  1. I found picture of great phone holder to use in car, in the spot where you would usually put cups. Does anyone have some link to something similar on Ebay or Aliexpress? I'm trying to find something similar, but can't find anything like this:
  2. 2,35GHz since it came out ... that's pushing the limits. I'm surprised it lasted you that long. Hopefully you can RMA it.
  3. To be fair, I wouldn't pair 12 core CPU with any mATX board ... but it's listed under supported CPUs, so it should work just fine. If it doesn't, he can always return this board and pick another one. I know there are a lot of smart engineers on this forum, that don't recommend some motherboards, but I do also have a little bit of trust for manufacturers ... they surely tested those motherboard with 12 core CPU to make sure everything is working fine.
  4. https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-modflex-8-pin-pci-e-extension-45cm/ That extender for power delivery on GPU. About motherboard bottlenecking GPU, yout shouldn't worry. CPU on the other hand can be a bit tricky. 3900X have 12c/24t and I wouldn't pair it with some cheap motherboard without VRM heat-sink. https://www.caseking.de/asrock-x570m-pro4-amd-x570-mainboard-sockel-am4-mbar-315.html This one is releasing soon, and it is compatible with Ryzen 3900X, so I would pick this. edit: https://www.caseking.de/asus-tuf-b450m-pro-gaming-amd-b450-mainboard-sockel-am4-mbas-434.html This one also have heat-sinks on VRMs, and Ryzen 3900X listed as supported CPU. So it should work just fine.
  5. I had the best experience with EVGA for both GPUs and PSUs, so I can recommend them. Didn't exactly have any bad experiences with other brands, since I never owned another brand and had to RMA it.
  6. Not sure what gave you the impression for those cards to be bad ... they are what you expect from 2070 Super lineup. Under load it does keep temps under 65°C. As for performance ... it's the same as any other 2070 S ... so no, they are not bad. https://www.eteknix.com/gigabyte-rtx-2070-super-gaming-oc-graphics-card-review/11/
  7. In that case just go with i5 2500. Seems like decent upgrade for this price.
  8. It also depends on your motherboard. If you can overclock CPU on it, your best bet might be 2500k. Those CPUs are beats and can be overclocked nicely. It's also soldered CPU, so overheating shouldn't be such a huge problem. With 100€ to spend, you can't really afford to go with another platform, since it would require new motherboard + cpu and maybe even new RAM.
  9. That's exactly how most of reviewers got their first hardware for reviews. You pay some amount of money, for them to ship the card to you. After you are done with your tests, you send GPU back and get your money back as well. But keep in mind that shipping cost from you back to them is paid/covered by you. For most reviewers that's not a problem, since it usually costs around 20-30€ for shipping, but you get more than that from your Youtube partnership. That's the way, how you start ... after you get more and more views/subscribers, they won't bother with deposits for sending hardware to you for review, because by then you will have influence on a lot of potential consumers. If you will be successful of course. Good luck mate!
  10. Sometimes different combination of GPU and PSU can lead to reduced coil whine. I tried 3 different PSUs and 2 different GPUs ... any combination I made, coil whine was always there. My "solution" was, to move PC in room below mine, and simply buy 5M displayport/USB/HDMI cables. Now noise can't get to me and I can sleep peacefully.
  11. I agree with this quote. My old Ryzen 1700 was only able to clock at 3,75GHz on all cores, so I would consider 3,9GHz decent OC for first generation Ryzen. Under 80°C at all times is perfectly fine. 85°C under stress testing is also ok, since you never actually push your CPU as hard as stress test does.
  12. After patching our email server, I didn't notice that mails weren't coming inside ... it took me about 5 hours to realize that, and after restarting transport service, mails started coming in again. We received all emails for past 5 hours, when our email server was kinda offline to outside world. In most cases it should be fine for up to 12 hours ... at least that's what Microsoft employee told me.
  13. Usually it takes gpupdate /force on user computer, and log off + log on, for permissions to apply correctly. Please try that.
  14. My i5 8600k at 5GHz is using just over 100W when at full load, and I can keep it under 80°C all the time with air cooler. 360mm rad for i9 9900k being minimum is just madness. I suspect that he didn't mount is properly (it happens even to experienced builders), or it could be bad TIM between cpu and cooler. If CPU cooler wasn't working, temps wouldn't stop at 95°C, but it would go to 100°C and crash very soon after stress test was started.
  15. I honestly don't see why wouldn't they want to upgrade to Win10. It was even a free option a while ago, to simply use your Win7 licence key for Win10 activation. And it's not a bad Windows version by any means ... at least that's my opinion.
