  1. All I am doing right now, is sitting here on the forms and a few apps open for work.
  2. Yeah temps are normally around 60, when I have looked in the past. I was just doing that. I'm using the Noctua NH-U12S cooler.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I was watching a YouTube video... this is my first AMD build for some time, did it back in May.... What should the temps be? The Screen grab is from corsair iCUE
  4. I thought I would add a link to Microsoft about Direct Storage coming to Windows 10 :https://devblogs.microsoft.com/directx/directstorage-is-coming-to-pc/
  5. I have removed the heatsink/air cooler and it look ok to me, may be a little flat in the middle so I put a touch more thermal paste on (see images). In the BIOS CPU reports 44 degrees, in windows from Commander Pro it's reporting anything from 50 - 60, with normal apps open. I'm not into OC so happy to leave at the defaults, and the vCPU is set to 1.42v... I'm beginning to thing this is the normal temp range for the this CPU others online are saying its to high and some are saying it's fine. 20200519_140323050_iOS.heic 20200519_140326454_iOS.heic 20200519_140529099_iOS.hei
  6. I have just build a PC with a 3700X , are these temps high? This is my second AMD in 20 years, have no feel for whats right.. I'm using the Cosair SPEC-06 Case, I have two Corsair 140 mm, pulling air in, and one at the back pulling air out and I'm using a Noctua NH-U12S air cooler. Any advice would be appreciated... Edge (new) was open, teams running, GoXLR, and StreamDeck running in the back ground.
  7. Any thoughts on this spec? (Storage removed as I have a 1 TB SSD already) PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor (£383.41 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler (£79.99 @ CCL Computers) Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard (£189.99 @ CCL Computers) Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (£156.97 @ Amazon UK) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB OC Video Card (£219.98 @ Technextday) Case: NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case (£80.33 @ Aria PC) Power Sup
  8. Dang, this is really hard. ok. So if I got a 3950x do you think there will be an upgrade path to the 4000 once released ? I have a bit of an issues as it’s my boys birthday in the next couple of weeks - eek
  9. This may be a dump question but is it worth getting a AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Processor which will upgrading to a different Threadripper CPU at a later date?
  10. Thanks for spending the time doing that @boggy77, you picked pretty much the same as I did, I was looking at the Ryzen 5 3600x. I have a 512GB Spare Samsung SSD, which can go into my current build and past that along to my son and my existing 1TB can go into the new build saving a bit of cash, which I would put towards something else maybe... so many options.
  11. That's what I was thinking. Yes £1k, I use it to code and stream coding on twitch, notice that sometimes, with OBS, VS Code open, it can struggle sometimes... just want to see what you guys thought, I built my current PC about 18months ago before streaming, been out of the PC build game really and not up to speed with AMD, etc, been watching LTT for the last couple of years to get back into it. So now of course I'm thinking AMD is the way to go, although I'm a little wary as I want this to last at least 3 years.
  12. I have a Core i5 8400 with a 1060 3GB, 16GB Ram. Do I upgrade the processor for an i7/i9 and keep it or do I go for a new build. Budget is around 1k. I'm thinking for giving this PC to my son, he plays fornite, he's currently playing on a 7 year old PC. Use the money to build a new PC, either for him or me, if that makes sense. What's the best AMD/GFX for the budget. I stream on twitch but not games, coding. Any help/advice/thoughts would be appreciated and thanks for you time.
  13. Looking for a GTX 1050, which has 3 ideally 4 x DisplayPorts ? Does such a thing exist ? thanks
