    Are you thermal throttling? Have you tried turning the game to 1080p instead of 4k? All my laptops have always been pretty hot for the processor and can't run newer games super well.

Also Micro Center was the best and worst thing to find. It is such a good store with employees who are passionate and actually want to help. It hurts my wallet though.. lol
  3. https://www.microcenter.com/product/478859/xf270hu-27-wqhd-144hz-dvi-hdmi-dp-freesync-gaming-led-monitor I just got this monitor about a month ago and it has been fantastic. Not a terrible price although admittedly I don't know how much this is in CAD. I should also say that it has worked flawlessly with G-Sync so far.

    Intel i7 8700 Temperature Issues

    How close is the back of the PC to the rear of the enclosure? Could be recycling warmer air. Is the move to this location new? Is the inside very dusty? (The top looks pretty dusty which is why I ask.)

    Monitor good for gaming and photo editing

    https://www.microcenter.com/product/478859/xf270hu-27-wqhd-144hz-dvi-hdmi-dp-freesync-gaming-led-monitor I've been loving this monitor for the past month or so. The IPS panel is very nice and is fantastic to game on.

    Optimal Temperature

    If these are the temps you are talking about this is for a Hard drive not your CPU. If you were getting those temps in Celsius then I would be worried.

    Does this build work?

    Link won't show the parts for me, but I would recommend finding the parts on pcpartpicker.com and it should let you know if everything is compatible.

    GPU Fans Pinned Fully on Overnight...

    Looks like Gigabyte's software is just bad. After a restart and opening up their software my fans went full speed again. Another restart and everything runs fine. Guess I will just have to use a different program to control those fans..

    GPU Fans Pinned Fully on Overnight...

    Yea, that was just bad wording. I appreciate the help, hopefully I will get it all figured out once I get home from work.

    GPU Fans Pinned Fully on Overnight...

    Cooling should be fine. My GPU has 3 fans, My CPU has a rather large Noctua cooler so no heat coming from that, and I have 4 case fans. Nothing was running other than a chrome browser and Discord. My GPU Idles around 40-45 C normally, and when I saw it this morning with the fans pinned it was at 22 C. I don't imagine it is Malware, but I would rather check everything.

    GPU Fans Pinned Fully on Overnight...

    Interesting, I didn't even think about that. Not sure where I would have got any malware, unless some manufacturers websites (i.e. Gigabyte, MSI, G.Skill, ect...) are infected with it.
  12. So I woke up this morning and as I was leaving for work I heard my GPU Fans screaming. I run over to my computer did a quick glance at my pc, so noting unusual running, and shut down my desktop. Anyone know why this might have happened? I Built this PC on Monday 2/18/19 my GPU is a Gigabyte RTX 2080 Windforce OC, it has a fan curve so that the fans don't come on till it reaches 40 C (I haven't really played around with a good fan curve yet) where the fans turn on to about 20%. 100% fan speed is set to 85 C at the moment I believe. Any help would be greatly appreciated. For all I know this could have been a one off.
