  1. It’s using a 4 core intel CPU and 3050ti, it’s just mindbogglingly overpriced and underpowered. The whole hinge thing is cool, but I just can’t see any way it makes sense to buy it.
  2. But you’re spending all that money to probably have a subpar gaming experience. The displays that Microsoft has used in the past have not had fast response times and the CPUs thermal throttled. It might be different now, but why wouldn’t you just buy a MacBook and a gaming laptop for the same price if mobile gaming is that important?
  3. Yea they put the design first so they could have the entire top portion be glass and useable as a capacitive touch surface. It also makes the mouse look really sleek. Those benefits to me make the charging a non issue. Especially since your computer warns you when it’s low so I just charge it over night and am literally never inconvenienced by it.
  4. It’s an $80 mouse that comes included with the desktop and it’s great to use. The battery needs to be charged maybe twice a year so I don’t understand why people get so upset over the location. It’s not that big of a deal IMO.
  5. It looks like the motherboard doesn’t use a standard ITX mounting pattern so you might not be able to mount it to the case. If you grab a compatible motherboard and PSU for the case you get it should work just fine.
  6. People really lose the forest for the trees. Yes, it’s mildly annoying to charge it for a couple minutes every couple months when it runs out of power. However, the mouse itself is way better to use then the $2 included mouse that other brands throw in with their all in ones.
  7. I would recommend LG's ultragear monitors since they're everything you want, with good brightness, and an IPS display. I'm using the freesync model with my Nvidia graphics card and have no issues. The only thing is they are curved but not dramatically. I didn't want a curved monitor either, but all of the good ultrawides were curved when I bought mine. After a day or two of using it I stopped noticing the curve and actually now prefer it over flat monitors. If you're open I suggest giving it a try. If you don't like it after a week of use you can always return it.
  8. Apple has a 1 year warranty standard. The 15/30 day is for returns. Usually its 15 days for computers and 30 for accessories.
  9. I had newegg ship a 2080 super, ram, and aio in a 4foot by 4foot box with now packaging so everything arrived damaged/dented.
  10. There are several 8k TVs that have 120hz panels. Unless it has DP 2.0 I believe it’s limited to 4K 120hz or 8k 60hz.
  11. When you are adjusting the fan curve make sure you have it set to the right options. 3 pin fans use DC 4 pin fans use PWM. I usually set the fan to be the loudest I will want for the last option then work backwards.
  12. If you want to reduce the fan noise, adjust your fan curve in the bios. If you want to get better control of your temperatures make sure your motherboard doesn't have CPU overclocking settings enabled like PBO (disabling it barely even affects performance). Or, you could just get a different CPU cooler like the hyper212 black.
  13. If you want a new GPU at a reasonable price you have to signup for discord stock drops or watch livestreams with stock alerts. Its a huge pain. If you can make due with the 970 for another year I would just wait it out and enjoy your PlayStation.
  14. Sorry, I meant 5600x, It’s still a 65w processor. I built a pc for a friend and the hyper 212 black cooled a 3800x just fine.
  15. Your build looks good to me. The only thing I would consider is dropping the cooler down to a Hyper 212 black and upgrading the Ram to 3600mhz. You don’t need crazy cooling for a 3600x. The only reason to go bigger on the cooler is if you want the system to run really quiet.
