  1. I touched the side of my RAM stick, which has a metal enclosure. I think there was a tiny tingling feeling, not a significant shock. Could this kill the RAM? I did not touch the contacts.
  2. For both system RAM and VRAM, how much of each do you typically use in 3D rendering? I ordered 16GB of RAM and an RTX 2070 which has 8GB of VRAM, is this enough? I'm aware that the Vega 7 have 16GB of HBM2, but it is a loud and hot card which may not be good for a college dorm (I'm going to college later this year).
  3. How many M.2 slots does the Asus Prime x470 Pro have? Also, do all RGB related things use 3 pin connectors, such as RGB fans, RGB fan frames and RGB strips? How many of those do this motherboard have?

    RT cores in Blender / Maya

    Can Blender or Maya take advantage of RT Cores to speed up rendering? I'm aware that VRay can use RT cores to speed up rendering, but that is hella expensive.

    Is this it of AMD Vega 7?

    So it went out of stock in 30 minutes, is this it? Will more cards come?
  6. I'm thinking of switching to a Vega 7 and returning my (unopened) RTX 2070 and AMD says they're releasing it on February 7, which is in 3 days. How long does it typically take for them to ship, and where do I order it from?

    Using RT Cores for 3D rendering

    Is there a way to use the RT cores for 3D rendering? The CUDA cores supposedly can do 1 gigaray/second while the RT cores can do 6 gigarays/second, so can I use the RT cores in applications like Blender or autodesk Maya?

    Gigabyte 2070 Windforce bad card?

    On NewEgg a lot of people (45% of ratings are 1 star) are complaining about their graphics card failing. Is there something wrong this this model? I already bought it on November 26 and the return period is only one month.

    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?
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  15. 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.

    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.

    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?

    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?
  19. 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.
  22. 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

    Bluetooth Headphones

    How good is the sound quality of bluetooth headphones? Is there a delay or loss of quality? Is it good enough for editing music or gaming? The specific headphone I have in question is the Arctis 3 Bluetooth. Also, when I plug the Arctis 3 Bluetooth headphone into my computer or phone, does it start sending audio through the cable rather than over Bluetooth so that I can experience better audio quality?

    Accidental Amazon Purchase

    I discovered I accidentally made a purchase on Amazon 4 hours after the purchase. It was still not shipped yet, but when I went to cancel all it says is "attempting to cancel" and "cancellation is not guaranteed". What will happen?
