    Are they the correct CableMods cables for the Seasonic?

    Did I buy a mobo with no 5.1 audio??

    Odd, rear I/O is single audio 3.5 mm out. Could always get a soundcard with better audio than the Realtek. I have a ASUS Zonar great card.

    Ddr4 vs ddr5

    Since I no longer do scientific work on my PC I went with fast DDR4 and a I7 2700K from a X99 quad channel rig. Min frame rates are up.

    Which ASUS Z690 board to OC 13700K/KF with ease?

    I find that OC depends on the Silicon lottery not the MB. See below for the specs of my rig, very satisfied with MB I got.

    Further Big Price Cut on AM5 at Newegg, Amazon, B&H Photo, and probably others 7950x @ $550-$555 and 7900x @ $474

    Bought this deal for my upgrade from 5820K/X99. Works fine and the Kraken mount for 1700 was like $5. Solid MB with decent feature set. Plug and play with XMP OC profiles something my X99 had trouble with.

    How come none of the mechanical keyboard last more than 3 year, what happens to 50M keystroke guarantee?

    We have been through three RGB Corsair KBs with next day replacements. Two words for you "Planned Obsolescence". Sorta expected with mass production solder baths and plastic mounts etc. Try a Ducky KB supposed to be the best.

    Is DDR5200 an OK speed for 13900K build? Or consider 5600 or 6000?

    Think about AMD 5950X CPU 16 cores for video editing

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    1300/365 = $3.56 a day to use card. Hell I know people who spend $10 a day on fast food or Starbucks coffee with no complaints.

    SCORCHING: LG 32" FreeSync Premium monitor for $299

    Yes my VA LG 32 "free sync version is glossy great monitor for the money. Runs G-sync flawlessly on my Zotac 3080. If you want the best here it is. Eizo accept no substitutes at 20K a pop.

    32 vs 64 GB of memory for gaming

    Remember Apples RAM disk? Virtual and physical ones.

    Friend's PC is going haywire after GPU died, I have no idea what could be wrong.

    Do not OC mem with XMP, my X99 build corrupts and bluescreens the win OS if I enable XMP. All other CPU OC are stable, for some reason it does not like XMP. I have to reinstall Win.
