  1. That's a good shout! That thing is indeed quite the unit. I'll check that NH-U12S out as well
  2. That's good to hear! I guess there's nothing wrong after all. After getting some sleep, I got up and checked to see if all the fans in the case were working. It appeared that one of the front fans weren't working, and it turned out that the connector just wasn't plugged in all the way. After getting that fan to work, I also installed the fan from my old liquid cooler in the back of the case to draw air out the back. The idle temp has now gone all the way down to 40-ish, though it's still jumping up and down whenever the CPU boosts up to 4,3 GHz. But I guess that's normal. Thank you all for the help! I'll give you an update once I've given that "Cool'n'Quiet" feature a shot.
  3. That's actually the cooler that I wanted to get, but my budget didn't allow it at the time. I'll definitely try that one out when I have the dough. I've never heard about "Cool'n'Quiet", but I'll give it a shot! Thanks for the help :)|
  4. I've not checked that yet. It seems like I'll need to apply new thermal paste if I choose to remove the cooler, which I don't have at the moment. I might be wrong though.
  5. I thought that maybe could be the case. When buying the new parts, I didn't think the stock cooler would actually get that hot, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. The fan is also really loud when the temp jumps up. Do you have any recommendations for a replacement? I think I'd prefer an air cooler over liquid cooling.
  6. I just finished building my new computer, and everything seemed like it was in order. I installed HWMonitor just to make sure that the CPU wasn't running too hot, and I noticed that the temps are higher than what seems to be normal. I checked the BIOS first when testing to see if the computer would post, and there it stayed idle at 51 degrees Celsius. In HWMonitor I'm now seeing it jump between 45 and 60 degrees at idle. I ran the computer through 3D Mark Time Spy to check if it was too hot under load too. There it peaked at around 88 degrees. I don't know about you, but I feel like these temps are too high. Should I remove the CPU cooler, wipe off the paste and apply some new? Here are my specs: MOBA: Asus rog strix b450-f gaming CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800x (with stock cooler, using the thermal paste that was already on the cooler) RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200mhz 16gb GPU: Msi Geforce GTX 1070 gaming x PSU: Corsair RM750x EDIT: I should probably also mention that it reached 78 degrees while installing new graphics drivers.
  7. The only thing that remains to be decided is which motherboard I want. I'm a little torn between the Gigabyte Aorus Elite and the Asus Prime X570 Pro. They are both at the same price right now because the Asus mobo has a discount.
  8. I can't find the Gaming Pro Carbon AC with AM4 socket, and the Crosshair 6 Hero is more expensive than the one I listed. I really think that the motherboard I listed is the one I need considering what is available in Norwegian stores. I want to be absolutely sure that I'll have enough power for the future. I might upgrade to a dual gpu setup in the future if that's necessary. I think I'll need at least 650W, however I do agree that 850W might be a bit overkill.
  9. If I replace the 2x16 chips with 2x8 chips instead, I'll have enough money to buy a Corsair RM850x. Considering the fact that the PSU is 7 years old, I think this might be a better idea.
  10. The X470 seems to be a bit iffy to get hold of in Norway, at least for a reasonable prize. The one I listed costs the same in Norway. Can't really seem to find the X370 C6H either.
  11. I'm not sure. I was going with 16gb first, but my friend said that I should go for 32gb for the future. Might be smart since I'm going to use a lot of plugins to produce music, but I'm not sure. Do you have any other suggestions when it comes to the motherboard? I need support for the Ryzen processor, PCIe M.2 ssd, fast ethernet, enough USB-ports (at least 7 ports), DDR4 memory and the MSI GTX 1070 Gaming x.
  12. I think that one is going to be a bit too expensive. Is it really necessary?
  13. I'm planning on upgrading my old rig into something that'll be future proof for the years to come. I bought the parts and built the computer in 2012, and I replaced the graphics ca. 2016. I want my rig to be able to run most games on ultra settings with a minimum of 60 fps on a 1080p 144hz monitor, and I also want to produce music on it. Here's the old specs: Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (with window) Motherboard: MSI Z77 MPOWER CPU: I5-3570K CPU COOLER: Corsair Hydro Series H60 V2 GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (upgraded from a EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked+ in ca. 2016) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb 1600MHz DDR3 PSU: Corsair HX850 HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 1TB SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 120gb MONITOR: BenQ XL2411T 24" 144hz I was thinking that I only need to replace the cpu, motherboard, ram and ssd. However, I'm not sure whether there will be enough space in the case and whether it's smart to keep using the old psu. I'm also a little out of touch when it comes to what is good nowadays. Here's a list of the parts I've picked to replace the old ones: Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite, Socket-AM4 CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (using the cooler that comes with the cpu) RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 32gb SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB, PCIe Gen 3.0, M.2 (there's a sale on this one right now) My budget is around 10k in NOK (Norwegian Kroner), and it seems that Komplett.no and Dustin.no have the best prices in Norway right now. Some friends have told me to wait and see if things get discounted, so I might wait until the end of August until I buy the parts (the sale on the SSD ends on the September 1.). What do you guys think?
  14. I am considering upgrading the SSD to a bigger one now that we're spending less money on memory and the motherboard.
