    is the rtx 2060 worth it ?

    I upgraded to a rtx 2060 myself a few weeks ago and I don't regret it. I'd say do NOT get this card if you have RT in mind. But instead you do get something nice that the 1070ti/1080 don't get and it's already mentioned. DLSS is supposed to give a better performance boost compared to TAA. It's definitely a great card for the price and I don't regret it myself. I also have to say that I wouldn't even consider a used card if I can a new card for the same price and have better performance than a 1070ti and close to a 1080.

    Is SSD worth it?

    It's definitely worth it, but I'd say get a bigger one. 120gb isn't enough for games these days and you need to consider that 120gb is actually only around 100gb usable storage. Then you have to take away another 20-30gb for windows and that barely leaves you with 60-70gb. You really don't need the fastest of the fastest SSD around. Especially not if you're on a budget. I'd say look into the crucial or adate SSDs. They're pretty good and really affordable. You could pick up a Crucial BX500 480gb for 59 euros (probably cheaper in USD, cause VAT is a bitch). Apacer has a 960gb ssd for 105 euros (once again, probably cheaper in usd if you're from america).

    msi x470 gaming plus awkward m.2 screws

    Ended up drilling a small hole in one of them with the size of a m2 and gave it a screw thread within. Ordered a set laptop screws and will just wait a few days before I actually mount it in my system, cause I'm just not comfortable with it having a downward seating position, instead of a straight one.

    msi x470 gaming plus awkward m.2 screws

    This and no hole on top to put a tiny screw in or whatever. Got 2 of these, one for each m.2 slot.

    msi x470 gaming plus awkward m.2 screws

    It's basicly a tiny thumb screw. So it's made of entirely one part. not the usual "rest" platform and a tiny screw to tighten the m.2 ssd.
  6. Oddly enough this mobo came with some odd m.2 screws. Like it puts the ssd into a slope position. I'm assuming this doesn't hurt it in any way, but it's kinda awkward to have 2 of these and not something else that would put it in a straight position.

    How to fix my heatsink

    It is actually possible, though. It really depends on the country you live in and the overall temps it usually runs on. If you live in a warm area, you game frequently/every day and you have the card overclocked. You could have dried up thermal paste and on top of that you could have close to dried up thermal pads. Now if you live in a more humid area and don't really game that much then I'd say it wouldn't be dried up. You could try some things in the past that I had to do with a R9 390. At one point it would shut off once it reached 80c and for some reason it was simply solved by using msi afterburner and putting the power limit on -20.
  8. Recent built a new PC, but kept my old card that I bought like 3-4 years ago and wanted to upgrade it to the 2060. I know I'll have a nice performance boost (well... insane performance boost, by more than 50% in most games according to some benchmarks I looked at), but the issue I have is that I have zero experience with gigabyte hardware. Also the limit I'm willing to spend is 400 on a xx60 series card, so outside of the founders edition there really isn't much choice. Anyone that has experience with the Windforce coolers from Gigabyte could tell me if their noise and temp levels are acceptible? (I've always preferred asus or msi myself).

    Long beep, PC runs normally

    Got a bit of a weird issue going on here. Usually happens when I run a game for a while. My PC starts having a long beep that doesn't turn off till I turn off the PC and turn it back on. Though sometimes it doesn't happen at all. At first I thought it was a overheating cpu, but aparently it's not, cause it still happens even after re-applying the thermal paste. Other things I tried: - Taking out ram and running the PC till it happens with 8gb and 16gb. While using different sticks each time. - Running the PC with my old R9 390 gpu - Taking out the AIO cooling and running it with a cooler master evo 212 air cooling Specs: GTX 1080 Intel i7 7700k 32gb ram Asus prime z270 Corsair hydro series h110i 1tb samsung evo 840 500gb samsung evo 850

    Looking for a good air cooler

    But air coolers in general are cheaper. And why spend like 100 euros on a Air cooler when you have the Corsair evo 212, scythe ninja 4 or Noctua NH-D9L. If you're dead set on going that price you could opt for a Noctua NH-D15.

    My ducky shine 3 got murdered by my cat

    I'm not really into buying a keyboard for 50 dollars when I'm planning to pick up a k70 rgb lux in 2 weeks.

    How likely is it that we lose net neutrality?

    It's been going on for years now. Not only in America, but the rest of the world. It's only more obvious over there, because of the retarded deals ISPs have. The only thing that will change is that companies have to be more open about it. Which can be a good AND bad thing.

    My ducky shine 3 got murdered by my cat

    So as the topic says. My current keyboard got murdered by my cat when she bumped over my tea. I was looking at some temporary no name brands cause cheap and temporary and saw sharkoon. Anyone have experience with their keyboard? I kinda never heard of this (german?) company.

    What's the best full tower case for airflow ?

    I'd say that the Corsair 780t would be perfect for entry level water cooling (corsair h100 etc...). So if I'd have to pick something from this list I'd say the Thermaltake v71. I'm more of a Fractal design define R5 fan, though.

    What excactly happened here? (thermal paste burnt?)

    I kind of worded in a wrong way, what I meant to say with it, but it doesn't have anything to do with power consumption AT ALL. Pretty much means how much watt it generates in heat under heavy load.In this case it's easier said as in 65watts = 65 degrees. Doesn't mean that if you have a CPU with 140 TDP that it generates 140 degrees in heat, though.
