  1. It can work but you also run the risk of having issues. I've run 8gb and 4gb sticks and similarly 512mb and 1gb stick together with no issues. If it's a new build, you should try and return the chip and buy the 2x8 set.
  2. I would go with the wifi card if I absolutely had to. Wifi 6 (ax) will have a very short range and at that distance i'd rather just hook up directly. I don't know your situation, but I would do everything in my power to run an ethernet cable and avoid wifi altogether.
  3. I'm sure there are some issues, but not widespread enough for me to distrust this board. I looked into the TUF and it is definitely a better value. The prime looks better overall, has an extra phase of power for memory overclocking. I want good VRM's and Asus seems to do very well in the X570 lineup across the board.
  4. I am getting the 5900X, upgrading from a 7700k. I wasn't sure if I was going to get an 8 or 12 core, since the 12 core is only $100 more I might as well pony up now. Still deciding on what board I want, X570 Asus prime pro is what I am leaning towards.
  5. They do work generally, put them in and give it a shot. Worst case it doesn't post and you know for sure lol.
  6. Here's another option, the ryzen 3700x is a place holder for the AMD 5600X (6c/12t) PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $309.99 @ Best Buy CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler $25.99 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI B550-A PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard $139.99 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory $74.98 @ Amazon Storage Western Digital Blue SN550 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $99.99 @ Amazon Video Card EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB KO GAMING Video Card $325.94 @ Amazon Case Cooler Master MasterBox MB511 RGB ATX Mid Tower Case $72.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair RM (2019) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $114.99 @ Corsair Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit $108.78 @ Other World Computing Monitor Acer VG270 Pbiip 27.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor $204.98 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $1488.61 Mail-in rebates -$10.00 Total $1478.61 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-10-14 12:30 EDT-0400
  7. I have an Acer predator 27" 2k IPS 144hz, so I can't speak personally about ultrawide, not my thing. I have 3 friends with the "ALIENWARE AW3420DW" It's $850 on amazon and they all love it. That's something you'll have to research though, I don't know much about monitors.
  8. If that's the case, upgrading to a 3080 would be unnecessary for a 1080p monitor. I think your processor is fine, it would be a pretty expensive upgrade for minor improvements in performance. You might want to get a 2k monitor and either a set of RAM or new ssd with the leftover budget. The 2080 is plenty capable at 2k. Ram is pretty cheap right now you can get a decent 16gb set for under $100.
  9. What monitor do you have? Resolution and refresh rate? The only hardware upgrade I could see that makes sense would be to buy a 3080, but it may be a while before they are readily available.
  10. Can you run your game on full screen window mode? That way you don't completely miss out on the game.
  11. I've had the Kraken x62 for a few years and everything worked as it should. I just replaced the stock nzxt fans with two Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-2000 PWM fans (4 pin). They are powered by the daisy chained 3/4 pin connector off of the nzxt cooling block. The noctua fans will only spin when the cam software is set to 100%. The stock nzxt fans have fan speed control through the same setup. The Noctua fans have fan speed control through the system fan on the motherboard. Is it not possible for the noctua fan speed to be controlled through the Kraken x62 power delivery or am I missing something?
  12. I had the same question and Nvidia did a Q&A with reddit users last week to somewhat answer your question. They did test it, and I thought 4k would eat up a lot more VRAM than it actually does. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/rtx-30-series-community-qa/
  13. Ethernet is the preferred setup. Wifi can be fine for casual gaming, internet browsing, ect. but your mileage may vary.
  14. Download display driver uninstaller (DDU). Let that run it's course and reinstall your graphics driver. User benchmark is not a very reliable performance benchmark, but the speeds on your SSD should be much higher. Try using crystal disk and re-run the speeds.
  15. Your CPU is still very capable. There may be a small bottleneck in some cases, but the overall performance increase with the 2060 super would be very good. You wouldn't have to OC your CPU, but if it's something you are interested in I'd recommend it.
