  1. I had the same problem when I bought my Ryzen 5 3600 (technically still have). Unfortunately, I've tried all the things mentioned above to no avail. In the end decided to slap a beefy cooler on top of it and call it a day. You can try undervolting it but I really doubt you will be able to do it without a significant performance loss (especially single-core performance) and stability issues.
  2. That's not how it works. 80 Plus certificate has nothing to do with how much power a PSU can provide at full load. You can read about it here: 80 Plus - Wikipedia. That's a really low quality unit, even worse than your current one. I wouldn't use it for powering a budget system, let alone yours. I suggest looking into PSU tier list and picking one of the power supplies from an A tier that can provide 600W or more:
  3. Depends on the exact PSU model (and other parts of course). Remember, higher wattage ≠ better quality.
  4. That is probably a newer model of Deepcool DA series power supplies, which has a DC-DC regulation (internals). Considering that at this moment it's pretty much impossible to build a PC with a solid discrete GPU at a reasonable price, I should just go for it. Compared to many other pre-built PCs in our country, the PSU is pretty decent and will probably work just fine. Though, I suggest replacing it after the warranty expires.
  5. What a monitor has to do with how the game is rendered?
  6. Everything is compatible with each other but there's a lot that needs to be changed: The power supply unit is a pretty crappy one. Refer to the PSU tier list for more information. The motherboard is not good. It is barely enough to use the full potential of that 6-Core processor. You can get a much better one for not that much more. There's no SSD and without one your PC will feel sluggish no matter how powerful other components are. The chassis has poor airflow because of the closed off front. I suggest watching GamersNexus chassis reviews to know what makes a good c
  7. Quite a bit better. How much can you spend? From which store are you planning to buy?
  8. If you gonna power something that needs 750W, you should buy a quality power supply unit. And those units, as you said, usually cost more.
  9. A power supply doesn't blow hot air into a PC case. So no, higher efficiency doesn't affect component longevity at all.
  10. Higher wattage power supply doesn't improve lifetime of components in any way.
  11. For what reason exactly? So that the buyer wastes money on something he will never fully use? Also 80+ certificate has nothing to do with the quality of a PSU. Don't know why you mentioned it.
  12. If you don't install or give admin permissions to random stuff that you find online, you don't need anything more than a Microsoft Defender.
  13. If we're still talking about that Aerocool, it has only one review from 2014. Maybe it was passable in 2014 (as you can tell from the rating the reviewer gave) but the unit that is sold now has been downgraded (check the link that I posted previously). Knowing that, I wouldn't recommend powering anything with that crap. If we're now talking about your current PSU, I haven't found a single proper review. This unit has been working for you for so long because your system doesn't even draw 200W under full load. If it were powering something more power hungry, that wouldn't be the case
  14. I'm not saying that they can't. I'm just saying that this particular unit is bad. Almost every brand have released both bad and good quality units. For example, Aerocool has some pretty good units, e.g. Aerocool Project 7 (review). So you need to recommend a particular unit not a brand. Also, I can ask you the same question: how can you be so sure that the PSU we are talking about is good? Because from what I can find, it is the opposite of good: I'm not telling people that they need to buy $100 power supplies when their system doesn't cost more than $500. But I also don't recomme
