  1. I like Intel, Samsung and ozc. I believe $80usd should get a 500gb currently. If not pretty close, 90 maybe. Should have been plenty of deals today too.
  2. Using an asus board myself, it has an ez 5.0 oc setting on it. The voltage is high but that can always be turned down if it’s stable. Also used the auto oc option and went over 5.1. I just set my multiplier to 50 and voltage to manual and 1.32. Haven’t really done much else to dial it in. Just made it stable.
  3. I still haven’t went though the trouble to do hardline yet. Would still need a considerable amount of case modding for me to consider it. If you don’t want to spend the money right now don’t bother. I used red ek fluid for both of my rigs and never had a stain issue. I was concerned as well but everything is still pretty clear, but the hose does get some.
  4. Should be able to force it. You can add heat but don’t use too much and deform the plastic.
  5. It’s just cardboard. Don’t see it being an issue or unsafe.
  6. Plenty of Facebook marketplace if you’re on that. 400-450 is more 1080ti price though.
  7. I prefer my 1080p 240hz. Frame loss at 1440 was too much for me as well as trying to adapt muscle memory and mouse settings for the larger rez. Only really proffered it for one game. My 1080 still got me 200 frames which is worlds apart from using my 144hz 1400p. I only play fps games and always at the top of the board. So if you are an eye candy player, go 1440.
  8. I like mine to be quiet too, which i why I got rid of the strix version of a 1080. And theres no way for my cpu to run that cool and be quiet and keep up with a gtx1080.
  9. If it’s a fe blower, it already cools plenty. I’d rather keep something nice on the card instead of having to look at some contraption.
  10. Well you aren’t watching per core. My cpu goes to max when I launch the game too. And stays there while shaders load. Don’t see a problem with that. Even gameplay a few cores are at or near max. Also doesn’t matter if Windows isn’t showing use. As you aren’t on the gpu menu to see how it’s broke down in its usage. Also isn’t gonna effect anything what so ever. Aside from trying some fixes others say helped I don’t see much of an issue.
  11. As in even a $50 card can run it. Isn’t a big deal. Though I’m not sure what you’re gonna steam as a 1060 can’t do much for a many games. Especially for a 144hz monitor to be beneficial.
  12. It’s performing as intended. Not sure what you were expecting. Use nvidia inspector and setup multi monitor power saver. Could try it’s fan software as well. Assuming you are actually deleting all the other software installed before using another.
  13. So it just clocks high, don't see why that would bother you. Has nothing to do with load. Cant say much about the fan control, I dont by that brand for a few reasons. Normally programs give me fan control without issues. Maybe try another one.
  14. Actual load and use aren’t the same. And temps are more constant on air.
  15. Don’t see a problem. If there is a reason it’s under load then it’s going its job. Especially if there isn’t a frame limit, the game/driver changed or the settings. As far as temps go, that can change with ambient temps, airflow and load. Tim age and other factors. Make a better fan profile is the fan noise is the issue and ignore the gpu temps.
