  1. Hi I have a fractal design define xl r2 It comes with 3 140mm fans. I have put 2 at the front for intake, one at the rear for exhaust. Would it be a good idea to take a spare 120mm as bottom intake? I am air cooling a 8700k and 1070 Thanks for your advice
  2. Woops I checked the wrong one. Yes the 8700 is still pretty expensive but I'll see what price it is when its back in stock at my local shop Cheers
  3. i did consider it but it's quite expensive here at the moment ($730) - i was thinking if i went with coffee lake i could upgrade to it later
  4. Only just - not much airflow hence the water cooled option
  5. if you right click on your volume button (bottom right) select 'volume mixer'. You can allocate programs to different outputs and adjust volume individually Here is a better explanation if needed: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/b1d1acac-1f21-4d23-8d68-98964d67c2c7/assigning-an-application-to-different-sound-outputs?forum=w7itprogeneral
  6. In all honesty I just picked it because it looked better Is the 1600X a reasonable match for a 1080ti? (I'm looking to use a water-cooled 1080ti in the same build)
  7. that was just the first 1440p build that showed up on pcpartpicker
  8. Is there any specific reason for that? Like is it blindingly obvious and I just don't know? Thanks though
  9. Here is a parts list to get you started - you can swap components out for things that you prefer or are cheaper - then post the new list and somebody will likely review it for you https://pcpartpicker.com/list/XH2Pd6
  10. Hi all I'm doing a build in the Phanteks Evolv Shift - Which requires a Mini ITX motherboard Currently, I have a Ryzen 5 1600X - I can get this motherboard for about $365 https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/product/QKJkcf/asus-rog-strix-x370-i-gaming-mini-itx-am4-motherboard-rog-strix-x370-i-gaming Alternatively, I could get a Coffee Lake chip (Either the i3 8350K or the 8600K - $300 and $435 respectively) and this motherboard for about $385 https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/product/VRjWGX/asus-rog-strix-z370-i-gaming-mini-itx-lga1151-motherboard-strix-z370-i-gaming What are your thoughts on the value of each option? At the moment the only upgradeability on the AM4 is to the 1800X which isn't a huge improvement for gaming and light photoshop. Is the intel path with a large lineup of chips worht the upgrade for someone trying to get all the bang for the smallest amount of buck? Cheers
  11. Hi All I'm looking to purchase the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID card. However, as I'm using a PHANTEKS EVOLV SHIFT, And already have the H55 AIO cooler from corsair installed, the gpu radiator needs to be 27mm high or less. I know that some other hybrid cards use h55 coolers, such as MSI's version - just wondering if anybody knows which cooler this card uses, or if it's a proprietary design - what height the radiator is? Many thanks!
  12. You can only use two of the hard drives tho... The M.2 slot disables 2 of 4 SATA ports
  13. Those were my thoughts too. Ok thanks for that - I'll get the slightly more powerful one and see how it goes
  14. If you take a look at the top link I posted, that card requires a 9pin connector. The lower one doesn't. Thanks tho
