  1. The 280X isn't exactly small form factor - if you want something really compact, I'd recommend something like this: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $319.99 @ Newegg CPU Cooler Noctua NH-L12S 55.44 CFM CPU Cooler $49.90 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI B450I GAMING PLUS MAX WIFI Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard $122.99 @ Amazon
  2. Keep in mind that the backplate is basically pressed against the back of the GPU core, and doesn't get much active airflow, so it's going to naturally run pretty warm. It's not something you really need to worry about - if it's not instantly giving you a bad burn, it's not hot enough to damage your components.
  3. Having your cooler close to your GPU won't affect either component adversely in any way. Your temps might be a degree higher, but it's not going to make any real-world difference.
  4. Yes, it'll fit, it'll just look a little lonely in such a large case.
  5. I'd much rather have a good 650W than a middling 750W, and 650W is more than enough for a 3070.
  6. Good luck finding a 3080 at $925 AUD - MSRP is $1200. Also, a note- that board doesn't have BIOS flashback afaik so you'd need a spare CPU to update it for Ryzen 5000. I'd probably go for something like this: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor $687.50 @ Newegg Australia CPU Cooler ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports DUO CPU Cooler $99.99 @ Amazon Australia
  7. If I recall correctly, most overclocking on Core2 era chips was done by adjusting the base clock, so you might be able to use that.
  8. If those were your core temps, I'd suspect the graphics memory (which is typically not monitored) was running out of spec and gave up. Unless your GPU was defective, those temps shouldn't cause a problem.
  9. The only cheaper board I see that meets all those requirements (except for the PCIe slots, but the X570-E doesn't either) is the X570 PGX: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3bvqqs/asrock-x570-phantom-gaming-x-atx-am4-motherboard-x570-phantom-gaming-x
  10. The CPU manufacturers design their CPUs to be able to handle the stresses they'd experience within their rated temperature range. As long as your temps aren't objectively bad, you don't have too much to worry about.
  11. Have you tried taking off the SLI bridge? I'd kinda suspect that the Titan Z thinks it's supposed to be SLIing as a single Titan Black. Also, are you sure the slot you have it in offers a full x16 of bandwidth?
  12. If you open up GPU-Z, what does the GPU core config show up as? Most of these cards are GTS 450s afaik, the cap layout looks roughly right for a GF106 GPU:
  13. Response to the Response to the Response: People arguing about every tiny thing LMG does is more annoying than anything LMG does.
  14. I believe XMP is called DOCP on Asus AMD boards. Do you have an option for that?
