  1. I was wondering when B450 boards would get support for the new 5000 Series, specifically the AMD R5 5600X
  2. Budget (including currency): $300 Country: United States Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I already have a system but an rebuilding it and am reusing some parts I’ve already replaced and some cheap new ones for a system for my mother (not for games, just needs it for Microsoft Office, Browsing the web, and Zoom). I already have the rest of the parts I’
  3. I've run Norton Internet Security (as I get it from my ISP), but have since gotten rid of it because of usage, and now I've tried using Malware Bytes and Windows Defender. I haven't so far with this PC ever gotten any malware. The weird thing is with CPU/GPU/Memory: I literally never hit 100% in game on either CPU or GPU but get awful performance. Because one or the either should always be a bottleneck and I'd say the CPU would be but at max it hits 80% combined and GPU 50% combined in something like Warzone (higher in other games). Games that do run well actually 99% my GPU.
  4. My PC consists of a Ryzen 5 2600X (I've tried Auto/PBO/Manual from 4.1GHz to 4.25GHz), Nvidia 2060 (non-S) (max of +115core +500mem), 32GB 4x8 2993MHz OC to 3200MHz (tightened as much as possible in bios), 500GB Samsung Evo SSD, 1TB WD Blue HDD, and uh some WD laptop drive (I was running out of storage), 650W 80Plus Gold EVGA PSU, and 6 fans (1x 120MM Corsair LL, 3x 140MM Corsair LL, 2x 120MM Corsair ML) on a Corsair H100i RGB Platinum. With my same specs, even worse from tons of friends and online benchmarks I've seen (including my own previous performance in games), I should be able
  5. I refuse to use Chrome and am 10x happier after I switched to Firefox after the Quantum update back in 2017. But, some sites cause major issues for me and I don't know if it's Firefox or my Hardware. I have a R5 2600X (Which I'm upgrading as it bottlenecks hard but unrelated to browser tasks) and a RTX 2060. I use Firefox with Hardware Acceleration off but I've had it even with it on. Basically besides Google sites which I've heard from everyone just works not as well as on Chrome, sites like Reddit slow down or "chugs" heavily on Firefox such as the responsiveness and animations but literally
  6. I already have 2 monitor arms, one meant for two monitors and another one for 1 monitor but much taller. I ended up swapping them around so I have 1 in the middle and two on top. I was wondering if there was a way to buy or anywhere to buy just the bracket and like the arm because I don’t wanna drop $30-$40 and also have another like pole and everything since I won’t use it. If this does exist I’d prefer it through Amazon US if anyone has any recommendations.
  7. From videos I’ve watched: people mention undervolting to reduce temperatures “drastically” and improve performance? Are there any true gains and how would I undervolt if so
  8. I posted a couple days ago asking about affordable NVMe M.2 drives that are PCIe Gen 4 and was told that that difference in speed from PCIe Gen 3 vs 4 isn't as noticeable atm besides benchmarks and from videos online I see the same thing where Gen 4 isn't that noticeable to most users so was wondering whether TLC or QLC drives are faster as I've heard those terms throw around a bit and don't understand the difference.
  9. I've been struggling with storage recently as I have a 500GB SSD OS drive that became a lot less useable with me having a lot of programs and also installing 2-3 games for faster boot times as I launch them frequently. I also have a secondary 1TB HDD for additional games and also for recording/taking ShadowPlay clips which causes me to have almost no storage more often than not. I am planning to rebuild my PC and to add an additional 2-3TB of storage but that will be a couple months from now. So I was wondering whether the built-in option for compressing drives is safe as I've literally never
  10. I currently have a couple RGB peripherals and internals that I'd like to automatically turn off when my computer enters sleep mode as I can't turn my PC off because I run a Discord bot and game servers off of it and need to leave it on (until I build a seperate PC specifically for it) is there a way to automatically shut off peripherals RGB and interals: HyperX Alloy Origins Core TKL (uses HyperX Engenuitity) Glorious Model O (uses Glorious Model O Software) A bunch of Corsair smart RGB devices (uses Corsair iCUE)
  11. Ah, alright then. Thank you. I just wanted to get one so I don't need to replace my boot drive for the longest time but if that's true I'll just wait til things like the new direct storage stuff makes a proper impact in games load times and performance. I'll get a small PCIe Gen 3 SSD for now as a boot drive and use it for my main programs.
  12. I'm looking for a NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD with anywhere from 250GB-500GB as just a boot or primary program and game drive. I already have SATA3 I think it is 500GB SSD which I'm transferring to my next PC and probably another going to get another SSD as 500GB is also little (current primary drive) and a 1TB HDD (current secondary drive).
  13. I'm building my mom a new PC with parts from my current PC and extra parts (old air cooler, fans, etc, etc) since I'm rebuilding my PC and she doesn't need anything super powerful but I currently have a 2600X and no integrated graphics so was wondering if maybe something like a 1050 or even older would be fine, but not an eye sore since the case I'm giving her is a tempered glass side panel. (she won't be using this PC for a lot of gaming, just occasionally a bit of games but mostly for work).
  14. In November I'm rebuilding my PC (even though I just built it last summer) because I'm getting bottlenecked by my 2600X because of the programs I use and my mother needs a PC so I'm going to be using a majority of my parts (as I literally replaced my already new air cooler for an AIO and other extra parts that I have laying around) and I can't pick between the Corsair 4000D Airflow ($79.99) and Corsair 220T ($109.99) as I personally like the design of the 220T but I could save about $30 and I was wondering if I would have a noticeable difference in airflow/temps as I'm currently running on a N
