    notebooksbilliger.de has decent prices but I usually just buy them at amazon

    Dell Inspiron 15 or Acer Aspire 5

    I'm looking for a 15" laptop that has at least 5 hours of battery life (better 7) and weighs less than 2kg. I don't want some celeron or atom processor, those seem way too underpowered for 2019 imo. Gpu is irrelevant. The laptop will be carried around a lot in a backpack. I'm from Germany and have a budget of around 800€-900€ but the cheaper the better. For 650€ those seemed like good laptops for my needs, what's wrong with them?
  3. So I'm looking for a new laptop that's supposed to last for a few good years and I got my choice down to the Acer Aspire 5 A515-52G-53PU and the Dell Inspiron 15 5580. I can't seem to find any reviews on the Dell so I am wondering if it has a better build quality, keyboard and trackpad than the Acer laptop.
  4. 200-300 seems like a fair price

    300MHz at Idle

    completely normal. this saves power when the gpu is doing nothing

    i5 9600K RTX2060 / i5 8400 RTX2070

    Resolution or refresh rate. To play at a higher resolution you need a strong GPU, to play at a high refresh rate you need a good CPU
  8. Most of the binning for overclocking isn't made by Nvidia or Amd they mostly just sell the GPU die. The graphics card itself is made by board partners like gigabyte or evga. Because they have to design the cooling solution, power delivery and other stuff they sometimes make an extra step for some models and bin the chips for overclocking capabilities. Intel doesn't do that. They sell their CPU die just as it is. Power delivery is handled by motherboard manufacturers and cooling by other companies. There is no company that sells whole motherboard, cpu and ram packages so there is no extra step available to bin for oc capabilities except for some niche cases.

    CPU not reaching boost clock speed.

    The 3.6Ghz is the normal 4 core turbo speed for a 6600k, it doesn't seem to be overclocked at all right now. On stock settings it should only reach 3.9Ghz in single core.

    High CPU usage and low GPU usage in fortnite!

    A resolution that low is not demanding at all for a GPU and it relies very heavily on your CPU to push the frames. A heavier load on the GPU will reduce stuttering at the cost of some few framerates, so try increasing the resolution or some graphical settings.

    RX 580 not running like it should

    Your results are in 2560x1080. Those FHD results you compared it to are at 1920x1080. Try running it in 1920x1080 to compare your results. Also make sure to use the exact graphic settings the other person used, especially things like higher Anti-aliasing can be very demanding for a gpu.

    RTX 2080 VS RTX 2080 Ti What's the difference?

    The Ti versions are faster cards than the "normal" versions. They have more cores, more VRAM, bigger chips and use more power.
  13. You should be able to do that in the BIOS of your motherboard.

    $200-250 IPS/VA monitor?

    resolution, refresh range, freesync?
