    I'm interested in buying the system, do you have the 4 levers qudrant like the 747?

    If so, how would you like me to send the  money ASAP?

    Thank you!

      Ok thank you!

  2. What kind of damage are we talking about? Any pictures? Will there be any changes in packing to insure this will not happen again? Just wondering as I await my E-mail Edward
  3. Yes I agree with you. I think it will be best to wait till I get to order the 5900X and GPU. Hopefully the reviews will be out and if the reviews are great for the Asus I will probably go that route. Either way I think these will be the boards I will be choosing between.
  4. No I talked to Chris and I am still a few weeks out before I get my E-mail. Just relax(Yea right!!!) the E-mail will arrive when your unit is ready😥
  5. I got my MSI x570 Unify but it came damaged so I returned it. I see that the new Asus ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero will be available the first week of Nov. and wondered if this would be a better way to go. It is about $80.00 more but seems it has everything I would need for my MSFS build. I will only have two 1 Tb M.2 drives (operating system & MSFS 2020) and two SATA (1Tb & 2Tb) for backup and storage. The SATA drives will be updated when needed. This will be my last rebuild for a long time so trying to get a decent system together. I will get a Asus TUF 3080 20Gb when available and a AMD 5900X for the CPU. Both motherboards would be fine but the Asus ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero has no chipset fan and 90A VRM stages that would be worth it for me. It also had more USB ports for my SIM hardware but did not know if I would need it? Any thoughts on this as I am looking between $300-$400 for a decent motherboard to use for MSFS at 4K only. I have the X470 Strix gaming F now, so never had a MSI motherboard to compare. I am just trying to get the most reliable solution as this will need to last me for a few years.
  6. I think I will go with a 48"- 50" OLED or QLED when one is made with 2.1HDMI. It will not be till next year anyway before I get all my parts for the build. I am shooting for a Asus TUF 3080 20Gb and a 5900X using a MSI X570 Unify that I ordered. Hopefully all this will work well together. In the meantime my MFG Crosswind V3 and soon to get Fulcrum yoke will suffice till I get the other parts. By that time I hope my Bravo throttle will have shipped. I think going 4K this will be a good compromise.
  7. Thanks. Great to hear you have the same board. Yes I thought that the 5900X probably is the one to get. Hopefully I can sell my Asus ROG Strix x 470-f , Ryzen 2700X and Seasonic SSR650PD power supply when I get the CPU to recoup some costs:-)
  8. Tektolnes Thanks for helping me out on this. After looking at all the X570 boards I ordered a MSI Meg X570 Unify. Which CPU do you think will work best at 4K to be used with the Asus TUF 3080 20Gb when it comes out? This GPU is the one that should fit my Fractal Design Meshify C Case the best.
  9. Yes you are correct. The bios was for Zen 2. If at 4K Zen 3 does not show much improvement I will just find a 3700X or 3900X to use instead.
  10. I updated my bios and from what I read it should work with Zen 3. Since I am just using 4K I am just trying to figure out what CPU will not bottleneck with the Asus TUF 3080 that I am thinking of getting. I do not think the AMD 6900xt will beat it in 4K but we will see soon. I can always upgrade to a newer board if needed but thought my X470 should work fine for what I would be using it for. I am just trying to get my budget together for the items I still will need in the next two months or so.
  11. I am upgrading my PC to be able to play MSFS at 4K. I will be using a 48-50" TV that has 2.1 HDMI. This is what I have now. I do not plan to overclock the new system. Current PC Build Asus ROG Strix x 470-f Gaming motherboard EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 GAMING GPU Flare X 32GB 4 x 8GB DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL14 Memory Ryzen 2700X CPU Be quiet! 250W TDP Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU Cooler 970 500GB TLC NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 Internal SSD Samsung 860 EVO 1TB MLC V-NAND SATA III Samsung 860 EVO 2TB MLC V-NAND SATA III Seasonic Flagship Prime Series TX-850 850W Power Supply Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Case – Black Noctua NF-A14 PWM chromax 2 Pcs. Noctua NF-F12 PWM chromax 1 Pcs. I plan to get a 5800X or 5900X as the CPU I plan to get either a Asus 3080 TUF 20Gb or AMD 6900xt whenever I will be able to get one by the end of the year. Do I need to change the motherboard to a X570 or am I fine with the current Asus ROG Strix x 470-f Gaming? Do I need to change my 32Gb RAM or am I fine with that? Do I need to change my Be quiet! 250W TDP Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU Cooler or will that work well with the new Ryzen 3? Any other thoughts as I really like the case and with all the extra cooling from the Noctua fans keeps the current setup very cool.
  12. Here is an article on someone that has tested some of the higher end pedals. I thought it was a good read and describes my feeling with using the damper in a better light.🙂 https://jaytheskepticalengineer.com/fathering-and-hobbies/flight-simming/flight-sim-gear-reviews/an-engineers-look-at-high-end-flight-sim-pedals-and-the-slaw-rx-viper-version-2s/
  13. Dan, I contacted Milan and he let me know when they might be in stock. He updates stock every week so it only took a couple weeks from ordering to receiving them in the US.
  14. Hi Jozef I tested in DIVIEW and found out the following. Yes you are correct that the pedal does not center if moved slowly back with the damper installed. I also tested the weak and strong standard spring and found the strong standard spring worked best when at almost the same spring tension as the brake pedals. Both with or without the damper showed a slight error .05 -.59 in DIVIEW that was corrected by adding 2% dead zone without the damper and 3% dead zone with the damper. In both cases you can easily feel the center position and it was at 50% either way you move the pedals and returned to the center position. I have 4 clicks on the damper from the weakest position and that feels about right for me. I do like it better with the damper installed after following your advice and testing and readjusting the spring tension and damper setting. The 3% dead zone made all the difference in a locked in 50% when the pedal moves to the center position. You can feel and hear when it hits the center position so you know when you are centered. Either way with or the damper the standard strong spring works best but with the damper it just feels smoother the way I have it under my desk. Thanks for your help on this as I learned something new.🙂
