    @dominalien Can you adjust the fan curve? Ryzen constantly plays around with voltage even when idle - it's for a 'just in case' scenario. I've set my cooler (Noctua u12s) to sit at 40% rpm until 60c then it ramps up to 100% when hitting 75c. The spinning up and down is the fluctuating voltage increasing temps - but only for a moment (hence why you are getting the up and down fans). The less fan speed at whatever temp it is hitting the quieter.

    Look itís not a RIG unless you have two apps for controlling the LEDs and one app on your phone.

    @MrWonderstuff Yeah, there are fan settings in the bios, I was just talking about the default experience. I'm sure I can get it to behave.

    I'm more worried by the warble, I was expecting a hum.

    I have had my eye on these for a while. I both really want one and cannot afford one... Would be a great replacement for my aging Linx Vision...

    Iím considering upgrading my pc. Currently Iíve a amd 1500x with a rx580 8gb. I like the new 3300x cpu but unsure how much of a upgrade it is over the 1500x. Paired with a 5700xt. Money is tight, so I can either get the 5700xt and 3300x, or wait and get a 3600x and a graphics card further down the line.

    Well i went from a Ryzen 1600 to a 3600 and it felt like a pretty decent upgrade. Not earth shattering but decent enough to warrant the upgrade for me, as all games had a small but noticieble improvment. Guess it depends what it means to you if money is tight.

    You might find these useful, and you might see a bigger boost because the 1500x might bottleneck the GPU more than a 1600/1700x would.

    I'm thinking of building a new PC. It's not really for gaming except for older stuff. I'm looking at Ryzen 3 3200g Apu and cheap matching mTX board with 16 gb ddr4 ram and a cheap 500gb SSD. I have a 500W modular Corsair GPU that's about 6 years old. Will it still work with a newer motherboard?

    Anything else wrong with this list?

    The PC will mainly be a Plex media server with occasional use for internet browsing and word processing etc.
