    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 Super WindForce OC

    Strange conclusion. The difference between the 5500xt and the 1650 super seem negligible at best, but looking at the charts the 1650 is approx 1fps faster in 1080p and the 5500xt is approx 1fps faster at 1440p, in the uk the 5500xt and 1650 super are the same price. so there is no real...

    AMD 1700 with a 5700 XT

    Just because Zen 2 was released dosnt all of a sudden make your 1700 bad, the 1700 is still a capable cpu, more than enough for a 5700xt.

    Old PC CPU Upgrade

    you'll will be happy i didn't realize that a q9xxx cpu was the same price as a xeon now so i think you went the right route. i think you will notice a difference mainly down to the extra cache memory that cpu has. as for breaking the push pins on your cooler i have seen them for sale on ebay...

    Old PC CPU Upgrade

    personally i would go the xeon route. i upgraded a system from a c2d earlier this yea and it was able to play far cry 5 with no problems, it had a p5qle motherboard which is worse than yours with the same p35 chipset. adding the xeon cpu codes to the bios is straightforward as this was a thing...

    Ryzen 3900X can't clock 1800MHz Infinity Fabric with 3600 CL14. Disappointed with Ryzen.

    i can tell your not running everything stock. your overclocking everything at the same time then blaming the memory controller. run everything stock then increase your infinity fabric and see if that's stable first. then try tighter memory timings then overclock the cpu. start again from scratch...

    What kind of paint can I buy that will be safe to customize plastic shroud of GPU?

    Have you checked the compatability list for the memory(https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B350-GAMING-PLUS#support-mem-12), some sticks will not work with all slots populated in this motherboard. mixing brands is going to make things more difficult. make sure the memory with the loosest...

    PC hangs while gaming, with loud noise to boot.

    I would defiantly attribute this to a failing psu. corsair's fail like this(is your psu a corsair?), its the circuit protection kicking in, then the pc wont restart unless you turn it off at the switch.
