    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    Thank you, I really appreciate all your feedback! I really had no idea which country was the best one to finish my studies, it's really nice to have this forum!

    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    Oh, thank you! I've considered Finland because of: it's near, I can come back home more often and I can travel around Europe; the culture is familiar and I'm in the Euro zone where I have more benefits than in S.Korea and it's easier to live in (passports, visa, permits...); but in the other hand, the weather is hard, maybe I could benefit from a very different culture like the Asian. I'm really considering Finland for the moment, yeah South Korea sounds cool, I could visit Japan too. But the flight tickets are really expensive (compared to the ones to Finland) and I would love to come back home several times. I think it's my final decission, hope I can get Finland or at least S.Korea.

    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    I'm okay with the current situation between the two Koreas right now (at least that's what I think, since it seems their confrontation have cooled down in the last year, but who knows) I didn't know that about NK, wow, just made a quick research about past events involving foreigner and only found about the ones who travelled to NK, I've to take a better look at it since Yongin is close to Korean DMZ Thank you about the info!

    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    Well... I've seen South Korean cuisine, I'd say it's a 50/50 there; and looking at Finland cuisine it looks like (at least what I've read) it's a bit tasteless but pretty healthy I'd like to enjoy their local cuisine at least once

    Oh linus.... 2014 linus....

    You know how's Linus, always complaining about everything. If it includes touchscreen: it gets dirty, it's not necessary, you have to pay for it. If it doesn't: why doesn't it. That applies to everything lol

    3000mhz vs 3200mhz need help

    Anyways, you can OC a bit your RAM, so it's not really that difficult to choose. The 3000MHz should be able to handle an OC to 3200MHz at least, but again if it's just 10 euros just get the faster ones

    3000mhz vs 3200mhz need help

    I don't really think it works like that. It would be maybe a gain of 2 fps, 5 fps at best I'd say. There are videos comparing how fast your RAM should be for Ryzen (the CPUs that really need fast RAM, with the 9600K it's just the same). I'd say pay 10 euros more and get the faster RAM, I mean, just 10 euros you wish you had spent at the beginning.

    Waterblock for a 1050ti

    people tend to watercool their GPUs in order to OC it more and better, because of performance. If your CPU runs always hot no matter what, or you want to do a heavy OC, watercooling is not an option. If OP wants to watercool it because it has thermal issues or want to OC it to gain more fps, it's just ridiculous the amount of money it requires Vs just buying a GTX 1060 6GB or RX 580 8GB. Watercooling and OC the 1050Ti won't make it closer in fps to the 1060 6GB, but it sure will make it closer in price, even surpass it. @Earnist_ just wanted to point out how useless is to watercool a 1050Ti Vs buying a better one Numbers are clear, you can watch a lot of benchmarks: 1, 2 even the 3GB is way better Well, if you clearly had a ton of money for these things you wouldn't have bought a 1050Ti but a 1060 at least, we are pointing out that it really is a waste of money to watercool a low spec GPU instead of getting a brand new medium spec (1060 6GB) or even a used mid-high spec (1070/Ti). It's not about creativity (hell, since when buying a kit is creativity?) but about getting the best out of your budget But it's up to you Answering to the VRM and VRAM question: yeah, you need to find a thermal solution for it too, even attaching a copper pipe to them could do the trick if it's long enough to cool it down. Edit: just took a look at your PC, instead of getting an i5 or a GTX 1060, you still want to add a watercooling loop? Yeah, I used to know people that instead of getting better air filters, getting better oil and getting better tires they just got stickers and weird exhausts. Well, it's up to you.

    Low fps until restart (rx 580)

    Maybe it's due to Windows bullshit? I sometimes get low fps, but that's because Windows is running its fucking trash background, like downloading future updates, or scanning for malware, or something like that. Make sure that Windows has nothing to do with it, because it sounds like it has. Also, make sure you don't have hundred programs apps running in background, or starting up with the computer, I noticed some programs require more time to download new stuff, update, etc and there's an impact on performance.

    What’s system to get

    If it's dirt cheap and fast.... Well, 8GB it's the minimum for gaming, just for gaming (no other programs running background, for example Browsers) I got 2*8GB just to be sure, but you can game with 8 perfectly fine (as long as you can get two 4GB sticks in the future, so don't get any mobo with just 2 slots for ram)
  12. PacketMan

    What’s system to get

    yup, 2600 and 1070(Ti) (I got the 1070 and I run all games at 1440p in high-ultra settings, getting over 70 fps) If you are comfortable going used, get a 1080 or even a 1080ti and will have a futureproof 1440p rig But the Ryzen 2600 and 16GB RAM 3000MHz (minimum speed) is the bare minimum imo

    How many browser tabs do you have open right now?

    20 with this one, and I'm on my laptop. On my desktop I have right now about 60-70 tabs opened (most of them of ads, I'm looking for a new car, so I have to check out a lot of ads and remove those I'm not really interested). That's what I do, I open a lot of tabs I'm interested in and I don't close them until I've read them (because marking as fav didn't work for me, I always forget so once I find them annoying, I read them as fast as possible so it's done lol

    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    Wow, that's a nice info, hope I really don't find their language as a barrier, in the long term if I finally work there I definitely want to learn their language (although Korean is too hard) Thank you very much for your feedback

    Opinions on Finland and S.Korea?

    I could learn the basics, but for S. Korea I'm afraid there's really no time since I'm already studying and working, maybe in summer if I have one or two months, but the my plan is to at least learn a few key words (a.k.a. Where am I? How much is it? A beer, please.)
