I was just comparing cost of a 12700 vs a 13600.

After a year of random cutoffs I think my first build has finally given up the ghost. I don't even know what was wrong with it, and I have some pretty good parts that aren't that old(b370, Ryzen 7 1700, 1080ti) I suspect it was the power supply as the shutdowns started once I got my 1080ti and started getting rgb keyboard and mouse. What say ye, OT? Just get a new PSU and reuse it or start fresh?

I built this PC back in February 2020. I ran the first two years 24/7 without shutting down, I worked, taught classes, and gamed on that PC. For the past year, it has ran 24/3 because of my schedule with work and everything.


A few days ago, a fan started making a buzzing/vibration sound during a long gaming session. I shutdown, and the back exhaust fan was caked with dust. I cleaned the fan, cleaned the CPU fan and blew out the CPU cooler fins, and booted it back up. The buzzing/vibration sound went away and the fans were very quiet too.

I was gaming today, and noticing my CPU temps were climbing 1-5C higher than I ever seen. I shut down, checked the CPU fins - none bent, blew out the dust I missed on them, laid it on its side, and ohhhhh damn... the dust screen covering the two intake fans were very thickly caked up in dust like a fur coat - oooppps. Vacuumed all the dust, blew out as much dust out of this PC as possible without any disassembly, and hooked it back up.

She is idling right now at 34-38C with Firefox (three tabs) and Youtube running. I have not fired up my game yet. But my idle and current temps are really good again.

Last April, I upgraded the GPU from a Sapphire Pulse 5600XT to a XFX 6700XT GPU. The GPU runs about 5-10C warmer than the 5600XT (55-60C for the 5600XT to 65-70C for the 6700XT at 1440P.

I would like to upgrade the CPU, but wonder if it is even worth taking this apart. It was a pain in the ass to assemble in this case (InWin A1 Plus), but for mini-ITX, my temps are great. During gaming, the CPU ranges from 57-60C. During day to day tasks, the CPU ranges from 35-40C, and idles at 31-35C.


Edit: 8:36PM) Right now, she is running about 38-41C with just one tab in Firefox running, and gaming was was between 59-62C (according to my logs, Windows decided to check and update virus definitions in the background while I was gaming), and it is also about 8-10F warmer in my house than it is normally right now, and also about 8-10F warmer than earlier today when I originally posted this post. I ran the fireplace all day, and now it is 78-79F where I am sitting at my computer - I usually keep it about 68-70F here.

1700 is falling behind pretty decently I would imagine depending on what you play.

The 5600x on the other hand, isn't so much. Why bother?

My CPU is the Ryzen 2700X on an ASUS Strix B450-i (ITX) motherboard. I was debating a Ryzen 5700X, but unsure if it would have thermal issues in this tiny case. Plus the case is a PITA to work in.

Ah I see, I misread that.

I dropped in a 5700 where my 1700 used to be. Glad I did.

Just had my first Warzone 2.0 win in Duos with my son, that was awesome. We have been getting better as a pair of course sometimes we get rekt but we have had several Top 10s, one second, and now a 1st. Was really cool.

The 5700X should run cooler than the 2700X, no? It's only a 65W TDP vs. 105W.

There's also a $30 promo code on Newegg right now which brings it down to $179.

rigged up the 4-channel bass shakers to the 8040 sim rig.
Other than only tapping 3 mounts on one, which buzzes of course.. the rest of it went about how I expected. was able to get the rear motors attached to seat frame nice and tucked in so I don't have to kick them occasionally.

fronts are just slapped on some vertical metal I have for the pedal mount.

It needs a lot of tuning, you have groups like slip, road texture, lockup, bumps, curbs, shifts..

too much is too much and when it's just all going because all the things.. so it's been a lot of stripping things back and turning them down. Really neat effect but there does seem to be like 100ms of lag between iracing and the motors, but it was quicker response on dirt rally 2.0. will have to see if there is anything I can do to boost the telemetry speed/latency.

It does give a sense of direction, could feel it more when I was doing iracing/nascar stuff and you're loading up the outside tires a lot.

all and all quite happy with it.

Other day after having a good round on COD:MW2.. I got heckled that I was playing on a PC because I couldn't get a PS5..

I bet those PS5 peasants chairs don't even vibrate.

Lol. I muted all mics on day 1.


Running PCIE 4.0 over a riser rated for 3.0 works, most of the time...
The times it doesnt, the system hard locks.

It was fun troubleshooting that issue on if it was a system issue or a crappy coded game issue.

15 months of ownership, and the backlight died on one of my MSI Optix MAG321CQR.

I am hoping this is completely random. A quick google search didn't turn up this issue. I ordered a 2022 model as a replacement.

So I came across news that Nvidia was removing Gamestream from their Shield devices. I had been using the Moonlight app on my Shield anyway to stream from my PC but I decided to take this news as an opportunity to start using Sunshine as my Gamestream host instead of Nvidia's (through GeForce Experience).

This combo is pretty neat. Moonlight shows 1-2ms of latency (gigabit ethernet) which doesn't seem to affect much. I use Launchbox/Big Box as my front end and now I can browse and play all installed games (included emulated) from my couch if I choose, with no noticeable lag. I like gaming on my ultrawide but some games just feel better situated on a couch with a controller. Currently playing Metroid Dread emulated this way and it's a very nice experience .

Just thought I'd share.
