  1. I have a friend who currently has a 3600 and a 2060, and he wants to upgrade to a 3070/3080. He currently has a Cooler Master MWE Gold 650W power supply(iirc it's tier B). Will it be enough for a 3070/3080?
  2. that's completely fine what program are you using to monitor the usage and temps?
  3. what are the temperatures like in game
  4. He needs Wi-Fi capability and doesn't want to get an ugly PCIe card for that I'll keep that in mind, thanks!
  5. Alright. That's one issue sorted. I have another question: The Gaming X Trio is really expensive. Would it be wise for me to go for a cheaper model? I've listed them below MSI RTX 3070 GAMING X TRIO 8G - SGD$939 Zotac RTX 3070 Twin Edge 8G - SGD$799 MSI RTX3070 VENTUS 3X OC 8G - SGD$888 MSI RTX 3070 VENTUS 2X 8G - SGD$859 Asus RTX3070 Dual Series 8G - SGD$829
  6. Just FYI, I'll be buying parts in person as it's cheaper, so I can still bargain from the prices shown on PCP. For example that RM650x would probably be like SGD$160 -FE cards aren't in Singapore(iirc) -I'll look at the arctic freezer -I'll try my hand at bargaining, if there is enough leeway I'll get the 3600MHz RAM Do you know if this motherboard supports BIOS-flashing without a CPU installed?
  7. Budget (including currency): $2500 SGD / $1700-1800 USD Country: Singapore Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Planning on playing AAA games at ultra with RTX/DLSS on whenever possible. Some esports too. Planning to play at 1080p 165Hz, and RTX 2000 is still at MSRP here in Singapore, hence the 3070 choice. I have this planned build right now for a friend(assuming I can find stock for a 3070 and 5600x in the first place). I'm a little worried about the BIOS flashing of the B550, since the B550 doesn't support 5600x out of box. Any input
  8. Would broken boot drive result in all fans turning off but the mobo light remaining? That's the one thing that's leading me more towards PSU issue than anything else I've had other PCs with broken boot drives, usually the OS freezes and then boot drive is not detected in BIOS, here we can't even get to the BIOS
  9. You're welcome! Also, did you get that from an old post of mine? Don't remember troubleshooting any Discord-related issue recently
  10. Built my friend a PC a while back - specs listed below. He was using Discord when his screen suddenly went black. After he restarted his computer, it posted fine, but the screen turned black upon seeing the AORUS logo. At the same time, every fan in the system stopped working. GPU fan was already at 0% fan speed before this happened. Motherboard lights were still on. Peripheral lighting(keyboard, mouse etc) all turned on during post, but turned off as well at the same time. I'm leaning towards a PSU failure, have already tried different p
  11. @Skipple @DakotaWebber Someone on reddit suggested I check my network profile, and sure enough it was set to 'Public', which is why the firewall blocked a lot of connections. Changing it to 'Private' fixed everything. Thanks for the help though!
  12. A bunch of friends(trusted friends) usually connect to it, so I think that should be fine. Thanks for the help
  13. Since my minecraft server is running on a separate PC, as long as I don't download anything on it I should be fine right? I usually download server packs etc. on my PC, then transfer them over through a thumbdrive anyway.
  14. Considered that, but in all seriousness, is this a good idea?
  15. If you mean port forwarded(on the router settings website), then yes. I could connect to the server through local and public IP, but only when windows defender firewall was turned off on the server PC. Third party websites show the port as open when the firewall is off. Firewall logs show dropped connections in the same port everytime I try to connect to the server
