Comment reply on Forum Topic "What is the best version of the 2070 super?"

  • 11 hours ago

There is not going to be a lawsuit. AMD will likely have quiet words behind the scene and no doubt to an extent this sort of stuff happens but is kept quiet. While not ideal to air dirty laundry in this fashion, its not in either AMD's nor ASUS's interest to go into a lawsuit.

The other aspect is, exactly on what merit would the lawsuit be? ASUS pointed out AMD recommended PSI which as you say was relatively low for their cards with larger heat sinks, that is not a false statement as that is what they were recommended. Really this is egg on the face of ASUS as they should have thoroughly tested the cards and that is self inflicted wound because the above was exactly that, guidance. So yes while they are somewhat shifty rather then putting thier hands up and owning it entirely, there is no grounds for it to really go further in a legal sense.

Its all moot however as that does not affect the 2070 Strix

Comment reply on Forum Topic "RGB Fan Header Confusion"

  • 11 hours ago

Depends as I say on the fans. In case of the corsair LL fans, its quiet straight forward actually, you do not need a ARGB header. Reason is the corsair fans connect to Corsair's own Lightning node Hub. This in turn connects directly to the motherboard via a USB 2.0 internal header and managed via corsair's iCUE software. Other brands such as NZXT are also similar.

Looking at the upHere kit, that would not work out the box, then fans seem to connect to a simple hub which in turn connects to a ARGB header. basically you need a solution which negates the need for a aRGB header like corsair/ NZXT etc.

Correct, that board does not have a Addressable RGB header. Addressable RGB header and a normal 12v RGB header are fundamentally different, so not interchangeable.

What ARGB fans are you looking at. Some may have a Hub into which you hook into the motherboard via usually a USB 2.0 header and then use software to control the fans.

Quiet simple, is it failing to accomplish any goals / tasks you have in mind? Usually good idea to understand if its actually handicapping any performance goals you have as it is.

If your are limited in terms of performance, what is your goals, budget etc.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Too many Noctua fans?"

There are plenty of PWM fan hubs. They will manage multiple fans and be powered via molex / SATA.

Only one PWM fan however, the primary fan will be read by the motherboard and speed controlled accordingly, however if the fan all have similar characteristics, then its not an issue.

Here is an example, controls up to 10 fans, power via SATA: https://www.amazon.com/DEEPCOOL-FH-10-Integrated-Occupying-Motherboard/dp/B077YHLDSP/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=PWM+Fan+hub&qid=1582630088&sr=8-4 for $15

Though with that said, motherboards are usually well equipped on the slightly higher end chipsets. Can see you mentioned z390 Ace in prior topics. That has CPU fan header, 5 x fan headers and an additional one that doubles up as fan header / water pump. So 6 Fan headers in all, so if you went with 6 fans only as you mentioned, then would not be an issue in addition to a CPU cooler. If you go for 9 fans, just grab a splitter, for a few fans. Most fan headers will not have an issue with a pair of typical fan's off a single header. When you start opting for ones that draw more will you want to avoid that.

When the PC no longer meets my needs / demands.

However, its wise IMO to also employ smart measures. While maxing / setting everything to ultra may sound nice, the reality is some games are overly demanding or optimised so using ultra vs say very high may mean your then dipping under a constant 60 FPS. Makes much more sense to just tweak the game IMO, more so as moving down a setting on the higher side usually makes little visual impact.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2080 Super Vs 2080 TI"

  • 7 days ago
  • 2 points

Probably need to look at it in terms of %, so as can be seen here at 4k the 2080Ti is about 19% ahead in gauntlet of games and about 15% at 1440p: https://youtu.be/cxuoDyjemdA?t=640

Next the 2080 Super and 2080Ti use different cores, not just a matter of the 2080Ti having extra power / voltage. It has a bigger core, so at the same clock speed will out perform the 2080 Super. Similarly when overclocking, its partly down to the silicon lottery, but in terms of frequency, both will typically reach a similar level of around 2000 - 2100 Mhz with some samples either side. However the 2080Ti will still usually perform better as it has a bigger core.

In terms of price, to be fair you can get some solid 2080Ti models for around $1100 like the strix or gaming trio. Fundamentally however, is it worth it from a price to performance increase, no not really, but the simple fact is, its a Halo product (for the gaming stack at least) and with no competition therefore you pay a premium for the best. This is not unique really and companies in such a position will charge what they want knowing people are willing to pay top dollar, even if the price / performance ratio is somewhat diminished.

Read and look at reviews. Cannot simply compare architectures in a easy manor by just looking at say clock speed for example. plenty of factors contribute to the CPU's overall performance, which in itself varies depending on the task.

If the specific example your looking at is not available, look at a similar CPU to get a gauge. The 4790k for example may tend to pop up in comparisons vs the 4790 (non-k). Here for example is a recent review of the 4790k (and 4690k) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6RsDyMn2gY

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Question on if I need a light controller"

  • 8 days ago

If you want to sync all of the lighting on the motherboard and Corsair devices, then yes. As mentioned, only recent drivers at the start of the year allow iCUE to also manage motherboard lighting on select ASUS motherboards in sync: https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/corsair-brings-icue-lighting-control-to-asus-motherboards.html

Can confirm it works as I now have my corsair Ecosystem synced with two ASUS boards (X299 Rampage and z390i)

However, the above is just for syncing the two ecosystems. You can have iCue with your gigabyte board as mentioned to control the corsair fans on the case, then another piece of software to control the Gigabyte lighting. So you will be able to change the lighting, just not sync them.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Question on if I need a light controller"

Ahhh yeah, okay they will not connect with one another.

The Corsair fans will connect to a corsair lighting node Pro unit which in turn connect to a internal USB header on your motherboard. You will then have to use iCUE to manage corsair peripherals.

the Gigabyte motherboard will needs its own software to control the RGB lighting on the board and any devices you connect up to it.

The only manufacture who recently introduced cross compatibility was Corsair and ASUS so can sync some lighting systems between them.

What motherboard and case do you have, all varies. In general most recent motherboards will have RGB headers to allow you to plug in RGB peripherals. Similarly some cases have RGB header that plugs into motherboards which will allow you to control RGB together. but this is at a high level and as I say, varies.

Yeah LG comes with some software the works well. I did until recently when I got rid of my LG panel. Worked great as you can split it up in various configs. I did one large panel taking up the left hand side of the screen, then two small panes on the right side, with one showing E-mails and other misc documents, this video shows what I mean better then I am describing: https://www.lg.com/us/support/video-tutorials/ultrawide-monitor:-4-screen-split-monitor-CT10000018-1441921251016

Not used anything recently now not working from home as often, but there is some stuff that will work similar, AFAIK been recommended this one, but not yet tried it: https://www.ivanyu.ca/windock/

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Will these monitors work together?"

  • 11 days ago
  • 2 points

Personally would get the same monitor if buying from the onset given your planning to use them both heavily rather then the second one as a simple peripheral panel, or at least get similar sizes, granted different story if you already have one monitor then buy another, but not the case here.

The refresh rate is the same on both panels you picked, but other elements are different. I assume given the difference in size your not going to game on the second one in which case to be honest I would go for a 27" 1080p panel at lower refresh rate then 24" at higher refresh rate.

You could as others mention grab a 3440 x 1440 panel at 34" which would offer pretty similar real estate to a 27" 1440p panel and a 24" 1080p panel you listed but in a single package. Works well for working from home IMO ( I use one for that) and also great for gaming. Can get software which splits the screen nicely, LG monitors have the functionality built in which segments up your screen which works really well for working from home IMO.

But just my two cents, For working, environment, everyone has their own preference / priority.

Personal preference, but for myself went 3440 x 1440 when resolution first came out, nearly half a decade ago and moved up to higher refresh rate ones like the X34 and have 0 regrets. For gaming at a desk, the extra horizontal pixels really do add immersion and most games support the resolution well these days.

The 2080S will pair really well with something like a X34.

As your in UK, would look at the following: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/tTCFf7/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8-gb-windforce-oc-3x-video-card-gv-n207swf3oc-8gd

Its actually one of the cheapest 2070S models around from the CCL vendor (£10 more then absolute cheapest) but neat thing is, the Windforce 3x cooler on it is actually pretty capable. It will keep the card both cool and quiet when you look at reviews. May not be the prettiest and have the most RGB zones, but from a price perspective in relation to cooling / acoustical properties, its a very nice model. Kitguru has done a review on it: https://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/dominic-moass/gigabyte-rtx-2070-super-gaming-oc-8g-review/16/ can see for example it shaves 10 degrees or so off under load vs the 2070S Founder model while being just over 3db quieter.

Looking at one of your prior part lists in another thread, appears you listed it, so seems a model you already considered, hopefully above affirms its a solid model.

Can confrim by checking the H210 page: https://sta3-nzxtcorporation.netdna-ssl.com/uploads/download/attachment/760/H210i_H210-manual-ver3-041919.pdf From manual it suggests while a pair of 140mm fans would fit, they would not out the box with a 280mm radiator also, only 240mm rad and fans. With that said, this person has managed to fit an X62 in there: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/8mtgXL and this thread suggest you can mess with things to get it to fit: https://www.reddit.com/r/NZXT/comments/cobcig/will_the_kraken_x62_280mm_fit_the_new_h210h210i/

The Evolv ITX is slightly larger in all dimensions and does have more radiator support. I suppose it comes down to which one you prefer aesthetically to an extent IMO.

Generally speaking, the Tri X larger cooler means its slightly cooler and quieter with the stock fan profile out the box. Not the the extent that it will matter massively to performance, a couple of MHz and few db quieter. Aside from that the larger cooler does have some more RGB bling etc. Guru 3D has reviews of both models, check the temp and noise section. Performance will be largely similar:

Motherboard or Manual does not specifically list the specs on the Fan headers. Normally its 1A for most headers. You should be fine running a few fans off each header but unlikely you need to, enough headers in all I expect:

  • 1 x CPU fan header
  • 1 x water cooling CPU fan header
  • 3 x system fan headers
  • 2 x system fan/water cooling pump headers

Yes you can run fusion software to manage the Gigabyte stuff then Corsair iCUE for the corsair stuff.

May not help you, but Corsair can now sync with ASUS gear with an update. I have my Corsair peripherals running in sync with my ASUS motherboards now and RGB connected to the motherboard. Mention this as you say the GB is on the way and if you really want everything in sync, swapping it for the ASUS ones may be an option.

Its not just about clock speed, the architecture as a whole needs to be looked at. Factors such as IPC which in itself can vary depending on the workload and application.

You can of course use one as a monitor, in fact I have my HTPC hooked up to a LG C9 which has G-Sync and to be honest the combination is damm amazing for gaming.

However the above is for sitting on the couch, up close, slightly different as the current smallest OLEDs are 55", there will be some 48" ones coming out like LG's CX model shown at CES and some from other brands (they all buy LG panels then put there own spin on it), so even then sitting up close to a desk may be difficult at that sort of size. I can see in your completed build list your using a 23.8" panel, so moving up to 48" will be a massive jump. over 300% increase in area.

I would also be wary slightly of screen burn in, for most gaming not much of an issue as things are always shifting, but would be slightly hesitant using one for hours upon hours and having static content showing on the screen with OLEDs at the moment. But meh some people on the internet have mixed comments, some have had burn in using OLED as a monitor, others have been fine after years and there are now OLED laptops so.........

Yes, there are some PCIe ones on market with wifi 6.

So will make things easier, grab a solid mATX board and wifi 6 card and shove it in to the spare slot on the board, job done. Much easier then trying to get a Type E module on mATX.

There are even a couple of z390 boards with Wi-Fi 6, but those are ATX, no mATX with built in wi-fi 6 AFAIK.

Yes that is a big change in requirements as your down to half a dozen boards available in that format period.

Only Refreshed board I can think of is the EVGA Z370 micro ATX. That has a single M.2 drive and Single M.2 Key E adaptor. Could then get a M.2 adaptor and plug it into the second x 16 PCIe slot for additional M.2 drives but would need to update the BIOS.

As above though, what do you need the Type E adaptor for? Seems your limiting yourself severely needing a Type E and then also mATX. Normally its usually used for Bluetooth and wi-fi modules but those are easily negated.

Off the top of my head, AsRock z390 Pro4 has a pair of M.2 slots that provide Gen 3 x 4 lanes and a M.2 Socket (key E) https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z390%20Pro4/index.asp#Specification

The Z390 FTW by evga also has a pair of M.2 slots (abit one is 80mm which is okay as most are that length) then a M.2 Socket (Key E) https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=123-CS-E397-KR

I imagine may be a number of z390 boards which also have a Key E to allow you to plug in a wireless card, but would need to check manually. Out of curiosity, what is the Key E device you have?

I learnt in manual and had manual for a few years after that.

Here in the UK, Manual is actually the predominant transmission. It is changing though, but most people who learnt to drive when I did, it was all manual.

It is also beneficial in the UK to learn manual, even if your going to buy automatic. Learning in a manual will allow you to drive both a Manual and Automatic car, while learning in a Automatic will restrict you to automatic. So here even in the recent 2017 / 2018 period less the 10% of learners did so in automatic. As an overall %, less then 3% of the people who hold a driving license in the UK is only automatic, everyone else will have at least learnt on a manual, so most people in UK will know how to drive stick, just less people buying manual cars when they do pass.

Thermaltake did also show off a Distrocase 350p at computex which looks like a ripoff of the spectre but will come in much cheaper (well $600 vs singularity's price). Could be an option if you could wait.

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

I am confused, are you referring to wanting opinions on the text in the quote mark which is what the buyer is suggesting?

"So a few important notes: you’re going to want to use a Corsair AIO (h150) and Corsair fans. NZXT’s quality just isn’t there. The cases are awesome but they don’t do fans well, at least not yet.

Corsair H150 is a solid AIO, but there is a premium to it. Similarly it depends on what platform your looking at cooling. Corsair's fan's, once again there are so many of them in various flavours, RGB etc that the price changes dramatically, will need to be more specific. They have some solid SKU's but there are other manufactures which personally I prefer, but the corsair stuff does provide a appeal in terms of aesthetics.

The motherboards from Evga just Aren’t quite there. We would go with an ASUS hero or even better the gigabyte Aorus master. It’s actually the highest quality z390 board AND not even the most expensive! Gigabyte really got their operation in gear and did an amazing job on the 390 series and X570 series.

You mention EVGA Dark X299 in title, yet the ASUS Hero is a mainstream board, sounds like your comparing various platforms? With that said, X299 Dark is actually a very solid board for X299. It was designed for overclocking in mind and this can be seen in area's such as there RAM topology, but with that said, the revised X299 boards that are being launched with 10xxx are also more capable.

On the mainstream side, ASUS is a solid option with there Hero, but I would agree, Gigabyte last few gens has really improved, they offer very solid options on z390 and X570.

Rest of it, while overkill, is a great list. The 1600W psu is overkill unless you want 3+ gpus. Get a 1000W and you’ll have more than enough power even with 2 gpus

Not wrong there, 1600w is overkill for 99% of users. Even 1000w is pretty overkill for most unless your going to pick up a pair of power hungry GPU's and CPU.

Most users will be fine on a quality 650w PSU for most the part, which will handle most mainstream CPU and high end GPU combinations fine with some overhead.

ASUS aura will work for things like the GPU etc.

With that said, while you can still install ASUS Aura, However, do be aware, I can see RGB headers on the board, they will NOT usually work with ASUS Aura, so if the fans you mentioned will be connected up to those RGB header's, AURA sync will not work usually. Those headers will likely need ASROCK's polychrome Sync software. It also likely I expect the polychrome software will also be able to manage the RGB on the memory these days: https://www.asrock.com/microsite/PolychromeRGB/

GPU though if ASUS is unlikely to sync with polychrome so may end up with a situation you need polychrome to support the RGB header functionality and AURA for the GPU with memory being okay with either.

Your monitor in the list is different to one in your comments, you list has a Ultrawide 1080p monitor in the list.

You don't need a 1.6KW PSU for that build, not even half of that (800w) will have issues with your list.

You have 850 Pros in your list which are overpriced, but tbh in your other thread a number of these odd parts were addressed: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/339592-cooling-and-storage-for-a-simple-non-cutom-loop-build-in-a-huge-phateks-case your burning money.

Would not bother modifying the GPU to accept an AIO in the short term. That cooler your paying a premium for is a pretty good solution to keep it cool and quiet out the box, your wasting money if its simply a placeholder: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/evga-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-xc-ultra/37.html

Yes it was, see second post. You can see GPU alone can do around 260w out the box and a little bit more peak at times I expect. OC it further and will likely go up a shade. So yes, less then 320w but still a decent amount with a pair of GPU's that CPU and all the other bits with all under a simultaneous load. Given minimal cost increase to 1200w in grand scheme of things, would just opt for that if your sticking to ASUS.
