  1. Alright, I will be buying 2 of them then. Worst case scenario I just end up using them as case fans... It's just 12 euros for 2 fans after all
  2. They are 22 euros for 1 at my place. Still a bit too pricey
  3. I have a Scythe Ninja 5 which comes with 2 800 RPM fans in a push pull configuration. I'm currently running a 8600k at 1.25v@4.7ghz ("works" on 4.8 as well, but it likes to randomly crash on random work loads such as gaming or watching videos, so I keep it at 4.7), and it reaches low 70s in p95 in terms of temperatures. I'd like to potentially go with 1.3v~ to maybe reach 5ghz. I feel like 70c is already a bit too much for me considering I'm only at 1.25v, so I'd like to get new fans as Scythe Ninja 5's heatsink is enormous, and I feel like it's being bottlenecked by the shitty fans. I'm looking only for 120mm fans as anything above would just potentially cause RAM clearance issues. I know Noctua fans are good, but they are really expensive at 26 euros for the lowest tier fan they have. Are these Arctic fans any good? - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/NPZFf7/arctic-acfan00119a-563-cfm-120mm-fan-acfan00119a They are 6 euros at my place which is really cheap considering how expensive anything else that is good is. Or is there something even better? I could also get a corsair sp120 twin pack for 20 euros.
  4. I have z370 gaming plus from msi. It's definetely one of the low end boards, and I've heard it doesn't have the best vrms, so I'm not expecting any crazy oveclocks out of it. I currently have set it to use enchanced boost in the bios which makes every core turbo boost at 4.3 instead of 4.1\ It reached maximum of 57c during after couple of runs of cinebench r15 What stuff, voltages, etc should I change here to get a 4.7 oc on it? Please forgive me for my being an utter noob. This is my first time overclocking, I want to be real sure I won't fuck up anything

According to the psu tier list, it's on top of tier 2, but the issue is that it doesn't have any reviews. It has 0 on pcpartpicker, 1 3star review on newegg, and 2 reviews on amazon. I was wanting to buy an tx550m, but the psu has 100w watt less, is more expensive, and will only be available in 2 weeks. In general at my place all psus are a quite overpriced when you compare it to prices you'd get in USA. This antec psu had the price that was at least somewhat similar to it's USA's price. On top of everything being overpriced, you can't even get most of the tier 1 psus to begin with. And yes some might say that 650w might be too much for me, and that 550 is what I need. I'd argue on that because I saw a video that had an OCed 8700k and a gtx 1080 ti and it peaked at 520. And you never know, I might want to add another gpu, or use multi monitor setup in the future. All I want to know whether this particular psu is good and won't be a fire hazard. Also would like to know whether it has protection on when power suddenly turns off. Power turns off at least 2 times a year for an entire day for me.
  6. Ok, I went ahead and canceled my order on the psu. Gonna do some more research on this... It was 8$ more expensive than the same product on another store anyways so it's a win win.
  7. Which one exactly are you calling crap? The seasonic m12II is tier4 so it's kind of decent
  8. What do you think about this psu then? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Tc3RsY/seasonic-power-supply-ss620gm2 It's the same price as the fsp one. Also since it's 30w smaller, do you think 620w will be enough for my build? Let's say I OC 8600k t0 5Ghz and the GPU with a quite mediocre OC as well. I also plan to add an m.2 ssd in the future.

I originally wanted to buy this evga psu: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8RvZxr/evga-bq-650w-80-bronze-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-110-bq-0650-v1 but the place I was buying from didn't have any in stock. So I ordered a different one, this one: https://www.fsp-europe.com/raider2-450550650750w/ It is silver rated, but I have never heard of the brand before. If there's anything bad about the psu, then I can still cancel my order as I didn't pay the money yet.
  10. I know 0 about cooling so that's why I have been sticking to air cuz it's simple. How often would I need to replace the liquid inside the radiator?
  11. http://www.inno3d.com/products_detail.php?refid=248 To start with, it's a gpu with hybrid cooling system and it comes with the highest out of the box base/boost gtx 1080 speeds that I've seen of. (1759 mhz base / 1898 mhz boost.) With that said, I would like to know whether it's a trusted and good gpu to buy when compared to your big boys such as gaming x 1080 from msi and gigabyte g1 1080. And you know, since the gpu isn't commonly available in the west cuz it's a Chinese company, so there's not many reviews on it. Also it being Chinese and not available in the west makes it so much more scary when it comes down to quality. All I want is a decent gpu that will not break within a year. Of course it has a 3 year warranty, but still. I have been running a MSI Gtx 660 for 6 years without any issues. And originally I wanted to only go with your mainstream brands of gigabyte, asus and msi just because the current gpu has served me so well. It's right now on sale and the other gpu that has been on my mind (msi gaming x 1080) ran out of stock without any dates of when it will come back.
  12. It's been more or less confirmed that 9th gen should work on z370 in this video: From what it seems, the 9th gen cpus should work on z370 as long as you have the bios updated. My question is, can I still go and update the bios even if the motherboard doesn't recognize the cpu? I currently do have a PC, so downloading the bios update onto a USB isn't a problem. Or maybe z370 would support 9600k and would work right out of the box? I must know this because there is a good deal happening right now on a particular z370 mobo, and the deal expires in a week...
  13. I'm looking to buy the same Asus turbo GTX 1080 GPU as you have. Do you think it's a good buy? How are your temps and fps in games?
  14. Uhh. I have one of those big sized tables which have a place for the pc to be placed it. If you're asking whether if it's going to be blocked in a way it's not going to get any air, then no, it'll be fine.
