  1. I was only considering liquid metal cause I thought it might be safe on a GPU, as for GPU thermal pads, can you link me some because I've been having trouble finding any at all whenever I search for them. thanks
  2. So I'm removing the water block off of my GTX 1080 Ti and re-installing the air cooler and I need some thermal Pads. What're the best thermal pads to use for this case. And should I use liquid metal on the big main part of the GPU where you normally put thermal paste.
  3. So I'm turning my water cooled build into an air cooled build and was making a bunch of aesthetic changes and was wondering if you guys could help me out with something. I want to get a white or RGB backplate to go on my EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 graphics card that attaches with screws (not magnets) and was wondering what would be the best site to get it from. All help is much appreciated :).
  4. do you think a vertical GPU mount would be a good idea
  5. @dalekphalm @HOOTSMON Could you guys help me out with this
  6. I'm gonna be ripping out all my watercooling and moving my PC into another case for air cooling and I want some suggestions for airflow config. I'm going to be using the Lian Li O11 Dynamic and I know that I'm definitely going to have 3 intake on the bottom and 3 exhaust on the top, but I'm not sure about the side setup. So at first I was going to have a 360 AIO on the side and pull intake but I realized that my LL120 fans will be facing away which I don't want because the fans in that position are the most visible. Instead I'm deciding to do AIO and push exhaust on the side so that I could still have the AIO on the side and show the nice side of the fans. In THIS part of HardwareCanucks' "9 fans in O11 Dynamic" video, the difference between using exhaust and intake for the side AIO isn't much of a difference so I think this will be okay. Also, since the bottom fans of the case will be blowing straight into the GPU, would it be a smart decision to vertical mount the GPU so that the air could get past? Basically I want to know if my fan config idea is a good setup, and if vertical mounting would be a good idea here. All help is much appreciated :).
  7. what use cases would benefit from which drives? and how does the wd_black compare to the samsung drives? lastly, which would be the best for gaming and vr games? thanks for again for all the clarification
  8. so 970 is the newer line of samsung m.2, and what's the difference between the pro, evo, and plus? Thanks for the quick reply
  9. So I was browsing SSD options for a PC upgrade that I'm planning for this December and I realized that there are so many Samsung NVMe M.2 drive models with varying prices but I'm not sure what're the differences with all of them and I'm not sure how to find out what's best for me. Drives: Currently have - Samsung 960 Pro 512GB for OS, software, some files in Documents and Downloads, and a few important games. - Seagate BarraCuda Pro 7200RPM 4TB for everything else (mostly games). - Toshiba 7200RPM 1TB 2.5" that I got from my old Alienware laptop for storing movies and tv shows for Plex streaming. 1) I want to get another NVMe M.2 drive most likely from Samsung and I want to know the difference between the - Samsung 960 Pro - Samsung 970 Pro - Samsung 960 Evo - Samsung 970 Evo - Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2) where the WD_BLACK SN750 NVMe SSD stands 3) a good M.2 heatsink All help is appreciated :).
  10. i like tempered glass but it's just a little too much. Also shouldn't I put fans on the front, also since the gpu blows down EDIT: I keep using also and bad grammar cause im too lazy to formulate my thoughts lol, I don't actuall speak like that
  11. I really like the O11 Air so I'm sticking with that, but I have considered the O11D. And about the fans, I want to mount a maximum of 10 fans because I have to dedicate 2 to an aftermarket gpu cooler I'm getting and I want to use corsair fans so everything can be connected with corsair link using a commander pro (which takes 6 fans) so if I use 2 commander pros then I could use up to 12 fans, meaning 10 for the case after giving 2 to the gpu. I'm thinking of having the RAD on the side (back when you're looking into the case), fans at the front, and fans at the top. I just wanted to confirm would that be a good setup?
  12. I'm gonna be remove my custom hardline loop around this December and go back to air cooling and wanted to switch my case too. I was looking at high airflow cases and the one that interested me the most was the Cooler Master H500P Mesh, but the problem was that I wanted to use a 360mm AIO but it wouldn't be smart to put it on top and I didn't want to switch the front 200mm fans for it either. My current favorite is the Lian Li 011 Air, but it's also the reason I'm making this post. I'm really interested in this case but the problem is that it has a lot of fan spots which isn't a problem but I don't want to use all of them so I was wondering which fan spots are okay to leave fanless, and where would I mount the 360 aio. All help is much appreciated :).
  13. I probably won't need that much because I almost filled 1 TB just by adding movies and shows I don't have when I first used the drive, not by slowly adding them over time so I'm not gonna be adding as much
  14. Basically, I'm planning a bunch of changes for my PC and decided to also upgrade storage while I'm at it, but I have some questions about a few things. So I want to get a secondary SSD to put my small, highly used, or VR games on and an HDD to store media to host on Plex. For the SSD, after getting engaged in the PC world again after some time I found out that M.2s have become cheaper then they used to be and decided to go with an M.2. I chose the Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 500GB. It's recommended in many articles, I realllly love the aesthetics of it (which didn't influence my decision at all, I was just reallly happy with the aesthetic), and I could get a heatsink version which is a plus. The reason I'm unsure about the HDD is because I know that for NASes and Home Media Servers that you should be using NAS drives (WD red, SeaGate IronWolf, etc.) but I was going to be using this drive in a PC but dedicated to Plex. I'm pretty sure that that doesn't matter and that I should go with a NAS drive but I just want to be sure I was making the best decision. Also I want the HDD to be at least 2TB because my current 1TB Plex drive is REALLY close to reaching max capacity. And also I kind of want the NAS HDD I choose to be a great choice to put in a SOHO NAS later so that I when I actually get a SOHO NAS, like from Synology, I can just reuse the drive since I won't be using it in the PC if I switch to hosting on a NAS. I currently already have a Samsung 960PRO 512GB M.2 for boot, a Seagate BarraCuda Pro 4TB 7200 RPM as my other drive, and a 1TB 7200RPM Toshiba drive from my old alienware laptop that I use for Plex, I'm including current drive info in case it sways a decision in any way at all but probably not at all. All help is much appreciated :).
