  1. Thanks for the tip. I accidentally I connected the 140mm fan to the AiO water-cooling set header. I moved it to the secondary optional cpu header and it's perfect now. Multumesc Mateyyy. One more month until my GPU!
  2. Hey guys, I am done with the build and everything is brilliant. Thank you for your help. I learned a lot from this build, like: Fractal cases are garbage. I personally made a mistake with the size (I can't put on the second fan for the CPU cooler but it idling around 27... should be fine) but the build quality is not the best. Manual states that I can fit multiple 140mm fans but it's not true. I was better of with the 120's RE fans I have a small problem with the fans. They are too loud an I am not sure why? The CPU fan is labbalaled as pump? They are all PWA. Not su

  4. I understand that for gaming the 10600 is better with 16GB ram but I use After Effects and sometimes run heavy Python scripts as well. I would like to stick to the 10700 non K (I will never OC - not my cup of tea and I love durability) RAM: I found this ram but I hate RGB: G.Skill Trident Z Neo RGB 2x16GB DDR4 3200Mhz CL16 Do you have a better suggestion? MOBO: Asus ROG STRIX Z490-E seems to have decent features and two things I never cheap out on are mobo and PSU. Thanks for the Noctura suggestions - I will go for them.

  6. Let's end the debate. As much as I would like to experiment... I don't have the budget for it and I am an Intel fanboy. I would like to go for intel for my personal casual rig. I am not sure which processor is the best for this budget and for the 3070. That's where i would like to get some guidance. I also need a mobo and of course the cpu cooler suggestion once we know which CPU is the best option.
  7. There is a £100 difference between i5 10600 and intel i7 10700 - I am inclined to go for it.
  8. We will not understand each other if you don't read my first post.
  9. Could you elaborate with examples? I helped my fiend to build an AMD PC with the help of this forum but I am not completely comfortable to buy an AMD for myself. What's the AMD equivalent of i5? and which AMD CPU is be better for the same price?
  10. You mean the i5 - AMD equivalent is better or I can get a better AMD for this price?
  11. And do you have a better motherboard suggestion? When I think of the motherboard my only requirement is to keep it future proof and by that I mean if i want to upgrade to a stronger CPU and Wifi. Wifi is important because I live in a shared house and I can't run a cable to my PC.
  12. "It's not available on part picker but I plan to buy a GEFORCE RTX 3070." Important notes I don't want to overclock. I would like this to last.
  13. Budget (including currency): £1000 - £2000 Country: UK/England/London Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Adobe CC and Casual 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 peripherals and an Aorus AD27QD monitor. It's not available on part picker but I plan to buy a GEFORCE RTX 3070. The part a choose do far PCPartPicker Part List CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K 4.1 GHz 6-Core Pr

  15. Thank you all. You just suggested a more powerful CPU. Can I use the stock fan? plus I don't have the money for the 2080 super. That's why I linked this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2070-super/ - is it a good idea to order it from here? --- This is the build according to my preference and based on feedback. I don't want to change the noctura/case/psu combo - I just choose a less powerful PSU from the same brand. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item
  16. Before I order the parts I would like to get an educated opinion about this build for mixed use: Gaming and all the Adobe environment + Web development. I am flexible with the budget but I defo don't want to spend more than £2.2k/$2800 at max. Planned GPU: https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2070-super/
