  1. I would suggest a larger PSU, even if its estimated that it won't pull as many watts as the PSU is rated for. With a gtx 1080, and a AMD 1700 with all other components power consumption may rise due to heavier loads that whats expected, and a custom water cooling loop. I would look at something like 600-750W PSU's. I really doubt you'll hear the fan on the PSU if its running, it would be annoying to run into PC shutdowns or PSU over-drawing due to not having the power needed.

  2. From what I understand when Windows installs, it uses information from your motherboard, CPU, things like that to optimize itself. Last time I did a motherboard swap a reinstall was needed because Windows wasn't very happy with what I did, and decided not to allow it to boot from my OS drive. Do a backup and when you can do a reinstall, that's your best bet.

  3. I think the main reason would be that if it wasn't covered in plastic, it would expose the connections, leaving power shortages at a higher risk. And potentially manufacturing costs. Having it at a 90* angle would be so much better, I agree.  But people like FrozenCPU also make right angle connectors like these: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g51/c379/s1014/list/p1/Connectors-24_Pin_Connectors-24-Pin_90_Male-Page1.html

  4. Basically any NAS will work, you can purchase them without drives and with drives installed. As for using a SSD for cache (i might be wrong) to my knowledge that can kill SSD's, at least I had it happen to me, but it can be done but didn't make a large overall performance upgrade. 


    Gaming over a NAS? I feel that would have too large of a delay to get from the NAS to your PC, and add to the latency. It can be done but it's system dependant.

    Here's just a basic 2 pay NAS enclosure: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA10V3ZU6857&cm_re=nas_enclosure-_-0VN-000U-00008-_-Product

  5. Well it's a great phone, the early ones had a bad battery, obviously. But according to their website they now have a new battery installed, so IMO it's worth it, just make sure you get one with a new battery. 

  6. In my limited experience with m.2 drives, it's good because it takes up no space, and doesn't use any cables. I don't think you will see a huge increase in performance using it as an OS drive, more of clearing up space on your current SSD for more storage

  7. Go onto that account and open Task Manager, scroll down and find the program that is using the HDD the most. That should be able to tell you what's wrong with your PC. And if it is a bunch of programs that are using the HDD, it is likely that your HDD is going to/will eventually die.

  8. You may not be able to max out every one of those games with the R9 270x, but maybe medium to high settings, while still getting good FPS. Also depends at what resolution you are playing said games at.

  9. The 750TI and the CPU should be enough to get a solid 30FPS at high-ish settings. I am not too sure how demanding the game is, but the 750TI is a pretty powerful card.

  10. How much performance are we talking? This is more of a cosmetic change, not for performance, I do not overclock.

    Quite a bit temperature wise. The fan included is optimized for static pressure, good for using on radiators, where as the AF120's are for air flow, and not meant to push air through a radiator. If you want a Corsair fan on the Fury X's rad, get a SP120 to replace the Gentle Typhoon.

  11. I would like a more powerful card however, I have spent 4000 SEK (450$) for this gtx970 since i am in Sweden and spending more would probably be an issue unless it wasnt by much. Do you have any specific recommendation?

    Well, you could sell the card, and get the same GTX 970, but a different brand. Such as getting a Gigabyte windforce GTX 970, such as this one here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125684&cm_re=gtx_970-_-14-125-684-_-Product
