  1. As i said earlier i know its better but for specific reasons i just can't right now. That's not really helpful.
  2. 3 Months ago i purchased a ~20$ Usb Wifi Key (Archer T3U). It worked very well until recently, it is randomly disconnecting for no apparent reason. I tried everything i could like changing the EEE standard, reinstalling the driver, using another driver recommended on their official website, literally COOLING it with a laptop air vacuum cooler, trying another USB port etc. It is still making me randomly disconnect. I'm about to loose my cool at this point. So basically my question is : Do you have any recommendation for a good USB Wifi Key which is stable and around 20-30$? Criteria :
  3. With a budget that high you could afford almost everything lol. Anyway here is what i think should be great for you and still has room for minor upgrades or get a brand new monitor PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gtrb68 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor ($449.00 @ Best Buy) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler ($109.95 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($190.00 @ Walmart) Memory: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory ($208.99 @ Newegg) St
  4. They seems legit. Btw those links are in french, are you french? And about which one well The V2 is much lighter (82g), more costly and can get to 20000 dpi, if you really are into high speed, cursors and more buttons (8), you can take it (Too fast is uncomfortable for me tbh im still at 4000dpi) The DeathAdder Essential is the cheapest, 5 buttons and provide a solid 6400 dpi for a weight just under 100g (96g). From the 3, probably the best bang for the buck since you dont really need to get a cursor way too fast anyway (still personnal feeling) The DeathAdder Chroma is between the two
  5. This is quite old posts from 2019 but it relates to your problem : https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/new-ryzen-3600x-overheat.3503352/ https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/cbls9g/the_final_word_on_idle_voltages_for_3rd_gen_ryzen/ Maybe you'll find some answers here. Im still pretty sure the Cooler isn't the cause and its more likely a problem from the CPU voltage or things around the CPU itself. I'll get some sleep its getting late in France, hope you'll find a solution while i'm off, Cheers!
  6. Lets try to squeeze more variables out, could you tell me your motherboard? Maybe it is a bios issue or driver so you may need to update it.
  7. Please don't tell people to repost their thread in the appropriate section, simply report it as being in the wrong section and we (moderators) will move it, usually within minutes of it being reported.

      Will take that in consideration next time, thank you.

      With pleasure, BTW, if you have any questions about the forum, don't hesitate to contact me or another mod! 😉

  8. Maybe to make sure you're getting the paste all over the CPU, try doing the X-cross paste application method. Make sure when you're placing the Cooler to screw little by little each side so the thermal paste will share an equal amount around your cpu. Idk what thermal paste you're using, but i would advice trying to get an Arctic MX-4 or Arctic Silver 5 if you want the top quality thermal paste. Also if you need a more silent cooler performing as good as the noctua, you can try a Dark Rock Pro 4 from be quiet! .
  9. Linux Mint for more windows experience'ish on linux Ubuntu because it has a huge community support behind it, so you would basically find answers to a problem or how to do something by googling it on the net, plus if you care about customization, it is way easier on ubuntu (GNOME environnement). POP OS More optimised for gaming. It is based on Ubuntu so every problem or things you need to look will be the same as ubuntu. Elementary OS Clean interface, looking like MAC OS. Manjaro Basically Arch Linux but without all the complicated things and command line needed to install the OS.
  10. With your RTX 3060Ti, it should be more than fine. I use a Corsair RM 650W (2019) 80+ Gold with my RTX 3070 and it runs perfectly fine.
  11. Pretty sure that CPU doesn't really need an upgrade yet, that would be wasting your money. My i7 9700F which i took from a prebuildt for my own build runs perfectly fine with an RTX 3070, maybe a bit bottlenecking combined with the low speed ram i have but im pretty sure your 9700 will be absolutely fine. Save your money.
  12. it's usually cheaper and you could have get a gtx 1650 super, if you really need a gpu right now you can take it but i would still wait for the prices to get down before buying a new GPU now. I think everyone already told you that but if you don't mind wasting your money over value sure, go for it. And about aliexpress, forget it. Most of GPU offers there are scams especially now.
  13. If you feel more confident at getting a system around 500$ and less, ready for upgrades too you can use this : PCPartPicker Part List: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i5-10400 2.9 GHz 6-Core Processor $164.99 @ Best Buy CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler $29.99 @ Amazon Motherboard ASRock B460 Phantom Gaming 4 ATX LGA1200 Motherb
  14. Why not just telling your total budget, then we can help you decide which part to take one by one if you plan to get them little by little. We also don't know what you are planning to do with your system (gaming? video editing? streaming? just school work? ...) Rushing to get parts especially now is not a good idea so if you want better value you should keep saving until you reach a certain budget (like 800 for example) and then buying everything in one swipe when prices are back to normal.
  15. for the same price at this AIO, i think a Dark ROCK 4 or equivalents should do the job more than just fine even for overclocking.
