  1. It might seem crazy but a person with the same problem as you said before that loosening the screws on the MoBo that is attaching it to the Case might help since it might be a grounding issue. Check as well your RAM slots if it got damaged while you were replacing your sticks...
  2. Also check your PSU...

    Upgrade Graphics card?

    As for GPU, an RX580 would be a slight upgrade from your 970. If I had a 970 years ago then even up to now I wouldn't have still upgraded. Thing is I came from a cheap af super budget AMD Radeon GPU so upgrading would make more sense... Maybe the 1660 would be slightly better as its more recent but basing on the signs that your current system is showing, like overall system slowdowns, it isn't fully indicative of a rubbish GPU whatsoever....

    Upgrade Graphics card?

    Man an SSD does matter, may it be M.2 nvme or classic SATA since it makes every system coming from traditional HDD's much snappier and overall faster. I ran on an HDD as a boot drive for 6 years and just booting up or opening a single app it takes a while. With a SATA SSD now, everything is basically instant when opening applications and boot up is significantly faster. Best way to speed up an old system or prebuilt without one. Definitely a worth upgrade seen as you can get a cheap yet quality SSD 120gb as a boot drive for around $20 more or less...

    Upgrade Graphics card?

    Also check the CPU if its running at the base speed cause it might be going into power states that reduce the clock speed depending on load. Maybe changing your power profile for the PC might help a bit. If nothing else, just clean install as a last resort since doing a clean install of windows most often fixes software-related system slowdowns...

    Upgrade Graphics card?

    Well overall system slow downs may be indicative of an aging HDD... You might want to take a look at the SMART status indicators of your drive...

    Is kalih brown good for first mech?

    I've used cherry browns and outemu browns. Never tried kailh though but browns should be a good middle ground when first getting into the mechanical keyboard scene. I started with Outemu blue switches and they're great for a while then you start getting annoyed with the clicks and the heavier actuation. Reds are too light for me and I can't type on them as well. So basically I've stuck with the tactile non-clicky segment of mechanical switches for the most part. Again, as thousands have reiterated, it all boils down to personal preference.

    Top row of keyboard not working..

    It may be the switches if anything else...

    Is the COOLER WRAITH PRISM ok for the 3700x?

    If the SSD is something that you currently don't have then it could be worth spending on one before a new cooler. But if cooling and CPU performance is of concern to you, then a beefier air cooler would do justice to the Ryzen 7 chips as all of them generate a considerable amount of heat on idle or load, most especially X chips since they have a feature called Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) and it increases voltages dynamically to increase CPU clock speed dynamically basing on temps and load. As a reference, I ran my 2700x on the prism for a solid month but I was getting worried of the less than optimal temps under load, with temps of 80c with PBO on auto and around 87c with PBO enabled under full load, with both hovering in the 45-60c on idle. The dual tower and fan cooler that I have has brought down idle temps to 35-50c with PBO enabled and 30-45c with PBO on auto and load temps of 65-70c with PBO auto and 75-80c with PBO enabled. So its up to you what you would prioritize, better cooling or a faster drive.

    GPU Not getting detected

    Can you give the BSOD code? What GPU do you have?

    Max Safe 24/7 Voltage for DDR4 Ryzen

    I'm currently running at 1.48v dram and 1.05v soc at 3466MHz. Is this surely fine for Zen+ IMC?
  12. So I have a kit of 3200MHz Hynix CJR and I was wondering if going near 1.5v on dram voltage at 1.05v SOC voltage would actually be degrading any component in the system in the long run?

    Unexpected poor performance

    Did you update your drivers recently? Is the card overclocked? Maybe it could be with your 3d global settings in radeon software? Try isolating the problem first cause having low fps could be caused by a multitude of things.

    should i upgrade from 980ti?

    980ti? Although it could show its age, for your use it might still be well relevant. I came from a Radeon HD 6570 which is purely budget (and I mean like it costs like less than a hundred dollars at the time) and I could, somehow, still get work done. Now I' m on an RTX 2060 and I've never been happier. At the end of the day, it all boils down to your specific needs. Don't be forced to ride the bandwagon of modern day hardware if your current one can still do fine.

    Upgrade Graphics card?

    The GTX 970 ain't balf that bad even up to this date. I'd be looking at a RAM upgrade to 16GB dual channel and definitely as suggested an SSD to benefit from its much faster load times and boot times.
