    Manufacturers were already making 5400RPM HDD in 2005, 4200RPM like bruh, I know diesel engines that redline higher

    BigRom got a reaction from Arika S in Why can we not have any sort of standard for RGB?   
    All this RGB bs is why I've completely given up on the aesthetics part of the build, as long as it boots up and performs up to my expectations I could care less whether it lights up or what colour is it lighting up
     
    Its just so much faff and nonsense, proprietary connectors, crap software, sometimes needing an entire controller that the case doesn't come with not to mention the extra unnecessary work for cable management. But I guess some people enjoy being tortured trying to get their RGB working, so power to them I suppose.

    BigRom got a reaction from dizmo in What are some lesser known hardware manufacturers that have good quality items?   
    They do make stuff that isn't unicorn vomit, the Ripjaws/Flare & Sniper X/Fortis were non-RGB RAM
    Even the original Trident Z were pretty minimalist looking, until they went crazy with the Trident Z RGB/Royal/Neo

    Check your front panel leads, does it match up to what the motherboard says (+ in +, - in -) and is it plugged correctly into HDD LED

    BigRom got a reaction from Ashley MLP Fangirl in how old is your pc?   
    GPU is getting up there in age, think its about 3 years old now. But the rest of the system (CPU, mobo, RAM, SSD, PSU, casing) are all within the past year.
     
    Holding out for the RX6000-series, although tbh I don't really need it that badly even considering the GTX1060 is still plenty capable right now.

    BigRom got a reaction from Rooked in Lenovo IdeapadS145(one year old), Core i3 8thGen, 4GB DDR4 2400MHZ RAM, 1TB HDD(no SSD). Persistent 100% disk usage. Upgrade RAM or install SSD?   
    4GB RAM isn't enough for Windows 10 tbh, unless you're really diligent at killing all background tasks and making sure nothing unnecessary is running. There is so much crap running in the background that its almost a joke, maybe Windows Debloater (its on Github) and try to get rid of some of the bloatware that comes with Windows.
     
    I would recommend to get an 8GB SODIMM module, throw in an SSD and clean install Windows. That should get the laptop feeling like new. If you can't afford an SSD right now, then get the RAM and re-install Windows.

    BigRom got a reaction from AbydosOne in HELP IM HAVING RAM XMP ISSUES   
    1st gen Ryzen is much more finnicky than newer Ryzen in terms of RAM, and for your specific motherboard anything above 2666Mhz is classed as OC (for 1st gen Ryzen) so Asrock can't guarantee it will run at those RAM speeds. Scroll to "Memory" section, refer Summit Ridge

    BigRom got a reaction from Dissitesuxba11s in what and why did you name your storage drive   
    I do this too but more for identifying purposes, so if any of them dies on me I'll have an easier time fishing it out. 
    Its not fun at all trying to identify which HDD is the dead one when I have 3 in the casing (not including the SSD) and a whole rat's nest worth of cables to work through.

    BigRom reacted to Dissitesuxba11s in what and why did you name your storage drive   
    I'm a bit boring as well. I named mine with the brand and the capacity i.e. WD 3TB or Samsung 860 EVO 1TB.

    Doable, although I have a lot of reservations about cheap PSU & SSD and its longevity. Also gave you an ATX case in case you wanna upgrade in the future to a more full-featured & larger motherboard.

    BigRom reacted to bellabichon in 2nd ever build, open for suggestions   
    Looks pretty good to me, but that motherboard is way overpriced, especially for a Ryzen 5. I'd recommend you take a look at the Motherboard VRM Tier List, especially since you're planning on overclocking. My personal recommendations from that list for your build would be the MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK, or the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI).

    BigRom got a reaction from johntoch in Is RAM incompatibility a big deal?   
    Motherboard manufacturers can't possibly test every module out there, the list they have is just what they have already tested.
     
    FWIW, RAM compatibility will rely more on the IMC of the CPU than the motherboard. The motherboard is usually a limiting factor in how fast the RAM can go, the motherboard can't really help you if the CPU doesn't like the RAM.

    The site itself is fine, pretty sure its like the top e-commerce platform in my country. 
     
    However some listings are sketchy af, I definitely wouldn't order from whatever link OP posted. Pretty sure he can spend a bit more and get an RX580 8GB from China on Aliexpress or Taobao, way better than whatever sketchy "GTX1060" that is

    There are reliable sellers who many people have ordered from and had no problems. Heck some even offer better discounts online than walk-in lol
     
    Usually red flags would be a profile with little feedback, very few listings and as little information as they can possibly give.
