Re: Gaming machine need advice for PSU and CPU cooler

While I don't find it reasonable to buy K-series CPU for its higher resellability, I think that it actually makes sense to go for a top-end CPU which will not bottleneck the performance of GTX 1080. There are just a couple of triple-A games highly reliant on CPU. Also, the overall CPU technology ha...

Re: Silent MiniITX Skylake in 13.4 litres: 6400, GTX950, Nin

Hi,
I didn't see anything mentioned in here but maybe you could help me out. If I go for a SFX PSU like the new Corsair SF450W. Would this allow for a longer graphic card like in the Ncase M1?

Re: Gaming machine need advice for PSU and CPU cooler

Why exactly? He gets more performance out of the i7 than the i5 for the future. If I go for a i5 I would not take the 6600K but rather the normal 6600 since they have the same Turbo Speed anyway and I can save money on the H170 chipset. edit: I convinced him to go with a Fractal Define Mini.

Re: Gaming machine need advice for PSU and CPU cooler

Yea I can upgrade the RAM no problem on that front.

Well the heat is no issue if I don't have to build a complete silent system. So why not go with the i7 :wink:

Re: Smallest ITX Case for this setup (without a graphic card

I'm not sure I see the point of an ATX PSU for a low power build like this. If making it small really is everything then trying to fit in an ATX PSU makes things much larger. A PicoPSU would work fine for the low power components you are talking about. What SSD do you intend to use? If small size i...

Re: Smallest ITX Case for this setup (without a graphic card

NUC is too expensive for the performance that I get out of it. I alrdy saw the Lian Li and kinda like it. Maybe I'll wait for the new Corsair SFX PSU and see if they are silent then I could go for some non ATX PSU cases.

Smallest ITX Case for this setup (without a graphic card)

Hi,
I am looking for the smallest case I can fit this stuff into:

i3-6100 with boxed cooler
ATX PSU
1xSSD, 1xHDD, 1xODD (can be a slim one)
no dedicated graphic card.

I have checked out a lot of cases but it seems that most waste a lot of space for a dual slot graphic card which I won't use.

I read the Bios with GPUZ and I modded it with nibitor iirc. The 20% was just a value that was quieter than the buzz of my monitor so I used that. THe temps are quite okay as well. Something like 47° or so.

if it's needed or not doesn't rly matter because the shop that I'll visit tomorrow has only a few heatsinks: Meghalem, Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme, Scythe Mugen 2, NHU12P

Except the Mugen 2 every heatsink is at the same price lvl give or take 3 euros.
