  1. Deepcool Matrexx 70 ADD-RGB, best bang for the buck case, I own it myself! -$81 USD / $108 CAD -comes with 4 fans pre-installed -Support for up to a 360mm Rad in front and another up top -tempered glass side panel -tempered glass front panel -metal PSU shroud with integrated RGB strip -the only case to have a tinted reflective glass cover for the PSU shroud. Review here:
  2. Just bought an EVGA SC2 Hybrid 1080 Ti, I was thinking of mounting the rad & fan at the rear of my case but I've heard others say not to. Where should I mount it? Should it share the top of my case with my 280mm AIO?
  3. Electrical interference with your audio output.
  4. An RTX 2060/Super is essentially just a GTX 1080 with Ray Tracing cores, so the FPS really doesn't come as a surprise.
  5. Since your CPU lacks hyperthreading, there is simply less CPU to be utilized when compared to another CPU with hyperthreading. It is perfectly normal that you are seeing high utilization on a 6 core / 6 thread CPU when compared to a 6 core / 12 thread CPU.
  6. most of those coolers wont do too much better than the stock cooler, so if your going for a good budget cpu cooler, than just stick with the included one and save $30 to spend on something else.
  7. I think that it's a common misconception that you need to buy a gaming headset to game as most of them simply have poor audio quality when compared to a regular competitor. So anyways, here is a list of the best headphones under £100 Best headphones under under £100 ($130 USD) include: Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (Closed back) Beyerdynamic DT 880 (Semi-Open) Sennheiser HD559 (Open back) Sennheiser HD579 (Open back) Massdrop x Sennheiser HD58X Jubilee (Open back) Massdrop x HIFIMAN HE4XX (Open back)
  8. Not only with consoles but also home stereo receivers. I have seen a few audiophiles around with gutted out retro home theater receivers with full PCs built inside... a console's case will work too though...
  9. Btw B450 is fine for a 2700, just be aware of the poor VRMs, lack of features, and slower supported DDR4 speeds on anything older than x470. B450 could also do an R5 3600, but I wouldn't recommend any less than an MSI Gaming Pro Carbon X470 motherboard (best AMD board under $200)
  10. doesn't make a difference in gaming, check the benchmarks
  11. perfectly normal, its lower speeds are based on utilization (lower utilization = lower clocks), you can set the minimum and maximum clock speeds more intricately in the new Radeon Wattman, whereas apps like afterburner just raise your maximum allowed clock (at 90%+ utilization).
  12. Yes, any higher than a mid-tier GTX card will be a bottleneck on an FX-6300. I used to own an FX-9590 PC personally, that would bottleneck at and above a GTX 1080 (a 2070 super is about 25% faster, and 25% more of a bottleneck than a GTX 1080)
  13. There is not a single modern GPU capable of 1440p without bottlenecking this CPU below playable framerates, this is an Intel equivalent to an FX-8350... There is a definite need for an upgrade.
