  1. The fans gone all I have left is the heat sink itself and bracket.i don't know how Id be able to mount other fans since they don't look like they would be able to just go right on like the old one just slid right in. Il probably just pick up a entirely new one that I see are still sold at Microcenter.
  2. My Hyper 212 EVO fan died yesterday after 6 years. Should I replace just the fan? (I’d still need to reapply thermal paste) or just get a new Hyper 212 black edition? My main question is if I’d be able to use the same mounting points on my motherboard from the old cooler, and not have to take the whole system apart and just screw in the new cooler. i should really just get a new system altogether whenever something on this thing breaks but it’s mainly used by my bro now so ideally I’m looking for a quick fix.
  3. You could invest in or make some type of cover for the keyboard. I got a Ducky One 2 Mini and that came with one which is useful
  4. Just make sure you get a switch you enjoy using and go for it. I bought a EagleTec KG010 for my cousin 2 years ago and its still lasting him well. I'm not 100% sure EagleTec is a rebrand but that's what I heard. I feel like most people don't need to spend a lot of money on a mechanical keyboard to get a good experience especially if you're just getting into them. I definitely felt like I overspent myself when I was first looking at them, but now there are plenty of good budget options.

    Logitech G305

    Strongly considering driving up to to my Microcenter rn and getting the G305. My last wireless mouse I used was a G602 and while I had no issues with it (Logitech quality) I found the overall sensor and wireless performance to be poor for games like CS:GO. I know many pros now use the G Pro Wireless so the technology seems to finally be at the right place. The one annoying flaw is the need for batteries though I can understand it at its price point. I think its a better choice than getting a super light mouse like the Glorious Model O/O- and have to be annoyed with cables which never end up sitting just right even with a bungee in my experience. My current setup is a old Zowie EC2-A for gaming and Logitech G502 Proteus for everything else.
  6. 6+ years is good for Logitech and that's probably on the low/unlucky end of things. I'd go with Logitech again I have not had a single peripheral from them break yet and I dunked my keyboard in water...twice.
  7. I've been writing about my grey screen crash (while doing anything) on both my old Dell S2240M 60Hz monitor and new 144Hz Acer GN246HL i also upgraded my GPU from a R9 280 to a RX 570 and swapped out the PSU from a old CX600 to a newer CX550M + a new case . It happened a lot on my old monitor using its own power brick after a couple years of owning it 5+ years. I upgraded to a 144Hz Acer panel and I used the power brick that came with it. I also upgraded my GPU thinking it might have been the main issue since it was also old but guess I'l be able to reuse it for a future build no problem, same with my old PSU. Whenever the issue occurred I always had to restart my PC and tried unplugging the DVI-D connections on both ends as well with no go. Today I unplugged the power to the monitor and plugged it back in.. BAM everything is back to normal which is great since I won't have to reboot my PC anymore and mess up whatever i was doing at the time. The old power adapter from the Dell 60Hz had a higher rated output value compared to the one that came with the Acer 144Hz, should I try using that instead even though my old monitor still crashed?
  8. That's pretty good actually
  9. Here's a $320ish keep in mind taxes will also come into play. You can add a pretty solid GPU in the future like a RX 560, and a standard HDD for mass storage.

  10. Can't the APU alone run Fortnite though? I've seen some benchmarks and it looks like it can no problem with lower settings. OP could always upgrade to a better GPU as well in the future if he wants to run more demanding games.
  11. RIP anyone who is above 6 feet tall trying to get in the 3rd row lol.
  12. Back in High School i was trying to get my friends into PC gaming so i could build them a PC... Most stuck with what they got (at least they got steam) or went to consoles.
  13. I'm pretty much the opposite lol... Much better with hardware. Best way you can learn really is building one yourself and Paul's Hardware has some pretty good vids.
  14. Well the RX 580 was around $189 to start so a bit more but I should be fine with the 570 i don't do anything crazy or care about having my settings maxed out.
