    Ryzen 3000 Leaks

    Maybe you have more to it, but that seems like a very nitpicky turn off to the platform, considering the difference between a 2x8GB 2400MHz kit and a 2x8GB 3000MHz kit is $10, but the difference between an AMD R7 2700X and Intel i9-9900k is ~$250 and availability.

    Ryzen 3000 Leaks

    Man, if those core counts and frequencies are even remotely true, I'm curious how some X370 and X470 boards will hold up. I'm not even sure I trust the 6-phase vcore VRMs of the X370 Strix to run a 16 core, let alone overclock it.

    Getting low fps on Overwatch

    No, it's not worth the added price.

    Getting low fps on Overwatch

    You would only need to replace your motherboard (and by extension, RAM) if you upgrade to a new Intel or AMD processor. If you stick with your motherboard, you could find another processor to slot in that'd be an improvement. You could find an i7-4790k and get a nice frequency and thread count bump. I'm only personally familiar with a 4790k that did very well for itself, with my daily on it being 4.6GHz @ 1.2v, I've just been told that Devil's Canyon was identical to Haswell but performed significantly worse thermally.

    No, your current motherboard is more than completely unreasonable for overclocking. Here's a guide from Overclock.net on overclocking Haswell processors, just keep in mind that your processor specifically is going to hit thermal limits pretty quickly.

    Getting low fps on Overwatch

    I'm guessing that your processor is the bottleneck in this situation. I'm sure my CPU is at the limit of what it can do in Overwatch, but at 1440p, my 1080 Ti hits a maximum average of around 230 FPS, and I keep it locked at a consistent 195 FPS. This is paired with an R7 2700X at stock settings. I mean yea, but OP is running the original Heatwell, not the updated Devil's Canyon, so that's easier said than done.

    My First Build

    So without going excessively low end, here's what I'd change. Here's my thought process: If you want to overclock an APU, get a motherboard with a stronger SOC VRM solution with cooling. I would have recommended the ASUS TUF B450-PRO but I don't think it's available yet. It should be $90-ish when it's available, so when you go and buy, check around and see if you can get that instead to save a few dollars. Also for the budget, unless you want a higher end monitor, a 2400G fits pretty well. The only two other suggestions I'll leave for you to decide on would be 1) the motherboard I gave has a $20 rebate I didn't include in the total price, with that little bit of extra budget, if you want, buy 16GB of RAM instead. The APU is going to eat from the little memory you'll have and, if you plan on upgrading the machine within a year or two, it's not like DDR4 will go out of fashion and you can continue to use it. 2) Don't build a new machine at all at this price. If you want to penny pinch and get a pretty decent system, you can buy an old Dell Optiplex with an i7-3770 and 8GB DDR3 for $200, a GTX 970 for $130, the EVGA power supply I first linked for $30, and whatever solid state drive for $30. That gives you a significantly more impressive machine for roughly $400, and you can buy a much nicer display or bigger SSD if you want.

    Looking to upgrade to the OnePlus 6T

    Personally, I'm incredibly divided on the OnePlus 6T. Yes, in a vacuum where every device sells at MSRP, it's a steal of a device with its specifications and "90% of the flagship experience," as I'd call it, but where I'm divided is that other devices aren't priced in a vacuum. Unfortunately, not a lot of devices stay at their MSRP and right now, you can get most of the launched Android flagships for around the same price as the "flagship killer," if you know where to shop. Basically don't shop for the OnePlus 6T purely on value, take a look and see what you can actually find in the price range and if you like the other options. In my opinion, however, OnePlus has given themselves enough of an identity with their software that I think I prefer their solution over the 'stock' experience on the Google Pixel 3 XL, and has one of, if not the fastest Android experiences out their. It's honestly the perfect device for Android purests who don't like that jarring notch of the Pixel 3 XL and need something bigger (and/or cheaper) than the Pixel 3. As for the 6 vs. 6T discussion... I wasn't convinced by the 6 but tossed my Pixel 2 XL aside for the 6T. The only comments I have on it is get used to a dongle if you prefer wired audio, I personally don't use wired audio on the go anymore. After starting courses on Cisco equipment, I adopted bluetooth and never looked back. The finger print scanner definitely feels slower and more inaccurate over the scanner on the Pixel 2 XL, but it's not a deal breaker for me. Just use the face scanner when possible. The bigger battery is probably the greatest feature of the device. Combined with the fast and efficient software experience, I actually get two days out of this device, with a disclaimer being that when I drive, I plug my phone into my car for Android Auto, so it charges a little bit as I'm driving. Combined with dash charging, honestly I could probably do without charging overnight, and only charge when I notice its getting low.
  9. I love your name!

  10. A part of me wishes I waited on my purchase decision because I knew an interesting new color or limited edition would launch within the original release... and the other part wishes I just bought a Note 9. OnePlus is playing a weird game, they may eventually start putting consumers in a continual limbo of "but the next version is only a month a way," what with the launch of the T series and the limited edition / special colors.
  11. I've owned a couple iPod Touches, and recently, owned an iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch Series 1, and still use my Apple AirPods. Not every product they make is the best in the market, especially not their phones, but damn their accessories are pretty spot on. I loved my watch and still frequently use my AirPods.
  12. If you were disappointed by the OnePlus 6T (not that you should be, it's a fantastic phone IMO), but still preferred the class (the headphone jack) of the OnePlus 6, then fret no longer, OnePlus is clearing inventory to make one of the better phone deals of the year. While inventory lasts, you can grab the slightly older OnePlus 6 for $429, or with student discount, as little as $407.55. https://www.oneplus.com/6 You lose out on the under display fingerprint scanner and teardrop notch for one that's a little more obtrusive, not to mention smaller battery and slightly larger chin, but you do retain the headphone jack and notification LED, and for those that prefer it, the finger print scanner is on the back (I'm an either/or kind of guy).
  13. The Google Pixel over processes everything you shoot, and although it gives the best looking picture 80% of the time, the iPhone comes off as more natural and workable.
  14. Oh no, somebody was knowingly illegally distributing Nintendo's intellectual property. I am surprised that Nintendo wanted to protect their intellectual property, and not risk losing Japanese copyright protection over it from negligence!... /s The comments in these threads are always funny. It's only a shame that ROMs are getting harder and harder to come by and Nintendo isn't doing enough to keep their old IP playable and justifiably off of ROM websites.

    If I Paid for This, I'd be PISSED...

    I feel like that's the overarching theme here, though. A consumer technology centric channel didn't like the phone, so the masses that don't fit the niche this phone is designed for don't get the idea that they can buy this and have "a photographer's phones." MrMobile had the best overall opinion of this device but he seems way more hyped for the accessories than the others.
