Can, or rather should, I use an OLED monitor for web browsing, or it should it only be used for gaming/watching media? I hear different things about burn in and it worries me.
what are your guys thoughts of buying a used gpu directly from amazon?
why is the lighting so bad
>>91107651>tfw you leave the house for the first time in 3 weeks
>>91107638You can safely use your OLED monitor to browse all web sites approved by the United States Department of Homeland Security my fren.
>>91107609Is it better to use RSIC or x86 if I wanna do low level assembly stuff on a daily basis? I heard that x86 is aids
>>91107651Could be too much blooming.
>>91107648buyer beware... but even if your seller is shit amazon still guarantees a return if it says so, so you don't have much to lose unless you find out it's bad after the time passes. just run fur mark on it
>>91107673> low level assembly stuffWhat would that be?t. opcoder

Putting computer inside desk.Putting fan on both holes.Putting charcoal filter over both holes.Room air is now purified. Will it negatively affect airflow and temps?
>>91107697its actually directly from amazon warehouse. So here is hoping everything goes well.
>>91107735You would know what to choose if you had a purpose to do it.
>>91107851 I'm noob
>>91107744>pcmasterraceIs this shit still really a thing? Why haven't they changed that sub name already
>>91107735x86 is certainly easier to begin with. Try this:https://emu8086.en.lo4d.com/windows
>>91107651It's like going back to 2010 in a bad way. It's crazy how bloom is almost always abused, even now. Very little of it exists in real life.
>>91107871And after that you may be ripe for this:https://www.masm32.com/
>>91107669Yeah, but for how long?
>>91107651meanwhile in 2007
>>91107750Probably not enough airflow to actually affect whole room. You will also have to regularly replace the filter on intake because it's going to be dust magnet.> Will it negatively affect airflow and temps?Depending entirely on how you set them up.
>>91107900depends. what is the sweet spot between the price you are willing to pay and the life expectancy of the product?if the product has a life expectancy (with burn in) that exceeds the time to next upgrade then why wouldn't you buy it now?
>>91107900For as long as is adequate.
>>91107933Damn Koreans down there!
why isn't the 6950x not talked about more? it benchmarks better than a 3090ti but is like half its price both retail and secondhand and gets no attention. why?
>>91107933Funfact: Crysis 1 took place in 2020
>>91107967meant 6950 xt
>>91107967AMD drivers pretty much, the day they finally get their shit together on windows is when NoVidya goes bankrupt>loonixNo games
>>91107939Well, ideally it lasts forever. I am not sure what a reasonable expectation to have for OLED is. If I can use the monitor daily for, say, ~4-5 years, then I wouldn't mind paying around $1000. To give some frame of reference, I bought a $500 monitor two years ago and while it still works just fine, I'm considering upgrading to 4k and thus am looking to replace it.
>>91107995if it were drivers, every reviewer would be mentioning it. because they don't its down to user error.
I'm upgrading from i5-6600k and 1060 6gb, I only upgrade my pc every ~5 years, I'm interested in 5800X3D, but was reading about needing to flash the BIOS. Are there any budget motherboards that don't need to be flashed? How can I tell if a motherboard needs this, or if it has the ability to flash a new BIOS without a CPU installed?
>>91107995so it's not expensive or talked about much because of its drivers? and it's beating the 3090ti in benchmarks even though it has shit drivers? that doesn't make any sense
>>91107651women and PoC
>>91107967In my area 7900xt costs less than 6950xt while being faster and colder.
>>91107867BECAUSE PC GAYMEN IS HECKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (console peasants wouldn't understand heh) xDDD
>>91108001but they don't last forever. It was only about ~10 years before LED 1080p was completely replaced in the OLED TV space by 4k for the same price.I think we're nearly there with OLED monitors--if you can accept the fact that you don't use a monitor forever.
>>91108020its only $699 in the US and out of stock or fuck all expensive everywhere else in the world.
>>91108002Reviewers benchmark on clean installed OS with fresh up to date drivers and nothing else on the system outside monitoring software and whatever programs bench the cards. That's not really the real user experience for the majority.
what's the ideal set up?- macbook pro 16" m2 max + 4090 desktop and use parsec- macbook pro 16" m2 max + 4090 desktop and use laptop for work and desktop for gaming- macbook air m2 + 4090 desktop and use parsec?
>>91108046so user error...if you're doing something thats deliberately fucking up the driver that a otherwise clean machine wouldnt then its not the driver its the conflicting software you dumbfuck.
>>91108056It's like when people go "MUH AMD HARDWARE ACCELERATION DOESN'T WORK" and it turns out they're using D3D11ON12 with Chrome.
>>91108056That's the thing. Radeon drivers fuck themselves up over time without requiring you to lift a finger
>>91107967Because it should have launched at the current price. Now it has -2 years of driver support. (glorified 6900 XT)Basically, it would have been something to talk about if it were the current price a couple years ago.
>>91108070My machine hasn't screwed up yet. Same with reviewers who retest on dirty SSDs.
>>91108056>install the programs I need to use>have undocumented conflicts I have to hunt down from a fresh install and reinstalling one by one manually>this is a reasonable ask for every consumer btw
>>91108034I understand it won't last forever, that's my concern. It seems to be luck of the draw and some people have a monitor that lasts 3 months and others go years before experiencing any issues. I don't want to have to replace the monitor in a year if it's gonna cost me a grand. Like I said, if I can expect about 4 years out of it, that'd be enough to warrant a $1000 purchase. Does that seem fair, or is this wishful thinking?
>>91108070If Windows updates automatically in the background that's user error because you didn't install LTSC or disable updates because all windows updates are beta updates.
>>91108020No use for a top end car if its gonna seize up every 100km most people would rather go with the slower car that just worksAnd the 6950 XT is talked about even linus made a video praising itAnd its out of stock everywhere
>>91108079>he doesn't build a brand new computer for every single program he wants to run and exclusively uses it for that sole purposeNGMI
>>91108019the cheapest motherboard I know of with bios flashback is the Asus Prime B450M-A IIreally it shouldn't be a big deal, the 5800X3D has been out for almost a year.you would have to be supremely unlucky for a motherboard to ship without supporting the 5800X3D out of the box.
>>91108089>No use for a top end car if its gonna seize up every 100km most people would rather go with the slower car that just worksSo buy the AMD card then? Gotcha.
>>9110807999% of the time the issue is because of Windows and the user not understanding how Windows works or automatically updates.
>>91108096>he doesn't build a brand new VM for every single program he wants to run and exclusively uses it for that sole purpose
>>91108096That sums up docker pretty well
>>91108084do it. get a nice one.
>>91107744you have to go back and stay there
>>91108019The only reason today to make a new 5800X3D build is if you play games that really benefit from the cache. If it's just a general gaming rig you'd be better off with a 13600K or 7600X.>How can I tell if a motherboard has the ability to flash a new BIOS without a CPU installed?Go on the product page and read the specs. Look for USB BIOS Flashback (ASUS), Q-Flash Plus (GB), Flash BIOS Button (MSI), or Bios Flashback (ASRock). Alternatively, look for a little button labelled "BIOS" or something on the rear IO.Finally, if you're in the US, the MSI B550-A PRO is back down to MSRP. It was the go-to midrange board for Zen3. Has flashback and does a bit of everything else. Since the low end of B550 has shot up in price you might as well spend the extra $30 if you really insist on the X3D.
I'm a schizo does anyone know if 7950x3d will have tpm 2.0
>>91108366Who cares about that when it has guaranteed pluton?
>>91108366all modern cpus from 2019-2020 have it
>>91108388>>91108389what about 5800x3d its primarily for gaming but I want to use it for productivity it still might do okay right and doesn't have tpm 2.0 or pluton?
>>91108319no but I regret not getting one
>>91108019what's your budget ? 2 weeks for zen4x3d. anyway i went from i5 6500/380x to i5 10400/rx 6600. my framerate almost triple on gaming.

>>91108574weird that I never had any issues, just worked.
>>91107933>>91108417I'm convinced all modern game developers are incompetent. They aren't properly utilizing modern hardware that's several times more powerful. They're sloppy. They throw more detail at the whole scene, instead of selectively choosing the elements that actually matter and adding detail there.

Is there any other steps I should take besides WindowsSpyBlocker script on a new Windows install? It hasn't benmen updated in a bit now and I'm suspicious the pajeets would have added new listening ports in updates since then. And yes I have to use Windows for several work related production programs.
>>91108722>he already did a clean installhuh. I used LPX 3200 CL18 on 3600x and 1600x, it never worked on 1600x, only at 3000, but after a few agesa updates it started working on 3600x

>>91108926everyone overextended during covid>>91108958as a non console refugee I do not understand how halo infinite is different from other halos
my old pc died (pretty sure it was cpu and/or mb)microcenter has a deal going on: buy a 7000 cpu, and get free ddr5-6000 32gb and -20$ from any mbso, it was the perfect time to revive my dead pc and also upgrade to a ddr5 systemi reused everything but with a new cpu, mb and cooler (360mm aio instead of air)instant regret when i learned 7000 cpus hog a fuckton of power and run 95c... by design.not trying to speedrun destroying my computer againbut learning about pbo and eco mode made it not so bad?by default, it scores 29k on cinebench, while melting itself at 95cwith 105w eco mode, -30 curve optimizer, it scores 28.7k, capping it to 85c, but it only ran up to 70cliterally 1% performance drop while reducing max temp by 20cpretty ridiculous

>>91108926it was all those people making those "what its like to work in tech" videos on tiktok and youtube. the ones where half their day looks like they're either eating or using their phone.
>>91108973>as a non console refugee I do not understand how halo infinite is different from other halosPlay the Halo games in release order. MCC is always going on sale for $15 and most of the games are easily worth that price. Bungie stopped making the games in 2010, 343 crapped out Halo 4 a couple years later and it may as well be a different game. Halo 5 manages to be a little better/worse than 4 depending on the person, but it's really more of the same so you can easily skip it. Infinite is like 5 with a thin layer of 3 and Reach on top that was used to trick real Halo fans into thinking Infinite would be an actual attempt to a return to form. 343 literally used the already battered Halo fanbase in order to hype Infinite up. They're all unrepentant bastard SJWs and nepotistic faggots who deserve the rope. Truly some of the worst people to ever live.
>>91108994its thermally limited, its not destroying itself.at least you found Eco mode and yes it is ridiculous which is why AMD released the non X skus
>>91109054>Play the Halo games in release order.I did, except 4 which isn't on PC. It's same exact games. I didn't understand what the fuss was about when first Halo came out, I still do not understand it. I have a feeling people play those games differently to me, I basically run like in DOOM 2016 when playing it because it allows me to. It's probably harder to do on console though.
>>911090854 is on PC. Try playing on Heroic or Legendary. I guarantee you won't be able to run through Legendary because the AI cheats like a mother.
>>91108973>I do not understand how halo infinite is different from other haloshalo 1-3 is like call of duty 1&2halo beyond that is like modern warfare
for me, its medal of honor allied assault
I'll buy ASUS Zephyrus G14 tomorrow for $800 so I can give it to my niece for her college. Is this a good buy?Specs:5900HX306016gb1TB
>>91109133At least I'm not the only one who knows Reach was the beginning of the end. Bungie screwed up and 343 kept screwing up by following the path Bungie started. Old Bungie made ODST and moved onto Destiny, while Reach was mostly made by the post Halo 3 hires.
Why these two specifically
>>91109153got the same one for my nephew for school and set it up for him. pretty damn good for the money
>>91109153Does your niece really need a gayman laptop? Those things heat up like crazy and have joke battery life.
>>91108752The Japanese PM? I think he got killed.
>>91109133call of duty 1 and 2 were a copy of medal of honor allied assault, so it makes sense why I don't particularly like Halo, it's a copy of games I played whole 00smodern warfare was a shit game too, just saying
>>91109161theres four cases in your picture?
>>91109168No, she needs one for Blender and 3D rendering. I was thinking to buy a mini PC, but I'm not sure igpu is enough.
>>91109193Fair enough. Thermal is still going to be shit though
>>91109210would laptop cooling fan help?
>>91109035nah, know the guy who was like 2nd or 3rd in the credits on halo 4 got canned
>>91109232Technically it should just by the virtue of increased clearance between laptop and the surface it's sitting on.How well? I really don't know. Maybe there are youtube videos out there testing this kind of thing.
>>91108417AC Unity still looks good and beat Foreskinned
>>91109234Got a source on that? That's really good news, it just needs to be done a couple dozen more times so nobody calling the shots in 4/5/Infinite are around anymore. Not counting Staten, even though we know he's out, because he was pulled in way too late to have any real impact on overall direction. I don't even want the 4/5/Infinite leads to be at 343 in positions without any influence. They need to be completely removed, and preferably blacklisted from the video game industry.

I want to get that Deepcool Assassin 4 air-cooler.
Has anyone tried to lock his games at 40FPS on a 120Hz display? How is it? When I set my resolution to 1440p and lower my refresh rate is 120Hz by default (LG 55B2)
>>91109297I just know the guy. I think he's happy to do something else, honestly. Working on the same game year after year can't be fun
>>91109316I do it for Cyberpunk RT and Forspoken. Locked 40fps is better than having it judder around between 40-60. Your GPU is also much quieter as well. I believe it only works well if your displays freesync range actually hits 40hz or lower. Some start at like 48hz meaning you need a 48fps cap.
>>91109344>I'm a faggot! With my mind, haha!
>>91109344I do have the FreeSync and VRR. my TV can go down to 40Hz according to the AMD
>>91109354Then should be fine setting a cap with rivatuner or driver
>>91109365I use RivaTuner, thanksI hope Hitman III and Elden Ring do well at 40Hz
>>91109371if the game has bad framepacing issues to begin with then the cap wont help much. for example unreal engine 4 games that stutter everytime you load a new chunk.
>>91109316I've only done that on my Steam Deck. It should be fine at 120Hz as well since it's a multiple of the FPS. If you have variable refresh rate then there's no real need to lock FPS to 40 though, you shouldn't get judder or tearing no matter what. 40FPS in general feels much better than 30 but obviously not as good as 60 or beyond. For a device like a Deck it's a potentially worthy target since you always have to balance performance and battery life, on a desktop PC I don't think it's worth bothering with unless you are running without VRR, in which case 40FPS at 120Hz may feel a bit better than slightly higher FPS but with either judder or tearing.
>>9110939640hz is where the VRR range begins for most panels hence the 40 FPS. below that VRR turns off.
>>91107933screenshot from the remake, not the original, but i get your point. heres a comparison of the original crysis vs the remake (og on top)the silver gun is a dead giveaway
>>91109297>Got a source on that?https://www.reddit.com/r/halo/comments/10g1ei3/this_is_not_good_at_all/
>>91109451well that's the guy, you can trust me or reddit I guess
>>91109441>343 artists gone>this is somehow a bad thing
>>91109411That is not true for modern screens as far as I know, maybe if you have an ancient panel that can only do 40-60Hz or something. Modern/decent screens with high refresh rate should all support low frame rate compensation, as in if the current FPS is below the minimum VRR refresh rate the frame will simply be displayed twice and the screen effectively runs at double refresh rate, i.e. if you're running 35FPS on a screen with 40-120Hz VRR it will actually run at 70Hz and display each frame twice.This was an issue with very early FreeSync stuff and with GSync screens which didn't support high refresh rate. I'd be surprised to learn that any modern high refresh panel doesn't support LFC.
do i need DDU if upgrading gpu but it's amd to amd or nvidia to nvidia
>>91109617not required for gtx1000-rtx3000 to rtx4000 and vice versa
>>91109420in some ways the original is better than the remake. the remake is based on the console versions rather than the pc original. depth of field looks better in the original for example.
>>91109617you should always DDU no matter what because Windows likes to leave behind registry files that will fuck up something else.
>>91109617Haven't used AMD cards in a while, but for NVIDIA no, you don't need to use DDU. You don't even need to reinstall the driver, it should pick up the new card after the first boot and function normally thereafter.

>>911096963090ti is the mega housefire gpu so your psu will need to be changed. Your cpu too, since its cores are pretty slow>>91109700what is this kikery about?
>>91109782>you could also shift the fan upwards on the heatsinkNot sure if it's possible to shift enough for it still fitting into the case or if it even possible.
>>91109819oh right I forgot about noctuas
>>91107609What is a realistic monitor to buy when u own a 4070 ti?Playing with all settings maxed out
>>91109696>RTX 3090tiMy dude...
>>91109841It depends whether you want 1080p144fps or 1440p60fps. Personally I went for 1080p144fps as I prefer the very noticeable high refresh rate over the barely noticeable higher resolution.
>>91109857So AMD basically shut it down because people were making malware out of it.
>>91109789>>91109793Alright what are some signs that either "motherboard failure" or Windows 10 is fucking with my SSD? I think I have ruled out the motherboard though, I replaced the sata cable and plugged it into a different sata port on the motherboard and the problem is still there.
>>91109924what problem are you having?
>>91109917based. went the 27" 1440p 170hz route but wish i just did double 24" 1080p 144hz instead
>>91109917I currently have 1080p 144hz, so do you think it's okay just to skip the monitor upgrade then? I was looking at 1440p 144hz monitors but if it can't do that then I'll just skip
GPUs are getting out of control. Soon the coolers will be so big they literally won't fit in standard cases
>>91110040nah, Nvidia was going to push power higher than they ended up doing so because AMD having MCM rattled them but they eventually got a point where they realised they didn't need to be worried.
>>91109796Is form factor of psu's the same generally? I have NZXT S340 tower. On what new amd cpu ( AM4 ) would you recommend me to upgrade?>>91109882Is power cable meltdown issue on 4000 series was only on "official" nvidia cards?Right now a I'm aiming at GeForce RTX™ 3090 Ti GAMING X TRIO 24 gb VRAM . What i see is that 4070ti have only 12 of VRAM. I think in long term vram amount is important for me ( for 3d and vr). + i only have 1080p monitor.is MSI a good brand?
>>91109938I can't notice any difference whatsoever between 1440p and 1080p. 4K is noticeable but still nowhere near as noticeable as going from 60Hz to 144Hz, that's like night and day.>>91109942The 4070 Ti cannot run most 3A titles on ultra 1440p144fps. You'll only get a butter smooth 144fps experience at 1080p. Then again it all depends on whether you prefer higher resolution or higher refresh rate, if you can't notice the difference between 60Hz and 144Hz then go for 1440p60fps.
>>91110106MLID cope, it was just so AIB's could have higher margins from meme overbuilt coolers.
>>91110040Just make 7-slot coolers that fit in literally any ATX case instead. SLI is dead anyway.
>>91110126What u think about 4k 60hz or is it just a meme?
>>91110136even the 4090 reference is 3.5 slots, they could have gone with a 3 slot cooler like the 3090/3090ti
>>91110126>>911101661800p@90hz > 4k@60hz > 1440p@144hz

>>91110187one day someone decided deferred rendering had to become the norm and now all games look hazy and blurry as a result
>>91110123The cable melting problem was due to poor installation (bending). Just make sure you have enough room for cable management and a proper PSU to feed the beast and you're completely fine.>>91110166Possible with RT off, not possible with RT on. I think 4K is a soibeard resolution like "omg look at that fence in the distance you can see the mesh!!!!" while 144Hz feels remarkably more responsive as in it completely changes how you actually play instead of being just some luxury eye candy.
>>91110187>>91110230I am 100% sure it was to sell higher resolution monitors and high end gpus>see, 1080p is all muddy, see

>>91110261>>91110230>>91110187Did Witcher 2 have TAA? The Ubersampling looked really good in that.
Disable the game's AA options and just run the game at higher resolution than your monitor's native res, that's better AA
Got my hands on a 3090 TI but needed both a new psu and case to fit it - ended up doing basically a full re-build keeping only my cpu/chassis coolers and ssd. What do you guys think of the following?

>>91110343watching old porn videos in 480p is kino though, i wont want to upscale them
>>91109934I have 2 PCs, 1 is fine and the other is slow as shit as you can see in pic related. These SSDs are the same (in different PCs/crucial mx500 2tb) but left runs slow as fuck while the other is fine. It runs slow randomly when doing anything, watching a video or playing a song then randomly it stutters and the whole PC is slow. I formatted it and while doing windows update (before installing anything else) it was running slow too.
Thanks for the advice btw. I upgraded my CPU and case yesterday from a 3900x to a 5800x3d. My CPU temps for some reason went from 60degrees at idle on the 3900x to now 25 to 30 degrees at idle with the 5800x3d. Not sure what happened there.Also don't use the mx cleaner wipes. Those things stunk my entire house out and the smell still hasn't gone away.GPU has some serious sag but I got a little brace thing ordered. Saw some serious improvements on my hyper porn modded titty physics skyrim so yeah this was pretty good.Also I made the pipes go down because someone said it was bad to go up for some reason.Thanks frens.
>>91110420the sata port you're plugging it into is possibly SATA IIwhat are the specs of the slow PC?have you tried plugging the slow SSD into your good PC and crystal disking it?
>>91110123>I think in long term vram amount is important for me ( for 3d and vr). + i only have 1080p monitor.I never used VR so I have no idea.>is MSI a good brand?Honestly I think all of the big partner brands are good, avoiding the shady AliExpress brands. EVGA was arguably the best but since they cut off with Nvidia I'd say PNY for best value and Gigabyte for best performance. I became a PNY fanboy ever since I entered enthusiast territory, their cards are surprisingly very solid for overclocking, you can match the performance of a Gigabyte model that's considerably more expensive and still maintain sub80 temps.
>>91110388I imagine it's only going to be used on low quality cp videos. Just like loli diffusion.
>>91110426>60 degrees at idlebro... you should have repasted that if that was the caseyeah nothing beats just using tissue and dry wiping thermal paste.>Also I made the pipes go down because someone said it was bad to go up for some reason.your friend misunderstood a gamers nexus video.the problem was that the pump block on AIOs mounted incorrectly would be above the top of the radiator which would mean the bubble would end up in the pump instead of the radiator, which means the pump would "run dry" and wear out faster and make a lot of noise otherwise.it was probably fine the way it was but it likely looks neater with hoses at the bottom.
>>91110426why are windowed cases so gay? zoomers ruined the PC case industry, almost impossible to get solid side panel cases thank's to redditor normies showing off their ugly aquarium ARGB builds
>>91110343>for Chrome and Edge
>>91110456The slow PC is old, z97 with a i7-4790k but I don't use it for intensive stuff, it was running fine then 1 day slow as shit for no reason. I plugged the SSD into 2 other sata ports on the motherboard and changed the sata cable but that made no difference. I haven't tried taking the slow as shit SSD which is a C drive on 1 PC and putting it on the other one, should I then run CrystalMark? I take it that would at least show if it's the SSD or another part causing it?
out of these two fan configurations, which is less retarded?is there a better config for these fans? case is this thing: https://www.silentiumpc.com/en/product/aquarius-x70w/
>>91110495>bro... you should have repasted that if that was the caseIt's funny because they were 50 when I first put the system together then when I repasted it they went up to 60, then I repasted again and it was still at 60. I googled it and apparently lots of people were saying the 3900x had an idle temp around 50 to 60 so I just left it.>the problem with the pumpOh okay that makes sense. Seems a bit quieter with the pipes this way. Not sure if that's the case though.
>>91110497Caring about case design is just as gay as rainbow hardware. I wish the industry focused exclusively on performance and didn't care at all about cosmetic shit, like designing a fighter jet but with PC parts.
>>91110497https://pcpartpicker.com/products/case/#sort=price&B=1 >>91110503>z97yeah you might have it plugged into SATA II and the slowness is unrelated.>should I then run CrystalMark? I take it that would at least show if it's the SSD or another part causing it?yes that is what it will reveal, if its the SSD it will still be slow.
>>91110509Just remove the side panel when playing turbo graffixx games
>>91110539solid side panel cases are the definition of not caring about case design.also, it's a bonus if you don't want to light up your room with stupid GPU RGB lights that can only turned off by installing bloatwareeverything else you said was less gay and correct.
>>91110509Just don’t have a fan in the top right. Block off that section if you’re really autistic. Also artic p14 is the best performing 140mm fan afaik.
>>91110541>plugged into SATA IIDoubt, like I said it was running perfectly fine then 1 day it was not and to check I tried plugging it into 2 other different ports which made zero difference. But I will try the other thing though.
>>91110541>https://pcpartpicker.com/products/case/#sort=price&B=1most of these are dated and old cases. but if you look at case releases from the past year or so, barely any solid versions. it's as if tempered gay glass it the norm now.
>>91108589they dont have to try anymore.
>>91110569>GPU RGB lights that can only turned off by installing bloatwareGet OpenRGB. It's open source lightweight RGB control. Can turn on or off what you want. Including peripherals.
>>91110605>OpenRGBthanks based anon. I owe you a beer.
>>91110509???Two front and two in the back.
>>91110247is form factor of psu's the same? Can you recommend a good psu model for 3090? Is this that important to upgrade cpu too?
>>91110582like I said, it is possibly an issue unrelated to the SSD>>91110594https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4svdnQ/fractal-design-torrent-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-c-tor1a-05
Solid side panels are obsolete now that itx cases have shown us that a mesh side panel with a side-mounted horizontal aio above the gpu is the optimal config for full system temps. Atx cases are just dinosaur shit in general sadly. Idk of any except the fractal north that allows this.
>>91110649>https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4svdnQ/fractal-design-torrent-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-c-tor1a-05yeah, fractal released at least 7 variants of the torrent and it includes a solid version, that is is always out of stock, I mean the solid version.solid side panels are so popular that there is no fucking stock in Europe since last october or so. People want solid side panels. why do case manufacturers hate it so much?
>>91110637this case only has space for one 120 mm fan in the rear>>91110554>>91110575k thx, I'll compare 2 top exhausts vs 1 top exhaust
>>91110632No problem bro.https://getfancontrol.com for fanshttps://safing.io for DNS firewall etcAll open source.
>>91110677That's the same you bongo, no one puts a fan in the back below the GPU. Out of 2x back, one is always on top.
trying againdoes this look brown or black on your monitors?
>>91110663>Atx cases are just dinosaur shit in general sadly.true but its the only standard we have, Intel tried BTX which inverted the motherboard so the cpu was at the bottom and PCIe slots were at the top with the power supply but naturally because everyone already has ATX it never caught on.
Is this MSI specific level of retardation or all motherboard manufacturers that stupid? By default my motherboard came with CPU core voltage set to auto which went as high as 1.225v. This resulted in my 13600k thermal throttling even with an Arctic Freezer II 360 and lowered performance. Max CPU package power reached around 245w in Cinebench. I manually lowered it to 1.135v for now and>CPU package power went down to 171w from 245w>max temp went down to 78 from 100 and throttling>Cinebench score improved and is now more in line with review scores of the CPUAnd this wasn't even the highest default profile in BIOS, I wonder what it'd do if I set it to "water cooler" with the 4096w power limit. I'll try to do some OC later now that I have some headroom.
>>91110670>People want solid side panels. why do case manufacturers hate it so much?i thought i wanted solid side panels, i really did. but once given the option i went for a glass panel. why? mainly because solid panels look boring. i've used them all my life and they're just boring now. nothing interesting about looking at a brick.i don't even use any RGB or have a particularly showy system. but it's just nice to properly cablemanage and have a clean looking system. it's also nice to be able to see the inside of your case without having to open it. you can see the dust build up if there is any, you can see which fans are having what issues, so on and so forth.
>>91110727it's a deep deep black on my Samsung G7
>>91110727The larger part is dark brown, a stripe to the right is black. Actually more noticeable on my high refresh TN monitor than on my IPS one.
>>91110727Black but with like a pixel-wide lighter line on the bottom
>>91110760I'm sorry anon but only ASUS motherboards are good. if you by any other brand you will have many problems.ASUS sells lots of shit hardware, but their mobos are top tier.MSI mobos suck donkey ass.
>>91110803fuck off with this brandfaggotry
>>91110343When will Nvidia release that "mod support" bullshit ? The one where they showed off Elder Scrolls 3 ?
>>91110727Mostly very dark brown with a black strip to the right and a thin black + gray strip at the bottom. I'm on an LG OLED so not really a monitor.
>>91110760My MSI board didn't do that, but it did set ram speed to 2400 mhz and I had to manually set it to 3200
Just got an ssd, though i see ne mounting scews with it. What's up with that? I mounted three disks 5 years ago and i remember having screws for all of them. Was it with the case?
>Have to pay several thousands to make ugly games with shit gameplay playable I never understood this
>>91110880they come with motherboard
>>91110880fans and cases come with screws, pretty much nothing else does.SSDs have no moving parts so just zip tie it somewhere if you don't have any spare screws
>>91110862>it did set ram speed to 2400 mhz and I had to manually set it to 3200oh that one's normal, all boards do that as far as I know. 3200 mhz XMP is technically overclocking and you're not actually guaranteed it will work with all mobo/RAM combos even if both technically support it. 2400mhz is a jedec profile and it will always work.
Should I tell them about the typo?
>>91110928yes, they'll send you a free gpu
>>91110928americans are disgusting

>>91110860>>91110779yeah that black stuff is my cutting it badly, is it brown like leather shoes brown or dark chocolate/shit?
>>91110760Stock voltages are pretty much the same across all motherboard brands because intel dictates the default spec. There's a lot of voltage headroom because the chip must be stable in all sorts of loads including y-cruncher and prime95, and have an additional voltage margin on top of that to account for temps, aging, and operating environments etc.
>>91110760All boards do that. Intel and AMD but Intel moreso have told mobo makers to stop cranking up voltages but they never listen it's what their chinese buyers want.
>>91110727black on one monitor brown on the other lol. How the fuck does it work?
>ram timings are actually importantwhy did nobody tell me?

>>91111204yeah in that case by the looks of it its having problems with read speed so its probably the controller failing.do you have HWInfo64? put it back in its system and run HWinfo64 sensor info, and screencap the SSD Smart data.also copy down the s/n and email Crucial to see if its still under warranty.
>>91111268oh, also before you do any of that.get some disk cloning software and make an image.

>>91111066Only on AMD.
>>91110509The one on the left is better.I would make a change though. Change the CPU side to intake and the CPU fans cooler to intake direction. This way both GPU and CPU are getting fresh air and the hot air being exhausted out the top.Otherwise the CPU cooler will be sucking in hot air from the gpu on the way out.

Should I wait to buy a GPU? They're still way above MSRP. Is there anything that might cause them to fall?
>>91111777yes>>91111785Are you a gambling man? If enterprise demand is significantly down and Nvidia/AMD have excess fab capacity from TSMC at lower prices. They MIGHT go down. We're getting to the point where 4090s are pretty easy to get at MSRP so I feel like we're close to something at least..
>>91111785Do you actually need a GPU?
do you actually need a computer?
When is AMD going to announce their midrange cards? NVidia is already down to the 70 series and only has a couple models left to release.I need to know if I should buy a replacement for my 5700 XT now, I can Just Wait they're less than 6 months away.
>>91111841do I actually want a computer?
>>91111654The Dark Rock Pro 4 blows air the other way lmao
>>91111841No, you can also use the computer at your local library.
>>91111853nobody knowsprobably summer at the earliesti got tired of waiting and got a 6000 card, if the 7600/7700 are good and reasonably priced i might sell it and get one

>>91111914chimney effect? wtf.
>>91111914Not sure it fits, look at the spacing on the left side of the heatsink. Maybe a slim arctic fan would fit.
>>91111899Sweet mother of christ who is this
>>91111938wat>>91111940no i mean flip the fans so it'll blow in the other direction, you don't need to flip the whole cooler
>>91111957The fan needs to be on that side of the heatsink to pull...
>>91111957you mean that heat will rise to the top and exit through top fans
>>91110509Two intakes at the front (three if another will fit above) two exhausts at the top left.The one in the top right (regardless if it's in or out) will at best do nothing and probably make airflow worse.You don't have to fill every fan slot - they have so many to let waterfags decide where to put their radiators.
>>91111927They slot in the $500 and less market where Nvidia has exactly 0 products.I just want 3070 (ti) performance with more VRAM for $400-450 because the 5700 XT struggles a bit with VR.
>>91111803I can wait a little longer, but I've been waiting since the damn 30 series came out. It's getting ridiculous. Hopefully I have something by the summer. >>91111823Yeah, to build a PC.
I'm losing my mind.I went full retard and updated my BIOS - PC wouldn't POST anymore. Bought a new CPU that was compatible with the BIOS version I just put on but it still wouldn't POST. I assumed I must have bricked the motherboard at some point so I bought a new motherboard that is compatible with this new CPU and has a flashback function.Still won't POST.Tried it out the box, tried flashing the last listed supported BIOS for my CPU, tried the latest BIOS version. None worked.Tried removing the battery several times between checks.Tried two USBs to flash with (yes they are MBR and FAT32).Tried flashing, switching off, resetting the battery and then switching on again.Tried no RAM, one stick of RAM.Tried with and without GPU (don't have integrated graphics but I can hear nothing changes even without the GPU in to check).All SATA cables removed from motherboard.Pins and plugs all in properly and in the right places (unless it matters which way around power SW and CH go).The BIOS flashback is going through and succeeding (light flashes for a while then goes off).Current mobo is ASUS TUF Gaming B550M-PLUS - no doubt I have the right one for BIOS versions.Current CPU is Ryzen 3 4100.In case I'm wrong, when I say no POST, I mean power is supplied but nothing happens. Fans come on, USB devices simply light up and I hear no beep codes. It makes the same sounds it made everytime I booted it up for the past few years but nothing comes up on the display.I've checked so many places and guides and support and I'm sure there's something real fucking stupid I'm missing. Help.
>>91112046Let me ask you. Where is your monitor plugged in?
>>91111841I need a computer, but I definitely do not need the amount of computers that I currently have.
>>91112093Not sure what you mean.Plugged into my main power, connected to my GPU.Nothing is working for any peripherals either, so it's not just my monitors (tried both).
>>91112115love the contrast, wish more mobos had this scheme
>>91112046>the latest BIOS version>Ryzen 3 4100Have you checked if an older BIOS supports it? I think they dropped support for rarer chips due to space constraints on the BIOS chip.
>>91112145I have twice now flashed on the "last validated" BIOS for my CPU and it doesn't work either.
>>91112144Even the back looks good
>>91112046the motherboard has diagnostic LEDs that come on during boot check what they indicate
Is it bad that I only have 2 sticks of RAM but hwinfo64 says the ram is in quad channel?
>>91112250You can't have quad channel on normal desktop platforms at all, ignore it.
>>91112194Yeah I missed that. DRAM light is on. Guess I should just try all my sticks one more time. I probably fucked up the slots.
Is it okay to use a single PCIe cable (2x 6+2) to power my 3060 ti? Keep reading it’s better to use two separate cable but it seems like overkill to me for a 225w card
>get thermal paste in a hole bunch of the holes on my am4 board>try to use tweezers to get it out but just cram it further in the holes>everything is a mess>put the chip in anyway>it worksWelp.
>>91112296The double cable thing is for 8+8 or even 8+6, 6+6 is fine.
>>91112312every single stick of ddr5 is technically dual channel
>>91112250It’s normal for ddr5 - word length was halved and there are 2 channels per DIMM as a result.
>>91112328So is it a non issue? I downloaded hwinfo saw that and just thought it was weird, I haven't really had any problems with the computer yet.
>>91112296A single PCI-E plug on PSU side is rated at 300W but on the GPU side it's only rated for 150W. If you have two separate cables there is no reason to use single daisy chained cable instead. But you won't damage anything either way.
>>91112194>>91112282Right, so none of my sticks work even when put in the recommended slot.Turns out, none of my RAM sticks are listed on the memory support for my motherboard. If it's not there does that really mean they won't work or that they just didn't test them? Because my model numbers are close just not the same.I guess I don't mind buying new RAM just to see if it works. It's not much more money than I've already spent but is that probably the problem then?
>>91112010>The one in the top right (regardless if it's in or out) will at best do nothing and probably make airflow worse.I second this. Just blows cold air on my machine. So leave it at 30%.>>91112115Why is there so many on/off switches and a freaking power button?
>>91112511>Why is there so many on/off switches and a freaking power button?Not him, but it's extreme OC motherboard. You don't put those in cases most of the time.But we used to have majority those features on entry boards in the past.pic related sub 100$ board.
>>91112346The ram being quad channel is a good thing.
My monitor has finally started to show the dreaded blue line of death, what monitor should I get.GPU is 5700XT and CPU is 3700X

>>91112659LG 27GL83A-B or Gigabyte M27Q
>>91111613Did that, it showed 0 which means trim is enabled>>91111268Still haven't tried HWInfo64 but I put the drive into the original PC and ran CrystalDiskMark. It was running slow as fuck during the test and from pic related you can see disk is at 100% in Task Manager which is strange because using the software on my good PC and the disk usage doesn't go above 40% but that is a better PC so maybe it's that. I edited the results of the CrystalDiskMark in and now the speeds are slower, 300 something instead of 400 but it's still better than 200 something. I assumed the Disk running at 100% had something to do with it so on the slow PC I opened up powershell and did the same thing again:>Optimize-Volume -DriveLetter F -ReTrim -Verbose in admin powershellI redid the CrystalDiskMark test, the Disk usage in Task manager did not go to 100%, it stayed at 50% or below which means my PC wasn't being slow but the read and write speeds from the test are the same, in the 300s
>>91112755m27q has better picture quality, by a lotbut its BGR layout, so text rendering will be worse in some appsif you do go with m27q, use BetterClearTypeTuner to switch hinting to BGR
>>91112489more likely the RAM is broken instead of not supportedideally you'd get a friend and test your components with your system
>>91112911I have 3 sticks. The first two were working perfectly fine for years until I bricked the first motherboard. The 3rd I bought new because I was going to upgrade anyway. I had briefly installed it into the first motherboard but never got to use it. It booted fine though.The odds that all 3 are faulty all of a sudden seems unlikely, doesn't it? Although it seems unlikely they aren't compatible either even if they aren't on the list.
>>91112978If the bios update fails then the boot process getting stuck on Dram is possible. Stupidly I just saw one of the "fixing someones broken gaming pc" video where some dude tried updating the bios but got a black screen. Did everything as suggested, fans would run, it would turn on but just no screen. Then saw the Dram led on and switched to new ram, still nothing worked. Even with a new cpu ti didn't work. Ended up being the mobo being partly bricked due to the update. My suggestion try with different ram, maybe try the cpu but it could be the mobo that's the culprit.
>>91113149>the mobo that's the culpritIt's brand new. Still a possibility, I suppose.I had already tried different RAM sticks.The BIOS update isn't failing as far as I can see. The light flashes for a while and then goes off as it should. A failure in flash in supposed to result in a solid light staying on which never happened.
