Does this PC from Microcenter have liquid cooling? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments DreadPirateRoberts ✭ July 2020 What PC are you referring to?

I think you're right. Based on Dell's specs and requirements for the prebuilt I'd assume they don't ship it without an AIO cooler.  As compact as this case is, I think you're probably better off with an AIO. Is there a specific reason you don't want it liquid cooled?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 well it will be my first gaming pc and I’ve heard liquid cooled PCs require a lot of maintenance and was advised against it since it could damage my components if it broke. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 DreadPirateRoberts said: @dpt Hmm.

Liquid cooling requires a lot of extra maintenance if you're building a custom open-loop. For a pre-built with a closed-loop AIO like this, there isn't really any extra maintenance you'd have to do.  If we want to be technical, yes, if the water cooler starts leaking you run the risk of damaging your other components, and since you're dealing with both a pump and fans there's technically more points of failure. However, failures like that are pretty rare and I don't think your overall risk on the system is much higher than it would be with an air cooler.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 TSTonyV said: dpt said: well it will be my first gaming pc and I’ve heard liquid cooled PCs require a lot of maintenance and was advised against it since it could damage my components if it broke.

I was expecting a high end alienware keyboard and mouse to come with it. It was just an ordinary Dell Mouse and keyboard but overall I love the PC. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

I believe it's from 2011. I want to upgrade the cpu to something newer. It has a 1st Gen core i7 and ddr3. I have a sata ssd and a 2060 KO ultra gpu. What kind of upgrade can I expect with about a $600 budget. I know it's not a lot of money but that's what I have to spend. Don't care if it's amd or Intel. I'm sure I'm going to have to buy a mobo, ram and cpu and possibly a psu. I think the current mobo is microatx. Can I swap out those 4 items for this budget and get a decent gaming setup without changing the case?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSPhillipT admin October 2020 Hello @Onegomoo Here is what I made using an mATX motherboard, a 3700X, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 750W Power Supply, all within 600$.  You can definitely change these parts out as well for cheaper variants as well, especially the motherboard; https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=8d707865-98ac-4460-a602-62ea38949fa6  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

I am afraid. I may break it if maintenance is required on the cooling system. Is this pc liquid cooled? https://www.microcenter.com/product/613824/powerspec-g464-gaming-computer This is another one I was looking at which I believe is liquid cooled. My other option I guess to to have one built. They just don’t have all the components available at the micro center near me. https://www.microcenter.com/product/624234/dell-alienware-aurora-r10-gaming-computer 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin July 2020 The Powerspec system is liquid cooled, but it's an AIO system. AIO water cooling systems are closed loop systems. You'll never do any maintenance or have to refill it at all. Basically you'll just run it until the pump dies and replace it at that point, which should be several years down the road or longer. It's a simple solution even if you're building on your own. You attach the water block just like any after market air cooler and mount the radiator like case fans essentially. We can certainly do a custom build for you and we do custom water cooling loops as well. Custom loops are different, as they are assembled, filled and leak tested. They do have to be drained, cleaned and refilled from time to time. Custom water cooling loops do offer far greater performance, the pumps you'll find, either the D5 or DDC have considerably higher flow rates than what you'll find in AIO's. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 TSMikeW said: The Powerspec system is liquid cooled, but it's an AIO system.

I run a small real estate business off of it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSTonyV admin June 2020 Yes, you can re-use your monitors if you were to get a new computer.  As for your Alienware, do you have the model number or do you know the specs for the system? Even if Windows 10 isn't officially supported by Dell on it, you may still be able to install it and have it work, there could just be potential compatibility issues.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Thanks for any and all help in this quest. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin March 11 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7870/need-help-choosing-parts-for-a-pc Greetings, we can look into this with you. Do you need any peripherals and do you need Windows included in your budget? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Heaven ✭ March 12 I’m sorry I’m new to this whole thing. What would you mean by peripherals and windows not included. Also I have a alianware aurura r6 with a i5 I would like to increase the power and make it stronger to run 4K. What would you recommend me adding to it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 12 @Heaven just chiming in. Peripherals are items like your keyboard, mouse, external HDD, etc., but it sounds like you already have these with the Alienware r6. I'd say stick with the processor you already have in the Alienware, but maybe update your GPU to a GTX 1660 or better a RTX 2060. I believe you R6 should have 16gb of ram, you may want to upgrade the ram to 24-32gb, not needed but could help (see ram link below). Last you'll probably need to upgrade your Power Supply to 550watts.

But I’ll check the others out.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 12 @Heaven that R6 probably has an I5-7400 (7th gen chip), which is a 4 core processor. Can do up to 3.5 ghz speeds which is fast for cpu chips still to this day. You good look at a I9-9900K or i5-9600K. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Heaven ✭ March 12 @TSTDavey yes it’s a i5 but I was playing valhiem and was getting 15-19 FPS not sure why.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 12 @Heaven its doesn't require much to play Valhiem. Has your Alienware R6 drivers been updated lately? What video cable are you using, HDMI or displayport? What monitor do you have? All these things play a part into why your FPS are low.

I was going to buy the Alienware aurora R11 PC through dell, but it would not ship until august 6th. I have a list of parts from the specific PC I was going to buy, and was wondering if I came into a micro center store, would an employee be able to build it for me. If so, how long would that take? If the store does not have all the parts I would need, would an employee be able to replace that part with a different but just as good part? Would it be easier just to come into the store and give a certain price range and certain games that I would like to be able to run smoothly, and then have an employee select parts and build the PC that meets the criteria?  Thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 We do offer custom build services, you can find more details and pricing for those services on our website here: https://www.microcenter.com/site/service/instore-service-complete-build.aspx Turnaround time for a build will vary depending on your local store. Sometimes it's doable same-day, other times it could take a few days. Just depends on how busy the service desk is. If we don't have a particular part available, we would look for something equivalent/comparable.  If you give us a certain price range we can definitely work with you to put something together that will give you the best value at that price. If you want to take inspiration or get something similar to that Alienware, that's perfectly fine as well. As long as you give us a good idea of what you want, we'll put something together that works. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

It stands for Network Address Translation. To make it simple, it is what allows your router to use 1 'public' IP address for all the devices on your home network by translating it to a number of 'private' addresses. Of course, this can interfere with some services or games as you are experiencing now. This can be resolved by modifying either the UPnP (Universal Plug n Play) setting or by port forwarding the necessary ports for Destiny 2. You will either need to enable UPnP or enable port forwarding for the ports this game uses, but not both. This would require you to access your router and make some changes. We have a guide that can explain how to access your router here. I recommend looking at this site here. It explains the different NAT types and how you can get yours to the correct one. You also will want to look at this link here. It shows what port numbers you will need to forward on the router for Destiny 2. If you can tell me the exact model number of your router is, I can find you a copy of the manual and explain where these settings can be found.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Rusher ✭ June 2020 my router is the netgear XR450 @TS_JosephF 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin June 2020 Netgear has a good guide on how to enable UPnP and allow all the ports for the XBOX Live service here: https://kb.netgear.com/19844/Why-does-my-Xbox-say-NAT-is-set-to-strict-or-moderate-when-I-try-to-play-online 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Extinct ✭ January 2020 in Help Choosing Parts Hello everyone So i want you all to know that i'm here to get info about pc parts for the computer i have in regards to whats compatible or not with it. I have a Alien Aurora R9. I bought it stock with the exception of 2 custom upgrades i improved on it which is the power supply (Alienware™ 850 Watt Multi-GPU Approved Power Supply) and the improved wifi/bluetooth the rest is stock. Stock wise i have an Intel 9th gen i5 - 9400 processor @ 2.90 GHz (6-Core, 9MB Cache, up to 4.1GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology), Nvidia GeForce GTX® 1650 4GB GDDR5, 8GB HyperX™ FURY DDR4 XMP at 2666MHz, Hard drive - 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s, And as for the Motherboard class well i'm not sure if these both are the same or seperate classes of the motherboard (Micro ATX motherboard Intel® Z370 Express Chipset) but if seperate i have the default ATX version. Which is about it for my set up thus far. I have a few screenshots i will post here and i want y'all to tell me if any of these parts are compatible with my desktop. Also please let me know if you can use other parts that may not have to be specific to its brand or whatever for example if i wanted to use a WD Black or Aoras SSD's instead of hyper x or like using Corsair Vengeance & G.Skill Ripjaws memory instead of the default one I have and ect... Thanks in advanced to those who can provide some feedback. P.S If you all can tell or guess I obviously fell back to noob status lightweight after many years 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Extinct ✭ January 2020 Excuse that one typo. it could throw some people off. AlienWare Aurora R9. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin January 2020 Welcome to the forums Extinct. As far as storage support goes, your chassis supports any 2.5 inch SSD's, 3.5 inch HDD's and any SATA/PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD's up to 2280. Your choice of hard drives and SSD's are fine, just remember that you only have a single M.2 SSD slot. You can also go with Corsair or G Skill memory, or basically any memory on the market, just be mindful of pushing the speeds too high. Some boards may not support memory that is too fast. My only real concern with your choice in parts is the graphics card. It's length is roughly 11 inches, which might fit a little snug. You may want to measure the inside of the case to make sure it can accommodate an 11 inch graphics card. If it can't, there are plenty of 10.5 inch cards on the market that will fit just fine. I think it will work, but it's always a good idea to measure beforehand to make sure. Overall, I think your choice in upgrades are perfect and should help you get the most out of that system.

I thought about going with alienware but has bad reviews and I like the see through cases and maybe a watercooled system. With anything RBG enabled. My budget - $1500 - $2,000 with monitor Need a build for Using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Adobe Preimer Rush. Also want to be able to play and stream games on switch. Looking at the AMD 900X. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin July 2020 This is my first shot at the build, minus the cooling and a monitor: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=468d10d1-3252-43bb-be6d-1b387aa83b74 I'd look over that first. Photoshop relies pretty heavy on the GPU, so you want to strike a good balance between your CPU and GPU. This is also a gaming system, it'll handle anything you can throw at it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

The link below is the parts I picked and I need someone to let me know what needs to be changed thanks. I'm willing to go upto 1500 dollars of necessary however the lower the better.  Thanks, https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=872fa390-f161-4725-b3d6-13070f4529ee 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments joe ✭ February 2020 I have aleinware 240hz no gsync  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin February 2020 Welcome to the forum, Joe! This looks like a very solid setup. I would recommend additional storage as 250GB can be quite small, especially when you have games like Modern Warfare and Red Dead Redemption 2 taking up over 100GB each. I would recommend adding a large HDD for your gaming library at the very least, or go with a larger SSD overall. Be mindful that your choice in motherboard may require a BIOS update to work with the 3700X. By now, most of our B450 boards should have their latest BIOS updates for the Ryzen 3000 series, but it would be safe to know ahead of time that there is a rare chance that it may require an update. Also keep in mind that the B450 boards do not support PCIe 4.0, so if you require that feature in the future, you may need to upgrade to an X570 board. Lastly, your 240hz Alienware monitor might support FreeSync. If so, you can follow this guide to enable G-Sync compatible mode to utilize your Variable Refresh tech: https://www.microcenter.com/tech_center/article/10968/how-to-enable-nvidia-g-sync-compatible-mode. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, Joe!

Hello Michael, so do you recommend me buying the x570 board ? And also will the x570 also require a bios update? Thanks so much for your help. X570 boards do not require a BIOS update and will work natively with AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors. As for a specific board that I would recommend, I am a fan of the Gigabyte Aorus Elite WiFi board: https://www.microcenter.com/product/611269/gigabyte-aorus-elite-wifi-x570-amd-am4-atx-motherboard. This board has a very overkill VRM power delivery that is well cooled and designed with long term durability in mind. It also has a ton of features such as WiFi/Bluetooth, dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots (both of which support NVMe RAID), integrated RGB controller and overclocking if you are in to that sort of thing. It's definitely more expensive than the B450 options, but would definitely last much longer from a feature/design perspective. Keep in mind that if you do want to go with the B450 boards, we offer BIOS update services in-store in the event that you have an issue. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSMichaelB said: joe said: TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, Joe!

As for how you can tell, you can look for this sticker on the box: Almost all of our B450 inventory should have these by now, but I wanted to make sure you knew before you made your purchase in the event that there was an issue with the BIOS. As for the pricing of BIOS updates, I believe that service starts at $29.99. Either way, if you look for that sticker above, you'll be fine with your board selection.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 That board should be a solid B450 option overall, keep in mind that it doesn't have wifi built in so you'll need to purchase an adapter if you don't plan to use ethernet. Most all 400-series boards at this point should have the 3000-series compatible BIOS installed, these will be designated by a label/sticker on the box stating they're "AMD Ryzen 3000 Desktop Ready." BIOS updates are $29.99 at our service desk if you do need to update the BIOS.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSMichaelB said: joe said: TSMichaelB said: joe said: TSMichaelB said: Welcome to the forum, Joe!

Thanks so much for the help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 The Wraith Prism that comes with the 3700x is a very good stock cooler and can even support some light overclocking if that's something you're interested in. I would only replace it if you plan to upgrade your cooling quite a bit if you do plan to push it on overclocking. Otherwise the Prism should work very well.  The differences between each respective card in a line are very small, typically only a few percent. If it's within your budget there's nothing wrong with having that little bit of extra, but a 2070 Super is still a 2070 Super so that card should perform. The H510 is fine as a budget friendly case, and it looks pretty sleek. It should work well. It's not as well ventilated as some other cases but you'd probably have to bump your price up a bit if you are looking for cases that have a significant improvement in airflow.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSTonyV said: The Wraith Prism that comes with the 3700x is a very good stock cooler and can even support some light overclocking if that's something you're interested in.

Thanks 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 The Lian-Li PC-O11 Dynamic is a very popular and highly reviewed case, which a lot of room and features . The Fractal Design Meshify C would be another solid option if you want be a little more budget friendly. Keep in mind that for both those cases and the H510, you'll need to purchase some extra case fans if you want to fill out all the fan slots. The PC-O11 is probably the one I'd personally recommend, I think it incorporates the best of everything: good space, features, airflow capability and I think it looks pretty cool too. You can even get it in white if that strikes your fancy.  The Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC 3X is probably what I'd jump up to for video cards. It has a similar clock speeds as the other overclocked cards but doesn't quite cost as much some like the EVGA 2070 Super FTW3. Again this is all considering budget. Most of these "improvements" are just nice-to-haves or slight bumps at most, not requirements by any means. If you can save a bit on case/card and put that into a better monitor, for example, that'd probably be a more worthwhile investment. But of course, choose what you like the most! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSTonyV said: The Lian-Li PC-O11 Dynamic is a very popular and highly reviewed case, which a lot of room and features .

So for the PC-O11 I will not need to buy more fans correct? Also I do have an aleinware 240hz monitor.

What is a good case that comes with fans because i dont want to buy extra fans Hmmm, it looks like I was wrong about that actually, the H510 does include two fans already, one in the back and one on top. Sorry about that!  There are a lot of cases that come with fans already. The H510 and the Meshify C I mentioned earlier both include two. A couple of other options I'd look at that come with fans included already would be the Maingear Vybe case and the Corsair iCue 220T.  If you click this link:  https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294964318+4294820854+4294821211+4294819794+4294821004&myStore=true  that will show you a filtered list of the mid-tower cases we carry that included at least two fans. We have a pretty wide selection.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 I will go for the h510 and I dont have to add any more fans correct?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSKevinW said: You do not necessarily need to add any additional fans.

Depending on what games or how many games you play you might want to upgrade your storage a little more like Mike mentioned earlier in the thread. Some games these days are absolutely massive and can take up over 100GB of space.  Other than that I'd say you have a solid setup there. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe ✭ February 2020 TSTonyV said: That all looks pretty good.

Performance wise, they perform nearly identical. This is because both ASUS and EVGA source their GPU dies directly from Nvidia and adhere to the same design specifications that Nvidia mandates. I personally prefer EVGA due to their very strong warranty policy and great customer service, but at the end of the day, it's best to pick a card that suites your needs both from a performance and aesthetic/features perspective. The Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super you linked will be just as fast as the others, and would be great for 1440P gaming at high refresh rates. Since you are using a 1080P 240hz panel, it will have absolutely no issue pushing those framerates in competitive titles, and will still push extremely high refresh rates in most AAA titles at that resolution. I think you'll be very satisfied with any of the RTX 2070 Super options available on the market today.

Didi ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 in Store Information and Policy Hello, I bought an Alienware 34 inch 2018 monitor in from Microcenter Yonkers May 2019.  It’s been okay for the year+ that I’ve had it, but recently it’s started flashing black every few seconds, in no particular pattern.  Drives me insane.  What’s worse, I moved about 2 hours away from Microcenter Yonkers but it’s still the closest Microcenter to me.   Thankfully I did pay for a 2 year warranty with Microcenter, and am hoping to receive some sort of store credit for the monitor. What I’m afraid of is driving down 2 hours to Microcenter, just to be turned away or refused a credit for some reason or another.  How pain free is it to receive a store credit for a faulty purchase once you’ve paid extra for the 2 year warranty? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin December 2020 Sorry to hear that your monitor is having issues. It can vary case by case, however, typically we'd need to review the monitor's problem to see if we can replicate the issue, and then if it does need to be replaced, and we have the item in stock a replacement would be given. In this case, it doesn't look like we carry this model anymore. So a store credit would be issued. It would be at the manager's discretion in the store once they review the item.  As long as the issue is able to be replicated, I don't see there being any issue. Hope this info helps! Let me know if you have more questions or concerns! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

Welcome to the Community.  Overall that's a powerful build, but there is one thing I'd change. If you're only using this primarily for gaming, personally I'd actually switch your processor to either an i5-10600k and then take the savings from that and put it towards upgrading the video card to a 2080 super. The 10600k has a lot of overclocking headroom and with a good overclock comes very very close to the i7 and i9 parts in gaming scenarios. If you don't want to "downgrade" the CPU, I'd at least switch from the 9900k to the 10700k, since they're essentially the same processor, but you'd save a little bit with the 10700k.  In either case you'd have to go with a Z490 board, but there are quite a few Z490 motherboards at the same price point as that Z390 Aorus ultra you had listed.  The NH-D15 is compatible with the LGA1151 socket on the Z390 board you have listed, and the LGA1200 socket on the Z490 boards has the same mounting specifications so it will work with those as well.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.

Welcome to the community! That's really impressive to be a 2070. It looks like it a desktop chip too, not a Max-Q.  Looks like you've found a great deal! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BigWill9701 ✭ January 11 Thanks.   I did see that the sRGB was less than 50%.   Would I notice that much in game?   Also, am I correct in assuming that this won't be a factor when I use an external gaming monitor? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BigWill9701 ✭ January 11 @LandShark I agree regarding the desktop chip as well.   I'm just trying to find the reason why it's priced so reasonably lol. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 11 You're correct. I wouldn't recommend using the screen for photo editing or color correction, but you probably won't notice that color accuracy while gaming. You're correct to assume that it won't matter if you plug an external monitor into the computer. Looks like a great deal. I'm tempted to buy myself a late Christmas present. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.
