    How do you use RGB?

    I have multiple profiles that I go through
  3. GeneXiS_X

    Which laptop should i buy?

    U - ULV: low power CPU, 15W TDP (will pull higher than 15W under load) H - high performance CPU, 45W TDP (will pull higher than 45W under load)
  4. for moving large files(like 4k/8k video etc) the samsung 970 evo/pro is usually quite useful because they have much higher read/write speeds than other nvme drives, but for gaming and other use then sata ssd is often enough
  5. Clevo PB51EF-G review (credits to Bob of All Trades)

    Highlights of this model:

    x2 USB C (one TB3)+x2 M.2 slots

    Removable battery

    GSYNC with MUX switch (can enable Optimus)

    Glass touchpad+fingerprint reader

    Support OCed RAM (max is 3200MHz if remembered correctly)

    Quite affordable for a 2070P laptop


    Build quality is good. Cooling is good, but it has airflow problem due to short rubber feets. Due to 2 shared heatpipes, the GPU can run a bit hot (~80C) but this is with the CPU on 50-55W. With undervolt, this model runs cool for a 15 inch 2070P laptop. Yes it has liquid metal applied but Clevo stock paste usually has OK quality (only issue they have IMO is heatsink issue).

    What CPU for gaming??

    Unless you are playing at 240hz (it will still do 240 in easier titles, it's just the more demanding stuff where intel pulls ahead), ryzen is always the better option for gamers in my opinion. It does everything the 8700 does, with two more cores. And you can overclock ryzen to bridge the small gap in performance. Not to mention the ryzen 2700/x are much more versatile, they are far stronger in streaming, rendering, video editing etc. But for just gaming, I wouldn't do any of those. As the people above have said, the 2600 is the best option. Here's an idea of what you could do with that 800 budget: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor $164.89 @ OutletPC Motherboard Gigabyte - B450 AORUS M Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $87.88 @ OutletPC Memory Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory $94.89 @ OutletPC Case Corsair - Carbide Series 275R (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case $48.99 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair - RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $89.99 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $506.64 Mail-in rebates -$20.00 Total $486.64 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-04-18 06:43 EDT-0400 I would also recommend getting some new faster ram, as ryzen benefits massively from fast ram. I also put in a new psu in there, in case you ever wanted to upgrade the gpu to something much more powerful down the line.

    Optane+SSD: Intel H10

    Well from the surface it seems to beat a lot of mid range NVME ssds, but I'll wait for the reviews.
  8. No worries, always happy to try and help other members. Especially nice and polite members such as yourself

    Which laptop should i buy?

    U or H?? What's that?
  10. depends on your motherboard(heatsink clearance etc). if you get decent enough fans push pull shouldnt make too much of a difference on a radiator

    NEW PSU Tier List

    sorry its in indonesian https://www.tokopedia.com/enterkomputer/antec-ea-gold-pro-550w-ea550g-pro-80-gold-modular?trkid=f=Ca0000L000P0W0S0Sh,Co0Po0Fr0Cb0_src=search_page=1_ob=23_q=antec+gold_po=10_catid=306&lt=/searchproduct - p2 - product

    Fair point, I didn't see that. Sorry
  13. I figured I'd just pop this question in the forum rather than looking through articles. Articles aren't giving datasheets to back-up their opinions and articles are often bought and paid for. I'd believe it from GamersNexus or something like that, but I know big places like TomsHardware are just paid reviews nowadays. So, I'm looking for the best performing AIO I can find. Size and noise level being no factor (well, 360mm being the limit because my case literally can't fit anything bigger... is there anything bigger than 360mm in the mainstream?). This is because very soon I plan on going all-out and finally delidding my 8700k and apply either kryonaut or conductonaut (still kinda on the fence on that one - I'm considering using Conductonaut under the IHS while using Kryonaut between the IHS and coldplate. For safety/spillage reasons and because I don't like the staining liquid metal inevitably does - especially if I end up with an AIO that has a naked copper coldplate, like my current one does. My understanding is that conductonaut makes the most difference between the die and IHS and much less difference anywhere else, so this is probably the format I'm going to choose. Die >> Conductonaut >> IHS >> Kryonaut >> Coldplate). May as well get an overkill cooler as well I figure. I may get the Rockit naked copper IHS replacement as well Noise level isn't really a consideration. I wear headphones all the time and I'm used to noisiness anyway as I do encode jobs and other CPU-intensive stuff all the time. So at this point I'm rather desensitised to fan noise. Of course that's to an extent, I'm not intending to put high-power server fans / "blowimatrons" in my system. Thanks.
  14. @paddy-stone Was just about to take it apart to get a better if something blew on it and noticed one of the fan power connector cables was hitting the blade. Potentially had one fan not running which would surely fit this issue. Never really checked the fans with them being under the GPU out of sight line and not thinking twice about it. I have CAM software running all the time though so I should have got a temp warning from it and i haven't touched the GPU in months before this so not really sure if it was an issue. Already posted on Graphics Cards, they actually referred me here to ask about putting the card in a friends rig. Definitely at that stage where I'm gonna work on another rig to have around for these situations. Relatively new to PC gaming and building in general but I love it! Thanks again for the help!
  15. Okay. It is an optiplex 3010, Core i5 3470, 4GB 1600mhz ram. No gpu. I reset the bios because there is a bios password I was trying to reset. @paddy-stone

    Dual Boot vs VM

    definetly dual boot, because then you can get the most performance out of linux/windows since is is a bit difficult and unstable when forwarding pci devices to a vm

    Motherboard PCIe problems w/ ssd

    But it says on the slot pysically written that it's a PCIe 3.0?
  18. Should i buy Radeon RX 570 now, or should i wait until GTX 1660 gets a little bit cheaper or Navi GPU to be released? I've heard that Bitcoin prices is going up again

    Sata III to sata II

    So as the title imples if I put a sata 3 ssd into a sata 2 port can I expect 3Gbps if that is the only bottleneck? my Dell servers are only sata II and I am putting an ssd into the DVD drive bays for a cache drive and there are optional sata II ports on both servers that I can utilize outside of the sas connections for the backplane

    The Cooler Master V1200 Platinum and Cooler Master V1200 Titanium are in the same god damn tier. How the hell is that going to help them at all? This isn't just directed at you, but people if you have nothing to add other than "Check the PSU tier list" then don't bother posting. What are your system specs? Those PSUs are expensive, and unless you're running multiple Radeon VIIs with a Threadripper 2990WX you probably don't need a 1200W PSU.

    Browser with best battery life?

    The integrated adblocker only replaces one extension, but even then: The adblocking is not adequate, for example it doesn't even block ads that disguise as normal posts. And this is the most control you can get with it (you can block specific elements thru right click but that's it, no way to add regional blocklists either, or to create exceptions): So you might as well just install uBlock Origin anyway.

    Anyone here in the Skilled Trades?

    open plan offices are sweat shops. I have seen some really hot and disgusting ones. Also they never put in a big enough fresh air fan. When i worked in air conditioning I visited almost every building in town. The lack of fresh air is something i cant stand. I have walked into offices and been blown away by how hot and stuffy the air is. Also in these places the workers often look like zombies. Not healthy at all.

    Motherboard PCIe problems w/ ssd

    Your M.2 slot only supports PCIe Gen 2 with 4 lanes, which is equivalent to PCIe Gen 3 with 2 lanes. Get a (not trash) PCIe to M.2 NVMe adapter, plug it into a PCIe Gen 3 (3.0) slot, install the M.2 SSD ofc and you're done.

    Browser with best battery life?

    It's not that good, far from it, but it's the easiest way to have everything. That gmail was actually part of another sentence that was leftover so you can ignore that. MY point is that you can have literally everything, on all platforms, with only 1 account. Most people don't care and don't need more than that. For most people you can't beat simplicity.

    Dual Boot vs VM

    Dual boot. VM is too restricted and the response is slow even on 8G RAM PC.
