    Should I replace my Hyper 212?

    It's a simple thing to do while you clean your PC and doesn't cost much, so, what's the real problem? We're talking about enthusiasts here, not office computers. Anyways, you can keep the paste as long as you wish, I'll change it as soon as I think my temps are going up, but I haven't had my desktop long enough to change my paste yet, so I don't have a good answer. The guy said he replaces it regularly, so better do it every year instead of every 3 months or whatever.

    GPU buying help needed

    Hmm, so you can buy a DVI DL to DP adapter then. And as @LukeSavenije said, if you care about money, the Vega 64 is pretty damn cheap atm, plus free games and freesync support, which will save you quite a lot of money in your monitor upgrade.

About headset, mouse and keyboard, that's kind of personal. I like Corsair, but you can go higher end in the headset area with Sennheiser.

    Unstable and low fps on maby Beast pc?

    Yes. But I would also recommend getting a better CPU, maybe wait for the third gen and get a Ryzen 5 3xxx and a decent board, avoid Ax20 at all cost, go with a Bx50.

    GPU buying help needed

    Well, you can just buy a VGA or DVI dual-link to DP adapter. If you can find one that fits your needs, I would go with the 2070 for sure.

    i7-8750H one core overheating?

    Damn, that's a quite big core to core delta, but oh well, that's silicon lottery at it's finest. I don't think it matters much, specially for a low power CPU. Higher temps cause more degradation, but nothing that will affect you, so maybe try putting better thermal paste to help this core, but other than that, there's nothing you can do, and you don't really need to worry.

    The Cake is a Lie - Water Cooled Portal PC

    If you plan on hammering this i9, I think your MOBOs VRM will be a problem, Asus haven't done a good VRM in a while, just warning you if it's still in time to trade for a Gigabyte or MSI. If I'm not mistaken, this is a mere 4 phase VRM. Other than that, insane build, buddy, congrats! And good luck with it!

    First PC Build (Advice Appreciated)

    Looks great to me, but I would consider a second gen Ryzen 5 if you don't do work on the PC and if it's about the same price, so you have the same gaming performance and a not-first-gen mobo, otherwise, this is great.

    Should I replace my Hyper 212?

    You just have to change paste every year, the fans will last several years, and the heatsink itself, even more time. If the temps are fine, stop theorizing what could've possibly maybe gone wrong. I don't think that fluid easily evaporates, and AFAIK, air cooler's heatsink easily last over 10 years. If your new CPU is performing well and within acceptable temps, no need to worry either. You seem to want to buy it, so just do, but you don't need to.

    Upgrade - 700$

    My first thought, I was searching about it, and you simply can't find a better cooler for the price, you would have to go with a Vega 56 to get a decent cooler, not even a great one. But as you said, you can shave off a LOT of power consumption with undervolting, so it'll be fine. Also has potential for watercooling since it's reference, if OP wants to go crazy haha.

    Upgrade - 700$

    +1 for this build. As good as it'll get, plus free games.

    I7 8700k idle temp.

    Why are you worried about idle temps at all? It highly depends on your weather and a bit on what your MOBO is doing, some use more voltage than needed.

    Is this any good? Plz Help

    Yup, I thought they were more expensive, but just checked again. Changed to a 2080, thanks. Also a fair build, but I would avoid FE GPUs, lol.
  14. Nope. I myself use RAM from 3 different kits, but same model and speeds, so no issue. Even if it's different models and speeds, it'll just run at the lowest speed out of all sticks.
  15. 1 - Get an SSD; 2 - Look for the cheapest i7 from third our fourth gen; 3 - Look for an used GTX 970 or something like that; 4 - Enjoy.
