Are you happy with the performance? Then don't upgrade.

Not happy? Find the reason and look for a decent upgrade depending on your budget.

None the less my personal opinion a i7 6700k with a 1070 should still be good for 1080p. But am not you and only you can make the descision to upgrade or not.

Test19 is talking about the powersupply and i agree. The M12 is old and not recommended for that price. Corsair CX450 or bequiet pure power 11 are alot better. 450W would also be enough.

For 1 gpu 2080ti and 9700k.

Even a good 550W-650W would have been plenty so yes the psu you bought is good.

Corsair AX1600i is the best psu money can buy.

this case Lian Li TU150 Mini ITX ? Doesn't fit that evga psu.

You need an sfx psu like the sf600.

Evga g3 650W is already listed https://pcpartpicker.com/product/y88H99/evga-supernova-g3-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0650

For gaming the 9600kf should be a bit better especially if you overclock it.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What should I buy?"

  • 13 days ago

I7 8700 is a non k cpu so can't overclock it but that mobo is a Z370 it seems so it could technically support overclocking if you had a cpu that supports overclocking.

AFter looking around that motherboard supports up to 2666mhz speed for RAM.

You don't need to change the psu to add more RAM it should be fine.

It's all here on pg19-20 https://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/inspiron-5680-gaming-desktop_specifications_en-us.pdf

Its all in the manual ;)

There is really no need to replace (or repaste) it.

But if for whatever reason you really want to replace the pre-applied paste Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme are i think one of the best you can use.

If you look at earlier generations you could make the claim that the 3080 will be better then the 2080 ti.

But ofcourse without any specifics a rumour is just a rumour.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is 600W PSU enough for 9700k + 2080 Super?"

  • 18 days ago
  • 2 points

Just look up professional reviews (for example techpowerup) about the gpu and cpu you are using and check for the power consumption part. You will see that at full load (which almost never happens unless you stress you pc constantly) those parts won't consume anywhere near 600W. So if you go for a good psu like the sf600 (also check those reviews like jonnyguru) you will see that you are more then alright.

Also want to say that the sf600 is one of the best sfx psu's you can buy.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is 600W PSU enough for 9700k + 2080 Super?"

sf600 is a great psu so yes it's plenty for a 9700k and 2080 super combo.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "how does this look?"

A good 550W/650W psu would also be plenty for this build but overall it looks great to me.

A full loop just adds a pump and fans for the rad so not much. A good 550W-650W is plenty for your build.

If you want to use that inbuild vrm cooling on the mobo you will have to go for a custom loop.

You can use your mobo if it has the right connector to control the lights or use the included rgb controller:

Hold the button to turn on or off the lights according to the manual

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First RGB build PSU Help"

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

A good 650W (even 550W really) would be enough for your build. The current psu you have in your list is one of the best (if not the best) you can buy right now. But ofcourse all depends on what is your budget for this psu?

For rgb my guess will be that you will need 2 programs to run them all (i don't think there is one for all of them)

So for the ram, keyboard, mouse, cooler, fans and the case fans is't corsair icue.

For mobo and gpu it's msi own rgb program (i think it's called mystic light). It could also be that mystic light will see the ram not sure about that tho.

Most SSDs implement thermal throttling as a safety feature if a drive gets too hot. The closer your drives gets to the 70ºC limit that most manufacturers have, the more likely it is that the drive will start slowing down to prevent itself from failing.

Just look it up ;)

if it reaches 70c the drive will just throttle to lower the temps.

Isn't there a cable with this cooler that allows to connect those 3 fans to 1 cable that connects to the cpu fan header?

Manual says Connect each fan to the shrouded 4 pin connectors on the pump

AMD looks great just broke all time high = bullish.

Intel and Nvidia will probably retest their own all time highs in the next couple weeks/months.

Overall markets are very bullish and it's just an amazing time for traders and stockowners. How long will it last? Don't know.

There is no need but i personally always liked to seperate my stuff. So for example i have a 250GB ssd just for the OS and some smaller programs, 1 750GB ssd for games and 2 1TB ssd's for important stuff.

And besides that an external hdd for back ups.

All of that is just personal preference.

At this moment you are limited because of the igpu from that 2400g so the 1660 super will be a huge upgrade and will give you a noticable difference in performance. Then just save up for a better cpu and you are set. Otherwise with $300 you will get a medicore cpu and a medicore gpu which you probably will want to upgrade again in the future.

I don't see your monitor in the list https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/ so i would say freesync won't work with your nvidia gpu.

Use a splitter with header cha1 and a splitter with header cpu_opt.

Or like you said it's possible to run 4 fans with a fanhub or 4way splitter from cha 1 since manual says The Chassis Fan Connector supports the chassis fan of maxi-mum 1A (12W) fan power while the nf a12x15 Max. input power 1,68 W (times 4 is 6,75) and Max. input current 0,14 A (times 4 is 0,56) according to https://noctua.at/en/products/fan/nf-a12x25-pwm/specification .
