Community Article [QUESTION] regarding the Atari 32GB Micro SD Retropie image — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Consumer Tech › Retro Arcade/Gaming [QUESTION] regarding the Atari 32GB Micro SD Retropie image Draugr ✭ February 17 in Retro Arcade/Gaming https://www.microcenter.com/product/627545/atari-32gb-micro-sd Hi. I wanted to ask if anyone can confirm if I can add additional Atari 2600/5200/7800 games to this card or am I stuck with the games that come pre-installed? Also, is it possible to copy the built in Atari theme and use it on a different MicroSD card with a fresh Retropie installation so that I could add additional roms/games to the system? I'm asking this in case you can't add more games to the official image that comes with the Atari 32GB MicroSD image. I've been wanting to make an Atari Retropie image with all my 2600/5200/7800 games, but the themes I've found so far just don't feel right to me. The new MC theme screenshots I saw look basic, but capture that feel of the basic graphics and looks of the old Atari systems or the games on those systems. I really want to use that theme. :) Any info is appreciated. Thanks, John 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments NickBiederman admin February 17 @Draugr Yes, you can add additional games using the methods found here. Our image is built on the standard version of RetroPie but has some configuration files for our most popular controllers, ROMs for our licensed games, and our new theme. If you want to use a raw installation of RetroPie you can extract the mc theme after installing the image. I think it's stored in /home/pi/.emulationstation/themes/mc, but it's been a while since I made the theme and I don't have a pi set up to check right now. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Draugr ✭ February 17 On my way right now to pick it up at my local MC. Thanks for the info. I'm excited to get back to building my Atari Pi image. :) 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ninja502 ky ✭ February 19 i ssh into mine and added many more roms and systems like @NickBiederman stated its a standard retropie image with there theme's added 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Can I take it back to Microcenter to have the right processor (3900X 12 core 3.8 Ghz) and memory (32 GB DDR4-3200) installed into the PC, as it was advertised?  Do I have to take it back to the same Microcenter?  (I'd prefer to take it back to the Microcenter in Brooklyn NY, which is much more convenient for me). Thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 Hello @jr_11209! Welcome to the Community.  Sorry for the delayed response, but from your email address it looks like you brought the computer back for an exchange for a new G464 model. Can you confirm that's the case and that everything is good with the new system? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook jr_11209 ✭ July 2020 Sorry for the delay in responding.  I did bring back the open box PC I originally got and exchanged it for a new G464 model.  I have been using the new G464 for about a month.  So far, it has performed very well.  A couple of minor issues: - I just noticed a few days ago that the rear side panel of the case (the panel of the case that is right behind the motherboard - NOT the panel that includes the see-through) is misaligned.  It is popping out along the bottom at the point where it meets the front of the case.  I will have to remove it and reconnect it to see if I can get it to more smoothly align. - The inside does seem to run a little hot - I may increase the fan speeds a bit. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin July 2020 Glad the new system is working out for you. Let us know if you have any other questions and we'd be happy to help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

After looking this up, one of the possible reasons I found was bad memory. After testing this I found that pulling two of the memory sticks would allow a normal startup, but running with just these two - either together or one at a time - would cause the bsod. I no longer have the original packaging or the paper receipt, but looking at my account online I found them listed on a purchase from 7/28/2019. I know that these have a lifetime warranty, can I just bring them to the store for a replacement or do I need to go through the manufactuer (G.Skill)? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin November 2020 Hello @jjh76 Welcome to the community! Sorry to hear that you're having difficulty with your memory.

I have already purchased my MOBO + RAM Motherboard: ASuS RoG Strix x570-E Gaming RAM = G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3600 (4x8gb 32gb kit) CL19 I'm looking at the Ryzen 7 3700x for my CPU. Will these parts be compatible together out of the box? This is the first time I've built a computer on my own, I do not feel safe flashing the BIOS because I don't want to brick the system. If the RAM runs a little slower than 32gb or whatever with plug & play, I'm fine with that, I just want it to run (weird, sure). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 22 Yes, these will be compatible with each other. No BIOS flash should be necessary with these parts. If anything would need to be changed for your system it would be to ensure that XMP settings are enabled in the UEFI of your motherboard's settings.

PotterPlays ✭ June 2020 edited June 2020 in Help Choosing Parts Hello Microcenter community! I will be building a new P.C. with the following motherboard. Gigabyte - Z490 AORUS Master Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard. I wanted to know if the following memory is compatible with this board? G.Skill - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL18 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-360018D-64GTZR - Black 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answers TSMichaelB admin June 2020 Accepted Answer Welcome to the forum, @PotterPlays. According to G Skill's QVL list for your memory, it would appear that they've validated the memory on the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS Master motherboard: https://www.gskill.com/qvl/165/166/1582537336/F4-3600C18D-64GTZR-Qvl. Keep in mind that while they were able to use that memory in their testing, this won't always be the case for everyone using that board/memory combo. The memory controller of your processor must also support the memory, and since you are going above Intel's recommended memory speed of 2966mhz, it's basically a toss of the dice to see if your CPU is capable of handling that speed. Overclocking in general is no guarantee, and these XMP profiles are considered overclocking in a sense.  If you have any further questions, let us know! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin June 2020 Accepted Answer 64GB would be beyond overkill for gaming and editing/recording, especially when paired with consumer grade processors. You'd see far more of a performance uplift with settling for 32GB of RAM and spending the extra budget on a faster CPU (software acceleration) or GPU (hardware acceleration). With that said, the 2x16GB kit (x2 for 64GB) will work just fine should you still decide to go that route. Keep in mind that you can always use 32GB for now and add more RAM in the future if you determine that you are running out of memory for your tasks. 5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers PotterPlays ✭ June 2020 Awesome feedback TS!

(Love the profile picture too! I'm currently going with the 10th gen Intel 17-10700k processor. Thanks! I think the 10700k's memory controller will be strong enough to handle 3600mhz with 2 DIMM's, but be mindful that it may take some extra tweaking to get it to work if it is unstable. I also wouldn't attempt to push 4x32GB at 3600mhz if you planned to upgrade in the future.  If you do decide to give that memory a try and run into any issues, let me know. I'll gladly help with finding a stable combination of timings if you're comfortable with making the adjustments. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PotterPlays ✭ June 2020 So my main goal would be gaming, streaming.

They'd be able to provide the best recommendations and walk you through your build while in the store. However, with a budget of 4500, you should be set for any build you can think of. I'd recommend an 850 Watt PSU, an M.2 SSD, and a 240mm AIO unless you'd like to go with a custom loop. https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966654+795&Ntt=&prt=&sku_list=&Ntx=&Ntk=all&Nr= https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294945779+4294809042&Ntt=&prt=&sku_list=&Ntx=&Ntk=all&Nr= https://www.microcenter.com/category/4294966904/water-cooling-kits Hope this helps. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

That the ram loses a bit of speed due to the difference is something that does not affect me to much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments MageTank ✭ June 14 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/8734/different-ram-modules-in-the-same-system What you are trying to do could potentially work, but there are some things to consider and be careful of: Mixing memory DRAM IC's (Samsung, Hynix, Micron) can result in instability. These different IC's have different tolerances to certain frequencies, voltages & timing configurations and trying to mix them can cause your memory controller to train a value that results in instability. I don't have a guide written on how to identify memory IC's, but I can write one up later on today to go over this. From my initial glance at both kits, both appear to be Hynix CJR/DJR so you should be fine here. The order in which you populate the DIMM slots on the motherboard is very important. You will want to match the memory channels with the same memory modules to avoid running in Flex Channel Mode, which would be harder on the memory controller. More information on this can be found here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005657/boards-and-kits.html The difference in primary timings on the 64GB kit should be noted as you'll want to ensure the 32GB kit can operate at those timings as well. The goal will be to slow down the 32GB kit to match the speed of the 64GB kit and hope the board trains the tertiary timings despite the differences in ranks/banks on the DIMM's themselves. The short answer is, you'll have to roll the dice to see if it actually works, as the end result will depend entirely on whether your motherboard and CPU can agree upon a timing configuration to make it work. If it doesn't, I don't mind walking you through manually entering timings to get it to work, assuming you are comfortable making those adjustments. With all of that said, I do have to ask; are you doing something memory intensive that would require more than 64GB of memory? Or do you simply not want to waste the current memory installed? If it were me, I'd simply go with the 64GB of memory and overclock that for faster performance instead of trying to make 96GB work. You'd have the spare 32GB kit as a backup test kit or as a spare kit for another system if you ever needed it. Just my two cents. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Brencis ✭ June 14 edited June 14 @MageTank I am creating an Ark Survival server (it is a game I do not know if you know it) basically I will open 10 servers of these which consume 1-6 GB of RAM each one 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

RAM is a relatively cheap, easy component to upgrade. Better to put that into a the CPU or GPU at this point and worry about upgrading the RAM down the road.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ocooyy ✭ July 2020 Thanks again, what would be a good 32GB one? I will track it for any price drops 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin July 2020 It would be worthwhile to expand your budget a little bit and go for 32GB out of the gate. You'll add another $80 or so to the build. Just get the 32GB version of the same kit. DDR4-3600, CL16. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

The main thing being the CPU. Intel still holds the edge over AMD in gaming scenarios so we can easily switch in something like an i5-10600k and make an improvement there. You also don't need to spend that much on a motherboard unless it has specific features you're looking for. 32GB of RAM is overkill, 16GB is plenty for gaming and you don't really need an 850W PSU unless you're running a dual GPU system. Other changes to make would be either switching out the case or the CPU cooler, since the H510i doesn't support 360mm radiators. With all those changes, we can potentially stretch all the way up to an RTX 2080 Super for your video card while staying near the budget you set.  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=fc117230-59b1-4f7c-91fd-d1ca3e9ac9b8 This comes out only about $70 more expensive than the build you posted but in return you get some pretty significant gains in gaming performance.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Mammth ✭ August 2020 I am new to building so thank you for helping me but maybe you can help me a little more??  I have only been doing research on AMD so I know nothing about Intel.  I have a few questions and a few different recommendations to help you help me choose my build lol.  Ok so we switch to i5, my mother board can we change because I would like to have wifi built in?

Corsair's iCUE.  I do know the 220T is a bit smaller and the 465X is a bit pricier.   1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Mammth said: I am new to building so thank you for helping me but maybe you can help me a little more??  I have only been doing research on AMD so I know nothing about Intel.  I have a few questions and a few different recommendations to help you help me choose my build lol.  Ok so we switch to i5, my mother board can we change because I would like to have wifi built in?

Is it a bad thing having more power for the future upgrades just in case?  Help me pick a case and new cpu cooler because I want the desktop to match and look good lol.  I am not too worried about price but what else would I need for protection software for the desktop also is that the correct windows 10 and is the 2TB SSD an ok choice because again i am also thinking about the future I want this computer to last me a long time with minimal upgrades?  Again thank you for helping me do you work at microcenter?  Mammth said: Would it be beneficial to switch to i7?  Also is it ok to go overkill on 32GB of ram since the price is not that much more?  I am ok with being a little overkill I just want to be prepared for what ever I want to do with my pc in the future. Yes, I do work for Micro Center. All the members on the forum that are Admins or Moderators are Micro Center employees.  Obviously we don't know what performance will look like in games 5 years from now. Now that consoles are moving to 8-core/16 thread processors we may finally see games truly being able to utilize multi-core performance, in which case the i7 would be more "future proof." Or we may not and you'll just have needlessly spent more on a CPU you can't fully utilize. The same goes for any other components. 32GB of RAM may be a requirement in the future, but it's unlikely to be anytime soon considering that even now 8GB is enough to game on provided you're not running a whole bunch of other stuff at the same time. GPUs may have higher power draw in the future, but we may see them become more efficient instead. We just don't know what we don't know.  Of course, if you're planning on using the system for other things besides gaming that are more RAM or CPU heavy at some point, you'll want that extra overhead. I'm basing this on the idea that this is only a gaming/general use PC, and not for something else like video editing, 3D rendering, code compiling, etc... It's your build and you should put together something that you can be satisfied with, there's nothing wrong with "future-proofing" or going a little overboard.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Mammth ✭ August 2020 Ok so now we know a build that is over kill, can you guys pick out another full build with wifi and looks dont matter including the software and protection where i can just play games around 1500$ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin August 2020 Greetings @Mammth https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=445251e8-1376-4946-a906-bf25c7bd8bea Reconfigured your original build a little bit. Drop the board down to an ASUS TUF X570 with WIFI. The CPU to a Ryzen 5 3600 and kept the GPU. Also removed the liquid cooler. If you're not overclocking, you don't need it.

If you pull up the product page for the RAM I linked: https://www.gskill.com/product/165/326/1562840211/F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC it does state it's optimized for the Ryzen 3000 and X570 platform. The real difference is what SPD profile are flashed on the RAM out of the factory for that platform and what G.Skill has tested. This RAM will work well for you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook fjsdhf_fdshjkf2003 ✭ September 2020 @TSMikeW I'm building with 5 3600xt and ROG B450 f gaming.

I don't see the exact part number listed on that site, in our inventory. In my pinion you'd be fine with any of the 3200 CL16 Trident Z kits we carry.

I'd recommend the change that @ninja502 did regarding your SSD. What kind of budget did you have in mind for this build? Also, did you have a monitor in mind for pairing with this build? I noticed you selected the diffused LED strip for the Lancool II. It is specifically designed for the Lancool II and would take some work to make it fit with the NZXT case you've selected. I'd recommend changing the case or selecting another LED strip. Once we know a bit more about your budget and monitor pairing, I'd be happy to discuss it further! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

I've violated these sorts of recommendations before, and the system usually works fine anyway.  But not always.  So it would be nice to know ahead of time if this is a bad idea. Also looking to upgrade my video card.  But that seems more straightforward. FYI, my local Microcenters are Parkville, MD and Rockville, MD. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 5 Hello @MortyA I can't say that I'd recommend mismatching speeds, however, should you add a higher speed RAM set to your system, it will typically downclock to match the lowest speed in the system. The system will always be capped to the lowest RAM clock in the system. However, if they all match in speed and timings, you'll typically have better performance. Mismatched RAM can lead to other system errors that would harm the performance of your system. In some cases causing your system to crash or hard reset. You're mostly correct about the GPU! Just make sure that you've uninstalled the old GPU drivers before you add the new card. A fresh GPU install with cleanly installed drivers is always recommended. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

In regards to the build, you can definitely get this under 3k if you are fine with purchasing parts later, things like your RAM or SSDs.  You can start with 32GB and then add the additional 32GB later, same with the storage.   For your cooler, I highly recommend switching away from the Low-Profile Noctua cooler for another cooling solution, as this cooler is a specialized cooler for more cramped ITX builds.  Coolers I would recommend would be  Budget: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Air Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S  All-in-One Liquid Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB Pro Xt 240mm Water Cooling Kit With the All-in-One, you don't need to get those additional fans.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook RookBishopCheck ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 Thank you! Ya I loove chess, especially after watching queens gambit I got back into it.   Ya youre right, I should just half the storage and ram, build it more slowly.  Is it easy to handle watercooled pcs? I dont know much about it other than pooring a liquid in there, how often does that need to be changed/flushed? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin November 2020 @RookBishopCheck The thing with All-In-One Liquid Cooler is that it's the simplest version of a water cooling loop.  It's all setup and just need to be installed, no maintenance, no filling/refilling!  All you need to do is install the radiator, the fans to the radiator and the CPU Cooler and connect a few wires and it is set to go!   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook RookBishopCheck ✭ November 2020 Sweet!

CPU : Ryzen 3700x Mobo : x570 or b550 GPU : RTX 3070 Ram : 32gbs ddr4-3200 G.Skill Ripjaw 2x16 Power Supply : 650w 80gold power supply (awaiting availability on these too, probably corsair or thermaltake) Storage : m.2 nvme 3d NAND wd750   1tb  / barracuda 2tb hdd Case : Insert cool case with rgbs (she loves rgb) 27" 1440p 144hz 1ms monitor for gaming 22" 1080p 144hz 1ms monitor for her 2nd monitor. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 Hello @JustAHusband07! Welcome to the Community.  Speaking from experience, that would be a solid system overall. I have a 3700X and an RTX 2080 Super, and it handles streaming like a breeze. 32GB of RAM is pretty overkill though, 16GB would be plenty if the most intense thing you're doing is streaming, so I'd recommend saving some cost there. I think you'll be very happy with that setup and it should last you quite a while.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JustAHusband07 ✭ May 2020 Ok cool.  @TSTonyV thank you for the insight. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheITDad ✭✭ May 2020 And if your looking for a cool RGB case the Corsair iCUE 220T comes in white and black and comes with some RGB fans and also doesn't break the bank at 110 bucks and occasionally goes on sale for under 100.  And yeah 32gb of ram is pretty overkill unless she plans to start making videos as well for youtube or the like. But a nice 16gb kit at 2x8 would work and can easily be upgrade to 32 at 4x8 in the future by buying a second kit.  And latest "rumors" are that both AMD and Nvidia are launching their cards in september.  So this might be a good Black Friday build for this coming year. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JustAHusband07 ✭ May 2020 @TheITDad Yeah idk about case.  I am letting her pick it out.  I personally dont care too much for the RGB stuff myself, but she wants something to marvel at and take pictures of, for her stream to ogle over I guess.  (Atleast she doesn't want diamonds).  Black Friday / Prime Day was what I was figuring for purchasing everything.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Wormstore ✭ May 2020 I don’t think 32gb ram is necessarily overkill. It depends on what games your streaming.  Triple A titles can be pretty memory intensive. That said, if you stream e-sports games and stream at 1080p, you should be good. Thankfully, prices are still reasonable, so starting with an 2x8 kit is fine. If you need the memory, you can step it up down the road.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.
