I run my fans at 75% speed (2000-2200 rpm) when I'm gaming. Keeps it 66-70C. I only have one RTX 2080 so I cannot compare performance to other 2080 models. But I get a 20-40fps increase compared to a 1070.
19,657 firestrike and 9,882 timespy with cpu at 4.0Ghz and gpu at +50 core clock (no memory increase)
Runs fine for me. I get a 20-40 fps increase on my games. Plus i have a 30" 1080p acer predator ultrawide. I dont need 1440p or 4k
Parts are listed on the left side of the page. I don't have a sound card.
I built it April this year. And yes I am happy with it.
Its enough. The 1600X has a TDP of 95W. The Frozr L is rated up to 200W. I never pass 60°c when gaming.
Yep. From coldzero.eu. They also have psu shrouds for other cases.
One fan should be enough.
I have a 1080p 144hz monitor. And I pass 90fps in all of my games except Ghost Recon Wildlands, which sits anywhere from 55 minimum to 75 avg.
Firestrike. I don't really use benchmarks as much. I'm sure it will be higher with more cpu intensive tests.
Max I've hit is 52°c but it's usually under 50°c. As for updating the bios, I did it after everything was set up.
Works fine. I only use it for the OS and a few important programs.
It was my first time with a gigabyte motherboard. It was confusing at first. I've always used MSI motherboards
Backplate is from coldzero.eu. Also the parts list is what I purchased in order to upgrade my old PC. So the HDDs, two SSDs, and other parts are from my last build.
Same from my previous build. Corsair 760T and a Corsair RM 550W.
The white version was listed on Amazon March 20th. Couldn't find it on pcpartpicker yet. But its the same as the black
Yeah my friend bought a i5-4690K for $199.99. They also had a $40 off any motherboard if you buy a CPU. So he got an open box MSI Z97 gaming 5 for only $10. Only missing one sata cable and one of the ram holder clips was broken.
Yeah. After seeing comparing them in person (at microcenter), I liked the 760T more
Thanks. I was close to getting the 780T
Yeah. Haha. If only I waited a few more months. I bought it March 2015 when 8gb kit was about $80 and 16gb kit was about $120+
Yes. I can use my fan controller to turn it off and I still get around 30 C during normal use
From Acer's eBay store. I'm not sure if they sell any at the moment. I got it April 2014
I actually have a white cable set from cablemods but after a year switched them back to the corsair flat ribboned cables because they were easier to manage. I only kept the sata cables because they were longer
No. It uses a 135mm fan. Really quiet.
