    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from EmilianoZeta in PC reboots under load - GPU or PSU?   
    In this case I would first swap the PSU and run a few stress tests with it.

    These copy cats going after iPhone design is getting ridiculous. Are we seriously living in a day and age where companies have zero personality left?

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Fasauceome in Need help pricing my setup for selling.   
    As a matter of fact, she is a gamer. We met in a game. But as I said, my gaming laptop handles modern games at 1080p 60FPS without any issues, which is all we need. I just don't have time for going full hardcore mode on a high end gaming setup.

    @Cvet76 Thanks for your reply. I'm a bit sleepy atm, hence my spelling mistakes. Also, English isn't my native language.
     
    My reason for selling this setup is a happy one - I'm getting married. Yes PCMasterrace, I'm leave you because I've found someone special. Regular LTT Forum visitors have probably noticed my absence since late 2019. 
     
    I don't need the money "RIGHT NOW!". I simply don't need my rig anymore because I have no time for gaming and other things that require huge amount of PC power. I'm happy with my Helios 300 laptop.I would like to sell it before next gen GPUs and CPU come out and prices drop drastically.
     
    I will follow your and @Fasauceome advice for pricing and cleaning (Not that my rig was ever extremely dirty). 
     
    Thanks for help.

    Depends which B450 board you have. Decent B450 boards will handle it without any issues. Cheaper B450 will struggle to run this CPU.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from XandersWithS in My gaming performance goes different from what i expected   
    R5 2600 isn't particularly good for games that require strong single-core performance or high refresh rate gaming in general.
     
    Most MMORPGs in my experience require super high single core performance. Black Desert, GW2, Aion and even WoW. And since R5 2600 doesn't have that, it won't run those games smoothly. If you want good performance, you will need 3600 with high overclock applied to it.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Nicnac in Do I have to take apart my case fans to paint them?   
    I wouldn;t recommend painting them. It will make the fans unbalanced and increase noise and wear on the bearings all leading to earlier failure of the fan.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to PartyOf1WOOHOO in New Build in Ireland   
    You have made my mind up. I am not into overclocking and won't be for the foreseeable future, the research I had done had me leaning to the Gigabyte. I think you may also be right about the RGB, it does a look a little complicated as well as expensive. I will wait for a while and just install some Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 for now. Also agree on the SSD's.
     
    Thank you for the advice & the feedback, really appreciate it!

    1: It depends. Gigabyte makes higher quality X570 boards compared to Asus. But Asus BIOS is much better to work with if you're into high end overclocking.
     
    2: @Noah0302 is totally right, high quality RGB fans are very expensive. I would also add installation difficulty. You will need dedicated controllers + Software to control all of it. So if you're willing to spend 200+ euros on a set of RGB fans, be prepared to spend a decent amount of time connecting a metric ton of wires.  Going with cheap RGB fans isn't really an option because you need a silent system.
     
    3: Yes, you've selected an overkill. You can easily get away with 550W PSU in a single GPU system. But then again, I'm also running 750W EVGA PSU only because I got a mad deal on it.
     
    4: I would get SSDs only. Mechanical drives will create noise which you obviously don't need in your recordings.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from dreamcast4599 in what load line level do i use for overclock   
    You usually want to set it in the middle. With 5 levels, I wouldn't go above 3 with that voltage because there is a chance that your vcore could spike way over 1.4 and kill your chip.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from ItsMeRachata in Is Cities: Skylines CPU or GPU intense   
    Normally Skylines destroys any type of CPU you throw at it. But since your setup is so dated, it can't utilize much of the CPU whet GPU can barely keep up.
