  1. Yes, minimum refrsh rate is usually 30 or 45hz, and it should work to the max refresh rate of the monitor. With a gsync card you must use displayport to get functionality. But as long as you're in the range it will display at the rate the frames are being rendered, 60, 120, anywhere in between... it's quite the creature comfort. there's vsync stuff for if/when frames rendered exceed the displays refresh capabilities it displays the most recent complete frame
  2. It's best done on a clean install of windows so you don't break any programs or anything while redirecting. From that window you screenshotted, right click the desktop folder and select properties, click the location tab, read information, D:\Desktop is a great location, or use the "move..." button to select the location you want the files placed on the desktop to accumulate. follow the same procedure for all the other file storage directories (documents, downloads, music, pictures, and videos) changing the D:\* to fit. Installing programs is usually just remembering to change the drive
  3. Multiple factors at play... @sgt_assassin123 What case do you have? how is radiator mounted with tube placement? How are fans positioned? I 've been forgetting since I have a behemoth radiator now, but temp left to roam above ~82C consistently led to lower performance for me. So that's why I mentioned that. The bit about limiting ppt, ppt=power=heat (Conservation of energy, electricity delivers power, computer does computing, power becomes heat) and personal experience is these cpus will do thermal runaway junk if the manufacturer stock settings are particularly bad. Haven't
  4. Mixing kits can cause strange issues, but can also work flawlessly, total toss up... I generally don't recommend mixing kits because the potential headaches.
  5. Oh, in that case it probably didn't even hurt anything
  6. For gaming a 5800x Should work well and allow you to save some money
  7. It's possible you put some wear and tear on it, degrading maximum performance a little Even 1.4v is high unless you have excellent cooling, I recommend staying at/under 1.2v under load at 50C+
  8. Temps could indicate poor silicon in cpu, could indicate problems with AIO. In bios set thermal limit to 82-85, (pbo boosting tends to dump clocks while still getting hotter in my experience) You can also experiment with ppt limit in pbo settings to reduce heat production. I think 5800x does good at 105w ppt... maybe a bit higher, memory fuzzy atm. Test to confirm bester performance
  9. Remove card, check slot for debris, check gold pins on gpu, clean gently with pencil eraser.... *Headscratch
  10. Tdp's from Intel and AMD are meaningless. 11900k is listed on Intel's site as 95w TDP, actual power draw full load is ~200w. 3600 "65w TDP" Power draw a bit over 105w full load. You're best off setting the temperature throttle limit to 83-85, it keeps the cpu from dumping clocks to manage heat. *And going with a non-stock cooler
  11. 1. define high performance 2. Invent a time machine, travel back to before the pandemic exacerbated shortages, or travel forward past them, and get a gpu at a decent price. Unfortunately finding a solid gpu at an affordable price is mighty tough right now
  12. Well, typical power draw of ~350w is the same as having a 350w space heater (https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Gaming-PC-vs-Space-Heater-Efficiency-511/), they also have short term power spikes into the 400s (as my understanding goes) so they produce a fair bit of heat. As stated the raw power consumption can be a bit, but it depends on your usage, and the cost largely depends on local energy costs.
  13. You can play with ppt limit to keep temps more under control at the cost of >5% performance loss. I would test what ppt does stock and whack 40-50 off that and play with it from there, or you can download Clocktuner for Ryzen and see what it can do for you, it's pretty decent.
  14. I would suggest this kit with a Ryzen build https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7jH8TW/gskill-flare-x-32-gb-2-x-16-gb-ddr4-3200-memory-f4-3200c14d-32gfx
