  1. All components are around 35 C degrees with no load, thanks for the tip I'll keep an eye on that when I start gaming
  2. My Specs So every since I got upgraded my gpu and ram (1060 6GB to 2060 Super and 8 gbs DDR4 3000mhz to 16gbs DDR4 3200mhz), I have noticed that none of my components have been hitting 100% usage in task manager, and nothing above 40%. Even when I'm gaming, where previously my ram would always hover around 95% usage, nothing goes above 40%, and yet I may be getting only 70 fps where my frame cap is 144. I'm struggling to find a bottleneck in my system, as I also just upgraded my psu. Could my components be running too hot?
  3. Is going just to 550w bronze enough for the near future? Or should I get a gold 550w or I get a bronze 600w/650w?
  4. The 3900x is far more powerful then the 9900k, but the 3900x is a bit to powerful for the 1080ti. So if you are purely gaming, get the 9900k (there is no bottleneck with that combo), or look at something like the Ryzen 3700x if you want AMD and a bit cheaper.
  5. Firstly, here is my current build. Note the GPU cost more around 300 when I bought it back in February of last year. Also didn't buy windows for 100 dollars. Secondly, here are 2 upgrades I am looking at: ASUS ROG STRIX 2060 SUPER (I know the that the 5700 is slightly better, but I want an Nvidia GPU) G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 Any thoughts on these parts? And lastly, I was wondering if it would be worth to wait until Nvidia's 3000 GPU series launch around June, or would I need a CPU and motherboard upgrade to prevent bottlenecks? And would the equivalent card (3060) even release at launch, or just the 3080?
  6. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction I’ll do some research from here. Last question is Gskill the way to go? Or someone else?
  7. They do seem way more expensive in the 3600mhz variant
  8. Any recommendations for kits with this in mind? And yes, I am a sucker for rgb
  9. So when I was building my first pc back in February, I decided to skimp on the ram to afford better other parts, and got a kit of 2x4gb kit of Patriot DDR4 clocked at 2666mhz. CPU is AMD Ryzen 5 2600. This choice may not have been the best decision, as with an upgrade to a 27 1440p monitor and a new graphics card just bought (gtx 1060 6GB to Strix rtx 2060 super), the ram is really what’s bottlenecking my system. I was looking at the G-Skill Trident-z RGB 2x8gb 3200mhz, but I have heard 32gb may be worth for a 2060 super. Also is 3200mhz a could frequency for a Ryzen 5 2600? And when I do get my new ram, if it is 2 sticks can I move the old ram to the other slots, even though they are a different frequency?
  10. This Monitor and HDMI cable are only outputting 60hz, when it should 144hz, any ideas? https://www.asus.com/us/Monitors/VG248QE/ https://www.amazon.com/Cmple-28AWG-Cable-Ethernet-Black/dp/B004Y4HVHI/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?keywords=hdmi+2.1&qid=1576453175&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzTkkxRUoyVldORTc1JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzQxMDI2V0dEOVUySjRYRjMxJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAyODQ1NzcyUTZIWDFISkUwNkhIJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  11. So I am building my friends pc tmr, and it has a AMD Ryzen 5 3600, and the motherboard is a MSI B450 Tomahawk. On the website, it says it I supports 3rd gen Ryzen, so do you recommend I build I try to get the system to post before I do the update? Or should I just flash the update via USB stick before I the cpu in? And if it doesn't post with the everything installed, do I need to take everything off the board before I take flash the update?
