Nice build :) If you was going to choose an air cooler over the aio which would you have chosen for this build and why?

Thanks, I thought it would have been an issue but I have an electric blower, I give it a once over before I start her up :)

Thanks mate :) I really like the evga powerlink, I have nothing bad to say about it. The build quality seems fine and works how it should

Yeah it's great, it needed calibrating slightly and an icc profile downloading. The 144hz gsync is awesome!

I don't worry about dust to be honest. I have an electrical blower (designed for pc dusting) a quick blast with that and it's done

Thanks dude. It's a evga powerlink. All our does is it shifts the position of your gpu cables. It proved useful for me because the position of the gromit on the case and the length of the gpu it was quote akward without it and didn't look right

How do you uninstall the old catalyst driver before installing the new crimson driver?

oh ok, would it be worth updating the driver and using a nexus mod to fix the compass issue on fallout 4?

Forum Topic "R9 390 - 15.11.1 Beta driver"

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

I'm not sure if people who are using the same driver that I'm using have had issues with their GPU fan speeds but mine seems to be ok I have a custom fan curve set and it seems to work ok.

I rolled it back I didn't realise there was a mod to fix it.

It certainly was :)

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Only thing I can advise you on really is do your research on parts etc... and set yourself a budget. If your unsure make sure you ask in the PCPP forums! :)

BB2013's Completed Build: My PS4 Replacement - My First Build

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Hi thanks for your comment :) when my build is due for an upgrade in a few years I'll try my hand at an unlocked CPU when I'm a bit more experienced and a new mobo :)

I know smh haha if I built another I feel confident enough to say that I could do it quicker now ;)

I'd like to get it a bit neater at the back of the case someday too and thanks :)

Thank you and yes I agree to, It wasn't for the performance, just the aesthetics the stock cooler is quite ugly :)

That i5 6600 is never in stock at Amazon UK @ £155 - You'll be looking at around £180 - £190. I went for the 6500 for £157

Forum Topic "Do I need to stress test my system?"

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

I didn't know, I'm very new to the PC community and a bit lost tbh :P How long should each test last for? On the GPU & CPU? are there any particular settings that need to be used within each programme?

Forum Topic "Do I need to stress test my system?"

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Thanks for the recommendation, I think I'll use Furmark as it has its own temp monitoring built in :)

Other than AV software what else do people install I know it sounds a bit vague but I'm really new to all this.

Thank you very much!!! :)

Forum Topic "How do I connect my XFX r9 390 to PSU?"

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

On both the VGA cables the connectors are 6+2 connectors.

Thanks.

Forum Topic "How do I connect my XFX r9 390 to PSU?"

BB2013 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

So I have one end plugged into VGA 1 on the PSU the other end will go into the 8 pin socket on the GFX card.

So do I have to use the 2nd VGA cable that came with the PSU plug it into VGA 2 and then just use the 6 pin connector?

Cheers.

I've got all my parts for my build except the GPU which I'll be ordering on Sunday how has the 390 been performing for you in Fallout 4? I've seen some benchmarks on YouTube and it looks like its optimised towards Nvidia

Sorry with bombarding you with questions but why have you chosen a Z170 mobo with the 6500? Or am I missing something?
