My PC has i9-9900x processor and motherboard with X299 chipset and socket lga2066. I heard about the next Intel i9-10980XE processor 10th generation processor that uses the X299 chipset and socket lga2066.
Does that mean I can upgrade my processor to this 10th generation processor?
I recently upgraded to an SSD and used the Windows Tool to install my OS directly to the drive. Since then, my OS offers options upon boot-up between Windows 10 and Windows Setup. Can I remove this, or will it be there forever?
Purchased a brand-new ASUS X570 F motherboard with CPU, Memory etc. all new.
My problem is the system, while in stand-by will randomly turn on for a few minutes and turn itself back off. Even if it comes out of standby and I start using it browsing the web, watching video etc. it will still go back to standby after that same five minutes. I tried disabling WOL to no avail, what gives?
What is the best Graphics Card, and I mean the best "supped-up" "melt-my-face" Graphics Card I can slap into my Compact Case, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90P?
Right now, it has an AFOX 2GB GT730 DDR3 128bit Low-Profile Graphics Card and it appears to be worn out and causing some weird hieroglyphic-like glitches to appear on my screen from time to time. So, a replacement should be in line. I just want to know, is the current Graphics Card I have the best my PC can handle? Or can it take something even better, or even the best? Please help GPU experts. I can't even play PUBG without Lego-like glitches falling all over my screen.
I just finished replacing my CPU going from an AMD Ryzen 2600 to a Ryzen 3800X. I've always known AMD platforms to be a pain when removing the CPU, normally resulting in bent CPU pins.
So, I decided to try the twist method. To my luck, I was twisting and pulling and a few seconds later the CPU popped out with two rows of bent pins! What did I do wrong, I was using AS5?
I'm looking for a gaming monitor under the price of $85 and have found two which I think are good but I'm unsure how to compare.
The first model is the BenQ GW2283 and the second model is the LG 22mk430h. Please do help me with this I usually play competitive games like Rainbow Six Siege and been wanting to look for one that's good. Note - I'm using a gaming laptop right now to play games (ROG GL503GE)
I just bought the new X570 Aorus Elite mobo with Ryzen 2700. I had 2 kits of RAM 2x4GB 3200Mhz and others 2x4GB 3200Mhz, both are Corsair Vengeance LPX but bought them separately. If I enable profile XMP in BIOS I get random blue screens. I put timings manually (16-18-18-18-54) and voltage is set to 1.35. Still having same problems, or games random crash too. I would like to get any tip to get them more stable, or should I buy new kits?
I currently have a Corsair Obsidian 500D SE chassis outfitted with the included 3x LL120 RGB fans in the front and want to add a fan in the rear for exhaust. I purchased an SP120 to do this, but after installing, the fan spins but the RGB doesn't work, what gives?
I have a G20CB prebuilt from ASUS and i've been wanting to see what I can do to upgrade it. I'm looking at changing out the GPU and RAM as I currently have a single stick of memory that's 16GB and a GTX 1080. I would like to upgrade the memory to at least 16GB dual channel and possibly the GeForce 2080 Super so I can hit 60FPS consistently at 1440p. Is my PC compatible with a 2080 Super and if so, do I have to buy an ASUS GPU? Also, what kind of RAM is compatible with my system?
I'm building a new machine and decided on the AMD Ryzen 3700X. However, I just looked and the 2700X is now $240 vs. the 3700X at $330.
I know the 2700X is enough for my computing needs however I wonder if getting the 3700X will set me up better for the future since I do some video editing work. Is it worth it with the almost $100 price difference?
