    Mateyyy reacted to minibois in Is a PSU with 80+ white certificate safe?   
    1. the 80+ rating is not an indication of quality. There are good and bad PSU's in the 80+ White, Bronze, etc. ranges. It's most important to pick out a good quality unit
    2. it of course always depends on the PC you're making. Specifically, the CPU and GPU you'll be using.
     
    There is no simple "yes/no"  answer to this question, as we need to know the circumstances too.

    Mateyyy reacted to Spotty in CAN THIS PSU POWER MY MSI GAMING X 5600XT USING MOLEX TO 8PIN ADAPTER "SAFELY"?   
    No. Buy a new power supply. If the PSU doesn't have PCIe cables it's clear that it was never designed for powering high end, high power consuming graphics cards. Adapters are just a fire hazard.
    Considering that PSU is listed for sale on online stores in UAE for 33AED ($8.99 USD) I would be throwing it in the bin immediately.

    Mateyyy got a reaction from boggy77 in Insanely high IDLE CPU temps (Ryzen 5 3600)   
    Sounds like a bad mount. Try remounting the CPU cooler, and also removing the thermal paste that's on there and applying some fresh one, if you've got any on hand.
     
    Also, try being extra careful when you're taking the cooler off. Because of the AM4 socket and CPUs, often times the especially sticky thermal paste will glue the CPU to the cooler and pull it right out of the socket (which isn't ideal, to say the least).
    A good idea would be removing the cooler right after shutting down the system (so the paste is still warm), and also pull the cooler off with a twisting motion, as opposed to just pulling it straight up.

    Mateyyy reacted to Eigenvektor in GPU needs 2x8pin but i only have 1 8pin and 1 6pin   
    It should, but it also means you're potentially drawing more power from that 6-pin than it is rated for. A good power supply should be able to provide enough power, but you're still operating outside its specs. So ideally you'd get a better power supply that does have 2x 8-pin.
     
    A 6-pin is rated for 75 watt, while an 8-pin is rated for 150w, so you'd be drawing up to double the rated power from the 6-pin, depending on how power hungry the GPU is.

    I love cold weather and I want more of it. I want more rain too. I want wet, cold weather here in California, way more than we usually get. Sunshine and warm temperatures this time of year puts me down. 😞 Anyone complaining about the rain where they live can send some rain my way. 🙂

    The car I currently own is a 2007 Audi S6 Avant (5.2 V10 FSI 6-spd auto) and I just now realize I don't have a decent picture of it. This goes to show how much I care about it... Still, my favorite car I have ever owned is a 1994 BMW 730i (3.0L V8 5-spd auto). Picture below. Still makes me sad when I think about the day I sold it. One day I would very much like to get another one of these. This time with the V12.

    Mateyyy reacted to FakeKGB in 3600mhz CL18 or 3200mhz CL16?   
    Neither.
    Get 3200 CL14 or 3600 CL18, 3200CL16/3600CL18 isn't very good for Ryzen.
    Ryzen likes fast RAM since it uses it for core-to-core communication, and going from 2133 to 3200 can provide a 15-20% difference.

    They are both the same in terms of latency. If they are the same price then go with the 3600.

    Mateyyy got a reaction from Moonzy in 2 sets of same memory sticks - p95 errors   
    The fact that you've gone from a single-rank to a dual-rank memory configuration will make up for the slight drop in frequency.
    If anything, you could also try tightening the timings.

    Mateyyy got a reaction from Moonzy in 2 sets of same memory sticks - p95 errors   
    Ryzen 5000 CPUs use the same memory controller as 3000.
     
    Your best bet is lowering the memory frequency and/or bumping up your SoC voltage slightly.
