  1. Is it a bad idea to buy a 3700x now that Ryzen prices will probably fall? I found this bargain but I'm still not sure.
  2. All the pins are fine and straight. I don't know if it's worth the risk to redo the soldering.
  3. I had a R7 2700 which didn't work (PC would't boot) because it had two broken pins. I fixed it soldering two new pins. I tested it two mobos and in both cases I only have 7,9GB usable RAM. However, it still gets dual channel. Overall it works just fine. Is there anything I can try? Thank you! PD: which CPU is better for gaming? i7 3770 (non K) or i5 4690 (non K). I used this ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 2x8GB CL15 Tested in Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H V2 (updated BIOS) and Bazooka V2 (unupdated BIOS).
  4. But isn't there any risk of short circuit with a heatsink touching a capacitor?
  5. Hi, I have this cheap GA-A320M-S2H V2 motherboard which has no heatsinks on its VRMs. I installed these heatsinks as well as I could, but I'm not sure if there is going to be any conflict due to one of the heatsinks almost touching a capacitor. Are they well installed? Any other recommendations to avoid CPU thermal throttling other than directed airflow? Thanks! Untouched motherboard:
  6. So what you recommend me is to try to overclock that 3000mhz RAM as much as I can? Will it be easy in a B350 motherboard? What else should I try in order to get the max potential out of the zen+?
  7. In that case, which graphics card upgrade would you recommend me? I'm looking more for used cards.
  8. I already have all of them but I want to sell worst one for gaming. Also, which graphics card would you recommend me to upgrade to?
  9. I've been doing my own research for a while now and I can't get an answer. I think the i7 and the i5 are better in single thread therefore they will perform better in most non new games (is that right?). I want the CPU exclusively for gaming and I don't think I'll stream. I can OC both i7 and i5 but it will be hard to OC the R7 because the motherboard has B350 chipset. I'll have good airflow and I bought heatsinks for the VRM tho. My GPU is GTX 1660 and I play 1080p 144hz but I might upgrade to a 1070 or a 1080 (ti?). If I upgrade to a 1070/1080 (ti) which processor will bottleneck
  10. I only posted it in a friend's house because I don't have RAM. I don't have the case neither. If you want, I can do a little update when I try it.
  11. First, I tried if it worked without these two pins, but it just would not post. I tried inserting two pins from an old AMD CPU into the MB socket so it made contact with the CPU, but it woulnd't post neither. It took me a while to get all the necessary items to fix it: soldering station (with flux, tin, etc.), 0,3mm copper wire, an AM4 socket motherboard to test it... I followed the same steps than this video: Here are two pictures of the fixed pins:
  12. Hehehe That won't happen!! I won't spend more than the 30€ I paid for this motherboard XD
  13. By the way. What RAM do you recommend me?? I haven't bought it yet. I want 16GB. I was thinking about 2x8 3000-3200 mhz pack.
  14. It's a 2700 non X. And why do you keep saying it's A320 chipset if Gigabyte says it's B350?
