  1. A bad cpu could cause all sorts of trouble that are sometimes even intermittent. It can also be a flaky power supply. Unstable power delivery usually really makes a computer unstable, even when sometimes it appears to work fine. My recommendation would be trying with another power supply first and then try to borrow an AM4 cpu or get whatever the cheapest APU you can get. I thing the Athlon 300GE is 50 USD. Edit: You should also look into the ram speed limit of your motherboard. Because you can't always run ram faster than what the motherboard was designed for. For example a B350 motherboard I have with a ryzen 3600 can run ram up to 3000MHz being stable. Even if the kit and the cpu are rated for the 3200MHz operation.
  2. I've recently built a computer with a Ryzen 3600 and the stock wraith stealth cooler. When doing cpu intensive things like blender rendering or video encoding I saw temperatures up to 90ºC on the cpu (this is with an ambient temperature of about 25-30ºC mind you). Is this how badly the stock cooler should perform? I'm kind of disappointed about this since I remember that the stock cooler that came with a Ryzen 1600 I had a while back was really good for running at stock speeds. According to the specs in AMD's website the 3600 can handle temperatures up to 95ºC but in worried this might turn my chip into a dorito if i let it be like that long term. Edit: Want to add that this is all at stock speeds with whatever the default bios settings are. The only change I made there was enabling virtualization.
  3. So I'm looking into buying a graphics card, and locally the best prices I can find that match my budget are (converted to us dollars) 200 USD for an 8GB RX 580 or 335 USD for a GTX 1660 6GB. There's also a 234 USD Powercolor RX 590 8GB that looks kind of crappy in the pictures. What do you recommend I buy? Is the 135 dollar price difference worth it? I'm not the biggest gamer ever so gaming is not the primary use for my pc. Thanks!
  4. I'm looking into buying a computer for mainly productivity tasks such as compiling code and video and image manipulation, although I will be playing games sometimes, but it's not the main purpose of this machine. Where I live the price (converted to dollars) for a 2600 is about 170 USD. The 3600 is 250 USD. Do you think the performance advantages of the 3600 are worth it with this price delta. I can also get a 2700 for the same price as a 3600. Buying used unfortunately is not a viable option because all I can find locally is sandy bridge i5s and used current cpus that are nearly the same price as a new one. Thanks! Edit: I will be giving the computer in my flair to my dad so don't tell me to just keep my 1600
  5. Include a computer mod! Such as ComputerCraft or OpenComputers. Programming this virtual computers in Lua would be very fitting considering this is a computer enthusiast community and an introduction to programming for many players.
  6. Is there any reason you don't want to run Windows XP and Vista on a virtual machine? That will allow you to use a modern OS while maintaining compatibility with older software/hardware that runs only under XP.
  7. As posted above, if you are gaming the difference will be little. But if you will de doing heavily multi-threaded tasks, such as Blender or video encoding, the 1700 will give you a small performace boost with it's extra 2 cores. So the choice is 6 faster cores vs 8 slower cores.
  8. Consider buying a high end FM2+ APU used on eBay or something. That will be a cheaper upgrade and give you quite a performance boost. Look into the A10-7890K (if you want an iGPU) or the Athlon X4 880K (if you don't need an iGPU) Otherwise the G4560 is a good cpu, but i'd consider going with a more modern socket, like AM4, so you could easily upgrade your chip in the future.
  9. Yeah, and aside from disabling wps (it's security is crap) set the wpa2 encryption to AES only. It's much more secure than TKIP
  10. I'd recommend you change your WiFi password just to be safe
  11. If I'm not mistaken that's and Amazon echo smart speaker of some sort. That model number suggests so and it's manufactured by Amazon.
  12. Mine is the one that has Louis Rossmann, Jayz2Cents and Wendell in it. Aside from Luke of course. Although it was missing Linus
  13. I'd recommend a Seasonic unit. They might be a bit more expensive but they will last a very long time. Also your expensive hardware will be protected againt any power failure. Edit: Read Stefan Payne's reply.
  14. My PC has a Ryzen 1600 and a GTX 1060. Were I live, the only good psu I can get is this http://www.sentey.com/es/new-snp-650-watts-snp650-hs/ Will it be good enough? What do you think?
