  1. Budget Gaming PC

    How about a refurbished i5 optiplex and a gtx1050? Under 500 for sure with a little elbow grease from you to install the GPU.
  2. stupid minesweeper jokes

    Can it run pong, Bro???
  3. My Grandma's Computer

    Go Pentium and ditch the GPU, then you can do the 8GB Granny will need.
  4. Asus are giving us x3 WS/server X299 mobos

    Can we haz TR4 WS Plz.....?
  5. SLI Cooling (Blower vs fan cooler)

    I tried this experiment with 2 970s. One MSI 4gd5t and one palit blower style. I swapped them to see if there was a difference. Bottom line, the blower style was always hotter and louder. Airflow through the case made more of a difference than the card layout. 2 fans is better than one. Custom fan tuning will play more of a role in controlling teh card temps than their PCI slot position.
  6. NH-D15 vs (Any AIO)

    A noctua cooler, yes. The D14 or D15, no.
  7. NH-D15 vs (Any AIO)

    Yes, I believe the 8700K will be the best option for games at the moment. The 1GHZ speed and IPC difference is pretty big despite being down 2 cores. As everyone here has said, there are AIOs that will perform with the D15, but they will be more money and take up one side of your case.
  8. NH-D15 vs (Any AIO)

    I have a 7700K on a D15 at 4.8 GHZ. Not super aggressive, but still HOT. I returned a H110 after trying to get it to perform as well and as quiet as the D15. I would say it is as good as an AIO and quieter.
  9. Good Ram?

    Do you have 2 4gb sticks now? If you only have one 8gb stick just buy another.
  10. New Build for Gaming

    This will be at 1080p yes? Looks good to me. Both the CPU and GPU can be overclocked to push a little more FPS, though the CPU cooler will be the limiter.
  11. So can we start telling people to 'wait for CLS (Coffeelake S)' now?
  12. Silentwings 3 on radiators

    These and Noctua's line up are the fans I have used. Both great, both quiet and yes can be used in push pull effectively.
  13. Will I have RAM clearance for NH-D15? (Fractal R5)

    It looks like his IO might interfere on the other side. It's going to be a tight fit. I say just buy it, try it and return it for the AIO of your choice if it doesn't fit. Amazon/NewEgg/whoever will take it back.
  14. Will I have RAM clearance for NH-D15? (Fractal R5)

    Yes, it does. 4 (2 for each fan) I believe.
  15. Will I have RAM clearance for NH-D15? (Fractal R5)

    Noctua's wire mounts will let you mount he fan almost halfway up the cooler, so if you are willing to do this it will fit. I have a delidded 7700K that is overclocked and I returned a H110 (280mm) for the D15. It is a more effective and quieter cooler in my opinion. If you are considering the h100 I would be cautious.
