  1. Few years!? I cant see myself not playing games for a few years! But im not depressed. At least I dont think i am! I like my job, im a CNC programmer for a luxury furniture factory, currently working on 4 CNC's ... something that i enjoy doing. I have plenty of free time, i work only 8 hours a day with the occasional 9-10 hour shift every now and again. My overall life is fine. Dont think im depressed Idk i play a wide range of games i think. I dont play FPS games like call of duty warzone any more. Any
  2. The title is totally stolen from another post, elsewhere on the web This is more of a personal issue than anything else but at this point im not sure what i should do. Im 30 years old and i've been a pc gamer my entire life. I always thought that gaming will be part of my life for as long as im alive or close to it. Gaming was always my passion. Lately however, for the past year or so in fact, i noticed that my will to play games has diminished. Most noticable is the amount of games that I have started but not finished. I never did this in the p
  3. A bit late with this reply but ive been very busy and wasnt able to do much testing But, with the amount of tests i did, temps were pretty good. Never exceeding 70 degrees on the cpu or gpu. I still need to do some more prolonged tests but so far so good, i might not need a second fan on the cooler :)
  4. First ill run some tests and see how temps are atm without the second fan and depending on how it goes I will look into getting a smaller fan as you suggested. Do they come with the metal bracket to attach it to the cooler? I suspect the one that came with the 140mm fan wont fit on the smaller one ... When i do the tests i will remove the 140mm fan i placed as intake and see if there are any noteworthy changes in temperatures.
  5. Long story short, yesterday i spent almost 4 hours building my new gaming system with the following specs: Ryzen 5800X Noctua NH-D15 air cooler ASUS ROG STRIX X570 F Gaming ASUS TUF 3080 OC 32GB (16x2) 3200Mhz, CL18 Corsair Vengance RGB Pro Corsair HXi Series HX850i, 80+ Platinum, 850W BeQuiet Pure Base 500DX case The issue is with the height of the RAM. I wasnt able to place the second fan on the cooler. At this moment, the cooler has only 1 fan in the middle, the other one i moved to the front of the case. I have
  6. It's working! Idk why I thought it didn't need an update for zen3 Thank you all for your help!
  7. Yeah. It came with an utility that renames it automatically. I'm updating it atm, waiting for the bios flashback led to turn off indicating the update is complete. Here's hoping this will work
  8. Ok, I'll do that. I was under the impression it already had the required bios. Anyway, I'll try updating
  9. Specs Asus ROG STRIX x570 F Gaming AMD ryzen 7 5800x Asus 3080 TUF OC 64GB DDR4 3600mhz ram (2x16 Corsair Vengance RGB Pro) All above parts are brand new After spending 3 hours building the system I was super excited to boot the system only to find that it doesnt work. After I press the power button, all lights light up including ram, all fans spin but I get no monitor signal and the yellow fault led remains on. On Asus boards this means dram. I have tried reseating the ram I have tried booting up with only 1 stick
  10. I ran memtest and it turned out good. I will look into gskill but from what I've seen those are a bit pricey
  11. Bumperino EDIT: I was checking the QVL list earlier and it turns out the RAM i have in that system is listed as QVL so that list is pointless.
  12. System specs: Ryzen 5 3600 Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite RTX 2070 Win 10 Pro Corsair Vengance LPX 3200mhz 8x2 GB RAM (system unstable with xmp enabled using this ram kit) After building this system and enabling XMP profile, the system becomes unstable and often times crashes during gaming sessions. I have no clue as to what ram sticks to get to make this system work properly with XMP enabled. Anyone has this board? What ram do you use?
  13. Well sadly all motherboards you listed are out of stock at my chosen retailers. How about the following boards, these are in stock and a bunch of them are discounted a bit so they fit into the budget: MSI MEG X570 ACE GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Ultra GIGABYTE X570 Aorus PRO ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F GAMING (what the hell is the difference between these 2 anyway?) ASUS PRIME X570-PRO Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ASRock X570 Taichi
  14. Title. I actually managed to oder the cpu 20 minutes ago. I assumed it was a mistake on the retailer website and i called to make sure my order went through and indeed it did. They did say it was a mistake to allow purchases but said they will keep my order and ship the cpu on time (meaning tomorrow). Yay?! Anyway, whats a good x570 board for the price above? Same for ram, im looking for 32GB RAM
