    2700x + Gigabyte X570 Board

    My buddy has run into issues with memory compatibility with this setup. The board is the GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Elite Wi-Fi, and right now we have run into issues with 32GB ram showing up fully. I am thinking it could now be the 2700x causing the issue as I think the 3000 and 5000 Ryzen are more...

    EVGA 1000W T2 PSU Ok?

    Sticking only with EVGA PSU's since my sleeved cables support them. I am thinking of swapping out my current EVGA 1000w for the T2 since its about 1.5 inches shorter and will help with cable routing in my Corsair 500D case cubby. Just wanted to get some feedback if anyone else has used it?
