  1. First try and make sure that nothing else is broken. If you don't like the case it's up to you. Just pick a case which appeals to you and check out gamers nexus for a review as they have good case reviews.
  2. Hmm, all I can think of that you can try is that you can remove every cable coming from the case, including the power button. Then start the pc to rule out if it's the case that's causing an issue. It could be that another part of your pc got damaged due to the case.
  3. Are you sure you unplugged the right cable? A usb header should not have anything to do with a fan header. What motherboard are you using? Maybe just try and disconnect the entirety of the I/O panel , except the power/reset/hdd indicator wires.
  4. I need help choosing a 2080ti. As I am planning on water cooling, AIB cards with larger heatsinks that you pay extra for are an easy no. But I am having trouble with a single problem. Should I get an FE card or should I get a reference PCB Evga card. As it's reference I assume that performance will be the same. So is Evga's better warranty worth buying one of their cards over an FE card?
  5. I am planning on water cooling a 2080ti. Is it better to get a FE card and use a Heatkiller IV ( Or maybe a reference PCB Evga card) or should I get an Evga Hydro Copper 2080ti, or a FTW3 with an EKWB block? Would I get any improvements by going with an AIB or should I just stick to an FE card? I'm currently leaning towards getting an FE and I'll probably (or at least attempt to) overclock it higher. Also are there any warranty issues with taking a shroud off a FE card, if so then I'll probably go with a reference PCB Evga as I have heard that they have the best customer support and don't void warranties like that.
  6. As I said I understand. I am using RAID to basically mothball a few SSDs together for extra storage. I am going to be using a separate program for backing up data.
  7. I understand that, sorry for the confusion. I know RAID is a way to link up multiple of the same drives.
  8. By intensive I meant the occasional indie game. I now understand that the 2080ti can handle the dual monitors and I just fell for some fear mongering. Thank you for the help.
  9. Thank you for the quick reply. I just have one question. Would it be better if instead of an 8tb drive, I just get two 4tb drives and have one of them as a permanent backup. This is because the 8tb is also meant to be mass storage, so thats why I wanted to partition it, Thank you.
  10. Power draw won't be a problem. I already have a 1000w power supply so it should be more than enough. About the 0 upside part, so will it just be better to run a single gpu? The only reason I am asking this is the only other places I checked about this from, people said that anything intensive on the second monitor might make the gpu chug a bit. The 2080ti gets 100~ fps at my resolution. I am just worried about the performance, though I don't expect to be running more than chrome on the second monitor and maybe a game now and then. So is the dual gpu valid, or did I just fall for some fear mongering? Thank you for the reply.
  11. Hello, for my next build I am planning on getting a few 1tb sata SSDs and putting them together in raid 0. I am doing this to have a larger game drive. I already have an nvme for my os so I won't have to worry about that. About the drive failure part would it be sensible to have the SSDs backup to a HDD. HDDs are very cheap and I am planning on having an 8tb one so could I just partition it to the same size as the array and just back them up there? Thank you.
  12. Hello this may sound a bit stupid but, I am planning on making a new build. My current build is a 6700k and a 1060 6gb. I am planning to move to a 3900x and a 2080ti. As I am planning to use my current monitor with another better monitor, will it be possible if I can also my 1060? The 2080ti will be powering one of those 34 inch Alienware monitors, while the 1060 will be on a 29 inch 1080p lg. I know this isn't needed and I can run both monitors on the 2080ti, but I don't have plans on selling my old pc. Are there any downsides to this? All I can see is the Pcie arrangment, but Pcie 3 x8 is enough so pcie 4 x8 would be plentiful. Maybe the cpu cores won't be enough to split between the cards (if thats how it works) ? I just want some feedback over this choice, because if it is a stupid thing to do I won't do it. Thank you. (Also the 2080ti will be water cooled so thermals shouldn't be a problem?
