  1. Ok thanks for the advice. I will just look into custom fan curves if needed!
  2. Hi, I need a GPU for a new system that was meant to have a RTX 3070 in it, however due to the illusive nature of those cards, I have downgraded to something I have actually found stock of, and which would in all likelihood suit my gaming needs for years to come. So I am now looking at the 5600 XT. I currently have the PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB ITX Graphics Card on order (and have stock allocated, just not dispatched!) https://www.scan.co.uk/products/powercolor-radeon-rx-5600-xt-itx-6gb-gddr6-pcie-40-graphics-card-7nm-rdna-2304-streams-1560mhz-gpu-1, but have
  3. Thanks for the advice. I will take a look! Regarding this question "Assume I run these for 3 years+, the background tasks are multiple, with Creative Cloud, dropbox, one drive, nas drive backups, virus scanner etc etc, then add on my work load to it... which is better then? More cores or higher IPC? Or doesn't it really make a difference? Would the general responsiveness, speed of apps opening etc be noticeable between the two?" Do you envisage it making a difference? Thanks
  4. I guess I will wait to see if my pre-order comes to anything this side of xmas. Or if there are any discounts on the 3700x this weekend. Thanks Humm, ok, tbh I went for the design over the function, which I like - and the fact that gamers nexus puts it in the 'ok to fine' category. Have you any similarly priced cases in mind that look smart without RGB and wings vomited all over them? Thanks
  5. Budget (including currency): £1300ish Country: GB Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Web development, graphic design, gaming. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I have all components apart from a PSU, GPU (although on a pre-order for a 3070) and CPU (currently on a pre-order for a 5600x). I will be using this computer all day for work, with multiple programs open, lots of app switching, lots of PS,
  6. Thanks for all your help! I will await they next gen of gfx cards and hop to it.
  7. Ah I see, I will stick with that then! Nows to waiting for a gfx card to come out. Fingers crossed the AMD 6000 series have stock - or a 3070 does too. Do you think the 2080ti will ever come down to 3070 price? Also I really like a straight case, without RGB, glass panels etc - Any knowledge on how the airflow performs with The Fractal Meshify C? https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/black-fractal-design-meshify-c-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811352085 Thanks again
  8. Hi Boggy77, Thank you for this breakdown. You've picked in the middle ground with what I was thinking which is perfect! I will wait until Black Friday I think incase anything goes on sale. Your CPU answer is exactly what I was pondering tbh. Out of interest what is the difference between B450 and B550 boards with this CPU? Thanks
  9. Budget (including currency): £1300 GBP Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Image editing, video, web dev, compiling and gaming. Also recording games for YouTube Other details: I am looking to build a new machine. I already have a slow NAS for my current mac timemachine with 2x3tb wd red drives in it, which I will probably use the drives from. I want to sell my 2017 MBP for a decent PC system. Already have a BenQ 2k monitor. I would like some fast main storage probably 1tb. I would like to play most games at
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. Yea, I think I will stick with an air cooler. I don't care about the systems aesthetics (although I'd like a nice mesh case without glass side panels)
  11. I am looking to build a new system, and usually plump for either the stock cooler or a cheaper air cooler. Just noticed eBuyer have the Corsair Hydro H75 at £39.99. Would I see a marked improvement over the stock cooler that comes with the Ryzen 3600 or 5600x? (Still making my mind wether I want to go last or next gen based on value for money) https://www.ebuyer.com/856087-corsair-hydro-series-h75-liquid-120mm-cpu-cooler-cw-9060035-ww?a=1&utm_content=856087&xnpe_tifc=OILNbuQ.4Fes4unXOFeuxjp.akssa9QrRfn-4Do74IVDrkQ_OIV7xfYp4dbZ4kolOfHT&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campa
  12. Hi Boggy77, Thank you for your thoughts - it's more for work, than for games but you have a point. If I was to stream/record at the same time, do you think the 3900x would have an advantage at this point? Also, out of interest, you have selected 4x8gb memory rather than 2x16gb. I'm guessing this is quicker? I've never really thought about it and I'm interested to know more! Thanks again!
  13. Hi all, Please can I have help trying to figure out CPU and GPU options for a new build? Basically, I am a graphic designer and wordpress developer (doing sass compiling) and I am currently using a 2017 macbook pro as my main machine. To be honest, the laptop is mainly used as a desktop with a nice 27" 2k monitor and I hate the keyboard with a passion (I like the OS, but have no beef with windows). I like games (mainly rts style and puzzle games) and finding more time to play them these days too, and also like recording for YouTube whilst playing. I'm thinking of sellin
  14. Hi all, I'm a web developer running my own business (just me) and my primary tool is a 2017 macbook pro. Keyboard aside, the laptop works well, however I always worry about my and in turn, my clients data corrupting, backups etc. I use Time Machine within an isolated network attached to an older Synology NAS (with 2x3tb in mirror), which seems to backup well. However, about once every 2-3 months it pops up a message saying it needs to rebuild the time machine backup, deleting the old one. My main concern is if the Mac fails (anything apart from the ssd), then as with all modern app
