  1. B550 will do fine for gaming and streaming, x570 often have better power delivery for the higher end of ryzen processors, more m.2 slots for more nvme drives and more x16 slots but other than that it is basically the same performance unless you are pushing exotic cooling overclocks.
  2. So there are different turbo speeds based on many factors, temperatures are one, nunber of cores, power, time at turbo speed etc which all play a part of the turbo clock the cpu will run at. Your cpu is not thermal throttling but temperature turbo limiting or core turbo limiting (more cores active =lower frequency) Best solution is get the cpu colder, it will move to higher clock speeds for longer. 84c is definitely above what the cpu will want to be running at for higher clock speeds. It's not throttling below base clock but it won't turbo any higher)
  3. It's slightly better than the other chinese desktop mics, there isn't a huge difference in them until you hit $100 for just the mic.
  4. It seems I'm running on old info, newer systems will still be stable but run in single channel after the 8gb is filled. Average day to day it shouldn't be noticeable, only gaming or heavier workloads like editing or rendering would slow it down to single stick speed (which you have now)
  5. My older x58 system would cause all kinds of havoc with mixed size sticks but that might have been a legacy triple channel quirk they solved with more recent dual channel
  6. I didn't realize it was a whole case, from the picture it was just an external 5.25in drive, you can probably get an itx board in there with not alot of trouble, slide out motherboard tray would be tight but with super short standoffs and some trimming it should work
  7. That's just motherboard flex, I wouldn't recommend wiggling the cooler on purpose as you can crack traces(Internal circuit board circuits) Overtightening often shows up as no post (cpu pins are bending away from the contacts), instability (added pressure bending internal circuits on the motherboard), or very high temps on individual cores (cooler overtight on one screw causing less surface contact on parts)
  8. In dual channel the system will be unstable, dual channel writes (and reads) from both sticks at the same time. Kind of like raid0 for memory, with different sized sticks system crashes when you write past the 4gb on both sticks. You can run single channel mixed sizes with no issues
  9. Without the 5.25 drive? Probably, with it in there highly doubtful. Barely tall enough for a pi zero board by the look of it
  10. With virtual machines, yes. Most other configurations have been hit and miss with major driver issues and random black screen boots
  11. Could even get a g1/4 to 1/8in step down fitting or distribution plate and a bunch of raspberry pi cooling blocks to independently cool each vrm.
  12. https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i5-6600K/GeForce_RTX_2070_SUPER/0Fs14oo4/16/100/ Apparently it's good for 4k, not that much of a bottleneck eith at 1440p when you look at game stats. Would still be better than upgrading the cpu/motherboard and having to keep the same gpu.
  13. Overclocked 6600k won't bottleneck the 2070 super Most bang for the buck upgrade (besides the 2070) is usually monitor, a good 1440p high brightness 100hz+ monitor will make all your games look so much better. Assuming you don't already have a great monitor. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-32-Inch-Curved-Monitor-LC32JG56QQNXZA/dp/B07R6YFTYF/ref=mp_s_a_1_43?dchild=1&keywords=1440p+144hz+monitor&qid=1603255566&sprefix=1440p&sr=8-43
