News Comments > PCIe 4.0 to Deliver More Speed and Power
24. Re: PCIe 4.0 to Deliver More Speed and Power Aug 22, 2016, 15:41 Wallshadows
 
I absolutely love chambered cases where the PSU is separated from the rest of the case but am not big on panel windows so I might have to go to a H440 which is $80 off at Newegg + a 5% promo. NZXT and Phanteks make some great looking cases and are typically in the same ball park in terms of pricing and build quality.

Can it handle the massive length of modern GPUs?

I probably shouldn't have called it a shitty case because it has served me incredibly well over the years and is in a class of its own when it comes to silence.

The P182 and possibly the generations which come after it all have exceptional space when it comes to the length of the GPU and the height of the CPU heatsink. The 290x is 293mm long and it still fits even with the drive bay in place. Take it out and you have another six or seven inches of clearance to soak in all that fresh air.

It's definitely something which has spoiled me and left me a little ignorant towards. When shopping for a new case, I always forgot that dimensions matter and some cases simply have to be written off entirely regardless of how nice they are because you're 5mm too high or long.

What's this going to do for PSU requirements? If someone is using a low power card, will they still be required to get a 500W+ PSU just because PCIe 4 motherboard requires it? That's what it appears to do. Is there a option in the spec to drop to 75w or less?

It shouldn't do anything. It just means that the slot can power up to 300 watts if needed before the card requires extra power through pin connections.

I have that case, I've no desire to get a new one since my temps are all low despite the case fans being on low. I rarely hear the GPU fan go up a gear and CPU fan never does. Guess it depends some on what fans you're using with it, and I think I reversed the top fan to be exhaust. I only have a little SSD drive in the upper HDD cage, I figured the potential to block the intake fan was the main potential weakness of the design.

I have mine configured the same way with the exception of a 120mm low-speed fan occupying the area where optic drives would go which feeds right in to the heatsink whereas the other 120mm intake below it is likely being drawn right in to the graphics card and then expelled through the heatsink or possibly not at all since one of the rear fans might be sucking it out first.

When I haul off the side panel, temperatures drop by 10 - 12c which was never an issue with my old 280 and hotter overclocked FX6300. I could try and reverse some of my fans for positive pressure but without the extra dust filters it makes me cautious so I'll likely buy a cheap NZXT Source 210 or order a new batch of performance fans since I just realized I am running Enermax TB Silents.

The legends are true about the 290x. I can tell when it's working hard because my feet get noticeably warmer and all other components usually take a 5-10*c bump when it's taxed along with being what I am sure is incredibly loud to some.

This is more to do with a real shitty case when it comes to airflow though. My nearly 10 year old Antec P182 isn't built for it.

Minor tweaks on the surface but I doubt they can add anything to the game that would give it more substance. The rick and morty mods seem like a natural fit, too bad they'll get shut down.

Anything Rick and Morty is a natural fit.

Was suppose to go to a Hip streaming party tonight but I'll have to settle for watching it on CBC with some Zap'ems.

You can get up to 21 free days of time if you use the right person's referral code. You still have to put in all your information but you won't be billed a cent so long as you cancel everything as soon as you're approved.

Hey guys, guess who has Lyme Disease.

Damn, man. They start you on meds?


Heavy barrage of full-spectrum anti-biotics for 14 days. Doc said it could get better in 'several' days but if shit still sucks after the 14th then I'm sent to my family physician for another checkup.

I don't even remember getting bit where I have the rash but I guess Lyme can lie dormant for some time before symptoms appear and it's been an absolutely insane summer for Deer Ticks.

I'm going in to check and see if I have Lyme Disease but I honestly fear the wait time in Outpatients more.

I honestly never had issues with Pritchard even with my first play through. He was a snarky dick but just the way he and Jensen would bicker and interact with each other was fun.

Even if AMD can knock it out of the park with their processors, it's far too late for me. I simply got tired of waiting and built a Skylake system which blows my previous machine out of the water and I suspect this will be all I'll need for quite some time regardless of whatever performance and price AMD will achieve.

I was just wondering if they were releasing another season any time soon so I'm quite pleased to see it's another mini-expansion. Depending on how wrapped up I am in Legion, I'll do my best to give this a whirl.

So we're all in agreement then. Scripted trailers which show no gameplay are acceptable only when it has nothing to do with Activision, Epic, Ubisoft and EA.

Burn the heretic. Kill the mutant. Purge the unclean.

Also, go watch the gameplay trailer linked above. It looks promising.

I'm definitely a huge fan of this game and have been following it for a while. To see it with a release date when there was time not long ago when it went radio silent for what felt like ever is a great feeling and this is easily a day one purchase for me.

Like I said before, it's a great time to be a Warhammer fan.

It's weird that no one calls Stan Lee out for being an egotist and I'm sure he wedges himself into all his movies, Tarantino too maybe?

Terantino is probably the most annoying person in Hollywood but I'm always thirsty for his movies... except Kill Bill. Couldn't stand that shit.

You know what? I'd buy this. It's just so fucking wrong in a 'we've hit bottom' kind of way that it just feels so right.
