Yes, the incompatibility is wrong. It's saying the motherboard doesn't support the CPU because it needs a BIOS update. In reality, the motherboard supports the CPU out of the box, doesn't need a BIOS update.

Anne Pro is def a looker, just you really have to get used to having pretty much no keys outside of the letters and numrow, needing to memorize button combos / modifiers to use other buttons

Again, the original keyboard in the OP was full sized, so I recommended a full sized, and can safely assume OP wants a full sized board.

Not everyone wants mega tiny keyboards eh

I didn't link the Anne Pro 2 because the original lists in the OP have keyboards that are full sized. It's up to OP to clarify whether or not he wants an absolutely tiny keyboard or not.

Also, Anne Pro 2 is 100 bucks, not 80 :P Not the same price.

I'll edit the list to have a better PSU

The SeaSonic S12III is a new unit, it's not the same as the S12II

Here's a better PSU if OP can afford it https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FdRFf7/corsair-cx-2017-550w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-cp-9020121-na

Rosewill makes pretty good mechanical keyboards, they're priced pretty well compared to other options.

Neither are really good options, so here's a better one I whipped up for you.

The motherboard supports 3rd gen Ryzen out of the box.

Better CPU, cooler, M.2 SSD for Windows, better PSU (can always get a much more expensive and better option), matching PWM fans as the cooler, better monitor, better keyboard, better mouse

If you want an RGB keyboard, let me know and I'll find a good one and send a link

That's a very weird issue. After reading all of the posts in here, sounds like either your motherboard or power supply have died.

Do you have any other power supplies to quickly hook up to the system to test?

Replace the Ryzen 7 2700 with the Ryzen 3 1200. Use some other computer and a flash drive to download the motherboard's updated BIOS https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/AB350M%20Pro4/index.asp#BIOS

Once that's downloaded, plug the flash drive into your Ryzen machine, boot up and go into BIOS, and follow the steps that the website says to update the BIOS.

Once it's done, replace the Ryzen 3 1200 with the Ryzen 7 2700 and see if it works

Sounds like an issue of your motherboard not having its BIOS updated to support the 2nd gen Ryzen CPU.

Do you happen to have any 1st gen Ryzen CPU's on hand to boot up to update the motherboard's BIOS?

To add on: I've noticed a lot of PS2 games looking or even playing entirely broken when using the GPU to process the graphics, which the only fix is to run the game in software rendering, aka the CPU.

This system would seriously struggle with emulating the PS2, even for the most perfect of games on the emulator.

For a Minecraft server, since it's single threaded, having as much single-core power as you can get is a big benefit. But, if you're skeptical, use the machine with the i5 + more RAM and SSD and see how it performs before upgrading the CPU. Since you're using the machine as a standalone hosting computer, the i5 may be perfectly fine.

Yes you can always get another cooler later.

You don't "need" to oc. If you want to squeeze more performance out of your CPU or GPU though, that's when you try to overclock.

You can use the stock cooler if you want to, just go with whichever you prefer, fancy RGB water cooling or the stock cooler.

Since you already ordered / plan on ordering the Antec K240 cooler, you don't need the stock cooler. You can either use the stock cooler until you get your new Antec one, or just trash it, sell it, or do whatever you want with the stock cooler, since you don't need it.

I'd sell the cooler, get a couple bucks from it :)

Triple check the front IO connectors for the case, the power switch, reset switch, etc, make sure they're plugged in correctly.

Hearing from the OP or not, extensive security measures you're suggesting just to play a basic Minecraft server to play with your friends, is overkill.

But the GPU thing and such are weird, I agree. I'm assuming either he's going to play and host on the same machine, or he doesn't want to use the iGPU on a dedicated server machine for some reason

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Low Traffic Shaded Minecraft Server"

  • 16 days ago

Again though, he doesn't need to. He said it in the OP, it's a small modded server he's going to be hosting with at most 5 friends.

If this were a larger server that he plans on posting the IP to publicly, sharing and etc, then the security measures you're suggesting would make sense. But for this small casual hosting with friends, it's excessive.

I've literally been hosting for years for Minecraft and other games, with multiple different friend groups. I have never had one single security "incident" of any kind. To go with a wildly different OS, separate LAN, and other complex measures just to play with your friends? It's a bit much lmao

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Low Traffic Shaded Minecraft Server"

He was inquiring about the system itself, not him actually hosting the server and how to host it lol, you misread.

Give good reasons why he should do some extreme extensive security lockdowns with a server that only 5 of his friends, at most, are going to play.

Friends, not random malicious strangers.

I have been hosting small Minecraft and other game servers with my friends for years, you do not need that excessive level of security to do it

Who said he'd be buying server Windows, or is hosting a server that'd be so popular it'd need lock down security?

I'd change the CPU to a Ryzen 5 3600 / Ryzen 7 3700 and to a B450 (one that supports 3rd gen out of the box) or X570 board

You absolutely do not need a 1000w power supply lmao, save your cash, go with a great 650w.

Here's the list with the edits I suggest https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/sbVBmg

The rest seems good though aside from overpriced RGB ram.

As for which parts to buy first, I'd go in this order: Case, PSU or GPU, Ram or Cooler, then Motherboard and CPU at the same time, for the final purchases

You don't need to upgrade the graphics for a dedicated server machine, save that money to upgrade to 16GB of RAM, a compatible i7, and an SSD to store Windows AND the server file

Only add the GT 1030 (preferably a GTX 1650) if you're going to play on the server while hosting it on this machine.

Minecraft servers eat RAM like Chrome and are benefit from the highest single core performance you can get
