  1. Mark 1 for 200euros and Mark 2 for 157euros. Which one should I buy?? My z170 gaming m3 from msi fried, went to RMA, they gave me the money back in a voucher, and I have to buy a new one. I wanted one from the TUF series cause of durability, but here is the LIst of mobos the store has in case someone can recomend a better deal! Link I have a 6700k. Thanks
  2. PSU Upgrade

    Only the Seasonic! The 650w model, but for 10$ more. Sure I can afford it, thing is if it is worth the money I'll spend, will it increase stability?
  3. PSU Upgrade

    Should I upgrade my XFX TS 550W Bronze to a Corsair RM650x? My PC is: i7 6700k(very recently upgraded from a 6600k) at 4.4ghz at least, gtx 970, 16gb ram, 1 ssd, 1 hdd, fractal define c. I wanted to change PSU, to get a more silent build, because I only hear the PSU fan. But is it worth the upgrade in terms of quality and price? Rm650x costs 110$, and I can sell my XFX for 30-40$.
  4. Changing CPU on Laptop

    Noctua thermal paste wouldnt be enough?
  5. Changing CPU on Laptop

    Good quality thermal paste could make the laptop handle 35w tdp?
  6. Changing CPU on Laptop

    Completly agree! In this case, both processors I refereed are cheap, quad core costing 15$, dual core costing 12$. This two are the msot powerfull for the TDP of 25W, and the doubt comes from choosing between lesser cores more frequency, or more cores lesser frequency!
  7. Changing CPU on Laptop

    I'm asking beetween those two, if I should go 4 cores 1.8Ghz or 2 cores 2.6Ghz. I woul put a better one, but has higher TDP, and the laptop might not handle the heat!
  8. I have an old laptop that has a crappy amd cpu V120 1 core only. I want to make it usable, it already has 4GB ram(upgraded from 2), a 60GB ssd and works fine. I've researched and I can replace the cpu for any of that socket with a TDP of 25W. So I've narrowed to this two: Phenom II x4 P960 1.8Ghz quad core and a Phenm II x2 P650 2.6Ghz Dual Core, both have the same L2 cache of 2MB, but the quad core has 256KB (code) and 256KB (data) L1 cache and the dual core has half of that. Which one should I buy to replace? PS: No need for recommendations to buy another computer, thanks.
  9. The psu shroud has holes
  10. Should I turn it around?
  11. But I put my hand on th back of the PSU, and I can feel pretty much fresh air... The spacing for the PSU to breath is a little less, but It is on top of a table so no reason for it to ramp up, I'm getting worried that It might be dying and I have to replace it
  12. I dont think so, I went from 6 rubish fans to 3 fractal gp 12 so...
  13. Today I changed my PC case to a Fractal Define C, it all went fine, but later tonight I started noticing that my XFX TS 550W PSU fan is spinning faster... I checked every fan, did the cardboard tube thing, it comes from the PSU (CPU fan stopped, case fans stopped, GPU fans stopped, still making the sound,kinda windy faster noise). PSU fan facing down. What should I do?
  14. My 6600k is at 4.4ghz Opinions please
  15. psu connectors

    Wrong about what? Could you be more specific? I meant the G2, never used, and never saw the G1, so my statement, yes it was wrong about the G1
