  1. A decent PC should be enough to host the server since you don't have too many users. Maybe something with 6 cores and 16GB RAM. You can bump memory up if needed to 32GB. I'd recommend hosting a Java server since you can easily add mods, I don't have much experience with Bedrock but from my knowledge, there are more community mods for Java.
  2. How about a pre-built pc? They generally seem to be in stock, and if problems arise you can swap out parts more easily. Maybe something like this.
  3. If the portability of a gaming laptop is something that would be really helpful, then go for it. Otherwise, I would recommend staying away from gaming laptops. My friend has one from MSI and has nothing but bad experiences so far (overheating, very annoying fans, wifi/bluetooth not working & being hard to replace). I'm sure some laptops are completely fine, but it's definitely a gamble since you'll usually see problems pop up after long term usage. Of course I can't speak for all gaming laptop owners, but my friend's experiences have been negative.
  4. Not too sure about display KVMs, but for usb I've been using this usb switching hub. It works flawlessly and includes a remote so you can put the hub somewhere hidden.
  5. Thanks for the info! Yeah tbh, certain games occasionally look better to my eyes with HDR and oversaturation, but leaving it off does result in a consistent good experience in all games. I'll modify the title of this post to specify it's not a REAL fix.
  6. In Assassins Creed games, there's a slider to set your monitor's brightness in nits. Using the 50 50 50 color balance, 600 nits (the brightness of the G7) made bright points like the sun look inverted so they looked like black holes or something, so I had to use like 1000 nits which is of course not the brightness of my monitor. But after changing the colors to 100 100 100, the 600 nits setting matches perfectly, so is this really over-saturating? AC Odyssey in particular still looks pretty grayed out unfortunately but the brightness settings only match up when using 100 100 100.
  7. So for a while, I was struggling to get my Odyssey G7 to look good with HDR enabled. Games looked extremely desaturated and washed out. Almost a year later I finally discovered what was going on the whole time. Here's an explanation: On SDR, the Odyssey G7 defaults to 50 50 50 for RGB color balance. This is the correct setting and setting to 100 100 100 looks very oversaturated. However, on HDR, you have to set the colors to 100 100 100. When switching back and forth from HDR, the color balance will then automatically adjust to 50 50 50 or 100 100 100 depending what mode you're in.
  8. Ahh this makes sense, yeah I figured the numbers were due to ambient differences but this explains why my 3900XT was cooler. Thanks for the info!
  9. Wow this chip surely runs hot! I found this video (@ 16 min) that shows the 5900X usually running cooler than the 3900x, how did they get these results?
  10. Hey everyone, I just upgraded to a 5900x and did a ton of testing. I'm getting really high temps compared to my 3900XT. Here's some info: Ambient temps: 28-32 C (in a heat wave unfortunately) Idle: 50-60 C 100% Load: ~75-80 C stock Cinebench R20, ~90 C w/ PBO enabled Gaming (w/ PBO & Curve offset -20 & all power/current limits at stock, makes barely any difference to temps vs regular PBO or even stock): AC Valhalla (usually ~20% CPU usage) = 70-75 C Forza Horizon 4 (usually ~20-30% CPU usage) = 73-80 C NFS Heat (usuall
  11. Well thanks anyway! I'll see if I can get an ethernet card replacement, maybe that'll work.
  12. The answer suggested here is to update BIOS, but my BIOS is up to date (A20).
  13. I'm already running the latest BIOS (A20) unfortunately. Hmm strange, do you think they were defective because of the ethernet controllers?
  14. Yeah that's definitely something I've been considering. Thanks for the suggestion! Any ideas regarding the PC or CPU? I would rather not put my PC in another room because I have a O11 Dynamic which is basically designed to be admired haha, but that's also something I'm considering.
