  1. Youd have to run the D15 in single fan mode when using this RAM because of clearance issues with 2 fans. Like i said, for quiet operation you'd want either the D15, Dark Rock Pro 4 or Freezer 50. These 3 perform very similar. Just a matter of what looks good in your opinion. Although the D15 with a single fan has the best RAM clearance of all of them.
  2. You could also go for something smaller like a Noctua NH-U12S or Arctic Freezer 34 Duo if you want so save some money. They will easily be able to cool upcoming ryzen processors. The big coolers like the D15, Dark Rock Pro 4 and Arctic Freezer 50 are just the best at staying quiet even under heavy load. Again, depends on what you want :D
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_learning_super_sampling#DLSS_1.0 There are 2 iterations of DLSS 2.0, maybe this is your infamous "3.0".
  4. A lot of games? How many do you think there are? From the top of my head i only know Metro Exodus, Final Fantasy XV and Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Battlefield V that run the first version of DLSS.
  5. Afaik there is no artifacting problem with moving content. Also DLSS 2.0 works with 1440p and 1080p aswell. Only DLSS 1.0 was restricted to 4K.
  6. There has to be a certain pressure to make proper contact. Most cooler's screws are made specifically to bottom out when you have enough pressure.
  7. Can confirm. The DT990 is better than any previous headset i've had. And it's unbeatable as a headset if combined with a modmic.
  8. Gaming headphones focus more on hearing enemies etc. and sacrafice sound quality in the process. Non-gaming stuff is much more likely to have better audio quality. Either way, for the most part gaming is just marketing to charge a premium for what is essentially just a bad headphone imo. But that's not only applicable to headsets... What's your budget?
  9. Wait for next week. The 5600X is likely to be a better CPU for also 300$.
  10. That's exaclty what i mean. I think it is important for benchmarks to at least include the DLSS enabled numbers additionally to the raw performance moving forward.
  11. I still think it's fair to include the DLSS enabled performance in games that support it because it's a no-brainer enabled setting. Or what would you do if you had the choice to run a game at 60 or 90 fps with everything else staying the same? I'm talking about game for game benchmarks. For example when i shop a GPU i look at the performance for the games i want to play. Also it doesn't depend on per-game training anymore. It's a universal algorythm now. But there is the point that the devs will have to work with NVIDIA to get it implemented. Hardware Unboxed revisited the games that currently support DLSS. And basically the conclusion was that it looks basically as good as native on the "performance" modes and sometimes even slightly sharper than native on the "quality" modes while still unlocking more performance. Think what you will about DLSS, but it will be a huge argument in future titles imo. Especially AAA titles will likely include DLSS for the most part in future releases. And what end-user really cares if the performance they see is raw core performance or AI upscaling performance if the result is basically just better performance either way?
  12. Phanteks P400A, beQuiet Pure Base 500DX, Corsair 4000D Airflow, Cooler Master H500. These are all great airflow-focused cases. Of course there is still the longer Meshify S2. But that one looks ugly imo.
  13. Currently there is no game that noticeably benefits from the extra 2 cores. The only uplifts you could see would be maybe in streaming or when doing heavy rendering with blender for example. If you really want the peace of mind. You can go for the 5800X, but no one can guarantee you that the extra 2 cores you pay for will be of any benefit to you. You have to decide that for yourself.
  14. When you're not running on ancient hardware or have heaps of bloatware installed, windows 10 is as smooth as it gets... I don't have any issues myself.
  15. We have no way of knowing if the extra cores will benefit you in the future. They could benefit you, but it's just as likely they won't do that much. However, we absolutely know that saving that money towards a better GPU will give you more performance now AND in the future. The GPU is just way more important for gaming-only builds.
