  1. I've read there wasn't much point getting higher speed due to 7th gen limitation, Thanks for the cable management appreciation Btw the Doge Pringle pic is awesome
  2. Mobo i'll probably change out when i go up a couple of gens (or go amd) 2nd Person to say case with a basment (agreed it would look better) PSU i'm looking at right now as i've been educated I like the idea of storing more games on the m2 Gonna change the look of the AIO Thanks for the input
  3. Thanks, white tubing is a fab idea ! You know i've only just seen the crossed tubing now you've said that Sleeve extentions are definitely going on the list You're the 2nd person to inform me about the psu, looking at the Corsair RM550x as we speek Mobo i'll probably change out when i go up a couple of gens (or go amd) Thanks for the psu list
  4. I know it's all personal opionions, but what would you do to it ?
  5. Thanks again, this is why i came here, honest reviews and people who know
  6. Thanks for letting me know What would you recommend around the same wattage ?
  7. That's what i'm looking for, power is fine for me, just trying to figure out what to do to it to make it look even nicer, i like it but there's always more Btw All correctly tied up at the back Built it early last year, i did pay £345 for the cpu (that was back then) Thank you, i like it Thank you It was a sticker pack that came with the mobo i just trimmed it for the cooler
  8. Hi All Looking For Opinions On My Build CPU - i7 7700K @ 4900Mhz RAM - 16GB DDR4 T-Force Night Hawk RGB (3000 mhz dual channel) GPU - GTX 1080 Founders Edition (2025 mhz gpu / 4201 mhz mem) Mobo - Asus ROG Strix H270F SSD - Samsung 970 Evo 250GB Nvme (behind thermalright cooler) HDD - Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200 rpm PSU - Thermaltake Smart SE 730 W (87%) Cooler - Raijintek Triton 240mm AIO Case - Fractal Refine R4 Thanks
  9. Closing Thread. Replaced BIOS Chip And All Was Well Again
  10. Okay New Equipment Arrived A Few Days Ago And I Benched And Built It Yesterday. No Problems At All, So It Looks Like It Was My PSU Frying Mobo's And CPU's.
  11. Update, have ordered another mobo and a new thermaltake 700w modular psu, fingers crossed. Will report back after I've bench built it ?
  12. I've tried that thanks, they're both shot completely
  13. Yeah i have, they're both shot completely
  14. Hi, I Think My PSU Is Frying My Motherboards I Have An Evo Labs Cronus 850w 80+ Bronze Modular PSU I Was Running A Gigabyte PA-G55-USB3 Mobo For Years With No Problems, I Decided To Upgrade To An Msi Tomahawk Arctic H270 (1151). It Ran Fine For About An Hour Then My PC Hard Crashed And The Mobo Now Powers For A Split Second Then Immediatley Dies, I Thought I Just Had A Bad Mobo So I Purchased A Gigabyte B250-HD3P, All Was Working Well For About Half An Hour Then The Same Hard Shutdown Happened And Now Powers On For A Split Second Then Immediatley Dies, Just Like My Msi. So Is My PSU Bad ? Can It Appear To Be Working Properly But Frying My Mobo's ? I Just Don't Want To Keep Wasting Money Killing Boards. Ram - 1x8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000Mhz DDR4 Storage - Samsung 960 Evo 250GB M.2 SSD / Segate Baracuda 2TB HDD Case - Fractal Design Refine R5
  15. Hi Not Sure If Anyone Can Help Me Here. I Have Had A Bad BIOS Flash On My Asus P6T-SE Motherboard And Have Bricked It. Just Wondering If Anyone Has The Original Motherboard Disc They Could Send Me (i'll pay obviously) Or Could Rip The Disc And Send Me The Files. Thanks For Reading. :) :)
