  1. I don't think RGB should be a limiting factor, you can always just turn it off. Otherwise it sounds like PCIe lanes may be a limiting factor for you. This is the only board that I can find that comes close is the MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE
  2. Wait for reviews Purchase the best option you can afford Profit
  3. Contact Corsair or the retailer, if the glass shattered while peeling the glass likely already had a problem. Also I doubt listing just the glass is a priority for anyone so your best odds are just to reach out.
  4. I have a 3700x which comes with the same stock cooler (Wraith Prism). It's fine until you overclock and to my understanding the same is true for the 3900x. It is fairly noisy though, changes in fan speed were very noticeable. I personally upgraded the cooler to a Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B which has been much cooler and quieter.
  5. If its a new install have you installed Nvidia drivers? You may have to enable proprietary software to be installed: https://itsfoss.com/install-additional-drivers-ubuntu/
  6. I don't think they've done it DIY before but they've covered iBUYPOWER's cases with it a few times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxqw2ShsQoY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qobsfVJmoHI
  7. Considering the 1660 Super and Ti both use the TU116 GPU I assume they would produce very similar experiences with Reflex. Their drastic-ness of improvement is likely based on hardware capabilities of the GPUs plus a boost from speed. These card have the same GPUs and very similar performance.
  8. You are likely fine then. Like Moonzy said furmark is a very extreme case. Cards have thermal protections, it won't kill itself with heat plus 87 degrees still has some room. I'd let Furmark run for a good hour or so, if it hits ~100 your card may have a mediocre cooling mount, but if this rig isn't for gaming I would worry about it ever getting near that point.
  9. It's not perfect but it's also far from bad. I can't tell from your picture but a intake fan in the front at the height of your GPU would likely ensure there is enough airflow.
  10. Also I would strongly consider spending the extra $5-10 for a 3000, 3200, or 3600 mhz kit of ram. Ryzen processors are relatively memory speed dependent. And if you're willing to take a slight risk you could buy Windows keys for pretty cheap on some resale site, alternatively you could steal a key off an old system. Window 7 and 8 keys generally work too.
  11. 2 things: first you can probably save about $50 on a PSU by going with a 80+ Gold rated model. Second, you are really going to want an SSD. Windows 10 in my experience runs very poorly on spinning rust and only gets worse over time. Consider getting a smaller SSD and HDD to pair together. If you are playing Physics based games I'm guessing they're not too graphically demanding. An AMD APU (CPU + iGPU) may be enough to get you by for a bit while you save up money. Also consider buying used components, outside of storage you don't particularly have to worry about parts degrading over
  12. Well we don't have 3080 benchmarks so we can't say for sure. But the 8700k is still a very good gaming CPU and you should be fine.
  13. Not at all. Edit: (to do you need to upgrade)
  14. We haven't had any benchmarking so nothing can be said for sure. However, I wouldn't expect most applications - particularly games - to require the PCIe bandwidth of gen 4.
