  1. Yes, google works at times to intentionally hurt other web browsers(edge, firefox, ect) performance through their immense influence over protocols and web traffic. ... they also ditched their motto "don't be evil" https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/12/the-web-now-belongs-to-google-and-that-should-worry-us-all/
  2. Meshify C does have great airflow, it is however limited in 3.5in drive space, if that matters to you. It also has a smaller footprint that many ATX cases, which I like. Keep in mind that an especially large GPU card could have clearance issues with it's length, just check on Fractal's website for maximum supported length compared to your GPU size. Just for more info, what is the make and model of your GPU. Your GPU seems... hot but that could be an airflow issue you are currently trying to correct.

    Vsync locks your GPU's sequential image production and output (frames per second) to the same rate that the monitor displays them, in many cases that is 60hz, or 60 frames per second. The up sides are: there will be no screen tearing: this means without vsync when new image arrives to the display in the middle of posting the previous image it will begin using the new image while still in the middle of posting the previous image on the screen, this means part of the screen will be the first image and part of the screen will be the second image and the images are different so th
  4. In order to install this cooler onto your GPU, it does require disassembly of the card down to the PCB (the electronics board). in some cases this is as simple as removing the 4 GPU cooler retention screws and unplugging the fans and LED's, there is the possibility that there could be more involved as I am unfamiliar with the current gigabyte coolers. after removing the old cooler you'll have to install the new cooler, this may require thermal paste application by hand if it does not come pre-spread on the water pump coldplate. The above steps do require some care and c
  5. It will fit, it will likely lower your temps, is it worth it... if you want to try it and don't mind taking your stuff apart, sure!
  6. If the H80i is the best performing option on that list that will fit in your case then it would be reasonable to expect an approximately 7deg C drop while overclocked and using a synthetic stress test, the above circumstances being the worst case temperature producing scenario, with lighter, less intense processing loads the temperature difference will not be as great.
  7. air coolers work well, especially good ones. the h80 is similar to the nh-d15 and likely the dark rock. most high end CPU coolers will perform within a few degrees of one another. the limiting factors becomes the rate heat transfer from the cpu to the cooler and the fact that more cooling surface cant make up for the ever decreasing delta in room temp vs cooler temp
  8. The card that i listed is not a "turbo" or "blower" style graphics card, the cooling on the blower style cards is not as good because of the size of the cooling solution compared to the aftermarket solutions. The card i listed is a standard 2 slot internal waste heat producing card. If you are interested in thermals, there is also a 3 slot solution with a larger cooler (basically as large as most cards get) that can be found here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487411&Description=2070&cm_re=2070-_-14-487-411-_-Product If t
  9. EVGA is great, the card has excellent cooling, but... it's $547 for a 1070Ti. If we're talking in the U.S. I would jump on this first: RTX 2070 for $499.00 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487416&Description=2070&cm_re=2070-_-14-487-416-_-Product
  10. to quote Anandtech: To start, Pascal clockspeeds are much more temperature-dependent than on Maxwell 2 or Kepler. Kepler would drop a single bin at a specific temperature, and Maxwell 2 would sustain the same clockspeed throughout. However Pascal will drop its clockspeeds as the GPU warms up, regardless of whether it still has formal thermal and TDP headroom to spare. This happens by backing off both on the clockspeed at each individual voltage point, and backing off to lower voltage points altogether. To quantify this effect, I ran LuxMark 3.1 continuously for several minutes
  11. This is correct, pascal cards usually hit 2 to 2.2 Ghz depending on silicon lottery so your clocks are good. as i stated before, GPU clock speeds do not work the same way as CPU clock speeds. a CPU will run at the speed to tell it to until it can no longer operate(crashes) Nvidia GPU's use an underlying Clock speed adjuster that take into account 3 main things and it will adjust clock speeds on its own and it is NOT under your control: temperature, power draw and voltage as temperature goes up, clock speeds will drop at specified points as p
  12. An increased temperature limit is not likely to help, What you are describing is normal operation for Nvidia's GPU boost 3.0, the only way to maintain the higher clocks is to reduce temperature otherwise GPU boost will automatically down clock as temperatures go up. Some options for helping this: 1: raise your fan speed 2: help a healthy supply of cool air reach the GPU to assist cooling 3: reapply thermal paste with higher quality paste, like conductonaut or noctua NT-H1 4: purchase a larger aftermarket cooler to help low
  13. agreed, My take: buy a used 1080Ti and then sell your 1070
  14. Notice I said UP TO 1.3v, he's looking for help and some recommendations. I know you understand overclocking, what you've said has been unhelpful to the OP's request, I'm happy for your luck in your own personal silicon lottery 8700k. It would be useful to the OP if you shared your personal overclocking recommendations for his situation given your own setup and experience.
  15. up to 1.4v is what many consider safe, temps will get a bit crazy at that voltage though. the lower the better, but up to 1.3v can produce more controllable temps (i aim for under 90c stress testing) you'll settle on a max voltage and therefore temp that you're comfortable with as you go start but upping the multiplier one notch at a time, i generally sync all cores and set the voltage to something like 1.3v stress test until you crash or temps are too high and start adjusting the voltage up or down in .01v increments till your stability/temps co
  16. I would reuse the included thermal pads that came with the card. Reason being: the thermal pads need to be the proper thickness to properly fit in the space between the part being cooling and the cooler it is transferring the heat to. if you get the wrong thickness thermal pads it could potentially not transfer heat due to not enough thickness or potentially interfere with the cooler or plate fully seating on other components due to too much thickness causing it not to sit properly. The stock thermal pads should be just fine, just be careful when replacing the past
  17. At will employment is not a problem, it's life no matter what millennials think they're entitled to. not having paid vacation is not normal but still a 1st world problem, i'm fine with unpaid vacation, the employee also needs to be conscious that their employers specific needs to its customers and thusly the employee needs to be reasonable in taking their vacations, not just demanding they be catered to regardless of the company's needs. FMLA eligibility requires the following criteria: The employee must have been employed with the company for 12 months. The empl
  18. These lazy workers skate by at companies with uncaring/incompetent/lazy HR and management, they do not last at companies with competent HR and management. I have worked for both types of companies and seen the stark difference between them. Unions add another layer of protection for incompetence, unions started off with good intentions, unions can still do good, unions have long since passed from public sector commonality because of the enormous improvements in the workplace in the past 100 years.
  19. Good for them, I'm not advocating for abusive action on either side, better pay and benefits are good but they should be based upon individual performance in the form of quality of work, performance, and production. The goal of any good employer to employee relationship is that the employee provides more income for the company via their performance than their cost of performing the work they do, that's how the company makes money, making money for performing services is what the employee does and what the employer does for their customers. The more valuable the employee is by prod
  20. Care to share your grievances about certain short comings that you have in mind? US dept of labor worker protection laws summary: Here What protections above and beyond the items listed above would you find reasonable and necessary?
  21. My take: In the US, Unions once had a purpose, to provide an effective countermeasure to the enormous monopolies(not talking about the current google, facebook, twitter, ect) who completely controlled entire industries. In the US, workers protections under the law are very good, Unions now operate more like the Mafia, they use intimidation and harassment against non union members(regularly destroying and vandalizing non union work trucks and stealing their equipment), they work to protect dead weight(incompetent, unwilling and blatantly uncaring) workers employment, t
  22. My opinion since money expenditure is already in crazytown, this will eliminate cooling concerns and give you great performance. Website: Here Plus: Here
  23. FYI: those are with an intel 7900x @4.5 ghz you may see a lower fps result especially at higher fps with your current processor and clock speed.
  24. here you go: pick your desired resolution and minimum desired FPS and choose a card.
