PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
This will give you plenty of power. Lots of headroom for overclocking and a ton of RGB. Have fun!
As I said up above, the cheapest you can get without going the bare minimum. I'm in the US.
No, I will have something else to read drives. It is for solid media playback.
No, once you get up into 75 or 80 degrees then you should start getting a little worried. 70C is probably fine if you have a decent cooler.
As for your GPU, that can go a little higher, probably around 85 until you should start worrying.
If you do want to be safe, clean off the thermal paste off the cooler and the CPU, and reapply it with a pea-sized drop directly in the center.
He can just use a KMS key. So far it's worked well for me.
Ok, so use the m2 for boot and apps, and do the 12TB drives in RAID 10, then. Don't use the m.2 for RAID, as this will slow down the speed of it (HDDs are much slower than NVMe).
Go into GeForce experience and try to update your driver. It also could be your monitor, do you have another one to test with?
He can just use a KMS key from windows...
Try updating your drivers. That can be an issue sometimes.
No, you won't have to reinstall it. If you want to upgrade you'll have to get the media creation tool and upgrade the pc.
Yes. Raid is going to be good unless you have an m.2 ssd. Do it in a RAID 10, as this will stripe with parity and also mirror, making faster speed, easier restoration if drives are lost, and distribute data across the drives (a bit hard to explain, it doesn't copy all the data on all drives).
Doesn't matter, CPU's can be faulty right out of the box. All parts can be. Just try to check temps.
Check your temps under load. It might be that the CPU is heating which is causing it to shut down.
Voltages to post:
Ok... Check voltages with Open Hardware Monitor to make sure that they're stable. Post them here.
Yes, try enabling XMP.
Have you updated your drivers to the latest GPU drivers?
Try resetting your CMOS.
I was reading the use and right next to it, it said: Use (gaming, rendering, etc) so I just thought that's what he was using it for.
Yeah, have you never seen any of the admins here tell someone that?
Aaaaand... there we go. That's why you don't mention stuff like that. Cuz Inigo Montoya's gonna bust you
Hmmm.... they should only spin when the PC first boots up, like when you press the power button. That should be it. Otherwise, they won't spin until something is using it. Try updating the driver.
No, even with two on the same graphics card, you might have to do it. Just try it...
Ok in that case, boot off the USB, then you can see all the drives connected and the files on them.
That's an illegal way to buy a Windows 10 key...
No, some bios settings force integrated graphics. They'll need to turn it to PCI/PCIE.
You most likely don't have a speaker on the motherboard or with the front panel headers. So, try replacing your RAM. That is often a major problem. The CPU is almost never the problem.
Format a USB stick, download Windows 10 media creation tool, run it and install the files on the USB stick. Plug the USB stick into the computer, then go into your bios on the non-working computer and change the boot order so that it will boot from the USB stick first. Also, set the primary boot device to USB-HDD or FDD just in case. After you have booted up windows, move the OS to the HDD or SSD with something like EaseUS partition master. Then change the boot order back to the HDD or SSD, and boot from there.
Disable Superfetch: Press the keys Win+R and type services.msc. Scroll down until you find superfetch and right click on it. Click properties, then change it from manual or automatic to disabled.
Disable Windows Search: Use the instructions above to disable Windows Search.
Reboot your system.
Yes, the B350 motherboards are not compatible but the B450's have a bios update for the Raven Ridge CPUs. So it will work.
The system will work.
If you put an incompatible CPU in, it will boot and make constant high then low frequency beeps. That is the POST error code for a faulty CPU. It is the PSU probably, since nothing else seems to be working.
Unplug your motherboard power header, the one with 20 or 24 pins. Flatten a paper clip and bend it in half. Put one end of the paper clip in the slot with the green wire, and the other end into an adjacent slot with a black wire. Plug in the PSU and turn it on. If the PSU fans don't spin, you have a faulty PSU. If they do, you still should look at getting a new one as it might not be providing power to the rest of the system.
What he means is: Sometimes even if you have a disk drive, the OS might be corrupt, faulty, or might not be readable by the system. So try booting from a USB drive instead.
Try to find some setting for your games and NVIDIA driver about using the GPU for 3D games/rendering. It might be using the CPU. Either that, or turn down the settings of the game.
If none of those work, or you don't like the settings, press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open up task manager, and end background tasks from other apps that you've opened.
Ah.... I had this problem when I accidentally unplugged a SATA cable from the motherboard. Turns out it was a faulty motherboard, BUT, try resetting your CMOS first. If that doesn't work, it's most likely your motherboard. That will go bad before the CPU will. Try replacing it, and if it doesn't work then return it and get a new CPU.
No. Fans on the GPU are off unless it needs cooling, like if you're playing games or GPU rendering, etc. The computer will not freeze up, but if the fans aren't spinning and the GPU overheats, then yes, the computer will shut down.
Ok, try booting into safe mode with command prompt and type the following: chkdsk /f /r /x, then press y to confirm the disk check. Let it run for a while. It will take a long time depending on how many files you have. Expect at least an hour or so.
I actually had a part list with the RX 580 8GB, so here you go.
Huh... I tried searching it up the other night and it said dual channel... I do not know what I was looking at then. But if you're buying that one, then yes, definitely go with 4 sticks.
The cooler will be fine. Yes, I realize that, but I don't know how to convert it to GBP.
1000 GBP is around 1320 USD
Ok. Yes, quad channel motherboards are very hard to come by, and yours isn't a quad channel, it's dual channel so there will be a performance hit if you fill all four RAM slots. Good to know about the monitors.
You know that's not a complete system at all and won't run, right? You'll need a PSU, SSD/HDD, and a case (if you don't want to have parts everywhere).
Otherwise, looks fine to me! Have fun building it. That's gonna be a beast of a PC.
Yup, it will not work by default. There is a bios setting for the ASRock B450 Pro4 somewhere (you'll have to find it, so dig around in the bios) for dual monitor support or multi monitor support. It is set to disabled by default, so you'll have to enable it.
Intel is better than AMD for gaming, so I went with the all-popular i5-8400 paired with an RTX 2070 from MSI. A fast 1TB SSD will ensure fast boot times and application times, and the 16GB of RAM will be great for today's tasks.
Look at this: https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-anniversary-update-keeps-freezing-heres-how-fix-problem
I just searched up "windows freezes after logging in" and there are a lot of results. Try some of them. Maybe it'll fix your problem.
It's most likely not your hardware, as everything boots normally. Everything is compatible and you're getting enough power through... So try the link and the search above and LMK what happens after!
Definitely agreed. Also, he should have put an ATX mobo or a mATX case.
