so it's basically about overclockability& temperatures?

 

Is there any way to "rank" coolings by sound level as well? BTW, I thought that MSI Armor is really not that good& MSI Gaming is certainly top-tier stuff.

 

Thank you for the list and effort. Great work.

sound might just get too much effort, we mainly focus on cooler performance

 

but it's mainly cooling and problems, as mentioned

 

Thanks tho

5850 PCS+ says otherwise, old i know but.. ughh.

 

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_5850_PCS_Plus/

that's why

 

as mentioned, we only include nvidia 1000 1600 and 2000 series, and rx 500 and vega series for amd

 

which makes the card not listed

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
