Dear lord MSI BIOSes are a mess. I tried to flash my MSI b450 board (also with a 2400g) to the latest version, but it turns out the BIOS file itself was broken, and I had to flash it back with the CPU-less flash option.

Well, just in general. Since Google has such control over the Chromium core, it's only a matter of time before DuckDuckGo results mysteriously start disappearing.

12 or 16 cores are rumoured, and 6 core Ryzen 3s. If that's true then it's time for me to quit school and go get a job.

Forum Topic "Overclocking"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I would personally recommend going through the BIOS to overclock, I just like the control it gives me. My 2400g couldn't hit 4 GHz at that voltage, I have it at 1.400 V at that speed. My temps are a lot worse though, you may have some great silicon there. Just note that my CPU could not hit 4.1 GHz stable, and anything above 4.0 required overvolt protection disabled in the BIOS.

I'm more concerned about Google's censorship and politically-tuned search results myself...

Forum Topic "Does anyone here still use internet explorer?"

Google is now in total control of the vast majority of the browser industry, between Chrome and the Chromium core. Even the Steam Browser is chromium. Luckily we still have Firefox.

Forum Topic "Does anyone here still use internet explorer?"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Yes. I use internet explorer a lot. It has no security function whatsoever. I usually use Firefox, but when a website is broken I use IE to view it anyways.
That is, when I'm using windows. On linux, I always use firefox no matter what.

jamesxali's Completed Build: The Rig

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Can confirm about the case. Stay away from Cooler Master, I have the Masterbox Lite 5 with 3 aftermarket intake fans and my radiator on exhaust with a high static pressure fan and temps are terrible for $70 in fans. Yet somehow with no airflow the dust just keeps piling up. Also the front panel gets scratched way too easily.

Forum Topic "Overclocking Problems"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Liquids can't be compressed, helium remains in a liquid state unless the temperature reaches absolute zero, which is effectively impossible as it would mean a total lack of energy. Helium is the only element known to do this.

Why don't people use a mercury loop? It would take more powerful pumps and one hell of a chiller, but the thermal conductivity is way better than water. And you won't encounter cold bugs.

Forum Topic "Overclocking Problems"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I think liquid helium is preferred because it is a superfluid and never turns solid. Liquid hydrogen could be very cold but the potential for cooling is lower. Also it is flammable. Liquid helium is the primary coolant for ultra-cold (0.015 K) D-Wave quantum computers.

Forum Topic "Overclocking Problems"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

And, my MasterLiquid Lite 120 is cooling my 2400G fine, the 2600 doesn't generate drastically more heat because of its 12nm process.

Forum Topic "Overclocking Problems"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Something like a Corsair H80 would do the trick

Forum Topic "Overclocking Problems"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Stable, yes, but not cool. The 2600's stock cooler (Wraith Stealth iirc) is not good. Even a cheap 120mm AIO would do you a huge favour.

i3 2120, $15 plus shipping if you want. I also have 4gb of DDR3 for $20, but my motherboard stopped working. Radeon HD 3870, $15 plus shipping. FireGL V7700 (same card) $15, Nvidia GTS 250 $15... DDR2 2x2gb $10. I live in Canada so I don't know what shipping will be but I can use Purolator or something. Also I have a bunch of hard drives if you want that I'll give to you to get rid of. Even better if you're in Vancouver too. Also I have an AM3 motherboard, Micro ATX for $10

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

However, it's up to the headphone software where the sounds are coming from. Since a lot of games support 2.0 channel output with a mix of both left and right simulating where the sound is (similar to virtual surround), I can't really see why you need virtual surround.

Forum Topic "Large Capacity HDDs for Everyday Use"

Well, they're not a bottleneck in any way, but a little overkill, as they are meant for constant read and write queues.

Forum Topic "Large Capacity HDDs for Everyday Use"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

WD Golds are meant to last a long time without failure, for servers. Their initial cost is supposed to balance out the long-term replacement cost. I think they come with a 5 year warranty, under heavy server use.
Edit: also WD Blacks are really loud. Just saying, you might want to use headphones for your music if you go that route.

Forum Topic "Can someone do a quick look over for my build?"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

This looks good. One note, I have a MasterLiquid Lite cooler and I cannot vouch for them, you may want to look at something more expensive. Also, for gaming, you may want to look at more GPU at the CPU expense, for example a Vega 56 with a 2600X. Your PSU is slightly overkill, and although that is not a bad thing, you could save a sum of money there. Also, the OEM licenses are not transferable for Windows. Instead you should get a full key. My suggestions are outlined in this build.

Good luck!

I doubt the GPU will take that much power. You're probably fine if you don't overclock.

Just turn them back up in the BIOS. Updates should reset RAM speeds otherwise unstable overclocks would stay if you cleared the CMOS. Some people take a photo of their settings before BIOS updates so they can set everything back after.

For streaming, I recommend this DAC. It's $75 USD, and will provide good enough sound- far superior to any onboard chipset, though a little pricey. The main advantage of X470 is Crossfire and SLI support, and I believe a few extra SATA and USB lanes. B450 is enough for me (I don't even use one GPU, let alone two, I'm using a 2400g). I love the MSI BIOS, and currently have a B450 GAMING PLUS. It's doing great under my heavy overclocks, and I think is sufficient. If there's a small price difference or you like the aesthetics, absolutely go X470 but I think B450 is enough.

Forum Topic "First Build Strange Performance Lost"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

That sounds like something to do with the GPU, the CPU overclocks should be fine. Sounds a lot like my GTS 250, when it would go into 2D graphics mode whenever it decided to. I recommend uninstalling the NVIDIA drivers. Then go into Device Manager (right click on the start button and it should be there), go to Display Adapters, and if your GPU is still listed there, click on it and in the top menu, click Uninstall Device. When it asks you if you want to delete them, click Yes. Then restart your PC, and reinstall the official NVIDIA drivers (nothing that isn't from NVIDIA itself), and restart again. See if that helps :)

Forum Topic "PSA: Freesync On Nvidia GPUs is now possible"

cheezmeister 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Nvidia would then be left with a bunch of angry companies wondering why their monitors were $300 more than the AMD competition and demanding money for pulling that off. Though Nvidia could switch to both standard DisplayPort adaptive sync and G-Sync, and they would then have both Freesync and G-Sync monitors available.

Forum Topic "How do I know if my ram is gonna run at full speed? (Parts in the description)"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I have a B450 motherboard and DDR4-3200 by Team. The RAM runs not only at full speed but at 3333, all settings to AUTO except frequency. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Popular motherboard, popular CPU, good chance it will work. If all goes to hell, you can seek help at modifying the timings and voltage to get to the frequency required. Your GPU should be great at 1080p for streaming those games at max settings.

Forum Topic "First Build Strange Performance Lost"

cheezmeister 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Can I see your system specs, namely your CPU, GPU and monitor? Are you overclocked at all? I assume your monitor is connected with DisplayPort if G-Sync is on. Make sure VSync is off. 20fps is below the range of adaptive sync. What resolution? If it's 4K then it's probably best to turn SSAA off. Turn off GPU overclocks, I know sometimes NVIDIA cards automatically go into 2d mode if they get too hot (not sure about 10 series). Try going to Device Manager, and go to Display Adapters and see if your card is "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter." If it is, reinstall the drivers.

Forum Topic "Dual System Support"

Little late, but you can make the second build list in another saved part list, and add that part list as a custom part to the first list.
