  1. GTX 1050 ti temperature and power limit

    I set up a fan curve but for some reason it did not really help. I was still getting 78c and around there. I think it could be my case, which has only one fan and that fan is not positioned near the GPU. My case does not have room for more fans either. Would getting a new case help? I am on a budget so any recommendations on cheap cases will be appreciated.
  2. GTX 1050 ti temperature and power limit

    I may sound like a noob but what does OP mean. I have had a look at the fan curve on MSI Afterburner and I will play some battlefield so see how it does.
  3. I have a GTX 1050 ti and I enjoy playing battlefield 1. My GPU hits 80c which I do not like. How could I solve this? Is it safe to decrease power limit so that temperatures will stay low?
  4. @BlueChinchillaEatingDorito Haha. Thanks for the help.
  5. It may be silly question but would a GTX 1050 ti work with an amd CPU?
  6. Moving to SSD

    @BlueChinchillaEatingDorito @MrDrWho13 @grimreeper132 Thanks so much! This helps me a lot and allows me to confidently contiue. I'm excited to use the ssd.
  7. Moving to SSD

    I am planning on buying an was as my old hard drive boots Windows really slowly and takes time launching applications. After 5 minutes, the pc seems so speed up. I want don't want to buy a code for Windows 10 so is there a way I could use my old Windows 10 which is activated to activate my new one as I won't need my old one anymore. I am aware I can skip the part where it asks for a serial code but I would rather not have the activate Windows watermark. I am new to this so there may be something I said that does not make much sense. Thanks in advance.
  8. i3 7100 or my older i5?

    @DocSwag i5 2320. @PCGuy_5960 I will do what you said. Thanks 👍
  9. I have an older i5 2***. Should I use it or go for an i3 7100. I am new to this and don't know if I will gain an increase in performance as the i3 has quite a higher clock speed.
  10. Need help with installing fan.

    @LoGiCalDrm Ok. My fan comes tomorrow so I'll find out then. Thanks for the help. 👍
  11. Need help with installing fan.

    @LoGiCalDrm Oh. Is there a way to adjust the fan speed in the bios or is that what the PWN was meant to allow? If it is loud and I am not gaming I may want to decrease the speed.

    @RollinLower @LoGiCalDrm I had a look on ebay and found the exact same fan as I was going to get but this one had PWM so I got it. This one has 4 pin.

    @RollinLower Thanks so much. Now I can happily buy the fan I might update with what happens when I get it .

    @RollinLower Thanks so much. I was slightly worried before. I am curious. What is PWN.
  15. I am a beginner and have had a gtx 1050 ti for a few months. I installed it into my dad's old rebuilt which had 8gb ram and a decent i5. I love it so far. I do have a concern though. It does hit 80c when playing games like battlefield 1 1080p high or medium or low. I was told i shouldn't worry about it as it is not dangerous but i still want to run cool. People on youtube got steady 60. My pc has no fans excluding the psu fan and the you fan. I think I should add a fan then. My case has space for a 80mm fan. I found one that looks good. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B002QVFN7G/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1506362667&sr=8-9&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=pc+fan&dpPl=1&dpID=41vQX4PVYSL&ref=plSrch I am not sure how it will get power from my motherboard though. The pictures i have attached show what I have for power. I was told this fan has a 3 pin and I can't find that. Is there another way of power or is there another good 80mm fan that could do the job. Sorry if I have said anything wrong because I am new.
