  1. Not sure what screws you mean, but have you installed all case standoffs?
  2. Should work but it isn't the best PSU (low priority tier C in tier list). I would recommend an MSI MPG A750GF instead
  3. Shouldn't be an issue as there's a BIOS flashback button. It will probably come with a BIOS recent enough, but if it doesn't you can use the button to update.
  4. Probably the original Acer kit. The motherboard will automatically do whatever it thinks the RAM can handle. There's no option for XMP so you can't change it manually
  5. That only supports up to 2133 as it has no support for XMP
  6. That should also work, but only with VGA as the others don't support the 3.5mm (see product image)
  7. Is it a laptop or desktop? I think laptops already run the highest supported by the board. Not sure what board Acer uses for desktops
  8. That update would not really help for your issue. It improves the speed from 12gbps to 14gbps. If you still want to try, make sure the firmware is from the exact same card. I would recommend downloading from Sapphire's website instead of this. They also made a guide on updating it, which you should follow carefully. You can try that if you want. I've had to RMA my Sapphire GPU too during shortage and they gave a refund which wasn't exactly fun. So there's a chance they refund which sucks at this time, but they can also fix or replace (latter probably
  9. Do you know from what manufacturer your motherboard is? Usually it's under a tab with overclocking.
  10. Maybe something like this will work? https://www.amazon.com/Optical-ROOFULL-Extractor-Splitter-Converter/dp/B01LL5RI3Y/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=hdmi+audio+converter+3.5mm&qid=1632145240&sr=8-4
  11. A 6600 XT is cheaper and slightly faster, but misses features like Nvenc, Cuda and RT. If you care about those features keep the 3060, otherwise a 6600 XT would be good. The RM650x is currently on sale on Amazon. Slightly lower wattage, but still more than enough and much better than that RM non x. That CPU is stupidly overpriced. For the same price you can get a 10900 or 5800X. For gaming best would be a 6700 XT + 10600KF, if you don't care about the features I mentioned earlier. This should also be good for your school & work.
  12. Something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Extended-Waterproof-Foldable-Keyboard-Consoles/dp/B07J4HNSR7/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=mouse+pad+white&qid=1632135358&sr=8-6 If you want something better quality get this: https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-PC-Gaming-Race-GW-XXL/dp/B07L31QP4D/ref=sr_1_16?dchild=1&keywords=mouse+pad+white&qid=1632135358&sr=8-16
  13. Usually 3 fans are quieter as they have to spin slower for the same temp. But 2 fans can still be better if the 3 fans and heatsink are low quality while the 2 fans and heatsink are good quality. A 3 fan Gaming Z or Strix would be best, with my preference going to the first as it has better customer support, but 2 fans are enough. What specific versions are available?
  14. That's because Minecraft isn't optimised for using multiple cores. I think it only uses 1 or 2. If it shows 100% it means it's using all cores. Try enabling every core in Afterburner and see what they are like, but I'm pretty sure you're CPU bottlenecked as a 2400G simply isn't made for 20 chunks Running performance optimization mods may help for multi core usage. You can also allocate more RAM to the game which should help a litle bit (I recommend giving it 8gb) I have a 10400F and 5500 XT, which is a better CPU and much better GPU, and still get 40-50fps with your set
  15. What motherboard do you have? On the support page there's probably a utility for RGB control.
