  1. I like it, seems like my kind of mod. Decrease fan speed but lowering temps is a successful mod, it's also fun to experiment. I used to spend time trying stuff like this back with my skylake i7-6700k system. I was always trying to improve airflow, I ended up turning my Thermaltake suppressor F31 into basically what I have now, the Fractal Design Meshify, by creating a mesh front panel mod and fitting 3x 140mm fans up front for intake, was a drastic improvement.
  2. I would look into Goodsync, you can plug in your external hard drive enclosure and us the software to sync the files between your computer and the external enclosure. I use this software with my external enclosure. https://www.goodsync.com/?gclid=CjwKCAiAws7uBRAkEiwAMlbZjnpWz7lgspGDtzYZKlOAEwlT9L1cAiJH7KBaff9CwkMIhzFCwAeBfRoCvFQQAvD_BwE This is the enclosure I am using: https://www.newegg.ca/p/0VN-0003-001A0?Item=9SIAAMW80N1376 All this said why not just get a single reliable and fast external hard drive? A Lacie hard drive would be perfect. Do you need that big of an external solution?
  3. Have your front fans as intake, top and back as exhaust. You can put the rad at the front or the recommended configuration is to have it at the top and exhausting the hot air.
  4. No setup required if you get a motherboard with Wi-Fi, just install the antenna. Unless you are looking at the low end of motherboards it typically makes more sense to get a board with Wi-FI built in. It usually costs about that same as well. If you ever need it then you have to buy a separate card that usually costs $25 plus and in my experience is never as good as a built it Wi-Fi card.
  5. Seems odd, G-sync monitor? What settings are turned on via nvida display settings?
  6. Ahhh so you aren't sure what your CPU boosts to under load? Either way monitoring your CPU and GPU under gaming would help. Is your 144Hz monitor 1080p or 1440p?
  7. Both are reputable manufacturers, so either is good.
  8. Yes at base, but it should turbo to 4.7GHz under load, especially when gaming. That is what I'm getting at, thus my question. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/126684/intel-core-i7-8700k-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-70-ghz.html
  9. Honestly 3200MHz is fine, yes 3600MHz will help a bit but if it's hurting the budget then just skip out on it. Not really going to hurt your performance in a detrimental way.
  10. CPU at 3.7GHz? Or do you mean 4.7GHz?
  11. That's fair, smaller cases are nice. I have an mATX system and ITX as well.
  12. They are different from factors though, gaming plus max is ATX, mortar max is mATX.
  13. The i9 9900ks is way over budget? OP is looking at the R5 3600. Either way for gaming it will be an upgrade over the 1231v3, and MSI motherboards are solid.
  14. FD Meshify is the best case of 10+ cases I have owned, easy to build in and great cable management.
