    Regular laptop or 2-in-1 ?

    We bought a Acer Chromebook Spin 13 with a i5-8250. It's touch screen, has a pen and powerful cpu but runs on chrome os... Maybe look at a Surface pro or Lenovo Yoga c930 if you will be using more Microsoft stuff for a 2 in 1.
  2. I have the sx 8200 pro, I really enjoy mine. Really as long as it is pci gen3 4x nvme or up you will not be able to tell any of them apart. Gen4 is great because the read goes up, which to me is more important. But the price/performance is key too. They all write about the same unless there is really large files... I want the read speed after write is done. Below is a decent list: https://www.gamingpcbuilder.com/best-m-2-nvme-ssd/

    What's on your mind?

    I think the box is the only place I post lol, I think the green room maybe 5 times Glad you did, enjoy your rig!!!!!
  4. Which docking station you use? I went all nvme/ssd's in my current rig but have been looking for external enclosures for my sata 3.5" 2tb drives (backups, video and photos).... theres lots out there and I have been trying to decide but these things (docks/enclosures) have limited reviews... I like the docking station idea so I can flop them in and out. I did see some with 2 slot docks built-in that looks like for replication. Undecided still Dont mean to hijack but kinda on subject as op might need a new dock or enclosure.
  5. That's got to be a wonder experience over the lappy! The gpu should do fine at 1080p for most things and like you said you can upgrade in the future when needed, or overclock it when you need to (or now for the fun of it ) WoT should run in the 70~80fps range I would think at ultra. The 2600 is a great chip, the price is hard to beat. Probably fine but you might want to check the ram is running at the bandwidth in the bios and set it to docp (xmp). If it wont take 3200, you should be able to run it at 2933. I mention as I had issue with running over 2933mhz. It might do the 3 post boot when you first set it, if it is not already. Enjoy!

    AMD Zen

    HWiNFO64 v6.22-4460 seems really accurate to me as far as clock, temp and volts... in Win10 pro that is... Maybe give this a try for for Linux: https://github.com/ocerman/zenmonitor

    Logic's woes.

    If the fans are still connected the headers, you can unplug them to see if the sound and wifi come back, possibly they are shorting something somehow? Maybe even just unplug everything attached to sound card first and reboot, check if wifi is good after reboot... if no wifi then remove sound card, check if wifi is good... If not, remove wifi card and put sound card back in, see if sound card is good. This way you can see which one is causing the problem, if it is that. With the fan headers going out too, I wonder if the board is going. Almost sounds like a short though, like something is touching maybe from the case... maybe that coolant is running on the backside of the mb somewhere? But yea your plan looks good.
  8. yea if the gpu only upgrade works out for you, dad and you are both happy If not you could still upgrade the rest while already having the gpu purchased.
  9. Looks like some leaks are starting to come out. If those specs hold true, could really perform. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/3224/geforce-gtx-1180 https://wccftech.com/rumor-nvidia-turing-gaming-gpus-launching-in-july-to-replace-pascal-geforce-lineup-ampere-to-succeed-volta-in-hpc/

    Nvidia - Turing/Volta

    2060 KO has 2080 die...
  11. Stock Ram 3600mhz/1800mhz Infinity (1:1) it is usually 71-72ns on latency. 3733/1867 (1:1) give 68ns latency. I tried a few things, set my ram to 3600mhz and then the Infinity to 1867mhz... My latency went way up to 78ns. I might play around with removing 2x sticks for some comparison tests...
  12. When I was building my rig, I went with 4x dimms and a 3600x to try 4x dimms as I always do 2x8gb... It was that or 3700x with 2x dimms to keep in my budget. I remember Gamers Nexus mentioning some advantages with 4x but really from my old rig to this one, it feels the same when gaming. Possibly, since I have 4x dimms is why I cant go above 3733 as the article mentions that 3600mhz could be stressful on the controller. Really curious if 4x dual rank sticks are any different from 4x single rank dimms.

I added a DIMM cooler but didn't help with OC so far.
  14. Could you please run aida64 memory benchmark? Curious on what latency you get

    New Gaming Build

    Added Alseye PWM Dimm cooler. My sticks don't report temps but when running p95, cpu is almost 4c cooler while running the cooler at 50%. A bit surprised since I have good air flow. Still messing around to see if it helps with OC on Dimms.
  16. Ordered a bunch of stuff, look forward to putting it all together once it all arrives. CPU Ryzen 5 3600x (Should be all I need for gaming mostly) MB ASUS TUF x570 Wifi (Looks to have good vrm) RAM 4x8 G.Skills Ripjaws V 3600 c16 -19-19-39 (Hope that I can tighten the timings, was on sale and thought I read of advantages of running quad) GPU RTX 2070 Super (Blower style, HP Omen series I believe. Got it off ebay for around 5700XT prices so thought I'd go with it. Plus was having crashes with 5700XT when playing World of Warships and it was pissing me off a bit. Other games worked fine though.) SSD 1x NVMe SX8200 Pro 512gb, 2x SSD Mushkin 1tb (Wanted to get different sizes/qty but did it this way to get more paid back) PSU EVGA SuperNova 1000 PQ (Overkill but was on sale) CASE Phanteks Enthoo Pro Tempered Glass (Went full size to make it easier to work inside) LOOP EK Classic RGB P360 Kit (Pump looks to be only ok but not a d5. Might look to add a gpu block later. Ordered some extra fitting and a drain valve) MONITOR LG 32GK650G-B G-Sync 31.5" 2560x1440p 144hz (Was 50% off and wanted to try g-sync monitor, its also flat which I wanted to go back to.) Some things I had to order a certain way to get depreciation value back from insurance, like the water kit... I couldn't piece it together and needed to be a single item purchase. Basically, they say it's worth for example ~350 but its 5 years old so we will give you ~125, but if you buy it again and turn in receipt, we will give you up to $350-125(that was already paid). But my old 3700x cpu, they didn't depreciate it much and gave me nearly the current price it is going for, so I just got a lesser priced 3600x that was on sale this last week and used that money on other parts of the build. Tried to get everything on sale for this build and play the numbers game. I did order a cheap gpu AIO water block but not sure if it will fit what I have or if it will do good. Im going to test with the blower first then try it out later. It has aluminum and copper mixed so it wont last all that long but it was cheap to play with and might be able to use parts of it later or just connect the block part to EK kit but yea need to check on that. http://www.idcooling.com/Product/detail/id/134/name/FROSTFLOW 120VGA Should be a fun build, can't wait to run it thru the benchmarks

  18. For the ram, I would try keeping the timings you have currently that docp/xmp has set... Then move the infinity and ram bandwidth up at the same time. In asus bios for infinity, divide ram bandwidth by 2, so if you set you ram to 3400, set infinity to 1700. Do tests and then try 3600 ram and 1800 infinity. I'd keep going till it won't post, then tighten timings. Cpu-z will show them matched for ram/infinity under memory tab. There's benefits for raising the ram and infinity with most being able to run the infinity to at least 3600/1800, but you might have to loosen the ram timings as you raise bandwidth. The infinity limit is 1900 for most all chips and the 2 I have tried could "only" go to 3733/1867. You might want to set you ram boot voltage on your ram to what you have your ram voltage. Also, might need to raise ram voltage as you move up. I'm not sure the safe limits if your is micron chips but usually 1.45v should be safe from default of 1.35v. Pbo only gives like 25-75mhz more even with water for all core stress tests. But then you use much more power. AMD sees more from ram/infinity.
  19. PC looks great! Who cares what is behind it all with the cables and such Could always get some different fans later, the Noctua redux has a good look I went with too. But eh, it is fine as is. And when you are ready, this might be out by then: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/adata-sage-ssd-unveiled
  20. So you have everything now? Which board and psu you go with? Have fun!

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    Yea and the price of 5700 is at times just a bit more than this with sales. I wonder if aib partners will be this price too. So maybe we have to wait until rdna2 or maybe they waiting for nvidia next ampere before releasing.
  22. Will need to get ddr4, ddr3 is not supported on ryzen. You might be able to get a bracket for the Noctua for am4 socket?
  23. You can use just the 8pin, the 4pin is used in extreme OC cases. I cant remember which of my ryzen/mb I ran with just the single 8pin but it worked fine. But plz double check with the vendor or maybe someone else can confirm. I just know ran it without the extra 4pin in the past. I did order another cable to have both connected to try to see if it would help OC... But ryzen works best when left alone in most cases. Ram tweaking seems to help much more and running 1:1 ratio with the infinity/ram.
  24. So, that MB has a CPU and CPU Optional, both look to be 4pin PWM. Maybe run a Y splitter from the CPU to the D15's and use the CPU Optional for the fanhub. This way your D15 will be synced up and case fans on it's own signal. pg. 5 https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_x570-aorus-pro-wifi_v2_e.pdf
