    The unofficial Cooler Master Hyper 212 series bashing (and defense) thread

    Thanks. I am happy with my Ninja 5 on the 3700x. When I eventually upgrade to a Ryzen 5000 series CPU, I will most likely get higher RPM fans for it. I will test it with the current low rpm fans first though. ;) And just FYI Arctic made the 33 eSports and 34 eSports coolers direct contact (and...

    The unofficial Cooler Master Hyper 212 series bashing (and defense) thread

    I don't hate the 212, I did have one years ago. It's been a while and I don't even remember what CPU I had it cooling. But I wouldn't buy one today. I bought an Arctic Freezer 33 eSports Duo for $35 in 2018 for a Ryzen 5 2600 system. It still works great for that CPU, it was idling at 26c when...

    My RAM doesnt go to 3200 MHz

    What does the Memory tab in CPUz show ? For 3200 it should show 1600 or close to that. 1600 x 2 = 3200. Like this:

    Whats the difference betwen AMD Motherboards?

    They are basically designations for the chipset used on the motherboard: A320 - fairly barebones (for older Ryzen 1000 CPUs) B450 - mid level (for Ryzen 2000, 3000 and 5000 CPUs) X470 - higher end (for Ryzen 2000, 3000 and 5000 CPUs) And the newer ones (developed for better compatibility and...

    MSI Releases Resizable BAR Support BIOS Updates

    I knew my GPU didn't work with Resizable Bar. I updated to get rid of a random restart bug that was caused by the previous BIOS version. I just posted so people would be aware that that option had been added to this MB's BIOS.

    New OS idea: Windows 10 Senior Edition

    Exactly ! I taught a Basic Computing class at a local Community College in the early 90's (when I was a university student) and 90% of my students were 60+. Many of them had never even touched a computer before this class. They were obviously there by choice and wanted to learn. I just had to...

    B550-A Gaming Bios 1401 "New CPU support" What?

    That is BIOS Version 5809 (for my Asus ROG Strix X470-F). Look near the top of that screen shot, it says BIOS Version (on the left side) and 5809 on the right.

    Rtx 3060 ti power supply?

    Not if it is a good quality PSU with a good warranty period. That will give you plenty of Power for future GPU's. My PSU has a10 year warranty so I will be using it through at least one GPU upgrade and possibly 2 GPU upgrades.

    how important is to update the bios?

    Looking at the BIOS notes, I don't see anything that will specifically benefit you. 7C02v35 looks like the best BIOS for your CPU/GPU. So, I agree with the last 2 posts.

    Those should work well and run at 3600 once you enable the XMP profile.

    xmp unstable

    Go for it. Hopefully it will run at 3600 for you with 4 sticks installed. And as far as I know the difference between 4 sticks and 2 sticks isn't enough to matter in most cases. Are you really going to notice a 1-3 FPS difference (and in many games there is Zero difference) ? But running 4...

    Instead of Buying 2 - 16 GB kits ($75x2 = $150), I strongly advise you to buy 1 - 32 GB kit (from your QVL) like this one for $149: Crucial Ballistix 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3600 Desktop Gaming Memory (Black) | BL2K16G36C16U4B | Crucial.com The 2 (4 x 8 GB) kits may or may NOT actually work at...

    Those will work fine (and yes they will be Micron ICs, because Crucial = Micron). And they meet your $75 limit. You should be able to just install them and set the XMP profile and be done.
