  1. Hey, so I’m looking to upgrade from my 1060 3GB to the 3070 when it is released and I was wondering if people think it would place and bottlenecks on my CPU which is a i5 8600KF?

    120mm AIOs are often worse than a good air cooler, so the only reason to get one is the looks. Honestly, just get any from reputable manufacturers. NZXT, Corsair, Cooler Master, Silverstone, whatever. They're all about the same AFAIK. (a few degrees difference at most). You could buy nicer looking ones with displays on them (like NZXT Kraken) if you want good looks.

    For an air cooler what would you recommend, i was thinking about a noctua NH U12S chromax.black

  3. Hey, so im looking at moving to an AIO from an intel stock cooler for a couple of reasons, 1:to look better, 2:better performance and 3:im changing to a new cpu so i need a new cooler. However i need a 120mm as my case does not support a 240.


    So the ultimate question is what 120mm AIO would you recommend for LGA 1151?

  4. Hi, so im currently working on a upgrade on my Pc im moving to a I5 9600KF from the I3 8100. Im also looking at upgrading my 1060 3gb to either a 2060S or a 2070S and wondering which would be a better bang for buck?

    go AMD (Radeon RX 570 or something). Also, for your CPU, I would get Ryzen 3100 if your country has it priced right.

    Thanks, I have now changed the GPU to the RX 570 which is saving around £30 and the 3100 is like £100 extra than the 2200g I found so that does not make a whole lot of sense for me.

    Unless you’re friend is against it, I would go for used. You can usually find much better bang for your buck in used at this price range.

    They want it to be as new as possible im using a few used parts such as CPU, GPU and RAM

  7. Hey, so im currently working on a list for my friend who is on a very strict budget of £350. He has asked for a pc for genral use and some lite gaming.

    KF comes with free fried chicken.


    It's just a "cutdown" version of the same processor without iGPU, which should have reduced the cost of the unit at launch by about 20$. Might be a slightly better overclocked because of this lack too, but probably not really. 

    Thanks sounds great there is a price drop of £40 for me which is around $50

  9. Hi, so I’m looking to upgrade my pc and I want to change my cpu out from a 8100 to a 9600k and while I was scrolling through amazon there was a 9600kf and I was wondering if this would work fine in a normal system or not as I had a quick look and it seemed to me that the only difference was no integrated graphics chip but I’m not sure if there are any other differences?

  10. Recently we have been having some WiFi issues in our home with disconnections and poor speeds around the house so we upgraded our connection to a 350mbps connection to try and resolve some of our issues however this has not made much of a difference. Now I’m thinking it’s due to the ISPs router unit, it’s a Virgin media super hub 3.0. So I’m thinking of buying a Ubiquiti UAP-AC-LR and disabling the WiFi on the virgin hub. Does anyone think this will help resolve my issue? Also if I did get a UAP-AC-LR would I also need the unify cloud key?
