  1. I know you may be happy with your 1080P monitor but I would seriously consider looking at 1440p or even better a 1440p ultrawide. The bump in resolution, especially ultrawide, is very noticeable in almost any game.
  2. I think you're better off waiting to see what Ryzen 3 offers. If Ryzen lives up to the hype it will likely be better than Intel even for gaming so your main system might as well be Ryzen based.
  3. Thanks for the feedback! From what I gathered the 3700X is likely going to be the most cost-efficient SKU. The reason I'm looking at the 3900X is mostly for the added cores for virtualization. I plan to run some docker containers and will likely do some media streaming from the system as well. So this will act like a server and a gaming system all-in-one.
  4. So I think its time to finally build a new system. I'm on the fence with doing my first custom loop or not. This is what I'm looking at part-wise (as long as reviews hold up with Ryzen 3). CPU: AMD Ryzen 3900X Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VIII Hero (or Formula if I do a custom loop) GPU: RTX 2080TI (Asus OC or Nvidia reference if I do custom loop) PSU: Asus Thor 850w Ram: Corsair Vengeance 64GB Storage: PCIE 4 1-2TB (waiting on reviews) Case: Fractal Design Mesify S2 (open to others) I'm also looking at the Asus PG35V now that it's finally starting to ship, of course, I want to see reviews on it first. Some things to note: I've normally gone with an AIO in the past as its easy and I don't have to maintain anything. My current build (in signature) has held up well until just recently (I think the SSD is going). Budget isn't really an issue but at the same time, I am looking to make somewhat smart decisions as I plan to have this system for several years while only having to do minor upgrades (GPU) over time. I am open to keeping my current 1080TIs until 3080TI comes out as well but who knows when Nvidia will release that. I don't plan to have SLI with my next GPU (not worth the headache and there is no gain at my resolution 3440x1440). I've also never done a custom loop before. I feel pretty confident I could do it but I want to avoid the maintenance of it. How often do you guys swap fluids or drain/clean the blocks? Any input is appreciated.
  5. I originally had this thread in General but it got moved to Software section, I just hope this gets enough attention to save people time and money. They offered a refund, I have to follow-up on that still. The money involved isn't the real issue for me, it's more so that they are pushing this as an upgrade when clearly it isn't. As a software developer myself, I can see what the long-term goal is. They are converting a local app to be cloud driven so that they can run it more like a SaaS application, which basically means they can charge you for "features" or "upgrades" over time. The problem is that this changes the communication layer. Before, you would have two or more networked applications communicating with each other directly on the same network. The new version sends input from your system to one of their cloud servers and then back down to the other clients. This means that if there is ever a connection failure between you and the internet or you and their servers, the application becomes useless. The other problem is that there is no way to configure anything or even start/stop the service within the UI. This is just sloppy and rushed so they could promote it throughout CES knowing they'll make a ton of money. I just cringe now when I see it promoted on LMG content because they are better than that. For anyone thinking I'm just one angry customer ranting, please feel free to sign up for an account on their forums at https://symless.com/forums/ and see for yourself. Notice how the "off-topic" section requires membership to view and is filled with customer complaints regarding 2.0. The owner moves the threads here so they are no longer public...
  6. This is exactly what I'm talking about. The auto-config service goes down randomly and just leaves the program completely useless... There are no configuration options. I don't know why LMG continues to push this... @nicklmg
  7. Are you guys serious with the Synergy ad spot in the Wan Show? Kind of disappointed.
  8. I'm just more shocked by how unprofessional the owner has been.
  9. Wow, I didn't realize the off-topic section was for members only... That makes it even more shady. The entire section is filled with people complaining about the 2.0 release. This release seems like it's just a big money grab. They hide any thread exposing the 2.0 version for what it is. Really hope LMG can look into this. Get an account and read the threads for yourself. @nicklmg
  10. Just a quick follow-up, the owner of the site moved my thread where I asked for help to off topic for "ranting". Even the mod on the forums knew I was looking for help... Link to thread: https://symless.com/forums/topic/5043-please-tell-me-im-missing-something/ Extremely rude! @nicklmg @LinusTech
  11. Thanks for the suggestion @GoodBytes! As you guessed though, I am using Synergy for the cross-platform functionality. Synergy 1.8 is still great but after being spammed with "Upgrade to Synergy 2.0 today!" nearly every day in my inbox I discovered the hard way that it is a mess. Even today I tried using 2.0 and the auto-config service was down again. To make it worse, their support is away until January 8th! I guess they like to take long vacations now that they charged all those upgrade fees... Really hope LMG does a PSA on it if they are going to continue to support and advertise them.
  12. Can't wait for the Dbrand rock pets to come out!
  13. I discovered Synergy, a program by Symless, through one of the ad spots on the LTT videos. It worked great, exactly as advertised and well worth the purchase. However, they've recently released a 2.0 version which removes a lot of functionality and even becomes completely unusable when their "auto-config" service is down - which happens very often. I have reached out to their support forums and found many other users complaining about this newer version as well. To make it worse, there is a $49 upgrade fee to go from 1.0 Pro to 2.0 Pro. The 1.0 version allowed you to configure hotkeys, remap keybinds, setup dead zones, start and stop the service and so much more while the new 2.0 version has literally zero options. The only way to stop the 2.0 program is to go into Window services and stop it. On a Mac, you need to run a shell command as root. I wouldn't have a problem if this was labeled as beta or if the upgrade was free but that isn't the case. To make it worse, there are many times when the new version cannot connect to their "auto-config" service which makes the program completely useless. I know LMG takes its advertisers serious and I hope this will draw a little attention and save people money/hassle involved with the newer version. Stay away from the 2.0 and stick with 1.8.
  14. I mean, the added cores will be nice for some development stuff I plan to do but most of it will be gaming. I'll likely be going with Intel for the virtualization stuff.
  15. So I will be building a new system later this year once the new X299 platform is released. I wanted to get some thoughts on the system I'm looking to build. Would anyone be interested in I put a build guide together going over the process? Intel i9 7900X 64GB Corsair Dominator DDR4 Asus ROG Rampage VI Extreme X299 2x Asus Strix GTX 1080Ti (already owned) 1TB Samsung 960 Pro CoolerMaster Cosmos C700P Custom ekwb dual radiator loop Corsair AX1200i PSU Let me know what you guys think. I'll likely start it once all the parts are available.
