  1. can you fit a larger aio in there? last time i played they allowed a max of 240mm, think it was a bug
  2. Minimally, no. Most RGB fan packs come with the minimum required accessories to control the fan via software/hardware. There are QOL stuff you can buy, like the Commander Pro from Corsair which allows you to plug in the RGB fans' power into it, as well as the RGB LED Hubs so you can control fan speed and RGB through the same software, and neaten up cables since you don't need to plug in your fans to the motherboard.
  3. Try to blow on the gold plates on the RAM sticks? Worked for me once when the PC wouldn't boot. Wiping with hands could maybe cause some oil/dirt to actually go onto the RAM instead of cleaning it
  4. I had the same issue, in my case I had a faulty boot drive(unknown to me at the time), and after switching boot drive and reinstalling windows the problem stopped. I was using a shitty DRAM-less SSD as boot drive so I probably should have had it coming
  5. Yeah, personally wouldn't get an Intel CPU unless it specifically does better in what I do and I have the money to spend(which is a pretty specific situation) Also, maybe the resale value thing is because IPC from like 7th gen onwards is more or less the same? the 7700k is still very capable today in gaming(and so is pretty much every i5 and i7 from like the 2nd gen onwards), whereas AMD has come a long way from 1st gen in terms of memory compatibility, frequency, IPC, core count etc.
  6. why consider 9900k at all? it's only better than 3700x/3900x in some games due to optimisation and higher frequency, but both ryzens are cheaper and the 3900x has higher core count and thread count. like what @manikyathsaid, get a 3700x/3900x if your rig is literally unbearable to play on or something. if you can wait, then ryzen 4000/intel 10th gen could be a good choice, but nothing certain until we see proper third party benchmarks
  7. Here's a part list that is more or less reasonable with your specs requested. From what I see, you can keep the SSD and HDD, but not as a boot drive. Maybe just plugged in to access your files or something. Everything else can't be transferred over(PSU technically can, but I wouldn't trust a 7 year old PSU. If the PSU breaks your whole PC is at risk) Here's a part list, includes RGB case fans, RGB RAM, the same GPU you specified, a Meshify C, a 1440p 144hz monitor. Practically, the stock CPU cooler is more than enough, but aesthetics wise it's pretty ugly, so you can add in a water cooler or something(Just ask for recommendations if you're up for this) PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor €189.95 @ Azerty Motherboard MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard €130.95 @ Azerty Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory €117.95 @ Bytes At Work Storage Western Digital Blue 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive €79.00 @ Paradigit Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive €68.89 @ Alternate Belgium Video Card Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB WINDFORCE OC 3X Video Card €558.07 @ Azerty Case Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case €89.00 @ Paradigit Power Supply Corsair RMx (2018) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply €124.89 @ Alternate Belgium Case Fan Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 RGB TT Premium Edition (5 Fan Pack) 48.34 CFM 120 mm Fans €154.85 @ Azerty Monitor AOC AG273QCX 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz Monitor €394.00 @ Alternate Belgium Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total €1907.55 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-03-27 18:01 CET+0100 I chose white RAM here because it'll contrast nicely with the black motherboard. You can stick with full black and get a black RAM, or you can follow this theme and get a white Meshify C, as well as a white cooler. Black and White theme with RGB will look pretty cool. If you wanna go even further into this, you can go get some good sleeved cables from CableMod, their sleeved cables look a lot better than stock PSU cables. Here's some white ones that support this particular PSU, should be able to find them on Amazon or something.
  8. ID-card reader? Like a barcode/QR code scanner?
  9. Don't think 2060 can be considered last gen, the 2060 super didn't really replace it, it was to fill a gap between 2060 and 2070. Quite sure 2060 is still under production aswell.
  10. if a cpu is socketed properly it's pretty hard to damage it, you'd need a lot of pressure to break the PCB for the pins/contacts to be damaged pretty hard for the paste to reach the pins once the cpu's socketed too. I've always had to slide coolers around on a cpu to align holes, especially with hard to mount systems(ahem, corsair's AIOs).
  11. shouldn't be an issue, if the cpu is properly socketed the worst outcome would have been thermal paste slightly spilling out. Maybe try to blow on the gold contacts on the cpu? could be dust preventing proper contact. i've had ram sticks work after blowing on the gold contacts before, worth a shot. if it doesn't work, it's much much more likely that the cpu's faulty, and you should probably return the cpu then
  12. There's a tool that suggests timing settings based on what RAM you're running, works well for me(defo not the best tightening you can do but it's pretty good)
  13. plug the display cable from your monitor into your graphics card display output this is where the cable should connect to from the monitor: also, after plugging in monitor, please remember to turn on the power supply then turn the pc on.
