  1. Generally, GPU's with fans do horrible without them and especially when you turn the fans off on a decently hot running card like the 1080. I can speak from experience with my 9400 GT that is a decently underpowered and not very hot GPU. The fan on the 9400 started having some issues until it finally died. When it died, I replaced the thermal paste and decided to run it without a fan because I did not care about thermal performance at that time (turned out to be fatal later). It was idling at around 75C even with high-quality Thermal Paste. My case has decent airflow, nothing too special, noth
  2. If it's a new Graphics card, you shouldn't be so paranoid of artifacts. If artifacts start popping up and stuff or it keeps on crashing because of the GPU, just simply call up the store that you bought it from and get it repaired/replaced while it's still under warranty...
  3. Hello, I recently upgraded my old 2008 Core 2 Quad Q6600 system. I replaced the HDD with an SSD, got a Sapphire Toxic R9 280X Tri-X OC instead of the Nvidia 9400GT, 8 GB of ram and a new power supply. Since I got the PC, I noticed that when I press the power button, beeps then it boots, shows the windows logo, then the screen goes black and beeps again and then boots into windows, I thought nothing of it and don't mind it, but, I see that I can't restart it, it really bugs me because I can't play valorant because it requires a restart and I can't restart it. The issue is, I press the "re
  4. Finally, I'm either going to go with the enermax revolution d.f. 650w or the corsair CMPSU-650TXV2
  5. Will a corsair Corsair 650W CMPSU-650TXV2 be okay?
  6. I never actually knew that LC Power had issues, probably my mistake for not doing research. Also, thanks for making me feel poor
  7. See, the point is that I need a 2x8 pin PSU and I don't know which one of those have 2x8 pin's for the GPU. Also everyone hates LC Power but I've never had a single issue in the 10 years I had LC Power PSU's Not to mention, a professional recommend me that exact PSU so like, idk
  8. Yup, I ordered an LC Power LC8650II 80+ PSU and the R9 280X just to be safe
  9. So, recently my laptop has been performing really badly and I wanted to upgrade the old family computer no one uses and make it a daily/light gaming machine. I have gotten a new PSU for it, an SSD instead of an HDD, added two sticks of ram to the system and the final part would be getting a new GPU that is decently inexepnsive at these time. R9 series was probably the best I could find under 80 bucks. Yesterday I was looking at this three fan Sapphire Toxic R9 280X Tri-X and on google I saw that it requires a 2x8 pin connection. My new LC Power LC500H-12 doesn't have enough juice
