  1. Extra performance would mean faster read and writes for file transfers but that is mostly for content creators such as editors that need faster speeds. For gaming just get the cheapest one you can find, the difference will be a few seconds while loading maps or levels
  2. What are you using your PC for? I would just buy the cheapest m.2 I could find in the wanted size unless you really need the extra performance
  3. I recently upgraded to a Asus ROG B450F Gaming motherboard. I used to run a EVGA z97 Stinger and with that motherboard I could plug in my speakers and headphones at the same time in the back of the MB and switch between them with software. Is there a way I could do this with my motherboard? I dont want to use the front panel connector because Im using an amp for my headphones. Any help is appreciated
  4. Thank you, that sollertia res is exactly what I was looking for
  5. Im planning a watercooling build on a Corsair Crystal 460X but the reservoir I currently own (XSPC Photon 270) is too big and it only fits if I install it horizontally on the top of the case. That works but it covers too much of the motherboard so I dont want to use it. The easiest option I have is getting a new acrylic tube (10mm) to use on a D5 pump res combo I have (Bitspower) but that would mean having the res under the graphics card on the bottom of the case and I dont think that would look good. Im wondering if there is a res I could buy that is small and looks good that I could install maybe in the fan grill (120mm only) at the back of the case or maybe in front of the graphics card on the ventilation grill Any recommendation for good looking small reservoirs are welcome Hopefully under 80 dollars US
  6. Can't check it, I get no image in the screen and the BIOS version is not stated anywhere in the manual or the box Yes, they are That would take too long, I can just take it to the store so they do it but it's a 2 hour drive. Trying to avoid that
  7. Sounds like your ISP is blocking the websites. Have you tried accessing the sites with your phone on your wifi. Try that and then with your data, if it only works on data, it's time for a VPN
  8. I just bought an Asus ROG B450-F Gaming motherboard and a Ryzen 3600. I can't even boot into the BIOS and the DRAM troubleshooting light lights up. It needs a BIOS update but I don't have another cpu to boot with. It there a way to flash the BIOS without the cpu? I want to save myself a trip to the store so they can do it for me. The MB and CPU are brand new, and the ram is working properly
  9. Fortnite has been awful since the start of season x. Performance has been terrible. I don't think it's you, we just have to wait for a new nvidia driver or a fortnite patch I guess. I have the same problem on a 1080.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I will be going for the Corsair Crystal 460X Now all I have to do is start cleaning rads and blocks
  11. This is our version of PC Part Picker https://www.solotodo.com/computer_cases?ordering=offer_price_usd& Wasnt sure if I could post the link in the original post.
  12. Hi, I have been using a Mini ITX setup for about 5 years now, I have a Caselabs S3 (RIP). At first I ran it with a Radiator pedestal with dual 45mm 240mm radiators to cool a 4690k and a 980 (at the time). Currently Im running the S3 without the pedestal cooling a GTX 1080 with one of the 240mm rads and the cpu with air. Its time for an upgrade though. Im going back to ATX and I have a Caselabs SM8 I could use, but since Caselabs no longer exists and my case has been modded I would need spare parts to make it look decent for the new build, but thats not a choice so I need a new case My new build will consist of a Ryzen 5 3600 and the 1080 and I want to cool both with water. I need a case that can fit the following Either dual 45mm 240mm radiators Or one 45mm 240mm and a 60mm 360mm radiator Or maybe I could get away with just using the 360mm rad for both the CPU and GPU The reservoir that I have is the XSPC Photon 270 and a D5 pump but Im not married to that reservoir I could get something smaller I want the case to be a mid tower The only other feature I want on a case is a Glass side panel. PS: No Fractal Design recommendations please, those are not available in my country
  13. How about an ASRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4. A lot cheaper than the ROG one and has the features I need. Paired with a Ryzen 5 3600 it amount to almost the same price as the 3400G and ROG board
  14. Thanks for the replies. I think that I will put up my hardware up for sale (minus the 1080) since I have a spare power supply and case to make a nice bundle and use the money to upgrade platform to Ryzen. Does this setup make sense? I have been out of the hardware loop for a while Ryzen 5 3400G ROG Strix B450-F Gaming (There are cheaper options but looks matter since it will be a custom loop) Crucial Ballistix Sport AT 2x8GB Crucial P1 500BG Should I spend more on the CPU or is this good? Plus the 1080 I own and I have a Gold certified Seasonic 850w power supply I dont mention budget because hardware pricing here in Chile is all over the place. It makes no sense
  15. Hi, earlier this year I bought a GTX 1080 with a waterblock, to upgrade from my 980. I currently have a i5 4690K currently running on air at 4.1GHz. It used to be running at 3.7GHz but I noticed that my frames in games like Apex and Battlefield were not up to what's expected of the 1080. (I'm running a gsync 160hz monitor) Is my processor not up to par with the 1080? (full specs on profile) Im trying to keep this platform for as long as I can because Im still on DDR3 so a full upgrade would be costly. I also would like get a new NVME SSD, which would mean getting a new MB, but that I could get second hand for cheap. There is a ASUS Maximus VI Extreme I have my eye on which supports my processor and could use the drive with a PCI e adaptor. Would it be a waste to just change motherboard and keep the CPU or should I just take the hit and upgrade platforms. The only intensive load on my PC is gaming and the CPU and GPU will be watercooled with a custom loop.
