    Gskill 2x8gb 4266mhz ram

    Ok looking online it appears that ram needs 1.45v to run at 4266. 1.4v for 4133 and 1.35v for 4000

    Gskill 2x8gb 4266mhz ram

    Probably a voltage issue. Make sure you are selecting the correct voltage for the ram.

    LTT: We RECOMMEND the Walmart gaming laptop!!

    I have a feeling this thing would benefit greatly from being undervolted. Would probably up the performance to be more on par with the ROG.

    iPad Pros Shipping Bent from Apple, new feature

    This is just apple trying to make more money. They make a new tablet that is fragile enough that it can easily be broken requiring the user to buy a new one at full price. Sure a few get bent in shipping and they have to replace them in the first 14 days, but after that it is all profit. This is why I don't buy apple products. I am 100% confident that if they were ever put under a lot of scrutiny plenty of shady and/or illegal dealing would come up. Some of the things they have done in the past, plus ways they try to monopolize things as simple as being able to repair your own device.

    GTX 1080 ti for $144.45?

    Good news. The 10X 1080ti's I just ordered were already delivered. I paid extra for the same hour delivery service. I have included a picture of these extremely awesome cards!

    GTX 1080 ti for $144.45?

    I ordered 10 of them since they seem like a very good deal. Thank you for the headsup.
  8. Just get Elementary OS yes it is linux based, but your problem doesn't appear to be with linux, but with the ubuntu distros after a certain version number. Anyways the Elementary OS is an linux based OS that is designed to look like MacOS. So you get a Mac feel without needing an intel cpu.

    Mid-range $1600 Gaming PC Build

    If you are looking at total price then something like this. Bottom line the Intel stuff is extremely over-priced there. If you go off your list though you would be better off getting a 9600k over the 8600k. Then changing your motherboard to a similar priced z390. You could also consider using the Vega 56 for the gpu as that will shave off a hundred bucks for similar dx11 performance and higher dx12 performance.

    Need a router recomendation

    You could also call your ISP and complain. They will either provide you a newer and better gateway device or they can at the least replace that one. Could be a bad unit. I would personally try this first before spending money on a new router.
  11. Here is a decent price on a motherboard, but it is used. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAFVV7EW5418 $125 with free shipping. If you don't already pick yourself up a better cooler. A H212 will work just fine with that chip or maybe a H7. You should be able to easily hit 4.5ghz on that CPU via overclock... if it is a good chip then 4.8ghz for a daily driver is also a good option. I would start out just aiming for 4.5ghz as I don't really know any 2600k's that couldn't hit that range. The only downside you will have with the 2600k is the fact it does not support pci-e 3.0, but unless you are moving to a very high end gpu this isn't going to be an issue. Pci-e 2.0 at 16x is equiv to Pci-e 3.0 8x. Which doesn't hamper most video cards more than a few fps on the high end. I think the ultimate question is what is your current budget. If you have the budget for a full build then that might be the way to go. If you only want to spend the minimum amount then the motherboard now and saving for a new build in the next year or 2 might be your best bet. At the very least this will let you wait until the 7nm AMD products hit which I have a feeling will shake up the PC market and cause prices to come down considerably on consumer grade cpu's.

    Final Verdict - $1500 Gaming PC Secret Shopper pt4

    If you are able to do it yourself then you can build much better for the price. Like the build I just tossed together below. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor $259.99 @ Amazon CPU Cooler Antec - KUHLER H2O 1250 98 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $64.00 @ Amazon Motherboard Asus - PRIME Z390-P ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $139.85 @ Amazon Memory G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory $109.99 @ Newegg Storage Intel - 660p Series 512 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive $89.99 @ Amazon Storage Hitachi - Ultrastar 7K3000 3 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $65.50 @ Amazon Video Card EVGA - GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB Black Video Card $698.99 @ SuperBiiz Case Cooler Master - MasterBox MB520 RGB ATX Mid Tower Case $55.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair - CX (2017) 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $29.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $1544.28 Mail-in rebates -$30.00 Total $1514.28 Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-12-26 10:34 EST-0500 The thing is even if you don't know how to build your own... chances are you have a friend who does. If now forums like this are easy ways to find someone willing to help for a small fee (case of beer in most cases). I use to build and sale custom machines for a while, but these days it just isn't as feasible as it use to be. Plus it was just one of the many side ventures I tried out before having kids. For example if it was me doing a custom build in the old days I would have shaved off about 100 in parts as a general profit. Then I would have offered a warranty, overclocking and various other "upgrades." They are where I made most of the profit. A $50-$75 warranty was pure profit 95% (or more) of the time and when something did happen I would get the parts for free from the manufacturers. I would just be out the time to repair the item and the return shipping. The problem was some machines that were very budget oriented could get the parts cheaper than even I could due to buying in bulk. They also were able to have much lower profit margins in some cases... so to be competitive with bargain builds I really had to cut my profit on the price and try to recoup it via people paying for the warranty. Then again I only did this temporarily on the side and most of my sales were over ebay(before the changed the payment hold periods) and craiglist. If all went perfect I made about 150-175 per machine.. so for 2-3hrs or work that isn't terrible money, but you would need a high volume of sales to live off of it. Then you would have to either work your ass off or hire in more help to keep order to ship times down.
  13. At this level the memory speed makes very little difference in the way of performance. The biggest difference is going to the the power consumption on gddr6 vs gddr5x. I mean there is about another 2gb of bandwitdh possible, but on this level card that isn't going to make a noticeable difference.

    How to disable factory OC in EVGA Precision XOC?

    You are handling this the wrong way. That card should still be under the 3 year warranty. So call them up and setup an RMA. You are able to RMA even if you purchased it second hand. They will send you back the same card or one that is comparable. I mean this is all assuming you have ruled out driver issues. If it is the card it will probably continue to degrade overtime if it is already having issues. So just RMA it and enjoy a card that hits the proper clocks. So a quick google tells me the card 1080ti was released on - March 10, 2017 That means you have warranty coverage until March 10, 2020 via EVGA.

    Better a 2nd powerline or an ethernet split?

    Get a cheap gigabit switch. The splitter will only cause you headaches. I doubt it even isolates the traffic so you will now start having network collisions(something that doesn't happen with a switch). Looks like only 1 port is active at a time. Spend like 8 more bucks and get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Unmanaged-GREENnet-Switching-Protection/dp/B001QUA6R0/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1545835755&sr=1-2-spons&keywords=gigabit+switch&psc=1

    What Did You Get for Christmas?

    I got to see my twins experience there first real xmas. They were too young last year to even know what was going on, but this year they were able to full get in to opening their gifts. Now this dad hasn't got his gift yet, but I am planning to get a new camper trailer (Currently leaning towards a 2019 Keystone 38')
  17. I would second this, but I will mention this because it can matter. How much longer if any is left on your warranty? If the warranty is up on it then I would consider changing it just for the fact that the big AIO companies will cover components damaged by an AIO that fails. So lets say in 6 months you have a leak. If you are using that one and don't have warranty coverage anymore... well you are S.O.L in that case. If you have a new one with warranty coverage then you would be fine. They would have you send them all the stuff and they would write you a check to replace it all (in most cases). So it comes down to peace of mind in that case. Is $100-$140 worth another 2-4 years of warranty coverage?
  18. If those cases had more ready access to room ambient air which I would expect on water cooling then that is probably the difference. The 7700 is going to be more limited by the ambient temp inside the case, which in that small of a case can easily add another 5-8c to the temps.

    These can be spendy, but they might be the best long term option. These are industrial grade enclosures for single tower machines a the way to servers. They have a pretty good filtration system and are intended for this type of environment. I am sure there are cheaper options for a similar product. Just wanted to toss this out there https://www.dustshield.com/shop/standard-tower-cpu-ds191/

    That board will work just fine. The 2200g will also come with a very capable cooler.
  21. While I do agree piracy has hurt the music industry a pretty good deal... it is far from obliterated. If anything it hurt the giant record companies the most. You could always pirate music by recording it off the radio and many many people did just that long before the web made music even more accessible in a illegal capacity. So while CD sales are probably stupid low now... you still have artists being paid from streaming service contracts, digital downloads, etc. You also have ways for people to release their content and bypass the big record studios who were taking the majority of the proceeds anyways. You have streaming services like youtube that lets the music creators like thefatrat be the sole beneficiary. So while piracy did hurt the major record companies... the shift in how content is delivered has made this one of the best times to be an artist and get noticed compared to those older days too. The profits might be less than they were for some, but if you do it right you can still make a decent living off of your creativity.

    On phone atm so can't give you partlists. Fron what you describe there isn't a lot of cpu requirement here and the same goes for graphics. Depending on what is cheapest in your area I would do something like a 2200g and cheap micro board with 4 ram slots or same type of board but with a 8300/8400 intel chip. SSD I would get a dependable unit like a samsung 860 or WD blue. This could be a 2.5" or m.2. The latter making your build that much simpler. For the case I would go with a small form factor with nice air filter coverage. Then just make sure you have positive air flow in your case. You would need to clean the filters probably every 3 to 4 months and maybe consider blowing out the case every year or 2, but it should keep out the large majority of dust. You should be able to do a full build for 300-450 would be my guess. This is way more expensive than it should be. Ssd prices are a higher than they should be atm.

    $10 Steam gift card giveaway to give back to you guys <3

    lol the funny thing is I chose 137 and then changed it to 337 because I thought I needed to be closer to the middle of the range. Congrats to seon.
  24. Disabling the cores isn't going to do anything but reduce temps. The current Ryzen offerings have pretty firm soft caps when it comes to overclocking. You can get over them slightly, but the amount of voltage and cooling required are not feasible outside of bragging rights. 4.1 is about the best you will do on gen 1 Ryzen. That being said if you playing at those resolutions then the bottleneck shouldn't get on your cpu unless the game is very light on graphic load. So those resolutions in csgo would cause the cpu to be the bottleneck, but your fps should be high enough it doesnt matter anyways. We get too hung up on bottlenecks. The only thing that matters is this... are you able to get close to your monitor refresh rate before the cpu becomes a bottleneck. If so then all is fine. You don't need 140 fps on a 60hz monitor.
