If I were you, I would place a reservation request through the website. That will send a request to the local store for them to locate the item and set it to the side for you. If it's there, you'll get a confirmation email confirming it and we'll then hold it for three days.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 255 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 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 even called and waited on hold for 20 minutes before someone confirming that they it said 1 was in stock. I was told to come back and wait in line before the store opened again tomorrow... 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bjjb99 ✭ December 2020 Same issue. Yesterday I saw a graphics card was listed as "1 in stock" on the website for the Fairfax MC.  Drove 20 minutes there since I couldn't find a phone number on the MC website to call.  When I got there, I was told "yeah, we don't have any, it was out of stock a while ago and there's a waiting list."  Drove back to the office.  An hour later it was still listed as "1 in stock" on the website.  Sad. How difficult is it in this day and age to have up-to-date inventory management that ties in with a company's website? 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook briandanimal ✭ December 2020 Ok, so get this... After having not been able to verify what the truth was about what was in stock, I ended up purchasing my original motherboard & CPU combo elsewhere (paying about $40 more).  I did not see a way to cancel my reservation for this order online so I guess it just expires after 3 days.  Meanwhile, I had placed a different order (different items) for pickup at the same store in Rockville.  So now I technically have two orders submitted.  When I arrived at the store to pickup my second order, they looked it up by name and brought BOTH orders to the counter.  The original order for the motherboard & CPU was in stock and had been there all along.  Ok, so I'm out $40 and they lost that particular sale (everyone looses)...that's cool, I make mistakes too.  So I fulfil the second order, pay for it, they bag the items up, and I leave the store.  I get to my car to check out my new product, and I open one of the boxes and IT'S EMPTY!!!!!  At this point, I'm rightfully angry but I decide to just be cool and go back in and discuss it.  Long story short, they were cool about it and just swapped out the empty box for a full one without issue or argument.  Needless to say, that was a relief.  I should point out that the staff at the internet orders counter were really kind and pleasant. Here's the deal...there's a never ending list of reasons/excuses as to why the inventory online doesn't reflect real-time inventory; I get that.  But when I showed up to the store and walked the floor, I had at least 5 commission hungry sales people ask me if I needed help.  From one lens that might sound like a GOOD thing, but during my brief stay, I saw at least 4 or 5 clumps of sales people in different parts of the store standing together chatting amongst themselves.  PUT THESE PEOPLE BEHIND A PHONE!!!!  Get them in the online chat queue.  Get them organizing the shelves, flipping a sign outside, or organizing the warehouse area....SOMETHING!!!  Sometimes your customers drive a fair distance to give you their money.  Please, do us the courtesy of giving us your attention on the phones or chat...particularly when you've got unproductive staff standing around.  Call your telephone system technician and ask them to change your automated attendant's "business hours" to reflect the holiday hours so the attendant isn't telling the callers that your open until 10pm only to press a button to speak to a customer service representative and be told by the recording that you are closed without putting you through. You knew Black Friday/Cyber Monday, etc. was coming...make a list next time. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook pL86 ✭ December 2020 I'm also frustrated with the inaccurate stock status at stores.  It's not even those items that sell out quickly like GPUs and CPUs - the St. David's store has had at least three Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi motherboards sitting on the floor for the last two weeks and the store stock on the Microcenter website says it's sold out.  It seems to be a cruel joke that the automated voice prompt when you call the store encourages you to check the stock status on the website because "you see what we see." 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 Hello everyone!  Thank you everyone here for posting your thoughts on our stock on our website and how it is reflective of stock in store.  I apologize for all and every inconvenience and issue this has caused.  This post will address the issues you are all having with our stocking and reservation system. Firstly, regarding the 3000 series GPUs as well as other recent hardware releases, they are very low supply and high demand items, some of the biggest discrepancies we have seen between supply and demand in a long while.  We have customers waiting outside of the store everyday before opening for hours for a chance at a possible shipment of GPUs.  Before the store is open and once the stock of the GPU is known, those at the front of the line are sometimes provided a voucher so they no longer need to wait in the line.  We are approaching this as a First Come First Serve while trying to prevent large crowds from forming.  Though most just wait in the car and purchase as soon as we open, some do come back later in the day to get their GPU.  While it may show 1 or 2 in stock online, those are likely claimed by customers that waited and received a voucher.  The best way to find stock for the 3000 series cards and other recent hardware releases would be going to your local store, just keep in mind there are people waiting every day for their chance to get one.   @pL86 That is strange that it is not showing up on our website if there are three on the floor.  I am currently looking at the stock and I do see it listed as out of stock.  I have sent an email to the St. Davids location to see if they can investigate exactly what is happening with it. @briandanimal I apologize for the whole mixup with reservations and missing items and I am glad to see the issue you had was resolved.  In regards to our sales consultants in store only chatting, I do agree that there should be things to do outside of chatting if there are no customers to assist.  Just would like to mention that our stores do not have an Online Chat or Phone Lines physically inside the store.  It is all handled at our headquarters in Columbus, OH.     0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BrianH ✭ December 2020 I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook pL86 ✭ December 2020 edited December 2020 TSPhillipT, Thanks for following up about the stock situation at the St. David's store.  I would be interested to know what the store tells you.  BTW, It's not just the Crosshair VIII Hero Wifi mobo  - two Crosshair Formulas have been on the shelf - right next to the Crosshair Heroes - while the Microcenter site has listed them as out of stock.  I can take a pic of all the mobos sitting on the shelf tomorrow as verification.  To be honest, this has been a longstanding problem with the store - I have learned, unfortunately, that the website cannot be trusted when it comes to low volume items and that the only way to be sure is to physically go to the store and ask an associate to look up stock in the internal system. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook briandanimal ✭ December 2020 @TSPhillipT Yeah, there's always reasons why things don't work out the way they should.  The truth is, most reasons don't have anything to do with the customer.  The customer simply goes online, looks for products, selects and pays for one.  At that point, either way you spin it, the customer should be able to trust that the deal is done.  The same is true with every customer facing function of the business.  Your automated attendant when calling in states that if you're calling to check stock on an item, what's listed on the website is the same information an associate has access to.  In other words, don't waste our time on the phones, just look it up yourself on the website and trust it's accuracy.  Except, it's not accurate and your inability to follow through on what you say leaves no reason to trust you. I get it... I'm just someone who's upset and oh well, "you can't satisfy everyone".  Except, clearly I'm not alone.  This thread is full of others who were led to it because of it's title.  A title that at this point seems to resonate with people from coast to coast.  How many others have had similar problems but didn't care to look online and find this discussion.  How many others decided to just not waste their time?  Chances are, far more than who actually took the time.  You have inventory and management problems that appear to be systemic throughout the company. Another thing, yes...you can get your sales people in the stores on the phones.  It's called Voice over IP (VoIP).  Configure 3 or 4 phones to register with the call center's call control server and send them to each store.  During downtime, answering phone calls not only provides your customers with a sense that their business is appreciated, but it provides continuing sales and customer service training to your staff and improves productivity. Hand out vouchers to people in line during door buster days?  Easy!!!  Barcode the vouchers with barcodes corresponding to actual physical items in the store.  Once the vouchers are printed, remove them from your inventory immediately...you know they'll be sold even if the voucher holder doesn't return.  The voucher simply states that the guarantee is only valid until noon.  After that, the item is back up for grabs. At the end of the day, your problems are your problems.  It's your job to iron out those problems so these things don't happen.  Explaining why the problem happened doesn't put the item in my hand.  What we need to hear is that you understand that our concerns are valid and that you can do better than the way things are happening and that your current system is due for a major overhaul.  Anything other than that only deepens the distrust, and apparent incoherence. Bottom line....get it together.  Potential customers are dropping like flies. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook iaisaac ✭ December 2020 BrianH said: I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. Marking the 9th of December,  I was in line as well amongst many customers who have the same reason as you, on the same day and location, and others who are casual shoppers. But I rated this experience as the most unprofessional, unethical, and disappointing visit I had with Mircocenter. To put details into perspective, they lacked the communication skills to directly inform us about the store's late opening as they barricaded the door, in my opinion that was disrespectful. Management was outrageously bias in three instances within this particular day: being told stay in our car before 2 hours before opening and not accounting for newly arrived customers who conveniently formed a line thus kicking us early birds out. Then whoever worked there, walked out laughing with other associates upon opening minutes late within the promised late 10am sign, and yelled out in a rude manner to the customers to "shut up, one at a time!" with those who were complaining and proceeded to retaliate by disregarding the early birds in line to people who had just arrived and let them go first. While some were trying to explain the situation, they showed inconsideration and told us to back off. On the third instance, whoever was in charge did not let anyone in who were looking for a "graphics card." That was it. A graphics card? Knowingly very well on there site they had many other models of graphics card, surely he was referring to the 3000s series without stating the specifics. About loosing loyal customers, I had others waiting next to me who weren't even looking for the new 30s 'graphics cards' but the ones they had in stock like the 5700xt. But she was physically turned away in line to go home because she was wrongly accused about looking for a 'graphics card.' For Microcenter anticipating this situation over and over again, it seems this particular location at Tustin fails to learn from their mistakes. If such a location is going to earn recognition because of demand, surely I expect humane treatment. Just to further escalate my argument, I would think it's their associates job to inform us of stock before wasting our time in line because the Tustin Authorities(police) who went inside were told to inform us customers and came out to tell us they "had no stock." Obviously the authorities had no idea what stock they were referring to, but to blankly state no stock means they should've closed that particular day because of no stock. This is merely bad business practice especially with heightened expectations of those carrying these scarcely demanded computer components. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin December 2020 iaisaac said: BrianH said: I woke up this morning, like many mornings, and refreshed a bunch of sites to see if I can get my hands on an AMD 5000 series processor.  Sure enough, it said you had 7 5950x and 20 5900x at the Tustin, CA store.  I got there at 8:30 am and there was already a line.  The store didn't open at 9, the posted opening time.  Instead it opened at 10 am.  While I was in line, a friend of mine messaged me, saying a friend of his works there and there are no 5000 series processors in stock.  Later in the day my friend told me that his friend told him that they are scalping the processors, and that the managers are well aware.  Now I have no way to know if this is true, but I sure would like it looked into.  It is absolutely irresponsible, in a pandemic, with known demand for these products, to put up faulty stock information, scalping or not and have us come to your store if there is zero need to.  Maybe you don't care, but I am guessing if you keep this up, you will lose loyal customers very quickly.  This kind of stuff needs to be fixed asap.  Also, why is there no way to pre order and just simply get into a queue?  It makes no sense to make us rub elbows all the time trying to get an item. Marking the 9th of December,  I was in line as well amongst many customers who have the same reason as you, on the same day and location, and others who are casual shoppers. But I rated this experience as the most unprofessional, unethical, and disappointing visit I had with Mircocenter. To put details into perspective, they lacked the communication skills to directly inform us about the store's late opening as they barricaded the door, in my opinion that was disrespectful. Management was outrageously bias in three instances within this particular day: being told stay in our car before 2 hours before opening and not accounting for newly arrived customers who conveniently formed a line thus kicking us early birds out. Then whoever worked there, walked out laughing with other associates upon opening minutes late within the promised late 10am sign, and yelled out in a rude manner to the customers to "shut up, one at a time!" with those who were complaining and proceeded to retaliate by disregarding the early birds in line to people who had just arrived and let them go first. While some were trying to explain the situation, they showed inconsideration and told us to back off. On the third instance, whoever was in charge did not let anyone in who were looking for a "graphics card." That was it. A graphics card? Knowingly very well on there site they had many other models of graphics card, surely he was referring to the 3000s series without stating the specifics. About loosing loyal customers, I had others waiting next to me who weren't even looking for the new 30s 'graphics cards' but the ones they had in stock like the 5700xt. But she was physically turned away in line to go home because she was wrongly accused about looking for a 'graphics card.' For Microcenter anticipating this situation over and over again, it seems this particular location at Tustin fails to learn from their mistakes. If such a location is going to earn recognition because of demand, surely I expect humane treatment. Just to further escalate my argument, I would think it's their associates job to inform us of stock before wasting our time in line because the Tustin Authorities(police) who went inside were told to inform us customers and came out to tell us they "had no stock." Obviously the authorities had no idea what stock they were referring to, but to blankly state no stock means they should've closed that particular day because of no stock. This is merely bad business practice especially with heightened expectations of those carrying these scarcely demanded computer components. Sorry we didn't respond sooner.  I wanted to quickly explain that we take your safety and the safety of our associates very seriously.  On the morning in question there were some threats of violence made and we chose to wait for senior management to arrive and open late to make sure we could safely take care of everyone.  We had no intention of opening later than posted until just before opening and the decision was made.   I can pass your feedback along regarding the management of the lines and who is or is not being let in first or how associates are addressing potential customers so any issues on that front can be addressed.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bun ✭ January 2021 I have never seen a more deceptive scammy company in my life. Employees were rude as Hell. It says clear as day, we have 1 card in stock, must pick up in the store on the website. This is a company that specializes in computers, but yet can not run a website.  This reminds me of the old chinese bait and switch, get peeps in the door, and they will spend. A hour wasted for nothing, website says 1 3060 TI in stock, but NO, just a LIE, a inventory error said the 3rd grader behind the desk at the 9294 Metcalf Avenue Regency Park Shopping Center Overland Park, KS 66212 store. I was going to drop 200 more on a case and power supply, but NEVER again will i set foot in a micro center again. Funny it still shows it as in stock, 2 hours later.

Since the system appears to be functioning correctly, it's possible that the RGB lighting was disabled through the ASUS Aura Sync software or BIOS. Start by making sure you have Aura Sync installed: https://www.asus.com/campaign/aura/global/download.php. From there, launch the application, select Motherboard at the top list of components, then make sure the slider on the right is set to "On". From there, you should be able to adjust the various RGB lighting options. If this doesn't work, let us know, we can explore additional options. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Atlfit ✭ June 2020 Ok will do I will try that out!

Restart your system, tap F2 or DEL to enter the BIOS. From there, press the F4 key to adjust your RGB lighting on or off. You may need to tap it a few times to cycle through the various options. You will want to make sure it's set to "All On", as this will enable both the integrated motherboard lighting as well as lighting to the RGB headers should you plan to use them. Let me know how that goes. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Atlfit ✭ June 2020 Hey sorry for the long wait - yes it is turned on and I clicked all on just to be sure as well  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 255 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 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?

Ajaness ✭ February 2020 in Help Choosing Parts Before anything else please note the Graphics Card in the build is a placeholder to buy for a bit to see if anything comes out on the RTX 3000 series, otherwise swapping in something like a 2080ti or equivalent in the 3000 series which would eat ~$13000 from the listed budget. Budget also doesn't consider mouse/keyboard/headset/monitor/windows-key or a 1tb non NVMe ssd I already own from the previous tower. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=61f3afb3-5cca-42e4-a45f-38e74d5f26c1 Including these parts I didn't find available from Microcenter: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler Fractal Design Meshify S2 ATX Mid Tower Case Also not sure to stick with that motherboard in the builder or this one also available from Microcenter: ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard I'm not an expert and all this has been pulled together after days of research and input from another forum but would really like any input before pulling the trigger, especially on mobo. I'm really not sure what the difference ends up being for a $150 price gap. The goal is to "future proof" a VR capable tower able to last ~6+ years like the current tower I'm replacing did. I know future proof isn't actually possible but to be able to VR to varying quality over the next 6ish years would be phenomenal. If it helps to judge the build's quality assume the graphics card will upgrade into: MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio Triple-Fan 11GB GDDR6 PCIe 3.0 Video Card 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 Answer ✓ With that sort of budget, I'd personally look at switching up the motherboard a bit. I've read in a few places that the X570 Taichi has a weird issue where, depending on which graphics card and slot you put it in, your GPU can end up feeding hot air into the chipset heatsink and cause it get hotter than it should and potentially cause performance issues. The X570 Crosshair VIII Hero is definitely a good option, another option I'd look at would the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. You can also play around with your RAM a bit and find a kit that would perform as well for a little less, like the the G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600 kits we carry.  This is what it'd look like with the parts I mentioned switched out:  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=d8481cc7-d1b5-4848-91b4-ba49fde7840d As a note, I put in the Lian-Li case as a placeholder for price since we don't have the Meshify S2, just the Meshify C which is smaller than the S2. I also put in the Noctua DH-15S as a placeholder for price. It is very similar to the DH-15 but has one less fan.  With those two things in as place holders total price comes out to just under $2800 before tax assuming the MSI 2080ti you were looking at is the final decistion.  5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TheITDad ✭✭ February 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=b7bdf3dd-cc3c-4cdc-a0fb-00e80c6f4ed3 So this is the completed build and it comes in at about 2850 with 3 fans to replace the ones in the case I picked and put similar ram.  I would say the "actual" cost of these parts as long as you somewhat deal shop is more in the 2750 range plus or minus a few bucks.  So that leaves you about 200-250 in head room to play around with.  Now since you have basically the best GPU without going to a titan and your AMD 3900x is no slouch of a CPU either that leaves you the rest of the PC for upgrades.  And to me the best place for you to upgrade would be to go with an AIO cooler for your CPU.  While AMD generally has cooler CPU's than Intel.  Any CPU with that much horsepower is just gonna get hot, with it's TDP of 105 w.  I would go with something along the lines of a https://www.microcenter.com/product/618680/nzxt-kraken-x73-360mm-rgb-cpu-water-cooling-kit, or https://www.microcenter.com/product/610102/evga-clc-360-360mm-rgb-water-cooling-kit.  This will allow you to maintain better CPU temps and these should still let you fall well under the 3k limit.  Now personally I like the performance of Noctua fans, but by god the standard ones are ugly.  Try to find the all black unless you like the color scheme then do you.  Otherwise with these parts your about as "future proof" as you can get.  Sticking with the 2080TI even after the 3000 series comes out will probably save you a bit of cash because while not a huge price drop the 2080TI will drop possibly under the 1100 mark once the 3000 series drops and honestly that GPU should handle just about anything you throw at it for at least another 2-3 years and by then the 3000 series will have dropped slightly and you can upgrade that then. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ajaness ✭ February 2020 G.Skill Trident Z Neo is what I was considering but by recommendation swapped to Corsair's LPX due to its reputation as low profile to make sure it would fit on the mobo with the Noctura fan. I'm very wary of liquid cooling and would rather not deal with it if I can get away with air cooling with the Noctua, I don't mind the ugly brown and white color scheme but will look into the black. It seems though that the build should preform great once I settle on a mobo, just down to waiting on the 3000 series. Will probably look harder at mobo's until I come in to my local-ish microcenter but it's probably down to either the Crosshair VIII Hero or the recommended Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master. The Aorus Elite and Pro have been recommended separately as well, and the 1 year warranty on the Crosshair VIII Hero is a bit of a turn-off for a $400 board so might end up with one of the Aorus iterations. Good call on the Taichi issue, I've spent most of my time trying to learn about cpu/gpu and have nothing in the mobo area so possibly saved me there. Thanks for the input! Any final thoughts would be appreciated but I'll probably be ordering the RAM, Noctua, and Case tomorrow to hope it arrives by the weekend when I should be in to microcenter to snag the rest. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 Ajaness said:  the 1 year warranty on the Crosshair VIII Hero is a bit of a turn-off for a $400 board so might end up with one of the Aorus iterations.  The 1-year warranty listed on our website is incorrect actually, this motherboard should have a three-year warranty through ASUS.

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 Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 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?

So, I'm in the market for a new motherboard, CPU, and GPU. I'd like to spend less than $300 for the CPU, $250 for the GPU, and $200 for the motherboard, but I'd also like to find the best I can get for that money. I also want to make it with an eye towards future upgrading should that time come (but if I can make something really good for that money, it won't be too necessary). If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be really appreciative for the support. Here'd the remaining specs from my previous build (that are still functional): Toshiba 1TB HDD (x2) Corsair Carbide Series Spec-02 Mid-Tower Case Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (x2) Corsair RMx 750W 80+Gold PSU (Brand New)  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin July 2020 Greetings.

The processors are extremely similar. If you look at benchmarks for games, the 10600k typically outperforms the Ryzen 3700x but the margin is slim. A downside to Intel is that you would need to purchase cooling for it, which the Ryzen would come with a capable cooler for that.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 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?

That board can support higher memory speeds than 3000, you simply have to enable the XMP/DOCP profile to do so and technically you're "overclocking" at that point. I would still 100% recommend DDR4-3600 if you're going with a third generation Ryzen CPU since that's the sweetspot for performance. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MAG-B550-TOMAHAWK/Specification That should be true for basically any B450/B550/X570 motherboard besides that one.  As for your build, the parts list looks solid, although if you're specifically targeting gaming you may want to look at the Intel i5-10600k at that price point. The 3700X is a great CPU but it is beat by the 10600k in gaming scenarios. Of course if you're in other situations outside that that are better at utilizing the extra two cores the 3700X has over the 10600k then the 3700X will be better. Video editing and rendering can fall into that category.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FallenGremory ✭ September 2020 @TSTonyV yea it won't be just for gaming but that will be what I use it for at least 9% of the time. I'd like to stick with amd. I could probably go for the 3800 if that would be better, also is there a better motherboard you'd recommend? There's been a few msi or asus ones I've kinda been looking at 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 There's no reason to get the 3800X over the 3700X. You might see a 1-2% increase at most and that would never be noticeable in practice, just save the extra money instead.  The B550 you chose is a solid option, if you'd like a long breakdown of good B550 boards to look at I'd recommend watching this video: It covers a wide range of B550 boards in various form factors/price points.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FallenGremory ✭ September 2020 edited September 2020 @TSTonyVwell now I'm kinda looking at the aorus pro... Lol Also how's this for memory? Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 That should be fine, although you could probably get a kit of DDR4-3600 CL16 for the same price. It's a minor difference, but CL16 is slightly better latency vs CL18.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FallenGremory ✭ September 2020 edited September 2020 Did you mean a 4 pack or a 2 pack? The memory I listed says 60 on amazon, a 4 pack of the same exact thing but 16 says $320, a 2 pack is about $60. Which doesn't really make much sense... Lol 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 edited September 2020 For the same amount. A 2x8GB kit of DDR4-3600 CL18 and a 2x8GB kit of DDR4-3600 CL16 should be fairly similar in price. Normally the CL16 will be a little more expensive but depending on which kits you find/deals available you can find them for the same or a cheaper price, e.g. https://www.microcenter.com/product/626787/corsair-vengeance-lpx-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-3600-pc4-28800-cl18-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-cmk16gx4m2d3600---black and  https://www.microcenter.com/product/612970/gskill-ripjaws-v-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-3600-pc4-28800-cl16-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc---black It's not THAT big of a difference, this is a super minor nitpick so I wouldn't be too concerned about it, but it never hurts to have that teeny little bit of extra.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook FallenGremory ✭ September 2020 I don't live anywhere near a micro center...

When you said, "Front-panel USB-C headers are not available on all motherboards, so if you were to use the H510 with that motherboard, you won't be able to plug in the USB-C cable." That sparked my interest. Recently, my USB C doesn't work on that same motherboard and case. I recall using it on the front panel, contrast to what everyone was saying (You can't use the front panel with that motherboard) Because I used the front panel, does that mean that I won't be able to use the USB C again? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 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?

Lets me defer mundane writes from ever touching my SSD, helping prolong the lifespan. I'd imagine that since his is an ITX build and he only has 2 DIMM slots, he is just thinking long-term and buying RAM while its still cheap. Not a bad idea in all honesty, given the recent trend we've seen with memory pricing in general. Snuggie said: Thank you!

I've thought about building an ITX AMD system as I've only ever done Intel ITX systems in the past. I'd like to wait for their next generation of processors though, so there is no telling when I'll actually be able to get started on the build. Nice job with the part selection, I wish you the best of luck with your build.
