    4k with i6 6700k

    What games you play? The minimum for 4k60fps high settings would probably be the 5700xt or the 2070 Super but depending on the game they might not be able to get 60fps without lowering some settings to medium/low, if you are willing to drop the setting more the 5700 and 2060 Super would be enough, if you want to keep the settings at high/ultra all the time then only the 2080ti and possibly the 2080 super would be enough. At 4k even the 2080ti should be fine with that CPU in most games.

    Gtx 1660ti vs vega 56

    The 5700 is 800 kr more at the site posted earlier so it's pretty safe to assume that the point that the talk was about 1660ti, Vega 56 price range(~3200 kr) and not 2060 and 5700 prices(4000+ kr) while the 5700 is better than the Vega, it is a lot more expensive and most likely for most users not worth the difference.

    My RTX 2060 is underperforming

    While slightly above £100 the Ryzen 5 2600 is probably the best option new: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/jLF48d/amd-ryzen-5-2600-34ghz-6-core-processor-yd2600bbafbox otherwise something used.

    If you don't want to waste that 2060, yes. I mean, if you don't want to get a new CPU just play at 8k that the CPU bottleneck is probably going away for a fantastic under 10fps experience, but yeah you should get a new CPU. Say how much you can put on a CPU, and maybe a new MB and memory that someone will recommend things at that price point.

    Looking for a new AIO cooler

    Just use the stock cooler or some cheap air cooler(be quiet! Pure Rock Slim should fit no problem and is $40 for example.), unless you think the looks are worth $100+ as the 3600 won't get any advantage from being on a expensive cooler, AIO or Air. Also some bigger coolers from Scythe and Thermalright seems to fit the case according to the sizes on PCPP, but are apparently really expensive or unavailable in Canada, maybe those are worth a looking if you can get one for cheap in case you want more options. In my opinion AIOs are useless for these new Ryzen CPUs, even some cheaper air coolers can max out the 12c part while staying at usable temps. Also any reason why you can't reuse the AIO you already have? if you can reuse then just don't get a new one, no need to do so.

    GPU usage 1%

    A game with apparently low settings with locked fps resulting in low GPU usage, seems pretty normal.
  7. How fast is the 2060S supposed to be? If it's faster than the AMD 5700 then it will match or be faster than the 2070 which wouldn't make any sense, unless Nvidia is replacing the old ones and not just adding new cards to the current lineup.

    Looking for a new GPU for new build.

    Vega 56 or RTX 2060. Single fan 2060 are under £300(might be worth saving for better versions depending on your noise level preferences) and the Vega Pulse is often on sale for about £250.

  10. A lot of motherboards already have updates for the new CPUs and some brands have lists showing which models will have support. You just need to check the site of your motherboard to see if the model you own have been updated for the new CPUs or try to find some support list in case it wasn't updated yet.

    B450 chipset with Ryzen 3000?

    If AMD says it is compatible and the MB updates the bios and also says it's compatible then it will work, obviously it won't overclock well with most older boards, but that doesn't mean it won't work at stock. Have no idea why so many people imply that it won't work at all or that it would cause some serious problem even at stock. That is not to say that you should put a 12 or 16 core cpu in a $50 b450 motherboard and expect to work perfectly or to be able to overclock it, but it also doesn't mean it wouldn't work at all particularly when at stock and with possibly lower boost clocks because of power delivery limitations.
  12. Ryzen 3 have no official information but most likely it is going to be 4 cores 8 threads, both Ryzen 5(3600 and 3600x) are 6 cores 12 threads, Ryzen 7 is only the 3700x and 3800x, from what we know there are no other variants of Ryzen 7, 3700 and 3800 aren't a thing, at least not yet.

  14. If it worked like that the 1060 would have costed $600, or the 970 would have been $700 which in this case would cause the 1060 to be over $1000, luckily it doesn't work like that, otherwise prices would double every generation. Also if you consider what you are saying, the 2000 series is barely better than the 3 year old 1000 series while costing the same without any significant improvement on efficiency or noise level which then comes back to how useless the main features of the 2000 series are.
  15. My question is if there is any way to not have applications blasting audio at 100% volume before i can turn the volume down, i.e. having lower default volume for applications.
