  1. i'd upgrade the PSU, fully modular is nice, and most pre-builts don't have that. it helps with cable management. 
    plus you should make sure you get enough wattage out of it. (obviously it works, but how much headroom do you have?)


    then maybe i'd upgrade the GPU. 


    the rest looks good

    I need something for a stream, I don't want the game sounds to get picked up by my mic. The thing is with earbuds inside my ears, it feels really weird to talk, can even hear myself breathing etc. Normally I would just wear a headset, but it's pretty hot in my room and only going to get hotter in the next couple of months. So I'm looking for something super lightweight and comfortable, but doesn't actually go in the ear. I don't want it to have a microphone, and bonus points if it's wireless. Can anyone recommend me something that ticks the boxes? Thank you.

    game sounds should never be picked up by the microphone anyway. 
    whatever software you use for the microphone and game recording should filter out any game audio with AEC, automatic echo cancelation.

    Im starting to buy pc parts for my first build my mobo, gpu, and ram all have rgb (what parts dont tho) and my gpu and ram and rgb strips can all sync but i dont know about my mobo i checked the website and its only asrock polychrome and razer chroma but the reason om still asking here is because sometimes there compatible with programs they dont mention i hope it can sync with msi mystic light because all the parts besides maybe my mobo can use msi mystic light (the mobo is the ASRock Steel Legend)

    it's generally best to follow what your motherboard supports, rather than the attachments

    My graphics card is Palit GeForce GT 640 1GB, and it should normally run at PCIe 3.0 x16, but when I look into BIOS it says: PCIe 3.0 x16 @ PCIe 1.0 x16. 


    In Windows 10, GPU-Z says: PCI x16 3.0 @ PCIe x16 1.1. 


    My PC:

    1. Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master (Latest BIOS version: F11c)

    2. CPU: Intel i7-9700K

    3. 32GB DDR4-2666


    Is there a way to make it run at PCIe 3.0 x16?



    run the render test in GPU-Z. it's right by the info box.

    I can no longer connect via ethernet because for some reason my pc can't get a proper IP configuration. I've tried resetting my network settings, reinstalling drivers, and even making sure I get the specific ethernet drivers for my asrock motherboard from the website. I have even disabled fast-boot, I have restarted my PC after every single thing I've listed and none of this stuff seems to fix it. Not even manually changing the IP address fixes it. Any suggestions for stuff I can do?

    unless you know IPV4 i wouldn't set it manually (know your gateway and subnet mask?) 
    what's it do when set back to DHCP?

    I Have a Ryzen 5 2600X CPU with the default cooler on it. It has served me great and I've had zero issues until recently. Recently I've been getting CPU fan errors whenever i boot up, and once in a blue moon my PC will shut down entirely (i'm assuming due to throttling). This usually happens when playing GTA online. I have no clue what is causing this, as my fan is on tight, i am not overclocked and the CPU temps only reach ~70c max, even at high loads. I tried going into my BIOS to change my fan settings, but MSI click BIOS has been ****ing up too. It just locks up the second I enter the BIOS. i have no clue if this is due to it not recognizing my keyboard and mouse or if it's truly frozen. Any help with these issues would be appreciated.

    are you sure your fan is even spinning?


    update your BIOS first, and use a wired KB/mouse to make sure it works.

    Are you using parasec? 


    DId you try the audio troubleshooting guide? https://support.parsecgaming.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002700892-Unable-To-Hear-The-Game-You-re-Playing



    perhaps consider running  a DANTE service on both machines, then use audinate's DANTE controller to route them to each other. DANTE is a pretty big commercial multicast protocol. though, this is multicast, and may cause some network saturation issues if you're not careful.




    you can use either DANTE VIA or DANTE virtual soundcard.

    seriously though, take a look at the ports on the back, you will see white ports and black ports. Anything connected to the black ports would not be draining from the battery (If I recall correctly)

    this is heavily dependent on the UPS. 


    @OP run a test and see how the UPS performs when you unplug it's AC source. If you break anything it's probably only going to be the fuse inside the UPS. 

    make sure you have a spare fuse on hand...

    does your UPS not show instantaneous wattage draw? check out what monitoring features it might have, even if it's just an LED panel on the front. 

    If it has no monitoring tools you should probably get a better one. 



    that being said, you're going to probably significantly drain that UPS whenever you actually need it.

    Owhh. They are both static pressured fans.

    I see, so you haven't heard of them yet, well now you heard of them. :D 

    i saw that, the noiseblockers are -P marked, i figured for "pressure" but i didn't see that in the specs i found. 

    my reason for the NZXTs is probably stupid, but it's honest. 

  10. what do you mean "run hotter" with an AIO? the CPU will be hotter? the room will be hotter? 


    heat is going to come off of the block faster, and get to the fins faster, until the liquid reaches it's heat capacity. at that point it becomes more of a surface area game. liquid cooling has really always been a heat capacity (on startup) and surface area game. liquid setups generally keep your CPU cooler because they can even out your heat dissipation over a larger area. 


    that being said, new solid coolers are getting really good at dissipation, because they reach heat capacity so fast, and because really good ones are able to crap a lot of surface area into a small-ish package.
