    Air cooling is king?

    My stupidly overpriced and probably a waste of money custom loop says otherwise....

    New RAM

    There are a large number of vendors to buy kits from such as G.Skill, Crucial, Corsair, Team, Team Vulcan, and Kingston but there are very few memory manufacturing companies. Memory modules consist of two pieces: DRAM Semiconductor Chips (Responsible for storing data) Printed Circuit Board (Connects the memory chips to the rest of the computer) There are only a handful of semiconductor manufacturers with the capability to produce DRAM chips, and they are Micron (Crucial), Samsung, and Hynix. The best currently available chips are Samsung B-Die. In general to find these, look for a kit rated at 3200MHz (C14).
  3. How would you rather people test the difference between GPUs? Using a less powerful processor could lead to potential bottlenecks thus could make, for example, an RTX 2070 appear on par with an RTX 2080.

    Questions about MSI GTX 980 SLI

    What motherboard do you currently have?

    Best software for optimize windows 10

    All software along those lines are virtually useless. The best way to have your system, specifically storage drives, configured is to allow for "regular" re-installation of your OS. For example, in my case the only things stored on my main drive (Samsung 970 EVO) are the OS, software, and games whereas personal files such as documents, videos, pictures, college work, etc. are stored on different drives or using cloud services. This allows me to re-install my operating system virtually at will without needing to worry about spending hours backing things up. You may not want to do this too often if you have potato internet obviously.
  7. Is it one game in particular or all games?

    Need help picking parts

    In general, one would go with an Intel based system over AMD when it comes to gaming but in this instance, with your budget and current market prices, the better decision would be to go with AMD in order to budget more towards the GPU. I would go with the Vega 64, the RTX 2070 is a ridiculously priced card for what it offers over the RTX 2060, and a Ryzen 5 2600 instead of your i5-9600K and RTX 2060. The Vega 64 basically stomps on the RTX 2060 in most titles:

  11. I wouldn't waste money buying a single other part before you rule out the operating system. Reinstall the OS and see if the problem still persists.

    Games crashing. Need help!

    Do you have a second graphics card to use and see if the crashes persist?
  13. When you start approaching the region of 1.45v you probably are going to experience degradation to a certain extent. But if you're an enthusiast do you really care if your chip lasts seven years as opposed to eleven for example?

    Pc crashing a lot

    Leave everything on default in the bios (i.e. disable XMP, any overclocks, etc.) and see if the system still crashes.

    Which RAM is better?

    https://www.amazon.es/G-Skill-tridentz-pc4-25600-Platform-f4-3200c16d-16gtzko/dp/B01JUB8T5W/ref=sr_1_49?__mk_es_ES=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=16gb+3200mhz&qid=1555841696&s=gateway&sr=8-49 The above kit is better than the two you linked (3200MHz @ C16) and they are virtually the same price on Amazon ES. 1.45v should get you C14/C15 at 3200MHz.
