    Random freezes when playing games

    Full system specs please
  2. Crypto currency mining on GPU's are basically dead after the crash last year. Its not worth it unless you pay zero for your energy bill. Otherwise you likely will actually lose money rather than make money as a result of the increased power consumption.

    Bowser is the New President of Nintendo of America

    I would be a little leary and afraid.. he previously worked at EA.. one of the worst companies for doing right by the customers... RIP..

    Ram Underclocked

    you need to go into your BIOS and turn on your XMP profile to run the ram at 1866. By default, intel only officially supports 1333mhz out of the box for DDR3.
  5. It all depends on what you want. Hardware wise it wasnt great, but there is so much more that is great from case manufactures, peripherals etc.. to openly declare it a flop is click bait title at best and ignorance at its worst.

    New case for a friend

    Problem is going to be making sure the case supports EATX.

    Very weird shut down issue

    it should. It was an issue with the OCP, or Over Current Protections on the units. If it is faulty, it should trip when testing it.

    Very weird shut down issue

    Early units of the G3's had issues. Its possible that you may have a faulty unit.

    Rtx 2080ti worth the upgrade?

    regardless, most GPU manufactures will still honor the warranty even if purchased 2nd hand. Usually all they will require is the serial number of the card.

    Rtx 2080ti worth the upgrade?

    RTX cards have only been out for 6 months.. RMA that thing.

    Corsair fan solution

    you can buy the node pro separately. You can also daisy chain most things like the RGB strips such as how @LukeSavenije has posted and suggested. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/CORSAIR-LINK/CORSAIR-Lighting-Node-PRO/p/CL-9011109-WW

    Gsync Compatible Monitor issues

    So after about 8-10hrs of gaming yesterday between Final Fantasy XIV, Apex Legends, & Assassin's Creed Odyssey, seems installing the monitor drivers did the trick as I did not experience one random black screen flicker the whole time yesterday. Thank you for the tip and assistance in resolving this.

    Can I use the Corsair rm750x

    yes you can use the RM750 just fine. You only need the 1 8 pin, the other is supplemental and not required.
