Should I upgrade my gpu or cpu first? Currently running a i5 3570k with a 1050 2gb. My ti died a year ago and I had that one as a back up in my aunt's pc.I am thinking of going wither 3600 or 10400f but I heard the b550 chip has USB port issues.
Bestbuy should do an online GPU drop soon
>>83822968Upgrade both, stop being poor
>>83822983And Cheng's bots are all geared up.
about to buy me a LG 27GL850-B as my main monitor and maybe a ViewSonic XG2405 as a second monitor. any reason why I shouldn't go with either of these?>"why are you mixing 1440p and 1080p?" cuz budget reason, plus im pretty much just testing out 1440p so not sure if ill actually like it or not. plus I'd like something smaller as the second monitor
I snagged one of the 6600's from the shuffle today. Not what I really wanted but considering I'm upgrading from a fucking 680 and paid "only" 400 I'm happy enough. Have had incredibly shit luck finding cards. Even though it's clearly the weakest card of this generation it's a nuclear reactor for most games I care about but now I can play new stuff too now I guess. What do you all think these will sell for in 3-6 months if I can ever get a non scalped to the goddamn moon 3080 or 6800XT (maybe I'll wait til next gen to try for a high end card)? Looking at prices for current cards, it appears I could use it to game for a while and still come out ahead if current conditions hold and it sadly looks like there's no end in sight for that. I can't know if all these listings are actually selling without watching it further but given what I hear I would be surprised if they weren't.
>>83823192I kind of regret not getting in on that, looked like they were selling at or close to MSRP. I've been trying to find a 6900XT or 6800XT at a fair price, but with little luck. I'm still running an ancient HD7970 that seems to be dieing, I think using a heat gun on it to reflow the BGA solder might help, but I don't want to try that until I get a GPU to replace it.
so how do newegg shuffle wrok? I know its a lottery but what, only like one lucky customers gets to buy them or a select 100 or something
>being a shuffle beta>Not being a buys at 3x msrp chad
I bought a "cheap" gaming monitor a few months back and I like it. 144Hz, IPS has a bunch of bells and whistles.. but the IPS glow is horrendous. Black looks silvery and it starts to shift as soon as I move slightly off center. Is there anything I can do settings-wise to mitigate this or should I just be looking for a new monitor? For reference the monitor is Asus VG249Q
It's Oct 2021 and you still can't find an MSRP GPU anywhere. Why?
>>83823641The MSRP does not reflect the gpu's ability to print money
>>83823641chinks and jews wont allow it

just bought a 5600X to upgrade from my 2700X, any advice on where to get good gpus for cheap or near msrp?
>>83823892Ah shit thats when my work shift starts. Maybe I can find one on my day off. Pray for me.
>>83823907>get good gpus for cheap or near msrp?
>>83823907I give discounts on my retired mining GPUs to gaymers who suck cock
>>83823892does that also apply to Best Buy? or do they only stock them in waves? only want the Founders Edition of the 3070 and doesnt seem like its being sold anywhere else online
>>83823966I haven’t bought from best buy. i chave bought from B&H, Newegg, Amazon, and AMD. Also a few other small retailers i won’t name here because they are trade secrets for fellow miners.
Is 4k worth it at 28 inches and 144Hz? My GPU is a RX 6900

Anyone knows what those kernel error means? I just built a PC with a ryzen 5950x and some corsair 3600mhz memory. It runs fine, but for some reason I get those error here and there and the benchmark I ran is on the low side. Is this a memory problem or a CPU one or something else?Thanks
>>83824496nope works fine on my PC
>>83823177guess my choices are good then
>>83823177my advice is to stay away from-nanoIPS, due to shitty contrast (compared to other IPS)-very wide gamus (very rare to have proper sRGB clamp, so everything looks super saturated)-"HDR" monitors (only OLED and miniLED are real HDR, everything else is just marketing)look at the benq ex2780q and the gigabyte g27q (not the g27qc, the qc is a VA panel)try to stay with cheap panels.also i would suggest 4k/60 for the second monitor, with scaling it will make text look awesome, see picrel
>>83824467Can someone pl help with this
>>83823192Just get it, if you change your mind you could sell it for profit in a month. Or just mine on it. Does 30mhs for 50 watts.

I'm new to SSDs. What type of programs do I want to keep in the SSD? I know some games with loading times (MH W) benefit from them, but what about emulators like the android or nintendo switch ones?Will my porn benefit from SSDs?
>>83825508Stop being a little bitch and just install steam you cuck
>>83824724It's not particularly important you put it back unless you move your computer regularly: your GPU may get loose without it, maybe.On the other side, it *shouldn't* take long to dissassemble your computer and put that piece back where it belongs, so maybe you should spend the 5-10 minutes and do it.
>>83825514>What type of programs do I want to keep in the SSD?all of them. keep everything you normally use on the SSD, just use HDDs for storage.>Will my porn benefit from SSDs?download cache, temp torrent folder/cache is nice, scrubbing through a 10GB jav is faster
>>83826157If you have bulk storage you'd have to be a brainlet to not just buy a big hdd
I am reading through the psu links but is there a /pcbg/ approved psu similar to how people recommend 5600x/3060 for cpu/gpu?
>>83826157I don't feel like my Western Digital Black HDD is "slow". Is any NVME SSD gonna "blow my mind"?I'll recycle the HDD for storage. My porn is almost half of my storage, but I may play for gaymes so I'll get a cheap ADATA falcon 1TB SSD.
>>83826330Stop being a coombrain, your life will improve
>>83826330first ssd? then yeah it'll be nice but you get use to it quick.sata3->NVME? noticeable but not a huge difference in day to day.always go nvme if you have a slot for it tho, the price is nearly the same.
Are AIO coolers just a meme?How long are they supposed to last?I bought a corsair h200i a few years back for an excessive build I made. After a few months there was a chirping coming from the unit. I suppose it was air bubbles? Either way, switched to a HSF instead but I'm tempted to try out the NZXT Z73.Thoughts, suggestions, personal experiences?
>>83826638did you place the pump at the top like an idiot?
What do I need to upgrade on my pc?My specs: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core, 8.0 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030, Motherboard: TUF b450-plus gaming, Monitor: BENQ GW2470H I play minecraft a lot :), but I wanna be able to play some newer games. I don't need 4k ultra graphic etc. Also I don't know shit about pc building so please dont be angry. Region- EU Budget - 1k
>>83826663Front side, I've got a yuge case.
>>83826680You need to upgrade everything, budget of 2k min
>>83826638not a meme, they are top of the line cooling, aside from custom loop watercooling5-6 year warranty, replace before it endsbuy the arctic liquid freezer, largest one that fits the top of your case. set it to exhaust. remove the filter at the top of your case, its not necessary for exhausting.
>>83826703No was the pump the highest point in the loop? You do know what part is the pump right?
>>83826714What should I upgrade first?
>>83826734All of it
>left PC on last night>get out of bed and go to PC>black screen>tap a few keys and it comes out of sleep mode or whatever it was>all black desktop>super low resolution >Activate Windows prompt>secondary monitor isn't active at allUh, guys? The fuck is going on?
>>83826680you will not be able to do a full upgrade for your budget, sorryget a 11400f, a b560 mobo, some 3600mhz cl16 ram and a nvme ssd (1tb or more)gpus are currently fucked, prices are beyond insane, you will have to wait.for minecraft, you want nvidia gpu, amd seriously underperforms in it (due to crappy opengl support in windows amd drivers)maybe check ebay, perhaps you can score some gtx 700/800 series card for 100euro or socheck the benchmarks to be sure it will outperform your 1030
>>83826743I dont have that much money to spend on my pc, do I really need to upgrade everything rn?
>>83826727Hmm, the section where the hoses connect to the radiator? That was at the highest point. I was mostly copying what I'd seen in other builds.
>>83826771Yes, get more money
>>83826703https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbGomv195sk>>83826680>>83826771>do I really need to upgrade everything rn?noyou could make due with a gpu upgrade, maybe ram if needed, but the gpu market is fucked. read the op and search up some of those cards vs your 1030
>>83826833So you think If I got like the rtx 3060 and upgraded to 16 ram, it would help me alot?
>>83824175You can tell this is the same coping poorfag who keeps saying the electronics market will enter a great depression once ETH goes PoS.
>>83826680>GT 1030What kind of thought process goes through people's minds when they see a card that performs equal or worse than a 2008 GPU and say "yeah, this is a nice investment."
Is the 5600g worth it in case current gpu dies and have to coast through without a dedicated one for a while?the cpu side seems close to the specs of the recommended 5600 so it should be a safe pick right?
>>83826833Thanks, taking a look at the video.
>>83826865your r5 1600 may bottleneck that GPU but, yes it'll be a huge upgrade for any GPU bound workload.your board also supports the 3000 series AMD cpus so that's also an upgrade path you can take if need be.look into a 1440p 144hz panel too if you go with a card that powerful.
>>83827035Ok.. So can I upgrade in this order? 1)Gpu with ram2)3000 series AMD cpu (would AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT be good?)3) MonitorThanks for helping me btw
>>83827243yeah but why that cpu? might as well step up to a 3900X
>>83827303I did just a quick google search and I can get the 3800XT for around 370 usd in local eshop, but the 3900X is like 600 usd. Is it worth it?
Going to buy a new mobo, most likely B550 in preparation for the 3D ryzen. I've been doing bit googling and apparently MSI B550 A-pro is a good choice.any other canditates?
>>83827392there is not much point in going for an 8core variant. if you only care for gaming or keeping the budget low, a 6 core will do just fine. if you actually need multicore perf for productivity, you will be better of investing the extra $ to get the 12 core.
>>83827243I'd personally torture myself and go in this order; GPU, monitor, ram (match current stick(s) for 16GB or just go 8GB x 2, 3200mhz), CPU. just to weed out the bottlenecks without wasting cash for no reason.btw you may need to upgrade bios if you haven't already. https://www.asus.com/Motherboards-Components/Motherboards/TUF-Gaming/TUF-B450-PLUS-GAMING/HelpDesk_BIOS/
>>83827584ok, but why the monitor second? Isnt it the last thing to upgrade? Since I can play with lower hz but working game. If I get good monitor and the game wont even start, then the monitor is useless for me
>>83827562So something like AMD Ryzen 5 5600X would be good for gaming?
RTX 3080 + 5900xorRTX 3080 TI + 5800X?
>>83827474MSI X470 Gaming Pro Max or MSI B450 Pro A MaxThe B550 chipset has too many unresolved bugs. I already swapped my B550 for an X470 and I am much happier
>>83827708yea, its the current top of the line for gaming (aside from the more expensive 5800x/5900x/5950x)you can do slightly better in value for money with the 11400 from intelif you're the anon with the 1600/450 system, stick with amd though, the savings on the cpu won't be significant if you also have to change mobo.
>>83827758that completely depends on the prices for the GPUs. if the 3080ti is within say $200 of the 3080, i'd say its worth it.
>>83827821thank you, can you also help me explain this>>83827680
>>838277583090 + 5600XOr 5600X + 3080/3080 ti and spend the rest on something else
>>83827680>If I get good monitor and the game wont even startthat's not how that works. even if you're averaging just 100FPS on a 144hz panel it'll still be a lot smoother and enjoyable than being capped at 60fpsif you go with something as powerful as a 3060 you may as well lean on its poweroh btw I was wrong, your board can take the 5000 series cpus. oops
>>83827848not sure what you don't understand?the order that anon proposes is kinda subjective. personally, i'd go cpu, ram, *wait for gpu prices to improve*, gpu, monitoror maybe cpu, ram, used gtx 970, monitoras for the bios update, you may need to install a newer cpu (definitely will need it for a 5600x, maybe for a 3600x too, i dunno)
Why does my cpu hit 115c when I'm playing Virtamate? Low 30s when Idle, 80s while gaming. How the he'll does it even break 110c? 11600k and MSI Coreliquid 240r here.
hey niggers, im looking for a raid card that holds 4+ nvme drives, is there such a thing, and if so i want a card that holds as many as possible, please recommend immediately because i want to raid a bunch together and get the fastest drive speeds possible
>>83827891I suggested that order considering his current gpu, a 1030. a newer cpu won't make that card preform any better.my GTX 970 is the bottleneck in my R7 1700 system as long as I'm not playing some ancient single threaded title.
>>83827949What software are you using to track temps?What temp is your GPU hitting?
I'm thinking about upgrading my CPU but I'm still kinda new to the PC building thing. Here's my buildhttps://pcpartpicker.com/list/Pc4Lt8What is the best CPU I can get for this build that doesn't have me replacing a whole bunch of parts?
>>83828129>https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Pc4Lt8you can put a 5000 series chip in there, after a bios update. recommend the 5600x for gaming, 5900x for productivity/multicore stuff
>>83827863>3090 + 5600xIs this actually a good combo? Because that's genuinely within the same price range.
>>83828170Doesn't seem like that much of an upgrade given I've already got a R5. How much more power am I looking at here? I'm kind of tarded when it comes to numbers and shit for PC building. Alternatively, what would I be looking at having to do if I'd want to upgrade to a better CPU altogether? Replacing the Mobo, case, and maybe PSU?
>>83828193yea, its a good combo. consider also that 3090s are not LHR, so you can mine back some of the price difference from the 3080(ti)
>>83828207I'm not really planning to mine. I'm a /v/irgin
>>83828204ok so, you have a 450 mobo. that can take the current 5000 series chips, so no point upgrading that.your 2600 is slower than the 3600, which is slower than the 5600x.you can upgrade to more cores, but if you are only gaming, it won't make a noticable difference.so, imo, 5600x for gaming. unless you are doing productivity stuff that needs multicore perf, in which case go up to the 5900x
>>83828252Alright I'll look into a 5600x then, thanks anon.I've always been afraid of updating my Bios, though. I hear horror stories sometimes, but I think I'll go to /sqg/ to ask that. I also got a MasterCooler over Christmas I haven't installed so maybe it's a good time to do that with a new chip.
I orderd an Asus B360M-E Gaming and 2x 16gb GSkill Ripjaws V 3200mhz and just noticed 8th gen Intel CPU's only supporting up to 2666mhz RAM speeds. Will the 3200mhz sticks work at 2666mhz or won't they work at all? The motherboard isn't listed at the GSkill compatibility list for the Ripjaws V 3200mhz but I can't seem to find out if this means it won't boot at all or if they will be clocked down
>>83822908>Ryzen 5000 3D Cache refresh Q1 2022when zen 4?
>>83828234Just turn on Nicehash whenever you are not gaming, don't have to setup a rig or anything
>>83828431Obviously they'll be underclocked. The BIOS will set them at the maximum the CPU can run them automatically. If not, you can do it yourself.
>>83828234would it help convince you if i told you that every extra gpu mining increased difficulty, making all the existing ones slightly less profitable?don't mine for the money anon. mine to fuck the miners out of some profit!
>>83828121Cpu ID, im not checking in bios. The GPU is fine, barely goes over 80. Thing is that it used to be fine but this just started after I installed a couple of hardrives. Maybe I knocked something.
What are some good speakers for $60 or less?I'm using Logitech S120 speakers and they're complete shit.I don't need anything amazing, just speakers that are loud.
>>83828610>>83828585Guess it's time to inflate the market in small increments. Thanks anons
>>83828652de nada.remember to check your VRAM temps with HWinfo, if your thermal pads are crappy, mining will show it
Do you guys think a $350 ES/QC/QHUC E5-2699-V4 Xeon be a good gamble?Would be paired with a chink X99 board. An official version of the CPU is ~$1000.
I installed my new RX6600 and overall it works well. However when I play Diablo II Remastered, fog effects- tear, I suppose? Like the fog has horizontal and vertical gaps in it. I can try to take a picture of it but it's transient.Is there a way to fix this? Is it just an AMD thing or an AMD on Linux thing? My previous card was a 1060 3GB and it never had this problem (though it did have the problem of having too little VRAM for the game).
>>83828786well, you could sell the 6600 and get a nvidia card...otherwise, submit a bug report to amd and blizzard and hope for the best
>>83828786Got an example.
>>83827949Could be incorrect sensor reading. If it were actually that high, the CPU would throttle. Are you getting the full boost clocks of the CPU?>>83827758If you're just gaming, the 5900X is out of the question anyway. Real choice is between the 3080 and the Ti. IMO pricing dictates that. Obviously there's maybe 10% difference in performance>>83827680You need to look up variable refresh rate and Freesync>>83827474Don't buy anything until the new CPUs come out. You'll need a board that has an updated BIOS available for download if you're planning to buy on launch. And of course you'll need a board with CPU-less BIOS flash if you don't have another supported Ryzen CPU. Not sure if the A-Pro has that, haven't checked.>>83826942The 5600G is about on par with the 10400, so whichever is cheaper if you don't care about the graphics performance>>83826680Right now your biggest limitation is your graphics card. Eventually you can upgrade all the main components of your setup including monitor, but for now you can just pick up something like a 1070 (and an SSD if you don't have one)>>83826330Right now you just buy a 1TB NVMe for OS and software (including actively used games). HDDs are for archival storage
>>83828890Mm. I'm used to problems being configuration errors so I hoped it might be fixable. If it's a known thing with AMD cards then I guess I'll just have to live with it.
>>83828204>Doesn't seem like that much of an upgrade given I've already got a R5.Huge difference in gaming between a 2600 and a 5600X
>>83829139I will take your word for it. how well does it do with RTX?
>>83829165Well. As noted it's one of the best gaming CPUs
>>83829188How do I go about the BIOS thing? Or should I just wait until I have it in my hands to worry about that?
>>83828893>the 5900x is out of the question anywayOut of curiosity, why do you say that? It's perfectly within budget when combined with a standard 3080. Or do you mean it's unattainable in general due to shortages?
>>83829193You likely won't need to worry about it as most mobos shipping these days are updated.But worst comes to worst I think most mobos today come with cpu-less bios update systems.
>>83829234Yeah I don't get why people well off to do anything with building a PC today are squeemish about spending the extra few hundred for a massive CPU upgrade.
>>83829244I have a MSI B450 TOMAHAWK. Does that work out of the box? I remember not having to fuck with BIOS whenever I installed the thing. It kinda just worked.
Should I buy a 1080, 144Hz monitor?Just thinking about futureproofing.It'd be great for my current hardware - but what about future upgrades?If I were to get an RTX GPU, is DLSS any good at 1080p (upscaling from 720p, 900p?), or is too low a resolution to work with?
>>83829281>Should I buy a 1080, 144Hz monitor?>Just thinking about futureproofing.no, go 1440p/144hz. better yet, go 4k/144hz if its in your budget, the m28u goes for 700-800 shekels nowadays.>is DLSS any good at 1080p (upscaling from 720p, 900p?)any 3000 series gpu will chew through 1080p with no need of dlss.and ya, it is too low a res for it to work
>>83829270Oh I see I looked up and saw you're upgrading your already existing mobo. If you never updated the BIOS before 100% it's outdated and you should do it before you get the new CPU.https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-TOMAHAWK#down-biosDon't know why they skipped all their old versions that supported Ryzen 5000 series and only have the 7C02v1H6(Beta version)
>>83829359I'm not upgrading my tomohawk. should I still get these BIOS? I built my PC roughly 4 years ago.
>>83822908why do asus make the only good bios ui? everyone else's sucks ass, they have no options
>>83822908>1440p: RTX 3060 Ti, RX 6700 XTHow true is this? I keep hearing 6700xt is worse at 1440p than the next level up.
Ok /g/, I've been gaming on consoles for the last 20 years but it became unbearable and I've bought a gaming PC with an 8gb 2070 super ex. A friend of mine bought a 12gb 3060 but he made an offer to exchange gpus because, apparently, mine is better for cryptofaggotry.Should I go for it? His GPU is brand-new and mine is already some months old, it also has 12gb which should be better. The videos I saw on benchmark make my gpu look better for older games, but I'm worried it will fall behind in a few years and be obsolete for gaming faster than a newer generation.
>>83829264Well, I am well off and when I discovered that Ryzen 9 is a waste of money and gimped due to memory bandwidth, I went for Threadripper. Even the motherboards are superior.
>>83829806Nah your friend is trying to jew you
>>83829806yeah the 3060 is LHR and the 2070 is a 50+ MH/s card. You friend is smart enough to trade you the better gaming card for the better money printer. Passive income is much a lot smarter than playing games like a worthless manchild
>>83829838>I discovered that Ryzen 9 is a waste of money and gimped due to memory bandwidthI don't understand the practicality of that statement considering the real life benchmarks of actual use cases show massive improvements.. But you're comparing a CPU that ranges from $550-$750 (5900x-5950x) to a CPU that's in the multiple thousands.For that price range it's the best you're going to get, plain and simple.
>>83829806i think the 2070super is a better card for gaming.the 3060 will be more efficient thoughi wouldn't go for a straight exchange, ask for $200-300 on top of his cardbleed that miner cunt dry anon :D
>>83829903The 3060’s 2nd Gen RTX cores alone are better than the 2070. Not even mentioning the better memory capacity and memory bandwidth
>>83829930jesus christ if you are so fucking poor then why even comment? kys tranny fuck
>>83829958t. this guys friends who is trying to jew him
>>83829903I trust him enough to believe he's not knowingly screwing me.>>83829919I understood about 30% of your post. It never really seems like "passive" income when it comes to crypto though. It seems my crypto friends put an ammount of effort into setting things up that would make me more money if I just worked my day job.>>83829949>>83829958I'm more worried about future games being more built to cater to 3000 gpus than 2000 gpus. I reckon mine probably has more raw power but could do worse in the future. In a few videos I saw comparing the two the 2070 capped at a higher fps, but the newer the game the more fps the 3060 had in comparison.
>>83829264>for a massive CPU upgrade.Yeah totally massive retard>>83829193You can update your BIOS now. You'll probably get a few quality of life upgrades for your 2600 anyway, like faster boot times>>83829234Might be within budget but if you want actually good performance, you'll get a 5600X now and a better CPU later. The 5900X will never be noticeably better than the 5600X while they are both high end gaming CPUs. If you're some shithead who thinks he's going to keep the CPU for 10 years, sure you can pay extra now for no noticeable performance gain only to have it be trash for gaming by the time there's any differentiation between the two>>83829281High refresh is mandatory for gaming. Even if you're not hitting the max refresh all the time, that's fine, but adaptive sync takes over. DLSS is for 1440p or above, except as a last resort. If possible, buy a 1440p monitor if you're buying new now. They're barely more expensive than a decent 1080p monitor>>83829766Check benchmarks for yourself at techpowerup
>>83830195What's the consensus on the 5800x? I read it's shit for the price, so I assume the only worthwhile 5 is the 5600x?
>>838302425600x for gaming, 5900x for productivity/multicore
>>83830242It was at launch, for some definition of "shit". The price has come down more relative to the others so now its value is more in line with the rest of the range. Zen3 prices are still fluctuating so take this with a grain of salt - if in doubt, do the math.
>>83830177>understood about 30% of your postit’s okay. The world needs low IQ poor people and laborers to loan money to.
>>83828891yeah nobody cares you should’ve bought a real GPU not AMDshite
Retard here, why is AMD considered so bad?
>>83830522They arn't, its just intel shills
>>83830522AMD veteran here.AMD has numerous unresolved architectural flaws in RDNA\2 and currently also with B550\X570 chips. A lot of this could’ve been overlooked when they were a bargain. But their sales have been high due to getting lucky with the performance of Zen2 and Zen3 so now they demand a premium over Intel/Nvidia when they don’t really deserve the premium. AMD does not make a premium product.
>>83830580nope. I only have a 6700 intel right now But in my home we have (2) R3 3200Gs, an R9 3900X and an R5 5600x. (2) RX 580s, An RX 5500 XT and an RX 5700. Would an Intel shill own so much AMD stuff? I am just pissed that my B550 is so shite. And RDNA was such a fucking shitfest.
>>83830618>I only have a 6700 intel right nowYeah sure
I got myself a case that's around 8.5" x 17.5".My desk has no room for holding it up and I got a carpeted floor. So I need something to raise it.What's the best cpu mount/stand to get for this kind of situation? I tried getting one of those ones with the L shaped metal pieces that slide into each other, but it was pretty shit quality and even the widest setting wasn't wide enough despite saying it should be.Returning that one but now I really wanna know what'll work before I try a new one. Especially cautious cause my case is the kind with a vent on the bottom for the power block.
>>83830496I intentionally bought AMD because I wanted to ditch proprietary drivers. Definitely the sort of post I would expect from a /v/irgin defending his favorite console desu, rather than a post on a board about actually discussing technology.
>>83830650Go to Amazon and type in PC stand or PC mount, you can find plenty for like £25-£30
>>83830656maybe you shouldn’t play a proprietary game and instead find a FOSS alternative to Diablo
5600x or 10700?
>>83830685I think there's actually a FOSS reimplementation of D1 that I've been meaning to try at some point.
>>83830683Yeah, I see them. I'm wondering if there's any in specific that are better to get than others.Like, the one with the open design and the sliding bars for $20 looks like it'll work but I'm worried it'll be some cheap ass plastic that'll break under the weight of my big boy.There's also wood ones but I dunno if those would be worth it either.Was trying to see if anyone else has experience with this kinda setup.
>>83830735If you click on them they normally have a weight limit, if you know how much you PC weights you'll know if it'll break the thing
>>83830522Lack of quality control, lack of features. Current gen products are a lot better though>>838306965600X. Cheaper, cooler
Convince me not to pick all my own PC parts but pay someone to put it all together for me
>>83831007I literally can't
I noticed that amazon has 10tb WD black drives available (kinda expensive but may be an investment?)Are they any reliable? Should I go for a lower size for longer safety?I'd like to replace a bunch of my older small drives all at once if possible
>>83831170It depends, i personally keep severaly smaller HDDs rather than one big one. If the big one dies you lose it all, if one small one dies you lose like 2TB max
>>83831170If it's for shit you don't care about, buy one. If it's for important shit, buy two and RAID them.
>>83831226I'm a scrub when it comes to HDDS and SSDs, what is RAID?
>>83831199true, but the data I plan to move to the big disk is really old data, which would still be available in the older drives, which I'll unplug.For newer data I'd either backup on my NAS with RAID anyway or just not care if it's something replaceable like steam games>>83831226yeah sounds like what I just thought.I was wondering if anyone ever heard of the reliability of those drives, I can't really find much by looking on google
>>83831253The chance of a HDD dying is super low, its just always a risk the bigger you go the more you lose
>>83831253Maybe try Backblaze. Unfortunately they've moved almost exclusively to server/enterprise drives so there's not much chance of getting good long term or large scale reliability data.
>>838312867$ monthly for "unlimited" backups?What's the catch? There has to be a catch, there's no way they'd let me store something like 30tb of data for such a low price
>>83831314depends what your data is anon
>>83831314Why not just set up your own home server? Shits not even expensive in current year
>>83831314I meant try them for their reliability testing. I don't know about the products they offer. At a guess I'd say they expect the typical user to store <1GB of data so they'll make money on the spread.
>>83831339I do have one though, but it failed once and I lost a lot, I want to backup my stuff on as many places as possible, also I'm running out of storage on my main computer, steam games are the most annoying ones to manage but also photoshoots that I'm still working on.The first is replaceable, the second isn't but I'm already backing up on amazon and on the NAS.It's having to constantly juggle files around that it's annoying mostly, that's why I'm looing into a larger drive
>>83830755Alright, decided I'll try out this one. Toribio widened CPU stand.It's pretty big so surely my computer will at least fit. Hopefully it's little feet will be enough to get air flowing between the vent on the bottom and the stand itself since it doesn't seem to have holes or anything on it.
>>83831381You have 30tb of photoshop stuff? Sus
>>83831394photoshop is actually 2tb max right now
>>83831386Do you really need a bottom vent? You cant top vent?
>>83831407And the other 28tb?
>>83831386fucking zoomer you are going to spend $40 on that laminated and plastic chinkshit instead of going to Lowes or Home Depot and building something for yourself?
>>83831418fuck I don't remember it's a lot of shit, maybe some of it is porn, like 1.5tb, rest is random shit and games
>>83831432>He thinks Lowes and Home Depot isnt all chink shit
>>83831436>Waifu >4TBSeek help
>>83831441The lumber is American or Canadian. So is the paint. The Chinkshit hardware (casters) would be less than $10
>>83831450waifu is actually the name and not the content, it's mostly steam games, random phone backups and photoshop right now, I just ran out of meguka names
>>83831466>The lumber is American or Canadianyeah i'm sure it is
>>83831469>waifu is actually the name and not the contentWhatever you say anon
>>83831409I got airflow on basically all sides. I just know there's a vent built into the bottom under the power block. I don't think it needs a ton of air or anything, just wanna make sure nothing is blocked. Obviously it's a problem on carpet hence wanting a stand/riser. Currently I just got some cardboard down under it.>>83831432I mean, how different would it really be for me to buy a laminated piece of wood, some wheels, some "rails" for the side and the means to screw it all together securely? I mean like actually. I have no clue how much something like that would cost assuming I could figure it all out.
>>83831476Well it’s not Mexican. Canada has enough lumber to supply the entire planet
>>83831493The stand should be all the height you need to vent
>>83831493$20You just buy a piece of laminate and a 4 pack of casters (picrel) Screw the casters in the bottom with a power drill
>>83831520No, im not poor like you
>>83831520But like how much is a power drill though? I don't have a lot of DIY stuff besides screwdrivers and whatnot I used for my build.
>>83831493you don’t need “rails” for the side just make sure you have at least 3 inches of board space on your laminate. Just get a measurement and go to the hardware store and buy something that much larger.
>>83831493>I have no clue how much something like that would cost assuming I could figure it all out.why don't u just buy something from ikea mateif you have tools/the place to do the woodworking/time im sure you can save some $but honestly is it fucking worth it?imo get one of these https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/alex-drawer-unit-black-brown-60473548/and put the pc on it
>>83831524>not poor>buying plastic garbage instead of making something that will last for a centuryYou are a poor wasteful nigger. Borrowing shekels from Schlomo and spending them on Amazon doesn’t make you rich. It makes Schlomo rich.
Just let him buy his little PC stand you cucks
>>83831565man you are so poor and so mad arn't you little baby
>>83831568>Just let him buy his little PC stand you cuckswe are trying to uncuck that zoomer. Sounds like he never had a father to teach him how to build something. What man in 2021 doesn’t have a cordless drill? Fuck
hey guys what are we talking about?btw i didnt get to buy a gpu today from the amd website
>>83831533That's how you get tools, you buy them for a project and then have them for all future projects. Eventually you need a garage for them all, and you're building cool stuff.
>>83831579yes, im so pooryou beat me you genius
>>83824488I'm in the same boat. Considering 5900x, 11900k (more stable I think) or zen3 refresh in 3-4 months
>>83831610>hey guys what are we talking about?>btw i didnt get to buy a gpu today from the amd websitezoomer is learning how to measure and use a drill to make something like a real man instead of buying a particle board chink PC stand like a single mom
I will buy a PC stand, you will seeth
>>83831702seethe? nopebut you will never see pride in your single mother’s eyes. It’s apparent you already grew up without seeing a father’s pride.
>>83831741And you will always be poor
>>83831759yes, so very poor
Geez, I really didn't expect a simple question like this to devolve into this shitposting. Sorry for that.Out of curiosity, where do you all sit your PC so it's both open and not sucking up carpet dust? Is it just my issue being a desklet without enough room for it?
is the only difference on the upcoming 5000 refresh a "3d cache" or will it be more substantial? sounds kinda stupid. i am considering alder lake if theres no big ryzen launch soon.
>>83831865I sit it on my personally made from Americas finest wood stand that me and my old man made over the course of 25 years
>>83831879basedThat’s how you build a legacy.Me and my old cut down a 2000 year old sequoia and made every piece of furniture in our 9 bedroom, 3 story house from that mighty tree
>>83831865I used a ~$20 stand to keep it off the carpet back when I was a desklet. Now I have a 160x80 cm desk so it sits up here with me.
>>83831007There's nothing wrong with custom built computers. You knowingly pay extra for convenience, that's it.
>>83831865Of course, my rig is rackmounted with everything else
>>83832025Yeah its a no brainer for me, for just £40 they build it, test all the components and do a 24 hour burn, install Win10, install all the latest drivers and Bios and deliver it.
>>83831866The Ryzen architecture benefits disproportionately from increased cache because RAM accesses are slower than they would be on a monolithic die. For an EoL refresh just increasing the cache would be "fine" from a performance perspective. It should be noted that the current rumours indicate that the refresh will only apply to the top end of Zen 3 processors - if you're just in the market for a 5600X gaming rig then it's probably not worth it to wait. If you have a graphics card already, that is. If you don't, then you might as well keep looking because no amount of 3D cache or bigLITTLE will make up for paying 200% for the card.
Is it possible to enable idle fan stop when using a custom GPU fan curve in MSI afterburner? The card is a 6800 XT
Is a 1tb m.2 drive sufficient? Do you need excess space?
>>83832066>just increasing the cache would be "fine" from a performance perspectiveIf it's eol then it's worth it to go for the top of the line,no?
>>83832158If you want bulk storage buy a big HDD
>>83832158>Do you need excess space?In total? Yes. But I would get a larger SATA SSD or even an HDD for that. If I were putting together a new build right now, I would use a 1 TB M.2 for Windows and general document/picture storage, and get a 2-4 TB SATA SSD for games. Then of course, an external HDD is always handy to have for general backing up and big ole bulk storage when you need it.
>>83832066i would be interested in the max cores for production work stuff. so like the 6950x or the 12900k i guess. what do you think will happen with the 6950x vs the 12900k? alder lake looks like it jumped 100 points in single thread performance which is pretty big. i wonder if a "3d cache ryzen refresh" could match that.
>>83832251Alder Lake is a house fire waiting to happen, it'll be temp throttled 99% of the time
>>83826833Objectively incorrect. Many manufacturers show top hosing as the preferred method for install.
>>83832262nooooo I thought water coolers could handle ANY throttling issues!Does this mean the Arctic Liquid Freezer II is jot up to the task of taming Alder Lake?
>>83832262but it will be running most things on the efficiency cores unless you need max performance for a big workload. also for some reason i used a 11th gen 10nm intel laptop that had a retardedly fast desktop experience and i dont know why that was.
>>83832262Alder lake's 10nm lithography has a higher transistor density than TSMC's 7nm so I don't know where this retardation is coming from
>>83832283>>83832291>>83832300Nothing can cool Alder Lake, meme buyers will fine out real fast
>>83832306I will jump ship from AMD in a heartbeat if Alder lake is more than 15% more performant. I have zero loyalty to corporations
>>83832167I can't make value judgements for you. I took pains to avoid mentioning value or worth; to say that it would be "fine" is to say that it would be in line with improvements we have seen in other recent generational refreshes (eg. Zen 1 to Zen+, Kaby Lake to Coffee lake, Coffee Lake to Comet Lake, etc.). Its value to you will likely be primarily determined by the price at launch and whether you'll actually benefit from the improvements. If you've got money to burn then there's nothing stopping you, of course, and there's good arguments to be made for both staying on the most mature and stable expression of DDR4 and for jumping onto the latest DDR5 platform. >>83832251If you really want to know, wait for benchmarks. Real benchmarks. The kind of """leaks""" we're getting right now put Rocket Lake ahead of Zen 3 and we all know how that turned out. If you want my opinion I think the 5950X refresh will beat the 12900K in production work. Primarily due to a core advantage. In lightly threaded applications it's anyone's guess.
>>83832342>The kind of """leaks""" we're getting right now put Rocket Lake ahead of Zen 3 and we all know how that turned out.Rocket lake has higher performance core than Zen 3, so yes, it turned out well.
Is it time for an upgrade?
>>83832359Nah i'd keep that for atleast another 20 years
>>83832342I don't think they're going DDR5 on the zen refresh
>>83832395if they don't its going to get anally raped by alder lake no lube
>>83832357They equalized performance in gaming (quite a feat on a backported 5 year old node IMO) but production still lags behind. More importantly, and this was my point, the early leaks put it at a significant advantage in all areas which simply did not turn out to be the case. I would caution anyone against trusting the current "leaks", from Intel and AMD, because it's obvious many, if not most, are deliberate marketing ploys.
>>83832410No one will buy DDR5 for like the next 2 years atleast, its always a broken worthless meme at first
DDR5>expensive>needs new mobo>early immature technology>no different than fast ddr4 Why are you wearing for this anons?
>>83832395They're not. That's what makes the choice what it is. There's good arguments for the new platform and good arguments for staying on the mature one.
Pc gaming is truly dead.
>>83822908I'm looking to getting a 240hz monitor. I have a Radeon 580 4GB. Will this monitor rape my GPU and slow shit down?
How retarded would be to buy a monitor for a laptop? I'm getting a bit tired of my 720p screen and those 120hz monitors look kinda yummy. I would upgrade to an actual PC but the prices in my country are completely fucked btw, like even worse than in burgerland.

im getting laughed at because of my 6900xt by my friends :(
>>83832706You dont have friends
>>83832641It'll be next year for sure, probably Q3. Honestly if you can wait until then, I would, there are doing to be big advances across the board in everything, not just GPUs, and signs are pointing to the supply side of components stabilizing and thus coming down in price next year.
>>83832731Sounds good to me. Thanks anon. Will probably have more time on my hands to actually enjoy building one then anyways.
AIO water cooler or air cooler? Is it really that much of a difference even if I'm aiming for a NH-D15?

>>83832790i prefer air coolers because i like the way they look put it really just depends what you want. Ai is more about aesthetic and you can mount the rad pretty much anywhere performance wise you might shave 2 degrees off with an aio
>>83832814I also heard that AIOs are kind of a one night stand and once the water evaporates, they just become e-waste with no way to somehow refill it. Is that correct?
>>83832827AIOs dont have water in them you fucking retard, they have coolant and it doesnt evaporate
>>83832827yeah and there's more failure points like the pump dying and air burning it up but this usually takes like 3 years to happen
>>83832731also miners getting rekt
>>83832790see for yourself:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCxqITPtXXAadding to the performance/noise advantages:- with an AIO, all the heat of the cpu is thrown directly out of the case, making the ambient inside the case cooler for your GPU's benefit- AIOs make it easier to work on your system. no more struggling with ram height or trying to unhook the pcie clip that holds down your GPU- *much* safer than big ass aircoolers if you ever want to move your system. the aircooler is ~1kg of metal hanging of your mobos pcb, the aio is securely bolted to the case frameon the other hand, aircoolers have a reliability advantage. less stuff to go wrong, basically only the fans, and those are easily replaceable, usually.
>>83832839Why are they called water coolers if they don't have water inside, then?
>>83832877They are filled with distilled water and a thermally conductive fluid, they are filled with coolant.
>>83832359it was time to upgrade that graphing calculator before you bought it.
>>83832790They're both really close. A 'good' AIO will keep your temps lower by a few degrees, but also cost more and wear out much faster than a NH-D15, which could last you the next 30 years if they keep giving out free mounting hardware. AIOs definitely have an edge if you move your tower around a lot or have a small form factor case. I have a NH-D15 on my CPU and an AIO on my GPU. There's just not a huge difference.
>>83832885have you ever learned the water cycle in elementary school
>>83832891You are so stupid it hurts
>>83832803Probably. Test your temps, you can always up the RPM of the remaining intake fans to compensate if you really need to. Or you can look into aftermarket cooling options for the GPU.>>83832806Yes.>>83832888He did upgraded it anon-- to Windows 10!
>>83832961>Probably. Test your temps, you can always up the RPM of the remaining intake fans to compensate if you really need to. Or you can look into aftermarket cooling options for the GPU.For what it's worth, I would still have a 140mm fan above the GPU, just not one next to it/below it, which is my concern.
>>83832977dude, at this point in time it is *infinitely* easier to change/upgrade your case than it is to get your hands on a GPUtry it out, if it doesn't work well, get a new case
>>83833013OK, thanks. I'm just gonna go ahead and bite the bullet. Worse comes to worse I'll buy a new case.
>>83832977Oh, I guess that means you don't have a bottom intake. That's rough. Could you get a couple of 25-60mm fans and mod them in under the GPU?
>>83832619x570 is prefered b550 is more like "Chinese budget" depends on the cpu too and if you """""((((need))))""""" better power delivery for more cores
>>83833035I'm thinking of buying a 120mm slim fan, since that should give me enough clearance. Max GPU length without a front fan should be 335mm, the GPU I'm buying is 318mm, give or take.And like the other anon said, worse comes to worse, I'll buy a new case.
>>83832790air cooler because it performs about the same and its just easier to fuck with the kraken z73 is cool though because you can put memes on the pump
>>83833061>works overtime for half the pay
>>83833053What if I'm only planning to gayme?
trying to get a used GTS 450 but it doesnt come with the 4-6 pin power connectors. is it safe to get some random cheap old connectors off amazon? or I have to becareful cuz it'll damage my hardware or something?
i need a more flexible 8 pin power for my cpuwhat do? do i have to shell out for those reddit custom ones
>>83832871>heat of the cpu is thrown directly out of the caseonly in exhaust mode, who would want that?
Question for NH-D15 owners. How do you have space for your RAM? Just move the fan up?
>>83831436How do you have so much space? I feel like my PSU doesn't have enough slots for all of them, unless you link them all together with one cord.
>>83833088b550 is fine just check the supported ram speeds and certain features the *you* want. like pcie stuff
>>83833136its by far the most common configuration, anonaio at the top of the case, fans set to exhaust
so which card manufacture do I ignore because I heard people are having problems? I heard EVGA and ASUS are the only good ones
>>83833218From what I've seen the biggest detraction is overclocking limits and a singular 4.0 PCIe slot? So as long as I'm not buying two m.2 4.0's I'd be fine with a B550 for now?
>>83833256thats what i kind of meant by "power delivery" the pcie slot is the biggest difference theres other small things too like USB stuff. if its a 5600x the b550 is perfect. if its a 5900x then there's literally no reason to not get a 5900x (in my opinion.
>>83833292>not get a 5900xx570* im a bit dyslexic
>>83832619>B550 or X570? Is there any benefit whatsoever in the drastic price difference?just don’t try to connect more than 4 USB devices
>>83833485what if i use a usb hub and cannect 5 things to the hub??
i want to buy a high end setup even though my current setup is alright for my needsi feel this way about buying phones toois it the consoomer in me
Buy a console and leave a dead pc scene behind. Soon you will pay 2000$ to play 1080p60. Save your money.
>>83833623Until people figure out how to repurpose consoles for mining
>>83833497my experience with a hub is that it’s immediate disconnect instead of random disconnect
ALL SCALPERS, CHEATERS, RESELLERS, OPEN-BOX RETURNERS AND BOT PROGRAMMERS MUST FUCKING HANG
>>83833992do anons literally manually spam this cross thread crap every time a new thread is made?? yikes
