I think a decent number of people do not utilize XMP profiles for their ram. If you have bought high performance ram for your PC, but never enabled XMP profile, then you are likely not utilizing your expensive ram to its full capabilities. XMP profile essentially "overclocks" your ram to higher frequencies. However, you do not need to mess with voltages, you just simply need to enable it in your bios. Read more about it here.
To do this:
Find out what memory frequency and timing your ram is rated for. If you forgot what ram you bought or is not sure, download the free program CPU-Z. Open CPU-Z and go to "SPD" tab. Select the Slot your ram is installed in. Look at the Part Number. For example this is mine: Ram Part number
Google your Part Number and click on the link from your manufacturer (mine is G.Skill). See Example
Note your ram's memory speed and timings. My speeds are 3600MHz, and timings are CL 16-16-16-36.
With this information, reboot your PC into your BIOS (restart PC, mash DEL or F12)
Go to advanced mode and find out where your XMP profile option is located
Enable the profile and select whatever you had in Step 3
Basically, Tarkov gun sounds are WAY too loud and they will definitely permanently damage your hearings and give you tinnitius. What I have learned from /u/Maxisquillion is to compress the gun sounds to more comfortable levels using these three things:
Click Open panels and use Maxiquillion's settings as a baseline
The only thing you should really adjust is the "Threshold." The higher this is, the more louder sounds will get through
IMPORTANT NOTE* for experienced players, you will have to get used to the gun sounds again as well as how they sound in the distance. You will probably die a few times but this is worth it to protect your hearing!!!
