  1. I am planning to buy a Seagate Firecuda 2TB SSHD to be used as storage and also installation of games alongside a 850 EVO SSD. The SSD will be used for OS installation. I want to buy the SSHD as it has a 5 year warranty and all regular HDDs have only a two year warranty.These slow down with time and without the longer warranty if it fails it will be useless. Please people share your experiences and let me know if its a good decision. How do I format it for Windows 10 for storage purposes?
  2. Hi I am from India and am building a brand new gaming rig after 8 years..I am coming from a Core 2 Duo E8400, Radeon HD4770 . Here's my build: Intel i5-6600k Gigabyte Z170-D3H Cooler Master Hyper 212X Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming GTX 1070 Seagate Firecuda SSHD 2TB Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GBx2 2400Mhz Seasonic S12II-620W LG 24MP88HM (IPS and borderless...) Antec GX505 (Personally I love its look!!) I am gonna be gaming at 1080p 60 Hz ( This will increase the useful for keeping it GTX 1070 for the long run) at Ultra/High settings @ >=60 fps for the coming 4-5 years.This build may not seem much in USD but in INR (Indian Rupees) it is coming to around Rs 100000 which is me going above and beyond. I am not gonna overclocking early on but during the later stages. I wanted to know if GTX 1070 is good choice for upcoming DirectX 12 titles as I cant wait for whatever AMD Vega is offering.It will take probably another 6-8 months to reach India and the price will be way above GTX 1070. Please rate my build and its compatibility and let me know if there is any incompatibility or problem with the build and if the SMPS is more than enough at full load.
  3. Please let me know which one of the above is better for the long run. I saw that in comparison to the G1 gaming the Xtreme Gaming version due to its unique fan placement have provided a 8-9 C cooler at full load It is also very silent. It also provides an additional year of warranty after the usual 3 years. Is it worth the extra money? I am pairing this with the i5-6600 and a Seasonic Sii-620W PSU. Please suggest.
  4. I am really confused whether I should for the Intel i5-6600 (non-K) with b150 vs i5-6600k with z170 for gaming when paired with the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming GTX 1070. I will be primarily gaming @ 1080 for 50-60 fps atleast @ high settings for the coming 4-5 years ( I know GTX 1070 is overkill for 1080, but it will help me in futureproofing ).I am a complete noob in overclocking and dont know the intricacies of it and havent done it. I read that lot of researching, patience and understanding is needed for successfully manual overclocking without any damage and it is a trial and error method.I really dont have the time for it and saw in other forums that auto overclocking via the mobo software provided is not really recommended. When price is taken into account intel i5-6600 with b150 * Rs 16000+9000= Rs 25000) whereas the i5-6600k with z170 ( Rs 17000+13000+3000=Rs 33000) for an expensive stable board and an extra after market cooler for overclocking.I think this extra 8k will be better invested in the GPU and other parts. Is overclocking really give significant performance boosts down the line in gaming for the extra price. (Rs =Indian Rupees)Please correct me if I am wrong and am open to all suggestions. Will the non K 6600 reach 3.9 Ghz as advertised without overclocking?
