    https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/D7R36XIt's probably the best you can get for the money ATM. It's without the case and Windows key. Since you were talking in Euros I was looking at prices in Germany, ...

  • PfizersaurusRex posted a message in the forum topic Which 1070 (or 1060) for relatively quiet gaming?. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    Any model with 2 or 3 fans with the "Zero dB" option (almost all models have it). From what I remember MSI Gaming X cooler has some pretty huge fans and is very quiet, there's also Gainward Phoenix, ...

    @04dcarraher: What options do you have for overclocking? There's a lot of talk about multi core enhancement on forums, but nowhere I could find if you can force max turbo clock on all cores with a non...

  • PfizersaurusRex posted a message in the forum topic Need help for a friend's upgrade. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    FX-6300 is not so much of a bottleneck with GTX 1060 as GTX 750Ti is with Ryzen 5 or i5, but 4GB RAM is below minimum for most games now. And he won't be able to reuse DDR3, so only if he can get anot...

  • PfizersaurusRex posted a message in the forum topic Going from gtx 1060 3gb to RX 580 4gb worth the upgrade?. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    Nah. Do you even have a freesync monitor? If you do and it's 60Hz it won't be any smoother since GTX 1060 will get you 60 fps on 1080p in most games. If you have a 144Hz monitor then RX 580 would mak...

  • PfizersaurusRex posted a message in the forum topic GPU Recommendation Please!. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    Your PSU should be good for GTX 1050 Ti, and it's a good choice for 1080p, but only if you'll change the rest of the system, otherwise it's a waste of money. I think your motherboard needs to have UEF...

  • PfizersaurusRex posted a message in the forum topic Price $1000~1500 PC suggest. on the PC & A/V Hardware board

    Between the 2 boards: MSI Tomahawk. But my recommendation would be Asus B350 F-Gaming. It's the only B350 board that I know of that has 6 phase VRM (6 phases for CPU+2 for RAM). Not important if you ...

    CPU MB RAM, and with $500 (+whatever you can get for your old parts) Ryzen looks more interesting. Because their platform will last longer and because atm Intel doesn't offer anything but Z370 for 8th...

    You can google your thermal paste to see if it's non-conductive, just to feel better about it if it is. I wouldn't touch the pins unless necessary.
