    One issue though. The Noctua nh-d15. I’ve noticed the fans (2) rattle a bit because they aren’t super securely pressed against the heatsink. Has anybody had this issue with Noctua? Any suggestions on how to fix it? I kind of just want to put a big rubber band around the entire heatsink and that should hold it in place but that doesn’t sound like the best idea
    That rattling is most likely because you haven't fastened the "spring bars" in place correctly.
    If they are correctly it shouldn't let the fans move, they will be snugly fit against the soft silicon strips that are on the metal. (You might have direct contact fan to metal, but on my Noctua I have these silicon dampeners that are between the fan and the heatsink. )

    Just built a new PC, went into the gigabyte bios to overclock the ram so i can actually get my 3200mhz. I have my mouse on 1600dpi in windows, but in the bios a foot of mouse pad was like a inch on screen... Anyone had this with gigabyte hardware before?

    G-Skill has a new series of "cheap" ram that's tuned for Ryzen with very good timings and speed.
    I've recommended it previously for different builds, it's the Neo 3600 MHz C16 kit.
    https://www.gskill.com/specification...-Specification

    I bought it yesterday and got it installed today. Boy, the 2600X is so stable now.
    I managed to OC it to 4.175 GHz all cores with 1.38V. Currently stresstesting 4.1GHz 1.35V.

    Later I am gonna try to see if I can tune the timings a little bit more, the Ryzen ram calculator has the ability to import XMP profiles now so that you can see current timings and their optimized timings.

    Current timings:
    FREQUENCY CAS RCD RP RAS RC FAW RRDS RRDL
    1802 MHz 16 19 19 39 58 44 4 9

    Managed 10916 score in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme.
    3DMark read my 2600X as running 4.2 GHz and my 1080 as running 2101 MHz core clock.

    After testing it for a while, I am not able to get it running stable.
    Currently reverted all my attempts at tightening the timings and now just trying to get it to run without crashing.

    turns out there's a slight bend/disfiguration in one of the fans, not allowing it to secure perfectly evenly. How annoying

    LG 65inch C9 is the truth m8s. Glorious screen. 4k HDR content looks great. Xbox one X asked I wanted to switch to 1440p 120hz when I turned it on which is pretty cool. Should be a great tv for the next gen consoles if there a few types of games that can do 4k more than 60fps on hdmi 2.1 or whatever. I’ll have to see how the Gsync this is. Does that work with consoles as well?


    Haven’t picked anything up for the pc yet though. Out of town this weekend for a wedding so haven’t been able to keep an eye on very many prices.

    Mice commonly have issues like that in bios settings. Basically they are crafting an GUI to run on a small space and drivers for mice aren't a high priority.

    It’s an OLED. From what I’ve read that’s wildly overblown for practical use. I think rtings had them running 24/7 on a news channel for like 4 years straight to see burn in. I’ll be lucky to game 15 hours a week on it. With maybe another 10 of Netflix or HBO

    How do I go about fixing screen flickering on PC to 4k tv? I didnt have this issue for the first 2 weeks, now all of a sudden this is happening in 15-30 second intervals. Literally unplayable! It's actually more like the screen turns off for a moment then turns back on. It happens whether I'm playing a game or not, a little less often when I'm simply browsing though.

    It's not the hdmi cable, nor the port. The tv itself doesn't flicker when i'm watching netflix or disney+. Doesn't happen to my 1440p...well actually it does sometimes when i'm playing warframe, but its pretty uncommon. have a rx 590 rn.

    edit 2.0 - returned the tv back to my 12 year old 720p sony bravia. stuck with a 558 dollar gift card wat do

    I just bought two new monitors for my new pc rig:

    LG 27UK650-W 27 Inch 4K UHD IPS LED Monitor with HDR 10 and Adjustable Stand (for console gaming)


    LG 34GK950F-B 34" 21:9 Ultragear WQHD Nano IPS Curved Gaming Monitor with Radeon FreeSync 2 (for pc)


    They will be setup side by side on the same desk.


    Thoughts?

    Thinking hard about this.

    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xCRNcq


    Would be about that price. Would get 60 bucks or so off via Microcenter, but then would buy a Corsair Commander Pro. So would be right around 2700 + however much for a windows key. Gaming only obv. Microcenter also has the Asus 27'' 144 hz 4k monitor for only 1100 as well.. hmm.. at the very least i may buy that 660p drive and 2080ti from newegg today while they are discounted...but might just buy the whole shebang tbh, 2700 well within what i was looking to spend.

    Will I finally join the Master Race.. decisions decisions.

    I'm considering building something very similar as well to get back into PC gaming but I hear next gen cards are right around the corner I don't know whether to wait or just build everything high end except get a budget card like a 5700xt then sell it for a small loss once ampere comes out..

    Don't really like your memory pick. You are paying out the nose for 3200 C16. For the price you are paying you should be getting 3200 C14. Though you are going Intel so there really is no reason to spend this much.

    Ended up getting a fair amount of the parts. Noted about the memory, thanks! Just like the way it looks lmao. So much of this is unnecessary given the amount of time I have for gaming. Though it’s my only hobby besides the gym which only costs me 30 a month.

    As for the post above, feel like I’m missing something. Got the CPU for 430 after bundle at microcenter, gpu 1k even from Newegg and 850w gold psu ended up being 120 I think. Am I missing something?

    Anyway thanks for the help fellas I’m sure I’ll have a lot more questions. Appreciate the responses.

    And yea I’ll prob sell the 2080ti and get a 3080ti next holiday if it’s a lot better.

    Besides the CPU cooler, Ram, and Fans (Which appear to be all selected for appearance and not value, but are functional.)

    Everything appears well placed.

    If you bought the 660p at $80 it is a great choice. If you held off and are flirting with the $100 price point get the Sabrent Rocket as has a proper controller.

    In general.

    I like building value builds where possible. BEST value and performance for x budget unless you have specific requirements.

    For SSD that is price per GB. However, the 660p/p.1 is not really a 1 tb drive. It is really an 800 GB drive or your performance will be HDD.

    In recent months the Sabrent Rocket is usually $110. To be equal in value the 660p/P.1 needs to be under $88.

    Looking for new headphones, mainly for gaming/music i can use on PC. Always used speakers before so no idea what's good, and all results online link to $200+ sets

    Anyone have experience with any of these? or others under $100

    Check out the Qpad QH-85 Pro.
    Open cans. Pretty decent drivers for the price.

    https://forums.tomsguide.com/threads...s-open.414317/

    I have been using them for many years and they deliver quite nice sound.
    I have them hooked into a hrt microstreamer dac.
    They deliver quite balanced sound, I usually use them when watching youtube, gaming and listening to eletronica.

    Might start building tomorrow. Fairly confident in the physical process, any good tools or vids you guys know of for beginners as far as after the build? Like how to make sure drives are set up properly, which programs to use to tell if everything is going alright etc. less confident in that

    I usually do the following when building / upgrading a system:
    1. Go into bios, choose the XMP profile/RAM speed that's on the box of your RAM
    2. Install Windows, when booted up, update it
    3. Go to your motherboards support page and download the necessary drivers (usually network card, sound card, usb drivers, chipset drivers) and install them
    4. Download graphics drivers for your GPU and install them
    5. Download CPU-Z to check if everything seems okay (if clocks looks like they should), also check the BIOS version in CPU-Z vs the latest version that's out on the manufacturers website
    Optional tools: Open Hardware Monitor or equivalent, MSI Afterburner for your GPU (can tweak clocks, fan curve etc), CrystalDiskInfo for information about your drives, CrystalDiskMark for benching your drives to see if they are delivering what they should. You can also check "Computer Management" > "Disk Management" to see if your disks and partitions look correct.

    Hey fellas. Everything went well. Booted etc right out the gate. On the top m.2 slot one of the screws stripped, but literally nothing else went wrong which was nice. Will have to get some pics up for you all. 9 Fans is a bit aids though, especially the 6 LL120s with the commander pro wires annoying af. But for a first build seems to be fine so far except for the below.

    Quick question about overclocking. I figure that because they released the I9 9900KS that the Ks left over wouldn't be great. But i can't seem to hold much of an overclock at all. Any of you have experience with this? There is a 360mm AIO. The cores still around 26-31C when idle web browsing etc. The system keeps throttling down the voltage and clock speeds in cinebench..like way down..even though the temps are at like 70. For example it wants to kick it back to 3.3GHz or something and then the test just runs the remainder of the testwith the temps in the low 60s...Thoughts?


    Thanks!

    Lawd. Been playing The Witcher 3 on Ultra presets with HDR 4k...das it mane. Das it. The Asus 27PG27UQ is awesome. Went back and overclocked again to 5GHz and it definitely boosted the frames by like 12fps average i'd say? (though tbh with the g-sync chit I couldn't tell the difference at all)....and temps are no where near a concern and no crashes. So not sure why it wont run a benchmark for more than a few seconds before down clocking. I was playing for a while. Oh well. All in all a pretty successful day building my first PC. Prob try and overclock the 2080 ti this week.

    I kicked off the new PC by playing Age of Empires (The OG) on a 4K monitor. It definitely looks a lot better than the first time around in the 90s, lol.

    This is gonna be dumb af I know but what's the diff between a small gpu and a big gpu of the same gpu? Is it just better cooling as it's got 2 fans? There's only a £10 difference.

    Example:

    https://www.scan.co.uk/products/giga...res-1800mhz-bo

    vs

    https://www.scan.co.uk/products/giga...mhz-gpu-1830mh

    gracias amigos.

    I'd help you but I'm not clicking through those links.

    In general you want the smaller version of the same GPU for a small form factor build. If it's not going in a tiny case get the standard version for better cooling and acoustics.

    Thanks, yeah I wasn't sure if it was a sh!tter gpu or not sort of like a laptop spec of a gpu. I've got a normal ATX case so I'll go for the bigger version.
