    Question I was looking to buy a pre-built PC to play Cyberpunk and most new games. Which do you recommend?

    So I was looking at two pre-built PCs online. And I was wondering which one you guys think is better for playing modern games at 1440p and 4k Ultra settings. I like playing games like Overwatch, all the new Tomb Raiders, Cyberpunk, Resident Evil Remakes, Battlefront 2, Squad. Games like that. I...

    Question can you run a 1050 ti with i9?

    So am in need of a new cpu and thinking of the i9-9900k as the 10900k isn't that much more powerful so I think its just overkill, plus I only have a 1050 ti, will an i9 pair well with this? I play mostly csgo, apex legends and other games on low settings anyways but just don't want to order it...

    Question Certain PC games show graphics card usage at 0%. These games seem to be running poorly.

    Hi, I have been experiencing some weird problems when I play certain games. I use a software called NZXT cam to track my usage/fan speeds/temps when I play games. I've recently noticed that certain games, such as WoW or the new Avengers game, show 0% gpu usage when I play them. I can still run...

    [SOLVED] i9-9900K vs. i9-9900KF?

    Being on a Z390 chipset and an i7-9700K, I was looking for a possible upgrade of the CPU. To my surprise, the i9-9900KF, that lacks the iGPU, is more expensive than an i9-9900K. Is there any advantage that the KF has over the K?

    [SOLVED] Kaby Lake in Coffee Lake Motherboard.

    I bought a new motherboard, gigabyte B365M DS3H, to replace a Gigabyte H110M 2SH and stupidly only looked at the fact that it had an LGA1151 Socket. I thought that I could just drop my Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz in and everything would be fine. Of course, the PC didn't boot, the HDD light...

    Question i7-9700k vs i9-9900k temperature under the same load?

    Hello! I'm not very knowledgeable about CPUs and have a question. Let's say i7-9700k and i9-9900k were put under the same load (Gaming, Software, etc.). Would the temperature be somewhat the same? Will the i9-9900k get hotter only when pushed even further than an i7-9700k could go? Or does...

    [SOLVED] worth upgrading? or wait a couple more generations?

    Im currently running an i7-8700k. I am considering upgrading to the i7-9700k since it is only 1-5 fps "worse" than the i9-9900k for $154 less. however it would still cost me $360 just to upgrade one generation. If you think i should upgrade should i just get the i7-9700k, or just go ahead and...

    [SOLVED] Cooling Advice for new i9-9900K

    I am upgrading at the moment. I have always been under the impression that if you are not overclocking then cooling a CPU isn't a huge deal, but now I am reading the i9-9900K runs hot even without OC? I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and a CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 that I can potentially use...
