  1. Oh wow I didn’t know that! I thought if all SATA ports were in use it meant only 1 NVME (number 1) was still enabled. Thanks! Maybe I should get one of the new Samsung ones?
  2. I do have a 1TB NVMe Samsung 970 EVO Plus as a boot drive. But I just recently found out that using some SATA ports disables some NVMe ports so even though my motherboard has 3 NVMe slots I can only use 1 actual NVMe drive. The graphics card blocks the second NVMe slot.
  3. Yeah I do. My motherboard comes with 3x NVMe slots but then someone told me if I use certain SATA slots it disables the NVMe slots so I have to stick with SATA as I don’t know which of my NVME slots are disabled. I do have a 1TB 970 Evo Plus NVMe as a boot drive but I don’t want anything on it except Windows and a few of my most demanding games. Like RDR2 & AC: Odyssey.
  4. Hey guys, Im running out of space on my 1TB 860 EVO & 1TB 860 QVO so I wanted to upgrade my 1TB WD Blue HDD to a 2TB SSD. Which 2TB SSD offers the best bang for the buck? I see that the 2TB Corsair MX500 is like $50 cheaper than a 2TB 860 EVO but will I be giving up much in terms of performance if I go with the MX500? Or is there a better choice? Thanks!
  5. Oh ok thanks! Mine is a MEG Z390 ACE which I upgraded from my old MSI z270-a Pro.
  6. Do you know if higher end motherboards provide better sound than lower end ones? Or will an $800 motherboard and $80 motherboard both provide the same quality sound?
  7. Oooh okay gotchya! Here is a question I have: Do higher quality motherboards provide better sound? Or do all motherboards from $80-$800 have the same sound chip?
  8. I don’t have a sound card in my PC but I still get good sound in all the games I play and videos I watch. Which component is providing the sound? Also what is the point of a sound card if you can get sound without one?
  9. Did you play the DLC? I found that by doing the Legacy of the First Blade and Fate of Atlantis quests alongside the normal game quests that it didn’t get too repetitive.
  10. I used Google too for some of them. Especially the ones out at sea since I didn’t want to end up attacking every ship I saw. For like the first 20 hours of the game I didn’t even know you could find those eagle markers and make them fast travel points so I ended up having to go back and get them all and at the time I couldn’t go back to Kephalonia where I started. I was kinda pissed about that since they never mention the fast travel points all over the map. Did you see that achievement where you have to get the Cyclops’ (from the intro) eye back by killing goats aft
  11. Have you finished the main game yet? Also the Cults and Orders? I finished the game then did that stuff. Ironically my spear was only level 5 when I beat the game even though 6 is the max. Honestly the way I see it: $60 for 200+ hours of entertainment is definitely worth it. That’s less than $0.30 an hour! Im glad I got the best ending though. P.S. I was going to upgrade to a 3080 but with all the supply problems & the price tag I figure a 2080 Ti will be good enough to wait for the 4000s series whenever that is.
  12. Ah yeah well not that part. But I think that part was meant as an expansion intro so you could play the Atlantis DLC. They had to get you there somehow.
  13. Oh yeah I saw that! I haven’t done it because I wanted to explore naturally first and I’m pretty sure I know all the stuff they’ll try to teach as a student of that period.
  14. You know you can just hop back into Kassandra/Alexios right? Just go back in the Animus.
  15. I agree it was a nice game. I was fortunate enough to play with an 8700K & 2080 Ti so I got about 85fps on max settings but I can only imagine the disappointment with lower specced hardware like a 1050 or something. I loved the visuals though. It was the closest thing to time travel in the modern day.
  16. I think it also matters whether you have an interest of Ancient Greece. I’m studying Classical History (Ancient Greece & Rome) and I thought it was amazing being able to actually see a fairly accurate depiction of Ancient Greece. Not to mention on max settings the visuals were incredible. I agree the quests were repetitive but that’s why I played the DLC simultaneously with the main game, to mix things up. I found by doing that I was getting a fair mix of quests. It was awesome to see and talk to famous people from Ancient Greece like Herodatus and Pericles.
  17. Hey guys, I just finished playing AC: Odyssey. I played very thoroughly and put in ~200 hours and got most achievements. What did you think of the game? I feel like it’s highly underrated.
  18. Do you know if a Corsair RM850x is considered high quality? Thats what I’m currently using and I’m hoping spending that extra money at least guarantees a higher quality PSU with less risk of catastrophic failure.
  19. Ah ok thanks! I just noticed my idle temps on my 8700K used to be low 30s C like 32-33C but now they’re like 35-36C idle and idk if it’s because of the thermal paste or just the ambient room temperature.
  20. But do you know approximately how long that is? Like how often do you personally reapply it?
  21. The last time I put thermal paste on my PC was about a year ago when I put some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut paste on and I’m wondering if I’ll need to put more on soon? Or does the paste usually last a couple of years?
  22. I think it’s a good deal. I sold my old 1070 Ti for $300 not long ago.
