  1. So I am in the middle of my build and I just realized that I used to have a Intel cpu and a nvidia gpu and now I am going full amd and plan on keeping all of my hard drives. What drivers should I install and what drivers should I delete. I have heard about ddu and ran that before taking my gpu out and will install with the amd software. But I am not sure what to do with the cpu.
  2. It might be a overheating issue what are your cpu temps?
  3. Sorry forgot to mention that I would go with a air cooler because they are cheaper than a aio

  5. what kind of mouse do you have because it might have a software controlled dpi setting
  6. Alright thanks for helping. I think I got my issues fixed now
  7. Does ryzen need 3600mhz ram or is 3200 speed fine?
  8. did not know that thank you. Also don't the amd gpu have some sort of driver issues?
  9. ok I plan on using this rig for a long time before I upgrade so I most likely will go with the 3600
  10. Do you know what 2nd to 3rd gen is good for my needs? is the 2700x any good or do you think I should spend the extra cash and get a 3rd gen?
  11. So I am in the middle of planing out a new build. But I cannot seem to chose what cpu to go with. These are the cpu's I am looking at currently ryzen 3600,3600x and the 3700x. Also are the 2600 and 1800x cpu any good in 2020? I mainly use this pc for school work and some gaming on the side like at 1080p want more than 60 FPS. My budget is $1500 CAD and my gpu that I will be going with is the gigabyte 2070 super.
  12. Well usually i play GTA V, Red dead redemption 2 all at medium to high settings. But the 1070 is old so I would say 2060 or 2060 super.
  13. noctua's if you don't mind the poop color
  14. You could try and find used fans on ebay that are good condition. Or put on a ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme IV if you don't mind the looks and the no rgb.
  15. As said above 32 gb is too much for just gaming. I have a 1070 and it is hitting +75 FPS with mid to high settings.
  16. when I launch apps nothing happens it is normal, and on startup there is also no noise. Only when I go to access files. Could it be overheating?
  17. really my hard drive failed in 3 years. Well it is going to be a pain to move all my files
  18. So I have this 4tb WD hard drive about 3 years old now and every time I go to use it. Like access the files it makes a whirring noise and then it freezes the file explorer window then after the whirring is done the frozen window is gone and I can access the file or make a new folder or new text document. Is there any way to make the hard drive not do that and so that I don't need to wait for it to boot up then I can access the files. I have tried to go into the power plan and change it from balanced to high performance and I went to advanced settings and set the hard disk sleep option to 0 minutes and still nothing the hard drive is still doing the same thing. thanks
  19. yes I was just going to buy this ram. But it is CL 18. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07FBVYFKH/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1
  20. so I currently don't have any good ram I have some ram at 2666mhz that was of my old build. What ram do you think I should go with
