  1. Damn, nice setup to cover you for the next 4 years! Loving the dual loop, something I'd have to do if going for mGPUs (which I'm not). Where is the fillport, and is your left res now straight? Btw, I don't have the case beside me, heat coming out would be enough to make you sweat.

  6. Corsair, a world leader in enthusiast memory, high-performance gaming hardware and PC components, today announced its extensive compatibility for the groundbreaking new range of AMD Ryzen processors and the AM4 platform. With a completely new CPU architecture, chipset and CPU socket, AMD Ryzen demands the latest in performance PC hardware. With a wide range of compatible DDR4 memory, liquid CPU coolers and PSUs, CORSAIR has everything enthusiasts need to make AMD Ryzen CPUs run to the full extent of their abilities. “CORSAIR is uniquely positioned for the launch of AMD Ryzen, with an outstanding range of not just high performance DDR4 memory, but liquid CPU cooling and power supplies as well,” said Travis Kirsch Director, Product Management, Client at AMD. “CORSAIR offers everything system builders need to get the absolute best performance from AMD Ryzen and the new AM4 platform.” AMD Ryzen CPUs require the latest DDR4 memory and CORSAIR has a growing range of AMD Ryzen qualified high-performance DDR4 memory, with more kits being certified for Ryzen processors every day. Launching with Vengeance LPX 16GB, 32GB and 64GB kits running at 2,133MHz and 2,400MHz, and Dominator Platinum 16GB running at 3,000MHz, CORSAIR has the DDR4 memory to match your choice of AMD Ryzen build. Check http://www.corsair.com/ryzen for a full up-to-date list. AMD Ryzen processors dynamically adjust and optimize performance based on power and temperature conditions; lower temperatures mean higher clock speeds and better benchmarks. With the addition of a CORSAIR Hydro Series liquid CPU cooler, you’re able to cool Ryzen processors to temperatures substantially lower than when using standard air cooling, allowing for higher clock speeds, better performance and easier overclocking. AMD Ryzen processors also bring an entirely new CPU socket, AM4, and the CORSAIR Hydro Series H60, H110i and H100i are ready right out of the box to deliver superior liquid CPU cooling to socket AM4 Ryzen CPUs. The rest of the CORSAIR Hydro Series range of coolers are also fully compatible with AMD Ryzen and AM4 via an additional mounting bracket. CORSAIR is proud to announce that, for a limited time, an AM4 bracket will be supplied, upon request, to all qualifying Hydro Series owners free of charge, including shipping to EU, USA and select other countries. Brackets start shipping on March 2nd, so check http://www.corsair.com/ryzen for full details. What’s the use of performance without the power to supply it? CORSAIR PSUs have been trusted by PC enthusiasts for over a decade, winning hundreds of industry and reviewer awards thanks to a complete commitment to quality, reliable and performance. Now that legacy comes to AMD Ryzen, with every CORSAIR PSU fully compatible with all new AMD X370, B350 and X320 chipset motherboards. Equip the legendary 80-PLUS Titanium AX1500i, the low-noise 80-PLUS GOLD RMx series, or the dependable 80-PLUS Bronze CX series to complete your Ryzen system. “We’re phenomenally excited about AMD Ryzen CPUs and the new AMD platform” said Aaron Neal, Senior Manager of DIY product Marketing at CORSAIR. “With extensive DDR4, Hydro Cooler and PSU support across our entire range, enthusiasts can be sure that CORSAIR has everything they need to build the perfect Ryzen system”.

  8. Hi RajesgRD, based upon the M335 (Tonga, released June 2015) using GDDR3 and 1070MHz clock it's certainly a 2GB GPU as you quickly gathered, I doubt the information within AMD CCC is wrong but worth checking with GPU-Z (post to download link) than relying on one tool alone as that is more than good enough. The M335 is noted by AMD to go "up to" 4GB but I found that 2GB M335 was more common at low-end but ofc manufacturers have flexibility depending on their range - exact specifications MUST be given and be accurate at the time it's publicly available to avoid undue stress . (email them + keep everything written down of what you are doing, never use the phone, to keep the complaint official) Therefore as it features only 2GB VRAM it doesn't fit your needs and depending on the time you purchased this item which is normally 30-days, you are entitled to full refund or free replacement (factory sealed and not a refurbished unit) until you are satisfied. At no point (depending on your consumer rights in your region but noted you are from UK same as me) should you normally be expected to return the item at your costs, it's up to them to pick it up unless you are happy to be refunded P&P costs. As you are returning the item, the period for returns is paused and can be return again until they rectify their mistake otherwise once the normal period for returns is over you lose your right to full refund/replacement and likely will only receive a refurbished unit. The onus is on them. Again, this depends on your regional laws but most of this applies nonetheless. On the Intel website (direct link) they do note the Inspiron 17 5000 features 4GB VRAM: "MD Radeon R5 M335 4GB DDR3". Amazon also list (link #1 / link #2) the 4GB M335, For reference here's the Videocardz database entry: https://videocardz.net/amd-radeon-r5-m335/ Since you mention it was sold promising 4GB video memory then iGPU doesn't count as you can only pair with dedicated GPU if it was an AMD APU, in any case pairing them brings very little gains to performance.

    Welcome to the forum 1stCowGirl! As standard the driver and Physx are the only components I install. It's the installation file accessing those URLs no matter what you do or do not install. As I did, use your firewall to block this even though it appears harmless but unnecessary on the part of Nvidia, same goes for Nvidia's telemetry (meant for diagnosing bugs but monitoring nonetheless) once you have installed selected components.
