    Gpu under ₹12000 ($161)

    https://in.pcpartpicker.com/product/G3H48d/zotac-geforce-gtx-1050-2gb-mini-video-card-zt-p10500a-10l this one but it's not good for gaming or anything but India has a huge used market I believe maybe you can find a used 1070 for that amount.

    Is 6/8 memory slots occupied bad?

    you can still use quad channel. I'm using 3x8 now and I can use dual channel I have no reason to suspect that on quad channel this would be different.

    DisplayPort Cable for 1440p 165hz

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200851 I'm sure this cable is up to the job. I have used their dp to HDMI adapter and it works super good.

  6. I would go with the cheaper one my polish isn't that good but I believe I don't see the core clocks and memory clocks.
  7. o oke your from Denmark. then I would suggest a mercury 360 (RGB) aio. what most people are saying about your CPU/GPU bottleneck isn't true an i5-8600k OC will work fine with a 1080ti. my little brother is running an i5-8600k with a strix 1080ti and it just works fine even in CPU intensive games like GTA V, just cause 3, assassins creed syndicate and Metro: Last Light.
  8. technically you're a bit behind the facts as of 2010 ASRock is not from Asustek anymore it is owned by Pegatron.

    aio recommendations ryzen 5 1600?

    yea I see you have experience with AIO's, a 280 probably won't fit as 280 AIO's have a 2 or 3 cm reservoir on top of the rad. so they most likely will interfere with the buttons on top or simply won't fit. not were the op asked for. you said that an air cooler like the NH-D15 would be all that better, and yea it could dissipate around the same heat as a 240mm AIO, but then you must hold in consideration the ram hight the case thickness and were the first pci slot is. and I don't know what it will do but it just doesn't feel good to hanging 1,32kg on a MOBO. also, you said "someone who knows anything about PC's can recognise and appreciate even a cooler like the NH-D15" so here is my question for you do you think those same guys can't appreciate an AIO?

    aio recommendations ryzen 5 1600?

    no, a 240mm rad is the max for the s340 the fractal case u mentioned has 360mm support. kraken x62 is too expensive in my opinion if you look to the European market a mercury 240 RGB from Antec would be €100 - €110 a Kraken x62 will cost €140 - €180 euro and there are in essentially the same cooler. the corsair h110 v2 I have heard lots of negative storeys about the ones I have heard were that the including brackets would bend to easily or would break off while screwing the cooler into place, or that the pump would die a month after the warranty has expired.

    aio recommendations ryzen 5 1600?

    fractal design celsius s24 would be good enough I believe if you want to get the best you could use the other case with the s36.

    more fluid is not always better, because then you would need a better pump to make the fluid travel as quickly as possible and that's better in the long term.

    aio recommendations ryzen 5 1600?

    oke and where are you from?
  15. ricksteendam1

    aio recommendations ryzen 5 1600?

    which case are u using (or wich rad does it support). most aio's don't need a new fluid now and then, that's only in custom loops.
