  1. Nope. I like to be self solver. Tried their forums hoping for help.
  2. I bought 3 LL120s with Node a few months ago. It didn't detect in either Aura (Asus 370-E), Corsair Link or iCue. I didn't pay much thought but now I am determined to get this working.I have done some research and this is what I have tried so far: - Updated Bios - Ensured I have updated drivers for motherboard- I have switch USB ports on mobo (it dings like something is detected in both spots)- Uninstalled and reinstalled all 3 softwares- Unplugged Node Pro, held in reset button, plugged it back in Posted on Corsair Support forum 2 days ago and have not received a response. I need HALP!
  3. Need is a super relative term guys. I want to make sure I have no worries of throttling going forward.
  4. Help me out here guys/girls. I have an i5 8600k that runs at 4.6 but when I do other beefy tasks (stream), it just can't keep up. My previous post brought up the fact that hyperthreading was needed so I should go to 8700k. I tried to build a pc that I wouldn't need to upgrade at all, lasted about 8 months lol. I understand going 8700k is an easy upgrade as I wouldn't have to change anything but the chip. But I like overhauling when I get the opportunity. Bonus time is right around the corner and I have to ok from wifey to re-build. I need some insight on what I should consider when going higher end. I am thinking of going 9900k, x-series, or even switching teams and going threadripper. I just don't have the experience with this level of cpu/mobo. What are the benefits from going from 8700k to 9900k and then from 9900k to the X series (or threadripper). Thanks in advance.
  5. 8700k or 9700k for the extra threads. I have a 8600k now. Great for gaming but has limitations to do anything else that takes cpu resources. Get the extra threads, you will thank yourself down the road.
  6. Thanks, man. Glad to hear we are in the same boat and its not a lottery. Kinda had this as a worry when I got my 8600 but hadn't tried to stream until recently.
  7. Thanks for those ideas... going to try to dial all that in as I think the raw power even without HT should be able to complete two tasks. then if all else fails... I enjoy having an excuse to rebuild.
  8. Get something like this. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6ZP3K27413&Description=hot swap hard drive bay&cm_re=hot_swap_hard_drive_bay-_-17-998-238-_-Product Or just make a stand along NAS with: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822108681&Description=nas&cm_re=nas-_-22-108-681-_-Product
  9. I listed my specs below but I am running an 8600k with an ASUS 1070. When I play pubg and stream (using OBS), I noticed that my cpu goes to 100% usage in Task Manager. But mostly I can tell the difference when playing. FPS still shows 100ish at 1080p but it is not smooth at all. Any help or ideas would be great. CPU - i5 8600k overclocked to 4.6 GPU - Asus ROG GTX 1070 MB - Asus z370-E RAM - 16 GB of 3200mhz T-Force nighhawk Hdd - 2x Samsung Evo 970
  10. I play those games on a 3rd gen i5 and a 970. You shouldn't have any troubles getting 60 fps. My friend had a similar issue with his Ryzen 1700X. He reinstalled his OS and had a much better gaming experience. Though there were intermittent issues so he ended up rebuilding.
  11. Board is an ASUS Z370 E. That guide prolly would not work...? sorry should have mentioned that as well.
  12. *First time overclocking* I know cooling will be a question and I have an EVGA 240 CLC. Hoping to find step by step to get me up to 4.5-4.7 without stressing much. Seen a few vids of people getting it up about 5.0 and stable. By no means do I want that in my life lol.
  13. having 3 intake fans in the bottom would create a hot zone? how so?
  14. So I just got this awesome case and haven't settled on a build yet. Let's see what the community can do with 800-900 bucks. See notes below... I am keeping my 970 for the time being. Would prefer to go intel. This case has 9 fan slots. Make it easy on the eyes with this case. Other than that.... have it LTT!
