    Boyohan reacted to Stahlmann in Laptop giveaway - User experience SSD - PNY CS900 or Kingston A400   
    From a quick look at the user reviews on Amazon and PCPP i don't see any issues with the PNY CS900.

    Realistically with these specs both will be fine. Just go for the cheaper out of these two.
     
    I don't have any experience with these two in particular, but a low-spec laptop is completely fine with any DRAM-less SSD. I've used the Crucial BX500 for low-spec laptops in the past and they work completely fine. Any SSD is better than a HDD.

    Some people say yes and some say no....
    I have changed/upgraded hardware and kept my old Windows install several times.
    It usually works fine but once or twice I have needed to do a full reinstall of Windows. 
     
    Just do it

     
    Backup your important files before upgrading so you are safe.

    Like @Boyohansaid... JUST DO IT.
    back it important files and try using the same windows on the new one.
    if you're lucky it will adjust itself, if it fails, you can just reinstall.

    Thank you all
    some mixed answers but i'll just try back up the important apps individually to keep any macros for them and do a clean new install on a brand new ssd.
    seems to be the safest and potentially time saving option overall.

    Boyohan reacted to Radium_Angel in Using Intel Core I9-9900K CPU on HP Z370 Tampa 2 Motherboard   
    Does the system *natively* (and this is important) support this new CPU?
    HP has a nasty habit of whitelisting CPUs in their BIOS, and if your new CPU isn't there, it's not gonna work.

    Boyohan got a reaction from NZFlmkr in Please let me know if this is a good deal!   
    The two main components in this PC is the i7 8086K and the 2080 Super.
    So you can compare this PC to buying a completely new PC with similar components:
     
    The i5 10600K can replace 8086K (both are 14nm 6C/12T CPU with good ability for overclocking)
    The 3060 ti have very similar performance to the 2080 Super. 
     
    Using PCPartPicker I have assembled the exact same build to see what it would cost to buy this brand new. 
     
    PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ypqVHz
    CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K 4.1 GHz 6-Core Processor  ($259.99 @ Amazon) 
    CPU Cooler: Silverstone PF240-ARGB 94 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler  ($98.99 @ Amazon) 
    Motherboard: MSI MAG Z490 TOMAHAWK ATX LGA1200 Motherboard  ($194.92 @ Amazon) 
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 CL15 Memory  ($76.98 @ Amazon) 
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 CL15 Memory  ($76.98 @ Amazon) 
    Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($61.69 @ Amazon) 
    Video Card: Asus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8 GB DUAL OC Video Card (Price not available but should be $700-750)
    Case: Deepcool Gamer Storm MACUBE 310 ATX Mid Tower Case  ($73.92 @ Amazon) 
    Power Supply: Silverstone Essential 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply  ($94.99 @ Amazon) 
    Win10 ($20)
     
    Total cost would be roughly 1700 USD if you bought a new PC with the same performance.

    Boyohan reacted to Lurick in Can I put a 6600K in this motherboard?   
    It's not the same socket. 6000 and 7000 series CPUs are 1151v1 and 8000 and 9000 are 1151v2. They are not compatible with each other.
     
     
    *Note: with BIOS mods and other hacks it's technically possible but it's FAR more work than worth it.

    Originally built this PC in 2019 in a Lian Li O11 Dynamic with 360 AIO and an enormous amount of case fans and RGB rainbow lighting.
    I have been wanting to try air-cooling and specifically Noctua for a more silent build.
    When I received my new RTX 3080 Tuf I thought the time was right (I did not overpay any scalpers for my new GPU).

    I just checked OPs list and you are correct about the SSD. 
     
    "DDR4 32GB(4x8GB) 2666mhz Memory"
    "Silverstone 650W Gold Power Supply"
    OP didn't specify the exact RAM and PSU so I choose something similar. 
     
    "Me too" rly ? 
    IMO you did not choose your components as close to the original build as you could. 
     
    Your choice of R5 3600 isn't rly equivalent to 8086K. 
    I choose Intel because that was part of the second hand PC. 
    And if you wanted to match the Z390 board you should have chosen a X470/X570 board. 
    And what made you choose the Apevia PSU ?
     
    From the "PSU Tier list" on this forum: 
    ( low priority units - minor issues or lack of info )
    • Apevia | Prestige
     
    I did not care about price/performance or AMD vs Intel. 
    I built as close to the same PC as I could  (yes I got the SSD wrong).

    Boyohan got a reaction from Sport Driver in AIO vs AIR   
    I recently switched to a new case and cooling
    Old case: Lian Li O11 Dyn with 360 AIO
    New case: BQ 500DX with Noctua NH-D15S
     
    I dropped both temps and noise with air-cooling. 
     
    The standard H510 has terrible airflow because of the closed front panel. 
    Because of the limited airflow in the case I believe the AIO could be slightly better than air-cooling.
     
    I would suggest air-cooling with BQ Dark Rock 4 but with a different case (with mesh front). 
    BQ 500DX
    Corsair 4000D Airflow
    Lian Li LANCOOL II Mesh
    Phanteks P400A
    Fractal Meshify 
    Cooler Master TD500 Mesh

    Boyohan got a reaction from jwwagner25 in Upgrade i5-3570k to i3-8350k (or something else)   
    8350K is a little bit faster than your 3570K but not by a lot and they are both 4C/4T. 
    If you have set your mind for Intel and can't buy 10th gen then keep your 3570K. 
     
    IMO the only 8th/9th gen CPUs that makes sence is the 9900K.
    The 9900K is still great and price has gone down (in my country from 520eur - 380eur for a new CPU) .
    The 8700K and 9700K are also good but it depends on the price and both of these i7 CPU have flaws.
    8700K needs to be delidded or it will be hot regardless of your cooling. 
    9700K lacks hyperthreading. 
     
    For 10th gen
    10400 if you want good price/performance
    10600K if you want the best gaming
    10850K/10900K if you want the best and have a lot of money.

    Boyohan reacted to Kopaka in What's the sweetest spot for gaming the 4 6, 8, 12 cores? Is the 5950x 16 cores futureproof for 5 years from now for gaming?? against 6 and 8 cores   
    For argument let's say in five years most new games can make use of 16 cores. If at the same time amd continues the same single core permance improvements they have in last few generations then the 16 core you buy today will not be much better than an 8 core you buy in four-five years. Just look at the 6 core 5600x which is  pretty much as fast as the last gen 8 core 3800x even in multi core tests. So if you look at it bang for buck wise, buying a 6 core now instead of 16 core will save you enough to buy a new motherboard and ram in 4-5 years that enables you to buy a new cpu with way better single core performance with whatever amount of cores makes sense at the time.

    Boyohan got a reaction from Stahlmann in Where should I pit my radiator?   
    @Stahlmann
    Exactly
     
    To clarify what I said earlier.
    The important thing to remember is that you do not want any air trapped in the cpu block (or pump). 
    (yes BQ Pure Loop is slightly unusual with the pump on the tubes)
    The way to do this is to ensure that the top of the radiator is over both of them. 
     
  23. Agree
    Boyohan reacted to Stahlmann in Where should I pit my radiator?   
    It's simple: No matter where the pump is in your AiO, just don't have it at the highest spot.
  24. Agree
    Boyohan got a reaction from brob in Where should I pit my radiator?   
    Putting it in the front will give you slightly better CPU cooling as it the radiator will have fresh air passing through. 
    Top mounted radiator would possibly give you a few degrees better temps for your GPU as the incomming air will not be passing through a warm radiator.
     
    Both options are fine as long as the top of the radiator is over the pump preventing any air bubbles inside your AIO being trapped in the CPU pump. 
     
    Gamers Nexus did a video where they explained where to place or not to place your radiator.
    Apparently GNs video was too complicated for a lot of ppl so JaysTwoCents did a more simplified explanation on his YT channel.
