  1. I'm a big fan of Corsair's Dominator RAM and bought my last set at MicroCenter. MC Doesn't carry 3600 Dominator, so looking at Corsair's site, I can either get 64 GB of CL 18 3600 for $600 or 64 GB of CL 16 3600 for $850. The only reason I'm looking to purchase new is that I use my computer as a workstation as well as for gaming, and the 32GB of CL16 3600 Dominator I'm running now gets up to 90%-95% usage under normal circumstances, so I want to jump to 64GB for headroom. I'm running: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula MoBo, Zen 3 5900X, 32GB CL16 3600 Dominato
  2. Budget (including currency): $100 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: VR Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Does anyone know where to get 15mm x 140mm fans? I have a 280mm AIO in an ITX case and need just 1cm more to fit the GPU in. All I can find are 15 x 120. Thanks!
  3. I figured that was the case, but I wasn't sure if Corsair would have the stones to charge THAT big of a tax without good reason.
  4. Is there any tangible, empirical benefit of one over the other? I believe both are double stacked, use Samsung chips, come in similar timings/speeds, the RBGs for them FPS, and have effective heat dissipation. I was always a fan of Dominator purely for aesthetics and ease of use, but when I went shopping to increase my RAM capacity, Trident was $390 to Dominator's $825 for CL16 2880***? Is there anything that I'm not aware of which would justify such a disparity in price? I don't OC (Beyond XMP/DOCP), I just want the RAM I have to work and last reliably for 5-7 years until I upgrad
  5. How so? Top of the line in 2020 = Low/Mid end in 2025 (Generally Speaking). Despite my urge to always have top-tier components, I could leave this system as-is and get through AAA games on lower settings five years from now.
  6. Exactly: which is why I'm asking for empirical, unbiased opinions. To paraphrase the Great Goldblum: "Just because I could, doesn't mean I should".
  7. That's the question: I'm an enthusiast and a bit of a compulsive build upgrader/parts swapper. So do I give into my impulsive and compulsive need to keep the 5950 or do I get relatively similar performance without spending that kind of money unnecessarily?
  8. I've always tried to keep by system towards the high end, so as to future proof it for at least 5 years. I was at Micro Center yesterday after the campers had left for some wire channel and they were finishing up the truck. I happened to be in BYO and one of the salesmen I'm friendly with told me that they had just come across an RX 6900 XT and a 5950X that weren't vouchered yet and asked if I wanted them before they put them on the floor. I jumped on the opportunity, mostly for the 6900, because $200 extra is worth not spending my time in the freezing cold for hours waiting for a
  9. Of course! I would never stoop to the level of those disgusting scalpers. They're deplorable.
  10. Yeah. I guess I was hoping for a decent boost in performance and being able to sell my 2080S while the last gen market is still selling well.
  11. Live & learn. I think I got caught up in the marketing hype for the new architecture.
