  1. Yeah, you'd think so but the noise is consistent across the entire spread of components so I can't actually identify what's making the most noise
  2. Hi I thought my original NZXT case fans were making my PC noisy but having replaced them with silent Noctua fans, even if I set them to 'off', it's still quite loud overall. I can even hear it through my headphones, especially if playing a game (when all the fans run). I think the PSU or the CPU cooler are to blame for the noise. What's the best option for replacements? Ideally, I'd like to order some of it from Amazon UK as I've got a few gift vouchers. Spec is: ASUS ROG Strix Z370-H Motherboard Intel i5 8600k with Hyper 212 evo Sapphire Nitro RX480 8
  3. Thanks, that looks pretty good. I think the i7 would last longer than the i5
  4. My current spec looks fine or my upgrade plans look fine? My current RAM is 1600mhz btw. I can't see my i5 lasting much longer really! I've given AMD graphics cards a fair shot but I still want to go back to NVIDIA at some point as they have better image quality and I just find the whole experience better. Therefore, I won't be investing in another AMD card at any point. I definitely want 16gb of ram. I (occasionally) run a few VMs to test stuff and always run out of RAM. Plus some games are definitely pushing it in terms of their RAM usage.
  5. That's interesting, when I did my own PC Part picker I ended up with nearly identical parts. Except I had an ASUS Motherboard!
  6. Hi Can I have some advice on upgrading please? I have a budget of about £600 and live in the UK. This is my current spec: Intel I5 2500k @ 4ghz ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 8GB DDR3 (G.Skill Ripjawz) RAM Corsair T750W PSU Sapphire Nitro RX480 (8GB) Various HDDs and SSDs ASuS Xonar DG Sound card NZXT S340 case Monitor: I will be using a 1080p,144hz (BenQ XL2411) monitor for now but possibly upgrading to 1440p at some point. The PC will mostly be used for playing games like: BF1 Assassins Creed Origins
