New PC, new everything, drives disappearing & malware

Hi all,
Been searching for answers regarding disappearing drives but only found stuff regarding potentially failing older drives.
My computer and all components are new save one SSD and I assembled it in June.
Components: Ryzen 3700x Vengeance 32GB 3200MHz Gigabyte 2070s MSI B450 Gaming carbon Corsair 750w modular PSU All high end Corsair braided cables
Now the drives: Samsung Evo 860 500gb C: Samsung Evo 860 500gb D: (photos - lightroom) Samsung Evo 850 250gb E: (games) Toshiba 1tb F: (storage)
Only the D: and E: drives periodically disappear. It's I'd say about 10-20% of the time after turning the computer on. Restarting usually makes em come back.
All drives have good health according to Magician and are healthy according to Dskmgmt. The 850 comes from a previous computer but was thoroughly wiped (formatted, volumes and partitions deleted in Dskmgmt then reformatted again). Magician says 6.5tb were written on it. It was on a laptop and with not much file movement on it save for .docs .pdfs and the likes.
Now comes the malware part, though I have no idea if it is connected.
Back in July I realised the PC was infected with malwares since I couldn't access Windows defender (only had the blank 'security at a glance screen, and defender had indeed been disabled from the reg). I'd been a greedy bastard and might have gone on unsafe websites. Installed malware bytes, which found a bunch of malware including the one responsible for the defender registry debacle. It found other bitcoin mining stuff too. It apparently took care of it, however, since the computer was new, I did a full windows reinstall without keeping files. I set the few important files aside on a drive and scanned everything beforehand.
Everything was fine, fast forward about 3 weeks ago when I tried launching a game and steam tells me I have to download it again. The game drive was gone. I restarted and everything was back to normal. After a while I thought 'eh, let's have ole Defender scan this mess' and bam! No defender, blank 'security at a glance' screen...
Back with MWB, more or less same results as before with defender registry hack, bitcoin mining stuff and all.
Thing is, I had been much more careful and hadn't downloaded anything, so this seems even weirder for me.
I did another fresh windows install two days ago, not saving files (except storing the heavy steam library after full scan), thinking I'd be safe again and could finally enjoy a clean and proper PC.
However, this morning, as I tried launching a game, I realised both the game drive and photo drive are gone.
Restarted and it's fine, but damn is it annoying.
TL;DR: drives disappear randomly it appears, but 2 malwares infestations makes me doubt everything. Everything's brand spanking new though one drive is slightly older but in good health! High quality cables.
Thanks for any input and for reading that damn mess. Cheers!

Advices about gpu mining setup?

Hi everyone, fairly new to the topic and issues that come with it. I plan on buying a gamemax bitcoin mining 1650W power supply, and 2x 1660 super. I wanted to use my personal computer for the job, because it has a z370 pro4 mobo, and because i dont use it much really, because im a student in another city.
  1. Can i wire the power supply only to the gpus and not to the pc? Do i need to short a cable or something to start the psu?
  2. Is there any problem that may arise if im using my personal computer? I'll probably get risers and put the gpus out of the pc case for now. Is there any recommendation for maximum lenght of the pci riser cable? I will buy a seperate motherboard when i mine it and slowly expand my rig.
  3. Are there brands i should avoid buying? Zotac? Gigabyte? Also is there any info somewhere about the memory brand of the gpu? Samsung seems the best.
  4. Can i run different gpus at the same time? 2x 1660 & 1x 1060 in my case.
I plan on mining with nicehash.

[USA-OH] [H] Desktop - i9 7920X, GTX 1080Ti, 64GB DDR4, 1TB SSD [W] Local Cash

Hi people, I have a computer that I built a few years back and would like to get rid of. This computer has never been used to play any games, mine bitcoin, etc. My brother used it as an office PC.
Okay so here is the full part list, along with what I could find each part for at the cheapest...
CPU: i9-7920X Skylake 2.9GHz 12-core - $600
GPU: GTX 1080TI (ROG-STRIX-GTX1080TI-011G-GAMING) - $600
Motherboard: ASUS TUF X299 Mark 1 - $350
Memory: Vengeance LPX 4x16GB 2666MHz DDR4 RAM - $220
Storage: Samsung 960 EVO 1TB M.2 - $200
AIO: Thermaltake FLOE RIING - $160
WiFi: Asus PCE-AC558T - $35
Case: CORSAIR CRYSTAL 570X RGB ATX CASE - $150
PSU: EVGA 850 G3 - $140
OS: W10 Pro
I'm asking for the combination of all these prices, and sell the whole computer as one (I don't want to part out right now). So $2455 for the rig. I'm not going to add in the cost of windows. If my prices are nuts please let me know.
Your sweet proof
I don't have a CPU-Z because I didn't know that was a requirement before I reset windows. I hope the UEFI picture makes up for it.

Coil Whine - Unique Situation and What I've Learned and my Desparate Need for Help.

Specs listed at the bottom before you pull your hair out and throw your chair out the window.

So for the past 2 months I have been digging all over the internet and troubleshooting this problem in every way I can conceive and I have been through quite the journey to get where I am now, only to find that I may literally be the only one suffering from my unique problem. I am going to be somewhat detailed so that anyone else suffering from this might find this post and learn something (if we find a solution).
I will try to keep it concise, but I need you all to know what I have and have not tried so that we don't waste everyone's time.
I have an audio buzz. This buzz comes primarily from analogue ins/outs on my PC's hardware. USB audio ins/outs have this as well, but not nearly as bad. I have a USB mixer that I thought was the culprit, because as I was setting up the audio system for streaming it became apparent. I initially discovered ground loops and tried to mitigate the problem by eliminating that. No dice. I systematically eliminated every single ground from the system and removed components to no avail.
It would literally be impossible for me to have a ground loop with my current setup - I really dialed that in before I moved inside the PC. Yes I have even plugged the entire system (AS A TEMPORARY - LITERALLY 30 SECOND TEST) into the outlet with no ground prong (bring on the hate) to eliminate that possibility.
The main problem that I have is due to the fact that I have to monitor "listen to this device" one input or another with the way my audio works. I need on the fly control of multiple audio streams at my mixer, so I have audio running from windows into my mixer and back out at 2 points. If I want to hear anything from one of them I MUST monitor it within windows. Monitoring the USB audio source does make things significantly more quiet than monitoring the analogue line in, so I am setup this way and things are better than they could be - but still not nearly acceptable.
Spoiler: it is due to coil whine which apparently to every single other person in the world is literally a zero issue because they can hide their PC below their desk, keep the culprit component enclosed in the case or use good headphones and not have to listen to the "hardware coil whine." Nobody hears their coil whine through their audio output. If they do - they've been searching for solutions to:
These people that are searching this DO get the help they need. They simply disable a culprit unused audio source, disable monitoring "listen to this device" on an audio source, or reduce microphone boost or lower input/output levels. Some even have success disabling or enabling drivers (but I think this is not the ACTUAL solution - I notice that when I disable, uninstall or update devices/drivers, settings roll back too and any device I was monitoring is no longer monitored (or is monitored by the wrong audio output). My theory is that drivers have nothing to do with this problem - any apparent fix or genesis of the problem due to Windows Update or Drivers are actually just settings being defaulted or change by the audio system resetting.
I have also tried USB isolation and dedicated sound cards (which just pass the problem along). The problem is exactly the same no matter what because again - this is due to coil whine and it is at the hardware level at its core.
I discovered that it was coil whine after thinking I had discovered it was not coil whine. After all - removing my GPU from the equation didn't stop the sound from persisting in my headphones and a CPU can't coil whine (I don't think)... Anyways, I happen to think I have found a workaround last night. Yeah, sure - the buzz is still there but I am pretty sure it is not coming into my stream. Wrong. I load up a game (and I have my case side panel off) and before I can get into my headphones to check if the noise is back I notice it coming from inside my PC's case.
Quick throw-on of the headphones and a quick diagnostic tells me that indeed I am hearing the same noise inside the case and through my headphones. As mentioned before - the USB monitoring has lessened the problem, but not eliminated it.
So I have a big "HELL YEAH" moment. The problem is still there - but I know it is SOMEWHERE in this chunk of hardware I am looking at in front of me, and I can assume it is either the PSU, the Motherboard or the GPU.
So I take to doing some testing. In my months of research I found that when the computer is "drawing" as in pixels are generating new information, the problem is worse. I also know that loading my CPU to 100% significantly reduces the noise it is making and again I know these things can be related to changes in voltage at the CPU/GPU.
So I get a game loaded and go to work. Unplug Display Port - nothing changes significantly, but there is a small change nonetheless. But the monitor literally isn't drawing anything. The CPU is still relaying information (mouse position, the Game, etc). So either way the GPU is still receiving information, just not passing it on to the monitor.
Pull the 8 pin off the GPU - Fan cranks to 650% and I couldn't hear anything if I tried. So no dice there but I remember trying this before and not noticing much of a change either.
So now I open performance monitor, a web page with plenty of white on it (seems to generate the most noise) and start scrolling around. I notice that I get spikes on the GPU AND THE CPU when scrolling, and the noise in the headphones and at the hardware level is consistent with the movement and the readouts in Performance Monitor.
I run Cinebench r20, the CPU shuts the F**k up for the most part, but mostly because it is a high frequency now and most of it is out of normal hearing range (I have a wider hearing range due to ear training) and can pick up the low end of it (18-19khz) and think that if only this was all I had to deal with that would be great.
However, I am still getting quick spikes (during r20 test) when I move the mouse to highlight different tables on the performance monitor - so the GPU is also in on it.
Speaking of trying to isolate hardware problems: I have tried isolating the noise in the case using a straw and a notebook to block the sound and really can't determine if it is GPU, CPU, or some component on the motherboard or all three - I know it is not coming from the PSU because that is easy enough to isolate in my case (pun not intended - but enjoyed).
However, just because the PSU does not whine doesn't mean it isn't the culprit - if it is delivering unstable power to a component then it sure could be (correct me if I am wrong).
So here I am - wondering if you all have any valuable input. Please consider that I have read (no exaggeration) 200+ unique pages on this topic (broad as it was in the beginning) and I have tried everything suggested BESIDES replacing CPU, replacing, GPU, replacing MOBO, replacing PSU.
And that is why I am here asking for your advice. I need to probably replace components and I have to start somewhere - I cannot RMA anything besides the GPU (lost all proofs of purchase - paid cash for some items at retailers and lost paperwork when moving). And MSI will not RMA motherboards for Coil Whine anyway (according to numerous posts). I am prepared to buy a new MOBO and PSU, but I wonder where you think I should start.
Nvidia is looking into RMA'ing the card for me but they're hesitant.
I just want to list some other random things I have tried with no success so that you don't waste your time having to ask.
Please let me know if you have any input or are suffering the same problem. I would really appreciate it and hopefully someone suffering a problem can find this post and learn something about their own situation from all the processing I have done.

Specs:
Thanks in advance.

Update: In case this gets read by more than 3 people. Changed MOBO and PSU (independently and together - as separate tests) and nothing has changed.

Help with Jagged Edges and Shimmering on 2080Ti

Hey y'all! So I've been having a bit of an issue with my PC. Throughout windows it seems as though there isn't any anti-aliasing happening. The lines look jagged and sometimes I get these texture waves/shimmer. I've tried so many things.
-reinstalling drivers
-messing with nvidia control panel
-replaced displayport cables/switch to HDMI
-messing with monitor settings (2x VG27AQ)
-reinstalled windows 10 pro
-reseated the graphics card
-display settings in windows
I had a bitcoin mining virus that I dealt with and removed with malwarebytes.
I also had a instance where I case swapped my pc and when removing the graphics card the plastic pcie clip that locks the card came off with it. I was able to put it back on as well as reseating the card with out it and it made no difference.
So I'm a bit at a loss. The aliasing is especially noticeable when viewing HD/4K videos in a small windows instead of in full screen.
Games seem to be running fine and anti-aliasing works on Warzone for example.
Overall the Windows UI seems jagged and not as sharp as I remember.

Anything in my current, fairly old (but water-cooled!), PC worth using in a new one?

I started building computers around the year 2000 and have never really done a complete build from scratch (for myself) after my first. I'd upgrade a part here and there, and over time everything has been replaced multiple times. However, I'm thinking, due to an upgrade hiatus (it took me a LONG time to "beat" Skyrim :-P), I'm at the end of the road. I'm close to the conclusion that, for the second time in my life, it makes sense for a fresh new build. I figure I'd run this past y'all first.
My next computer I'll use for both fun and work. On the fun side, it would ideally play modern games (Particularly, I'm eying Elder Scrolls VI and Baldurs Gate III) on decent settings on my 34" widescreen monitor. Work-wise, it needs to be able to run multiple docker containers and let me do other things (take notes in notion, google docs, etc.) while on a CPU-crushing video call. The budget is $1,500.
Here is my current setup and thoughts on each component:
Photos: https://imgur.com/a/xyM07dx

Things that may be useful:
Operating System: Windows 10 Professional (from upgrading from Windows 7... the DVD is hopefully somewhere)
PSU: Corsair TX850W - It has been trusty for the last eight years, but may not have the needed connectors for today's stuff.
Hard Drive: Crucial MX100 512 GB SATA SSD - 2.5-Inch, No performance complaints (specs claim 6.0 Gb/s), although I'm running out of storage space.
Optical Drive: Pioneer DVD-RW - Do people still put these in new computers? I also have an external USB DVD drive I could use in a pinch.
Case: Chieftec Dragon Mid Tower - this old case is steel and heavy as shit, which is actually nice as my dogs and toddlers are unlikely to knock it over inadvertently. It has a window which I like, although cable management is a massive pain in the ass. I'm not too fond of the door that covers the buttons and optical drive and lost it long ago.
Cooling: Custom water cooling setup - I water-cooled in 2002, overclocking my Athlon XP 1700+ from 1.4Ghz to 2.5. It was awesome. The radiator and T-valve are the original gangsters. I'm on my fifth pump, with my last three being the Swiftech MCP655-B, which I like. The current water block is some D-Tek for the old CPU socket. The radiator is an old Chevy Impala radiator (I think) that this guy I met on a 3DMark (now Futuremark) forum (jb2cool?) custom modified and made a shroud that houses two 120mm fans. I had to drill the shit out of my case to mount this thing in there. I'm very nostalgic about this setup, but it would also be a huge pain to fit into a new case.
Monitor: LG 34UM67-P 34 - 34" IPS widescreen; 5ms 2560 x 1080 60hz; is 60hz too slow these days?
Keyboard and mouse: Logitech Chordless Wave - USB dongle; wrists feel ok, no complaints

Things that probably will not be useful:
Motherboard: Gigabyte P45T-ES3G - I'm pretty sure I won't be reusing this. I also bought it to replace a more bad-ass motherboard that died when my previous power supply died and took it out with it. I do like how it had dual bios, though.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Been impressed with this CPU lasting as long as it has. I wet sanded it down to a mirror finish ready to overclock the shit out of it, but then never got to it as life got in the way.
Memory: 4x4GB PC3-12800 DDR3 - G.Skill Ripjaws; ancient technology. Note: I want more than 16GB ram in my next build.
GPU: Asus Geforce GTX 460 - My previous GTX 460 died at the height of bitcoin, and any modern GPU was stupidly expensive. Replacing mine was only $30 on eBay, so that's the route I went.

tl;dr: are any of the above bolded components still worthwhile in a modern PC build?

Finally done my first DIY PC build from scratch, although not my first PC. Past computers built by shops. Components, including *ones reused from my old build:
  • BeQuiet Base 500
  • AMD Ryzen 2700x
  • MSI B450 Mortar Motherboard
  • MasterCooler ML240L V2 RGB AIO
  • NAXN 650w PSU, non-modular. (Cable management with it is a nightmare.)
  • 2 x 8GB DDR4-3200 Sport Balistix
  • Galax GTX 1070 (2nd-hand too! Bought it from someone who used it for bitcoin mining.)
  • AverMedia Live Gamer HD 2 PCI-E Capture Card (Outer shell removed. Can you guess why?)
  • Fans (2 x SickleFlow 120mm RGB included with AIO, 1 x Silent Wings 3 140mm, 2 x Silent Wings 3 120mm)
  • IPS 1366 x 768 LCD screen, salvaged from my father's old laptop. Secondary monitor inside my case. ;-) Extra parts ordered from AliExpress: Controller board, acrylic case to house controller board, Molex-to-2.5mm Jacket plug, 19cm HDMI ribbon cable.
  • Last but not least, first-time installation of LED stripping to the case interior.

Granted, not the most epic of builds, but I am proud of it anyways because it is extremely functional, clean-looking (???), as economical as I can get it, and I am able to give a new lease of life to supposed 'broken' computer components.

4K Gaming/Streaming PC with $3000 USD budget

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget?
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra info or particulars:
I want this PC to be built for me.
I've built my own PC a few years ago and it took way longer than expected and received faulty hardware, so I will gladly pay extra to have someone else do it for me. Just the cable management alone is something I'm willing to pay an extra few Benjamin's for.
For the aesthetic, I would like the case to be see-through with LED lights inside, with a white case.

Replaced my 1U Space Heater!

Hi all
Just finished what is technically my third unRaid build, and am so far very happy with how it turned out. My goal was to reduce noise, heat, and if im lucky electricity useage
Been running an R620, first on ESXi for 4 years, then unRaid for the last two months. Since i've been working from home the last 4 months both the heat and the noise from that 1U chassis was getting unbareable. Even with manual fan control through IPMI and scripting auto-fan control it wasn't quiet enough whilst maintaining a reasonable temperature for the office (55-65C on idle. Exhaust temps between 75-80C idle).
So a few days ago I liquidated some Bitcoin and Ethereum and built a new server!
I'd already taken out one of the 2 CPU's from the R620 to make sure my workload was capable of running on 6C/12T @ 2.3GHz (I think) so I settled on the following:
Ryzen 5 2600XAsus TUF B450M-Plus16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4bequiet Pure Power 11 400W psu1X 4TB WD Blue (shucked from an old MyBook) - Parity2x 2TB WD Purples (free from my dad) - Data1x 2TB Seagate BarraCuda - Data1x 100gb old Dell SSD - Cache (already had it... currently sat in the pool failing)1x 100gb old Intel SSD - Cache (already had it. In the pool incase the Dell dies)
All wrapped up in a Fractal Define R6. Originally bought a bequiet Pure Base 500 accidentally thinking it could do more 3.5" drives than it could. Went with the Define as I like the look and I already have one with no mechanical drives so I have spare caddies.
Also accidentally bought the USB-C version... so swapped that out quickly with my main rig! Ran out of SATA power from the PSU so currently waiting on a Molex-SATA power adapter so I can plug the front fan controller back in after adding the second WD Purple earlier today.
It's currently sitting between 30-40C idle, and is quieter than my gaming PC at idle.
So mission successful for the most part I guess!

Question about adding a second GPU!

So I recently started mining bitcoin with my gaming pc, and in it I have an Asus ROG 2080ti, on an Asus ROG e-gaming mobo, with an 850w psu. My question is if I were to add a second gpu, does it have to be the same as the first one, or could I go with a cheaper gpu that is still compatible with my mobo?

I think I'm addicted to upgrading my PC parts, seriously.

Hi, I've built my first PC in 2017, and my interest and passion for PCs and technology has turned into an addiction. I've only realized recently how bad this is getting when I looked at how much I'm spending on hardware in the past year. I'm making this post because I'm seriously in a shitty situation and I want people to not make the same mistakes as I did.
Here is my story; In 2017, I had my very first PC, a 6600k with a 1050 Ti, nothing too high end, considering that people mining bitcoins drove prices to hell and the DRAM shortage made everything very expensive, so I ended up paying 800$ for something worth maybe 500.
Then I moved to a new place, where I had enough desk space to put my PC on the desk, so I wanted a better case with tempered glass, so I paid 40$ for a new case and I dumped my old one.
In 2018, I was selling some books on Facebook marketplace where I saw someone selling a hand made case for 60$, so I took it, and dumped my other case. Later that year, I bought a new monitor, because the old TN panel I bought for 70$ was quite power hungry and crappy, so I bought a new one for 130$, and dumped the old one.
In 2019, there was a 144hz monitor at Costco for 150$, and I bought it, then realising that my 1050 Ti would struggle on it, I bought a used RX580 for 120$. The same day, I saw a listing for 2 mining RX580s with no display output for 100$, I took it, and used the 3 in crossfire, for little improvement.
2 months later, I wanted to overclock my CPU further, so I bought an expensive Z270 board, only to find out that I needed to get rid of one of my RX580, so I listed one for really cheap, but no one bought it after 2 months, I basically had a really expensive paperweight.
In 2020, I bought a 40$ keyboard and a new 60$ mouse, only to buy another keyboard and another mouse and a new mouse pad.

Sorry if this was a long read, but I'm making shitty decisions with buying computer hardware, even though I didn't need half the things I bought. The only thing I have left in my PC that were from the original 2017 build is the CPU and the PSU. I've burnt over 500$ worth of things that I didn't need in the first place, and I just needed to get this out.
If you read the entire thing, thank you. If you didn't, I don't blame you, its the story of some dumbass that spent a bunch of money upgrading his perfectly good PC.

Quick Questions about NZXT H1 Mini-ITX case

COMPLETE NOOB here with a question about the NZXT H1 case and the GPU I can/should put in it...
(1) Since this case is small, I figured an EVGA 2080 Super Hybrid might be nice ( https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-3288-KR from website, but I can get it elsewhere). Is this going to fit?
(2) If it does fit, is this overkill, or would this make extra sense since the case is smaller? For $70ish more to get a high end cooled GPU just seems smart.
(3) Other than a Mini ITX Motherboard (from what I understand), are there any other parts that I would need to order a specific type of different from a normal build? I know the PSU is included and won't order that.
I really have never built a PC before. Had an ASUS laptop for years, and then bought a sale prebuilt 1070 build a couple years ago at Bitcoin's peak for basically the price of the graphics card alone. Now it's time to build something even though this case should make it simple compared to normal. I truly appreciate the help.

external case with its own psu

Hi,
I recently got an hp dl380p g8 server and wanted to use it to upgrade my old rig. I want to use all my disks, and since I'm already using a sas expander I though that I might keep the old pc case with the psu and all the disks, put a 5v arduino relay module connected to a usb port of the server, to short to ground the green pin of the psu when powered on, and connect the sas expander to the new server's hba card that I'll move from the old.
I wonder if it is safe to do so, both devices will share the same ground, but they'll interconnect through minisas internal port, not external sas ports that are designed for that, my hba doesn't have external sas ports by the way.
Other people use dual psu setups on gaming rigs or bitcoin miners without issue.
I've seen minisas to external sas adapters, but it seems that they only change the connector format, no chips onboard to electrically isolate, there are also cables with external sas/mini sas ends.
Kind regards.

My friend wants to know a good upgrade path for his new pc

Question at the bottom for those who don't care about the background (also sorry if the formatting is weird I'm typing this on my break at work) So after 4 straight years of practically begging my friend to switch from console to pc I finally broke him because I explained how cheap it is to get in right now compared to what it was when I got in (when bitcoin first blew up) Anyhow my friend got a pretty decent pc given his budget.
My question here is what should his next upgrade be? He's using it mainly for games like destiny 2, siege, warzone, gta v, etc (think your typical fps console player transitioning to pc)
CORE Specs CPU: I3-9400f RAM: 16 GB ddr4 3000 GPU: 1650S 4gb HDD: 2tb WD 5400 RPM PSU: 500W EVGA 80+
(SSD is currently on its way and will be switching the os over to that when it comes in)
in destiny 2 he got about 70-90 fps on medium-high settings with CPU and GPU hitting 95-98% each. In my opinion a newer 8th or 9th gen cpu would be a nice first upgrade but I want to hear what you guys think!
thanks for any and all help :)

[USA-MI] [H] Ncase M1 V5, Silverstone SFX 450 with short cable kit, Asus Z170I Pro Gaming, Intel i7 6700K, Aseteck 545LC with Noctua NF-A9x14, Corsair Vengeance 32GB 2400Mhz, Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2, Asus 1080 FE [W] PayPal, Cash

I am selling my gaming computer either as a full PC with Windows 10 Pro or I am willing to part out individually. I built it back in 2016. None of the components have been overclocked nor was it used for bitcoin mining.The only issue that I have with the computer is that the right usb 3.0 port on the front of my case does not work. I recently updated the front I/O with the usb c kit and it didn't fix the issue so I would assume that it's the motherboard. Now that the history is out of the way these are the components.
This is the timestamp https://imgur.com/gallery/VzwgXzF
My local area code is 49685, but I am willing to ship as well. A discount will be applied if sold locally.
I would prefer to sell the computer as a whole. The asking price is $1000. This does include Windows 10 pro. I will factory reset the PC so that it will be ready to be set up for the purchaser. I am willing to part out the build with preference given to purchasing multiple items.
Ncase M1 V5 with TG panel and updated usb c I/O $250 sold as combo to dumkopf604 for $335
Silverstone SFX 450W PSU with flat flexible short cable set $70 sold to V1c1ousByrd for $80

Is this a good build ?

Going to build a new high-end PC, for gaming, video editing and other heavy workloads. I already have an AMD 5600XT GPU, and a CM750 PSU that are a few years old, but used only a little when I had it powering bitcoin miners for a year. I have a 1TB Crucial SSD for secondary storage
I have ordered, but not yet picked up:
Any bad choices here ? I try to keep it cheap, but pay a little extra when I think it is worth it. Should I use my old PSU ? Or get a new 550W Gold rated instead ? CPU + GPU = <400W at max load. So 550W supposedly most efficient (run at 65-80% of PSU capacity is most efficient from what I read).
submitted by povlhp to buildapc [link] [comments]

Is this PSU doable for my build or is it a really bad idea?

Here is my problem. I can't seem to find a PSU within a reasonable price range to save my life. (NEW not used or refurbed)
EVGA 750-850w Gold and Plat, were both going for $360+. The rest seemed to be out of stock with no date in sight... And I am impatient. 200$ to me seems reasonable to spend on a solid PSU. I found a 750w Bronze Rosewill for $115. (Plus $15 for 3 year Newegg power warranty) (Also comes with a free bitcoin CPU riser, whatever the hell that is)
Here is my build. Just tell me, is this doable, or is this such a bad idea that I might as well throw my components into the river now and save me the heartbreak later? I'm legit afraid that this isn't the way to go. My thought was, I can always swap it out down the road in a few weeks or months when I do find a better one. I just want to know, will my computer turn on or light my building on fire killing everyone?
My mind has turned too mush after researching everything and reading so many Johnnyguru reviews that I do not trust my own judgement anymore regarding this final purchase.
If anyone has this PSU please sound off on how it's doing for you. And any other general build advice is certainly appreciated. This is my first time truly building a PC on my own! Pretty excited.

Using the stock cpu cooler from AMD for now, figured I can upgrade later if temps become an issue, I don't plan on doing any overclocking, but will be using it under pretty high loads so an AIO upgrade is def coming eventually. I will be getting some extra case fans, just have not decided on which ones to get. I want to be one of the cool kids with all their RGB, so any recommendations on that front would be great as well.

My own (x-post) If you like virtually building PCs, will you help me with mine again?

Tl;Dr: I have an i3, 8 gb of ram, and a GTX 960--help me build a new pc so i can appropriately game again?
A few years back, I got some help building my current rig--but I went TOO budget and need to upgrade.
That build (which I am currently posting from) is here: https://pcpartpicker.com/useG1ng3rBr3dd/saved/#view=bGybt6
Specs:
- Intel i3-6100 CPU
- GeForce GTX 960 GPU
- G-Skill Single Slot 8gb RAM
- Corsair CX 500 PSU
- Asus VX238H-W 23.0" 1920x1080 Monitor (I think I need a higher fps monitor from what I've been told)
- Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
- Gigabyte GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Gaming has been increasingly difficult and I want to actually enjoy gaming again without falling victim to being the lowest frame rate/highest latency on every server I enter.
I gamed on my buddy's pc the other day and I was floored. I'm unsure what his specs are, but it made me realize that mine is just holding me back.
I don't need a ProGaming+Streaming+Bitcoin Farming BEAST of a PC. I just want to enjoy gaming again and be able to for a few years with minimal upgrades.
I really like PCpartpicker.com as I'm ignorant and it's highly user-friendly so if you are bored and like doing this stuff, I'd really appreciate the help picking the best parts for what I'm looking for at a price I can justify to myself.
My top-tier budget is around $1200 but that may be insanely high or insanely low for what I'm asking; I'm not really sure. If I can keep and use some of the parts I already have (Tower case, motherboard [maybe], PSU[?]) That'd be awesome but I understand If I can't.
Thank you for reading and thank you in advance if you decide to venture into this for me. I appreciate y'all.

Post Bitcoin, my country is a heaven for Haswell-based PC gaming

Just want to share this "phenomenon" I've noticed for quite sometime. When my brother's mainboard failed, we thought of selling whatever that's left and upgrade to Ryzen. But it would never hurt to do another check, so I went on my wife's favourite online shopping platform to search for one. And voila, I found a B85 mainboard for ~$40.
Their recommendation engine quickly kicked in. To my surprise, "8GB DDR3" is one of the most popular search keywords. This means a lot of people were looking for them, so Haswell builds must be popular. I know mine is still running well.
So I decided to calculate the cost for a whole Haswell-based build, and this is what it cost to have an extremely decent gaming machine:
Total, minus HDD/SDD, monitor or mouse/kb: $275
There are, of course, a lot of risks:

And yes this build ins't going to win any speed contest, and the RX580 most likely gets bottlenecked by the CPU... But the beauty of this is, for $275, people can get a PC that can play pretty much ALL the AAA titles decently without breaking the bank. On my PC with similar configuration, I often get ~70-80fps out of TD1 and BF1. Even at Ultra in BF1, in smaller maps, I can still get ~60fps.
This is something I don't think has ever happened. I don't recall being able to play AAA games on a $275 build. Thank you, Bitcoin crash.
Edit: I just checked again and the price of the GPU went up, the cheapest RX 580 8GB now goes for ~$75. However $50 can still net you a RX 570 4GB, in this build the difference isn’t quite noticeable

Debating on upgrading my pc. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

So I'm having a slight dilemma at the moment. I have a PC I built in December of 2014.
The build was an i7 4790k, Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark 1 Motherboard, Corsair H100i AIO, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600 DDR3, Evga GTX 970 SC, 120gb Samsung 840 EVO SSD, 1TB WD Blue HDD, CX750M PSU, C70 Case.
The first problem I had was my SSD failing. I ended up getting a free replacement by Samsung to a 240GB 850 EVO. Then during the bitcoin spike, I wanted to upgrade to a 1070 but they were $500+ at the time so I decided to slap in another 970 instead which costed $150 at the time. At the same time I changed my case to a smaller and lighter NZXT H440 since the C70 was too big and ended up being used in a family PC build. I also slapped in 16gb of more ram which makes it at 32GB. More recently I sold my 2 970s and bought an Evga GTX 1070 SC for $150.
I was wondering if I should upgrade to a R5 3600 with a B450M motherboard with 16GB of 3200 DDR4. That combo would cost me exactly $316.75. I could possibly sell my current cpu, mobo, ram, and cooler and just swap those parts out.
My second dilemma is whether or not to upgrade the gpu. I think the 1070 does a decent job and I don't find it necessary to spend $300+ on a 2060 for similar performance. But was wondering if a 5700 XT for ~$400 would be nice upgrade from the 1070. Just want to hear some opinions since most of my friend's opinions are all over the place.
Thank you in advance!
