  1. if you're not going to use the GPU why would it bottleneck the system? bottle necking is what people use to refer to a low end CPU that can't process fast enough to keep up with the GPU. if you're not going to use the GPU perhaps consider any variant other than the "F" The "F" does not have onboard graphics and if you slot it you can't use any video outputs on the motherboard you put the "F" CPU in. You can use the HDMI on the motherboard instead of a GPU. if all you're doing is making music with a single monitor, you don't even need a GPU see this link to compare all the different i7-9700 models: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=191792,195306,193738,186604 of note, you can't buy the 'E' version, as it's enterprise sold to OEMs and not for commercial resell. but i put it in there for giggles.
  2. I understand TDP, however, i do not understand why AMD would publish a LOWER rating for a higher tier CPU and a HIGHER rated for a lower tier CPU
  3. how is it that the 3600x has a TDP of 95W https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-5-3600x but the 3700x has a TDP of 65W? https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-7-3700x the 3600 coomes with the wraith stealth cooler meant for 65W TPD, the 3600x comes with the Spire, and the 3700x comes with the Prism. I assume the Spire and Prism are rated for 95W and 105W respectively. why would AMD list the 3700x as a 65W TPD? does anyone have this CPU that could show me some stats? CPU-ID? personal heat tests? I want to put this in an ITX rig with a Noctua l9a cooler, but the l9a only supports 65W TDP. what's the chances this will even remotely work? i'm doubtful. I do not understand why AMD would publish a LOWER rating for a higher tier CPU and a HIGHER rating for a lower tier CPU
  4. ground issues don't always happen the moment you turn it on. sometimes it's when you plug the port, sometimes it's a computer freeze, other times a full black shutdown. your issue may be with a USB port on the back IO from the motherboard itself.
  5. what motherboard do you have? you said it started when you plugged in your headset? do you always plug it in the same USB port? or do you plug it into a 3.5mm port? I think you probably have a grounding issue on your motherboard. find the port, then stop using it or get a rubber plug for it.
  6. i'd pick the 3600MHz ram. higher RAM speed works better for ryzen. people say 3600 is the sweet spot, but 3200 is a good value spot. XMP profiles don't guarantee overclocking stability.
  7. that's a 2070 for preorder. i doubt it will actually stock. I'd suspect that 2070 cards will not stock as they're being replaced by 2070 Supers.
  8. unigine just says "run it" you can pick resolution and stuff, but it's pretty easy to understand.
  9. you forgot the newest- https://benchmark.unigine.com/superposition
  10. why GUI based? why not use unigine superposition or the older unigine heaven?
  11. 10 series cards can run a "cheaper" version of ray tracing with a new DirectX12 update, but it's definitely not as good at a 20 series card.
  12. try a different monitor. i would have tried: a different cable different port on GPU HDMI on GPU different DP port on monitor different monitor in that order.
  13. a 60Hz monitor won't slow the GPU in any way. however, any excess frames over 60fps your monitor won't be able to keep up with.
  14. base 3600 would be better. i've OC'd my 3200MHz RAM to 3333, but couldn't get much past that. my RAM is Corsair Vengence though, not Gskill, but i doubt you can get a 3600 clock out of a 3200 stick.
  15. i'm a fan or corsair or G-skill RAM. i'd check the price of Gskill in your area, but this seems like a decent value in USA: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232907 i wouldn't worry about getting the RAM though until you have the Motherboard picked out. i don't normally recommend motherboards, because a lot of it comes down to personal preference. get what you want, but don't cheap out. and if you have spare cash left over for RAM, then get it. Motherboard and CPU come first. faster RAM and NVME m.2 drives are just nice to have.
  16. yes. this is what i mean. i understand m.2 is a form factor.
  17. 1500W or nothing bro. Just kidding. that PSU is fine, but it's incompatibility isn't wattage. it's not modular and might not have the 8+8 pins that the 2080S wants. for almost every build i recommend 750W PSUs. it's enough for guys that want to SLI, and it's enough to enter no fan modes for people with little power draws. i'd pick your own PSU instead of just getting one bundled with a case.
  18. i think you're fine man. it's not going to pop the CPU.
  19. in addition to a CPU upgrade i'd recommend a good m.2 SSD. an OS on an m.2 makes a load of difference. also, 3200MHz RAM is good, but 3600 is optimal for new ryzens. btw, you got a lot of life out of that machine. intel 3rd gen was a long time ago. i'm kind of proud of you by proxy.
  20. why not wait for reviews and benchmarks to make better informed opinions on the value of the new products?
  21. these machines are kind of old. the battery has lost a lot of capacity. my surface pro 4 battery is getting pretty terrible too.
  22. hmm.. weird, but not a big deal. is your case well vented? good air flow? fans speeds are stable?
  23. you're only going to get as much as you pay for, minus what your router/access point can handle, minus what you share on the same access point.
