  1. I see, that makes sense too, it'd be easy enough to add 2 more fans if needed?
  2. Aah OK, that's good to know, thanks! It's a 5900X / Asus 3080 Ti with 850w power supply. I can go find the invoice if need more detail. If it ran too hot, more front fans would be the way forward? Or would that throw the balance of push/pull off? (if that makes sense)
  3. Out of the box, the case has 2 fans on the front but it seems they moved one of them to the rear. I am not knowledgeable about fan configuration at all, so just wondered whether this looks OK. I think the radiator placement is fine at the top? Will that single fan at the front be sufficient? Not sure why they moved one to the rear if the top has two (I assume?) exhausting air?
  4. I've had a prebuilt system on preorder since January and have been told it will arrive late June. I was disappointed because I have seen customer reviews for this company who are using the same specs as mine, getting theirs much quicker so I am suspecting they messed up with parts allocation for my order or something at some point. Would you wait it out until June or would you cancel and wait for something better to come along? Specifically it's a 5900X/RTX3080 build, replacing a Haswell i7 and GTX980.

Compared to the Realtek one? I'll probably just use the Realtek one anyway, like others said I doubt it would make any noticeable difference.
  6. Hello! My motherboard has two ethernet ports, one is a 2.5Gbps Realtek RTL8125-CG, the other is a 1Gbps Intel I211-AT. I do not have a router or switch which supports anything higher than 1Gbps. The product page for the motherboard says "Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power." Does this mean it would be better for my system to use the Intel LAN? Because the same page also says for the Realtek connection "experience smoother, lag-free gaming" which would indicate to me that it would be better i
