    will this work?

    Can you tell me how Z390 is superior to x299 for gaming? Z390 limits PCIe lanes That's really about the only difference I can think of so why would he limit himself????

    will this work?

    OMG so much wrong with this.....where to begin..... Firstly is this from PCSPECIALIST as it sure looks like it??? Why the Z390 platform why not X299? 2x2080s why? Why not 1x2080ti? Why not 1x6TB HDD why 1x4TB and 1x2TB?????? Why 128GB M2 SATA based SSD? Why not at least a 256GB Samsung 970 evo NVMe drive? If you go with the 970 evo.......no need for 32GB Intel Optane (stupid idea anyway - completely pointless....) PSU probably slightly OP but meh go for it if you can afford it....

    Building pc for a friend

    Where are you and how much budget do you have? Have you considered an RX 570? They are way better than the 1050 Ti's and can be had for around the same price... https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti-vs-AMD-RX-570/3649vs3924

    Vega 56 restarting my PC?

    Cooler Master GM750W which I've had since 2015 and have not had any problems with - until I installed my new GPU...

    Vega 56 restarting my PC?

    Recently upgraded from a 290x to a sapphire pulse vega 56 GPU PC now randomly restarting - can be anywhere from 10 mins to 2 hours GPU temps low to mid 60 degrees under load Tried DDU to uninstall and reinstall latest drivers from AMD and hasn't made any difference. Specs in sig I suspect my PSU so have ordered one of these https://www.cclonline.com/product/260930/220-G3-1000-X3/Power-Supplies/EVGA-SuperNOVA-1000-G3-Power-Supply-1000W-/PSU1616/ Thoughts?

    Corsair Lighting Node Pro cables

    Anyone know where I can find some replacement cables for my Lightning node pro? I'm in the UK Please don't say make one yourself I've looked everywhere These cables should only be a few quid a pop Closest I've found for the 9 pin USB motherboard header to mini usb B port: https://www.moddiy.com/products/USB-Internal-9%252dPin-to-Mini%252dUSB-Adapter-Cable-%2860cm%29.html I've not even come close to finding the 3 pin female to 3 pin female connector which must include something they refer to as "anti reverse" which are basically clips so they don't come out and click in place Pic of what I mean: Anyone got any spares they wish to sell? Thanks
  7. Good find that man! Yep it's hard to find decent cases in the UK that match up to what I'm looking for and within about a £50-80 budget. I've been looking for a good few weeks now and kept coming back to the kolink and the cit but I've just added your suggestion to my shortlist so cheers. BTW if you can think of any that aren't available in the UK let me know and I'll consider shipping it over from Newegg or somewhere...
  8. Yes I'm very picky, yes I know someone has recently asked this question: No none of the below suggested cases tickle my fancy Surely there are a few more out there? Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG Fractal Design Define R6 Coolermaster MC500 be quiet! Pure Base 600 (not great airflow though) Thermaltake Core X31 ______________________________________________ Here's two I found that I kinda like.... Any more like these?

  9. Hi all, I need a basic laptop with a backlit keyboard because I use my laptop mostly at night when people in the house are asleep and I can't turn the lights on in the house so I'd like to have a laptop with a backlit keyboard but I'm having a hard time finding a cheap one... I don't need anything too amazing specs wise... but an i3 with a 1080p screen would be a good start and 14 - 15.6 inch 13 inch is too small 17 inch is too big and it needs to be quite light weight. Budget £400-£500 UK

    Fitness tracker

    Hmm looks like just the kind of thing I'm after, my only question is does it simply sync data to an app? I just don't want to be in the position that I'm in now when my phone eventually does another update, or I have to factory reset, or if I change my phone to something else, I will lose all the tracked data? Ideally I need an account to upload the data to so its saved online permanently, unless I delete my account obviously.

    Fitness tracker

    Hello I'm looking for either a smartwatch or some kind of wearable that will track my walks/jogs/runs distance travelled calories burnt number of steps taken etc etc but the most important thing to me is being able to upload the data to the web IE NOT to an app. The main reason for this is every time my phone does a software update the app loses its data or doesn't work properly until its uninstalled then reinstalled and I lose months of tracked data with no way to back it up. I've tried loads of apps LG, Huawei, Samsung. My phone (Axon 7) has a built in step tracker but it just displays the steps for the day and doesn't log them anywhere, so thats why I installed the tracking apps but Ive had issues with all of them. I need a dedicate device to track my steps and an online account of some sort to upload the data to so I can view it at my leisure.

    Best aftermarket 1080

    £600 on a GPU? Damn. Add another £200 and that's the total cost of my rig.

    help with PCIe lanes?

    Ask your self if you might want to have 2 GPUs in the future combined with an M.2 drive? I think you'll be fine if you want to do that on z170 but I made a mistake by going with z97 and now I'm limited to 1 GPU and my NVMe drive as z97 only has 16 total lanes. I should have gone with x99...
