    Upgrade causing FPS drops

    It really depends on what your shooting for. More voltage will result in higher temps, as long as its keeping in the mid to lower 80c under load you should be good.
  2. This is a problem with some AIO coolers yes.
  3. Unplug the CPU power connector (4 or 8pin on near top left of the board) and see if it still turns on. You won't be able to access the BIOS or anything but it can gives clues towards whats wrong.

    Please help, I kinda screwed up....

    Something is defiantly damaged, but its hard to say to what extent and if it could lead to future issues.

    Upgrade causing FPS drops

    Look into an after market cooler with some thermal paste, they will give you better thermals on your CPU, and give you some room to overclock if you so choose.

    Looking for a new case

    I would just turn on the part filter for ATX Full Tower cases. Virtually any case in there should be able to fit your needs without much issue. These cases usually are much more expensive than your typically mid-size, even at the lowest prices (these star out at the lowest of $68.00 while mid-size come as low as $32.96) but will have good have good cable management options, and pretty of space to build in.
  7. Not really, the difference between being able to afford a dedicated GPU or having to go with a 2400G is going to be a pretty substantial difference when your in a tight budget. I would take a dedicated GPU over a 2400G if I have to drop the SSD any day, plus this thing is really only going to be able to work as a boot drive so it won't have a huge impact on actual games.

    Upgrade causing FPS drops

    I know you said theres no overheating in the components but what your describing sounds exactly like what someone may experience when there CPU has to throttle back from too much heat. I would try 2 or 3 monitoring softwares, and do a stress test on the CPU to see if you get consistent thermals across all 2 or 3 tests.
  9. If that's too much you could knock off some extra Euros buy going with a cheaper, but still well made motherboard.

  10. I would defiantly drop the SSD, get a cheaper case, and look into a lower PSU for price to free up some money for a better GPU. If you can push the budget up to $600 euro you can get the 570 which is a pretty good GPU at its price.

    This build need any improvements?

    Might end up hurting for storage depending on how many games you play.

    Building A New System. Should I retire my gtx970?

    1. I would avoid overclocking if sticking with stock cooler. You could buy an aftermarket cooler and be fine, you don't need a fancy water loop. 2. 970 will defiantly start to show its age even at 1080p. If it was a 980 it wouldn't be as bad but you'll wanna upgrade in the near future if you plan to go to 1440p or higher. 3.Not from what I see, except if your going to pay for a nice motherboard, why not just get an aftermarket cooler and overclock. 4. I'm not good with monitors, couldn't tell yah.
