    TheGlenlivet reacted to Eigenvektor in M.2 add on card and CPU   
    Quoting from Guru3D
    This means you should have enough room for four x16 slots and one x8 slot, but that would depend on how exactly your motherboard has allocated them.
     
    I'm going to guess at least one of these is used by your GPU. Not sure what the existing M.2s use, but assuming your motherboard still has a free x16 slot, then you should be able to add the Hyper M.2 with 4 times 4x.

    I'd put everything to 100% stock and see if the issue remains.  First things first.

    TheGlenlivet reacted to Applefreak in Boot issue   
    Either go into bios and change the boot order to make the old drive number 1 or switch the cables around. Also make sure the power cable of the old drive hasn't gotten loose.

    Before you pull the CPU to check bent pins, unplug everything but the monitor, RAM and SSD and see if it boots with the RAM in the spots wit was having trouble with before.

    Uh oh! Can you verify that there are no bent pins on the CPU socket?

    TheGlenlivet reacted to DailyProcrastinator in Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ1A vs Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ   
    Personally I would go for the VG27AQ, it has a brighter panel. 
  11. Agree
    TheGlenlivet got a reaction from DailyProcrastinator in Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ1A vs Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ   
    the VG27AQ1A is slightly faster, the VG27AQ has a better, brighter panel with HDR features.
    I would get the regular.  I doubt you'd noticed the difference in speed from 165hz to 170hz.
     
    EDIT - Digging a little deeper it looks like they are bother HDR 10, but the VG27AQ is brighter at 350cd/㎡ vs 250 cd/㎡ for the 1A

    You can buy replacement fans for that card.

    I've ran 3600x with both and the 212 is more silent, not much difference in temp. A little but not much.

    TheGlenlivet got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Threadripper? Threadripper PRO? Threadripper Gen4? Future options?   
    You could build an AM4 system that will be much more powerful, inexpensive and easy to use than what you are used too.
    I would seriously consider the use case before jumping into Threadripper.

    Well, it seems AMD did infact leapfrog Intel's current offerings...
     
    I have long said they would near them but not pass them, and I am wrong.  It's fantastic to see and I am glad I am.
     
    Just acknowledging my bad call and applauding AMD.

    Assuming the trashcan ran it fine then I'd say a 5900x or 5950x should be more than plenty.

    The differences between the 2 chips is just clockspeed and the fact that one is a oem non consumer part and the other is a consumer part that is the better of the 2 (the 3970x).
    Ecc for your case is pointless.
     
    What were the specs of the mac trashcan? The 16core 5950x might be a really good choice as most software does not scale that well beyond a set amount of cores and the fact the 5950x has better single core performance.

    This page shows the CPU support for the BIOS version.
    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this board has a flashable bios without a CPU installed.
    You'll need to check the bios version to be 100% sure.

    It would look something like this.  There are a LOT of parts out there and new ones coming out before the holiday season.  You could buy this right now.  It's a decent mid level upgrade to his system.  Everyone here could offer a list with different parts they would prefer, but this is a start.
    I added a PSU because I know prebuild systems come with sketchy ones sometimes.

    Yeah it could.
    You mentioned he has an SSD already, so you might not need the SSD I included.
     
    I use a 1440P ultrawide myself, so I am not the authority on 4K monitors, but I am sure there is someone on the forums that can point you in the right direction.
     
    Also, all of these parts would need to be installed by him, or you  at this price.  It's pretty easy to do, just making sure you know this build keeps his old case, fans and any other parts not listed.

    I went with this. Keeps his GPU. Uses a normal SSD instead of m.2 to cut cost back a little bit and a slightly newer Mobo. Like Glenivet said, everyone will have their own opinions on this. Stuff can be cherry picked as needed. The HDD can be ported over, but you'd want OS on the SSD. So I'd back up what's on the HDD minus the OS, format it. Put windows on new SSD and then what ever files he doesn't want the speed for on the HDD or use it as an over flow.

    The laptop should be able too boot to BIOS without any drives installed and that should allow you to configure that, but the SSD will probably work anyway.
