  1. Well get the best fans there is and if they arent offered with rgb, get those rgb ring things that mount to a fan.
  2. Prefer noctua industrial 2k variants. But black chromax wasn’t an option when building mine. For my cheaper rig I got Arctic 5 pack of 120 and 140. I stick to rgb stripes instead of dealing with rgb fan performance and wiring but I know some are actually good now. Id get the rgb vardar.
  3. I liked the 200r. Got it for 20 bucks back in the day. Fit plenty of hardware and can flow great if some decent fans are used.
  4. Yes, you just select it via the program.
  5. If the program and type of encoding is supported, sure. But theres no downside to using the gpu encoder as it goes unused otherwise. Really comes down to the card or the actual use.
  6. Quality. May be slower though, really depends on the card.
  7. I definitely would still do it. Im not a fan of having hot air intake on my setups. Especially with multiple rads. Would also help keep it positive if you're still gonna use a rear fan.
  8. Already did a 360 and 280 fit just fine. Which I'd only do if I didn't have a choice.
  9. 30 frames playable? Should be a long time with such a low standard. Long enough to buy something better as cheap as new hardware is.
  10. You can fit a 280 on top if you run the 360 fans on the outside of the case. Or if youre into modding, running a 280 on the bottom and keep the front fans as fresh intake. I prefer to buy the same brand blocks for the looks, as some look really bad. Same with the finished on the rads. Not sure if corsair offers the thicker bitspower 280 rads but id get them or ek's rad. Id also go for bitspower barbed fittings. Work great and much easier to use and can use the money saved to match them with angled fittings.
  11. No idea on the issue. Had it happen on one of my rigs. Think it may have been angle, think the card was actually being pushed up by coolant hoses. Nothing I can really thing of as nothing else failed or showed any signs of failing or faults.
  12. Then it wont matter what adapters you use.
  13. Did you look up the power requirements of the hardware? Are you gonna observer the 80% rule or just risk it?
  14. Depends on the games being played. I enjoyed sli for over a decade. The cpu being too slow became an issue before sli was an issue. If you plan on playing games that cant or wont support multiple cards, just get a newer fancy one.
  15. Game just isnt optimized. Plenty of ways around that or games that do support it. So prolly nothing wrong. Still better have more cards though.
