    StewySphinx65 got a reaction from Bruh1 in stock cooler thermal paste?   
    Stock will do, I always have some Thermal Grizzly lying about and like to change it but there shouldn't be much difference. Just make sure you put the right amount on but not too much.

    StewySphinx65 got a reaction from WambleCropped in Build compatibility help   
    In the future you can use PC part picker, It will identify any issues surrounding compatability and possible BIOS updates that may be required. Its also good for pricing.

    StewySphinx65 got a reaction from adrianisnick27 in What’s this black dot on my galaxy s8   
    I know that on the s10 there is a white dot in the same place that blinks when making a call, apparently it is something to do with the proximity sensor. To me it looks too big to be a dead pixel.

    StewySphinx65 reacted to Fasauceome in I'm fairly new!   
    Solid specs, but if you're solely focused on gaming, you can take the i9 down to an i7, maybe an 8700k, and a Z370 board will work just fine, and the NVMe drive can be taken down to SATA. Then, you might have room for a 2080 ti. If you don't have the room to customize that much, then your config is fine.

    StewySphinx65 reacted to Fasauceome in 600Wt PSU but efficient on low-level wattage   
    Now there's your problem. That calculator is known to vastly overestimate the recommended PSU wattage. I linked a decent PSU above.

    StewySphinx65 got a reaction from LightParticle in 600Wt PSU but efficient on low-level wattage   
    I would get something like a Corsair or EVGA power supply with a rating of 80+ Gold or above. A PSU with a rating of 80+ is the lowest when it comes to efficiency and 80+ Titanium is the highest efficiency.
     
    If you have a price range I can make some suggestions for you, are we talking less than $100 or up to $200?

    StewySphinx65 reacted to 2SidedPolygon in DDR4 what's better x16 or x8 Ram?   
    Just a theory here, I'm not actually that certain, but the x8 might perform marginally better due to less load on the memory controller.
