  1. Hello! I can't find this in any documentation, and can't find it online. Does anyone that have this case answer: Can the Silent Base 801 fit both a 420mm slim radiator, and a 360mm standard (30-35mm) radiator? Thanks!
  2. 1st "GPU": Integrated graphics on your CPU. Usually used when on the desktop, doing web browsing, etc. and will consume less power from your battery than the dGPU. 2nd GPU: Dedicated GPU (dGPU). Used when you play games. Should be switching between automatically based on your workload.
  3. Also, I believe that the 2700 ~= 3600 in terms of performance, so that was not the best use of dollars in terms of an upgrade. And I agree, without verifying you're running the same settings, it's pretty much impossible to know if something is wrong. You could double check your numbers against the stickied post in this section of the forum (make sure to use the same settings as they did as well)
  4. IMO: I prefer headphones and external mic. Just because "gaming headsets" almost always have broken within 8 months of me owning them. Always between the band and the earpiece. My headphones that I have now (HIFIMAN not sure model) and my mic (blue yeti) have both worked flawlessly since I got them and haven't broke yet (1.5 years with them) - and they were USED.
  5. @Killtson How is your airflow around your motherboard? Maybe your VRMs/Memory is getting way too hot?
  6. He is OC, up to 5.0GHz all core. But yeah, try for 1.3V. My 8700K is 5.0GHz all core on 1.29 I think?
  7. So what? IMO expensive motherboards are extremely overrated if you're not trying for extreme over-clocks where the additioanl cooling becomes important. Buy the cheapest board that has all the features that you want (M.2 slots, size) IMO.
  8. Holy shit - I am pretty noob when it comes to OC but 1.4V is way too high. Throttle that back to 1.35V at least.
  9. @ManosMax13 The idea that I like the best so far, is getting a piece of 5/8" (maybe overkill) plywood and cutting it to the width of the support for the upper bunk. Mount the VESA mount with the screws to the plywood, then clamp the wood to the bed frame. Hopefully this makes sense? I attached a picture with my explanation.
  10. I have the non-opaque red EK coolant. Working really well so far. @Tom G
  11. Well, depends if it is a decent model from a reputable company.
  12. No, you're fine. Edit: To clarify, the power supply knows to only supply the amount of power to the components that they can handle. The only thing here the inefficiency of a $400 (? guessing at price) PSU with a $200 CPU and $200 GPU.
  13. Hey, looks good! I'm thinking of doing the same thing, but I couldn't think of what to use for the frame. What did you use? It looks like aluminum, but how did you attach all the pieces together? Thanks!
  14. I see a hard drive not connected!
