    Noob Mistake - AMD Stock CPU Cooler

    @SeptapusIV all of these are good points and I will keep them in mind. Thanks.

    Noob Mistake - AMD Stock CPU Cooler

    @suchamoneypit I experienced exactly what you just described. A little extra pressure on the one screwed allowed it to sync up nicely. It even started to click some. And thank you for the forum etiquette.

    Noob Mistake - AMD Stock CPU Cooler

    Update. I gave it another try after closely inspecting all threads. I was happy with what I saw. I started again with a focus on the less clicky screw. It clearly began to thread properly. I even had to back up the screw before proceeding properly with an X pattern. Everything appears to be level and secure. I will be watching my thermals closely I feel great about how everything finally pulled together. Thanks for the moral support.

    Noob Mistake - AMD Stock CPU Cooler

    Update. After walking away for 30 mins and clearing my head, I went back to my motherboard and the cooler came off hilariously easy. The paste has been disturbed but is quite even still. Here is what I have noticed. The screws on the stock amd cooler are loaded with springs that click when you turn them. One of which is not clicking like the other three. At first I was concerned that the mounting plate had possibly been stripped. I don't think this is the case. Should I give it the old college try and a little more pressure hoping this one screw will start to take hold.

    Noob Mistake - AMD Stock CPU Cooler

    Okay... so my pride is bruised but my spirits are still high. This is my first build after all. I have a B450 motherboard pair with a Ryzen 5 2600. My aim with the stock cooler was apparently off target. One of the posts didn't line up just right and I know how very important this is. By now, the thermal paste has taken hold to the CPU. Thankfully I immediately looked up youtube on how to remove the stock cooler I know to twist and not pull, for fear for yanking the CPU out of the socket., Here is my real question. When I do separate the cooler from the motherboard, will i be able to immediately reset the cooler in place or would I be advised to remove the thermal paste and reapply with new. Again the cooler is currently in place, I have not removed it just yet. Thanks for your help.

    SSD Cache. What is the benefit?

    Okay, so it should be a reasonable performance difference. Here are the two 500GB SSD's I've been looking at. Would it be worth an extra $10 dollars for the Crucial SDD. With all fanboy opinions set aside.

    SSD Cache. What is the benefit?

    I'm looking to build my first computer. When looking at storage option you may find a 500gb SSD with a 512mb cache. What is the benefit of an SSD that has a cache vs not having one? Ex. Western Digital has an SSD with no cache will Crucial has an SSD with a cache. I am not trying to implement a server caching solution, just working with the basics here... Thanks.
  8. I am heavily considering a build with the MSI B450 Pro Carbon AC, Ryzen 2600 and a Sapphire Nitro+. I was recently cross checking my favorite RAM on pc part picker with the approval memory listed on MSI's website. Needless to say some of the ram I was looking to purchase isn't listed on the MSI website. Should I be worried????

    mATX vs ATX - $700 to $800 Build

    Everyone seems to be using ATX cases in my opinion

    mATX vs ATX - $700 to $800 Build

    So far I've really only had one person suggest an ITX case (which I'm not interested in) and the rest have been Mid towers. Would it be safe to say that no one is recommending a Micro tower for a gaming build?

    The manufacturing process and costs always win.

    mATX vs ATX - $700 to $800 Build

    I'm just being vain. Nothing a 5 dollar RGB strip wouldn't be able to help That card clocks higher than mine at a reasonable price.

    I've seen the meshify case as well. How is the dust filter system? Do you feel like there are plenty of fan mounts if you wanted to add on?

    mATX vs ATX - $700 to $800 Build

    To be honest. I keep running into the tomahawk and don't like the look of it lol... Guess I'll have to make the whole build around it instead.

    Tomahawk keeps popping up... This for the input. Do you have an mATX I should consider?
