  1. Thank you for the info! I know upping the audio aspect of the experience in movies and games can get very expensive, and I don't want to buy something just to find out I don't notice any difference, so knowing what I'm looking for will have a much better result.
  2. Awesome, thank you for the info!
  3. I have already read it, but I would like some examples of noticeable differences in sound quality so I can understand it with my caveman brain Thank you for the recommendation though, the article is informative but doesn't really touch on examples but rather the technical aspects, unless I missed something.
  4. Hey everyone, For the sake of keeping the title as short as possible, I know DACs aren't the only thing to consider when thinking of higher quality audio. My question is: what are some examples of the jump in audio quality when applied to gaming (footstep clarity, gunshots, etc.), music (obvious overall quality in sound), or movies (again, obvious overall quality with some sound effects coming to life more). Many thanks P.S. I'm using onboard audio with Steelseries Arctis 3s, so higher quality sound is a foreign concept nor do I know any technical details.

    ms-78511 with a 2080?

    Unfortunately upgrading to a different graphics card is much easier than the Motherboard, CPU and RAM. Mobo, CPU and RAM will need to be upgraded together, but luckily prices for DDR4 have dropped from their outrageous prices a few months back. I would figure getting a lower end Mobo, 16GB DDR4, and maybe a Ryzen 5 2600 would run about $400. I'm unfamiliar with the prices of Intel's 8th and 9th gen i5 processors, but when it comes to tight budgets, ryzen is a good go-to.

    Looking for a Good PC Case

    I would recommend the Coolermaster MB511 as a nice looking budget case. Goes for $50 I think, it also has an RGB counterpart that goes for $60 on sale. I would also take a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M. It goes for $90 on sale ($80 after a $10 mail-in rebate). Lots of room and a nice plain black case if you're not looking for anything too flashy. It also has a white and black counterpart that is more expensive but also comes with 2 Halos RGB fan frames in the front.
  7. Right. The reason I was considering the H150i is just if I wanted to overclock later on. Thanks for the insight!
  8. When it comes to cooling I would prefer to go overkill just to keep components in better shape. Thank you for the insight, it helps a lot!
  9. Right, thank you for the correction. I've only owned a dinky H50 and that did a mediocre job cooling my 4790k, so I have no knowledge whatsoever on the performance of larger AIOs haha.
  10. Hey everyone, I'm planning a build that would run a 9700k, so I was wondering if there are any considerable differences in cooling performance between different sized radiators, or in this case the Corsair H115i or H150i. I do plan to run the processor at stock speed pretty much all of the time. Many thanks
  11. The reason I was wondering about this was because I was watching one of Hardware Unboxed's videos on RAM, and he brought up video editing/processing as one of the main reasons to have more RAM. Thanks for the tips!
  12. No worries, thank you for insight. I also figured DDR5 RAM would be expensive upon launch, but was also concerned about how long DDR4 would stick around in terms of compatibility with mobos.

    AIO Fan Behind/In Front of Rad?

    Push vs. pull will both have to deal with air resistance due to the radiator, so the differences are almost negligible from what I've heard. As for the placement of the rad, you would want it where it would get cool air passing through, so either top or front mounting would be optimal.
  14. Hey everyone, I've been planning a new build and have come across a couple issues. I mainly use my PC for gaming (currently running 16 GB DDR3), and I am looking into putting 32GB into the new rig. The Mobo is the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon and supports dual channel memory. The first question arises: should I go with a quad channel kit (for aesthetic purposes), or a dual channel kit (for possibly better performance)? I guess the main question here is will the 2 sticks of RAM yield better performance than 4 sticks. The second question: I might get into video editing later on, so would 32GB or 64GB be better? (also, I am taking into account the anticipated release of DDR5 memory) Many thanks

    Using RGB with Z87 Mobo?

    Awesome. Thanks for the help!
