  1. I am not looking to change my build unless there are any particular bottleneck issues you could see happening with what I already have chosen. Is m current build going to have bottleneck issues, or is it good as is. I don't really want suggestions for other builds unless there's an obvious bottleneck that could occur with my current setup.
  2. Hello everyone, in the process of building a PC but haven't bought the parts yet. The only game I plan to play so far is Escape From Tarkov. I really just need someone to scan through all my parts and see where a possible bottleneck might come from. I'm also clueless as to bios compatibility with any part go the computer (i'm a first time builder). I'm unsure if a graphics card specifies GDDR6 compatibility if that means I need GDDR6 memory or not. I don't care about the availability or not of a particular part. I will post my parts list here: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $504.99 @ Best Buy CPU Cooler Noctua NH-U12A 60.09 CFM CPU Cooler $99.90 @ Amazon Thermal Compound Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut 1g 1 g Thermal Paste $9.49 @ Amazon Thermal Compound Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut 1g 1 g Thermal Paste $9.49 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $214.98 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $94.99 @ Amazon Storage Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $169.99 @ B&H Video Card MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card $803.99 @ Amazon Case Fractal Design Meshify S2 ATX Mid Tower Case $149.99 @ Walmart Power Supply Asus 850 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $219.99 @ B&H Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit $172.82 @ Amazon Software Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3.0 Premium (1 Year Subscription) - 3 PCs Software $34.99 @ Newegg Case Fan Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans $34.99 @ Amazon Case Fan Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans $34.99 @ Amazon Case Fan Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans $34.99 @ Amazon Case Fan Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans $34.99 @ Amazon Monitor Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ 27.0" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor $429.00 @ B&H Custom Noctua NA-SYC1 Accessory 4-pin Y-Cables for PWM Fans $7.95 @ Amazon Custom Noctua NA-SYC1 Accessory 4-pin Y-Cables for PWM Fans $7.95 @ Amazon Custom Pro Tech Toolkit $69.99 Custom ESCAPE FROM TARKOV Edge Of Darkness LIMITED EDITION $139.99 Custom IFIXIT Portable Anti-Static Mat $29.99 Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $3310.44 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-03-19 19:02 EDT-0400
  3. thx, you have been much more helpful then the feedback on other threads lmao. Hopefully others find this post useful.
  4. Either way, assuming the 1 fan is the same as the other, if the motherboard controls the speed of the 1 fan (only one it can read) won't it auto adjust the other fan to the same speed?
  5. is there a PWM fan Cable for 2 fans that support the fans I'm using specifically?
  6. is there a PWM fan Cable for 2 fans that support the fans I'm using specifically?
  7. So I have some Motherboard mainboard 4 pin Fan Header questions. The motherboard I'm using is the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard and the fans I'll be suing are the Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans which I'll be connecting 2 of to 1 mainboard 4-pin fan header via the https://noctua.at/en/na-syc1 NA-SYC1 Y-Cable. The fans are between 10.8V - 13.2V. I know I should not overload the main board, which I checked the manual and says that for PWM mode (I'll be using) for the mainboard at being a constant +12V.... so I'm wondering, do the mainboard fan headers support more then 1 fan? If they do, because the fans are capable of running above the +12V (I'm assuming) limit, does that mean it'll fry my mainboard fan header or does it simply mean the fans will be stopped at 12V power consumption, like they can't consume more then? OR, might that not even be a concern as I might be able to limit the max volts the fans can run to in the bios on the motherboard for PWM?
  8. well I'm a first time PC builder and I get the 4+4 but when they start throwing the "/" in there it confuses me
  9. So I have these three things: PSU: ROG THOR 850P https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards-Accessories/ROG-THOR-850P/overview/ CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/core/i9-processors/i9-9900k.html MOTHERBOARD: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-Z390-GAMING-EDGE-AC/Specification My Question is are they compatible in terms of their ports for power? Like, the PCIE slots are really confusing me. And what concerns me is that when you scroll all the way down to the “Power Supply Calculator” https://www.asus.com/microsite/power_supply_calculator/ it doesn’t list the i9-9900k 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor series at all. Does that it’s self mean it’s not compatible? Additionally, the PCIE ports are all odd. For the Motherboard, it has 3 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (support x16/x0/x4, x8/x8/x4 modes)… 3 x PCIe 3.0 x1 slots… 2 x M.2 slot (Key M) with Support up to PCIe 3.0 x4… 1 x 24-pin ATX main power connector 1 x 8-pin ATX 12V power connector 1 x 4-pin ATX 12V power connector 6 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors 1 x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port 2 x USB 3.1 Gen1 connectors (supports additional 4 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports) 2 x USB 2.0 connectors (supports additional 4 USB 2.0 ports) 1 x 4-pin CPU fan connector 1 x 4-pin Water Pump connector 5 x 4-pin system fan connectors 1 x Serial port connector 1 x Front panel audio connector 2 x System panel connectors 1 x Thunderbolt Add-on Card Connector 1 x Chassis Intrusion connector 1 x TPM module connector 2 x 4-pin RGB LED connectors 1 x 3-pin RAINBOW LED connector 1 x 3-pin CORSAIR LED connector For the PSU, it has ATX12V… MB 24/20-pin x 1 CPU 8/4-pin x 2 PCI-E 8/6-pin x 4 SATA x 12 Peripheral 4-pin x 5 Floppy x 1 and comes with … Power Cord x 1 Motherboard Power Cable (24-pin) x 1 (610mm) CPU Cable (4+4-pin) x 2 (650mm) PCI-E Cable (6+2-pin) x 3 (675mm) SATA Cable x 3 (760mm/570mm) Peripheral x 2 (690mm/470mm) SATA to Peripheral Cable x 1 (300mm) Floppy Cable x 1 (101mm) Addressable RGB Cables x 2 (950mm) Sleeved Cable Combs (6-pin) x 2 Sleeved Cable Combs (8-pin) x 6 Sleeved Cable Combs (24-pin) x 2 ARE THESE COMPATIBLE?
  10. I actually did consider the posts where it wouldn't be relevant and thusly didn't post it there lol
  11. didn't know where Wifi fell under so I posted it to where I thought it was relevant.
  12. I need to know how many case fans (or fans total) can be supported by the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard, and if the total fan headers include the CPU Noctua NH-U12A 60.09 CFM CPU Cooler fans. I plan to use the Corsair ML140 97 CFM 140 mm Fans which come in pairs per order/purchase. I am not water-cooling the build it'll be used with. The case I'm using is the Fractal Design Meshify S2 ATX Mid Tower Case which claims to support 9 fans. Ideally, I'd like to support 1 back case fan, 3 top case fans and 3 front case fans, less ideally perhaps 1 back case fan, 2/3 top case fans, and 2/3 front case fans. Just a bit of overview, I have no ethernet wall plug in my room thus must use an AC wifi motherboard, hence the MSI above. I plan not to have to upgrade for a few years, hence I want the cooling to be as many fans as possible for hopefully longevity sake. Not to mention dust is a concern in my room so I figure more fans will help.
  13. So I have the Xfinity XB3 router, it’s specified as dual-band 802.11ac. I believe this to be a WiFi Wave1 device (also called a 1x1). It’s offering speeds over 700 Mbps. I’m looking at a 802.11AC wave 2 compatible motherboard (Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard) for a build. It claims to have 802.11AC 1x1 of 433Mbps, or 802.11AC 2x2 of 867Mbps. I know the 2x2 (also known as wave 2) wifi to be backwards compatible with my router’s 1x1 (wave 1) wifi; however, what I can’t seem to find anywhere I look is wether I will get the full 867Mbs using my router’s 1x1 wifi capability or if I’m only going to be getting the 433Mbps as a cap. So if I use 802.11AC 2x2 (Wave2) WiFi connection via my Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard, will I get 867 or 433Mbps? If I am capped at 433Mbps, I might as well use the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC motherboard, which has better features and is specified for Dual-band 802.11 AC 1x1 WiFi. Please just answer my question, don't sell me on getting one or the other or a different motherboard.
  14. SO I have a Dual-Band Xfinity standard router (XB3), it runs 3.5 and 5 channels and specifies "Dual-Band 802.11AC" and I'm stuck between 2 particular mother boards based on wether they are compatible with that wifi and wether they truly run at their specified avg connection rates. (haven't bought them yet)... I'm looking at the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard which I know to be 802.11AC compatible as it is specified as having MU-MIMO technology delivering AC speeds up to 433Mbps without any cable limitation. However, I'm also looking at the Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard which CLAIMS that with it's Intel® 802.11ac Wave2 CNVi WIFI + Bluetooth 5 it delivers "speeds up to 1.73Gbps and that it's avg rates for 2x2 802.11 AC are 867Mbps." So I'm left wondering, does the Aurous actually run at 867Mbps assuming I can only run it at wave 1 wifi, as in, not 2x2...? Or do I essentially divide the 867 by 2 as I'm only using 1 wave of wifi from my router? Depending what the case is, I may or may not get the AUROS based ONLY on the wifi speed, pls do not sell me on which has better "features".... if they both run at the same avg wifi speed for 802.11AC then I will get the MSI motherboard. AND NO, I cannot get an ethernet or lan connection in my room. I ASSUME MY STANDARD XFINITYXB3 ROUTER TO BE WAVE 1 only... So, if I run my WAVE 1 Dual-band 802.11ac wifi through the Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard, do I get the full 867Mbps? Or am I only getting 433Mbps? Or am I getting more then 867Mbps? Anyone know?
  15. Note that the router wifi is WAVE 1 only.
