  • Biography
    I'm a 16-year-old full time student, and part time buyer and seller of PC parts and audio devices on eBay, though know a lot less in each field than you might think! I also have an overriding tendency to procrastinate beyond belief, and upgrade my PC every few months once I become obsessed with a certain component, though limit myself to a PC worth no more than about £700, as I really don't often have that kind of money to spare! Also have a terrible track record of damaging high value components in strange ways, however as soon as something is cheap it has a much better chance of survival with me!

  1. Hey so that really, only looking for 11.6 inches or smaller, with at least a decent iGPU (Ideally a Ryzen laptop?) I'm not bothered about which manufacturer makes it, or how thick or heavy or hot or indeed old it is, so long as I could get away with at least light eSports titles on it, as my Clevo is a little big at 14". The best I can find is the Clevo W110ER, which has the GTX 650 in it, which is about where I'd like the GPU to be able to perform, and not that I'm too bothered about price but that PC is very expensive for what it is and never becomes available in the UK with the dedicated 65
  2. £200, (~$230) which is about £100 cheaper than most but I would be able to get one for £220 if I looked for a while
  3. So I buy a used Vega 64 for my friend who wants a gaming PC and I get greeted with this when I go to repaste the GPU die. The card appears to still work though has significant chipping to both the edge and centre of the die (Yes it is perfectly clean and has been fervently wiped), a problem which manifests gradually over time I believe, and whilst it isn't an issue now could soon become one, and whilst if it was me I would take the risk of keeping the GPU until it eventually broke, though my friend is tech illiterate and I live far enough away from him that troubleshooting/ parts replacement w
  4. I believe code 40 means system is waking up from a S4 sleep state, go into settings and put hybernation mode to off in your OS under power settings. This should resolve it
  5. Oh and the HDD/ SSD combo is a bit too much, pretty sure you could get an m.2 for that price and you could get a new 2tb HDD for £30 most of the time. Everything else looks good tho
  6. Also that motherboard is too much for what it is, you could get a top of the range-ish b450 for that price
  7. Would you be prepared to go used? If not still swap the 3300x for a 1600 "AF" and that video card is overpriced.
  8. In theory? Yes. It looks like a standard ATX layout in there to me, which means any M/ATX board should fit in fine. Though like I said, do at your own risk, the airflow in there looks poor and that PSU, whilst a decent unit for more low power builds, will be stretched with a 2700. I'd say an 80+ Silver or better 550W would be your best bet, and they aren't too expensive.
  9. Try not to cut corners. You could get a crappy B450 but I wouldn't recommend it, instead I'd wait for a while if I were you until you save up enough for a decent combo, including a new PSU as it most likely wouldn't suffice for more than a few months before taking all of your components with it.
  10. Also as @gloop says that 450W VS unit is far from ideal for a 2700 and presumably a GTX 1060? You'd be pushing it for sure and I wouldn't take the risk.
  11. You will need either a B450 "Max" series motherboard or a new B550 board, providing that case is standard ATX. However, why not just upgrade the case too? As it would look much better and airflow would be far superior to a prebuilt case, and it looks as if you've replaced the GPU and PSU already.
