    my ram OC's to 4000 CAS 18, should I just leave it at 3200 CAS 14 instead?

    it will really depend on the usage. somethings will respond better to the extra bandwidth 4000mhz gives you while somethings will like the lower latency 3200mhz gives. i would imagine somewhere in the middle will be the best overall exp. like see how tight you can get them to run at 3600mhz or...

    AMD Readies Radeon RX 500X Series Graphics Cards

    i thought some stuff like the older gta games still crashed? i would of thought gddr5x would of made sense for the 70 and 80 cards as they're somewhat starved in that area but to do the whole range?

    Kingston KC1000 240 GB

    wait, what now? thumbs up No thermal throttling thumbs down Thermal throttling with heavy writes a little bit confusing that part tbh. other than that a great write up, as usual, dude.

    Metro Exodus to use Nvidia RTX

    those shadows on that fridge looked amazing xD raytracing has been around for years. doing it real time will enable some nice touches but on the whole it is not going to revolutionise games. it won't have the same impact as tessellation or pbr textures did for eg. imo anyway :D

    ASRock X299 PROFESSIONAL GAMING i9 XE

    it would of been nice, and informative, had you redone them to show what (if any) impact the multi core and extended ram frequency range had on the scores. i mean the extra clock speeds must have an impact, or has intel got them to lock that down in the bios so much due to the power input...

    CPU question

    if there is still time to change your plans you would be better served (imo) going to sandybridge or later.

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X & Ryzen 5 2600 Review Popped Up Ahead of Time

    comparing it to skylake gives a ballpark figure to work from. nothing new intel has done since has changed much of the tech inside the chips other than adding 2 extra cores. throw a 50% bump on its score's and you have a ball park figure for the 87k. i have to say it gives the buyer more...

    [RUMOR] GTX 2080 to be reassuringly expensive?

    for over a decade ago i am happy with how close i was :D idk if it is my rose tinted glasses or if i can recall a generation change which brought as big a step in performance as we got going from the older dx9 cards to these 1st gen dx10 ones.

    [RUMOR] GTX 2080 to be reassuringly expensive?

    88gtx started the nvidia revival after ati stomped them with teh 1800 and 1900 cards. the first 2 88gts' (640 and 320) came not long after the gtx. then i think the ultra was just before they refreshed the g80, cores with the g92, which nearly every man and his dog had as the 8800gt. the 3rd...
