  1. Yes buying a better GPU always prevails, but I’m trying to squeak out the best performance. I already have a KS and a 2080ti. I just wanted to see if the best ram would make a difference but it hardly does....
  2. Has anyone seen low latency (lets say CL16 or 17) with high frequency (lets say 3800 or 4000 MHz) affect gaming FPS? I'm starting to wonder that the "Cadillac" of ram really doesn't affect gaming. I know the age old statement of "does frequency really matter?" I get that, but does it even matter when latency is low and the frequency is high. I'm starting to wonder if any version of 3200 mhz ram is really all you need (coupled with a decent CPU and a great GPU) when it comes to affecting gaming. Any other input would be great.
  3. Tbh I have very little experience with GSkill. I typically purchase HyperX and they have been good to me, but the timings on this set of ram intrigues me to say the least.
  4. Any one have thoughts on this ram. The timing is super tight and somewhat unheard of at this frequency out the box. Just wanted peoples thoughts on it.
  5. Fair enough. I’m definitely not discrediting your experience, but I can’t say I’ve experienced the same thing. I have both the LG 27GL850-B and the LG 38GL950G. I use the 850 as my secondary monitor; however I do use the monitor for games that aren’t optimized for ultrawide. When using it it’s just as responsive/snappy and smooth as the 950G. Thus the reason I recommended to save some money and get a brighter screen. I do agree that HDR isn’t really relevant atm, but you would be “future proofing” yourself if you have a mid range HDR gaming monitor. Previously, I used a CRG9. For games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Division 2 HDR really brings the game to life. I will say I hope you are right as far as performance for the 950G in comparison to the new GN950G as I’ve already purchased the prior model.
  6. I bought the LG 38GL950G and honestly if you can wait I'd grab the new one. It will more than likely be cheaper and have higher HDR (HDR 600 >400). Additionally the 175hz is somewhat of a gimmick due to the limited bandwidth that Display port 1.4 can currently handle not to mention hardware with AAA titles on max settings will ever consistently reach. Basically you have to reduce your colors to chroma subsampling 4:2:2 to be able to reach 175 hz; however, you can run the monitor with full RGB @ 160 hz. WIth the new monitor maxing out at 160 hz it makes sense. You keep your amazing colors that this monitor is built for and at the same time have more than enough speed with the refresh rate with an added increase in peak brightness. Not to mention lose the Gsync module which will net the price lower. Its literally a no brainer and if I could go back I would grab the new model in a heartbeat.
  7. Thanks for the links! I will read them when I get a chance. All good stuff to get me started in the right direction.
  8. Hey Thanks! I will give this a try when I get home. I def need to take out two of the sticks first and see if it stabilizes. From there I will use your suggestions.
  9. That would suck if this is true for me because the ram I purchased wasn't cheap. It does seem to run perfectly fine @ 3600 though.
  10. Hey guys my XMP profile to rate my ram @ 4000mhz keeps crashing my PC. I am able to use XMP profile 1 @ 3600mhz no problem. I need to also disclose that I'm using two 16 GB dual sets running them in dual channel equaling 32 GB of ram on board. Should I increase my ram voltage slightly from 1.35 to see if it will stabilize? In its current state when XMP profile II is enabled it almost immediately gives me a blue screen once it boots in windows. I have not tried to run only 1 dual set as it would defeat the purpose since I purchased two sets. I am willing to do so if anyone thinks it would be beneficial. Any ideas would be great.
  11. Yeah I gotcha but my system was previously running on a CRG9 which is 5120 * 1440p and in some games on max settings I was getting well over 120 fps. I had to put v sync on which caused a lot of motion blur. My current system is running a i9 9900ks, 32 gb of 4000 mhz of HyperX predator ram, and an Asus 2080 TI OC’d. I was really hoping to have it run @ 10 bit, full rgb, and 144 hz. I’ll settle for 144 or 160 hz 8 bit, full rgb. After testing I didn’t notice any difference between 8 bit or 10 bit in games.
  12. No it’s not capped I can drive it at 8 bit 144 and 160 hz. I can also drive it at 175 hz @ 10 bit but with chroma sampling 4 2 2 instead of RGB. basically you have to give something up. The best the monitor can do without losing rgb or 10 bit is 120 hz.
  13. Sooooo running into an issue and I'm down to my last possible bit of hope. I just bought the 38 in Ultra Gear gaming monitor to replace my CRG9 that was running a little to slow for my taste. The LG is fast and responsive; however, its at a cost due to the limited bandwidth that display port 1.4 allows. To be able to keep 10 bit and full RGB in my Nvidia settings I have to run it at 120 hz. Has anyone ever used a Fiber Optic DP cable. They say their transfer rate is 32.8 gbs which is what I need to up my panel to its native 144hz. I just don't know if its all a gimmick or marketing nonsense. Thanks in advance.
  14. Sounds good. The KS is in stock @ Best Buy at the moment by the way. $524.99 isn't bad considering the standard 9900k is retailing at $471.99. Yeah the 2080 ti is all about playing at ultra settings without losing FPS. It also depends on what Monitor you are using. I use a super ultra wide so a 2070 won't work for me even a 2080 ti holds me back at times.
