Re: Gaming Case

Hi Steve I will get my grandson to do what you have suggested, it might not be for a while as I have just ended up in hospital with 4 broken ribs from a fall onto a concrete floor from a loft space.
I will be back in contact as soon as I am up to it.

Hi Steve yes I can understand what you are saying and I can’t understand the 2% only on GPU in DX 12. Hopefully I can get some guidance somewhere as to what we need to try next as it does not seem to be running correctly and certainly not if the components are usually man enough for that game.

Re: Case help please

Thanks again for your reply
The main thing that I am concerned about is gpu cooling and fan placement.
I know that I can install two fans in the front and one at the rear, do you think
I will require any at the sides.
