  1. Well it's built! Using my 1060 as a GPU at the moment. The cooler fits fine in this case with that RAM combo, with a finger gap at the top between the glass. The RGB is slightly pointless in that the cooler covers it lol. But I can still see it from different angles and it still look pretty damn cool. Hoping that will give it some good resale value.
  2. Ok so I went ahead and opened up my PC case and damn I forgot how big the thing is lol, I have Corsair LP RAM in my current one and I have the cooler literally touching the top, didn't realise it's that tight. But I went and opened up my new PC case as well and it's much wider than my old PC. Fractal say you should be able to get 185 mm cooler height. Given Noctua say it's 165 mm that gives me 20 mm to play with. I measured it with the ruler and it seems with the motherboard I can probably even squeeze 190 mm cooler height from the case. Looking at the fan itself, yo
  3. For now... lol By the way, do you have any reference to the 40 mm rule for the second fan on the D15? Can't seem to find it on Noctua's website, going to do some measuring with my current D15 in this rig later as you got my curious. If I must I may just return the RAM and swap it out with non-RGB as I like having double fans!
  4. CAS 17, the other option was CAS 16 3200, the 17/3600 combo is slightly better. EDIT: Good point on the SSD, I figured their 980 Pro is BS, even the endurance rating has dropped to 600 TBW, I wouldn't be surprised if they swapped it out to QLC at some point on the down low (just like Crucial did with the P2). My original was a Sabrent Rocket 1TB PCI4 (non plus version). Which cost more, was out of stock from all the reputable resellers, had lower top read/write speeds and their UK support is very poor from what I heard. To add, the Samsung 980 Pro came at a very good price on Am
  5. Ah, well I knew the HyperX wasn't crazy tall like the Corsair's (I think they are like 60 mm right?) but just assumed that I could keep lifting the CPU cooler higher and higher to clear it. Didn't realise there was a 40 mm limit?
  6. Hey, thanks for the info. Ye I was aware of this, to be honest I'm not too fussed about seeing RGB. In the end I only went for the RGB version because that was the best one I could find and thought the resale value would be good. With the D15 you can lift one fan higher above the RAM (at least I can with my poopy brown NH-D15 that I have currently). I was originally planning to move one of the NH-D15 fans to the other side as I have seen it done before. If that doesn't work I'll just lift the fan above the RGB and not see the lights, my case is huge enough to fit the
  7. Budget (including currency): £3000 Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming and Programming 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): Just monitors, keyboards, etc. Well I specced up another build and parts are on the way... well almost: So my personal observations: 1. I'm an idiot for building a system now considering DDR5 is around the corner (but needs must!) and upg
  8. Thank you and to confirm, they finally dropped the 3070 Ti FE for the first time in the UK today. On 10 June, I booked a half day off work and then spent 5 hours refreshing my computer screen for it. They are 8 days too late, from their "paper launch". F*** you Nvidia.
  9. Perhaps one for the WAN show, nvidia did the 3070 Ti drop yesterday and sold 0 FE cards to the UK market (probably same in other countries too). See:
  10. Ye sorry to clarify, that's exactly what happened. We did not get a FE card drop at all, that's why everyone is confused. They dropped a very limited number of AIB cards and that's it. Many thousands were waiting for the FE card to drop and it didn't happened. I even called the retailer Scan (they are the retailer in the UK like BestBuy responsible for handling the FE cards) and they confirmed that nvidia decided not to sell any today and that they don't know why. How tf is nvidia going to do a release day and give 0 FE cards to the UK (and possible rest of the world???). Wast
  11. Hello, I'm from the UK and nobody got a 3070 Ti FE today, -nobody- at all. I am interested as to why nvidia would have a launch of their product and then supply 0 FE cards. It wasted my day and I'm not sure if this situation is worldwide or only in the UK, but I am wondering if anyone knows more. Can LMG investigate? I personally booked a half day off work, have been waiting for a FE card from 1PM all the way up to 6PM and nothing. 5 hours of my life wasted for nvidia's BS paper launch.
  12. You have to keep checking the nvidia website, when stock is available they change it to "Check Availability" and will link you to something unique on scan.co.uk to make a purchase. They do drops at random times during the day, so it's very hard to get hold of them.
  13. I paid £100, I can stretch to £150 but would prefer to lose features like wireless to get better sound quality than stretch the budget upwards.
  14. I purchased a Steelseries Arctis 7 and have tried so hard to like it, in some aspects it's actually very good. But there are too many downsides, having lived with similar downsides on my old headset for 7 years, not prepared to do the same with this new one, so I am now probably going to return it, the problem is I don't know what to go with instead. Can someone recommend a better headset in the same price range as the Arctis 7? I managed to get it on the BLACK FRIDAY sales for £99 (GBP UK). The problems: 1. The surround sound sucks, this is the most important fea
  15. You really don't lol, you made a whole response about how nobody can get a 3080 in general and now you're sticking to it :D. I was literally just talking about the one 3080 that Linus put up. I haven't bothered trying to get a 3080 or anything like that, so couldn't care too much. I was actually due to build a PC before christmas but I scrapped my plans for another year and bought an expensive bike instead. But since you want me to talk about the topic of the 3080's in general, yes there are definitely bots picking them up, yes there is also fake demand by people scalping them,
