  1. Acer Swift 3 (SF314-56) disassembly and upgrade options This video shows you how to disassemble your laptop Your laptop has 4GB of ram soldered directly onto you motherboard which you cannot upgrade. However there should be another empty slot which can accept 8GB SODIMM DDR4 memory. You should use Task Manager to see how fast your RAM is running and check BIOS to make sure that your RAM is running at the highest allowed speed. This will also tell you what speed of RAM to buy when you are upgrading. You can also upgrade your SSD if you want, but the RAM takes
  2. you will only benefit from pcie 4.0 if you are a datacenter. The reality is that even a 5950X paired with a 3090 will not saturate a PCIE 3.0 slot. companies push that stuff because most people dont know better. By the time we get graphics cards that can saturate a 3.0 slot while gaming, AM5 and LGA 1700 will have come out for a few years already instead of going intel, buy a 3600 and a b550. This can allow you to swap out the 3600 for a Zen 3 later on as Zen3 is a lot better than 11th gen intel
  3. I am amazed at how much you managed to fit inside there! what are the specifications of your computer? also if your GPU is hot, why not drill some holes right below the GPU so it can get fresh air?
  4. Ouch. On the bright side, your mobo is compatible with all Core2 Quads Better go dumpster diving
  5. nah the case doesnt look old enough to be a sleeper
  6. I've been mostly lurking around on this forum but I thought I'd say hello and show my current. Its been through quite a few changes since then to get to where it is now. Sorry in advance about the cat hair, I have two cats ! Exterior View and Case Originally I bought a Cougar MX330 but after browsing Kijiji I found this beauty instead, a Lancool PC-K65 from 2012. Better yet it allowed me to fit a larger air cooler too! Unfortunately, the front USBs were not working (located under the flap at the top of the case) so I had to install a drive bay USB expansion thingy.
  7. Honestly 10 years is a long time for computer hardware. When the Phenom II 1055T was released, it was competing against first generation i5s and i7s. We are now on 11th gen intel chips. The first thing you should replace would be the PSU. If you have not modified anything in the computer for 10 years then it is likely that your PSU is reaching the end of its lifespan. Your motherboard is also very outdated. Theres no point keeping it as it dosent have modern feautures such as NVMe and PCIe 4.0 and your are stuck with older SATA II speeds for storage. Even buying a mothe

    Rate my pc

    The Dark Rock Pro 4 seems kinda overkill for a 3200G At least you wont have to change coolers for a long time though
  9. The USB header on your motherboard has been rotated 180 degrees compared to the blue ones in the other picture. The header is not missing a pin, its designed that way so you insert the connecter properly USB 2.0 header pinout
  10. What is your ambient room temperature? I have a 3600X as well and a NH-U14s, basically a single tower version of the NH-D15. I get about 35C at idle and about 60C on Prime 95 all cores with a room temp of about 20C
  11. oh dang, thank you for your help!
  12. any chance I could buy one off of you?
  13. They are both USB 2.0 headers but they are also backwards compatible with USB 1.1 You have two headers labeled F_USB 1 and F_USB 2
  14. I am thinking about building an small PC for my parents and I am looking for a clean looking ITX case with no side panels or super obvious vents. I cam across Fractal Design's Era ITX case that looked really nice: https://www.fractal-design.com/products/cases/era/era-itx/silver-white-oak/ Unfortunately the silver/white-oak version seems to be sold out and I can only find the gold/black-tempered-glass case. I am hoping to find something that is mostly silver or grey. They will only be using it to watch youtube and browse internet so I dont plan on putting in a discrete G
