  1. Hello! I have built a few PCs in my life and I was just wondering what the difference is between that and a server (for plex, minecraft, general backup...)? Water vs air cooling? Do I need to go with a server cpu (like Epyc or Xeon) or can I just use a regular one (ryzen or intel i)? How much RAM should I get? Should I use Windows, Ubuntu, Pop OS, or something else? Does hyperthreading help? How many cores should the CPU have? Will a gpu have any noticeable affect for streaming? Any good guides that you would recommend to me? Any advice is appreciated, even if you don't answer all of the questions. Thanks so much!
  2. But isnt the heat from the cpu taken by the liquid? Does the air outside the heat sink matter?
  3. Hello! I just always wondered why the radiators for cpu coolers are placed on the intake to the case; doesn't that just send the hot air into the PC again? Why not on the exhaust? Thanks so much for your time and wisdom!
  4. Hello! I just built my PC, and I want to make sure that my cpu and gpu are not overheating. What programs can I use to monitor these? I have Ryzen 3600x and rtx 2060s. Thanks!
  5. Hello! I am building my PC, and my motherboard, the ASUS Prime X470 Pro comes with an M.2 Heatsink. Should I install it on my NVMe Drive (WD Black SN750), or is it better to not install it. There are exposed electronics on the M.2 drive that might end up touching the paste on the heatsink. Thank you!
  6. Hello! I am building a PC with a Ryzen 3600x and an x470 motherboard, so I need to update my bios; do I update the bios before or after installing windows? Thanks
  7. Thanks for the recommendation, but is there anything cheaper? The Be quiet is almost half the price of the cpu itself! Are the Pure and Shadow rock series good?
  8. Hello! I am building a new PC, and the case I chose (Fractal Design R6) is not the best for airflow. I have a Ryzen 3600X, and I was wondering whether or not I should invest in an aftermarket cooler. Silence is really important to me, but I also don't want the components to throttle or even be damaged because of the heat. Currently, I am looking at Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black or MSI Core Frozr L. Is there a Noctua or other brand cooler that I should look into? Is it even worth investing in? Thanks so much for your insight!
  9. Hello, there! I am deciding on an NVMe drive for my PC, and I was wondering which is the best to get? The Samsung is fastest, but also is far more expensive; I care most about longevity and reliability. What would you recommend? I am not a pro user or anything, so should I just pick the cheapest? Thanks!
