  1. I got confused with the label, while that green port looks like an headphone jack, but the label is saying that it's audio-in... I don't want the PS4 sound to go through my computer because it sure will have static and delay. What are those red and white plug on my subwoofer? Can I connect my PS4 or monitor straight there?
  2. I have a PC and a PS4, both are connected to a monitor, PC is connected through DVI port and PS4 through HDMI. The PC is connected to a sub-woofer for sound. Now I want my speakers to also work with my PS4. My speaker is Logitech Z323, it has a auxiliary input. My monitor is Asus VH424H, it has an audio input. Right now my PS4 sound is coming out from the monitor through HDMI. How do I rearrange them so both my PC and PS4 can use my speakers?
  3. They are the same price for half a year already
  4. I just checked the manual on their most expensive $650 x570 board, it is also using Asmedia on 2 of its 6 sata ports.
  5. The manual said that sata1 and sata2 ports are from ASMedia ASM1061, and sata3 - sata6 are from AMD x570 chipset. A google search said that the ASMedia one sucks, why would MSI cheap it out like that?
  6. I'm using the MSI x570 A-Pro motherboard and I just installed a brand new WD blue 1TB ssd. The ssd spec is 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write. But on my benchmark, I'm getting sub-par speed at 360MB - 406MB. At first I thought that the drive was faulty. But then when I connected the drive to another sata port, I'm getting the advertised speed. See the red cable in the image. connecting to the bottom sata port give me slow speed connecting to the top port became normal again What is the problem?
  7. I have 3 HDD in my PC right next to me, one being a 7 year old HGST model and one being 8TB Seagate installed last week, and the only time I hear a sound from them is when they wake up from sleep mode.
  8. I just brought a WD sata ssd for the same purpose. There is no difference in performance between nvme and sata ssd on gaming and their price is the same. I choose sata over nvme because I want to have a spare m.2 slot for the future, and the sata one is more portable.
  9. Have you update your AMD driver? Which includes the Windows power plan for Ryzen that reduces the voltage use when idle.
  10. There is no point on waiting, you're not going for the highest end cpu anyway
  11. All of them will work with Ryzen 3900x, I have the entry level MSI x570 A-pro for my 3900x and the performance is completely fine. It's more going down to what feature do you need from the board. For example, if you're into gaming, you should go for the board with the "gaming" label instead (one tier higher than the entry level board) because it has the wifi/bluetooth feature that you would need for connecting your controller.
  12. According to Passmark benchmark, Ryzen 3600 is faster than 2700x, so you may want to switch that up. Along with the x570 board, those gaming labeled board is about the same price so it doesn't matter which one you choose. The ripjaw ram is good choice with good price, it was like $110 during Black Friday. Your 1TB NVME ssd is more than enough to store all you programs and system, so don't waste your money on that extra sata ssd. However, you do need one to store your games, something like 1TB should do. The 1TB HDD is definitely not enough to store 4k footages, I'll go with 4TB at least. The RTX 2070 is an overkill, the RTX 1660 is enough for video decoding and encoding as they use the same chipset https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix
  13. I tried that IC graphite thermal pad this Summer, it didn't work well. I had it on my Ryzen 3900x, and in full load the temp went up to 94C, then I switched to Thermal Grizzle and it dropped to 87C. It didn't work well on my old 4770k system either, with the stock Corsair AIO paste, it was in the 50Cs at full load, with the pad, it was in the 60Cs. I'm suspecting that it doesn't work with high ambient temp. My room was at 32C in the Summer.
  14. Update, I think I fixed it, I turned the switch on the pump to "auto", and then in the bios I changed the fan control to DC mode and turned off the "smart fan mode", now the fan is reading a constant 1900rpm and auto adjusting itself. Thanks all for the help.
  15. Hi this is what I got so far, switching to DC mode did actually gives me the correct rpm, though I still don't know what number to put for the curve. Right now it idles at 43C, where it was 32C with the PWN mode.
  16. The S36 has three radiator fans and I have connected them to the radiator hub already. I have another three 120mm case fans
  17. The three cases are connected together into one header So I opened the case and switched up the header. Now the three case fans are connected to the system fan header and it's showing up correctly in the bios. So now should I be connecting the AIO pump to the pump_fan header and then in the bios choose DC mode and turn off the smart fan control?
  18. I don't have any other fans. There're four "system fan" header on the bottom of the board, I just use the pump and cpu one.
  19. I have a Fractal Design Celsius S36 AIO water cooler on a MSI x570 A-Pro motherboard. The water cooler came with a pwm/auto switch on the pump and MSI BIOS has a setting to control the fan. I followed Fractal's setup guide and connect the radiator fans to the pump making it a single fan connector, and then I plugged it into the "pump fan" on the motherboard. I also have three 120mm case fans connected to the "cpu fan" on the board. In the BIOS, I turn on the "smart fan mode" to overwrite the pump switch (I'm not sure). Now here's the problem, while the "pump fan" control curve successfully controlled on the radiator fans, the "cpu fan" curve does nothing to my three case fans. It is showing that the fans are running at 1900rpm the whole time, but when I put my hand around them, it feels like they're running at 500rpm.
  20. I have took a picture of the E screw from one of my HDD
  21. I have a Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic case, it can hold up to 3 HDD but it only came with 8 HDD screws. I haven't notice this until I got my third hard drive today, and now I'm missing 4 screws. And I don't have any spare lying around. Should I contact them to ask for more?
  22. I have a MSI x570 A-pro for my Ryzen 3900x and I have no idea what the others are talking about. I have absolutely no problem with the board from my 5 months of use, everything is running fine and it's cheap.
  23. Best deal, 32GB 3600@19CL: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232740 You can manually lower the timing.
