    Analog got a reaction from MarvintheParrot in Ram running at wrong speed after cpu and ram upgrade   
    Memory is DDR (Double Data Rate). Subsequently, 1599MHZ x2  = 3200MHz. This means that there is nothing wrong here. You are just expecting to see different numbers, which can't really happen.

    Analog got a reaction from Dedayog in Is it worth it to buy a renovated build ?   
    Don't quite understand the question here? What do you mean by "renovated build" ?
     
    What would be the specs of this renovated build that you are looking for and the price as well. This is what will be dictating whether it is worth it or not.

    Analog got a reaction from lerodemmy in Enabling XMP causes big issue   
    Firstly, is this memory in the QVL for your motherboard? If it isn't then there probably is a reason for this. Secondly, 9th-gen Intel processors don't really have that great of a memory controller, so 4000MHz might not be achievable because of that. The processor itself might get unhappy with those speeds.
     
    There are two things that you can do to make it to work, at least kind of
     
    - loosen the primary timings
    - put in the XMP profile but lower the clock speed to 3600MHz or 3800MHz

    Analog got a reaction from Muhlis in How To Rescue Bitlocker Encrypted Drive With Identifier Code?   
    If you don't know the Bitlocker code, there is no getting the encryption removed. Even if you call up Microsoft they are not going to help you to get the drive decrypted. The only way to "decrypt" the drive is to format / delete existing partition, but you will loose all of the data that is inside.

    Analog got a reaction from KhanRas in Which motherboard should i choose?   
    It's like the same board as the Gigabyte one, but from Asus. This is pretty normal as they are all in the same price point so there can't really be one board that is offering a ton more features for the same price. The only exception to this is usually ASRock, as they tend to offer just a bit more for the same amount of cash. I would still go with the ASRock board.

    Analog got a reaction from KhanRas in Which motherboard should i choose?   
    Well, they are both bare-bones B560 boards. There aren't really any features that one has over the other. You should get the one that fits your build better and you personally like more. The ASRock board has an extra USB, making them a total of 6 six, so maybe go with that. That board has some cooling over the VRM too. I also personally do like the ASRock BIOS implementation more than Gigabyte's, but that's just me.

    Analog got a reaction from Koppi10 in Gigabyte B550M-DS3H and Corsair Vengeance 16 LBX Running at 2133 mhz instead of 3200mhz "HELP"   
    After enabling DOCP in the BIOS do you actually press F10 to save before exiting? If you do save the settings how is the next boot up? Do you get power cycles, like the computer is trying to start but isn't managing to do so?
     
    Ryzen Calculator is more of a guideline and should be taken with a grain of salt. Putting in the correct values to begin with is also kind of a prerequisite as @Stahlmann has pointed out. Keep in mind that if you punch in the settings exactly as they are shown more often than not you motherboard will not be able to train the memory, especially when coming from 2133MHz to 3200MHz. You can just use the primary timing settings and leave everything else in auto. Most motherboards are smart enough to apply settings that will work. Another thing you can do is to try bringing up the clock speed gradually in steps while rebooting the computer and letting it boot up into Windows in the meantime. Meaning, don't jump from 2133MHz to 3200MHz directly. Instead, try to boot up with 2666MHz and maybe 2933MHz as well.

    Analog got a reaction from Stahlmann in What GPU should I use?   
    Depends on what you can find that is available to you. 
     
    If you are buying used, something like a GTX 1070 / GTX 1080 or a 5500XT / 5600XT.  If you are buying new, maybe a RTX 2060 if you can find one. Alternatively, on the lower end maybe a GTX 1650, those are not really sought after for mining so you might be able to get one for about 200-250 Euro.

    Analog got a reaction from minibois in Which PSU plugs for 8+4 pin CPU power?   
    The connectors are keyed, you can't really mess it up. The 6+2 pins and the 4+4 EPS connectors all can be connected to the same spots and are 8 pins. The peripheral and SATA are 6 pins. 24 pin motherboard connector - self explanatory. This is how they are divided:

    Analog got a reaction from birdflyer in PC Upgrade   
    Yes, 200 Euro the motherboard and CPU combo it is quite a good deal. Just keep in mind Ryzen non APUs doesn't have integrated graphics so you will need some kind of a graphics card in order to make thing run. I guess your old GTX 970 will get used for some time still. Another thing to take note of is that prebuilt usually come with non-standard components, like the PSUs. So you will need to make sure your current power supply has enough wattage and also has the necessary connectors.

    Analog got a reaction from Pituce in PC starts but doesn't boot or display anything   
    Nah, I wouldn't worry about it. If you tried overclocking the memory, this is probably what caused the issue in the first place. Some more budget-oriented motherboards aren't that good at memory overclocking so when you do punch in settings sometimes the board can't train the memory, causing the computer not to POST or to get stuck in a boot loop.

    Analog got a reaction from curiousmind34 in Is this a perfect build?   
    No, for two reasons.
     
    Firstly perfection is relative. There are many occasions for which this build will not be useful at all. Therefore we need to know hat exactly you are going to do with it. 
     
    Secondly, good luck running 64GB of memory at 4000MHz with a Ryzen processor

    Analog got a reaction from Ashvin Srinivasan in Will my Ryzen 5 3600 degrade if it runs continuously at 90°C ?   
    Yes, the CPU will thermal throttle. Most probably the computer will also shut itself down due to overheating. What you need to consider is if it is running at 94C under load, the hotspot temperature is probably much higher than this. At these temperatures the processor will degrade a lot sooner than your 3y mark. You will probably start to see instability in a year. The solution thankfully is quite easy - get a better CPU cooler. There are coolers that are very budget oriented and still will be a lot better than the stock Wraith Stealth cooler. Also having just one fan configured as exhaust in a case is certainly not optimal.

    Analog got a reaction from Mandeep Singh in Need feedback for my FIRST EVER build   
    Couple of things need to be addressed imo.
     
    Firstly, I wouldn't go for a 4000MHz memory kit. Ryzen memory controller isn't that strong and there is a good chance that you won't be able to run the memory in a 1:1 ratio with the infinity fabric. My recommendation is go for 3600MHz or 3800MHz. Also do check the QVL of your board for compatibility with the particular kit. Last thing you want is the DOCP not to work as it should and cause BSODs. 
     
    Secondly the NZXT H710 is terrible in terms of airflow. Get another case that has actual openings for the intakes. Refer to the video below for more info:
     
     
    Thirdly, the Arctic Silver 5 is not that good of thermal compound. I would recommend the Arctic MX-4 or Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

    Analog reacted to wNdRkNd in Upgrading HD 558   
    Yes german return policies are good, thomann ontop has some additional satisfaction garantuees. Just ordered the 660s and now i am curious to test these in comparison to my hd558 - we'll see 🙂. I will keep the k712 in mind, but I had some Steelseries Siberia 10 years ago and I felt like the "headmount" (dunno how to phrase it) wasn't very comfortable with my bigger sized head. Anyway thanks for your time invested so far 🙂

    I was recently in the market for new headphones so did some research and tried several different pairs when possible. For me, the best sounding headphone in that price range was the HD 660s. If you can, definitely give those a try. Unfortunately I needed a closed back set so I wasn't able to get it. Tried the DT 770, they came highly recommended by some friends and people on the forum, didn't like them though.

    Analog got a reaction from RegulatorRWF in Ram question   
    Depends. What are the full specs of the memory kits? It is worth to consider the following, unless you have a specific motherboard that allows per channel memory tuning, all RAM sticks will operate with the speed (MHz and timings) of the slowest module installed and also with the highest required voltage. Meaning if you have one stick requiring 1.35V, while the other two need 1.2V, all will operate at 1.35V. None of this is optimal. Also adding more memory capacity doesn't yield better performance unless you are currently running out of system memory .
