  1. I know it has been solved, but I wanted to add one more thought expanding on Statik’s response. I used plastidip to cover the shroud of my sound blaster Z and it worked well. I agree though, it seems to be fairly muted.
  2. Razor Viper -3 months. Gaming. Lighter. I rate the current one a 5 No. Wired, doesn’t matter. If it has more buttons, I use them. 4 I would rate mine 5. Doesn’t matter as long as it isn’t hard to grip. 5 so far. No/doesn’t matter to me.
  3. To recommend a video card, the community generally needs you current specs and your performance goals for the games you play. Information like frames per second goals and refresh rate goals as well as what settings level you aim for.
  4. Thanks for you input. No weird noises and my components are not dusty at all. I monitor my temperatures and usage of my GPU and CPU while gaming and they are in a normal range. I will try some stress tests and DDU. Thanks again!
  5. Hello, My systems specifications are in my signature below. I was playing PUBG earlier this week and in the middle of a match my PC completely powered off. It did not restart itself and I turned it back on and actually got back into my match. I have never had this happen before and it’s been a few days of intense gaming since and it hasn’t happened again. It wasn’t a power outage because I have a UPS and my lights in the basement didn’t flicker. My psu is 5 1/2 years old but is a high quality unit. Can this just happen as a one off? Any ideas as to what might have caused this? Should I immediately get a new psu? I have some valuable components and don’t want to damage anything.
  6. Hello, I am in need of a new psu and I am eyeing this unit. It has some good reviews from reputable tech sites and one mediocre review (could have been that particular unit). I also like looking at user reviews and I know this unit is pretty new but there is just one 5 ️ review on amazon.ca and one 5 ️ Rating on newegg ( I think it was newegg). I also don’t see it on the psu hierarchy on this forum. Does anyone have any experience / opinions on this psu? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks for all the input! I will definitely suggest the 3600 and we will see the price/ availability of the video cards.
  8. Thanks for putting this together. We have to get the components from one place and purchase it in store. There is a reason for that but we will leave it at that.
  9. The 2700 is $20 cheaper then the 3600. With that in mind is the 2700 a good buy?
  10. Thanks for the info, we will definitely look at those models.
  11. We would be getting the components at local retailer and they would also be building the machine. I will look at their 590 offerings. The budget for the entire rig is $1500 CAD.
  12. Hello , I am helping my friend choose parts for his new gaming rig and I suggested a Ryzen 2700. He will be gaming, listening to music and watching Youtube with it. We are in Canada and it on sale for $259 and I also suggested an MSI B450 Tomahawk motherboard. He will be gaming at 1080p and will be playing: BF:V PUBG Dying Light 2 (when it's out). Is this a sound choice? Should I have suggested a new Ryzen 3600? Will the extra cores be worth it with the 2700? I also suggested a GTX 1660 ti over a Raedon 590 for the video card Please let me know your thoughts, Cheers
  13. I just watched this video last night coincidentally. It’s not entirely about comparing those 2 cards ( he also compares them with a Founder’s edition) but he summarizes the differences between the 2 evga cards really well. They are also the 2080 Ti versions but the differences are probably consistent among most offerings. Hope it helps you .
  14. Thanks, I will pass on the information. Much appreciated.
