  1. I can not give you a guide, but searching for dual boot windows 10 should improve your results
  2. When overclocking it's best to test in as many different programs as possible to ferret out any instability, as you've experienced, stable in one thing doesn't mean stable in everything. Now +75/80 isn't going to make a big difference, but should get you a few more fps's (I'd expect low single digit increases for AAA games, and low double digits for something like cs:go)
  3. https://modmymods.com/fittings/flow-rate-pressure-sensors.html?dir=desc&limit=all&order=price Not too bad
  4. you can always spend some time crawling aliexpress, they probably have something(s)
  5. liquid metal has risks. unless you're delidding a cpu to replace the tim to the ihs (non-soldered), or gpu cooling the benefits are lesser and the risks greater Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is a good non-electrically conductive option
  6. no, a 120mm aio is good enough for the scrap bin and not much else. Most 240mm AIO's are comparable in performance to the bigger air coolers like the Noctua D15, or the Dark Rock Pro 4 E: Wait non-k.... still don't believe a 120mm is up to the task, but a decent $30-40 tower cooler should work if watercooling isn't a must
  7. If built to the same quality and design standards, no. Checked a couple reviews, looks competent
  8. the tiers are about psu quality, how well it performs to it's claimed rating in proper operating conditions, not your system components. Methodology and details can be found here but you may have to do some homework to make sense of it. As mentioned rtx 3000 series has power spike issues, these can trigger safety features on a psu (system shut down) so better to err a little high on wattage
  9. They can't risk doing a release right now and ending up selling out too quick, be patient while they build up supply
  10. This one should be capable. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/6Y66Mp/corsair-rm-2019-750-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020195-na There's a psu tier list pinned in the psu section of the forum https://linustechtips.com/forum/21-power-supplies/
  11. Psu failure can fry components...
  12. putting the rad at the top will likely result in a small increase in cpu temps and lower gpu temps... any way to draw air in from the bottom (thought process: put air under gpu)
  13. technically that extra 4 pin is not required, but I fear you may run into erratic issues with that setup, a better psu would be best
  14. Bios -Peripherals -Initial display output (igfx for onboard, pcie for gpu)
  15. Try bridging clear cmos pins on bottom edge of board for ~5sec with pc power off, then try booting
