    [SOLVED] Every game runs at 12%~ CPU usage and 100% GPU usage - - - how do i fix this ?

    I just can't get the issue. I updated the BIOS and the GPU/CPU. I even reinstalled Windows a few times to see if it fixes the issues but that didn't help, It could be thermal throttling but since I'm not some genius i thought maybe somebody could fix my issue ?

    Question Cooler for Ryzen 5 7600x

    There not many options at my location, but I was wondering if the ID SE-226-XT would be fine for the R5 7600x? Other option could be the Be Quiet Shadow Rock 3 or Dark Rock Slim for a few dollars more, but then other cooler are twice as much and not worth the price in my opinion

    [SOLVED] Why my GTX 1080 Ti runs hot under no load ?

    I just bought a used 1080Ti and noticed under full load it was reaching temperatures of high 70s using the normal fan curve, so I created a more aggressive one with the fans at about 75% to keep it to low 70s. That's fine but the fans are pretty loud at this level. To test the heat dissipation...

    [SOLVED] Audio crackling with high load (possibly temperature related?)

    My PC has had this issue for a long time (maybe since I built it) but I haven't bothered much to fix it because it is controllable and only happens under high loads.
