    Apparently I'm a "Lime Laundry Machine​​​​​​​."

    The parrot and I have reached an agreement: it can stay, and I receive RGB points and rent. Sometimes it hijacks my keyboard and leaves an RGB mess everywhere. Don't pay attention to it.

  1. Sample size of one -- I bought a GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO WIFI labelled "AMD Ryzen 3000 Desktop Ready," and it worked fine out-of-the-box with my AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. No problems encountered, but it could also be due to Microcenter's top-notch, proactive service. YMMV, especially if you're looking at eBay/third-party seller offers. Also I think it was the MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX that was pretty much guaranteed to work out-of-the-box with AMD Ryzen 3000s? That's always a safe option. If you don't feel comfortable flashing the BIOS on your own, I believe Microcenter and Best Buy can help, provided you bought your parts from them (assuming you live in the U.S. and are close to a local store). You may or may not be charged additional costs, however.

  4. Welcome to the cult.

  5. ... Do you declare yourself a party birb?
  6. Cyberpunk 2077. Also Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Maybe Warcraft III: Reforged -- But-Better-More-Classic Edition (or Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne please come back I miss you).
  7. Banned for overdone tsundere shtick.
  8. Hey there. Would this LTT video be relevant?
  9. Hey there. My opinions: Like Slottr and ShinRamen said, I'd probably go with AMD. Microcenter and Newegg are having/have had some pretty sick Ryzen sales recently (AMD Ryzen 5 3600 for $159.99 at Microcenter, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X for $179.99 at Microcenter). If you play for Team Red, the stock cooler (AMD Wraith Spire Cooler) is good enough for casual gaming. Could save you a few bucks that you could invest into other parts of your system, such as the graphics card (GTX 1660, RX 5500 XT, or RX 590, maybe?). Also, I noticed you went with an unlocked Intel processor, but your motherboard doesn't support overclocking. Do you plan on overclocking your CPU? If overclocking isn't important to you and if you're dead-set on Intel, shave down a couple of bucks and go with an Intel Core i5-9600. Otherwise, go with a Z-series motherboard. Not sure if you need a 750W PSU for your setup, especially if you don't plan to overclock. If I were in your shoes I'd divert some of that PSU budget into upgrading other parts of your system. Perhaps consider another budget monitor, or consider diverting some of your monitor funds towards your PC? I went with the Sceptre E255B ($163 when I bought it) and I have to say, I am crazy incredibly happy with this monitor. If you're on a budget I'd sacrifice the RGB for better performance, but hey, if it's important to you, do what makes you happy. I wish you luck with your build.
  10. Hey there. I recently encountered a similar-ish problem with no display input into my monitor despite my system running, these steps worked in my case: Check whether your monitor is plugged in, switched on, and is receiving the displaying the right input (DisplayPort/HDMI/etc.). Rudimentary step, but could be overlooked. Check and reattach DisplayPort/HDMI connections from your graphics card to your monitor. If this solved the issue, stop here. Check display input with another monitor that you know will work. If you receive display input here, your original monitor probably has something borked. Switch off your setup, re-seat the graphics card/RAM, check all PSU connections, and attempt to start up your system again. If this solved the issue, stop here. Please note what worked in my case may not work with yours, and that your problem may or may not be different. If your setup still doesn't display anything, my guess is there's an issue with the graphics card or motherboard, and you'll need more help than I can comfortably provide.
  11. Hey there! Welcome! I'd recommend checking out the forum Community Standards and Forum FAQs. Please quote or tag (type "@") people to reply specifically to another member's message. Your quote or tag will let the other member know that you've responded to their message. Have fun! I'd also recommend checking out the stickied guidelines/topics in any sub-forum that interests you. Oh, and maybe this one too: Welcome to the Linus Den-Fi Tech Tips forum!
  12. Unwelcome advertising (bot spam, auto-playing videos, paywalls, emails, etc.). LTT sponsor spots are the only exception because the segues are smooth and the sponsors sell functional/practical products I would enjoy shopping/window-shopping for. URL shortening service links (bit.ly, ouo.io, shorte.st, etc.). (Un)Kindly. Get. Out. I hate these with a passion.
  13. The case seems to have vents on the top and bottom of the front panel for intake. These pictures might shed some light:
