  1. Hi everyone, I am looking for a CPU for my next PC build. I am going to replace my i5 4670. My question is: Is a Ryzen 5 2600x (or 3600x) more futureproof than a i5 9600k because of the extra threads? I ask this question because an i7 from the same haswell family as my current CPU, is still a very good CPU for gaming. And as far as my knowledge goes, that is due to the extra threads.

  2. Thank you for your reply! I could get a i7 4770k/4790k for around 150 to 200 euros. However, I don't upgrade my pc very often.

My budget for a graphics card is 350-400 euros (the netherlands) and my budget for MOBO, CPU and RAM is €550. I would like to do the upgrade which gives me the most performance in games first. With the current hardware I have to turn the settings down to low-medium in games s
  4. I will give it a try, thank you for your help!
  5. I did some more research and I think the problem is caused by some bent socket pins. However, don't feel comfortable to repair those myself.
  6. Thank you for the suggestion! I updated the BIOS but it did not fix it unfortunately
  7. Hi everyone! Back in 2013 I bought a pc which was ensembled by a computer company. I want to upgrade it step by step (first GPU) and ran some benchmarks on it. When I opened CPU-z I discovered that my 2 stick of DDR3 ram 1600MHz were running in single channel. The people from the company placed the 2 sticks of ram in dimm 1 and 2 and not the, by msi (MOBO) advised, 2 and 4. I tried to place it in slot 2 and 4 and the pc did not boot. It also did not boot when I placed the sticks in slot 1 and 3. Both my mobo and ram should be capable of running in dual channel. Does an
