In a few years we will be having real good CPUs from AMD and Intel in our PCs, but niggas will still be on their 970s, 1060s and 580s waiting for the GPU shortage to end

Next round: remove SN550,

Anything else? I added the 11600K as requested from a few threads back, I found it cheaper then the 10400/11400, should we just remove those next? Also the mid-range multicore should be 10850K/5800X.

Built my first PC and surprisingly it's working but I'm having a few issues

>USBs in mobo ports randomly disconnect (yes I installed the latest chipset/drivers for my mobo)
>front of case headphone jack doesn't work (all the other case things like power switch etc are working as well as the mobo headphone port so I doubt I fucked up any connections), yes I installed audio drivers and did all the usual troubleshooting steps - I'm at a loss with this one
>first reboot after setting my RAM speed to 3200 took very long, idk if this is anything wrong but it spooked me
>CPU idle temps are very high (over 52c) however I think I know the cause for this, one of the stock Intel cooler pins got bent so the CPU cooler only has 3 pin sets properly inserted so maybe its nor connecting with the CPU even though the fan is running. I've ordered a new CPU cooler and will see if installing it helps

Any ideas for fixing some of these.

1. known AMD bug. try different ports and turn off the USB disconnect/connect sound notification if that doesnt work (it doesnt actually disconnect).
2. double check the cable and make sure you didnt plug in the AC97 instead of the HD AUDIO connector.
3. because it didnt like the timings and was "training" itself to find some that worked. it's normal feature so you dont have to hard reset the CMOS and redo BIOS settings every time you change a RAM setting when OCing for example.
4. normal AMD behaviour because of how the idle volt works, basically it's in "ready mode" in case system calls to increase clock speed suddenly. if you're using stock then an aftermarket cooler will drop it about 10C i reckon.

no, because it doesnt detect anything plugged into the front, it wont turn off the back ports. they are separate.

>USBs in mobo ports randomly disconnect (yes I installed the latest chipset/drivers for my mobo)
Not sure what this could be about, but I'd first try doing a clean install of windows and if it still not works, get a refund for the motherboard
>front of case headphone jack doesn't work
probably because you either didn't plug in the audio cables for the front header or you connected them incorrectly. They're loose small cables, and I personally have never been able to connect them correctly without consulting the motherboard manual so it's understandable if you got it wrong somehow. The fact that the power/reset button or even hdd activity light are working doesn't indicate you plugged them in correctly, check again.
>first reboot after setting my RAM speed to 3200 took very long, idk if this is anything wrong but it spooked me
memory training, absolutely normal
>CPU idle temps are very high (over 52c) however I think I know the cause for this, one of the stock Intel cooler pins got bent so the CPU cooler only has 3 pin sets properly inserted so maybe its nor connecting with the CPU even though the fan is running.

hope you didn't order another intel stock cooler, because they're pretty shit even for the price. You can get a hyper212 for like $20 new and if you look for used shit you could find same or better for less and get miles better cooling

Thoughts? About to pull the trigger on these parts in a few weeks.
Mainly play old + low end games and the odd AAA game on low settings at 1440p.
Costs about £450 as I already have the GPU + PSU. Could go under budget by £50 and get a 10105f + B560M or over budget by £50 and get a 3600.

I have a 6700xt in a mATX case and it's getting a little toasty, my GPU gets to 88°C during gaming, I fear of what's going to happen when ambient temps go higher later this year (it's winter right now). I can put 3 120mm fans or 2 140mm fans, but with 3 12mm fans I can't get one to point directly at the GPU, but maybe more airflow is always better?

So
what's better, 3 120mm or 2 140mm (with one 140mm pointing directly at the GPU)?
What are the best 140mm fans? Noctua?

When I tried to play fallout 4 years ago it kept shutting off my computer, while my friend with his "gaming" laptop suffered no problems whatsoever. After searching for a fix I was told that either my computer over heated or it pulled too much power both possible. So now I have been "futureproofing"/compensating for both issues by getting a beefy fan and psu. But im willing to lower it to a 750 if you think 850 psu is too much because I've been going back and forth on it all day to be honest.

i can vouch for it being shit. last month i was building 2 PCs with it. one with 11600k and one with 11400f. the 11600k was idling at 45-50c with around 25 ambient and instantly crashing with stock boosts when i run cinebench or anything similar. thought it might have been a faulty unit so i put the other one on it and it was the same shit. tried reseating, even different kind of paste, same shit no matter what i did. got a noctua nh-d15 and now it idles at 30 and overlocks without any problems.
the 11400f is idling at around 40 with it but it's good enough since i don't overclock or run anything heavy on that box.

Yeah that's the safe route. Your other alternatives are to find the same type of pins (which may take even longer than an RMA if you have to order them from China) or to install an aftermarket heatsink. The B550 chipset only puts out something like 5W so something like pic rel should do the trick. With a good thermal tape and next day delivery you could have it up and running in 24 hours.

I have discovered that a sound card in 2k + 21 is not a meme

I changed my mobo yesterday, and using the mobo audio is noticeably tinnier and worse through my Philips Fidelio X1s. In games.

Astounded honestly. I've thought this sound card was boomer snake oil for 4 years.

I hope so. I have no interest at all in the windowed variant. High airflow with moderately quiet fans and 180mm/200mm fans are something I've been looking for in a case for a long time now that Silverstone pretty much offers no stock of their fortress FT-02 case.

hello, corsair 100r retard here
I was about to buy Fractal Define R5 as a better case to put a lot of HDDs in. People praise it for being quite silenced, but I've done a quick search and there are some complaints about HDD vibrations causing buzzing. Should I buy or no buy it? I don't want to be glueing sponges/foam to the case like I do with 100R to alleviate the noise.

If you where going to buy a pre-built gaming PC right now (like of newegg), what would you buy?
>price range
$2500 - with $500 wiggle room, would like to stay under 3500
I know buying pre-built is anathema here, but I am kinda brain fucked, I have severe anxiety issues over building it myself (in the physical adding of the parts to the tower) and with all the covid bullshit it's easier for me to just shell out the extra cash.
