  1. call kingston? RMA it? check your bios update and make sure you have PCI-e lanes available in your CPU.
  2. future performance depends on the game, and how it is optimized, as well as the drivers from nvidia. this is always a question that will be answered with "wait and see" anytime someone asks "will my PC be able to do/play this in the future" the answer will always be "wait and see"
  3. rubbing alcohol and a paper towel or cotton ball, just be sure to clean up all the fibers from the cotton ball or paper towel. 70% isopropyl
  4. I use this regularly because the Xbox controller feels big in my small hands. It uses bluetooth, so if you need it for online multiplayer i don't suggest it. but, in PC gaming no controller is good for PvP games. It uses bluetooth, so no need for a xbox or third party dongle. it works. it does require DS4, but that's actually kind of nice, as it lets you remap buttons. (i flip my L/R1 with my L/R2 for better triggers.) the track pad works fine. a light tap is a single click, a hard press is a right click. I have not used the gyroscope. I cannot attest to it's usage. it's a good value for money if you're used to playing with a DS4 controller. quality is fine, but i think all of the console controllers have mushy buttons. even xbox.
  5. my socks are still on. I'm also aware of this, but some headphones just do it way better than others. my logitech g933s did a really good job of it over USB wireless, but the pairing on them sucks and they're 3 ticks away from useless if used with a 3.5mm cable. i've got a pair of skullcrusher wireless headphones by skullcandy and i'm seeing reviews say they fit decently over the halo. might give them a try.
  6. I know this, hence I say "Simulated" the actual products market themselves as 5.1 and 7.1 but we all know there aren't 5 or 7 woofers and a subwoofer packed in there. but the use of a good driver and supporting software help simulate the surround sound feeling. I'm all for bang for buck, but Koss seems kinda... cheap?
  7. I've got an Oculus Rift S coming next week and i've heard that the Audio is.... less than immersive? That being said, does anyone have any suggestions for headphones that they know fits will over the "Halo" band? I've used the old Rift and think the built in headphones were acceptable. I don't need it to be super loud, i prefer good clarity and 5.1 or 7.1 simulated sound for a more immersive experience in VR. i've heard that simply using earbuds and plugging them in to the headset or via bluetooth is an easy option, but i don't think it will quite simulate the "surround" feel of the audio properly. TL,DR; got a Rift S, need good surround sound headphone suggestions.
  8. i wouldn't call that "stealth" i would all it "long game sum" or "the compiled mountain" "stealth" is a full blackout no RGB "stealth" is premium parts packed into a old windows95 tower "stealth" is a mini ITX build that's super high performance and portable this is just a workstation beast.
  9. i assumed a lot of those drives were brought over from previous builds. like those ketchup and mustard sata cables.
  10. what is "stealth" about this?
  11. dude. you should just ditch molex fans. how did you even get molex fans with RGB?
  12. don't even bother for 20$ if you have integrated use that. if you don't and need a GPU you made some mistakes.
  13. I FEEL THAT. just paid way too much for the corsair SF450 and i don't think it's enough for my 2070S and i7-7700k if i add some sata drives. i'm used to much higher power overhead and the 600W version was sold out.
  14. correct, but i stand with you in solidarity.
  15. if you're getting a great deal on it maybe. upgrades are stressful because they cost hard earned money and require tough decisions to navigate "skill tree" of hardware
  16. do you have the partnumber for it? if not you should be able to find it in BIOS. look up the partnumber and find the stock timings, then set everything to stock manually.
  17. check out this thread about that m.2 obviously this guy is using USB enclosures though.
  18. yeah you might. intel likes to change chipset support every generation to make you buy a new motherboard. at least they've held on to the current socket for a while. not that it matters if you require a new chipset.
  19. follow my link the sabrent is cheaper and offers more IOPs than that intel. do a compare on newegg. plus the sabrent uses TLC instead of QLC, which is generally more preferable due to it's longer life Sabrent Intel 4K random read: Up to 350,000 IOPS Up to 90,000 IOP 4K random Write: Up to 450,000 IOPS Up to 220,000 IOPS
  20. i'd enter the timings that your sticks show at stock, and freq to stock, then bump frequency incrementally as needed. user beware, overvolt if you dare. (as a noob don't overvolt)
  21. 10th gen is releasing like right now spec are already up on intel ARK. laptops are already shipping with mobile 10th gen cores.
  22. A GPU gets it's instructions from the CPU, so the CPU can't be slowed down by a GPU. a CPU can however be slowed down by a slow HDD, or slow RAM. going with an NVMe m.2 is a great choice, just make sure your m.2 isn't a SATA one. try this instead of the intel one: https://www.newegg.com/sabrent-rocket-nvme-512gb/p/0D9-00JJ-00001 you should put the extra money into your motherboard if you want more features. I find a lot of people want Wifi and USB-C now and the board you picked is pretty..... "budget" you can always get a better GPU if you plan on gaming or doing video editing later.
  23. what motherboard are you using? have you tried turning the XMP off and manually dialing it to 2400?
