I am using the CoolerMaster 212X cooler

bang for your buck cooler, dont really care about looks

Some of the CoolerMaster Air cooler have an all black look or RGB goodness and its able to cool even the Ryzen 9 16 cores CPUs

did you try out PCThemes or VideoPro to do up the PC?

Fuwell as well

You should go to Sim Lim Square to seek advice on the build

PC Parts in the US cost way less cheaper than what we pay in Singapore

the PC is very old and the RAM it uses is DDR2

Socket is the AM2 generation socket which is 14 years old now since the release of May 2006.

use JaysTwoCents or any other Tech youtubers OC guide to do the Overclocking

rule of thumb

OC using the BIOS

never use the Ryzen Master software

you mentioned you only be building the PC in the 4th quarter of 2020

i can tell you a lot will change in these months

new GPU will come out, AMD is releasing the 4000 series CPU B550 boards are finally coming. Etc

not to mentioned the rumored RTX 3000 series are coming

so the part list will get outdated pretty fast

Monitor technology and VR arent moving fast so your spanking new 4K monitor or the HTC Vive will not go out of fashion.

i say wait and see what AMD and nVidia will release in the next few months before deciding on the PC build

the build is ok

the 3600 isnt a hot CPU so the AIO is overkill for it

and good air cooler will be plenty and there are air coolers which are better than AIO and more reliable

recently one guy AIO cooler failed just one year of use.

Air cooler the fan only fails and you can just easily replace it.

those are VCore values.

it depends on the CPU lottery

some can run on lower voltages than other for the same speed

some reported their Ryzen 3600 runs at 1.43 volts at idle

since stocks market charts are mostly 2D

the GPU takes a back seat imo because there is no 3D elements that will tax the graphics

the CPU i picked is a 8 core 16 treads, it will be able to handle all the processing workloads from the trading software you use here. I cant seem to find any system requirements for tick chart and 1 min chart. So i can only based on the site i found since they list the system requirements

RAM is important since you have to load 6 screens as the same time. Each screen is an instance and if there isn't enough RAM, you might get stutters with the displaying of the charts. If you feel its not enough, we can bump it up to 32GB.

I been using WD HDD for years, so far i only got one failure of the many drives i got and installed. their SSD has no frills and its fast coz its NVME based which is faster than the normal SATA SSD. Booting up and loading your trading software will be lightning fast.

the HDD is secondary storage to keep your charts and excel files.

since you are not gaming, but you still need multi display

the RX570 has support for up to 5 displays directly or split to 6 1080P displays with the hub.

when you are not trading, you still have a capable machine to game on. :P

The case can be subjective, you can pick whichever you like the design

PSU wise dont ever cheap out on it. The last thing you want is the PSU fail and kill your PC.

Also being gold certified efficiency means the PSU will save you some power bills vs say a Bronze unit over the lifetime.

i dont know why AMD dont have a public service announcement on EOL products

AMD releases the AGESA BIOS to the mobo manufacturers AGESA 1.0.0.4 is the current version for better support for the Ryzen 3000 series.

but mobo manufacturers silently dropped BIOS support for the older A320 and B350 boards

my current Asus B350 board didnt have the AGESA 1.0.0.4 BIOS update.

never enable PBO on the stock cooler

PBO will push more volts to the CPU and making it run hotter than usual.

This will shorten the lifespan of your PC just for the extra bit of performance

first off change out the mobo

the A320 is more of less EOL already

AMD no longer have BIOS updates for the chipset

get at least the B450 chipset mobo

also i never heard of that PSU brand before, a quick google search and i find nothing much about the build quality of the PSU. The last thing you want to cheap out is the PSU.

Some PSUs can catch fire and burn your house down.

Get something more reliable

interesting choice of GPU as from what i read the reason to go the Quadro route is because of ECC RAM and the 10bit color output vs the RTX2080.

is RT rendering supported?

some 3D artist suggest using Redshift3d not sure if you heard of this software.

this is my take on the build

Ryzen 3700X on the X570 board

you will get full PCI-E 4.0 support and lanes from the CPU and mobo chipset. the owner can stick in more NVME drives without worrying about running out of lanes.

And with a BIOS update, you can drop in the Ryzen 4000 series 16 cores or more CPU without any issues.

The build don't need a 750 watt PSU

the 650 Watts is more than plenty for this system

the air cooler is optional if the owner is not overclocking. the stock cooler should be enough for most general gaming and 8 cores and 16 treads is plenty even for streaming.

that is a really low end PSU

the Lite was essentially a rebrand of either the B V2. or Elite II lines........ so, IIRC then no, they wouldn't be 'good' PSUs.

better have a fire extinguisher ready

the GT710 is more of a HDMI display for old PCs which dont have HDMI for TV display

can i know what BIOS revision are you on?

looking at Version 7010 upwards. It says Improve PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD compatibility

Version 1405 ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING BIOS 1405 Improve system performance.

on the SSD website

there is a software to download for it

SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-500-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-2TB-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-HTSK-500-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-HTSK-1TB-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-HTSK-2TB

you might want to try and see what it does, maybe you are missing drivers since this is a PCI-E 4.0 product or some firmware update

freesync is AMD only technology that reduces screen tearing

just like G-Sync which works with only nVidia cards

you can run a nVidia GPU with a Freesync monitor just that you wont be supported when you have issues getting Freesync to work with nVidia

Press Shift + F10 keys together on the keyboard. This will open the command prompt window:

At the prompt, type "diskpart" and hit Enter.

the diskpart prompt type "list disk". This will list all the hard drives in the system.

At the diskpart prompt, type "select disk x", where x is the disk number that you want to clean. In our example, that is disk 5.

At the diskpart prompt, type "clean" and hit Enter. You will not be given a chance to opt out. Once you hit Enter, the disk will be erased.

try this to wipe the disk
