    GPU Backplate compability

    I currently have a Gigabyte RTX 2070 Windforce and would like to purchase a backplate made for Gigabyte RTX 2070 Gaming OC, would I be able to use that backplate on my GPU? What are the physical differences between different models of the same GPU?

    Best 2070 card

    What is a good 2070 card (that is under $550)? I currently have a Gigabyte Windforce, is that good?
  3. I found this used 4 CPU server motherboard for $39 on Walmart https://www.walmart.com/ip/CN-0RD317-N4822-FD006-Genuine-Dell-Poweredge-6800-Intel-Quad-S604-Server-Motherboard-RD317-Intel-Socket-604-Motherboards/328903637?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=7860&adid=22222222227158566721&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=268135585913&wl4=pla-445970935861&wl5=9004233&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117584434&wl11=online&wl12=328903637&wl13=&veh=sem and refurbished Xeon E5-2670 for $20 on serversupplies https://www.serversupply.com/products/part_search/pid_lookup.asp?pid=128782&gclid=Cj0KCQiAurjgBRCqARIsAD09sg-9ZXZnzH-um3fW6_kboRnC1QZdBzMGwi0yBIqLGCPimio7lOVHt_8aAqMlEALw_wcB which would come to a total of $119. Is this legit?
  4. I would want my PC to be special, so I have this idea to create graphic designs on cardboard paper and install it in my case in various parts. What I'm wondering is would it be safe to the airflow inside and would it work well?
  5. How well would it work to just fill up a liquid cooler with vodka? It would be cool to go around and be able to say that your PC runs on Vodka.

    Workstation/gaming setup

    I will be doing 3D modelling and rendering with Blender, video editing and gaming. Currently, I have these parts: - Ryzen 5 2600 - RTX 2070 - Strix B350-F Gaming - Ripjaws V-series 2400 MHz RAM - Crucial MX500 SSD - EVGA 650 Watt 80+ gold PSU My main questions are: 1) will the motherboard be sufficient for future CPUs, such as 12 core CPUs? How will it handle overclocking? I am willing to get another motherboard under $200. 2) will my RAM be fast enough to handle overclocking? 3) is RTX 2070 a good choice for 3D rendering? If Navi proves to be superior to RTX 2070, my plan would be to sell my RTX 2070 and get Navi instead. This would waste $100 (I bought the card at $480 and it would probably sell at $350 used) but I desperately need a computer right now and waiting is not an option. Another thing I considered would be buying a cheap 1050 TI to hold me for 2 months. What do you think?

    Radeon 3080 vs RTX 2070 vs CPU rendering.

    How is this a troll post? I want to know how the RX 3080 compares to a RTX 2070. Maybe someone knows from leaked information.
  8. Comparing these three cards: RTX 2070, (anticipated) AMD Radeon 3080 and AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (12 cores at 4.2 GHz), how would they perform in 3D rendering in applications like Blender? I'm mainly interested in how the two graphics card compare, and also how much faster they are than CPU.

    RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX Vega 64

    I'm buying the default version AMD releases with the blower style cooler since it's $100 cheaper than alternatives. Is that good enough?

    RTX 2070 vs Radeon RX Vega 64

    My usage: I will need the card for 3D modeling/rendering, video editing and gaming. I will be buying a FreeSync monitor regardless of which card I choose According to benchmarks, the two seem very close in performance, but the Vega seems to be much faster in 3D rendering. Also, I read somewhere that when rendering, the Vega is able to utilize system RAM when the VRAM is full while the 2070 isn't able to, is this true? What are you thoughts?
  11. is the ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING good? it only have 3 eggs on newegg because people say it keeps breaking and having problems. Should I get it?

    help? is this legit?

    Just stop and think for a second. Why in the wide wide world would someone sell a graphics card that can easily be sold, even used, for $100, sell it for $15? If I were to tell you to sell a graphics card quickly, what price would you give it? You would probably give it a low price, but definitely not $15 unless you are a millionaire feeling generous. And generous millionaires won't be selling graphics card for $15, they would just do giveaways.

    Arctis 3 bluetooth problems

    I have Steelseries Arctis 3 bluetooth, and when plugged in through the 3.5mm connection, the bass seems to be louder in my left ear. Why is that? My ears and my computer is not at fault since the same issue does not arise from my Turtlebeach Recon X50. Also, the left ear cup squeaks quite a bit. Note: it was ordered through Amazon on June 30.
  14. I want a skin for my Steelseries Arctis 3 Bluetooth, but I can't find any. Should I just buy a random laptop skin and cut it? The side of the earcup is pretty flat so a skin should work.

    Audio Technica vs SteelSeries

    I know Audio Technica is a professional monitoring headphone, but hear me out. I'm debating between buying the Audio Technica M30x and the Steelseries Arctis 3 Bluetooth I want a pair of headphones for music, gaming and occasional music/video production. It would be of great convenience to have wireless headphones since I will be bringing it to school everyday. My main concern is, how is the audio quality of the Steelseries Arctis 3? How is the audio quality when using Bluetooth? How about when it is plugged in using the headphone jack? How does the audio quality of the headset itself when plugged in compare to the Audio Technica M30x? If the difference is little between the two pairs, I'll take the Arctis 3. I really like the look of the Arctis 3. After all, I still care about how I look
