  1. There is plenty of passive cooling on the rog strix B550-F, think its A tier, on the forum tier list. Also got 2 140mm intakes, 3 120mm exhaust, so there should be plenty of fresh air in my Phanteks P400A. Okay, if the consensus is that there is a bug, im happy with that. Built the system last night, and had a moment of panic when I checked the temps.
  2. Checked mobo user guide and did a quick search but cant seem to find it, guessing its a VRM. Found a similar post: https://linustechtips.com/topic/1223088-high-temperature-reading-on-asus-rog-b550-and-3800x/
  3. HWinfo64 reads 2 temps as high, while HWmonitor just got the one temp peaking at 91C. Finished downloading now, so its idle
  4. Just got my first build up and running, and while installing Cyberpunk 2077 i noticed on HWmonitor that one of my temps was high (TMPIN4, averaging 88C). The only closest temp is TMPIN8 at 68C, but CPU, GPU and rest of mobo is fine. Is there something i should check on the mobo, and at what temps should i be worried?
  5. So i just got most of my parts for my first PC build. When i first ordered the parts i ordered a RTX 2060, but on the release of RTX 3060 Ti, i ordered it as well, with plans to return the 2060. Now i'm guessing that a 550W PSU is not enough to power my build, with the RTX 3060 Ti. And since my brother has a spare unopened 550W PSU i can have for free, i was wondering if a dual PSU setup is possible, or if i should just buy a larger PSU. And if so, how many watts should i get? Parts i ordered - the RTX 2060: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Proce
  6. Thanks, got any advice where i should look for updates on those? LTT forum news or somewhere else?
  7. That was fast, thanks man! I'we been spent many hours researching if I should go for the RX 5600, GTX 1660 Super, GTX 1660-Ti or the RTX 2060. But since I'm not in a rush I was thinking that i should await the RTX 3000-series release and see if the price of any of the GPUs mentioned drops. Either that or I'm possibly waiting for black Friday/ cyber Monday. Since you are nice enough to look at my build i gotta ask. The only reason I mentioned that PSU (Corsair CX550M 80+ bronze) is because a friend gave it to me. Its a couple of years old (he cant remember if he bought it in 2015 or 2
  8. The RAM is a 3200MHz CL16 kit. I was originally thinking a budget of $900, as for workload i will mostly use the desktop for gaming, not necessary the latest AAA games (thou i cant wait for Cyberpunk 2077) but i want to futureproof my system. Thanks Im currently leaning against B550 as i'm guessing I would be a fool to not get PCIE 4.0 right before RTX 3000- and RX 5300- series is released.
  9. Hey i am putting together my first AMD Ryzen desktop with the current specs: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060 Motherboard: Either a MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX or a B550 PSU: Corsair CX550M Case: undecided RAM: Corsair Vengance DDR4 3200MHz 2x8GB Storage: Undicided on which M.2 SSD for boot, and got a WB Red 2TB 3.5" Is there any obvious bottlenecks present? And what are the big advantages of getting av B550 Motherboard instead of B450? Even tho the motherboard supports upto 4000MHz RAM, is it worth getting, or are the 3200MHz still the
