  1. There is a widespread compatibility issue with RTX 3000 GPUs using HDMI 2.1 optical cables. Sadly i had the exact same issue where i couldn't get any optical cables to work at full bandwidth, but 3m copper cables worked without any issues. Most cable manufacturers know about it and most amazon sites selling 2.1 optical HDMI cables specifically state there are issues with RTX 3000 GPUs. I've tried 10 or so different "2.1 marketed" optical cables and not a single one worked at 4K 120Hz. I've almost gone crazy myself trying to figure this out. The highest i got to work with any cable was 4K 60Hz
  2. Especially for 4K gaming there is no real point in upgrading, as most of the work has to be done by the GPU anyway. If you feel your PC can handle your editing etc. then you're fine.
  3. Is DSC a software or hardware thing? A friend wants to buy a 38GN950-B but i've read it doesn't support 160Hz 10bit color without chroma subsampling. I've been thinking: Is it possible, LG will add it through a firmware update later on?
  4. Those are not cheap, but rather high-end when it comes to 650W PSUs.
  5. The cheapest 650W PSU i found on PCPP that's still good enough to recommend: Corsair TXM Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply (CP-9020132-NA) - PCPartPicker Will have no problem running your build. Seems like the right fit for your budget.
  6. All Fractal Design "S2" cases will support all your devices. Also the new Meshify 2.
  7. If price is not a concern, go for the Noctua NH-D15 chromax. It's pretty much the gold standard for air coolers.
  8. My guess is that the CPU OC is the problem. Why do it at all, when stock boost goes to 4.65GHz? You're probably even losing gaming performance with your OC. Also in games like DOOM it's completely useless to run at 300+ FPS. Just lock it at your monitors refresh rate. It's not like you need every competitive advantage you can get in this game.
  9. The NH-U12A also has 100% ram compatability, but i think all the others overhang the ram.
  10. Great Air Coolers: Noctua NH-U12S / U12A / NH-D15 / D14 / D15S be Quiet Dark Rock 4 / Dark Rock Pro 4 Arctic Freezer 50 The Noctua U12S (not the U12A) is a bit worse than the rest because it's smaller and only runs on 1 fan, but the rest is very similar in terms of performance. All of them are great replacements for the stock cooler. If you want an AiO, the Arctic Liquid Freezer II series is one of the AiO performance kings and a great value pick.
  11. Then get the vertical bracket @mxr00t mentioned and mount it vertically to a fan.
  12. Yes it has DSC. And it's overall one of the best monitors on the market: The monitor includes 1 DisplayPort 1.4 cable in the box.
  13. Yes, it that one. Here's also a really good and detailed review. LG 27GN950 Review, Next-Gen 4K 144Hz Monitors Are Here - YouTube But might be a bit expensive for a 2nd monitor.
  14. Displayport 1.4 doesn't have enough bandwidth for 4K 144Hz natively. You need to look out for a monitor and a GPU that both support "DSC" (Display-Stream-Compression) to be able to run it. Any RX5000/6000 or RTX 2000/3000 GPU will support it. And for the monitors you have to look at the specs and if they use DSC. For example the LG 27GN950-B does.
