  1. To Clarify my statement further, I could buy a CPU/MOBO combo for £50 but it would be DDR3 and wouldn't make the most of the potential performance of the GTX 1060. I am looking for best performance at my Price Point.
  2. Hello All, I have recently rebuilt my computer doing alot of upgrades and have been left with a plethora of spare parts. The first thing I changed was the CPU and motherboard many months before I touched anything else and sold the old components. It was previously paired with an i5 6500 and a MSI B150A Gaming Pro Mobo. The parts I have currently are as follows: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 3gb G.Skill Ripjaws 2400mhz DDR4 NZXT Source 530 ATX Case Corsair CX600 Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo All I am missing to complete a second build (For Resale) is a motherboard and CPU.
  3. Hello, I currently use in my system a Corsair H100x AIO to cool my i5 9600K. It does a stellar job and I have no complaints about the performance. As stock, the Corsair H100x comes with a white LED which for the most part doesn’t look too bad although it can be a little blinding at night but nothing too distracting. For most people who won’t know, my build is themed black and red (please see pictures) and as you can see it does stick out like a sore thumb so my questions are as follow: 1. What’s the best way to trial how it would look with a RED
  4. Brilliant Cheers, Its not like I can see it but its just annoying knowing its the only fan spinning of the 3, god bless OCD lmao.
  5. Hello All, I have recently purchased an RTX 2070 Super for my build, however I have noticed when it reaches betwen 35-40 degrees (usually idling or under small loads) the Left Fan and ONLY the left fan starts spinning. I use the NZXT CAM software to monitor my components and it doesn't register the fan as having spun up on there. A similar thing happened with the Gigabyte GTX 1060 OC 3gb I had prior to my RTX 2070 Super where only one of the two fans would spin up under low or no load. I do not have any Overclocking software currently in place and have recently format t
  6. What about the whole thing with AMD CPU's needing higher frequency Memory to function to their full potential?
  7. @Tristerin @Radium_Angel Thank you both for the advice I will take a look at some videos now. If it doesn’t make much of a difference then what is the point in spending money on upgrading RAM speed at all? Why not everyone just buy the cheaper 2400mhz stuff?
  8. Hello All, As promised, I am now looking to upgrade my RAM. I am looking to increase the speed of my RAM in a Hope to increase performance. (If it makes much of an effect at all) I Currently have G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory. I am looking for at least 16gb of RAM, must be DDR4 and be either RED or BLACK, or RGB. Clearance is not an issue as I am using watercooling. Rest of my PC Specs are below should anyone require them. Budget for this is roughly £100-£120. Amazon preferred as always but open to anywhere! All Suggestions are welcome!
  9. Effectively yeah, so the first build is my well... my first build. Build 2.0 is a mix of parts installed and parts to be installed. ie: The CPU, Mobo and AIO have been installed already along with the additional case fans and the SSD. The RTX 2070 Super is yet to be installed, As Ideally despite my original post I don't want to spend more than £500 knowing they sold it for £480 before and it has been relisted for £500 on PC World so I am waiting for that to restock. I thought it best to include it as otherwise it wouldn't have an accurate watt read out. The case is soon to
  10. I feel like the RM650x Covers all of my needs so thank you very much for showing me PC world has them, I had no Idea! @seon123 is there anywhere that does sleeved cables for this that you can recommend? Preferably para-cord and relatively inexpensive? Metal combs would be nice too but obviously I expect to pay a premium if everything is to be met.
  11. Shhhh I'm not that clever haha Try Now: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Millsy_001/saved/#view=jLDF8d
  12. Hello All, I am looking to make an archive of parts over quarantine to purchase (Not all at once) so I can slowly upgrade my Rig. I have already addressed the GPU and decided to go for a RTX 2070 Super, The Case - A NZXT 710 and now we move onto PSU. (Next Week, RAM!) I am looking for something which will meet the following criteria: Must be: - Able to Capably power the PC with some headroom for future upgrades (RAM Mainly but maybe a second GPU, who knows) - Under £100 - Fully Modular - A Tier or above on the PSU Tier List:
  13. For some reason I didn't see that on my initial search but it meets all the boxes. Probably passed over it as the initial images look like it has no upper ventilation, or I got it confused with the H510 which only has upper cooling for a 120mm Rad. Prior to what I originally put I meant 240mm Rad not 120mm.
  14. Hello All, I am currently rocking a NZXT Source 530 and in the future once all of my components have been upgraded I would like to look into getting a new case. I have taken a brief look around on Amazon, Scan and the likes but can't seem to find anything that particularly fits the things I am looking for. I would like to know if anyone has any hidden gems that fit my criteria which I have listed below: Must Haves: - Tempered Glass Side Panel - Metal Chassis (Not a Fan of Plastic cases) - Mid/Full tower to fit an ATX Boar
