  1. That's gold right there! He can even OC the CPU if needed, the RX 580 packs a MUCH bigger punch than a 3GB 1060.
  2. Good job figuring it out. I was starting to wonder what the problem was, sounded strange.
  3. It's an m.2 SSD? You didn't mention that part. Do you have sufficient lanes for it? Is it properly pligged in and secure? Please double check everyhing. As worst case scenario you might have to RMA it.
  4. At which point did I say that he should read the software readings? I said he should check it by MEASURING which indicates that I meant he should use a multimeter, it's standard equipment for any household, even cheap chinese ones are capable of reliably measuring low voltage DC. While I do have one, I'm guessing Oscilloscopes aren't that common outside of workshops? But, I agree on the ripple part, however, one of the first indicators of possible failure is voltage dropping under load. However, I don't know which brand that is, I have never even heard of them, so I'm not sure if they are reli
  5. Yup, no matter how good it was, due to it's age I wouldn't use it. You can check how good it is by measuring the voltage while it is under load, if the 12v falls under 11.85v consider it useless, however, it should keep at around 12v at all times. Any branded 450W PSU is more than enough for a 2200G.
  6. I would have to agree, but there was no valid reason to get rid of it. Also, I guarantee that any wired headphones will KILL any BT headphones in their price range and even ones that are 20-30% more expensive. Also, peripherals that have integrated batteries, like BT headphones are an overall POOR investment. Batteries start dropping capacity relatively fast, and I don't want to have headphones that are over 2 years old and can barely hold a charge to listen to music for a bit, let alone last a day. So, effectively, after 3 years I have a useless piece of tech on my table, while quality headph
  7. I agree, easily. The 2200G kills the Athlon and the 1050Ti is much better than the 1050. However, PUBG is an unoptimized mess, but it will run fine on it.
  8. The excuse would be that you already own a lot of high end/quality headphones and use them. Switching to BT is a pain and it requires that you buy new ones that are compatible and invest more cash to get higher quality ones compared to the traditional aux. Also, CHARGING! I don't want another tech device that needs charging, my phone, laptop and smart band are more than enough as it is. But there is always the option of going USB Type C to Aux like I do, sadly my new phone doesn't have aux and this adapter is an inconvenience.
  9. Could you unplug all the sata ports and have just the SSD plugged in and see if it detects it then?
  10. The OnePlus X is too old. Are you reading the latest news? Older gen iPhones get higher battery drain on the latest update. Nothing is safe and @Crunchy Dragon is completely right, getting anything above that barely makes sense. How about a OnePlus 5t or 6?
  11. I just took a screenshot. This is what it looks like.
  12. Anything low end with a Pentium/Celeron quad core and 4GB RAM. You will most likely end up with a terrible 720P panel and somewhat decent battery life. To be honest it will run Office apps and light browsing. However, I would suggest buying something more decent by either going second hand or adding more cash. Acer will most likely offer better specs at that price range at the cost of a cheaper/lower build quality.
  13. Get a digital wall socket tester. However, it will measure full system power use. Have you tried using MSI Afterburner and turning on the power consumption measurement. For example, my RX 570 4GB when properly tuned pulls 70-80W, which is confirmed when I did proper testing and calculations using the wall socket tester. You can see it in the image below.
  14. I'm back! What did I miss in the past 3 years? :D

      Uhm, so effectively it pushes my RX 570 4GB into a Vega 56 territory? I shall RGB it then and I'm even gonna push 13V on 12V LED. OC the RGB, daaamn, I might even go Vega 64!

    3. Den-Fi


      Addressable RGB has a bigger boost then regular RGB. I was able to push my 8700K to 6GHz!

      But what if I get an RGB CPU cooler? Does it affect the CPU more directly since it's on top of it? Does it boost the cooling? The voltages/clocks? Does it make my dads last gen R3 1200 into a R5 1600 or even 1800X? Oh the great mysteries of the RGB!


      On a serious note. I recently got an AsRock MB with a RGB LED controller, I haven't messed around with it, but how much do the addressable RGBs cost? Any guides on here?

  15. Well, I only have cash for CPU, motherboard, RAM. I'd still have to wait for PSU, cooling etc. So either way the build won't be complete before Christmas. Then I'll wait. Thank you very much for your help, cheers!
