  1. AIO's come with tubes in all different diameters and that GPU is just another AIO. You'd probably want to ask Cablemod or just do the measurements yourself if you're unsure.

    I'll tell you the obsession with refresh rate and 1080p baffles me in 2021. I moved to 2560x1600 back in 2010 but I guess it's what the kids want these days. I guess this is cheap. https://www.newegg.com/black-acer-nitro-ed270-xbmiipx-um-he0aa-x01-27/p/N82E16824011367?quicklink=true Personally I'd prefer a higher resolution and something like 144Hz as you're gaining nothing going much higher.
  3. That specifically isn't even something I notice. I really don't care what's happening in a cutscene as long as the gameplay is unaffected. If that's something you're sensitive to, maybe ultrawide isn't for you.
  4. Well I move through things as they come out then move on to something new. The only thing I play consistently is Destiny 2 and that's absolutely flawless on an Ultrawide. Some Apex recently, 100 hours of Cyberpunk. Valheim for a bit. Looking forward to the new Subnautica as I played the crap out of the first one. I don't know if I can sit and list every game I've ever played. I've been an UW user for so long that "compatibility" isn't really something I even think about anymore so these threads that pop up are always a little interesting to me. In my expe
  5. Been using a PG348Q since mid 2017 and rarely if ever have a problem. Not even close to enough of a problem to want to ever go back to 16:9.
  6. Wait, now you're hoping that it just idles at less than 100w? This would have been very useful information for your original post. Generally when making requirements for power usage, you're working in terms of full system load. If you only need it to idle at less than 100w you can get away with a much more powerful CPU.
  7. I'm confused over the 100w requirement now. We know that the listed TDP doesn't mean that the CPU will never pull more than that, and you haven't accounted for any other devices in the system and their power draw. If all you wanted was a CPU with <100W TDP that would have been a much easier task, however you're OP seems to make it seem like you want a whole system that will never pull more than 100W. Justy settling on a 65W TDP CPU doesn't ensure you that's what you'll get.
  8. Assuming you watched this already?
  9. You're not getting those scores on a system with a total wattage limit of 100w. I'm not seeing how you think you can. You're 100w limit is the problem here, not the CPU performance.
  10. Backup the stuff in your user folder then fresh install windows 10 on the new system. If you have a retail key for Windows 7, use that to activate Windows 10, otherwise you'll need a new key.
  11. Why? He/she gave a suggestion that would fit your requirements perfectly.
  12. And here I thought the RVU would would be my salvation after a string of double clicking Logitech G703's.
  13. I guarantee you, not a single person here "knows" this. Not one. You'll be waiting at least till the end of this year, if not longer. Probably longer.
  14. Do you have a wire grommet/hole in the desk? I had a similar issue but this cheap monitor arm i bought had an alternate mount that attached it to the wire grommet hole instead of clamping on to the back of the desk. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Z7ZGHD5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Holding up my Asus PG348Q.
