  1. Thought so Bugger Probably not LOL Thank you
  2. I have an i7 7700k and a Galax “Hall of Fame” GTX 1080 GPU. My current monitor is an ASUS 27” 1080p 144Hz. I play games such as Elder Scrolls, Assassins Creed and Witcher etc. All the research suggests that 1440p is the way to go, 144Hz, 27”, (I live in a 1 bedroom apartment so my PC desk is tiny so depth wise of the monitor stand has to be considered), G Sync and I would like it to be curved. All monitors I have seen have at least one element missing either no G Sync or they are not IPS or they are not 1440p or they are a flat screen. I really like the look of Asus’ https://www.asus.com/au/Monitors/ROG-SWIFT-PG27VQ/ but it’s a TN panel. Am I being too picky, as I sit right in front of the monitor? Is what I am looking for not available? Should I look at 4K? Is going from 144 FPS on a 1080p to 60 FPS on a 4k going to be an improvement or not? Is there still issues with Windows scaling with a 4K monitor? Any suggestions please.
  3. PWM or Voltage

    Just as I thought thank you for that info.
  4. PWM or Voltage

    Hi just complered my first waterbuild on a Auros Z270X Gaming 9 Mobo. I have an EK 140 res pump combo. It is a 4 pin PWM and powered by molex. I have connected it to the 4 pin header for a system fan/pump. In the bios for this header (6) I have a choice to set PWM or voltage I watched a youtube vid. and they suggested voltage but shouldnt I put the setting to PWM.
  5. reinstalling Windows 10

    Why would I do that when I have a copy. Do you think there might be something wrong with my retail version?
  6. reinstalling Windows 10

    Its a retail version I purchased and didn't have to do anything in January to make it bootable.
  7. reinstalling Windows 10

    Hi I am trying to reinstall windows 10 from my retail USB. I have disconnected the ssd's and the hdd from the motherboard by taking the SATA cables out of the drives themselves and keeping the cables connected to the motherboard. I am trying to reinstall to my M.2 drive which I did in January with no problems at all. I have recently had a problem with command prompt popping up and kicking me out of my games so I decided to do a reinstall. I pressed f12, and in the boot menu chose the USB with Windows 10 to boot from. Unfortunately it just goes through to my normal desktop and doesn't give me an option to reinstall. I am using a Z170 motherboard and fast boot is disabled. What am I doing wrong.

  9. White AIO water cooler.

  10. White AIO water cooler.

    I have watched a few videos on plasti-dip coolers and the rubber pipes don't seem to be to successful as it peels off. What type of other spray paint would you suggest?
  11. Hi I am slowly trying to build a white build. I am looking for a white AIO cooler for my i5 6600K 3.5 GHz OCed to only 4.1 GHz. I haven't really played around with OCing and not sure I will push my CPU any higher than this. Currently us Fractal Design S24 with no issues but would like to find a white one. I have found this ID Cooling IceKimo 120 http://www.idcooling.com/Product/detail/id/74/name/ICEKIMO 120W Just looking for any thoughts on the above cooler or any other ideas for a white cooler.
  12. Hi thanks for the info. I live in Australia so need to try and find one. Thanks again.
  13. Phanteks LED

    Hi there thanks for the info. I was looking at shortening the tape into a few shorter bits not the LED strip. I will give it a go and let you know.
  14. Hi just recieved my order of the corsair individually sleeved cables. But cant for the life of me figure out how to get the 24pin into the Corsair RM650i psu. I did check with my online retailer for compatability before the purchase and got the ok. The end that goes to psu has a 14 pin and a seperate 10pin. The psu has a 18 pin socket and a 10pin socket any ideas?
  15. Phanteks LED

    Hey I have the enthoo luxe and just purchased the phanteks 2m LED strip but found the adhesive strip falls off. I bought the 3m double sided mounting tape but this doesn't adhere to the back of the strip. Any suggestions. I was thinking of gluing the tape to the LED and cutting the tape into smaller pieces so its not in one long piece. What do you think?
