Can the MSI B450M Mortar motherboard support four sticks of 8GB of DDR4-2666 memory (for a total 32GB) when paired with a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU?
Last week I built my first PC with a GIGABYTE X570 Aorus motherboard. I was able to get the machine to boot and install Windows 10 on my Corsair MP600 along with all the drivers available, but I still have an issue; my Crucial MX500 SSD isn't being detected, it does show in BIOS though.
What am I missing?
I'm currently running an ASUS Prime Z390 with a 1TB Samsung Evo Plus in the top M.2 slot.
My question is if I would like to add an additional M.2 drive, should it be the same make, model, and size?
I want to know what the absolute best CPU air cooler is in terms of performance that balances both temperature and noise well.
I'm a streamer that currently uses my old build as a dedicated streaming PC. However, my gaming PC starts messing up every once in a while, with USB ports and slow load times so i think i need to replace my motherboard on that.
What would be the best decision for me? Is it worth keeping my CPU or should i upgrade that too? If i build a high-end Ryzen system, would i be able to get rid of my streaming PC, and keep the quality streams? Is it worth upgrading my GPU or should i wait for the next generation?

Thanks in advance!
I'm about to build a system with an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU.
I'm wondering which motherboard to get, ASUS TUF B450-Plus Gaming or MSI B450 Tomahawk? Is it worth going with an MSI X570-A Pro?
I'm having an issue with my PC where it idles pretty high and starts throttling immediately when put under load. I'm using my H115i from my old build, is it possible the cooler can't handle the 9900K?
Should I just buy another cooler? I can pick up a H150i or Noctua NH-D15 locally.
I have had my current build for two years - ASUS Z270, Intel Core i7 7700K, 16GB of RAM, and GeForce GTX 1060.
I'm getting bored with it and want to upgrade. Can I get a better CPU without changing motherboard?
SSDs slow down as they get filled with data, so I was wondering if there any percentage of the drive I should leave unused to keep my drive working at full speed?
I have an 850 EVO 250GB.
I'm wanting to build a new gaming rig and I'm having a hard time choosing between the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and the new AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics cards.
Right now I'm using a 27-inch 1080p 60Hz monitor but want to buy a new 1440p 144Hz gaming monitor, and can't decide which graphics card to go for. I play all of the latest esports-style games like CS:GO, League of Legends, Rocket League, Apex Legends, and Overwatch.
