Buy a decent case and PSU (650W or better from reputable brand[seasonic, corsair, my two votes]). I would suggest an AMD 550 motherboard, and a Ryzen 3 3100, along with an Nvidia 1650. 16 gb of ddr4 ram dual channel kit, 3200mhz (if you can afford it, get the 3600mhz kit, its the sweet spot)...
intel stock coolers suck, but work.
AMD stock coolers are just fine.
short answer is yes. just use the stock cooler.
long answer, there is a small amount of additional performance and you can make it quieter at the same time, provided you pay for it by purchasing a bigger badder cooler.
Reading some of these posts as well, I just want to point out, we all like to refer to our computers as "fast". They are slow AF. Challenger Hellcat is fast. F22 is fast. Falcon Rockets are fast. Computers don't move. # of operations per second is relative and extremely complex based on...
What I was hoping was that a ryzen 3800 or 3900 might be enough, its a drop in to my current mobo, and if upgrade ram to 32GB I can eliminate a box, while possibly still affording to upgrade my GPU.
I think however I'll treat it as a fun experiment, and not start out as a "this will replace a...
I use this typically. Hasn't failed me yet. Even allows you to dial in your oc.
only time i've ever gotten straight up reboots from gaming has been heat related. Either the CPU or GPU. Could be as simple as a cable caught in a fan causing it to not spin (legit happened).
Oh and should add I once installed a cpu fan blowing the wrong way. That took a really long time to...
The physics behind coil whine are complex. It is possible that your an isolated case where the specific combination of components in your build are interacting negatively. If that's the case I'm afraid Asus might not even respond. Asus has a bad rep around here regarding honouring warranties.
AFAIK all UPSes have power filters, so you should be getting good power, and if it gets bad it should automatically switch over to the battery and inverter.
Keep us posted. Weird sound from PC parts (at least not a fan or HDD).
If that's coming from the GPU power components, wow.
Past experience tells me when PC components start talking like that, expect them to go bye bye soon.
Do you have any way to test your power at the wall? Is it possible your getting dirty power? I've also never heard anything like that...
HDDs make terrible sounds on their way out. Hope you have good back ups.
Psu fans can fail and make terrible noises as well.
Process of elimination is the only way. Start unplugging things.
You can boot your system with your HDD disconnected, you just won't load anything past the bios.
