    Log Brickless B550 mini-ITX Ryzen5-4650G

    Now I have two (1TB Samsung 970 EVO+ SSD V-NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 3.0/Gen3) drives. I moved my Libraries (Documents, Pictures, Music) to the second/backup drive. Now the only thing that resides on Drive C: is Windows 10 OS and the software/Apps that I have installed. I used the Disk Cleanup...

    Power Supply Failed Delta DPS-500AB-5B questions

    My (Delta DPS-350AB-12 A 350W) 80 Plus Silver PSU has a Delta Fan. Also, the PSU components are so dense that it is difficult to see the main PCB/printed circuit board. Here's a thread-post-link to a picture of the Delta fan. eta; I prefer to use my credit card chargeback rights to clawback the...

    Thanks, I appreciate the work being done with the Meanwell 120w AC/DC PSU. Yep, that was one of the first PSUs that I looked at. But I had some issues for this specific build: It requires additional "pico PSU" parts to connect to the motherboard. The pico PSU may not fit some case/motherboard...

    No I haven't yet looked into allocation of memory to GPU. I will add that to my list. With this build I went to a single mass storage/NVMe decice. Usually I build with two devices and limit the size of C: to Windows 10-only and use Disk Cleanup to keep it small. Then I use the builtin Windows...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    Back from documenting/logging my build while the details were still fresh. I am less busy now and finding time to get back to these memory timing issues. Thanks for your patience and help. After BIOS (Load Optimized Defaults) to get back to default settings; Speed/Read/Write/Total = (DEFAULT =...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    Scrap that idea!! It takes too long and my results on the second test did vary. Argh, I lost the 2nd test results, doesn't matter. Here's what I think might work better. You can select which MemTest86 tests to run. I selected tests 0-6 for (7 tests total) and I changed the number of passes from...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    MemTest86 runs tests 0 through 10 plus test-12 Hammer Test. It defaults to 4 passes of those tests but I was able to modify the number of passes to 1. The total time for one pass was 43:55/43 minutes and 55 seconds. Unless the tests are somehow random, I should be able to run another pass and...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    I have MemTest86 on a bootable flash drive. I am thinking of letting MemTest86 run through one cycle of the ten or twelve different memory tests and check to see how long it takes to complete one cycle of tests. If I recall correctly it provides the total time it took to run the tests. I will...

    Advice K39 Case-Mod Fan Bracket Cooling Kit mounted in PCI Slot for case exhaust fan(s)?

    I finally got around to testing the K39 Case Exhaust Fan mounted in the empty Graphics Card space. My fan bracket never did arrive from Aliexpress so I disputed that $3.56 charge and made my own bracket from cable ties wrapped around the unused Black Ridge fan. The fan will fit on the inside of...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    I got faster, (44GB/s compared to your 39GB/s). But I am still skeptical about our memory-read tests being an apples-to-apples comparison because the test is on top of whatever else our systems are running. For example, I could also be running Firefox with 50 Tabs opened that are consuming...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    Hmmmm; I have done a lot of head-scratching over our different results from the Ryzen DRAM Calculator 1.7.3/MEMbench results: RAM size (upper left) says 12000 and I have 2x8GB sticks = 16GB?? Version (bottom right) says this is a beta version (MEMbench 0.8 beta 4) 😮 If you hover over MEMbench...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    No ECC Errors logged, see below. Timings (16, 16, 17, 18, 38, 66) Bios DRAM-VOLTAGE of (1.35 = HWiNFO 1.38) @3266MHz. Infinity Fabric clock/FCLK set to Auto to equal MCLK @2x1633=3266 MHz (see HWinfo below). DRAM Calculator/MEMbench still running slower than yours @(read=28, write=24...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    Made a USB Boot Drive from the PassMark MemTest86 v8.4 Free, and booted that to test memory. I am deep into the second of four passes with Zero Errors (and typing on her InWin Chopin) so I expect the other lengthy passes will also succeed with Zero Errors. A couple of oddities about GigaByte...

    Memory Help please, with memory timings for VLP-RAM (ADATA PC DDR4 2666MHz)

    Running Timings (16, 16, 17, 18, 38, 66) 1.38v-DRAM-VOLTAGE @3266MHz. Not quite sure what is best to test the memory, I will do some more reading.
