    Definitely not 450W. Probably the 430W one.

    People look for things wrong with Intel, and things that are good for AMD. Very common. Intel and AMD are not kids on a playground, with AMD being bullied. They're companies selling a product, and we're consumers who spend our hard earned money on that product. We have no responsibility to protect either.

    no real problems for me, looks very strong. It would depend on your budget and usage case. Something you should always state in a new build thread. We see a lot of posts from people saying a need a new computer, what do you think of this? xx yy zz
     
    but we need to know
     
    1) Budget
    2) Location
    3) Primary and secondary usage
    4) Any peripherals that are required such as keyboard, mouse, headset, monitor
    5) OS to be used

    if you can find another £200 you can get a 1080ti, which is a big upgrade from the 1080, also, to throw another spanner - new cards from Nvidia in July/August

    The GPU is the biggest power hog here, a 550w would be the minimum requirement.

    I did not see that ACER was G-Sync! definitely will swap for the ACER for the cost saved, thanks!
    8700K fit's nicely into that budget now hmm.

If that's not enough you can always get a USB expansion card

    stealth80 got a reaction from M300843499 in Is a 2600X a good upgrade for me? ( I game at 130hz 16:10)   
    With a Fury it will be decent. The 8700k/8600k only really pulls ahead of the 2600X/2700X in gaming at 1080P with a 1080ti - however if you want to remain at 1080P and pick up one of the newer more powerful Nvidia 11XX series later this year, then go with Intel, otherwise either is fine

    stealth80 got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in Is this forum as pro-intel anti-AMD as tom's hardware ?   
    Ok for example
     
    imo (don't wanna start any arguments here with potential fan boys  and purely 8700k vs 2700x)
     
    8700k is the best option for gaming, especially high refresh gaming
     
    2700X is the better option for streamers who stream regularly and viewer side FPS is important to them - also better for editers
     
    That been said - the difference in editing is smaller than the difference at 1080P gaming with a 1080ti
     
    I think that is pretty accurate and unbiased. I know there are other factors such as adobe blah blah - but I aint doing a review here, its just what I believe is an unbiased opinion

    stealth80 got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in New Ryzen build   
    OP aint overclocking, so imo, the 2600x is the better option for auto-clocks and with the new X470 chipset, the X is worth it to take advantage of the PB2 (on the chip) and XFR2 and keep in mind the Wraith comes with the "X" and non-X versions
     
    I would aim for a larger SSD if you can, 120gb will fill fast even with just OS and a few other apps (by the time you loose your formatting section as well)

    stealth80 reacted to Wildgg in 2 Noctua Fans on a GTX 1080ti // Results UPDATED   
    Yup i'm crazy like that haha!
     
    yeah i was hoping for a 5C drop but 10C is very good.
    also like to note that normally my room temp is not 24C lol, it's just hot this time of the year, so it would run a bit cooler normally
     
    the noise is WAY better then before with the strix cooler.
    the strix cooler would ramp up to 1700/1800rpm to keep it around 70C and it got pretty loud.
    Noctua fans are just great! nothing much to say about them just amazing.
     
    i had a custom loop before with a 1070 but i'm not going full loop every again, just not my thing i guess

    Hey LTT
     
    For a while now i wanted to lower the temps on my GTX 1080ti From Asus and didn't want to go with a AIO on the GPU, it is the OC Strix version with the triple fans.
     
    You can do this mod yourself if you have 2 decent 120mm fans.
    I used 2x Noctua NF-F12's
    This will not void your warranty unless you break something your self, so you don't need to break/remove any stickers but all you need to do is remove all the small screws that are holding the shroud and fans in place.
     
    This is not going to be a tutorial but just some results i got.
     
    Before=with the stock Asus Strix cooler
    After = with the 2 Noctua fans.
     
    24C ambient temp
    Noctua Fans are locked on 80% = 1150rpm and they are very quiet, only at 100% they get noticeable for me.
     
    Valley Benchmark on maxed settings 1080p  CLICK HERE  for screenshot.
    Before max temp: 73C
    After    max temp: 64C
     
    5Hours of gaming. mainly PUBG,why PUBG? because it's actually a very realistic test and the game is not easy to run at high frame rates. CLICK HERE for screenshot.
    Before max temp: 71C
    After   max temp: 61C
     
    Zip ties were used to secure the fans, this was very easy to do since there is a metal bracket on the heat sink to secure them to.
    CLICK HERE (album) For all the pictures i made along the way
     
    I don't mind the look actually but the stock Strix cooler is nicer if i'm going to be honest.
    in the end it was worth it, i'm very happy with the temps and how quiet my system now is under full load.
    If you're going to do this yourself you can expect about a 8/10C Drop. (depending on the Fan Quality and rpm's you use and Case airflow helps allot to)
     
    Let me know what you think!
    If you have any questions or requests for benchmarks let me know!

    If you can, i wouldn't take 4x4, go with 2x8, support is a lot better, but 4 slots has a higher chance of causing you issues than 2 slots.
