    The_Other_Cody reacted to AnonymousGuy in NVIDIA, this is NOT ok!   
    I just modified a Bykski backplate with a DIMM waterblock.  Works great.

    Also in typical EK fashion...that backplate they're using is hilariously thin and shitty compared to the Bykski one.  Going to warp like a mo-fo when you go to actually tighten it and it's not going to compress thermal pads.  And wouldn't ya know it, mine does a better job than theirs too:

    This is running at unlimited power (about 700W from the wall) while mining.

    What motherboard, CPU, etc.? Helps to include this so other can google an image to better assist.
    Are you talking about the screws on the AMD CPU cooler? They might be captive screws which is why they will completely unscrew but not come completely off. I would make sure all 4 screws are completely unscrewed and then just lift the cooler off the mobo.

    My understanding is they don't throw anything out unless its broken and what they do throw out gets recycled.

    Are you plugged into the 3070 or the integrated graphics?
    Because the FPS you describe sounds like what I got with my integrated graphics.

    when you run a media company, you can then decide how your employees with dress and be groomed. Until then, this is how Linus wants to run his and allows his employees the freedom of being relaxed and enjoying themselves.

    They are a media/tech company, not a law firm. Why does it matter what an employee wears if they are getting their work done?

    IMO, if someone isn't talking in-person to corporate big-wigs in official settings, if they get their work done, they can wear what/look how they want.
    Also, who are you to judge? It ain't your company.

    The_Other_Cody reacted to Vitamanic in Low cpu usage high gpu usage   
    You have a 16 thread CPU. Games don't max 16 threads, so that's expected that it's not showing 100% usage. If you check individual threads you will see at least one getting pegged at 100% if the processor is the bottleneck and that's all that matters.
    As far as your GPU not capping out, that's also expected at 1440p. You're going to be CPU bound in those circumstances for most games with a card like the 3090.

    The_Other_Cody reacted to Carbonado in Haven't built a pc in a very long time, checking if this build looks fine.   
    It's almost the perfect system for a under 1000 build, except with that budget, I would recommend you going 3600Mhz on your RAM, as that will bump up your performance on Ryzen platform

    The_Other_Cody reacted to SpiderMan in a build im plaining   
    The maximum RAM speed a Ryzen 5 3600 can handle officially is DDR4-3200. Anything over is considered an overclock and is limited by the integrated memory controller inside the CPU. You may get lucky with DDR4-3600 running properly or the integrated memory controller won't work at all and cause instability/crashing. DDR4-3200 CL16 or DDR4-3600 CL16 or CL18 are your best bet to pair with the Ryzen 5 3600. 
    A B450 motherboard will support Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, which should mark the end of the line for AM4 socket. You don't need to go with an B/X5## board since this board will support Ryzen 5000 series with a simple BIOS update.

    GPU would make a bigger difference, but it's a really bad time to buy a GPU. 
    If you're planning on upgrading both anyway, go for RAM now and then once prices aren't insane, upgrade the GPU.

    The_Other_Cody got a reaction from TrevorGK88 in First time Build   
    Was my exact thoughts, I would look into recommended ram speeds for the 3700x and try to match it up.
    With your AIO and x570 motherboard, you have some room to OC the CPU and with the decent airflow you can pull through the case, some room to OC the GPU as well.
    Only recommendation I would say is to get a big ass HDD and download every game you own, you most certainly have the rig to place it.
    Welcome to PC gaming in all its glory.

    After scouring some AMD forums, it looks like your full load temps are where they should be topping out at the low/mid 70's. I would just make sure your fan curves scale with the CPU so as it climbs, everything scales up to get that hot air our of the case.
    Did you end up finding a good set of quiet fans? I was the Noctua stan from the other thread 😉

    We should all be used to Intel pumping up the voltage of the same CPUs every year for a 5-10% improvement with a new lake name, instead of actually innovating.
