  1. Unless you're afraid of the Chinese Government: Huawei MateBook X Pro Lenovo also has some fantastic options
  2. It won't charge your S8 at 45w but it will work.
  3. 80 FPS at 1080p Ultra Settings. With Medium settings you would be over 100fps
  4. ^^^This all the way. I've only had good experiences with this software. Jesus!!! XD I've been using an SSD for boot since 2009, I can't imagine ever going back to a HDD (for my OS drive). The speed difference is ENORMOUS in everything from program installs, launching software, web browsing to system responsiveness.
  5. If you got 2 different models of fans that don't work (Stock cooler and Noctua) and 1 fan that doesn't (previous CPU cooler), I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say there is something weird with the latter. It might have damaged the pins on your board. I have 6 fans from Noctua and none of them have this issue.
  6. 100% need to go for a used card to hit that FPS on that title at those settings. A 980 TI is currently selling for around $130-150 in the US on eBay. Possibly even cheaper if you can find some local deals. A 980Ti is also comparable to 1070 but the 1070 draws much less power and puts out less heat. 1660 Ti and 1660 Super are also comparable if you can pick them up for $150 (some have sold for this price on eBay)
  7. Did you install the sticks correctly in the motherboard? Typically, it is slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. Check your motherboard manual to be certain.
  8. It may still work and if not he can just run it a lower frequency
  9. Not gonna happen with a 590. This is essentially an overclocked 580 which is just a better binned/overlocked 480. You should get a AMD 5700 or GTX 1660 Super Minimum to hit your 100 FPS target at 1080p. If you can fit a 2060S or 5700 XT that would be ideal for "many soon to come games".
  10. What frequency? Platform is also somewhat relevant. Any DDR4 kit will be compatible.
  11. This question and poll is stupid. AMD / Intel / Consumer / Server. None of these labels matter. It comes down to the performance of the actual specific models and frequency.
  12. Just add a 1160 or equivalent GPU and you will get 144fps at 1080p medium settings
  13. You can just look at ebay and local sellers for what the price is in your region. Take the current used prices and take off 10% if you are selling things together.
  14. Long Term the extra threads on a 3600 or 3700 would give you more breathing room. However, in the short term the 9700F will give you better gaming performance.
  15. Each PCI-E 3.0 lane is theoretically 8Gb/s. You're board supports a maximum of 10Gb/s on the m.2 slot for whatever reason. Z97 is a little wonky as it was the first generation to support m.2. Probably bottlenecked by the chipset.
