  1. I'm looking for a tenkeyless MX Brown keyboard, basically a corsair k65 LUX with brown switches, anyone know any keyboard like that I can buy only thing is it has to be amazon because I've got some balance to get a keyboard budget is around £100



  2. I got a 1070ti and I wouldn't swap for a 2060 because imo raytracing and dlss doesn't matter to me and a 1070ti got extra 2gb vram which will be more useful than raytracing and dlss 

  3. So I was replacing the thermal paste on my GPU to reduce temps and dropped the cooler on the die/core, it's got a tiny tiny chip on the edge of the die/core, honestly hardly noticeable, the gpu still works fine (temps better than before replacing thermal paste) in games no artifacts or wierd stuff and it also passes benchmarks with no issues (max 65c 1070ti) 


    If it all just works will it be fine?


    Thanks in advance.

    Install the fans first. Then install the PSU and pre-route your cables for exactly what you need. Space is going to be tight, and this'll make it easier to work with while you still have as much room as possible.


    The motherboard should be second to last, with all of what you can install in it already installed (do not install the video card). Then install the motherboard and plug everything in. The video card should be the last thing to plug in.

    Thanks for the tips, I'll be sure to use them!

    Everything is new in this list except the graphics card (prices are what I paid) opinions? Should be exceptionally great for 1080p gaming! (Please note I've already got a 480GB SSD for Windows + software and a 1tb HDD for games

    Can you please explain what you mean? Auto and manual controls are two options for mobo controlled. And it depends on which mobo how they will work and with what fans.


    The linked fans are PWM with RGB done with remote control vs using mobo for it.

    like so the mobo can auto control the fan speed on the linked one it cant all controller, how I control the rgb doesn't matter

    Definitely looks like someone's been handling it with oily fingers. Maybe you could clean it? Sounds like it'd be worth checking the thermal paste either way

    I'm just returning it CBA opening it up, not too good at that type of stuff probably would break it.

    Is it possible you got it out of the box cold? Sometimes condensation doesn't form evenly when there's finger oil or something else on it, which may happen when they took it apart for a repaste. 
    It'd just boot and test it. 

    Ive tested it and gets really hot to the touch idle
