  1. One day later can confirm Mod Podge brand acrylic sealer IS safe to use around cpu and gpu dies as protection.
  2. I will be using liquid metal thermal compound on the cpu and gpu of my laptop.
  3. I see, well if simple nail polish can do the job I'm sure this stuff will do great. Again thank you for your input. Also here's a link to what I'm using just because. https://www.michaels.com/mod-podge-clear-acrylic-sealer-matte/10194372.html
  4. Thanks for the reply. Mod Podge acrylic sealer is not a strange chemical, it appears to be exactly the same as acrylic conformal coating but it doesn't say conformal coating on the can and I don't know if the Mod Podge brand acrylic sealer is heat sensitive or if it will fail for any other reason. I can't buy conformal coating in my home town and that's why I'm considering buying the acrylic sealer. Not trying to cheap out, I want the best I can get. To me, nail polish seems wayyyyyy more sketchy than acrylic sealer

  6. Hey, can I use Mod Podge acrylic sealer instead of conformal coating to protect my motherboard from liquid metal seepage? I called the company that makes it and they immediately said no but I can't see why not. Probably just said no because they don't list that as an official use case.

    Current laptop VS. potential build

    I see, so the new build couldn't even get 144fps in Fortnite with all low settings except max view distance? Because my laptop gets to 90+ degrees C even after I replaced the thermal paste with arctic MX4. The laptop seems better but it thermal throttles way too much.
  8. I currently have a Dell G5 laptop maxed out with the i7-8750h and the gtx 1060 max-q. I'm wondering if it would be worth putting money into my old HP Elitedesk 800 G1 TWR (Same internals, different full-sized case) to get better gaming performance. Can anyone confirm if the new build would actually be better or not and if there are any changes you would make? Here is a link to a user benchmarks comparison between the 2 systems with exactly the parts I plan on using. Thanks in advance! Userbenchmark PC Build Comparison: Baseline Bench: Game 55%, Desk 72%, Work 60% CPU: Intel Core i7-8750H GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 (Mobile Max-Q) SSD: SK hynix SC311 SATA 128GB HDD: Seagate ST1000LM035-1RK172 1TB RAM: Unknown HMA81GS6CJR8N-VK 2x8GB MBD: Dell G5 5587 Alternative Bench: Game 71%, Desk 61%, Work 39% CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 -have GPU: Nvidia GTX 1660 -$299 SSD: Kingston A400 240GB -have HDD: WD Blue 500GB (2010) -have RAM: Samsung M378B5173DB0-CK0 2x4GB -have (EDIT: actually 4x8GB sticks) MBD: HP EliteDesk 800 G1 TWR PSU: Cooler Master Elite 600W -$65 CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED -$40 Total cost: $465 (after tax)

    i5-4570 + gtx 1660 build plan

    Yes i have the motherboard, CPU and RAM inside a large old case. I will need a new PSU though.
  10. I found this build on userbenchmarks and it is pretty much exactly what I've been planning on putting together except i have 4 8gb sticks of ram. UserBenchmarks: Game 76%, Desk 75%, Work 45% CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 GPU: Nvidia GTX 1660 SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 500GB RAM: Samsung M378B5173QH0-CK0 2x4GB MBD: HP EliteDesk 800 G1 TWR https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/16207421 Would this build give me 144FPS at 1080p on games like fortnite and at least 60FPS at 1080p in games like Battlefield V hopefully on at least medium? What kind of performance can i expect? And if anyone has a similar build i would love to hear about it!

    HP elitedesk 800 G1 gaming build

    I was looking for similar builds before i gave up and came across this setup. The only real difference is my mother board so i think this might be a decent comparison. UserBenchmarks: Game 72%, Desk 70%, Work 46% CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 - 66.9% GPU: Nvidia GTX 1660 - 77.3% HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB - 116.9% RAM: Crucial BLS4G3D1609DS1S00. 4x4GB - 59% MBD: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H

    Dell G5 2018, eGPU or new PC?

    Exactly. Is this lower performance enough to justify building a whole new PC for more money? Or is there a card and enclosure combo that would be more worth it than a full new PC?

    Dell G5 2018, eGPU or new PC?

    I have a dell G5 2018 with the i7-8750h and GTX 1060 max-q and i was wondering if i would be better off adding an eGPU with a 1660ti or an RTX 2060 or something better than what's inside anyways, or should i start building a whole new pc from scratch? I want to get the best performance for my money but and im thinking the money i save with an eGPU setup might be worth the performance losses over using the same card in a desktop. Going for 144hz at 1080p on high in recent releases. Thanks in advance!

    HP elitedesk 800 G1 gaming build

    Thanks for the suggestion. Any idea what kind of performance I could expect with those in my setup? I might also see if the board I have will take a better processor and upgrade that. Or would it be more worth it to wait until till I can upgrade the board and RAM along with the cpu all at once?
