    Budget AMD System

    looks good, i would say go for it.

    What CPU for gaming??

    There's only about 50 usd between the 2600 and 2600x any reason why I shouldn't pick 2600x?
  4. You forgot DeepCool, which a 240mm version of is what I have currently. They have the "Captain" and "Castle" series. http://www.gamerstorm.com/product/CPULIQUIDCOOLER/2018-10/1286_9932.shtml http://www.gamerstorm.com/product/CPULIQUIDCOOLER/2017-09/1286_6993.shtml The 360MM captain would be a direct upgrade from the 240 Captain EX White I currently have. And CoolerMaster has their 360mm MasterLiquids: http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-liquid-cooler/masterliquid-ml360-rgb-tr4/ http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-liquid-cooler/masterliquid-ml360r-rgb/ I did note in my post that while I do value performance over silence, I do still want to avoid my PC sounding like a running chainsaw. So loud relative to the average is okay, but I'm not gonna go into total nutso territory with it. Yeah that article is actually what I was thinking of when I mentioned GN, but it's just older now which is why I wanted a more current one. What always surprised me about that though is that the 280mm EVGA outperformed even 360mm rads. I have no issue getting a 280mm AIO if it performs better than a 360mm - have other reviews had the same results with it?
  5. OK, teeth pulling commence... only time I'm doing this. Do you have two monitors? if so try the other monitor for seeing bios options etc. Does the machine stay on, or bootloop, or nothing at all? what did you do EXACTLY to try and reset CMOS?

    Should i wait for the upcoming Graphics cards

    I doubt mining will have its full revival, but if this is true, now would be a great time to buy an RX570. I just bought one myself. It's actually really impressive. Also, buy used if your country has a decent used market with buyer protection etc.

    this seems to be a good choice to me
  8. Corsair and NZXT's rgb kits also use their own controllers and don't require mobo headers

    Will this rgb fan hub work?

    Will this rgb fan hub work?

    Corsair sells their fan hubs direct for 10 dollars
  11. I think all mainstream 360mm AIOs are rebranded Asetek, Corsair h150i Pro, Fractal S36, NZXT X72 are the ones I can think of. If I'm not missing anything, buy the one you like the most and replace the fans with something really extreme like blowie-matrons (isn't thtat what Linus keeps calling them?). Speaking of GN, not much new has happened since this: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3296-nzxt-kraken-x72-review-and-benchmark

    Sata III to sata II

    Yep. You'll just have the 3Gbps bandwidth limit to worry about, which isn't a big deal to be honest. 300MB/s is still plenty fast. Two of them in a RAID0 will also stack to 600MB/s fine.

    How do you use RGB?

    I have multiple profiles that I go through
  14. GeneXiS_X

    Which laptop should i buy?

    U - ULV: low power CPU, lower clock speed with 15W TDP (will pull higher than 15W under load) H - high performance CPU, higher clock speed with 45W TDP (will pull higher than 45W under load)
  15. 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
  16. 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 in games (~80C) but keep in mind this is with the CPU pulling 50-55W of power. 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. The only cooling related issue I can think about is heatsink issue - uneven core temps (well-known Clevo 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.
  19. 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?
  21. 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

    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
  24. 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. But I'm saying that some above-average noise really isn't going to bother me. I've always been a function-over-form type of person and I know that high-performance hardware tends to also be loud. Thanks.
  25. @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!
  26. 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
