    The first mistake you made was reading an Amazon review.  People are stupid as hell. 

    It’s a pre built desktop that’s total overkill for what you want to do. You’ll be fine quit worrying about it.

    If you want to play competitive buy a real monitor. I’m not trying to sound like a jerk but if you only have a 60 Hz one now the input lag is probably bad on it to

    Swap that I3 for a i5 10400, they are cheaper than what you listed on amazon all the time

    Gohardgrandpa got a reaction from Ben17 in Ryzen 5 3600 High Idle Temp and Gaming   
    At launch I posted about this and someone didn’t believe me here. The temps are all over the damn place and they aren’t low.   
     
    They said if you have more then one thing monitoring temps it will keep the cpu from going idle. So if you have ICue open and ryzen master or hwinfo somehow the cpu thinks it under load and sends more voltage and boosts speed and temps. 
     
    The box cooler that comes with the 3600 is awful. Idk about the other cpu stock coolers but my 3600 cooler was garbage, I even put new thermal paste and put the cooler back on thinking the stock paste was junk. 
     
    I saw someone say something about airflow and ambient temps being a factor. My house is at 70F and in a fractal design focus g case with 5 Corsair ml120 fans and a strix 3 fan rtx 2060 it was still getting hot so you can’t blame airflow or ambient temp in my situation. I had $160 worth of fans in a mesh front panel case with a strix card. 
     
    Early adopter woes I suppose. Either way I’m more then happy with the performance increase I got going from 1st gen to 3rd gen ryzen. With the h100i I rarely ever see it go above 60c while gaming for hours, with the stock cooler it was in the 80’s and throttling my speed to 4ghz sometimes.
     
    Sure it sucks having to use a different cooler but it is what it is, I’m dealing with it and happy with the performance I’m getting after swapping coolers.

    Gohardgrandpa got a reaction from kucharczykt in Are used cpus OK   
    I'd buy a used intel CPU without a worry, AMD on the other hand I would worry about the packaging being good enough, pins on the cpu is a horrible idea

    Benchmarks don't apply to you. Also Ultra settings are for screenshots and High settings are for playing.
     
    For E sports games, not AAA games.

    IDK how I go this thread mixed up with someone else's that's my fault. It has to be the mount on the cooler, I've done it before a long time ago

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to jwwagner25 in What’s Currently The Fastest For Gaming?   
    I don't mean to be rude but I'm just curious, have you spent *any* time searching this question on your own? There are like ten million videos on youtube and many many written reviews that cover every possible performance metric a person could ever want to know for the processors in question. 
     
    Have you looked at the cinebench single/multithread charts for the 10900k/5900/5950? how about game performance charts? productivity? That should tell you, objectively, what processors are faster for a particular workload. Only you know how you use your PC and what you hope to do with it.

    I know I'm a little late to the party here, I use a evga clc 360mm aio and it's been great. Kept a overclocked 10700k @ 5.2ghz under 70c while gaming no problem. I'm using it on a i5 10400 now and it stays under 50c. I got it from evga when they had a b stock sale for $69, it was brand new when I got it. None of the screw holes have been touched and had all the plastic on it still.

    I don't know if the switches and keycaps will come already installed in the keyboard ... If they do you are missing the fun of doing it yourself ... but to be able to play with it that way you can just order another kind of switches and swap them when they arrives just for the fun of it.

    Gohardgrandpa reacted to Random_Person1234 in Is the 6800XT worth the extra $70?   
    Could you explain how you came to that conclusion? I came out with the opposite conclusion, that the 3070 was more worth it due to the 6800 not having that much of a gain in pure performance plus the 6800 having worse rt and less features.

    I’ve been after a 3080 myself and have been striking out hard. I got the email from evga saying I could buy a card and I thought it was gonna be a 3080. I open the link and saw the ftw3 3070 and said F it, I’ll buy it. 
    Im glad I was even able to get a card. I will say using dlss on Cold War I saw a big difference in my fps, big enough that it made me appreciate having that feature

    Honestly man, I wouldn’t stress about this. At least you were able to get a 3070. I’ve had way better luck with nvidia than amd, that’s why I went with nvidia. Sure the card is slower than the 6800 but it’s not a huge difference from what I’ve seen.
