  1. For example, is an R7 1800X more likely to achieve higher RAM speed than R7 1700? I thought the binning process impacts everything. So, AFAIK, a R3 1300X more likely to hit 3200MHz on memory than R3 1200; a 1800X more likely than 1200; a 8700k more likely to achieve higher clock speeds on RAM than a 8700. Is this wrong? On TechPowerUp forums, some people claim binning has no impact on how well your memory modules will overclock. So, I am confused.
  2. Lately, my Ryzen system (the one in the original post) started to crush with any ram speed above 2666MHz. More sadly, it cannot go above 3.7GHz recently (probably as a result of degradation), even with 1.4volt. I already had an inch to switch to Intel since 8700k came out, as you have read in this thread. Now that 9900k is released, I have decided it is time to upgrade and yesterday I ordered Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master with 9900k from Amazon.de.

    650W for 9900k + 2080 Ti

    I am not sure if you understood it correctly. I already have a "Seasonic 650W Focus Plus". Seasonic is a top-tier brand. I know bad brands might ruin your whole system but this is a Seasonic PSU. Would my Seasonic PSU ruin my system if the power consumption is close to 650W or above 650W? I don't think so. It'd just shut down the system. I have no idea how much my new system will consume. So, if it consumes less than 650W, it makes no sense to me to buy a new PSU.

    650W for 9900k + 2080 Ti

    I'd rather save the money if I can. I don't want to squander money if Seasonic 650W is enough because I already have a 650W PSU and bought it 1 year ago.
  5. I am considering to switch to 9900k + 2080 Ti. I think I will overclock both GPU and CPU. I have a Seasonic 650w Focus+. Can my PSU handle it? My build will be like: i9 9900k RTX 2080 Ti G.SKILL Trident Z 3200MHz C14 WD 1 TB Black + Samsung 850 Evo 1TB SSD + Samsung 850 Evo 250GB SSD Nzxt Kraken x62 Soundblaster Z + Sennheiser GAME ZERO 2 System fans with RGB with Nzxt Hue+ (PC Lighting control device) G502 Hero + Razer Blackwidow Keyboard
  6. Quite similar to the homework questions on this page: http://math.jacobs-university.de/petrat/teaching/2018_fall_advanced_calculus/
  7. As for me, I miss BFBC2 so much. This game just got released after I had got my first high end gaming pc (i7 920 + Radeon 5870). It was the first Battlefield which I played online. And never ever again had I so much pleasure from any other game. When I think about BFBC2, I feel as if my eyes are getting watery. Not really but I feel as if. The memories of this game gives me goosebumps.
  8. I will post it there as well. I just wanted to get this off my chest because some people believe there won't be cheaters because of anti-cheating measures. Also, I want this guy to be reported. The more people report him, the better. What do you mean by this?
  9. As soon as I realized headshot6912111 was a cheater, I started the recording.
  10. I keep reading about people's RTX cards dying. Therefore, I am a bit reluctant to get a new RTX 2080 Ti. Should I wait a little bit more until all the issues are sorted out?
  11. Some websites know that my new password is too similar to my old password. How do they know that? 1.) They are supposed to store passwords in an encrypted form. Even if a single letter is different in the new password, the encrypted form of the new password must be completely different. So, the system cannot know whether it is similar or not. So, can we say they store passwords in cleartext? If they do not store it in a clear text, how do they know the new password is too similar? 2.) I change my passwords every 6 months. Some websites know my 10 year old passwords which was changed like 546546849897321 times in the past. Do they store all the passwords in the database? How safe is that? Many thanks in advance

    Glasses keep getting dusty und greasy. What do?

    Uhm, my old glasses got rusty because of that.
  13. I try cleaning them with the glasses towel which was given to me along with my glasses back when I purchased it. But this does not always work. It spreads the grease sometimes to a broader area.
