  1. New reaction video for when people post some really dumb shit




  2. yes, AMD says that updates for Zen3 CPus will cut off previous support, but currently a B450 motherboard that can support Zen 2 can also support Zen + and Zen CPUs.
  3. gaming at 1080p? the 1050 is a bad value, bottleneck or not. You can almost always find an RX 570 or 470 for cheaper and it's a more capable card. You can also possibly get an RX 560 for pretty cheap, which I recommend if you find a good deal. Though usually the 570 and 470 are very plentiful on eBay. Unless you somehow get a GTX 1050 for like $50, it's a bad buy. Don't worry about a bottleneck at this performance level, it's a low end system.
  4. are you just an advertisement bot?
  5. an i5-10600 has the same fortunately. no worries about a bottleneck, reasonable to pair with any high end GPU.
  6. it supports dual channel with 2 dimms per channel, so 4 dimms total.
  7. you're spending less money and you're making less money, it'll be pretty proportional and you're not really "losing" here. also a lot of people are gonna pass with an inadequate PSU in the rig so that should be priority one. If you want it to be more "gamery" you can toss an i7 in there, still more appropriate even if 8 cores 16 threads is overkill.
  8. I guess? but having hardware sitting on a PSU that can't handle it at load is bad practice if you can't handle me at my worst you don't deserve me at my best
  9. i5-10600 or 10600K offers top tier gaming experience at a fraction of the cost of an i9. Gives you the spare funds to upgrade the PSU to a higher quality unit.
  10. it's a lot better to plan for what the CPU can do, not what it might usually be doing. also, disabling turbo boost? do you know how low the base clock on that CPU is? what a waste. If you're gaming, get a 6 core CPU and let it turbo, cause it'll outperform a kneecapped 10 core CPU 10 times out of 10.
  11. this techpowerup article seems to have a good amount of charts https://www.techpowerup.com/review/intel-core-i9-10900/18.html max turbo without a BCLK overclock has it at 243 watts. Mind you, that is "whole system" power draw but they're running a CPU only benchmark and the additional watts would be negligible (handful of watts for ram, motherboard, SSD) so the wattage for the CPU itself would still be pretty high, in the 200 watt range. why should it? 10 cores, 14nm inefficient power draw, the 9900K draws like 180 watts at stock
  12. there really aren't any accurate PSU calculators, they basically all use TDP to try to estimate power usage. You'll find that if you go to websites where measurements for component power draw and add them together yourself, you'll get very different results. Tomshhardware is usually one of the best references for component power draw, with a lot of comprehensive analysis
  13. TDP is thermal, not power 3 An i7-7700, with only 4 cores, is a 95 watt TPD CPU
  14. not a very good power supply for your uses, an i9-10900 can draw over 200 watts with a 3070 also being about 220. it does spike in power so if you were using a 550 watt PSU you'd want it to be a high quality unit. Have a look at the PSU tier list to get started, and if high core count CPUs with powerful GPUs are what you strive for, maybe a 650 watt or 750 watt PSU are ideal to get a decent upgrade path.
  15. comfortable to sit in, yes or no?
