  1. So, I was playing Battlefield 1 (the only game installed on my Hard Drive for storage reasons), and I noticed that there was a whirring noise coming from my computer. It would slowly get louder, die down, and repeat. I quit Bf1, and it seemed to stop. I then thought that it could be my hard drive, so I launched a game on my SSD, and sure enough, no whirring. I then transferred Bf1 to my SSD, and everything ran smoothly. Could this be a sign of a dyeing hard drive? I have the Western Digital 1003fzex 1tb HHD, and have been consistently using it for about a year and a half.

    Ryzen 2700x cooler upgrade

    I have the Ryzen 2700x, and have been using the stock prism cooler. The fan is is annoying, and i'm not quite getting the temps I would like. What would be a good cooler to upgrade to? I'm looking for one that's 60 to 100 dollars. I would like to try AIO liquid cooling, but I understand if that's not a option at this price-point. It would be best if its Am4 compatible out of the box. Oh, and I cant stand those ugly Noctua coolers, so preferably another brand. Thanks! Specs (for possible clearance issues): Ryzen 7 2700x Msi X-470 gaming plus motherboard Ripjaws V 16gb RAM Silverstone RL06 mid tower case

    High temps with Ryzen 7 2700x.

    That problem was due to the fan header being half out : ( It was kinda stupid on my part.

    High temps with Ryzen 7 2700x.

    I recently upgraded to a Ryzen 7 2700x, and it seems that im getting usually high temps. I'm using the stock cooler, and am idleing anywhere from 30 to 45c (typically hanging around 35). It seems that every once abou every 15 seconds the temperature will jump up to about 47, then slowley make its way back down. Im tracking the temperatures using the ryzen master software, and core temp. Are these temperatures, and fluctuations normal? If not, what, could the problem be?
  7. It's only happened 3 or 4 times, I ln the 2 years that I've had my pc. I just want to know if I should be worried, or If it could be something minor.
  8. I realize now that this should of been in troubleshooting.......oh well.
  9. A few months ago I was playing a game, and my computer randomly blue screened with the infamous error message "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart". I restarted, and everything was fine. About a week later, it did it again. I was worried, but didn't do anything about it. About 5 months later, I replaced my motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Everything was working fine until yesterday (3 weeks after the hardware change) when my computer blue screened again when coming out of hibernate mode. Once again, it restarted and everything seemed to work fine. What could be causing this to happen? It seems strange to me that my computer shows no other signs of having problems, except for the occasional blue screen.

    Best GPU for 1440p gaming?

    I'd like at least 60fps at 1440p mid to high settings (some times I'd be content with 45), and at least 80 at 1080p. I'm not planning on switching to 1440p in every game, I'd just like the option so I can decide between high FPS lower resolution, and lower resolution high FPS, depending on what I'm playing.

    Best GPU for 1440p gaming?

    I've always been hesitant buying used PC components.What kinds of things should I look for to make sure I'm not getting scammed?

    Best GPU for 1440p gaming?

    I just upgraded my CPU to a Ryzen 2700x, but sadly I still have a old rx-460 which in some cases struggles with 1080p. I was wondering what would be the cheapest GPU to get into 1440p gaming for this setup?
  13. I'm planning on upgrading my rx 460 to a rx 580. This may be a stupid question, but would I have to delete the old drivers before the upgrade, and install the new ones after, or are they similar enough that I would not have to change anything?
  14. I meant that once I do upgrade my GPU, I will see better performance than I would have with the Fx 6350.
  15. Thanks! I just wanted to make sure that my upgrade wasn't for nothing.
