  1. I'd definitely get some more thermal paste and re-mount it with a fresh paste application.
  2. If it fits you well then go for it, now that I'm thinking about it mine was a 1.0 instead of 2.0, which I believe were known for mushy triggers.
  3. I've been super happy with Crossbreed's SuperTuck holsters, though I would really encourage you to rent/fire a Shield before purchasing if you can. I had a shield for a few months and it always just didn't feel right when carrying or firing it; it could be due to me not upgrading the trigger but I tend to lean on the side of I shouldn't have to upgrade a gun after purchasing it just to carry/shoot it comfortably.
  4. I did upclock the memory slightly to 3200MHz over its rated 3000MHz but that's about it
  5. Did a quick and dirty OC on my new 3700X today, still running stock cooler until I order an H115i (ignore voltage, it's locked at 1.325V)
  6. Seems like AMD sent reviewers the 3700X and 3900X as representatives of two big price points for the lineup. I'm guessing we'll see more of the line in the coming weeks as we usually do
  7. Was just talking to my friend in the UK, he said the sites are taking orders but no estimated delivery date, guess its just a US perk I ordered my 3700X earlier from Newegg US, hopefully they go in stock soon for you guys!
  8. This is what I did for a long time, until I got gigabit internet at least (old house wiring meant my 1Gbps theoretical speed fell to ~100Mbps after the adapters). I now use a Neatgear A7000 WiFi USB3.0 Adapter, it's still not near my max bandwidth (~300Mbps where I am in the house), but it's much better than the adapters were, and haven't noticed any loss of signal.
  9. Yeah that's pretty much where I'm at. I know the performance of watercooling will be super close to a NH-D15 or similar, but I'm so close to that "fuck it, I'm an enthusiast" mark of going back to a custom loop.
  10. I was "that dude" that lugged a Corsair 750D desktop into the dorms for gaming/LANs, and chose a light ultrabook for any classroom/library work. I'm definitely not suggesting a full tower, but I would really recommend going with a decent desktop for living space and LAN use and a light, lower power laptop for classroom/library use. You'll get much better gaming performance when you do need it, without having to compromise on the lightness or compactness of your laptop.
  11. A bit of backstory: When I built my current PC in early 2015, I installed a custom water loop (soft tubing) for my overclocked 4790k and reference GTX 970. The loop ran great for years with little maintenance other than routine drains/refills (using a bio-cide agent and distilled water). Recently due to some hardware changes I removed the loop and installed a Hyper 212 EVO back, which works fine for my current mild OC, but I do sort of miss have a watercooled build for some reason. My real question today is this; especially considering Ryzen 3000 series dropping today (I think?), in my situation, would you bother going back to watercooling? I would like to upgrade to the 3700x pretty soon, and maybe a RX 5700 if it looks promising post release. It seems components are a lot more enegy efficient these days (unless you go full 9900k/threadripper), so I'm wondering if it's worth the extra cost, especially as a student), to buy a new pump/res combo and go back to water.
  12. The 1660 TI can definitely do this. I'm running older games at full settings or even older ones with lower detail at 4k, staying above the "comfortable" FPS mark with my 1660 TI overclocked. Hoping to replace it once the RX 5700's drop though.
