Use the on screen display to look at your fps and see if it is dropping below 144hz or whatever your monitor refresh rate is. Also what other audio and video problems are you having with your pc? Here's a guide to using the on screen display: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/977649-guide-how-to-setup-msi-afterburner-on-screen-display-using-rtss/
Well, lets start at the basics. What are the issues with audio and graphics are you experiencing? Stuttering can be an issue with low frames, but other people on the forums report stuttering in more cpu intensive games that rely on a single core. Even the 9900K has reported stuttering apparently. Have you used MSI Afterburner to check your fps in games?
If the drive fails then yeah I'll probably replace the A400 with the MX500, but I'll probably only do the 500gb version as everything else fits on my hard drive. Thanks for your recommendation though!
So I have measured the nightstand and have concluded that the amount of space on the stand is enough to hold the case. Also I am only looking to use 2 fans in my pc instead of three, so I can only use the included 200mm fan and my Be Quiet ShadowWings fan.
If you want RGB and can find a supplier that ships it at a fair price, the Thermaltake Versa H18 looks to be a good option as it has subtle RGB here and there. The price on PCPP says its way too expensive because of shipping, so you may want to find another retailer that will supply it. The graphics card is fine for medium 1080p 144fps and High/ultra 60fps. A pair of logitech speakers might do you well, but I usually use headphones so I can't really do a recommendation on that.
I would say for the more graphically demanding games, 60FPS is ok if you want your settings put to high or ultra, but you can always revert to medium settings for more competitive matches and such. Like I said, if you are really hankering for 144FPS on high/ultra, you can upgrade to a 2070 super or 5700XT. keeping 144FPS for 1440p on high settings is very difficult to do without something like a 2080Ti but you may be able to achieve it on medium settings. For now this should do though. If you want too, you can use a 1600AF instead of the 3600 which gives you more room for your graphics card.
https://nl.pcpartpicker.com/list/qZ3qWb So I just realized that you are in the netherlands, so that actually changes up the prices a lot. The build may have to go over budget unless you are willing to skimp out on some parts. If you want to upgrade your gpu in the near future, then I would suggest the RTX 2070 Super or 5700XT. I can redo your parts list a bit here and there to accommodate for your budget, but some things may be underpowered. I would also recommend a mechanical gaming keyboard, but the prices for them on pcpp is a bit expensive, so if you know of one over in the netherlands that is cheaper, do some research on the switches it has and consider that option.
I am not sure about what you want to do with storage, so I decided to op for a 500GB SSD. If you're looking for more storage, then I could do some more workarounds to fit it in. I also had to skimp a bit on the graphics card as your monitor + peripherals reduces the build price to $700. It won't be the best at seriously gpu demanding games at ultra settings, but you said you plan on upgrading your gpu so I went with that.
Besides that your PC is a beauty. Nice job.
I would probably start with going AMD and getting a 3600 + a B450 board. Your Ram would have to go, but you could get a 3600Mhz kit for an extra $70. Your cooler appears to be compatible with am4 though, and it looks like a keeper too. Then if you have the money for it, a graphics card upgrade to a RX 5600XT or maybe a 2060 Super would help it as well. these are suggestions, so do some research before making a final purchase and keep looking around for recommendations.
A lot of people forget that one of the things people look for in a product is reliability. Some people want their things to last.
Oh that must be why. My PC build is here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/38bQwh and I forgot that the cooler may not fit.
If you're asking about the case, then yes, it comes with one rear 120mm fan.
No. When I first built it, I never used raid. I plan on replacing those 2 240GB drives with a 2TB hard drive.
Hey, I remember seeing you on reddit before. Great Build btw.
back when I first built this, I was a PC amateur. I thought of a hard drive as a mere inconvenience and that I wasn't going to use too much space. Because I found out my SSDs are DRAMless, I am planning on reevaluating my storage setup with a 500GB M.2 drive and a 2tb HDD.
I do have a backup for this stuff so I should be okay, but I would like a better storage solution that is less likely to fail.
I am also looking for reliability. I’ve had people say that the reviews for the Sabrent rocket are mixed.
Does the western digital blue also sound good? The price of one is nearly the same as those.
Thank you! Just gotta be more careful when plugging in my pc.
The rx 5700 and 5700 XT are great value cards and will hold you well. If you really want to, you could go for a 2060 Super for ray tracing and such. Also, you can boost performance by getting a 2x16 kit of 3200 MHz ram for much better processor performance. You could also go for a 4x8 kit, but check to make sure your motherboard and processor have quad channel support or else you won’t get more performance. A budget that you have would also be helpful.
Peripherals? Country of origin? OS required? You should probably read the pinned guide to help properly make your parts list.
If you can get into the bios somehow, it is possible you could check and see if your Ram or other components are being detected.
what is your parts list? also have you checked to make sure your graphics card is plugged in?
I don't hear a whisper from it, probably because my Hyper T2 is drowning everything out lmao.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that the RAM was something I already had. That's why it was picked. You could increase price of other parts to accommodate for no RAM.
Oh. I thought it was just one drive. Its possible your Sata power cable is dysfunctional if all your drives run along one single cable.
You might need to get a new hard drive. First, if you have another desktop, test it on that. If not, there are computer stores that would be able to test it. If it’s broken, or you don’t feel like spending money on testing it, then you might wanna get a new drive. See if you can get whatever is on the drive recovered and put onto a flash drive. Then you can store anything you had onto your new drive.
Are you able to get into the bios at all? I believe you are sometimes able to get into it even if you don’t have a certain component
Do you have a usb-cable plugged into your pc from the monitor?
So when you switch up the drives, does the same exact drive not show up or does it just not show whatever drive is plugged in to the port?
Try all the displayports and hdmi ports. You might just have a faulty port
Does it not respond at all when you press power? Or will it do something else when powering on?
What exactly happens when you try to boot? ex. does it not respond at all? Does it respond with a blank screen? Does your motherboard act differently light-wise? do some case fans work while others don't?
What processor do you have?
What temperatures are you getting when you benchmark? What does the screen say when you reboot? Does it boot up normally?
One thing that might not have been mentioned is background programs. I had the same problem once but then I closed a bunch of background programs like autodesk, steam, etc. and I got much better performance.
The model number should be at the back with the number 24 integrated into it along with the year it was released.
What do you have your vga cable plugged into? If it is plugged into your motherboard and you don’t have integrated graphics then it won’t connect to your monitor. It has to be connected to your graphics card.
Shut it down again and see if it does the same thing. If it doesn’t, just monitor it closely. If it does (sooner or later) then try and look at your motherboard debug if it has one.
The stock cooler isn’t that small. Also I’m trying to achieve the best airflow and the case I’m thinking about designing would have thin but long side intake vents and a larger top exhaust vent for the liquid cooler. A stock cooler wouldn’t work as well since there is no exhaust fan. But I will try and look into a pico PSU.
I’ve got that pretty much figured out. I just need to find out how heat resistant 3D printed plastic is
Also a good monitor recommendation would be the dell D2719hgf. It’s a relatively cheap 27” 1080p 144hz monitor that will go for around £150 on amazon and the quality is pretty good.
https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/nkVwtg Just a tad over budget. Storage can always be adjusted. AMD give similar performance at a much lower cost.
The Ryzen 7 may need a tad more power than my Ryzen 5, but if efficiency isn’t what you are looking for, go for it. My graphics card’s recommended PSU is a 450w one so you should be good. If you want to be completely sure, make a parts list of your build and see if it’s in the wattage parameters.
One very important thing when building a pc, Do NOT cheap out on the power supply. Not only does it limit your room for upgrades and lowers efficiency, it can be quite destructive and sometimes dangerous if a capacitor explodes. If you want a cheap power supply, go for the EVGA 400 BR. Much more reliable than the shady one you have.
It might be a possibility. Those CR2032 batteries are very common and are very cheap, so trying that out wouldn't hurt.
Is your 6/8 pin pci-e cable plugged in? Where is your monitor plugged into? What happens when you turn it on?
Check your 8-pin and 24-pin motherboard connectors and see if they are loose.
