    No, I meant that getting gaming cards that were used for mining can be risky. There's safe buyers, but its always a risk. The RX 570 and even the next card up, the rx 580, are both so cheap when brand new that they're within your budget. You obviously know the risks of buying used stuff, but GPU's can be iffy.

    Just buy new. A lot of the used gpus are AMD ones from mining and the thought of buying mining cards doesn't personally appeal to me. It's safer to buy new either way.

    Get the RX 570, it destroys the 1050 TI.
  6. Yeah it's a different boat for sure. Liquid metal actually does worse at lower temps than regular paste, so thats what the crazy overclockers use it and its also why it works well in laptops, which you've found out.
  7. You don't need to delid the CPU. That actually involves taking the metal cover off and changing pastes that directly touch the actual CPU. Don't do that on your first build, or until you feel comfortable doing it in the future. Liquid metal is for when you take the heat spreader (the metal cover with the writing, or the "lid") off. It does better at transferring heat then the standard paste that intel applies themselves. Also, the CPU you have is soldered between the heat spreader and the CPU so delidding would take longer. This video includes the 8700k (previous version of 9700k, it install the same) and same AIO that you have, so the installation of both parts will be in the video for you to see. This video should also should show you how to apply thermal paste. I don't recommend using the paste intel provides. You can use the paste that comes applied on the cooler or paste that you buy. If you use paste that you bought (not LM), then wipe the paste off the AIO since you don't want to mix them.

    Question about changing from w7 to w10

    Eh my PC could probably use the wipe so I think It'll be fine. What would I be backing up? Sorry I'm a little confused.

    Should i upgrade PSU for new CPU

    This CPU doesn't exist, so do you mean ryzen 5 2600 or ryzen 7 2700?
  10. Heyo, today I discovered that in order to use adaptive sync with my 1070ti and freesync monitor, I need to be on windows 10, but I'm on windows 7 right now. I happen to have a product key, so I'll be changing to windows 10. My only question is, when I change my OS will I lose all the data I have on my PC at the moment? I assumed so, but wasn't sure. Thanks.

    How good are my overclocks?

    Looks good, but whats the voltage at 4.1ghz?
  12. Ohhhh. I really don't want to move to 10. This PC still has my brother's old stuff on it so I can't change to 10 until then....
  13. If you're using that gtx 970 you won't be able to do it anyway.
  14. Thats what the reddit post says.. Fuck dude.
