  1. Then what mouse do you recommend? I’ve heard nothings been nothing but praise for the 502 line, even the new Hero is great with the thinner cable. So what get the 903? What about keyboards? Can they be wireless and still hold up to their wired counterparts? because from what I’ve seen of ROCCAT’s new Vulcan Aimo 120, it’s going to be a show stopper.
  2. 4TB SSD are expensive (around $700 the last time I checked), wire mouses are better, 16GB is all I need for gaming, 2080 Ti isn’t worth it as it’s also more expensive. Speakers might change for the Dynaudio LYD studio 7, got a guy that’s selling a pair for $640. As for 9 series 8 core, why?
  3. But the X product page lists a possibility of 360 in the top and a 420 in the front?

Rad placement! In the top, as per what I’ve found out about the X, the 360 and the 420 in the front. Now my question is, with the fans, will I have enough room for everything?
  5. So I’m getting the new Evolv X case and I wanted to add a small display for my temps, like this - Build here I really love the idea of it. I’m thinking of sticking it in the power supply window but I don’t know if it’ll fit, I’ve been looking for hours on trying to find the measurements on it- even tried going off the actual power supply but I’m at a loss at what to do. Any ideas? thanks
  6. So I’m looking into getting the new evolv X once it comes out, and I’ve been dabbling in getting storage to fit. Now I’d only be using the three visible 2.5” slots in the back of the case because I honestly don’t need 9 SSDs. I’d be adding VTech covers to match my build. Now my current idea is to have a 500gb boot SSD, 1 TB m.2 game storage, a 1TB SSD for backup and lastly a 4TB SSD for movies. I don’t want any HHD because I want it to be quiet. Thoughts? Thanks!
  7. So I have two options 1.) Corsair Dominator 16 GB DDR 4 3200 (2x8GB) Timing of 15-15-15-36 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XxcMnQ/corsair-memory-cmd16gx4m2b3200c16 2.) G.Skill Trident Z RBG 16 GB DDR 4 3200 (2x8GB) Timing of 14-14-14-34 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/gT38TW/gskill-tridentz-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-f4-3200c14d-16gtzr thoughts?
  8. Hey so need 6 fans in my case and I’d like them to be RBG. They’d be on radiators so I’d like things to be kept cool and quite any ideas? thanks! my only ideas are the Corsair HD120s
  9. But don’t SSD don’t improve games, just load times right?
  10. So my friend has two Samsung 960 EVO 250GB M.2’s and he wants to upgrade his storage. He doesn’t have any other storage in his PC, should he go with something like WD 4TB Internal hard drive or upgrade the M.2’s? He wants a lot of storage because the 500GB isn’t cutting it for his steam/movie collection. He has space for either one hard drive or two SSD’s.
  11. I’d also like to note that I changed the SSD to a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5”
  12. Changed our the PSU to 650, want the SSD for the speed and a 1TB will handle enough storage I’ll need for steam and the 4TB for all of the backup/movies I have. As for the overclocking, I want to get something stable first before trying it, seeing if it makes a difference, if it does I’ll keep it if not then I’ll stop, pretty simple.
