    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to LIGISTX in Ryzen 3 3300x overheating   
    Where do you live? I ask because knowing the ambient temperature is helpful since as @TheDailyProcrastinator said, you posted about hot RAM as well... Is your CPU overclocked like your RAM?
     
    We need a lot more info.

    Considering you seem to have RAM and CPU heat issues, what is your case setup?

    No, VGA means GPU error, not VGA output. Either it's not detecting the card or you plugged the display cable to the wrong place.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to TVwazhere in looking for affordable super-tower   
    8 PCI-E slots for under $100?
     
    The Enthoo Pro or Enthoo Pro TG (as @TheDailyProcrastinator mentioned) would probably serve you pretty well. The Pro TG crosses the gap between "old super tower" and "New TG+PSU shroud"
     
    Rosewill also has the Rise Glow which looks to be more compact than the Pro TG in volume, seems like a lot of people have used these for server boards with Quad CPU sockets which is pretty cool, though at $109 price (at time of writing) it's not great value due to what I'd call visually poor construction quality for the price (especially compared to what you can get now at $100). Pre-Covid sale prices were $70-$80 which I think is fair given the construction quality and potential airflow of the case, and $50 Black Friday 2019 price was actually very good.

     
    The Skyline 06 isnt worth the asking price IMO, and the View 31 would be thermally outclassed by the Pro TG and Rise Glow's mesh fronts for F@H applications (24/7 continuous operation)

    The F31 suppressor does a good job of suppressing airflow lol (big shock I know), better if you leave the front door open though. I owned that case in the past. ironically the Phanteks Pro M was the case I upgraded to at the time, MUCH better airflow.

    This would be the better airflow option with 8-slots

    This is not true, In my experience a case can make a HUGE difference in thermals. And if this were not the case the Steve over at GN would not thrash case designs for poor airflow optimization.
     
    I have reduced temps by nearly 5-10 degrees C with my OC'd i7 8700k just by swapping cases and mounting my rad to the front of a mesh panel case.
     
    I would recommend a front mesh panel case, some of these may require the purchase of additional fans. But you do not need to spend $300.

    TheDailyProcrastinator got a reaction from Korben in NZXT H210(i) + Kraken X63? GPU length?   
    Might be a bit late here but H210 can hold a 280/240mm AIO with a push-pull fan config. However with fans placed in front of the rad/fan mount they are choked by the front panel and the dust filter cannot be used. 

    I am going to be modding my front panel though.
     
    With the rad and fan behind the mount the GPU length is limited to a standard 2 fan card, about 267mm.

    Very nice build. Just one suggestion, I would highly recommend placing the case on a piece of wood or at the very least cardboard, you will starve you PSU of air, which is not ideal.

    TheDailyProcrastinator reacted to Sorenson in My First Build in 15+ Years - Wanting Opinions   
    It looks great! The only two things I would consider are:
    eventually upgrading the cpu cooling if the stock fan is too noisy. Grabbing a cheap 128gb ssd to accelerate the HDD once AMD releases the updated storemi. (I think it’s coming later this month)

    Again, this was my first build in 15+ years. Took about 3 hours start to finish (including Windows install). Got POST on first attempt too! That made me proud. Had my 9 and 10 year old sons helping me with the install of pretty much everything in hopes to teach them that it is a process and hoping that they learn to care for it since they had a hand in building it. For those curious about the 500gb SSD and 2tb HDD combo, that came down to a price vs storage amount issue for me. Total after tax and shipping for all pieces was around $2,000 USD.

    TheDailyProcrastinator got a reaction from TofuHaroto in I heat damaged my graphic card, can it be fixed? Will it get even worse?   
    Yeah I mean no real long term concerns if you deal with it, the component do not need to be replaced but it likely requires new thermal paste, with time and heat it dries up. There are great tutorials online on how to do so, or if you are not comfortable a local PC shop can do it.

    For ultra settings 1440p a 2080S or 2080 Ti, but I would recommend waiting for next gen Nvidia cards to launch. I use a 1080 Ti (pretty well the 2070S equivalent) and get anywhere from 80-120FPS at 1440p ultra settings depending on the title. (Paired with an R7 3800x and 32GB of 3466MHZ memory)
