  1. Hi all, I've saved enough money and I'm ready to buy a new Nvidia graphics card for my new PC build, either a 2070 super or a 2080 super and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the $300.00 price difference between the two is worth the performance difference between the 2070 super and the 2080 super. Cheers.
  2. Yeah your right. I'll try that first and see how the dust is after a couple of weeks. I haven't actually got my fans yet I'm still researching what brand to get and also saving for them, I'll let you know how your fan setup suggestion goes though. Thanks mate, Cheers.
  3. @Chimere Yeah after further research on the net I found this article on How to Manage Your PC’s Fans for Optimal Airflow and Cooling and it helped me alot., my cpu cooler fans are designed to flow from front to back straight out the rear vent and I didn't like the idea of drawing air in through an unfiltered vent. There's 3 types of air pressure : Positive air pressure: More fans are drawing air into the case than blowing air out of the case. Negative air pressure: More fans are blowing air out of the case than drawing air in, causing a slight vacuum effect. Equal air pressure: The same amount of fans are blowing air in and out, creating approximately the same air pressure as the surrounding room. What you have described creates negative air pressure. Negative air pressure should create a slightly cooler environment (at least in theory), as the fans are working harder to expel hot air. But the drawback is that the slight vacuum it creates inside the case tends to draw in air from all the unsealed areas: the vents, unused PCIe slots on the rear panel, even the seams of metal in the case itself. Positive air pressure won’t cool quite as well, but combine with dust filters will take in less dust since those vents and seams will expel air rather than suck it in. I'm thinking of opting for positive air pressure (for less dust buildup). Front: 3x high airflow -> in Top: 2x normal airflow -> in Rear: 1x normal airflow -> out It wont cool as well but I'm not a big fan of dust in the case. Cheers.
  4. Ok thanks mate. Just looking at the fan setup I'm now pretty sure the fans on the cooler are setup to blow air through the cooler fins in the direction of back of case to the front of case so the direction suits the rear fan blowing in. Thanks heaps, Cheers.
  5. @Groove_C I've fitted a Gigabyte ATC700 CPU cooler in my new build and I'm assuming the airflow direction of its fans will be from front of the case to the back of the case so will having the back fan blowing in directly against the coolers fan flow be a problem especially being so close to each other ? Cheers.
  6. @Groove_C Wow thanks mate that's exactly what I needed to know. I've always had the rear fan on my PC's blowing out and the front fans sucking in, never had cases with top fan support until the new one I have now. Cheers.
  7. My new PC case supports 3 120mm fans on the top, with regards to air flow are they suppose to suck air in or blow air out ? Sorry for the noob question. A mate keeps telling me there suppose to blow the heat out but I thought they would suck air in. Cheers.
  8. Thanks for the replies guys. The mouse I use is a Sharkoon Fireglider. Whats happening is its doesn't seem to be supporting the weight of my right clicker finger anymore and seems to be very easy to depress it, I tend to rest my finger ever so slightly on it so I thought that maybe the clicker buttons have worn out. Could this be possible ? I'm looking at getting either a Logitech G502 Hero or the Gigabyte AORUS M5. Any thought on those two would be helpful, there about the same price. Cheers.
  9. This has been great reading about air coolers vs AIO's I have been looking into possibly buying an AIO some time in the future its been very helpful. On another note I want to ask about my mouse, I've started getting unwanted right mouse clicks in game and in general, my mouse is about 7 years old and I've played alot of arma with it so I'm wondering could this be from the mouse clickers starting to wear out or could it be a physical thing from me getting on in years. Has anyone else had this happen to them ? EDIT : Just read that According to Logitech a gaming mouse should last about 20 million clicks so at least 2 years so I think its time I got a new mouse. Sorry for going a bit off topic guys.
  10. @Groove_C Do you know if there is any performance benefits in running 2 NVMe's in a raid setup ?
  11. Here in Australia the price of SSD's, CPU's, RAM and GPU's have all started to go up in price at least where I usually get my PC parts from and I'm pretty sure the stocks will start to run out also.

    @ottaviodp I've noticed recently there seems to be more night missions generated then before is this intentional ? If it is intentional can you change it back because I prefer the missions to be more evenly balanced between night and day, not a big fan of night missions. Cheers.
