This, and if this is a system I plan to keep in play for a long time I try to do a test mount and do a visual inspection of how this looks (I know would need a microscope, but you can get a decent idea of what is happening).
It fits the lian li tu150 just barely, also mine was severely uneven and needed lapping to make flat. Otherwise keeps a 9700 non k super chilly even at sustained load and quiet. I really dig the ml fans and worth the cost for those inmho.
Honestly unless you need more cores(9900k?), you are looking at a very minimal bump as everyone above suggests. Luckily cases do not appear to be price inflated as much as the other pc components. Z390 mobos are super inflated, as are psu's and gpus, but a 3080 will give you the most bang for...
Honestly the i7 10700 is right in that range and a beast for $. 8c16t right around 225$, beats a 3600 and better value than 5600 and slots in the new 1200 boards. Since the 5xxx apu's are oem only I would bet they will be way over priced like the 4xxx apu's. At the very least unless you have a...
Honestly not sure you will see a huge performance on 1 and 2. Nvme can however give you a huge boost so at 6gbps you are effectively limited to 550mb\s vs pcie 3 nvme which can hit over 2gb\s. It really depends where you bottlenecks are though if you get a tangible increase. Personally I would...
Yeah run plex on my roku ultra fine 9ver wifi even, prime, netflix, disney have yet to have trouble with speed. Now time to time there does appear to have audio picture sync issues but that is a well documented issue.
I'm if I recall correctly with those boards you have to crank up the voltage to get dual channel, and sometimes the memory controller or north bridge voltage like .1 volt or so then set the timings right.
I would think the psu has overload rail shutdown, but if you have a spare unit it would be good to try out. also maybe try unplugging the psu form wall for 30min. If not that then look for blown fuses on mobo.
I remember this store was awesome I think next to a similar store called Ebx, would get random games from here.
That being said I personally hate physical media these days, so if gamestop, microcenter, best buy or who ever could somehow figure out how to be price competitive with pc hardware...
Looks like you have a Realtek ALC1220, maybe make sure latest drivers and there is not anything funky with case front audio ports. If you Either unplug HD audio cable or disable front audio plug in detection in drivers. I had similar issue on my case where it would jump around.
In regards to VR have any of you messed with dolphin VR, I could not get it fully working but Mario sunshine and metroid prime games are awesome, not sure if they had a starfox game though.
Also so many games from these lists I have missed to add to back library.
I think you can use wired for network and wifi for display no problems. Something like https://www.amazon.com/Cudy-WE3000-3000Mbps-Wireless-Bluetooth/dp/B082NZYDDM/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=ax200+wifi+card&qid=1616035239&sprefix=Ax200&sr=8-4
Or some variation on Intel Ax200 would work...
What about miracast, try going to display settings and wireless display, and assuming you have the right wifi on pc and smart TV it should find it. You may need to pull view port to that display, and will be a little latency but at least people in room should be able to see.
For my opinion I would suggest finding a quality low voltage cable installer, we have a company at work that will do drops from server room to many floors for $100 a pop. Question though can you get a cable from upstairs to down stairs under 100ft say maybe just stapling to the base boards...
I would guess on stock it is close to 250w on the 12v rail to run, I have had luck in the past with a 7970 ghz( same gpu i believe) dropping voltage and getting a better power draw, so you are probably good with that psu.
I am not knocking ewaste resuse, but from a hassle of finding a older functional board (rememder capacitor issues plaged this time period) and the total parts might be a challenge and more costly than above linked board. Heck if you are wiling to abandon x86 maybe a raspberry pie 4 or other soc...
So like something like this https://www.amazon.com/2974Mbps-Bluetooth-Ultra-Low-802-11AX-Dual-Band/dp/B07Y2MYK4N/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=intel+ax201&qid=1615918961&sr=8-6 if you wanted to widi/ miracast route from pc. Note there are a bunch of ways to go here as the cards are m.2 pcie with...
What kind of tv do you have as it might already have an app built in? Example my pc has a intel wifi ax200 and if you go to display setting win 10, connect to wireless display it can pickup Vizio or samsung tvs as a partner.
Jackel arcade (mame)
Raptor f22 best side scroller pc
Sam and max (scrumm)
Any civilization (3 is best)
Super Mario rpg snes
Shining force 2 (Genesis)
Mike Tyson punch out
Dune (one after Red Alert pc)
Which chip do you have, but basically if i could accelerate h264 I would assume you would be golden. Something like this might blow it away though : https://www.newegg.com/asrock-j4125b-itx-mini-itx/p/N82E16813162002?&quicklink=true
If you have arc on tv to the receiver it should forward that input through the tv to the receiver. So in this setup you have your stuff plugged to tv and forwards to receiver, however you can also have all your devices on receiver and forward to tv input. Honestly the easiest way is like...
I am guessing either price or stock is limiting you? If stock well who could have guessed they would have 4 product launches of 7nm stuff that would sell out no matter what volumes they produce? I mean GPU dies, zen 3, and consoles. But I do fell you I was hoping they would have an 8 core zen...
