    Is this a good build

    It’s pretty much my PC except I’m in a Fractal case and I don’t have 32GB of RAM. I also stepped up to a i5 8600 and stuck on an aftermarket cooler as the turbo boost doesn’t work well with a stock cooler.

    Cases with 3.1 gen 1 type C front connector?

    What do you plug into these ports? Are the cables male-male type C or something? Maybe I don’t know enough about type C...
  3. Discord server issues? Report it to them if that’s a possibility.

    Help deciding case

    I'm a big fan of Fractal Design cases, high quality and they have sound dampening so you have a quieter PC. Cable management is superb and airflow is unrestricted, they are just well designed.

    How many tabs do you have open?

    1-20 usually.

    My gaming pc

    I have an i5 8600 on air with an RX580 for 1080p gaming and I am very happy with it. I couldn’t afford to spend too much and I have some games that use the CPU a bit more so I chose for the 8600 over the 8400 for a few extra “clocks”. Very happy with it and it will do me for about 5 years or maybe more. I could always throw in a second hand coffeelake i7 one day to give it a little more life. I would consider my system future proof for my needs.

    INTJ, just did it with work. Its cool all the system designer people are INTJ, pretty much everyone fits their job and we have a wide range of types. Just shows our boss did a good job at assembling our team!

    Is this it? This is life?

    You have to make something of it. My weekly routine was get up 7am, play some PC games and go to work for 9, finish work then either go to golf or rugby practice. 2 nights each a week on weekdays so one night off. Weekends was rugby match and golf competition. Evenings finished with some PC gaming and weekends I didn't have matches or competitions I played PC games all day. I also cooked and ran a lot to keep fit. The less you do the less you can do, you have to do something to have the energy to do more of the body just goes into a cycle of doing less and less. Draft up a routine, make sure its achievable and then commit to it. Now I have a child and have MUCH less time I still jog 30k a week and do things, if not my body will just shut down into a cycle of work, netflix, sleep, work, repeat.

    Bottleneck question :)

    I planned the build, sorry for the edit but it is actually an 8600. The bottleneck is due to partly playing games that are CPU intensive so I plumped for the best speeds I could afford. Also it will server me better when I finally go to something above 1080p...

    Bottleneck question :)

    My RX 580 is too weak for my i5 8600, 19% bottleneck. Hope that helps

    Bent PC wire

    Just looking at the image I would be OK if that was mine. The image does not look too bad so if your not much different then i would say you are fine. I don't like tension, I would prefer a little slack and that can be done without it being noticeable.

    looking for 120/140mm outtake fan

    https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-A12x25-PWM-Premium-Quality-Quiet/dp/B07C5VG64V/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1547329455&sr=8-3&keywords=120mm+Noctua+NF-A12x25 These will be the ones to pick and give a noticeable difference, if your really serious I would break budget for these. Anything else will be a waste of money as you will likely not see a noticable difference. Even these only have 8CFM more and the biggest difference is pressure, which shouldnt be the main concern for airflow fans. The big benefit here is the reduced noise these fans boast!

    looking for 120/140mm outtake fan

    I have I have the SP version, very happy with it. It is better than some generic fans I have. I would rate them as mid tier, decent fans. I am not sure how much of a noticeable benefit you will notice unless you are OK with more noise.
