  1. Already ordered Xiaomi 34 Curved. Seemed like a no brainer for the price and it was available for instant shipping. Also, in the build I decided to swap the CPU cooling for Arctic Freezer 34 eSports + added be quiet! Silent Wings 3 as exhaust fan. Depending on availability I might also go from rtx 3060 to 3070. No more ideas for changes so far.
  2. Hello. I'm currently in a process of picking parts for a completely new rig that will be used for 1440p Ultra Wide gaming and occasional video editing. I'm pretty much set on the CPU/GPU/Case/SSD, so the question is whether this build could be improved on any further or if there are any compatibility issues present. This is what I got so far: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x CPU cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock 2 120mm GPU: MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIO 8GB GDDR6 MB: Gigabyte B550 AORUS PRO AC (I need both WiFi and Bluetooth + something that I coul
  3. Alright, I ordered the laptop. The samsung 961 SSD was unavailable, so I asked them to get a m.2 850 Evo for me since it's easily available. I still have 1 SSD slot free if I ever want to upgrade to a faster one. I really appreciate you guys helping me out. I'm quite confident that the laptop will do great. Thank you.
  4. If I went with the cheapest RAM available, then on all 4 sticks I would save like $35 bucks. Tbh, I'm not sure what is exactly the benefit of Hyper X over the cheaper sticks, but it seems to be generally popular. As far as the SSD goes - that's the only samsung they have right now. I'd have to order one myself from somewhere else, open up the laptop and put it in and the warranty would be in a different store. That would save me another $80 but I think it's not worth the effort. If I go with this one I wouldn't even have to open the laptop up until I wanted to add a sec
  5. Good tips. I actually forgot that Win Pro had that option, so thanks for a reminder. So, I guess this would be the final config: Monitor: 15.6”, FHD (1920x1080) 16:9 panel GPU: GeForce® GTX 1060 CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Overclocking RAM: Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 HDD: Hitachi Travelstar 7K1000 1 TB 7200rpm Hitachi Travelstar 7K1000 1 TB 7200rpm SSD: Samsung SM961 (PCIe/NVMe) 512GB
  6. I think I'm gonna try to save some money and get a different drive config + gtx 1060 instead of 1070. Display: 15.6”, FHD (1920x1080) 16:9 panel GPU: GeForce® GTX 1060 CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Overclocking RAM Memory: Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 8GB, 2400MHz, CL14 HDD: 1 TB SATA Hitachi Travelstar 7K1000 1 TB 7200rpm SSD: Plextor M8Pe SSD 256GB PCIe Gen 3x4 NVMe OS: Windows 10 Home + Installation WLAN: Killer
  7. Thanks. I guess the only additional thing I can do is to choose a backpack with good laptop compartment protection. Aye, captain.
  8. Since I can choose between Prema and VPrema, what are the differences? By the way, I see that you also have a Clevo laptop. Are you generally happy with the built quality? Since it's pretty much all plastic, I am wondering if it can actually survive long-term trips in a backpack. Especially one that will be full pretty much all the time. As far as the backpack goes. I'd still go with a dedicated photography one, so I can have easy access to all the equipment (dedicated space for lenses, cameras, mic's etc). I'm just still trying to find one that will hold this fat, fast
  9. So I guess the fat one is the only one I should be considering. I just sort of clicked on the first 16GB stick I saw there. I will probably go with Kingston HyperX 2400MHz. I can order the laptop with VPREMA/PREMA BIOS for a small price bump. So 16GB sticks should work fine with that? I'd rather get 2x16GB in case I want to put in more later on. I will look into those backpacks. I need something big enough to hold this monster of a laptop +my equipment and, at the same time, something that I can actually bring on a plane. I can't rea
  10. I got pretty lucky with that. I just stumbled on somebody saying that clevo laptops are pretty great. Then I got lucky again since apparently they are easily available here in Poland. Battery life is not really an issue. I will use it pretty much only when I can get hooked up to power and do some proper video editing. It's extremely beefy though. I'm not sure if I can even find the right backpack for it. Given that I need a photography backpack to secure all my other equipment. There is also a second model available with 1070 pascal.

  11. By the way, do I understand the AW 15's processor specs correctly? Is the i7 6820HK pre-overclocked to 4.1 GHz? I am still unsure whether it's worth upgrading from the 6700HQ. Plus, am I correct to assume that the GTX 1070 might be overheating even more than the 1060 version? edit: I initially ignored this since this was the first time I heard the company name, but maybe it would not be such a bad move. I could get a i7 6700k https://www.dreammachines.pl/laptop/config/X1070-15PL11.pl
  12. These were actually the things I was thinking about : 1. 4k will be much better for editing 2. I don't think battery really matters that much since for video editing I will be hooked up to power all the time anyway So the only question would be about the quality of that 4k screen.
  13. It looks like getting the 13" version might be more of a problem than I initially thought. I will still be talking to Dell but just in case I want to review other options. Given that I need something very durable I think I'd rather skip MSI, get a bigger backpack and buy Alienware 15". If I were to buy it I would probably go for a maxed out version - GTX 1070, i7 6820HK, 32GB RAM. The only thing I can't decide on is the display. Should I go for FHD or UHD? edit: After doing some reading I might actually go for 6700HQ CPU...
  14. I spoke to Dell and they said that they can get one for me, so - success! I will definitely test it for any kind of issues once I get it. I'm gonna be traveling for at least a few months without coming back home, so I need to make sure that I have a flawlessly running workstation. Thanks for the help!
  15. That's right. I run a 1-man video production company. Recently I decided to go fully mobile - shoot and edit videos on the go while traveling full time. In January I'm going to Sri Lanka with a one way ticket and then I'll probably head to Thailand - I will porbably be on the move for 3-4 months at least. If money wasn't an issue I would probably just go for 1TB+1TB straight away. However, the notebook alone is gonna set me back $2600. Additionally I'm getting a new $1000 lens + around $500 worth of other, smaller equipment pieces. That's why I feel that getting 512+256
