  1. The PA32UCG will not be released most likely till H2 2020, waiting on panel production be completed in Q2 2020. Going to need to wait a bit. Apple has a Retina 6K panel the Pro Display XDR https://www.apple.com/pro-display-xdr/ only works with Mac, I don't think my 13" 2019 MacBook Pro could handle the heat, load to run the panel. So I need to go with Windows option and the PA32UCG looks sweet.
  2. I currently have the ProArt PA32UC, bought it new on first release for $1,399. The colors are fine for the type work I bought it for, haven't had any issues with panel. Going to sell it in Q2 2020 $600.00 free shipping. I plan on upgrading to ProArt PA32UCG whenever the production of the AU Optronics panel used is released, perhaps H2 2020. https://www.asus.com/Monitors/ProArt-Display-PA32UCG/
  3. I mostly use Realbench 2.56, and Prime 95 AVX disabled small FFT.
  4. I went with the EK-M.2 Intel Optane Heatsink, the thermal grease included is vary runny/thin. https://imgur.com/XJHVNOv I only used tiny amount as shown in directions and still it came out the sides a bit, so strongly advise using Kryonaut grease and toss the EK grease. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/EK-IM/EK-IM-3831109891001.pdf
  5. I got one of those Fan Brackets in with accessories bundle with my new Z490 Creator motherboard, they didn't include a fan however. I haven't decided yet it's ideal location, kinda leaning towards installing it near the graphics cards blowing onto the M.2 slot to help cool the boot drive. Thanks for the review, I was wondering about VRM temps vs M.2 drive temps.
  6. Welcome back General, good to see your doing well.
  7. You can try "Restore from Steam library" or a few other options on EaseUS site, see if that works. https://www.easeus.com/file-recovery/restore-lost-steam-game-file.html If you can't recover deleted game, you need to re-buy the game, Steam has it on sale now.
  8. +1 on the G.SKILL 3200MHz CL14 kit linked above. Just run in XMP and you will be fine. The gain you will see running faster memory with Coffee Lake is not worth running the higher VCCIO and SA voltage, for a few ms. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/intel-core-i7-8700k-coffee-lake-memory-performance-benchmark-analysis/
  9. I'm sure your card is fine, no chance of exploding from running a game 24/7. You could use VoiceAttack software so all you need do is say "pause track" to toggle off. https://store.steampowered.com/app/583010/VoiceAttack/ Also look through your keybinds, headlock control, or within the TrackIR software, their is a function to provide a keybinding specific to pausing (alongside re-centering) the TrackIR hardware. Seems the exit issue is indeed a bug, most likely a patch will fix, perhaps in Fleet Carriers: Beta #2. https://elitedangerous2016.wordpress.com/category/patch-notes/ Till then exiting through task manager may be your only option, unless you can use a key or joystick binding which suits your needs.
  10. Assign a pause button in the options, pause game scroll to quit and press your accept button. If that don't work, it's a bug. I would ticket it at https://support.elitedangerous.com/
  11. I found an old 2004 thread (23 pages) on STEAM Forums with a few folks resolving issue,.. https://morchkovalski.com/spuf/forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread_219360.html?t=219360 Personally I was never able to get HL2 or DOOM 3 to work in 5.1,.. using integrated or dedicated sound cards, I'm not a dedicated audiophile but for me headphones always sounded brighter and more detailed,.. that's my preference for gaming nowadays.
  12. You will most likely have stability issues running full slots... mixing 2x4GB Mushkin with 2x8GB G.SKILL,.. also yes the timings do mater. Buy a 4x8GB kit or a 4x4GB kit, use your motherboards QVL to see which kits your board supports, and you will be fine running in XMP. Never mix memory modules from different kits, it will generally cause stability issues. Your much better off spending a few more dollars and buy a 4x kit with exact matching modules.
  13. I have a nice 2x16GB 3733MHz 1.35V profile saved in 1502 BIOS, working on 4133MHz 1.4V CL17 2x16GB now. Just finished four passes of MemTest86 on 2x16GB 4133MHz 1.4V CL17, this running under 1.2V on VCCIO/SA.
  14. Asus released new BIOS version 1502 a few days ago for Intel ROG boards, and didn't list any specific changes or improvements in update. I looked and can't find any white paper or listing of performance enhancements or patches/fixes,.. So I went ahead and flashed my boards #2 BIOS with it, and seems they did some huge memory performance updates. With manual memory settings I can run much lower VCCIO/SA voltage, and tighter timings @ 4000+ MHz running CR1 now.
