Community Article Looking to build a gaming PC — Micro Center Looking to build a gaming PC DSmith95 ✭ April 28 in Help Choosing Parts I am looking to build a gaming pc. I am a native console player of both xbox and ps4 but mainly ps4. I really don't know much about pcs other than PCs have some advantages over console. With the ps5 and series x coming out this year, which I planned to buy both I feel like for that price I could build pc that will beat the performance of next the gen consoles. I really don't have a budget but I would not like to go north of 1500 if that makes sense. I am a heavy call of duty player at the moment and will probably be the only game I play until the next halo, cod or ghost recon game comes out. I would like to for it the be FPS gaming based where I can achieve the best graphics, smoothest game play, fastest gameplay, lowest lag, be able to stream, which is to youtube mainly. i am not to worried about a key board or mouse as I will continue to use a controller for the moment. I use a battle beaver but I will definitely need a perfect matched monitor to pc. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TS_EmileC admin April 28 edited April 28 Hello DSmith.

Community Article Repair/Replace Possibly Defective CPU — Micro Center Repair/Replace Possibly Defective CPU caruem13 ✭ October 10 in Customer Service Questions I purchased an AMD Ryzen 3800x processor from the Marietta Micro Center earlier this year. I believe it was May. I did not open the box or use the product until July when I began building my PC. I do not think I have the receipt. I finished the PC about 2 weeks ago, and since have noticed the CPU temperature was running rather hot. 60-70 Celsius when idle, upwards of 95 in demanding games. Today, I attempted to apply new thermal paste to the CPU. However, upon removal of the fan and CPU, what appears to be about two dozen of the CPU pins are bent, and one has fallen off entirely. I do not believe this to be my fault, and considering that the second most expensive part of my PC has been rendered useless, I am not sure of where to go from here. My question is if there's a way to find out if this unit was defective and if I have any options regarding replacement or refund. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin October 10 Hello @caruem13 With it being purchased around May, it is out of the 15 day return period we offer for processors.  My best recommendation would be contacting AMD to see if you can do a claim on the manufacturer warranty.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

It's one of the most noticeable changes you could make on a system. Any system I use with a hard drive now just feels slow and clunky. I'd also personally recommend going for a PSU that's at least 80+ Bronze as well, and I'm not a big fan of Thermaltake in general.  You could grab something like one of our Powerspec PSUs or an EVGA instead: https://www.microcenter.com/product/485312/powerspec-650-watt-80-plus-bronze-atx-semi-modular-power-supply https://www.microcenter.com/product/465460/evga-650bq-650-watt-80-plus-bronze-atx-semi-modular-power-supply 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

I've mentioned this in several other POST's, but with RAM on the Zen 2's. 3600 is the default speed for the fclk. If you're asynchronous you're going to take a latency hit. It's beneficial to spend a little more for DDR4-3600 to run it synchronously. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JoseB ✭ May 21 ok thanks for the info 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TheITDad ✭✭ May 22 Like TSMikeW said 3600 is the best speed and the best deal on that speed of ram is the G. Skill Ripjaws V series.  They have 3 3600 kits ranging from 70-85 bucks depending on what you want your CL to be.  Honestly the best kit is the CL16 kit that is only 83.99 before tax so about 90 bucks tax and all which for a 3600 speed kit with a CL of 16 thats pretty good. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article My first build in 10+ years — Micro Center My first build in 10+ years Bolski ✭ August 9 edited August 9 in Your Completed Builds It was time for my 10 year old AMD Phenom II X3 720BE (purchased at Microcenter) to be put to pasture and replaced. Microcenter is near my home and had all the parts I needed to build my new gaming/developer machine and I went with the AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

I just need to replace those orange SATA cables with some black ones when I get the time. lol. I do need to get a fan power splitter as well so I can add another couple of fans to the front of the case I believe and maybe one to the top as well. Temps get around 70 degrees C at the most when playing games such as Witcher 3. Otherwise, idle it sits around 40. Stock cooler as well though so not bad with that I would think. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Is 2060 Super sweet spot for 3440x1440 gaming? — Micro Center Is 2060 Super sweet spot for 3440x1440 gaming? Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ October 16 in Graphics Cards In all the craze of the sales over the last couple of days, I snagged myself a $300 35" 3440x1440 monitor (unbelievable bargain, really). If you must know, it's a Monoprice Zero-G 35" Gaming Monitor. I bought it mostly because it will come in super handy for my work from home, but the gaming side of it is a nice bonus! It'll arrive in a few days, so meanwhile, I'm researching on which video card I should get to support the new monitor. Right now, I'm running a GeForce 970. I know it can run games at that resolution, but only if I'm willing to crank the quality settings WAY down. I'm looking long and hard at a 2060 Super, but the Radeon 5700 XT isn't out of the question, either. I know both are perfectly capable cards for what I'm looking for. I'm leaning towards the 2060 only because I hear a lot about driver issues with the Radeon, not to mention that I'd have to go through the hassle of COMPLETELY removing any NVIDIA drivers/software from my PC prior to installing the Radeon. That's a pain I'd like to avoid. So, is the 2060 Super good for high, or even ultra, quality settings for some of the games I want to play on my new monitor? Examples would be the Exodus series, Witcher games (all 3), and probably some incoming games like Cyberpunk and Kerbal Space Program 2. Flight Simulator is also possible down the road, but I know that game punishes a lot of cards. I should note, I'm far more interested in FPS than I am in refresh rate (doesn't hurt, but it's not like I'm gaming competitively, so it's irrelevant in my book). Final question: When will the 2060 Super cards be back in stock, if at all? (Mayfield Hts., OH location) 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments Felicity near Tustin ✭ October 19 edited October 19 fyi, you want the fps before the refresh rate. but having both is nice. I just enjoy 240hz and under 180 starts to feel slow. having a high refresh rate without consistency is frustrating. There is no sweet spot for 4k; it might be the 3080; but if you think a 970 can do 4k in games that have any demand at all, a 2060 super will blow it away regardless. Look for the 2070 super evga black gaming, it's rather nice but the price point is contentious with so many maybes. it was the cheapest middleground I could find without going to a 2080ti or something and @ 500 is quite nice and has pulled its weight. the 5700xt was a disappointment all around. If it was any good, nvidia's 20 series wouldn't have been so stupid. The only thing more absurd is making a product better for half the price and expecting 20 customers. everyone trying to keep secrets and purposeful leaks so specific that they don't even know what they're trying to do. very government-esque. DDU will remove drivers/folders easily. Or reinstall windows. Good to do with any large upgrade anyway. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin October 24 The 2060 Super can certainly do 1440p at high/ultra depending on the title but the better question is what kind of FPS are you looking to get at those settings? Ultimately it just depends on the title.  For some perspective, I have an LG 27GL850-B. 2560x1440, paired with a 2080 Super + 3700X . In Horizon Zero Dawn I was usually able to get ~80-90FPS at high settings. A 2060 Super is probably good for around 60FPS. Based on this video, Witcher 3 at ultra should hit 70+ FPS at 1440p with a 2060 Super.  For future graphically demanding titles like Cyber Punk, you can probably run them at 1440p high/max settings, but you may not be able to hit that 60FPS target, just depends on how intense they are.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ October 25 TSTonyV said: The 2060 Super can certainly do 1440p at high/ultra depending on the title but the better question is what kind of FPS are you looking to get at those settings?

I worry about their driver fiasco happening all over again, though. (Hopefully they've learned their lesson after the 5000 series). Yeah, with the new console push I'd advise waiting. The new lineup from nVidia's 3000 series and AMDs 6000 series is a hell of a jump in price to performance. Obviously stock is an issue for a 3000 series until at least after Christmas, so if stock on 6000 series is good enough I'd make the jump there for future proofing, drivers be damned (I've been burned by AMD drivers before. It's an inconvenience, but if the performance is there then make the jump anyways just for the massive FPS increase). EDIT: For reference, ray tracing and DLSS enabled 2019-2020 AAA games on 3070 are running in the 75-90 FPS range. A 2070S or above will do in the range of 45-90 depending on the card (2070S being the low end of that!), but at those prices you might as well buy the newest gen since it'll be on par price wise but see a jump of 30-50% in performance with bells and whistles on. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article New 3080 Build — Micro Center New 3080 Build Nick_330 ✭ September 11 edited September 14 in Help Choosing Parts I'm looking to upgrade from my old 750TI to a 3080 if I can get my hands on one when it releases next week.  I have my build picked out for the most part and would love some input on my part choices if anyone has suggestions for parts that would be better suited for a 3080 build.  I'm mostly confused with my motherboard choice and if I should go only SSD memory or throw in a HDD as well.  But I'm open to all suggestions.  Here is my build so far that I've put together.  Let me know what you think! https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=cc98edb6-6a53-45cf-b021-4aaab3a1c053   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin September 11 Hello @Nick_330 Your build looks good!  Love all the Corsair stuff, i'm a big Corsair fan.  No real changes I would make besides considering if you need the thermal paste.  The thermal paste is already pre-applied to the Corsair AIO and it's pretty good.  You will only need to reapply if you are changing CPUs or reseating the cooler.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Felicity near Tustin ✭ September 12 You may want to consider 750 or 850w PSU with the 3080 and a 10700k- especially if you plan to improve on this in the future.  I personally use all SSDs for daily driving. HDDs are for backups. the WD blue is a sata ssd; you should get at least one nvme ssd. The 500gb sn750 wd black is $70 on amazon right now, and 75 here. Get a main drive, then expand from there depending on your needs and organization. For the thermal paste I sorta do recommend getting your own, but only if it's thermal grizzly, the included stuff is plenty otherwise. Having extra never hurts in case you put something on wrong and need to fix it and reapply! For the motherboard, do you really want wifi?  https://www.microcenter.com/product/623792/msi-z490-mpg-gaming-plus-intel-lga-1200-atx-motherboard You may do better with a few dollars shaved off on the non-wifi version of the board. Wifi is real bad for gamering if you want to play pvp stuff. I have that same corsair cooler, and, welll... it's good, but a bit outdated. I think I would consider 1. shaving money off the case a bit, and the mobo above, and maybe going for a 280mm h115i platinum or the like. It depends on how much you care about trying to overclock and learn all that if not, the h100 is fine.

RGB is overrated! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Nick_330 ✭ September 14 Thanks for the feedback!  I don't really intend on overclocking this machine.  I don't know much about it and with what I'm putting in this computer it seems plenty powerful enough for the gaming I'll be doing on it.  I wanted to go with the NZXT Kraken 280mm but since I picked a Corsair case and RAM I wanted to keep it all in the same brand for the cooler too.  Like you said if I'm not overclocking the H100 should be good so I think I'll be ok.   I do agree RGB is overrated!  But I want my build to look sorta flashy and my budget it $2,000 so I had the flexibility on the RGB so why not?  I'm sure the RAM you suggested would be great as well but I had the money to spend on the RGB.   I think for storage I've decided on 1TB WD SSD for the OS and any games I'll install, 1TB should be enough for the games I'll be installing but if it isn't I can use the 2TB HDD I picked out for a backup I guess.  I don't think I'll need much more than 1TB but all the SSD does is improve loadtime so I'll manage what I put on the SSD and what I put on my HDD. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin September 14 Nick_330 said: Thanks for the feedback!  I don't really intend on overclocking this machine.  I don't know much about it and with what I'm putting in this computer it seems plenty powerful enough for the gaming I'll be doing on it.  I wanted to go with the NZXT Kraken 280mm but since I picked a Corsair case and RAM I wanted to keep it all in the same brand for the cooler too.  Like you said if I'm not overclocking the H100 should be good so I think I'll be ok.   I do agree RGB is overrated!  But I want my build to look sorta flashy and my budget it $2,000 so I had the flexibility on the RGB so why not?  I'm sure the RAM you suggested would be great as well but I had the money to spend on the RGB.   I think for storage I've decided on 1TB WD SSD for the OS and any games I'll install, 1TB should be enough for the games I'll be installing but if it isn't I can use the 2TB HDD I picked out for a backup I guess.  I don't think I'll need much more than 1TB but all the SSD does is improve loadtime so I'll manage what I put on the SSD and what I put on my HDD. 1TB should be enough... if you don't play CoD! I think Modern Warfare is up to about 230GB by itself, and so many newer games I've purchased are 70-80GB+. It's pretty crazy how huge some titles have gotten.  Build looks pretty good overall. Only thing I'll say is that if you're not planning on overclocking at all, getting one of the k-series CPUs is kind of pointless. There's a reason they're unlocked! You might as well just get the normal i7-10700 instead and save that $50 to apply it to something else in your build.  The 10700k does have higher boost clocks at stock settings but it won't make a drastic difference.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Nick_330 ✭ September 14 edited September 14 1TB should be enough... if you don't play CoD!

I'm not sure if the link I originally posted continues to update as I make changes but this is the final part build I think I'm going to run with.  Fingers crossed I can get a 3080 at my local Best Buy Thursday!   https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=e67426f4-3877-4b8a-b4f3-34b6a0762565 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin September 14 Yes, an N100 or other similar performance AIO liquid cooler or high-end air cooler (e.g. Noctua NH-D15) would be well suited for overclocking on a 10700k.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article How are black Friday sales here? — Micro Center How are black Friday sales here? Geo ✭ November 8 edited November 8 in Sales I'm new to ohio and I'm looking to make a new pc, I'm doing massive over time and plan to have around 4000-5000 dollars for black friday, I'm not sure I'll have enough for all the parts i want but the main goal will be the more expensive parts followed by the memory ram cooling and the rest.

Community Article New to PC Building - Help Wanted — Micro Center New to PC Building - Help Wanted AirRick ✭ February 10 edited February 10 in Your Completed Builds I'm new to the PC building world. I want to build a Gaming PC for myself. My budget is $1000 - $1300. I haven't decided between Intel or AMD. I'm more leaning towards Intel as I read more about it. I already have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Also, it would be nice to have the color scheme of Red and White. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments ryau admin February 10 Hi AirRick, welcome to the forum. What games are you intending to play? What monitor do you have? 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter AirRick ✭ February 11 Hello Ryau, I play League of legends, Apex Legends, and Fortnite now. I plan on playing Role Playing games like Final Fantasy. I don’t have a gaming monitor right now. Any recommendations? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin February 11 Welcome to the forum AirRick. The titles you play are more CPU driven, meaning that they benefit from a faster processor over a very high-end graphics card. For those titles, I would recommend this build: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=82f07788-54ff-46f7-bd6b-0989ae2199ff This puts you right at the upper limit of your $1300 budget and includes a 1440p 165hz G-Sync monitor for a fast, smooth competitive gaming experience. If you wanted to save some money and get closer to your $1000 side of the budget, we can swap the overclockable 9600K out for a Core i5 9400F and go with a B360 motherboard. That would save you a little over $100. You could also remove the RGB CPU cooler and swap the RAM for a slower, non-RGB kit and save another $60-$70 on top of that. Either way, you will get a great system within that budget that will play the titles you are looking to play. If you have any questions, please let us know! 2 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Build question — Micro Center Build question Felipeportnoy3 ✭ May 8 edited May 8 in Help Choosing Parts Hey there I'm planning on building my first gaming PC. I'd like a PC that'd run any type of games very well and maybe even a VR set. I've put this together, do you guys know if these parts are compatible and if this is a good build? I'd appreciate any sort of feedback. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=dd870371-c751-412e-a8f3-ac602ffc63e9 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin May 9 That's a solid build overall. I did notice you didn't include Windows in the cost, keep that in mind since it's another $140 to think about.  The build you have there should pretty much anything very well. At 1080p you could run 60+ FPS on high or max settings in even graphically intense games, in less demanding ones you could easily push 100+. You should be able to handle 1440p in pretty much any game as well.  Everything is compatible, just make sure when you pick up your motherboard that it says "Ryzen 3000 series ready" on the box, if not you'll need to do a BIOS update (which our service desk can do).  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TheITDad ✭✭ May 13 Not sure if you already purchased parts or not but something to keep in mind is that AMD just announced that the 4000 series cpu's won't be compatible with 400 series mobo's.  So if you can swing it perhaps jump up to a x570 board instead of the B450 just because it will allow you to upgrade your cpu easier down the road without having to do both.  The asrock steel legend x570 board is pretty nice and would only cost you an extra 70 bucks currently.  Just something to think about if you want to be able to upgrade to a 4000 series cpu  down the road.  Or hold off and wait for B550 launch which I believe is next month and get one of those boards for probably the same price or only 15-20 bucks more. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Gaming build $1200 HELP?? A rookie to this... — Micro Center Gaming build $1200 HELP?? A rookie to this... Klondike ✭ July 27 in Help Choosing Parts Hey guys, I am looking to get advice before I make a final decision. I am planning on using this pc to take advantage of xbox game pass. I'm looking to build my first pc within the next 3 weeks, but I can wait a little longer if better parts become available/worth the wait. I pretty much need everything besides a monitor. Thanks in advance!!  https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tQZxzN  Heres is a previously suggested build. Also, if I went $200 less, what would I lose out on?  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Best Answers TSTonyV admin July 27 Accepted Answer What you lose out on would depend on where you want to save cost.  The easiest area would be the case. There are good cases you can find for about $70 like the Cooler Master NR600, NZXT H510, Lian Li 205, and such.  You could also save on the motherboard. The B450 Tomahawk Max is a good board, but you can put a Ryzen 5 3600 in a cheaper motherboard and it will still work fine. There are B450 boards around $80 that should work. You also don't NEED to use an aftermarket cooler. If you're planning to overclock then the Hyper 212 will be a good choice, but the stock cooler is adequate if you leave the CPU at stock settings and don't overclock.  I'd also look specifically for the EVGA RTX 2060 KO, which is sold cheaper than other RTX 2060 models that are available, for about $300 typically.  Those changes by themselves would save you a fair bit without losing any performance. Between motherboard, case, and GPU it'd be about $130 saved altogether.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin July 27 Accepted Answer The Cooler Master NR600 will have the best airflow due to the mesh front panel, so it would be my personal choice if you're planning on overclocking and care a lot about thermals.  A Ryzen 5 3600 + 2060 is a solid mid-range build and you can definitely handle streaming and other multitasking.  5 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers Klondike ✭ July 27 Also I decided I will try overclocking. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Klondike ✭ July 27 TSTonyV said: What you lose out on would depend on where you want to save cost.  The easiest area would be the case.

I have no preference. Also, I'm guessing the cases got cheaper because it has no LED, works for me! 2.

Community Article Thoughts/Grading on my first budget build — Micro Center Thoughts/Grading on my first budget build blkmamba1229 ✭ April 11 in Help Choosing Parts I haven’t built a PC since back in high school so I’m a bit rusty on grading my build on how efficient it will be. I will be using this mainly for gaming and possibly streaming. Games like Overwatch, Rocket League, Fortnite, Call of Duty, other Triple A games. Please let me know y’all thoughts on its effectiveness, compatibility, how long this build will last me, and if future modifications can be made.  - T’s & G’s Also, I’m not sure how much fans I need. The case comes with one already and the CPU has its own cooling. The place were it will be stored at is usually at a stable 70 degrees F. Should I buy more or how should I take this?

I believe that MB has 4 DIMM slots, so you could always add additional RAM if you determine that you need more. I have an Inland Premium 2GB NVME M.2. I like it alot. Good stuff for the money. You could always add a 2.5" SSD for back-up or storage. Have fun! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Ian admin April 13 Greetings. Yes your build does look good overall. You may want to look into adding some additional fans for sure. It appears that case has 2 140mm fan spots on the front of the case, and 120mm fan spots on the rear and top of case so there is the room to get some additional cooling fans.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.
