  1. Hi guys, I have Acer Predator Helios 300, bought 2 years back. Recently it has started to show very high temps for both CPU & GPU. CPU reaches at 96C & GPU at 92C while playing rocket league & CSGO, even though i keep the fan speeds at max. I tried to check whether the thermal paste is ok or not but couldn't get 2 of the screws from the heat pipes(their heads wore off) so just cleaned the fans & tried again but the temps still reach 90C tried keeping the laptop tilted so it can take up more air but no difference. Any suggestions?
  2. I am not sure about how your card looks, but hardware Unboxed did a review of Asus TUF 5700xt and it had even higher temps especially the ram modules. Might be the issue their design itself. link -
  3. I hope @LinusTech benchmarks these..
  4. http://comparesizes.com/ Found this site which gives a relative comparison between objects of different dimensions. Maybe useful to compare case sizes, thought to share here.
  5. I had that kind of issue when my network speed was limited. it takes forever to come out of the smoke, keeps ruberbanding being inside it.
  6. Hi everyone, I live in India but the ping I get for asia servers is above 180ms When using recommended server, it takes me to EU servers which also gives me 120-160ms latency I contacted RL support multiple times for this but they couldn't identify the issue. Is there anyone with a solution here by any chance?
  7. Thanks. Yes I know i overkilled a bit with the cpu, however Igot the CPU & RAM from USA. CPU for $320, while it is selling for $417 here. RAM for $78, while it's selling for $92 here. So i saved a lot actually. So I got both the items in less than the amount of r7 3700x India price.
  8. Hi thanks for the input. Yeah I know it comes with a stock cooler. Unfortunately 5700xt price here is equivalent to 2070s. ($685) For the psu since you mentioned 550W i have corsair VS 550W will that be a good option to reuse it?
  9. Hi, I am planning a new build, for that I have already bought Ryzen7 3700x & G Skill Rip jaws 2x8GB 3200 Also planning for Gigabyte 2060S for its price here in India. Considering to build it in micro/mini form factor with black & white theme (no idea whether the gpu will fit the current case I have selected down below) following are the items for rest of the build for m-ATX Please suggest any changes for below parts/changes for m-ITX form are also welcome. First time building considering color scheme so I need a bit help with choosing appropriate color for case + motherboard + GPU [will be using AMD wraith prism which is black, also have bought the 2 sticks of RAM which is of black color as well) PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor CPU Cooler: AMD Wraith Max 55.78 CFM CPU Cooler Motherboard: MSI B450M MORTAR TITANIUM Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8 GB GAMING OC WHITE Video Card Case: NZXT H400 MicroATX Mini Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair CXM 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($89.99 @ Corsair) Total: $89.99 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-10-29 05:50 EDT-0400
  10. Ok. So I am considering Gigabyte gaming OC for 2060S. Since it's for 39k while the 2070S is for 48k, I'll be able to spend the extra on a good case/M.2 Meanwhile I checked bottleneck calculator from pc-builds.com and it shows that it will bottleneck with the CPU. https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Ryzen_7_3700X/GeForce_RTX_2060_SUPER/0Ud14p8A/8/ However when I checked a few benchmarks of r7 3700x + 2060 super on youtube, it was giving descent framerates even at 1440p views? (Note that I currently have 1080p 60Hz monitor & will go with 1080p higher refresh rate one in future) --Edit-- Please help me choose other components here -
  11. Is Colorful a good brand to consider 2070 Super?

    Its selling at 42k INR in India

  12. I am considering 2070s but will 2060S suffice for 1440p ultra 60+fps for my library? It might save some money for other parts. Following are the price ranges- 2060s ~ 34-39k 2070s ~ 44-49k 5700xt ~ 39-49k https://www.primeabgb.com/buy-online-price-india/graphic-cards-gpu/?pa-_stock_status=instock&pa-graphic-card-series=rtx-2060-super%2Crtx-2070-super%2Crx-5700-xt&pa-graphic-card-memory-size=8-gb
  13. my game library - https://steamcommunity.com/id/beingGamer/games/?tab=all
  14. I am going to build my new pc by end of this year. I have bought Ryzen 7 3700x & Gskills Rip jaws 8GBx2 3200 RAM. My monitor is 1080p 60Hz at the moment, but might upgrade to higher refresh rate one or 1440p in future. I am considering RX 5700XT or RTX 2070S for GPU. I am from India & the prices between the two aren't as different as they are in USA Exmaple - GBGOC 5700XT - https://www.primeabgb.com/online-price-reviews-india/gigabyte-radeon-rx-5700-xt-gaming-oc-8g-graphic-card-gv-r57xtgaming-oc-8gd/ GBGOC RTX 2070S - https://www.primeabgb.com/online-price-reviews-india/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2070-super-windforce-oc-8gb-graphics-card-gv-n207swf3oc-8gc Almost same price... Please suggest which one i should go for, or any other GPU that will be compatible with my CPU
  15. Sorry if this seems dumb asking for inputs just out of curiosity, which gpu AMD/NVIDIA will be cheaper option for longer run (may be 5 years or +) NVIDIA equivalent AMD gpus are cheaper but less power efficient, so you might pay less in the beginning but in long run you might end up paying more on the power in comparison to NVIDIA gpus. inputs?
