  1. yes I know the cpu only support that far, but my question is the MSI one (aka the nicer one) has to OC to get 2933 while Gigabyte one does not have to OC. Does this mean much difference, like for board durability and such?
  2. Hi all, I'm picking a motherboard for my pc. Ryzen 3400G 2933MHz and Gskill Ram 3000 dual channel. I don't know whether to pick B450M Gigabyte Aorus or MSI Mortar. As I saw on their website (screenshot attached here), Gigabyte don't consider 2933MHz system memory frequency to be OC while MSI does. Does this mean Gigabyte is better? Please advise me on this point and any point at all. Thank you so much.
  3. I am using Gigabyte B450 Aorus Pro. Is it the part where I hold SHIFT and click RESTART? (That's where I don't know how to proceed...)
  4. Hello. My new system contain only one M.2 SSD (where I also store Windows 10) and no other kind of storage. And everything was fine until yesterday when I removed the M.2 SSD and inserted a HDD, did some work. After that, I removed the HDD and inserted the M.2 SSD again. From that onward, whenever I restart OR turn off the turn on the computer again, it always shows like there is no storage found, I always have to restart, press F12 (boot option for Gigabyte motherboard) and select the SSD for Windows to start (which used to be automatic, but is not anymore...) Please help me. Thank you very much!
  5. Hello all, My PC runs on Windows 10 64bit. It's brand new (bought last month) so it starts and shuts down very fast. Recently I noticed that when I shut down, although the screen goes off already, the CPU and case fans keep running for about 10 seconds before shutting down. What could be the cause of this please? I'm worried coz it got blue screen recently. I clean-reinstalled Windows 10, the blue screen no longer appears, but the delay is still there...
  6. Hi all, I am torn between RX 570 and GTX 1650 Super Here the price difference is vast ($65) but not in my case, because I must buy a new PSU for RX, which makes the difference so much smaller ($23). My current 400W PSU cannot support RX. So it all came down to performance, but here it is still so confusing. YouTube benchmarking shows very different results in different videos comparing 2 same cards. In some videos GTX is better, but not in some others. So I hope you guys could help me clear this out: Is it worth it to pay some extra to get GTX? All kinds of reasons are appreciated even if you talk bad in general about driver updates or past bad products, I want to hear. Or could you help explain why the benchmarking was not consistent, is anyone cheating to help either AMD or Nvidia or they're just about driver or CPU compatibility? Thank a lot! Edit: My 2 options are Gigabyte RX 570 4GB Gaming and MSI GTX 1650 Super VENTUS XS OC 4GB Edit: Also great if you could recommend a card that is not one of those 2.
  7. Thank you very much for your detailed info. Guess I must spend some time studying more about PSU and power first and see if this Xigmatek brand is really good (i see a lot of cases, psu, coolers, etc. from this brand so i blindly assumed they were good). For now I'll stick to that integrated Vega 11.
  8. Hi Jon. I thought it could be trusted because Xigmatek looks like a rather big a popular brand here. I see a lot of its product and bought that PSU from one of the biggest PC component distributors in Vietnam. After your comment I did also dropped by the store again and became officially lost in the world of PSU and electricity... Yes that PSU is Vietnam only https://www.xigmatek.com/product_detail.php?item=220 Ouch that 80 Plus sign is fake? I never seen any other model... No each of the column in the PSU's wattage table does NOT represent one power cable? One tech guy brought me a 24 pin cable and started telling hey red means 12V yellow means -12V (something like that). I mean... wow... And the saddest part is NO everyone here and there say I should not add RX 570 to this PSU, even if I don't overclock at all. The website even says this VGA needs 150W https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/radeon-rx-570 I'm totally baffled. Then how should I calculate how big my PSU should be if the basic math CPU 65W VGA 150W is less than 400W does not work?
  9. Thank you all so much for the quick help. My PSU can be trusted. It is a Xigmatek X-POWER II 450 with 400W real power (as I see in the table on the box). It is also of 80 Plus standard. My confusion originated from a rather popular formula from youtube guides: Recommended PSU = CPU TDP + VGA TDP + 200W I assume 200W was just a safe advice? In my case my CPU (65W) and VGA definitely won't exceed 300W. The remaining 100W could well be spent on 2-3 SSDs and fans right?
  10. Hi guys, My system is supported by a 400W PSU and consists of the following: Ryzen 5 3400G - TDP 65W Three case fans, two M.2 SSD and 2 RAMs on motherboard (Gigabyte Aorus Pro) NO VGA yet NO plan to use more storage (SSD&HDD) I plan to buy the "GIGABYTE Radeon™ RX 570 Gaming 4G" (its source page recommends a 450W PSU) https://www.gigabyte.com/vn/Graphics-Card/GV-RX570GAMING-4GD/sp#sp My question is: Do I really need to buy a better PSU before I add this VGA? Coz my power consumption seems so low If this PSU can actually support the VGA, how many SATA3 SSDs can I add before the power supply becomes insufficient? Do all 6+2 pin connector of all PSU provide the same amount of power? Or I need to check what PSU fits with what VGA first? Many thanks in advance.
  11. I guess I gotta study this much more carefully before paying for anything... ? Just a last question though, do you think my set is good for min setting PUBG and max setting DotA 2, World of Tanks and War Thunder? (if you play any of those games) Thanks! Ryzen 5 3400G GIGABYTE B450 AORUS ELITE G.SKILL Trident Z bus 3000 dual channel 2x8GB
  12. What about the "overclocking" side please? Does the frequency an indicator of overclocking? If I assemble those 3 parts (CPU, MOBO and RAM), they will be running at 2933MHz and there will be no overclocking right?
  13. Hi guys, I am a newbie with some months of study in PC building and was about to buy my rig with at least some confidence when there was one thing that greatly worried me... I didn't like bottlenecks and overclock, so what I did was matching the frequency of my CPU, RAM and MOBO: My CPU is Ryzen 5 3400G - System memory specification 2933MHz My MOBO is GIGABYTE B450 AORUS ELITE - Support for DDR4 3600(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/2933/2667/2400/2133 MHz memory modules My RAM is G.SKILL Trident Z - Bus 3000MHz All around 2933MHz, so I thought it was great until I realized that I could find NOONE on the Internet doing the same matching. Is my understanding about this frequency thing wrong? Should I match components this way? Please kindly help. Thank you!
