you pretty much have to manually check every mobo you're considering, check if it supports ryzen 3rd gen with "all" of the BIOS versions in the compatibility lists they give
the Asrock B450M AC also supports 3rd gen too
Ayy you're welcome
Hope you don't mind but I'm going to edit the list, it really could use some work to make sure you get the most performance for your money. I'll edit this post with the list when I'm done
PCPartPicker Part List
The i5 9600k and the R5 3600 are pretty much identical when it comes to gaming, but the motherboard for it is cheaper and still of very high quality, so I changed the i5 to a r5. Different RGB cooler for the same price, but much better cooling. 16gb of 3200Mhz RAM, you don't need 32gb of RAM unless if you're doing very memory intensive stuff like running servers or VMs. Much better SSD, has almost the same speeds as a Samsung 970 Evo, and much better than the Intel 660p. Better graphics card, since it fits the budget. Case that still has RGB fans and comes with a RGB hub, yet has muuuuch better airflow and better quality. Better power supply too, and removed the thermal paste since that comes with the cooler.
Overall much better performance for the same price. If you still need extra thermal paste, Kryonaut paste is $10.
Other than that, yeah you'll have everything you need to assemble and use this PC, assuming you have the mouse/keyboard, headphones/speakers, monitor, a flash drive of at least 8gb, and the cables associated. And a good, magnetic tip screwdriver :)
It's always been my dream to time travel pretty much. To experience all the different time periods in the past and future.
honestly, 2-3 grand for that build is a reasonable range.
Intel 8th / 9th gen is not supported on skylake / kabylake boards
the two coolers are as good as a Hyper 212, just one is 30 bucks and the other is 40 bucks, get the Gamamxx
Not the right time to spam emoticons and "F"
Hm, they may be pretty even when it comes to streaming / recording.
Play around with either option when you build the PC. x264 (which is CPU encoding) or Nvenc (which is GPU encoding), and see which has the least performance hit while still looking good on stream
A Ryzen 5 3600 plus an RGB air cooler: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yJJjcq would be a pretty good combo, unless if your son really needs the extra cores and threads that a Ryzen 7 3700x offers.
Having a dedicated PCIe WiFi card is better since you can pick one best fit for your budget / use case, and not have to worry about getting an extremely expensive motherboard.
A good budget WiFi card that has 5ghz and bluetooth would be this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tTdqqs/gigabyte-wireless-network-card-gcwb867di
I've had a chance to try both X264 and Nvenc, and it depends on your CPU / GPU combo on which will be better. My PC is an i5 2500s and a GTX 670. Since the i5 2500s is pretty weak, I went with Nvenc and was able to stream / record with no performance hit.
What CPU / GPU do you have / going to buy? If your list that you have saved is what you have, then I'd recommend going for Nvenc for encoding, at around 5000 - 8000 bitrate, depending on your internet speed (at MINIMUM about 10 mbps upload for 1080p30 streaming, maybe 1080p60 if you keep the bitrate low. For 1440p60, then you should have roughly I'd say somewhere in the 20mbps and higher)
I would not go with the Hyper 212. I'd go for the Arctic Freezer 34 eSports for the same price. It's better than the 212 (shorter, better looks, slightly quieter fan, lil bit cooler too)
Everything else seems good though!
what settings is chrome using for the zoom and font size? what is the screen resolution?
I'm not seeing it on a 1600x900 monitor using Chrome or Edge, no zooming with default font settings. What is your settings?
Heyo, I had a hard time finding the F9 PWM PST fan. For some reason, the F9 PWM PST on here is just called "F9 PWM" instead of "F9 PWM PST" https://pcpartpicker.com/product/p7Qypg/arctic-cooling-case-fan-af9pwm while the normal PWM, non PST F9 is named "ARCTIC F9 PWM Rev. 2" when it should be named "F9 PWM"
Awesome, thank you!
"is a 3600x good for video editing"
"any modern cpu will work for video editing, some faster than others"
your answer is the most "no ****" I've ever seen.
An answer would be like "A 3600x is great at video editing, it renders stuff in x time / whatever" not "any cpu can video edit"
That doesn't answer his question
You basically only commented with the most "no **** sherlock" comment ever
Quite a good chunk of your post is just opinions, rather than actual mistakes
Bump, been a week and a half
But no numpad eh
gotta give him both options
Since he wants RGB, only good cheap full size options are Rosewill and Redragon, they're solid budget boards yo
this is cheaper, still mechanical, RGB and such
Yes, the incompatibility is wrong. It's saying the motherboard doesn't support the CPU because it needs a BIOS update. In reality, the motherboard supports the CPU out of the box, doesn't need a BIOS update.
Anne Pro is def a looker, just you really have to get used to having pretty much no keys outside of the letters and numrow, needing to memorize button combos / modifiers to use other buttons
So am I :P
Again, the original keyboard in the OP was full sized, so I recommended a full sized, and can safely assume OP wants a full sized board.
Not everyone wants mega tiny keyboards eh
I didn't link the Anne Pro 2 because the original lists in the OP have keyboards that are full sized. It's up to OP to clarify whether or not he wants an absolutely tiny keyboard or not.
Also, Anne Pro 2 is 100 bucks, not 80 :P Not the same price.
I'll edit the list to have a better PSU
The SeaSonic S12III is a new unit, it's not the same as the S12II
Here's a better PSU if OP can afford it https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FdRFf7/corsair-cx-2017-550w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-cp-9020121-na
Rosewill makes pretty good mechanical keyboards, they're priced pretty well compared to other options.
Neither are really good options, so here's a better one I whipped up for you.
The motherboard supports 3rd gen Ryzen out of the box.
Better CPU, cooler, M.2 SSD for Windows, better PSU (can always get a much more expensive and better option), matching PWM fans as the cooler, better monitor, better keyboard, better mouse
If you want an RGB keyboard, let me know and I'll find a good one and send a link
nvidia cards support freesync now I believe
You'll need a Bluetooth adapter to use Bluetooth devices
That's a very weird issue. After reading all of the posts in here, sounds like either your motherboard or power supply have died.
Do you have any other power supplies to quickly hook up to the system to test?
Honestly any Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 laptop will do you good, just be sure the laptop has 8GB of RAM and an SSD.
Replace the Ryzen 7 2700 with the Ryzen 3 1200. Use some other computer and a flash drive to download the motherboard's updated BIOS https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M%20Pro4/index.asp#BIOS
Once that's downloaded, plug the flash drive into your Ryzen machine, boot up and go into BIOS, and follow the steps that the website says to update the BIOS.
Once it's done, replace the Ryzen 3 1200 with the Ryzen 7 2700 and see if it works
Sounds like an issue of your motherboard not having its BIOS updated to support the 2nd gen Ryzen CPU.
Do you happen to have any 1st gen Ryzen CPU's on hand to boot up to update the motherboard's BIOS?
To add on: I've noticed a lot of PS2 games looking or even playing entirely broken when using the GPU to process the graphics, which the only fix is to run the game in software rendering, aka the CPU.
This system would seriously struggle with emulating the PS2, even for the most perfect of games on the emulator.
about $500 if you dust it and fix the cable management
For a Minecraft server, since it's single threaded, having as much single-core power as you can get is a big benefit. But, if you're skeptical, use the machine with the i5 + more RAM and SSD and see how it performs before upgrading the CPU. Since you're using the machine as a standalone hosting computer, the i5 may be perfectly fine.
Yes you can always get another cooler later.
You don't "need" to oc. If you want to squeeze more performance out of your CPU or GPU though, that's when you try to overclock.
Yes if you upload the pictures to Imgur
You can use the stock cooler if you want to, just go with whichever you prefer, fancy RGB water cooling or the stock cooler.
Lol order it again / cancel the cancellation, it's alright
Since you already ordered / plan on ordering the Antec K240 cooler, you don't need the stock cooler. You can either use the stock cooler until you get your new Antec one, or just trash it, sell it, or do whatever you want with the stock cooler, since you don't need it.
I'd sell the cooler, get a couple bucks from it :)
Everything else is perfect
