those heatsinks getting cool fresh air. It sounds like you have plenty of airflow, so unless your heatsink/fans suck then you should be good. You can monitor your temps with hwmonitor.
60-80C under full load is totally fine, 85-90C is hot but still within spec, 95C+ is something you need to address.
Use HWmonitor to check the temps: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
And a 450Watt PSU is not very usefull info. I'd rather have a high quality 450Watt PSU than some crappy 650Watt PSU.
Get a monitoring program like HWMONITOR and check your CPU's temps while you render. The CPU should heat up to its max temps very quickly. If your CPU approaches 85 C within a few minutes (and it probably will), that's no bueno.
There's not much you can do with a laptop's cooling. The system is spatially restricted so airflow suffers. If you wanted to, you could open the computer and either replace the stock thermal compound with something better, or even delid the CPU and replace what's on the die itself (advanced, risky, not recommended).
I suppose your best bet would be to underclock or undervolt your CPU until you get comfortable long-term temps. If you let the CPU, MB, and VRM sit at 80 or 90 C for a long time, I think your motherboard will die and you won't be able to replace it without spending hundreds of dollars.
CPUID HWmonitor (scroll down to the setup for the free version) see what your CPU is doing.
Not sure that 40C under load is going to be right, or the 20c on idle, that would take some serious cooling to keep your CPU at those temperatures. Might be a false reading.
See what your CPU clock is doing, if it's being throttled then most likely your CPU is overheating.
Going to hop on now and grab my config settings for you. If you're able to at the moment though, would you mind downloading and running HWMonitor through a hunt (to find out your cpu and gpu utilizations)?
If I ask, it's probably because I think it's important ;)
Components overheating could lead to performance decrease as the component reduce their clockspeed to avoid harming themselves.
So that's something you'll have to check. Run a program like HWMonitor in the background while you play games, and come back to it afterwards to see what max temps were reached on each components. Though if you already have a program on your PC capable of doing that (the program with which you check the framerate for example) feel free to use that instead.
If the CPU or GPU (or both) get close or above 85°C, it's possible that heat is an issue in your situation.
Also in first intention, I would recommend a clean installation of the drivers of your graphics card.
Use DDU (in Windows Safe Mode ideally) to wipe away the current Nvidia drivers, and then download and install the latest drivers for your GPU
Yes. Go download CPUID HW Monitor and depending on what motherboard header your pump power is plugged in, it’ll read as a really high RPM.
My pump is plugged into SYS_FAN1 and using that software it’s reading as 2250ish RPM.
I would download something like https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html hardware monitor and check the temperatures. If you can post back with the results and maybe include and dxdiag that would be helpful.
Just incase you aren't sure if you type in dxdiag in start and press enter save that to a txt document and upload it to somewhere like pastebin and link here.
For the health 99% that is calculated by any issues found from the SMART reading on the hard drive.
I'm actually not sure what it means by Status OK (Always passing), I mostly pay attention to the overview page as it specifies any errors reported from the hard drive that you need to know but it sounds like the hard drive is worn out in general as the computer is loading stuff really slow.
For the transfer error count to I meant the 199 Ultra ATA CRC error count on that second image you linked. It is explained in more detail here:
There are other things I recommend checking such as the temperature of your graphics card and CPU if you haven't already, you can use a program called HWMonitor which you can download here for that. If they are running too hot (90°C+) they will also throttle and slow down your computer.
1 Weak sector is actually really minor and impressive for a hard drive that has been powered on for a total of 5 years or more, it could really be just the operating system needing a fresh install.
I think the hard drive is still okay to use but definitely not as your main drive as it's gone well past its use by what I would be comfortable with.
Most likely problem is overheating.
Install and run HWMonitor, then use the PC normally for a while. Run a game Windowed so you can continue to see HWMonitor running. If temperatures for CPU get above 80C, you're pushing it.
When's the last time you blew the dust out of it?
Try stresstesting it with a benchmark program and running HWMonitor. Should give you a lot more data, I think. Maybe it will help point towards what specifically is wrong on the card (ie if any particular of the 9 heatsensors are overheating besides the GPU). How old is the card?
