  1. Screens will never be bigger than 32" at 21:9. It also needs to attach to a wooden desk, and I'd love to physically bolt or screw the mount into the desktop. There is quite a few to choose from on Amazon but having zero experience with these things I'm not sure if I'm gonna get suckered into buying something just because it's cheap, or if I'll over purchase something just because it's expensive. Any tips?
  2. Thanks guys, what actually is a RANK though? Is that physical circuitry? Or is it like a classification of memory?
  3. Would you mind explaining that a bit further. Although I have built computers for many years I don't have much modern experience with overclocking.
  4. It seems to be functioning properly at 2933mhz. I think maybe I'll just leave it there. I just wanted to get near 3000mhz as that's what I had before but in 16GB.
  5. Is it the DRAM voltage I want to have a 1.35v? That is what the ram sticks say the XMP should operate at. DRAM Voltage (CH A/B) is the setting I'm referring to.
  6. I've just updated to the latest bios which now lets me boot up Linux Mint instead of just halting during the start up process, but when I enable XMP it hands during boot. Something about CPU#X not responding over and over again, and the numbers change representing to the threads. Should I try to manually overclock the memory until it halts during boot and then back it down one notch?
  7. Currently the gtx 980 can't quite handle this. It dips into the 30s at some points during big battles. I'm curious, what is the fastest GPU I can pair with the 6700 before it's being bottlenecked by the CPU at 4k. Thanks in advance!
  8. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#c=125,124,133&sort=price&page=1 That's pretty much what I'm working with. I see boards for $70/$80 that don't have VRM heat sinks and I see $100~ boards that don't have VRM heat sinks.
  9. Can you give me an example of a low quality board that I should avoid and what makes it low quality?
  10. I am thinking about building a small cloud server. I would like to put an r7-1700 (already have it) in it. 1. How important is it to have an B3/450 chipset if you don't intend overclock? 2. How important is it to have a VRM heatsinks/cooling if you don't intend to overclock? 3. And finally, can you still use XMP on A320? Basically I just want to know if it's worth the extra $50++ in my scenario.
  11. Thanks. I'll take all of that into account.
  12. So I've got the DeepCool Castle 240RGB on a Ryzen 3600 inside of an h500p-mesh case. Running Prime95 the CPU hovers around 60c. This is all threads and cores at 100%, each core averaging 4150mhz. It will run like this, nice and steady as you would expect, when about 10 minutes into the test, all of a sudden it will just shoot up to 80c+ and then shortly after that it auto shuts down. What could be causing this? The only thing I can think of is that I'm using shitty thermal paste. The AIO came with paste itself but I'm guessing this cooler is really old as the paste basically came out like rubber out of the tube, it wasn't pastey at all and couldn't be spread. So I went to London Drugs and got some of their thermal paste and it's pretty runny. Almost watery. I've got some Noctua thermal paste on the way. I still don't understand how the thermal paste could be the issue though. Pump is steady at 2500rpm, both 120mm fans on the rad are steady at 1800rpm. Both fans are running off of one fan header, connected to a splitter.
  13. So this power lead coming from the PSU has a 6pin+2 on it, and another 6pin+2 at the end of it. That is OK? Its a 750w corsair.
