  1. I think you are going to be fine with a 1060. A dirty way to look at your power consumption is to check on PC partpicker. Add all your components, check the consumption. Add 75-100W to it and you should have your power ratings. This is a dirty way that works for the most part. If you really want to dig in, then you'll have to check the power supply voltage rails and max current they can draw. If you need help with understanding that, look around on forum or you can DM me.
  2. I like my Fractal case and it is a good company to work with but here is a thing, do you care about RGB? If yes, you can probably buy a case with RGB and a fan controller for that amount (or a little more). GN and Jayz2cents have some decent videos about Fractal cases. S2 and R6 are pretty similar cases and Meshify is is meshed version of S2 (More airflow with slightly worse acoustics). At the end, it is going to be a lot more subjective depending on what you are looking for.
  3. Then why not go for a 8700K instead of 8700? You will be overclock 8700K in future if you run into a bottleneck in future.
  4. I just read official Youtube creator post, Verge is not going to get my click on their website
  5. No, just go with the splitter for now.Should be more than sufficient. If you decide to add more fan then use the hub.
  6. I think he is referring to that https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-System-Cables-Black-CPF04/dp/B00VNW556I/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1549902607&sr=1-4&keywords=fan+splitter
  7. Doesn't really matter. You won't hit safety current and even with two fans running at safety current, you are still well within spec for the MB connector. Go ahead and use a splitter.
  8. oh on the web link it said 0.16A safety current. Safety current for a motor is the current after which the Motor will start smoking/shut down (if there is a mechanism to cut off the current). You should be fine with two fans on one connector.
  9. You should be fine. Fan draws 0.16 A max current, so for 2 fans 0.32 A max. Your connector can handle up to 1 A
  10. Yep, that is my point. I did not learn everything in one day, you learn by doing it or failing to do it at some point. I have screwed up some things in past, when I look back they look stupid but stupid to "present" me (they would've looked stupid someone who had more knowledge). Again, I reiterate my point, you won't know things until you learn them. I don't care how small/stupid things look. If someone is trying to learn, I will do my best to help them out. I am actually glad that there is a place like LTT forum where people can discuss about these things and get the help they need.
  11. GPU stuck posts quite common though. People don't realize there is a tab to release it from slot.
  12. Great job! Glad you could get it out. Let us know if you have any other questions.
  13. Try to push those in, you can apply a little pressure (Just on the lower part of the metal plate) to push them and what @aisle9 said
  14. Yes, try to get it back in the slot (do NOT apply excessive force). After it is in the slot, unlock the tab and the GPU should come out without any issue
  15. You need to re-seat the card in slot and then unlock the tab
