  1. TheAspiringNerd

    Need a new case suggestion for my latest upgrade

    Yes I saw that, however I have 3 140mm fans and all the 120mm fans I purchased will be going on my 360mm aio Was also debating on the C700p/m aswell as the Evolv X
  2. So I've seen a few cases whilst some of them looked great; they either didn't support the radiator size I needed, too expensive & didn't have USB C. I need something that has good airflow as I intend to install a 9900k as well as a 360mm AIO. I also don't want something plain/bland (USB C is a must). My budget max is around £200-240. Bit more details, I plan on installing a few Noctua fans on the case and replace the radiators fans with noctua fans too. Was originally looking at the Lian li O11 but I have a few 140mm fans and they are supported in the case. My full specs are a 9900K with a 2080 TI FTW so I will need something that has great airflow for maximum cooling.
  3. When I originally got this build ready I intended on SLI with the 1080, changed my mind and got a decent monitor instead.
  4. So just yesterday my GTX 1080 Died on me while I was doing an essay. I've sent off my RMA request and now just waiting on what EVGA responded with, its also my birthday coming up in a few weeks and I've decided that I've wanted to make some slight modern upgrades to my PC, preferably in the motherboard,case & CPU Cooler department, my main this is that I want so more modern features on my pc (m.2 support, type C connection) hell my pc doesn't even have a Bluetooth or WiFi adapter built in. Here are my current specs I'll be getting £300 around my birthday and some more later one.

  5. Oh ok, I'm leaning more towards the NH-D15S now, while I would have prefered the double fan version but that would mean a whole new case just to get it to fit. I wanted to use the optical on my astros since I no longer have a console they are just gathering dust.
  6. Im thinking about getting the NZXT ones, are they reliable?
  7. How do these AIO sets work? can you get non-water ones? also how much liquid is in them?
  8. Well mainly because I originally got it becasue I was intending on doing SLI however I don't see that in my future so I had just gotten the decently priced board for what I originally wanted to do. Now I have some more money saved I wanted to upgrade stuff in my PC, mainly the fans but I wanted to change the board too to something that is newer. In terms of cooling I dont trust myself much with Water cooling. The hyper 212 is good but I don't feel like its doing a good enough job plus it is pretty loud.
  9. So I want a new motherboard, preferablky something a lot more recent and that has an optical output on it. Also I need a new CPU cooler but I have no Idea what to get.
