    Sapphire R9 270 dual-x Temp issues need help urgently

    Electrically conductive (metallic) paste like Arctic Silver 5 is only sometimes not recommended because it's possible to short out components around the die if one isn't careful while applying, not because it doesn't thermally conduct very well, which it actually does. I have two of those cards and they both run ~60C in an average case while running Unigine Heaven/Valley benchmarks, using Arctic MX-4 which performs very similarly to Silver 5

    Replace dual channel ram with quad channel

    OP was asking about replacing the 2x kit with a 4x, not adding another 2 sticks.

    Replace dual channel ram with quad channel

    You'd lose performance, though may not be too noticeable, because of the timing difference alone. I'd say keep your RAM unless you need the capacity. Using four sticks with that CPU doesn't mean quad channel btw

    What was your first GPU?

    First was MX 4000, then 7150M, then 970 and R9 390. System in sig is the first one, still working condition but has sat unused for like 2 months now, ran OG CS pretty well.

    Pcie 4 on X570!?

    Crossfire for gaming? No, because bandwidth isn't the main issue, it's lack of dev support for a very small potential audience. Majority of gamers use a single low-mid range GPU.

    Best way to use the PS4 Controller for PC

    I only use DS4 for steam games, no need for extra programs as steam automatically detects it through a ~$15 usb bluetooth adapter i bought from walmart.

    RX570 4gb or RX580 8gb in 2019?

    While 'future proofing' isn't a thing, and that term should ideally go the way of the do-do, the 580 will obviously do better than the 570 and for longer. Helped a close friend of mine put a build together recently, and that XFX GTS version specifically runs pretty well and quiet in his build.

    UPDATED: AMD's GPU Shortage before Sale?

    I'm a little confused how some are saying that a byproduct of yields from a different SKU otherwise destined for the bin being re-purposed as a new product to be sold at any price nets a loss of revenue, especially without actually even looking at the company's financials. Makes more sense that even at a below production cost pricepoint, any money they make from this product is profit.
  9. The case seems to have like 2" of perforation close to the front right below the hard drive cage, which is under a PSU shroud. Not much cool air getting in through the shroud other than what the front fan is able to push under the shroud. https://www.aerocool.com.tw/en/chssis/pgs-v/cylon Sounds like the case is just too air starved then, unless there's something severely wrong with the card itself. If removing the side panel or front panel and doing a test run gives you significantly better temps, you know it's just the case.
  10. I didn't mean mounting on the top of the case, meant on the higher spots of the front. Should be possible to fit 3 total fans with radiator mounted to 2. If that's too much hassle though, the custom GPU fan curve with Afterburner should also help, though will add some noise depending how high the fans are sped up to keep temperatures down. That does also require some manual tweaking, but it's just sliding a couple points on a graph.
  11. Ahh ok so you do have front airflow but most is being used for an AIO for the CPU. If the radiator is using same size fans as the rear default (120mm) you could possibly arrange for the radiator fans to be mounted at the two higher spots with the radiator being closer to the CPU (called push configuration) and then the extra default fan on the bottom slot. Theoretically this should work, but also I don't have first hand experience with that case. Another option is to adjust the fan curve for the GPU fans. You can do this with MSI Afterburner software.
  12. If the default one is still placed at rear, that could be the reason. That case supports 3 front fans, though the front panel is fairly closed off and also doesn't include any fans besides the rear one. If you have an extra 120mm fan, try adding one at the front bottom/middle position. If not, try moving the rear fan.
  13. Above 84C is too hot, so it's throttling down freq to lower temps. What case is your system in? Case fans? Pic of layout?

    Would like a bigger case

    The DR4/Pro cooler will in fact not fit in the 011 Dynamic, will in the upcoming ROG version of it tho.

    Help me choose a case and CPU cooler for my build

    This can be said about any PSU really. A PSU being overkill for a build isn't necessarily a good thing. An EVGA G2 750W would be better suited and save money ($80USD at amazon rn). You're much more likely to hear other fan noise anyhow given the build will likely draw around 500W max after OC, unless you specifically choose silence oriented parts for everything else like case, case fans, cpu cooler, and ran a quiet fan curve for GPU or watercooled it as well.
