  1. Ok, so I will have to see if it does something. I was just worried cause it got insanely hot and I couldn't feel any air whatsoever. I'd assume adding fans top isn't necessary, cause it would interfere with my CPU Cooler.
  2. Hey guys, I need more space for parts and since the other cases I wanted (Phanteks P500A or Lian Lancool 2 Mesh) are sold out everywhere, I was thinking of the Meshify 2. The Meshify 2 can have 3x 140mm in the front and a 140mm as an Exhaust, instead of 2x 140mm front and 1x120mm exhaust like the Meshify C. I am aware that the third Fan would/will blow some air under the PSU shroud, but would that be counterd a bit by the holey shroud under the GPU?. I was looking at the GN Review, but it isn't helpful since the standardized testing is only 2x 140mm fro
  3. I had found out that I got 2 noises, one was dependend on the placement of my case. I had it on some rubber mat and since I put my PC on the parquet, one of the sounds has never occurred again, which was a even weirder screeching noise, which I could remove for a while by moving my case a small bit. In my case it's the GPU. Removing it and using a old Geforce 9500GS or the Intel HD Graphics and it was gone. Sadly I just never have the time especially now to be without a GPU, as I need it for my studies. The PSU did nothing in my case, I tried the BeQuiet Straight Power Platinum 750w. Hope it h
  4. Ordered one, guess I'm just gonna need to try.
  5. Specs: CPU: i7 8700k: 4.7 Ghz 1.23v RAM: Corsair Vengeance 3200MHZ 32GB Mobo: Asus Maximus X Hero GPU: EVGA 2080 FTW3: 2100 Core, 8000 Memory PSU: Corsair RM750x I was on a LAN a few days ago and my PC was connected to a Power Line that died out of nowhere. I had a small noise problem before with my GPU but it wasnt this intense, only a slight noise that went away after I repositioned my PC. It could've been vibrations from my floor matt that is on a somewhat uneven wooden floor. But now it is that way whenever my GPU is hit with a load (doesnt ma
  6. With Fastboot: 1m23s; 1m18s; 1m18s Without : 1m28s; 1m29s; 1m29s Btw, I measure from the moment I click the power button, until I can see the desktop screen. The screen with the prompts takes 15 secs, thought I changed the length, but it doesn't affect it appearantly. Settings are the same, nothing reset. No POST error.
  7. It remembers it, also all the settings (CPU OC, XMP Profile, RAM settings and the fans aswell). Tho I found something while I was waiting for a reply. I had to remove like up to 40 boot option entrys, they just came again and again. With that I mean for example I saw the Windows Boot Manager pop up many times. On the picture I added you can see how it now looks like.
  8. I took the time needed for Booting with and without the Drives (except for the 970, can't just remove it easily as that). Boot with Drives: 1m24s; 1m23s; 1m23s Boot without: 1m26s; 1m24s; 1m25s I did multiple runs.
  9. I didn't quite know where to post my problems, since it includes multiple issues and parts while booting, so I hope it's fine here. If not please let me know! First and foremost my specs: OEM: Windows 10 64bit OEM Key CPU: i7 8700k Mobo: Asus Maximus X Hero RAM: 32GB 3200mhz GPU: EVGA 2080 FTW3 PSU: RM750x Storage: 1x Samsung 850 250gb (OS and Programs) 2x Samsung 860 500gb and 1x Samsung 970 500gb (I have my online and favourite games on the 860's, and move others on the 970) 1x 2tb WD Black and 1x 6tb WD Black (I have a lot of gam
  10. Here's the thing: After having yet another one of the worst IPS-Panels I could've gotten I'm seeking some opinions. I loved the LG 27GL850-B, great colors, didn't see anything relating to the contrast issue, absolutely smooth and stunning in general. But I'm kinda dissapointed not only because of the classic issues (horrendous BLB), but also more from the support. They try their hardest not to see the quite obvious BLB in the pictures I send, which are also ones from in-game, where you can see it clearly. I had ordered a second one, which was only sligh
  11. I have DT990 Pro 250 Ohm's and ran em like 3 days trough my Motherboard (Asus Maximus X Hero) before I bought an FiiO K3. It was a difference of night and day. Especially because they were too quiet IMO. You can try and see if it's enough and then still get a good budget DAC/AMP combo if needed. You could also instead get a lower Ohm version.
  12. It worked, that's what it did. Same scenario the gpu is 65°C with 50% Fan Curve max, sometimes goes as high as 70°C but it pretty much worked. It just never occured to me since most oc guides just say: "Crank you power limit and fans to max, then test around with Core and Memory. Afterwards adjust fans accordingly." I didn't think about lowering PL but it dit the trick. Thanks!
  13. Lately I have a real problem with my GPU temps. especially now in summer my EVGA 2080 FTW3 gets way to hot (85°C = GPU-Fans 40%, 78°C = GPU-Fans 60%). The only way to fix it is having the fans be at least on 80% or more and then it is still around 72°C even if it's colder in the evening (around 13~16°C ambient most of the time) it doesn't really get any better and I don't know what's wrong. The only thing I figured by testing is that the GPU maybe doesn't get enough fresh air. When I hold my hand in the case I can feel that the air from the front fan barely gets to the middle of th
