    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to Oswin in 2 cards 1 choice   
    if the price of the regular 1650 is the same as a rx 580 or 1060, dont bother with it.
     
    as @TheDailyProcrastinator said, try to find some deals on a used 1070/1070 ti as it will perform better than the cards mentioned

    Or even 1660 Ti lol
     
    Go used, if you want to stream your money will go a lot further, a used GTX 1070 or 1070 Ti should be obtainable for the price of a new RX580 8GB.

    the 1060 ti doesnt exist, do you mean either the 1070 ti or 1050ti?

    Whats your budget? Currency? And form factor (ATX, mATX, or ITX)?

    Why?!?! Get an ITX case!
     
    My main system is ATX, and I have one mATX build currently, otherwise I really only go for ITX builds. It's nice to have the smaller footprint and the lack of wasted space in a case just seems much more satisfying IMO.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to TofuHaroto in Need help to chose my CPU and alongside it a MOBO   
    A 1600 af or a 3300x. Though a 3300x is a better cpu unless you're doing workloads that are only multi threaded. 
     
    Budget for that?

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to TofuHaroto in Is the ASRock B450M Steel Legend any good??   
    It's decent. Though just get a pro 4 if your looking at it. It's cheaper and does the same thing. 
    Also consider the tomahawk max and the mortar max. As they use 4 discrete 50A mosfets. Not bad. Over all 
    The pro 4 and the tomahawk max and the mortar and the pro vdh max and the a pro max ( non m) are all capable of handling an 8 core easily.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to minibois in Would it be bad to use an aio as the only intake?   
    Intake radiator: higher GPU temps, lower CPU temps
    Exhaust radiator: lower GPU temps, higher CPU temps
     
    It's a minimal difference either way, I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep in mind a top mounted radiator doesn't always fit, due to the thickness of the radiator+fan(s) + RAM/motherboard cooling

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to gloop in Looking to make a super high-end pc for gaming and video editing...   
    From the things you have written, it seems like you haven't built a PC before.
     
    Instead of dropping 30k on a PC, maybe spend 3k and find out if you will actually use it, then drop 30k on it.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to Slottr in RTX 2070 Super or GTX 1080ti ?   
    1080 Ti will perform better
     
    However if you go for the 2070S side, look at a 5700 XT instead. They're incredibly cheaper for the same performance

    Prepping my new ITX build, there is just something so satisfying about ITX boards, I love how much sits on the PCB, no wasted space.

    95 degrees is HOT, something is wrong here. TLDR but hopefully someone has some good advice for what you can do.
     
    My main thing is what are your voltages like?

    The TXm is solid and 650W is good for future upgrades and not totally overkill.
     
    The TXm is Tier B+.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to Sauron in 3900x full load at 95c even using liquid metal and copper heat sink. Can it be lower?   
    Liquid metal isn't typically recommended as a substitute for "normal" TIM, it's mostly used for delidding - part of the reason is that it's hard to apply properly on the IHS. I suggest you clean the cpu and the cooler thoroughly with alcohol (which by the way you should do every time you apply new paste, just adding more as you did isn't a good idea) and trying normal paste.
     
    Other than that... what case are you using? Is there a fan grill that allows the cooler to get the air it needs? Try running it without closing the case to see if it performs better. Also check with the stock cooler for reference.

    TheDailyProcrastinator got a reaction from Demonic Donut in Any good cheap pc fans?   
    These are good, and they are PWM.

    Otherwise I'd wait to build, and 2070S is a good GPU but is a few months away from being replaced by Nvidias RTX 3xxx series.

    You can't get clear answers from forums filled with amateurs guessing what the correct answer might be.
     
    Just answer my question and I will provide the answer:
     
    What CPU are you using?

    Since you already own the PSU I would not worry, what CPU do you have?
