  1. That leaves bleeding. I've bleed for my pc before, and I'll probably do it again.
  2. I'd elbow this somehow, knock it on the ground or bleed on it. Beautiful set though.
  3. Are there non RGB versions to save on cost? Also, I'd remove the fans anyways and use my Noctua fans. Edit; I'll add it to the original thread. I have my own Noctura fans, and don't want RGB if it saves cost.
  4. What's your motherboard? Questions get answered more fully when the specs are filled out in your profile or post a link from PCpartPicker.
  5. Can't say this is fully thought out, but here goes. I'm looking for a ton of mesh, no tempered glass, simple/clean in matte black. I use a Corsair 200R, and basically want it to have a usable front mesh panel. The 200R's front fan blows into a pocket with mesh side vents so thick that when the fan was disconnected the CPU, GPU, & MB showed zero change in temperature. I want a usable mesh front panel. Since the market is in love with tempered glass, the Master Cooler NR600 looks very nice. Any recommendations? Edit; I have my own Noctua fans, and don't w
  6. I've had my Corsair 200R since 2017 and I've been mostly happy with it. The only reason I thought to review it is to put into words my issues with air flow. The 200R comes with two stock fans; one in the front, and a second in the back. The front fan blows into a pocket between the front of the case and the fan. If that wording sounded odd, let me say it another way. The fan blows into a pocket and does nothing. The pocket has a vent on each side, but is so thick, the air can't get through. I disconnected the fan and have experienced zero difference in temperature from GPU&CPU. The ventila
  7. Yesterday I upgraded to a an Asus Tuf Gaming x570-Plus. After installation, I then installed the m.2 SSDs (Samsung 970 Evo 500GB &1TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive). The BIOS shows both of the 500GB &1TB. But I can't seem to access them in Windows Ten. I went to; Control Panel-->Administrative Tools--> Storage-->Disk Management... And see both the m.2 ssd listed as "Unallocated". What do I do?
  8. Ok, I downloaded Armoury Crate, and don't see the option for fan speed. There are options in YouTube vids that aren't on my app...
  9. I just installed my X570 Tuf, and want to control my fan's speed. I've got; - GPU fan 1080 ti by MSI; I use MSI afterburner for this one. - CPU fan; Noctua - 2 Noctua fans (top and back) - Corsair (Stock front) Do I have any options other than using the BIOS?
  10. I've been looking for a G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL14 Memory. but PCPartPicker doesn't list any vendors......Or a brand with the same specs, if they exist. But I'm concerned about price. Anyone know where they are being sold for non-ripoff prices?
  11. To be specific. I can put my Ryzen 7 3700X into the 570X. Load up my windows 10 and all. Then do the bios update, then pop in the Ryzen 9 5900X?
  12. Ok, wait. Can I update the bios with my current Ryzen 7 3700X? Or do I need a full pc with an older CPU?
  13. Wait, are you saying there's no way I can download the proper bios onto a thumb drive, then update the MB with the thumb drive? And I have a backup laptop, it's from 2009, but it works. Are you saying I can't use that either?
  14. Sounds good. Will add What's the benefit of the other motherboard? And I'll look for deals with the SSD's
