  1. Works fine? Of course. Potential for issues later on? Of course. You can do a lot of wrong things with no consequences that you know of, until it hits.
  2. Shouldn't be a problem, just crank the graphics up and then your bottleneck is now the GPU lol.
  3. There will always be a bottleneck no matter what. It's just how much of a problem it is. At that res and FPS your GPU would be the bottleneck.
  4. Does this only matter if you messed with the voltage manually? Mine's at stock.
  5. Might be more useful if you linked your sources bud
  6. Well now, my national government just pulled off what we call a pro gamer move

  7. And all other companies have to do their own RnD cos Logitech obviously has patents for their work.... What are you even talking about. You say that, but WiFi even on the highest end mobile devices still get screwed by the humble microwave, other mobile devices, other networks in range etc etc, Logitech's doesn't. In fact, Logitech's wireless solution has been lab tested to be faster than USB. And that's a lab built specifically to bombard it with tons of competing signals. I have no idea what the tech in the MX Master 3 is, but their gaming mice are priced that way for a reason and when you're at the top of your game there's a premium to pay. You can buy lesser mice if you want, nobody is s topping you. You also pay the correspondingly cheaper price for those mice. The market works itself out. That's the point of having a whole range of devices for you to chose from.
  8. So Logitech had no RnD to create by far the best sensor on the market? They didn't have to pay for RnD for a truly great wireless experience with their mice that doesn't get affected by nearby signals like WiFi? You underestimate the cost of RnD solely because you have no idea what these items really are, and thus don't know what kind of RnD is required for such things. You're just hand waving things away to fit your narrative that items like the venerable mouse can cost as much as they do because you fundametally don't understand the items you're talking about.
  9. When has anything ever sold for only the exact cost it takes to buy the materials needed to make it? RnD costs is by far the biggest cost associated with anything technology, has and always will be. Their margin is getting back on those costs. Have you never ever heard of what a loss leader is? An item sold at or under cost to move units to create a customer base that will eventually come back to you for other profitable items. I think you don't understand the economics of all this at all. Shucking drives from cheap enclosures has nothing to do with the cost price to make them.
  10. Just keep your FPS above 48 and you should be fine.
  11. 78c when gaming seems totally normal with stock cooler.
  12. G-Sync controls the refresh rate of the monitor to be equal to the FPS you're getting, from 30hz up to the max refresh rate of the panel, in this case 144hz. The reason people get stutter and screen tearing is cos the refresh rate and frame rate aren't matched, so sometimes you get half of 1 frame, and half of the next frame. G-Sync controls the refresh rate to exactly the frame rate of your program, therefore eliminating any perceived lagging. It also makes lower FPS seem much smoother as a result of this. You can download the Pendulum demo and play around with it and see how much of a difference it makes.
  13. Just let G-Sync smooth everything for you.
