    New system suggestions

    Any reason for the 64gigs of Memory? The new 10k ssd's are in their infancy, I'd wait a year or so before diving in. Otherwise that is a solid build!!!

    What game? What game? Oh look at the time.

    I have had this problem ever since I started using Steam and my back log began.. Then you get the giant game list from Epic, Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus... I usually just default to some stupid game that is mindless and easy.

    ROG Ally

    The battery life is pretty rough, nothing a 10ft power cable couldn't resolve to still make it very mobile. Not sure why it is up against the steam deck other than the fact it is the only competitor even if it is apples and oranges in terms of performance.

    How badly will a 3600 bottleneck a 3080 at 4k?

    Based on what you currently have you'll see MAJOR gains. Sounds like a cheap and high performing upgrade to me!

    Does anyone use Armoury Crate on their ASUS motherboard desktop?

    Honestly after the first updates I found it to be useless or not updating drivers to latest version they should be and such. It is present on my computer and that is it. A useless program.

    Games with the best audio/sound design?

    Fortnite with 7.2 surround sound is actually pretty freaking cool when there is a lot of action in place. Better than most movies.

    samsung 990 pro

    The SN850x gets my vote, although my main rig has a 980pro, my other rig has an SN850x and its amazing performance for the price over the 990pro.

    Z690 or Z790 for photo editing and mild overclock

    I would save money and swap the 1000w psu with a 650 or 750 watt psu as well. No need to have something you won't utilize.

    Acceptable use, security, and export training would make this answer a hard NO.

    Limit system...reposting my question

    Max bandwidth and what is actually used at the time are 2 very different things. Even if you're using PCI lanes it does not mean you're using them to max potential. 3x NVME + 4090 will still have a very solid performing system. Enjoy the computer and worry less about performance.

    Bent pins while installing 13th gen contact plate, the ram is now not working properly

    What happens when you turn off xmp in the bios then install in the slots you are wanting? I have to agree with second poster that A2/B2 is how it should be per manual. I have found trying to disable xmp helps with memory diagnostics.

    OK to run ASUS motherboard with RAM in slots 2 and 4 instead of 1 and 3?

    It is the tricky part of how the bios works with XMP and memory compatibility and all that fun stuff! I had similar challenges!

    GPU OC/Management Software

    Afterburner will be EOL'ed soon as well due to complexities between MSI and the dev. Which is a huge drag.

    Not surprising. Plus there are a ton of apps on by default that don't need to be. Not really sure how this is news.
