    In my brother’s store, electricity got cut off two or three times. Two PCs with identical hardware won’t turn on, but a third pc with different hardware survived. 


    I’ve used the pin method to check the psu fan and it works. What else should I check and how?



    boot lights if the PC's have those. it would be very nice if you can say what brand or and model they are.

    Thank you, will look into that :) the prices are a little weird in Denmark, so don’t know about everything yet

    o oke your from Denmark. then I would suggest a mercury 360 (RGB) aio. what most people are saying about your CPU/GPU bottleneck isn't true an i5-8600k OC will work fine with a 1080ti. my little brother is running an i5-8600k with a strix 1080ti and it just works fine even in CPU intensive games like GTA V, just cause 3, assassins creed syndicate and  Metro: Last Light.

    Asrock is technicly just a company from asus.


    Get a 8600k

    A good cooled 1070 ti or 1080 ti

    A dark rock pro 4 or a h100i v2

    16 gigs of ram at 3000+ mhz

    A big sata ssd

    A big hdd for other games

    An atx case like the h500(i)

    A good mobo from asus, msi, asrock or gigabyte with the z370 chipset

    Cx series are for the price great psus, at least the new one. The old ones were cheeply made


    technically you're a bit behind the facts as of 2010 ASRock is not from Asustek anymore it is owned by Pegatron.

    1. switch the cooler to an aio it will be better for overclocking
    2. asus boards are generally of a better quality than ASRock board
    3. I switch ram to slightly faster rgb modules
    4. I put an m.2 SSD an hdd in it it will be faster this way
    5. I recommend a p400 from phanteks or an p110 from antec.


    but overall your build is ok I would give it a 7 out of 10.

    max is only 280 unless you get the h700

    yea I see you have experience with AIO's, a 280 probably won't fit as 280 AIO's have a 2 or 3 cm reservoir on top of the rad. so they most likely will interfere with the buttons on top or simply won't fit.

    A top of the line air cooler , like a NH-D15 would be plenty. AIO's dont give that much mroe headroom, cost more, usualy noisier, and add points of failure. So unless ur using a small form factor case that cant fit a large heatsink, (the s340 is fine), then there really isnt much reason to get a AIO over a top end air cooler. I supose one could argue asthetics, but when your on a budget asthetics should come secondary to performance, besides some Air cooler looks nice, and any1 who knows anything about PC's can recognise and appreicate even a cooler like the NH-D15.

    1. not were the op asked for.
    2. you said that an air cooler like the NH-D15 would be all that better, and yea it could dissipate around the same heat as a 240mm AIO, but then you must hold in consideration the ram hight the case thickness and were the first pci slot is. and I don't know what it will do but it just doesn't feel good to hanging 1,32kg on a MOBO. also, you said "someone who knows anything about PC's can recognise and appreciate even a cooler like the NH-D15" so here is my question for you do you think those same guys can't appreciate an AIO? 
  6. no, a 240mm rad is the max for the s340 the fractal case u mentioned has 360mm support.

    get kraken x62 or maybe the corsair h110 v2.

    kraken x62 is too expensive in my opinion if you look to the European market a mercury 240 RGB from Antec would be €100 - €110 a Kraken x62 will cost €140 - €180 euro and there are in essentially the same cooler. the corsair h110 v2 I have heard lots of negative storeys about the ones I have heard were that the including brackets would bend to easily or would break off while screwing the cooler into place, or that the pump would die a month after the warranty has expired.

    My pc is pretty overkill for this game. Recommended specs are a GTX970 and I have sufficient ram (16GB).

    the devs have not jet released minimum specs for this game as far as I know, but that's common in beta stage as the still are optimizing the game.

  8. I can't tell you for sure until the minimal pc specs are released but it could be that your CPU is not powerful enough or you don't have enough ram. but as you have said it could also be an optimisation thing where the devs are still working on.

    this is a little more for your cash.


    and optane is meant for speeding up hard drives (HDD) not solid state drives (SSD).

    you probably wont need 32 gb of ram 

    that psu and mobo are really expensive

    the case is also expensive

    the air cooler is alright but I would go with an aio at this price point

    the SSD is overkill you would probably be fine with a 1tb HDD and a boot SSD
