  1. Hi, I am looking to buy a monitor case (something like Gator Cases Small Padded LCD Transport Bag) along with a monitor (21" to 24") which would fit in the case. Based on what I am seeing, for the most part, the bag is made to fit the monitor without the stand, although it might fit if I can find a monitor with a compact (minimalist) stand. I might be able to get away with this setup IF the stand can be packed flat or if I can get a third party stand which packs flat that would mount on a VESA. Does anyone know of any monitor that comes with a flat or minimalist stand
  2. 2 things to avoid last 2 days of troubleshooting so far: 1. make sure the ram is compatible with Ryzen / mobo (memory supported list is your friend, just not your wallet). 2. Make a fresh Windows 10 USB boot even if the version you get comes with a DVD or other media, you want the latest windows 10 drivers for initial install of a 3900x.
  3. I ran into an issue with the RAM with my new build. I'd check to make sure either other people had no issue with 32GB Crucial Ballistix Sport LT Gray (2x16GB 3200MHz CL16) or make sure the Part No. is on the QVL list of the manufacturer mobo otherwise you might be walking into a headache. Also, create a new windows 10 installer on USB before the build, don't use an old version, it was one of my main cause for blue screen of death. I would agree with brob, DDR4-3600 makes a small difference, so for the price difference it might be worth it in my opinion, but it depends if you
  4. If you click on the links, it brings you to pc parts picker USA. So it's USD. The site does allow you to select CND currency at top, but the links provided won't work. You'd have to reselect them in the website build option. Only concern on the list is the power supply, might be questionable quality (but since your on a budget you get what you pay for). Radeaon RX 5700 XT are good value, but need some tweeking for driver which should occur in the next couple of months (you should always expect this for new release GPU). The blower on it is bad, if you can wait 1 month for the thir
  5. 3700x only needs 65W unless you are overclocking (to around 3800x speeds). So power wise, it's the same. At this point, I would try the 3700x without overclock on your setup before worrying about OC with different board. Just update your BIOS first. You might be surprised with the results. You can plan to change the mobo later if you are not satisfied. B550 are not expected until sometime in December or early next year unless they get delayed. If your budget allows for a x570 and you do not need PCI-e 4.0 for M.2 or storage (no GPU really need PCI-e 4.0 right now)
  6. Solved. Make sure not to install the drivers for the RAID... it causes Windows 10 to stop working for some reason. Create a new windows 10 installer before starting, make a HUGE difference, no longer crash... CPU running without doing any overclocking on my part at 4.275 on all cores, boost to 4.300 when needed, cannot complain. My photos which used to take about 50 seconds to compile after editing is taking 15 seconds. Going from 4 cores to 12 cores, shaved more than 3 times the time to encode. It even beats my laptop which took 26 seconds to encode.
  7. Received the RAM from Amazon... thank you Amazon for Saturday delivery! The bios is holding the XMP setting so the RAM was not acceptable for this motherboard even if it was B-die. Updated the bios from F5e to F5g while I was at it, had to re-activate the XMP, it holds and detects it. 1 Problem solved. Windows is still crashing, at this point I should not be surprised since it was installed with bad(?) RAM, this could also indicate a bad or an issue with the M.2(?). Currently creating a new Windows 10 installer (prior was dated from Oct 2017) so I am giving myself more chances. I
  8. I had the initial F3 bios which I have no knowledge of the AGESA version. The F5e has ??? not sure, they now have F5g (updated today) which is AGESA Gah, I should have kept the RAM for the weekend to see if the NEW bios would fix the issue. And yes, the RAM was Samsung B-die, hence why I think I got bad RAM, but it could also be a bad mobo.
  9. Setup: Gigabyte x570 Master Ryzen 9 3900x 2x16GB 3200mHz Cl14 G.Skillz Ripjaw V RAM (F4-3200C14D-32GVK) M.2 Corsaire MP510 PSU 750w EVGA P2 Noctual NH-D15 SE-AMD Motherboard Bios: Original Bios is version F3 (you cannot even find it on Gigabyte website). Issue occurred so I updated the bios to F5e. Issue still occurred. Issue: The Motherboard will not accept the XMP setting, it will reset the bios and run the RAM at 2133mHz. Even when it runs it at 2133mHz, the computer cycles a couple of time before loading into Windows 10, t
  10. Cannot answer your question, however be careful with which RAM you use. I got an issue with 3200nmhz cl14 b-die ram with my x570 master. Not sure if it's the Kobo or Ram. I am sending the ram back and ordered Kobo approved to determine. Good luck
