    How does intel z390 raid work

    How does intel z390 raid work

    a 2tb and a 1tb in raid 0, i want 2 1tb partitions on 2tb drive one of which is not raid, mothrboard raid are hardware raids right?
  6. There is an option in BIOS for raid, is it any different from RAID in windows?
  7. So I can go with a 499 2070 and it would have roughly same die quality as more expensive ones? Why would they charge so much for overclocking then?
  8. I was going to buy a RTX 2070, but found a lot of bad reviews, are they really that bad? Are there any "trustworthy" 2070s? Also, they have different cards clocked at different speeds, do cards with higher speeds have a better die?
  9. So I have a bit of difficulty in choosing my motherboard, should I choose ROG STRIX Z390-H GAMING or ASUS PRIME Z390-A? https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z390-H-GAMING/ https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/PRIME-Z390-A/
  10. would cooler master ma620p or ma610p do the job just fine? I don't really care about the temp as long as they don't throttle
  11. Do i need water cooler for overclocking to 5ghz for 9700k? I am thinking about a ma610p or a ma 620p, which one will be better?
  12. Should I go with Barracuda pro?
  13. I will be probably doing some overclocking, I just thought a 750w will be good for it. (with upgrade ability for other parts considered) I don't really know what a hybrd drive does and I will probably go with a barracuda pro compute instead (the one with 5 years of warranty). Does the pro really matter by the way? A normal barracuda compute is like 30-40 bucks cheaper.
  14. Some gaming, some photoshopping and video editing, and some light streaming. I will probably be using it for a while so I went with higher specs than I need.
  15. The following is my specs with price and link, can someone please help check for incompatiabilities and bottlenecks? Suggestions are also welcome.
