  1. What's the problem? Does it not open or the icon is just wrong? Reinstalling Chrome is most likely the easiest fix for both.
  2. Yes, it does. PCI Express 4.0 is both forwards- and backwards-compatible.

    Racing games

    Sadly Dirt 3 does not run on newer hardware, crashes a lot. Tried myself and saw it in one of LTT's videos also not too long ago. To OP: I can recommend DiRT Rally (both first and second), also Project Cars.
  4. I believe it was possible some time ago, but I don't know anymore. I never used it. But you definitely can't do it from Linux. Why not just do the traditional method?
  5. You can, but there won't be any benefits.
  6. I'd choose C9, it's an amazing OLED panel if the price doesn't matter. Much better colors, blacks, but there is the concern of burn-in.
  7. 1070 is the recommended for 1440p 60Hz, I believe. So 1060 with 144Hz on same resolution... you're gonna have to pull the settings down a lot.
  8. Where are you located? I (and others) have no idea what stores are near you otherwise.
  9. Checked two Estonian stores, they show 5-8 days and ~600-650 euros.
  10. Corsair PSUs generally have two types of ports (in addition to 24-pin ATX) - Peripheral & SATA and PCIe & CPU. You should be using the latter. And no, you don't need to remove the extra 2 pins. You can use one 8pin cable and one 6pin cable or if you can't, just leave them hanging.
  11. Speaking from own experience with a 6-core 9600k - I haven't had any issues with games. If anything, I have seen some better numbers as CPU does not have to deal with the threads in certain scenarios (e.g. more cores than necessary). Can't look up any benchmarks right now tho.
  12. I don't think there are many different thermal pads available. Or are there? As for liquid metal - I wouldn't. It's way more risky as it is conductive and can move around much easier on the exposed die. Plus I am not sure of the components from the top of my head if it would potentially be mixing metals or not... Might as well use a good thermal paste and not having to worry about it.
  13. A lot do actually. Depends on what brands you are looking at. I know Ducky doesn't make ISO layout, but I had Corsair one and currently have Cooler Master MK750, both with ISO layouts.
  14. What kind of internal disk do you have? SATA HDD, SATA SSD, M.2 SATA, M.2 PCIe Gen 3 x4 NVMe?
  15. Both should be fine as they are still supported. Just go with 18.04 unless you have reasons to use 16.04.
