  1. There are plenty of perfectly good mATX cases out there in terms of airflow. The Thermaltake Versa H18, Thermaltake Core V21 and Fractal Meshify C Mini all come to mind immediately, and there are loads of others. IMO, the Q300L is a dumpster fire, and that's from using one. Your system should be fine with 2 in, 2 out. Play with your fan curves in BIOS if you need to, but I think the problem is your case. The 3070 is a toasty card, and the Q300L is a great toaster oven.
  2. So Amazon is littered with stuff like this, which is cool, because I need something like that for work. Thing is, there are lots of much cheaper options out there with 15.6" 1080p IPS displays for a whole lot less than that Samsung...but they all have Chinese brand names (or AOC). Does anyone here have experience with one of those portable displays or another, or can recommend/dissuade me from crappy ones?
  3. The Master Box Q300L is a space heater no matter what you do. Ditto that for its bigger ATX brother. Just a terrible implementation of a case. I'd flip your back fan to exhaust as well, but that's about all you can do in that pizza oven.
  4. What fans do you have? How many? 3 or 4 pin?
  5. Don't give them any ideas about what to do with Maxwell. I'm still running a GTX 750 Ti in my hybrid XP/HTPC and my backup desktop card is a 960 lol NVIDIA's history of when to end driver support for card architectures has always been a bit haphazard, imo. If it was a strategic thing, they would have dropped it right before RTX 3000 released or right before announcing an RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050. Both of those would probably be at least on part with a 690 or a 780 Ti. ...are they on the verge of doing that? "Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the p
  6. Didn’t that have more to do with a bad DX12 implementation on Fermi than anything else? It will. IMO, Kepler cards were (and are) rock solid. No they didn’t. You can still use it forever, it just won’t get driver updates.
  7. This didn't happen with Fermi, and I think it's even less likely to happen with Kepler. When Fermi was retired, it was easy as pie to go out and get a GTX 1050 Ti to replace your GTX 5anything. With Kepler's retirement happening right now when it's impossible to find anything good and even GT 710s cost $65 to buy new, the people still running Kepler either can't afford a better replacement than what they have, or they don't feel like upgrading is important enough to pay the premium for it. The flood gates will remain tightly closed.
  8. TT and Zalman had a competition going for “weirdest cooler” back in the day.
  9. I own a set of Aigo RGB fans, and they’re good enough for what they are. Just in general, if a cooler on Amazon from a no-name brand looks like someone was tripping on acid when they designed it, don’t buy it.
  10. Amazon is full of random, weird cooler designs from companies you've never heard of, and they all suck.
  11. 1. To hold them in place. 2. To keep Pakleds from inserting them backwards and bugging customer support with, "My computer is broken. Can you make it go fast?".
  12. Haven’t used the Lian-Li. I used the Meshify C for a couple of years and loved it to death. Outstanding airflow, but with all airflow cases, the trade off is a little extra noise.
  13. Fractal Meshify is basically the default answer.
