  1. Thanks! It looks like I was wrong and it was actually the intel Lan that had issues.
  2. So I've been looking for a mobo for a 10th gen intel cpu and I've been a bit hesitant in my choice of mobos, recently I've been looking at the msi mpg z490 gaming edge, however I've heard issues with the Realtek® RTL8125B-CG 2.5G LAN Controller and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201. I heard that the wifi drops out when used with Bluetooth source: I've also heard issues with the lan dropping out Source: https://amp.reddit.com/r/MSI_Gaming/comments/h0lo6n/msi_mpg_z490_gaming_edge_wifi_issues/ If anyone knows any good z490 mobos for $300 USD, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  3. The price difference for me is not that much between the 750w and 850w (corsair), I plan to have a good and reliable PSU as I've had PC's short out with a bad cheap PSU before (some no name Alibaba PSU. Ya, I'm definitely just going with a higher watt PSU for the peace of mind then anything else. That's pretty interesting! Unfortunately right now because of the scarcity of 10 Gen Intel right now, there's not much in the way of information in regards to watt draw (hopefully I win the silicon lottery and only need 1.3v - 1.36v to achieve 5ghz oc). Thanks again
  4. That makes a lot of sense. I think I'll reconsider my PSU choice (maybe a 850watt PSU just to be safe)(I'm looking into corsair gold/platinum/titanium offerings) . Yes I was referring to the "350W TDP rumour", I'm hoping Nvidia doesn't pull that again, but at the same time, my trust in pc parts manufacturers is quite low. I've no desire to be in the top 1000 PC's on benchmarking tests, I simply want 5ghz cpu oc for things like rpcs3, where even a 5ghz i9 9900k struggles to push good fps in games like mgs4, and be able to run multiple vms with ease (and some video editing on the side).
  5. Thank you! The only reason I thinking about 1000w PSU is because I've calculated my watt use for cpu/gpu/mobo/ram/fans/pump and it's in the range of Obo 650-750w, I'm looking to maybe get a 3070 once that's out which seems like it'll require more juice, honestly I doubt I'll ever actually need that much oomph from the PSU, but it's more a peace of mind. (I plan to oc cpu to 5ghz, oc gpu, and oc ram)
  6. Thanks! I was looking at a 1000w PSU with 2x ATX 12Vdc (4 + 4 Pin) Connectors. I'm not sure if that means it only has 8 pins or if that means it has a 4+4 and another 4+4
  7. Hi, I'm having a few issues. The msi z490 supports 8+4pin for the cpu, however most psus I can find only support 4+4 pins, is that an issue for overclocking to 5ghz? How does 8 pin (4+4) differ from 8+4 pins? Is it completely necessary to have 8+4 pins for stability for ocing all cores to 5ghz?
  8. I believe my previous system uses a z390 Asus motherboard (not sure as to the exact one). I borrowed parts from friends and swapped out the HDDs, added a sound card, tried a different mobo, tried a different PSU, tried different ram, did a bios reset, tried updating the bios, tried different OSes, all of which didn't seem to fix my weird stutter problem (audio would stutter, video would have weird stutters, the mouse would sometimes skip). I suspected it was the cpu as that was the only part I didn't touch
  9. I think Ill go with the kraken X73, that barely clears my budget. I greatly appreciate your offer, but a custom look doesn't fit my budget and I don't think I can upkeep a custom loop XD (knowing my luck, something may spill and cause me endless amounts of pain, or I'll constantly put off maintenance and as a result something will start growing and corroding the metal in my loop).
  10. The last pc I built for myself had a 4th Gen intel cpu (though I've been recently building PC's for people because of the covid 19 crisis). It had lots of dpc latency issues that I could never quite figure out and ended up selling the thing. I'm hoping this go around, with my increased experience I'll be able to make a good system with none of my previous issues.
  11. I'm currently looking at the fractal 7 atx case
  12. Ah, ya the kraken X73 is indeed sold out. I'll definitely keep my eye on that though. I just hope I win the silicon lottery (I really hate that prebinned cpu costs so damn much more n my only real option is to put in money into a slot machine and yank the lever hoping for something good).
