  1. That video is a joke. You don't ever need to clean your motherboard from a functionality perspective, but if you want it to look good you could spray it with canned air or use a paper towel (or qtip for hard to reach places) soaked in isopropyl
  2. I am an Indian. Am I able to enter in Rog Rig Reboot 2021.

    Because I really needed it because my laptop is just a piece of Junk. Only 2gb Ram

      My machine has 1 GB of RAM, did i win something? 😄

  3. Part of the clickbait title/thumbnail -- As a company it's a no-brainer since it gets like 25% more views, and the actual video content itself is still roughly the same.
  4. if it clicks, on both sides, it's in. if you don't see any gold contacts, you're probably fine.
  5. No, it won't affect the speed of anything. The first PCIe slot is directly connected to the CPU, so nothing at all could slow it down. the 2nd M.2 slot is either direct to the CPU, or through the chipset (I don't remember), but it doesn't really matter too much either way. Installing an M.2 SSD in the 2nd slot will disable the PCIe E2 and E3 slots, page 18 of the manual that came with your motherboard.
  6. I'd personally wait until mid-january at least -- then hopefully parts can go back in stock, and Intel might be closer to releasing their new rocket-lake CPUs which could beat AMD's for gaming. (at the very least, it will drive prices down.)
  7. Right now is both a great and horrible time to build a PC. Great because everything's new. New GPUs, new CPUs, and you're getting top-tier performance. Horrible because nothing is in stock, and because lower-budget offerings (like a better-value 8-core AMD 5000 series CPU) are being held off until the supply shortage is solved. If you want to build now, I'd advise a Ryzen 5600X or intel 10700K. (fast memory is also a good idea, especially for Ryzen get 3600Mhz). For the GPU I'd get a 3070 if possible, or a 3060Ti if a 3070 doesn't fit in the budget. However, it all depen
  8. Ryzen desktop CPUs have 24 lanes total. (memory channels are different, and don't use up PCIe lanes) Usually, the allocation is this: 16 Lanes to the first PCIe slot 4 lanes to an M.2 slot 4 lanes to the chipset (meaning everything else like USB, SATA, etc.) X470, B550, and X570 have the ability to split (called Bifurcate) their 16x PCIe slot into 2 8-lane slots for SLI. I'd recommend getting a good B550 board
  9. Did you initialize the drive? Go to "Create and format hard disk partitions" in windows and see if it shows up there.
  10. Make sure the RAM is actually running at 3600Mhz (XMP is enabled)
  11. 80c watercooled on a 5600X is higher than I'd expect, even on something like a 120mm rad. It's possible the CPU is limiting boost clocks due to temperature. try re-mounting the CPU cooler maybe? Another thing that makes a huge difference with Zen 3 is memory. What's your memory speed and CL latency? (and what does your friend have)
  12. 850W should be fine with your current hardware config, but 1000W gives you more room for upgrades in the future (such as another GPU, lots of HDDs, etc.) If it's not too much of an extra cost, I don't see why not. It gives you peace of mind that the PSU is definitely not a problem if your PC ever shuts off.
  13. If so, then good choice on the CPU/GPU balance. For CPU-intensive workloads, this is a very well balanced system!
  14. Looks like good specs to me. Personally, I'd strongly try to get an RTX 3060Ti. It might be more expensive (and harder to get), but I think you'll thank yourself in the future. the 3060Ti is a MUCH better card, even if you might need to save up for a few more weeks (or wait a few more weeks for it to be back in stock). Other than that, everything looks really good.
