  1. Brilliant Cheers, Its not like I can see it but its just annoying knowing its the only fan spinning of the 3, god bless OCD lmao.
  2. Hello All, I have recently purchased an RTX 2070 Super for my build, however I have noticed when it reaches betwen 35-40 degrees (usually idling or under small loads) the Left Fan and ONLY the left fan starts spinning. I use the NZXT CAM software to monitor my components and it doesn't register the fan as having spun up on there. A similar thing happened with the Gigabyte GTX 1060 OC 3gb I had prior to my RTX 2070 Super where only one of the two fans would spin up under low or no load. I do not have any Overclocking software currently in place and have recently format the PC and installed the latest drivers from Nvidia GeForce Experience App. Any suggestions on why this might be happening would be appreciated. Kind Regards, Millsy
  3. What about the whole thing with AMD CPU's needing higher frequency Memory to function to their full potential?
  4. @Tristerin @Radium_Angel Thank you both for the advice I will take a look at some videos now. If it doesn’t make much of a difference then what is the point in spending money on upgrading RAM speed at all? Why not everyone just buy the cheaper 2400mhz stuff?
  5. Hello All, As promised, I am now looking to upgrade my RAM. I am looking to increase the speed of my RAM in a Hope to increase performance. (If it makes much of an effect at all) I Currently have G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory. I am looking for at least 16gb of RAM, must be DDR4 and be either RED or BLACK, or RGB. Clearance is not an issue as I am using watercooling. Rest of my PC Specs are below should anyone require them. Budget for this is roughly £100-£120. Amazon preferred as always but open to anywhere! All Suggestions are welcome! Case: NZXT - H710 Matte Black/Red Motherboard: ROG Z390-H Strix Gaming CPU: Intel - Core i5-9600k 3.7ghz RAM: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory GPU: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Windforce OC Video Card CPU Cooler: Corsair H100x AIO Water Cooler with Corsair SP120 PE 120mm x2 Case Fans: NZXT Aer F120 x3, Corsair SP120 PE Power Supply: Corsair RM650x HDD: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB SSD: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SSD Operating System: Windows - 10 64bit Cheers!

  6. Effectively yeah, so the first build is my well... my first build. Build 2.0 is a mix of parts installed and parts to be installed. ie: The CPU, Mobo and AIO have been installed already along with the additional case fans and the SSD. The RTX 2070 Super is yet to be installed, As Ideally despite my original post I don't want to spend more than £500 knowing they sold it for £480 before and it has been relisted for £500 on PC World so I am waiting for that to restock. I thought it best to include it as otherwise it wouldn't have an accurate watt read out. The case is soon to be ordered once the GPU has been along with the PSU and cables. (Then we ask about RAM)
  7. I feel like the RM650x Covers all of my needs so thank you very much for showing me PC world has them, I had no Idea! @seon123 is there anywhere that does sleeved cables for this that you can recommend? Preferably para-cord and relatively inexpensive? Metal combs would be nice too but obviously I expect to pay a premium if everything is to be met.
  8. Shhhh I'm not that clever haha Try Now: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Millsy_001/saved/#view=jLDF8d
  9. Hello All, I am looking to make an archive of parts over quarantine to purchase (Not all at once) so I can slowly upgrade my Rig. I have already addressed the GPU and decided to go for a RTX 2070 Super, The Case - A NZXT 710 and now we move onto PSU. (Next Week, RAM!) I am looking for something which will meet the following criteria: Must be: - Able to Capably power the PC with some headroom for future upgrades (RAM Mainly but maybe a second GPU, who knows) - Under £100 - Fully Modular - A Tier or above on the PSU Tier List: Would be Nice: - Reputable Manufacturer - Sold By Amazon cause who doesn't love Prime! I have had a look through the list so I do have some rough ideas for what I would like to get but I always like to ask opinions from those who have more knowledge on the matter. (Aka, I am known for messing it up and buying the wrong stuff) Below is what the build is so far including the new upgrades mentioned above. (Please Note the RAM and PSU are still the Current Builds Spec, and will be updated as I make my decisions) https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Millsy_001/saved/#view=jLDF8d Any thoughts would be appreciated as always! Thanks! Millsy PS: Do Sleeved Cables Plug Directly into the PSU or into the extensions???
  10. For some reason I didn't see that on my initial search but it meets all the boxes. Probably passed over it as the initial images look like it has no upper ventilation, or I got it confused with the H510 which only has upper cooling for a 120mm Rad. Prior to what I originally put I meant 240mm Rad not 120mm.
  11. Hello All, I am currently rocking a NZXT Source 530 and in the future once all of my components have been upgraded I would like to look into getting a new case. I have taken a brief look around on Amazon, Scan and the likes but can't seem to find anything that particularly fits the things I am looking for. I would like to know if anyone has any hidden gems that fit my criteria which I have listed below: Must Haves: - Tempered Glass Side Panel - Metal Chassis (Not a Fan of Plastic cases) - Mid/Full tower to fit an ATX Board - Room for a 240mm AIO Rad - Preferably Top Mounted - Can fit a Gigabyte RTX2070 Super with Tri-Fan cooling. Would be nice but not crucial: - Black/Red Colour Scheme - Known Brand like NZXT (I really like their cases) - Has at least two places for a 120mm rad to be mounted (In case I wish to cool the GPU in the future) If it is of any assistance I have left my specs below: PC Specifications Case: NZXT - Source 530 Motherboard: ROG Z390-H Strix Gaming CPU: Intel - Core i5-9600k 3.7ghz RAM: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory GPU: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Windforce OC Video Card (Soon to be a 2070 Super) CPU Cooler: Corsair H100x AIO Water Cooler with Corsair SP120 120mm x2 Case Fans: Corsair AF120 120mm Fans x2, Corsair SP120 120mm x2 Power Supply: Corsair - Builder 600W HDD: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB SSD: Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SSD Operating System: Windows - 10 64bit Thanks for your help!

  12. Is it true the "Super" Series is what the original RTX series was actually meant to be like before Nvidia realised they did a bad job?
  13. Don't worry, please read the above lol
  14. I retract this statement, I'd rather get a RTX 2070 which future proofs me for any AAA games and if I choose to upgrade my peripherals. If it is just black then it fits my build fine which this one does. Red lights aren't worth an sacrificing performance for. I got a contact at PC World so I might be able to get a 10% discount on top of the already low price of the GPU as well as a heads up next time they're in stock. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/components-upgrades/graphics-cards/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2070-super-8-gb-windforce-oc-graphics-card-10201364-pdt.html
  15. I like to play on max settings where possible at all times. Why Invest so much if you're going to play below 1080p.. 60hz or in my case 144hz. At that point you may as well consider buying a console. What is the best Benchmark to use for an overall systems test, rather than just CPU/GPU?
