    I have the 48" CX with a factory clocked RTX 3070 (soon to be 3080). In short, the display is fantastic: text is crisp, HDR gaming is the real deal. It was easy to set up and has been solid ever since. I have no burn-in issues and I don't expect any. Hide your desktop and choose dark...

    Oof! That stinks. We used to live near a grain elevator. I would lose a nic if I didn’t unplug my cable during thunderstorms.

    My bad, it’s 50w with black screen. About 90w average. You have the capacity for only 8 more screens. 7 to be safe. ;)

    Dude. It’s like 50watts maybe. Therefore you have plenty of capacity for a three screen set-up. Get on it!

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    I feel for you, man. I had a system that would periodically freeze in games. Nothing but a hard reset would bring it back. Ran all kinds of diagnostics and stress tests. Everything checked out. Switched out PSU, RAM, GPU, hdds... nothing. So I parted it out and sold everything. Each part...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    Is the Dream machine silent? I’m looking for a new router, too. It looks like I can hook up a wireless access point to it to enable wifi and insert a HDD to hold backups. Is that correct?

    Good choice. And good choice to go with Amazon for returns. I’ve build 3 systems with MSI boards. They were all solid. Check back in May. You’re going to love the board.

    1: Correct. In gaming, CL16 to CL18 might show a 2% drop in fps at lower resolutions. 2. My money's on the Noctua NH-D15s compared to your 7 year old AIO. Seriously, it's a great cooler. BUT if you ant to save $$ just reuse your AIO. 3. Your budget is your budget. For me, building PCs is a...

    Get the 850W PSU. It gives you some headroom when you upgrade in the future. CL18 RAM is okay. For gaming, you will not notice the difference. Still, there's a good chance you can tighten the timings manually. If you're going to put your AIO cooler on the 5800x you'll probably have to call...

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    Steam should have a game-specific hardware chart. For example: what type of gpus are people using to run Red Dead Redemption 2 or the Crysis remake.

    On my x570 Master I jumped from F11 to F33 (I think). I never encountered the power issue. I’d say try the latest non-beta bios.

    Check some side by side comparisons of the 5800x and the intel chip of your choice on Youtube or other sites.

    That makes sense. i tend to build rigs with quality parts. I can't remember the last time I used a Dell pre-fab.

    This site is fine. But other sites don't host so I have to externally host pics to post them.

    Question is in the title. I’d like to right-click, save like a desktop image when I’m troubleshooting. Maybe a Firefox extension or something?

    Interesting. I wonder: perhaps M.2 drives on desktop motherboards are better isolated and, therefore, do not suffer from coil whine.
