    Question Is this Build Compatible?

    Because tomorrow is Black Friday I've decided to rush into getting, at the very least, the 3 most expensive components for my new PC build. I've built a desktop for gaming before but it was over 5 years ago so needless to say I'm a bit rusty with compatibility. I've been using PCPartPicker and...

    Question Faulty 3070

    I have been struggling with my new build lately. So my new build pc would randomly shut down at idle and while gaming, i can “trigger” the shutdown by running need for speed heat. Everytime it would load the pc shuts off. I replaced my 650W with a 850W psu and still my pc would shutdown. I...

    Question Best CPU for RTX 3070?

    I have an Intel Core i5-8400 and an RTX 3070 and I'm noticing that in some games (like Call of Duty Cold War) the CPU it's at 70-99% usage while the GPU sticks at 50-70%. It seems like it is bottlenecking, and I would love to change my CPU in order to avoid that bottleneck, but without spending...

    Question 650W to weak for rtx 3070

    So i recently build a new pc (see specs below) and it would shut down when idling and playing games. During need for speed heat (gpu ~99% and cpu ~80% usage) my 650W PSU would draw 710W and evantually shut down. I’m confused tbh because everyone suggests a 650W psu for my specs... pc specs...

    Question Upgrade my CPU or Monitor for 3070

    So I picked up an RTX 3070FE and was wondering if I should upgrade my CPU or monitor first for Christmas. The other one will be upgraded eventually, but I am trying to figure out which one is more pressing. I currently have a Ryzen 5 2600 and a 1080p 144hz G-Sync monitor. If I were to upgrade...

    Question What's the difference between the rtx 3070 Rog strix and the tuf?

    I'm currently looking at the rtx 3070 series for my new build and I'm very fond of Asus. The only problem is that I think the Rog strix one looks better than the Tuf, but i can't see why it's so much more expensive. Where i live i have to pay over 100$ more for the Rog strix.

    I have just replaced my PSU, CPU cooler and GPU. I tested the system with the iGPU once I put the new CPU cooler on and it was working fine. When I plugged in the graphics card it boots up to a black screen. I tested my old GPU in the system and I'm getting the same fault, despite it working...

    Question Low PC power use

    I decided to measure the amount of Watt my pc draws with an electricity usage monitor ( out of curiosity). And when playing games my pc would draw 260 Watt max. This seems very strange to me because everywhere i would see the suggested PSU is 650W butt it only uses up to 260W when measuring...
