In some cases it just won't boot. In others you'll have instability or trouble getting it to run at the correct speeds. You can try it, it won't damage anything (except maybe any data you write to disk while using that memory config) but there's a pretty good chance it's not going to work like you want it to.

I'm looking to build my first PC, I have basically no knowledge on computers. I just need some really basic build to start that can run blender and other editing software like gimp and such and play a decent amount of games at ok settings, and yes I get that is vague. how much should I be expecting to have to save up? part by part estimate at least the major ones would be appreciated if possible.

cpu: 12400, ~200
cpu cooler, 50-100 depending on how quiet you'd like it to be
mobo: b660, ~100-150 depending on desired features
ram: 16-32gb dd4, 100-200
ssd: 1tb nvme gen3, ~100
psu: will depend on target gpu, but lets say around 100
case: 80-150, depending on quality/brand
total without gpu: $750 to $1k

and that takes care of the easy stuff, because now we talk abt gpus
as you're probably aware, the gpu situation is completely and utterly fucked right now
there are good reasons to expect it to improve by the summer
i would advise going ahead with the base build and buying a gpu then
if you decide to take this advise, you need to take care to buy the 12400 non-f, as the 12400f has no integrated graphics

you also have to decide what sort of resolution/framerate you want to go for
this will determine what gpu you need to buy
and this also affects your monitor purchase
you wouldn't want a super high end gpu with a 1080p panel or a 4k/144hz panel with a low end gpu

i would use an aio on the 12700
change the mobo to b660
be aware that 2 16gb kits are not the same as 1 32gb kit. the 2 kits are not guaranteed to hit their rated perf when used together, the single kit will
iirc the 980 non-pro doesn't have a dram cache, but do some research on that front
buying a gpu now is not a good idea, obviously. but, if you must..
i don't remember the p300 being reviewed anywhere. the bequiet 500dx and lian li lancool 215 are known good cases in that price class
you could get away with a 650w psu with that gpu, but its fine if you want to be a little futureproof

For reference I bought the Fractal Torrent and the bottom middle fan is making what seems like significantly more rotor noise than the other fans.
I also can't seem to get the bottom fan bracket off, the instructions just say to unscrew the two screws and it will go off but it's still stuck tight after unscrewing them.

9th gen consoles are using underclocked 3700x's that have to share memory with the GPU, Zen 2 on desktop is better, not to mention Zen 3.

it performed the same as the 500DX when paired with standard fans, so with an AIO it would be great

why would the same prob persist on two diff GPUS like that do you think?
my 1070 worked perfect until a month ago and I was able to get a $500 new 3060 RTX thinking it was the GPU, but alas the problem was still there.
The ONLY thing that has somewhat helped it is using DLSS on some games.

I ask you guys only because i have just came up short on fixing this problem when ive almost replaced the entire PC.

Hello, I would like to build an high end computer for programming (and buy a GPU later if I want to do some gayming). The problem is that for my programming needs I exclusively use Debian (Windows only for gaming). Debian is using some old Linux kernel I guess and I would like to know if it I can have problems with recent motherboard or CPUs. I was planning on buying a 5900x or i9-12900K, do you know the big difference between the two? I heard the i9-12900K is harder to cool so it would make my build more noisy (a big NO for me), is it true?
>>
>>85230160
>I would like to know if it I can have problems with recent motherboard or CPUs
i haven't tried this, but its possible that (older) kernels haven't got a scheduler that can properly utilize e-cores

>I heard the i9-12900K is harder to cool so it would make my build more noisy
its less efficient overall
but in both cases you would be well advised to go with a big ass aio
and big ass aios will eat transient spikes in temp for breakfast
tldr i don't think it will be a noticeable difference unless you're compiling large projects a lot

imo the safe choice is the 5900x
but the 12900k is the better value for money
your choice

If AMD wanted to they could easily create an apu with that kind of performance. Ditch the vega graphics and actually put a decent amount of RDNA cores on an APU.

I want to buy a BD Reader, possibly writer, but that's less important.
I'm hoping to archive a lot of the movies/games/music/whatever that I have, and I know I can buy a regular CD/DVD reader for that, but I also thought that while I'm at it, might as well be able to consoom Bluray media too.
What are some of the better choices for internal 5.25" drives?
I don't want to just sort by price highest->lowest and select the most expensive one because I feel I'd just be scamming myself.

CPU reviews are in such a shit state it took me searching a old school invasionfree looking nigga of a website just to figure out how alder lake actually performs when configured/overclocked properly with whatever the ideal ram is(turns out ddr4 is just flat out superior btw except like one game that's bandwidth centric and would also show huge gains from 5133mhz hynix d4). You don't just have to dig up info on bins and what you can expect from different silicon qualities, interactions with specific game engines or GPU drivers etc but you gotta do it like four times getting together information for skylake, rkl, adl, zen 3 to have the complete picture. Imc on 10900k is superior to 12900k why would you even bother showing how they perform with the same 3200cl14-14-14-36 command rate 2 trefi of like 20% what a bad dimm can do when a $50 kit of heatsink-less Dell d4 with Samsung ICs can do better than that. retards "overclocking" to 5ghz on a 12900k with a fucking single tower noctua cooler that uses a 300rpm fan. $75 for a 360mm aio with five times the head of a asetek pump on Aliexpress you excessively retarded nigger techpowerup.
I mean what the fuck do I care how a $650 CPU, $350 motherboard, and $240 kit of ddr4 perform STOCK? or sorry if you're gamersnexus sub-stock if stock means out of the box.
after a half hour in bios using the same exact GPU and settings this 12700k is pumping out 19% more frames than what was in the reviews and I'm not even good at overclocking, can't be fucked to read.
whole computer market is just fucked. no one even cares that half their GPU is wasted on RT/tensor and that it's not overockabke while the same companies are shipping cards that are 4 times as fast as a 1080ti to server farms with disabled directx so no one can get the Timmies upset.

the only people who even heard of them are miners

eth provides around 20 billion a year revenue to miners
ALL the other gpu shicoins COMBINED add up to around 700mil
after pos, gpu mining is dead

but definitely for the foreseeable future/until the next bullrun

>>85231421
The coins that are shat on/not talked about on /biz/ are usually the ones who go parabolic. That's called smart money move.

>>
>>85231467
>Why don't you try doing your own research for once?
i did
my research told me that after eth goes pos, which it will, gpu mining is dead
because it doesn't matter what coin the minerfags switch to, the total revenues are at most 5% of what eth provides
and therefore 90% of all miner cards will have to be sold for the rest to start breaking even
so, eth goes pos, 20 million miner cards flood ebay, prices go through the floor, and i get my sub 50% msrp 3070
>>
>>85231473
Keep buying top 10 coins, dude. You're definitely gonna be rich off $100 in ten years. Sure thing.
One more thing: ETH will never go PoS. This transition has been stretched for half a decade already. There's just too much money behind scenes for the foundation and Vb to pull the trigger. What makes you think this time will be different?

>This transition has been stretched for half a decade already
factually wrong.
pos was on the roadmap from the beginning, but it has only been the current upgrade being worked on since july
it has been delayed exactly once, from dec '21 to june '22.

>the foundation and Vb
exactly
vitalik and the other foundation whales are, well, WHALES
they are HOLDERS, not MINERS
and pos benefits holders massively
-no more selling pressure from miners
-holders get to stake their coins for more gains with 0 hardware costs
-no more environmentalist fudding of the coin
-no more legislative risk because of the environmentalist fudding
so, pos will be pushed through as fast as possible, precisely because vitalik and the foundation whales have so much to gain

yea, they really needed a $200 5600 non-x

yes. no idea.
its to compete with the 12100/12400.

Welcome to having eyeballs, anon. It's basically a problem with those lines being thinner than pixels. Buy a higher resolution monitor (1440p or even 4K if you can't unsee that kind of stability issue). Since you have an RTX GPU, run DLDSR such that you downsample 1440p DLSS to your (presumably) 1080p monitor in the meantime.

Scalping is only possibly when a product is priced artificially low

Let's say the 3080 is selling for $1800 on a real market like ebay. If all retailers price 3080s at market value ($1800), scalpers have no incentive to buy them. The main worry is that Nvidia and AMD will raise MSRPs substantially, which is basically the point of the 12GB 3080 as far as I can tell. It's a reset of the MSRP to reflect market value

Very fortunate that Intel is getting into the graphics card game, because that at least provides some hope that there will be price competition when there's eventually more supply of GPUs than there is demand. That's when we'll see whether there's just more price collusion (like there has been between AMD and Nvidia, where AMD just matches whatever price Nvidia shits out while having a worse product), or whether they actually undercut each other. IMO three players improves the chance that the latter will happen
>>
Are you just extra fucked when it comes to GPU prices in EU? There's no direct sales and retailers don't have to follow MSRP at all so they mark them up 2x before they can even get into scalpers' hands

What's a way to tell if a weak VRM can still run a high-power CPU? Such as i7-12700[F], a 180W chip, with the low-end ASRock B660M-HDV with 6-phase VRM.
>>
It's really sad when you have to wait on Intel to see if they save the low-watt GPU market.
>>
>>85232832
There are no suitable motherboards that could not power it. The motherboards must be made to a spec given by Intel to be a valid socket chipset combo. The only problem you might have is you can't overclock.
>>
Just picked up a GTX 960 4GB for $60. Good or bad deal?
>>
>>85232909
The 12700 has a stock 65W TDP. But if you run at that power limit, you'll see significant decreases in multithreaded performance. B660 allows you to unlock the power limits, in which case the chip can draw up to about 180W in multithreaded workloads. Not all B660s are created equal in terms of power delivery, so the chip might throttle or the VRMs might be running just inside the safe temp limits, etc
>>
>>85232832
If you knew what components they used for the VRM you could calculate it. It's not an easy calculation though.
If you already have the board, throw some small copper heatsinks on the MOSFETs (and the other stuff, why not). Tweak the power limits until the VRM goes out of spec.
If you don't already have the board, save up for a better one.
>>
>>85232629

It's fine but DLSS looks significantly better than other upscalers at 1440p.

I can understand that it's annoying from a scientific perspective (these people have obviously never been to university where experimental methods must be impeccably laid out even in undergrad), but you can basically just ignore the PBO results because the main result of enabling it is that your CPU fan speed is fast enough that your PC will achieve takeoff and then slowly float away.

All the new scaling tech acronyms: I'm can't keep up. Someone please explain.
>>
>>85233955
The only ones you need to know as a gaymer are FSR and DLSS.

FSR: A "dumb" upscaler with a sharpening filter. Easy to implement, worse for image quality. AMD developed.

DLSS: Uses neural networks to predict what the game will look like at higher resolutions. Hard to implement (massive training time/cost), better image quality. Still not as good as native obvs. Also offers fantastic AA if you run at native res. Nvidia developed.
>>
>>85233926
I'm not really planning to upgrade or anything. Just casual mid/low gaming on stuff that I didn't enjoy when I was a kid :(
>>
>>85234009
>Also offers fantastic AA if you run at native res
how do you set this up? like if you want to run natively at 1440p you set it to 4k and downscale it with dlss to 1440p?
>>
>>85233031
Mining hardware is toys
>>
>>85234038
It'll depend on the game. I'm not aware of any that allow you to select an actual render resolution (though I'd be happy to see an example). The "ultra quality" setting is pretty close to native AFAIK. Downscaling like you said would be more like a standard AA implementation - probably not worth the DLSS overhead vs. MSAA.
>>
>>85233955
Upscaling: Starting at a particular base resolution and creating a higher resolution image at the target resolution. Ex: 1440p --> 2160p
"Mode": Various base resolutions scaling to the target resolution. 1440p --> 2160p vs 1080p --> 2160p

DLSS 2.1+ : Exclusive to RTX cards. Highest quality, looks near native most of the time when using the Quality mode. Temporal method, and as such has excellent anti aliasing properties. Must be implemented into the game by developers. Available as a plugin for Unreal and Unity

FSR: Usable by any graphics card. 4K on Ultra Quality mode looks near native. Spacial technique, applied after anti aliasing is performed by the game engine, so carries with it the flaws of whatever AA method the engine uses. 1440p Ultra quality is usable but visibly lower quality than DLSS

TAAU: Unreal's built in temporal upscaling solution. Better than FSR but significantly lacking compared to DLSS.

XeSS: Intel's platform agnostic DL upscaling technique. Temporal. A black box as of yet; the first implementation will probably be in Hitman 3. Uses a specific set of instructions that various GPUs might or might not have the capability to run at various performance penalties. Likely to be similar in quality to DLSS, or at least above TAAU, with slightly worse performance than DLSS, although significantly better performance than simply running at native

Looking for a 27' 1440p ips monitor for gayming and general use that isn't photo editing
Preferably something with better than nonexistent contrast/uniformity
It's gonna run on a 1070ti for a while and I'll also use it for my console so good performance at lower/variable refresh rates is needed

is there a better current or upcoming monitor than the mag274qrf-qd for me?

it has performance improvements in certain applications and there’s no real downside to having it.
I had a PNY 3060Ti that I cross flashed to the Revel model because they were taking their time with ReBar and it also gave me a higher power limit too so crossflashing has benefits if it interests you and you know what you’re doing.

M2_1, direct to CPU as the other anon stated

>>85236111
Probably has to be experimentally determined for your game / monitor / level of perf that the system can provide, but up to 10% below the maximum refresh rate of the monitor. You might be able to get away with a cap close to max refresh if you're playing a game like Valorant

>>85235671
>I want to swap my 3060ti for a 6700xt
Retarded, the 3060 Ti is better

>>85235579
Doesn't matter too much in my opinion. If you like tinkering / optimizing, why not. If your card has dual BIOS, there's almost no risk

>>85235204
It supplants DSR, and is more useful than DSR because the performance requirements are lower; i.e., you don't have to render at native 4K if you want to downsample from 4K to 1080p

>>85234965
>I'll also use it for my console
Playstation hates 1440p, and Xbox is only mildly better. I would consider an HDMI 2.1 high refresh 4K monitor if you have a PS5 or SeX. Contrast on any IPS is pretty garbage, and if you're already considering spending $400+ on a monitor, might be worth waiting for the Odyssey G7 to go on sale for $550 again. It just went back to its normal price of $700. Not a great monitor for consoles in my opinion though

>>85234836
>what SSD hasn't gotten cucked by parts changes with new revisions?
Any SSD that hasn't been out for long, so 980 non-Pro for instance

>>85234473
Hold out, pray that your B350 gets a Zen3 BIOS update. The first official 300 series BIOS updates that provide support for Zen3 just rolled out. By that time maybe the Zen3 chips will have received a price cut as well, to put them in line with what Intel is offering

As this shows: >>85235780, a 32% performance uplift. So while you’re playing at high, I’m playing at ultra. While you’re at 1440p 60, I’m at 4K60 or 1440p165hz. Get fucked loser lol.
>>
>>85234129
Needs SSD if you don't already have one

>>85234120
The best replacement would be a used 3GB 1060. Not particularly useful for mining and similar perf to your 970, with the added bonus of Freesync support

Someone on /v/ told me I should be using a second power cable for my gpu "instead of the pigtails off a single cable. The gpu can exceed the safe draw limit on a single cable like that and burn out the cable."

is there truth to this or am I good?
>>
>>85236702
>DLSS has far less overhead than MSAA
Under normal circumstances sure. In the context of using DLSS to /downscale/ a render resolution, no. Putting the feasibility of such a proposition aside.

>>85236742
That is completely true
>>

it's true but generally it's fine like this

Depends on the PSU and cable. For the PSU, if it's a cheap multi-rail model, you could exceed the capacity of the rail. Hopefully triggering OCP. For the cable, if it's not thick enough to heatsink the resistive losses, then it could melt/short. Same applies to the connector. In practice this is only really a problem with either super cheap PSUs or in extreme OC situations. However there's no reason not to split the load just to be safe.
>>
>>85236838
my PSU is the Corsair RM750X 750W v2
>>85236760
>>85236791
I guess I'll have to fix it then
>>
>>85236853
That's a single rail PSU, and a high end one at that, so you should be fine. Still, run a heavy GPU load and feel the cable. If it's warn, or hot, to the touch you should fix it immediately. If it's cool then you're fine - maybe fix it the next time you clean your PC.

>trying to install hyper 212 cooler
>screws are a couple mm above the holes in the mb
>turning the screws does nothing
Seriously what the fuck. I followed the instructions correctly as far as I can tell and I used everything I was supposed to. The only way this could work now is of I apply enough downward force to make the screws catch, but it's already sliding around if I just try screwing.
Can't even find a video showing installation because there's like 20 models with slightly different names and different mounting parts.

It's literally called DLDSR, and it's less cost intensive than MSAA as far as I'm aware. MSAA is basically just rendering at a higher resolution

Yeah that's what I'm getting at. DLSS isn't really designed to downscale so the overhead that /doesn't/ come from the higher render res will be higher than something designed to do that like MSAA or DLDSR. Just a silly hypothetical.
>>
Gpu...
>>
>>85237666
Think about this
>use DLSS to render at a higher than native resolution, e.g., 1080p-->1440p, which it basically does at no performance cost
vs
>render native 1440p

The resulting image is downscaled. Which one is cheaper?
>>
>>85237756
That's not the scenario I was referring to. The order is reversed. In my (or rather >>85234038's) scenario the frame is rendered /before/ DLSS is implemented - incurring all the performance cost. DLDSR is absolutely lower impact than MSAA but it's not what we were talking about.
