    Monitors Standby Timeout Limited to 30minutes or less.


    The issue I have is my Monitor Standby period is limited to 30mins max. If I set it to a higher timeout period it will just keep running my screensaver perpetually....monitors do not enter standby. Any timeout for standby 30minutes or less and this issue is not present. Monitors will enter standby ok when they should.


    My system specs are:

    Computer type: PC/Desktop
    System Manufacturer/Model Number: MSI
    OS: Windows10-64bit, Version 2004...OS build 19041.630
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core AM4 Processor
    Motherboard: MSI PRESTIGE X570 CREATION MOBO
    Memory: G.Skill RAM, F4-3600C16D-32GTZR, 32GB
    Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Duke OC 11GB
    Monitors are: Samsung 32inch Odyssey G7 & Dell UltraSharp U2713H 27 Inch

    Thanks

    :)

    Monitors don't turn on after lock screen timeout

    I have an ASUS M32 desktop (not all in one, specs below) with a dual monitor setup. I just bought the computer 2 days ago and it came with Windows 8.1. I decided to switch to Windows 10 so I did the update via download and install (meaning I did not create
    disks). Since the update when the monitors go into standby (not the PC itself) after I lock the PC and the timeout kicks in, I can wake the monitors but all I see is a blank grey screen. No matter how many buttons I press I cannot get the monitors to show
    anything. I have updated all drivers and I can't figure why this would happen because it doesn't when waking up from the PC in standby mode. I know most are going to say disable the monitors from going into standby but I shouldn't have to do that with a brand
    new computer. Any suggestions?

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
