  1. Budget (including currency): 1500 USD or less Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Web development, cloud administration, Excel, gaming (Assassin's Creed, Apex Legends, NBA 2K, FIFA, and RTS games), light video editing with Premiere and light 3D work with After Effects and Cinema4D/Blender Here's the dilemma: I have a decent desktop with a Ryzen 5 2600X and a Vega 56 (full specs on my profile). The GPU has always been loud and after the years of use it's showing signs of weakness. Basically it's crashing quite often probably due to overheatin
  2. I'm not sure what to think because Facebook (and Google as well) does allow users to see their advertising data. Actually Lon Seidman made a video about this: Maybe it's not the same kind of data? I have no idea but it's quite detailed, so it's not as bad as some people might think.
  3. Assassin's Creed Rebellion for me. It's quite addictive and I don't think I've ever spent that much time playing on mobile.
  4. No it's not since Vsync caps the framerate at 30 even when the game allows to set it to 60.
  5. I could try that but I'm looking for a long-term solution as to why Vsync/Freesync aren't working.
  6. Hi, I'm using an MSI Vega 56 Air Boost and an Acer ET322QK monitor that supports 4K and Freesync. Both are connected using a DP cable and the Radeon software and drivers are up to date. Now my problem is regardless of the game I play, Vsync and Freesync don't work: enabling Vsync will lock the framerate at 30 instead of 60, and disabling it will make the GPU run at full speed and screen tearing gets very noticeable. I checked on both the Radeon software and the monitor's OSD that Freesync is enabled so I'm not sure what to do. As of now my only option was to
  7. I almost never play with a mouse and keyboard, but when I do, rumbling is something I miss a lot. This guy found the solution: https://www.facebook.com/LADbible/videos/474572477218830/

      @miniboisthat's why you should keep the pc on the floor.

  8. It's hard to give an answer without knowing your components, your case, and your current temps. However more case fans won't necessarily make your system run cooler. For instance a better CPU cooler would have a better impact than an insane amount of case fans. You might want to check this video:
  9. Could be that Sony isn't trying to make money out of their smartphone division. They know they are very niche category so they see their phones more as "proof of concepts."
  10. Then does the drive itself appear in the BIOS or just the adapter?
  11. Does the drive appear in the drive manager or the device manager on Windows?
  12. That's interesting. But also this case really sucks. The cable management options are terrible so taking the pc apart to change the CPU cooler would be a daunting experience. So I'd want a big one with plenty of room to maneuver.
  13. I don't have either the budget or the skills required for a custom loop. However I have a good 750W PSU so I'm good at this level. I think the main noise comes from my CPU cooler, and of course the GPU when I'm playing. I would still want a good airflow and more room overall because everything is super cramped on my current case.
