  1. It's either the motherboard or the CPU, and since the USB ports aren't working, you're probably right that it's the motherboard. running the system into the ground should be okay, I have a hard time imagining it killing your GPU or anything. You could get a new motherboard, but ehhhh, for slightly over the $200 replacement cost you could basically buy a better CPU+RAM+Mobo combo. if you run the system into the ground, you can reuse the cooler on intel systems (but liquid coolers don't really last super long, I wouldn't recommend it), you can reuse the SSD, the PSU is probably due for replacement but you could still reuse it depending on the wattage. If I were you, I would just get a new CPU+Mobo+RAM. Ryzen 3600 + a B550 board + 16GB DDR4 is $330, and even getting a Ryzen 3100X would be a big performance jump.

  2. Have you tried just completely uninstalling and re-installing minecraft? Also, what's your render distance set at? I get lag at anything above 20 chunks.
  3. Why specifically X470? B550 seems to be the better choice in basically every metric. Those two are both very high-end great boards, you can't go wrong with either. (Personally I'd pick the gigabyte because I like the look better, but check the motherboard tier list in my signature if you want to know the VRM performance of each)
  4. Personally I'd get the corsair CV, it's a good midrange PSU that will still likely last a long time.
  5. I'd go with the CX550M (Gray label) unless you plan on powering something crazy like a 1080Ti or RTX 3080, in which case you'd probably need more wattage.
  6. Whichever one is cheapest and isn't a complete no-name brand.
  7. the 9600K will have no problem with the faster RAM, but you need a Z-series motherboard to get the ram going above 2666Mhz
  8. What slider did you drag up? As long as it wasn't voltage, you should be fine. Have you completely reset the BIOS by clearing CMOS? Remove the circular coin-style battery on the motherboard for 5 minutes (while the pc is unplugged of course) and then re-insert and boot the PC
  9. Since your laptop doesn't have a display input, then the answer is no. You could try to do screen mirroring, but latency is horrible on that. You could also download bluestacks and emulate the games on your PC.
  10. It's not worth it, You'll probably just get in trouble and it's hard to circumvent admin permissons. However, you can if they have the BIOS unlocked (which they probably do) Best way I can think of is to use something like a password reset usb stck (like the one linus showed here: *You can also make and download your own without buying it. another option is to just get a bootable OS on a USB stick (like linux) and run that from the BIOS, but that won't give you great performance for Minecraft.
  11. 4c/4t is still fine for most things, although it might not age super well in the future. Most games are still highly single-threaded and with that GPU he won't really be bottlenecked at all. I'd say go for the Haswell system since it's cheaper and you want the H310 mobo.
  12. It probably doesn't have any partitions on it. If you want to use it as a windows boot device, you're fine. It will create partitions when installing windows. if you want to use it as storage (or just to see it to make sure it's working) go to "Create and format hard disk partitions" in windows, right click on the drive, and create a new simple volume.
  13. If you have two 3.0 headers, this would work: https://www.amazon.com/JoyReken-Internal-Motherboard-Key-Adapter/dp/B08GYFCNK9/ If you don't something like this would give you an extra internal 3.0 header (along with lots of outside 3.0 and 3.1 stuff) https://www.amazon.com/SupaHub-Expansion-Expanding-Internal-Connector/dp/B07R8SLRWS/ref=sr_1_8?crid=3VZRDC8JOAYKS&dchild=1&keywords=pcie+usb+3.1+card&qid=1601754898&sprefix=pcie+usb+%2Caps%2C227&sr=8-8
  14. Are you sure the HDD can't be mounted the other way? If it's on a sled, try inserting the whole sled the other way?
