  1. every included case fan from any case brand i have ever seen was a terrible fan that should only be used if you literally cant afford another dollar on a real case fan. Unless your extreme budgeting I wouldn't even consider included case fans part of a cases appeal, honestly i wish they would all stop including them and reduce prices. BTW 5000D airflow has a mesh issue on the side, when it gets dirty intake fans can make contact with the mesh and make noise.
  2. static content like windows bar, desktop and browsing the web are going to burn into any oled eventually, I See it on peoples samsung phones all the time if they have had it like 3 years or more. I don't know what your use case is but.. ultrawide monitors ftw
  3. I hear 3600/3800 is the sweet spot, something about timings with the cpu needing to stay 1:1 or something, shrug. Better check the top speed for the motherboard too.
  4. 5000D airflow is fine if you get good fans, its def better at airflow for cpu over gpu though. That said my 3080ftw3 rarely ever goes above 80c, i have 6 of noctuas best fans intaking in the front, so my case is stuffed with air.
  5. I have been playing new world with my evga 3080ftw3 since it launched. Im like level 30, my gpu is fine. My gpu actually gets hotter and sits at a higher power % on CoD warzone/MW than it does on new world. I have a feeling it's peoples cheap PSU's thats actually at fault, other than the several evga found with bad soldering.
  6. well corsair also ignored everyone complaining the virtuoso earpads where to small and released a second edition without doing anything to the earpads. I don't think they even try with their mice, they look cheap, especially the scroll wheels.
  7. You would be better off putting the second dh-15 fan on the back of the case Without it I imagine a lot of the hot air will miss the exit and end up cycling back into the case
  8. Can you buy the lowest size harddrive and just swap in a samsung 980 pro and improve performance/have way more storage for cheap?
  9. Should never use the pre-applied paste unless your really strapped for money that you cant afford a $5 tube of arctic mx
  10. Havent had any problems with my 5950x other than that USB issue, i have one unstable usb port that I don't use. they NEED to solve that problem, should be amd's top priority, even over developing next-gen.
  11. So I forgot to clean the dust filter the last few weeks and my fans started sucking in the side dust filter causing noise, so this case does suffer from that issue. The filter seems like they made it too large so it has room to bow in and out Wonder if theres a better one to mod it with...
  12. I had a x73 on my 5950x, the fans would practically always sit at 100%. (and it would reach into the upper 80cs on cod and cyberpunk) My solution was replacing it with air cooling (noctua dh15).. but gona follow this topic to see if there is a solution If I ever went back to the x73 I'd swap the fans out for 3 noctuas
  13. "buy this?" no, and I probably wouldn't use it for free either
  14. Optical ones? As far as I know all of them are different. Corsairs OPX switch acts a lot like a mxsilver but is apparently faster Corsair made a k70 tkl, looks nice, minus the lack of wrist wrest. I tried the apex pro tkl, had a crazy static noise emanating from its built in screen, its not much different from the cheaper apex 7
  15. I also had a graveyard of 5 razer mice that I threw away, there is no way to "fix" them. If you stick with razer expect to make mice a every couple months purchase
