He most likely built this before those cards were released. The RTX 2060 was only released a month and a half ago and the GTX 1660 Ti was only released 2 weeks ago.

Wow that's nice. SFX, 80+ Plus Gold, and Fully Modular for $69 PLUS a steam gift card? Dang SeaSonic!

What's wrong with the 1030? It's a great 1080p card as long as you play on medium settings, which look remarkably similar to high settings on most games.

Can you send me a picture of the cable? The ports might be fine but something might have bent the last time you pulled it out or something.

  1. It could be bent, very common problem. Solution: get a new or used one for like $1.

  2. Could be a faulty port. Solution: If you have a graphics card, you should be plugging the cable into there anyways, so plug it in there.

  3. You sure it IS an HDMI cable? Solution: check the ends of the cable. Is it shaped like a trapezoid? If it is, it is an HDMI cable. If it isn't, it's something else.

  4. Pure last resort option is all else fails: Try to get a $1 video card with HDMI off of amazon to use your monitor. You can disable the card while playing games, but it will still send the signal to the monitor you're using.

Or he could just move the fans lol... It's only a 2200G this isn't an absolute emergency where he needs exhaust and intake. I moved my friend's H500 fans to the front as intake and the thermals improved on his gpu by 7C. It's simple.

You clearly don't have an understanding of basic thermodynamics, therefore this argument is pointless. If you had some kind of idea what you were talking about, I would continue this and hear you out. But since you don't even know about temperature stabilization in water vs. aluminum, this argument is pointless. I recommend you watch this video on this topic before you continue talking to anyone about this. https://youtu.be/eSOcUnn1mtQ

tf are you talking about? Those temps are quite clearly not taken after the temps on the AIO stabilize. Water takes much longer to gather heat than metal. You have to wait for about an hour under load before AIO temps stabilize and you get an accurate reading. Since this person clearly didn´t wait for his temps to stabilize, so that idle temp and load temp are very concerning as an impatient AIO test should be at ~25 C. Please know what you´re talking about before you downvote.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Why is there no 240hz gaming laptop?"

  • 12 months ago

"High end CPU with a strong GPU" I have never heard of a single case where a person bought a 240 Hz monitor that wasn't for fast paced esports games like CSGO. Nobody wants to play Skyrim at 240 Hz because there's no reason. You can hit 300+ FPS at 1080p on almost all esports games at max settings at 1080p. The reason there isn't a 240 Hz panel on a laptop is because the amount of hardware you would have to get into the screen would be too much for a laptop. Ever wonder why those 240 Hz predator panels are so damn thicc? It's because it takes a lot of hardware to hit a 240 Hz factory overclock on a monitor without it dying in the first few days.

A GT 1030 is not capable of running high end games, but I would say you got a good deal unless you got the GT 1030 with SDDR4 instead of GDDR5.

This will be able to hit a 4.7 GHz overclock and stabilize at around 80 C. 5 GHz is not obtainable with that air cooler. I would recommend a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi, a bequiet! Dark Rock 4, or a Noctua NH-D15S.

Yeah I would personally buy the 2200G if you have the money because it's more future proof and you probably won't have to upgrade it for the next 10 years.

How long have you had this CPU and what have you been doing with it? If it's just been normal use, and you're still in your warranty period, DON'T BUY A NEW CPU. Contact the retailer you bought it from and get a new CPU. If you've overclocked the chip, or done anything else to void the warranty, this action is pointless.

But, if you do need a new CPU, hope to god you updated your bios or you have to wait for AMD to send a dummy chip to help you update your bios. If you have updated your bios, and 2nd gen Ryzen chip will work fine.

  • The Cooler master liquid 240L is the best cooler option here,
  • R7 2700 better price to performance, overclocks about the same as the 2700x.

You can hit 4k 60 FPS consistently on High settings on most games with a GTX 1070. Only on Maxed out settings, which there is almost no visual difference would an RTX 2080 Ti struggle to hit 60 FPS in 4k. I currently have a GTX 1070 and an Overclocked 4k Samsung monitor and I easily hit 60 FPS with no overclock on the GPU. If you wanted to get 100 FPS at 1080p all you would need is an RX 580 or a GTX 1060.

Considering you aren't doing any heavy workloads or gaming, I don't see any point to have 16 gigabytes of memory, an R3 2200G, and a Noctua cooler. You could probably get away with an Athlon 200GE 8GBs of ram and the stock cooler tbh. Many people use them for 4k video streaming PC's and they work great. As for an Ultrawide monitor I don't know anything about those so I can't recommend anything.

It's not about having an open mind, it's about being right or wrong. Tech Power Up has shown to be biased multiple times and let us not forget that they were paid to do this review. In most other reviews, the RTX 2070 only performs at best 10% faster than the 1080. So no, it does not warrant the incredibly high price.
