I am considering upgrading my platform from an old x58 EVGA, i7 920 - Would AMD or Intel be the best bet right now? Its been awhile... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMichaelB admin December 2019 Greetings Pam. That's a little tricky to answer as it really depends on what you plan on using the system for. For strictly gaming, the Core i9 9900K/KS still takes the crown, but the new Ryzen 3000 series offers a really great value for overall performance and multi-tasking. If you plan on gaming and streaming at the same time, I would have to recommend Ryzen just for the serious core/thread advantage. The platform features are nice as well with the addition of PCIe 4.0. I will say, the old EVGA X58 boards were my favorite to ever exist, especially the SR2. One of the most over-engineered board I've ever seen. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 41 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 39 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.2K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 95 New Members 169 Consumer Tech 50 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 115 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 243 Graphics Cards 183 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 64 Cases and Power Supplies 20 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

It all started with recommendations from an employee that had incorrect parts to having to take it apart and put it on a new mobo to trouble shooting random crashes. Since I did the build I was having issues where my monitors would go black and the fans would all kick up to 100% and I would have to hold the power button down to turn it off because it would just hang like that. I read all over at things that could cause the problems and always had hwinfo/ryzen master/msi afterburner running to make sure voltage and temps were all normal which they would be at the time of the crash and couldn't figure it out. Well tonight while sitting in game chatting to a friend my computer did the freeze/crash and the mobo went dark and only the ram stayed lit up. I couldn't get the computer to boot back up until I decided to pull the gpu out and it booted back up. I tried using my wife's gpu in the computer and it still boots back up but it won't with the 3080ti. I tried registering the card on the gigabyte website but I'm getting a 502 bad gateway and I can't find a number to call for microcenter to ask about what I should do. I have a bunch of questions about what could and did go wrong but my tech friends think it was one of the bad firmware cards that evga had. First question is do I get the card replaced at microcenter or evga? Second question would be is there a way to check to see if it really was the card that was bad and not anything else that could have caused the problem? It's a brand new build and the temps were always around 68-70c for cpu and 61-64c for the gpu. Sorry if a lot of this is kinda running on my brain is going 100mph right now seeing my new card not work. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer Ian admin October 2021 Accepted Answer Greetings.

CameronStrauser ✭ October 2021 in Prebuilt PCs and Laptops Hello again, Around 4-5 months ago my cousin and I wanted to know how I could change the LED lights on my NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070. After searching for like 5 minutes we found out on the NVIDIA website that EVGA has a steam app that allows you to check temperatures and play around with the LED lights. And recently, I found a tab on the app that says "Resizable Bar" and it shows me a "Status Checklist" of each main component of my pc. Each part showed a check... besides the motherboard. My mother board is the ASRock X570 Pro 4 and I didn't know the brand but I don't really care about that part. But I wanted to know why that happens or if I should bring it in or not. Here is a screenshot of the app on steam. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin October 2021 You can check if Resizable Bar is enabled directly in NVIDIA Control Panel, that is the most reliable place to check on this feature of your graphics card. Here is information Resizable Bar from NVIDIA directly: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5165/~/nvidia-resizable-bar-firmware-update-tool 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CameronStrauser ✭ October 2021 I just checked under "System Information" at the bottom right corner and it said that Resizable Bar is not enabled. What do I do from here? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin October 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/36883#Comment_36883 You'll want to ensure that it's enabled in the BIOS as well. Here is a quick guide on how to check with an ASRock board: https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/smart-access-memory Enter the System BIOS by press or during the system startup. Navigate to the Advanced Settings or Advanced menu. Enable “Above 4G Decoding” and “Re-Size BAR Support“. Save the changes and restart the computer. If this option is missing from your motherboard settings, you'll need to update the BIOS as it is possible that your BIOS may be from a date before resizable bar was supported. It's also important to remember that resizable bar isn't a guaranteed performance boost in all titles as some may show a slight performance regression when enabled. You'll want to test with and without for the games you play in order to determine if this setting is worth keeping on. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CameronStrauser ✭ October 2021 oh my god thank you so much that really helps me out a lot!! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin October 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/36897#Comment_36897 My pleasure!

I got to spend a week or so with each and unpack what makes each of them unique and worthy additions to your desk. EVGA Z15 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard EVGA’s new Z15 mechanical gaming keyboard is the most instantly recognizable of the three. It's fairly unassuming, only slightly larger than your average membrane keyboard, clocking in at a sleek and simple 5.94”x17.52”x1.48”. But don’t let its modest appearance fool you, the EVGA Z15 comes prepared to work. Built on top of a solid chassis, the metal plating under the keys offers both an unbendable base for heavy gaming sessions and a great reflective surface for the Z15’s per-key RGB lighting. And since it is per-key RGB lighting, you can make the Z15 uniquely yours by customizing each and every key with EVGA’s RGB Unleash Software (we’ll get to that in a bit), even adding patterned color shifting and reactive lighting. The EVGA Z15 feels built with convenience in mind. The wrist rest that it comes with is magnetic, so it’s not sliding away from the keyboard with every keypress. It has onboard dedicated media keys and a volume scroll wheel. No more closing Warzone to change Spotify songs. And if you, like me, get killed from hitting the “Windows” key every other game, you can turn on gaming mode with a quick FN+G to disable it and save a life. I got to work with the clicky version of the Z15, which means that at its actuation point, or where the keypress registers for the computer, there’s an audible “click.” That actuation point sits at 1.1mm of the total 3.5mm travel distance and requires 50g of force, enough to not accidentally press a key, but not enough to fight back. These clicky-style mechanical switches tend to be the preferred style for gamers, as the tactile “click” helps increase response times. I spent most of my time with the keyboard typing at work, where the click is a bit less appreciated by my coworkers, but I still loved it - when you’re typing all day, that satisfying “click” is a nice, constant reminder of progress. The clicky Z15 comes with Kailh Mechanical Speed Bronze Switches, but EVGA also offers a silent linear version of the Z15 with Speed Silver switches. The Speed Silvers offer the same responsiveness and durability (70 million keypresses!), but without that click that’ll annoy your coworkers and housemates. And if your roommates do complain about the clicky Speed Bronze switches, the Z15’s switches are easily swappable for any of Kailh’s other 3pin mechanical switches thanks to the included switch puller and easy swap design. EVGA Z20 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard The EVGA Z20 Gaming Mechanical Keyboard takes everything great about the Z15 and just adds more. The metal plate and media keys are still there, but now so is a USB and headphone pass-through - no more reaching to plug in headphones or flash sticks. Much like the Z15, the Z20 comes in both a clicky and linear variety, but the Z20 ups the switches to LK Light Strike Optical Mechanical Switches. Where traditional mechanical switches use mechanical elements throughout the whole switch, optical-mechanical switches add a sensor to each switch.  While optical switches are still mechanical, and will still provide that same tactile feedback (or silence, depending on your switch type), the optical sensor reduces wear from daily use, increasing their lifespan to a whopping 100 million keypresses. Optical-mechanical switches also decrease reaction time from keypress to response, making every movement feel more instantaneous. Plus, the EVGA Z20’s switches are a bit shallower than the Z15, with a total travel distance of only 3.0mm, though the actuation distance is a bit further, 1.5mm. They’re also lighter, requiring only 40g of force, making it slightly snappier than the Z15. But let’s not bury the lede too much - the big thing the EVGA Z20 brings to the table is the Time-Of-Flight sensor, or ToF sensor. The Z20's ToF sensor is proximity-based and can pull off some pretty neat tricks, like locking your computer when you step away and waking it from sleep when you sit down at your desk. The EVGA Unleash RGB software offers an impressive range of options for the ToF sensor, allowing you to set time and distance requirements so that you don’t accidentally put your computer to sleep when you casually lean back at your desk. And if you really want to make a splash when you return to your desk, you can have it create a cascade of light across the Z20. But the ToF Sensor is far from the only thing the EVGA Z20 adds to the Z15 base. The left side of the keyboard has been extended to make room for five fully programmable dedicated macro keys and a game mode button - no need to hit FN+G, now a single keypress disables the Windows key. These extra buttons bring the Z20’s size up to 5.94”x18.58”x1.48”, adding a fairly noticeable (but worthwhile) inch to the length of the keyboard.  Also in that added inch are light bars on either side of the keyboard. They’re purely aesthetic, but if you’re looking to light up your whole room with your keyboard, the EVGA Z20 is the way to go. Like the rest of the keyboard, the side lightbars are fully RGB and aren’t constrained to a single color - multiple LEDs on each side allow the sides to be pink up top and deep blue on the bottom. The X17 Gaming Mechanical Mouse EVGA’s X17 Gaming Mouse is, arguably, the most unique of their new peripherals. While it might not have a ToF sensor or optical switches, The X17 stands out thanks to a deep slope to the right side of the mouse and a large hump at the back left. This shape creates a natural cradle for your hand, rising to meet your palm and angling your wrist in a way to rest more naturally. And while a claw grip is theoretically doable on the EVGA X17, it’s definitely more comfortable with a palm grip, fully resting your hand on the mouse. Despite the gaming mouse moniker, the EVGA X17 is fairly low-key. It does have by-zone RGB and a slew of programmable buttons, but it keeps a minimal look. It integrates and hides its plethora of macro buttons and tools across the mouse. On top of the conventional left, right, and scroll-wheel click, the X17 has the still-fairly-common dual side buttons, perfect for both gaming and casual use. But hidden in the scroll wheel is tilt scrolling - pushing the scroll wheel to the left or right - and both directions are completely programmable. Tucked above the two side buttons is the gamer-focused “sniper button,” which drops your DPI while it’s being pressed. But, like everything else, it’s rebind-able for daily use or more personalized gaming. If your EVGA X17 gaming mouse is moonlighting as a working mouse, directly under the scroll wheel is a profile selector, offering a hot-swap through up to five programmable profiles. Set up one for Warzone, one for World of Warcraft, and one for Excel spreadsheets, then swap between them with a single press. And don’t worry - there’s a DPI swap button underneath it as well. It’s still a gaming mouse first and foremost, though. The EVGA X17 comes with three discreet sensors, a main Pixart 3389, and two LOD, or lift-off-distance, sensors. The Pixart 3389 is the X17’s main sensor and delivers up to 16,000 DPI, while the LOD sensors disable the Pixart as soon as you lift it up (as little 0.279mm of elevation!) so you don’t miss your shot adjusting your mouse. And while the X17 weighs a fairly standard 103 grams out of the box, if you find yourself lifting it too easily, it comes with five 5 gram weights to add some heft. Of course, it’s not a gaming mouse without RGB and by-zone RGB lights up the scroll wheel, EVGA logo on the palm rest, and the front of the mouse. And, like the Z15 and Z20 keyboard, it’s adjustable with the EVGA Unleash RGB software. The Software: EVGA Unleash RGB If you’re decking your desk out in EVGA keyboards and mice, you won’t have to worry about cluttering your PC desktop as well; the Z15, Z20, and X17 all use the same EVGA Unleash RGB software.  Unleash RBG is minimal and easy to use. All attached peripherals are shown at the top of the program for easy swapping. The majority of the space is filled with easy-to-understand diagrams of your mouse or keyboard, so you know exactly what you’re changing when you make your sniper button open your email instead of DPI Shift. Macros carry over between peripherals, meaning you only need to program a macro once and you can use it on any EVGA keyboard or mouse. And it is easy to use - simply create an empty macro then hit the record button. It’ll pick up every action you make, including mouse clicks and how long you held a key. No more mistimed ult drops when you time every keypress to be perfect! The RGB editor is just as simple to use but also offers some depth. All three peripherals come with several color profiles pre-loaded, but if you want to make your own, you have a swath of options. Not only is it by-key RGB, but also by-key RGB effects, meaning you can set your WASD to flash rainbow colors while the rest of the keyboard maintains a static white hue. Final Word: The EVGA Z15 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an easy recommendation, offering an incredibly solid and satisfying standard-issue keyboard. The EVGA Z20 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a bit more niche, but if you’re looking for a niche keyboard with neat tricks like a ToF sensor, you can’t go wrong with it. Lastly, the X17 Gaming Mouse is a great mouse for work and play, but I would recommend stopping by a Micro Center store to feel it before you pick it up, just to make sure it fits your grip. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Welcome to the Community.  I realize you made this post a couple days ago so you may have already gotten your answer, but from the pictures you posted it looks like you just forgot to plug in the 8-pin CPU power connector on the top left corner of your motherboard.  We also have a guide here that will walk you through other troubleshooting steps if you have more issues getting the system to boot.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Skyraider ✭ April 2020 Hi @eddie! I'm new to the community so I apologize for the late comment. If it isn't posting, but it looks like it's turning on, it could be the g.skill memory. My rig wouldn't post at first. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 with the 2070 super GPU. The Micro Center tech team checked with other memory and it posted. They let me swap the RAM with Ballistix.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_Cody ✭ April 2020 I have highlighted the area Tony has referred to.

A couple weeks ago, the graphics card fans started running full BLAST when the computer wakes up or powers on and never throttle down. Restarting or power cycling the fans do not help. I have tried updating the drivers, downgrading the drivers, and flashing the BIOS via Precisions X1. At computer startup, Precision X1 shows fan 2 at 0%, yet spinning at 3000 RPM. Fan3 reports at 100%/3000 RPM while fan 1 is usually off. When this first started, I could fire up a game, and after 30 seconds to a minute at the main menu, the fans would reset and start throttling normally. I could then get through the rest of the telework day with the fans behaving like they did when the machine was fresh out of the box. This temporary fix is no longer working, The fans rev back up soon after exiting the game. I’ve contacted EVGA, and they suggest a RMA. I cannot be down a machine for the 1-2 weeks a RMA would take. For a cross-ship RMA, though, they need an invoice. All I have is the Microcenter receipt that lists the assembled machine. I tried emailing MicroCenter, and was told to run my machine in safe mode. Calling, results in hours on hold. I cannot get in touch with a human to see if I can get MC to swap the card, or give an invoice EVGA will accept. On the off chance that this sounds familiar to someone, has anyone experienced similar behavior with their graphics card? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSMikeW admin November 2021 Greetings @MentalSchism Please provide us with the build number on your PowerSpec. This is located on the serial number label, on the top rear of the Chassis. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MentalSchism ✭ November 2021 Seems pretty simplistic, but hope this is what you are looking for: Model: G901 Build: 1 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin November 2021 @MentalSchism You're not seeing any available firmware updates in the Precision X1 software? I recall EVGA pushing out Quiet Fan VBIOS updates for these cards a while ago. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MentalSchism ✭ November 2021 There was a firmware update, but it did not resolve the issue. Fans still go full bore. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin November 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/37318#Comment_37318 Are you seeing any odd temperatures in Precision X? Seems weird to me that an auto fan curve would push to 100%, even when throttling, as they'd typically clock the card down to try to alleviate the higher thermals. I would start with ensuring the clock speed looks normal under load and that temperatures are not exceeding 80C (typical boost throttle temp). If neither of those things are present, we'd likely be dealing with a faulty sensor of some kind. As for RMA'ing through EVGA and waiting 1-2 weeks, I would recommend bringing the system back to your local Micro Center as we offer a 48 hour repair guarantee. Even if we don't have that exact card on-hand, our team will try to find something comparable or better to get it repaired within that timeframe. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MentalSchism ✭ November 2021 The highest temp under load I have seen is 83C. Right now, I have nothing bu the web browser open and Precision X1. The temp is reported as 27C. The fans are on auto: Fan 1: 1136 RPM, 37% - only fan that seems potentially reasonable. Fan2: 3364 RPM, 37% - this one seems to be misreporting the power. It often reports 0% with the same RPM Fan3: 3005 RPM, 100% - full power, but not under any load Changing to manual, Fan2 runs above 3000 RPM regardless of percentage. Fan3 can be throttled manually, but as soon as I flip back to auto, it goes back to 100%. EVGA did ultimately accept the prebuilt machine receipt and will do a cross ship. If, for some reason, the new card does not resolve the issue. I'll pack the machine up and drive it to Microcenter. This was our first PC upgrade in some time. Playing a bit of catch-up on what is normal with this hardware. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 41 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 39 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.2K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 95 New Members 169 Consumer Tech 50 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 115 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 243 Graphics Cards 183 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 64 Cases and Power Supplies 20 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I'm trying to figure out how to connect the psu to the mobo. The mobo has 1)ATX_12v_2x2 and 1)ATX_12v_2x4. I plan on OC'ing the cpu at some point after I get this up and running 100% so not sure what cables go where. I'm assuming CPU1 and CPU2 ports on the psu will be used, but the 8 pin cables marked cpu don't fit. What am I missing? Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance. steveHD 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Coneyman3 ✭ March 2020 I’d read the motherboard manual and PSU manual. But you need to make sure you are using the correct cables. The ATX should be pretty straight forward as these pins really only fit in one spot. Make sure the CPU 4+4 is going to the board, likely, in the top left, PCIe 6+2 is going to the GPU card, if applicable. If needed you will use the other 4+4 and plug it into the motherboard, plugging fully into the PSU, but the motherboard may only require only one part of the 4+4. I hope this helps. Please give an update. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin March 2020 You only need to have the 2x4 CPU power connection plugged in to get it to boot. You can use the extra 2x2 if you're planning on overclocking and your CPU has high power draw, however you should be able to overclock the 9600k even without using the 2x2 connection.  Make sure you have the CPU power cables facing the right direction.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 41 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 39 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.2K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 95 New Members 169 Consumer Tech 50 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 115 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 243 Graphics Cards 183 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 64 Cases and Power Supplies 20 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Qpnena ✭ May 2020 in Help Choosing Parts I am bulding my first PC and would like a review. I plan to use this computer to play games like the sims4, GTA, Minecraft, Secondlife, and code a little. Nothing to heavy. My intentions are to build something powerful on a budget that I can upgrade later without to much of a hassle. I am having trouble picking out a monitor, key board and mouse. I was trying to keep my final price under 1500USD. I am not sure though.  Sidenote: Not to familar with AMD and am scared to go that route even though I know its all the rage now and days. My friends AMD already crashed on him. Intel is has always been reliable for me.  Could you guys suggest or add your opinion. Maybe if you have a better build for my budget. Also, monitor either one big one or two I can put together. I plan to buy more little by little by Id like to get started ASAP.  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=dc2af2e5-bdf8-403f-a75c-1ae4ae766bd8 EVGA 600 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED CPU Cooler 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 edited May 2020 Hello @Qpnena! Welcome to the Community.  Personally speaking, I'm a big fan of AMD's new Ryzen CPUs. I'm rocking a 3700X in my computer and it's been rock solid for me so far. AMD's graphics cards have a little bit of a reputation for not having great drivers, but I've heard nothing but good things about their CPUs after their initial release. While the 9700k is a good CPU, I think it's a little excessive if you're planning on pairing it with a 1660 Super. You could take a step down on the CPU and upgrade your GPU and that would give you a better overall experience. You also have to purchase a cooler separately which is added cost. You also don't need three extra fans for the H510 case, it comes with two already and only has two more slots in the front.  Does your $1500 budget include the cost of monitor, keyboard, and mouse? Or are those separate? A decent monitor is going to run at least $100 or more, so that's something you'll need to consider. If so, I'd recommend stepping down on the CPU if  because it will free up some wiggle room for you. The Ryzen 5 3600 is an incredibly strong value at its price and doesn't require you to purchase an extra cooler either.  With that in mind, I put this together: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=37a5769c-1673-40b6-941e-c53c582f0f32 Switches out the i7-9700k for a Ryzen 5 3600X, which is technically a downgrade, and instead we upgrade the GPU to an RTX 2060 and add a Viewsonic XG2401 for the monitor. It's a 24" 1080p/144Hz monitor so it's a pretty nice overall package, and this leaves some room in your budget for a secondary monitor as well, or for switching back to Intel for your CPU if you really aren't comfortable going AMD.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BubbleMax MN ✭ May 2020 What heat sink/Water Cooler are you going to go with for CPU cooling? @Qpnena Just making sure your not going to forget about it.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rhott25 ✭ May 2020 Qpnena, I'm sorry I'm late to the party, but the build looks solid.

It's funny how every memory kit I bought, it comes with a badge for advertising. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 edited May 2020 G.Skill has some pretty high quality memory available. Like with any manufacturer there are some kits that aren't "great" per se and others that are, but in general I'd say G.Skill is one of the better RAM manufacturers.  Thankfully RAM is one of those things where it's not hard to find good kits from almost any manufacturer.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook C0v3rt_X ✭ May 2020 Agreed. I am a Corsair, Kingston and Crucial lifelong customer for customer service and warranty. G.Skill was my recent addition and zero issues with compatibility. I am sure they have great support as well. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin May 2020 I've used G Skill for a very long time, back when their heatspreaders were so gaudy and made installing tower coolers an absolute chore. While I've had issues with their... aesthetic decisions, their performance was always a huge factor in my decision. It was not uncommon to buy a cheap DDR3 1333mhz G Skill kit and manually overclock it to 2400mhz with just 1.65V. Now with DDR4, G Skill appears to have some of the best access to Samsung's B Die memory, making them a very sought after brand on the high end. That, and they often have memory overclocking competitions to show off their insanely fast kits. Nowadays I use a Patriot kit myself, mostly because of the aesthetics, but I still have all of my old G Skill kits as backups, even some from my DDR2 days. Despite me abusing my ram with aggressive overclocking, I've never had a single DIMM die on me, so G Skill gets my respect for durability. That, and the tame aesthetics of the Ripjaws V is worthy of some praise in a world dominated by RGB. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin May 2020 I'm a fan of G.Skill, currently running Trident Z DDR4-3600 CL16. Never had a problem with their products, but I'm not loyal to any manufacturer for memory. I do respect companies like Corsair for being a premium brand, offering a good product and service. However, with memory, it's always about finding out which models are using the best IC's, then you find the best deal that you can. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook C0v3rt_X ✭ May 2020 Michael and Mike, thank you both for your input. I cannot count how many systems I have built but there was zero complaints with the manufacturers I chosen.  Yeah RGB isn't really my thing but I can always leave it at a static color. To me having too much light can ruin the looks. G.Skill Ripjaws V was used in several systems both Intel and AMD with no issue so they deserve a spot in my brand selections. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BubbleMax MN ✭ May 2020 From what I've read, from googling and reading up about G. Skill its pretty much a high quality enthusiast level memory. That is pretty optimistic and most definitely fits most of the bells and whistles of a solid third party PC equipment in terms of being both reliably identified by many different Motherboards. To go along with being well balanced in terms of compatibility the G.Skill memory is also pretty good at being reliable/durable in terms of performance and lifespan as hardware. (As a side note I wouldn't say its the overall best but its quality made and reliable two things that might to the right customer justify such purchase.) The only real cons from a customer stand point would be the outrageous RGB with some of G Skills build designs and the price can be a bit high tier if you start looking for ram above 3200 mhz.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook C0v3rt_X ✭ May 2020 BubbleMax said: From what I've read, from googling and reading up about G.

Woah no need to attack me over my opinion I never ONCE said you HAVE to get RGB. I also said its "enthusiast" level RAM.  I didn't perceive his response to be an attack, just an expression of his opinion as well. Text can be pretty tricky when conveying tone, but I wouldn't sweat it. You are correct in that RGB is typically seen as synonymous with "enthusiast" or "gamer-grade" components mostly due to recent marketing trends. Most of the older enthusiasts have grown quite tired of the trend, as we miss our dull, "neutral" color tones, but luckily most RGB hardware gives you the option to disable the lighting. When all else fails, there's always a dremel, lol. Its also important to keep in mind that while brand names can be good for judging quality based on the history of their products, it's not always a simple comparison either. While a brand may have an extremely reliable halo/enthusiast tier product, their budget offerings may not be as reliable, or might be poorly reviewed in comparison. When I shop for memory, I pay less attention to brand names and more attention to the quality of the DRAM IC's themselves. Do they have Samsung B-Die, Micron E-Die, Hynix CJR? etc. Afterwards comes aesthetics, then pricing. This order will differ depending on your priorities. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook C0v3rt_X ✭ June 2020 BubbleMax said: C0v3rt_X said: BubbleMax said: From what I've read, from googling and reading up about G.

Whether it’s your first time building or you’re an experienced builder and need some extra clarification, this post is for you. With all the options available on the market, it can be overwhelming, but we’re here to help break it down.   If you’re looking for other parts as well, be sure to check out some of our other guides: How to Choose PC Parts: The Processor How to Choose PC Parts: The Video Card How to Choose PC Parts: The Motherboard How to Choose PC Parts: The Power Supply How to Choose PC Parts: SSDs and Hard Drives How to Choose PC Parts: The Case   We’ll be going over how to choose your RAM. Like the motherboard guide, this one is going to be a little more “conceptual” without specific recommendations for a kit. Instead, we’ll go over what sorts of specs/features to look for based on your personal needs. As always, some key questions: What are you using this computer for? This is the most important question when it comes to choosing your RAM. For any given task, you only need so much memory and what you’re doing will determine how much you should get. What kind of motherboard and processor do you have? While rare, compatibility issues with RAM do exist, so be sure to verify compatibility with your motherboard and CPU. Are you overclocking your memory? If you’re a person who’s really into memory overclocking, you’re going to need to pay special attention to what RAM kits you’re going for and what type of overclocking capabilities it has. Things to know when picking RAM: What does RAM mean? RAM stands for Random-Access Memory but is also known as “memory.” RAM is used as a temporary space to read and write data for active applications and windows on your computer. CPUs are much faster than a hard drive or SSD, and if your computer were only reading/writing directly from the drive, it would be very slow. Instead, we use RAM as a high-speed access point for your CPU to get the data that it needs. DIMM is another term you’ll sometimes see used for memory. It stands for Dual In-Line Memory Module and is the technical term for an individual stick of RAM. Individual sticks of RAM are sometimes referred to as "RAM modules" or as a "memory module." What is DDR? (DDR4, DDR3, etc.) DDR stands for “double data rate.” The full acronym for what we currently call “memory” is DDR SDRAM - Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory. The full technical explanation of how it works is a little complicated, but in very simple terms, SDRAM would only transfer data once per clock cycle. In contrast, DDR SDRAM can do it twice, effectively doubling memory bandwidth.  The number after DDR specifies which type it is. DDR4 is the most current, preceded by DDR3, DDR2, and DDR. DDR5 will be coming in the future. What is RAM speed? RAM speed, or RAM clock speed, is how fast your RAM cycles, measured in Megahertz. DDR4-3200, for example, is DDR4 memory designed to operate at 3200MHz and is going to be faster RAM than DDR4-2400.  Something to clarify is that DDR memory isn’t actually 3200MHz, it’s 1600MHz, but because it’s double data rate, it’s effectively 1600 x 2 = 3200MHz, so it’s advertised that way. If you were to check the speed of the memory in Windows using monitoring tools, they’ll often report them at that “halved” speed. That doesn’t mean anything is wrong, it’s just the more technically correct way to display that information.  Does RAM speed matter? Yes. RAM speed is actually very important in a lot of situations. For basic everyday use like web browsing, emails, or word documents, speed won’t have much of an impact. But if you’re building a gaming PC or doing any other memory-intensive work, RAM speed can have a big effect on performance. Remember, RAM is a quick-access point for data your CPU needs to use, so if your RAM is slow, that data will be accessed slowly.  In games, particularly ones that are CPU intensive, performance differences can be quite pronounced when going from slow to high-speed memory.  What is XMP? XMP stands for “Extreme Memory Profile.” It’s a tool in your motherboard’s BIOS that allows you to run memory at its “full” speed.  Your motherboard will automatically scale down your memory speed to a default setting. DDR4 usually goes down to 2133. This is done because, even though a manufacturer will advertise RAM at a certain speed, your unique combination of motherboard and CPU could still cause stability issues with RAM. Enabling XMP on one board may work just fine, but use that same RAM on a different board and it may not boot with XMP turned on.  To get the RAM speeds as advertised, you need to enable that setting in your motherboard’s BIOS. Intel boards call it XMP; AMD boards will call it something else like aXMP or DOCP. Check your motherboard manual to be sure.  What are memory channels? You may see kits labeled as single-channel, dual-channel, and quad-channel. These kits will come with one, two, or four DIMMs, or sticks of RAM, respectively. Memory channels are actually a feature on your motherboard, not the memory itself. Each DIMM has a certain amount of bandwidth available to send data through. More channels add more bandwidth, and in certain situations, this can lead to better performance (more on that later). DIMM slots and memory channels are separate things, though they do go hand in hand. A motherboard may have four DIMM slots but only two memory channels. How do I make sure my RAM is compatible? First, you need to match the RAM socket to the kind of motherboard you have. If your motherboard has DDR4 memory slots, get DDR4 memory. As DIMM slots are not backward compatible, you can’t use a DDR3 RAM kit with a DDR4 board. Second, every motherboard has a QVL (qualified vendor list) of memory kits that have been tested and confirmed to be compatible. These lists should be available on your motherboard’s support page on the manufacturer’s website. If you can, it’s best to try and stick to memory on that list to ensure you won’t run into a compatibility issue. If the RAM isn’t on the QVL, it may not work. One last thing when it comes to compatibility: when putting RAM in your system, we always recommend using exactly the same models if possible. Even if two kits are advertised at the same clock speed, e.g., DDR4-3200, there are other differences that can cause issues. Mismatching RAM can potentially lead to instability, losing performance, or your system not booting.  What kind of RAM should I get? There’s no single answer to this question. Most memory will work perfectly fine, it’s just a matter of how much you want and what kind of speeds you need. There are some things we should cover to help point you in the right direction, though: How much memory do I need? One misconception some people may have is that more memory means your system will be faster, which isn’t really true. While it is true that when your RAM is maxed out, the computer starts placing some of that burden onto the disk (SSD or hard drive) in your system. This can have huge performance impacts because disks are MUCH slower than memory. Even if you have the fastest SSD in the world, if any resources that would normally be handled by RAM are swapped onto the disk they will be handled far slower. However, the flip side is that any RAM beyond what you will regularly need is mostly pointless. Your daily processes only require so much RAM and, while it’s not a bad idea to go a little above and beyond for intense use situations, going overboard with RAM is just spending extra money for memory you’ll likely never use. 8GB of RAM is our minimum recommendation for general use, i.e., basic web browsing, email, and office work. With how RAM-hungry browsers these days can be (looking at you, Google Chrome), less than 8GB may not fulfill your daily use needs. If you’re a gamer, 16GB of RAM is our recommendation. It leaves you enough wiggle room to run most games as well as additional software, such as internet browsers, simultaneously. While gamers could get by with 8GB of RAM, you’ll have to be careful about running any other applications. A number of games require 8GB of RAM as a baseline to run. If you’re not a gamer but are a heavy PC user in general, 16GB of RAM is still a good number to go with.  More than 16GB is overkill for most people, but in memory-intensive applications, such as high-resolution video and photo editing, high amounts of RAM can be useful.  What memory speed should I get? The general standard for a modern system is DDR4-3200. It hits the sweet spot in terms of performance vs. price.  AMD Ryzen based systems scale well up to DDR4-3600. The difference between 3200 and 3600 isn’t massive, but there are benefits. Past 3600, you generally get diminishing returns and have to be careful with how you tune your memory (a whole separate discussion).  For Intel systems, past 3200 is where you’ll start to see diminishing returns. Also, remember that if you’re going with a more budget-focused Intel PC build and have a B or H chipset, those boards limit RAM speed depending on your processor. So, for example, if you have a B460 board with an i5-10400, getting more than DDR4-2666 would be pointless. Single vs. Dual vs. Quad Channel memory As mentioned earlier, you’ll see memory kits labeled single-, dual- or quad-channel, but memory channels are actually handled by your motherboard. Most modern motherboards will support dual-channel memory. High-end boards may support quad-channel memory.  More channels mean more bandwidth for data to pass through. In some situations, it won’t matter. In other situations, it can actually have a very large effect on performance. Some video games, for example, can see very large performance games from dual-channel vs. single-channel memory. With how RAM is currently priced, you don’t really pay extra for having one DIMM vs. two and can get performance benefits from it, so there’s really no reason not to go with a dual-channel configuration.  Quad-channel will only make a difference in certain very memory-intensive professional applications; the average user or gamer will probably not benefit from it.  With all that in mind... What memory kits should I buy?  There’s no one specific memory kit that you should purchase. There are many solid brands out there that make quality memory, so you should instead focus on capacity, speed, and price. If you’re interested in RGB RAM, there are plenty of good kits out there as well, but you’ll pay extra for the RGB lighting.  G.Skill, Crucial, and Corsair are all reliable brands that you can’t really go wrong with, and I’ll throw out some recommendations for a few different kits. As always, check your motherboard’s QVL list if you’re not sure about compatibility. G.Skill Ripjaw V DDR4-3200 8GB (2 x 4GB)  Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 16GB (2 x 8GB) G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3600 16GB (2 x 8GB) Crucial Ballistix Gaming DDR4-3600 16GB (2 x 8GB) G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4-3600 32GB (2 x 16GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3200 32GB (2 x 16GB)   If you have follow-up questions, feel free to comment below, and if you’re still looking for part recommendations, we have guides for Processors, Motherboards, Graphics Cards, Power Supplies, Hard Drives, and Cases. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

It's part number is PowerSpec PS 650GFM. I know I can purchase the same model power supply but I would like to upgrade the power supply and purchase one with a higher output power, 750 Watts or more, preferably 1000 Watts. The problem I am having is I cannot find one with a 24 pin plug for the motherboard. Everything I am seeing has multiple smaller connectors. Any recommendations for an upgrade? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 2021 Hello @nga_tom Welcome to the community! I believe that all of the power supplies that we currently carry have a 24-pin connector. I'd recommend the EVGA GQ 1000 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply if you're looking for 1000W If you're interested in the 850W, I'd suggest the Corsair RM850 850 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about these! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.3K All Categories 1.1K The Blog 41 What's Trending 170 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 17 3D Printers 12 Maker 20 PC Build Guides 100 Reviews & Buying Guides 39 Build Showcase 21 Contests 42 Past Contests 1.2K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 95 New Members 169 Consumer Tech 50 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 87 Software 4 Audio/Visual 17 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 60 Retro Arcade/Gaming 87 All Other Tech 1.4K Store Information and Policy 56 Off Topic 8 Community Ideas & Feedback 115 Your Completed Builds 2.8K Build-Your-Own PC 1.8K Help Choosing Parts 243 Graphics Cards 183 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 64 Cases and Power Supplies 20 Air and Liquid Cooling 17 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 13 All Other Parts 25 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
