  1. Hey all, I'm looking into buying a good gaming laptop as I don't have access to a desktop atm unfortunately. I saw the Razer Blade 15 highly recommended, main specs below: CPU: Core i7 GPU: RTX 3060 Storage: SSD 512 GB RAM: 16 GB What are people's experiences with this model? That GPU seems fairly chunky for only an i7 core. And is is 512 GB enough for an SSD, for gaming purposes? Thanks! Link to the actual laptop (on Amazon): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Razer-Blade-Base-Model-i7-10750H/dp/B08T9XYJDZ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=161TE95BU1OOV
  2. Not an option due to customs issues I don't even think you could do that even if you wanted to, aren't they factory sealed? Wouldn't mess around with that tbh. I guess the safest / best solution then might be to just stick it in the cargo hold as there are no limits on liquid there, and I don't think I'm going to find out the exact ml content
  3. is this necessary? I just bought the mobo and wouldn't want to tamper with it too much, least of all dissect parts, but then again I wouldn't want the security guys the refuse it and then what am I gonna do, throw it away... Do airlines care about these small CMOS batteries?
  4. Sure, but once you're at that point there's no going back. If they refuse for whatever reason (and I've seen posts elsewhere, even of people who work at airports, who say AIOs sometimes don't pass security checks), you can't go back and put it into your cargo luggage. So I'd really like to find out how much ml there is in this thing, I've asked Corsair but they haven't replied
  5. Hi all, I recently bought the Corsair HX1200 80+ Platinum PSU, and I'm thinking of taking it on an airplane with me soon. I contacted the airline and they said it should be fine to take in as carry-on luggage, provided there's no battery inside that could explode or cause issues. I'm not that familiar with how the PSU is structured internally to be honest, is there a battery inside? Or is its only purpose to transfer power from the wall socket to the PC, without any battery in between? On this topic, does ANY part of the PC have an actual battery in it, maybe like a mini-battery
  6. Hi all, I just recently bought the Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix 360mm AIO liquid cooler, and I'm thinking of taking it with me on an airplane. Since the airport only allows up to 100ml of liquid to be taken in as hand luggage, does anyone know how much liquid (in ml) there is in this model? If it's over 100ml and I have to take it in my cargo luggage, are there any things I should be paying attention to? For instance, should the cargo hold be pressurised or temperature-controlled to ensure the AIO doesn't leak / explode?
  7. As the title says, which one do you think is better overall, and why? The 4k will obviously have better image quality, but may stutter / be less smooth than the 144Hz one. Does the 4k's limited Hz also limit max fps, or is that just down to the quality of your hardware? Also, can 4k monitors typically be taken down to 1440 to use more Hz (say, when playing a refresh rate-demanding title), or is Hz typically locked at 60 for them, no matter the resolution (not asking about any specific model, just generally curious)? Which one would you pick, especially if your focus is
  8. I saw a video recently (sorry can't find it atm, but it was from one of the big tech youtubers) that said for open air GPUs (which most GPUs are nowadays, incluidng the one I've got), a front-mounted AIO radiator is significantly better though. Not too worried about the dust, just performance (I can always clean the dust more frequently). So would there be a disadvantage in terms of performance is the AIO fans served as intake fans? Doesn't negative create better cooling though?
  9. Budget (including currency): £5,000 (around €6,000 / $7,000) Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: any and all games (Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed, the new Elders Scrolls, Total War: Warhammer 3, etc.) 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): This is a completely new build that I'm treating myself to where money is no object. Well, I mean money is always a bit of an object, but I'm really trying to get
  10. Sorry if this is a bit of a dumb question, I'm building my first PC. If I mount the radiator of my AIO at the front of the case, does that effectively replace the fans which the case comes prebuilt with? And do modern cases generally allow you to do this, are their fans modular (not thinking of any case in particular, I'm just broadly curious)? Lastly, if this is the case, then I'm assuming the AIO fans both perform the function of cooling the CPU and acting as ambient case cooling fans, correct?
  11. Well tbh I'm still a very new builder so I was hoping to avoid messing around with a custom loop. Is there any better way to cool a GPU besides a waterblock?
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you need a whole custom water cooling rig to attach a waterblock onto?
  13. Sorry not really sure what you mean here, how would a support bracket help with the fans and crashing?
  14. Hey all, apologies for a bit of a noob question. I know most top-end GPUs today come with their own cooling system, typically a set of fans attached to the GPU itself. Some come with an AIO system as well, like EVGA's Hybrid models, and I've read various forum posts stating that actually helps bring temperatures down. How is the AIO GPU cooling different to a waterblock? Which one is more effective, which one is easier to install / maintain for a first-time builder? Would you recommend getting one of these liquid cooling solutions for my GPU if I find it's overheating under lo
  15. Hey all, so I've finally managed to get a 3090 at a (relatively) reasonable price! Specifically I got the MSi RTX 3090 Ventus 3X OC, but now looking at the reviews, I've seen several complaints about it overheating / crashing easily. I've also gotten the impression that the Ventus model is somewhat inferior than MSI's Gaming X Trio or Suprim X models. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this card, what is its performance like? How does it run under load, does it overheat? If an opportunity does present itself to potentially switch out this card for another MSI o
