  1. Indeed the seller just told me that he used the CPU as is and it ran great. I will clean the pins with isopropyl next week, but what are the risks that can come if this case is more severe?
  2. I will do this however I am a bit let-down because I waited for more than a week for this thing then I need another week to buy the alcohol online. Big time waste right there. However I messaged the seller and he declared that he used the CPU in that state no problem for 2 months because he was also afraid to touch the pins lol. But I will play it safe and let time decide this build
  3. I bought myself a used Ryzen 7 2700x last week, now only had the time to actually open the box and see the contents for myself Long story short, some pins ( around 3 or so ) sinked in old thermalpaste that the old seller applied - and I had no idea how to clean them. Here is a pic for a better clarification of the situation https://imgur.com/gallery/M88wYdK (right side of pic) Is it safe to use still or should I clean them up? Also how should I clean them? I am very afraid the pins might get bent if I were to clean those
  4. Thanks for stopping by. Seems like you are very familiar with their reviews indeed. Say, is the 8.2 out 10 score for the said Riotoro Builder 600W a good score, or what would you suggest? The score is from Jonny's site itself.
  5. I see, I am sorry if my question offended you @jonnyGURU but I have found next to no reviews about this particular PSU so I need to be extra careful. Actually glad to have you here so that my question about the PSU's reliability in the long run can be explained directly from you. Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like this PSU is a sure buy then. Other PSU such as the MasterWatt even got a lower rating than the Riotoro Builder. Thanks for stopping by. By protection testing, do you mean by power surges, or? Also, Do you by any chance do reviews yourself? I would like to expand my list on which PSU to buy for myself. *Diablotek intensifies*
  6. Hi guys, I am looking forward to buy a new PSU as mine, the one I am currently using, got itself placed in D Tier from the .new PSU Tier List. I am currently using a Xilence Performance C 500W, paired with gtx 1060 and fx 8300 3,3 Ghz. Long story short, I stumbled upon Jonnyguru's forum/ review about this one particular PSU and had interest on it. Some of those who helped me in Reddit also encouraged me to visit the site and take my time there to decide on a new PSU. It is a Riotoro Builder Edition 600W 80+ White, and overall Jonny gave the PSU a 8.2 out of 10 - and it is cheap here too in Germany. The review can be found here, although he reviewed the 500W version, not the 600W. There is no listing of this specific PSU model in the PSU Tier List, although some of the models of Riotoro is listed in Tier A and Tier B. But I know that we shouldnt judge a PSU by their brands because each model is different from each other. So my questions are ; 1) Are his reviews trustworthy, as in good for a long run? 2) Will there be any difference between the 500W and 600W PSU, as JonnyGuru only reviews the 500W version? 3) As a side note, I will attach the product's official website here. Thanks in advance.
  7. thanks for the recommendation. this site has been a very huge help to me so far. Another thing to consider, is it advisable to wait til Black Friday / Cyber Monday or grab those items immediately? I am not too familiar with PC part picker web..
  8. actually helps me a lot. I would buy my stuffs in Germany at the meantime. Sorry for late reply; was driving home.
  9. I used the NVENC encoder.. sure, SSD will do good same replies as above lol i see, i thought the card is already aged so i thought that was the problem. thanks yep, thats the plan, 2600x might be my pick as it is cheaper here in germany sure, ill check those out. thanks for your recommendations they did say get a used one for cheap price but they run the same price as ryzen 7 2700 so thats why also for me, this option is not viable
  10. Early October 2018, I bought a custom-made PC from Systemtreff.de (a PC company based in Germany). The spec is as follows : CPU : AMD FX-8300 3.3GHz CPU Cooler : stock MB : Asus M5A78L-M RAM : 2x8GB DDR3 2133MHz GPU : Blower style GTX 1060 6GB PSU : 500W bronze case : custom tower case from systemtreff.de - has 1 back fan, 2 front fans, and 2 uninstalled top fans. 2 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 port. storage : 1 TB HDD I use this PC mainly for 144Hz 1080p gaming, light 3d modelling and speedrunning. The problem I am having is that my game stutters, and when recording any gameplay, the encoder is overloaded (due to weak GPU). Also when speedrunning, my loading times are too long. My question : What should I upgrade so that I could have better speedrunning times / better experience overall? If possible I would only spend around €450 - €550 this time around. some suggestions I got from the Internet : 1. Buy a new CPU, MB, RAM overall. 2. Buy aftermarket CPU cooler, overclock the FX 8300 and spend the rest on better GPU 3. Buy Intel i7 4790k, new LGA 1150 Mainboard and use the same DDR3 RAMs what do you guys think? as a side note, I rock dual monitors, primary being 1080p 144Hz gaming Monitor, while 1080p 75Hz monitor as secondary.
