  1. Hi all. I have a pretty decent build in my Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 3.1 and I like it very much. I would like to mod it a bit to keep noise down, but PLEASE keep in mind my temperatures are FINE. 70C on GPU and 40-53C on CPU under load (game dependent). I have two Cougar Vortex 120mm fans, one intake, one exhaust. So in the picture there's only one, but there's two now. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553002 I mostly want a way to make that front panel A. more open B. have better airflow, maybe add a mesh filter of some sort and C. Avoid the bulge of front headers if I were to just completely remove the front plastic piece. Honestly, in the end, I just want it to be more unique. Note: I don't have easy access to 3D printing, CNC machines, etc., but I do have a plethora of hand tools and saws, dremels, etc.

    Upgrading gaming pc from 2013

    You would need to buy a 3rd generation or 4th generation i7 which should be cheap-ish. Also, search for an extra 4gb stick of RAM, you could find one on eBay cheap and you'd get noticeable performance increases. You would buy DDR3 RAM. The GTX 1050 will work in that motherboard too. In Recap: You need a 3rd/4th gen i5 or i7 I'd recommend an extra 4GB of DDR3 Memory And enjoy your gaming machine for your cousin.

    any help for my broken pc

    I guarantee it’s your PSU. Check out a new one by swapping it and then your problem will be solved. Order one online—if it’s not the solution return it, simple.

    Yes a good CPU upgrade to a 4 core would do well. Also upgrading that cars would be a plus.

    whats a good aircooler for a i5 8600k?

    I’m not saying it’s the best on the market but I have had a good experience and would recommend with performance, style, no Ram interface, and decent installation.

    I should have asked this before I posted my thoughts.

    I would spend a little less on the CPU cooler, go with a Hyper 212Evo or Cryorig H7–they do great for OCing. That processor wayyyy outweighs how strong that card is. The GTX 1050 is better matched with an i3 8100 or ryzen 3 1200. I highly suggest you change the GPU and aim for 16GB of ram if possible. Though I know you said it’s more expensive over there!

    Check out these awesome hydrodynamic bearing fans from cougar. No LEDs, anti vibration, long life, very quiet. <$15. https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16835553002

    H7 is awesome—and sometimes there’s no reason to spend 40euros for 3C less...

    Best HDD for gaming?

    I have had segate for a long time and have no issues. Though I highly trust WD too. Any 7200RPM drive in those brands will do you fine.

    Any reason not to buy a Corsair keyboard?

    Overall I have no problems with them but when I tried them all out I very much disliked the space at—important in gaming. Other than that they seem fine. The space bar was just super ridgid and weird.

    Should I just go IPS?

    I like my IPS but it seems that you are more visually knowing than me in your talks of it. I have no ghosting issues with 75hz freesync display. I like the IPS LED I have as it very friendly to the eye and has a Matt finish to the screen opposed to my old glossy monitor.

    GTX 1060 3Gb or 6gb?

    If you're playing 1440p or up you'd need the 6GB, if not, 3 would suffice, just know that if you ever upgrade your resolution you'll need to upgrade your card most likely. No matter what, you're overpaying to what price/performance used to be...but welcome to building this day in age. If you can hold off and get everything at once later, maybe you could pick up a new GPU if AMD or Nvidia launches something this summer!
