  1. As long as it has molex connectors that come with the PSU, it should be fine.
  2. I plan on making a custom water loop for the case, so I picked the XL! The normal case is plenty big enough :).
  3. Overall, you will probably receive better fps in games with a dedicated GPU. If he is offering it to you for free, and you are without a gpu, I would take it.
  4. I personally have the 011 dynamic XL case. I have three fans on the bottom as intake, three on the side panel as outtake and two on top as outtake on my 240mm AIO. I am assuming you are using the back fan mount for outtake. I can honestly say that the temps I get are amazing, and I have a 3070 with a 10700k in mine.
  5. It depends the connectors that the fans use. Some cases come with molex connectors, while some use the standard fan connectors that can be plugged into the motherboard. Some Montech cases use molex connectors. I would figure out which one it is using. Molex connectors will be connected directly to the PSU.
  6. When you are playing the game, is the laptop plugged into the charger? Gaming laptops need to be plugged in to achieve full power potential.
  7. The fan that comes with the processor should have thermal paste on the bottom.
  8. Maybe spend less on RAM and get some more storage? Could only go with 32 gigs.
  9. Ok. When you installed the AIO, did you take off any and all covers for it? Was enough thermal paste applied? It could just be an issue of reseating the cooler. I had the same issue with my Cooler Master AIO.
  10. Personally, both are solid choices. I have used both power supplies, but the 850 Watt versions. Had my corsair one for 3 years and counting, and had no issues. Haven't had any issues with my EVGA supply either. The 4000d will hold either PSU.
  11. If the insert is open on the motherboard and visible, then you can put an M.2 NVMe in, without taking any parts out.
  12. Are you using an HDMI cable, Display Port, VGA, or DVI?
  13. I had the problem with my Z490 motherboard. I had to use intel's drivers, because ASUS' drivers were not working.
  14. How long has the problem persisted? Is the driver for your ethernet port updated?
  15. Honestly, I would start with 250. You need to see, if you get the advertised speeds first, before paying an arm and a leg for internet. Odds are, if you are a going to see a significant amount more of speed, then you don't even need to upgrade too much. I have a similar issue here in Mississippi. They are just now introducing fiber internet lines here.
