  1. I'll just buy a 3.1 to usb 2.0 adapter and plug it in USB 2.0 pin on my motherboard. If I want to use 3.1 or 3.0 connections I have enough on my rear I/O.
  2. Hey guys, I finished my build yesterday, everything went smootly except for the 2 USB 3.1 ports on the top of my case. I can't plug the female header from the case to the motherboard. The header on the motherboard is on the bottom (micro-atx board, asus tuf b450m-pro gaming) I have a Corsair 280x case and I put the 2 120 mm fans included with the case on the bottom. The USB 3.1 from the case is too big and either I can't plug it in, either I remove a fan... Anyone knows if their is some kind of adapter I could use?
  3. Hey guys, I'm trying to help a friend find a good monitor under 150$ CAD. Used for playing on a PS4 and use as a second monitor for a macbook pro. I found a BenQ GW2283 for 119$ on NewEgg that seems pretty good. Trying to avoid TN pannels as they don't have the best viewing angles. Sadly I can't find a Acer SB220q anywhere. Thanks
  4. The M version! Thanks for the help. Now waiting another month for the 2070 Super Founders Edition to be back in stock. They sold out in like 5 mins today...
  5. hanks. I guess I'll keep it then. Maybe use a short riser cable if I need clearance for the fans?
  6. Hi guys, so this might seem like a noob question, but I can't find the answer on google (french native so maybe I don't formulate it very good). I bought a Corsair 280x case and with my motherboard (Asus b450 pro gaming) my GPU will fit in the 2nd case bracket. I will likely return it for one that the GPU will fit in the 1st bracket, but how do I know it will? Is there any specs that tells it? Thanks
  7. It as always been like that with AMD. I had a computer with amd gpu in 2010 and some games were really buggy.
  8. Will do. My first build was on the cheap end. I had a FX-6300 CPU (not bad at the time) and 16 gig DDR3 1.8 MHz Ram. I was running a GTX 660 playing mostly Diablo 3. But now D4 is announced and I want to get this sucker up to at least 60 FPS on 2k resolution. I think the 2070 Super will hold up good and I'm also juggling between the CPU a Ryzen 5 3600x (cheaper on amazon canada right now then the 3600? I don't know why) or a Ryzen 7 3700x.
  9. Once again thanks a lot for you time. It's my first build in 5 or 6 years and I really fell in love with the case and everything I chose is around it. The builds I saw all had case in the front. I will be using 6 cases fans. The 2 from the case will be on top and 2 in front and bottom will be Corsair AF140. I'm still on the fence about what 2070 super to buy. The Asus 2070S-08G (https://www.google.com/shopping/product/13741375776433931213?q=2070+super&newwindow=1&rlz=1C1MSNA_enCA701CA701&sxsrf=ALeKk02PkT1Jvc2-z2rMb-63kG_UNKEQVg:1585243168647&biw=1920&bih=969&prds=epd:11
  10. Thanks for the info. I watch a lot of builds inside this case before buying it and saw that pretty much every GPU fit in the case. I went on PCpartPicker and watch tons of builds using this case and It seems to not be an issue a lot. I have about 700$ CAD before taxes budget so pretty much a 2070 Super. I was still holding out on the new generation of NVIDIA before buying and by then I will have also more money aside for maybe a 3070 if it's worth it.
  11. I was thinking air cool only. Thanks for the input tho.
  12. The case fit GPU up to 300mm wide. According to this build a 2080ti fits with 2 140mm fans on the bottom https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/pPLJ7P
  13. Hi everyone, i'm currently building my new gaming PC on the Corsair Crystal 280x Case. I was aiming for a 2070 Super card or a rx5700xt (although I might just wait for the new 30 series reveal by NVIDIA), but I was wondering considering the ''smaller'' case. Should I go with a blower fan or no? Thanks
  14. Do you know if I should get a CPU cooler? I've read online the stock cooler for the Ryzen series is pretty good. If I should get one, I would probably get another Noctua, love those.
  15. I have another question if you can answer, will I be able to update the bios of this motherboard without having a 2nd gen CPU for this board?
