  1. Hello everyone! I am in need of a new gaming headset because my wired Corsair Void Pro has seen better days, the sleeving is damaged, and my ear padding are worn out. I am looking to purchase a wireless headset this time because of my new setup and how the layout is. I am looking at lots of options and so far the only two that peek my interest are the Hyper X Cloud Flight S model (2020) and the SteelSeries Arctis 7 (2019) model. They are in the price range of $180-$200 CAD. (Canadian) Is there anyone that can recommend more or help me decide between the two ? Thank you
  2. Okay everyone seems to be confused , I already have my own nzxt fans that came with my radiator I'm planning to use them still attached to the radiator, I just want to know where to place my radiator and other llfans
  3. I see, one more question what do you mean last one Why can't I put it at the back ?? This is my case
  4. Wait I also have my two LL140MM fans left over, and what should my aio be put as? an intake or exhaust? So should I not make full use of all the fan slots? I have enough for the backrear/side/bottom . (120mm/120mm x3/ 140mm 2)
  5. Hello, I have a Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL , and I was wondering what would be the best fan/radiator set up? I got a real good deal on my 6 LL Corsair RGB fans 4x LL120MM and 2x LL140MM, I got them for only $175 CAD when it would have costed me $372. I also have a x62 NZXT 280MM aio cooler. I wanted to know where should I place my fans? I was thinking about putting my radiator on the top but wasn't sure if I should make it exhaust or intake and 3 LL120MM fans as exhaust on the side and 1 LL120MM for the back rear as an exhaust as well. The last two LL140MM fans I wanted to put at the bottom since it supports 280MM at the bottom, as intake for the case.
  6. Just a quick bump, is there anyone else who has a 3900x with an AIO cooler similar to the x62 NZXT ? What are your temperatures around? I tried my best , I wired everything almost perfectly in organization and cable management and to have as much air flow as possible but its still sitting in the 50s and sometimes spiking from 45s-70s but averaging at 50s. I even reapplied the AIO it self and screwed it from opposite corners to get equal surface and to screw it in tight as possible its still the same thing
  7. Doesn't seem like I can remove the front panel, it pulls air from the side and bottom , case has filters below and on the side
  8. Yes my radiator is mounted on the front of my nzxt h500 case, with the fans in between the radiator and mounting device that comes with the nzxt h500 as an intake fan, but I have not tried removing the front panel , how do you do that ?
  9. I'm running it as normal just bought the aio cooler and opened it straight from the box and just installed everything so I'm guessing default? NZXT x62 AIO
  10. It spreaded the thermal paste correctly, I made sure to check the first time by lifting it and seeing if that was the issue but it was evenly spreaded, so I just reapplied a pea size to a bit more amount of thermal paste for my 3900x After these pictures I, added a very tiny amount more to the center and spreaded it evenly
  11. Hello I seem to have an issue with my temperatures on my 3900x, I was told my idle temperatures seem a bit too high with an aio cooler on my 3900x ? I idle around 40-50°C and sometimes spike to 60-65°C for a second or two resulting in my maximum hitting 65 on HWInfo64 but it averages around 50. I was told to stress test my CPU by using prime95 and 5 mins in I had an average of 75 °C Maximum was 80 °C , after 20 minutes it reached the 95°C then I just stopped the test I tried reapplying the thermal paste but that didnt help is this normal?

  12. Oh i see, so if I was to use my NZXT x62 280mm AIO cooler and 6 120m fans for the bottom and side that will be okay?
  13. Hello everyone , I wanted to know if its alright to be cooling a system with a x62 NZXT cooler and 7 120mm fans 3 on the side and 3 on the bottom and 1 at the back for the LIAN LI O11 Dynamic XL ROG. I was told that a "unspoken rule" of the Lian Li case is meant for Water cooling?? I really love the aesthetics of the case and its on sale for a good price I just want to know if its alright to be cooling the case with 6 120mm fans and a x62 280mm aio cooler as well I noticed that people do tend to have custom water cooling for the full tower LIAN LI O11 Dynamic XL ROG case so I was just concerned if It would be doing me worst than good air cooling with such a bag case
  14. Hello, I have a question . I am in need to look for a new cooler and I'm deciding to get an AIO cooler for my current PC because I have 4x16 GB Trident Z RAM , and the first slot is being blocked by my Windale 6 FSP Air cooler. So I am currently only using 2 sticks 2x16. I wanted to get the NZXT x62 AIO cooler because my current case the nzxt h500 can only fit up to 280MM for a Radiator. I wanted to ask if the cooler will have any clearance issues with 4 RAM sticks especially with the Trident Z heat sink . If there is issues, can someone recommend a good AIO cooler that won't have any issues. I am asking because theres an old thread about the x62 having some issues for others and some don't depending on the MOBO they own. Here's the link to the old thread https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/748016-does-the-nzxt-kraken-x62-block-the-first-memory-slot-on-all-motherboards/page/2/
  15. I decided to buy this one https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B077SBSHJW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  16. Is there a preference in which type? Cat6 and cat5e or whatever the options are
  17. Hello, I have been having issues with my Wi-Fi , It seems to be stable for about 5-10 minutes and then it disconnects for about 10-20 seconds and then it goes back to normal? It keeps happening when im in game/call and its really annoying because it just kicks me out. I am trying to figure out why this happens because its my first time using the WiFi because I moved my setup away from my modem but im still near it just not long enough for my ethernet wire to connect. So I decided why not use the wifi that it comes with but here I am having issues with connection and disconnecting If I am getting a longer ethernet cable If I have to, whats the better one? whats the difference between cat6 and cat5e This is my pc build PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor $418.95 @ B&H CPU Cooler FSP Group Windale 6 60 CFM CPU Cooler $49.99 @ Amazon Motherboard Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard $379.99 @ Amazon Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $325.99 @ Newegg Storage Western Digital Black NVMe 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $109.99 @ Amazon Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $54.98 @ Newegg Video Card Asus GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB STRIX GAMING OC Video Card $616.48 @ Amazon Case NZXT H500i ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply Corsair RMx (2018) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply $139.99 @ Best Buy Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit $139.99 @ Other World Computing Case Fan be quiet!

  18. So was it my RAMs fault ? it's 32gb 3000 mhz , what should I do
  19. Hello, I just had a scary experience. I recently got a 3900x as a gift and I decided to upgrade my current ryzen 2600 with it. I did the usual update the bios ready for ryzen 3000s , it was working for the day i was gaming fine, browsing the internet perfectly. till night time and all of a sudden the screen froze and went black but went back to the way it was, but a few minutes again it just turned black and stayed black and it wasnt responding. I decided to reboot and it wasnt showing anything all my LEDS on my gpu and the fans were spinning. I decided to jump start CMOS and it held the DEL key after jump starting the CMOS it worked and started back into bios. but should I avoid using the ryzen 3900x now with the b450f board I heard the VRMs on the board isnt going to handle the 3900x well, and I guess that was the reason why my pc became all wonky just now. Have I damaged any of my parts because of this? I was planning to save up and get a x570 but now I'm afraid ill have to get one quick
