  1. Depends if the HP mid tower has a normal PSU. allot of prebuilts have proprietary power connections and sizes
  2. I had 2 of them and no I built PC's in them and sold them. The case was very fun to build in and I wish Thermaltake would still make that case instead of copying others.
  3. The computers I have built since I have been on LTT... Well most of the computers some have slipped through the cracks.
  4. ya the 16 gigs of ram could be swapped out with a 1TB NVMe SSD also the cooler is kind of meh.. but over all the build is good.
  5. Must be nice to live next to a micro center
  6. well In my opinion I would just get another 27in 1440p monitor to match the one you have now but if thats not an option I would look at something like https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-XB273-Pbmiprzx-FHD/dp/B08PPQHGCS/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=32+in+acer+monitor&qid=1628885346&sr=8-3
  7. I mean it is a fairly standard AIO should expect 40's on idle 70 full tilt on a 5800x the cam software is fairly straight forward.
  8. you can pick up a 4670K i5 for about $40 https://www.ebay.com/itm/234135687292?hash=item368393107c:g:WAIAAOSwp~NhFa1j
  9. go into your bios and turn off you CPU fan header if you are not using it. then reboot and press F1
  10. dont stress just unplug everything and plug it back in. stay calm and make sure everything is were it needs to be. also make sure your GPU is properly seated. also if you still have your old card you can try using that to see if the pc boots properly.
  11. ya I would check all your power connections then you may have dislodged your 24 pin or 8 pin cables. Even if you get led's it doesn't mean that the power is fully seated.
  12. Was it working before you put it in your system? and its always good to retry and seat your PSU cables if you are having issues
  13. Try Corsair, Performance PC, or EK to buy your parts Corsair I think would have the best prices for shipping but you can always try Amazon. The Issue I see that you might run into is that you have several manufactures and trying to get you LED's on all of them to play nice might be hard. Also since you already need to get your GPU block from EK since the Trinity block is the only one I know that fits that card your best bet is to go with EK or Performance PC and just getting everything at once so you only have to pay shipping one time. Good brands EK, Bitspower, Alpha cool, Corsair. I act
