PLEASE HELP WANT TO UPGRADE CPU IN 180WATT SYSTEM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a prebuilt pc that ive had for around 6 months when i got it it came with the following specs
Ryzen 3 3200g
M.2 ssd 260 or some gb
180 watt psu
I have since put in the following
Gt 1030 for around 4 months then recently upgraded to gt 1650
Put in a 1 terabite harddrive 7200 rpm 

I know im really pushing it with a 75tdp graphics card in a 180watt psu system but from my experience my system is running amazing other than some high temps
Ive done some searching and ive found that the cpu i use is a 65tdp and the one i want to upgrade to is also 65tdp it is a ryzen 5 1600. I want to upgrade it so i can have less stutter in games while i have things like discord and google in the backround. I also think an upgrade is nice as when playing games like apex legends my cpu usage is always at 90-100% i think this is why my game stutters and dips below 60 fps often other games like doom eternal run super smooth at around 70fps

Again to recap i want to upgrade cpu but i am worried if it will be too much for my psu to handle it is a proprietary motherboard so i cant simply upgrade it or at least i dont know with what. Again the cpu i have is 65tdp and the one i want is also 65tdp but it makes no sense that it doesnt use more as it is a more powerfull cpu 

The model of the pc is hp desktop-m01-f0014


Someone PLEASE HELP

You really need a new PSU before you do any upgrades. I believe your GT1030 is the main bottleneck here in games, so I would upgrade that first. Were you going for the 1600 or 1600AF? I don't think the 1600 is much of an upgrade except for 2 more cores.


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

Well i have upgraded to a gtx 1650 already and i just want to squeeze in the best cpu possible as thats the one causing the issues im having also i cannot find a better psu that im possitive will work i dont want to buy one thats unreliable or that wont pair with the motherboard as it is a proprietary motherboard which means i cant use any psu.

What motherboard is it?

You only now told us? Then you have pushed it as far as you can, don't do more. If you want a better system buy a dell optiplex that uses a standard PSU and slap in a brand new one along with an RX 580

I mentioned upgrading to a gtx 1650 in the original post and as far as upgrading the system im only interested in upgtading cpu and maybe a better psu as instead of using 24pins the motherboard has a 6pin thingy so i cant just buy any psu

I mean you could buy an adapter if you bought a new case and an ATX PSU, I just read as far as GT 1030, sorry. They do make adapters.

I read about your system online, and according to the model number you supplied us with, HP says you're running a 3200U, not 3200G, which I suspect is why you're having stutter issues, as that's only a dual core. If I were you, I'd restore the system to how you bought it, return it, and get something with a better upgrade path

So i could buy like a 400watt evga psu and an adapter and it will work? Can the motherboard take that or is the motherboard not a factor? Im still very new to pc and this is a very unique problem im having.   Also another question can i just put in a different motherboard into it? Will the case support it?

Weird. You can upgrade to another 65 watt chip though, but that 180 watt PSU is quite low.

1. Delete facebook.

2. Depending on the form factor of the motherboard yes it is possible to stick it in another case with minimal problems. If that fails a cardboard box also works. Do you have the exact model of the system so @NZgamer and I can check for you?

Yeah, it's gonna be fine. TDP \not only the power draw, but the amount of heat it's allowed to put out, and AMD just makes efficient chips, so don't worry about that
