    FX 8350 Black Screen

    I said the problem was still present when I swapped the new CPU with the Original
  2. I just got a Brand New FX 8350 because it was fairly cheap. So I swapped it out with my FX 6350, and everything was fine, after one reboot it just gave me a black screen. I've tried both sticks of ram in every slot by themselves, swapping out gpu, clearing cmos, reseating the cpu and all connectors, booting with no drives, and for some reason the problem was still present when I swapped the cpu with my original one. There are also no beeps from the speaker on the motherboard, and the fans and lights turn on. Edit: My mobo also has the latest BIOS Specs: Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming CPU: FX 6350 / 8350 RAM: Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866MHz GPU: EVGA GTX 1060 3GB SC PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 620W Cooler: Cryorig H7

    Bottleneck help?

    I would change that Ryzen 5 1400 to a Ryzen 5 2600 not only because it's a much better value and only $30 more, but because the memory controller on 2nd gen Ryzen is so much better

    What GPU should I get?

    I think I have to mention that if you buy the RX 570 like @Jurrunio recommended, buy it used since they go for around $100 on ebay

    Why my asus strix is so hot?

    Download MSI Afterburner and mess with the fan curve, your fans probably just aren't ramping up early enough
  6. Yes it will fit. But since you have that board, what cpu are you pairing it with? Because if you have anything lower than an i5 I would say not to get that card
  7. Most of, if not the entire, current Ryzen lineup in reality only requires one 8-Pin EPS connector, so I wouldn't say a 200GE would use anything more than a 4-Pin. Since an 8-Pin can receive a little over 200 watts and a system using only the 200GE will take up about 60 watts. That being said, a power supply is NOT something that you want to cheap out on, as it can fry your computer. How much total system memory do you have? Is it possible that you had a lot of tabs open while trying to watch youtube, assuming you don't have much ram.

    Asus Z97-C nvme boot support

    Why would it being PCIe 2x mean it isn't compatible with NVMe? There are 2x NVMe drives, such as this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077GZ7449

    Asus Z97-C nvme boot support

    NVMe uses PCIe lanes, so yes that board supports booting off of NVMe drives. Just to double check, I checked pcpartpicker if there were any Z97 builds that did this and found this one https://pcpartpicker.com/b/LZjypg

    Help whit my first build

    If they were paid promoters wouldn't they want to skew the benchmarks in favor of the more expensive product to get people to spend more money, and not the other way around?

    Help whit my first build

    For one, the 2600X (in USD, at least so I don't know how well the argument does with other currencies) is $224.90 and the 2600 is $165.99, that's a difference of 58.91. You could buy a Hyper 212 or a Cryorig H7, both of which are superior coolers, and only spend about $190 to get the same if not better performance. There are also plenty of videos showing benchmarks of the 2600X vs the 2600 where they are basically tied. Like this one by Hardware Unboxed, for example

    Help whit my first build

    I would go for a 2600 instead of a 2600X. It's not worth spending $60 more on a cpu that is binned slightly better
  13. Your "example" is very lucky. Also, I wouldn't do anything involving auctions as people can just snipe it quite literally last second and dramatically raise the price
  14. If he goes used, the cheapest 6600k on ebay is $154. So that's $24 difference compared to $178 for the i5-8400. Unless he has some deal on craigslist for like $130 or something insane like that
  15. I just want to make this extremely clear, since you said you are new to building pc's. I know that @xdeathshot20 already mentioned they're from different generations, but, the i5 6600k will only work in Z170 and updated Z270 motherboards, an i5 8400 will only work in Z370 motherboards.
