  1. Hi, there, With the idea of increasing the performance of my hardware without taking too much risk, I overclocked the DRAM and my CGU, I didn't touch the CPU. To overclock it, I used : DRAM Calculator for Ryzen by choosing the "Calculate Safe" option and I changed the timings via MSI Command Center (I had already changed the frequency from 2166MHz to 3000MHz via the BIOS and took the XMP 2933MHz timings). I saw that the CPU had a lot to gain. I then proceeded to overclock my graphic card, to do so, I used MSI Afterburner following the instructions here As for the DRAM OC, it's the software that calculates the best settings, I increased the VRAM memory by 991MHz by hand, because I had read that it was a graphic card that had a high OC potential thanks to the VRAM memory OC, and I read in comments that the maximum value before crash was 1000MHz. I changed two settings under "NVIDIA settings" : Results : I'm happy with the results, the hardware does not heat up and the games work in very good quality (often in Ultra). Performance is equal to and even better than GTX 1660 Ti and Super "stock".
  2. Hello everyone! I'm back to give you some news, my PC works very well, for the PSU I took the Be Quiet Straight Power 650 W 80+ Gold. Here is my complete configuration: CG: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1660 Gaming OC 6Gb CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Ventirad: Noctua NH-U12S Chromax Black MB: MSI B450 Tomahawk RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) 3000 MHz CAS 15 HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB - 7200 rpm SSD: Crucial MX500 500GB SSD: Crucial MX500 1TB PSU: Be Quiet Straight Power 11 650W 80+ Gold Case: Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Fans: Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 140mn (X2) at the front in suction + 1 of 200mn on top in expulsion + 1 of 140mn at the back in expulsion. OS : Windows 10 Pro 64bits I'm now trying to set the timings for my RAM, I'll open another topic.
  3. OK, thanks for your feedback; I'll let you know as soon as possible. See you later
  4. A friend's son will come and check the whole PC and help me, but at the moment there are no possible deliveries or authorized exits because of COVID-19...
  5. Yes it's a piece of "Mosfet" that I found afterwards in the case of the PC. The PSU exploded when I wanted to install Windows, no problem when I entered the BIOS...
  6. I don't know why it happened, I turned the PC on the first time and I went into the BIOS to see, then I wanted to install Windows and it blew up, I turned the power back on and I turned it on again and then it exploded? I bought it from Amazon, they gave me a refund, now I'm looking for another one... I don't know if any other components were affected...
  7. Okay thank you all, that's nice.
  8. Okay for a 550W PSU, so no problem with gaming and overclocking?
  9. Excuse me for my English, I'm French... PSU is out, I'm looking for another... MB : MSI - B450 Tomahawk CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 (3.4 GHz) Ventirad: Noctua NH-U12S Chromax-black CG: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Gaming OC 6G RAM: DDR4 Corsair Vengeance LPX - Black (2 x 8 GB) 3000 MHz, Case 15 SSD1: Crucial MX500 - 500 GB - 3d nand (2.5 inch / 7mm) *SSD2: Crucial MX500 - 1Tb - 3d nand (2.5 inch / 7mm) HDD : Seagate BarraCuda, 1Tb - 3.5" - 7200 rpm - 64 MB - Sata III Case: Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Fans: Be Quiet SILENT WINGS 3 - 140mm (x2) OS : Windows 10 Pro 64bits *PSU : Be Quiet! Straight Power 11 650W 80+ Gold ?? or 750W ??? *Components to buy Airflow: 2 fans Be Quiet 140mn in suction in front. 1 Thermaltake fan 140mn in expulsion at the rear. 1 Thermaltake 200mn expulsion fan on the top. 1 Noctua fan 120mn in suction on the front side towards the back. In the future I will add two or three SSDs and a HDD. For the PSU 650W are enough or should I take one of 750W? I think overclock RAM, MB, CPU... Thanks for your help! Michel.
