  1. Yes, higher % is better. It might drop like 1 or 2 percent but considering most PSU's nowadays have 10+ year warranty's I doubt it'll be anything noticeable
  2. At the very least I'd contact AMD about this; if enough people report it they'll recognize this as an issue. If they don't offer a replacement cooler, I personally would probably do what you said and get something like a hyper 212 since you'd get a better cooler/not be sitting without a cpu.
  3. Seconded, plus if you don't care too much about the speed but do want reliability it could be worth running 2 identical drives in RAID 1, since that'll keep your data save even in the case that a drive fails.
  4. This is a much better balanced system OP, I'd say get this and save that ~200 dollars or spend what you saved on a 2080 super gpu.
  5. Looks pretty good, though you can probably save quite a lot of cash on the motherboard front since you'll only be pairing it with a 3600, and like Mondas42 sayd 32gb is kinda overkill. Should be able to fit in a 2080 super if you go with 16gbs of ram and something like a b450 max board.
  6. The one called core voltage
  7. Do both sticks work on their own, in both of the slots? In that case it would probably be a motherboard issue, might be worth updating bios.
  8. Is that under load (aka you're doing something intesive with it)? 800mhz is likely the base clock whilst 2ghz will be the boost clock. Fire up cinebench, a game or really anything that'll fully utilize the cpu and you should see it hit 2ghz (or come close if the all-core speed is a bit lower).
  9. You could always start out with the stock cooler since they do the job just fine if you're not overclocking.
  10. Yeah should work just fine as long as you have the 4 physical slots, I have 2 seperate sets of 1x8gb in my pc that work just fine.
  11. Could you check in resource monitor in task manager? This should give us a better idea of what programs are using ram, since not everything is shown in task manager (e.g. windows processes).
  12. In these multi gpu situatiuons a blower is better than a traditional dual fan design, since the blower cooler will move all the hot air out of the case. If, like in the example of the photo you gave us, it were all aftermarket coolers you'd have 4gpus spewing out hot air right next to eachother, so that hot air will very likely end up going back into another card. Basically for single gpu setups you want a two or three fan design, for multiple gpu's packed closely you'd want blowers.
  13. In the last pic you can see that there is roughly 120 gb allocated. I htink if you right click on it, you can allocate it to the drive IIRC.
  14. Got a 1600, mainly just because it came with a good box cooler, good long term support for the cpu compared to the intel chips at the time (7000 series) and was banking on games becoming more multithreaded in the future, which I'd say payed of.
  15. I honestly think the only thing they could add is an official IP rating, though that costs money and excluding it probably helps keep the price down somewhat.
