  1. What is your budget? Does the budget include peripherals or do you have everything? Monitor, keyboard, mouse, flight controls?
  2. 1000 - 3000 $ includes everything from getting the job done (3600 + rx580) up to extreme high end (3900X/9900k + 2080 ti)
  3. A friend of mine recently got much more time at his hands (motorcycle accident) and is already heavily into racing sims on PS4. He now wants to get into PC and send me a screenshot of a 8700k + 1080 ti prebuild for 2090 €. He wants to go for 4k @60 Hz. I don't play any racing simulations but i guess 1440p ultrawide 75 Hz or higher with freesync is probably a better place to look. The monitor is not included in the budget. The Games he wants to run: - Assetto Corsa Competizione - iRacing - RaceRoom Racing Experience some pubg I told him about the Ryzen release but he does not want to wait. So my approach Either 9600k (maybe 8700k if he wants the i7 brag bonus, i don't know...)

I personally would prefer AMD for future upgrades but i don't think he will touch the PC for anything but dusting it off. X470 only for maybe future PCIe 4.0 support. Could save another 50 € with a B450. I still chose Overclocking capability so maybe i can make a initial OC for him but i guess a DR4Pro is a bit overkill... So I am asking for general advice concerning the build and those games combined with monitor recommendations. Region is Germany. PS: how do you guy insert the pcpp list in the nice format?
  4. In most countries I am aware of those stickers have no legal relevance whatsoever. Just a way for manufacturers to sell customer there overpriced service.
  5. Yeah, i know. It is more like a "where do you live that it is not illegal for a company to claim, opening a panel would void the warranty" kind of meaning. It is probably soldered anyways.
  6. Where do you live? Opening a bottom panel should not void your warranty. If you want to make sure check your manual. SSD upgrades are usually listed as user upgrades. And to do those you have to open the panel. Just make sure not to accidentally spill a drink on it because that would void your warranty for sure.
  7. I am not sure but it seems that ASUS did solder the RAM on the pro 15 (i found teardowns of the UX550VD and the UX580GE). Maybe take a look and open the bottom panel. It should be obvious if there is a slot free or not.
  8. Maybe a used 1070 or 1070 ti? They have 8 GB of VRAM and should be around the same price.
  9. What is your over all budget? Most of the time it is better to put together the best overall build possible for a certain amount of money. Recommendations for specific products make sense if you already have everything else and just one to upgrade one part. Do you have a monitor? What resolution and refresh rate do you intent to run? What kind of games? More esports or cinematic aaa?
  10. Is there anyone who has tested this? Sadly I don't have the money to get ten of each and test clock speed at given voltage. It was my belive, that if you are getting an after market cooler anyway the X offers not much of a value other than convenience. There are plenty of articles comparing 2700 oc vs 2700x stock but I did not find any reliable data that would indicate binning. I am on the phone though, so I got feed up on research pretty fast. If I cherry pick my examples there are benchmarks with OC both and show a higher OC for the non X but no background info on how testing and OC has been done.
  11. If you can wait a month or two Amd will launch ryzen 3rd Gen. And a i9 is kind of ludicrous considering for just gaming a 9600k is fine. If you want to stream or have some professional workloads you can consider the 9700k or the 9900k. And if you want to maybe save a few bucks and don't want the i5 you could get a 8700k.
  12. If you want to oc manually there is no point in getting the 2700X. Just get the non X and a decent cooler. Maybe consider something else than asus in the mobo department. There are better options in the current motherboard generation. Check out gigabytes and asrock x470 lineup. You get a better board probably for less money. If you can wait a bit more than a month the new Ryzen 3000 series is about to launch. Rumors speak of a massiv performance increase. But rumors being rumors and some people get too excited sometimes. we are probably still looking for a decent increase. I would actually only look at ssds with 500 gb or more with that kind of budget. Maybe not Samsung because you pay for a performance plus only very few applications can utilize.
  13. Depending on your location consider a Vega 56 or even a 64. In some regions there are crazy deals.
  14. Well, you are in both cases cooling with ambient air. The water in the aio has a higher thermal mass so it needs some time to hit equilibrium. But if it is hot the radiator and fans need some time to cool it down. An air cooler heats much faster but also need just seconds after the load is gone to get back to idle temp. In both cases you can only get to a few degree above ambient because you don't have a compressor and heat exchanger running wich would turn your cooler in a refrigerator. And a dark rock pro 4 or a nhd 15 will probably outperform 95% of the available aios on the market.
  15. kind of fitting how your profile .gif is turning
