    I'm assuming that last PC had a Socket 370 PIII or Celeron? Also, please tell me these were taken on a smartphone. They're blurry.

    Mine was the old slot style. And I'm thinking about getting a GTX 650 Ti and a Phenom II X4 925, so we'll be even, except I'll have 2GB of RAM.

    Again, you over-estimate how much dust he has/how much dust impacts cooling.

    I think you either over-estimate how much dust that guy has or over-estimate how dust impacts cooling. My old daily-turned-file-server got just as dusty looking when it was still the daily and the difference was negligible.
     
    Hell, my sister's PC makes that look pretty clean and hers only runs a few C hotter.

    Sounds a lot like either of the ACOs. It's hard to remember sometimes that I "only" have a 1050Ti in Origins yet it looks so good.

    Mine is that this obsession with borderless phones is completely idiotic, and that quite honestly the Stylo 4 and similar phones got it right. Reasonably sized sides, symmetric and reasonably small chins, no need for a pinhole, notch, asymmetric chins (why is this a thing???), or those godawful mechanized front cameras.

    I'm not really sure what high humidity has to do with playing into your fear of water cooling. It doesn't really impact water cooled systems... It's not like they get lower than ambient temps.
     
    Either way, uhhh congrats for finding out more airflow = better thermal performance?

    Yes but not THAT much better.
     
    If I were making this change I would go to a 3700x instead: there's a larger improvement over your 7700.

    Nicely done! I really hope I will be able to get that card, it's the smallest 2070S I know of, and even that is pretty much the biggest card I can fit in there. I could still go with Galax 2070, but I'd really like a Super card in there.

    Yep, second smallest, though still quite a bit more roomy than the USFF.
     
    Also I sure know that feeling, I was wanting Zotac's low-profile 1050Ti myself but absolutely nobody had one so I had to settle for the MSI model which was a bit unfortunate since the fans used on it aren't that great (Zotac's seemed to be a bit better in that regard). Oh well, nothing an old Sempron 145 stock cooler fan and twist ties couldn't fix. Same temps for far less noise? Sign me up.

    ripanotha2013og got a reaction from Saturn420 in Resolution on second monitor being extra funky despite being set to the correct one   
    Starting off with the primary display thing, that is kind of a fucky thing with Nvidia at least (can't remember how it was with AMD). On my 1050Ti I want to say the ports in order from 1 to 3 go DisplayPort, HDMI, and then DVI. So even though my main monitor is in fact DVI, my TV connected to DP ends up being the primary, so if I ever have to muck around before Windows starts I need to use it, which is rather annoying.
     
    Anyways, first stop would be playing around with your TV and checking for anything relating to overscan, PC mode, or game mode. Had a similar-ish issue on my dad's living room TV (an older RCA fwiw) and changing that HDMI ports' name it to game mode fixed the issue.
     
    Another thing that could help (even though it's not ideal) is messing with overscan in the Nvidia Control Panel. I believe this is the right area to do this kind of adjustment in, but I'm not able to check for myself since I don't have this issue obviously.

    PSU tier lists are rubbish,  They serve absolutely no purpose as far as quality goes.  you only need two categories, those with a less than 5% failure rate and those with a higher than 5%.  The rest are feature dependent and even then most of those features are not necessary for the average consumer.

    ripanotha2013og reacted to RejZoR in 890W vs 550W vacuum cleaners same price which one i buy?   
    These days, especially in Europe, lower power are actually better models because they have lower power consumption. To compensate raw wattage they perfected the turbines and many ~500W vacuum cleaners are so powerful they are lifting carpets. Something not even 2500W vacuum cleaners weren't doing before. From performance perspective, on hard floor, it doesn't even matter anymore. They are all so powerful from most basic ones to most expensive ones. Only carpets are where things still matter. But you don't have them anyway. It is weird though that Miele, at prices they are selling shit, they still use micro filters instead of HEPA. Most really crappy cheap vacuum cleaners from other brands have HEPA.

    Could be Windows being dumb seemingly as usual with file transfers, but could also be the drive handling cache in a really idiotic way.
