    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from goshot in How to pick the right budget monitor?   
    In order for FreeSync to work, your FPS has to be lower than your monitor's refresh rate.  If your FPS i higher than your monitors refresh rate, then there is no effect. If your FPS goes below 60, then your gaming experience becomes unpleasant regardless of FreeSync.
     
    It only really makes sense on monitors above 75Hz.

    You can connect 3pin fans using PWM splitters. They work the exact same way as your montherboard fan headers.

    Things you should look for are
    1 Panel type
    2 Brightness
    3 Response time.
     
    Brightness should be around 250 cd/m2. If its lower, its bad.
    Response time should worry you if you're playing high paces or competitive gaming.
     
    Here is Linus's video about panel types.

    Don't sit in front of a monitor in a complete dark. Always have a light on at night or get LED strips and put them on the back on the monitor. This will reduce eye strain.
    Make sure that center of the monitor is little below your center of vision. This is more of a back spine thing to help keep it straight when you're sitting.
     
    Here is a list of monitors around your budget. Look around it

    Its totally up to you to take care of your eyes. Any monitor will cause damage if you don't follow simple rules.
     
    The things that you should look for in a monitor are defined by your needs. 
     
    Thing like response time/refresh rate for gaming, color accuracy for video/photoshop, panel type (TN, VA, IPS).
     
    What I think about your monitor:
     
    -Its VA panel so you will get nice contrast with deep blacks. But as with many VA panels, it might suffer from ghosting which can be super annoying.
     
    -Brightness is ok. 
     
    -Curve is way too aggressive. 1800R at 24 inches it overkill. My brother has 27 inch monitor with the same curve and I think its a little overkill even at that size.
     
    -And it supports FreeSync which is a nice bonus for gaming. But at 60Hz its not that important.
     
     
    I would look for something else. I don't know whats your budget is so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I don't know if the Hyper 212 EVO is gonna cool the i9 9900k efficiently. That thing is a nuclear reactor. And you can get a 2080 super for the same price as a 2080

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Mira Yurizaki in Any sound cards that output 5.1 digital audio to Logitech Z-5500 speakers?   
    The problem is, as far as I can tell, there is no standard uncompressed PCM output for 5.1 over S/PDIF. Every surround sound output is through an encoding method like Dolby or DTS. So unless the application can output that, the speakers aren't going to use 5.1 for S/PDIF.

    You cannot use an 8700K on Z170. You need a new motherboard.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Stormseeker9 in Cpu downclocking heavily under load (Ryzen 7 1800x Baseclock 3.30 GHz, 2.1 GHZ under load (stress test))   
    Then I would get a better cooler as @Stormseeker9suggested because that cooler looks way underpowered for such CPU.

    Have you monitored CPU and GPU temperatures under load to make sure that nothing is thermal throttling?

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Vejnemojnen in High temperatures on 2600   
    Those temperatures are not dangerous. Wraith stealth isn't a good cooling solution, so its not surprising that you're getting higher temps than normal.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Stormseeker9 in Anyone ever heard of this?   
    As @Stormseeker9 pointed out, you don't need water cooler to cool mid range CPU. Some decent mid/high end air cooler will work just as good for less money.

    This, inspired by the case on the left, only costs 3.99 lv, which is about $2.30.
