2933 pretty much means 3000
and yes, the ram ran at full speed
without using chemical ways of cooling, you can't go below your ambient room temperature using air (both normal and liquid) cooling
wow ur so funny xddddddddDDDDDD
No, but you can just remove the fans
super strange. you could try RMA'ing / returning 'n replacing the motherboard straight off, since that's the most likely candidate.
Don't forget some sort of graphics card, since the Ryzen 9 3900x doesn't have integrated graphics
parting out is much much much more variable on the pricing, depending on where you're located, shipping costs, etc
Clean it up, reinstall windows, could get $400-$500-ish out of it
What country are you in? Part availability is different depending on where you're located
What country? Do you need WiFi / Bluetooth connectivity or is Ethernet fine? Do you need mouse / keyboard / monitor / speakers / headset / etc, or something specific? What is your total budget?
Yeah, I'd go with the Pro M, great case, great airflow, great quality
how about another meshify c?
I may be willing to buy it for $10 - $15 maybe on Saturday, not too sure
I linked the 2400G because it has direct comparisons between it's APU and the GT 1030. The 2400G being the same as the 3400G, aside from the CPU aspect being 12nm instead of 14nm. That, and the direct comparison was done by a very well known and reputable site. I did check facts, and had an educated guess based on the facts of it all.
Also, the 1030 can be overclocked, the 3400G can be overclocked (with a b450 or better board).
Oh wow, nevermind then. Never knew the 3400G's APU is at GT1030 / GTX 750ti level now, lol. Sorry. Next time be sure to link benchmarks right out the gate, instead of doing the back and forth "no it's not" + insulting, before you got to link it. Would've saved us some time.
Provide them then. You have yet to provide any proof for yourself. Show me how the 3400G supposedly is better than the GT 1030.
The difference between the 2400G and 3400G is 1-3fps, since they both use the exact same APU. The only difference between the two, is that the 2400G is running 14nm, and the 3200G is running 12nm.
I mean, a quick google search and looking at benchmarks proves ya wrong, buddy. I literally linked you one, lol. Repeating yourself won't make you right.
Yes it is. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3261-r3-2200g-r5-2400g-review-gaming-benchmarks-vs-gt-1030 Regularly, the GT 1030 beats the R3 2200G / R5 2400G APU's, and only ever get close with an extensive overclock + very high speed RAM, both of which being very expensive in a budget build.
Nope, the GT 1030 is better.
For doing music + 3D rendering work, the 8core 16thread Ryzen 7 2700 is definitely worth it over the 6core 12thread, first generation, Ryzen 5 1600. Only get the Ryzen 5 1600 if you're on a very tight budget.
For 900CAD + monitor, you're not going to get 60+fps and Ultra in most games, sorry. Especially with the 3000G, that'll hinder you extremely.
R5 2600 instead, better mobo for like 50 cents more, better SSD for the same price, 1650 Super instead, 50 cents more for the same case with tempered glass, better PSU, same monitor, and some fans. In the future, you can easily upgrade the GPU / CPU if you need more performance, but starting out with this ~900CAD budget (technicaly 700CAD with the monitor), you're not going to get 60+fps and Ultra in most games.
PCPartPicker Part List
Ryzen 7 2700 instead, cheaper but near equal motherboard, much better SSD, 1650 Super instead of the RX 570, cheaper but still extremely good PSU, and a pack of PWM case fans since the case only comes with 1 fan.
Ignore this list, actually. Didn't notice the Ryzen 5 2600 has price-hiked. Swapped for an i5 9400f, Arctic Freezer 33 cooler, and an Asrock B365M motherboard
better mobo, same price ram with heatspreaders, better ssd, rx 580 8gb instead of an rx 570 4gb, better case, leaves about ~75 bucks budget for taxes and shipping costs
Horrendously terrible list, hope it's a meme
Sweet! Prices aren't on there yet for some reason, hopefully they will soon lol
Wow nice, thanks!
Lol, thanks! I've been noticing these slowly trickling into the system! :)
What temperatures are you getting with the passive cooler, when under full load? (If you don't know, just download Aida64 and run it for like 10-30mins)
Your best options would be the B450 Steel Legend and the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC. The Aorus Pro does not have an addressable RGB header.
I'd go with the B450 Steel Legend, unless if you're fine with the cost.
Assuming you don't need mouse / keyboard / WiFi / Bluetooth
Here you go. $500 budget, good CPU for budget multitasking, 3000mhz 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD, good compact case, great budget PSU, Quadro P620 since it has 4 mini-DisplayPort connections and is Nvidia, and it's worth spending $10 extra for the fans, so some air gets into the case and keeps everything cool.
Should fit your needs 100% perfectly.
mesh does tend to introduce more dust, but thats only because the case has much more, better airflow, than closed-off front cases. You can always buy 120mm fan filters if you need them
I already know about that, fine by me!
Since I use the word "budget build" meaning "low cost pc", it's about ~$1000 USD or less

Don't care as long as they don't look like a clown / don't look like they're trying to set a world record p much
The 3600 would be a better buy, due to it's gaming benefits, and it's still 6core 12thread which is absolutely no slouch at editing either. Just be sure to get a MSI B450 MAX series board or a good X570
Lol, practice makes perfect
Never ever cut cables on a PSU. Very very very bad idea, could easily cause short circuits to happen, like, PSU-ruining ones, along with taking out other stuff that's plugged into your PSU if you don't have a high quality unit.
Some PSUs do have longer cables than others. Doesn't mean you shouldn't try managing the cables :P The trick is to just fold the cables up in a 2D-spring like pattern, then velcro strap. Works absolute wonders with managing!
There is no opening at the top. But, like I said, if you read my comment, top opening =/= airflow, mesh front = airflow. Top mount PSU just doubles as another exhaust. However, that doesn't change the fact that the case has extremely good airflow for it's price. Plus, it doesn't use insanely cheap metal, the fan doesn't suck, and the PCIe slots are not the cheap break-away type. It's a great case. The Cougar is too, don't get me wrong, just you'd need 1-2 more fans to really take advantage of the Cougar case's airflow. The Fractal Design one does amazingly well with it's single included fan.
I also have a non-modular PSU, but the cabling was done well. Just be smart and you can cable manage in any PC :P Here's a photo: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/513794914182627331/673306653139009536/IMG_20200131_203405.jpg https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/513794914182627331/673306653541793792/IMG_20200131_203555.jpg
I have the case IRL, the airflow is extremely good. Even with my Arctic F12 at about ~800rpm, it moves a bunch of air inside the case, I can feel cool air blowing out of the side panel, and it being slightly windy inside of the case. The cable management is fine if you know what you're doing too.
Top opening =/= airflow, mesh front = airflow.
Also if he could afford, the CX550 is a better option than the CXM450. CX550 is the same price, and higher quality than the CXM units. (The CX units are a newer refresh, and higher quality.)
that case too if he wants
Cheaper but equal CPU, great board for future upgrading, cheaper RAM, 480gb SSD, used RX570, great airflow and quality budget case, and the same PSU
