  1. Thanks for the exchange. Been busy lately and haven't been able to really check in on this lately. I'm leaning to the NH-U12S Redux and a couple of possibly Noctua case fans to help exhaust some heat out of the top of my case. (Thermaltake V250 Tempered Glass ARGB Edition 5V MB RGB Sync ATX Mid-Tower Chassis with 3 x 120mm 5V Addressable RGB Fan + 1 x Black 120mm Rear Fan Pre-Installed CA-1Q5-00M1WN-00 - Newegg.com) @Chris Pratt, How do you like those Noctua A14s? Would you recommend a pair of them for top mounted exhaust fans?
  2. and it came with an AM4 bracket or did you have to buy that separate? And above my CPU out the top of the case there is nothing and the GPU is below it. So I should install it to push the air out upwards and if so, should I also invest in 120mm case fans to help suck the heat out the top or is that overkill?
  3. So I am looking into getting the budget Noctua NH-U12S to improve the cooling. I attempted to just ever so slightly over clock my Ryzen 7 3700x and the core temp got to over 90C in about a minute using Cinebench. For some of the Noctua fans I have heard of people needing to swap out their DIMMs for low Profile modules and another review that said the fan did not come with an AM4 mounting bracket. Anyone purchase this with an ATX Mid Tower and can tell me if this should be a concern? Also, should I look to push the air out the top of the case? and if so, should I also look to invest in som

  5. So those monitors look very nice but my budget is 300 usd for a monitor and the only one that fit that was the gigabyte. I've heard IPS isnt as good in dimly lit rooms, and that's why I picked the one I did. Is that true or did I goof?
  6. Mainly gaming and some netflix watching and such. Ganging from WoW to CS to Minecraft etc.
  7. Looking to upgrade my BenQ 60hz 1080p monitor to run my rx 5700xt at 1440p 144hz. I've read that the 5700xt can only comfortably run 4k @ 60hz so I felt the 1440p at a higher refresh rate was a good balance and under 300 bucks. This is the monitor I picked and wanna make sure I didnt make a bad choice before I cant return it.
  8. I was slow to get on the SSD over HDD train and still not on the M.2 train even though my ASUS prime B550M-a supports PCI-e 4.0 M.2 sticks. I'm looking to upgrade the storage in my PC I built a year ago and am looking into getting a Samsung 980 Pro 500GB stick and have seen videos where people use heatsinks for their modules. Is this something I need to buy seperately? Is it necessary if I'm running 1 or 2 of these samsung 980s?
  9. For a rig that expensive I dont see why you wouldn't swap out the HDD for solid state.
  10. I definitely cheaped out on it but I have never had issues with CPU cooling in the past and this time I actually spent some time on cable management to boot. Though I could definitely agree that maybe I went too cheap on it. I feel like an AIO is maybe over kill so what would maybe be a good compromise for a fan?
  11. Budget (including currency): 500 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: WoW (retail/classic), CS, Netflix 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): Here is my existing Parts List. I just purchased this monitor to replace a 60hz BenQ so I can run 1440p at 144hz https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mNhcK3 I think RAM should be a priority and probably a better storage device. Anything else stand out to any
