  1. Looking to build a powerful small machine for media editing (Premiere, Lightroom, Photoshop... in that order) and occasional GTA V gaming. Problem is, daily temperatures here in Bangkok range from 26 - 32C (79 - 90F) and humid! I've gotten my build this far based on what parts are actually available in Bangkok (http://pcpartpicker.com/list/YfT3wV): CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard Memory: G.Skill Aegis 32GB DDR4-2133 2x16GB Memory Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Power Supply: Super Flower Golden Green HX 550W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply Case: Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case Videocard: ???? Geforce GTX 1070 My questions: 1) Based on the Cooler Master Elite 130 case and Bangkok climate - 26 to 32C (79 to 90F) - do you guys think it's possible to stock cool the CPU? a) If stock cooling is possible but not in this case, maybe I should go with a different small case to allow stock cooling? Any suggestions based on size, cooling and price? I don't care so much about looks or windows, etc. b) If stock cooling not possible, which liquid cooler can you point me towards? Maybe the Corsair H60? Price and cooling are more important than noise. 2) I'd like a Geforce GTX 1070 but I'm lost as to which model. Looks like EVGA and Gigabyte are my top 2 contenders from Amazon reviews... but which model specifically? I'm using a single 2560x1440 Dell monitor with both HDMI, Displayport inputs. GTA V is my only game, otherwise, it's most important that Adobe Premiere work well. I'm mainly concerned about price and Premiere but perhaps cooling is a factor in Bangkok? Muchos thanks in advance for your help!!! FBP
  2. IPS screen!!! Not to be confused with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) screenings I had to endure last week... whoa is me.
  3. Favorite thing? The backside buttons, of course! Or maybe the resolution AND 5.5" screen size! (now send me my G3!) ;-)
  4. A smartphone would do tres nicely for the Flying Butt Pliers in the US&A!
