  1. are you familiar with solutions from Cognex ? They seem to have what you're looking for and we use them pretty often at work - seems like a reliable choice https://www.cognex.com/products/barcode-readers/mobile-solutions
  2. What I meant was to double check if the exact RAM is compatible with this Motherboard, the speeds alone listed on amazon/newegg or other site might be sometimes misleading. here's the link : https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z370-GAMING-M5.html#support-mem-5 and on the first glance I didn't see any 4000Mhz RAM from G.Skill on the list... Actually only 4000Mhz RAM they have there is from Team or Corsair. This list contains the RAM modules that are tested by MSI with this Motherboard and CoffeLake CPU, others might work too, but don't have to - or you will
  3. Hi there, most of your build looks fine to my on the first glance but as you stated in questions there are few things worth double-checking before you order it. 1. You asked about RAM speeds and overclocking, but the first thing you should do is to check your motherboard manufacturers QVL (Qualified Vendor's List) available on the website probably, so that you don't have any unexpected surprises later. When it comes to speeds and latency it does make a difference but it's so small you shouldn't be worried about it with your first build - just look for the highest clocke
  4. I have the K95 Platinum for a few months now and I love it, the build quality is really premium and you can really feel it. Previously I had Roccat keyboards which were all plastic and I wouldn't go back to a plastic keyboard now. For the switches I chose the MX speed , was kinda funny feeling at the beginning but after I got used to it (2-3 days time) I knew it was the right choice for me -not too clicky like i.e. MX Blue -low distance makes it comfortable if you use your keyboard not only to play but also to work and type a lot (my hands were often tired after few hours

    So some new stuff arrived and I will be spending the weekend playing with it a little bit but I guess it might be worth a little update Even tho there's still a lot to do the rig is performing flawlessly and I enjoy every step of this ride to tweak it even more ^^ New stuff : second 1080Ti FE cablemod black/green cable set I know it's still a cable mess but some cable combs should arrive soon and then it will be nice I promise also the only thing I'm missing are some RGB fans right now (still can't decide which one to choose that are av
  6. but he's right that the Motherboard does not fit the CPU - so that's the most important point to fix first, then we might discuss futher compatibility

    So finally one new part arrived and I must say I'm pretty amazed by it's quality.... Corsair K95 Platinum - that aluminium base is really solid and the cherry MX speed are pretty damn nice for someone who like a little of tactile feedback with low force and short strokes. From a few different switches that I've tested at friends these particular ones I'm very happy with and even though it's my first own mechanical keyboard after just 2 hours with it I feel like I'm already used to it and it's great! Some comparison photos and the whole setup view ( there are still some RG

    Haha I wish it was LTT it's just personal use but for the sake of not being hated over the forums I will avoid saying the exact purpose of my workload I can just say that CPU power is going to be fairly enough but I might wanna get a second GPU for that, because the workload is heavy on both DRAM and GPU RAM - crazy eh? oh and btw some more benchmark scores:

    Well there are SOME reasons behind that but I could propably easily go with 64GB aswell, but for the sake of having the most I could get I went for it It's not like I'm ever gotta have to throw it out to replace it or something, right ?

    and the initial build is now complete ! I managed to get the CPU to 4.6Ghz which I think is pretty nice for a 6850K - so far no stability issues, but I will need some more testing to that. Some quick overall benchmarks for some that might be interested : http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/3889763 If some of you are interested in any specific benchmarks let me know, I will try to cover them, althou it's not anything "new" so you've probably seen it all already I didn't OC the GPU yet though, mostly because it's just stock FE and I will play arou

    So, while waiting for few minor things to arrive (still missing the keyboard tho :F) I figured that the new build needs a suitable surrounding and my fixed-on-the-fly desk I made right after moving in was looking kinda... "meh" like that : even though I was thigh on budget after purchasing all the core components I managed to pull off something slightly better I hope... + another "semi-scrap" piece of wood for the desk + 4 cheap aluminium legs + borred wood cutter maschine from a friend (the poles make it hard to go wall to wall but with a little

    Hi guys, so, I've been planning on this for quite a long time now and it's finally here (sort of...) The planning is complete, the parts arrived and I'm about to get building it anytime now It's not the END yet but a START, since I'm planning on getting some more stuff into it, but for now, it's this. I know some people might question the choice of components that I got but it's fine, we have such a great variety of hardware right now that everyone can choose something that suits his/hers needs perfectly (at a pricepoint) and t
  13. I'm going with the 27" but the OP also has some 24 some 27 inches so dunno what he preffers. Matter of price too I guess.
  14. Do you consider ONLY the monitor you've linked up above ? I had a smillar dilemma but I found somewhat of a sweetspot for me by Dell: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-27-gaming-monitor-s2716dg/apd/210-agjr/monitors-monitor-accessories the price's a little bit higher but reasonably and it has all 144hz 1440p and G-sync
