    Jasun reacted to frokes in Powerful enough system?   
    stay away from A-series motherboards, the money you save on them is not worth the decrease in component quality. Any B450 should be fine as you won't need the features of b550 for the r5 3600, if you plan on upgrading to 5000-series cpu getting a x470 board might be worth it.
     
    I noticed that your PSU isn't on the PSU-tier list so you might want to have a look at that too. (

    Jasun got a reaction from CopiWasTaken in Need help with buying my first gaming laptop   
    We would need a budget if you want the most performance for your buck. The laptop you have chosen will perform very well in Warzone but in my opinion, I would never get that laptop because of how 'gamery' it looks with all those red accents. If you want something more subtle (but will run hotter), you can get the MSI GS65 or you can spend more money and go for the MSI GS66.

    Jasun reacted to Radium_Angel in Should I upgrade or buy new ?   
    That's a laptop, highly unlikely you'll be able to upgrade anything other than the RAM (maybe)

    Jasun reacted to Brok3n But who cares? in new computer   
    Your priorities are in the wrong place. 200hz monitor with a 1660s, a 3600, that is also 2560x1080p? no. Don't do that. RGB mousepad? Couldn't you spend the money in a better way? Plus this is a new setup not computer. The RAM and Motherboard are kind of... Shady at best. This won't run like How you are expecting. a 240mm aio with a 3600? Please. Reconsider what you're spending your money on, this is not something you should buy

    Jasun reacted to MartinKweh in non oem cooler not performing good   
    Have you tried remounting the cooler?
    Dis you remove the sticker at the bottom of the mounting of the cooler?
    Did you add enough thermal paste?
    Is the mounting pressure good enough?

    Jasun got a reaction from Thready in Does desktop resolution affect battery much for non GPU things?   
    You shouldn't really be worried about your desktop resolution ruining your battery life because the resolution only contributes to how many pixels your GPU has to render and even with an iGPU, that should be no problem. I would look into any specific background tasks that may be running and optimizing windows for battery. 
    General Windows tips for longer battery: 
    - turn on power saving mode (battery icon, drag all the way to left side)
    - lower brightness if possible
    - close all unneeded background programs (taskbar -> up arrow -> right click -> quit/close)
    - turn off any peripherals or keyboard lighting if applicable
    - undervolting (only if you know what you're doing, dave2d has a nice video on how to lower thermals on a laptop [it also reduces battery usage to a certain extent])
    - etc. (you can always find articles/videos online that tell you how to reduce general battery usage on a laptop)

    Jasun reacted to Himommies in Which case ?   
    We are not the ones to tell you which case you should buy. Most cases nowadays at that price range are pretty good in terms of functionality, so just go out and buy something you think looks good

    but honestly though, Minecraft has been given new life over the past year due to the general population playing it, growing up ?
     
    (ik it's not free but if you've spent that much money on games, you most definitely have minecraft--give it another shot)

    Jasun reacted to clustr1 in First build complete!   
    Thanks!  It is prominently displayed in my apartment and my wife approves of these colors, so these colors it will remain.  Although she has no idea what she is looking at and thinks I am crazy.

    Jasun got a reaction from Speed Weed in Is it okay to run 2 software temp monitoring software at the same time?   
    There shouldn't be any conflict. Maybe a minuscule CPU degradation due to it scanning the temperatures through two different programs instead of one but with CPUs nowadays, that should not be an issue at all.

    Jasun got a reaction from michelrose in Best affordable gaming laptop   
    ~800 USD can get you a laptop with a GTX 1050Ti and an i5 7th gen/i7. It isn't really hard to find those around Amazon but their quality cannot be compared to higher end ones that are more expensive because of their extra features, etc. If that's what you call budget, then go ahead and browse Amazon to find one of these but other than that, there are quite a bit of videos that Linus has done over these laptops (and other tech YouTubers) so I would just hop onto YouTube and find videos that meet your criteria and then judge  based on the videos' review. I know this sounds like shitty advice on what laptop to get but I would think that looking at an actual video with images will spark your interest, rather than people telling you what to buy, and of course, you can look at other suggestions posted here and search them up on YouTube to see if you actually like them.

    An old but reliable cooler would be the Hyper 212 EVO from Cooler Master. You can find these on Amazon for ~30 bucks

    On the official intel site, the temperature for that specific cpu should not exceed 72 C for normal usage... What cooler are you using?
     
    Edit: Woops, stock cooling... Maybe you should invest in a better cooler?
