Wanting to Upgrade my Current Gaming PC to my Dream PC

Recommended Posts

GPU at 10% usage wait what.  That doesn't sound right for Warzone.

 

The Lian Li is good.  I think they might have a slightly newer version called the XL or something, not sure.

I think the XL is a full ATX tower no? Will i need that

 

yeah I'm super confused about why I crash and have my GPU at 10% usage

and I haven't been able to get anyone to solve it for me yet... :,(

even when im in the leageu of legends client searching for a game my power usage goes between high and very high

Is the GPU usage at 10% even when not crashing?  The 3600 should be more than enough for Warzone.

Try installing MSI Afterburner.  You can set up the OSD to monitor your GPU core clocks, memory clocks, GPU usage and temps.  Might give you an idea of what's going on.

I have MSI Afterburner up but I only know how to monitor my Specs Min, Current, and Max values

 

Maybe my system needs better ventilations and cooling?

This is a really really old and short guide I wrote many years ago, but the principle should be the same.  Alternatively, I could remote to your PC to set it up, but that depends on your level of trust on a random guy on the internet lol.

 I tried pressing F12 and nothing happens, does it have to be in full screen mode?

 

Also, some more questions that I'm still wondering about:

1) Is a 80+ Gold 850W PSU bad? or even not worth at $180 cost?

2) Are those case fans i ordered compatible with the Lian Li integrated LED controls? 

3) Where can I get help with water cooling?

F12 is a keybind I set so you might have to set it yourself.  In Rivatuner Statistics Server, set detection to Low and Stealth Mode on.  Warzone really doesn't like anything hooking into it's EXE.

 

1)  I think for that price you might be able to get one from Corsair/CoolerMaster/Seasonic?

2) Not too sure.  Corsair uses a corsair-only connector for ARGB.

3) You can just get an All-in-One from CM,Corsair,NZXT.  They are all generally as good as each other.

Your 3600 has 6 cores and 12 threads, it should be showing more than just 1-4 :P

 

You can also take a screenshot of Task Manager, CPU tab.  Right click, Change Graph to, Logical.  Take it while in a game of Warzone.

 

Sure, link the vid.

72c on CPU and 64c on GPU is pretty cool actually.  Not sure what triggers "Very High" on your psu monitoring however.  That PC shouldn't take more than 300w.

 

Warzone is also quite badly made...it has a lot of random crashing issues with no reason why.  Rosewill makes pretty decent budget stuff.  Might want to check reviews for the specific model however.

 

On the matter of storage, a good SATA SSD like the MX500 is more than enough for the vast majority of people.  NVME speeds are really only noticeable right now in large file copies, which isn't a typical use case.

Also, are these good SSD options? And which one is better?

Crucial MX500 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive 

Crucial MX500 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Both are $160 CAN

Good ones. One is SATA, other SATA M.2

Not much difference otherwise.

That makes no difference in their speed? And how can I tell if something is NVME? I see none that state it on pcpartpicker (NVME is faster, right? lol)

Neither is NVME, in normal usage there is almost no difference if SATA or NVME.

They both are SATA 3 (600MB/s theoretical, 550MB/s actual max.)

OK thank you very much, which one should i get for a Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic case or again does it not matter much?

It rather more is a case of preference ... M.2 SSD's are smaller, but usually motherboard has only 2 of them, as 2.5" SATA ports there are a lot more.

Thats QLC flash technology that isn't too good. MX500 is TLC probably.

I'm not too SSD savvy to recommend things, but I'd take MX500. Maybe a bit more durable...

It's good enough.  Unless you're writing 1TB a day for the entirety of the warranty period, you probably won't ever wear the SSD out in the lifetime you have this PC.
