    Demonic Donut reacted to TheDankKoosh in Tomahawk x570 overkill?   
    Asus X570 TUF and X570 Aorus Elite are perfectly capable of handling a 5900x while being cheaper and having any feature that you could really want.
    You do lose PCIE lanes on B550, so if you wanted more than 1 NVME drive, you'd not be getting gen 4 speeds, and they'd be going slower from the chipset to the cpu.

    Buying and selling is forbidden anywhere but the classifieds. Even if you did post there, this would not fit our forum.

    Demonic Donut reacted to Bitter in My Gaming PC is not selling!!! Please Help.   
    If that one picture and the words 'gaming pc' are all you're giving buyers to go on then it's never going to sell for $345. Best I'd do is like $50 for the case and PSU because I have no idea what's in it except that it's AM4 based.
     
    Ok  2200ge? No graphics card? That's not a gaming PC, that's an office PC that you played games on.
     
    Also where you're located makes a difference in pricing too I suppose. Caspian Sea is the biggest lake, but that doesn't have any surrounding countries that are next to any asian sea.

    Demonic Donut reacted to glenalz81 in New PC with an NH-D15 and a 3600XT on open air - 85 degrees at 95 watts?   
    Seems fine then.
     
    That was a noise normalised thermal test you linked to at 40db and the 47.5c is degrees over ambient.

    Is this 83c in Aida?   If it is then it's kinda where i would expect it to be.
     
    What's your ambient temp?

    Demonic Donut reacted to FloRolf in Using old NH-D14 with new AM4 build   
    Temps seem alright. The thing is, with the correct mounting hardware you could've rotated the heatsink by 90° which would benefit Airflow and look better. 
    Maybe you can change that once Noctua replies and sends you the stuff.

    Demonic Donut reacted to Naijin in Cooling/component fans issues   
    When your pc is powered on and you hear that noise, stop every fan by touching the center of the fan. When you find the fan that causes the issue, replace that

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from Hymenopus_Coronatus in 3700X - Overclocking Stability question   
    There is no one test that you can run to promise stability. I recommend using multiple stress tests to verify an OC. Only your use case will prove stability in that program. For example my aggressive GPU overclock is stable in everything I do/use except RDR2. CPU OCs can be the same.
     
    Different instructions and programs put different loads on the system
     
    Sometimes an OC can also seem perfectly stable until you have something that causes the load on the cpu to go up and down a lot.
     
    Personally, I use Prime95, cinebench, blender and the programs I use day to day to test stability. There are a ton of stress tests you can do, and the best practice is to use all of them.
     
    *Usually* if something is prime95 stable for over an hour, it'll be stable in 99% of situations.
     
    Buildzoid (Actually Hardcore Overclocking) has a video about cpu stability and stress tests where he goes over it as well.

    I really wouldn't recommend a cheap AIO. I wouldn't recommend any AIO, personally. The Hyper 212 is a bit over hyped these days as well. It was a good budget cooler years ago, now it has a lot of competition and is underwhelming for it's price.
     
    beQuiet coolers are great, and the scythe coolers are usually well reviewed too.

    Demonic Donut reacted to MaratM in Why are CPUs so much hotter than GPUs under watercooling?   
    Zen2 Chiplet size is around 70mm and it produces around 100watts (estimated) of heat under full load. That means 1mm2 produces around 1.3 watts of heat
    on the other hand rtx3080 is around 600mm2 and produces 300watts that brings us to 0.5 watts per mm2. This is why gpu is usually colder than cpu under watercooler.

    Demonic Donut reacted to For Science! in Why are CPUs so much hotter than GPUs under watercooling?   
    Yes, and the die itself is bigger for the gpu
  14. Agree
    Demonic Donut reacted to President Dawson Wehage in Why are CPUs so much hotter than GPUs under watercooling?   
    Because the GPU heatsink is actually contacting the die, while the cpu has a IHS which increases your thermals.

    Hyper evo is actually from my research not a great cooler, the cryorig h7 is far superior for a little extra.

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from Dr_Whom in What's with Linus' hate for Motion Blur?   
    It's clear and in focus... Because I'm looking at it. THAT is the problem with motion blur. It doesn't know what I'm looking at, so it either blurs everything that moves or tries to relate it to the camera. Its an artistic, artificial effect that they (game developers) either like, or think others like.
     
    If I'm focusing on something, I don't want it blurry. If I'm not focusing on something, it will naturally blur because of MY vision and not something being induced by the picture on the screen. Therefore, for me, motion blur is pointless because it adds stress to my system and looks terrible. It doesn't do anything productive or graphically superior.

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from Jason 57 in How should I position my case fans?   
    Try 4 intake and one rear exhaust. Assuming you have empty PCI brackets with holes in them. That might push more air to the GPU.
    Do you have bottom mounts?

    Demonic Donut reacted to Shreyas1 in Cam someone please help me with my homework?   
    Distance - scalar, how far an object moves from reference point in total, always positive
    Displacement -  vector, how far the object moves from reference point (distance and direction of object)
     
    So basically, in this scenario distance would be the total length the runner ran , and the displacement would be how far the runner would be from the point which he started. Since it is a circle, you will need to draw it out and then compare the distances between the two points

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from code99 in Gpu upgrade   
    This or a radeon 5700 are your two options at the budget.
     
    I doubt the processor will bottleneck the GPU you have the budget for. That said, if it was my build I'd probably try to save to upgrade the entire system at once. You're getting to the end of life for it.

    If you verify it's the fan by itself and not anything else in the system, start RMA with Noctua. The fans have 6 year warranty.

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from Pratham Bhatnagar in Terms in msi afterburner monitoring   
    Commit charge has to do with memory.
     
    FB usage is bus usage, the link between the card and board. Aka PCIe usage.
     
    I believe VID is for Nvidia cards, has to do with their video encoder.
     
     
    Google will explain everything you asked.
     
    The only thing that matters is temperature. Which will probably be high because it's a laptop. You can watch your GPU mhz but it doesn't matter really, if you see drops, it's probably thermal throttling.
     
    What do you mean there is no max temperature? Do you mean for recording data? Use HWInfo64.

    Demonic Donut got a reaction from Pratham Bhatnagar in Terms in msi afterburner monitoring   
    I don't remember if afterburner has an average or peak core temp. Just look in the settings.
     
    That's normal for a laptop. A lot of people repaste laptops or use liquid metal to reduce temps. My wife's laptop shoots up to the 80s whenever there is a load on the system, not even gaming. Its safe for them, just not ideal. Many laptops thermal throttle constantly while gaming.
     
    How old is the laptop? It might be wise to disassemble it to clean out dust. And if you have some good thermal paste, repaste it while you are in there.

    Laptops are notorious for high temps. Laptop cooling pads etc can help, even slightly elevating the base can improve airflow. If you have fan control, you can crank the fan to max. The CPU will protect itself from damage though.
