  1. I'd say it would do a little bit more than just load windows and apps faster. With the thousands of processes that are running in the backround of todays windows it may help a bit more. As always, it depends on what youre doing on your computer. But the more things you have running at once combined with windows thousands of processes, access times are key and that 5400 rpm drive is horrible. It certainly helps a ton when things like certain antivirus programs or windows updates is/are running in the backround. The vast majority of hdd's that come as standard in laptops are painfully slow. It would help to know your full specs (I didn't look them up) and what types of things you do, and do concurrently on it. If you have a sufficient amount of ram, or preferably a little more, then an ssd could be a huge difference. I've had more than a handful of people that were very happy with this upgrade; it may be the single best thing to do to improve performance, behind getting more ram, if needed. Edit: ok I looked up the specs. 4gb ram. I would get this up to 16gb and see how you like it. If you'd like a bit more performance then yes any ssd would be a ton better than that 5400rpm drive you have now.
  2. 72 is fine and won't hurt it, but it will start to throttle. looks like youve reached the max of the chip. I'd just stick with the 4.75. or better yet, let pbo do all the work. that should still boost the same in multithread and even better in single. and save on energy.
  3. Yup, I understand there can be gains, but it's situational. For me, I mostly play a game that uses about 1.25 cores and the single core boost I get from dialing in the pbo gets up to 4850 or 4875mhz which is a good 100mhz higher or more than I've been able to get from an all core oc or from a per-ccd oc. But even still, it's a tiny 100mhz so it don't matter much either way. Most times I end up with a few other programs running so it doesn't boost quite that high, but still just as high as I would get oc'ing another way. I've spent countless hours trying, and I think until I see proof of some very real gains on future cpu's and video cards, it's just not worth the time invested any more. But again, it depends on your/my workload. edit: do we not have the option to display a signature any more?

  4. The cpu's and gpu's we have today, all overclock pretty well on their own without doing a thing. I'm surprised the ram hasn't started doing it too, tbh. There just isn't much to gain by manually overclocking them any more. Sometimes, and depending on the workload, performance actually goes down when you manually overclock. You could spend days and days trying to get it all dialed in as high as possible, only to then learn that you've gained nothing, actually lost some, or probably at the very most, gained 5%. Unfortunately it's just not worth the hassle any more imo. Just enable whatever boost technology intel or amd has in the bios and be done with it, and save yourself a ton of time and headaches! I hate saying it, trust me. I really miss the days of gaining 50% performance from putting in some hard work to learn it all and do it. But it's also nice to simply be able to turn one setting in the bios to "on" and be done with it
  5. I'd check for a new bios. At least a few bioses across a few manufacturers have had cold boot bugs.
  6. My prior 1700x and now my 3600x both, spikes up to 1.46 during light loads and sometimes stays there for awhile. Haven't worried about it and haven't seen any degradation. I do have an aio water cooler and temps never hit 80c though.
  7. any all-in-one water cooler will be fine. I'd just pick the one with the best warranty, without also being too expensive, compared to the others. I'd also wait another week or 2 to buy a cpu, the next series (5xxx naming scheme). There are reports of them around 29% faster in light loads and will be much better for gaming and well, probably everything. If you can't afford the 5600X, at least the prices on the current ones will be dropping.
  8. with the next generation (ryzen 6000 series?) going to require a new socket, there will be very few willing to buy a new mb for a single cpu upgrade, and instead just wait. I'd like to think that the mb manufacturers would want to simply update their bioses and keep their customers happy, in hopes that customers consider them when buying the next socket
  9. AMD has said multiple times now that all 450 and 470's will be supported. I know the individual mb manufacturers have to make a new bios using the new agesa that AMD will give them but I don't really see any of them failing to do so
  10. Should also review some benchmarks, preferably ones that use the games you intend to play, to see if that video card can put out the fps you're looking for. At 1920x1080 I would think it would be ok. But for another $50 you can get the 5700xt which is about 30% better on average. It also has 8gb of video ram that would allow for higher quality textures, AA, AF, etc. But does not have the RTX technology. Even so, the 2060 sucks at it any way, imo
  11. Yes, get a 550 or 570 motherboard. And if the build can wait until after nov 5th when the new cpu's come out, then you can either spend a little more and get a 5600x cpu (less threads but with the additional, reported 20% IPC improvement, and higher clock speed, will out perform the 3800x, or stick with the 3800x but the prices will likely drop once the 5000 series are available. And the corsair 750 is a decent power supply, that's actually the one I've had for 3.5 years now and works great. But if you want the newest nvidia cards, or the soon to be released AMD cards, they may require more.
  12. if pictures are required in this post, feel free to delete it. If someone is interested, pm me and I will upload them there, maybe that will change it. All items are pretty clean and work well.
  13. weird they are showing for me. they arent links, I uploaded them
