  1. I would ignore that article as it is not good advice. You don't need an X570-E to run an 8 core cpu. You are probably better off going with a 5600X over a 3700X anyway unless your College work requires 8 cores.
  2. Yeah you would need to use bios flashback for that cpu. You would be better with a Z590 board anyway as you would then get pcie 4.0 support. Not a big deal as yet but it might be in a few years. If you have only just bought the board then you should be able to return/swap it. If for some reason you can't, then asking a pc store to update it for you would be the next best option. A 3rd option would be to buy a cheap 10th gen cpu such as the G5905 or any other Cometlake Celeron cpu and use that to update. Then just return it after. Just make sure not to use the stock cooler as you do
  3. Yes you don't need a cpu to update with a board that has bios flashback.
  4. I am guessing that the board doesn't have the correct bios for that cpu. You should have ideally gone with a Z590 board or one with bios flashback.
  5. They made it slower. https://www.extremetech.com/computing/326200-western-digital-caught-bait-and-switching-customers-with-slow-ssds
  6. The B550 Gaming Edge is £20 cheaper and has built in wifi. I would avoid the WD Blue SN550. The SN750 would be a better option for a 500GB version, and something like the Team MP34 for a 1TB SSD.
  7. Remove the front panel and the airflow is perfectly fine.
  8. The SX8200 Pro should be avoided as they changed out the nand/controller and it is slower now. The 5600X is the better option if he is using the gpu for encoding.
  9. Not overcomplicating anything, and yes they can cause issues. Ask someone that has extensive psu knowledge such as @jonnyGURU if you don't want to take my word on it.
  10. The Corsair cables look perfectly fine. Also extensions are never a good idea as you have extra cable length to hide, and you also have the added resistance. If the op doesn't like the look of the stock ones then he is better off buying a replacement set from somewhere like Cablemod.
  11. Not if you are just gaming, or don't need extra cores for other things.
  12. Hang on. The Corsair RM and extensions cost more overall than the RMx that already comes with full White cables. Not sure I get your logic.
  13. You don't need to spend a fortune on a cooler. A more expensive cooler isn't always better. Of course if the Scythe Fuma 2 fits his budget, assuming he goes with the 5900X then fine. As for undervolting there are guides on Youtube like the ones below. It is worth doing as you are getting extra performance.
  14. The 5900X actually runs cooler than the 5800X. So if you don't need anything major for the 5800X then you don't for the 5900X. https://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/luke-hill/amd-ryzen-7-5800x-cpu-review/16/ Also why would you not undervolt ? You will get better thermals, so there is no reason why you shouldn't if temps are on the high side.
