  1. I am going to be getting an RTX 2080 at christmas then a 1440p monitor in May... How ever my XL2411 only has DVI-D/ HDMI 1.2 or 1.4 and VGA.. I wanna be able to drive the monitor at 144hz as I have gotten used to it and it is really smooth... Is there any adapater capable of this? Is it possible the Type C Connection could be utilised? Links (preferably for UK sites) are appreciated

    Case Painting

    It wasn't available when I was getting a case. It was out of stock in most places so I got the SE.

    Would you suggest using Primer before applying the first coat of paint?
  5. I don't really mind pricing, I understand competition and all that stuff but I buy intel for the speed. Not just for gaming but for my 3D Renders. It all depends on the OP's usecase, after my troubles with Ryzen (Late 2017) I went back to Intel. It looks like the OP has money so could still go Intel.
  6. I would say an i7-8700k, I use mine for gaming at 1080p 144hz with my 1070 and every thing runs smooth.

    What is the best way to paint the white interior of my Enthoo Pro M SE to make it black?
  8. So Microsoft has quckly lost me as a customer and I am looking to switch to Linux. I have heard that gaming is a lot better on Linux now compared to previous years. As a complete newb to Linux is there any site/you tuber that is easy for a beginner to understand? And one that walks through the set up processes etc. Thanks.

    Slow/Abnormal SSHD behaviour?

    I bought a FX503VM in July and a 1TB SSHD from Seagate to go along with the laptops 256GB of storage. When I try to download games in speed there appears to be a good period of downloading on my colleges wifi at about 20MBs in steam. My Drive will be at about 23MB usage. My drive response time in Task Manager sky rockets upto a few hundred Mili seconds and my Disk Usage declines to a few MB/s. This affects my download speed and drops it down from the High teens low 20's to about 3MB/s. Is this normal? I don't think I experienced anything like this with my Toshiba HDD at home. I attached a few screenshots

    High temperature on 8700k all of a sudden

    It was showing it running at 2930 RPM last night when I first noticed the issue. That was in Link.

    Yeah it's not much it's only 4.8Ghz/1.33V.

    High temperature on 8700k all of a sudden

    Well I unscrewed it before going to college this morning. I use Artic MX-4 which has been getting great reviews. I haven't touched my BIOS settings for months. I thought maybe it was sending the wrong voltage but nope. Like I said the pump must be working as when I touch the tubes it feels like a vibrating which I assume is the pump.

    High temperature on 8700k all of a sudden

    I'm welsh. It's usually cold. Hot summers etc. It's usually about 16c outside and the heating is sometimes on. I have the heating in my room off. Don't open the window a lot due to allergies but when I do my fan is on blowing cold ass air in. Still though I don't understand why it has been running fine for weeks and I could get a 5.4Ghz OC without it reaching 90c. Now 4.8Ghz is reaching 100c instantly.

    High temperature on 8700k all of a sudden

    When I would run stress tests before at 4.8Ghz I'd reach maybe 75c on a stress test and about 70 while gaming. I'm not home atm to check corsair link. My room is usually warm as the sun is on it most of the day and I have a Founders Card dumping heat into the room.
