    Balancing Work & Content Creation

    Hey everyone, Steve here from PC Budget Solutions and I am curious on how many of you handle this struggle. So to give you an overview of the problem. So I work in the cybersecurity space as well as run a Tech Channel. Unfortunately due to YouTube's stupid new rules of 2018, I cannot monetize anymore. So until I can get monetization back, I don't quite have enough cash flow from the business to pay someone. So what I often run into is, I may film 2-3 nights a week, shooting 1-3 videos each day, then edit them on Tuesdays or the weekends. But some of my videos come days or weeks after filming, so it is often tough to keep up and remember how I initially shot the video and wanted to edit it. How do you content creators who also work a 9-5 (more like an 8-6 for me), keep up with putting out good content? I already only sleep 5 hours a day

    970 vs R9 Fury

    The GTX 970 from my testing see here has the 970 barely edging out a 570. The Fury was a bit ahead of the 480/580 as well.
  3. I ordered the Master Watt 650 for my UNRaid Server and happy so far.

    So a few things. When you watch the video, you see with next to no airflow over the VRM's, they hit 115*C. This will probably NOT cause a fire or damage but can definitely cause premature failure. With some decent airflow such as an air cooler on the cpu and maybe an exhaust fan nearby, it should be fine as the temps can drop into the 70-80*C range which is what you want for longevity. The MSI Boards happen to use a more robust VRM System with better power delivery and thus they run a fair bit cooler.

    Cheap VRM's hitting 115*C is not exactly ideal. Especially if you don't have the best cooling in the case.

    As per my previous comment, this was regarding the B450 boards. I use an X470 Pro myself.

    Asus and Gigabyte both failed here.

    Gigabyte's VRM on B450 boards are horrible. Hardware Unboxed showed a video of the VRM's hitting 115*C+ Temps on a 2600x.

    TSA killed my pc, (R.I.P Galion Evo)

    Who was the actual shipper, did you purchase any insurance?

    TSA killed my pc, (R.I.P Galion Evo)

    I had shipped a PC from Pittsburgh to Roswell and it arrived completely disassembled. Nothing was really super damaged. But screens to the board was rattling in the case, cooler was unbolted, graphics card was light but unscrewed but the bracket wasn't bent. Feds raided it, got a full refund of the cost from FedEx in 2 weeks with basic proof.

    Ryzen 7 2700x problems

    Just watch HWMonitor. What voltage are you getting? 4.3GHz is only single core boost speeds BTW.

    Ryzen 7 2700x problems

    Ryzen platform is weird. I only hit 3.95GHz with my S36 cooling it. The stock voltage hits 1.45V for me. I am currently 4.2GHz all Core OC at 1.4V and I hit around 65*C when exporting a video. Ram only goes to 3000MHz though

    Ahh yes, .88mm/h20 vs 3.1mm/h20
