  1. That’s a good combination, the Cpu and gpu will always have one limit each other but if it’s a good combination it’s usually negligible. T
  2. So I just bought a msi optix mag271cqr and Its working great, Got gsync to work no problem. I'm noticing though on my second monitor which I used before as my primary now is having this flickering issue whilst im gaming. Its not a big deal but I notice it flickers while im gaming on my primary monitor. Doesn't happen while watching netflix or youtube or anything like that just while gaming. It also randomly goes black for a second then comes back to normal. Anyone have a idea what could be causing this?
  3. Does the whole computer restart? Like reboot windows ? Does it blue screen at all? Does your power supply fan stop spinning when it restarts? Is the computer on a hard surface for sufficient airflow to the psu? If it just restarts without a warning there are lots of things that can go wrong.
  4. Hi deon! Sounds like your system is unstable, for lack of better terms. Narrowing it down might be really hard but my first and the most obvious question is, are you overclocking at all? If you are you should disable c states entirely. It’s for power saving and a 9700k would crash the system if it’s even slightly overclocked I’ve even seen problems with c states at stock boost frequency’s. But here’s what I would do if I were in your position, if you’re not comfortable just disabling c states completely (which many do) then just go buy a power supply from amazon and Best Buy and test it. My opinion is that is it can be a power supply problem but computers are all over the place when they are on the Frits I’d also take your ram out one stick at a time and play with one stick and see if it crashes. But my guess is your cpu is wanting too much power and c states is blocking. I actually found a reddit post with someone with a similar problem to yours as well https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/b23wos/my_i7_9700k5ghz_crashes_when_i_set_the_power_c/
  5. I don’t feel like they suck. I think that’s a little harsh. But throwing out any sennheiser headset wouldn’t make sense either, i think he’s asking more specifics.
  6. Whoops editing my msg you have your power supply in the post
  7. Have checked your cpu / motherboard temps ? What are they looking like , when you say it’s a good chance it’s not overheating what do you mean by that lol?
  8. And honestly I used to have hyper x cloud 2s which are wired and great for the price but lately hyperx has been super cheap with there newer headsets which is a disappointment, at their price point I would get something better
  9. Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT Wireless Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HKVCVSY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_LYJuDbBWEB64V personally I like these over the Arctic’s. Wired mode is phenomenal sound and the wireless is still great but any headset over wireless there is a slight degrade in audio quality. But unless your a audiophile you really won’t care.

    rtx vs gtx

    It depends what cards you are comparing, a rtx 2080 outperforms a gtx 1080 and that goes true for all cards with the same last two numbers rtx 2060,2070,2080 vs gtx 1060,1070,1080 but the real question is, what is your budget for a gpu? Because that is the deciding factor, if you have no budget the best gpu consumer wise is a rtx 2080Ti

    rtx vs gtx

    Rtx cards are the newest line of nvidia graphics card while the gtx 1000 series is the line behind the rtx cards. Rtx cards have a special feature called ray tracing that makes your games lighting effects look better (not in all games, only a select few and it destroys fps) That’s the basic differences.
  12. Yes thats a rule of thumb but other factors like Cas latency plays into it to, like I said im sure a 3200 cl14 kit would outperform a 3600 cl18 kit. But if your case its so negligible between your choices I would just do 3600. in real world scenarios we are a 1-9 fps difference in games and work loads, seconds of difference. So dont sweat it
  13. so if were only comparing 3200 cl16 and 3600cl18 I would go with 3600 for sure. Maybe you can tighten the times yourself. But thats probably a better bet for you
  14. hello! so if were talking ryzen and ram there can be compatibility issues, kind of. Normally ram thats not labeled "Amd ram" can work it's just extra steps. From what I understand usually you can power cycle ram thats not booting correctly with ryzen and after about 6 boots itll read it and after that point it wont have any issues after that, (saw this in a tech deals video, you should check him out). But if you want a hassle free experience I would go with "amd certified ram", like Gskill FLARE memory, GSKILL Trident z NEO memory are two good choices. Also is there a reason you're doing such a expensive motherboard? You could get something cheaper for sure in your use case
