  1. floatplanes server

    Pretty sure they ruled AWS out because of cost concerns. Too much data with too little income to support it.
  2. floatplanes server

    Its called SYW upload. They aren't YT and getting high usage at once does that on servers. I have 9 downloads of FP going on right now and not noticing any issues. They would fail if there was too much stress on servers.
  3. International shipping

    Mindfactory doesn't sell people from outside Germany unless they have registrated company.
  4. Floatplane Forum / Discord

    Do note that FP staff is super-slow to add anything from suggestion thread.
  5. Best CPU cooler for i7 8700k?

    Please reconsider. That case has very poor airflow. The newer edition, P350 is SO MUCH better (not my words, Gamers Nexus tested then both). As for coolers, with $80 you can get pretty high-end aircoolers. If thats USD. For no or med OC Dark Rock 4, Noctua U14S, H5 Ultimate and likes (140mm single towers) are best.
  6. Cooler for I5-8600k

    I don't know for sure, I haven't really looked at what are average OCs people are getting. You might be able to get that, but I imagine temps aren't going to be great. You really need big cooler. In that sense Kraken might be better.
  7. Coolermaster Masterair MA410M with i7-8700k

    By looking at reviews, they are both rather weak in performance. Cool looks maybe, but nada on performance side. AIO will be better for temps. And if you setup custom voltages, then its all good.
  8. Cooler for I5-8600k

    Overclocking results will depend on how well chip itself performs. The TC12DX is by far the best cooler in that price point. U12S would be another option but price difference isn't really into its advantage.
  9. Noctua NH-U12P SE2 For 8700k

    And if it woulnd't come with correct mounting kit, Noctua has support promise to provide it. Unless its for workstation motherboard.
  10. If you like extra work. Like post above says, its going to be fine. Bigger coolers are designed so that backplate and mounting system distribute weigth of cooler all over motherboard. With cooler fitted tight and motherboard fixed tight into place, in theory your whole case would need to bend to make it come loose. If you are overworried, just pick another smaller cooler.
  11. Help

    Thats what I meant. It sounds like low-quality budget PSU. Now, they aren't all bad but they have higher chance to go bad that something from known brand. Another thing could be dying GPU, but that usually shows artifacting (random pixels) before it blows.
  12. Worried about heat from GPU on Wifi Card

    First, all GPU fans are intaking kind, not exhausts. Second, you have much room in that mobo. You can have GPU at top slot and WiFi at bottom. Or have card in 2nd full-size slot and Wifi above that.
  13. Help with cooler master hyper Evo 212

    Its fine, don't worry about it. What you should do is move fan from rear to top. You can also move your GPU to top slot, it should fit fine and you won't see any major change in temps.
  14. Dell Inspiron temps under normal load

    Its hot for basic load, but not too surprising for prebuild. With stock Intel cooler and case with mediocre airflow.
  15. Can I reinstall windows without the product key?

    Its not. Win7 and previous needed written key. Which is why all laptops and prebuild systems have COA sticker on casing. I haven't used Win8/.1 in that length to know if that key would be held in cloud or not.
