  1. With the top and rear as intake and the front exhaust through the rad it would result in a positive pressure environment, so air would tend toward exhausting out of any holes/gaps in the case rather than drawing air in. You're right though that front intake, top&rear exhaust it'll draw a little air in through those slots.
  2. You should really get aluminum bits to go with the rads (ek sells some) or if you're really set on mixing metals you can give this a good read through https://www.overclockers.com/pc-water-coolant-chemistry-part-ii/
  3. Due to it being direct die cooling you don't see as much of an improvement, and given the risks as others have mentioned it really doesn't make sense to use liquid metal on a gpu, with a good paste you're looking at maybe a 1ºC difference. The real use for LM on graphics cards is shorting shunts to get more power, but you probably don't want to do that unless you don't mind the card dying on you
  4. Ltt videos are great, they don't cover everything, so we go out to the others in the space
  5. it's usually better to buy everything together, prices tend to drop over time, as well as get updates that may affect what you want to purchase. That being said as others have stated for gaming only the 3600 is amazing, if you're doing real work then a higher core cpu makes good sense. Don't trade off to one of those Intel space heaters though
  6. My htpc gpu fan died and the sound stopped working, couldn't figure out the problem. Went to the mobo manufacturers website and when I got to the driver page suddenly everything started working fine... All I can recommend in light of computers clearly becoming self aware is that this is the last chance to ingratiate yourself to our soon to be robot overlords
  7. put the other three screws back in, tighten them down a bit, then try removing that screw again.
  8. your gpu doesn't have any fresh air to draw in, the rear/top intake don't get cool air under the gpu. As said flip your fans to front intake, top/rear exhaust, both cpu and gpu temps should improve
  9. https://www.gamersnexus.net/industry/3495-hw-news-ram-prices-dive-binned-ryzen-3000 "Looking at the binning and overclocks, it confirms what almost all reviews have already: limited headroom for manual overclocking" For precision boost behavior https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3491-explaining-precision-boost-overdrive-benchmarks-auto-oc that is yes with proper cooling you should expect consistent boost clocks, the colder you keep it, the better the clocks As for the memory stuff I don't have a quick easy link at the moment and I really need to go to bed, but it's the same reason you always wanted fast ram for ryzen with an added twist that going over 3800mhz is a real kick in the nads
  10. In the EU there's a mandatory 2 year warranty the seller has to provide on products sold to consumers within the EU. Beyond that there may be extended warranties and such that can be offered by whatever terms the seller/manufacturer decides. That 2 year warranty is good unless the seller can prove you caused the damage, historically signs of misuse or abuse are necessary for that.
  11. Not enforceable in the US, always best to check local right to repair laws but I'm pretty sure most of the EU also made those warranty void things unenforceable
  12. The way ryzen 3rd gen boosts overclocking is nearly pointless, their auto boosting behavior leaves very little room for improvement E: A better focus would be getting good ram able to hit 3733/3800mhz as that will provide a significant speed boost due to ryzens archetecture
  13. not sure how long you've had it, but sounds like the thermal paste isn't doing its job to me. You can replace it yourself pretty easily (GamersNexus has a teardown video) it's like 12 screws, if you're not comfortable replacing the paste of course you can rma it and they'll do it for you, it just means you'll be missing your graphics card for a couple weeks
  14. the black squares to the right of the LR22s and TR33 1916s
