  1. What is the cpu in question?
  2. More expensive though
  3. I was told most games don't require more than 4 cores 8 threads and the most stressful thing I am doing is gaming
  4. Whitch gaming keyboard and mouse

    I recently got the hyperx pulsefire and alloy fps. I am very happy with both of them but I cannot compare them to anything as they are my first decent pc peripherals (before I used an apple keyboard and mouse blech).
  5. I have a ryzen 5 1500x and I bought it over the 1600 for the clock speeds, but my chip cannot even reach 3.9ghz stable and can only reach 3.8@1.37 or higher. Is my chip bad enough for a refund?
  6. First PC Build

    Instead of the H100i v2, the NH-D15 will provide the same, if anything, better, thermals while being cheaper. The only reason to go for H100i v2 would be aesthetics as NH-D15 is kinda ugly.
  7. If you were to spend more tho I would get this https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/RzWsyf
  8. I would wait for h370 and get this: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/xfDvHN or https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/qvNVsJ
  9. Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo or Wraith Spire?

    Although the wraith spire is a good stock cooler, pretty much any aftermarket cooler can still outperform it. If I were you, I would test my thermals under load with both, but I am 90% the TX3 is better.
  10. Either one would be great for overclocking. Choose the one with the most features or the cheaper one.
  11. EVGA 1000W G2 just died on me.

    Are you sure something didn't fall into the power supply? I have a friend who turned on his computer without realising there was a screw rolling around in there.
  12. Sorry, this is a bit late, but I was looking around on other forums and people said they might both be right. Apparently, the bios will often have higher voltage because it is trying to make sure the cpu will boot in any condition. Do you know if this is true?
  13. Thoughts? First pc build not knowing much

    I forgot to add, a useful tool to measure your pc's power consumption is this calculator https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator Keep in mind they do overestimate it a fair bit.
  14. Thoughts? First pc build not knowing much

    I would not recommend PowerColor as they a well known for terrible build quality. It is more worth it spending around $20 more for a better cooler. In my opinion, the sapphire nitro+ is the best and the 8gb version was on Newegg for $290 last time I checked. I wouldn't recommend a 120mm AIO water cooler as a decent air cooler can outperform them by a fair bit. If you were gonna get water get either a 240 or 280mm radiator.
  15. Have I lost the silicon lottery?

    There is another setting called VDDCR SOC Load Line Calibration. Should I change this setting or is it best to leave it on auto?
