  1. It could help. When is the last time you changed it?
  2. 81 degrees under a stress test is normal and totally fine. Play some demanding games and see what your max temps are over an hour or so and if it stays under 81C it’s just fine. Most GPUs can handle slightly higher temps than 81C for short term just not sustained over a long period. I wouldn’t worry about 81C in a stress test.
  3. I just make sure to clean the front 2x140mm radiator intake fans every couple of days so they don’t gather dust on them and blow it inside the case. As far as ambient dust in the room I haven’t noticed any sort of build up or issue of any kind inside or outside the PC.
  4. I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I’ll just say mine is Mission 4. I’m only on Mission 6 so far so that might change. Also what difficulty do you play on? Im playing on Pilot difficulty and haven’t had any huge issues that I couldn’t eventually overcome after a few tries. Not gonna lie my most difficult moment was when Keo was teaching me how to drift.
  5. I have an NZXT H510 Elite is it similar? (note: I took the front glass panel off because it’s stupid and keeps hot air in.)
  6. I really like my Samsung 970 EVO Plus. You can get a 2TB for like $329. There are cheaper drives out there but I love Samsung.
  7. I have a Corsair RM850x and I can vouch that it’s a great PSU. Haven’t had any problem with it at all and it’s very quiet.
  8. I just built my first PC about 9 months ago and trust me: It wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be. The manuals basically give you step-by-step instructions on everything. For me the hardest part was getting things plugged in without leaving a giant rat’s nest of cables.
  9. Well more fans doesn’t always mean lower temps. Linus and Jay actually did a video where they found at a certain point adding more fans did nothing.
  10. Honestly though I don’t think even normal unpaid shipping would result in any problems as long as they don’t ship it like idiots with no protection. I bought a prebuilt from IBuyPower for my last PC and they just packed it in foam and in a tight box and it arrived in flawless condition. You shouldn’t have to pay for it though.
  11. I just picked up a Razer Basilisk Ultimate wireless mouse and I’ve decided to get rid of some more cables by getting a wireless keyboard but I don’t have any knowledge or experience of the wireless keyboard market. Does anyone have any recommendations? Bonus points if you have hands on experience with one or more.
  12. Yeah that’s just my opinion. Some people don’t like it being too realistic. Same with the complicated control system requiring all sorts of different button pressing. A lot of people hate it. But I like it because if you watch Star Wars the pilots are pressing all sorts of buttons so to me it’s just more realism. Basically I would say this game is the closest thing in the modern day to actually flying an X-Wing or Tie Fighter. Even more so in VR!
  13. Maybe they’re intending something like this? Or maybe they’re replacing the standard case fans with better ones?
  14. True, very true. Maybe it’s in case he tries to overclock further than what they do? I don’t see why they’re charging him $19 to protect his “dream system” in transit. Don’t most PC sellers replace or repair anything damaged in transit for free?
  15. “My moving part of my thing”.. Can you please be more specific?
  16. I think the Intel Tuning protection thing is in case the CPU is damaged from overclocking.
  17. CARE1: Ultra Enhanced Packaging Solution - Protect Your Dream System During Transit [+19] Shouldn’t that come by default? Most companies will just send you a new one in exchange for the old one if it arrives damaged.
  18. I looked on Amazon and the Sennheiser Game One headphone says it’s wired not wireless.
  19. For me that wasn’t an issue. I wanted a game that gave me the most realistic and immersive experience in flying an X-Wing and Tie-Fighter and other SW ships and the only way to do that is in the first person perspective where the player is getting the same view as a pilot flying those ships would get.
  20. I haven’t noticed any bugs in my 3 hours of play so far.
  21. I got it on Steam. So far I’m enjoying it. It reminds me of the N64 game Star Fox with the whole flying in squadrons and destroying stuff. The graphics are beautiful though! It makes it more immersive. Some people have complained about complicated controls but I’ve been playing with an X-Box controller and haven’t had any significant issues. If anything it makes it more realistic since flying an X-Wing or Tie Fighter would require pressing lots of different buttons. Oh and most importantly: NO LOOT BOXES or P2W!
  22. It just released today and I’ve been playing it for a couple hours but I’m just wondering if anyone else is playing it because I’m stuck on a particular mission involving pesky Imperial shuttles. Or if anyone is considering getting it, I would be happy to answer questions via PM. Thanks!
  23. Well I guess that’s good then. If you ever need more storage you can use SATA SSDs since they’re cheaper than NVMe.
  24. Ah well I guess that makes sense then if you have that issue. Personally, I refuse to pay for a game if I’m not going to play it. I also have a lot of games that I play occasionally but not all the time and it would be a pain in the a$$ to have to re-download them everytime. Especially games like Red Dead Redemption 2 which is over 100GB but I play it a couple times every month.
