  1. Heyo there. I am planning on buying a new CPU to go along with my RIG. I have an i7 9700F and I hate it, it doesn't perform to the standard I need. To the point now.


    I stream on a single PC while also gaming. I have heard good things about both the 3900x and 9900K sku's. For sheer performance, delivering great quality without diminishing in-game quality or performance, what is the better option for me here? Also something to note is that, I am planning on using my current CPU and mobo in a separate PC that will be dedicated to streaming. Anyway, I have done a ton of research and cannot seem to make-up my mind. So I came here. Thoughts? Input? I'm running an EVGA RTX 2080 Super XC Ultra atm.


    AMD Ryzen 9 3900x paired with a B450 or X570 motherboard

    Intel i9 9900k paired with ASUS Prime Z390-A LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z390 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

  2. Hello there! I have come for some insight and I need assistance. I am very indecisive and for the life of me cannot make up my mind or find answers on what to get. So I have come here again in hopes of finding just that.


    My current rig in an NZXT H510 case:

    CPU: 9th gen i7 9700F

    GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super XC Ultra

    RAM: PNY 16GB 3200mhz

    MOBO: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus

    PSU: Corsair 750w Modular (I forgot the model number)

    Cooler: AIO Corsair H115i Platinum


    So basically, I am a streamer and currently using a single PC setup but will soon have a Dual PC setup, one dedicated to games, one to streaming. I am at a cross roads of what to get. I am looking at the 9th Gen i9 9900K and the AMD Ryzen 9 3900x. If I went with Intel, I would be getting an ASUS Prime Z390-A Mobo, if AMD, I have yet to figure that out yet. I am getting a board that has at least 12 power phases for the CPU.


    To put into context what I do with my single PC setup (specs as listed above), I stream using Streamlabs/OBS.Live with stream elements. I do use static overlays with the exception of a live rotating event list and the browser extension for my alerts. For games, I play Modern Warfare and Apex Legends mainly, both known to have high CPU usage. I also plan on playing things like Paladins, The Cycle, eventually Valorant when it releases or I get a beta key. I play Minecraft pretty heavily as well.


    My indecision comes in at which CPU I should get. I have seen that AMD has it perks over Intel but the i9 9900k has it's own perks over the 3900x as well. I was told too by close friends that I should just get an i7 9700k and OC it but that lacks more than 8 threads and has not hyperthreading. Also told by someone else that I might as well just go AMD if I spend that much on an i7 9700F since the 9th i7 isn't the best. I have been told to just get AMD because of the core count and thread count but I have seen reviews from many people such as Linus, Bitwit, JayzTwoCents etc saying that it lacks the higher quality. Since I am going to have a dual PC setup once I get another GPU, PSU, storage and better RAM, I have been leaning towards the i9 9900k. I am super new to the world of PC's and am learning everyday. I have done a fair amount of research on the topic but am still overly undecided. Please help!

    🤔 Do you know what the I.P address of those servers are? If you do, you can use the pathping command in the command prompt. It tells you if packets are being received and how fast it gets there from hop to hop, or router to router towards that particular server. It will also tell you if there is any packet loss and tells you exactly when it was lost on the entire route. If there is any loss, you can go into your routing table and replace that router with another one. I've never done it myself, so just make sure you know exactly what you are going before you do it, I only know it can be done. I'm not sure what your internet service provider can do for you in this instance either. From my understanding, sites like 'Speedtest.net' won't really do much for you, because its not actually testing the connection speed to the specific servers in question that you are actually having trouble with. All that site tells you is if you are getting the service quality you paid for, but your problem might not be on your end. 


    Apex doesn't release the IP addresses of their servers. I dont even know what servers I'm connected to on Modern Warfare. All I can do is test the ping and traceroute to battle.net and easo.ea.com or whatever they are to see. Attache are to PingPlotter tests to EA servers. Image 65252 is without Apex running and image 660050 is with Apex running.



  4. Hello there!


    I have come here becuase I am honestly lost for what to do. I cannot think of what else there is to do to fix these issues.


    So basically, I am a streamer and I play games such as Modern Warfare and Apex Legends. I am having a TON of connection issues to the servers. I have gone in to my physical router settings and enabled QoS and set specific rules for the ports the games and streaming software use as well as forwarded those ports. I have also set up a static IP address for my computer as well as using Cloudflare DNS servers (not sure if this even affects gaming). I have done hours and hours of research and watching videos on it. I have gone into the actual port connection on my mobo and adjusted those settings appropriately based on countless videos and forums I have watched and looked through. I am so honeslty confused at what I should do here. 


    My connection to Apex Legends servers is to the SLC data center

    My connection to Modern Warfare servers I am assuming is to the LA servers but I don't think there is a way to really know what I connect to. 


    My internet speeds based on numerous Speedtest.net tests to multiple servers near me: 310mbps download, 28-33mbps upload. I am running a Cat6 Ethernet cable.


    My PC Hardware:

    9th gen i7 9700F

    EVGA Nvidia GeFroce 2080 Super XC Ultra

    MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus mobo

    Corsair H115i CPU AIO

    750 Corsair modular PSU


    Does anyone have any advice?
