  1. Update. Computer fixed with a new 24 pin connector.
  2. Smarter windows. Since Ultrawide exist I think windows and apps that run in windows should uses the real estate more intelligently.
  3. Your MSI 2080 ti is still under warranty. So why not RMA it?
  4. Lately I only buy from stores that have quick returns or refunds like Amazon and Bestbuy since half the stuff I buy either underperforms or does not work at all.
  5. The difference is a warranty in most cases. Another is returns. I had a side job years ago doing warranty work and RMAs. If a sales receipt did not come from an authorized store and the serial number did not match the region no action was taken. Some computers and parts came back over and over again from different buyers. I was quit sad. As long as a sale is legit and not a used sale it is up to a customer what they want to pay.
  6. In 2018 ram prices were more than double to what they are now and the headlines read "no relief in site" but by 2019 prices had normalized. Prices did not go down until government got involved. 2018 G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 $202.00 2021 G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 $89.00 In 2018 I was in business(freelance 3D artist) so I had to pay and if I had not retired I would have to pay now.
  7. It may have something to do with static object burn in. Also my B9s are not as bright compared to a C9 but in the show room the images on them looked the same to me. I went several times and had the sales people change content but in the end I saw no difference. My budget at the time was more than double of the 55" C9 so the price did not play into it. What is obvious to me is that the CX or C1 are not upgrades to the C9 just like the RTX 2080 was not an upgrade to a GTX 1080 ti.
  8. They are both 8 bit IPS panels so good for gaming but I could not recommend either for productivity unless it is office work. To me 10 bit(8 bit + FRC) is minimum for that. The Dell is only 75hz so easier to run if you don't have a powerful system. If you have a powerful system the LG is the best choice.
  9. It runs fine with a GTX 1080 ti but the image looks the same as 4k on my 4k TV.
  10. That in a way may have showed up the problem. When I installed the cable only the RGB lights turned on in the computer. I found out that even touching the 24 pin power cable causes either only the RGB turning on or the computer to crash. It looks like my next step is getting another 24 pin power cable.
  11. Yes. Two separate 8 pins on the 2080 ti. The i9 is only using an 8 pin but there is a 4 pin socket available on the Hero XII. I will add it now.
  12. No. I do not have a spare at this time and I am reluctant to pull one out of a working computer. I am thinking about buying one. I will get the GTX 1080 ti up to 300 watts to see if I can trigger a crash since the 2080 ti uses about that running games without an overclock.
  13. An EVGA 1300 G2 that was installed in October.
  14. Yes. They are fine on the i9 and the 2080 ti. I ran Cinebench R20 and Heaven bench to check temperatures and the computer did not crash running them.
  15. Yesterday my i9 10900k/2080 ti computer crashed with a blank screen while playing BattleTech. It was the first time the game had crashed on that computer so I did not think much of it until it crashed again on the reload of the save. I decided to test with a graphics heavy game so I loaded up Control and it was fine in the menus but as soon as the game started it crashed. A few minutes later it crashed in Chrome. Since it was crashing to a blank, black screen I pulled the 2080 ti and put it in a i7 8080k computer and it worked fine in both games and Chrome. That was a relief s
