  1. Here is the cooler that I use: https://www.arctic.ac/en/Freezer-34-eSports-DUO/ACFRE00060A I don't know which CPU you are using, nor your case dimensions so you will need to validate it will fit .
  2. You can use MSI Afterburner to set a custom fan profile and be sure to allow MSI afterburner to start on launch. This won't stop the fans from spiking at boot up but as soon as MSI afterburner launches, it will calm them down again.
  3. That is the same thing I am thinking. I could spend a lot of time/money trying to figure out all the problems, but not really worth it from a cost perspective.
  4. Thanks for the response. I did remove the battery from the laptop and this didn't change anything. The power connector looks like the following (not the same model, but similar) https://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=21841&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=&scid=scplp21841&sc_intid=21841&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwb6dmsuw7QIVQ77ACh3EHAPiEAQYASABEgKGrPD_BwE I removed it to check for a short and didn't find any. This is why I am thinking something on the main board died.
  5. So my daughter is in her last year of college and finals are coming up. Of course her 4-year old Dell Inspiron 13 decided to stop working. We thought it was the power brick, so we got a universal replacement that had the correct adapter (according to the instructions). Well this didn't fix anything, so I dug deeper. I opened the case and found the power port to be loose, so I fixed that. I then tried to plug the laptop back in and nothing.... So here is where it gets wierd for me... The Dell power brick has a green light that turns on when you plug it in to the
  6. Yeah, I don't know. That sales support stopped me from buying the MX series as well until I could do more research which I have not had time to do. I was hoping that folks here knew more. It seems that the sales support guy was clueless - go figure.
  7. I asked Crucial about the DRAM cache on the MX series and I was told it didn't have one. The BX and MX series were virtually the same drive. This was about 3 weeks ago. So not sure whom to believe the Crucial sales support rep or PC Part Picker?
  8. Did you take into account the Operating System, data files, temp files from browsing the internet? So many places to each up a small drive like that.
  9. I give up, you guys have give him the wrong information all you want. 25 Megabits per second is NOT equal to 25 Megabytes per second and at 25mbps the downloading of a large file will take a while. It is up to the OP to determine the best speed he can. I am out and frankly I wish I never replied to this thread now.
  10. A Mbps connection is not going to yeild MB/s speeds. I am not sure what you are referring to but there are a lot of articles describing what I am trying to say.
  11. Please be aware that 25Mbps is not the same as 25Mb/s. Mbps is about 1/8 of a MB/s so at 25Mbps you max at about 4 MB/s max download. So plan your large files download accordingly cause they are going to take quite a while on a 25Mbps connection.
  12. In my opinion, I would wait for the new AMD cards and see from there. The 2060 is still a good card to hold you for a few more months.
  13. Can you please provide the specs for the PC? What power supply (or max rating). CPU, Memory...
  14. Hey cool guy this is late for a lot of the members and I am just going to bed myself. I don't have time to go through each one of your questions at this time. However, 16gbs is not overkill but where you should be in my opinion. 32gb is overkill. I do not believe the 1660 super is going to play all those games at high/ultra 60 fps (which is slow by todays 144/240 monitors). However, I do not play those games so I can't really comment on exactly how good a 1660 will be. Also, the question of "how long before you have to upgrade" is always hard to pin down. Th
