  1. Those cards are so similar that it comes down to price. If the cards are priced the same or very close (like 10.- to 20.- CHF) then I'd go with the 2070, if the 2060Super is significantly cheaper then go with that one.
  2. The boost should be the same on both processors, the 9300hf to have a 4.1ghz multi core boost is very unlikely. The actual difference between those processors is that the 9300hf does not have integrated graphics, while the 9300h has a graphics processor integrated in the cpu. But considering that the Y540 is a gaming laptop with a seperate GPU anyway I don't know if that really makes a difference.
  3. Yes those nobs are attached to the plate. Now they do cover up the actual heatpipes but without the plate with the nobs on it the cooler should be a few mm shorter. This is the cooler without the plate and the nobs Do you see those nobs at the top above the middle fan? I think when those are gone you should have a few more mm to work with
  4. While I wouldn't recommend grinding those things off, you can remove the whole plate they are on by unscrewing the 4 screws in the corners, making the cooler lose a few mm of height without damaging it
  5. Also your monitor has 2 HDMI ports. One of those is HDMI 1.4, make sure you are connected to the HDMI 2.0 port on your monitor.
  6. A 570 is up to 50% faster. And with him being able to get one for the same price as he can sell his 1050ti for, I don't see how that's not worth it. He doesn't pay anything extra for 50% more performance.
  7. 450 Watts is enough for cards up to 200W easily, even 250W would work if your CPU isn't that power hungry.
  8. Try removing the Memory Overclock and test again. Such a high memory overclock can actually make the card perform worse. Also try lowering the GPU clock to see if that helps. Unstable overclocks can make the card misbehave.
  9. To improve streaming performance you should use the "NVEC" encoder as an encoder option instead of H.264. It uses way less CPU performance while having the same quality.

  11. You mentioned streaming, is your CPU at 100% only when you are streaming, or also when you are not streaming?
  12. These two GPUs are so similar that it doesn't matter which one you get. Just choose the one that's cheaper while still having a decent cooler.
  13. Technically it's the same socket, but the pin layout is different. 100 series chipsets like your z170 pro gaming only support 6000 and 7000 processors
  14. Overclocking a 2060 pushes it past Vega 64 performance, especially at 1080p and a bit at 1440p
  15. The Vega 64 isn't even that much faster than a 2060, mostly only pulls a bit ahead at 4k. I wouldn't go for a card that draws almost double the power and produces so much heat for 5-10% more performance.
