  1. Morning, When I build my PC I used one of the online psu calculators to figure out what psu I needed. It calculated that a 600W psu would be fine for my system, but since then I've added a few bits and added a slight overclock to the CPU. Now when I tap in the numbers Its telling me I need at least a 650W psu. As things stand all is running ok but I'm hoping to take advantage of the new GPU's coming out to change my 5700XT to either the new Big Navi or a discounted 2080Ti. I can get a 850W psu for about £130 (Corsair RM850x). Would you change the psu? My system is:- Ryzen 9 3900X (OC to 4.25GHz) Sapphire RX 5700XT OC SE edition 24Gb 3600 DDR 4 2x M.2 drives 1x SATA SSD 1x SATA Mechanical HD Asus X570 ROG Gaming-f MB Coolermaster H500M case I'm also running 2x 200 RGB fans in the front of the case, 1x 140 at the rear and 2x Corsair ML140 RGB at the top. EDIT: I'm also running 2 x 27inch Monitors both at 1440p Current PSU is the Kolink Enclave 600 Gold plus psu
  2. I know, I was surprised as well. But I did it a few times and that's what i got. They were both tested with a Ryzen 3 3100 and 16mb of RAM, same motherboard as well.
  3. I recently tested both a RX 570 from Asus and a MSI 1650. Got the following 3d Mark results Time Spy - GTX1650 - 3648, RX570 4030 Fire Strike - GTX1650 - 8332, RX 570 11410
  4. I use a Corsair K70 Mk 2, its mechanical, metal construction, full size and RGB. You can choose which switches you want. https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Gaming-Keyboards/RGB-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboards/K70-RGB-MK-2/p/CH-9109014-UK
  5. Ok, have you confirmed that the case power switch is connected properly? Try shorting the two terminals with a screwdriver if you want to turn it on.
  6. Do the mobo lights come on as soon as the you turn on the psu or when you push the power button on the case?
  7. Ahh gotcha, yes you can do that. sorry I misunderstood.
  8. I have a K55 keyboard and yes it is compatible with iCue but you can only program zones with colours. Individual keys are not able to be programmed to separate colours.
  9. Try Overclockers.co.uk. I know they stock that brand.
  10. Should my RX5700XT be capable of playing ROTTR at 1440P high settings? Cos I occasionally keep getting crashes in the game with a message saying that my graphics card has ran out of resources (can’t remember the exact wording) it’s odd cos I can play newer games such as Red Dead without any such issues at 1440 and high settings.
  11. Lol, the UK market is a tad more expensive. A new 2080Ti over here is from £1100 (that’s the cheapest I could find from a reputable dealer) which is approx $1450, used prices are not much less that new on flea bay.
  12. Well Ive got a RX 5700XT and a Ryzen 9 3900X on a 650 watt psu and it works fine.
