How does my Ryzen 9 3900X, 2080 Super, MSI B450 gaming build look?
I'm getting an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, EVGA 2080 Super, Seagate 8TB Barracuda HDD, Samsung 970 Evo 1TB SSD, MSI B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard, EVGA 750-watt PSU, and Lian Li 011 Dynamic Razer Edition, will everything work together?
Is it time to upgrade my boot drive SSD and thoughts on my system?
Hi gents, and thanks for the section and advice. I have a three-year-old custom build I put together based on an ASRock X99WS Mobo, Intel Core i7-6850K, NVIDIA GTX 1080, Toshiba OCZ RD400 NVMe PCIe M.2 512GB (boot), G.SKILL Trident Z DDR4 3000 C15 4x8GB, (2) Intel RS3WC080 8TB RAID, WD Black 3TB cache drive and then a Seagate Archive HDD 8TB hot swap for archival, e.g., Acronis backup.
I mainly use this system for large images, e.g., 30MB raw photo editing and video though some games have crept in and added some bloat to the system. I recently ran the User Benchmark test and came up with some questionable results with my boot SSD.
- Toshiba OCZ RD400 NVMe PCIe M.2 512GB
- Firmware: 57CZ4102
- Max speed: PCIe 5,000 MB/s
- Sustained Write @10s intervals: 502 543 652 568 599 547 MB/s
Do you think the boot drive results warrant a replacement to perhaps a FireCuda as an example or are the Toshiba results not significant? Also, what would you recommend, if anything, to future proof the system for a few more years?

Is my gaming PC ready for 1440p streaming with NVIDIA's Ampere GPUs?
I'm thinking of upgrading my PC once the new RTX cards drop. I currently have an Intel Core i7 7700k, ASUS ROG Maximus Hero VII, 16GB DDR4 3600 dual-channel memory, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD, and EVGA 650 80+gold PSU in my build.
I'd like to know if I would need to upgrade anything to stream in 1080p or possibly 1440p as I have a Dell 2716DGR monitor as my primary display. I want to maintain a stable 120 and up FPS. Would upgrading the GPU to the "3090" be enough, or do I need to do more upgrades?
Why am I experiencing gaming controller input lag on my iBuyPower PC?
I used to stream fine when I first got my pre-built iBuyPower PC. Now when I record video or go live while gaming, I feel input delay on my controller, but I play wired. I was considering upgrading RAM, but IDK if that will fix it on its own.

Which replacement CPU cooler will fit the HP Omen Obelisk gaming PC?
Hello! Can you please help me? I've tried asking for advice from HP, who recommended a couple of CPU coolers, which have not fit. I have an HP Omen Obelisk 875-0056NA equipped with an RTX 2060, 16GB of memory, and a Core i7 9700F CPU.
I want to replace the 92mm heat sink cooler with a similar CPU air cooler 92mm with heat pipes, as a straight swap without taking off the opposite side panel or motherboard. Thank you in anticipation.
