  1. A 3600 would be a really good improvement. I'd look into some benchmarks in games you normally play. I'm thinking the reason you'd be CPU bound but only showing a small percentage of usage, 50%, would be the way the games are loading the CPU. You have a 6 core CPU. If CSGO is heavily using 2 cores(100%) and you have some background usage, that would average out to 50% on all cores. I'd look at individual core usage instead of overall. If you open task manager. Make sure it is in the expanded view, More Details in the bottom left. Click Performance. Right click the big CPU graph and select
  2. Yeah, I only linked the one I did since it's from MSI and would work with 5000 series. It's the one I used. If it doesn't work after the BIOS update, feel free to keep asking here.
  3. Correct, but page 22 will tell you what USB port to use to update BIOS without having to POST.
  4. I just did a build with the MPG/ITX version of this board and this CPU. Yes, you do need to update BIOS. It's hard to see from this angle, but there are DeBug LEDs for CPU, MEM(ram), and VGA(gpu). Your CPU one should be lit up right now correct?
  5. I use a 34inch ultrawide. If you have the refresh rate you can compete on anything once you get used to it. That monitor works for me at Masters and GM level Overwatch....
  6. What's your CPU usage at? If I recall correctly, both of those games are more CPU intensive.
  7. Came here thinking this was not about drinks and something else. Was going to say 8 years off that stuff. As far as drink goes... I work in a dry camp. So I'm a week dry.
  8. Different brands, AMD and Intel, will report temps slightly differently. Different architectures by each brand can report temps differently. Think of those programs as a one size fits all coat. Yeah it works for you and me, but it'll fit differently in both cases. AIOs and water cooling don't help all that much except in extreme cases. In a lot of cases a NH-D15 or similar will do just as well for a lot less. Full custom water cooling is more of a hobby inside a hobby.
  9. I would spend some time reading. For reference, the reason I was getting into margin of error. Let's say HWinfo is saying your CPU Package is 32C here. They have a +/- 5C margin of error on Skylake CPUs over the entire range. Let's say at under 50C, HWMonitor has a 8 or 9 C margin of error, but saying 42C, The temp could actually be within both monitor's margin of error. 27-37C and 34-50C https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/threads/cpu-core-temperature-measuring-facts-fictions.148/
  10. You threw me off when you said the water cooler shows lower temps. I can't find HWmonitors margin of error on temps. OR GPU-Z. How different are the temperatures they're saying from HWinfo?
  11. They're just fine. It's the limitation of high end hardware in an ITX case. GPU is a little high, but no throttling, and nothing will get fried at those temps. Different monitoring programs will interpret the 1's and 0's slightly differently. It's not uncommon for one program to say 81c while another says 75c You never did clarify what CPU you are using.
  12. https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/threads/cpu-temp-sensors-explanation.5597/ Still valid in 2019. With a better explanation of all the values.
  13. There's little nuances that could be helped by having more information. What CPU and cooler? 85 isn't that bad depending on what it is. Here's my 5800x in average game load...
