  1. My Asus 1660 ti Dual OC runs at 86c with the factory overclock. I messed about with the fan curves to see if I could get it to run cooler but tbh the only thing that makes it run cooler is setting the max temp to 75c and putting up with lower performance.
  2. It's the better cpu for his use case scenario, he does explain that his system is for gaming for which the 10600k is a lot better than the 3700x and the op doesn't seem to require 8 cores. No need to jump on anything that isn't AMD as an option.
  3. It shouldn't matter but since it's a first boot in a new build it would be better to have the ram in the correct channels.
  4. If you are just gaming this bundle from scan.co.uk is pretty good for a 10600k, mobo and ram https://www.scan.co.uk/products/3xs-z490-hardware-bundle-intel-core-i5-10600k-comet-lake-asus-prime-z490-p-16gb-ddr4
  5. Your RAM is in the wrong slots in that video, use the same colour slots. iirc the manual said to use the blue ones.
  6. I had exactly the same with my H110i, the pump was still working but at very slow speed. Could have been blocked pipes or rad but I never bothered finding out, just went back to air since it was out of warranty.
  7. It will still work as windows 10 OS allowing him to back up his files. He might have problems reactivating windows licence and it's also a very good idea to do a clean install especially to a new platform.
  8. Looks like your cpu is getting a bit hot, are you using the stock cooler?
  9. I had the 34 Duo on my Ryzen 3600 first, kept the temps down nicely around 65c on a stress test. It's on my 9400f now which maxes out at 59c in stress test. I can't compare it to the Noctua as I've never had one but it certainly does the job!
  10. Sorry, my mistake! It seems strange that your CPU is struggling so much. What cooler have you got on the CPU? It might not be boosting if temps are getting too high.
  11. If you are worried about your GPU temps you can use the EVGA Precision X1 software to tune it to run cooler. My Asus 1660 ti was set a target temps of 85c by default so I wound it back to 75c instead with the Asus software and with a bit of tinkering with the fan curves I get the same performance at less heat but a bit more noise.
  12. You don't need to attach it at all the points in the case, just make sure it's held securely by the ones that do line up once the IO shield is in place.
  13. Have I got out of touch over the last few months? I've been talking to a guy about his 10600k gaming build on this thread and I want to know what you all think - is a $200 2tb SSD a better option than a 500gb nvme and a 2tb HDD for $120?
