  1. Yeah I've got a similar motherboard (mpg gaming edge) for the same CPU and it works great. Maybe check your model has BIOS flashback, it makes it super easy to update your BIOS, with a usb stick and the touch of a button (almost literally). I think almost all the b550 have this feature tho
  2. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't fit. The define 7 is big, and the tubes go straight out of the CPU socket to the radiator at the top. There's no overhang on the side (unlike a big air cooler) so you're okay.
  3. It doesn't appear in BIOS if you put it in your system? Otherwise there should be a name somewhere on the PCB. Maybe it's hidden by the heatsink
  4. Salut poto ! Your build looks good. I feel like a Ryzen 9 5900x is a good idea if you go for game development. I think baking lightmaps in Unity relies heavily on CPU, or at least I think I read it on the Puget Systems website. But then again, most of the workflow is doing other things than baking lightmaps so... Maybe that's overkill. 32GB of ram is fine. 250GB storage is a bit too little. I would suggest getting a 500GB M.2 SSD (for the OS and softwares) and another 1TB/500GB SATA SSD (for project files and other data). I think it's always good to split your data on a few driv
  5. Update in case anyone has the same problem: the CPU was faulty. After the RMA process that last about 10 days, I received a new model and it works perfectly now.
  6. It all looks fairly coherent and it should work well. A few remarks still: You didn't get a CPU cooler, and it's a clever move if you want to save a few bucks as this CPU includes one in the box. But you should check whether your CPU temperature is okay once you built your system. There is no case in your list. Do you have one already? I would go with a B550 motherboard at this price point
  7. Is it a new build? Can you list the components?
  8. The way I see it, you'd be spending another 300$ for a feature you most likely won't need. And it's still 300$ that are gone from your wallet no matter how much money you spend otherwise. For the noctua this thing helped me: https://noctua.at/en/how-big-is-the-nh-d15-and-how-much-clearance-does-it-provide-for-ram-and-chipset-coolers You can always raise the second fan, so your real limit for RAM clearance should be the 64mm on the heatsink.
  9. A Noctua NH-D15 won't fit in a Corsair 4000D. On paper it should, but because of RAM clearance you'll need to either drop the second fan or raise it. Raising it adds a centimeter to the height of the cooler. Long story short, you need either a bigger case (one that allows for at least 175mm height in cooler, I like the Fractal Design ones) or another cooler. Consider an AIO, something like the Arctic freezer 280 would do, and I do believe it would fit in the 4000D. Cases are a headache honestly. My best advice is one I didn't follow: just make sure it fits everything you want and chose a desig
  10. It all looks good in my opinion, but you're way above your budget because of the stupid GPU prices. Do you have a way to find that graphics card for cheap? Also this CPU is a little bit old, I can only recommend the 3600, depending on what the budget allows..?
  11. I've had some good experience with a Synology NAS in the past. If you want to secure your data against disc failure you have to configure it on raid 1 or raid 10. Plug and play for hard drive is called hotswap. That's about the extent of my knowledge, not sure if that helps... This can get a little tricky, and it may require you to learn many new skills in networking, protocols, filesystems... Not impossible but getting the right components is only the beginning of a long journey.
  12. Your link doesnt lead to your build. Please use the permalink
  13. Did you try on other PCIe slots? Could windows 7 be an issue with this card? I'm guessing no because it's already stuck before launching windows yeah? Do you get any output from your mobo?
  14. Maybe it will improve performance by a small margin but only in specific games that are designed to take advantage of that. The bottom line is usually : no it's not worth it. It's usually better to get one single better GPU like a 3080, 3080 Ti or 3090 than to stack two 3070.
  15. I would advise against that, at least if your goal is to improve gaming performance. Even the most recent games never use all of 16GB of RAM or more. Your bottleneck is more likely going to be the GPU. It would be the first thing I upgrade in the future. For now it should do fine though. How much power can the PSU deliver?
