    I would definitely switch the CPU to an i5-6500. That I3 will definitely bottleneck you in a lot of games.

    The i5-6500 is much better than the i3
    I chose an asrock motherboard because those are able to handle ram speeds above 2133MHz on a non z170 motherboard.
    The SSD is what I personally have, and it's quite good for a nice price.
    The PSU is from seasonic which is a good an reliable brand, and it's modular which you're really gonna like in such a small case like that.

    I got 4.2GHz on my fx 6300 with the stock cooler, and stock thermal paste. Ran it for about 9 months (crazy right) but I think the paste went too dry and my temps sky rocketed. It's now @3.8MHz

    Anyways, I did a malware scan and it found 3 things. After half an our of use the pop up still hasn't occurred but I'm not certain yet if it is gone. Hopefully it is in which case, thanks for the help of you guys

    SkixAces got a reaction from IPickle in Question about the Razer Deathadder classic   
    I thought it might have been included because that mouse, and one other mouse on the whole site, are the only ones showing a mousepad on the picture.
    Hopefully somebody on here has actually bought the mouse, or knows someobdy who did and is sure it is/is not included

    There's one problem though. 1 month after you have upgraded to windows 10, the windows 7 code get's linked to windows 10, and it is unusable for windows 7 ever again.
    Aka, he is stuck at windows 10 unless he buys a new key

    SkixAces got a reaction from Last_Shadow98 in windows 10 crash whit a pci wireless dapter   
    The problem is most likely drivers. Windows 10 still has quite a lot of bugs which is why I reverted back to my good ol' windows 7.
    You can try going to the site of your wifi adapter and see if there are any windows 10 drivers. If there are, download and install them and see if it still crashes. 
    If there aren't any, I'd suggest going back to  your old operating system

    SkixAces got a reaction from iHardware Shelden in People are saying the 860k will bottleneck the 380. Will overclocking fix it?   
    In games like gta 5, or battlefield 4 (64 man servers) you will defo see a big improvement in fps when overclocking (at least I had a decent bump when I oc'ed my fx 6300 +700MHz with stock fan, and couldn't push it further)
    in other less demanding cpu games you might see a slight improvement of 2-3 fps, but it minor, and won't really affect gameplay.
    If you play cpu intensive games, then yes, it will defo benefit you!

    SkixAces reacted to Godlygamer23 in Can I overclock my ram, and will it benefit me?   
    At this point, yes. Overclocking memory helps with transfer and if you mess with latency settings, you can squeeze out more performance, but you will most likely not notice it.

    But you have 16GB of ram, so the 350MB of saved ram doesnt help.
    If you would've had 4 or 6 GB of ram it could be helpfull, but for you: nope

    You mean downsampling? You can find this in the nvidia control panel. I think it is called, DSR, or dynamic super resolution.
    I dont know where it is in the nvidia control panel, but I know if you turn it on, you can change the resolution in your game, without changing it for the whole desktop
