  1. I5's have no real place at the moment. Games are using more than 4 threads now (newest) and a ryzen 5 with 12 threads is cheaper than a 7600k i seapped from 4790k to my ryzen 1700 and have only just seen better fps in games due to recent optimisation and bios updates. It's still a good chip, but remember the newer platforms offer more than just a cpu
  2. if you change the tubes will also need to swap the fittings. You cant use flex fittings on rigid tubing
  3. Read the thread in my signature
  4. increase the voltage to 1.275v and check temps
  5. why would you SLI and not game? If its for editing, I would still use the i7 Yes there will be a bottleneck, but you will still see a big improvement in frame rates. The better answer overall would be to sell the 1070 throw in the $400 and grab a 1080ti = yes it will still bottleneck slightly but you wont have the SLI draw backs of extra power usage and SLI support in games and full SLI utilisation - SLI is good I'm a supporter of it, but a single powerful card is still a better solution
  6. Looks like PLED light, seems you aren't getting CPU ready light (next to it) I would at this point reseat the CPU and report back how it goes
  7. Absolute nonsense. You should have a look around at the recent Agesa updates that AMD has implemented - remember Ryzen was a brand new architecture, everytime a new architecture is released, there are these kind of problems. X99 was the same and so was previous iterations from both AMD and Intel. My ram on Ryzen 1700 posts 3200Mhz XMP so I don't know what you are basing this on - if it's on release that's bad for the reasons above. The motherboard isn't getting power if there is no LEDs lit up. Check all power connectors, 24 pin to right of board and 8 pin in upper left. If you can, could you post a picture of the inside of the PC so we can see if there's anything not plugged in

    Ok, so according to India prices (I would check that 1080 price locally it seems very cheap for India) PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor (₹17777.00 @ Amazon India) CPU Cooler: Deepcool - CAPTAIN 240 EX 153.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (₹7500.00 @ Amazon India) Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AX370-Gaming K5 ATX AM4 Motherboard (₹11515.45 @ Amazon India) Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (₹9212.23 @ Amazon India) Storage: ADATA - Premier SP550 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (₹6399.00 @ Amazon India) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (₹3670.00 @ Amazon India) Video Card: Zotac - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB AMP!

    To be fair I just went with the 1500 USD part, didn't even realise PCP had an India section

    so? "Hi, I am going to build a PC and my budget is INR 100,000 (USD 1,500). "

  13. 7800X is likely gonna be the better chip - but at a cost - probably $300+ for release boards and $599 for the CPU and then you need (prefer) quad channel ram so another ~$250 so $1100 vs ($200 X370 + $300 CPU and $150 ram ) $650 Edit - Was thinking 7820X Still $379 CPU gonna be close to $1k Money aside the 7800X will probs be slightly ahead in games much like the 6900K now probably 7% at a guess. If you are likely to use things that utilise all the cores, the Ryzen will win
  14. Check the thread in my signature about Ryzen ram. If you aren't overclocking (I don't know why you aren't as 3.7ghz on 1.25v on air is easily achieved) then I would go with a 1700X for auto boosting to higher speeds
  15. Have a look as the Asrock Taichi AX370 - that and the crosshair are pretty much the best X370 boards at the moment. K5 is decent, but the K7 is flagship so bios updates are slow for the K5.
