  1. The picture shows that the load is virtually zero. Which is desktop at idle. I can say that it is around 55-60 degrees running Cinebench r15. Also this is slightly overclocked stock is 3600MHZ.
  2. I am running the D-15 on my 9900K and although I am a newb and don't push it hard temps seem great 30 degrees or less at idle and 60 degrees during cinebench.
  3. This is my first build so I did not think to research how much power the eight pin connector could supply and yes with a processor capable of drawing more than 150w easily it makes sense to attach the 4 pin also.
  4. So after doing some reading and assembling my PC. I had read that it is not necessary to plug both power sockets on the motherboard in. This is true the computer will boot and is plenty useable with only the eight pin plugged in. However I can tell you with out a shadow of a doubt if you are using a Gigabyte Aorus Pro wifi or similar board and an Intel i9-9900K processor it is very beneficial to utilize both power plugs on the motherboard. Perhaps someone with proper equipment could put together the data to prove this. Most of my bios is in auto settings and the processor is sitting at 4800MHZ at idle. Temps were about 60 degress Celsius using a NH-D15 CPU cooler. Cinebench score rose 27 points the only change was plugging in 4 pin power. If this has been covered my apologies for a redundant post.
  5. Not particular to a vendor however I live in Canada
  6. I have recently purchased everything, but a graphics card. Needed to recover from the first spending spree. So what I have purchased currently is: i9-9900k Gigabyte Auros pro wifi 32gb ram G.Skill Noctua NH-D15 Corsair air 540 case Corsair 850 psu 2 Sandisk ultra 500gb ssd Not sure the build info is relevant or not, the 2070 super is as high as I will go for a card however there are so many choices, currently looking at gigabyte wind force oc. Is there a better choice?
  7. So am I correct in thinking the i7-7700 would be a big step up from my i5-6500?
  8. Being old school I am biased to intel processors and cannot be swayed even though AMD is a better deal. What would be the upgrade path for VR flight simulation?
  9. I am new to pc gaming, recently purchased a used system i5-6500 MSI B150 Mortar motherboard 16GB ram G.Skill RipJaw 2 500GB SSD SanDisk Nvidia GTX1070 Founders edition I am using this system for VR and it seems to do OK. However I would like to run DCS World flight simulator in VR and am curious if it is worth it to max out the motherboard and upgrade to a i7-770K or save for a new cpu mobo combo?
