  1. I first noticed this issue from the Discord voice and video settings section. If I had the microphone from my bluetooth earbuds enabled then I could not hear anything, but if I had my default laptop mic enabled I could hear things fine. Additionally, when I joined a voice channel on Discord with the bluetooth earbuds mic enabled I could not hear anything from other applications. Initially I thought this was a Discord issue, but I just now found that the same thing happens if I am viewing the "Recording" window in sound settings. If the bluetooth mic is enabled, I can't hear audio from anything; and as soon as I disable it audio starts playing fine again. After a brief search online I couldn't find anyone else having the issue, so decided to come here instead. If anyone has some insight that may be useful it would be greatly appreciated. Needless to say, this issue has been a pain in the ass. If you're curious, I've had the issue occur on AirPods, and I'm using Windows 10 Home x64 (1809).As far as I know all of my audio and bluetooth drivers are up to date. I have not personally tested with any other bluetooth headsets although I did find someone who was having the same issue with Beats Solo3 Headphones on Windows 10 Pro x64 (1803).
  2. Is there anywhere that I can go for some of the top performing ram options? I'm curious as to what my budget will allow.

    How good is EVGA's warranty on DOA products?

    Email verification / account transaction proof / transaction numbers from Newegg should be valid proof of purchase right?

    Aha... I'm just making sure. I appreciate it.

    Thanks, I hadn't even thought of that.
  6. I've been looking at this sale on newegg for an EVGA 2070. ( https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487412 ) It has pretty low reviews from January but I think that's just due to some defective products from Q1. Considering EVGA's warranty policies, if on the off chance that I get a defective product, will I be fine or will it be money down the drain?
  7. Obviously the XC ultra will perform the best, but is it worth the extra $100 or will it be unnoticeable? I'm going to be gaming/video editing/rendering if that makes a difference. Hardware comparisons: https://www.evga.com/products/Compare.aspx
  8. I'm not the most experienced in the field so I've been making most of my decisions off of data that people have put out there rather than my own knowledge, but according to this the 2070 performs better and then the 2080 is better than both. https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare/GeForce-RTX-2070-vs-Radeon-VII-vs-GeForce-RTX-2080/4001vs4050vs3989
  9. Is there a benefit I'm missing from that gpu besides the extra vram? From first glance it looks like it's significantly more expensive with worse performance. I'm pretty sure I won't need the extra 8gb of vram so seems like a waste of money. Also, I've read that the Intel 660p doesn't do well under stress which is why I chose the combination of samsung storage options instead.
  10. I appreciate you putting this build together, but it seems like overall it's just a downgrade. Essentially it's jut a tier lower build performance wise while only saving me a fraction of the cost.
  11. Gaming/streaming/video editing/rendering.
  12. I made sure that the second fan for nhd15 will have clearance over the ram, but I'm not really sure how to approach the other dimensional issues that may arise. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Is the NH-D15s enough for the 9700k?

    Did you get the second fan?

    Is the H100i enough for the 9700k?

    Will do. Thanks

    lol, I'm contemplating between the 4 of them really but wasn't sure where to post them all together so just made two posts.
