  1. Have you tried clearing CMOS and going from there to see if anything changes at all??? I would clear CMOS after upgrading a CPU to clear any defaults you had with your old processor.
  2. Ordered some more LEGOs but this time online to spend some VIP points on some freebies. Only wish I can get them at the LEGO store instead of only online.
  3. Depends on if you care about raytracing and the amount of VRAM going into the future.
  4. I used to have a case that was like this, but it was an OEM. It was a mid tower and the PSU I installed was not modular, and cable management was a pain since there was no room to move the cables around due to the 5.25" bays a couple inches where all the cables come out of the PSU. Nowadays, no I don't use a case with a PSU on top, nor have I other than the scenario above with cases you can buy online. I personally do not like them sitting at the top as they look "dated", like the case is from the early 2000s or earlier. Bottom mounted reduces the center of gravity, as some PSUs ca
  5. That is amazing!!! I recall that LEGO Vestas Wind Turbine so it's nice to see a product made by a company you used to work for. Thank you for the work you do!
  6. For sure yeah, it's basically a D15 that is off-center to allow for clearance between the top (closest to the CPU) PCIe slot and is just one 140mm fan. They should come with the necessary clips to add an additional 140mm (with hole spacing of 120mm) or 120mm fan.
  7. The temperature difference between the two (D15 and D15S) is pretty marginal and depends on the CPU it is being paired up with. If it's not a heat generator, then you won't see too big of a difference.
  8. Ok no that's perfectly good paste then. As long as it doesn't come out hard or very wet and then dry like the oil separated. Are you sure you put enough on?? A small pea sized dot in the center of the CPU should be plenty for a Ryzen processor.
  9. How long have you had this paste??? Thermal paste tends to go bad after being stored unused for a couple years or unless it starts to separate into different components of the mixture.
  10. If your exhaust fan that is on a 3 pin header connected to the motherboard with the LEDs dimming, that is normal. The LEDS run off of the same voltage that is being supplied to power the fan's electric motor. So, if the fan is only spinning at 5V, the LEDs will be pretty dimmed, if the fan is running at 12V (the max voltage assuming its a 12V fan), then the LEDs will be at their brightest. It's dependent off of your fan curve with voltages.
  11. Definitely try update the BIOS as it will improve stability and compatibility with RAM usually, especially after new processors were released and some boards may/may not support them.
  12. Had to update it to the Doom Turtle!!
  13. True. Haven't been in the market for a new GPU in awhile so that's good to know they are getting in the GPU market, just questionable quality/reliability in the long term compared to already well known names in the GPU market.
  14. I mean...come on guys, the Spider-Man Trilogy!!!
