  1. What adapter are you suggesting here? I'd be interested in grabbing that.
  2. Apologies if this is the wrong section, I recently purchased the Matrexx 70 3F, which comes with three included deepcool 120mm RGB fans and a single RGB strip. These fans are controlled by either an RGB header on mobo, or the built in RGB controller button on the case itself (If I'm correct). My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3, which does not have an RGB header, and right now, I am using the built in case system to control said RGB components. I am wanting to purchase an additional 3 RGB fans (have been looking at Corsair 120mm RGB fans), however these fans will require an RGB header to control, and will need the corsair software, (and use different headers then the deepcool components in my case I believe?) The question is, am I correct in thinking that: Ideally my best options would be to purchase 3 more DEEPCOOL fans and connect them using a fan controller to the existing case system, since deepcool has its own ecosystem, and too keep RGB that is in sync, and continue using the case to control the RGB.. OR Purchase a motherboard with RGB headers and plug all fans into it, in order to have more control over the lighting, and keep everything in the deepcool ecosystem for better lighting sync.. Thanks for any and all advice, I'm fairly new.
  3. I have been looking at the 2060 range, I'll try and find a better deal, Thanks!
  4. Hey guys, Ideally I'm looking to get the most worthwhile upgrades while keeping any existing parts that are still up to the task. With that being said, I really am open to any and all suggestions. My Current PC: i7-6700k, GTX 970 (Asus), Kingston SSDNow V300 120gb, WD Blue 1TB, Kingston 2x8gb @ 2133 Mhz, Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3-CF. The PC is primariy used for 1080p 1920x1080 res gaming. I am looking to run nearly any game at 1440p or 1080p for the foreseeable future, games like ARK: Survival Evolved, Rust, Call of Duty: MW, Civ 6 (I Understand these aren't extremely graphics intensive). I also do a fair amount of multitasking, and currently use two monitors, with three being a possibility in the future. The main upgrades I am looking at include: - New Graphics card - New Case - M.2 SSD - New CPU Fan - RGB Controller (Since my MOBO doesn't have one I believe?)(Only because I want to grab some RGB Fans and such) - Another 1TB HD - More RAM (Not needed, but some advice on good value RGB Ram would be great, only as a luxury) - New Motherboard (If it would be neccessary to use newer parts or get the most out of my specs) I'm wanting to upgrade to keep my PC "up to date"/relevant, with my current specs getting fairly old now. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want some RGB as well, but thats non-essential but prefered. The PC was bought as a pre-build when I knew little about computers, but I now feel comfortable being able to upgrade it myself, but I would still like some councel. The parts I've been looking at and are fairly certain on include: - MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming X 6G - Deepcool Matrexx 70 A-RGB Tempered Glass Case - WD Green 120gb M.2 SSD I will also be buying more fans, as to overclock my CPU properly and whatever graphics card I get. Budget of roughly $1000 AUD, +/- $200 if needed. It is also my understanding that I technically could use my current motherboard to use both the GTX 960 AND GTX 1660s? But one of my PCIE lanes is only 4x so wouldn't be as effective? And also that most PC functions including games don't utilize the power of two gpu's? I Think that's everything, Thanks for any and all advice!
