  1. I see. Try looking at the X570 Aorus Elite, X570 Tuf Gaming or the MSI X570 Unify then. Choose the one that has features that suit your needs better, all of those are decent budget boards.
  2. Not true, all manufacturers have both good and bad boards. It just depends on the particular model. The MSI B550 Unify-X is great, the B550 AORUS PRO V2 is a decent choice too. If you're looking for a motherboard on a "budget", you should really be looking at the B550 chipset because you'll get a better board for the price.
  3. The Ryzen 5 3600 would be a significant upgrade over the 2600X in games, consider getting that instead. You can buy the expensive LL fans later, or just get a cheaper alternative. As for the GPU, the 5600X should be quite a bit faster than the 1660 Super, considering it's around the RTX 2060 in performance
  4. S21 Ultra is obviously better than the S20 Ultra. Considering the iPhone, the S21 Ultra also should be generally better because of more versatile cameras and better display but you may very well prefer the iOS and the Apple ecosystem.
  5. Your other thread has been removed. Please refrain from posting the same questions in multiple subforums.
  6. It's a good PSU, but it's new as you said and it might've been broken from the start. Another thing is - is it plugged directly into the wall? Maybe the electrical installation in your house isn't too good and causes voltage fluctuations and so on with higher power draw of your new components, and a small UPS would do the trick to stabilize that? P.S. I would call the 11900K a sidegrade at best from the 10900K, but mostly a downgrade
  7. If you're buying new, and you're looking for a board to use paired with a 5950X, you're most likely going to be looking at X570 boards. Any new X570 board will support the 5950X out of the box.
  8. I usually care a lot for my hardware, so I always sell it and get some of the new hardware cost refunded. Unless there's a friend or family member that could use it, then I'll just give it to them free.
  9. Since everything is "hackable" and has security holes that we don't even know about, I believe the real question is: how are those vulnerabilities exploited - if there's a vulnerability that requires physical access to the machine to be used, then I think you've got more security problems than the vulnerability itself. But if such design issue can be used and executed remotely, then it becomes a large problem.
  10. HPE and DELL are good but most expensive. Fujitsu and Lenovo are just as good in reality, but cheaper usually. If you want a more budget-friendly one, you can look at SuperMicro as they make their own servers as well as supply tons of companies with their servers as OEM devices for the companies to brand as theirs. That being said, you would probably be best off if you used a 1U server as the "head" of the system, it should be equipped with SSDs, and use a budget-friendly storage array for data. Something like a Lenovo/IBM Storwize V3000-series (V3700 for example) with another d

    Small mouse upgrade - I went back to another Lo…

    Heyyy! Not cool man, not cool...
  12. Small mouse upgrade - I went back to another Logitech G502 after using Steelseries Rival 600 for the past 3 years! Nothing beats that G502 scroll 😉

    But this time it's a limited Hero K/DA edition:

      If it wasn't for the Overwatch stuff that would be a decent looking mouse.

  13. Question about the boldened part of your reply - why? Why wouldn't anyone else be able to do what you described?
  14. It has nothing to do with that. Chinese Communist Party is extremely sensitive to matters regarding PR of any kind but especially Taiwan, as officially they recognize that Taiwan is China, so Gigabyte even making that distinction on their Chinese website was bold to say the least. The "apology" is clearly made so the party officials don't take reprisal for that, as they could easily temporarily or even permanently forbid sales of Gigabyte products.

    TIL Valorant's skin system is one of the worst…

    Yeah, it's goddamn ridiculous. At least there's no like $1000+ skins because there's no skin trading.
  16. B250 motherboards are locked in terms of overclocking, so there's not much you can do. You can enable multicore enhancement if you have such setting, and in theory you could overclock the BCLK I believe, though this is a messy way of trying to overclock because it overclocks some other components on the motherboard as well
  17. What could help in this case (cinebench temps) would be using a different LLC (Load Line Calibration) setting, this pretty much determines what's the voltage curve depending on the CPU load. Each motherboard manufacturer implements that a little differently, so I can't say which setting would you have to choose. Preferably the one that has higher voltage droop. Honestly when applying a thermal paste it's actually better to use more than you need than less than you need, so applying more of it in general is a good practice. Your IHS may not be perfectly flat, but thermal paste should mo
  18. Well, since clock speeds in modern CPUs depend on a combination of temperature and power requirements it may perform better if it's kept at lower temps. In my case the CPU runs about 4.85GHz in lightly threaded workloads and 4.55-4.6GHz in multithreaded ones like Cinebench or other stress tests. What's the thermal paste you're using? Also, why did you write in the original post that your case side panel is open? It should be closed for optimal case airflow, provided you have a correct fan setup (usually front & bottom are intake and top and rear are exhaust).
  19. Yes, this is a setting that you set in BIOS (PPT), it limits how many watts of power your CPU can draw and purely stock would be 105W. If it's reaching 140W then it's unlocked in the BIOS to do that, and it's pretty common for motherboard vendors to do that out-of-the-box to get higher performance at the expense of thermals. What are your temperatures when gaming?
  20. Those figures only apply if your CPU runs fully stock, without PBO enabled and adheres to the TDP number. Mine doesn't, because I've removed those limits so higher temps are indeed expected Also, different workloads use different instruction sets and cinebench is one in particular that heats those CPUs up, for instance in AIDA64 CPU stress test it doesn't get nearly as hot and rarely hits 80C for me.
  21. Well, my 5800X runs at stock settings with PBO enabled and all voltage/current/wattage limits removed. In gaming it runs around 70-75C, but in Cinebench R20 it can reach even 88C. And this is in a Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic case that has 9 fans and a 360mm Corsair AIO cooler. The thermal paste is Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, so I've got a pretty high-end setup there and the temps are still quite high. Idle temps are irrelevant, voltages usually are very high on Ryzen chips when they're in idle. It runs 45-60C when browsing the web for me too.
  22. In general your clock speeds and performance seems a tiny bit lower than what they should be, but regarding the temperatures I had the same case when I upgraded from 3700X to 5800X. Apparently the 5800X does run that hot and that's by design according to AMD, to get higher performance as the silicon itself is made so it can run at that temperature. https://www.pcgamer.com/amd-views-ryzen-5000-cpu-temperatures-up-to-95c-as-typical-and-by-design/ Hope this answers your question.
  23. It's not a big deal at all. 1.45V is above stock spec, but it's well within margins of safety for DDR4 RAM. Higher-end RAM runs at higher voltages due to higher frequencies or better timings like in this case. This message is just a note, which honestly is quite pointless.
  24. No it won't. 3700X is perfectly sufficient for a 3060.
