  1. I was going off the standard sleeve bearing lifespans. If you don't have them blowing vertically, they do last that long.
  2. Then you have about 4 years and 5 months left of minimum expected lifespan.
  3. If you drop it to 90% fan speed, it should increase its lifespan to about double.
  4. Yeah, no telling what the next gen will actually have. Either buy now at a lower price to hold you over, or be contented with what you have now, or be contented with what you buy now. The choice is yours.
  5. The 5700 series, XT in particular, can max out settings in the majority of games at 1440p and still get you at least 60FPS. The ones it can't are just the ones that have settings that push the VRAM usage past 8GB, and have issues using shared RAM stably.
  6. It'll either rip the cardboard outer layer off slightly, or the adhesive will turn white due to the separation. Either way, it's visible.
  7. If you're looking for an upgrade now, I'd say go for an RX 5700 or XT.
  8. There is also the upcoming "big Navi" releases to contend with, and they very well could beat out the Nvidia offerings at the same price point.
  9. You can, but it's designed to leave a visible mark to indicate that the box was opened so as to prevent fraudulent resale of it being "new, never opened" instead of "Open Box", or returned for refund/replace without inspection.
  10. Indeed, but bear in mind that even if the fan was running at 100% speed 24/7/365, it should still last at least 5 years, unless it's a faulty fan.
  11. If you're using OBS, you can put the AMD Navi cards in the running. Their hardware encoder is now on-par with NVENC, if the software supports it properly. OBS has a pre-release update that enable full proper support for it. Releases · obsproject/obs-amd-encoder · GitHub
  12. Sounds like it might be a faulty VRM that fried some of the PCIe lanes on the CPU. I had that happen right before the VRMs on my motherboard fried completely, taking my CPU with it. (not the same motherboard or CPU though, and I was overvolting by a LOT)
  13. Because of that, you may have permanent damage to many components in your system. What exact model of PSU is it?
  14. Are you connecting with DisplayPort or HDMI? Some monitors have a poor implementation of DisplayPort, and it can cause the flickering issue on the 5700 series.
