  1. Yes. Sorry @Mondas42 Nice rig!

    1st build ever

    I can't really be more proud. The biggest challenge was the CPU cooler since I've messed up the pre-applied thermalpaste and had to take the CPU out of the socket and wipe sides that I couldn't reach when it was in the socket (it's a Ryzen chip so the pressure not to bend a pin was on XD). Specs: Ryzen 5 3600 Asrock B450M Steel Legend 8GB GDDR4 HyperX Fury 3200MHz (2x4) Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm HDD Kingston 240GB SSD MSI NVidia GTX 1660 Super 6GB Gaming X NZXT H400i Smart be quiet! Pure Power 11 500W CM PSU The SSD is curre
  5. Hi! So I've finished my new rig (in an NZXT H400i with 3 fans included (2 intake 1 exhaust)) and it started like a jet engine (fans at 100%). I got the CAM software to turn down those fans and I've put it into silent mode. It's much more quiet now, but I think it's running way hotter than needed. Any suggestions on a good fan curve? Thanks a lot!
  6. Yeah I have them. They came with the motherboard. But I won't be upgrading in the near future XD
  7. Yes, I'm using the stock cooler. Will save up for a proper one tho! Will I void my warranty if I undervolt it? I know there's a big warning everytime I get into Master.
  8. Hi! I've finished my new Ryzen 5 3600 rig, but the CPU seems to struggle with cooling itself. I fired up Cinebench, and opened up RYZEN MASTER and Core Temp, and halfway into the test, I got to 90 degrees! I stopped the test and the temps came back down to 40-49 in idle. (in Core Temp they're get up to 50ish). I messed up the preinstalled thermal paste and had to apply a new one, but I am certain that I've put on enough. Maybe the thermal paste is bad. I don't know what to do, but I won't be gaming any time soon : / Can someone give me some advice on what to do? Thanks a lot!
  9. Hi! I just got my NZXT H400i and it came with 5 packs of screws: standoff, kb 5*10 screws (which I know are for case fans), 6-32 screw Hexagon, M3*5 Flat and 6-32 screw flat. What sort of screws should I use to secure the motherboard in place? Thanks a lot! Edit : The adequate screws are the 6-32 flat screws.
  10. Maybe an AIO radiator will do the trick. Thanks a lot! @LogicalDrm
  11. The main problem that the reviewers are pointing out is that there’s way too much metal in the front (more than there are holes, which both cases have), and I don’t know if 2 140mm fans in front will help reduce the temps by a lot or by a few degrees. Just asking to see if I should try to do something with it or to sell it and save up some money and buy a better case.
  12. Hi! Does anyone know how to properly cool the Cooler Master Q300L? I’ve watched a bunch of reviews that say it’s an oven when it comes to cooling, but due to a small and expensive PC part market here in my country, I couldn’t have gone with like an In Win 301 or something like that (this was the best option). I have a Ryzen 5 3600 and a GTX 1660 Super. How do I cool them? Thanks a lot!
  13. I actually found a much better way to hide it - in between the rear fan and the shroud that’s covering my IO there’s a little gap perfect enough for the remaining cable to be neatly tucked away. Thanks so much to all @Konrad_K @mariushm @Lurick @Elements6007
  14. It’s a pretty small case and realy easy to work in from what I can tell (Cooler Master Q300L). Why I haven’t put in the CPU yet is because it is currently beeing shipped to me, and I really couldn’t wait for it any longer so I decided to pre-route everything and put the GPU and CPU afterwards.
