    Which cooler to choose

    Thx for advice but Noctua is quite expensive and for my cpu (i5 2400) which I cant even overclock is a bit overkill imo , any of the two above are adequate for this cpu and I’m going after look as well (black green build)

    Which cooler to choose

    So I’m planning to change my air cooler, and not sure which to choose out of the two , both are similar price and I know Hyper 212 have really good reputation, not sure about other one, but he will fit my black/green build.

    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    I’ve recently upgraded my rig, same components (i5 2400 and gtx 970) but bought new case ( Phanteks p400s tg) and some custom cables ... and yes Darth Vader is holding my card so is not soggy hahaha

    @PhantomTechTips yes it is suspended quite lot, feet’s are decent on this case and rises case above the floor nicely, also I don’t have carpet so it’s fine for airflow (dust filter also presented lol )

    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    @PhantomTechTips I’ve noticed that this fan is helping quite lot, I have one in front of the case (before I had two but other one wasn’t doing much) so bottom one is helping push the air up, also exhaust I have one 140mm on top. Temps are really ok with it so can’t complain about it.

    Can’t decide which mouse to choose

List of mouses Logitech G403 SteelSeries Rival 110 SteelSeries Rival 310 Mionix Castor I’m mostly playing rpgs and fps ,just now started Ironsight but need some decent mouse to play properly.

    Can’t decide which mouse to choose

    I’ve read a lot about Rival 310 and there is some quality problems, even some ppl says the rubber from the sides comes off cos of the poor quality of the glue. I bought G403, found some good deal so hopefully it’ll be fine for a while, in few months I can try something else if this mouse fails me
  9. I’m using iPhone xs max, and never had any problems with water and phone mix. Many times I take shower with my phone (replying to msgs with wet screen, not really good idea) listening to music etc, even time to time I can’t be bothered to clean my phone so just taking it to the sink and wash it there. I would only suggest to let it dry properly before u start charging otherwise u gonna be fine

    Thermaltake Versa H17

    Hi all. So I’m looking for some small case for my build ( i5 2400, HD 7770 ) which I can hide behind TV, currently I own NZXT Phantom 240 which is way too big for me and taking too much space. I was thinking about Thermaltake Versa H17 , it’s small, cheap and supports 140mm fans (have few of them laying around), but the airflow seems a bit restricted , did anyone here own this case and can tell me anything about it?? Thx

    Fractal Design Essence PSU

    Just found that PSU when browsing for new PSU for my build, does anyone know about how good it may be??

    Fractal Design Essence PSU

    I’m living in UK, my current setup is i5 2400 and HD 7770 , I want to upgrade gpu to GTX 960 but my current psu it’s weak ( Corsair VS 350) so I’ll need some new psu. Budget I would say something around £40

    Fractal Design Essence PSU

    Thx for opinion, I’ll look for some other psu, most likely something like 500w EVGA , they are quite cheap as well

    Thermaltake Versa H17

    H18 have mesh front panel but H17 have mostly covered panel with small holes on the sides that is why I was wondering about airflow on that case.

    YouTube madness

    Not sure if anyone else have noticed or it’s just me but seems like YouTube adds are getting longer , ok maybe not much longer but instead off one add I’m getting two of them and more often can’t skip them. But one of them was waaaaaay over the limit (pic)

    YouTube madness

    Double ad are a bit annoying but I’ve noticed they are shorter and u can skip them. Whats more annoying is the ads which are popping out during the videos. Some YouTube channels ( like Linus) don’t have them but some ( noticed that mostly watching EverythingApplePro) have multiple ads. That is so annoying that I’ve stopped watching there videos completely.

    GPU upgrade

    I’m planning to definitely game on it haha but most likely some older games etc, don’t worry I’m not expecting any 4k and 120fps. And tbh I don’t see reason to change for something newer like DDR4 platform, I don’t have enough time to play everyday, maybe once a week is max so why I should invest silly amounts of money.

    GPU upgrade

    Hi everyone. Currently I’m running my system which is i5 2400 and HD 7770 Ghz Edition, I was planning to buy some cheap GPU but not sure if I can go any much higher with my current psu which is Corsair VS 350 ? I was thinking to go for GTX 760 but not sure if thats not too much for psu to handle it.
  24. Michael Black

    GPU upgrade

    Alright thx for all replies, I’ll look first to get new psu and then gpu

    GPU upgrade

    I forgot to mention that I’m on really tight budget, so will be looking for second hand older cards, 1650 may be great but also a bit too expensive for me.
