  1. @TofuHaroto is Dale, @Tristerin is Brennan. #nailedit
  2. I know the 5700XT is incompatible as I have asked around looking to water cool my card, but I know some other users have made it work by dremeling the bracket or zip ties like you mentioned, Im sure it would work the same with a 2060 with a bit of DIY.
  3. I think the kraken G12 liquid cooler mount for GPU's by NZXT should work for OP as well, but I could be wrong.
  4. he means to locate the power switch pins on the header, and use something metallic to short them out, basically simulating the use of a power switch on the case. This would rule out the hardware from being the problem, and direct the fault at the case if it worked, either having a bad switch or it wasnt plugged into the proper pins on the motherboard to begin with.
  5. Same thing applies on the B450 boards. If you are buying from a retail store, You will be able to tell before you buy it by the box saying "Ryzen 3000 Desktop Ready". If it says "Ryzen 2000 Desktop Ready", you will need to update the bios or have the store do it for you. If you purchase it online, its "sight unseen" for lack of a better term, unless you can contact the buyer to ask. Most retailers will do the bios update at no charge if you buy it through them, otherwise they may charge a small fee if purchased elsewhere, or if you are not comfortable doing it yourself.
  6. Country: Canada Budget: Flexible, trying to keep it less than $1000CAD Currently sporting an HP Omen 25 144hz TN panel. I like it, but sometimes it likes to just go black, I have ruled it out (I think) from being a GPU driver issue as when it cuts out, all my images transfer to my secondary monitor and after a quick power off and power on cycle it comes back without a hitch. Not too sure what that could be. I bought it refurbished with a warranty, so I would be happy to send it in for repair/replacement but I would like to get into a higher res display if possible, as the monitor is discontinued. Looking for 120hz or faster, Trying to keep the GTG low. Panel type im not sure, I can deal with TN, VA or IPS. I have heard through word of mouth that a 1440p display is much better in the 3440x1440 ultrawide configuration versus the 2560x1440 configuration. I cannot confirm this without test driving some monitors. I am hoping this wonderful community can help point me in the right direction as to what I can expect from either resolution. PC is used primarily for gaming, some esports titles, some more immersive story based games. I also do lots of video editing, and a minimal amount of photo editing so color accuracy (Which I need to learn how to calibrate) would be ideal. Thanks!
  7. What resolution is your monitor? What kind of FPS are you looking for? If you are running 1920*1080 and are looking for just 60fps average on low to medium settings, actually a RX570 or RX580 from AMD would do just fine, if you can find one used at a fair price. A GTX1060 could do you well too but those typically end up costing a little more on the used market. Outside of that when it comes to the new market you could look at 1650(S) or 1660(S) or a radeon 5500XT or 5600XT, but you wont find many if at all at the same cost of a RX570

  9. For overclocking the CPU I would suggest either performing in the bios or use MSI afterburner, Prime is a good stress test on the CPU, Cinebench is good as well, you should be able to get the results you are looking for by using either program. Bench testing GPU or stress testing, you can use the Heaven benchmark, Furmark for stress testing, Blender, all those work just fine, and depending on the make of your GPU you could use GPU Tweak II (Asus), I have never used MSI afterburner before but I think (and I could be wrong) you can OC a graphics card with it, EVGA has a client as well, if its a radeon card you can also use the radeon client, however I dont use this one at all, It likes to reset all changes after a full power off for some reason I cannot explain.
  10. If you can get your hands on the RX570 with 8GB VRAM versus the 4GB, thats usually a good way to go. You could also hold out and try and find a used RX580, they are also a good card for a low price if you can find a decent one thats not much more than a 570, but ultimately its your call.
  11. If you are able to get your hands on a Saphire Nitro+ 5700XT, you simply cannot go wrong with this GPU. AMD has resolved all the previous driver issues (I complained about that for months). The Asus Strix version is undergoing recalls for VRM overheating due to improper mounting screws for the cooler, and the reference ones can get a bit noisy as they are a blower card. A 2070 super is no where near a 2080 but cheaper, again as @TofuHaroto listed the biggest differences between the two cards. Price to performance, 5700XT is the way to go.
  12. You would not see a significant enough gain in performance for the price, if you saw any at all. @TofuHaroto is 100% correct in saying that a 5700XT would get you identical performance at less cost, albeit without RTX raytracing, but AMD and DirectX are rumored to be releasing their own ray tracing which would be compatible on other cards that are not RTX series cards.
  13. But but but but it gives you a chance to see all the pictures again! (Kidding, I understand. Sorry!)
