    Best BIOS?

    For a first time builder (which I was a week ago), and only been in one other pre built Dell BIOS, when I built my system a few weeks ago, I found the ASUS BIOS very easy to navigate and easy on the eyes. I built my system with an ASUS Prime X470 Pro.
  3. Corsair has an MM350 which I just upgraded to. It’s bigger than the MM300 and a tad thicker if my feel is correct.

    Complete Desk Upgrade!

    Welp, since I built a new PC (my first build ever), I was in need of a new set up regarding the desk. With wanting to run two monitors I needed more room, as well as the old desk just generally not fitting in with my room and fitting well for how tall I am. This set up is far from a pro level, but it is perfect for me and I am quite pleased with myself. System Specs: Ryzen 7 2700 4 Ghz @ 1.375V | Thermaltake Floe Riing 250 | Asus Prime X470 Pro Mobo | G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 Mhz memory | 3 Thermaltake Riing Pro 120mm Fans (2 intake, 1 exhaust) | 512GB Inland Professional M.2 NVME SSD | Kingston A400 240GB SSD | EVGA Supernova G3 650W | Fractal Design Meshify C in Black Peripherals: Corsair Void Pro White | Corsair ST100 RGB Headset Stand | Logitech G305/Razer Naga Green Edition (depending on the game) | Corsair K65 | Acer XFA 240 (main 144hz panel) | Acer panel my friend gave me (25 inch) | Dual Arm Vesa Mount | Corsair MM350 Extended Mouse Pad | Amazon Wireless phone charger | Viva/Smugdesk Ergonimic Office High Back Mesh Chair with roller blade wheels for use on carpet | Cable management by a cable sleeve with precut reliefs for cables to enter or exit New Desk: Found on Facebook Market Place, I believe it is some old Ikea table top, but the rest was a shop project for a shop class, dimensions are 61" wide x 30" deep x 30" tall | Height Adjustable | Table top is some sort of 1" thick butcher block with beveled edges and a smooth finish with a slight shine Old set up: New Set Up Before Cable Management: New Set Up With Cleaned Up Cables: Let me know what you guys think! To me this has been a fun experience and very eye opening to the world of computers. If I could do it all over again, the only change would be to go with all Corsair cooling as I believe their software to be a bit better, and I would have one less program on my computer to control lighting or fan speeds since my peripherals are also Corsair. Changes to come will be a definite GPU upgrade, currently just waiting for the Navi cards to show their faces in the real market and not just a keynote and see what that does to the market pricing/performance margins. When I do that, I will likely also get some Cable Mod PSU cables made for the 24 pin, 8 pin CPU power, and whatever supplemental power my GPU will need to bring more white into the build as the Asus Prime Mobo has a few white heat sinks, and the added white will make the RGB color of choice pop a tad more. Any names people can think of for the build? I know its not much but its something I'm pretty proud of!

    NZXT H700i opinions

    I wanted to say the H700 is an overpriced cased, but when you look at what it offers and how it looks you are a fool to think that its not at the least, a great case for the money. NZXT knows how to make a clean looking case that is for sure. You can even pop off that mechanical drive tray and only run SSDs (like I am planing to do) and get more room to hide your fan/RGB controllers if you so wish!
  6. I ran with a Steelseries normal thickness Large for a while previous to going with the current MM300 from corsair. This link is for the XXL Steel Series mouse pad, that is thicker than others. This is washable as the rest of the non electronic Steelseries pads.

    What is correct dpi for gaming

    Personally, for Overwatch I believe my DPI is around 700, and the in game sense is about 7.00 I believe... I essentially picked seaguls both in game video settings, as well as his control settings for his mouse and slightly tweaked for my comfort. Currently using the Corsair MM300 mouse pad, but before I was using the Steelseries Large soft mat. I leave my DPI at 700 all the time for everything then adjust in game sense as needed to return to a comfort level. for example I think on Borderlands 2 on the slider for the in game sense, I have it on 1 because that game has some crazy sensitivity lol. My ESO mouse sense is also rather low as well.

    wireless mouse

    I have the Logitech G305. It has their lightspeed sensor, feels light to me (coming from a 2015 Razer Naga wired, so a lot of mice will feel light). It is the typical shape, long battery life (like up to 250 hours on 1 AA battery), has a DPI button, normal left and right clicks and a satifying click sound. I recommend it for sure. the logitech software to control this little guy isn't half bad. This mouse really helped my aim in Overwatch and the like without having a wire. It also comes with a dongle you can use as a USB extension to get the sensor closer to the mouse (I don't know if this actually affects anything but I use it and have no complaints). My main gripes with it thus far, and these gripes aren't enough to make me not want to recommend it, is that 1 the battery is a AA battery and not a rechargeable one, but with 250 hours of battery life, or even half of that, you wont be changing out batteries too often. I often out of habit find myself turning off the mouse when I go to turn off the computer or end my session attached to the keyboard. And 2, it is a tad on the smaller side, granted I'm 6'3" so most items in an office setting feel small lol.

    Looking for a Desk Chair

    Yeah I can understand what you are saying. However, my spinal curve is rather pronounced. I am mostly concerned with being tall.. my back is just gonna be higher than most chairs out there to be honest. At about 6’3” I’m fairly taller than average, and one of the few chairs under $300 I’ve seen that has an adjustable height back is the Autonomous Osmochair, but it’s on back order until September, so that’s a no go.

    Learning to Overclock Ryzen 7 2700

    I would have half assumed that the difference between the X and non X versions of the same chip would be that the X chips were the cream of the crop for say the 2700 line. At the very least the savings of around 100 bucks is quite nice for very similar performance.

    Learning to Overclock Ryzen 7 2700

    This is why I thought I was going to be stuck at 3.5 Ghz when it kept crashing at anything higher lol. So now I am quite happy with my little chip running at 4 @ 1.375v. All of that from a non X model 2700!! Did I mention I got this chip brand new at Micro Center for only $179? Hell of a lot of performance for that price. It has been handling the streaming (first few times so far) extremely well.

    Learning to Overclock Ryzen 7 2700

    Got to 4.0ghz at 1.375v. Think that’s good enough for me 4.0 is a nice round number lol

    Learning to Overclock Ryzen 7 2700

    Ok so update. Got it to run to 3.9ghz at 1.3v. Had crashes at 4.0 at 1.3v and 4.0 at 1.35v. So I backed it down to where I know it ran, at 3.9ghz, and 1.3v. Is 1.3v too low? The heat maxed at around 66.5c with Ryzen master and cinebench r15 open. I know Ryzen puts a tad bit of load in the cpu tho. EDIT: Was able to get a stable 3.950 Ghz at 1.35v. Seems that this is about in line with other Ryzen 2700 overclocks so I am happy. Thank you guys for the help!! Let me know if something regarding this is off, but from my reading its bang on. Temps only got to 68C after doing back to back runs of Cinebench R15 (4-5 runs). Now I am quite happy with myself and this new rig lol.

    Learning to Overclock Ryzen 7 2700

    Okay I think I found my issue. I was tired previously and I just didn’t think to type a number. I was going for auto vs manual. My mistake. How does this set up look, going to boot up and test now.
