  1. The latest bios is good indeed, I asked the salesperson to flash it to the latest one when I got the board, which is v1A. It would still throw a CPU Error on boot, but when I almost lost hope, it booted correctly on the 4th attempt. Now there aren't any issues at all, but the only options I did in the bios were to enable virtualization and A-XMP. I read the horror stories at r/msi_gaming and was ready to return the board. There's a new beta bios from a few days ago, but I won't bother with it. It's definitely not a board I'd recommend for beginner PC builders.
  2. I'd suggest saving up for X570, Tomahawk Max or wait for B550. I recently built a system with a B450 Tomahawk and a Ryzen 5 3600 and there are issues. My system booted on the 4th time and I assume it's going to have the same problem when I disconnect the PSU.
  3. Bought my first WD drive. It lasted 10 minutes. ?

  4. Whichever fits your hand and grip style better.
  5. Got this Roccat Kone Pure Military for pretty cheap, because it's an old model. I love it, feels much better than my Steelseries Rival.
  6. Those aren't official, and no, it won't. Even a 1600 doesn't.
  7. Perfectly normal temperatures. Coil whine is increased by higher framerates.
  8. The FX-8350 was actually not that bad when it first came out, but in games it had lesser performance than Sandy and Ivy Bridge. That was mainly due to the Bulldozer architecture which had very limited FP performance. The original Bulldozer CPUs like the 8150 were actually really terrible and worse than the Phenom II in terms of IPC.
  9. It will boost to 3.9 GHz only in very specific single core loads and it most likely won't be sustained for long. Single core turbo is just like Intel's TDP - the only purpose it serves is marketing.
  10. I did too, because it looks like Firefox now and I much prefer that tab layout, but a ton of people at the office and on r/chrome bitched about it.
  11. This seems to be the first time Google does a UI/UX design change that users actually want.
  12. Intel is way overpriced in most of Europe. Ryzen 7 2700x costs about the same and is a better CPU overall.
  13. Why not both? Get the one you want more first. They provide different gaming experiences. Getting a gaming PC makes more sense if you are into online games, while the PS4 has better singleplayer exclusives and RDR2.
