  1. Hmm then GPU issue? this is very weird and i have no clue, im playing Smite right now (35 min so far) and gpu temp at 51°c (Hwmonitor most recent version) maxed out 1080p, and chrome with 3 tabs plus steam. BTW i disassembled everything 4 days ago to clean with compressed air, what about faulty unstable nvidia drivers? gonna google now and check anything related to my current driver 441.41 thx guys!
  2. Below 50°c (ryzen 3 1300x potato cpu) package always below 45°c with hyper 212 evo. GTX 1650 Super maybe at 45°c or bit more, right now im rendering a picture from 3d model in blender (1k samples high quality) and temp increased to 49°c been like that for 3 minutes. Damn im worried something is broken or about to explode, what kind of malfunction can cause this problem? the no signal/black screen with fans spinning very fast. Ryzen 1300x (rendering with blender) 36°c GTX 1650 Super (GPU rendering 49°c) ima try with Smite again, btw i dunno why i said dota2, i WAS downloading
  3. (my english is very bad sorry) Well i bought CX550 and GTX 1650 Super but couldn't install the new hardware till last week, everything was running fine, no problems whatsoever BUT 10 MIN AGO... I was just watching facebook, steam and dota2 minimized, some other tabs with news bout damn coronavirus and suddenly POOOOF!!! screen goes black, no monitor signal, some fans spinning very fast (dunno which one, if gpu fans, case fans or cpu fan) i was freaking out and pushed the power button to shutdown the computer asap, then ac power regulator, i waited like 2 minutes and pressed power button (
  4. bit off-topic but just wanted to share some thoughts, I finally bought CX550 2017 (arrives in two days) due high positive reviews in linus tech forum and some other websites plus it's ranked Tier B+ meaning it's supposedly superior to some tier C or B gold units like EVGA 600 GD 2019, anyway i hope i don't regret the purchase coz omg cx550 was very cheap, it makes me feel kinda unconfortable that i might get some low quality garbage but i trust linus tech tier list more than all those guys in tom's hard, techpower or reddit saying: "dont go cheap on psu, u get what you paid for, if it blows do
  5. yeah i like the CX550m semi-modular design but i've been reading about it right here in linus forum and CX550 is slighly "better" or that's what it seems... "the cx is a LLC Resonant, the cxm still double forward" (LukeSavenije) then another guy said CX is preferable over CXM but nothing else. BTW is there any page with CX550 & CX550M full specs? corsair official site doesn't mention anything about protections (OPP, OTP, SCP...)
  6. Almost a month later im so sorry... I think im getting the CX550 or CXM550 according to psu tier list the CX550 is Tier B+ thats even better than EVGA 600 GD gold (tier B-) To everyone else what do you think guys? CX550 or CXM550
  7. yeah i think so, lets take the evga 600 GD at "mercado libre mx" cheapest one from reliable seller is worth 1899 mx / 20 = $94 dollars, RM750 would be $116 give or take few bucks, EVGA 500 GD price is $73. CX550M = $63 CX650 (non-modular) = $66
  8. nope, unfotunately can't find Antec psu's anymore, it's almost like the company didn't want to sell anything ever again in mexico, sure you can find some but not like evga or cooler master, they are everywhere plus plenty of rebranded chinese psu's. (also Rosewill and Bequiet are non existent here, that sux) And yeah this psu did very well, 7 years and still rocking, i hope my next psu last as long as this antec, seven !"#!$@ years im proud of this lil guy? but it's time to retire him and have it as backup in case of new psu malfunction or just to power up old potatos like my hewlett packa
  9. lmao that's the very reason why i was looking for >600w psu's oh god .... so there's no way this 100w card (gtx 1650 super) can draw over 200w or more power and the whole potato takes like 300w or less, jesus christ, i should change my nickname to "derpyburrito" asap, so my potato is ok with any good 500-550 psu, now i have to find something worth the price, if i can't find a good Corsair below 600w i'll wait and get the EVGA GD 500w or 600w (as GoldenLag told me to jesus that guy must think i do drugs or somethign).
  10. I wanna give a good retirement to my 7y old Antec 520w High Current Gamer HCG, it's been working for countless hours with no problems so far (thank god) and powering different systems (my old AM3+ potato), that's why i was looking at 600w> or more powerful psu's but it seems i don't need such power, the problem is that i can't find good 500-600w psu's and when i do find something good the price diff is so ridiculous that makes me hesitate and think twice before hitting that "BUY" button eg: EVGA 500w GD vs 700 GD price difference is about 15 dollars, i'm a newbie and when i see the RM750 fo
  11. Edit: Well guys, it seems i was wrong while looking for >700w psu's, my computer doesn't need such power nor will take advantage of having too much wattage, what i need is 500w or 600w tops nothing more, you can read all the fuss in case you are like me, someone who wants to buy overkill psu's to power up potato pc lol. Hello there, few weeks ago i made a topic asking for help to choose some cheap reliable psu, the EVGA 600 GD (2019) was the winner but the store where i get my stuff run out of 600w version ? so the only ones i have left to choose from were Cooler Master MWE 650 80 bronz
  12. dremel/drill and/or linesman/nose pliers
  13. imo any 2nd hand gtx750ti or 1050ti lol but don't listen to me i'm a newbie, nvidia works good with blender u can use the cuda cores option for fast gpu rendering.
  14. EVGA 600 GD out of stock, now i have to choose between 700 GD, CM MWE 600w or Gigabyte B700H, you told me MWE 600w was the plan B that's cool but over 700 GD? damn this sucks lol
  15. All right, i'll check gtx 1650 s availability, one day you can see a good deal with huge stock then next day price goes up for 10-30 dollars and no units available, that's mexico. Rog Strix ver is the choice, if can't find it next week imma get any other ver, i know im making a big deal bout low tier gpu but as i said, im paying $220 (there's no better price here believe me) plus new PSU.
  16. ohhh no, not the 1660 i wish lol, can't afford such thing here in mexico, well yeah i could but damn, what's the price in USA for 1660 super? 240 us? well here i have to pay 280-300 ikr that sucks. plus gotta change my old psu.
  17. Awesome, i'll get the strix Only problem is the connectors, my old Benq secondary monitors gonna be useless since both dont have any HDMI just vga and dvi-d, my main monitor is OK it has hdmi. What about those cheap "dvi to hdmi" adapters/converter? do you think that could work to keep my 2nd monitors?
  18. Greetings! ? I have this old 2013 "Revolt" ibuypower i-series 504 desktop computer that randomly with no apparent reason whatsoever goes nuts and loses video signal, it can take 30 minutes, one hour, sometimes 2 hours or just 5 minutes and then poof, bye bye video signal, screen goes black and different monitors say "there's no signal srry m8" jk I've tried with 3 different monitors, cables and connectors (DVI-D, VGA, HDMI) and nope, nothing, removed the HD7700 radeon card and it's been working for more than 5 hours with no problems so it's the HD 7770 huh? well maybe, because the PSU i
  19. The online store where i get my stuff from doesn't have EVGA, MSI or anyother GTX1650 Super, just Asus and Gigabyte, btw what do you think about that one? the gigabyte in the last picture. All the asus (and the gigabyte) cards have pretty much the same price, about $200-210 us dollars (yeah, thats what mexicans like myself must pay for low tier hardware) Local stores sell GTX1650 Super for $250-260 US. So Phoenix series are OK, the TUF could be noisy and less efficient due small/compact design (higher temp i guess) and Strix is meh, i can buy any coz the price difference is about 2-3 dollar
  20. Greetings! ? I was wondering if there's a real, significant difference between the next 3 gpu's all of them GTX 1650 Super by Asus, the TUF version has slightly more "boost clock" but that's it, can't find any other difference besides the obvious like the appearence, size, fans, connectors and Phoenix ver doesn't have backplate, Rog Strix version has some little RBG in the "republic of gamers" logo, i'm asking coz maybe one model runs hotter, noisy, have malfunctions or something undesirable. I'm going to get one very soon and so far TUF is my choice, i know RX580 is cheaper and better va
  21. i just took apart an old "Revolt ibuypower 504" computer and found some tiny green firefly inside, obviously poor thing was dead already but the thing that gave me the creeps was this weird amber, yellowish round thing near the gpu like some decomposed candy or something, this computer has never been opened before and it has layers and moar layers of aluminium plates so i wonder how the !"#!#$@ that thing show up there, i bet it was some bug egg sac or something nasty.??
  22. I was going to ask about why i shouldn't go higher besides fact i won't take advantage from the extra wattage, like does it explode or malfunction or anything bad could happen for having such potato running with 600-700w psu? Anyway i'll get the evga 600gd that one is cheap, actually all the psu's above are about teh same price but if for any reason 600GD runs out of stock what do you think bout Cooler Master 600w MWE 80 bronce or Gigabyte 700w B700H? excuse the engrish tyvm
  23. Hello there! greetings from tacoland ? I have few options to replace my 7y old Antec 520w HCG high current gamer psu, it still works with no problems whatsoever but ... this psu is very old, ima get gtx 1650 super or anything with 6pin connector then a better CPU in the next months so i don't wanna push it any further with more hardware, it might work for few extra years but i think it's time to replace it with something equal or better. Here you don't have too much to choose from, local stores suck, at best you find some evga 500w white psu or rebranded chinese psu's like 700w with 15a
  24. Ok sorry bout that golden lol, im bit clumsy, thx for the help, i'll get the gpu then look for a good psu, btw there's something very weird about Corsair psu's in most online mexican stores, all of them are refurbished psu's i could get the refurbished CX550 or CX650 and GPU at once but idk, anyway ty
  25. I don't want 2nd hand hardware coz it didn't go well in the past, don't trust people here in my mexican city that sucks i know but thats me So i should change my old PSU that's a priority more than getting new GPU huh? i could take the risk and get the Super 1650 or RX580 and pray it won't blow up, my results from most PSU calculator sites (either with super 1650 or gtx 1060) are (give or take) 328-420 load wattage so my Antec 520w should be ok... anyway have to think about it. This one is good? evga 700w GD 80gold 5 years warranty https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-GD-0
