I use the 2700x and a 1080 gaming x from msi, along with the same ram and though I am not currently streaming I have tested it out and it works fine. The combo easily tackles streamlabs and any game I throw at it, rarely going above 70% utilization.

As for suggestions, the stock cooler that comes with the 2700x is excellent for a stock cooler. It has RGB, fine cooling at stock and at a slight OC. There is no need to buy a cheap tower cooler, as it most likely won't be doing you any good.

My family has a spectrum 200mbps plan but we are only getting 98 mbps wired to the modem with cat5e and gb ports on both sides. The modem supports 300mbps... I have called them previously but my dad has to approve anything they do. I have talked to multiple reps, some say sending someone to fix it is free, others don't. We used to have a 100mbps plan, but we got a letter saying we were being automatically upgraded.....

How long did it take you to fix it and did you have to pay extra?

Never seen you before on this site, but now it seems the 'hate' is justified.

EDIT: Usually, when a post gets lots of downvotes on this site, it is because it is either insulting or wrong in some way. I don't really see people going on downvoting sprees here, and I have been lurking for a long time.

Yes. Both smart and full scans, with avast. No difference visible... I have also looked into the services, (programs that start by default), backround programs, etc.

It seems to be the sheer number of processes running, but I can't tell which ones are good/bad

Yes, I know that, and have already done it. There aren't that many big processes running, and if I end one, it either comes back in 5 sec or stays away. Either way, the cpu goes back to 99%

not really sure what the minimum is, but the general idea of radiology is to spot problems, which involves scanning very detailed xrays, MRIs, CATs, etc. Pixel density is crucial because in the onset of many issues, the offending substance, tumor, or growth is very small. These images are very thin slices of the body, of which there can be literally thousands per 'study'. Missing something could be fatal...

Yeah you won´t be running into any problems streaming with that cpu...I have the same one and when I have tested it with twitch it works excellently. The cooler is a bit loud but it is just as functional.

Makes sense. My mom is a radiologist and they use some pretty expensive stuff for their rigs..

I got to look at her setup at work once and it had multiple 5mp monitors, (including an ultrawide) a quadro p5000, a xeon, 64gb of ram, and a 1tb nvme ssd.. The monitors are several to tens of thousands of dollars a pop, and the GPU alone costs well over 2 grand depending on the seller.

EDIT: that monitor, if that is indeed what it is for, has an unacceptable pixel count to be currently in use for radiology. 1080p, at least where my mom works, is unheard of outside of secondary displays for documentation, where being medically compliant doesn´t really matter

Its a F2P zombie game. There are modes ranging from ultra realistic no-respawn modes where you have to scrounge for everything to "dodgeball" matches in a high school gym where every zombie your team kills is revived and sent to the other team's side (much more elements besides that, there are weapon/zombie upgrades etc.) The graphics aren't the best (its from 2013 I believe) but its fun and addictive too.

And to expand on the F2P element, not only is it free to download, but the game has no currency at all. No weapon upgrades, improved armor, skins....Everything varies from server to server.

It's a basic concept, but there is a lot of community content, a decent playerbase, and a second game being developed.

And if the rumors are true, his buying into the chipset will all but make imminent a smooth upgrade to the new CPUs coming out next year. (Which seem to be extremely powerful)

Also, as a 2700x owner myself, I can second your statement. The only game that takes up the entirety of the cpu is GTA V (Though I really think this is a bug; How can a game that old take up 7.5+ cores?) and I really haven't had an issue with it. The cooler is excellent too, and I have been using it for months without issue with a slight overclock. The RGB is definitely not something to be scoffed at either.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What are your biggest tech fails?"

Buying a MSI GTX 1080 gaming x used off of r/hardwareswap and then waiting 4 months before actually testing it.

The guy selling it asked for 400$...I threw an additional 40$ at the seller to get their attention. In the description he said it was brand new and that he couldn't fit it in his case. I was skeptical but for some reason bought it anyway, mainly because it was a great deal and I felt lucky that day.

When it came, it had all the red port covers, the original packaging, and even the stickers. I then saved up for an additional 4 months before I booted it up in my rig.. it works fine to this day. ( a month after I built it). The fans don't even turn on most of the time and I can't tell when they do without looking at the card from the bottom.

Technically not a fail, but I seriously was asking for one.

If your pc can handle it, going 1440p isn't at all a bad idea unless you want super-duper frames. IMO, anything above 144hz will see diminishing returns in terms of practicality.

1440p monitors are of course more expensive, but the dell s2716dg (144hz, gsync, 27in, 1ms response time) will be on sale this black friday for 430$ ballpark (including tax) on 11/22. I ordered it today, so I'll review it once I have it.

Yeah, for the most part, it's fine.

I have had an issue with one of the sticks, though. Whenever I turn the pc on from sleep or a cold start, it starts glowing red (the way I set it) but once I've been logged in a few seconds it changes to the default rainbow. Opening the ram software and turning the rgb off and on usually fixes it until I sleep or shut down the pc again. After that the same thing happens.

I am using a dual kit rated at 3000mhz. As I said in a different comment, one is running at 2933 according to the bios and the other is a little over 3000. Ill give exact numbers once I'm home from school.

it is an intel optimized kit if that means anything

I have two intel-optimized sticks of trident z rgb with my x470 gaming plus/2700x build and though they are both 3000mhz sticks, one is at 2933 and another is a little over 3000. Not sure if that information is relevant but it seems a bit random considering what the ram is rated at.

you could probably look on ebay, see what everybody else is selling them for. last time I checked the CPU (with cooler) was 300$ on amazon. The cooler isn't that bad either (not as good as the one you were planning to get though) and it has RGB.
