  1. My mobo is already 9th gen capable when I got it, says so in the box. I changed my mind and maybe get a locked i9 instead and not worry about anything in the next 4 years(?). Any suggestion for a cpu cooler for the locked i9? Be quiet is too expensive here. Facepalm on this one cause I just used the xmp(?)profile. I'll check on it when I get home. AC oddysey, my monitor is freesync capable and I'm just using the nvidia g-sync driver. I just need it to stay above 60fps. So I'm planning to get the locked i9 instead so I won't have to buy a new mobo.
  2. current specs; i5 8400 asrock z370 pro 4 rtx 2070 g skill 2666mhz (2993) 16gb antec gold 650w gold rated pixio 1440p 144hz monitor I have a slight issue with my monitor, whenever my frame rate drops below 60 I get a little stutter. It's a bit annoying and I want to fix it. I can't decide if OC is worth it just because at 1440p it's more gpu bound than cpu bound. I'm not aiming for stable 144 frames on 1440p anything between 80-100 is fine for me. My rig is mostly for gaming and some light streaming. For the i7 9700k I need a new mobo and an expensive cooler. so is the 9700k worth it? future proof? or should I just get the 9700f and save up for the next gen gpu? I get atleast 15,000 yen(150usd) of spending money each month so.
  3. I bought this thing for like 68,000 JPY (650 usd) in december. Now I am planning to sell this to my gf who is currently thinking about building her own gaming pc for 50,000 JPY (500-550usd). Is it worth trading the rtx 2070 for the rx 5700xt? I own a freesync monitor 1440p 144hz. Now my monitor isn't officially supported by nvidia gsync drivers but I think it works just fine, it might be smoother if I get the amd gpu tho. I am considering the rtx 2070 super oc which costs about 72,000 JPY (700usd).

    GSP 300 vs Arctis 5

    So which one is better? same price point of 100$ Feel free to recommend more headsets at this price point thanks! Also I do not want a separate mic because I do not want extra clutter on my desk. I play pubg/rainbow 6 these types of shooters so I need audio to be clear and also mic quality.
  5. Any idea on how to re attach the foam on my hs50?
  6. Well my mistake, So the fans on the bottom are for intake; the more you know thanks guys. I just watched jayztwocents vid about the overheated ssd aswell I just got worried since these things ain't cheap.
  7. I currently run my rig with my ssd under my GPU, Which I then realize my GPU is exhausting hot air all over my ssd. Will it affect my ssd significantly? I have a Samsung 850 evo 250gb, Max temps of my gpu under load is around 70-80c. I have the nzxt 500 and I mounted my ssd directly below the exhaust of my gpu.
  8. That was my initial thought, seems like this is a really hard question. For future proofing is the i7 better?
  9. Says here on the box of my mobo it can handle a 9th gen. Also I have the 144hz on 1440p monitor idk man sometimes the i5 8400 falls short in some games.
  10. Hello guys I really need advice before jumping the gun here, So I'm currently in Japan and I'm going home to my country in may where I'll be able to sell my i5 8400. (Idk how to sell it here in JP) I got a choice between i5 9600k 32,000 yen vs i7 8700 37,000 yen (50 usd difference). I just want to get that sweet spot for me at 80fps on all Games at 1440p. Maybe a little streaming as well. I can't wait for zen 2 because that's the only window I have selling my (current) i5 8400. Also my motherboard is Asrock z370 pro 4 ranked in the tier list as Tier C Value gaming. I know this mobo has weak VRMs but I'm only gonna be doing mild OC on the i5 9600k should I be fine? I Have the Coolermaster hyper 212x for cpu cooling and a nzxt h500 case. Current specs are; i5 8400 Cooler master hyper 212x Msi ventus rtx 2070 Asrock z370 pro 4 G.skill Trident z ddr 4 16gb 2666mhz (2800mhz) Antec neogold 650w gold plus Samsung 850 evo 250gb 1tb hdd Display: pixio 267 144hz 1440p freesync
  11. Z370 pro 4 asrock currently in Japan, budget is around 5,000 yen (45$-50$)
  12. I currently have the hyper 212x, I bought this cooler without actually thinking it through. I hate everything about it aesthetically, performance is OK tho but doesn't matter since I'm not gonna oc anymore. Looking for a decent downdraft cooler that doesn't interfere with ram, Looks good rgb or na as long as it's black or tiny bits of white. Cooling performance isn't a top priority just enough to cool a i7 8700 non k.
  13. Is it safe to vinyl wrap the top part of my Hyper 212x heatsink? Only the top part I'm not hampering any airflow whatsoever. There's just too much silver and it's messing with my color scheme. Or should I just put some painted acrylic with double sided tape on top of it.
  14. Yea budget wise and also performance wise i5 8400 to i7 8700 at 1440p doesn't give me that much fps anyway because my gpu does all the work, I'll just wait and see I'll just keep the mobo and ram for now I guess.
  15. Currents specs: i5 8400 Z370 pro 4 g skill 2666 mhz (2993oc)16gb rtx 2070 msi ventus cooler master hyper 212x antec negold 650w Is it worth to upgrade my current cpu to an i7 8700? my current mobo's vrms are not that good for oc so i'll stick with the base clock speed. Or is it a better option to see the price of zen 2 and buy a new mobo (and cooler?) i can rma the gskill ram and get faster clock speeds since its still new. which one will be better in terms of price and performance? I am currently playing in 1440p 144hz freesync (gsync driver) And want to increase my fps a bit more.
