  1. Just to comment and add to WoodenMarker's suggestions I have a Gigabyte Z390 Master and a NH-D15S, works great and no clearance issues. Previously I had a NH-U12A but wasn't thrilled with the perf for the $20 premium. Exchanged it for the D15S and imo it has a better sound profile and I noticed slightly better temps. I recently ditched a custom loop and went back to air and I gotta say the D15/D15S is a really good product and highly recommended.
  2. I didn't leave PC gaming but I did recently get back into console gaming. Platform exclusives are unfortunately a thing..... I found myself in this like black hole of going years only playing the same online PC games for years (Destiny, WoW, Diablo). I realized I was missing out on tons of good games and that was when I started looking back at single player experiences and Sony's line up of console exclusives caught my eye. Ended up buying a PS4 Pro and playing God of War, Uncharted 4, The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, and was just really blown away. I felt like I rediscovered something in gaming I had lost and it has really been great. It lead me to go buy a One X and I had a blast playing Gears 5 on it...and now I am replaying it on PC too haha. I think I entered a phase where I have come back around to loving single player games and the stories they tell. I'm 35 and have been gaming since....god idk NES days I guess and if I've learned anything from all those years of gaming is that your tastes will change and it is silly to let some platform war get in the way of a you having a good time.
  3. I use a commander pro for my case fans and fans on my gpu (morpheus II) which is a mix of Noctua Chromax fans and LL140's. For my NHU12A I use the motherboard header. Overall I've been pretty happy with the commander pro. It had some kinks in the beginning with software and I had to RMA it once cause it died randomly but all in all it is a solid product. Previously when I had watercooling I used a swiftech 8x pwm fan hub connected to my motherboard fan header and used the bios fan curve to control it.
  4. I have the NH-U12A, pretty good cooler. You could could look into the NH-D15S which has better ram clearance that the regular NH-D15, it only uses one fan but still performs very well. the "S" has a different heatsink design.
  5. Incredible build. Well done!
  6. Weird code name, also weird to draw such an assumption from such a small bit of info but that is wccftech for you. I won't be shocked if they do a 2080 Ti Super, NV seems to only care about releasing new sku's not if those sku's make any sense or not. Typical marginal gain refresh game we've all been playing the last few generations now...from both brands.
  7. Really impressive launch, I hope this shakes the market up as big as we all hoped so things change. Def interested in seeing more about overclocking...derbauer's video was very interesting.
  8. I like them being overbuilt and lately Gigabyte has been making some fantastic boards. I love my Aorus Z370 Master. If I were to build an X570 based system it'd def be with one of their new boards. ...now if they could just make better software....
  9. Sorry if this has been answered, I googled but didn't find a clear answer. Is this 10c/20t part to use existing Z390 hardware? Or is this another new chip/new board kinda thing?
  10. Haha well, it has coil whine under load. I had to take the case panel off to hear it and get my ear about 10 inches away but I definitely hear electrical noise coming from my 2080 Ti while under load. With my case panel on I do not hear it. I hear my D5 pump over everything else. I hope this helps and I wish you good luck on a solution. As someone who is sensitive to noise and suffers from tinnitus.... I get it.
  11. I have a pretty silent custom loop system. I haven't heard any electrical noise from my eVGA 2080 Ti Black. I'll double check again tonight and post back.
  12. btw in regards to the windows store: I did this and it works.
  13. Bored at work, decided to remote into my desktop at home via chrome remote desktop and bench it.
  14. Looks like Bitspower fittings. I like the cpu blocks, gpu block....eh.
