  1. with 3080's looking to be scarce until next year, if your fear is your PC being unable to game, there are also some cheap 2080Ti's floating around now.
  2. an I5-8600k is fine for the 3080, it will not extract the same potential at extremely high refresh rates (144hz and up) that a i9-10900k will but you will certainly see a large performance improvement across the board.
  3. Here's the NH-D15 which is about $90. It is one of the best air coolers, why not spend another $30 and get the best air cooler money can buy instead of fiddling around with these mid tier coolers for 60-70$?
  4. Help us all. Everyone Likes to beat on the Hyper 212/evo, its a great cooler and for the price is awesome... sure it is a FEW degrees off the nocuta and dark rock but it's... Half?(maybe) the price. If money is a concern and you're not overclocking more than midly (which should be the case with any of these coolers), the 212 is the performance per dollar winner. If you want the best performance... IMO get a bigger tower cooler for money similar to the NH-U12S. if you can fit these coolers you can probably fit a much larger cooler in the same space like a NH-D15. i'll t
  5. For example, from the same website this card HERE. This card uses an internally exhausted cooler with a much larger heat sink for potentially better cooling. it does exhaust the heat inside the case so you may need more fans or ventilation to keep the rest of the case cool but it will allow for more overclocking and be quieter. The card that you linked is fine however. It will produce more noise but it has the benefit of not pushing all of the hot exhaust air into the case and instead pushes it out the back of the card. It will work fine but these "Blower" style cards usu
  6. It appears that you're all set to go ahead and get the card. according to the EVGA product page HERE that PSU (EVGA 600 BQ)has 2 8pin pcie cables available. Congrats! post again when you get the card installed and up running and tested, we'd like to see the finished product and hear how the install went and what you think of the upgrade. One final thought. If that's the card you want, then go for it! But there are other options with better coolers for likely a similar price that you may want to consider.
  7. The "back panel" is the side opposite of the panel you removed to see the motherboard, it must be removable because you can see the power cables that are run behind the motherboard. the back panel is not the rear of the machine where the power, usb, and video cables plug in but is instead the panel behind the motherboard.
  8. Hmm, not what we're after. On the opposite side of the case from the side panel that you removed to photograph the motherboard is another panel. remove that "back" panel and you'll have better visibility of the PSU, the PSU information sticker might be visible with the removal of the back panel. The image here shows the PSU information sticker on the side of the PSU. In this case, indicating a 650W psu along with some power rail information. unfortunately unless you know the make and model of the PSU there is no other way of telling the Wattage without finding the in
  9. I'm seeing PSU recommendations for a 2080super of around 550w minimum with a recommendation of 600-650. So if your PSU hits these marks you should be all set. if it's under powered it may still work if it has the connectors but you risk overdrawing the PSU which could cause system shutdowns/instability or potentially trip safety features in the PSU or potentially cause it to catch fire in a rare worst case scenario.
  10. PCIe connector: 6+2pin, when the 6 and 2 are combined they can be plugged into an 8 pin power connector, the 6pin without the +2 pugged in is the second connector you need, it may or may not have the additional 2pin hanging off the side. in total you need 1 8pin(6+2pin works) and 1 6pin PCIe connectors available.
  11. 1: are the PCIe connectors you need there 2: checking the PSU(power supply) wattage rating that is on the information sticker found on the PSU. you may be able to find that sticker by removing the back panel of the computer which may make the PSU visible to find that sticker.
  12. only concerns still being available PCIe power cables and enough PSU wattage.
  13. yes, that card will fit. your current card takes up 2 vertical slots as the new card will and there is plenty of clearance for card length inside the case. the final questions are: does your power supply have enough wattage to meet the new card's needs. does the power supply have PCIe power cables to match: one 8 pin connector and one six pin connector. from the picture i can see that the cable currently plugged into the card is a 6+2 pin cable(so an 8 pin), so verify that you have another 6pin PCIE connector available to power the new card and y
  14. can you post a picture of the front of the case and of the motherboard area after removing the side panel.
  15. Without knowing the case your build is in we cannot say for sure if this card will fit... that being said, your motherboard appears to be a standard ATX form factor and the blower style card you have listed will fit in the majority of ATX midtower cases, it's a two slot standard length card and is the most "standard" sized card you'll find.
