    No longer a one-hit wonder! It looks like you’re going places.

    Hey, they said they could put an air cooler in there instead which is what I wanted ideally after dealing with the bad AIO. I am going to pick it up tomorrow so honestly have no idea which air cooler they used. The guy said Noctua when I dropped it off but not 100% on what exactly it is until I pick it up.. just glad I don't have to deal with the AIOs. =p

      Hey man, I just got back home after them putting in the air cooler. It is a NH-D15S Noctua. I have a G467 with a Lian Li 205 mid case and it looks to fit just fine. Overhanging the ram but not a big issue for me. Just wanted to give you an update with what they put in there.

      Thanks for the update, much appreciated. I just replied on the open forums as I didn't see you PM. I will definitely go with and air cooler if this one craps out again. Good luck!

    Hey, they offered to put a air cooler in mine when I physically brought my computer into the store. They put a Noctua DH-15S in mine (fantastic air cooler). Literally when I mentioned to the guy that my Coolermaster was bad, the first thing he said is that he recommends that I put an air cooler in there. Apparently they have a lot of problems with the Coolermaster at my local microcenter and I could tell they wern't fans of it at all. They replaced it under warranty and it only took a day. I picked it up the following day but it was actually ready later that day but I was busy so couldn't pick it up. I agree that it is ridiculous that you have to wait that long, but from my experience it seems that the in store techs can offer you something better.

    I love city building games. I don't have a PC though...and my Dad's old HP Elite cannot handle even the minimum specs. So did some research on YouTube and was inspired by JayzTwoCents to build by own!

    I purchased a PowerSpec G507, open-box. And boy its been exciting. I have yet to be able to even start my own business like I wanted to from jump because apparently there is a huge gap in my computer knowledge that is keeping me from being able to even get myself started. No manual came with the PC. No papers at all. So I don't even have any disks but from what I understand its not necessary anymore considering everything is digital today. I just found out that when I log into my Microsoft accounts and do not sign out properly that these accounts remain active and I found this out because my PC restarted as a former pc which really confused the hell out of me.


    My build is AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor GHz

    Installed RAM 16GB

    Windows 10 Pro 20H2 Build 19042.844 Feature Pack 120.2212.551.0


    I would like to upgrade my memory, so I can begin learning how to edit videos and play games. I have never played even a game on this device yet. It seems like my life has been nothing but trial and error and all the help I have paid for, seems like it is still all on me. So I am tired at this point being looked at like a damn fool for not understanding something and I been reading and watching videos but its the content that matters and these people some are explaining things that do not even make sense and I question the source at this point;


    Any pointers would be helpful, thanks so much !!

      Greetings. If you want to add more memory to your computer, you would be looking for DDR4-2666 RAM. Something such as https://www.microcenter.com/product/618845/crucial-ballistix-gaming-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-2666-pc4-21300-cl16-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-bl2k8g26c16u4b---black would work with your PC to get it up to 32GB of RAM.

      If you have further questions please open a discussion thread in our tech support questions forum: https://community.microcenter.com/categories/technical-support

    I setup a Windows 10 computer to use with my new two player usb flight stick with trackball...

    NO buttons mapped or configured at all to use this thing other than move the trackball around. I had to use another windows remote/mouse or keyboard to click/select anything!

    I got the very basics mapped but frankly have no clue what games need what type of buttons and how to map them other then the up, down, left, right on joystick, select and start.

    Can you show the screen with all of your mapping and/or can someone explain what each button is/does and how it associates to the various common Atari games someone wants to play (Donkey Kong, Kaboom!, Pitfall, etc...)

    Seems that best bet otherwise is an XBox but those are tough to get right now. I have Raspberry Pi units I could use but you see the games I want... I do have an old Atari 2600 here but some of my favorite games no longer work and the quality with the snow I get and size of screen is tough to enjoy :(

    Thanks!
