    TylerDurden! got a reaction from DoctorNick in How many fans   
    You can literally use as many fans as you can fit into whatever case you are using.  You can use a splitter and hook up multiple fans to the same header, or you can hard wire them to power, or run them off of a fan controller.

    be an independent contractor.  If they (clients) seem sketchy then have a parent set-up a company and work through that.

    TylerDurden! got a reaction from merlin95 in RTX 3060 Ti not keeping up with Ryzen 5 3600?   
    that "bound" thing is sorta misleading, for your system, the gpu is the bottleneck 36% of the time during the benchmark, the other 64% could be a combo of cpu & ram.  If you are at 0% gpu bound, then the rest of your system is the bottleneck for the benchmark.  For your system, I would just call it normal.  But then again you are using GPU that is twice the cost of your CPU

    Any fan is loud at higher RPM, have you played around with fan curve's first?

    TylerDurden! reacted to Moonzy in I CAN'T GET MY RAM TO 3600 & THAT'S WHAT'S IT SHOULD BE   
    officially its supported up to 3200MHz, above that is not guaranteed to work
     
    if enabling XMP doesnt work (fail to post or unstable), then leave XMP on but turn freq to 3200

    Keep turning them until you hit the end stop- the mounting pressure is tighter than you think.

    Look in the Event Viewer and the subsection of System, see if there are any red ! points that might point to more info.

    TylerDurden! got a reaction from Mark Kaine in Is PC gaming going to price itself out of relevancy?   
    go crack open some pc magazines from the 90's,   What was that big computer mag called, computer shopper or something.  You will see some nice prices.  go check prices in 2001.  I paid around $1000 for a system then.  I would say we have a much larger spread of what is available now and the prices are fair.  Take Ryzen motherboards, do you really need a $300 motherboard?, when a $100 board would do just fine?  do you need to spend stupid money on 4ghz memory or will 3000 do just fine?  GPUs are very inflated right now, but most people probably game at 1080, and even if you do have 4k and want to play that, then 30 to 50fps is still playable for most titles.  Cases are still the same price, unless you need to have something fancy.  We didn't have plexiglass or glass sided cases either, we use to have to take a friggen cutoff saw and customize our cases.  We even used those thin florescent lights instead of led strips they have now.  The biggest driver now is good ol supply and demand, although alot of it is pandemic related, along with an unexpected surge in people wanting to get into PC gaming, and here we are.  I would even say some prices are even artificial right now, but people are buying it up anyway.

    TylerDurden! reacted to DoctorNick in GPU fan started making a sort of grinding sound after about just under 2 years of use   
    As Zotac has a standard 2 year warranty according to their website, I would just write them and ask for replacement fans or RMA.

    For that kind of cooler it is way too high. Did you apply proper thermal paste? Can you hear the pump running?

    50% CPU usage doesn't sound very idle to me. We cant tell if it's some anti-virus scan or update in the background, because you haven't shared enough...

    TylerDurden! reacted to jaslion in Just upgraded PC. Certain games resetting the entire computer on launch.   
    Check temps. Might be doing a thermal shutdown. How did you mount the h100? Ryzen wasn't out then so it shouldn't have mounting hardware.

    TylerDurden! got a reaction from isHypnophobic in I can' fit my ddr4 in my ddr4 slot :/   
    your only options are to either
    buy memory with no heatsinks
    buy another MB
    or take the heatsinks off the memory or at least one of them
