A good 550W/650W psu would also be plenty for this build but overall it looks great to me.

could be useful when it has rgb so you can sync those parts but otherwise it's not important in my view really.

yes you can still asus aura when you go with the ASRock b450m pro 4 mobo. That mobo doesn't have rgb anyway.

A full loop just adds a pump and fans for the rad so not much. A good 550W-650W is plenty for your build.

If you want to use that inbuild vrm cooling on the mobo you will have to go for a custom loop.

It's a decent psu for the the pc you have.

You can always get better ofcourse but you will also pay more. Decision is yours.

It's all in the manual.

You can use your mobo if it has the right connector to control the lights or use the included rgb controller:

Hold the button to turn on or off the lights according to the manual

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First RGB build PSU Help"

  • 14 days ago
  • 1 point

A good 650W (even 550W really) would be enough for your build. The current psu you have in your list is one of the best (if not the best) you can buy right now. But ofcourse all depends on what is your budget for this psu?

For rgb my guess will be that you will need 2 programs to run them all (i don't think there is one for all of them)

So for the ram, keyboard, mouse, cooler, fans and the case fans is't corsair icue.

For mobo and gpu it's msi own rgb program (i think it's called mystic light). It could also be that mystic light will see the ram not sure about that tho.

Most SSDs implement thermal throttling as a safety feature if a drive gets too hot. The closer your drives gets to the 70ºC limit that most manufacturers have, the more likely it is that the drive will start slowing down to prevent itself from failing.

Just look it up ;)

if it reaches 70c the drive will just throttle to lower the temps.

Isn't there a cable with this cooler that allows to connect those 3 fans to 1 cable that connects to the cpu fan header?

Manual says Connect each fan to the shrouded 4 pin connectors on the pump

AMD looks great just broke all time high = bullish.

Intel and Nvidia will probably retest their own all time highs in the next couple weeks/months.

Overall markets are very bullish and it's just an amazing time for traders and stockowners. How long will it last? Don't know.

There is no need but i personally always liked to seperate my stuff. So for example i have a 250GB ssd just for the OS and some smaller programs, 1 750GB ssd for games and 2 1TB ssd's for important stuff.

And besides that an external hdd for back ups.

All of that is just personal preference.

At this moment you are limited because of the igpu from that 2400g so the 1660 super will be a huge upgrade and will give you a noticable difference in performance. Then just save up for a better cpu and you are set. Otherwise with $300 you will get a medicore cpu and a medicore gpu which you probably will want to upgrade again in the future.

I would just recommend a btter psu with longer warranty like https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WxL48d/corsair-rm-2019-650-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020194-na has 10 years warranty and is a great psu.

I don't see your monitor in the list https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/ so i would say freesync won't work with your nvidia gpu.

That fan should work yes but if you want good quality and silent (depends on rpm ofcourse) fans i would recommend the corsair ml 120 pro or Noctua NF-F12 PWM.

If its this case http://anidees.com/product/ai-crystal-cube-ar/ put it towards the glass. Psu isn't fully against the glass so should still pull air according to the link.

Use a splitter with header cha1 and a splitter with header cpu_opt.

Or like you said it's possible to run 4 fans with a fanhub or 4way splitter from cha 1 since manual says The Chassis Fan Connector supports the chassis fan of maxi-mum 1A (12W) fan power while the nf a12x15 Max. input power 1,68 W (times 4 is 6,75) and Max. input current 0,14 A (times 4 is 0,56) according to https://noctua.at/en/products/fan/nf-a12x25-pwm/specification .

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Help with new motherboard please"

  • 27 days ago

you will see alot of codes since the mobo will go through them all to check if everything is ok. It could be that the system will boot up several times for the first time.

If everything is ok with your first boot the first thing you should see is "No Bootable Device found press Fx to go to bios" or something. Just plug in your usb or disk for W10 reboot and then follow the steps to install Windows10 or whatever Operating System you intent to use.

No. Just install the cpu and before installing the cooler take a piece of paper and use some isopropyl alcohol to wipe the heat spreader (top of the cpu) clean.

I really need to know what cpu's those are. Is it a ryzen 5 3600? or a 2400g? anything else? I can't recommend anything if i don't know what cpu's those are.

All I have in the computer right now is the CPU, Motherboard, and Powersupply.

you also need atleast 1 stick of ram to try to boot.

Msi afterburner can't know how much psu power usage is because the RMx isn't connected with any monitoring cable so what msi afterburner is showing is simpy false.

750W is plenty for your build. 550W would also be plenty.

You said you have also another cpu what cpu is it?

Also what ryzen 5 cpu do you have?

Disconnect all storage. Keep only 1 RAM stick. make sure all cables are installed correctly. Make sure the gpu is seated correctly so take it out and install it again. ALso try different cables for monitor like hdmi or displayport.

Take out the gpu from mobo and install again. also Disconnect all storage. Keep only 1 RAM stick. If that doesn't work try another pcie slot for the gpu. If you have another gpu you can try that to. ALso try different cables for monitor like hdmi or displayport.

It could also be that you have an early bios version then it won't be boot because of the newer cpu.

There is nothing in your part list link. Would be good to know what parts you use and what that other cpu is that you have. Updating a bios is very simple. If in the future you manage to boot you go into bios and check the current bios number you are on. Then go to the manufacturer website of that mobo go to support (probably) and then download if needed the latest bios. put it on a USB stick go into bios again and install it.

Thats the short version but can tell more if i know what mobo and parts you are working with.
