Forum Topic "New NVIDIA GPUs"

You can already find used 1080ti's for $500 so i'd say new 1080ti's will at likely be around $500 if not lower.

Probably not exactly what your looking for but I’d check out the Lian Li o11dynamic as it has the front glass but doesn’t restrict airflow.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

Forum Topic "Core i7-5820K worth it in 2018?"

Where are you looking? When looking on ebay you have to factor in 10% fees. I look on /reddit/harwareswap and all these prices are accurate. Edit heres a link to someone selling that motherboard and a 5820k for $200 and $100, most people will sell for lower if you bundle items and cause these haven't sold they will also go lower on the price, if you want more proof of these prices just look on there yourself.

This is how the system would be priced out if someone was to sell it piece by piece on something like ebay after the 10% fee, or reddit hardwareswap. I would price the system at around $800

Check through task manager while in game to see how much rum you are using, I would still recommend going to a extra 8gb of ram though.

Are you sure the cooler didn't break off? It sounds like the cooler isn't making proper connection to the cpu, did you also make sure to use enough thermal paste?

I would keep the sc2 hybrid and test it out, even if the pump does make noise it probably will still be quieter than a air cooler.

Forum Topic "Fractal Design Define Nano S - GPU Airflow issues?"

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 22 days ago

Mine was the one fan "gaming" model which only has something like a intel stock cooler. If you go to completed builds with a 480 you can see when you click on someones build under all the parts it will say "gpu temp under load" and most builds i could find where around 75c so you should be fine.

Forum Topic "Fractal Design Define Nano S - GPU Airflow issues?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 22 days ago

I still think it will run under 84c. If i was op i would message people on here that have built in the nano s using a dual fan 480, and see what they have experienced. Just from looking at a few builds i was able to find that people where seeing temps and the mid 70's, but im not sure at what fan speed.

Forum Topic "Fractal Design Define Nano S - GPU Airflow issues?"

bengy22 4 Builds 2 points 22 days ago

Don't worry about it, you said the 480 has two fans, install a fan under the gpu and your temps will be fine. I built in the case and even with a single fan 1060 with a really bad cooler temps are around mid 70's.

How did you hydro-dip the parts? Did you do it your self or have someone else do it, it looks great and definitely better than what i could do just with a spray can!

Forum Topic "Is 750W enough to power two R9 390s?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 23 days ago

I feel 750w would be pushing it too much, I currently have a 750w good quality psu and was thinking of getting two 980ti’s (250w each) so 500w total and most people told me that I would need a bigger power supply. Any reason you want to go with two 390’s? A used gtx 1080 can be bought for under $400 and will cost around the same while only being one card so you don’t have to upgrade your psu and deal with crossfire.

Forum Topic "Is 750W enough to power two R9 390s?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

Well what other parts are in the build? 750w is pushing it a lot, each r9 390 can consume up to 300w so 600w total, that plus your 8350 (im guessing this cause that's what's in your completed build) would be 725 watts alone without anything else, something like a 850w or even a 1000w is what i would buy if you really want to 390's but at that point something like a 1080 would cost around as two 390 ($200 each plus a $100 psu) if you are still using the 8350 imo you should really focus on upgrading that first.

Forum Topic "I think my Video Card is failing."

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

What is the exact psu you have (manufacture), can you link me where to buy it? From what I can find the minimum requirement for a 390x would be a 600w psu as the card can pull over 300w alone. I would first try to test the Gpu in a different computer and if possible get a new psu ASAP unless the one you have is a really good quality unit. If you find the Gpu doesn’t work in a different pc or the new psu doesn’t fix it then I would look into rma’ing it to Asus.

Forum Topic "Looking for useful information on building computers"

bengy22 4 Builds 0 points 26 days ago

Vagabond139 all ready covered the links to good places to learn so i will skip that. A good start would be to post what the computers spec's are so you can figure out if you can reuse any of the parts, most people will be helpful here and feel free to ask any questions. A few normal questions when helping chose parts for people here are what country do you currently live in or where would you buy the parts? In your $600 (usd?) budget does that include a monitor, keyboard, and mouse? What would you like to play those games at (like 1080p, 60fps, medium settings). And most important (imo) for a budget build, do you live near a microcenter? They have amazing prices on cpu's and motherboards which would help a lot for any budget build.

Looks like Msi afterburner bugged out and thought it had sent that much voltage to the card and speeded up the fans. Try closing and opening up Msi afterburner again.

Forum Topic "What situations would 16 gb ram be good for?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Unless you really can't afford it go with 16gb, i play Escape From Tarkov and it usually sits around 12gb to 14gb (i know for a fact Eft will need more than 8gb unless you want to have a memory cleaner open, check the reddit), with just the game, discord and msi afterburner open. From my experience most games will use more than 8gb if available, another game i play Rust would often get closed by windows when i had 12gb due to not enough ram and is why i got more. I personally believe 16gb is necessary for gaming after my experience unless you really can't afford it.

Forum Topic "1080 FE Temps 'high'"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Be careful with water cooling, it starts out with just thinking about build a simple cooling loop, then you add gpu's and some extra fittings and the price really starts to ad up, i would love to watercool my self but the price is just so high compared to my build itself. Check out Reddit/Watercooling and i'm sure someone there could answer any questions you might have.

Forum Topic "1080 FE Temps 'high'"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

As others have stated your temps are high but not unusual, installing something like msi afterburner (what i use) should help and you could set a temp limit to help also (this would decrease your performance by down clocking the card and thus reducing the heat output). One other thing you could look into would be replacing the thermal paste, i cant speak for everyone but when i had a founders 1070 i replaced it with ic diamond and got temps around 5c lower, i would only do this if you feel comfortable with taking the heat sink off of the card though. Also if you have not done this yet you could lower the second gpu to the lower slot like This build, from my experience with a sli build it's your top card that's running hotter and moving the card down will give it more space to breath (msi afterburning will show you which card is running hotter).

Forum Topic "What’s the difference between those two video card?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The manufacture and the cooler; do research on both of the card like: hows the warranty through that card, does the cooler it uses keep it cooler and silent, which one do you like the look of better, etc. $454 cad seems high for that card, i'd look at different models like the Strix, windforce, g1 gaming, evga gaming, and find out what you like with a gpu and chose the one you want.

Forum Topic "Battle of the 1080s"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Could be, personally i'd rather it be that than owning a card that doesn't have good warranty and have to wait a month to get it back, but also could be cause people who end up needing there service are so astonished with it.

Forum Topic "Battle of the 1080s"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I would go with the Evga card, the Ftw card is very nice and you have Evga's awesome warranty and their "step-up" program Link

Forum Topic "Used gpus?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

If you stick with Evga you will have no problems in case something does happen, you can also check with the using the serial number to see how long it has left on the 3 year warranty and you could judge how long it's been used. When i'm looking for a used gpu it's what i do, never bad to be too careful.

Forum Topic "Micro or Mini Itx that's Easy to move around a lot?"

bengy22 4 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

It felt somewhat sturdy but definitely at a cost, sharp points and little dust protection along with below-par airflow, no cable management and almost no noise cancellation it would be hard to recommend it when someone has a bigger budget. I paid $35 for mine and at that price it's hard to beat. (All of this is my opinion based on my experience with the case).

Forum Topic "Micro or Mini Itx that's Easy to move around a lot?"

As someone who has built in the elite 110, i can't recommend it unless you need something that cheap, the only thing i liked about that case was the price, everything else was below par imo.
