What Ram are you running and at what settings? The reason for asking is that even on my MEG Ace x570 And 3900x I have tons of instability if I push the ram too hard. Also what GPU are you running now. The internet is on firer with 'AMD drivers are bad' at the moment.
One way is to find and claim abandoned ships and only fix the launch thrusters and pulse engine. Fly that to a Station or call it to a Trading Post — swap it with one of equal or lesser value that isn’t damaged. Talk to the pilots of the ships that come in to do this.
There are tons of vids on...
I run a - .1v offset on my 3900x under a Noctua C14s. It gets a higher CB score with the offset in place. I’m guessing it’s sustaining higher all core with the lower temps. All other CPU settings are on default. Gaming boost clocks are always 4.2 or better on the cores being used.
Just lead with that when you contact the seller maybe? Seller can then choose to work with that or not.
Generally first come first served means whoever pays first though.
I use the watch and send notifications via email feature when buying and selling so coms are easy to maintain.
Mouse and KB for me but I do play NMS on my TV quite comfortably on the couch.
I use a Corsair K63 wireless kb and Logitech G305 mouse for the TV setup. I made a “lap board “ out of an old shelf and cozy couch/recliner gaming for days. 😎
OP has two displays listed and if gaming is on the 1440p/60hz panel a midrange gpu is enough. I run a 2060s and 1440p/144hz and 60fps is easy to hold in anything I play. Settings are easy to adjust to stay there as well.
SO the question for the OP is --gaming on which monitor? Because if...
'equivalent' cards performace wise would be GTX 950, RX 460/560, or GTX 1050. The 1050ti is a slight upgrade and a GTX 1060 is double the performance of a GTX 660 these days. 1660ti and above even more so.
So looking to replace an older card or upgrade?
I have done multiple builds with the Asrock B450 itx and have had no issues with 1400s 2400s,1600s and 2600 cpus. My Daughters PC is built around it and runs great.
I just rebuilt my secondary box around the Gigabyte Aorus B450 with a 3600. Liking that one too.
Both boards run GSkill Ripjaw V...
I went from a 1070 to Vega 64 for that 'all AMD rig' and had wildly inconsistent performance compared to the Geforce card. Yes the 64 was overall better but had to be squeezed to get the best out of it.
The Vega 64 was under custom water and really shined there but ultimately was too 'needy'...
If you are looking to upgrade a GPU the 30% minimum gain is a good rule of thumb. Its not worth the cash to go less than that in general. From a 1070 you are looking at a 2060s or 5700xt at minimum to 'feel' the upgrade. Right now 6c12t Cpus are a nice sweet spot for gaming but at 1440p/60 you...
Last driver release added the frame rate cap on the control panel. I have been using it on my 144Hz panel without gsync. Seem to work great at 120fps cap for me with vsync off. Totally recommend giving it a shot.
Nice recommendations all.
No mention of the Budget Beast Ryzen 1600AF? It has gone up to $99 recently but if going to the 2600 the 1600AF can be considered.
Personally I‘d go with a 3600 which will carry through a GPU upgrade down the line
I have a Microcenter 20 mins away and do a fair amount of shopping there.
The GSkill Ripjaw C16 3200 kit in 16g or 32g has worked in every Ryzen build I have put together. SOME first gen CPUs had to have it run at 2933 but all of the 2xxx and 3xxx builds I have done will run it at rated speed...
Picked these up this week to mess with. Really liking them so far:
Razer Black Widow Lite Stormtrooper with Orange switches. I haven't used the included o rings but dig the feel of the Razer Oranges.

Smallish itx cases that take standard sized parts have their place. Makes it easier to downsize a system with just a motherboard swap. I have built more itx systems for myself/ family and clients now that the boards offer everything 90% of users need including 32gb of ram, 12 or 16 core CPUs...
Dust filtration is something that you will probably have to add on to most anything you look at anymore. Personally I skip it and opt for more airflow but I get why people do it.
For smallish ATX cases the Fractal Meshify C, Corsair iCue 220T, Carbide 175R maybe the Darkflash BF1. Basically...
As I rapidly approach the “middle aged gamer” years myself and being the proud papa of three... I am so glad that my kids think Fortnight is terrible.
it’s success can’t be denied though and it certainly is pop culture. This is what celebrity looks like these days I suppose?
I have this kit at home that I’m pulling tonight (Going to 2x16Gb in that machine)

Built my Son’s PC around the MSI B450 Pro Carbon AC (mouthful!) and it may work for you. Zero issues since first post and we have had it for 6 months or so now.
Deals like these are why I’m moving the Kids’ PCs off Haswell to Ryzen. My Brother is stuck on H170 and I7 6700 /k are 200 used... He can sell his board and i5 , and switch platforms for almost free. AM4 upgrade path such a better investment.
M.2 Sata 3 drives are still out there. Western Digital Blue and Crucial Mx series off the top of my head.
I still have a 1tb Crucial MX sata 3 M.2 drive that ran fine on an Asus z97i board. No experience with the MSI board posted for sale here but they should work.
If you are into buying American and have the budget the Cerberus is MATX and the Cerberus X is full ATX. I own two and they are built like tanks and well worth it IMO.
Very compact and their customer support is excellent.
High is for playing and Ultra is for screenshots ;)
As others have stated - Any reasonable cpu can push a 1070 to 60fps on most any game out there with dialed in settings. Vram isn’t the issue on the 1070 either.
Look at the Gamers Nexus review of Watch Dogs 2. The 1070 didn’t maintain 60 at...
970s on ebay for 90 shipped regularly. So after shipping costs and fees maybe 70-75 to the seller?
So deruberhanyok has the hookup as his buddies cards are not mined on as I assume the cheapest ones on eBay are.
Ditch the eye candy and high FPS is possible on most anything. Point being with dialed in settings he should be able to get to 120+fps on most any mid range GPU from current or previous gen.
Gotta love Steve's charts at HUB/Techspot:
I stand by my 1070ish perf tier or better recommendation per...
Pretty light on details. But the cpu can’t be dropping to those speeds at 70c unless something is really off. It’s been mentioned that 70c maybe isn’t the actual temperature.
I ran the stock cooler for a while with temps pushing 80-85 and didn’t ever experience anything Ike what the OP is stating.
Something seems off since the OP has verified that the AIO is functioning normally and seated well. Possibly bios shenanigans as posted by other ASUS drivers.
That sounds fine to me. I don't really run too many 'torture' tests anymore on my stuff and just monitor everything while using the PC...
