  1. Okay, do you think I need anything faster than a NVME (3.0) drive for a projects and games?
  2. Budget (including currency): CAD ($3000ish) Country: Canada Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I'm going to college for my Commercial Pilot License and Building System Engineering, so like Flight Sim 2020 and Solidworks etc. Also other games in my down time. Other details: I already have one 1080P 25" monitor that I want to use as a secondary (want to upgrade to a 4K 27" and something able to drive it), as well as I have a decent keyboard and mouse. Also I am keeping my storage from my old build (3TB hdd, 1TB Samsung 860 Evo). Other than that I have nothing else I am carrying over from my previous build. I really don't care for looks, expect if the case has a TG side panel then I do. Also noise is my #1 factor (silence, current build under load is loud). Questions: 1900X or 3700X? Should I invest in a raid (5 or 10 or another config) nvme storage array for quick loading of projects and flight sim? (like a hyper x16 card from ASUS with 4x 512gb NVME drives. 1900X only I believe??) Any other ideas?

  3. It used to occur when I was playing certain games, but recently it start happening even when I was just watching YouTube (fun fact, it resets only the video quality when this happens, not where in the video). I have not monitored the CPU or GPU temps due to the randomness of the issues happening
  4. Hello, I'm having an issue with my display losing signal for 10 - 50 seconds and then regaining signal again. When this happens the lights within my case turn off and the fans slow down to idle. I have no clue whats happening, I have updated all my drivers. The only thing I think it could be is having my power cable (AC) run beside my display cable. Thank you.
