  1. Don't try it with casted ones, you will most likely destroy the fan. Most modern fans today come cast or closed, they sould be lubed up for their full life time. If your fans feel rough or make wierd noises than replace them completely or send them in if you still have warranty.
  2. Might be caused by mining but I think it's more likely that some kind of software (like windows, PUBG is also heavy RAM riliant btw make sure you close browsers etc.) is running in the background. It also may be the case that your "testing" is flawed as PUBG is a multiplayer game without a discrete benchmark, so you can't be sure for reliability on your testing. Taking PUBG for testing is also not the best idea since performance flactuates sometimes drasticly from patch to patch. But as I said most likely something in the background or a patch (driver update maybe?)
  3. I would try diffrent/better quality cables and maybe a different port
  4. Sounds like malware, software/Win 10 issues or a bad hard drive/ssd. I recomand backing up all important files on a external drive and making a clean windows install to hope for the best. Unless the CPU isn't basicly uncooled (so no thermal paste on the IHS or no cooler on top at all) meaning it's constantly throttling, a CPU or motherboard fault is unlikely. A bad motherboard is most of the time no post at all or some non functioning slots (so dead PCIe or RAM slots for example). A bad CPU is also most likly a no post error.
  5. I really liked the video. Nice that the seller except the return (I wonder if they just did that because the buyer was LTT and they didn't wanted the bad publicity)
  6. What ever is cheaper in your region, the mid to high sata SSDs perform very similar in a way that you most likely won't notice a difference. pick the best GB/$ ssd that fits your needs.
  7. Yeah it already looks so cramped. /s (the natural light thing is very reasonable and it would look bulky on a sleek minimalistic desk though) I honestly would never get a Apple Magic Keyboard (key travel hight, size, no num block, .. price) and would probably saved a bit monitor on the monitor arm, too (400$ is a kinda high price for a single one). But if you like if you like how they look and find yourself productive while using them thats fine I guess The whole package of course looks super clean and sleek and I really like that. Over all the minimalistic but natuaral room
  8. I can't help you very much but you should add some more Info for better results, like how much you pay for electricity in your region and if the rig can run 24/7 without disturb you
  9. You will be fine. That everything at the same time is in 100% use is also a very unlikely case (do use every USB port o your motherboard for example with devices that draw the full 2,5-10W on it, are your CPU, your GPU and all your hard drives at 100% use .. very ulikely. Those calculations numbers for power usage are also most of the time very relative values, rough estimates, TDP values and so on are no acurate power usage numbers.
  10. In many cases console ports are also poorly ported for the PC (Nier: Automata for example uses a ridiculous amount of horsepower on the PC,it doesn't utilize all threads on the CPU, has some VRM loops on the GPU side etc.) , these games get released all the time this way. Or things like the DRM software in the game cause trouble on the PC, it tanks the whole system even all the time and may also have problems with antivirus software (thanks Ubisof for the bad performance of AC Origins by various DRMs ). A console doesn't has these problems, it doesn't have to be optimized for more than th
  11. The PS4 is generally speaking by the current pricepoint faster/cheaper than a complete PC setup (it's already . But it runs not every game in 4k, some only upscaled 4k and others only in 1080p. It also matters which PS4 you have (PS4<PS4 Slim<PS4 Pro). But if you have a PC (with mouse, keyboard and screen) it may be worth it to upgrade something to get better framerates. PS: You also don't need 4k if you don't have a TV/Monitor to use it.
  12. I would say drop the Asus one the 768p is just ... The 4720HQ sould be more or less the same speed wise, but may drain a bit more power (aka a bit less bettery life)
  13. It is most likely that you either loosen (or forget) to plug your 4/8pin CPU power plug back in or that one of your RAM sticks isn't 100% pluged in. Happens to me everytime on these 1 side snapping RAM slots and every time I freak out that I broke something.
  14. What ever fits your budget, both will run any current game more or less decently, the 1060 is a bit better but go only for the 6gb version. I bought my little brother the Asus GTX 1060 6gb Strix OC and it seams to work like a charm is very quiet (at least quieter as my EVGA GTX 1080 TI SC black edition :P)
  15. Intel FCBGA-1168 B= Ball G= Grid A= Array aka soldered on. It may be somewhat possible to swap this CPU but not by a normal person without the specific soldering tools and knowledge, it may be locked on in the bios, too. So sell this old one used online and get a new one for an upgrade I guess.
